Title: Ragnarok
Author: [personal profile] lomonaaeren
Pairings: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 51,911
Content/Warnings: discussion of suicide, arguably Dark versions of both characters, bottom!harry, politician!draco, powerful!harry, powerful!draco
Summary: Draco Malfoy, at thirty, is the youngest member of the Wizengamot. He thinks he has achieved the highest political power of which he's capable—until he learns the secret of Ragnarok, the elite corps of wizards who deal with "unsolvable" problems for the Wizengamot.
I was surprised at just how much I liked this, but I loved seeing not only a powerful Harry, but a powerful Draco as well. And even though they get a bit "dark lord" it is somehow quite believable; almost reasonable. Plus who doesn't love crazy, room destroying sex?

Title: The Incredible Race
Author: [personal profile] dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 52,325
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!draco, auror!fic, first time, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's travel fair 2010
Summary: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, Aurors, are forced to join a televised global race in order to provide some free positive publicity for the Ministry, despite the fact that Aurors Potter and Malfoy don't exactly get along.
Such a fun story. Interesting concept, and I loved the little interludes of Ron, Hermione and the gang watching the episodes and reacting to everything.

Title: Take the Air
Author: [personal profile] dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 52,810
Content/Warnings: auror!fic, auror!harry, auror!draco, hd_holidays 2011
Summary: Someone or something is attacking Muggles and leaving them for dead. Auror Harry Potter is assigned to the case, but with his usual partner unavailable, he is stuck with the worst, most anti-social, rude, and annoying Auror ever to walk the halls of the Ministry. Or perhaps he is only that way around Harry…
Wonderful fic with a believable pacing and build-up and the perfect balance of relationship development and auror plot. I loved seeing Draco slowly gain acceptance among his fellow aurors and watching Harry fall for Draco was lovely.

Title: Against All Odds

Rating: NC-17

Summary: Beauxbatons is hosting the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe, and Harry has promised to enroll Teddy as his birthday present. Meanwhile, Draco is stuck in his office, putting together the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe during, when he should be enjoying summer holidays.
Really wonderful fic with Draco as Quidditch instructor at Beauxbatons, organizing a Quidditch camp. And, of course, Harry comes along to enroll Teddy and gets roped into helping out and then ~feelings~ happen. I love the sense of atmosphere here - the various places in France were lovely, as was the use of French throughout. The connection between Draco and Harry was wonderful, and I really enjoyed how adult and mature they both were. Fabulous, sexy read with an extremely satisfying ending.

Title: The Darkness Before the Dawn

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~55,600
Warnings/Content: auror!fic, auror!harry, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: A mysterious creature is loose in London, stalking and killing people. Auror Harry Potter requests the help of a Liaison from the Beast Division and gets saddled with Draco Malfoy. Will they be able to stop the creature before it claims more lives?
Awesome case!fic! A savage beast is loose in London and it's up to Auror Potter and Beast Division Liason Malfoy to find and stop it. I loved the relationship between Draco and Harry here, the antagonism that turns into a wary trust. The characterizations are great and I really enjoyed watching their growing feelings against the fascinating backdrop of the case plot. Really engaging read!

Title: When It Alteration Finds
Author: <[archiveofourown.org profile] momatu
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Word Count: 56,000
Content/Warnings: baker!harry, author!draco, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's career fair 2012
Summary: After the war, Harry left most of the Wizarding world behind and built a new life for himself in the Channel Islands. He wanted a nice, quiet job where he could make people happy and listen to their stories. He opened a bakery and is happy with his life. Draco is a fiction author who writes under a penname, and he's currently suffering from writer's block. His agent suggests he try writing in a new environment and rents a cottage in the Channel Islands for him for the summer.
This fic was really fantastic. Not realizing their true identities allows them a chance to really build a realistic foundation for the relationship. The careers they chose for themselves are so believable, and the sexual tension is great. Plus the wanking scene, so hot!

