Fred Weasley and Hermione Granger
I know what you’re thinking, and all I can say is this: I know. Do you think I wanted this to happen? Do you think I wanted to ship this? All I can ask is that you think about it.
Now, I will acknowledge that I’m asking a lot. I’m asking you to set aside all reasonable sanity and picture the high-minded, rule-abiding Hermione pairing off with Fred, who was the resident Hogwarts prankster and (I think we can all agree) definitely the more incorrigible of the twins of Weasley.
Just give it some time. It’ll grow on you, I promise. Tonight when you are lying awake in bed, you will remember I said this, and it will make sense to you.
