" Hermione storms off, and Ron, stunned, says Hermione is quite clearly missing the point.

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.

After the dance, Harry finds Ron and Hermione arguing in the Gryffindor common room.

Towards year's end, Hermione is attacked and petrified by the Monster that has been released from the Chamber of Secrets.

When we see her in the Hospital Wing, Ron seems more deeply affected than Harry.

Despite some clear evidence that his magical competence is limited, Hermione asks Madam Pince if she can keep the note Lockhart wrote giving her permission to check out a restricted library book.

It is only as the year continues, and Lockhart's competence is repeatedly challenged and found wanting, that Hermione finally loses interest in him.

The return of Harry's broom could have cured this separation, but Ron's pet rat, Scabbers immediately disappears, apparently eaten by Hermione's pet cat Crookshanks, leaving Ron estranged from Hermione.

We learn from Hagrid that she is feeling this separation very deeply – she is often in tears when she visits him.

It seems that Viktor Krum is attracted to her when he arrives for the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but she does not reciprocate his feelings; she sees him as a pen-friend, though it is obvious to us that he wants more than that.

When Ron's relationship with Lavender ends, he suddenly discovers his true feelings for Hermione, feelings which Hermione has quietly had for him for the past three years or more; and by the end of the sixth book, they have become more than "sort of" together, according to Harry.

They remain so, with some friction, throughout the seventh book.

Hermione starts off this book as a smart, but very bossy and largely unattractive girl with rather large teeth.

Hermione is somehow managing to take twelve subjects during most of this book, though it drops to eleven after she gives up on Divination in mid-April.
