Appeal & Trends in Fanworks
- Possibility of Piers discovering Harry's magic
- Conflict/angst over being attracted to your childhood tormentor (or tormentee)
- Enemyslash dynamics
- Potential for redemption of Piers, who did his most concrete wrongdoing when he was eleven years old or younger
- Piers is closeted and/or has internalized homophobia, but makes a pass at Harry because Harry is [also] a "freak"
As of September 2016, a handful of Harry/Piers fanfiction is on FanFiction.Net, but no stories are actually marked with the pairing for filtering. There is only one story on Archive of Our Own tagged Piers Polkiss/Harry Potter, although there are at least a couple of other stories containing the pairing that do not have the tag.
Harry/Piers fanworks can be difficult to search for. The traditional method of indicating pairings using characters' initials is not generally used for Harry/Piers works, as "HP/PP" could represent works pairing Harry with Pansy Parkinson, Peter Pettigrew, or Parvati or Padma Patil in addition to Piers. Thus in cases where the pairing is indicated in a fanwork header, it is usually written out "Harry/Piers" or "Harry/Piers Polkiss".
