Friday Fics Fix - Draco the Writer. Harry the Reader.

'“You keep writing books about Harry!”

Every rational thought left Draco as dread filled his stomach. There was no way that Weasley had figured it out.'

There are some things that you just don't know you need in your life... Draco Malfoy writing novels about how much he yearns for Harry Potter, but nobody getting that that's what he's writing about.

...And then Ron being the only one to figure it out and no-one believing him.

I love it. So much.

And, actually, it's quite well done.

A little clumsy in places, sure, but I've read published books that are more veritably sloppy with the verbiage than this joyful nugget of prose.*

*I'm tired, and I sound like a 19th Century novel with no filter when I'm tired. I can't be bothered to edit it out, so you'll have to put up with it. I also can't guarantee it won't happen again, but I'll try.

What's impressive also is the levels of fanboy Harry reaches for in terms of following Draco's writing, without even realising that the books are about him.

He has a newsletter subscription (delivered by owl, naturally,) from Draco's publisher! Lol!

'The book looked too new to be a copy of one his other works. Besides, Ron couldn’t remember ever seeing this one before. Not that he read Malfoy's books. Nope, not even a little bit.'

It does get a little saccharine sweet at one point.

But by then, you're either on board for this or not, y'know?

(And yes, I was most definitely on board.)

Aww, he's so sad in this gif! 😅

Oh, and this is Drarry, by the way, in case that wasn't clear from the start.

(A romantic and/or sexual relationship between Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. They're pretty much the royal couple of fanfiction.)

I just can't get over the thought of Draco Malfoy as a writer.

It works, doesn't it?!

(Or have I completely lost it on this one?!)

Just as a heads up, there's some reference to violence, bleeding, and low self-worth, in this fic.

So be careful my nerdlets, m'k? M'k.

This week's fic is:

I Can't Take It! by XxTheDarkLordxX

  1. I could totally see Draco as a writer. I think he would be so angsty and emotional, a poet would even suit him too.

    1. I know, right? (And yeah, the fic writer made his srtuff uber-angsty!!! Lol.)

  2. This sounds amazing and like it could totally be a real thing to happen, Draco writing books about Harry lol.

  3. Hmm... sounds interesting! :)
