Summary: After a couple years spent avoiding Draco in the Auror Department, Harry gets assigned to work with Draco on one of his strange cases. They investigate the mysterious disappearances of a witch and wizard, but in their search for the missing persons they find a lot more than they were looking for.

There's such a lovely development in this story. As the summary says, Harry is assigned to work with Draco in one of Draco's very strange cases. This one is about mysterious disappearances from these magical woods. At first Draco doesn't make it easy for Harry, but Harry is really going to try, he knows Draco is the expert and respects that. It also doesn't hurt that he thinks Draco is gorgeous. :D

But really, they make a great team; Draco is a bit of a workaholic and Harry makes him pace himself. We get to see Draco's Animagus form (so wonderful!), see their attraction becoming undeniable, eventually all the unresolved sexual tension coming to a head and they admit how they feel, even if Draco still has his reservations, and all through this the case that is so interesting! Really awesome stuff, I'm telling you! :D

Summary: When Harry sits down with Malfoy, he's really only looking for a reprieve from the constant stares and whispers. (Mostly.) What he gets instead are a series of strange events that lead to a friendship that is something else, questions that nobody knows how to answer, and the realisation that the person that Harry doesn't know how to hate, anymore, seems to be the person who knows exactly what he needs. // A story in which everything is complicated. And yet, somehow, none of it is.
Content/Warning(s): D/s, under-negotiated kink, implied subspace, Veritaserum, life debts

This story is fantastic! If you haven't read it yet, GOoo! :D

It's an 8th Year fic, in which Harry's tired of all the attention he's been getting, plus he's been watching Draco, and in an unplanned move, this one day he goes to sit with Draco in the library.

Little by little this happens more and more often. But god, it's so much more than that. You see, there's something happening between Harry and Draco, there's this amazing sexual tension, but on top, there's the Life Debt between them and Harry's afraid that Draco is. . . receptive to his. . . advances because of the Life Debt, and they are sort of terrible to communicate properly, you see?

But still, they can't help themselves, even though their relationships is confusing and so intense, they just want each other. And god, it's just delicious. The way Draco reacts when Harry asks him to do something, the way he clearly feels when that happens and about Harry, and the way that makes Harry feel, it's so so good.

I believe I'm making a mess of this rec, but truly, you should read it now because it's fantastic and intense and super sexy. You're not going to regret it, mark my words! :D

This is such a gorgeous story. There's something sort of peaceful about it. It's a story about Harry coming back to England, as the summary says, and pretty soon we learn Harry and Draco were together before Harry left, and now that Harry's back, Draco's going to try, to try to make things work, because they were amazing together, fighting and fucking, but this time they should also talk. It's wonderful, there's so much want.

It's a beautiful reunion of two people who obviously still have feelings for each other.

Summary: “Don’t you think I would have gone to Pomfrey if I thought she could help me?”

“Then what can I do?”

“I nee—” Malfoy broke off with a soft grunt and a pained expression. He took a shaky breath and tried again, his voice wobbling. “Will you touch me, Potter?”


Draco is cursed to speak in questions. Well...Spelled, thanks to the stupidly improper archival practices of the fourth century. Harry Potter is there to save the day, but Draco isn’t going to give in to his help so easily. Fortunately, the method of saving might be more satisfactory than Draco expected this time.


Have you read this yet? This story is completely brilliant! So there's Draco who, in an interesting turn of events (and I really don't want to say anything about that because !!!!) is spelled to speak only in questions, but there's a catch, it's only in truthful questions. And it turns out that Harry is the only person who can help him in this predicament, which does not sit well with Draco because he sort of tired of Harry always saving him.

Harry in the meantime is barely coming to terms with him being, erm, interested (for not saying obsessed with) in Draco in a slightly different way than back in Sixth Year.

So now Draco has to ask for Harry's help (who is Most Willing to Help™) and he's only able to question his way into an explanation. It's all kinds of brilliant, this fic. And smoking hot, too!

