Harry Potter: 20 Things Ron And Hermione Did After Deathly Hallows
Their first stop in London is at the Leaky Cauldron, a pub where all the patrons Harry and are both nervous and honored to have the opportunity to meet him. Ron introduces Harry to such details of wizard life as Quidditch (a game a bit like Harry also meets a somewhat annoying, overachieving girl named Hermione. It's never a bad time to traffic in Harry Potter nostalgia, but it's especially timely on Throwback Thursdays. As such, let's all recall the very first. From their very first meeting, Ron decided that Hermione was his second-least favourite person on the Hogwarts Express (after Draco Malfoy, of course).
Both had been ostracized at their previous schools, although Hermione not as much as Harry. She was aghast when he revealed that he'd been forced to deliberately do poorly in his schoolwork so as not to be punished for showing up his cousin.

She declared heatedly that she'd not let him even consider such a thing at Hogwarts! They briefly discussed what they'd read in their course books, and Hermione demonstrated one of the spells she'd learned by fixing his broken glasses.
Harry decided that his new friend was simply brilliant. She showed him some other spells she'd learned and he tried them out.
He soon realized that this Hermione Granger was a very good person to know! The conversation turned to the houses at Hogwarts, and Hermione recited what she'd read about each of them. She wondered if they were allowed to request a house, or if they were simply assigned to one. Harry offered the opinion that Ravenclaw would suit her best, but he wasn't sure about himself. Hermione thought she might rather have Gryffindor.

The two shared a shy smile as they agreed that they hoped they'd end up together. About an hour and a half after had Hermione arrived at the station, but still a half hour before their scheduled departure, quite a few more students had begun to show up. Hermione wondered nervously if they should change into their school robes. Harry noted that some students were already wearing them, but others were not.
They decided that perhaps it was a good idea to do it then, before it got too crowded. At that point both glanced awkwardly at each other.
With a touch of embarrassment, Hermione explained that she'd asked Madame Malkin when she bought her robes, and had been informed that only underwear was worn beneath them. Hermione agreed, and he went out into the corridor to stand guard. While waiting he determined that he would not think of Hermione inside the compartment in her underwear, so naturally, he could think of nothing else.
By the end of the previous school year nearly all the girls in his class were wearing bras, whether they needed them or not. From what he'd noticed of his new friend, she was one of the ones that did. Trying to get his mind off that area of her anatomy, he next found himself wondering what color her knickers were.
Groaning to himself, he resolved to concentrate on the doorknob until she was finished. Suddenly the door opened, and Hermione was standing before him attired in her new robes. Harry couldn't help shooting a glance at the small bumps on the front of her robes, but fortunately, Hermione had no experience with boys checking her out so she didn't notice. She gave a quick twirl and asked him how they looked, and he nodded his approval.
Back inside their compartment while she took her turn outside, he quickly changed, glad to be rid of Dudley's shirt and trousers that didn't fit. While on the subject of his hand-me-downs, he decided to ask Hermione if she could repair his taped up trainers too. It occurred to him that he was becoming close friends with a girl.
Not like a girlfriend, though, he wasn't ready for that yet.
She would just be a friend who was a girl. But now that he thought about it, that could work out well for him down the road. When he did get to the point where he wanted to date a girl, he would already know her.
And even if he didn't date her, she could help him out with other girls. It was a win-win situation. Soon other students began to arrive. One was a distressed round-faced boy named Neville who was looking for a lost toad. Harry and Hermione introduced themselves, and shared a smile at Neville's reaction to hearing Harry's name. Hermione offered to go help Neville look for his toad, instructing Harry to hold down the fort. The nod of understanding she gave him as she left let him know that she realized that he'd rather not wander through the train sticking his head in each compartment and subjecting himself to all the stares of his fellow students.
