Prompt: #53 submitted by lomonaaeren
Summary: When Draco was five and six, Harry Potter was a myth, a legend; a story told in hushed, awed whispers. But Draco’s simple, childish mind turned him into a boy, a playmate with whom he would run down the manor’s empty echoing halls when Pansy and Blaise were away in France or Italy for the summer. That Harry was forgotten for a time, set aside for the trappings of maturity, when faith and youthful idealism were stripped away and the baleful cynicism of reality took their place. Until the day Draco finds himself once again in need of a legend. The Harry Potter he uncovers, however, is absolutely nothing like the one from the stories.
