I firmly believe that Fleur Delacour and Viktor Krum remained friends after the triwizard tournament and that one night while they were celebrating Fleur and Bills engagement a very drunk Fleur bet a not as drunk Viktor that she could catch a snitch before him and so they competed and he won and Fluer lost her end of the bet saying that she would name her first born after him
and that is why their kid is named Victoire and the only reason it isn’t spelled with a k is to annoy Viktor
Reasons I think the HP fandom should talk about Viktor Krum more:
He was an internationally famous Quidditch player but showed like zero signs of being a conceited ass about it.
He was an internationally famous Quidditch player but was still in school, showing he probably still valued his education, plus he was a good enough wizard to be chosen as the Durmstrang champion by the goblet of fire.
He was an internationally famous Quidditch player with lots of fangirls, but hung around the library for ages trying to work up the courage to ask Hermione Granger to the Yule Ball, and I think that’s adorable.
He didn’t behave like an asshole dudebro when Hermione wasn’t interested in dating him.
Hermione was also used as the person he would miss the most in the second task, and I think that says less about Hermione than the people around Viktor Krum. We know he had parents. We know he had teammates. But none of those relationships were apparently more healthy or comforting than this nice girl he had just met at Hogwarts, and that makes me sad.
He had zero patience for Dark Arts and Dark wizards, even though he went to a school that emphasized both of those things.
He stayed on good enough terms with Fleur that he was invited to her wedding.
His problem solving method once included partially turning himself into a shark. A shark.
“He asked me right after he’d pulled me out of the lake,” Hermione muttered. […] He sort of pulled me away from the judges so they wouldn’t hear, and he said, if I wasn’t doing anything over the summer, would I like to -“ “And what did you say?” said Ron, who had picked up his pestle and was grinding “And he did say he’d never felt the same way about anyone else,” Hermione went on, going so red now that Harry could almost feel the heat coming from her.
Book 4 is probably my favorite simply because I love the Triwizard champions. You guys have no idea how much I want to see an AU where Cedric doesn’t die and Harry teams up with the other Triwizard champions to kick Voldemort’s ass. Fleur can be the fabulous badass who won’t take shit from anyone, Viktor is the brooding awkward boy, Cedric would be the one keeping the peace, and Harry is the baby who’s either confused or secretly judging as he watches the older three bicker.
The only romance involves Krum occasionally cornering Cedric for advice on how to woo Hermione when everything’s done.
a little something for you to consider: poly kromione
things that you can’t see on this picture, but they are definitely there: 1.) hermione is standing on her tiptoes bc she is tiny; 2.) viktor is wearing one of the trademark weasley sweaters (with a letter “v”, obviously)
