i love to imagine Draco, Hermione and Harry working together at the ministry.
I imagine it’s a lot of Draco giving a sneer to anyone that rolls their eyes during any of Hermione’s speeches.
Harry too but mostly with him if he looks at you disapprovingly they straighten up, i mean he defeated the dark lord; dont want to look like a douche and insult one of his closest friends.
And a lot of Hermione filtering through their assignments to make sure Harry doesn’t get assigned anything too dangerous, and Draco doesn’t get anything to do with dark magic (for his mental stability).
I think that Harry and Draco’s friendship definately takes time. But they do start with having an understanding concerning Hermione.
It’s mostly just them warning the other when Hermione is pissed at them.
“Oi Malfoy, fair warning Hermione was looking for you.”
“Oh for merlin’s sake what did i do now? Did she say why?”
“No, just that she wanted to talk to you.”
“Great thanks mate, big help you are Potter.”
“Hey, im just relieved it’s not me this time.”
“You’re a little shit, you are lightning.”
And after a couple hours of Draco avoiding she (of course) finds him
“Ah, Granger. I have been looking for you everywhere. Have you been avoiding me? Potter had said you were looking for me earlier.”
“Malfoy you’re so full of shite, i saw you duck into that empty conference room when i waved at you in the commons.”
“Oh, were you down there too? Wow you know i just had such a busy morning.”
“You are so frustrating!” and she’d turn and start to walk away
“Wait, didn’t you need something?”
And she’d turn around looking very annoyed and march over to him and smash her lips onto his completely throwing him off guard.
“I just wanted to know what it would be like” and she would smile at the stupid surprised look on his face and leave him pink lipped and watching her walk away.
