You're very welcome in the HP Forum. I hope you have a wonderful time here.
And I totally respect your opinion that Harry/Hermione should have been together, and though I don't agree with it, I hope we can have fun discussing out opinions. :)
Thanks for listing the reasons why you think Harry should have been with Hermione, but I personally felt that you didn't touch enough on the Harry/Ginny relationship. People dont' call Ginny brave or courageous because of the reasons you posted. She was a young girl in the first three books, and as Ron and Hermione did not show any feelings for each other until the fourth book, we can't judge Ginny for that. From the 5th book on, Ginny did many brave, courageous, selfless things that made her lovable for us Ginny fans. And none of those reasons were the ones you posted.
As for Hermione and Harry, the reasons you posted made many of us think of Hermione as a sister figure for Harry, because she was always closer to Harry than Ron in a sibling sort of way. As both Harry and Hermione were sibling-less kids, I felt they sort of bonded in a brother-sister fashion.
There was no evidence in the book where Harry thought of Hermione in a romantic way, while there were 'romantic' references to Cho and Ginny. And vice versa. There was never any place in the book where Hermione thought of Harry in a romantic way.
In Deathly Hallow, when Ron returns to Harry and Hermione, Harry tells Ron that Hermione was always like a sister to him.
Pg. 378 (US edition)
"After you left," he said in a low voice, grateful for the fact that Ron's face was hidden, "she cried for a week. Probably longer, only she didn't want me to see. There were loads of nights when we never even spoke to each other. With you gone..."
He could not finish; it was only now that Ron was here again that Harry fully realized how much his absence had cost them.
"She's like my sister," he went on, "I love her like a sister and I reckon she feels the same way about me. It's always been like that. I thought you knew."
Ron did not respons, but turned his face away from Harry and wiped his nose on his sleeve.
