Author’s Notes: Written for dracoharry100's challenge, wrath.

I’m Draco.

There’s a surprising amount to learn from my first name; people forget that, reacting only to my last. Potter is different. I like that.

Draco is Latin: ‘dragon’.

The only characteristic all dragons share is that they’re untameable. And that you shouldn’t anger them.

I saw dragons on holiday once. They were asleep and it’s amazing how harmless they looked. Then they noticed us in their territory, and roared.

Funny. Voldemort is obsessed with Hogwarts. Yet clearly, when he chose to allow my father to rot in jail, he forgot to consider its motto.

Draco dormiens numquam titillandus.

Thanks, Jae! Much appreciated. Writing first-person fanfic is scary. *wibbles*

*___* Ooh. Dangerous Draco. <333

Dangerous Draco is awesome! *snuggles you* How're you then?

He is! 8D Since he's always portrayed as a coward in canon. D': *snuggles back*

Pretty good. x) Have I told you I hate French? As in, the language, not the people. xDD How about you? :D

See, I think cowards can still be dangerous, especially when they're like Draco - he manages to do things no one else could in canon, and I think he'd keep doing that to protect his family. And he certainly has brave, stoic moments. It tears at me when Moody bounces him off stone and all he does is wince.

Ah, French. I'm so glad I only have to do subjects I like now! And I'm pretty good, although organising for uni sucks.

That is definitely true. Doesn't really show until the 6th book or so though. D: The movie really doesn't do the character any justice. Other than getting lots of fangirls because Tom is fairly pretty. x) But yeah. DD: He has such an image, and he keeps falling. It takes a lot to get back up, and it's always Slytherin against the world, and the world supporting people (Gryffindors) who openly detest and rally against them.

XD Darn you and your good courses! ..Organizing is my weak point. Lol. << *looks around room*

I quite like this, although I can't think of a particular word I would use to describe its flavor...

Thank you! I can't think of a word either... *is confused by own writing*

There's nothing wrong with being struck speechless. ^_^
