ThatawayI'm not liking the title of the new trope Harry And Draco. Yes, yes, I know that Harry Potter is all the rage, but we're supposed to be on a general trend towards proofing titles against Fan Myopia and Popcultural Osmosis, not adding new Character Named Tropes.
This trope needs more than a new title. It needs a complete rework. At first glance, it seems like the entire description of the trope is "the rivalry between harry and Draco" It's so narrow that only this example fit perfectly. On the contrary, if I put it as generic as possible, as i understand it, it's a trop about "two characters are ennemies". That's squarely into People Sit on Chairs territory, or at least very close to.
ThatawayThere are a bunch of negative comments on the discussion page and it doesn't appear to have gone through YKTTW. Yeah, I'm thinking cut more and more.
I see the Awesomeness.Cut.
I've read the Harry Potter series, and couldn't even muster a reasonable guess as to what this trope could be based on the name. Having read the description, I'm still confused. Dark-haired moody hero and light-haired whiny villain who don't like each other? That's a trope?
ZzzzzzzzzzIt's really just a checklist of other tropes and there's no one facet that makes it it's own trope.

Elite SoldierDelete. This should've been zapped.
I am a proud member of the Western Federation's Anti-Japan Media Task Force. My work is very important.
There is only one thing I see in this mess that could salvaged as a new trope, but I'm pretty sure we already ahve it : Poor Hero, Rich Villain. It's very, v ery common, but it's probably covered, like I said. Even if it isn't, that, s a new trope, not a fix of this one. this one need to die, die, die, die.
BTW, I'm a chick.
Pronounced YAK-you-lussTake off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
