You must take some time, set some time aside, I mean, and read "Another Mask Behind You" by lettered. I mean, you really must. Even if you read the first few paragraphs and think "what was TM thinking? This isn't earth-shattering at all?" You must continue reading it because you are going to love it. Just love it. Because Oh. My. Heavens that was so fucking excellent. I think lettered damn near killed me. I was desperate to find out how it would end and horrified that it was going to end. And then it ended. I wish I could read it for the first time again.
I guess the part I loved best was Draco's constant and never-ending determination to keep going, even though he kept fucking up, even though he kept contradicting his previous convictions and decisions. Lettered summed that up so well at the end with one conversational back-and-forth, but you see it over and over again in the fic, and your heart just breaks for him, even as you cheer him on to keep trying.
I also really loved the way Harry kept changing in Draco's estimation. He was ugly, and his eyes were tiny, and he was stupid, and then slowlyslowly, he became the sexiest man who ever lived who should always wear black tshirts and possibly Draco was just a little obsessed. That was wonderfully funny and touching. :D Really, so much of this was wonderfully funny and incredibly touching. Lettered made me laugh and she made me cry.
Go read the damn thing, even if it will take you a couple of days.
Another Mask Behind You
Summary: Draco is a high-end prostitute who hides his identity. Harry unknowingly hires him. And then there is porn, questions about identity, domestic bliss, more porn, and truth as seen through a web of lies. (And then more porn. Seriously, if you don’t want sex scene after sex scene you probably shouldn’t read this. And please read the warnings.)
almost all of this is dubcon depending on your definition
the non-con isn’t super graphic but it does get quite uncomfortable
past suicide of a minor character
past death of another minor character
D/s elements but the dynamic shifts back and forth
BDSM but it’s not formalized
threat of whipping
Mentions of past abuse
negative attitude towards sex work
lots of pet names
the felching isn’t graphic
but the rimming is
infidelity but it depends on your definition
not infidelity in an explicitly committed relationship
