It is often said of the Malfoy family that you will never find one at the scene of the crime, though their fingerprints might be all over the guilty wand.
I will die swearing Lucius Malfoy owns at least one pink shirt.
Today, we mark the birthday of someone very near and dear to my heart; someone who, as strange as it sounds, has helped me through so many personal and emotional issues over the years…simply by allowing me to place myself into his world, his family, and through the friends and stories I’ve made and created through him.
Draco Malfoy is a one of a kind fictional character for me; I think that, in our lives, we all have that one character who feels like home. We esteem them, we raise them up, we analyze and tease them…we read about them and feel a certain sense of warm nostalgia. For me, that is—and I suspect always will be—Draco Malfoy. Though beyond flawed, prejudiced, and an all-around jack ass, this pale-haired Slytherin has sparked so much creativity across dozens of domains. From fan art to fanfiction to playlists and thoroughly-detailed analyses of his character, fans of the Harry Potter series have been able to use his character as a platform for so much creative expression.
You either love or hate Draco…there is rarely an in-between with a character as bold and brash as he is. He’s a paint splatter across an otherwise clean canvas; he’s an ink smudge on a crisp piece of parchment. He’s so bold and defined and dynamic; he’s traditional and rude and entitled.
He is my favorite fictional character, and today…I wish him a happy thirty-fourth birthday.
THE MAGIC BEGINS: A character you’d like to see more of on your dashboard → Narcissa Malfoy”If you attack my son again, I shall ensure that it is the last thing you ever do.”
I feel like Lucius Malfoy’s the type of guy to gracefully dab at his mouth with a cloth napkin after eating out Narcissa
The Magic Begins: 9/30 - A character you feel the need to defend: The Malfoy Family
I promised I’d bring Fan Showcase Friday back, and here it is! There will be a few changes, however; instead of choosing a new artist every single Friday—as I once did—I’ll be spotlighting an artist every month. Due to the fact that there are several different platforms for artistic expression and creation, I want to clarify that this can be just about anything! Digital art, traditional art, graphic making, music, writing, so on and so forth.
All we ask are the following:
- The artist you suggest (whether it’s yourself or someone else) post a lot of Malfoy-centric pieces. At Malfoy Manored, we like to spotlight artists who feature at least one of the Malfoys in multiple pieces of art.
- If you’re suggesting someone else for Fan Showcase Friday and personally know them, just make sure they know about it! Some people may feel uncomfortable having their art showcased.
The link above will take you to a page that outlines what criteria you need to meet/fill out!
While I’m sorry to hear it made you cry, i have to say I know how you feel! Every time I remember the Malfoys or the Battle of Hogwarts in general, I tear up a bit.
Thank you very much, I’m glad to hear you enjoy it!
