For Everyone Who Thinks Hermione Should Have Ended Up With Harry

You need to sort out your priorities.

This is Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. You’ve probably heard of them. Their best friend is a guy called Harry Potter. You’ve probably heard of him too, but he’s not that important compared with Ron and Hermione, tbh.

Because Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger are, without a doubt, the most important literary couple of all time. All. Time.

“But what about Romeo and Juliet?” I hear you cry. “What about Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, or Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy?”

1. Let’s start from the very beginning: From the moment they met, we all knew that Ron and Hermione were meant to be.

2. Theirs is the classic hate-to-friendship-to-love story. And it’s beautiful.

Warner Bros.

3. Remember in their first year at Hogwarts, when Hermione was all, “It’s LeviOsa”? You probably thought they hated each other, didn’t you?

Warner Bros.

4. Think again. Because later, Ron used Hermione’s advice during that class to literally save her life.

5. And then, later, Ron totally put himself directly in the face of danger ~just~ to make sure Hermione was safe. And also probably to show off a bit.

And, OK, yes, he was also helping to save the Wizarding World from Voldemort or whatever. But that’s less important.

6. Remember when Ron stepped in to protect Hermione after Malfoy called her the Worst Thing Imaginable?

7. And then he ended up vomiting slugs for hours afterwards?

Warner Bros.

Would you do that for just a friend? No, I didn’t think so.

8. What about when Hermione was petrified by the Basilisk, and Ron just wasn’t the same?

Warner Bros.

9. And then when she was revived, everything was back to being perfect again, and Ron made this face:

10. And what’s a budding love story without an awkward handshake, because they can’t just admit that they love each other and hug?

Warner Bros.

It’s pointless, that’s what it is.

11. Prisoner of Azkaban was when they started to bicker like an old married couple pretty much constantly, and therefore solidified their own fates.

12. Also this:

Warner Bros.

Just leaving that there.

13. Remember when Malfoy was a dick to Ron, and Hermione was so ready to fight him?

Warner Bros.

Small aside: Still confused about the weird replacement Goyle.

14. “Oh, but this just means they’re good friends,” I hear you saying. “Hermione obviously belongs with Harry, romantically.”

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

Does she, now? Does she really?

15. If she belonged with Harry, then why wasn’t it Harry who was all jealous when Krum invited Hermione to the Yule Ball?

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

16. I’ll tell you why: Because Harry was too busy being a bad date to Parvati, because he was hung up on Cho.

Warner Bros.

“Hermione who?” – Harry, probably

17. It wasn’t Harry who was so jealous of Krum that he accused Hermione of ~fraternising with the enemy~.

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

18. Can you imagine Hermione saying this to Harry? Can you? I don’t think so.

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

19. Hermione and Harry don’t wear matching striped shirts.

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

Couples who match together stay together.

20. Harry doesn’t make Hermione laugh like this:

Warner Bros.

21. What does Hermione smell when she’s around Amortentia, the most powerful love potion in the world? She smells Ron.

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

22. Remember when Hermione put the Confundus Charm on McLaggen so that Ron would become Gryffindor Keeper, even though he was dating Lavender at the time?

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

23. What about when Hermione spent all of sixth year crying on Harry’s shoulder, because she was upset that Ron was with Lavender?

Warner Bros.

24. Remember why Ron and Lavender broke up?

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

25. At Bill and Fleur’s wedding, Ron could barely take his eyes off Hermione. It was adorable.

Warner Bros. / Apple / BuzzFeed

26. And, during the same wedding, Ron got totally jealous of Hermione’s ex, and then this happened:

Bloomsbury / Scholastic

Everyone could see that they were supposed to be together. And those are the best kinds of relationships.

27. And then that night they definitely fell asleep holding hands.

Warner Bros.

Notice they’re still wearing matching stripes.

28. The idea of Hermione ending up with Harry is so terrible that it is literally the result of the most evil magic ever. Literally.

Warner Bros.

Do you REALLY want to support the same ‘ship as LORD VOLDEMORT?

29. Even when Ron left – and Hermione spent most nights crying – he came back because Hermione called his name.

Warner Bros. / BuzzFeed

30. And when Harry and Ron were trapped in the cellar of Malfoy Manor, and Harry was trying to find a way to escape, all Ron could think about was saving Hermione.

Warner Bros. / Bloomsbury / BuzzFeed

31. And not only was their first kiss the best and most important first kiss of all time…

Warner Bros.

32. But it was so, so much better in the book.

“IT’S NOW OR NEVER, ISN’T IT?”

Mr and Mrs Weasley forever.
