Fandom Meme  
And now for that fandom meme that has been circulating about:
Comment with a fandom (or more than one) and I'll answer

The character I least understand
Interactions I enjoyed the most
The character who scares me the most
The character who is mostly like me
Hottest looks character
One thing I dislike about my fave character
One thing I like about my hated character
A quote or scene that haunts me
A death that left me indifferent
A character I wish died but didn’t
My ship that never sailed

A *HUGE* reason I enjoy fanfic!Draco so much is that we actually get to see some character depth. He had so much potential and I feel like JK just didn't really tap into it.

Exactly. While I generally only read Harry/Draco fics, there is a lot of great exploration of his character particularly post-war that I greatly appreciate and enjoy. There is so much to examine with him because he went through so much in HBP and DH, and I really like seeing the different interpretations of how he integrated back into wizarding society and dealt with the trauma of everything that happened. Ever since the sixth book Draco was shown to be quite a dynamic character and there was a lot of rich potential and opportunity to further expand him, give him more growth and development, but alas it was never done. Thank goodness for fandom, though.

(Sadly, I think JKR has a bias against Draco as a character, not to mention Slytherins in general, as evidenced from her statements post-series.)

JKR absolutely has a bias against Slytherins. Well, okay, I think she has a bias against certain character tropes and most of them just happen to be Slytherins. Like, she seemed to really like Regulus, but he was also an atypical Slytherin.
