In 1974, four years after publishing his first children’s book about the close friendship between Frog and Toad, the author and illustratorArnold Lobeltold his family he was gay. “I think ‘Frog and Toad’ really was the beginning of him coming out,” says his daughter, Adrianne.

19 years ago, something happened between Harry Potter
and Draco Malfoy - but the only one who remembers is Draco himself. He
plans to carry the secret to his grave, but his careful plan is soon
turned on its head. It’s bad enough that Draco is returning to Hogwarts
as a professor, so soon after his divorce, even worse that his son
Scorpius has befriended fellow first-year, Albus Potter. But when he
realizes that Harry Potter, too, has returned to Hogwarts, newly-single,
Draco fears for his sanity.
Meanwhile, first-years Albus and
Scorpius navigate friendship, classes, and getting their idiot fathers
together. They are joined by their mothers, Astoria and Ginny, retiring
professor Minerva McGonagall, newly-minted professor Teddy Lupin,
Headmaster Neville Longbottom, Blaise Zabini, Lawyers Pansy Parkinson
and Hermione Granger, a handful of scheming first-years, and the
inimitable Luna Lovegood.
Eighth year at Hogwarts is going to be boring. That’s what Draco
Malfoy thinks when the Wizengamot makes attendance a condition of his
pardon. After all, after letting Death Eaters into the school, failing
to kill his headmaster, and being forced to serve a homicidal madman,
how could finishing up his education *possibly* be interesting?
a coveted Transfigurations advanced study position, Minerva
Mcgonagall’s surprising fondness for him, Thestrals, tea with Hagrid,
tutoring Harry Potter, Granger and Weasley’s excessive PDA, and the
perplexing nature of sleight-of-hand double-dates with Harry, Luna, and
Ginny. And then, of course, there’s righteously indignant (if
misinformed) Weasley, Draco’s own insecurities and flair for dramatics,
and a long-suffering Kingsley Shacklebolt.
When Malfoy Manor burns, the wizarding world is unmoved. Enter Harry
Potter, whose new hobby is finding stray survivors and ‘rescuing’ them.
He whisks the Malfoys off to 12 Grimmauld Place, which has become a
landing spot for the displaced and unwanted. He integrates them into his
strange, somewhat dysfunctional “family” -and Draco wouldn’t have it
any other way. LOTS OF FLUFF. EWE
Sev and Luna battles of wits! Muggle board games! Quidditch at the Burrow! Lucius Malfoy baking cookies! and more! (Major unexpected scene-stealing by Sev and Luna in later chapters)
2 years later, Yuri Plisetsky has a crush on his best friend that he’s
determined to ignore. Mila is determined to meddle. Yuri overhears a
conversation between Mila and Beka that leaves him feeling betrayed.
Before he can confront them, he has to leave to nurse his sick Grandpa
and his own broken heart. When Beka shows up at Grandpa’s door, Yuri
doesn’t know what to think. Pining with a happy ending.
The summer before 7th year, a restless Harry Potter is captured and
taken to Malfoy Manor. Together, he and Draco Malfoy escape to Grimmauld
place, where they are instructed to stay put while the Order takes care
of more urgent business. Left out of the Horcrux hunt, they hatch their
own plans to defeat Voldemort. Kreacher and the sentient Black House
play a pivotal role, joined by a reluctant Snape and all the usual
suspects. With the help of their friends, Harry and Draco learn to
tolerate one another, defeat Voldemort, and even death itself. In this
alternate Battle of Hogwarts, pranks and scheming carry the day.
