Title: Harry Potter and the Future He Doesn't Really Want, Thanks.
Author: faviconSeefin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 70,000 Approx.
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. :)
