In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, all of the students Professor McGonagall is teaching to dance are Gryffindors. Which means, Hufflepuffs would be taught by Professor Sprout, Flitwick would be teaching the Ravenclaws, and guess who the Slytherins get to waltz with?

Yep, there’s fanfiction about this: http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Minerva%20McGonagall*s*Poppy%20Pomfrey/works
I definitely think it could (and should!) be a thing.
I think it’s also a very interesting idea since it is so much easier for witches and wizards to change their appearances at will than it is for muggles- there’s polyjuice of course, but also lots of different human transfigurations, charms, etc… I think the experience of a trans* witch or wizard would be in some ways pretty unique.
Of course, there’s also the problem with the very gender-binary paradigm of “witch or wizard,” which I think we’ve mentioned on the show before… what would a more gender neutral name or pronoun be? Any ideas, dear listeners? Let us know what you guys think about this!

There really has been a lot written about the two of them as a pair! I’m not sure if this is the essay you’re referring to, but there was a great editorial on Mugglenet a couple of months ago about Remus/Sirius and the lack of queer relationships in Harry Potter in general that I really enjoyed reading!

If you were referring to a different essay, we’d love to read it- send it our way!
