Author's Notes: I want to thank my plethora of alphas and betas who read and fixed random sections in this fic over the course of the last two months. They include, but are not limited to: josephinestone, [tumblr.com profile] ineharnia, [archiveofourown.org profile] ana_iliad and especially: [archiveofourown.org profile] Elle Gray, who helped with the title and the summary and did an amazing beta job on one of the chapters. Also, thanks to vaysh for encouraging me to finish this fic on time! I hope you guys like it.
This story was supposed to be very simple. Harry having great sex and then I decided to give them interesting jobs and throw in some adulting.
