Which Harry Potter character has a crush on Hermione?

Which Harry Potter character has a crush on Hermione?

This one is harder because Harry is awful at noticing little details about Hermione, but we all know that Ron had a crush on Hermione from 2nd year onwards, and Viktor had feelings for her.

Draco Malfoy has a crush on Hermione Granger throughout the first two years of Hogwarts and expresses his love for her in many ways. Draco is a misunderstood bully who eventually becomes a brilliant and talented prince.

Why is Hermione never attracted to Harry? Why fall in love with Ron instead of Harry?

Thinking from Hermione’s point of view –

  1. She’s too severe: Ron makes her laugh.
  2. She takes herself too seriously at times: He makes fun of her, kind of grounds her, but defends her when need be ( when he answered back to Snape because Snape called her an insufferable know-it-all, even though he called her that every week)
  3. She grew up as a single child: Ron had a huge family where she was always welcome.
  4. Harry needed to be a hero. Hermione had this need to be correct. She probably wanted someone who would balance her. Ron was that balancing factor. Something that Dumbledore noticed as well.
  5. Hermione was someone who helped. She would help with the homework at the end, even if the guys didn’t ask. She helped Hagrid with Buckbeak’s case. She started helping both the guys with the whole philosopher’s stone mystery without even being asked about it once. Ron, on the other hand, always needed help. Harry was the guy who always wanted to fight his battles alone. He was a martyr.

In the end, Hermione and Ron balance each other. They were best friends who are two halves of a whole. Harry would have gone ahead without either one or both of them. He wouldn’t have succeeded if it weren’t for them; that’s another topic of discussion. That’s why Hermione and Ron were perfect for each other.

Throughout the series, there have been 3. Viktor Krum, Cormac Mcclaggen, and Ron Weasley. Honestly, though, Mcclaggen and Krum make no sense. Does McClaggen strike you as the type to care about “inner beauty”?

Hermione wasn’t UGLY, but she wasn’t knockout gorgeous like Cho, Fleur, and Ginny (even SLYTHERINS admitted Ginny was good-looking) were supposed to be. As for Krum, I can see him being interested at first; the fact that she was the one girl who didn’t swoon around him must have been a nice change of pace, but to still have a crush on her years later? I don’t buy it.

Especially since, from an outsider’s point of view, she’s NOT likable. An outsider sees her “holier than thou” attitude when it comes to things she believes, like with SPEW or her absolute disbelief over things like Luna creatures and Divination and her arrogance of “not being like other girls” while not getting a chance to see her more positive traits, like her fierce loyalty.

Hermione also showed NO interest in Krum even after the second task. Only a few months later, she had agreed to go to the Yule Ball with him. Barring a huge fight, she should have still been in the “honeymoon phase”.

According to fans, everyone:

  • Humans (Ron, Harry, Draco, Sirius, Remus, Voldemort, Bellatrix, Lucius, etc.)
  • Hybrids (Fleur, Hagrid, etc.)
  • Magical creatures (Dobby, etc.)
  • Animals
  • Plants and rocks

In the books, Ronald Weasley (who later marries her) plus Viktor Krum, Cormac McLaggen, and I assume at one point Neville Longbottom, at the very least, she was his first choice to ask to the yule ball if Krum hadn’t beat him to her.

To the best of my recollection, that’s it. Draco Malfoy is a blood purist for 99% of his school years who would sooner chop his penis off than be romantically involved with a mudblood

At any point in the Harry Potter books, is Harry in love with Hermione?

Was Harry Potter ever in love with Hermione Granger throughout the entire book series? Yes, throughout the entire saga. It was just the type of love you have for a sibling, not the romantic love everyone is desperate to see.

Did Draco Malfoy have a crush on Hermione Granger? What stopped him from expressing his love to her?

Draco Malfoy expressed his ever-dying love for Hermione in many, many ways. Dramione is developed throughout the story and is the most romantic ship ever—Draco Malfoy, from the misunderstood bully to the intelligent and talented Prince.

It all starts when Draco calls Hermione a mudblood. Then, it progresses to when he says he hopes the basilisk kills her! I’m positively squealing at how cute they are together! Not to mention how Draco allows Buckbeak almost to be killed after Hermione stays up countless nights trying to help Hagrid with the appeal. She then punches him! Isn’t it so romantic?Harry Potter

It’s as if they think fighting will separate the bonds as outstanding as an unbreakable bow, bringing them together! Malfoy is such a rebel. Look at how he defies his family and believes in persecuting muggle-borns by bullying Hermione! Look at this quote revealing Draco’s longing for a sexual relationship with her:

Granger, they’re after muggles. Do you want to be showing off your knickers in midair? Because if you do, hang around… they’re moving this way, and it would make us laugh. They are so cute together. Not to mention all the other times he called her a mudblood and when he tried to kill her in DH. I ship it forever!

