I wanted to dedicate this post to just one bookish nasty. One character who got me so mad at them I
could have reached into that book and slap them into the next century but also got me worried about them (yet also thinking ha ha serves you right).
I've never been interested in Draco Malfoy as a fictional hottie. A lot of you probably know by now that bad boys aren't my thing. But I'm interested in Draco Malfoy as a writer and a reader. He was by far an intriguing and complex character.
To start out with he's your typical playground bully. A petty, snarky nasty who loved feeling superior and his villainy was limited to insults and mocking. Pretty much the bully we all went to school with at some point. But as the books continued, the characters grew up, and the tone became much darker Draco Malfoy was introduced to people who were a lot more dangerous than him. All of a sudden he was being bullied by people who didn't threaten to shove his head down a toilet and flush it... they would kill him if he didn't do what he was told.
That's where his character took an interesting turn. We already knew he was a bit of a coward. But now he was justifiably terrified because these Death Eaters and Voldermort himself were murderers. Draco was a total dick but he wasn't an evil person and all of a sudden he was being forced to do evil things. There we started to see a new layer. A young boy who did have a little bit of redemption in him. After all he was hesitant to identify Harry when the trio was captured in Deathly Hallows.
Who is/are your favourite villain/s?
