Seven years later with the tremendous success of her Harry Potter series, movies, merchandise, even theme park (with Diagon Alley in the works); Author J.K. Rowling finally comes clean with a shocking revelation:
Hermione, the bushy haired genius Muggle born wizard who has accompanied Harry since his first book, should of been the main romance to titular character Harry instead of ending up with Harry’s best friend Ron Weasley. With the multinational success of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling tells interviewers that the fans reactions to the books and the new movies that were being made before the series was even complete drove her to rewrite her original plot and Hermione ultimately friendzoning Harry for his ginger mate Ron. A decision Rowling now admits was a mistake.
J.K. Rowling is no stranger to making waves with her wizarding tales, as her books have sparked controversy worldwide with religious communities who say the British author is teaching witchcraft to the impressionable youth, and sparked further outrage when Rowling announced that Albus Dumbledore, the Headmaster of Harry’s school Hogwarts and famed as a Merlin level Wizard, was homosexual and had a romance with another male wizard in his youth.
This new revelation has quite taken the air out of the Hermione/Ron fandom who most have grown up watching actress Emma Watson and actor Rupert Grint, who became the real life Granger and Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, grown up and eventually romance one another while the title hero crush on Cho Chang and then eventually stealing secret kisses with Ron’s sister.
