    The Almost Legend of Draco Malfoy

    The Almost Legend of Draco Malfoy by Zahra

    Summary: Not everything is about Harry Potter. Oneshot, 1,273 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I admit that Draco Malfoy is not my most favorite character. He is, in fact, one of the ones I have the least interest in and which the rabid fan enthusiasm in the Harry Potter fandom at large eludes me. I find him too simple to take apart, I suppose, and strongly dislike the fanon version of Draco that most authors write. As a result, I tend to stay away from Draco fics in general, as all evidence supports that Fanon Draco has broadly taken over the fan fiction world. Having said that, every once in a while I get pestered into reading something that turns out to be good, and closer to canon than the average Draco-fic. This is a reflective character piece on Draco Malfoy: who he was, who he is, and who he will be.

    Why You Might Not Care: For me, it still misses the mark, but it misses it buy a far smaller margin. The author seems completely unable to resist adding a line that hints at slash, but to each their own and it’s not the focus of the piece by any margin. Neither canon nor fanon Draco lovers will be completely satisfied with this story.

      I didn’t like this fic. It’s neither canon, nor fanon Draco and completely missing the point.
