Who would famous literary characters be best friends with, if they could select other characters from across works of fiction by other authors?
Flavorwire imagined 8 such pairings, starting with this one of Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye and Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series:
At one point, Caulfield was the paradigmatic teenager, but now his star has fallen as kids munch on antidepressants and try to be absorbed by, rather than rebel against, the growing ranks of other-directed kids in the lonely crowd. Which is why he would probably get along with another unloved character, Draco Malfoy. If Holden and Draco were friends, however, Draco probably would have already failed out of Hogwarts and ended up somewhere in the bowels of London, smoking cigarette after cigarette and drinking out of of a pocket flask as they discussed their stupid classmates and even more ignorant parents. Phonies! The lot of ‘em.
