Out of boredom Draco wanders into the Forbidden Forest at the beginning of Fourth year, and finds more than he could have ever imagined in an unexpected friendship.
Many thanks for the wonderful art that inspired this by SpencnerTibbsLuvr and for beating it for me. Thanks also to Drarryblack for alpha reading it and all the encouragement you provided while I was writing it.
There's a few things you need to know before you start. I changed a few things in canon. Voldemort only made one horcrux, the diary. Barty Crouch jr. is very dead. He died in Azkaban and there was no last-minute save by his mother. Ok then. Everything else is eventually explained in the fic. Hope you like it. I did tell canon to go f*** itself a lot. So you have been warned.
