Summary: The day of Harry’s twelfth birthday had set all-new scores for worst ever. Between Aunt Petunia’s abuse, aching hunger and his horrible family deciding to have a dinner party that he most emphatically was not allowed to interrupt, he didn’t think it could get worse. Until it did. Discovering that his friends actually did care, that their letters had been stolen pushed Harry to the very edge of disaster. He needed those letters, no matter what Dobby said or did. But… …It was a trap. Saying “no” to that trap has a power beyond anything Harry has ever known. There’s a greater freedom in “no” than in anything Harry has ever learned. For Draco Malfoy, though, saying “yes”? Changes everything.

I am an indie publisher who started out in fandom until my canon (DC comics) got so bad I took my toys and went home to play with my own characters. If anyone is going to destroy my characters, it's gonna be me! ...Except that Keira sucked me in and here I am writing fanfic again. All credit for that goes squarely to her.


  1. I’m excited about the ritual magic tag. Dumbledore bashing is also a winner for me,

  2. I just read your bio.

    You are welcome, fandom!

  3. This is very good. Well done.

  4. This was beautifully written. I read all 3 parts at once! I adored how you described the events/thoughts/feelings that Harry and Draco went through. It was scary to realize how much harm one person could do, how well entrenched everything was. I can also see Harry knowing exactly how little he knows and pushing through anyway.

    The story had a wonderful ending! I loved how everyone came together to do it. Thank you for this wonderful story. I enjoyed it tremendously.
