Original request/Bunny (submitted by grey_hunter)
Scenario: Draco is a recidivist [originally: recidivous] offender. He has been AK-ed, hanged, Kissed, shot by a Muggle gun, whatever you can imagine. And he just keeps coming back! (Draco doesn't know he is a vampire, especially because he loses his memory after each 'death'. Harry is an Auror but he is the only one who is trying to save Draco from himself rather than condemn him at the first sight. For the others, Draco is on the quick way to become the Boggart in the cupboard. They don't know he is a vampire either, until the very end. Oh, and Draco isn't actually guilty in any of the things he has been sentenced to death for.)
Cool things: crack or humour, keeping them still IC, Harry using the phrase "what's at stake" [the only thing I didn’t get in]
Squicks: hm... I think purple prose too serious romance wouldn't fit into this one. Humorous romance = <3
It's been centuries of living within the Malfoy influence for Draco. Once he has Harry Potter in his life, things change!
