This is genslash, so it is not a love story at its core. Love is a part of it in more ways than one, but this ain't romance. Harry/Draco and other pairings (het and slash) are imminent. If you're the type to get bored if Harry and Draco aren't USTing all over each other by the fifth chapter, this story will bore you to tears. Overall, it's rated NC-17 with a blanket warning for dub-con, D/s, and violence. Additional warnings will probably show up as I go along, but they'll only be listed if relevant to the current chapter.
This story is AU because it ignores the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It assumes a Muggle world where J.K. Rowling never wrote the Harry Potter series: I suppose it would be the same Muggle world we see in the books, except I'm going to try and write it true to "our" life rather than the caricatures JKR painted of Muggles in canon, so perhaps it can be called AU for that, too.
Oh, and it's going to be pretty long. :S
