but like despite the play’s many flaws ii have so much love for the cursed child version of draco though
he’s alone and hurt and grieving and repressed. at one point he admits that he envied harry because harry had actual friends, whereas he had cronies and connectionms who would have probably been in azkaban or not wanted to talk to him after the battle of hogwarts and everything that went down there. he grew up trying not to become like lucius and be a better person and arguably it succeeded but it cost him so much. he lost his reputation, his family, everything he might have had. no matter what, he would always be draco malfoy the ex-death eater who might have raised voldemort’s kid.
all he wanted was for scorpius to be happy and do well. and i think that’s admirable enough