Harry nodded back his appreciation and settled backing his seat to look out the window. Only a few minutes before the train was due to leave Harry noticed a family of redheads come onto the platform. They looked like an interesting mix — a rather pompous older brother, a pair of twins who sounded like troublemakers, a nervous looking boy who Harry guessed was a first year like himself, and a younger sister who was clearly too young for school yet.
Minutes later his compartment door slid open and the youngest redheaded boy looked in.

Harry was a bit annoyed when the new boy, who introduced himself as Ron Weasley, stared at him and had the nerve to ask to see his scar, but he sighed and complied, moving his hair aside to reveal the oddly shaped disfigurement. Hermione took her seat next to Harry while Neville settled in next to Ron, and Hermione briskly introduced herself.
The rest of the train ride went relatively smoothly, as the four new students became acquainted with each other. There was some unpleasantness when Draco Malfoy arrived to introduce himself and arrogantly inform Harry about who the 'right sort' of people were.
These comments set Ron on edge and for a few moments it looked like a fight might break out before the haughty blonde decided the odds weren't in his favor and left. A snack trolley arrived just past noon, giving Ron and Neville the opportunity to explain wizarding sweets. Hermione looked dubiously at the chocolate frogs, but was eventually persuaded to try one. Harry had to bite his tongue to keep from laughing at Hermione's indignation when Ron tried to cast a spell on his rat, Scabbers.
It doesn't sound anything like any spell I've read about. Where did you learn it? Ron sullenly admitted that he'd got the spell from his brother, George, who he suspected was playing a joke on him. Upon hearing this Hermione launched into a mini lecture on the etymology of spell terminology, which she had read about in one of her reference books.
Neville stared at her, amazed that a muggleborn first year could know so much about magic. Harry shook his head in amusement, while Ron sat back and scowled. He really didn't care for this bossy know-it-all, but he could see that she and Harry were friends, so resolved to try to put up with her.
The wide-eyed wonder was back on the faces of the two newcomers to the magical world when they reached Hogwarts. The four new friends shared a boat on the ride to the castle, gasping in awe at the first sight of the magnificent structure. They huddled together as they waited to enter the Great Hall, Hermione nervously reviewing spells that she might be tested on under her breath until Harry took her hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze.
As they entered the imposing chamber Harry's jaw dropped as he looked up past thousands of floating candles to see what was apparently empty sky, with stars twinkling in the darkness. Seeing this, Hermione leaned close and whispered to him that the ceiling was enchanted to mimic the sky outside. Harry grinned and squeezed her hand again. Hermione was the first of their group to be sorted.
Harry gave her an encouraging pat on the back as she nearly ran up to the stool and jammed the Sorting Hat eagerly on her head. Neville's name came up a short time later, and he was sorted into Gryffindor as well. Soon Harry's name was called. A loud murmur went up from the students as the most famous wizard of their generation stepped forward. After being assured by the Hat that he would do well in any house, Harry asked to be placed in Gryffindor with his friends.
Even if she's not a fan of the merchandise like the constipation-causing U-No-Poo, Mrs. Weasley must feel proud of her sons' success and the knowledge they work well together.
There's no better way to honor the memory of Fred Weasley. Adults and children alike watched the match from their VIP box--except for Ginny whose career as a Quidditch journalist naturally led to her reporting live from the event.
The match featured Bulgaria against Brazil. Regardless of past jealousy, Ron openly rooted for Viktor Krum and Bulgaria to win, as did all individuals participating in the Dumbledore's Army reunion--though Victoire and Teddy were more interested in each other than the Quidditch.
All of them were openly joyful when Bulgaria won, finally giving Krum his first Quidditch World Cup championship. It must've felt exhilarating to catch the game-winning Snitch, especially in contrast with the Snitch he caught to make Bulgaria's loss more respectable in the nd Quidditch World Cup against Ireland. This is no surprise to anyone, especially given how the locket Horcrux brought out the worst in him, though of course he ultimately rose to the occasion by returning to save Harry's life and destroying that same Horcrux.
