I think what it comes down to Draco and with rereading the series I’m always super sad he never pulled a Zuko. So frustrating. And I get that’s the point of his character, but gah. YOU NEEDED AN IROH, SON.
You know what I think is great?
Matthew Lewis wanted to try out for Harry Potter, but was asked to try out for Neville Longbottom, and received that role instead.
Harry or Neville could have been the Chosen One, but Voldemort chose Harry.
Matthew could have been either, but was chosen as Neville, while Dan was chosen as Harry.
Maybe I’m reaching a little bit, but I just love that there’s a bit of a parallel.
