I wish Draco and Ginny would have been canon. I feel like Draco would have probably started out trying to get back at Ron and the Weasleys by probably pursuing Ginny, only to discover that she was more than what he bargained for.
She would help him to see the good in the world as well as inside of him, and maybe he would have came to the realization much earlier that being a Death Eater was not the way to live, and that serving Voldemort was wrong.
I think that Ginny would have melted his frozen heart.

oOOOoH this was such an intriguing ask! To be honest with you, I haven’t actually read many stories that involve criminals, mafia gangs etc. but it’s an interesting concept! Below are some faves that I hope you’ll enjoy reading :)
The Darklist - by dysonrules (87k) When Draco Malfoy, wanted criminal, strolled into the Ministry to give himself up, he seemed destined for Azkaban until he offered to hand over information to avert an upcoming crime. Of course, he refused to divulge that knowledge to anyone but Harry Potter. (The plot in this story is super, duper good! The sexual tension and flirting between Draco and Harry just keeps on growing and growing as the story progresses, and it’s honestly such a riveting fic)
Up Jumped the Devil- by mijeli (1k) The chase goes on, no matter who is running. (Criminal Draco + Auror Harry = a hella complicated relationship and some hot sex)
I’m Glad You Came (Because Otherwise It’d Have Cost You Your Ugly Mug) - by EllaWinchester24 (3k) The one where Harry is a precious baby who doesn’t thinks he needs protection (SPOILER ALERT: he does) and Karkaroff and his disgusting teeth kidnap him. But BAMF!Draco will mow down the person who dares to touch his fiance. Not without throwing a melodramatic bitchfit, though. (Oh my god this was hilarious and amazing on so many levels! Draco was a total badass at being a Mafia boss (I’m totally in on Mobster!Draco now). You guys gotta read it for sure)
When the Cat Comes to Stay, the Mouse Shall Play- by Darkravenwrote (2k) But in this convoluted game between Draco, an auror gunning for a promotion he will never get on a murder case, and Harry, the Curse Collector, a twisted vigilante who has convinced himself he is doing good - who is the cat? And who is the hunted little mouse? (Mmmm all of the tension and dark undertones of the fic were awesome!)
