** Actually, Draco delivers quite a few of these to the original series. For example, when Harry asks if being in love always feels like [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince having a huge, scary monster in your chest]], Draco responds "No, I think you have indigestion. I'd see a medi-wizard if I were you."

* KissingCousins: The romance between [[spoiler: Sirius and Narcissa]], who were later shown to be cousins in the books but were not related in the Draco Trilogy. To be fair, though, virtually all the main characters end up being related.
** Technically there was a hint; at one point, Arthur Weasley mentions that the lengths blood purists go to to keep Muggles out of the bloodline means that all remaining pureblood families are related to one another, and the Weasleys, for example, are distant cousins to the Malfoys.
** Also, in Order of the Phoenix, it hints on pure-blood families marrying their cousins, which is part of the reason the Gaunt family was the way it ws. And, it's better than Sirius/Bella at any rate.

* CaptainOblivious: Harry. ''Dear God'', Harry. He fails to notice [[spoiler: Ron is having an affair, Hermione and he are having relationship problems, and that Draco (who he shares telepathy with) is ''dying''.]] However, Draco and Snape are pretty much the only ones who seem to be paying enough attention to realise all these things.

* UnbuiltTrope: As noted, this story named and brought prominence to the DracoInLeatherPants trope. It also spent a good deal of time showing how Draco would go from bad guy to good guy and the challenges he would face along the way.


There was also a good deal of controversy in fandom when the author was blacklisted from Website/FanFictionDotNet for [[{{Plagiarism}} plagiarizing]] lengthy passages from a Creator/PamelaDean series without attribution (and, apparently, lying about having permission to use the passages in her fanfiction, although she did sort of get permission after she was caught). This is often confused with the series using a large amount of quotes and scenes from TV series (including ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'') and several published works, which were (eventually) credited at the end of each chapter. Avocado, the person who first discovered and reported the Pamela Dean plagiarism, wrote [[http://web.archive.org/web/20131022155458/http://www.journalfen.net/community/bad_penny/8985.html#intro here]] a recount of the plagiarism debacle.

* {{Plagiarism}}: Many dialogues and even full scenes were copied word-by-word from several published works, without credit.

* FandomSpecificPlot: As noted above, the Yule Ball plot. In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', the Yule Ball only happens during the Triwizard Tournament. It takes place on Christmas day, and Harry is amazed at how many people stay over break to attend it. The ball is important enough to be attended by Ministry officials and have the most popular wizarding bands provide the music. In the Draco Trilogy, the Yule Ball is an annual event, takes place weeks before Christmas Break, and is treated as little more than a high school prom. Seventh years actually regard the Yule Ball as beneath them, [[PartySchedulingGambit trumped]] by something called the Seventh Year Pub Crawl.

* FunctionalMagic: Obviously present in ([[TransplantedCharacterFic most]]) ''Harry Potter'' fanfics, but notable here due to the considerable liberties the fanwork took with how magic works in the Potterverse, such as Lucious Malfoy getting his power from actual demons. Most of this is because the trilogy was written between ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner Of Azkaban]]'' and ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire,]]'' before the rules of magic were clearly established.

* DancesAndBalls: Seem to happen a lot, including the [[FandomSpecificPlot usual and inexplicable restaging of the Yule Ball]], although this series may be the TropeMaker there (well, aside fom ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', obviously). The weirdest instance of this: a formal ball is thrown for Harry's seventeenth birthday party in ''Draco Sinister''. Because Harry would have enjoyed that ''[[SarcasmMode way]]'' more than the low-key seventeenth birthday party he later had with the Weasleys in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''. And whose idea was this? Sirius's! Because it's so in character for Sirius Black to throw a Creator/JaneAusten ball to usher his godson into wizarding adulthood.
