There is no fanfiction like a Harry Potter fanfiction! J.K Rowling herself is quite a fan of the humongous online community that spends years writing chapters about their favourite Harry Potter couples, which may not be paired in the original text. Some of these theories seem rather cool while others border on creepy (read: Snape and Hermione). But no one can deny that they’re really entertaining! So here’s a list of 5 couples the Internet ships and FanFic writers write chapters on that we’d love to see in, er, “real” life.
P.S.: Before you Google “Harry Potter fanfiction”, let me warn you that while some of it is beautifully written, some of this stuff is really graphic. To the point where sometimes I really wonder how ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey‘ got published when better work is already available on the Internet!
1) Neville and Luna
Much before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 gave us a hint of what a Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood pairing might look like, the fanfiction community was already shipping this awesome couple! Though Rowling has mentioned that both went on to marry other people later in life, we secretly hoped to see Neville and Luna join the Potters and the Weasleys on Platform No. 9 and 3/4 with their little babies. Sadly that didn’t happen, but we always have fanfiction to tell us how the wonderfully weird Luna and the adorable Neville were made for each other.
2) Ginny and Hermione
Ooo yeah! Slash fiction in all its gory! Making Ginny and Hermione fall in love with each other. Interesting, don’t you think?
3) Snape and Lily
For all those people who wanted to cry buckets after Snape confessed his undying love for Lily Potter (Evans), you can find some wonderful, heartwarming and romantic stories of both of them ending up together. Why cry when there’s a parallel universe? But really, this is one of the most heartbreaking stories of all time.
Dumbledore: “After all this time?”
Me: *Crying hysterically*
4) Hermione and Draco
The biggest and most overused trope ever: enemies falling in love! But then why is it always so interesting to watch? Even Tom Felton ships the union of Draco and Hermione!
And so should you (lot of graphic fanfic out there for these two BTW, don’t let the kids read!)
5) Harry and Draco
If Draco and Hermione is somewhat forbidden, then Draco and Harry is ranked right on top of the ‘forbidden scale of love at Hogwarts‘.
Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy is one of the first couples to be written about. So passionate were the tales that the term “slash fiction” was coined because of them! Admit it though, they’d look HOT together!
It does not sound wrong at all, Malfoy ;)
