Should Hermione have ended up with Harry Potter instead?

It's an age-old "Harry Potter" debate. While Hermione, played by Emma Watson, is revered as a total heroine first and foremost, fan fiction still argues she ended up with the wrong guy. Many fans believe she and Harry belong together. But others argue that it was clear that Hermione and Ron were meant to be from the jump. What do you think?

But Buzzfeed also listed the reasons why Hermione and Ron are the perfect couple. It was clear from the jump that Hermione and Ron would end up together. Just because Harry is the protagonist, doesn't mean he deserves to get the girl.

J.K. Rowling must have been aware of this and decided against cliché storytelling. It would've been too easy to pair-off Hermione and Harry. Instead, fans got to see their love blossom throughout the years, from an uneasy friendship to falling in love with each other. It's the perfect love story, actually.
