Harry Potter: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Ron And Hermione’s Relationship
"I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really," the Harry Potter author said in the. Cheezburger movies love celebrities harry potter GIF. Via GIPHY. Let's be honest : Hermione is not one to suffer fools, but she always gave Ron. In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Oooh, is that Ron and Hermione playing chess together in the common room, even though she always loses?.
Overview[ edit ] Beginner warning: Details follow which you may not wish to read at your current level. Hermione Granger remains unattached for the first three years of the series. It seems that Viktor Krum is attracted to her when he arrives for the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Firebut she does not reciprocate his feelings; she sees him as a pen-friend, though it is obvious to us that he wants more than that.
When Ron 's relationship with Lavender ends, he suddenly discovers his true feelings for Hermione, feelings which Hermione has quietly had for him for the past three years or more; and by the end of the sixth book, they have become more than "sort of" together, according to Harry. They remain so, with some friction, throughout the seventh book. Philosophers' Stone [ edit ] Hermione starts off this book as a smart, but very bossy and largely unattractive girl with rather large teeth.
She is written as a "grind", the sort of person who is obsessed with rules and marks, and is quite unappealing. After Hallowe'en, however, she becomes friends with Harry and Ron, and later takes part in protecting the Philosopher's Stonehelping Harry to bypass the many obstacles leading to where it is being guarded.
Chamber of Secrets [ edit ] Hermione develops a rapid crush on Gilderoy LockhartHogwarts' new Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor, resulting in possibly a bit more than an annoyed flicker from Ron. While she never develops an attachment for Lockhart, she, along with many other girls in the school, seems entranced by him. Despite some clear evidence that his magical competence is limited, Hermione asks Madam Pince if she can keep the note Lockhart wrote giving her permission to check out a restricted library book.
It is only as the year continues, and Lockhart's competence is repeatedly challenged and found wanting, that Hermione finally loses interest in him.
Towards year's end, Hermione is attacked and petrified by the Monster that has been released from the Chamber of Secrets. When we see her in the Hospital Wing, Ron seems more deeply affected than Harry.
Prisoner of Azkaban [ edit ] Hermione is somehow managing to take twelve subjects during most of this book, though it drops to eleven after she gives up on Divination in mid-April.
Harry Potter: 20 Ridiculous Things You Didn’t Know About Hermione And Ron’s Relationship
She is far too busy, even with the Time-turner to assist with her scheduling, to have much of a social life, and when we see her she is tired from overwork and snappish. When Hermione suggests to Professor McGonagallat Christmas, that Harry's new broom might be jinxed, this causes an estrangement between Hermione and the other two. During this time, Hermione is working to try and secure a reprieve for Buckbeaka job that Harry and Ron promised to help with, but have somehow forgotten.
The return of Harry's broom could have cured this separation, but Ron's pet rat, Scabbers immediately disappears, apparently eaten by Hermione's pet cat Crookshanksleaving Ron estranged from Hermione.
We learn from Hagrid that she is feeling this separation very deeply — she is often in tears when she visits him. The two of them do reconcile when they have to start work on Buckbeak's final appeal, but they remain at least outwardly friends, rather than anything more serious.
Goblet of Fire [ edit ] Ron is apparently infatuated with Fleur Delacoura Beauxbatons student and shortly the Beauxbatons Champion in the Triwizard Tournamentmuch to Hermione's disgust. When Fleur comes over to the Gryffindor table to ask if they want their bouillabaisse, Ron is almost struck dumb.
After she departs, Ron says that she must have some Veela in her ancestry. Hermione is rather nettled by this, and says that nobody else is acting that silly about her, but Harry notices that many other students seem similarly struck by her.
Viktor Krumwho arrived with the Durmstrang delegation, and has been chosen as their Champion in the Tournament, seems to appear in the library whenever Hermione is there. It is early in this term that the abortive duel between Harry and Draco Malfoy results in Hermione's already big teeth being dramatically over-enlarged by a stray curse. In the Hospital Wing, Madam Pomfrey arranges to shrink them to their original size, but Hermione deliberately has her overdo it, so that they are the correct proportion for her face.
