Zabini gave a tiny little cough that was clearly supposed to indicate amused skepticism. An angry voice burst out from behind
“Yeah, Zabini, because you’re so talented … at posing… .”
“Oh dear!” chuckled Slughorn comfortably, looking around at
Ginny, who was glaring at Zabini around Slughorn’s great belly. “You want to be careful, Blaise! I saw this young lady perform the
most marvelous Bat-Bogey Hex as I was passing her carriage! I
wouldn’t cross her!”
I wish there was a pairing between Slytherin and Gryffindor by the end of the series. I think that would have made everything better. Maybe it’s one the the reason I ship Dramione and Blinny so much (no hate to other ships, of course)
Tall, willowy, graceful and elegant and French-manicured and soft-spoken—he dates girls with pearls at

Not all of us like the fact that Harry ended up with Ginny and Ron ended up with Hermione. We ship what we ship and that’s about it. No need to explain or defend ourselves. We don’t care if it’s AU. And we sure as hell don’t need anyone’s approval because, as crazy as it sounds, not all of us care about canon.
That’s the whole point! Making worlds within our fandom. Creating the ‘what ifs’ and ‘what could have happened’ in our OTPs.
You don’t like it…not our freakin problem.
Just keep your narrow minded hatred and lack of understanding out of our tags and go cry to someone who actually cares.
