Ron and Hermione ... a love story

(You need to be a Harry Potter fan to understand this post.)

Poor Victor Krum.

Alas, yes. As he said himself, What's the use of being an international Quidditch player if all the best girls are taken?

I always wondered, exactly how old was he and how old was Ginny when he wanted to hit on her?

Well, Krum was two years ahead of Harry, Ron and Hermione and the rest of their year, which would have made him three years older than Ginny. So I'm guessing he was about 18 at the wedding, and Ginny would have been 16 or closing in on it. (I'd have to do some MAJOR research to nail that down definitively -- and, while I'm a fan, not sure how far I'm willing to delve!)

For some reason, though, I identify more with Ron and Hermione's romance more than Harry and Ginny's. Maybe because I've always believed that being friends first makes romance ever so much more lasting -- or perhaps it's because Ron and Hermione are more ~real~, Harry being in an impossible situation, and all the rest.

But I do have a soft spot for them :)
