“Still, I owe you,” she says. She settles back into her seat. “How’d you know, though?”

Viktor asks Hermione to the Yule Ball but she’d really rather not go with him. So she makes up a little white lie and Fred swoops into rescue her once he realizes this. Later, she swoops in to save him when George makes the wrong assumption.
It’s just a few weeks of pretending to date between two friends, just to help each other out. Nothing will go wrong. They’re sure of it.

"That's still not old, and that's still not how it works."
(or: the rewrite of the books where the twins befriend hermione early on. some things change, some things stay the same, some things... do a little bit of both.)
