Lily Evans/Horace Slughorn: Something Old, Something New

“Something Old, Something New” is a HP fanfic starring Lily Evans (just about to become Lily Potter) and Professor Horace Slughorn. It’s been written by purplefluffycat and deals with infidelity.

I confess I don’t really like this topic. In other fandoms I rarely ever read fanfics about adultery if I’m warned in advance. However, I’ve realised I’m a bit more tolerant when it comes to infidelity in Harry Potter fanfiction, as long as the unfaithful one is a female character. Still, this doesn’t apply to all HP female characters and depends highly on how well-written (or not) a fanfic is.

This one happens to be a pretty good short story. I’ve never thought about Lily and Slughorn as a potential pairing. I used to think of his feelings towards his student as purely paternal. But this fanfic is truly convincing! It makes you wonder how Lily and Slughorn’s relationship might have been, and you shouldn’t be surprised if you end up cheering for them. 🙂
