Before "shipping" was used as a common-knowledge phrase, fans of the Harry Potter franchise were dreaming up their favorite couples in the series and writing about it in their own fan fiction. 

A decade of books and films dedicated to teens in the wizarding world catering to an audience of preteens definitely opened itself up to some fan fiction and theories centered around dream pairings. 

Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy, talked about one surprising couple and the legitimacy of fans' claims that they are meant to be together. In an interview with AOL at Universal Studios, actors from the series reunited to share thoughts almost exactly eight years after the release of the last movie. 

Now Harry Potter fans can live out their own wizard fantasies — but, definitely not those kinds of fantasies — in the real world with a soon-to-be-released app based around the series. 

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Oliver and James Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) reunited at Universal Studios for the opening of a new ride at the park. 

Universal Studios recently opened up a new ride at Harry Potter World in Orlando based on Hagrid's magical motorcycle. The former costars took one of the first spins on the ride and took some time to answer interview questions in a game of "Fact or Fan Fiction" for AOL's video series In The Know. In the game, one fan fiction that was neither proven or disproven was the status of a Harry and Draco series-long crush. 

"Fact or Fan Fic: Even while he was with Ginny, Harry was always in love with Draco," Grint read the question aloud. "I think it was clearly a fact," Felton laughed. 

So, there it is. A decade of wondering, and fans finally have their answer... sort of. 

"Harry is constantly crushing on Draco; he just couldn't hide it," Felton said sarcastically. From the beginning, Draco and Harry had bad blood. From that first iconic exchange, in which Harry snidely remarks to the Malfoy boy, "I think I can tell the wrong sort for myself, thanks," there has certainly been some... tension between the two. Their duel in Chamber of Secrets was a conglomeration of feelings, definitely negative, and perhaps some hidden romantic ones as well. 

In the interview, Grint suggested that Ron may have had eyes for Draco, too. And apparently, backstage, the Weasley actor had some love interests too. 

"I think he made quite an impression on Ron as well," Grint said of Draco and Harry's potential romance. "Yes. Well, exactly. It could have gone either way, really... You think you'd dump Hermione to go out with [me]?" Felton replied with a nervous laugh. "Yeah, maybe," Grint responded with a chuckle. A Weasley-Malfoy romance would have definitely been the ultimate payback to Draco's father, Lucius, whose distaste for the Weasley family was clear throughout the entire series. 

In another moment of the interview, Felton revealed a secret from on the set. "Fact or Fan Fic: One of our costars had their first kiss with a Harry Potter castmate. That I can confirm is a fact," Felton said. "And I think we both know who," he said with a knowing look toward his onscreen nemesis. Ron's on-screen romances left him with two kisses throughout the series. The first was with Lavender Brown (Jessie Cave), and finally with his longtime love, Hermione (Emma Watson). But it's unclear if either of these two were his first "real" kiss on set. 

Upon reading the fourth novel, The Goblet of Fire, one fan noticed the attention that Draco placed on Harry. 

One fan took to Twitter to question the relationship between Draco and Harry in the fourth book of the series. They wrote in the tweet, "so i’ve been reading all the harry potter books again since it’s been a while and i’m currently on the goblet of fire and it’s made me realise just how obsessed draco is with harry lmao, literally everything he does is to get harry’s attention."

True, most of his intentions throughout the book were to foil Harry's attempts at success or winning any of the tournaments, but maybe that was out of unrequited love as opposed to genuine dislike. Fans have long shipped the two nemesis and written a variety of fan fiction about their imagined status as a couple.  

These clips compiled by one fan account on YouTube shows scenes in which Draco has some major sassy energy. 

I'd say there is definitely some tension, whether it be sexual or not is up to the fans, between Harry and Draco in the series. At the end of the novel, once the final war is won, Harry and Draco put their differences aside and live separate lives not as friends, but no longer as enemies. In the epilogue after the final chapter of The Deathly Hallows, the two see each other again as adults for the first time, and there is a mutual respect. In these early moments, the two have some witty comebacks and fiery remarks to say to each other. 

Felton also shard that he stumbled upon some "alarming" fan fiction pairing his character with Hermione Granger. 

"I get the Draco/Hermione thing. I get that," costar Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood, revealed in the AOL interview. After the infamous punch in Prisoner of Azkaban, fans felt there was some chemistry between the two young actors. "Dra-mione... I think that's a fan fic. In fact, I've seen some fan fics along that line. What is it with Draco and matching him up with various Gryffindors?" Felton said about the ship between the multiple characters. "I've seen some pictures, some alarming ones," Felton said about the fan fiction between he and Watson's Hermione. 

Watson revealed in 2011 that Felton was her first crush, sending fans into a frenzy shipping the two actors and subsequently their respective characters. 

These two costars have remained very close in the years post–Harry Potter; in fact, they have even stirred up some dating rumors, such as when Watson posted this very friendly post to Instagram. She shut down any further comments about their status, though, by calling him "dear friend" in the caption. 

In 2011, Watson told Seventeen that he was her first crush. "For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush... He totally knows. We talked about it — we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that's cool." When the magazine asked Felton about whether he knew about the feelings, he kept his answer short and aloof: "No." 

Apparently some fans had the hots for Voldemort, too, but none of the actors could really get behind that one. 

"Fact or Fiction: Voldemort's a villain, but there's something sexy about him," Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) reads. "Depends what you're into, I guess," he said. Felton disagreed and said, "I can't see it. I mean, it's the nose thing that really puts me off. It wouldn't be my taste," Grint countered. 

Voldemort's looks are certainly interesting, and he's got the ultimate bad-boy status. While he might not be the healthiest choice, to each their own. Clearly, fan fiction knows no limits and a Draco/Harry pairing is the least of anyone's worries.
