    Summary

    Harry's been taking some time off after the war to find himself, but when McGonagall offers him a position as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, he decides it's time to reenter society. He just doesn't expect that his reentry will involve Draco Malfoy - the new flight instructor at Hogwarts!

    And seeing Malfoy as a glorified "gym teacher" is hilarious...until it's not. Harry's starting to feel weird, his heart is racing, and he's not quite sure he can figure out what it all means while keeping his students in line.

    Summary

    This is the part of the story where everything turns into a disaster. This is the part where the world turns on its head and everything spins out of control. This is the part where you come violently against Malfoy in a dingy back alley, with quicksilver in your veins, ashes on your tongue and eyes shut so tight your entire vision turns to white.

    Harry doesn't know what exactly he’s doing with Draco, he doesn't know how their unspoken agreement even started, and doesn't know where it will end. The only thing he knows is: they can't ever tell anyone about it.

    Or I'll never be your chosen one from Harry's point of view

    Summary

    Ten year old Harry Potter's life has once again been turned upside down, this time in the shape of a six month old baby cousin. Violet Elizabeth Dursley was once the apple of her parents’ eyes. Though a late surprise newcomer to their family, she was very much welcomed, especially to a Petunia who desperately wanted a daughter to dote upon.
    Three months later, Violet summons herself a bottle.
    Suddenly no longer the only freak in the house, Harry finds himself balancing the life of a servant to the Dursleys and primary caretaker of an infant. But before he can find equilibrium, another world-shattering change occurs:
    His Hogwarts letter.
    He has a choice: give up his responsibility to Violet and hope she'll be okay or risk sacrificing the freedom suddenly right in front of him.

    Summary

    ~ Children shall be made from vapour and mist, leftover kisses of stardust and torn, black, angel wings. ~

    Borne unto this world in sins and darkness, two lost souls shall once again come together as a whole. Alas, time has not been kind. Nor has fate. Following in the footsteps of one another without knowing, it was on this day October 31st, 1991, they once more crossed paths in full awareness.

    Slowly but surely, one awakes from slumber for the other to learn he is not lost..

    Summary

    Sirius was done, he did what he set out to do, sort of.
    The plan was to kill Peter. He didn't plan much beyond that, if anything. Sirius had given up on getting out of this alive a long time ago. Maybe it was loosing his friends, maybe it were the years in Azkaban. Proving his innocence didn't come to mind, maybe because a part of Sirius didn't believe that he deserved it. All he wanted was his revenge, he didn't have eyes for much more. He had forgotten that there could be more.
    Then he saw Harry, like a ghost of James but with Lily's eyes, somehow that changed things. It changed his plans. Seeing Harry brought back that spark of hope he had lost long ago, seeing Remus ignited it. Maybe he wasn't done, yet. Maybe there was more left to do. Maybe things could be better for all three of them.

    Set after Prisoner of Azkaban. It's also not canon compliant in the sense that Peter doesn't escape at the end and Sirius is proven innocent. Also, in this version the Dursley's treatment of Harry is much worse, please check out the tags.

    Summary

    It’s been five years since the Battle of Hogwarts and Harry Potter is an auror, who catches wind of a series of magical surges that he thinks are linked to something insidious, but with a mildly tarnished reputation, he has a hard time convincing people of the problem especially so soon after the war. Harry joins forces with unexpected allies to help him find the source of the magical surges and save the wizarding world again, even if it means going against the very Ministry for which he works.

    Summary

    Eleven-year-old Harry Potter is a little confused. Raised to believe she was nought but a freak and her parents were drunken, unemployed burdens to society, it's safe to say she's more than a little suspicious when a secret world hidden from ordinary people owes her for ending a vicious war.
    The problem is, the Harry that arrives at Hogwarts is a little different than most would expect, she's not about to lie down and let the illustrious Headmaster dictate her life. He left her at the Dursleys, now he's got the deal with the consequences.

    Summary

    Bloody hell, it’s going to be a long year, thought Harry as he exited the Great Hall. He had escaped the feast early, wanting to get away from the crowd, from all the familiar faces--and all the missing ones.

    He knew coming back to Hogwarts would be hard; but he hadn’t expected it to hurt that much.

    *

    What happened after the Battle of Hogwarts, Eight Year and Beyond. Not epilogue compliant. Endgame Draco/Harry.

    A lot is going to happen in this fic, which can be summed up with Harry Is Not Okay And Won't Be For A While.

    Summary

    (Kind of alternate universe since I forgot about a lot of things in Harry Potter)
    Draco is still living in his traumatic memories about his abusive father, being tortured by Lord Voldy-Moldy, being bullied- and basically, his life just fucking sucks and does a 180 on him. He used to have all of his friends, but even his Slytherin companions have turned their backs on him when they realized he tried to kill Dumbledore (But he was forced to, by the way!)
    And now Draco is mute because he thinks that no one would benefit from hearing his voice, that he'd be doing the wizarding world a favor by keeping his mouth shut.

    As close as they've become, Tom still has the habit of saying or doing the worst thing in response to Harry. Missing their anniversary dinner was the worst of it, but not the least awkward of his missteps.
