In the Afterglow

Pairing: Draco Malfoy x Luna Lovegood

Part 1 or 3.

This is fairly angst filled, so please be wary while reading.

Regret was a parasite. Draco had spent more than half of his life encompassed by it. He’d never been a Gryffindor’s version of brave; self-sacrificing and loyal to a cause. No, a Slytherin’s definition of bravery was different.

Draco’s bravery had been simply in surviving. His father’s decisions had landed him in a number of predicaments. He’d been born and bred to be a Death Eater, to believe in a pure-blooded society. By the time he’d realized everywhere his parents had gone wrong, he was already in too deep. He couldn’t go back. But he’d refused to kill.

Hi, could you please give a patronus? I'm 5'3", natural ginger with hazel eyes, and pottermore sorted me into Gryffindor. I am passionate about fighting for others' rights and wellbeing, and tend to get in arguments when someone tries to sway my loyalty from my loved ones. I love to read and write. My mom has stated several times that I can be emotional and am empathetic.

I think your patronus would be a Deer! Deers are known for their loyalty and trustworthy. They like to keep harmony and respect everyone. They are incredibility sensitive, like you said, you can be emotional. They care for everyone and everything! (:

I don’t really get this question, so I am just going to pretend it says:

What’s your favourite spell?

Expecto Patronum

Mainly Because:

And because it’s a spell of hope. And that’s one of the most important things in life.
