"You don't know what I'm capable of, you don't know what I've done!"  
Reading this made me cry, because it rings so true on why I love Draco Malfoy.

I've been wanting to do my own post on this very subject, since sometimes it's hard to properly form an articulated explanation whenever people ask why I love not just Draco, but the entire Malfoy family as a whole. I think this person really says everything I ever wanted to say in such a perfect and beautiful way, that there's honestly no way in topping it. It's everything I've felt about his character and why I adore him, and then some. I mean, Draco could have easily been written off as a one-dimensional character, but he wasn't. I like that there were added layers and depths to his character development, and this is precisely why I love him so much. And that love has grown overtime because I've come to fully understand exactly what he went through and it hurts my heart looking at it in an analysis format such as this.

Also, on a related note, I've just been on a Malfoy mood lately. Ever since DHP2 I have been craving for anything/everything involving the Malfoys in general.

I really wish JKR would expand their story, because I'm more intrigued with them than any other character.
Current Mood: okayokay

it doesn't bother me that people see draco as this horrible villain or dislike him because they think he's bad, because that's how it is, he's different things to different people. but the thing is, what they don't realise is that it could just as well be you or me. could be any one of us. draco's not evil. he's been taught certain things about certain people, and if your parents tell you something from a very young age, don't you think that sticks? if you loved your parents, as draco so clearly does, wouldn't you do anything you could to save them from certain death?

if harry's parents lived, joined the dark side, told him that muggles were scum and mudbloods thieves? he'd be just the same. perhaps he'd start thinking differently, growing up, but draco wasn't allowed the time. he was too busy trying to unfuck his and his family's lives.

i think that's why the malfoys are so ridiculously interesting, because while harry's not quite black and white, he hasn't got that same dichotomy that draco does. the malfoys are, occasionally, the bad guys of the story, but they've got so much potential to be good, and most of the time, they remain the villains. but putting their family first, risking their lives to keep their family members safe? there's so much more to them than meets the eye, and they will never not be intriguing to me. ♥

... um. sorry for the rant? :D
