Jaiden Spencer has never had it so good. She's the new Head Girl at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, she's dating Ron (who we're helpfully informed is very nice) and everything is peachy. Well, apart from Voldemort being on the loose. While sneaking around the Hogwarts grounds at night to spy on Voldemort, who has apparently set up camp right outside the school, she discovers an unwelcome secret about her wonderful boyfriend. Who immediately becomes a whole lot less wonderful. But at least she has the Head Boy Draco Malfoy to go running to in their oh-so-handy and non-canonical private quarters.

Welcome to Dark Secrets by Jaiden (ahem) Lee Malfoy. The story can be found here and a forum thread sporking it here (both links NSFW). The sequel Betrayed Revenge, featuring less Wangst but just as much Canon Defilement and evil!Ron coming back from the dead, is here and sporked here.

See also The Last War, which has a similarly Lifetime Movie of the Week plot.

Dark Secrets contains examples of:

  "Hades... father of the underworld, greatest of the Greek Gods, I call upon you to release a young spirit taken from this earth so violently... I... offer you this blood sacrifice..." He paused, in his right hand a dagger appeared, turning slightly he shoved the dagger into Wormtail’s abdomen, releasing the dagger, he threw Wormtail into the fired, his shrieks of pain followed echoing off the stone walls, they quickly diminished "In return for thy spirit of Ronald Weasley..."

  " Are you sure? " He asked, making sure this is what she wanted.

  • Shout-Out: Ron to Mary Sue when he's sneaked into her room at night: "My preciousss" In the story it's supposed to be horrifying, butit really isn't.
  • Shower of Angst: Chapter 7, possibly, since Jaiden exhibits about as much emotion as a brick wall.
  • Straw Misogynist: Guess.
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: "They had begun to fall in love with each other."
  • Too Dumb to Live: Ron's master plan when his dark secret is discovered is to... antagonise and alienate the one person who he's relying on not to make that secret public. Good going there.
    • After being beaten and raped, Jaiden decides to conceal her injuries with magic rather than telling a professor. Come to think of it, why doesn't she just tell someone about what Ron is doing? He's not exactly the most powerful wizard ever.
  • Transplanted Character Fic: The author only occasionally remembers that there's magic in the Potter Verse, having Draco mend Jaiden's injured foot with Muggle first aid when healing potions were mentioned two chapters ago, Ron attacking her several times without using so much as a single curse, and the central conflict resolved with a knife fight.
    • One time she does recall that it's a story about, you know, wizards, she has Ron Apparate within Hogwarts.
    • The sequel isn't quite so bad about this.
  • Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma: The writer appears to be under the impression that a comma is used at the end of all dialogue, even when it doesn't lead onto a dialogue tag.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: As well as Ron the Death Eater we have Dean the Death Eater who's killed in the first chapter and nobody back at the castle ever notices. It's the last we see of Voldemort himself, too.