Despite the tolls taken by bearing Voldemort's Horcruxes, as a family man and co-manager of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, Ron seemed to do his best to cope and live an overall positive adulthood.
She used his career change from Auror to co-manager of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes to justify her claim, also adding in that a lifetime of being overshadowed by Harry Potter contributed to his mental illness as well. Rita Skeeter is an unethical journalist at their worst and yet she's almost impressive in how she can turn the smallest words or deeds into a sensational story. At this point, Ron and many of his family and friends have become targets of Rita's stories and haven't let it hurt them.
Ron surely followed suit. It certainly hasn't damaged his spirit by the time of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. After receiving his first ever Chocolate Frog on the Hogwarts Express, the treat came with Dumbledore's card, offering Harry his first look at Dumbledore's face and a brief biography. For future generations, some of their first acquaintances with Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Harry Potter will also come in the form of Chocolate Frog cards.
All three of them eventually were featured on their very own cards. After a life spent collecting Chocolate Frog cards, Ron was most excited about the honor, describing it as "his finest hour.
Just as Dumbledore's biography mentioned his relationship with Nicholas Flamel and his defeat of Gellert Grindelwald, it's also worth wondering which individuals from their lives would merit mention in their biographies. Making life better for house-elves and abolishing oppressive, pro-pureblood laws changed the magical world for the better and she continued that work as Minister. The Cursed Child demonstrates her dedication to her position and using her power for good.
Fortunately she's not alone in her powerful, yet daunting position as Harry Potter himself has become Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
Even if he's not the most reliable with paperwork, Hermione can count on him where it really counts. Growing up with Ministers like Cornelius Fudge and Rufus Scrimgeour showed Hermione everything the position shouldn't be, while working alongside Kingsley Shacklebolt showed her what it could be.
And unlike Minister Archer Evermonde who forbade witches and wizards to help Muggles during World War I, Hermione would never let such injustice occur. With the lessons left by her predecessors, her unparalleled knowledge, courage and resolve makes her a perfect fit as Minister for Magic.
They thought that friendship would continue when they went to Hogwarts, as did their parents. Everything changed in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child when as expected Rose was sorted into Gryffindor and Albus was shockingly sorted into Slytherin.
Rose became popular while Albus became an outcast, his only friend Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius. Belonging to rival Houses was already going to be a difficult barrier, but their contrasting social situations only made it worse, as did Rose disproving of Albus befriending a Malfoy. Albus and Rose's closeness as both cousins and friends sadly crumbled for the time being. Even without being at Hogwarts, Ron and Hermione could see how Albus was struggling in many respects and hoped Rose could help him.
Meddling with time creates multiple alternate realities, during the first of which it is revealed that Hermione became the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts. In this timeline, she never married Ron and in extension never gave birth to Rose or Hugo Weasley. The alternate reality is obviously intended to show a worse version of the magical world as a result of Albus and Scorpius meddling with the Time-Turner.
Harry Potter is in many ways a feminist story, but the suggestion that not marrying Ron and having children would make Hermione a mean person is not feminist at all. It's also worth considering that being a Hogwarts professor doesn't seem to make her happy either, while she's portrayed as much more content working at the Ministry of Magic in the original timeline.
They had a son named Panju Weasley. Marriage to Padma didn't work out as well as his marriage to Hermione did in the original timeline, though. Ron's humor and joking nature faded and he became a solemn man. The changes Ron and Hermione undergo with their personalities and relationships is disconcerting for Albus to witness, especially given a lifetime growing up with his loving aunt and uncle. The differences that the alternate timeline yielded for Ron and Hermione is not the determining factor in Albus and Scorpius deciding they need to use the Time-Turner again, but it is definitely a contributing factor.
The creative choices made with this alternate timeline may have caused some fans to reconsider their feelings on certain subjects. For example, some fans don't like that Ron and Hermione ended up together, but the alternate timeline seems in part to try and convince these fans that a world where Ron and Hermione don't end up together is a world for the worse.
