When people say they ship Ron and Hermione it is not just because they’re cannon or it is because it was the way J.K Rowling wrote it. People love Ron and Hermione, because both of them they know what it is like to be alongside Harry in his fight against Voldemort. It is clear to most, and if not all the Hermione and Ron may not belong together, but they balance each other out. Ron protects and defends Hermione and vice versa.
He likes her, she likes him, they’re really different, but they’re prefect. Ehh, it’s just going to happen.”
