    Summary

    Harry Potter, of all people, knows that life isn’t always fair. And no one gets to be happy all of the time. But surely there’s something more—something better—than a rubbish Ministry job, and a lonely old house, and that feeling that everyone out there is doing a better job of living than Harry is.

    And it really doesn’t seem fair that Draco Malfoy is back in Harry’s life, all of a sudden, and even though he’s wandless, and living with Muggles, and making his mother cry with his lifestyle choices, he’s happy. So what's he doing right, that Harry isn’t?

    Because things don’t really change, do they? And if Harry can’t be happy, he’ll settle for a good night’s sleep, some posh antiques, and the opportunity to find out what Malfoy has been up to for all these years.

    And that’s what starts it all.

    Summary

    Trainees at the Department of Mysteries are kept under an identity-obscuring spell for two years. Harry doesn't even know who it is he's been falling in love with all this time. He's nervous about the Reveal, but really, what's the worst that could happen?

    Feat. Damaged Draco Malfoy, damaged Harry Potter, damaged everybody. Also, spies & intrigue!

    I was inspired to write this in part by the portrayal of The Department of Mysteries in Alpha_Exodus' 'You, a violent desire' so if you like that aspect of this fic, go check that one out! It's great.

    This is a gift for Tepre. Will she like it? I don't know. Let's find out.

    Summary

    Draco stared intently at the long strand of fiery red hair between his pinched fingertips and let out a shuddering breath. He could do this. He could.

    He had to find out what was going to happen to his parents, and if anyone was privy to that kind of private information - it was Potter.

    Draco took a breath, steeling himself. Raising the bubbling glass to his lips, he closed his eyes and swallowed.

    Summary


    It's not like they've been angrily hooking up on the sly since meeting at a Juniors skills camp in fucking Manitoba four years ago, except that's exactly what they've been doing.

    [ ALTERNATIVELY - Draco and Harry really need to talk about their feelings. ]
