The truth is that Ron is my hero. He’s always there
for his friends — sometimes belligerently, but there nevertheless. He’s
also the comic relief in stressful situations; the funny guy with a
great one-liner. And no matter how scared he may be, he will put aside
his fears to support and protect the people he loves. To me, that
represents true courage.
“…a certain pull between them…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 the moment when they walk out of the graveyard with their arms wrapped around each other…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…” - JK Rowling.
