Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
I'm excited about this question because as much as we talk about favorite moments, quotes and characters, our favorite couples from the Harry Potter books don't always get the attention they deserve. Now I know that the series wasn't romance heavy but I feel like we have a ton of solid ships to choose from! One of our first examples of a wonderful pairing would be Mr and Mrs Weasley. Those two have got to be one of the cutest, sweetest and most beautiful relationships I've ever read about. THEY'RE JUST SO FREAKING ADORABLE OMG! *ahem* sorry about that >.< Lupin and Tonks are another favorite because poor Lupin deserves love as much as anyone else and I was so happy that he let someone LOVE HIM. And, I'm assuming that Ron and Hermione will be a popular pick this week, with good reason, theirs was a relationship 7-years in the making, and I don't care what anyone says, they make an AWESOME couple. O.O
Anyway, regardless of my love for these pairings, I really only have two OTPs in the series. My first one will come as no surprise to my fellow Potterhead bloggers: Harry + Ginny (do I need to specify that I mean their relationship IN THE BOOKS?! You all know, right? I thoughts so.) Since Harry is my favorite character, I wanted him to find a proper mate, especially after his disappointing interest in Cho. Ugh. And well, when Ginny finally allowed us to see the real her, I felt like no other girl could be a better match for my Harry. Their chemistry was ON FIRE and certain scenes with the two of the in HBP had me wishing JKR would break her rule and give us more romance so I could swoon over the two of them at length.
I know that they're not a couple here but they have more chemistry here than they ever do after. *ahem*
My other OTP, isn't really a couple, but I ship them for having THE BEST bromance in the series. Sirius + Lupin. I.can't.even.they're.so.cute.together. and OMG THE NEEDED each other *cries*
