Which, of course, I GOT MY TICKETS THE OTHER DAY SO I AM TOTALLY PSYCHED YAY! \O/ BE PREPARED FOR A SQUEEFUL INCOHERENT POST WHEN I COME BACK FROM THE THEATER.

Lolol I don't ship it but I reaaaally wish they would have become friends. Sniffle. This is the only clip I've seen, aside from a couple of trailers and it will be so.

I'm kinda embarrassed to go watch this with mom because I'll be sobbing. D:

I wished they would have become friends, too. I think it's a missed opportunity to show since it would have shown something completely different, but I like that at the end of the series Draco and Harry have a more civil relationship in adulthood than their school years. That's something. But I wished there could have been something more, I felt like Harry would have been good for Draco, if only to have someone else to confide in.

I think in the film we're going to be seeing some redemption of Draco, more than we saw in the seventh book, which I'm happy about. I was disappointed we didn't see more of his development and on the big screen I think it'll do his character justice. :)

lol, I'm going with my mom and sister to the midnight premiere and I'm not afraid of shedding my tears in front of everyone. My mom knows my level of fannishness. Hell, I think she'll be crying right beside me. :(

I REMEMBER WHEN BLAISE APPEARED IN HBP I WAS LIKE DAY-UMMMM. *__* HE'S ONE SEXY MOTHERFUCKER.

BUT YEAH, THIS SCENE. I CAN'T TAKE IT. PLUS WITH THE BROOM-FLYING SCENE I JUST....YEAH. I THINK MY FANGIRLINESS WILL GO THROUGH THE ROOF WHEN I SEE THIS ON THE BIG SCREEN.

I WISH I COULD TAKE YOU WITH ME, TBH. IT'D BE JUST A BLAST. I'M WEARING MY TIME-TURNER NECKLACE AND POSSIBLY BRINGING MY HARRY POTTER WAND TO THE THEATER. THOUGH I WISH I HAD A DARK MARK TEMPORARY TATTOO BECAUSE HOLY SHIT AWESOMENESS RIGHT THERE

I can see it and I don't ship at all. Seriously, in this fandom everyone has chemistry with everyone. It is like Supernatural.

Personally, I've never liked Draco. I always saw his role as the same as Dudley: as a cowardly bully who antagonized Harry but was never a real enemy or threat. And both Dudley and Draco got semi redemptions in DH, or at least were shown to be human. I guess having been bullied, and bullied by one guy in particular who was like Draco in a lot of ways, I can't find him appealing. His father, on the other hand..

I don't think we were meant to find Draco appealing until the last two books, where we see his character go through a drastic change from being that antagonistic schoolyard bully to something more complex. We see a different side of him, that people can change. I've always found that aspect about Draco fascinating, I liked that despite the way he grew up, what was ingrained and instilled into him by his family, even bullies like Draco can have a change of heart, can shift their direction in life to how they first started out. To not carry the burdens and sins from their parents, if you will.

I think the movies have shown this as well, HBP we see Draco desperately clinging to the thing that will save his family, but understanding that he was in way over his head. I think that's what fascinates me about his character -- it's the same with Lucius, and Narcissa. I love all the Malfoys because of their shift in the end and how Draco grows up from his bullying ways and starts understanding what he wants to do, which is he right thing.

I don't know. The impression I got of Draco in books 6 and 7 was that he firmly believed in the cause but was too weak to carry out the assignments he was given. Basically, he was a high school bully who thought he was a big villain but couldn't cut it. I don't think he ever really had a change of heart except maybe by the end of the 7th one a little bit. Draco just came off as a weak little boy trying to be a man, the sort of bully who bullies because of his own self esteem issues. His parents I find fascinating because they have both strength and weakness, light and dark. But I never got that with Draco.

Just how I personally read him.
Renée: Draco Malfoy. Conflicted.rogueslayer452 on July 7th, 2011 01:06 am (UTC)
Well, I guess we can agree to disagree with how we personally view the character then. :)

I mean honestly, I could go on forever on my views on Draco, Lucius and Narcissa and why I see them, as a whole, a fascinating family and why Draco seems to be the one to grow and develop after his years at Hogwarts based on his experience. In fact, in this last film, I think they are going for that redemption storyline that we didn't see enough of in the final book, which I'm more than happy to see since I was kind of disappointed we didn't get more of the aftermath for the Malfoys post-war.

That is fine. :) There are so many great Harry Potter characters, and they all have so many layers and ways to interpret them. That is what makes this fandom so fun, I think. There are so many ways that things could have legitimately gone. And you know, there are fics out there that redeem Draco that I think do it believably and that I like.

I really do hope they give Draco a bit more depth in the movie. I kind of like movie!Draco more than book!Draco, and actually sympathized with him a little in movie 6. And I wonder how far they are going to go with Lucius and Narcissa. The book hints at them regretting their decisions, but it never quite goes there. I hope it does. I'm so ridiculously in love with movie!Lucius that I want him to have a bit of redemption. I'll settle for scenes with lots of characters though because I ship him with nearly everyone he isn't related to.

I THINK I WATCHED MORE THAN I SHOULD HAVE, BUT I DON'T MIND. I LOVE HOW IT APPEARS THAT THEY'RE TALKING TO EACH OTHER BUT ARE HAVING A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CONVERSATION THAN WHAT BLAISE AND GOYLE ARE HEARING, YOU KNOW? ALSO THE WAY DRACO BLINKS AND SHIFTS HIS EYES TOWARDS THE END THERE, AFDLAJS;FLDJASFK

LOVE THIS CLIP, I HONESTLY CAN'T WAIT FOR THE REST OF THIS SCENE. :D IT'S GONNA BE GOOD. :D

By the way, I got your v-gift, I'm always happy to keep you sane. Thanks.
