J.K. Rowling: Hermione moest eigenlijk met Harry Potter trouwen

J.K. Rowling heeft een bom gegooid in de Harry Potter fancommunity door hardop te zeggen dat ze de relatie van Ron en Hermione had moeten schrijven voor Harry en Hermione:

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

“I know, I’m sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”

Emma Watson liet ook wat van zich horen:

“I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”
