REC: And I Know the Spark

Hey, hey, hey, hey, you should read this. Listen to me! Read this story:

And I Know the Spark by anon at hd_hurtfest
Summary: All Draco cares about is keeping Potter alive, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that happens. (Harry/Draco, 6th-7th year AU, NC-17)

I know the themes are heavy. (Have a peek at the warnings. I don’t like listing them.) But it’s not a bat-you-over-the-head-and-make-lament-reading-it sort of story.  It's a story that uses these heavy themes to convince you of the enduring love Draco has for Harry. There’s pain, but there’s hope. There’s romance and there’s tension and, most obviously, amazingly well-crafted, well-written, compelling story-telling. You will savor the words and many a moment. Trust me! If you don’t mind the themes -- perhaps, even if you do mind the themes -- you will enjoy this read.

And support great authors with comments, please. :)

This is sitting open in a tab still because I owe it a comment. I just am incapable of stringing words together about it because whenever I try toactually say anything, it devolves into crying and repeating "oh fuck oh fuck"

It took me a couple days to comment, too. (Ironically, sometimes the best stories get missed because it's hard to feel you're doing them justice in your comment. At least, that's how I sometimes feel.) It's certainly an "oh fuck" story! My emotions were on a roller coaster, and yet I didn't want it to end.

I crawled out of my self-imposed exile to read this! I totally trust your taste. Loved it. Oh, Draco, my heart, the things you do for love.
