    Summary

    POV: You’re reading a Drarry fic written by a queer author who’s spent too many years in therapy. Yeah, get ready for ridiculous amounts of overanalysing, hard-earned emotional maturity, a hint of accountability, and more of that good self-improvement stuff Draco has to go through before Harry will give him the light of day. Or maybe, Harry is just as broken as Draco, and he's already fallen into a bit of a physical infatuation with Malfoy?

    In general, this Drarry fic was written to be both wish-fulfilment for touch-starved LGBTQ+ people and a more satisfying redemption arc for media nerds. In other words: more Catradora enemies-to-lovers, less Reylo last-minute half-assed redemption.

    So, do you overthink? Do you hyperfocus on the way your crush’s hair would feel against your fingers? Are you stuck in your emo phase? Or would you simply like to read a Harry Potter story where Hermione is non-binary and trans people exist in general? Stick around for a slow-burn fic walking the line between angst and comfort, with a fuckload of anxious overanalysing in the meantime.

    Updates every Monday and Thursday.

    Summary

    "It was like the universe had conspired to obliterate his self-control through unrelenting proximity."

    Disgraced ex-Death Eater, Draco Malfoy, was stumbling through post-war life and just trying to find a place that would hire him. He certainly didn't expect McGonagall to offer him a job back at Hogwarts. Just like he never could have suspected that he would be teaching alongside Harry fucking Potter.
    Which honestly would've been fine - if Draco didn't have a huge secret.

    He wanted him. He'd wanted him for years.

    Summary

    Hermione Granger is going to try her seventh year over again. She's going to be Head Girl. She's going to spend time with her friends. She's going to relax and enjoy a perfectly normal school year for the first time. She's going to earn her N.E.W.Ts so she can join the Ministry, and the Ministry is going to be new - reformed - revived.

    She's going to assist a student who's been rendered permanently blind after an assault during the summer. An assault while in Auror custody.

    *

    Professor McGonagall pushed open the door without ceremony and Hermione gaped at the teen slouched in a chair half-facing her. It couldn’t be.

    “Malfoy?”

    He jumped, crossed arms unfolding to grip the chair, as if he hadn’t seen her - because, of course, he couldn’t.

    Summary

    "You're a safe choice because you don't like me," Draco explained. "You have low expectations and can't be surprised or disgusted by me or the things I want."

    "Things, as in men? Sex with men?"

    Draco nodded.

    Post-war Draco needs to work through the shame and guilt that consume his life after the war. A Weasley catches his eye at the pub. He has his issues, too.

    Summary

    After testifying at The Malfoy Trial, Hermione makes plans to go back to Hogwarts with Ginny. She receives a shock that she is to be co-head with Draco Malfoy. Things have changed drastically for Draco, and it shows.

    Excerpt:

    Hermione woke suddenly with the book pressed to her chest. She blinked confused in the bright light before recognizing the handful of things that she had set around her room. She began to repeat to herself every morning when she woke up with a start.

    1. The War is over.
    2. You are at the Weasley’s, in a little cabin that you helped build. Harry is in the next room.
    3. You fell asleep reading, again.

    She groaned gently then settled in the bed deeper. Then peeled the book off of her chest and blinked blearily at the sentence she had highlighted the night before. “Don’t punish yourselves for people’s ignorant reactions to what we all are. Don’t let ignorance win. Let love.”

    Summary

    During fourth year some things happened that made Draco want to secretly redeem himself with people he used to pretend to hate. His first step are the Weasely's, he went out and racked up a bill buying things for them at a gift shop then returned to Hogwarts to wrap everything, but something odd happened.

    Potter caught him I the hall and processed to tease him by blocking his path. Draco doesn't like that at all, but little dose he know this won't be the time Potter "accidentally" runs into him in the halls.

    Also, LILLY AND SNAPE! YAY!

    Summary

    Harry dropped out of his seventh year, somehow unfit for normalcy. His dream of becoming an Auror is slipping through his fingers. He is directionless, frustrated, depressed.

    Draco can't control his magic anymore. He can barely leave his house, he can't study, he can't work. He doesn't know if there is any solution to his problems that doesn't involve being locked in St. Mungo's forever. Whatever flimsy hope he had of becoming a healer, of putting the past behind, is distant.

    They meet by pure happenstance.

    Summary

    Hermione sits above it all, and feels…

    Nothing.

    The necrosis eats at her will, keeping her locked onto the window sill peering out into a blanketing white world, and it stirs nothing in her bones.

    No, that’s not quite true. She feels the ache.

    ***

    He knows it’s not her, but he finds death cannot take a more pleasant form.

    The fire in his chest is consuming.

    She holds out her hand silently.

    He meets it without hesitation.

    Maybe the chill of the Black Lake will finally dampen the blaze in his bones.

    Summary

    [Title translation "Glow in the Dark"]

    Draco Malfoy is sent back to Hogwarts after the war to actually have a seventh year and complete his studies. He's the only Slytherin returning from his year and is convinced that he'll be shunned or kicked out or killed before he can even step onto the Hogwarts Express.

    With no friends (but when did he ever really have those), no sleep (but that's become the norm), and no motivation, how on earth will he maintain the prestige of the Malfoy family name? (not that he wants it anymore...)

    And since when did Ginny Weasley and Luna Lovegood start talking to him?!

    Summary

    Two years after the battle at Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy's trial has finally reached a sentencing. As part of probation, he's going to have to spend three full years living, working, and breathing as a muggle. As if that weren't bad enough, he isn't allowed any contact with family or friends. Oh, and he's sent to another continent - just for good measure. This is when he meets Araminta Thomas, his weathered 19-year-old coworker that has a fixation on caffeine and a keen (yet developing) eye for b--s-. She, in particular, drives him absolutely mad.

    How will Draco navigate his repulsion of all things muggle when he has no escape? His entire future depends on his probation being a success. And it goes without saying that nobody, under any circumstances, should ever learn about his "eventful" past. Not even if that person happens to be a certain 19-year-old... And what secrets does she have of her own, anyway?

    Summary

    Draco was kidnapped from the battlegrounds by Fenrir Greyback and kept prisoner for four years in a strip club, which is where Harry happens upon him and frees him. But Draco has spotty-to-no memory of anything further back than a couple years, and has no idea that he and Harry hate each other. He's also... different. Extremely different.

    Flashback scenes of non-con and violence (Not Harry/Draco).

    Summary

    As part of his penance program after the war, Draco returns to Hogwarts to retake seventh year. The Ministry is not at all kind (why would they be), his professors seem to both loathe and pity him, he's anxious all the time, and Harry Potter will always be a thorn in his side. Even if Potter is pretty okay at tutoring. Honestly, Harry is just trying to not make things worse.

    A story of PTSD, recovery, and redemption.

    Summary

    Scorpius Potter has lived an unremarkable life.

    He goes to school, helps his dad in the garden on school holidays, and talks to his friends about pointless irrelevant things.

    He doesn't fight wars, he doesn't kill Dark Lords and he doesn't ask his dad about who his mum is.

    That wouldn't be kosher.

    But now his dad is avoiding him, there is a Death Eater teaching at Hogwarts, and Scorpius is quickly realising that some things are not always as they seem.

    Summary

    In that moment, he knew two different things to be true:
    The first, that going back to Draco Malfoy's rooms was probably a terrible, terrible decision.
    The second, that he would do whatever Draco wanted, whatever he needed, because in the Days After it seemed that there was one thing that was important; Draco Malfoy was inevitable.

    Inevitable, but retold without the sex scenes for people who aren't super into smut.
