Christmas Countdown: Guest Post by Kim Harris Thacker
ATTENTION! HARRY POTTER SPOILERS (movie and books)!!!
My favorite couple of the year would have to be Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. I just saw the movie of Harry Potter 7 Part 1, and while I adore the Harry Potter books (J.K. Rowling is a genius), it was nice to see the romantic tension on screen. Though Hermione and Ron don’t officially come together in this first part of the seventh movie, I could see their romantic relationship building. And after all the books and all the movies, I thought, “It’s about time!” Their romance is just so right. They’ve been friends for years, they’ve been through more together than the average couple (at least, they’ve face a heckuvalot more death together than the average couple), and they’re just plain perfect for each other. Ron tries so hard to impress the ever-intelligent Hermione, and Hermione is so understanding of Ron (except for that bit where he ran off in the forest–but he deserved what he got from her, in my opinion, horcrux hanging around his neck and making him wacky or not!).
Ginny and Harry also have a tender romance, but perhaps because Ginny doesn’t get as much book or screen time as Hermione and Ron, I just don’t long for her and Harry to be together like I long for Harry’s best friends to be together! Don’t get me wrong–Harry deserves love in his life, if anyone does. But his romance with Ginny doesn’t make my heart zing like Hermione’s and Ron’s romance does.
What’s your favorite romantic or hinting-at-romantic scene in the seventh Harry Potter book or in part one of the seventh movie?
Thanks for letting me guest blog, Alexa!
Oooh, I love Hermione and Ron! They're just perfect for each other. Both of them have faults, but they work through them. I have to say, though, the scene with *spoiler alert* Harry and Hermione dancing made me almost want the two of them get together–so cute!
I agree, Meredith!
Thanks for sharing Kim 🙂
And Meredith I absolutely LOVE that dancing scene too. I also want Hermione's red dress and that bag would be mighty useful too 😉
No kidding–the bag, Alexa! Wouldn't that be handy? The ULTIMATE diaper bag!
