Veela are magical creatures from the Harry Potter series with enhanced sexual allure. [1] A Veelafic is a story where one of the characters is revealed to have Veela ancestry and powers.

Trope Conventions

Veela ancestry is frequently used as an "alien biology made them do it"[2] plot device, where two characters, usually Harry and Draco, are forced to become a couple due to Veela mating instincts. It is also fairly common to make Mary Sues Veela or part-Veela.

The vast majority of Veelafics are written in all seriousness, but there are also parodies of the genre, such as Mirabella's A Consummation Devoutly to be Wished.

Veela are sometimes used in Harry Potter or Magic AUs for fic in other fandoms.
