Hallo, my name is Cal and I like anime about children's card games and also Harry Potter. <3 I also like to write a lot, so idk what I'm doing on tumblr...
[[I honestly love Draco. Yes I know he’s a legitimate brat but I saw past that character of him. He was neglected by his parents and was never given any real human affection. I thought Draco was just a confused, lonely kid who needed a real friend.]]
Why do so many Draco fans feel the need to woobify him? He’s an interesting enough character without all this crap. There is no evidence at all that Draco was neglected or abused. In fact, there’s quite a bit of evidence to the contrary.
His father is dismissive of him in CoS, yes, but it is heavily implied that that is because he has heard it all before. Draco spent the entire summer going on about Harry bloody Potter and Lucius is just a little bit tired of it. If you’ve ever spent a summer with children you understand why.
His mother sends him weekly packages of sweets. He believes he can convince his father to smuggle him in a broom in his first year. He appears to be highly secure in his family’s place in the world and what that means for him. His mother lies to Voldemort for him. You honestly think a woman who would lie to Voldemort for the mere chance of getting her kid out of a battle would fail to show him basic love and affection? If anything Draco is spoilt. Spoilt and naive enough to be unaware of what’s waiting for him when he joins Voldemort. That’s enough angst already, there’s no reason to go around making it more melodramatic.
Still waiting for the Nintendo 5DS that I’ll be able to ride and play virtual children’s card games on at dangerous speeds.
