Welcome back to the Harry Potter 30 day Challenge! The question for day 12 is: Favourite ship?
I have two answers for today! From JKR’s books its Ron and Hermione and from the world of fanfiction its Draco and Hermione!
This is a very recent development actually. I wouldn’t want JKR’s story to be changed in any way. But in my recently concluded semester we had to write a dissertation and one of my friends chose the subject of fanfiction. The genre itself is fascinating but I was more excited about the fact that she’d chosen Harry Potter fanfiction as her main example. That’s when I started reading Dramione fanfiction and I loved it (some of them are really well written).
I love Ron and Hermione and I think they really complement each other, especially book-Ron and Hermione.
Their relationship is gradual and based on a solid foundation of years of friendship, and constant bickering too.
But they are great together.
I really like the scene where Ron says Hermione instead of Lavender when he’s in the hospital (about time wasn’t it?).
But I also think that Draco and Hermione could have had a real chance if not for all the obvious societal restrictions, atleast in fanfictions they could.
Hermione is one of the few people who would probably understand the decisions that Draco has to take. She doesn’t come with all the prejudices about Muggleborns and Purebloods and her character is such a strong one that she could be the one to make Draco question his very upbringing, like she does in the fanfictions. Who better than Hermione, the brightest witch of her age and a Muggleborn, to make Draco realize that all these prejudices are baseless?
So there you go, that’s my answer for today!
Until tomorrow 🙂
