Rachel Berry and Hermione Granger are very much alike.
They’re both rather small, yet surprisingly strong for their size. They’re both brunettes. They both have something they’re insecure about. Rachel’s nose, Hermione’s teeth (and when those are fixed, her hair). They’re both insanely beautiful, but in very unique ways.
They are both brave, outspoken, passionate, bossy, and confident while still having small insecurities. They’re both well known for being overachievers. They both have a small, limited group of friends, but they are very close with said friends.
They are both dating complete and utter assholes who love them so much. Finn Hudson is probably one of the biggest douche bags on the planet. But he adores Rachel. And we all know that Ron Weasley has the emotional range of a teaspoon. But Hermione is his world.
Another similarity between the girls; my OTPs with them are complete crack!ships. With Hermione, it “Fremione”, her and Fred Weasley, one half of the Weasley twins, and Ron’s older brother. I live off of this ship. The compatibility with these two is mind-blowing.
For Rachel, I’m on board the Titanic, also referred to as “Faberry”, meaning our lovely Diva, and Quinn Fabray. I ship them to the point of tears. I will go down with this ship. I want them to become canon more than I want to breathe.
And yet I continue to support Ronmione and Finchel to the point of obsession.