Just because the premise of Dramione appeals to you doesn’t mean it fits in the story J.K. Rowling has been developing.

Who has a crush on Hermione in The Half-Blood Prince?

Cormac Maclaggen had a crush on Hermione. Despite being a Gryffindor, the only person he was genuinely interested in was himself. He didn’t ask her a single question about her, instead overloading her with “look what I did as keeper in Quidditch!

She was not impressed, and indeed, after Ron started dating Lavender. So she only went with Cormac to Slughorn’s Christmas party to make Ron jealous, as she wanted to go with Ron to Slughorn’s Christmas party.

In which year did Harry have some interest or crush on Hermione?

Harry never had a crush on Hermione. He’s the narrator of the series, which means we would have known if he had a crush on Hermione.

Why does Harry never fall in love with Hermione?

Because contrary to what most people seem to think, Hermione doesn’t look like this

There is a massive disconnect between how people who only watched the movies envision Hermione and those who grew up reading the books (not that I grew up reading the books; I didn’t. I’m just familiar with how things came out, and it’s interesting to observe).

Emma Watson was a considerable miscast. We understand why they did it because movies are a visual medium, and they wanted the main characters to look as attractive as possible to appeal to the audience.

But the truth is Hermione wasn’t the kind of hot cheerleader prom queen girl the movies portray her as. Harry’s type is the athletic, active, friendly cheerleader type: Ginny Weasely.

A girl who is extremely pretty has long, straight hair, is petite, and loves sports, particularly Quidditch, a big part of Harry’s campus life. Not an eccentric, introverted squirrel girl like Hermione Granger. She has big front teeth, bushy hair, and a shrill and annoying bossy voice.

You’ll note that his original love interest, Cho Chang, is also like Ginny. And nothing like Hermione. She is described as a beautiful girl with long, shiny black hair. She was one of the queens of the campus.

Unlike Ginny and Cho, who were described as among the prettiest girls at Hogwarts, Hermione was not described as pretty and not the campus queen type. She was only described as pretty when made up for the Yule Ball.

Hollywood is like that; the leading lady has to be cast to be prettier than the supporting actresses. That’s how Hollywood works. In reality, Cho and Ginny were the hot beauties and much more attractive than Hermione.

But that wouldn’t sell the movie well, so in the film, we got this:

They have to cast the prettiest actress as Hermione and the lesser actresses in the supporting roles. That’s just how movies and television work. You generally can’t have the supporting actresses look prettier and more attractive than the lead heroine.

But men aren’t always attracted to the hottest! Can’t they fall in love with someone they’re always with, like Harry and Hermione? Sure. But it didn’t happen here, and Harry friend-zoned Hermione early on. Harry thinks of her as a sister and not as a love interest. That’s just how it is.

Many of these “Harry x Hermione” shipping results from how movies have conditioned us to have the leading man get the leading girl. That’s why they cast the most handsome actor as the leading man and the prettiest actress as the leading lady. But that’s not how it always works in other mediums like books.

I’m sure some people shipped Harry and Hermione just from reading the books, but I can’t imagine there’d be that many. My girlfriend grew up reading the Harry Potter books and never shipped Harry and Hermione. But if the Harry you grew up with was Daniel Radcliffe and the Hermione was Emma Watson, it’s a lot easier to ship it that way, especially since the movies emphasized Hermione a lot more than the books.

Why does Harry never fall in love with Hermione?

Hermione is difficult.

Don’t get me wrong, Harry loves her. He cares very deeply about her. But he doesn’t relish being around her for extended periods if Ron isn’t there as a buffer between them.

Harry liked Hermione very much, but she just wasn’t the same as Ron. There was much less laughter and much more hanging around the library when Hermione was your best friend.

Ron is funny and he’ssoft, whereas Harry and Hermione have hard edges. He gets the two of them with his easygoing temperament and quick jokes.

When Ron runs out on them, storms off into the night and vanishes before Hermione can reach him, Harry and Hermione stick together but don’t have many conversations. They will never abandon each other, but there are too many times when they don’t know what to do or say. Harry tells Ron as much when they destroy the locket together in the forest.

“After you left,” he said in a low voice, grateful that Ron’s face was hidden, “she cried for a week. Probably longer, only she didn’t want me to see. There were loads of nights when we never even spoke to each other. With you gone…”

He could not finish; it was only now that Ron was here again that Harry fully realized how much his absence had cost them.

“She’s like my sister,” he went on. “I love her like a sister and I reckon she feels the same way about me. It’s always been like that. I thought you knew.”

When Hermione bursts into tears thinking of Mad-Eye’s death, Ron knows to sit beside her and wrap an arm around her shoulders to comfort her because, despite being so different, they have an ease with each other that Hermione and Harry lack between them.

