No doubt, but what right do they have to? People don't own the characters. They only believe they do. And people, fictional or not, do change over time. In fact that's the very essence of fiction. Without change you have no plot, and without plot, you have no story. See where this goes? It's bad for business.

If Hermione has a good, relatable reason to resort to crack (simply retconning her character doesn't cut it) then I'm all for it. Then again, I never had any stakes in Harry Potter.