Title: The Vanishing Department Series (2 Fics)
Author: [personal profile] dicta_contrion
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 56,791 total
Content/Warnings: rimming, intergluteal sex, unusual jobs, light bondage, light dub-con, [community profile] hd_erised fest 2014, face-fucking, dirty talk, implied bottom!draco
Summary: The things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, even if that involves a lot more form-filling, bickering, covert glancing, miscommunication, and flying furniture than we might expect.
OMG THIS FIC! It's just the greatest thing ever. First off, the Vanishing Department is the coolest, cleverest thing and the entire concept is really wonderfully fleshed out. Draco and Harry's voices are just perfection here and JFC the chemistry (and sex!) was so insanely hot. The whole thing just flew by. And then we get an awesome porny outtake with feeeeels!

Title: Antediluvia

Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Pansy/Ron, Padma/Hermione, Narcissa/OMC, Lee/OMC, past Hermione/Ron & Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~56,800
Content/Warnings: unusual jobs, professor!Draco, potionsmaster!Draco, [community profile] hd_erised 2016
Summary: Everyone always forgets about the Merpeople. So did Harry until the day his, Lee’s, and Hermione’s Portkeys land at Reagan National Airport’s Arrivals dais. He’s just had to leave a job he loves and pack his entire life—literally—into his luggage. Then Malfoy and his subplots arrive, and suddenly, saving the world again, one Mermaid at a time, sounds like the perfect excuse to do something he’s always wanted.
This fic is just so wonderful and clever and a little raw considering the current political climate, but that's part of what makes it so great. It's mostly set in present-day Washington D.C. and the politics that they're dealing with in Britain and the USA in both the Magical and Non-Magical communities is wonderful captured and portrayed. Very clever and engaging plot, brilliant characterizations and side-relationships, and a lovely development of Draco and Harry's relationship with some smut and pining and minor mistakes and a lovely resolution. This fic made for a wonderfully satisfying read, and if you're looking for something smart, witty, and politically relevant, I highly recommend!

Content/Warnings: auror!harry, bottom!Harry, poc!harry
Summary: Malfoy Manor has mould, dry rot and an infestation of unusually historical poltergeists. Harry Potter is on the case.
OH, this fic was just marvelous! The writing was wonderful, and the characterizations and relationships here were seriously fantastic. I loved all the interactions, and watching Draco and Harry dance around each other was charming. Just the right amount of plot and mystery to keep things moving along, and a really lovely connection between Harry and Draco. Clever, wonderfully written, a fantastic use of magic, and brilliant characterizations--what more could you ask for?

Summary: In which Draco knits, Harry makes wands, and things get very tangled up between them.
Such a fun and mega-hot fic! Love me some accidental bonding, and the dynamic here between Harry and Draco was fantastically hot. Beautiful development of feelings, and an awesome ending. :)

Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 61,080 in total
Content/Warnings: holiday!fic
Summary: Harry doesn't have time for rumours; he has a shop to run. Which is just as well, really.
This was a great fic with oblivious!Harry living and working with Draco, realizing he is in love with him and coming to terms with what that means and how that will affect their relationship. The characters in this are all so wonderful and I especially love Draco and the lovely OC Nisha.</span>

Title: For The Greater Good

Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~62,500
Content/Warnings: Bonding!Fic, Forced Proximity, bottom!draco, hd_erised 2017
Summary: When Harry and Draco discover they’ve been bonded to one another, neither one of them is prepared for the secrets they begin to uncover.
They learn that they can’t escape their past, or the things that have been left hidden there, and that sometimes the only way to move forward is to look back.
Oooo, such a good fic! I'm always a sucker for a good bonding!fic and the mystery of it all combined with the lovely relationship development made for a delightful read!

Title: Leopardspaw
Author: [personal profile] lomonaaeren
Pairing: Eventual Harry/Draco, Lucius/Narcissa
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 66,391
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, potionsmaster!draco, bottom!harry
Summary: The Ministry is very sorry that its latest mistake—an artifact that was supposed to let Aurors detect lies—blew up on Harry, and now he can detect lies every time someone tells one. (Inquiries are continuing). The Ministry is also sorry that they can't tell Harry how long the effect would last. (Unspeakables are working around the clock). And the Ministry would probably be two times sorrier if they knew that Draco Malfoy has hired Harry to find his father, who's escaped from Azkaban. (The Chosen One should be able to have a full and normal life).
An interesting premise and a laid-back, direct Harry. A lot of fun, plus a surprise guest!