This is such a wonderful, wonderful story! :D It's an AU, in which Draco befriends the Golden Trio in first year: back when Quirrel set the troll lose he goes to warn Hermione of it but instead he ends up trapped with her in the bathroom. Then the whole, "There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them" includes him. :)

And so we see them being friendly, a bit of how they are together, their interactions but most of all we see them in 8th Year, Post War, with Draco having all these feelings for Harry, and god, their friendship, along with Ron and Hermione's is truly brilliant. Seeing him insecure about coming out, more so about ever confessing his feelings for Harry. Trust me, this story will leave you with a big smile on your face. :D

This is an absolutely delicious story, a very loose retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and let me tell you, at one point Harry's wearing his red clock and carrying a basket (later with flowers) and it's basically the best thing ever. It'll all make sense, I promise! :D

It starts with Draco being in the forbidden forest, picking up Potions ingredients (he's doing his Potions fellowship at Hogwarts) and in comes Harry in search of some magic flowers. Of course Draco is also very interested in these magic flowers Harry's after. And that they are both super attracted to each other, well, that helps, too. Helps a lot, actually, so much UST!

Then – god, you should just read it because then Draco's obviously hiding something and obviously Harry's got to see what it is and then there's hung!Harry and Draco gets sneezed on by a flower and goes mad with lust and – yeah, it's crazy and amazing. :D

Not very easy for Harry, getting along with Draco, as Draco (alias The Dragon) is not exactly talkative, but you know, after a too close encounter with the Lestranges, Harry realises they have far more in common than he first assumed (yep, it's exactly what you're thinking! \o/). They have smoking hot sex. :D Several times.

This story is amazing! Just amazing. It's a Post War fic, in which Harry, in dire need of a break after the war, finds solace in Vernazza. He's been living there for a while; a happy, peaceful life, until this one day Draco – who is Head Auror by the way! – shows up and he's determined to persuade Harry to come back.

The characterisations are wonderful. We get to see Harry's life, his routine (he works at a Gelateria and swims naked every day in the ocean!!!!11!!!1) and he see Draco coming and knocking everything skew and being utterly charming and sexy while he does that. Not to mention, yeah, persuasive.

And oh my god, there's so much sexual tension between these two. It's pretty amazing, fun, witty and just wonderful.

His lips are shining and plump. “Can you imagine it as this much fun otherwise?” he asks rhetorically. // Harry and Draco don't know how to talk. So they do other things instead.

This is such a hot, intense fic. It's kind of non-linear because it starts with Harry and Draco fighting/fucking (more fucking than fighting at this point, really! :D). But we also get to see how the whole thing started.

Draco is a reporter for the Daily Snitch an he's been pestering Harry for a quote in the week of the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. Obviously they start up fighting, which ends with them actually fucking.

But it's just that, this thing they do, they fight and then they fuck, until maybe they don't need to always fight? It's amazing because they are the worst at trying to communicate and at the same time they are obviously so invested and—read it, it's hot, intense, and sweet, in a very Harry/Draco sort of way. :D

This story is fantastic. Seriously. It's incredibly touching and beautiful. As the summary says, Harry is injured during an Auror raid and now the life he loved, the life he enjoyed, the life he dreamt for himself is no longer possible, at least that's what he thinks.

He sinks in to a deep depression and Hermione, desperate to help, seeks Draco, who is now a Healer with also a Muggle degree who specialises in physiotherapy, and he's the best, so really, it is Harry's best and last chance.

Harry doesn't take this news -- that Draco is his new doctor and will be moving in for the duration of his treatment -- very well. Well, that's an understatement. But really, Draco is the best, and soon Harry's progress start to show and little by little they work together, toward maybe giving Harry his life back, to Harry finding himself again.

But of course isn't easy, because it's them, they have a whole history and they fall in love, which is, at the same time amazing and complicated.

It's truly a journey, not just Harry's physical recovery, but also realising he can be and is loved, that he doesn't have to do things alone, that people want to be there for him and it's OK to let them, to forgive them and most important to forgive himself. And Draco, falling in love with this amazing man and being scared of what it means, afraid of all the unethical reasons why their relationship might not work. It's gorgeous, really.

Summary: As far as potion accidents go in general, and deaging incidents go in particular, Draco knew this could have been so much worse. Harry only lost about ten years, and all his memories are still intact. But the sight of him looking as if he’s stepped straight out of Draco’s Hogwarts memories has dredged up a whole mess of complicated feelings Draco thought he’d buried years ago, and Draco really doesn’t know what to do with any of it.
Content/Warning(s): dub-con for drunken sex, deaging

This story is just so, so gorgeous. Harry and Draco are Auror partners and during a raid gone wrong Harry is splashed by an unknown potion and while at first it doesn't seem to have ill effects, after Draco goes to visit him to St Mungo's he's met with a much younger looking Harry Potter. An eighteen years old looking Harry Potter.

