    Summary

    When Harry is referred to a professional cuddler for the soothing power of touch, he’s dubious — even more so when the Cuddler who shows up turns out to be Malfoy. But in the years since the war, Malfoy’s changed, and over the next several days Harry is confronted by how much he still doesn’t know about this new version of his old enemy — and by how much he wants to learn.

    Summary

    A group of wizards' rights activists retaliate against the Ministry after Hermione Granger wages a campaign to outlaw love potions. The group invents a sexual assault potion that throws the Ministry into chaos and starts a debate about the horror of magic’s role in sexual assault. Auror Harry Potter, Potions expert Draco Malfoy, Senior Undersecretary Hermione Granger, and Wheezes’ love potion expert Ron Weasley are assigned to the case. As they pursue the attackers and navigate the murky legal nature of consent, Harry and Draco are forced to confront their own desires.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This was fantastic!

    ETA: ok, I should have said more, I was just so overwhelmed when I finished reading it that nothing I'd been intending to say came to mind! So! Some time passed and it came back into my head!

    I kept thinking as I read this that I would want to tell you how timely this is, and then I kept thinking no, it isn't timely because of the Weinstein accusations, admissions and backlash. It's timeLESS because, just like Weinstein himself has been abusing women for as long as he thought he could get away with it, people have been sexually abusing other people for as long as they thought they could get away with it. And men have been accusing women of actually having all the power, and men whose power is being eroded (or even just illuminated) have reacted with sexual violence.

    That insult of having some "men's rights activist" call Hermione a "frigid whore" really stuck with me. They really are like that, aren't they? Transparently illogical, transparently concerned with their own penises, and transparent about thinking/wishing/turning those penises into weapons. Is she frigid, or is she a whore? They seem opposite, to me. But not to a man who thinks women are just there for his sexual fulfillment, and are not actually people. You really nailed them down. (Er, no pun intended!)

    And another thing I loved how you explored in detail was the question of consent. I loved how thoroughly they explored the real question of consent, how Draco's view was basically in agreement with Hermione's but still a bit more nuanced.

    (Choosing to drink throws me for a bit of a consent loop, too, philosophically. Do I really agree that an intoxicated person can't ever truly consent? What exactly is the definition of "intoxicated?" Is it different person-to-person? Because I think that one is almost certainly answered on a spectrum. Perhaps more pointedly, if I am drunk, can I really tell how drunk my date is? If I am too drunk to legally consent, but I want to fuck my date and know, intellectually, that I have wanted that for days, does that matter? Personally, I feel capable of making sexual decisions long past the point of being safe to drive. But I'm middle-aged. Do maturity and experience change the balance?)

    Anyway, that was great politically, great from a feminist viewpoint to be able to read all that, and also just so in character for both of them. And Harry and Ron, too, really, with them thinking that they had fully explored the issue and agreed with Hermione 100% simply because she was right, but Harry getting angry with Draco for trying to hash it out with Hermione. So in character!

    I loved the meandering POV. Starting with being in Ron's head, only finding out LONG into the fic that Harry and Draco had actually hooked up once before, etc. A beta once told me that I should NEVER change POV in a fic and fics like this prove to me that a skilled writer can absolutely pull that off successfully. You totally did!

    The focus on gender-neutral cursing, btw, was hilarious. And it took this American a while to parse "bellend," too, but when I pictured a bell, I figured it out. Great stuff!

    Just, all in all, the whole fic was such great stuff. Thank you for writing it! Reading it was a real pleasure.
