Internet Win of the Day: J.K.’s Second Thoughts

Just something(s) I thought were awesome for reals …

Two takes on J.K. Rowling’s recent comments that maybe Harry Potter‘s Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley really shouldn’t have been the Ross and Rachel, the Jim and Pam, the Ted and the mother of the Hogwarts world—the first written from the perspective of a reader, the second from that of an author.

I found both pieces really interesting, especially in relation to one another; in fact, I think the EW story is a great example of the third point from Nathan’s post.

Because both of these writers deserve to win the Internet today, I’m handing out two points instead of the standard one: one to Erin Strecker (@ErinStrecker), the Entertainment Weekly reporter who authored the open letter—if you look at her Twitter header, you’ll see why—and one to Nathan Bransford (@NathanBransford), the author of several books, including the Jacob Wonderbar series.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this is as close as I’ve ever come to being a Potter scholar.
