Put down your Quills and listen to this: Hermione and Draco got together.

Reports say that Emma Watson and Tom Felton 'casually dated' between 2003-4, while they were shooting Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Well, their relationship was certainly...tempestuous.

Hermione / Draco pairings - 'Dramione' - are extremely popular in the surprising and (dark?) magical world of Harry Potter fanfiction, leading to some...interesting fan art.

Maybe it's Draco's otherworldly blond tresses...or maybe it's his 'bad boy' image, or that he's not afraid to cry...still, he seems to be a frontrunner in alternative universe fandom.

Still, let's take a look at some other hotties from the Harry Potter books who Hermione could totally have got with...

Cedric Diggory

Before Twilight was even a thing, Robert Pattinson used his hunky jawline to bring us some Cedric Diggory realness. Cedric was brave, handsome, accomplished, loyal...and a hit with the ladies. Surely Hermione would rather have had a piece of sexy Cedric than grumpy old Viktor Krum?

Harry Potter

Controversial, but J.K. Rowling herself famously broke fan hearts when she said that Hermione should have been with Harry, not Ron. I don't know what to think about this - not least because Rowling doesn't provide an alternative storyline for Ginny in her argument - but the idea certainly has merit.

Anthony Goldstein

The blonde Ravenclaw may never have appeared in a Harry Potter movie, but he features in the game, Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix. With his fair locks, fans speculated that a cutie like Alex Pettyfer could play him on screen - making him an attractive prospect for any Hogwarts boycrush!

Neville Longbottom

Neville's a brave fighter and a long-time friend and ally to Harry, Hermione and Ron. Sure, he was kind of an ugly duckling earlier in the movies but NOW? Dayum...
