Harry Potter, was the boy who lived. As a baby, his parents were ripped away from him by a man who cared of nothing but his self, and his power. For 10 years Harry endured life with his Aunt and Uncle --and their pudgy, demanding son Dudley-- in which he was barely recognized as a part of the family. Midnight, turning onto the day of his 11th Birthday, his life would be changed forever. He began to learn the truth of who he was --what he was-- and in 2 weeks time, the dream became a reality.
He was accepted with some, loathed by others. But it was what he had been looking for. Slowly, Harry passed through his 1st year, his second year, third, 4th, 5th, 6th... beating the odds, saving his life among other's, and escaping the wrath of Voldemort --he who must not be named-- repeatedly.
But, then, things started to change again. Harry's 7th, and last year, brought another change. Possibly the biggest one of all. And, solving the problems, hiding the truth, would prove to be the hardest thing he's ever had to accomplish.
Draco Malfoy. Rich Family. Loving Parents. High Expectaions. All of his life, Draco was expected to be great, to live up to his father, and he was more then happy to do so. He was raised by his parents, being fed the knowledge of what he was and who he was going to be. He was going to be like his father, he was going to be working along side he-who-must-not-be-named.
Through out his years at Hogwarts, Draco accepted what he was to be, accepted his fate. Never was he asked if he wanted to become a death eater. It wasn't ever a question. By the time he actually met the Potter boy, he didn't mind too much that in the end, he would be challanging the boy and making him fight for his life. Year after year, he was taught skills at the school and at home. Then, the year came when everthing that had been set in stone, everything had made sense, changed.
Draco's 7th year proved to be the hardest of all. And not because of the pressure from his father or his father's peers. Not from the over bearing teachers pushing down on him as well as his classmates for grades in N.E.W.T. No... It was because something unexpected, something forbidden, came to him and slapped him in the face.
Hogwarts, 7th year, brought a change to all students. But for Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, the changes were something neither of them had ever imagined. Thrown together, battle surged between them. Loathing and hatred was apparent. Draco's goal in the end was to kill Harry. Harry's goal in the end was just to stay alive. With emotions running high, expectations surging around them, what then happened was something neither of them expected.
For after all, how can you not want to harm your enemy? How can you want to go against the grain and say no to all that you knew? How, can you fall in love, with the boy from across the room? And how, do you go on, when if people around you knew you could possibly be killed?