But you see, this story is so much more than Harry being de-aged, it's about how Draco feels, when he sees this younger-looking Harry, as his memories or personality hasn't been affected at all, all the feelings he's had for Harry for so many years are impossible to repress any longer.

And let me tell you, the characterisations are gorgeous. They are friends, good friends, as Auror partners they work amazingly well together, and oh my god, there's so much beautiful banter and teasing, subtle flirting and so many beautiful moments that just remind you how perfect they are together.

This is a beautiful written coming out story. This is about Harry, growing up hearing Uncle Vernon talking about gay people even worse than he talked about wizard really didn't prepare him to accept his own sexuality. And then there's Draco, who is openly gay and unapologetic, and they are sort of drawn to each other.

They go out this one time (after Draco 'by chance' – as in, Draco knew exactly what he was doing!!!! – was having coffee near Harry's place) to this bar, and he realises where Harry is coming from.

It's very dramatic, the way it's so hard for Harry to accept himself, he suffers and wants and is so confused. But it's beautiful, too, because Draco is there for him, helping being brave. And boy, they have all the sexual chemistry in the world! Really lovely story and it's illustrated by some really amazing art, too. :)

Summary: "Instead of laughing about it, Harry, you could use this experience to educate Malfoy in Muggle culture.”
“I have no wish to educate Malfoy in anything,” Harry said, although the thought of unleashing a confused and annoyed Malfoy in Muggle London sounded quite entertaining.
Or the one where Zacharias Smith writes a tell-all and Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy are assigned community service in Muggle London.

This story, let me tell you, is fantastic!

Zacharias Smith has written a tell-all book about Dumbledore's Army, and in it suggests that Harry and Draco, well, he suggests that Harry and Draco had have the hots for each other for ever. Draco is Most Displeased. So much that he leaves his sort of self-imposed insolation and goes looking for Zach and punches him in the face, basically.

Auror Harry is called to sort the public disorder but ends up punching Zach himself as well. And that's how both Harry and Draco end up assigned in community service in Muggle London. It's glorious! At first Draco is all stand-offish, you know, but they have to be there for three months so eventually they start talking (oh my god, Harry asks for advise on breaking up with someone he's causally seeing, you see) and soon Draco discovers Cosmopolitan and Coca Cola and he loves it, and they start going out, to the cinema and—well, you should just read it because it's fucking brilliant. :D

Summary: Voldemort is dead but the war is far from over. Draco, once again, is torn between protecting his family and doing what is right. Secret meetings, conflicting loyalties, and grey morals bring Harry and him together but it’s also what could threaten to tear them apart.
Content/Warning(s): I don't think there's Weasley/Ron bashing in this fic as such, but there's definitely an unflattering characterisation of Ron and George Weasley. Though they see the error in their ways. ^^

This fic is so good. It starts immediately after Voldemort's defeat. It's in this moment that Lucius makes the decision to hide, and in doing so he looks for other Death Eaters, and so he found a small cell that is still planning to remain active, and Draco is caught up in this, because he hates what this group stands for, but there's so little he can do for the other side, the "good" side , they are eager for revenge, so giving himself (or his family) up is just not an option. He's trapped with no good choices all over again. This time though, Harry found him, by pure chance, and so Draco starts being Harry's spy within this new group.

But you see, Harry has little power over the Ministry and everything they are doing for the sake of "peace." So Draco only talks to Harry and, god, there's so much grief and fear and anger, and in between they are knowing each other all over again, and it's confusing and amazing and at time the only good thing going on for the both of them.

I don't know if I'm making this story justice, but it's got great characterisations of Harry and Draco and is amazing and touching and dramatic. Very powerful.

Only, without Blaise in the picture.