Harry’s favourite person in the world is Ron. It’s not much of a surprise that when he falls in love, it’s with someone incredibly like his best friend – she’s got the same contagious sense of humour, a love of Quidditch, and a lack of respect for rules. Ron and Ginny are perfect for Harry because they’re carefree, kind, and funny. They give him the joy and sense of belonging that he never had as a child.

The problem with Hermione is that she’s solemn and often withdrawn. She’s not as emotionally transparent as Ron and Ginny tend to be to those who know them well. She requires effort and can’t make Harry laugh as quickly.

There’s no spark. Even as friends, they have little chemistry between them. That’s not to say there’s no love because there certainly is, but that little hop-skip-jump your heart makes when you’re catching feelings never happens when they’re together. Not for either of them.Harry Potter

Harry’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie; Hermione is fretful and cautious. Their tastes are too different, and their pastimes are doubly different. Hermione is happier helping Harry figure out his dates than she would be featuring in them because Ronit’s gives her butterflies.

The movies struggled with this because Emma Watson is quite pretty, and it made no sense in that context that Harry wouldn’t fall in love with this beautiful, kind, gentle and patient witch who stuck by him through thick and thin. They created this problem for themselves by destroying Ron and Hermione both.

Harry and Hermione’s relationship is beautiful. Their love for each other is genuine and can withstand almost anything. They’re family.

They aren’t in love.

Why is Hermione never attracted to Harry? Why fall in love with Ron instead of Harry?

Why Ron? So, here’s my viewpoint.mI have several girlfriends who have fallen for Ronny-type guys, and I used never to understand what on earth they saw in them.

And then one friend explained it to me like this. “Ara (she said), you’re a cat person. You go for guys who are like cats—dignified, elegant, complex, self-sufficient, independent, and a little bit mysterious.”

“Okay, yeah (I said). All those sound like attractive traits.””Well, I’m a dog person. I want a guy who is completely devoted to me, rambunctious, excitable, friendly, dependent on me to get through the world, and even a little awkward in a cute way.”Harry Potter

“Huh. (I said)” Ron is a doglike kind of guy. He’s loyal and devoted to Hermione and endearingly helpless without her (without being so useless, it’d be a turnoff).

Harry is a more catlike guy (albeit still too doggy for my tastes—it’s a spectrum, not a dichotomy). He keeps things under wraps, shares his thoughts less, and does things more independently. He’s much more self-sufficient than Ron and genuinely doesn’t like to depend on other people (which is not to say he can’t accept help or doesn’t need it).

Girls who go for the doglike kind of guys—and Ron is a puppy—are rarely interested in catty guys.

In which year did Harry have some interest or crush on Hermione?

No year. Harry was not romantically interested in Hermione.

We are reading my son the Trials of Apollo series, and I laughed at one scene in the fourth book. I laughed because it was a barely even thinly veiled jab from Rick Riordan at a segment of the fan base of practically every series.

In the scene, the main character is talking to a supporting character. For some background, this supporting character often hangs out with a girl; they are best friends and comrades-in-arms. So, the main character is talking to the supporting character and asks if the supporting character and her friend are romantically involved.Harry Potter

The supporting character says no. The main character then questions this because they seem to be close. To which the supporting character essentially replies, “I don’t know why so many people confuse close friendship with romance. Two people are perfectly capable of forming close friendships without it turning into romance.”

My wife was reading it, and I was only paying half my attention until I heard the end of the line. But I laughed because I thought it was awesome.

Seriously, can you imagine how frustrating it has to get for these authors? They want to write about these pure and great friendships, yet, in doing so, a segment of people will twist it and misinterpret it to show that the two must be in love, that their friendship is a clear sign that they are romantically interested in each other. To each their own, but do try to keep in mind that if the author wanted something to be true. Well, they would have made it accurate.

Very few authors, especially of children’s books, go to the effort of planting secret messages into their stories. If the author wanted two people to be romantically interested in each other instead of just friends, they would make it clear that this was their intention. After all, it has to be clear enough for a nine-year-old to understand it.

Rowling showed hidden teenage romantic interest through jealousy. She showed friendship through more constructive means. There is no secret subversion to this. It is what she did. So, if you are looking for a hidden romantic interest between teens in Harry Potter, you have to look for jealousy. If you are looking for a pair treating each other right, then they are either in an open relationship or aren’t romantically interested and just friends.

Harry never shows any jealousy towards any other romantic interests that Hermione shows. The same can’t be said for Cho or Ginny.

So, ship Harry and Hermione all you want, but realize that what you are shipping differs from what the author intended. Nor is it what the author meant to show. It would have followed the established patterns or been made apparent if it were.

Does Hermione have a crush on Harry Potter in books or movies?

