Names :Sarat Austin & Sarah Austin
I am German born , currently living in India(from age 13) for my collage (branch:-avionics aerospace engineering ) with my cousin and sister (i call her flare because her obsession with fire )
Fell in love with Harry potter after seeing Philosophers Stone in 2001, my friend suggested to try & read the books of JKR after the 1st chapter I fell in love again.
fandom in 2006 and started reading any fic that I got my hands on :-) .
Here are my views on Harry potteri love J.K.R but that doesn't mean we'll have to agree on every thing she writes
Both 6 & 7(at least 7th ) seem to have entirely new characters with the same names and the plots seem to relate to some other books we did not read.
I quote “He saw concern and something less easily definable in Hermione’s expression. Then, as she glanced at Ron, Harry realized that it was fear: He had scared her with his talk of living with dead people” from DH ch: 22
the argument with Harry about the stone or hallows is completely out of character I mean she is always composed and rational but here she won’t even listen to Harry’s view of hallows she just denies them as a myth
similarly in HBP like Malfoy fascio she just throws the theory of Malfoy being a DE out of the window (just how many of their adventures began weird theories she just forgets )
Well I personally think her brilliance was brought down so that she could be paired to Ron .
An intelligent person like her should know that their relationship could never work ( if u give me that sexual tension as base for their bickering then u have your head where sun never shines or u are mentally retarded )
I simply hate r/hr (bikering usually happens between siblings not lovers)
If she should be paired with any one from cannon then it should be Harry or Bill
prefer Harry though because less age difference and they both understand each other too well .
If paired with Draco, snape, any female or slytherin just bile rises into my mouth by just thinking
2) Harry :-
After more than 3-4 life attempts any idiot would mature and starts preparing for next encounter no , he goes after silly crushes on girl who are nothing but pretty faces and fan girls who coincidentally he HATES (cho &ginny)
Even after knowing his destiny he does not prepares himself to the best, every thing he does or achieves is because luck and good timing , based on 3rd yearwe can tell he is powerful but just lazy & immature .
He also never appreciates Hermione properly , takes her granted even when she is the only one who stood by him till the end and even never apologizes to her for not taking her side in every argument between her and Ron even though she Is almost every time correct . he also does not even greet her in the epilogue , what kind of friendship is that ? after all they have gone through , looks like they drifted apart
never comforts her when she is feeling low ,does not stop fron others from being rude to her even though he personally knows how that feels(Ginny in HBP)
even after being nearly defeated & losing sirius to DE in DOM he still uses the same curses (stupefy etc...) in battle of Hogwarts & other fights
and NO chest monsters are present in love usually it's lust,love potion , jealousy, protectiveness
crushes are not a base for good relationship
i quote 'But you've been too busy saving the wizarding world,' said Ginny, half-laughing. 'Well ... I can't say I'm surprised. I knew this would happen in the end. I knew you wouldn't be happy unless you were hunting Voldemort. Maybe that's why I like you so much.'
i still wonder how those 2 ended up marrying In the epilogue ( crap & complete shite ) so no H/G for me, not that i don't like ginny
on the contrary i think she is really cool just i don't like the way she is paired with harry in cannon
but i still read other ships which are not on my hate list ships
i like :- harmony , H/Luna , H/Padma, hr/bill,
ships i HATE:- Hr/ron or anyone(except harry,bill or oc she is too good for others ) ,
slash which includes harry or Hermione or father and son .
every story which shows Hermione as evil or lesser .
Don't get me wrong - I've no doubt that there are great and wonderful R/Hr and H/G stories out there - but these are more the result of the writers doing extreme makeovers of Ron and Ginny (to the point that one wonders if Harry and Hermione's souls had been somehow transplanted into their bodies) or having plots which force a level of maturity and insight into the youngest Weasleys which bring their intellectual and maturity levels up.
It's the Ron/Hermione pairing that I don't like.Ron is horrible to her in three of the seven books and not that close to nice twith her in the others. In HBP, he's especially mean to her over something that happened two years previous. Also, he never, not once apologized to her for anything he said or did to her.Every time harry has to be peace maker . As a result, I don't think he's good enough for her, nor do I think he'll make her happy. That being said, it's not my universe and I don't make the rules. JK Rowling created it and can do whatever she wants with it.
Perhaps I'm allowing my own personal bias cloud my judgment of Ron. My sister was married to the same type of jerk . He would get mad and treat her terribly for days without telling her why he was mad or apologizing for it afterwords. They eventually split because it became clear they couldn't make each other happy. They wasted years being miserable because they mistook personality conflicts as sexual tension. That's Jk Rowling's explanation of the constant friction between Ron and Hermione but that's not how it looked to me. my sis used to brilliant and funny she was really cool but when she was married ,she did not even smile as often as she used to . she even had to quit her job because the jerk of a husband was jealous at her for making more money than him (sounds like some one we know) . after 3 years of being miserable she took divorce , now she is quite successful beautician and seeing a guy who appreciate her and treats her with respect,i read HBP when she was at end of her marriage so may be that's the reason i can't like Ron&Hermione and the situation is too much like my sisters ex .
take a JKR :-
According to a new excerpt published from Harry, a History, Harry and Hermione had moments that really cemented them as a couple, rather than Ron and Hermione. Here’s what JK Rowling had to say:
I tried very hard to soften it, I suppose,” Jo said. Just because someone had a view on Harry/Hermione didn’t mean they weren’t genuine, or that they were necessarily misguided. In fact, I will say this, Steve Kloves who has been the script writer on the Potter films, who is enormously insightful on the series and a very good friend, after he read book seven he said to me, ‘You, know, I thought something was going to happen between Harry and Hermione, and I didn’t know whether I wanted it or not.’
I stared at her, sensing she wasn’t finished, and a sense of foreboding crept in around the edges.
“I felt a certain pulll between them at that point. And I think he’s right. There are moments when Harry and Hermione touch, which are charged moments. One when she touches his hair as he sits on the hilltop reading about Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and two the moment when they walk out of the graveyard with their arms around each other.”
I was Holding my breath at this point. She wasn’t done.
“Now the fact is that Hermione shares moments with Harry that Ron will never be able to participate in. He walked out. She shared something very intense with Harry.
“So I think it could have gone that way.”.
could hve ?(snorts) ,well unlike JKR i think its more like should have?
