“The Idiot Boy Who Lived To Be Gorgeous”
the person who recced this series is totally my favorite person this week <3
Can you recommend some good fic with Lucius? Where he is at least somewhat redeemed. (I’ve read Secrets and I LOVED it) Long or short doesn’t matter . Mostly interested in Drarry stories but I will read other pairings if the story is really good.
You know how there’s a lot of fanfiction online that is just awful? and there is an equal amount that is entertaining and fun and makes you look for more of the same? -and then, occasionally there is fic that is so epic, so amazing, such a good story that you get sucked into it and cannot read anything else for days because you want to stay in THAT world in your head?
I just read one of those ♥

Fan fiction, fan fiction, fiction, fan, fan fiction
That kind of fanfiction does exist - I’ve read a few (Wraethu fandom comes to mind -wow) it’s just very, very rare. I get really frustrated sometimes when I read fic that had the potential to be so much more- where the author had the seeds of a really good story if ,as you said they “ had the balls and courage and time and ambition and enthusiasm” to write it.
I have to remind myself that most of this stuff is written by 14-18 year olds in between their highschool classes, and no matter how awesome and even talented some of them are - they don’t yet have the maturity level for that kind of depth. So I guess I just enjoy the fluff and rejoice when I find that occasional gem.
And honestly, just because something is “published” doesn’t guarantee it’s any better! There is a LOT of crap published daily and that frustrates me even more :P
Draco Malfoy has learned via painful experience that the least complicated way to go about things is to not allow himself to care — about anyone. After all, he’d tried that once without success. But now he finds himself thrust into a situation where maintaining the armour around his heart simply isn’t an option.
This is how it’s done right. <3 A little angst, a little mystery, Draco’s pov (my favorite ;P) and not one damn “the blonde did X” in the entire fic! ♥ ♥ ♥