It's totally brilliant because it's Harry and he's so obvious trying to be subtle. And then they finally reach an understanding that maybe they could, you know, have an arrangement. And things get even better. There's also them getting shitty assignments because Harry very badly wants Robards chair, which I know won't make any sense until you read it, but I had to mention it because it's just such a cool subplot! :D

Resigning himself to writing boring pieces about dull charity functions and various Auror missions, Draco is more than surprised when he follows Potter into Muggle London and discovers Potter’s secret.
Content/Warning(s): mentions of Harry/OMCs, past Draco/Blaise if you squint

Awesome fic, in which Draco, after years working at the Daily Prophet is finally given a serious assignment, which is, Potter Watch, basically. He doesn't see the humour in it, though Blaise clearly does:

“Look at you, fulfilling your teenage aspiration to follow Potter around with a running commentary,” Blaise teased, elbowing Draco sharply in the soft space under his ribs.


And so Draco starts following Harry and discovers something rather interesting. Basically Harry going to Muggle London and spending his night at gay nightclubs. In fact:

He spent the better part of an hour trying not to die of shock as he watched the wizarding world’s Golden Boy grinding his arse against the groin of the man he was dancing with.


Quite the revelation, yeah? :D But then Draco makes himself seen and one thing leads to another and soon Harry abandons the Muggle to spend his night with Draco (yes, like that!) and –well, it's rather awesome, with a bit of oblivious Draco and smitten Harry and Draco and sexy times!

This is a really amazing fic. The story starts the day Draco arrives to Ireland, to the house Harry's been living for the last few years along with other people, to do his Potion mastery. Harry does not react well. ^^ And he's even less thrilled to find out they are going to share a room. There's a lot of antagonism at the beginning, but eventually they start being able to be civil and then get to know each other. There's the physical attraction, which they are both fighting, but while all this is happening they are still dealing with trauma from the war, which makes it even more difficult for them to leave the past behind.

It's incredibly touching though, so many beautiful moment of them dealing with war trauma, slow burn with a lot of sexual tension (eventually resolved) and they working through their issues. Truly awesome. :)

It's written from Draco's POV. They aren't best friends exactly, they just work together on occasion, Harry as Auror and Draco as a lawyer, but there's always been something between them, and now that Harry's out, maybe it could truly be something.

I so love memory loss fic and this one is wonderful. :)

The story starts when Draco travels to California for business and sees a familiar face, one that has been missing from the Wizarding world since right after the Battle of Hogwarts. It's Harry, though he quickly realises Harry doesn't remember him, doesn't remember himself, doesn't even know he's a wizard and—well. Obviously Draco has to do something, and that something is basically kidnap him and bring him back to London. :D

Of course he calls Ron and Hermione (who are very wary about the whole thing to say the least) and the process of bringing Harry's memories back starts.

It's wonderful, to see Harry starting to remember little things, and while this happen all this sexual tension between Harry and Draco growing – since Harry is staying at Draco's place while he's remembering. But of course it's not easy once the press gets wind of Harry being back. ^^

Summary: It was addictive, the feeling of Draco Malfoy telling him things in a soft voice early in the morning. Harry felt like he was taming a wild animal, or petting a cat that hated everybody else. This train existed outside of time, that was the only explanation Harry could come up with as to why Malfoy was actually having a civil conversation with him right now.
Content/Warning(s): Modern Era

This story has such a cool premise. It's rather effing brilliant, actually. Right after the war Harry starts having these dreams, visions of the future. Not in the 'you shall kill a Dark Lord' sort of way, just very vivid dreams that are in fact showing him the future. Sometimes it's little things, other times involve some of his friends, often it's something it's going to happen to him, and if that's not weird enough, his latest dream showed him a vision of him and Draco Malfoy being a couple, obviously in love, living together, such a sweet vision, so naturally he wakes up freaking out and freaks some more to Luna (his roommate, or rather he's staying in her couch) and Neville (sleeping with Luna). :D

He doesn't want that future. It's not that he hates Draco. He sort of ~nothing Draco, but it's still Malfoy, so it's enough reason for him to be utterly unsettled, so of course he runs into Draco right after having that first dream. :D It's rather brilliant, I'm telling you. He keeps running into Draco all over the city—Draco's been sentenced to leave the wizarding world so he's living amongst Muggles and he's really trying and, you know, I'm going to share one of my favourite quotes:

He knew, then, that Malfoy had changed, or would change, or was in the process of changing.

