JK Rowling believes that she made a mistake by not having Hermione Granger and Harry Potter end up together forever in her best-selling books.
The author disclosed that she brought Hermione and Ron Weasley together for “very personal reasons,” not because they were a “credible” couple.
She said this weekend in an interview: "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really."
“For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."
Rowling revealed in an epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the series' seventh and final installment, that Ron and Hermione were endgame.
They were to marry and have two children, while Harry would wed Ron’s younger sister, Ginny. That's all she wrote ... until she changed her mind?
The novelist has now said that she believes Ron and Hermione would have ended up needing relationship counseling, The Sunday Times reported.
