Fire and Ice Background  
I am extremely late to the Draco x Ginny fanfic world. Can someone share where the whole Fire and Ice association for this pair came from? was it a fanfic, fanart? I love it and want to read more but don't know where to start. Thanks for the help!

Hi,

Welcome! I was late to the fandom party too but I'm kinda enjoying the mellow after-party.

I think the fire and ice association is a fandom interpretation of their personalities and the small bit of them we get from Harry's POV in the books. Ginny has a fiery personality and Draco is viewed as icy and aloof. I think his cutting, sarcastic sense of humour briefly showed in the novels hints as that. It is my opinion that fandom characterizations are an exaggerated view of the small glimpse of whatever we see in the books, particularly of less-developed supporting characters.

I could be wrong but that's how I think it started based on my extensive reading of the stories for this pairing. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can visit dracoandginny(dot)com to read the stories there.

I agree with the above comment, and I always saw it in a superficial way as well-Draco's hair is white-blonde, Ginny's is red, so I always thought of that as ice and fire as well. :)

Thank you for the explanation! It makes perfect sense. I actually was excited to kind of discover them and that there are still some new fics being written. But I have a lot to catch up on.

There's absolutely nothing else to add to this, I just wanted to say how wonderful it is to see we still get new people joining our ship and that there are still some oof us still active!! Yay!
