The news that J.K. Rowling said in a recent interview (http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/feb/02/jk-rowling-hermione-harry-ron-married) that she had Hermione marry Ron for personal, rather than literary, reasons has been all over the internet! Though there seems to have been disproportionate emphasis placed on the comment hat Harry might have been a better match, there has been a lot of discussion amongst fans around the interview and if Hermione and Ron’s relationship was plausible.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write no more than 150 words in response to the question: ‘Should Hermione have married Ron?’, preferably considering it in relation to gender. We’ll put the responses together into a feature for the next issue of Sonorus.
Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is the same as for all other submissions (keep those coming, by the way!) – 1st March. As usual, anyone can write for us, and we’ll publish anything as long as it isn’t mean! 🙂
