I strongly feel like Blaise Zabini was Draco Malfoy’s only true friend in school. Crabbe and Goyle were like “hired help”, Pansy just lusted for him, and the others aren’t mentioned to interact with him much. But I do feel like he and Blaise had a real friendship. I love reading and writing fanfics where the two of them are as close as Harry and Ron are.
Hey! Could you do one where Everest drinks a little too much and Blaise has to take care of him? :D
