"Rowling wrote Hermione to eschew stereotypes. She doesn’t end up with the hero; she is never there to function as Harry’s love interest. She prefers Arithmancy to Divination in school. Hermione is also a total badass, despite her prim and proper reputation. (…) So often, female characters are allowed to be aggressive or rebellious, but in exchange are stripped of any traditionally feminine qualities and instead are forced to pick up traditionally masculine traits. However, Hermione is never made to do that. Most notably, she is written to be highly logical AND emotionally expressive, a combination not commonly afforded to most of today’s leading ladies."
Remember, there is nobody on this earth who has the heart that you have, and that itself is worth treasuring.”

I have been quite fond of you for some time; however I will say I've never known you as well as I would like. In my own opinion you have always been sweet & beauteous, humorous & witty, altruistic & benevolent & open minded. Telling you this anonymously isn't exactly mature, I admit. I could say all of this in person or even through Facebook, but this is what I'm most comfortable with doing. Perhaps it's because I fear you would say, "Not him…" or because I fear you might actually consider it.
I’m sorry I didn’t reply to this sooner… I just wasn’t sure how to I guess. This is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever read. I wish I could be all of those things, and I try to be, but it doesn’t always work out that way. But thank you so much for all of your compliments. I hope that you can find the courage to tell me who you are and we can be friends. -Alex
