Be My Bad Boy, Be My Man

Let’s talk about bad boys. Specifically, bad boys in Harry Potter.

We’ve all come across Draco being referred to as ‘the bad boy’ – usually by gushy journalists in badfic, but whatever. There is an idea that Draco Malfoy is a Bad Boy. There’s even more an idea that Lucius Malfoy’s Bad, Real Bad. Where does this come from?

Interesting question, but it might make more sense to think about what makes a bad boy bad.
