"Hermione was an important friend for Harry to have. She loved him like a sister, a mother, and a best friend, all at once. I'm not a Harry/Hermione shipper, I just think their friendship is one of the most beautiful friendships I've ever read." I agree
So true. As much as I loved the movies, my one major gripe is the gross under-development of Ginny. Ginny from the book is AMAZING. And also Bonnie Wright (Ginny) is taller than Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) which really bothers me for some reason.
