Hey Nix!

I'm here for our review swap!

This is only the second time ever that I've read a Draco/Harry pairing, so I'm excited to see how you pull it off.

It's interesting hearing this in Draco's voice. His need and want for Harry is so confusing because we know that in cannon they hate each other so strongly. I found myself wishing that I had a bit of context for how they got into this relationship. What happened that bridged that much animosity? Who initiated it? Please, write a prequel.

Now as far as sinking a ship goes, I think you've definitely sunk it successfully. After what Draco is about to do, I don't think there's anyway for him to forgive Draco enough for a relationship. In fact, I think that Harry will grow to hate the thought that they ever had a relationship at all.

This does make me feel some sympathy for Draco. Not only is he giving up his safety and well-being, but now he's giving up the man that he loves as well. The Death Eaters have quite literally destroyed him.

The only constructive criticism I have is what I've already touched on. I would like to see this expanded on. It's hard to get really invested in this pairing without knowing how they got together in the first place. I think a bit more detail in the beginning section, maybe Draco recalling some memory of them when they first got together would help.

All in all, a good chapter. It certainly meets the challenge requirements.

Good job!


Author's Response: Hi! I do intend to write a prequel--and some sequels--to explain everything, because I can understand how this might be confusing, but it is AU. I just got stuck on this while writing and ending up cutting straight to the ending basically...

Yes, I do think I've sucessfully sunk them... or have I? I don't know yet. That sequel is going to be very hard to write. I'm glad you can feel sympathy for Draco though. He's always been a sympathetic character in my mind, and I really enjoy writing him. And you've got that pretty spot on, the Death Eaters have taken any chance at happiness away from Draco, but at the same time, he's accepted it, knowing he must still continue to play his part.

Thanks so much for the review swap!
