JKR has said as much in interview regarding the book scenes between Harry & Hermione in Godric's Hollow, when they share some intense experiences; but she has also said that the possibility of the relationship changing could only have happened if Ron never returned.

JKR also said Harry and Ginny were soulmates. It seems hard to justify movie-Harry making a pass at Hermione when his soulmate is waiting for him back home.

So this means, IMHO, JKR might have been willing to throw H\G out the window as well as R\Hr at some point in the books.

I've been in situations where young ppl were facing danger far from home and remained true to the ones they loved. I guess it just bothers me that JKR considered not giving her hero (and her alter-ego heroine) the same level of committment.

I don't think she considered actually changing it. I think she was trying to make a point about how close Hermione & Harry were in their relationship -- as friends -- and how complicated feelings are when you're that age. She prefaced her comments in the context of whether or not Ron made the choice to go back and rejoin them. Which of course she had him do.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff...
