Next Movie’s resident Twihard has weighed in on which couple is more epic: Edward and Bella or Ron and Hermione. His vote goes to Edward and Bella and here are some of his arguments:
Does any person dream about a romance where you befriend someone and gradually fall in love over the years? No! Any man who takes the “friend approach” with a woman hoping it will blossom into more is sorely disappointed and broken after hearing about her sex life with frat boys. If a couple does get together after years of friendship, like Ron and Hermione do, it’s because they’ve just settled for each other. The fantasy we all prefer is a romance with instant chemistry. Bella and Edward experience love at first sight (sure, despite the fact Edward looks like he’ll vomit at the time). Bella’s enticing scent overpowered urges he thought he’d quelled years ago.
Have you ever heard of a Team Ron? No? That’s because it doesn’t exist. Potterheads may like Ron and Hermione as a couple, but they’re just background to Harry’s epic battle. Twi-hards have posters of Bella and Edward in their bedrooms as inspiration for the love they want. 99.9 percent of fans will never experience the same level of romance, but they know what it’s like to long for someone and want the glee that comes with getting them. The reason we watch fantasy movies like “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” is for the escape. We want our fantasy couples to look like Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart, not like people you could date if they weren’t famous.
