Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for eighth year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.

He Was He and I Was Bunny by bryoneybrynn (37k)  
The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?

Unhook the Stars by jad (62k)  
“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.

It took a very special goat to scale Draco’s lonely heart. Narcissa POV.

Two Hearts That Bleat As One by dracogotgame (5k)
After the war, Draco was prepared to spend the rest of his days alone and miserable. Then that damned goat showed up. This is a remix of icmezzo’s brilliant Love Lies Bleating

The Wolf Pack by dracogotgame (13k)
Nobody said achieving your animagus form was easy. Draco could handle being a wolf pup for a while, right? How bad could it be?

The Owl Who Came for Christmas by dracogotgame (17k)
Draco has a debt to pay off, no matter what Potter thinks. And he has a Very Good Idea to go along with it. Things don’t go as planned.

Blind Faith by SunseticMonster (21k)
Don’t think of it as losing your sight. Think of it as gaining an Animagus who never quite learned the meaning of the word ‘boundaries’.

Change by sara_holmes (7k)
“Draco meets Harry’s eyes, and Harry has a brief moment to wonder how this suddenly got so serious…”

The Haumiaroa Magical Society for the Conservation of Indigenous Wildlife by musamihi (15k)
Harry escapes to New Zealand in search of privacy and relaxation, only to find himself caring for an injured (and ungrateful) kiwi chick. After releasing the bird into the wild, he’s more than a little surprised to find it waiting for him when he arrives in Peru for the second part of his vacation – and to discover that it can spell. Poorly.

Catfished by Saras_Girl (32k)
Draco is in deep water, Harry can see straight through him, and that’s not even the full scale of the problem.

In Trance by thrilladdict (18k)
Harry turns into a cat and is looked after by Draco Malfoy. After a soul journey and much insanity, Harry finds himself completely smitten with the git.

The Kneazle Who Came For Christmas by enchanted_jae (7k)
Banished from his home during the holiday season with only his wand and the clothes he’s wearing, Draco has no choice but to take on his Animagus form and hope someone will take him in.

Kitty, Kitty by Phoenixstrike (34k)
When Harry’s Auror partner is hit with a mystery spell, Harry finds himself in charge of looking after an adorable, if somewhat petulant, cat. 

Silver and Gold by roma_fics (73k)
A small, torn piece of parchment reached Harry’s hands six months before the end of the war. All it said was, “Save the Wolf.” The day after the defeat of Voldemort, Harry makes good on his promise to the wizard who sent the note.

In Need of a Proper Hug by Faith Wood (2k)
Draco rescues a poor, poor koala, which won’t stop hugging him. Inspired by this pic of DanRad hugging Jack Huston aka Jack Kerouac in Kill Your Darlings, and this comment: “I’ve decided that he is part koala, and I think you should write a story where Harry becomes an Animagus, turns into a koala, and clings constantly to Draco.” Beware of cute. Bring a toothbrush.

Draco finds an ickle wounded birdy in the forest…

Paws of Fury by Veritas03 (87k)
“Bellow, bluster… your rage is insignificant. No more than the mewing of a kitten. Do not be afraid. He will save you. Calm you. Love you.”
Harry has a furry little problem – but Draco’s scent soothes the savage beastie. Will Draco be able to save him when Harry’s world begins to crumble? Bubbles, blowjobs, mystery – and something rotten in the place of Grimmauld. 

My Life As A Butterfly by digthewriter (22k)
At the age of seventeen, Harry finds himself falling in love with a detached Draco Malfoy. Through a series of unfortunate miscommunications and gossip, he had a bad falling out (of love), too. Now, years later, can Harry make amends about a misunderstanding? Would Draco forgive him?

Hissy Fit by dysonrules (28k)
Harry is an under-utilized Auror and Draco is an auditor for Gringotts. He lives to torment the Ministry and, of course, Harry Potter. He is also a Registered Animagus.

Take the Air by Cheryl Dyson (52k)
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 most annoying Auror ever to walk the halls of the Ministry.

Endangered Familiar by ravenpan (8k)
After the war, all he wanted was some peace and quiet. What he got, was a penguin that brought the exact opposite.

Odd Bunny by enchanted_jae (5k)
When Malfoy gets stuck, mid-transformation, as a partial bunny with ears and tail, Harry becomes obsessed with his partner’s tail.

Running Up That Hill by hazel_wand (12k)
Harry had spent the first years after the war waiting and trying to fall in love with Ginny and had been unable to. It had turned out all right, sort of. Ginny had settled down with the Harpies’ Seeker and Harry, well, Harry had Draco. Sometimes.

Where’s Granger When You Need Her? by playout (11k)
Hogwarts’ Potions Master is working on an experimental brew. He really should know better than to turn his back on an unstable potion. Now if only there were someone in the castle who could help…

The Toad King by IvvyMoon (23k)
Draco’s life is turned upside down by the appearance of a cursed toad.

'I will retrieve your ball, but in return you must bring me into the castle and care for me. You must feed me from your plate, protect me from harm, and let me sleep on your pillow.’

Crup-tion of the Not-So-Innocent by calanthe (17k)
If you thought that befriending Draco Malfoy would be easier than defeating the Dark Lord you’d be wrong. Harry Potter has to grow another pair of legs and a forked tail before he can break down the frosty barrier blocking the way into Malfoy’s heart (and his underpants).

Set Me Free by makochanupdates (18k)
Draco has finally completed his Animagus transformation. Too bad he hasn’t figured out how to transform back. In comes Harry to the rescue, happy to help before he finds out who it is. After that, well, Draco has some explaining to do!

@fangirl383 you asked me for this ages ago as well x
