draco and harry didn’t tell anybody about their relationship. Nobody caught them mid-action. They found out because every time draco said “go suck a dick, potter” harry muttered under his breath, “already have.”
And every time harry told draco to “go fuck himself.” draco would mutter, “no need to, when you do it for me.”
Shortly after the War, Draco carried every day a new glass bottle in his bag. One sip before Charms, one sip for lunch, one sip for having an eye contact with Harry Potter in the hallways and not running away like a coward. Again. However, after a few weeks of acknowledging that no one resented him for his departure on the day of Voldemort’s fall, Draco only drank to chase the demons away, not the people. […]
The eight years boys sharing the same dormitory and trauma, forgiveness initiated tolerance as well as friendships. And this is how, Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter became drinking buddies, friends, best-friends, inseparable and […]
I am seeing Ginny hate on my dash and I would just like to say I strongly disagree and leave it at that. Stop hating on Ginny because she’s “in the way of my gay otp what a bitch they need to be together”. That’s fucking gross. Stop sexualizing the gay community and villainizing characters just because they’re “in the way”. It’s okay if you feel Ginny and Harry shouldn’t be together, trust me I feel they should’ve remained friends so I get it and if you’d like to discuss that more in depth I’d love to, but don’t hate her because she’s a women and you want the story to be “really really gay”. It’s just gross and I’m so tired of all this “omg I read soooo much gay fanfic im going to hell because of all this sin” culture. I’m sorry this rant was all over the place but it’s just gross and I’m over being nice about it.

Summary: Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he’s not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly.
Review: Ugh I have so much love for this fic! This was such an earnest and charming and refreshing story, with just the most amazing character development ever. Draco works for a charity after the war, but his job is on the line unless he can convince Harry Potter, who has become an absolute recluse after the war, to come to a charity function.
There’s so much that makes this story complete and wholesome, with all the amazing secondary characters, the little details here and there that give such life to this story, the exceedingly believable way Harry and Draco interact with each other and their post-war personalities.
I absolutely loved how stubborn Draco was, how he refused to take all the post-war prejudice thrown his way lying down and practically bullied his way into Harrys life - pure genius! And how Draco’s reasons to get Harry to listen to him and come out into public gradually shift from self serving to his just wanting Harry to progress was just the most wonderful thing to see from a readers perspective.
Gosh this was so tantalisingly slow burn, while still being so fulfilling. Towards the end all you want to do is fervently shake Harry and Draco and force them to smooch - thankfully we have a secondary character in the form of a charming old lady looking out for our interests in the story :D
