Somewhere in Wiltshire, the day Harry Potter left Hogwarts forever...

Lucius Malfoy, scion of the Malfoy Family Line and a true Pure-blood, found himself in a quandary. He had not been one of the lucky ones at His Master's current residence when The Daily Prophet had arrived, but he had been at his own family manor when Draco rushed into his study, the aforementioned paper clutched tightly in a white-knuckled grip. Lucius had never seen his son so flustered.

Summary: There are a lot of strange rumours floating around about Potter and Malfoy. Rated T for swearing and excessive references to cherries.

Rating: T


My observations: You know how it works; Person A tells Person B a secret then Person B tells Person C only Person B gets the words mixed up and by the time the secret reaches Person Z, the whole story has changed. Yeah, this is one of those. And it's funny. :-)

One Year Later...

At first, the high crumbling walls guarding a seemingly old castle located on the outskirts of the city of Great Barrington looked like any other rundown building...but if one knew where to look, the view behind the walls was much better than the view from the street.

Chapter 2


Exactly four days later, the two men stepped off of a plane into bright, warm sunshine, green, lush palm trees, gorgeous blue ocean water...and scantily clad women every time they turned their heads. Lennox eyed them over the top of his sunglasses, a quiet wolf-whistle easing past his lips. Marcus was doing some staring of his own.

"Why are we living in Florida again?" Lennox asked his friend. Marcus, who had been staring a leggy brunette across the terminal, shook his head.

Chapter 1


Mykala was in her office, going over some numbers when her phone rang once. She absently picked up the receiver, cradling it between ear and shoulder.

"Yes?"

"Your brother is on line 2." came her assistance voice.

"Thank you." she smiled as she quickly switched lines. "Marcus." she greeted, happy to have the chance to speak to her brother.

"Hey sis!" came his voice clearly as if he wasn't thousands of miles away in Florida. "Got your message. What's up?"

"Can't a sister just want to say 'hi'?" she laughed, charmed by his exuberance.

Title: Angel's Curse
Author: Lady B
Summary: It was an unwritten rule not to reveal the magical world to the muggle world. Someone has broken that rule and pays the consequences.
Characters: Harry Potter vs Criss Angel
Rating: PG13
Author Note: Someone, can't remember who it was, posted this as a status on their Facebook: "Dear Criss Angel, You're blowing our cover in front of the muggles. Sincerely, Harry Potter"

As the so-called magician Criss Angel performed some slight of hand trick, he was unaware of the wand pointed directly at him from the shadows of the balcony above. The technicians off-stage waited for their cue to fire off the laser show at the end of the trick. Criss tapped the side of his wrist twice, the signal for the techs to launch the lights. A rainbow of colors surrounded Criss and a particularly bright green struck him dead center of his chest. Criss collapsed to the ground and at first the audience thought it was part of the trick. When he did not move for another ten minutes, someone was sent to check on him. When the paramedics were brought in, then and only then did panic reign supreme. As people scrambled toward the stage, no one noticed the dark haired, green-eyed man as he made his way out of the building, nor did they notice the small slip of paper that had fallen from Criss pocket that he had shoved there seconds before he was scheduled to be on stage...

"Dear Criss Angel, You're blowing our cover in front of the muggles. Sincerely, Harry Potter"

The note was never discovered as it had been swept away by the cleaning staff.

The end.

The twelfth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: singing Christmas carols...

Harry sat between Draco and Severus at the Royal Opera House in London, watching the Vienna Boys Choir perform their annual Christmas concert. He was enchanted with the music, letting it fill his heart with Christmas joy and love. He raised the hand on his left, kissing Severus's palm. Severus gifted him with a warm smile and a whispered "I love you."

Harry turned to look at Draco, stunned by what he saw on his face. Draco had tears streaming down his cheeks and his eyes were wide in awe. Harry gently touched his arm and Draco looked at him.

"I love you, Harry." Draco whispered. Harry's own eyes widened. It was the first time he could recall since their bonding that Draco had ever said those words.

The smile those three words placed on Harry's face, would live in Draco's memory forever.

"I love you, too, Draco. Merry Christmas." Harry smiled, leaning forward to kiss him.

