Favourite Couples From the Harry Potter Series
The Top Ten
Romione for the win! This was honestly probably the second couple I ever shipped. I read the books when I was 7, so the first ship was Harry and Ginny after reading because. Anyway, this is probably my favorite ship out of all fandoms! It's beautiful how it ends up. I love that Ron makes fun of Hermione's efforts with SPEW, and house elves, but really he supports her, and when he says they need to protect the house elves, that's when she kisses him. I love the way that they went through the whole series arguing and disagreeing, while they really care about each other. Notice how often she turns to Ron before Harry. Ron and Hermione deserve this number one spot!
This ship has definitely earned top spot on this list. Hermione and Ron are made for each other. Hermione is a very serious concentrated person and Ron is a more easy going loves a bit of humour kind of guy. I think the two personality traits compliment each other and they bring out the best in one another
Again, it was pretty unique how the side-kick got together with the heroine of the series. Their constant fighting throughout the series showed they had deep feelings for one another.
Sure. Then I ship James / Snape, if you don't mind me saying so. Yes, Ron & Hermione has great literal value but I judge by my own feelings.
The person who says Ron is an ugly freak is an ugly freak themselves. HE IS NOT!V 45 Comments
Their relationship is not just cute but inspirational. What Lupin says is true - Tonks could get a young, fit, rich man that isn't shunned from society out of prejudice, only she doesn't. She wants him and doesn't give up until he sees why she loves him so much. In the Deathly Hallows, Tonks goes to protect Remus instead of staying home safely. When they die, they die together.
They are so cute together! She loves him despite the fact he is a werewolf, and face it-they're the dynamic duo... died right after having a child though... :(
Ok just read the part at the end of the sixth book at the hospital wing after the death eater attack. I just kept on awing through out the entire time!
My favorite ship! Tonks could get a young and fit man but she didn't. The only man she wanted was Lupin. She chose to fight because she couldn't stand not knowing if he is alive or not. When they died they died together (and I'll lie if I would say I didn't cried at this part).V 16 Comments
I believe this couple really could have been something amazing! While I was a Ron/Hermione shipper from the start, I found their relationship grew a bit boring after a while and didn't make much sense for someone as strong minded and intelligent as Hermione. While a Harry/Hermione ship makes more sense canon wise, I found that the possible dynamic between Draco and Hermione would have introduced such an incredible aspect to the story, with Draco getting some much need character development and Hermione breaking out of her typical, and somewhat overused, involvement with Harry and Ron. It would have also brought some much needed attention to a house that I felt was over-portrayed as being nothing but single-minded and evil throughout the ENTIRE series.
Although this couple may not work in the canon version of the series for obvious reasons, if written right, the dynamic relationship between these two characters could have been something incredible. The way Draco would have had to overcome what he had been brought up to believe to fall for a girl that represented everything his family, and many within the Slytherin house, despised would have left room for some very interesting and profound character development. Character development that I personally felt was a bit lacking throughout the series, especially the end.
Come on, guys, even Rowling herself has admitted that Hermione and Ron's relationship is likely going to end up badly. (Marriage counselling and divorce, anyone? ) She's also admitted that she considered putting Draco and Hermione together. Oh, how I wish it was true and that the idea actually materialised. The two of them are actually fairly equally matched, after all. Intelligence, pride, etc... whereas Ron is nothing like Hermione.._.
Dramione would have been an amazing twist and would add a beautiful flavour to the series. It would be the epitome of the saying 'Love conquers all'. They would have been a combination of Jily and Snily which would have made them the ultimate power couple.V 52 Comments
I believe that Harry should have gotten with Malfoy instead of Ginny. It seems like Ginny could be pushy at times when Harry needed sympathy but she was there when he needed a friend to get him on his back again. Who can do both? Draco Malfoy. Harry needs a challenge, so basically Malfoy. They could bring out the best in each other.
This shipping is the absolute best! like seriously, harry spent most of sixth year after draco, and the two were always around and talking about each other all throughout the books, and in the end, like harry rescues draco in the come and go room and draco doesn't identify harry when he is presented in the malfoy manor and harry said that draco's wand was FRIENDLY with him...come on!
Harry was obsessed with Draco for the longest time, and we all know that Draco talked about how 'awful Potter' was. And the fact that they are total oposites make it even more interesting. All the other ships with Harry or Draco are boring in my opinion.
Drarry is just so... rah! They just fit, and their fights are so cute and cuddly but they love eachother anyway! Better than Romione anyway... Its not cliche!V 35 Comments
This ship is probably the best ship in all the series. They are literally opposites, that's why they're so perfect for each other. Remus Lupin brings out the good in Sirius Black and vice versa. He was there for him when Sirius's parents abused him and Sirius accepted that Remus was a werewolf. They bring out the best in each other which is why they're so perfect for each other.
