Harry Potter Blog-athon: Harry, Ron and Hermione

So we've gone through the bad guys, the good guys, the class schedules, and what we can all learn from the Harry Potter series. I've even shared how I'd react if I received my Hogwarts Acceptance Letter. Now it's time to talk about Harry, Ron and Hermione.

While I appreciate that Harry is the chosen one and all that jazz, we must not forget that without the help of Ron and Hermione, I don't think he would have surivived it all. After all, what are you without your support system? Just a boy with a scar who refuses to open Hogwarts: A History, that's who.

Harry Potter
I loved Harry as a character because even though I wanted to punch him in the face sometimes (okay, maybe throughout Order of the Phoenix), I still understood him. No one, wizard or muggle, had any clue what Harry was going through. In the end, he recognized that he couldn't do this alone and that his weaknesses were others strengths.

Ronald Weasley
Ron is probably some of the best comic relief a story has ever seen. When things are bleak and look like they won't ever get better, Ron is there to spit up slugs for your amusement. Even though Ron gets jealous of Harry and all his fame, he's a true friend until the end.

Hermione Granger
I liked this bushy haired girl from the moment she stepped into Harry and Ron's compartment on the Hogwarts Express. Despite not being exposed to the magical world previously, she doesn't get caught up in all the allure. Instead, she dives into her textbooks and learns everything she can. She proves to be one of Harry's most valuable assets throughout the series.

What do you like most about this trio?


  1. My favorite thing about these three is how much they connect. They just fit so well together that when you see one without the others, it's like they're incomplete. I love it, and I love all of them. Well...I love Ron and Hermione. I just sort of tolerate Harry, but that is party because I can't stand Daniel Radcliffe.

  2. They are such good friends to each other! I love it! :-D

  3. Love all of them! They have such an amazing friendship. And yes, I wanted to punch Harry all throughout Order of the Phoenix, but I still love him.

  4. I read the first half but got scared of spoilers before I finished. I like your writing and really love reading the Potter books just before I go to the movie. Nice blog.