Title: We Are Young (I'll Carry You Home Tonight)

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 68,826
Content/Warnings: friends with benefits, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!Harry, rimming, first person POV, hd_holidays 2011
Summary: Harry and Draco have been falling into bed on and off again since the last election five years ago, much to the amusement--and financial gain--of their circle of friends. But when Harry agrees to work with Draco to put Kingsley Shacklebolt into the Minister's office, they can't work side-by-side again every day and sleep together; that would be courting disaster. Wouldn't it?
Oh goodness, this was brilliant! The wizarding politics here were so freaking cool and well done and really created such a brilliant backdrop for the fic. Draco and Harry's chemistry was beyond fantastic, and the push and pull of their relationship, how their feelings grow without them really acknowledging what that means, oh, it was so good! The sex was fantastic, and I honestly just a LOT of feels throughout the whole thing. Some really brilliant side characters, and a wonderful sense of atmosphere made this fic feel incredibly real. Some heartache along the way, but a brilliant ending makes it all worth it. <3

Title: Tea and No Sympathy
Author: [personal profile] who_la_hoop
Pairing: Harry/Draco, mention of Harry/Justin, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~70,000
Content/Warnings: time travel, [community profile] hd_erised fest 2014
Summary: It's Potter's fault, of course, that Draco finds himself trapped in the same twenty-four-hour period, repeating itself over and over again. It's been nearly a year since the unpleasant business at Hogwarts, and Draco's getting on with his life quite nicely, thank you, until Harry sodding Potter steps in and ruins it all, just like always. At first, though, the time loop seems liberating. For the first time in his life, he can do anything, say anything, be anything, without consequence. But the more Draco repeats the day, the more he realises the uncomfortable truth: he's falling head over heels for the speccy git. And suddenly, the time loop feels like a trap. For how can he ever get Harry to love him back when time is, quite literally, against him?
Fabulous read that does a marvelous job with the time travel/Groundhog Day type trope. Draco is gorgeously characterized here, and watching him grow as a person and seeing him slowly fall in love with Harry is captivating. Funny and sweet and sexy as hell.

Summary: "Love is like a Rubix Cube: there are countless wrong twists and turns, but once you get it right, it's perfect no matter how you look at it." Seventy-thousand words of pornographic discourse between two boys-turned-men that still haven't learned how to communicate like normal people – with words. Guest appearances by Pansy Parkinson, Neville Longbottom, Hermione Granger, Blaise Zabini, Teddy Lupin, Gregory Goyle, the Weird Sisters, ex-wives, several Weasleys, a Boggart, and a Honey Badger.
Oh GOD, this fic was wonderful! Dom!Draco was all kinds of fantastic, and I seriously loved the dynamic between him and Harry. Harry was just a gorgeous and full of fire as ever, and the characterizations for the both of them were really amazing. Some seriously kinky, dirty sex with all kinds of BDSM goodness, if that's your thing. And woven through the filthy sex was a really lovely development of Harry and Draco's relationship. Pleasantly (and surprisingly) not too much angst, and a just all around very satisfying fic.

Such a wonderful fic with Draco driving the Knight Bus and Harry being extremely intrigued. There is an adorable Biddy club, some fantastic side characters and relationship, and a lovely build between Harry and Draco. Fun and sweet read!

Summary: Harry never expected he’d end up chipping away at his virginity while wandless and bonded to Malfoy in Northern Europe.
He never expected that would turn out to be the least surprising thing to happen while out on their training expedition in the middle of nowhere, either.
Really excellent fic! Not only is it wonderfully written, but it's chock full of all kinds of things I adore. I loved the concept of them being stuck out in the wilderness together and then we get bonding!fic and forced proximity and working together and shared bed and first times and it's just so good!!

