Fred Weasley and George Weasley are characters from the Harry Potter series. They are identical twins and are two of Ron Weasley's five older brothers. The two have a very close relationship in both canon & fanon, to the extent that they frequently finish each other's sentences, appear to have identical interests, set up in business together and are rarely seen apart.

Fan Response

Fan opinions of Fred and George vary widely.

Shipping

The twins' close sibling relationship is sometimes extended to Fred/George twincest, the most popular pairing for Fred and George. This is often expanded into threesome pairings, such as Fred/George/Harry or Fred/George/Hermione. Such threesomes are also sometimes written Fred/Hermione/George (for example) to indicate that there is a sexual or romantic relationship between Fred and Hermione as well as George and Hermione, but no strict incest.

A variety of relationships between Fred, George, and Angelina Johnson are also common. For example, some suggest that Fred/Angelina was a relationship before Fred's death in Deathly Hallows,[2] and that the canonical George/Angelina pairing arose from their shared grief. Others propose a pre-existing Fred/George/Angelina relationship before Fred's death.

Other popular post-Deathly Hallows pairings for George include George/Lee, George/Luna, and George/Hermione.

  2. In a post-Deathly Hallows documentary, J. K. Rowling describes Angelina as "Fred's ex", so the relationship is usually considered canon. However, it is unclear how long the two dated; all that is mentioned in the books is that Fred and Angelina went to the Yule Ball together in their sixth year.