I adore this ship! These two characters bring out the best in one another and are just so accepting. I think they would be perfect together and I can't imagine any reason why they wouldn't be together.
Oh my lord! That's like saying Harry and Ron were in love.
NO No! I definitely 100% do not ship this at ALL! I love them as friends and all but I DO NOT SHIP THEM! I ship ronks TOO MUCH for that AND like Sirius way too much. So sry.V 10 Comments
Lily and James really loved each other. They're seriously perfect for each other. James was really arrogant and immature as a teenager, but he really grew up and changed for Lily. He sacrificed so much for her and Harry, and he really became one of the noblest characters in the series. He completed Lily, and she completed him.
As for Snape, yes, he did do the right thing at the end, and he loved her too. But he shouldn't have turned on Lily in his fifth year. He seriously hurt her, and he joined a group that was bent on destroying people like her. That's not how people should treat their best friends. And before her death, he was fine with Voldemort killing James and Harry if Lily got to survive. At that point, he didn't care about who Lily loved. He only cared about the idea of him being together with her. Ultimately, he did protect Harry and fix his mistakes, but James is just a better person for Lily.
James died in hopes that Lily and Harry would live. Snape didn't care about Harry or James, he just wanted Lily. James may have been a little bit silly and arrogant as a teenager, but he grew up to be a brave young man who died protecting his loving family. Lily obviously didn't just marry him because he made her, she's strong and independent enough to make her own choice, and her choice was to marry James. Lily loved James and James loved Lily. They loved Harry and Harry loved them back.
Harry's parents died while protecting him from Voldemort. While James may have started out as a jerk in high school, his true colours eventually came through, thus causing Lilly to fall in love with him.
Never really liked this ship that much. We only know them from Snape's memories and judging by them it makes no sense that they got together. - RisingMoonV 15 Comments
Now with this ship, I can totally relate to.
I was really attentive at school and I loved books. Over the years, I grew a very close friendship with a boy. He and I started out as normal friends, but then we started to grow closer until he was probably my best friend.
I always felt like we were brother and sister in a way. And then things got a little weird when my childhood friend started to have a crush on him.
I had never seen this guy as well, a love object. They ended up together and I was really happy for them.
As you can see, this is starting to sound a bit like the Harry Potter series. Both Hermione and I were quite similar as people, (though perhaps I was a bit less bossy! ) And the friendship she and Harry had reminded me quite a lot of the friendship I had with this guy.
Reading the series as I grew up was brilliant.
But then, the next chapter of our friendships reflected more of the movies.
My two friends were still going ...more
I don't really know.
I, like most other people, always thought that Harry/Hermione would happen at first, not fully because of their characters, but because of that whole "Hero ends up with Heroione" thing.
But as I read on, I realised JK Rowling had other intentions.
By the end of the series, I was relatively happy about how everything had turned out.
Ron and Hermione seemed to be happy together in both the books and the movies, and the pairing itself was quite cute.
Harry and Ginny seemed very emotional and powerful together, and I liked how their characters had moulded together in the books. I was disappointed however with Ginny's portrayal in the movies. I do not criticise Bonnie Wright, but more the script writers themselves. I understand that they had a lot to put in the movie, and Harry's love life should certainly be in the background a bit. But they could at least do book Ginny the honour of putting a bit of flair into the movie ...more
This ship is so cliched. My gosh, how many romantic book plots have done this Hero ends up with Heroine thing? All of them. Except Harry Potter. That's what makes Harry Potter special. Shipping this is basically trying to make the romance like all those other books. If that's what you want, I won't stop you.
Ummm, I think they're better off as just friends, but if ron never existed then this would be fine. -ROMIONE SHIPPER!V 38 Comments
Even though this couple was not canon in the books, I always looked forward to them being together whilst reading them. I hadn't seen any of the movies, yet I still liked the idea of the two weirdos falling in love. They are a very cute couple, and I wish they would have gotten married.
I always thought they liked each other.
The best couple in the world! (Falls over laughing) I really loved the idea of them and it was a little weird for them to be together, but I love the little idea of weirdos together!
