lol at how fandom characterizes hermione as a sweet little bookworm.
this is the girl who:
- kept a nosy journalist in a bottle for a year
- permanently disfigured a teenage girl
- led umbridge to be tortured by centaurs
It’s unbearably stupid writing. Sirius and Hermione are the two characters who would know more than anybody else in that scene that trying to do that WOULDN’T WORK.
…I don’t remember this happening, but then again I only saw this movie once and that was enough.
You wanted them to wait through six years of abuse to find out ‘who he truly was’?
He strolled into their compartment in the first year and insulted Ron - understandably, their feelings were hostile.
(I would like to be anon, please)
Book Hermione still has curly hair in the rest of the book series. First two movies =/= entire series.
They could never be together. Draco was just… awful to her, especially in the books.
*Snort* @ Harry.
“She deserved someone who would challenge her,”
“who wouldn’t accept ordinary, who would want her to be the best she could be”
“She deserved someone like Snape.”
It’s less “EW Sermione/Hape or whatever the portmandeau is”, but when did Snape encourage people?
Honestly, I don’t really understand why Harry Potter “fans” fight about every little thing in Harry Potter. You fight about whether Ginny deserved Harry. Whether Ron deserved Hermione. Who should have been with who. Whether Snape was actually great guy or not. Who the true hero was. If you don’t read the books and you just watch movies that you’re not a true fan. And the thing I see the most that everyone fights about is who Lily should have chosen, Snape or James. Yes, James was a bully, and that wasn’t right. But, he grew out of it. I feel like you all forget that Snape bullied the kids at Hogwarts throughout the first 6 books/movies. He was a bully, too. In the end, James and Snape both had become better men, though. James loved Lily just as much as Snape did. I think people don’t realize that if Lily would have chosen Snape over James that there would be no Harry Potter which would have resulted in no books, and in turn would have resulted in no movies. Everyone that fought in the Battle of Hogwarts were heroes. Not just one certain person. Loving someone is not about who deserves who, it’s about love. And, Snape in the end was a truly great guy. I feel like if you’re a true fan, you won’t fight about all of these things. You will just enjoy the books/movies how JK Rowling wrote them. And, you won’t criticize the people who don’t like to read for just watching the movies. They’re just as much fans of the story as you are, and saying they’re not is just dumb. End of Story.
Not necessarily; It would just be a different story.
I thought it was far more noticeable in the movies…to the point of distracting them from the mission at hand, but still.
When the hell did Hermione feel that she was better than everyone else because of her grades? Am I missing something? She used her smarts to help people (&, y’know, non-people).
Whenever someone makes fun of Harry Potter in class, the whole room goes dead silent and everyone starts looking at me, I usually shout “You foul loathsome cockroach!” or “Filthy Muggle.” and no one ever understands why. It makes me feel special, while everyone else is obsessing over Mindless Behavior and what not, I’m with my friends obsessing over Harry Potter. It makes me proud that I’m not like everyone else, I’m the girl who always wears Harry Potter shirts and brings up Harry Potter references, and I’m proud of that! I’m not ashamed to be a “nerd”, as some say. If it makes me a nerd, then alright then. I’m a die-hard nerd.
SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE ALERT
also, if you use the word “Muggle” as an insult, you clearly didn’t understand the themes of the book
Exactly. While I was reading this, I thought “Well, you and half of the fandom, dear.”
…do they even know the date?
They bought her Christmas presents - well, Ron did - Does it quite matter?
