A Better Bargain Driven
by anonymous (for now)
Summary: Two years of war. Draco’s forgotten what it’s like to want something possible. But now, he has two things: the possibility of freedom from the Dark Lord, and Harry Potter’s arse. Perhaps not in that order.
Warnings: Torture, use of a truth potion, dub-con at the beginning (which I feel can be viewed as non-con but I can see how this is debatable)
I've never actually made a proper rec before, but this story made me want to.
It's set in a slight-AU, with Voldemort's war running a little differently, going on for longer. The story's main focus is on Draco, and it's such a wonderful insight into his character.
It begins with Draco living as a Death Eater and how that affects him, and then brings Harry into the story.
The characterisation in this fic are absolutely spot-on. The writing is powerful and intense, and really brings this world to life. This is a dark!fic, and though the warnings aren't a massive part of the story, you probably shouldn't read this if you want a light read. But if you're up for a war-centred fic with wonderful character building and a great storyline, then this is the story for you.
