Both Skins and the Harry Potter series follow compelling groups of UK teens. But where Skins was beloved for its shockingly real depiction of teen partying, sex, drugs and mental health issues, Harry Potter has none of that.
Like, you've got several hundred teenagers locked in a boarding school together with a world of mischievous spells at their disposal. Somebody was smangin' at Hogwarts.
So what if Harry Potter was a real about high school life as Skins?
1. As one of the most popular boys in school, Harry would have been a much more prolific dater.
2. And the Harry, Ron and Hermione ~love triangle~ would have involved actual intercourse, cheating and emotional sabotage.
3. Which would have lead to so much more gossip.
4. Luna would basically be Cassie.
...but hopefully Luna's sneakily grounded demeanor would help her avoid Cassie's struggles :(
