Title: After The End
Word count: 100
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG
Warnings: angst
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Authors Notes: This was written for the current challenge at dracoharry100, empty. A quick visit to the uni library necessitated writing a bit of fic, after all.

Draco didn’t scream when it happened; he stood quietly, then gave a little sigh into the Dementor’s mouth. Harry screamed, pain ripping through him as Draco dropped into a heap on the stone floor.

Kingsley offered Harry a job: they needed Aurors. Harry shook off the paternal hand on his shoulder, skin crawling.

Harry’d promised Draco, before the trial. “I’ll take care of you.” His influence hadn’t been enough to save him. But he could brush his hair and wash him and make sure Draco was warm and fed.

Draco wasn’t in pain. He watched with empty eyes while Harry cried.

;_; how depressing... I think I'd rather die than live without my soul.
26th-Aug-2009 03:26 pm (UTC)
Me too. :( I am awful.
25th-Aug-2009 04:38 pm (UTC)
Brrr. That's chilling.

Thanks! *hugs boys*

This is beyond depressing u_u

Sorry. :( Go and check my Smitten Series tag, it's mostly there for purposes of being ridiculously fluffy!

I wasn't complaining though. I love it depressing ^_^

Ohh, the exquisite angst!! This is utterly heartwrenching. The impact of the first paragraph chills me to the bone.

Fantastic work.

*reads it again*

Thank you! *grins*
*realises this is slightly inappropriate*
*looks serious and cuddles the boys*

This makes me very sad. This should not make me sad, as it is about characters I care little about and in a canon I'm not that fussed about any more.

Therefore: You win. Damn you.

(BTW there's a similar punishment in 'Dollhouse' if you watch it, it's another Whedon show-no way near as good as Firefly- but still pretty good-if it helps bring more fic like this I approve of you watching it)

*\o/* Victory is mine! Even though I do feel sad about the poor things.

I've seen Dollhouse! I like it, too. The whole Attic thing is scary, but I find it less frightening - probably because in theory it can be fixed, whereas the Dementor's Kiss is irrevocable.

Although I gotta say, my endless passionate crush on Faith is much bigger than my slight crush on Echo - partly because Eliza Dushku is so much skinnier and I am shallow.

(i figure the emoticons will give more accurate feedback this time around.) ...:''''(
26th-Aug-2009 03:35 pm (UTC)
Awww. Yeah, the emoticons are awesome feedback! I see your SADFACE.

Bad Ministry indeed. I edited out a sentence about how awful they are, vanishing all the Death Eaters so they don't have to face their own colloboration. Poor scapegoated Draco. :(

*hugs Harry so hard*
I er no but Draco aaaaaaaaaargh!
*hugs Harry some more*

This is very depressing. Poor Harry. Yes, Draco had his souls sucked out *hugs Draco too*, but Harry is living with the consequences of something he couldn't help, something he thinks of as a failure.
*hugs Harry again and won't let go*
30th-Aug-2009 08:30 pm (UTC)
Awwww. Yeah, in some ways it's much worse for Harry - getting up every day and seeing the remains of Draco.

This may actually be the most depressing thing I've ever written. :(

Umm, I kinda wrote something that could be an almost-sequel and it's weird, but if you want to read it let me know, cos I won't post it otherwise...
1st-Sep-2009 04:04 am (UTC)
Dude of course I wanna read it! A sort of sequel to my drabble?! I must see!
2nd-Sep-2009 03:38 pm (UTC)
Okok. I'm posting it now, with a link to this one. :)

This fic is sad and yet I love this more than any given basket of kittens.
31st-Aug-2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks! Angst is a beautiful thing.
2nd-Sep-2009 04:01 pm (UTC)
Chilling and very well done:)

Thank you!

oh god that was so sad, poor harry, poor draco

Thanks for commenting, anon! And yes, terribly sad :( I still feel sad thinking about Harry having to live with the empty, innocent remains of his boyfriend forever.
