Harry Potter: Abyss by zarahjoyce

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Draco Malfoy
Fic Title: Abyss
Author: zarahjoyce
Link: Abyss (
Rating/Warning(s): K+, character death
Genre: romance, war story
WIP?: no, complete

Why This Must Be Read: This is an oldie but goldie. One of the few stories I could read again and again. zarahjoyce is a master at writing Hermione and Draco in character and still make the pairing work beautifully. Hermione is proud, self-righteous and wounded while Draco is equally proud, messed up and arrogant as hell and they snap at each other while developing a bond in a great slow (at times torturingly so) way that makes sense to the last bit. Just the way I want them to interact with each other and fall in love with each other. I also love how zarah portrays Harry and the animosity between Draco and him in this story. All her characters are fleshed out and her plot has a bit of a rollercoaster ride which is perfectly fine since it keeps you on the edge right until the end. Really, I just love this story... and will now go back to reading it again ;)
