Recommendations from Dramione Remix

Dramione Remix ([ profile] dramione_remix) recently wrapped up, with roughly forty entries. The idea behind the remix was that "participants will choose from a list of famous couples throughout history, mythology, literature, folklore, legend, etc. Then they will remix the original couples' story, choosing whatever elements of the original story that they find inspiring to create a brand new Dramione fic or piece of art!"

I decided to do a list of my personal favorites, as there were a staggering number of entries, particularly long ones. There's a lot of the following on this list:

1) Gender role-reversal of the couple
2) Reinterpretation of the story or interpretation of concept/theme, rather than a straight re-telling
