An article at the Huffington Post explored the appeal of some canon relationships. "According to DeFife, this strong desire we feel for an onscreen couple to get together is rooted in a psychological phenomenon known as the Zeigarnik Effect. 'It was named after a psychologist who observed waiters in restaurants who would not write down their orders for a table...She found that they had memory for the order only as long as it wasn't filled, and then once it was filled that memory for the order went away.' The phenomenon now refers to the notion that an unsolved problem remains cognitively alive. Unresolved romantic chemistry in TV shows and books, DeFife says, falls neatly into this category.

Our friends at the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) have launched a new project, one that goes to the core of our mission here at the OTW and the Archive of Our Own. Fanworks Are Fair Use is a community of fan creators, readers, artists, and enthusiasts who are committed to the protection and preservation of fair use law. The HPA's goal is in line with ours here at the OTW; since 2007 we have worked to eliminate negative stigmas about fanfiction, fan art, and other fan creations and support those works and their creators in the eyes of mainstream media.
We are pleased to come onboard and work with the HPA on this important issue.
