Today we are taking a train to a school where all of us want to be right now, Hogwarts. We will be discussing a character that draws a mixed reaction for the Harry Potter fandom, needs some time on a psychologist’s couch, and is the ultimate daddy’s boy. Draco Malfoy, yes he did join the Dark Lord in the Half-Blood Prince and try to kill Dumbledore. But, depending on your reading, he did redeem himself during the Battle of Hogwarts.
Draco is a kind father to Scorpius in The Cursed Child (depending on whether or not you believe that is canon) and helps the golden trio to save Albus and Scorpius. For those who like fanfiction, he is an extremely supportive father/grandfather to Rose and Scorpius’ children. Plus, he is totally doing the rounds on book TikTok right now.
To the music. This playlist is composed of songs that are vapid, contradictory, slightly depressing, and shed light on someone who wrestles with his feelings.
The songs I want to highlight today are “Hey Jealousy” by the Gin Blossoms and “Super Rich Kids” by Frank Ocean. “Hey Jealousy” speaks to Draco being jealous of Harry from the moment he first set his eyes on him. “Super Rich Kids” is the song that describes Draco who believes that wealth and his pureblood status got him everything.