Title: The Claiming of Grimmauld Place
Author: [personal profile] bixgirl1
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Hermione/Ron, Luna/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 74,437
Content/Warnings: intercrural sex, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, hd_erised 2017
Summary: When Grimmauld Place begins fighting against Harry’s ownership of it, he decides he needs help to train the historic home — but little does he expect that it’ll be Malfoy who’s most suitable for the challenge. However, as Malfoy and Harry get closer, Harry comes to understand that expectations aren’t always the best path by which to guide his heart — and in the process learns just what is needed to make a house a home.
Oh gosh, this was just such a delight to read! The concept was super interesting, and I really loved watching Grimmauld Place slowly fall under Harry's command. The idea of house magic was fascinating, and I really enjoyed seeing it all come together as Draco and Harry slowly fall for one another. Lovely.

Title: Stop and Stare

Pairing: Draco/Harry, Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count:78,314
Warnings/Content: switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, holiday!fic
Summary: Harry’s life is full of care, he has no time to stop or stare; he has no time for anyone’s shit, until his friends aren’t having it. A story about the unravelly things.
Such a beautiful fic. Harry and Draco are sort of part-time friends, until Harry is forced to encounter Draco more frequently and actually get to know him. The build is gorgeous and slow and not at all angsty. Just a really lovely, gentle fic with a very satisfying ending.

Summary: Revelations both painful and joyous set the markers in the path of every life. Thankfully, Draco has spectacular company for the journey.
This fic was fantastic and really beautifully written. The evolution of Draco is beautiful and this has probably the most believable redeemed/good Lucius that I've ever read. And the books were wonderful.

Such a lovely holiday fic with Harry being in a sort of funk in his life (and also completely mad for Draco). Watching them come together and find their happiness was just fabulous. Wonderful read. <3

Summary: When Draco Malfoy, wanted criminal, strolled into the Ministry to give himself up, he seemed destined for Azkaban, until he offered to hand over information to avert an upcoming crime. Of course, he refused to divulge that knowledge to anyone but Harry Potter.
This fic, it's just fantastic. A truly wonderful Draco, funny and witty and unapologetically criminal. His interactions with everybody are awesome, but especially his friendships with Pansy, and Blaise, and even Goyle (love what the author did with this character!). The tension and chemistry and relationship development between Draco and Harry is perfection and when they finally come together it's just lovely. Harry does start out the fic in a relationship with an OMC who, but it's not explicit (not even off screen!).

Summary: Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new DADA instructor, only to find his teaching efforts thwarted by a very familiar ghost.
As a rule, I tend not to read death fics, because they just make me too damn depressed. I need my boys alive and together! But despite the obvious angst in the fic, it also manages to be funny and sweet. And I love Ron in this, his interactions with Harry an Draco are wonderful.

Summary: When the wife of a star politician in the Scottish Ministry turns up dead just outside Hogsmeade, Draco Malfoy and his murder investigation team are called in from the Edinburgh Auror force to find her killer. What DCI Malfoy doesn't expect, however, is to have an ex from two decades past end up in his murder room, cocking up not only his case, but also his heart.
Just wow, this fic is amazing. This read like the best kind of murder mystery book, I didn't even feel like I was reading fanfiction. Draco especially was so fabulous and real and had such depth, I felt like every line was peeling back another layer, showing us another angle of this complex man. The team he created around himself was so beautiful and I thought it was super cool how the POV jumped around, showing us different perspectives. The plot! It was interesting and engaging and I didn't feel like it was overpowering the H/D romance angle, but really pushing it along. And then the sex! Which was really fucking hot. This fic is all kinds of fantastic.

Harry and Draco become embroiled in solving cases from the past, which all seem to lead towards something wicked, lurking deep in the shadows of the wizarding world.
The individual and overarching mystery is compelling, the evolution of Draco and Harry's relationship is well-paced and believable, the characterizations are spot-on, and the art is gorgeous. Go read it!

Like basically everything from [archiveofourown.org profile] saras_girl, this was brilliant. God, I loved all of Draco's stories and how he slowly starts to come into his own, and Stanley was a delight. And a truly fantastic Ron and Hermione.

