Definitely not.

It was a bit of a twist that Ron and Hermione got together, and it made the books better in my opinion.

Harry and she pairing up would have been far too boring and predictable, and would have led my mind to their future and how the real drama would be their inevitable clash and breakup.

 

I don't think that Harry should have even ended up being "the chosen one".

Neville Longbottom would have been a better avenue I think.

He fit the prophecy, been the true underdog achieving greatness, would have flipped the story on its ass (in a good way, a great way), and it would have made perfect sense for Dumbledore and his associates to put all the attention on Harry Potter so that Neville would not be actively hunted by Voldemort and his posse.

So yeah, Harry should have just been a big old decoy for the real chosen child.

Harry Potter would have contracted wizard syphilis in real life. Hermione, Ron's sister, Chinese girl, Luna Lovegood, Professor Mcgonagall and even those Indian twins would have been pregnant by the 6th year ;)

If I ever read Harry Potter, I could make the worse pair up, and then say it would be the best pair up. How dare reality get in the way of my sarcasm. It doesn't matter. I'll make a weird pair even though I've only read the first book years ago.

Harry's romance mistake is not going with Marceline

I enjoyed the pairings well enough.

I enjoyed the thought more of Ron and Harry becoming brothers through Ginny.

I wish there was just anything about Neville snd Luna, they are probably my favorite characters.

Who's Rin? Is there a sequel that I missed? Or am I just dyslexic and read the whole book wrong?

It's that one asian girl that harry kind of digs. That is her sister and she goes to the hogwarts in some asian country. It's called... Hmmm.... Dragonpimples? 

 

Wait does this mean hermione is a lesbo?

Picky picky.

My thoughts on it that there are no mistake

While obvious that Hermione and Ron would end up together, the pairing in the best in the book, because it was written to be that way, there was obvious attraction there and if JK Rowling twisted the ending to it being Harry and Hermione together, it would've been disingenious to what JK Rowling had written in previous books.

I don't like how it ended, "all is well" is a shit ending to a book.


Because I can...

I love JK, but she needs to shut up. She just talked to like, USA Today or something about this was all, "Yeah, maybe they should have..."

No.

Shut up, you don't even hear yourself.

 

My own pairing preferences aside (Harry/Snape, Harry/Draco), I'm perfectly happy with him and Ginny. For females, Luna is a happy second option for me.

 

I could literally talk for hours on this subject, so I'm going to leave it there unless there are further enquiries.

Im all for same sex pairings but Harry and Snape seems so wrong to me due to Snape being so very in love with Lily.

He would just make Harry wear her dresses while they played hide the Slytherin.

No, as others have said that is a bit boring, Hermione is too good for Ron though, she should have ended up with Ginny, now that would have been better!

I like that Harry ended up with Ginny. I likes that her little childhood crush in books 1 & 2 came true for her. A pairing that I would've liked to see, and would've been highly entertaining, would have been Hermione and Draco. If you've never thought about that watch A Very Potter Musical. It's hilarious.

See, a theory that I often operate under is that his homosexuality is a reason for their friendship crumbling. She wanted something he couldn't give-type thing.

 

In all honesty, in terms of Harry pairings, Snape is my number one. It just works.

 

(For the record as well, if Harry had been female and had had red hair, THE ENTIRE WORLD would have shipped it. Just saying.)

I can see where youre coming from.

Maybe i just wanted to see lily with snape so badly myself that i cant deviate.

Just..that kind of love isnt real, it doesnt exist outside of fiction and my heart broke alongside his.

I know what you mean. I think that's a lot of why I need to see him happy and with love.
