Now on to Draco. I think he can be pretty cool sometimes. I must admit that i got pretty excited when i got to the part of HBP, [SPOILER - highlight to read]: where he was 'about to kill' Dumbledore. Would've Been badass.

Yeah but he didn't. So not badass.
Don't get me wrong, I love Draco, he's a nasty piece of work but there are moments when we realise he's just a young man, under pressure and want to hug him Like when he's crying in the toilets But he's not a badass evil little bugger, because that would take away any potential he may have to become even more lovable. His father has done an amazing job turning him into a hateful shite, but I think there's more to Draco than meets the eye. He blatantly hated DD but he still had awe and respect.
I do think that this last book showed Draco was capable of emotion. He was just a jerk in the other books but it showed that there was more to him when [SPOILER - highlight to read]: he didn't kill Dumbledore even though it would put his family in danger it showed that he at least he had some honor. Its still to bad [SPOILER - highlight to read]: that Dumbledore died anyway but I think that Draco became a more complex character in HBP and He showed himself capable of fear (i.e the Myrtle scene) and maybe, just maybe, fear and honor will drive him away from the Dark Side

Yes, in case you noticed I have been gone, and yes, I'm back indefinately. If you want to hear of my crazy adventures during my absence look in my profile!
i respected draco for what he was befor, in earlier books - heartless, meen and sneering highborn spoild brat - exactly what nobleman's sons are - he sometimes got a bit low, but he compensated it with grate stile and classi behavior - a Character with C...
But in book 6 - in the beginning - the scene in the train - i'w never felt such disgust for a deed as low, dishonorable, lame and unworthy of highborn men as this - how can a man, who was raised to be a nobleman, abuse his vantage and superior position to cause as much pure physical pain as possible, when your enemy is unarmed and defenceless - you humiliate him for revenge - yes! - but to torture him physicaly and enjoy it??
sick! low!!! mentaly sick!!
after this i felt no pity for Malfoy, no compassion, no nothing - only disgust as for an inferior "being"...
Please if you can, make me change my mind, i like'd to justify him, but i just dont know how. Thanks.

In the book I actually liked/hated his cocky behavior...!
In the movie-- he was AWESOME!
You said it!!!
I sort of respect him more now knowing what he faces...
I really feel bad for him too... Voldemort intended for him to die as revenge on Lucius... but he didn't so I think Draco would be facing punishment from Voldemort... especially since he(Draco) didn't fulfill his mission...(it was finished by someone else)...
or probably---> Draco would help Harry defeat the Dark Lord or something like that
People ***** and moan about the snarky blonde, but honestly, that's most of the attraction. I hate fanfics that try to change him. He's not nice. He's not polite. He isn't cuddly or feely, and he never will be. He's a snarky momma's boy, and I love him for it.
OK THIS IS THE WAY THAT I SEE IT. I DONT LIKE THE CHARECTER. I HATE THE THINGS THAT HE DOES AND HOW HE ALLWAYS FEELS LIKE HE IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE AND THAT JUST BUGS ME? BUT I LIKE TOM THE REAL PERSON. HE IS ACTUALLY ALOT DIFFERENT THAN HIS CHARECTER. THATS WHY PEOPLE SHOULD LIKE HIM. FOR HIS PERSONALITY AND HIS WORK.
I liked Draco surviving, personally, though I hoped for more interaction between him and Snape.
