(Harry/Draco continued...)

Things done in fanfic that annoys me: Everything involved with the Draco In Leather Pants trope. It's one thing to explore a character's emotions and understanding them on a deeper level, that's the entire point of writing fanfiction. It's another to completely disregard canon and make it so you're going to change who they are to fit your ideal of that character. Draco is interesting on his own without being reduced to that, tyvm. And pretty much disregarding characterization in general, but that's pretty much my rule for most fanfiction in any fandom.

Things I look for in fanfic: When the writing convincingly stays in-character. The presence of there being an internal struggle, mostly involving feelings and emotions about the other. Particularly when it's about how there's a conflict of instilled beliefs and such, like with the Malfoys, and the struggle Draco has to go through in order to confront his own feelings and betraying what he was taught or expected to do. Also, I love reading fics where it's an AU or post-battle where Draco is trying to find his place back in the world again and connects with Harry on a much deeper level because he kind of knows him now better than anyone. I just like seeing stories that focus on that and how Harry is used to be the catalyst for everyone else to see Draco's worth.

Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I'm not sure for Draco, but for Harry I wouldn't have minded him to end up with Hermione or Luna.

My happily ever after for them: Just being together, finding common ground with each other and their friends, and living happily together, give or take their banter but in a more teasing way now instead of constantly being at each other's throats. It's totally cheesy and generic, but I don't care. Happy ending is happy and I'll take it.

What I think will happen with them in the future: Well, if we're going by book canon, discarding the epilogue, I like the notion that Harry and Draco are working together in some form or another. And that Harry is the one who helped Draco rebuild his life and rebuild/reshape the Malfoy name in general. Which because of this new found bond between them they formed a relationship that they knew was already there, it just had to take them everything they went through to get to that point.

Re: Cont'd.
Disregarding characterization is one of the main reasons I can't read fanfiction, so I'm with you on that!

The Harry/Luna ship is a really interesting one that I like to think about sometimes.
