    Summary

    During one of their regular study sessions, Bakugou, in a rare moment of vulnerability, admits to Kirishima that a Support Studies student asked him out.

    Kirishima carelessly replies, “why would he ask you out?” because everyone knows Bakugou is his even if it’s not official just yet.

    That isn’t as obvious to Bakugou and as far as he’s concerned, Kirishima just confirmed not only does he not want him but he can't imagine why anyone would.

    Summary

    ‘Christmas Courting’ or ‘Yuletide Courting’ is an ancient ritual that many Pure-blood wizards - and all members of the Sacred 28 - go through when choosing their intended. A notice is published to the public on the 1st of December announcing their intention of beginning the ritual. Ten Courting Rituals are chosen from the suitable options for the time by the Courtee and their family.

    Draco has no family, limited prospects and a legacy he needs to live up to, so on the 1st of December his name is published on the Christmas Courting list with Blaise backing him through the process as suiters vie for his hand. The Malfoy name is still worth something in the right circles.

    Harry barely manages to fit in work, life and coffee into each day. When he accidently applies to Malfoy’s Courting it quickly takes up more time than it should. He doesn’t want to win … just … he’ll make up an excuse later.

    Malfoy has always been a bit of an obsession, of course he’d have time for that.

    Summary

    Five years after the war, Draco Malfoy has fought everything and everyone to get to where he is. Sure, his mental health might be shit, but he has a job and that's something, right? He thought that having an Auror drop in for a surprise inspection of his Potions' lab was bad enough, but why is the Auror wearing a glamour? And why is the custom potion he wants so urgent and shrouded in secrecy? When people start dying, Draco gets consulted for a case with none other than Auror bloody Potter.

    Aka a semi self-indulgent fic where Draco is a very smart, broken, soft boy and Harry is a big bad Auror who actually kind of has his shit together... maybe. Probably not. A lot of people want to cause problems for them. But Harry has a bit of a 'thing' for saving people. And Draco definitely needs saving. But progress isn't linear and it's much easier to heal when you aren't entirely alone.

    Summary

    Apparently, seven years had done nothing to stamp out Harry's hot, coursing anger at everything Malfoy said and did. Their reunion was going nothing how he’d imagined—encountering Malfoy years later, real mature and worldly, all unruffled by him and his pitiful vindictiveness. Getting the last laugh. Not that Harry had imagined it.

    “Listen,” Malfoy said, his voice tight, “I wouldn’t be here if there was nothing in it for you.”

    “In what, Malfoy?” Harry asked, suddenly exhausted with it all.

    “I need you to teach me the Patronus Charm.”

     

    Seven years after the end of the war, Harry has made a quiet life for himself, as Defense Against the Dark Arts professor. Dark magic looms just beyond the horizon, but all Harry wants is to be left out of it. Until Malfoy asks him to teach him the Patronus Charm. Harry agrees out of suspicion. No other reason.

    Summary

    “You’re an Unspeakable!”
    Draco Malfoy stops, his hand on the doorknob to the staircase.
    “An excellent observation, Potter.” He says dryly. “May I continue on the way to my job there? I am supposed to be on the clock right now; I was already running late…”
    “I started looking into it.” Harry says quickly, “If I had known you worked for the Ministry when we talked before, I would have asked for your help. As is, we could use an ongoing informant.”
    “I’m a researcher, Potter. Not law enforcement. I did my part; do yours.”
    “But-”
    “Unless you want to go back in time; I’ve given all the help I can give.” Draco cuts across him, opening the stairway door.
    “Wait-” Harry says, blinking quickly as he watches Draco disappear down the stairs. “Is that an actual option?”
    ---
    Nearly a decade after the second wizarding war, there's rumblings of a coming third, and Unspeakable Draco Malfoy tries warning the Head of the Auror department, Harry Potter, about the troubling signs he's seen around him, but when Harry takes an off hand comment related to Draco's research seriously, everything changes.
