So, I’ve been playing with a new fanfic site: Wattpad. I’m having a lot of fun over there, reading and posting and figuring things out. (
Come stalk me Follow me if you want.) This week, I’m bringing you a pairing I’ve never recced before, because, hey, I started reading this and I never want to stop.
Draconian by hepburnettes (on Wattpad)
Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger
Warnings: Copious angst, PTSD, mental health triggers, torture, some sexual situations
Draco Malfoy has got too much blood on his hands. And Hermione Granger might be his only route to redemption.
Confession: I’ve never read Dramione before.
As a gal who grew up reading HP fanfic, it may be surprising that it’s taken me so long to get around to one of the fandom’s most popular pairings, but in truth, I think I was just waiting for the right fic.
“Draconian” lured me in because it’s tagged “dystopian,” and let’s be real: I’m a sucker for dystopia. It kept me engaged because it’s a story I haven’t read before: a world where Potter lost and the Dark Lord prevailed, a Death Eater Draco who finds a tortured Hermione and hides and protects her. It’s got all the angst that I love, with a twist of action and intrigue, but the real icing on the cake is the tenderness that Draco shows to Hermione. I don’t even care that it’s W.I.P.
Read if you’re a fan of Dramione or HP fic.