  • Who was the one she fixated on pretty hard on the train?
  • Who’s opinion mattered so much that she cried for hours in a bathroom?
  • Who vomited slugs because they tried to defend her?
  • Who made her easily blush when he confronted her about her crush on Lockhart?
  • Who followed his worst fear for her?
  • Who did she obsess over in her letter?
  • Who defended her from Snape?
  • Who made her so ridiculously emotional?
  • Who did she miss so much that she cried constantly?
  • Who helped her with Buckbeak’s appeal (certainly not Harry Potter. He was too busy worrying about himself as usual, ops sorry, not sorry)
  • Who did she hug and cry to after he said he would help her with the appeal?
  • Who did she apologize to (something scarce for her)
  • Who’s name did she moan (lol, sorry, i had to)
  • Who made her erupt with jealousy whenever he was given or giving attention to other girls?
  • Who did she initially want to go to the Yule Ball with?
  • Who made her turn red whenever she talked about a guy who tried to woo her in front of him?
  • Who made her frostiness seem to melt in one second?
  • Who did she talk to like they were already married?
  • Who did she try to make jealous by writing a foot-long letter before him?
  • Who did she attack with birds because he dated someone that wasn’t her (yikes!)
  • Who’s casual’ I love you’ comment made her turn pink.
  • Who’s shoulder did she cry on during Dumbledore’s funeral
  • Who was she’ sort of’ together with during the whole DH book?
  • Who’s absence made her become a crying mess for weeks?
  • Who did she kiss in the middle of a war?
  • Who did she marry and have two children with?

If you think it was Harry Potter she had a huge crush on, then I wonder why you think he looks like a tall, skinny, red-haired boy with a long nose. Just because she helps Harry and cares about him doesn’t mean that she likes him romantically. Just that she’s a good friend to him, it’s not like she is the only one who helps him. Ron, Dumbledore, Sirius, Molly, etc, all care for and help him, too, so with that logic, they all are Harry’s two wuv. Harry and Hermione always see each other as siblings.

One common thing I’ve heard people say is that” she only hangs around Ron because he’s friends with Harry.”

This is funny because you can argue in the books; Hermione hangs out with Harry mostly because he’s friends with Ron. Or really, Harry hangs out with Hermione mostly because she’s always around Ron.

Some people want Harry and Hermione to be super close, but they aren’t. That’s why they had to add super forced scenes in the movies that were initially Harry/Ron or Ron/Hermione scenes in the book to try and make it seem like they’re close.

The books made it clear that it was always Ron she had a crush on.

Did Ginny know Hermione loved Ron? Hermione knew that Ginny loved Harry and knew everything about Ginny’s relationships and crush on boys. Based on their confidence in boys, could Hermione have confessed her feelings for Ron?

Most likely. It is canon that Ginny confided in Hermione her feelings for Harry. With Ginny and Hermione being friends, it is expected that she would ask Hermione about her love life. At this point, Hermione would confide in Ginny about Ron.

Even if Hermione never admitted it to Ginny, I’m sure Ginny was wise enough to pick up on the obvious clues. The whole Ron/Hermione thing was well-known among the student body, and there were some very public spats between the two based on romantic issues. So, I’m sure Ginny was aware of Hermione’s feelings for Ron.Harry Potter

Did Hermione have a crush on Draco?

I wouldn’t answer this ridiculous question until I discovered some people truly supported or believed it.

Guys seriously. Draco and Hermione hate each other, although the hate is more from Draco. Draco was always going to dislike Hermione, but her superior intellect, her close friendship with Harry Potter, and Lucius’s fury that a Mudblood outperformed his pure, elite son cemented his ire for her (it was Lucius’s disappointment in Draco failing to keep up with her at the beginning of CoS that initiated him calling her Mudblood from that book onward).

Meanwhile, Hermione disliked Draco for his general personality, physically striking him when he insulted Hagrid for having his pet killed (which Draco initiated). Hermione also helped jinx him into unconsciousness when he mocked Cedric’s death. The dislike deepened even further as his father was known to have rejoined Voldemort, with Draco casually dropping hints about what he knows about the second war and making it clear where his loyalties stand.

Making Hermione and Draco compatible is like making Lily/Mulciber or Ron/Pansy compatible.

Before the fourth Harry Potter book, was Hermione in love with Harry?

Who knows? The books aren’t from Hermione’s perspective. Some fans say that Hermione had a bit of a crush on Harry at the beginning of the books, including some people who don’t ship them. I have personally never thought that. *If* she had a crush on him, it would have been in the later books (perhaps I will write something separately about that). But in the first book, I’m afraid I have to disagree with that theory. Recently, I have seen a comment from a fan who is pretty anti H/Hr that I surprisingly agree with in this context:

“Just because a girl is nice to you, is friends with you, thinks that are attractive and admires you, doesn’t automatically mean that she is in love with you.”
