i09 and Hypable report that in an upcoming interview with Emma Watson, J.K. Rowling admits that she questions her choice about pairing Hermione and Ron! I feel somewhat vindicated, since I always felt like their relationship would be very difficult, based on their friendship. Ron didn't really seem to respect Hermione as a person a lot of the time, but I was willing to trust Rowling, since people can change and mature.
Rowling says that she should have put Hermione and Harry together in the Harry Potter series instead of Hermione and Ron, according to the publication's headline, which reads, "JK admits Hermione should have wed Harry."
"I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment," she says. "That's how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."
"I know, I'm sorry," she continued, "I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I'm absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people's hearts by saying this? I hope not."
How do you all feel? I like things that confirm my fanfiction ships...
