    The heart is a fickle thing, even in one the most successful fiction series of all time. J.K. Rowling admitted Sunday in The Sunday Times of London that she regrets writing the Harry Potter series with Hermione Granger ending up with Ron Weasley. “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” she says. “For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.” She said she understood many fans were upset that Hermione didn't end up with Harry, but that” It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
