“You nearly run out of superlatives for Yuzuru Hanyu. But there’s one that comes to mind - inspirational… Right across the spectrum of sport, there are few performers, male or female, who are as special as this young man… We’re not talking here about the best skater of the year. We’re not even talking about the best skater of his generation. He may be one of the greatest skaters, if not the greatest skater, of all time… He can do anything, this guy. And put the quads in as well! Just sensational.”

To those of you who think you’ll never get over them,
You will. I promise, you will. It’ll take time. It’ll take tears. It’ll take pain and anger and sadness. But one day you will wake up and be thankful for things happening the way they did. You will find happiness again. I promise.

Summary:Chaos: when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future. One gene varies, one neuron fires, one butterfly flaps its wings, and Draco Malfoy’s life is completely different. Draco has always found a certain comfort in chaos. Perhaps he shouldn’t.
Review: This is… a whole new level of drarry fanfiction, you just have to read it.
Draco is a child genius, and get’s sorted into Ravenclaw and there are a lot more changes besides - but Draco’s voice, his mind, his personality, his actions and the relationship he forms with Harry (and how it affects both of them)… they’re all so unique and real and perfectly understood and written by the author.
Despite the difficult content and the length, the writing and flow of the plot makes it so easy to read and devour, with just enough lightness and humour to balance the dark and serious portions. It’s so crazy, and definitely AU right from the beginning of the Harry Potter series, but there’s no feeling of wrongness at all because it’s its own story - like a retelling.
I promise you that despite how strange and “not-worth-it” it feels to read an AU (at least that’s how I usually feel), this is one fic worth reading. This fic seriously got me good.
Content/Warnings: AU - Canon divergence, Science, Humour, Torture, Violence, Disability, Mentions of rape

Summary: Rumor has it that a wealthy investor is starting up a brand new professional Quidditch team and he’s looking for players. Harry and Draco both want to make the team, but there can be only one Seeker. Will competing for the position bring them closer or drive them further apart?
Review: Probably my favourite Quidditch drarry story! Because yes, it has all those things we love about this most beloved trope - match thrills, hot sex, “competitiveness” as a mask for intense flaming attraction lol - but so so much more.
All the featured characters are just so cool! It’s extremely fun reading as well, with rather unique ideas and a very well played out plot with some of the best characterisations and dialogue. An immediate rec for anyone looking for some fun and entertaining reading :)
Content/Warnings: Quidditch, Humour, Physical Training
