    Summary

    Centuries ago, marriage contracts were the norm — ready-made alliances between families, expected and complied with, without complaint. But norms have a way of changing, and when a long-dormant contract flares to life, Harry has to navigate an unexpected splintering of the path he'd thought would be easy after the war... with Draco Malfoy.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single wizard in possession of a good fortune (but whose parents were regretfully involved in the losing and horrible side of the First Wizarding War and thus exiled to France for the last nine and twenty years) ((and who is reaching the tail end of his appropriate courting years with nary a candidate for a suitable partner in sight)) must return to England eventually.

    “Did you hear, Arthur? The Malfoy boy has taken back the Manor.”

    Probably the best Pride and Prejudice-inspired fic I've read. Instead of plopping the P&P plot into a fandom, it works together beautifully. Of course, it helps that the magical community is living in the past already...

    Summary

    “Typically coma patients are made comfortable and left to regain consciousness in their own time," Draco points out carefully.

    “Typically, yes. But when has anything about Harry been typical.” Hermione sighs, rubbing at her eye with the heel of her hand. “The Healer-in-Charge has consulted with experts at all the major wizarding hospitals. They all agree. Whatever’s happening inside of Harry’s head right now is killing him.”

    Draco Malfoy is a world-renowned dream-walker, and he may be Harry Potter’s only hope.

    Summary

    At first Harry wonders if they’ve managed to destroy his vaults and are trying to tell him in the most oblique way possible. But when he turns the page he realises they’ve found a vault. A vault in the name of Lily and James Potter.

    The parchment trembles a little in Harry’s hand. He takes another gulp of wine.

    Harry Potter left Britain after the war and didn’t look back. Ten years later, when Gringotts discovers a vault containing his parents’ belongings—including their badly spell-damaged wedding rings—he’s forced to face up to friends and family who’ve grown in ways he could never imagine, a wizarding London rebuilt beyond his expectations, and the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the entirely unforeseen problem of Draco Malfoy.

    Featuring pureblood wizarding traditions, ancestral magic, open mic nights, marriage equality, a diner in Brooklyn, and the return of Fleamont Potter.

    Summary

    After the war, Draco disappeared and started over in America, vowing never to return to Great Britain and the fraught past he left behind. Unfortunately, when his mates convince him to sign up for an exchange programme for the last year of their Auror Training, Draco learns that he doesn't have much of a choice in the matter.

    Summary

    After the Battle, Harry thinks he's left Hogwarts for good, but Minerva insists that all students return for an Eighth Year if they wish to sit for NEWTs in the spring, and Harry needs those NEWTs to go into the Aurors. Draco's just grateful not to be in Azkaban. Or the Manor. He's hoping he can steer clear of Potter this year and grapple with his own problems. Unfortunately for him, Potter appears to be one of those problems. And that's not even addressing the fact that Potter's got serious issues of his own, which Draco realises as he's forced to share an Eighth Year dormitory room and several classes with the Gryffindor Git. If only they can make it through the year without killing each other, it should be all right, shouldn't it?

    Summary

    On the cusp of a promotion, Harry needs a little help with his image. Enter Draco Malfoy — who doesn't really do that, Potter — to whip him into shape… and make him feel things he hasn't for a very long time.

    Featuring: odd jobs, surprising chemistry, lots of accidental kissing, the Prophet living up to type, owls exhausted by the carrying of dirty letters, a secret no one can talk about, a merry band of Slytherins (none of whom really approve), and an enchanted mirror (who really, really does).

    Some of them are lonely words, like code, or the answers to a crossword puzzle. Bellatrix – Surrey – Horcrux - Sunflowers. Harry reads them and wants to be sick. He does not know what meaning they contain, what they could possibly indicate about Draco’s life.

    Summary

    Potter has fame and fortune and posh clothes and all he wants is a simple life. Draco has a flat and a cat and a steady job and all he wants is a complicated life. Which makes you think this story has something exciting like body-swapping, but it doesn’t. Instead it has Indian takeaway and a blue jumper and people wanting a whole lot of what they can’t have, discovering themselves as they discover each other.

    It's hard to know how to describe this--in the end, one of the thoughts I'm left with is not that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, but rather that who we are is independent of which side we're on, and whether we cross the fence or not.
