Definitive Proof that Rory Gilmore and Hermione Granger Would Be Best Friends

1. Seven seasons. Seven books. Did we just become best friends?

If you're a true Potter fan, you know the significance of this powerful number and that coincidences such as these should never be overlooked.

2. Books galore.

Rory and Hermione both have a book collection that would make Belle jealous. Book clubs all day every day. Good book clubs too, without all the middle-age mom self-help books-- sorry Eat Pray Love.

3. Rory is a Harry Potter fan.

In between name-dropping Proust novels and reading Nieztche, Miss Gilmore also makes time for Harry Potter, as one should. Obviously, she must be a Hermione fan because, well, who wouldn't be? This is essential because finding out that someone isn't a Harry Potter nerd is an absolute deal breaker in the friendship game. Seriously. If you're a Twihard, or whatever they're called, we can't be friends.

4. Ten points for Yale.

The Ivy League is probably as close as you can get to Hogwarts. They even have quidditch teams now. Minus the wand waving in the halls and the dementors roaming the campus, it's basically the same. Emma Watson agrees. And she is the queen so if she went to the Ivy League you know it must be magical.

5. Witty, oh so witty.

Just imagine the banter that could happen between these two. Think about it. It must be hard for either to encounter someone that can actually understand all of the cleverness their dialogue has to offer. So if these two were to meet and -- god forbid -- converse, the universe may actually implode from intellectual discourse.

6. Rory writes. Hermione reads.

This is a textbook symbiotic relationship. A total friendship with benefits. Except one where sexual favors are substituted with newspaper articles.

7. They're both the best of BFFs.

Rory was the friend you could go to for anything. She would cover for you when you needed to sneak out of your house to play music your overbearing Korean mother didn't approve of. She would help you sort out your boy drama. And go to the library to figure out what exactly happens when you get pregnant. And Hermione will back you up when the Dark Lord wants to kill you. Even Chris Brown wouldn't question this level of loyalty.

8. So much wardrobe sharing potential.

Everyone knows that sharing clothes really makes your friendship official. Good thing that these two have basically the same wardrobe. So many schoolgirl skirts to go around.

9. The Ravenclaw to my Gryffindor.

Rory would no doubt be a Ravenclaw, and if Hogwarts houses were like astrological signs, Ravenclaws and Gryffindors would totally be compatible.
