I feel like Draco is the kind of person who would beat around the bush ridiculously when they’re nervous. Harry probably had to ask him out because Draco literally would just ramble until he was so red he’d just start insulting Harry in embarrassment and then flee. Poor guy.
Also a note on the genderfluid portrayal, I myself am genderfluid and that’s just how it feels to me. Everyone’s experience is difference and I’m not claiming this is the exact way it is.
