Why Ron Weasley Deserves All Your Love
Jancy Richardson

Of the three main characters from the Harry Potter series, Ronald Weasley is definitely the most underrated. He has received a lot of undeserved hate, especially since the release of the movies, but in reality Ron has always been the perfect person for Harry and Hermione to be friends with. His kind heart, quick wit and unwavering friendship make him one of the best characters of the entire series. Whether you are a long time Weasley lover or you have never given Ron a chance, this list will remind you of all the things that make Ron great.

1. He's Loyal

Ron is an intensely loyal friend. From defending Hermione to facing his biggest fears in order to help Harry, Ron proves time and again that his friends can count on him. Sure, he's prone to jealousy and makes mistakes in the face of immense pressure (The Forest of Dean), but he always comes back. Harry said it best himself when talking about why Dumbledore gave the Deluminator to Ron, "No, he must have known you would always want to come back."

2. He's Funny

One of my personal favorite things about Ron is his ability to make a joke out of anything. The wizarding world as Harry, Ron and Hermione knew it was a scary place, but Ron always managed to remind everyone to find the light in the dark and laughter in moments of great terror.

3. He's Smart

In what was probably the most epic game of chess ever played, Ron proved to everyone that cleverness did not belong solely to Hermione. His knowledge of the wizarding world far outweighed that of either of the other two members of the trio. He added street smart and a quick, logical brain to their already impressive collective skill set.

4. He's Brave

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F25%2F636024798937966648-1749611088_Ron-Weasley-GIFs-ronald-weasley-23647872-500-203.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1015&h=2dcb2231ea945f0d35a81b2ea5ae0479ba2c459bafe4e8e7204d3630d557e100&size=980x&c=2138488946 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F25%252F636024798937966648-1749611088_Ron-Weasley-GIFs-ronald-weasley-23647872-500-203.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1015%26h%3D2dcb2231ea945f0d35a81b2ea5ae0479ba2c459bafe4e8e7204d3630d557e100%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2138488946%22%7D" expand=1]

The boy's a Gryffindor so it's obvious that he is brave, but what is really impressive about Ron's courage is that he is constantly afraid, but does what he has to anyway. He conquers massive personal fear to fight the evil around him. You only have to think about the fact that he went to Aragog with Harry even though he is terrified of spiders (Aragog are literally his Boggart) to realize that Ron is constantly pushing his courage.

5. He's Adorable

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F25%2F6360247938475685602048599258_ron8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=628&h=278d279eb3e345467964dcb934e235ff1775846ac299a7168c5c7b07231ce872&size=980x&c=509899020 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F25%252F6360247938475685602048599258_ron8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D628%26h%3D278d279eb3e345467964dcb934e235ff1775846ac299a7168c5c7b07231ce872%26size%3D980x%26c%3D509899020%22%7D" expand=1]

Ron has been adorable since he was young. You can see it in the way he isn't ashamed of his love for food, or the way he doesn't know he's got a smudge of dirt on his nose, or when he proclaims defiantly that he's going to be a knight. Grown-up Ron is adorable too, just look at how he pulls off this roar.

6. He's Relatable

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F25%2F6360247914573946981180781346_ron6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=786&h=05fcc5a469e996a5bdf214d9d2e929d53921ea374f1c80fb9bcc85797b5fd4b1&size=980x&c=236237764 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F25%252F6360247914573946981180781346_ron6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D786%26h%3D05fcc5a469e996a5bdf214d9d2e929d53921ea374f1c80fb9bcc85797b5fd4b1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D236237764%22%7D" expand=1]

Without a doubt, Ron is one of the most relatable characters in the entire Harry Potter series. His flaws are open and obvious in ways that Harry's and Hermione's aren't able to be. His envy and pride are what so often earn him criticism from Potter fans, but in reality they are a part of what makes him great. In a world full of extraordinary happenings, it is important to have normal characters with real human problems.

7. He's Got A Great Family

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F25%2F636024786435169295710975302_ron2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=81&h=f79fad2165ea88453047152f2a66ee566fd60b5b1bdd4b878e16949e12db9a0d&size=980x&c=80518070 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F25%252F636024786435169295710975302_ron2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D81%26h%3Df79fad2165ea88453047152f2a66ee566fd60b5b1bdd4b878e16949e12db9a0d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D80518070%22%7D" expand=1]

I don't know anyone who wouldn't want to be a Weasley. Ron loves his family passionately, even through the pressure he feels from his older brothers and the trouble he is constantly in from all the rule-breaking he does with Harry (that Howler, though). They've got plenty of love to go around and a house that is filled with laughter, fun and hand-knit sweaters.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
