Hermione/Pansy is a Harry Potter femslash pairing involving Hermione Granger and Pansy Parkinson.

Madam Hooch's Broom Closet stated in early 2003 that the pairing was "decreasing in popularity",[1] but removed this sentence after the release of Order of the Phoenix. Their later description of the ship stated:

"Ah, Hermione/Pansy. Bring on the angst. Often written to mirror the ever-popular Harry/Draco ship. A high proportion of the more dysfunctional and/or violent f/f romances feature this pairing."[2]

Hermione/Pansy tends to rank third or fourth in popularity among all Harry Potter femslash ships.[3][4] It is the most popular femslash pairing for Pansy, although Ginny/Pansy is also popular.[5][6]

Terminology

  • H.M.S. Pug and Chipmunk is a ship name for the pairing popularized by FictionAlley Park's SCUSA forum. The name comes from the fact that Pansy is repeatedly described as "pug-faced" in the books and Pansy once compared Hermione's appearance to a chipmunk.[7]
  • HG/PP usually stands for Hermione/Pansy, but it is ambiguous: it can also mean Hermione paired with Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Peter Pettigrew, Piers Polkiss, or even Poppy Pomfrey. Hr/P nearly always refers to Hermione/Pansy.
  • Pansmione is the preferred portmanteau for the pairing, popular on Tumblr. Permione is sometimes used as an alternative, but appears to be used more frequently for Hermione/Percy.[8]
