Amongst the first 30 Harry/Draco fics I read was The Reader by Aja. I love this story because it deals with the power of words; how they affect the mood of people facing overwhelming odds. It's a stark tale, laced with hope in the figure of the Reader.
The story has stuck in my mind through the years, and I have reread it once or twice. It's a very uplifting tale in which Draco plays an unforgettable role.
I liked and admired Harry from the books, but some fanfic authors - they made me love Draco :)
