Okay, so I'm about to ask the ONLY question that needs to be asked rn: Are Tom Felton and Emma Watson dating or not??? Honestly, I—a glorified Potterhead—am getting pretty freaking fed up because there's absolutely no confirmation, but it seems like these two have been spending waaay too much time together lately. Please don't think I'm legitimately irritated by this wonderful pairing, because I'm not...but my tolerance as a Dramione shipper is beginning to wear thin. Here's why:
Draco Malfoy Tom posted a picture of himself with Hermione Granger Emma. And that alone wouldn't be enough to send me and Dramione shippers everywhere into a tailspin, but it is the very nature of what's happening in the pic that's setting us TF off. In the photo, Tom and Emma look hella cozy together in South Africa and are pictured wearing literal PAJAMAS (not matching sets, but s t i l l) as Tom teaches Emma how to play the acoustic guitar. I almost wish I were making this sh*t up, because it feels way too good to be true. I always low-key—okay, HIGH-KEY—thought Draco and Hermione would be an interesting and unconventional match in the Harry Potter saga, and to see this happening IRL is even better.
I just have so many questions. What are they doing in South Africa together? How comfortable are they that they can be around each other in pajamas so freely? Did Tom do that cheesy guitar move where he tries to teach her a chord and moves in for a kiss? Who took the picture?
Of course, I wasn't the only person on the web who had a lot of feelings about this. Some of the shippiest comments, below:
- "This is a gift for everybody who loves Dramione and believes in Feltson."
- "I can die now in peace, thank you."
- "Blessing the rains down in Africa!"
- "In my mind, you two are together, always."
- "My Dramione fanfic that I wrote when I was 12 entered the chat."
Now, this is nowhere close to being a relationship confirmation at all (*sobs*), but hey, I will happily take what I can get. #Dramione4Ever!!