Harry knew, with the same surety, that he wanted to be there for it. He wanted to watch as Malfoy unfolded himself and shook out the parts that were cruel and mean and hateful. He wanted to watch for the moment when Malfoy’s limbs and heart and brain and muscles moved in a way that wasn’t heavy with unease and anger. He wanted to see a thousand more easy smiles on Malfoy’s face, it wouldn’t even matter if he hadn’t put them there himself. He wanted to see Malfoy bloom with laughter.


Slow burn and amazing. :)

As the summary says, Harry and Draco, in their Eighth Year, get accidentally bonded, their magical cores get accidentally bonded (well, as accidentally as it can be when someone aims a Hex at Draco and Harry tries to Protego him and the Hex bonces back to him) and now they have to be in close proximity, but more so, they can feel what they other is feeling and even communicate through the bond.

It makes for a very awkward couple of days, but then they have all these ~feelings~ as they explore each other's cores, and—well, there's knowing each other better, sexual tension (pretty quickly turning into OMG sexual need, which soon turns into them having sex all the time because they can't keep their hands off each other), there's also some pretty awesome Magical Theory about cores and how it relates to the elements. But it's not so simple, because while Harry wants to face these feelings he has for Draco, Draco is not ready.

It's wonderful, really. Here's a quote about that lovely Magical Theory about cores:

The elements you draw your magic from indicate who you are, and each of these characteristics can be applied to your personalities as well. Earth, Mr. Potter, indicates that you are strong, that you care for those around you, and that you endure. The element of Fire in your personality and magic is purifying; it can create or destroy and speaks of a strong will and courage—no surprise there. Air, Mr. Malfoy, indicates that your primary use of magic is through intellect and creativity. The water speaks of an extreme adaptability to any circumstance.

Title: What Real Thing?

Word Count: 12,700 Approx.
Summary: They don’t cuddle, they don’t talk about their relationship (or lack thereof) and they certainly never fall asleep in each other’s arms.


This story is just so cool, man. :D It starts with Harry and Draco in Auror training and everybody being horrible to Draco, basically, so when the time comes Harry asks to be partnered with Draco and eventually this leads to obsession (heh!) and then to a sort of friends with benefits arrangement. Only it's obvious Harry wants more, but Draco is resisting! ^^ Harry's nothing if not persistent though, so eventually—well, you'll see! It's fun and romantic. :)

Summary: Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.

When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?


Ohh, this fic! :D It's slow-burn like you hear about it! But there's a lot, a lot of interactions between Harry and Draco because for starters, McGonagal, to promote inter-house unity decides to mix Gryffindor and Slytherin and Harry ends up, yep, a Slytherin, rooming with Draco and Blaise (Blaise is absolutely brilliant!), Greg (also so cool), and Nott (also—you know the characterisations in general in this fic are pretty damn fantastic). But more so, Harry's wildly popular. Imagine Harry's worst nightmare popularity-wise post war, and there's this reporter, in an attempt to write the story of his life decides to cast a soulmark spell on Harry and find our who is his, you know, destined soul-bound person. You know what I mean. ^^

Only the spells hits also Draco and Ron and Hermione and they all get their soul-mate's names written in their bodies. And let me tell you, Draco is so not very thrilled when the name that appears on his chest is Harry's. But wait! That's not all, Harry—poor dear Harry, he doesn't have a name written anywhere, which is pretty distressing because, doesn't Harry get to be happy and have a soulmate?

So then they try to find a counter-spell while Harry deals with not having a soulmark while falling in love with Draco, basically, only he's in total denial on that one. ;) It's so super!

Summary: What’s big and purple and smells like tea? Harry is about to find out.
Content/Warning(s): EWE plus Fred lives!, original characters, quite a good bit of fluff

Headlights in the Snow is Saras_girl's 2016 Advent, and it follows the 25 days leading to Christmas. It starts in George's stag party, when Harry's a little drunk and the whole group takes the Knight Bus and Harry's absolutely certain – or as certain as he can be, as he is a little drunk – that Draco is the one driving the bus. No one else seems to notice, but of course Harry does.

