Summary: When Draco Malfoy’s mental health mysteriously declines, he is placed under the care of the only person he responds to: Harry Potter. Includes mental disorders (paranoid schizophrenia, Dissociative Identity Disorder, post-traumatic stress).

My Review: Okay, so I wasn’t sure about this fic to begin with. I knew because of Draco suffering with multiple personality disorder this wouldn’t be the Draco Malfoy we all know and love. However, this fic really grew on me, and at some point I realised I loved it. It was so unique and intriguing, I was simply glued to my laptop. And even thought Draco is not canon Draco, it’s still undeniably Draco. Its hard to explain. And Harry was wonderful, really well written, and his uncertainty was exactly canon and perfect. This fic was heavy, but not drag to read; it was funny and lively. This fic is wildly different, a joy and pleasure to read; I hope you all read this beauty.

Accoding to wikipedia:

The manga series Kandō Ō Retsuden featured a story about Michiba in volume 2, called Michiba Rokusaburō Monogatari. The data collecting and organizing was made by Yasuo Negishi and it was illustrated by Yoshihiro Takahashi.[1]

Tried searching for it, but just found a stub article on Gingapedia about it 9it did have this picture in it, though).  Anyone know where I can find it online? (Or  at least somewhere where I may buy volume 2 of this series?)
