This is an interesting concept. Maybe if you fleshed it out a bit more you'd get more reviews. Why does he love her in all of those ways?
Author's Response: Flesh it out...hm. How does that go again? He loves her in all of those ways because he loves her entirely. He loves every facet of her person, all her traits of minimal humanity. He loves her thoroughly, which entails loving absolutely everything about her, which means loving her when she's disgusting and not beautiful. To Draco, Ginny is like the simple pleasures that we take for granted, like a song or a poem. As for the broader things, like the different sins and elements and 'words', it's about loving her so desperately he can't live without her, just the essentials almost to human nature and life, because that is what she is to him, the 'essential'. And as much as he loves her, he loves the idea of not loving her too, of not having to deal with the stress of being in love with her, because we all know how difficult it is for a Malfoy to love a Weasley. . But it's really a love/hate thing, he loves her, he doesn't love her, he doesn't want to, he can't decide. As for loving her 'undercover', this is a reference to having to keep their love a secret. Long enough response? ; )
