    Summary

    Around the time most young children's do, Harry's hair goes from his father's dark locks to his mother's bright, most-likely-magical red hair. It changes everything about who Harry identifies with, who he wants to grow up to be, and who he thinks he is. Instead of having James Potter as his idol, Lily Potter turns out to be a much better influence.

    So instead of seeing a scruffy, most-likely-a-muggleborn boy standing beside him in Madam Malkin's before their first year, Draco only has eyes for the scarlet haired, green-eyed creature who just walked into his life and instead of an enemy, he finds a reason to be better than he'd been raised to be. Not that Harry will ever notice, given he's trying to simply survive at Hogwarts.

    And Severus might not make it to see these boys graduate when his heart kept giving out seeing his very-Slytherin godson repeat his own history and go chasing after a green-eyed, red-haired Gryffindor.

    Turns out the Malfoys aren't that bad and Dumbledore definitely is. Remus is at his wit's end and Sirius gets a chance to actually live up to his title as Harry's dogfather. Tom Riddle is not prepared for any of this.

    Taking the sea witch's place and becoming a queen on her own terms isn't how she'd planned on doing it.

    Summary

    She almost smiles, and true alarm starts to build in his chest. “I’m afraid I’m not here for something so small. Professor Roberts has resigned.”

    “Good,” Draco says honestly, “Would you like a list of suitable alternatives? I know a number of competent potions masters abroad, but then of course you’d have to hire another teacher to act as the Slytherin head. I’m afraid you’ve dried up all the half decent Slytherin Potions masters.”

    “Not all of them,” she says quietly.

    He blinks. She can’t be serious. “You can’t be serious.”

    “Gravely,” she says, “Mr. Malfoy, I am not above begging.”

    What the bloody fuck. “I don’t even like potions!”

    Draco returns to Hogwarts.

    He has a duty to his blood and his name and his house, and he will fulfill it.

    Summary

    Or, A Love Story in Three Beats

    “These records belong to my father. Waverly gave me his address, some nice house in the suburbs. Asked me if I wanted it for myself,” Gaby admitted after New York.

    “I was youngest KGB agent ever qualified. My comrades...were not pleasant about it,” Illya confessed as he stroked his scar in Amsterdam.

    “I was going to keep the watch,” Napoleon let slip while in Istanbul.

    Two years of missions, from trafficking rings to spy hunters, attempted kidnappings, underground boxing matches, and sanctioned bank robberies. The three of them have found sharing secrets helps.

    The traveling and the teamwork are nice, but the steadily building sexual tension none of them know how to acknowledge keeps causing a spike in their plans while working for a company that has barely gotten its feet under it. The best they can do is scramble.