Matters come to a head at the Yule Ball. Ron invites Hermione to be his date apparently as a last resortbut Hermione already has a date - with Viktor Krum, who had haunted the library to get closer to Hermione. After three hours getting ready for the ball, Hermione is almost unrecognizably pretty.
Ron glowers at Hermione, livid with what the reader recognizes as jealousy, as she dances with Viktor. When she floats over to speak to Ron and Harry, Ron accuses her of "fraternizing with the enemy". After a row, Hermione angrily stalks off into the crowd, while Ron and Harry exit for a walk in the rose garden. After the dance, Harry finds Ron and Hermione arguing in the Gryffindor common room.
Hermione shouts that if Ron does not like it, then, "The next time there's a Ball, ask me before someone else does, and not as a last resort! It is obvious to Harry, and the reader, that Hermione understands the jealousy between them, while Ron quite clearly either does not, or is unwilling to accept it, and will not for some time. In the Second Taskthe merpeople are holding someone valuable to each Champion deep under the lake.
Hermione is the "hostage" that Krum is to rescue. When Harry returns to the surface with Ron and also Gabrielle, Fleur's sister, Hermione and Viktor are close to each other, talking privately; Hermione breaks away from Krum briefly to check on Harry and Ron.
Fleur is overjoyed at Gabrielle's rescue and gratefully kisses Harry, and also Ron, because he helped. Hermione is somewhat bothered by Fleur's attention to Ron, but is distracted by Viktor, who is apparently trying to retain Hermione's attention when she talks to Harry and Ron.
Shortly after, Rita Skeeter writes a scurrilous article for Witch Weekly suggesting Hermione is keeping both Harry and Viktor as lovers. Hermione wonders how Rita knew Viktor had invited her to visit him over the summer; Ron becomes upset at hearing about the invitation.
A month before the Third Taskafter surveying where the task will take place, Krum asks Harry to walk with him. Harry is amazed when Krum asks if Hermione is Harry's girlfriend, and Harry replies she most definitely is not; they are only friends, despite how much Hermione talks about him.
As the Beauxbatons' carriage is about to depart, Fleur bids Harry goodbye. Ron is once again almost completely tongue-tied in her presence, earning a vexed look from Hermione. Order of the Phoenix [ edit ] Hermione remains largely unattached throughout this book, though she seems to be constantly holding Ron to a high standard, trying to turn him into a better person.
This is answered in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Considering she becomes the Minister of Magic, she wields considerable influence within the whole wizarding world!
Thanks to the immense popularity of the Harry Potter movies, fans have a pretty good idea of what Ron and Hermione look like. This started a predictable firestorm of fan confusion - and even racist outrage - because the actress did not resemble the white character that they envisioned. Rowling had a pretty simple retort: While she stopped short of making a black Hermione canon, she also made it clear that she need not be the white woman that most fans assumed that she was.
In the books, she begins campaigning for elf rights by starting The Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Ron told her that they should free the various house elves instead of forcing them to fight and possibly die for their wizard masters. Hermione was so surprised by Ron that she kissed him full on the lips. Conversely though, Hermione was an only child so there was no brother or sister in law for Ron.
But there almost was. Just what Ron needed; another Christmas present to buy. Rowling often answers fan questions and back in she did a live chat with the BBC's website. One of the more interesting revelations from it was that she originally planned for Hermione to have a younger sister.
However, by the time of the fifth book she thought it was too late by that point to bring her into the fold.
But one half of the Romione relationship almost didn't. Hermione and Harry have to end up together in this case right? In an interview between J. Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe, Radcliffe admitted to her that he was convinced one of the three was going to get the axe at some point.
This led Rowling to confess that about midway through the series, she was considering disposing of Ron. Just because she mad in her personal life at the time. They're given the power to dock points from their own house but can't give them, they can give students detention but can't get them out of it.
Thankfully though, not every prefect in Hogwarts was a stuck up little punk. This subplot was omitted from the movie version. While Hermione makes complete sense as a prefect, Ron being selected is a little more curious.
Well, according to Dumbledore, Harry would have gotten it but he felt that Harry had enough on his plate already.

I hope you enjoy that shade thrown your way, Ron. Hermione spent an entire summer with Ron! Okay, well not just with Mr. Keep in mind that Harry wasn't with them as he was living with the Dursleys so this was probably the first time where the two were free of Harry's influence to hang out.
