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.

---

My thoughts: Reading this, I remembered exactly why I fell in love with this fandom. I remembered why I spent sleeppless nights reading stories after stories right after I first stumbled upon the pairing. It is by far one of the best fics I've read in a while. It's a wonderfully written eight year story with a slow building romance. That's really all I need to say.

After the war, Harry left most of the Wizarding world behind and built a new life for himself in the Channel Islands. He wanted a nice, quiet job where he could make people happy and listen to their stories. He opened a bakery and is happy with his life. Draco is a fiction author who writes under a penname, and he's currently suffering from writer's block. His agent suggests he try writing in a new environment and rents a cottage in the Channel Islands for him for the summer.

------

My thoughts: This is such a gorgeous story. The setting, in the Channel Island, is charming. The descriptions are so vivid that you can actually picture Guernsey's streets. The slow building romance is also quite endearing. Mistaken identities were a nice bonus.

Title : Consequences of Truth

Professor Draco Malfoy is not best pleased to have a Potter Sort into his House. But he forges a bond with Albus over Potions, and as Draco becomes unwillingly entangled in Potter family secrets and lies, he discovers that more than truth is at stake.

------

My thoughts: This is an extremely compelling story, featuring Draco as an Hogwart's teacher. It starts with Albus entering Hogwarts and follows their lives from there. They develop feelings for each other, over the years. Nothing is rushed, just the way I like it. Albus' characterization is quite unusual - a bit surprising at first - but I gradually fell in love with him over the course of the story.

Following a terrible crime and four-and-a-half years in Azkaban, Draco Malfoy is granted early release and is placed on license with an innovative new programme through the Auror Office of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Draco finds he doesn't know which is worse: Azkaban, or being under the legal supervision of Harry Potter. Even the most sacrosanct of boundaries can be breached.

------

My thoughts: A powerful introspective story. It is a fascinating journey into the mind of a reformed criminal. It is relatively dark, but it's also full of hope.

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 worst, most anti-social, rude, and annoying Auror ever to walk the halls of the Ministry. Or perhaps he is only that way around Harry…

------

My thoughts: Harry coming to Draco's rescue - both on a mission and in the office - is always rewarding. It particularly is in this complex, yet enticing story. This fic is filled with aurors chasing Dementors around, well-thought magical theories, falcons and three dimensional original characters.

Harry and Draco have been falling into bed on and off again since the last election five years ago, much to the amusement--and financial gain--of their circle of friends. But when Harry agrees to work with Draco to put Kingsley Shacklebolt into the Minister's office, they can't work side-by-side again every day and sleep together; that would be courting disaster. Wouldn't it?

------

My thoughts : I had intended to read only a few scenes before going to bed, but somehow i ended up reading until 3am. I simply couldn't put this fic down. I had to see if Harry and Draco would finally get their act together and I went through quite an emotional journey to find out. As an added bonus, the fic's political setting was brilliant.

EWE - This story begins where Deathly Hallows ends, but is not compliant with the epilogue. Immediately after defeating Voldemort, Harry begins to have strange dreams, dreams that pull him once more into the realm of the newly dead. Is this because he does not fear Death, or could it be that as the owner of all of the Deathly Hallows, he is now the Master of Death? But when he dreams of Narcissa Malfoy, his life suddenly goes in a much different direction than the one he'd always imagined.

------

My thoughts : This was absolutely lovely. It was slow, beautiful, heartbreaking and everything I wish for in a story. It only took a few sentences, and I was hooked. It is certainly one of the highlights of the hd-canon-fest.

The theme of the story (death), while not being an easy subject, was captivating and quite interesting. I loved how it slowly brought Harry and Draco together.  While I probably wouldn’t have minded reading more, I thought the ending was perfect.
