While the books are in Rowling's words, the words are from Harry's Point of View. Yes, the almighty POV. This means that since this belongs to Harry, it may hinder my ultimate point; but we'll put that aside for now.
Harry notices people whether they are thick or thin, pug-faced or pretty. They are there and Harry has four eyes with which to see them. Harry notices that Cedric Diggory is "an extremely handsome boy". He notices that Cho Chang is "extremely pretty". He notices that Millicent Bulstrode has a "large and square head" and a "heavy jaw". But Draco Malfoy was described as most of us know him: with a pale complexion, a pointy face, grey eyes, and white-blond hair. He was not described as ugly, nor was he described as beautiful. He was described and that is all.
I am not trying to prove that Draco Malfoy is either one of those things, but I am trying to prove that he is probably nothing special--a face in the crowd.
ivyblossom's Morality Quiz had me thinking last night. But I seem to be the only person (as far as I saw) who thought that Bob was not a bad guy. You're a good guy, Bob. You're not alone in the world.
