LOL he isn’t !!! Taylor made me do it so she can admit that she biases jimin now and I was just being a good friend by helping her. I swear jk is still my ult bias - but if I’m being honest, moonbin is somewhere up there cause he got me feeling some type of way 🤧
Gurll if there will be another love interest for y/n I hope it's not that kdrama cliche where jk realizes he loves her because she doesn't have eyes just for him anymore...but I trust you so I'll just wait patiently~
thIS WON’T BE A KDRAMA CLICHE BECAUSE NOPEDY NOPE NOPE NOPE
Rowling totally undervalued Ron & R/Hr in that interview she did with emma watson- saying things like "i didn't do r/hr for credibility reasons" or "the attraction itself is plausible but the combative side of it-not sure you could have got over that in an adult relationship, there was too much fundamental incompatibility" AND "In some ways Hermione and Harry are a better fit" "Hermione struck with harry- not ron which says something about ron-" etc so that's why I think jkr undervalues Ron. :(
I kept my mouth shut about that whole thing because, honestly, I think the entire article was ridiculously blown out of proportion. I didn’t get why people were so upset about it. I think her actual criticism of the ship—that they would bicker too much and possibly need counselling—is completely legitimate because Ron and Hermione did bicker all. the. time. And that they were young and passionate and maybe needed to grow up a bit to make each other truly happy.
What they actually said:
Watson: I don’t know. I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.
Rowling: Yes exactly.
Watson: And vice versa.
Rowling: It was a young relationship. I think the attraction itself is plausible but the combative side of it… I’m not sure you could have got over that in an adult relationship, there was too much fundamental incompatibility. I can’t believe we are saying all of this – this is Potter heresy!
And then, yes, they ramble on about the tent scene and JK wondering if Harry and Hermione may have been better together. She wondered, youk know? And that’s her…her right to do. Here’s what she said:
Rowling: And actually I liked that scene in the film, because it was articulating something I hadn’t said but I had felt. I really liked it and I thought that it was right. I think you do feel the ghost of what could have been in that scene.
Watson: It’s a really haunting scene. It is funny because it really divided people. Some people loved that scene and some people really didn’t.
And then a bit about Hermione sticking with Harry through till the end, not Ron, which is, y’know, canon and part of the book and something that needed to happen for Ron’s character. This. Like this is…you know…such a large part of Ron’s character development. She’s not bashing him here, they’re just talking about him…
Rowling: That is just it, you are so right. All this says something very powerful about the character of Hermione as well. Hermione was the one that stuck with Harry all the way through that last installment, that very last part of the adventure. It wasn’t Ron, which also says something very powerful about Ron. He was injured in a way, in his self-esteem, from the start of the series. He always knew he came second to fourth best, and then he had to make friends with the hero of it all and that’s a hell of a position to be in, eternally overshadowed. So Ron had to act out in that way at some point.
Rowling: Oh, maybe she and Ron will be alright with a bit of counseling, you know. I wonder what happens at wizard marriage counseling? They’ll probably be fine. He needs to work on his self-esteem issues and she needs to work on being a little less critical.
Watson: I think it makes sense to me that Ron would make friends with the most famous wizard in the school because I think life presents to you over and over again your biggest and most painful fear – until you conquer it. It just keeps coming up.
Rowling: This is so true, it has happened in my own life. The issue keeps coming up because you are drawn to it and you are putting yourself in front of it all the time. At a certain point you have to choose what to do about it and sometimes conquering it is choosing to say: I don’t want that anymore, I’m going to stop walking up to you because there is nothing there for me. But yes, you’re so right, that’s very insightful. Ron’s used to playing second fiddle. I think that’s a comfortable role for him, but at a certain point he has to be his own man, doesn’t he?
Watson: Yes, and until he does it is unresolved. It is unfinished business. So maybe life presented this to him enough times until he had to make a choice and become the man that Hermione needs.
Rowling: Just like her creator, she has a real weakness for a funny man. These uptight girls, they do like them funny.
Watson: They do like them funny, they need them funny.
I don’t know. I just don’t see it. The interview was largely about Hermione and it was all so over-hyped by (shocker!) hypable and I just don’t see the undervaluing.
I love Ron TO DEATH but I don’t see the big deal that people saw in this.
Everyone, however, is free to interpret as they will!
