Ron and hermione dating

It is obvious to Harry, and the reader, that Hermione understands the jealousy between them, while Ron quite clearly does not, and will not for some time after.

She is written as a "grind", the sort of person who is obsessed with rules and marks, and is quite unappealing.

In the Hospital Wing, Madam Pomfrey arranges to shrink them to their original size, but Hermione deliberately has her overdo it, so that they are the correct proportion for her face. Ron invites Hermione to be his date (apparently as a last resort), but Hermione already has a date - with Viktor Krum, who had haunted the library to get closer to Hermione.

After three hours getting ready for the ball, Hermione is almost unrecognizably pretty. When she floats over to speak to Ron and Harry, Ron accuses her of "fraternizing with the enemy".

Shortly after, Rita Skeeter writes a scurrilous article for Witch Weekly suggesting Hermione is keeping both Harry and Viktor as lovers.