Summary: A love story concerning possessed furniture, black silk pyjamas, courtroom drama, premonitions of doom, assassination attempts, Death Eater yoga, absinthe, bare feet and a sensible werewolf. Beware: coarse language, brief drug use, some sexual content, and consideration of issues of sexual consent.
Really great fic that goes AU pretty early in the books, with Draco turning spy for the Ministry of Magic. This was definitely a popular trope from back in the day, and I really loved this author's take on it. The seer aspect added some interesting perspective, and I thought it was handled and incorporated perfectly--it never felt like it overwhelmed the plot. I enjoyed the structure of the fic here, where the plot chapters were inter-cut with letters, Auror reports, and other non-traditional pieces of writing that clearly were relevant and moved the story forward. It was fun and well executed. And, of course, the characterizations were great. I love that Draco doesn't lose any of his spark, and that his bitterness over how things went down during the war is very obvious. It made for a redeemed but still recognizable Draco, and how Harry reacts and interacts with Draco is really wonderful. Great slow build of Harry's feelings, and while the main fic doesn't have the sex, the sequels more than make up for it.

Summary: Draco Malfoy wouldn't go back to England for anything less than an exceptional case. Being asked to figure out why Harry Potter can't control his magic might be exceptional enough to qualify.
This fic...well, it's hard to say in just a few words how amazing it is. It's got a absolutely magnificent Draco, some very clever magical theory, seriously amazing side characters, and a beautifully complex Harry. Draco's job was super cool, as was the whole reason for him being involved with Harry's particular case. The build here is very slow, but it's beautiful, and when Draco and Harry finally come together, it's so, so worth it! Some angst along the way, but I promise, you're in good hands here, and the ending is perfect.

Summary: Right smack in the middle of a stormy divorce from Ginny, Harry has no reason to be attracted to his Arguer, Draco Malfoy. I mean, it's Malfoy. // Harry and Draco have the perfect life. Or close enough to perfect for Draco to torture Ginny about it, at least.
I normally am not a fan of ginny bashing, but it kind of works for this fic. I love the dynamic between Draco and Harry is this fic, Draco as a wizarding divorce lawyer and Harry so captivated by him, especially in the "courtroom".

This fic was so unbelievably fantastic! The development of their relationship was perfectly pace, the tension and build-up was believable, and the dialogue was witty and funny. I loved characterizations of Harry and Draco here, and the side characters and original characters were truly fantastic (one of my favorite Ron's ever!). Plus there is mystery, and plot, and hot switching sex! Seriously such a great read.

Add in Harry’s trust problems, and it’s a good thing Draco’s confident.
This author writes the most unique stories. This concept is so interesting and really makes you think about what a mind-fuck this whole situation is. Really fascinating.

Summary: Draco Malfoy struggles with changed fortunes, shifted alliances, an ugly war, and an unusual spell, with the help of a concerned professor, an insightful house-elf, and an unexpected Gryffindor friend.
Gorgeous fic that goes AU after OotP. This has so many great things in it: spy!draco, cursed!harry, model!draco, sacrifice, hot sex, and a wonderful slow burn. The characterizations here are fantastic. One of my favorite Snape's and Dean is another stand-out character. Draco, of course, totally steal the show, as he should. I love that we get inside of his mind while he's still in school and see why he makes the choices he makes. He feels wonderfully real and in-character, and while I loved watching his relationship with Harry develop, that almost feels secondary to Draco's overall journey throughout the fic. And the sequel is a wonderful continuation in this universe. We get to learn more about Draco's past experiences during the war and see him and Harry work through their relationship and overcome the difficulties that two people with such fucked up pasts are bound to have. Very gripping series. :D

Summary: Harry is too busy ten years after the war to help out just one family, but that's exactly what he has to do. And as he hunts their enemy, magic no one understands is hunting him.
This fic has some confusing elements, but they are pretty well explained in the story and it makes for a unique story. Harry & Draco's relationship just evolves so naturally and you get to see them reach this perfect understanding of each other, it's great.

Content/Warnings: AU after HBP, switching, bottom!harry, but mostly bottom!draco, hung!harry, ginny bashing, bondage, sex toys, threesome (with a double), spit roasting
Summary: Draco’s got a theory. About sex. And after much searching for the right candidate, it appears that only Harry Potter, his life long enemy, can help him test it out.
I put off reading this story for so long because of the name, but I really enjoyed this one. Some people think it's way too long, but it's sweet and has some of the hottest sex scenes ever.

