    Summary

    Contrary to what she claimed, it wasn’t grass and new parchment and spearmint toothpaste she smelled.

    A mind-boggling amalgamation of confusion followed by a peripheral realization, and then instantaneous fear made her flush so severely that the room went fuzzy around the edges of her vision as she choked out the lie.

    It was old parchment housed in the restricted section, tart green apples, and something spicy—not cinnamon, cloves?—that lingered inside her nostrils. She was woozy, her lids drooping heavily, even as a small part of her brain screamed at how wrong this was. A larger, louder part of her shoved the shame down in favor of baser instincts. Those instincts dampened and dissipated and the shame crowded in the further removed she was from the delicate, unmistakable scent wafting from the cauldron.

    Summary

    Draco Malfoy is dying. He's part-Veela and needs his mate to survive. Post-war, Hermione Granger is a workaholic, up to her eyeballs in legal activism on behalf of Magical Beings, and hasn't yet noticed that Malfoy is the Magical Being who needs her most.

    “Because I don’t want to be saved by you just because you feel like you have to.” He was properly furious now. “I’m in love with you."

    Hermione stared at him. She knew but somehow hearing him say it made the air shimmer with magic.

    "I’m in love with you,” he said again, despairingly. “And that means I want you to be as happy as you possibly can. And you won’t be, not with me.”

    Summary

    Millburn, at six-foot-three-inches, is used to feeling like a giant. He's used to towering over other people, of looking down all the time, of grinning sheepishly when people crane their necks to squint up at him.

    How's the weather up there? they ask, as if they're the first ones to think of it.

    Not bad, he says, usually.
