Harry: He has a huge crush on Cho
Chang of Ravenclaw, which is beyond cute, and I think she likes him
back, if only just a little. They're always blushing around
each other! I would love to see the two of them wind up together -
even if Cho is sickeningly perfect (pretty, popular, smart [Ravenclaw
is the "smart" House, in case you didn't know], and a very
good Quidditch player). I think the whole "Harry and Hermione"
thing won't happen. It's too much of the "hero gets the girl"
for my taste. And besides, they're such good friends that I just don't
see it happening. JK kind of touched base on that issue in the fourth
book. I would be afraid of their friendship getting damaged, and I
like Hermione too much to see that happen. And JK has said that Harry
will hook up with "someone that has been in all four books, but
not Hermione". That's not to say that Hermione won't come into
the picture at all
you never know. She and Harry would be a good
couple, but I just somehow don't see it happening. Hmm
check out the other possibilities!
Hermione: No. We already covered that.
Ginny: I should hope so!
Parvati: Probably not
after all, when Harry asked her to the
ball, it was "drastic action", even though he did think
she was very pretty, and she stuck up for him in the first book
(after that, I thought she was going to be a main character
not that good at guessing things, I suppose!).
Lavender: Yeah, right. I don't know why. But "Harry and Lavender
are going out!" sounds like a joke to me.
Hannah Abbot: In Hufflepuff? Are you kidding me with this stuff?
Pansy: That evil Slytherin girl? I hate her! And I know Harry does,
too, so what's with that?
Cho: She hasn't been in all four books!
That's basically all I can think of. My favorite
possibility is Harry and Ginny
Ron: Ron had a monster crush (even though nearly all the boys did)
on Fleur Delacour in the fourth book. Now, no offence to Ron, we
all love him to death, but that was aiming quite high. Fleur was
seventeen, part veela, and a champion in the Triwizard Tournament.
He asked her to the ball (which was so funny!), but she "looked
at him like he was a sea slug", according to Ron. I think Ron
and Hermione are going to hook up. At least, they'd better. This
is the couple that I'm dying for, even more than anything to do
with Harry, oddly enough! Ron seems to show his feelings in subtle
ways (taken from the fourth book):
-Kept asking "and what did you say?"
to Hermione about her response to Krum's invitation to visit him
over the summer.
-Was "grinding his pestle a good six inches away from the bowl,
because he was looking at Hermione" and also was "pounding
the pestle so hard that it dented the desk" while waiting for
Hermione's answer to "and what did you say?"
-Said "well, there's still the giant squid!" in a really
hopeful way when spotting Krum swimming in the lake.
-Really, really, really wanted to know whom Hermione was going to
the ball with.
-Had a huge row with Hermione on the night of the ball over how
she was "fraternising with the enemy" by going with Krum
- but seemed to have no objections to having asked Fleur. It seems
it's only bad when it's someone else fraternising.
-Snapped the arm off his toy Krum the day after the ball.
The thing is, people ask me "well, if
he likes Hermione, why did he like Fleur?" and I think that
he did the old one-two punch on this (I should know about it, I
). In other words, he likes Hermione a
lot, but is either afraid to show it or wants to make her jealous
(Ok, I will say this: trying to get Fleur to like anyone is difficult
should have settled for someone nearer home). JK has said that there
is something going on between Ron and Hermione, but that Ron doesn't
see it yet. Yay!
Hermione: Hermione is my favorite character.
She's smart, nice, and knows what she's doing. Very take-charge,
and she's totally one of the guys (kind of like me). I think she
likes Ron, but stupid Ron doesn't see it yet! GRRR! And she's going
out with Viktor Krum in the fourth book
perhaps a little one-two
punch? Who knows? She seems to like Krum a lot. I really want her
and Ron to end up together, though. The clues I've spotted:
-She flipped when Ron said he "didn't
want to wind up with a troll" as a partner for the ball - perhaps
the fact that he hadn't asked her yet and then said that, she took
to personal insult?
-Got mad every time Fleur did something nice towards Ron - smiled,
kissed him on the cheek, etc.
-Tried not to look at Ron whenever she talked about Krum.
-Said "I'm sure you'll find someone somewhere who'll have you"
about Ron trying to find a partner to the ball - hinting, were we,
-(From the third book) Hugged Ron. That was so cute - I mean, she
was stressed and Ron was going to help her after they'd fought,
so probably any girl would have done that, but still
On the other hand, Harry and Hermione would
be a great couple. Even though I said that I don't necessarily want
them to hook up because they're friends, they'd make a great couple
because they're friends
see what I'm saying?
Ginny: Ginny is just so sweet
it's so cute the way she acts
around Harry, so shy! I really want her and Harry to hook up. It
seems like a possibility, come to it. I mean, Harry's really nice
to her (he pretends not to notice when she does something embarrassing,
which is more than I can say for most boys!), he saved her life
in the second book, and it's too cute not to happen!
Fred and George: Is it just me, or would
it be hysterical if they dated twins? Redheaded twin girls
could happen. Fred and Angelina went to the ball together. Maybe
they're going to be a match. Has anyone else noted that Fred is
featured more than George is? That's weird.
Malfoy: Ugh, I don't want Malfoy to wind
up with ANYONE, he's such a little piglet! However, it's inevitable
that bad guys get dates, somehow
I'm guessing he'll get Pansy
Parkinson, the little brat who's so mean to Hermione. Some people
seem to think that he'll be redeemed and become nice and date Hermione!
I don't really see that happening. I mean, he's a mean little Slytherin,
Hermione's a nice little Gryffindor
see what I'm saying? No
amount of redemption can take back what he's said to her.
Hagrid: Hagrid is
I hope he and Madam Maxime (Olympe) get together!
What if they got married? And JK kind of hinted, through Ron, that
they might: "Bet any baby of theirs would weigh about a ton!"
So, maybe in the future, we'll see a half-giant hook-up.
Snape: JK has hinted at Snape getting redeemed
and a possible love affair with him and someone, but he's so mean!
Can you imagine him doing anything NICE or LOVING? I can't. Well,
I mean, Lucius Malfoy hooked up, didn't he? He's still
horrible, but he has a wife and a kid, so
McGonagall: Well, this would be a laugh
so strict and stiff, but maybe we're a bit wrong over her. She's
cool when you get down to it. (Caroline
