Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling regrets ending to famous series?

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling may have written the last book in her Harry Potter series, but it sounds like she is really questioning whether her ending is the right one. Even though the books were released several years ago, it sounds like she is still questioning her decision to couple up the characters. According to a People report published on Feb. 2, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is now questioning her ending to her famous series.

"I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment," Rowling tells Wonderland, a UK magazine. "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." Of course, many fans were expecting Hermione to get together with Harry, because they are both smart and educated.

Rowling admits that the final romances may not have been ideal, especially since type-A Hermione and the laid-back Ron probably meant the two would have ended up in relationship counseling. On the other hand, Harry never really showed too much interest in Hermione.

"I know, I'm sorry, 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," Rowling reveals. "It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility." And while she hopes that she doesn’t upset some of her readers by admitting to granting Harry’s relationship with Hermione a thought, she does reveal that she is skeptical of their future herself. "I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy," Watson said.
