Introduction post

When I started this blog, shortly after discovering the joy of reading Harry/Draco fanfiction, it was with the clear intent of getting back into writing. However getting a new job a few weeks later completely messed up my plans. Now this is mainly a HP slash rec journal. Feel free to browse through my tags.

My fics:


And I’ll Weep with Each of Your Silent Cries (Harry/Draco, 16,400 words)
Years after the war, Draco Malfoy finds Harry Potter slumped down in front of his St. Mungo’s office. He is offered an unprecedented glimpse into his former rival’s mind. Epilogue compliant.

Things Left Unspoken (Harry/Draco, 3400 words)
I was looking for an excuse to leave the place when I spotted them. Six small glass vials were proudly displayed behind the counter. The liquid inside was cobalt blue. I had seen one of these in Draco Malfoy’s hand eighteen months ago.

Memory’s touch (Harry/Draco, 3700 words)
He’s there. Draco’s there. His hair looks golden under the warm candlelight and his aristocratic features calls to me. There is a baby in his arms, just as I knew there would be. My heartbeat speeds up, my magic hums and for the first time in months I feel truly alive. I’ve found them. I’ve found my family.

Rec: He Who Must Not Be Normal

Title : He Who Must Not Be Normal
Author : lettered
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 41,5K

Potter has fame and fortune and posh clothes and all he wants is a simple life. Draco has a flat and a cat and a steady job and all he wants is a complicated life. Which makes you think this story has something exciting like body-swapping, but it doesn’t. Instead it has Indian takeaway and a blue jumper and people wanting a whole lot of what they can’t have, discovering themselves as they discover each other.

My thoughts: I fell deeply in love with this story. The setting, the portrayal, the tone, the words : everything was perfect. I wanted to pull Harry and Draco in my arms and tell them everything would be alright.

War makes for strange bedfellows. However that doesn't fully explain how Harry ended up sharing his bath with Draco Malfoy... nor why Malfoy was a rubber duck at the time.

---

My thoughts:I really enjoyed reading this fic. It's excessively brilliant and utterly funny. With lines such as "Hiding in the saucepan had proved to be an invalid long term solution", you can't deny it is.

Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 88,7K

Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for eighth year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.

---

My thoughts: Reading this, I remembered exactly why I fell in love with this fandom. I remembered why I spent sleeppless nights reading stories after stories right after I first stumbled upon the pairing. It is by far one of the best fics I've read in a while. It's a wonderfully written eight year story with a slow building romance. That's really all I need to say.
