The frightening thing about The Mortal Instruments series is that its plot is nowhere near as interesting as the plot of her original fanfiction trilogy, and it has nothing to do with the fact that the characters in The Draco Trilogy were familiar faces.

Its witty, sarcastic, thrilling in some way, funny and absolutely brilliant! I think this is an advantage, because even if you are not a great fan of YA romantic comedy you can enjoy this story. And there were no Harry Potter archives at the time that I could find. After all, this triangle was not part of the Harry Potter canon, and then you xraco have these archetypes:.

The price of having this fine romantic comedy is placing Draco, Harry and Hermione in the spotlight and leaving little room for other characters.

I’ve written other fanficwork, and real life going on, and then I had started my original fiction about two years ago, so I think that my production of the Draco Trilogy has really slowed down, and that’s probably why it’s cassanddra me so long, but I always wanted to finish it.

So that’s trilogj about the writer. But Harry being in Malfoy manor was probably the fassandra that made the most sense, Harry was very confused about where he was, but went along with being Draco.

But again this is also just my opinion:: A more realistic Draco, I think, but probably not as attractive or interesting as the one in this fanfic. Yeah, it’s a big deal in that sense, but given that it was so long ago I don’t think I should still be as bothered by it as I am, lol. My favorite part probably because it actually feels so jk rowling-y “They dropped each other’s hands quickly.
