40 Things You Never Realized About Ron & Hermione
Hermione is like J.K. Rowling
Although she didn’t intend for this to happen, J.K. has admitted that Hermione shares a lot of characteristics in common with her. Both women are brainy, and Hermione’s patronus, which is an otter, also happens to be J.K. Rowling’s favorite animal.
Of course, not every single detail matches up. Hermione is also meant to resemble Lily, Harry’s mother, in some ways. Both are incredibly gifted witches. J.K. herself is obviously not a witch, but she did invent this magical world, and she would have been a great witch if witches were real. In a way, creating Harry Potter is the most impressive bit of magic of all.
