Hermione and James have never met in canon, due to James' death.
Despite the age difference and James' canon death, Hermione/James ship originated sometime in or around 2001, and like most other HP pairings most of the Hermione/James fandom continued even after the series was finished, although at a much slower rate than the more popular or common/uncommon pairings. Unlike Hermione/Remus or Hermione/Sirius, Hermione/James never exploded in popularity and only has a small following.
Common Tropes & Fanon
- Time Travel - Either by herself or with another, Hermione gets stuck in the past during the Marauders Era where she finds herself falling in love with James, and/or James in love with her. Sometimes Hermione goes back intentionally to save James and Lily Evans Potter from death to change the future and save Harry
- Infidelity - any fics that take place after James had already married Lily. Sometimes in stories where James had lived, meanwhile Lily died or they did not react well to the resurrection and often split up. In others, it mostly means Hermione dealing with knowledge of James and Lily marrying and having Harry in her "past" and his "future" and her feelings towards James.
- AUs/Futurefics - quite popular, this was due to fact that James would live or be resurrected often by Hermione, either by going into the afterlife or performing a ritual/sacrifice.
