Fanfic Wednesday: “The Undeserved Hardships of Draco Malfoy”


I can’t believe I found this again…shippers, I present to you the very first slash fanfic I ever read.

The Undeserved Hardships of Draco Malfoy by Bullied (FFN)

Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter
Word Count: 88,130
Warnings: Much, much sass. 

Author’s Summary

It was all an accident, helping that annoying Potter! But now the wizard extraordinaire, Draco Malfoy, is in a bind. He’ll need all of his intelligence, his wits, his looks and his sneers just to make it through Hogwarts! Slash DM!HP

My Thoughts

I’m sorry, I need to just squee for ten minutes before I continue writing this. 

Okay, now that’s done, let’s talk about this fic. This fic was the first slash I ever read. I didn’t know what slash was until I caught my very flamboyant coworker reading Drarry fics during his shift at the library (tsk tsk).

You should all send him a thank you note, because without him, I would never have tumbled down this rabbit hole in the first place, and this blog probably wouldn’t exist. So, thank you [name redacted] for introducing me to slash.

Anyway, what I loved about this fic the first time I read it…many, many moons ago…was the complete and utter sass that Draco has in his voice. I can picture Tom Felton in silk pajamas being so sassy, and Draco’s complete and utter denial about his sexuality had me giggling, had me crying, and had me shipping Drarry before I even knew what that meant.

So take a trip down my memory lane and read the fic that I’ve spent the last eight years trying to find again.
