Draco Malfoy/Astoria Greengrass
Posted 10 June 2011 - 05:45 AM
I absolutely love when, in stories, Astoria is written smarter and more cunning than Draco. She teases him, but they love each other so much. I don't know, I just think that after all of the stuff going on in the HP series, he needed someone who we knew nothing about (that way we can't judge him one way or another), who's younger than him (his year was pretty bad), and, in my opinion, more devious (but in a good, mischevious sort of way) than him. So she can keep him and their son (and whatever other kids people decide to write) in line, and still be awesome. I mean, you have to be awesome for marrying the trainwreck that was Draco Malfoy at the end of the series. I also like when Pansy and Blaise and Theo are all close with Draco, Pansy and Theo together. I don't know, it's just more realistic to me. And I'm a huge Blaise/Luna shipper. But that's neither here nor there, so I'm leaving now.
nitenel and Ramona are second and first place winners in my challenge respectively! yay!

I think they would balance each other out a little because Draco is quite impulsive however Astoria appears to be more of a softer character, however because we didn't know anything at all about Astoria in the books then the pairing can come across as a little strange. Draco was always with Pansy so I think people could have a softer spot for that pairing. However I think they could have a really good marriage if they were prepared to work at it.

It's also a very logical and reasonable reason for them to meet, since Daphne and Draco knew each other. The fact that we know almost nothing about Astoria really makes it hard to say anything about them. Even so, I'm glad Draco didn't end up with Pansy like many expected. They were both too cold and sly for that to work. I imagine Astoria as much softer and a lot like Narcissa. She could be the person that helped Draco after the war. I really believe in this ship, but I think they would have to work for it. With Draco being arrogant, cold and mean at times, I think he would need someone like Astoria to help him change

I was actually a tad bit surprised when these two got together. Maybe even a little bit disappointed? Just because I have always thought that Draco would have ended up with Pansy instead and thought that placing him with Astoria was a tad bit random.
I completely agree, I was shocked when Draco didn't end up with Pansy because J.K kind of made it sound like they loved each other in the books.

Pansy catered to Draco's every whim. He didn't respect her. Draco needed someone who demanded respect from him and made him feel like he was respectable. Pansy was a tie to a past he'd rather not remember. He needed a fresh start, and JKR gave him one with Astoria. I really rather like this pairing.
I think that's a good point. I always got the impression that it was a one way deal with Pansy, he enjoyed having someone cater to him but I never felt he was as attracted to her as she was to him. I don't like Draco, but I do think he changes (somewhat) after the war. Pansy just accentuated how horrible he was. I think marrying someone else shows some progression and maturity.

i hate that its so under appreciated.
honestly, there's no way that draco would have fell in love with someone like hermione.
theres just no way.
no matter how many great fanfics are written,
it just doesn't seem likely that draco would fall in love with someone like hermione
astoria gave draco that clean break he needed from everything that happened in the war,
yet at the same time, she wasn't too far of a deviant away from his old... "ideals".
she's still a pureblood and raised as a pureblood, but she wasn't at all involved in the war
and i can bet that astoria was one of those slytherins who secretly didn't agree with voldemort
astoria gave draco that clean break that he desperately needed and im glad jo decided to put these two together (:
