Hello hello!!! I absolutely ADORE Draco figuring out muggle stuff!! He is so precious. Also this is a trope that I am always looking to read, so if anyone knows more, please let me know!!
Draco vs. Muggle Things (Drarry Recs)
The Miseducation of Draco Malfoy by @magpiefngrl (37.5K)- Zacharias Smith writes a tell-all about the D.A. Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy are not happy about it.
In my opinion this is the holy grail of Draco-in-the-muggle-world fics. It is PERFECT and it’s the fic that made me crave others like this! you can also find this fic on my Top 25 Drarry fics ever list—THAT’S how incredible and freaking hilarious and moving and beautiful and just… all around enjoyable it is!
The Morning After by @capiturecs and birdsofshore (5.5K)- This is what happens when you stick your wand in places where it really shouldn’t go.
Okay, this fic is HILARIOUS. Pure Draco vs. Harry’s Toaster comedy. From the perspective of both Draco and the toaster!!! Exactly what you want to read. Also there is some delicious smut in there too! <333
Moldova’s Magical Tea by @aibidil (32K)- Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, and—to everyone’s surprise—Draco Malfoy are opening a magical tea shop to revive wizarding tea culture and, hopefully, to bring the community together after the war. Harry, who is unemployed and trying to find his way in post-war society, wants to help his friends with their new business—but that means spending a lot of time around Malfoy. Featuring Muggle music from summer 2001, trips to the Muggle cinema, herbology and magical herbal infusions, and Draco trying to convince Harry that, while he’s still a snarky git, he’s no longer a bigot.
This fic is simply fabulous. I love tea, so I was sold on this fic from the summary alone, but I also fell in love with Harry and Draco and their forays into the muggle world! Including muggle music from 2001!!! Which… I LOVE THAT MUSIC.
100,000 Galleons by @bixgirl1 (28.5K)- When a weekend with Harry gets purchased at a Bachelor charity auction by Malfoy, he’s sure the trip is going to be filled with disaster.
And it is. It really is.
Just… maybe not in the ways he thought.
One of the boys buying a date with the other at an auction is one of my favorite tropes, and this is a brilliant example of why!!! This fic has Harry and Draco doing muggle extracurriculars on vacation, which in my opinion makes said activities twice as amazing. It includes an absolutely iconic scuba gear scene that I shall never forget so long as I live, and I’ll laugh every time I remember it!
Muggle ‘Drug Store Items’ by @l0vegl0wsinthedark (4.5K)- Malfoy’s interest is caught by a certain Muggle drug store item. (Hint: Flavoured Condoms)
This fic is absolutely hilarious. Draco is just so precious and clueless and excited and LOUD about all the flavored condoms, and MAN I had so much second-hand embarrassment! Poor Harry! But also Harry found it adorable and so did I— 3000% worth a bit of blushing ;D
P & T Muggle Adventures by VivacissimoVoce (44K)- Dean Thomas and Harry Potter start a leisure business for wizards that specializes in giving tours of muggle London. Everything goes well until they receive a booking neither one of them wants to take. Harry embarks upon what he suspects will be the worst trip of his life.
The great thing about this fic is that Harry introduces MalfoyS PLURAL to the muggle world! Can you think of a more entertaining potential recipe for disaster than Harry leading the Malfoy family around muggle London and having to keep them all in check???? Yeah, thought not.
Salt on the Western Wind by Saras_Girl (60.5K)- When the war isn’t quite as over as it first appears, a guilt-ridden Harry is sent to a mysterious safe-house. Among sandwiches, insomnia, and Mills & Boon, he discovers something quite unexpected.
I’m adding this to the list after a lovely anon reminded me of Draco’s amazing, slowly growing, and very sweet infatuation with Muggle things! And I’m glad it belongs here, because I always love a chance to repeat how completely wonderful Saras_Girl is, and this story!!! Man, it’s so lovely. Bonding and slow burn and forced proximity and a dog and EVERYTHING GOOD!!