They balance each other perfectly!V 18 Comments
Harry and Ginny forever! Anyone, who thinks Harry and Hermione should be a couple, have obviously only seen the movies, and not read the books. Hence, they can't appreciate what a truly awesome character Ginny is, and what great chemistry these two have. I'll bet the directors themselves were Harmonie fans, which is why they focused on Harry and Hermione so much, without developing Harry and Ginny's relationship. Ginny's funny! People always miss the point that Harry likes funny people. He trusts Hermione, and admires her brains, but in the fourth book, Harry himself feels he prefers Ron's company to Hermione's, because he's more fun. Hermione was just too serious for him. Harry and Hermione have a perfectly platonic relationship. There's no spark between them, like there is between Ron and Hermione. Hermione fits the role of Harry's big sister, way more than that of a lover. Ginny is just like Harry is, she's adventurous, brave, funny, smart, she loves Quidditch. She's his perfect ...more
I actually wrote an eight-page paper for a college English course defending my OTP. My central argument was that she is probably the sturdiest character in the entire series. True, she hasn't gone through half as much as Harry, but she has seen her fair share of horrors, and in spite of this, she always reacts calmly to whatever life throws at her. Possessed by Lord Voldemort? Barely sheds a tear. Fights alongside her crush? Holds her own, even after breaking her ankle. Endures a year of continuing torture? Openly rebels at every opportunity, culminating in the battle of the century, in which she fights with courage and heart and doesn't give up despite having just lost her brother and (presumably) the love of her life. It goes without saying that Harry would most likely develop severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and strong, sturdy and optimistic Ginny Weasley is just the person he needs.
They should be 1! Ginny liked harry from the very beginning. Her ultimate crush was always Harry. They had many things in common such as a sense of humor, courage, determination, and bravery! Harry and Ginny forever!
Ginny crushed on Harry just cause he was the boy who lived. When she first meets him she seems a bit obsessed with him just because she read about him in a book or whatever. If Neville were the boy who lived, she probably would've crushed on him instead. - RisingMoonV 45 Comments
Wish he could have had her for a little while. He really loves her and they where always friends. But she really belonged with James or there would be no Harry Potter. So sad in the end. He really died loving her. If only, for even a day, it could have happened
The literary quality Lily and Snape's tragic romance is strong enough to surpass Romeo and Juliet's. I can't think about their relationship for more than a minute without crying.
I've always thought of James as an arrogant prat who doesn't deserve Lily. I can see Lily and Snape getting together way better than Lily and James. Another thing, if Harry weren't alive, Neville would defeat Voldemort.
I like the way they just surprisingly spring out to be a couple. The way Snape confessed to Dumbledore about his love to Lily saying 'Always' was truly heart-touching.V 13 Comments
I love how Fleur stands by Bill at the end of the Half Blood Prince even though a lot of the other characters thought she was shallow and only liked Bill for his looks. They are a background couple in the series but my personal favorite.
I love how even though Fleur is seemed to be this really shallow person who seems to only care about looks, and beauty, shows everyone that she really has a heart of gold and will love Bill no matter what.
Even in the darkest of times they managed to stay together and when many thought that fleur wouldn't love him because of his scar she saw past his appearance and always has. Bill also stayed with Fleur after Molly disapproved of their relationship.
There is no way Bill and Fleur would break up. They are perfect for eachother. I love it when they dance in their wedding. Any scene with them, I look forward to.V 3 Comments
I think he would make her fun side come out more and she would mellow him out. I really think they should've had a shot at it instead of Ron and Hermione
I ship Hermione with a few people, but I do love this particular ship. I always thought Hermione� - Fred would have worked out well in the books.
They are much more compatible than Hermione and Ron. - RisingMoon
Actually, J.K.Rowling was planning to kill Ron Weasley, and put Hermione and Fred together in the end.
I would have prefered that, even though I liked Ron. - Naila
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Angelina with either twin, but then I'm just not a big fan of the way JK writes romance.
Yeah. Its bad and beyond creepy. Worse, people support it.
I didn't even know which twin Angelina was with. Fred went with Angelina to the ball, but I don't remember them being officially together. Am I just unobservant or was the mention too obscure and too buried under other stuff?
No, they are not a great couple (in the book or movie) because we didn't even see them get together or any before they had a kid
In the Cursed Child you see Draco actually care about Astoria and his son Scorpius - FavoriteFightingFrenchman
What a fool J.K. rowling is for not giving so much information about Astoria Green-grass!V 3 Comments
Ron & Ginny's parents, were very kind to both Harry & Hermione, plus almost everyone else whom they knew.
Don't make me cry best relationship ever

I love them! They even each other out and I love to imagine that Hermione was the one who helped him after Fred died.V 2 Comments
Hermione belongs with Fred. Ron and Lavender were a cute couple. - RisingMoon
Ron should have ended up with lavender not hemione...Hermione deserved more!
Adorable lavender loved her won won and he loved her.V 1 Comment
I love them as a couple. I liked how Remus never encouraged bullying Snape and went out of his way to act nice to him even though Snape hated him. - RisingMoon
So surprised this isn't hight they seem perfectV 2 Comments
It's cool, but Luna and Neville are better.
I will still forever ship Neville and Luna. - RisingMoon