Obviously his curiosity gets the better of him and hails the bus to investigate further, and yes, it was Draco Malfoy driving the bus all right. :D And so Harry's in for an adventure, discovering what Draco has been up to, the strange and amazing routine he has with a wonderful (utterly wonderful) group of old ladies who have made the Knight Bus their home (not literally, but think of the bus as their daily social club meeting place, which is indeed what it is) and ultimately falling in love. It's a journey in more ways than one and absolutely lovely and magical. :)

Title: No Want of Motive
Author: [personal profile] oceaxe
Rating: NC 17
Word Count: 28,000 Approx.
Summary: Draco’s side business requires him to know the hidden motivations of those he’s dealing with. When a chance encounter with Potter gives him a fascinating glimpse into the boy hero’s motivations, he can’t help but try to exploit his new insight. Featuring flirting, friendship, fantasies, furious denial, half-hearted denial, loss of denial, and a surprising lack of puns.
Content/Warning(s): minor Harry/Ginny, mention of past Draco/others

Such a cool and awesome fic. It starts with Draco wanting to sell some questionable artifacts, but you see, first he wants to know what motivations people have to buy them, so they don't end up with a Dark Wizard-wannabe, so he get this Motive Monitor that tells him people motivations/intentions, and right after he gets it, yep, he runs into Harry. And of course he uses it on Harry, and quite surprised to see it points to 'sexual attraction'! He starts flirting with Harry, first to get a rise out of him, but you know, being attracted to Harry himself, it is a bit of a double-edged sword. :D

Anyway, Draco ends up in some trouble and Auror in training Harry is appointed to tail him, which obviously drives Harry (and Draco!) crazy. There's tons of UST and smoking hot scenes (maybe a hint to unwilling attraction there ftw!), and eventually they have to face this sexual attraction becoming more than just sexual. Super!

Summary: Harry never expected to spend eighth year listening to Draco Malfoy wanking.

This story is so, oh my god, so hot. I mean, it's a lot of wonderful things, but it's really damn hot, too. :D

Harry and Draco are back at Hogwarts for their Eighth Year, and as it turns, they have to share a room. And it would have been fine, but you know, people wank, men do it, but Draco in particular is particularly shameless about the whole thing. And why wouldn't he, you know? It's completely natural! LOL So Harry's stuck in there having to listen Draco wanking in the bed next to his and then, well, he can't help to react, can he?

And the next night Draco's at it again. Only soon listening turns to watching, which turns to—you know, more. ;) Of course there's a lot more than that going on! Though the wanking is pretty effing hot. But yes, there's getting to know each other, tentatively becoming more than just nightly wanks and misunderstandings and everything you love in a story. God. So good!!!!

Title: The Three Golden Tears

Rating: G
Word Count: 13,800 approx.
Summary: Draco is the Queen's Appointed Unicorn Caretaker in the Forest of Dean, and is therefore obligated to take care of every living thing in the forest. That also means cursed Saviours...right?
Content/Warning(s): Brief description of animal death,

This is just utterly lovely. As the summary says, Draco's appointed Unicorn Caretaker in the Forest of Dean, and this one day a (completely delightful!) unicorn named Bob fetches Draco because there's someone hurt in the forest. That person is Harry, who has been cursed blind, and more so, he doesn't remember who he is, who his friends are, and while it's clear he knows he's been cursed, his curse also stop him from even explaining that in the first place.

Draco takes him in, he tends his wounds (Draco is a vet! <3) as best he can, and Harry, not knowing who he is, asks to stay with Draco until he's more sure of himself, figure out some things out. Harry has been missing, Draco knows this, and tells Harry as much, but Harry insists on staying for a while. And in that time they start knowing each other, truly getting to know each other, and it's just lovely and magical. It doesn't come without a bit of complications, and there's also the curse to solve, but happy ending is happy. :)

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 super interesting! It's about how Muggles have been contaminating the waters and basically destroying the Merepeople's habitat.

Harry and Draco come into the picture because, both, blackmailed by the Miniter for Magic, are asked to go to USA to fix the problem. Draco is a Potions Master and Harry is a field chemist who especialices in water.

In the meantime we get to learn a few things about Harry and Draco. A) Harry and Draco had been friendly for quite a while back home. Harry often visiting Draco at Hogwarts where he teaches Potions, thing that stopped once Harry realised he had feelings for Draco, and B) That, related to A, Harry's been pining for Draco for years, basically. :D

The plot is very clever, we get to see everything they do to save the Mers (Harry and Draco each brought a team with them), and try to discover why the Minister wanted them (Harry & Draco) out of the picture back home, there are also some pretty brilliant interaction between Harry and Draco, the team, Draco's American cousin (who is super, too!).
