Using an oath to prove that he wasn't responsible for his selection as a Champion is a great idea. Why didn't Harry do that in the canon? Did he know about Unbreakable Oaths back then, or did they come later?
What did Crouch have to do with Hagrid deciding to clue Harry in to the dragons in the canon? I thought Hagrid did it entirely off his own bat? I guess I've forgotten something?
Poor Draco!! Still, I won't argue with how you wrote his (not) dealing with his dragon - it's consistent with his being an all-talk bully. And the 'entertainment' was funny.
Regarding 'enslaving' Lily, yes, I reckon that's right. Well, exaggerated, but if it was really 'love' that Snape had felt for Lily then he would have wanted to save rescue all three Potters - the people she loved - not just the object of his desire solely.
I believe Crouch took credit for prompting 'that oaf Hagrid', but of course he might have been lying!
