Author has written 11 stories for Harry Potter.
I am a 36 year old ‘wizard’ and I have been hooked to the Harry Potter world from the time the first book hit the shelves. I always loved a good story and JKR did a good job in telling a riveting tale. It is my personal opinion that she lost the plot in the ‘Half Blood Prince’, the beginning of the tale starting with Harry and Hermione’s fight over the potions book had a great way to bring them together. Ginny was always the little sister of his sidekick, and if JKR wanted her to be the Hero’s princess, then her character should have been developed more.
JKR herself acknowledged that she had thoughts of killing Ron, even without him being dead, Harry and Hermione were characterized to be the two heroes of the tale. As fairy tale endings go the hero gets the heroine and that was the lacking in both ‘Half Blood Prince’ and ‘Deathly Hallows’. The rapport they enjoyed through the first four books and even in the fifth book was excellent. This was suddenly gone in the sixth book and that too just to introduce a relationship with a jealous person. I always thought that JKR had a debt to pay to the Weasley family and so ended up making it ‘one big happy Weasley family’.
I write for my own pleasure but if someone else agrees with my ideas, then I greatly appreciate it. Sorry folks my writing will be mostly based on a Harry and Hermione relationship, I will not overly bash any of the characters, yes even Dumbledore.
UPDATE: August 28, 2012
I watched the Deathly Hallows Part II again and though it was a brilliant movie, it left me disappointed. The movie was carried through by Daniel Radcliffe and Ralph Fiennes, even Emma Watson took a back stage, maybe it was meant to be that way? There was absolutely no chemistry between Hermione and Ron; Ginny and Harry were good, even the one between Luna and Harry was loads better, were the unit influenced by the world of fan fiction? All of a sudden a very determined and serious Hermione was replaced by a giggling school girl, and that kiss; it spoke of a ‘heat of the moment’ action on Hermione’s part rather than any deep rooted feelings. If you look at the movie by itself, you would have been excused for thinking that Harry and Hermione were a couple until the kiss between Harry and Ginny; the way that Emma grabbed Dan in a fierce hug when he was about to go off into the forbidden forest while Rupert looked on clueless, spoke volumes. Sigh! It was almost as if the crew gave up, ‘you know who ends up with whom, why bother?’
Even the movie screams of a Harry and Hermione partnership...
