Love Conquers All…or not

FANDOM: Harry Potter
CHARACTER: Draco Malfoy
PAIRING: Draco/Hermione
RATING: General
NOTES: A snapshot into the past, aka I was still writing very angsty drabbles in the middle of the night, even all the way back in 2005.

Draco reflects…kinda sad. But thoughtful.

Looking back was something he wasn’t fond of. And yet he was. It was a time of naïveté for them both. He’d risked everything for her. He’d loved her more than anything, and she him. They believed that their love could conquer anything.

Somehow, they had believed that they could conquer his parents’ anger. How very naïve of them. His father’s hate of muggle-borns was too deeply ingrained in his mind to ever be overlooked, especially for something so “petty” as love.

Love conquers all…ha. At his wedding announcement, his parents had promptly disowned him. He’d lost all his supposed friends. They’d been hiding since they had been wed. Former Death Eaters would kill him for betraying them and consorting for a mudblood.

For her, he’d given up his paradise, lost his Eden. But it was all worth it, because once he thought about it, she was his paradise.
