Quick question: In canon -- book canon -- does Snape actually favour Draco? I know he favours the Slytherins generally, but is there some actual connection between Snape and Draco? I can't for the life of me manage to filter that out from all the fanon in my brain.
If he *does* favour him, why? Does he like Draco? If so, why? Draco's sycophantic ways?
Hmm. Draco's not the most likeable kid, really.
