You will rescue Peeta at the earliest opportunity. Or you will find another Mockingjay.
#he made the character more than it was tbh #i love book draco but you don’t get to SEE his struggle so much as infer it based on harry’s rather limited POV and in the movies you get tom felton being amazing and deep and showing the downward spiral of someone who made himself incredibly vulnerable at his first meeting harry because he’s sure that all the hype his parents have been doing towards his family and his winning personality are going to garner him all the cool friends but then the years go on and everyone but slytherin hates him and then everyone but his small group of friends hates him and then he’s not even at school at all and he thinks his parents resent him for not succeeding in killing dumbledore and not helping their family get out under voldemort’s control even though those are both impossible requests for someone who is still underage you can see him try and make a decision of what’s right and what’s easy and once he starts thinking for himself you can see him leaning towards the former because none of this is what he signed up for because from the moment his school career began he’s been failing to live up to the expectations he’s set for himself so he rejects everyone around him as lesser and latches onto the one thing that his parents taught him that comes in handy and condescends to anyone who’ll listen and by the end you can see it eat away at him to the point where he’s all but begging harry to save him from dying because he’s once again failed supremely but this time he’s hit the actual rock bottom and his throat is raw from his constant need to resist swallowing his pride and all he wants is a fresh gasp of air and when his parents get him back he flees without looking back because as much as they’ve been worn out by the war draco’s been worn out by so much more in addition to that #and this all happens int he background with no more than a page of dialogue in each movie whereas the main characters have massive arcs and long lingering moments where you see them break down and build themselves back up and tom felton does it all with such cohesion and quiet brilliance that you look back and deem him a main character when he’s really been lost among the massive cast only getting a few words in edgewise and sometimes i wonder if he maybe relates to draco on a level that makes everything that much more rich and nuanced#harry potter #word vomit #spoilers #malfoys appreciation blog ‘∞

One of my favorite things about Hermione is how ruthlessly practical she is. She’s scary because not only is she book smart; she can take in disparate pieces of information and triage the ever loving shit out of that. Piece X and piece F go together so resolution M. And her mind is quick enough that she makes those choices in seconds. Well-informed choices that also combine instinct. For as much as she’s a bookworm who overthinks things, it’s because she has too much time on her hands to overthink things. Basically, Hermione is built for war. She’s built for conflict and strategy.
Does she always make the “right” or the “good” choices? No. No, she doesn’t. She pulls some truly horrific shit, but out of all of the kids, she’s got the ability to see the breadth that the others don’t. That they shouldn’t. And for all that she does have the ability to see the true size of the fuckery that is going on, she’s also still a child. So she fucks up and learns. And for as horrific as what she did to her parents is - because oh my god - this war is not one they could even comprehend let alone participate in. And I do think it’s a discredit to Hermione to think that she doesn’t get how awful the thing she did is. She knows and she did it anyway because above all else, she wanted them alive to a.) hate her or b.) never knew she existed.
Hermione is a General by the end of this. And the most amazing and horrific thing about that is that she’ll have to deal with the consequences of the choices she made. She was smart enough to know that, going in. So the fact that she walked into this, eyes open, with a truly strong grasp of what actually was going to happen, rather than rose glasses, makes her all the more amazing to me.
(ETA: Even though I don’t condone physical violence, one of my favorite moments is Hermione hitting Harry over the head with the parchment. Because he’s all “I should totally hit it with that fangirl cuz!” and she’s all a.) stop thinking you’re that special, I’ve met you and b.) you don’t treat women like that, even though they think they want you to. Be the better person, Potter. She achieves this with a whack to the head and a glare. LOVE YOU HERMIONE.)
