Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter

Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter started out, and spent a heavy amount of time, as enemies within the Harry Potter realm. Their relationship, however, began to grow as they did and it allowed fans of both Draco and Harry to see them in a different light. That doesn't mean that the awful things Draco did were erased, we remember them, but Draco's character had to overcome something huge, and in that, he realized the hate he'd been preaching wasn't right.

Most Drarry (Draco & Harry) stories start off as enemies to friends or have a heavy dose of angst, but they end up being some of the most wonderfully written.

We love stories where Draco and Harry help one another overcome something big, be it an obstacle, inner turmoil, judgment, etc. Those 'hurt/comfort' fics can really take off where Draco and Harry are concerned.

For us, it's less about canon and more about their characteristics and who they are at the heart of themselves, which allows us to see what they could bring out in one another if their circumstances had been different. What better way to explore 'different circumstances' than in fanfiction.

Is Draco/Harry a favorite ship of yours? Do you hate it completely or are you somewhere in the middle? Let us know!

I feel like I'm pretty in the middle with this one. They both have dynamic personality traits (Draco probably more than Harry), so their relationship would make sense on a mental level in the same way that Dramione does.

I agree, both Hermione and Harry would help Draco see his worth but also keep him on his tippy toes (Drarry would probably do that with banter and teasing and Dramione with squabbles over knowledge or something like that.)

To be honest......Drarry makes me puke.....sorry for all those Drarry shippers...but it's true.

I guess Dramione makes more sense to me since they both had that chemistry since that punch in Prisoner of Azkaban. Drarry never had that chemistry. The attempted handshake kinda introduces the possible ship but then the string just got cut.

JK Rowling actually planned Hermione and Draco ending up together but she couldn't fit it in.

So in my opinion...Drarry just is on the same level as Snamione or Harry/Voldemort

No J.K Rowling wanted from the beginning Ronmione.

This is from an article where JK says that Harry and Hermione should have been together where she admits that her original plan was to have Ron and Hermione together. I am sometimes under the unfortunate impression that JK just says things to appease the masses sometimes. Therefore, it’s hard to actually determine her true/original reasoning. But hey, that’s why we have fanfiction, so each person can write what pleases them or re-imagine the story their own specific way.

Tbh I recently started reading Drarry to keep up with the reads in my Discord channel and I found out I actually like the ship a lot when well-written

Yes, when they're very well written they're super enjoyable; like I prefer the ones that are just smut.
