The universe of “Harry Potter” as we knew it ended when JK Rowling released the last volume of the novel in 2007. Later, the multiple franchises of the most iconic youth character of recent decades would arrive, within which the film was the most awarded. Over the years, the author has not stopped demonstrating around her mythical creation and some of her insights caused some sting in the fervent fans of the magical story. Without going any further, the writer confessed that there was a couple in her story that, in retrospect, should not have existed.
When Rowling finished writing the story of the famous wizard, we were able to witness Harry’s marriage to Ginny Weasley and also the union between Ron and Hermione. In an interview in 2014, JK told Emma Watson that for a long time she had serious doubts about her character’s love destiny. “I wrote Hermione and Ron’s relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and much more to do with the fact that I clung to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione broke up with Ron. I know, sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, the distance has given me some perspective on it. It was a choice that I made for very personal reasons, not for credibility reasons”, revealed the writer.
In addition to the forceful confession, the creator of “Harry Potter” told Watson that in retrospect, she considers that Hermione and Harry were a better fit as a romantic couple. Of course, immediately, the strict defenders of the couple that never went were roundly emotional. Others, on the contrary, were devastated in the face of the unexpected narrative.
According to Rowling, Ron and Hermione had their happy ending, but, in her perspective, the relationship would not bear good fruit in adulthood due to the clear fundamental incompatibilities between the two. “He needs to work on her self-esteem issues and she needs to push herself to be a little less critical,” added the iconic “Harry Potter” creator.
Through her social networks, JK Rowling is constantly in charge of apologizing to her fervent fan base for some of the most dramatic turnings of “Harry Potter”. In one of her latest posts on Twitter and on the occasion of a very special anniversary, the writer once again expressed her regret.
“Once again, it is the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, so, as promised, I will apologize for a death. This year: Remus Lupine,” the author posted on her official Twitter profile.
