Just got through re-reading Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince.
It’s easy to see what he sees in her. Hermione’s cute, has got brains, and loads of magical talent. Too much the goody-two-shoes know it all, true, but she’s basically a good catch.
But all I see in Ron are three minorly admirable qualities: he’s tall, funny and loyal. But Hermione never laughs at his jokes and his loyalty is mostly to his mate Harry.
Granted, the Weasley clan is a great plus: Ginny seems like she’d be a great sister-in-law, the twins are well on their way to riches with their magic shop, Charlie is dragon breeder and Bill is a banker, and even if Percy is a prat, having family in the Ministry of Magic is a dead useful contact. But she can still be Ron’s friend and get to hang out with his family.
Basically, I don’t get it. What gives with the Hermione/Ron attraction?
NO, I’m not jealous. I’m *puzzled. *
