    Chase This Light

    Chase This Light by Lady Altair

    Summary: “Draco Malfoy falls head over heels for Astoria Greengrass while he’s sneaking out of her engagement ball (in the most literal sense; he trips over her.)” Drama/Romance, 3,867 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Have you ever read something that leaves Draco Malfoy just as he is in canon, and yet makes him utterly delightful and sympathetic? Yeah, I hadn’t either, until I found this. It’s the most lovely way of weaving the name-only Astoria Greengrass into existence and into everyone’s least favourite snarky bastard’s life. I started grinning at the beginning, and just couldn’t stop; I hope you have the same reaction.

    Why You Might Not Care: Some people don’t like Draco, and you know what? I don’t blame them. However, it’s a good fic, and I enjoyed it. (What I didn’t enjoy was that it’s in three parts, and instead of links to the next chapter, you have to navigate to the journal’s main page to get to each one. Luckily, you don’t have to hunt far.)

      I disagree. This isn’t REALLY canon, because Jo’s “canon” Draco really falls flat when it comes to being a real person. This Draco Malfoy, though, is very much real with his own fears but still radiating smugness and just…

      It was really good. Thank you for this rec!

      There’s a fourth chapter of this piece under Lady Altair’s fanfiction.net account that’s not on her Live Journal. Sheer brilliance. Only an author this talented could make Draco this sympathetic.
