Given Emma Watson’s leading role in Beauty and the Beast, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to mash it up with Harry Potter. And now PistolShrimps has transfigured that already magical world with Harry Potter’s own “Beast.”

Hermione and Voldemort? We could never imagine—especially after what Voldemort put her and her friends through. But give Belle a wand, a unicorn, and some Apparition, and you’ve got yourself the start of the unlikeliest of bonds.

Aside from Voldemort appearing to kill Maurice multiple times, it works a lot better than you’d expect.
