One of the biggest debates in Potterverse is Harry’s love life. There are Ginny fans and haters and both sides are equally passionate about their cause. I myself am not a Ginny supporter. I’ve written a whole post about how Ginny and Harry are the least romantic couple ever. Today I thought I’d turn it over to you guys. If you could rewrite Harry Potter, who would you pair Harry up with?
Biggest contenders are Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, and Cho Chang. But what about the more unknown girls at Hogwarts? Who would like to see Harry end up with Susan Bones or Hannah Abbot? Daphne Greengrass? Padma or Pravati Patil? What about Mandy Brocklehurst or Lisa Turpin? Could there even be a Millicent Bulstrode supporter out there? Or someone who wants to see Harry wind up with Draco’s Hogwarts girlfriend (loosely used), Pansy Parkinson? Or Ron’s Lavender Brown? There’s even Sally-Anne Perks, a girl in Harry’s year, but so unknown that she doesn’t even have a known house assignment. Or Moon who could be boy or girl and in any house? Those are only the girl’s in Harry’s year and outside of that many more names pop up like Fleur Delacour or her sister Gabrielle.
I’ve read many fanfics that showcase several of the girls above as Harry’s perfect companion and lover. Susan Bones for her loyalty, brains, simple prettiness, and political connections through her aunt is often cited. Daphne Greengrass because she’s the supposed ice queen of Slytherin and above Slytherin/Pureblood politics but knows how to play the game and could help Harry navigate it. Padma Patil is the girl most picked from Ravenclaw, but she’s usually chosen because Harry realizes he’s made serious errors when it came to their horrible date at the Yule Ball in year four and wants to make amends.
If it were me I’d pick Hermione or Luna as they are my favorite girl characters outside of Fleur (who sadly saw Harry as a leetle boy). If not one of them then one of the other girls with little background would do because there’s so much more wiggle room to create the girl’s character and to build the relationship with.
Your Turn: Tell me who would you pick for Harry and why?
