New 'Harry Potter' posters: Okay, who wanted Harry and Hermione together?
Another day, another new set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I posters. This crop continues the unsettling tone with shots of Bellatrix Lestrange and Lucius Malfoy, and Scabior and Fenrir Greyback staring us down. View them below, along with a slightly Twilight-esque photo of Hermione and Ron (though Edward would never wear that shirt). But first, check out this surprisingly sexy image of Hermione and Harry and remember all the times you wanted those two to couple. (Not just me, I assume.)
I know their friendship is one of the books’ most beautiful relationships — that deep of a bond between teens without hormones raging is truly special. I did/will enjoy watching them fall in love with Ron and Ginny, and I fully appreciate how the Weasleys complement them. (Two of my favorite scenes in the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince were Ginny running to Harry’s side in the field and her cradling him over Dumbledore’s body. Harry needs a partner as fearless as he is, body and soul, and she’s that strong.) But the ease with which Harry and Hermione communicate, the way he held her when she was crying over Ron and Lavender and she saw through his feelings for Ginny — that’s the kind of comfort and understanding you yearn for as an adult.
