Title: Darkstar
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco

Author's Notes: Happy H/D holidays, Penny! <33333 You make fandom such a shiny place to be, and I hope you enjoy this. ♥ This story was heavily influenced by a range of literary and media works about special agents and their recruitment/training -- particularly the Jason Bourne series; a leitmotif phrase from The Recruit is used repeatedly. This story would be significantly poorer if not for the amazing beta-work by L & M. Many thanks also to J & T for coming through at the eleventh hour and putting up with my interpretive hand-flapping.

I absolutely bloody loved this. Will be re-reading later, definitely. Satisfyingly plotty, well written and the ending is so appropriate for the characters. Good stuff, thank you for sharing.

This was amazing. I really had a great time reading it and savoring the story. I loved how you described the whole training process Harry went through,it is so detail oriented it made me happy.
I absolutetly loved the description of Harry's new life but I am particularly in love with the ending. I am a big sap for good a story and a good ending and you gave me both.
I think I may have found my new favorite story.

Thanks a million for sharing.

I didn't expect to enjoy this - it seemed as if it would be a bit darker than I usually like - but I got more and more engrossed as it progressed, and the ending was PERFECT.

Superb-no other word for it. I was sucked in, and stayed in, and now I want to go back. My stars for you are not 'dark'. They are gold and they are many! Thanks so much!

Oh my god - I cried. I've only ever cried for one other story, and this one just carved, sharp and hard and brutal. The details were breathlessly exquisite; the loss of self utterly devastating; the desperation for something to make it all worthwhile was enough to still my heart.

This is one of the most exquisite things I have ever read. I will be reccing this.

Oh, wow, thank you very much -- I am very flattered. ♥ I'm very pleased that you enjoyed reading the story. :)

This is excellent - I don't think I've read anything like it in fandom before. Extremely well-written, and your characterization of both Harry and Draco was complex and deeply satisfying.

Thank you so much! ♥ I'm really pleased that you enjoyed reading. :>

super elle!!!: hp;  harryirrevokable on December 13th, 2009 05:11 am (UTC)
oh my goodness, i loved every word of this. ♥ the descriptions and complexities of how harry had to be stripped from his past were brilliant but my favourite part was definitely how draco is his only connection to the past in the end. killed the romantic in me, loved it!

Eeee, thank you so much, bb! I'm really glad you liked. :>

Holy crap. This was fantastic in every way. The kind of fantastic that makes me insanely jealous. Nicely done is all I can say.

Oh my, I can't believe the brilliance of this! I'm sure that this will end up being one of my absolute faves from the fest!! Sheer brilliance!!!

Thank you so much! That's very flattering. :">

That was intense! I love the sleeper agent universe you created, with its bleak settings and hollowed out characters. It was hard to imagine Harry letting go of his past, and I was so pleased that in the end he fought for at least of piece of it. I was ecstatic when I realized that Draco had as well. Great story :)

Thank you so much! ♥! I'm so pleased the story worked for you. :)

This story was epic. I was completely captured by the world here, the way Harry saw things and reacted to them.
The dark parts were especially gruesome, but then you got to the parts with Draco and things seemed to just relax and tense all at once (waiting, happy). I felt sorry for Luna, really, because she was such a hopeful creature. Perfect for the job, of course, but it was still sad to see that most of her happiness had detached.
I really liked that they both choose to leave the bond. That was a beautiful twist.
Wonderful job, here. I loved it!

Thank you so much! ♥ I'm really glad you enjoyed reading about this world! :)
boy, why are you crying?: <3 harry/dracoashe_frost on December 13th, 2009 08:05 am (UTC)
This is brilliant. It's extraordinarily well written (obvs--I mean, come on, how can you write like that and NOT know that?), touching, brutal, fucked up, beautiful, and so smart. I loved it to a ridiculous, ridiculous degree and am so insanely jealous of your writing ability that I have gone past jealousy into a sad sort of reverence generally reserved for celibate members of clergy. But, you know, in a good way. =) I will be reccing this, definitely, and re-reading for sure. Amazing, amazing job!

Thank you so much! ♥ I am sincerely flattered you enjoyed reading this story and really grateful for the rec. :D