Rating: Hard R

Summary: Lucius curses Harry and Draco into a forced marriage. They're required only to live together, not to be together, and so both of them pursue relationships on the side. But as time passes, things change.
I must admit that I am kind of a sucker for bonding fics, and this one was incredibly intricate; the forced marriage woven into the secondary plot-line and Harry's "problem". I love watching the characters slowly come together in this one and get their happy ending, despite all the angst along the way.

Title: Changing of the Guard and sequel one-shot Venture

Rating: Hard R
Word Count: ~221,000
Content/Warnings: elements of prostitution, homophobia, cross-dressing (but not as a sexual kink), unusual jobs, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, secret identity, identity porn
Summary: Need a perfect stranger? Ask Metamorphosis. Harry Potter runs the business secretly and becomes whoever's needed for each occasion. He's not sure whether he should be more surprised, worried, or amused when Draco Malfoy comes to Metamorphosis and requests an actor who can play his boyfriend so that his parents will disown him. Yet Harry has even more dangerous choices after he creates Brian, Draco's "perfect" boyfriend. Draco doesn't know who Brian is, but he's trying to find out—and now so is Harry.
God, this story is just so friggin' intriguing and unique. And even though the premise sounds a bit crazy, it totally works. You can perfectly see Harry's reasoning and why he would choose this for himself. And I love me some confident Draco! Plus, it was really interesting having a story set in a anti-homosexual wizarding world, since so many fics go the tolerant route.

Title: Hurricane Series (3 Fics)

Pairings: Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron, Bill/Fleur
Rating: Hard R

Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, bonding!fic
Summary: After the war, many people decide to leave for uninhabited but magical worlds. On the eve of his immigration to a new world called Hurricane, accompanied by his friends and godson, Harry discovers that Draco Malfoy is also on the list of emigrants.
This almost seems like an AU, because Harry and the gang leave for an unknown magical world, but they all still have their canon past. The world is so interesting and I really love the idea of the wandless magic in this fic, very unique! Plus the connection between Draco and Harry is fantastic and the writing is fabulous as always.

Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, epilogue-compliant and AU, kid!fic, auror!harry, unusual jobs
Summary: One good turn deserves another. Apparently. Based loosely on "The Family Man"
I am in love with this story! Normally epilogue compliant stories aren't my favorite, but the "what-if?" aspect of this fic was so captivating. You get to go on this journey with Harry and see him figure out what his life could have been like, and then watch him come back, and start taking steps to make that life happen. I love, love, love the pet snakes and the crazy careers that just work, and the ballroom sex was hot!

Summary: Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places. // The sequel to 'Reparations'. When one door closes, another one opens... with a bit of a push. Life, love and complications.
Honestly these might by my favorite fics ever. The OC are three-dimensional without being overpowering, the dynamics between Harry and is friends are perfect, and Draco and Harry both are just so believable and wonderful together. I especially love this author's little details that just make this fic so real; the string, "yes", the weekly polyjuice pub crawl, and the talking cupboards. And the sex scenes are just delicious and emotional. Gahh, just so awesome!

Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!draco, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, auror training
Summary: It’s the first year of Auror training for Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and...Draco Malfoy, but with Hagrid, Snape’s second Pensieve, rogue Death Eaters, Auror classes, and someone trying to start a second war to worry about, Harry might not have the time to pay that much attention to Malfoy. At first, anyway. // As Harry and Draco head in to their second year of Auror training, they are resolved to try and balance the relationship between them with their personal difficulties. That might be a bit harder than they think when the difficulties include necromancy, Azkaban escapees, unicorn ghosts, the risen dead, a secret order of assassins...and the second war, guided by Nihil. // The war against Nihil enters its final stages, Harry and Draco train as partners, and they may actually survive to become effective Aurors. Maybe.
This trilogy is long! But so, so good! The plot is so detailed and intricate, and I love the interactions between Draco and Harry and Ron and Hermione. The auror training setting is different and fun.
