Author’s Note: This was the very first new fanfic I posted upon starting my LJ back in 2006. It wasn’t for a fest or anything, just to fulfill the urge to write. At the time I started writing it, I still thought I hated Draco and wasn’t feeling too kindly toward Snape, either. I was in love with both, individually and as a pairing, by the end of writing it. Here’s what the naive me wrote at the time: “I’m a little shocked I decided to start with something that gets quite brutal, which is a departure from my usual fare, somewhat. Not every story I write will be this packed with cruelty and nonconsensual situations (not every story will be so packed with Slytherins…)” Well, it’s true not EVERY story… but…!
