Prompt: # 123
Summary: When Voldemort came for Harry, Lily took a stand. This time, Voldemort was defeated. But not enough for the Potters. Leaving the Wizarding world behind them, Harry is raised a Muggle without any knowledge of the magic. Not of the real kind, anyway.

FIC: Road to Solace, by Aelys-Althea

Title: Road To Solace
Author: aelys_althea
Prompt: # 73
Summary: The first time was an accident. The second time, too - mostly. The third time was stretching the truth a little, but Harry was prepared to stretch just as much as he needed. The fourth time? Even he couldn't pretend anymore.
There were going to be changes after the war, changes heading into his eighth year. Harry just hadn't anticipated that one such change would involve assuming prime seating in someone else's lap.

Author's Notes: Thank you so much to the lovely mods of the Draco Tops Harry fest! I'm so happy to get the chance to partake this year - the last few years I haven't been able to have been such a regret - so I really hope you enjoy the story.
For bubblebathsophie - I have a very high suspicion that this wasn't the route that you were thinking of when suggesting this prompt, but the idea took root and a bit of a more sombre turn, and I wasn't able to shake it. I hope you like it anyway!

DTH FIC: The Partner, The Rival and The Very Big Case, by Oceaxe (NC-17)

Title: The Partner, The Rival and The Very Big Case
Author: oceaxe
Prompt: # 39
Summary: When Harry and Nott are paired up to go undercover as fake boyfriends, Draco is disappointed not to get the assignment. It's just professional jealousy that's making him feel so upset. Obviously. He's engaged to be married to Astoria, after all.
But when he walks in on Nott kissing Harry for 'practice' and has a wild magic outbreak, he starts to think that something else might be going on. Is Nott right? Is Draco a homophobe? Or is there... just possibly... another explanation?

Author's Notes: Written for this prompt:
Harry and Draco are Auror partners. Theo is an Auror as well. In an undercover mission, Harry and Theo are required to pose as a couple. Draco has to keep an eye out for the perpetrator but he can't concentrate with Theo and Harry being so...annoying (Read: Affectionate) Draco feels- he doesn't know what he feels but it's DEFINITELY not jealousy. (Yeah, right)

And based on this article about a Reddit thread.I deeply wish I'd been able to work in the quote, "Nothing says romance like graphic violence." Many, many thanks to amorette for the never-ending beta work (and for all the em-dashes) and to goldentruth813 for the extremely encouraging cheerreading and input!! <3 <3 <3

Author's Notes: This was a real joy to write. Prompt was ‘Single dad!Draco is Harry’s soft point. Slow build, all the cuteness. Draco being hard to get.’ Sadly rl became a bear for me and my beta and it meant that some slow build/hard to get detail I wanted to include got left out but I did try and do the prompt justice. I hope the prompter, lemmon-pie, is pleased with the effort.
Huge thanks to TV who was both alpha and beta for me. You’re the best!
Song lyrics totally belong to Richard Marx, my muggle guilty pleasure and all characters and such belong to JKR et al.<
