It is not uncommon that an author will adore and respect their most malicious characters and defend their names to the death, but don’t expect that to be the case with J.K Rowling and her Harry Potter school-bully character, Draco Malfoy.
Rowling has spoken in-depth about her many characters and what they represent from her real-life struggles. With Draco Malfoy, however, it seems she wanted to create someone we could all loathe together!
In a rare visit to her Twitter account, J.K Rowling responded to a question sent from a fan of the magical series in regards to our least favourite bleach-blonde Slytherin. The fan asked what the series would be like if it was entirely from Draco’s perspective. The answer Rowling gave was simply wonderful.

I’m still struggling to stop laughing from trying to picture Rowling finding that post on Tumblr and screenshotting it to her phone for personal use and amusement. The post itself is equally hilarious.
We would also like to clarify that the user who posted this, “i_think_it_is_a_butthole” is NOT J.K Rowling (unfortunately). Although, considering the fact that she did make a joke relating to Harry’s “wand” in the past, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was actually the billionaire author’s Tumblr account.
What other badass moments have you enjoyed from our favourite childhood author?
