harry potter and the generic tag

one of the things I like about the current “hermione granger is black” movement is the way that affects how attractive hermione is deemed to be. especially in the fourth book, when krum could have taken almost anyone to the ball, and he asks hermione, the girl he genuinely likes, even though no one else even imagined they could be a match. the way ron and harry only “notice” hermione is a girl when they’re struggling to cope with finding a date. the way she straightens her hair for the ball and everyone barely recognises her, and she could have done that all along, but its too much hassle for every day and its not really her. I just. I like the way these things work with black!hermione.
