Tulip and Tonks both started Hogwarts in 1984, and Tonks was sorted into Hufflepuff while Tulip was sorted into Ravenclaw. They did not have any major interactions in their first two years, as Tulip was still friends with bully Merula Snyde. Who Tonks' friends were during that time period, or if she even had any, is unknown.
Tonks and Tulip both became friends with Jacob's sibling in their third year. Initially, they were not shown to interact much. Eventually, the two became close, presumably due to their common interest in pranks and breaking the rules. They often encouraged Jacob's sibling to prank activities as well, and commonly went to Zonko's Joke Shop alongside them.
In their fourth year, it was announced that a Celestial Ball would be held for students of their year. The two became members of the Decorating committee, lead by Penny Haywood. After Professor Flitwick told them not to use magic, Tulip and Tonks insisted on still using magic, but agreed not use it if Jacob's sibling told them not to. Tonks went to the ball without a date, but would hang out with Tulip unless she was Jacob's sibling's date.
Around this time, Tulip and Tonks decided to hold a prank contest to determine which of the two was the biggest prankster at Hogwarts, and chose Jacob's sibling to be the judge. However, when Rita Skeeter returned to Hogwarts to write an article that would ruin Jacob's sibling's reputation, Tonks and Tulip decided to set their contest aside to help Jacob's sibling prank Skeeter in an attempt to scare her away. When no other pranks worked, the three teamed up with Argus Filch, who knew the best pranks due to being the victim of so many in the past.
In their fifth year, Tonks and Tulip shared Defence Against the Dark Arts and History of Magic classes. In the latter class, students often got bored, and occasionally Jacob's sibling played Exploding Snap with Gryffindor boys. After the game, Tonks and Tulip showed up and challenged Jacob's sibling to play by the Bavarian rules. During these classes, Tulip and Tonks also tasted Fizzing Whizzbees with Jacob's sibling and Charlie Weasley. Tonks and Tulip also met up with Jacob's sibling at the Hog's Head Inn to plan an ultimate prank in order to impress Peeves.
The ship has some support due to the two both being pranksters and their in-game friendship. It is one of the most popular femslash pairings in Hogwarts Mystery (excluding pairings with female Jacob's sibling), as well as the most popular ship for Tulip. The ship name of the two was declared in this Tumblr post but it is rarely used. A brief background moment in the "Valentine's Day" achievement quest where Tulip is holding her hand behind her back (a gesture often used to indicate one character has feelings for another in the game) while talking to Tonks, which has lead to some fans speculating that Tulip could be confessing her feelings to Tonks.
- On International Friendship Day, the official Hogwarts Mystery Twitter account tweeted a picture of the two.
