    Summary

    It is the summer of Harry Black's sixteenth birthday. Only a year from his legal majority, the adopted Heir of the House of Black feels the pressures of his position getting heavier with every day, in the middle of a rapidly worsening political situation. Jules Potter, his former brother, is coping with the recent loss of their father James and the heavy expectations of a world obsessed with the Boy Who Lived.

    War is on the horizon, and pawn or player, neither Harry nor Jules can escape.

    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.

    Summary

    Harry Potter is cold.
    (He is always cold.)
    Harry Potter was placed with the Durselys to hide him away.
    It was unfortunate, but the wards took this one step further. Lily Potter nee Evans was rushed. The protection she had cast was shoddy and slapped together in an act of desperation, fear, and sheer spite.
    Her baby would live and her baby would be hidden.
    The wards allowed nothing less.
    ...***...
    This is not a story of a brave Boy-Who-Lived. This is not a story of the Boy Who Lived at all.
    Harry Potter was cold and no one seemed to notice.

    Summary

    The war was over.

    Or at least that’s what the papers said.

    They’d been saying it, for months, as if people needed reminding.

    Maybe they did.

    ***

    In which Harry and Draco both run away from their pasts and conveniently choose to hide in the same tiny American town.

    It's super.

    "This is Harry and Tom, trapped in mad mad circles of each other’s orbit, two suns burning out into black holes."

    they are so toxic but i love it, tom and harry invented the enemies&lovers trope. i would die for this fic tbh
