Title: The Fear is Just an Illusion Author: _melodic_Rating:
Voldemort is dead but the war is far from over. Draco, once again, is torn between protecting his family and doing what is right. Secret meetings, conflicting loyalties, and grey morals bring Harry and him together but it’s also what could threaten to tear them apart. Content/Warning(s):
I don't think there's Weasley/Ron bashing in this fic as such, but there's definitely an unflattering characterisation of Ron and George Weasley. Though they see the error in their ways. ^^
This fic is so good. It starts immediately after Voldemort's defeat. It's in this moment that Lucius makes the decision to hide, and in doing so he looks for other Death Eaters, and so he found a small cell that is still planning to remain active, and Draco is caught up in this, because he hates
what this group stands for, but there's so little he can do for the other side, the "good" side , they are eager for revenge, so giving himself (or his family) up is just not an option. He's trapped with no good choices all over again. This time though, Harry found him, by pure chance, and so Draco starts being Harry's spy within this new group.
But you see, Harry has little power over the Ministry and everything they are doing for the sake of "peace." So Draco only
talks to Harry and, god, there's so much grief and fear and anger, and in between they are knowing each other all over again, and it's confusing and amazing and at time the only good thing going on for the both of them.
I don't know if I'm making this story justice, but it's got great characterisations of Harry and Draco and is amazing and touching and dramatic. Very powerful.
