19Harry and Hermione

For some Potterheads, Hermione's perfect match isn't Ron, it's Harry. Included in that group is J.K. Rowling herself.

During a 2014 interview (with Hermione herself, Emma Watson), Rowling admitted, "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really."

It was

a gut-punch to Ron/Hermione shippers everywhere, but for those who agreed it was sweet vindication.

One internet artist, by the handle of AnastasiaMantihora, illustrated the coupling with some serious (no pun intended) accuracy.

As Harry fiddles with his snitch, Hermione is holding a book. The artist even depicted Harry's signature green eyes and Hermione's bushy hair.

It appears to be during book seven, while in the tent on the hunt for horcruxes.
