[HP – Harry/Draco] Maya – Drop Dead Gorgeous

Title: Drop Dead Gorgeous
Author: Maya
Rating: R || Status: Complete
Summary: Veela!Harry fic.


“Of course, my dear boy,” Slughorn told him, beaming. “I realise this may come as a shock to you, but our investigations have been going on for some time, and we’re quite sure. Your mother Lily Evans was not, as we had all previously believed, of pure Muggle stock. One of her ancestors was a Veela.”

Malfoy’s laughter came with renewed vigour from under the table. Harry kicked him in the ribs.

“Look,” he said. “Surely there’s some mistake-”

“Oh no,” Slughorn said genially. “Actually it explains a lot. A pureblood boy like James Potter, prejudiced or not, might well hav ebeen expected to steer clear of a Muggleborn girl. Yet for five years he pursued her, as the saying goes, as if he was a lad on his first trip to Hogsmeade and she was carrying Honeydukes around in her knickers.”

“Because he loved her!” Harry shouted. “And – and who says that, anyway? I don’t say that!”

“Oh yes,” Slughorn said, in a sleek, satisfied sort of way. “He loved her. And Peter Pettigrew loved her, and Sirius Black loved her, and Remus Lupin loved her. And Regulus Black loved her, and I myself yearned for her, and Severus Snape too was possessed by secret passion for the lovely Lily. Don’t you find this list of lovers a little odd? It’s practically a roll call.”

Maya has taken all her fics down since she became a published author.


I love DDG to BITS! Seriously, I think this might be my favorite Maya fic! I just love the way Harry and Draco interact throughout this fic. It’s kinda jump-y timeline-wise, but you get used to it. I love how their history working together is slowly revealed, and how Harry slowly develops feelings for Draco and it’s just so.. GAH! And then there’s all the Maya humor which is just awesome. *lovelovelove* And then, later in the fic when they get together and it’s just so..! GOD. This one is pretty amazing. (Seriously, have reread this one a bazillion times since it’s been finished, I’m so not even kidding.)

    I’ve seen this fic pop up a lot of times tonight. Seeing as this fic was rec’d a lot of times and has been called a classic, I obviously wanted to read it. Imagine my dismay when I found out that it was taken down.

    After some Googling, I found some links where you can download “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and some of Maya’s other fics. Turns out that she allowed her readers to download and save her fics before she removed them entirely.

    For those who want to read Maya’s works, try Googling “The Complete Works of Maya”. There’s a lot of stuff floating around there.
