Readers and viewers everywhere have been stupefied. After years of knowing that Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger were living happily ever after, J.K. Rowling reveals that Harry and Hermione should have been together.

Tell us something we don’t know.

Ron and Hermione were clearly a recipe for disaster. What happens when the magic is gone? Well, the simple answer would be to produce artificial feelings with amortentia, but let’s assume that the Weasley couple is opposed to drug use. A few years down the road, Hermione would be frustrated with Ron’s general lack of wit and guts. “Thick,” as she would call him.

And what can be said about Ginny? She’s basic. My guess is that she spends her time drinking pumpkin spice lattes and watching “Pretty Little Liars.” The Chosen One is way out of her quidditch league.

But at least Rowling admitted her mistake. She knows her beloved fans can’t stay mad for long.
