Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter: Necromancy, Necrophilia, and Nargles

December 24, 2010 Leave a comment

“Necromancy, Necrophilia, and Nargles” is an HP fic featuring Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter. It’s been written by Ayla Pascal.

In this story, an empoverished Draco agrees to help Harry in an unusual project. Soon Malfoy finds out that he is going to need help as well.

Not-a-shipper alert: Considering the popularity of the pairing Draco/Harry (or Harry/Draco, I don’t care), I think a fair warning is in order here. I’m not a Drarry shipper. If you’re looking for the kind of review which reinforces the idea that these characters are cute/hot/perfect together, I’m sorry but you won’t find it here. And no, this fic hasn’t “converted me.” Ships aren’t a religion!

Now, onto the actual review:

This fic made me laugh out loud! There’s so much irony and wit in it. The dialogues are a delight to read.

The worldbuilding has been carefully done. I must highlight the potion brewing process, for it feels quite realistic.

Harry is by far the least interesting character in this fic. If he disappeared, I wouldn’t miss him at all. On the other hand, Draco is incredibly likeable here. It’s hard not to care and cheer for him–and this is saying something, as Draco belongs to my “least favourite HP characters” list. Pansy is amazing as well; I love her scenes with Draco. There are still other characters whose names I won’t mention because I want to avoid spoilers, but I can tell you that I loved their participation in this story!
