"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
I absolutely love their friendship. It's beautiful. I don't agree at all with the people who say Harry and Hermione should have ended up together. It wouldn't have half of the story it is if they had. But then who would Ron end up with?