The eleventh thing at Christmas, that's such a pain to me: stale TV specials...

"You know Dasher...and Dancer...and Prancer...and Vixen..." Draco stared at the television screen, trying his damnedest to stop his eye from twitching. Harry had fallen in love with the movie "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" some years before and had been watching it every year since.

His hand twitched toward the remote, wondering if he could get away with changing the channel. Then Harry snuggled closer, nuzzling his nose in the warmth of Draco's neck, and stilled in his sleep with a small sigh. Draco gave him a tender smile and moved his hand away from the remote. Across the room, Severus caught his eye and smiled warmly.

I understand now. Draco murmured in his mind.

Good. Severus nodded.

The tenth thing at Christmas, that's such a pain to me: "Batteries not included!"

Such an innocuous phrase. Draco sighed, staring at the three words at the bottom of the box.

He knew what it meant of course.

Why did I let Severus talk me into buying this thing?

"Because you asked me what Harry never had as a child and I told you one of those hand held electronic games teenage muggle boys are so fond of. Not my fault you forgot batteries for it." Severus replied, guessing Draco's thoughts.

"I don't supposed you would know if any are around here?" Draco asked, staring at all the open bags and wrapping paper covering every surface of their bedroom.

"Accio triple a batteries!" Severus grinned, watching as one of the smaller bags flew into his hand.

"Thank you, Severus." Draco said, his heart melting a little.

Severus offered Draco one of his rare smiles, "You're welcome."

Draco went back to his wrapping.

He's finally starting to get it. Severus nodded to himself.

The ninth thing at Christmas, that's such a pain to me: finding parking spaces...

Harry sat in the back of the sleek silver Jag, struggling not to laugh as Draco moved the car up and down the parking lot of the shopping center. Draco had insisted on going Christmas shopping the muggle way and Harry didn't argue with him, allowing this small concession for the holidays.

Draco didn't count on having to fight people for an empty spot.

"There's one." Severus pointed out, watching as a car pulled out. Draco sighed with relief, but the minute he started to turn in, a smaller, faster car beat him to it. The man got out and looked a Draco with a rueful grin.

"Sorry, buddy! Better luck next year!" the man called out before jogging into the building. Harry felt the magic in the air and decided to, just this once, let Draco have his way. It was only fair, after all he had put up with over the last week.

Before Severus could blink, Draco had drawn his wand and levitated the man's car to the roof of the mall, obliviating any muggles who witnessed the strange phenomenon. Smirking at his lovers, he pulled into the empty slot.

"Feel better now?" Severus asked.

"Much." Draco smiled, opening the car door, "Let's go shopping!"

The eighth thing at Christmas, that's such a pain to me: I WANT A TRANSFORMER FOR CHRISTMAS!

For the tenth time this day, Draco wondered how he let Harry and Severus talk him into this ridiculous farce.

Oh yeah! Harry gave me his sad-eyed, kicked puppy look, and Severus threatened to withhold sex...for a month!

"Smile...Santa!" Harry hissed between his teeth as the next child in line moved to sit on "Santa" Draco's lap. Draco resisted the urge to growl and turned a bright smile on the blonde, blue-eyed boy in his lap.

"And what do you want for Christmas, little boy? (1)" Draco/Santa asked. The little boy looked at him with wide unblinking eyes for the longest time. Just when Draco was about to send the child on his way, he came back to reality with a blink.

"I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!" the boy exclaimed in one breath. Draco stared at him, shocked for a moment, before an absurd thought came to him.

"You'll shoot your eye out, kid! Merry Christmas!" And he pushed the little menace off his lap.

"Draco!" Harry growled.

"Don't tell me you didn't think of it either."

"I did, but still -"

"I will not contribute to the delinquency of a minor, no matter how long Severus holds back sex." Draco whispered. Harry couldn't help but chuckle as he drew forward the next child.

"I WANT A TRANSFORMER FOR CHRISTMAS!!" the kid shouted directly in Draco's ear. Draco looked at Harry, whose face was bright red with suppressed laughter.

"You. Owe. Me." Draco growled.

The seventh thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: The Salvation Army.

"And just why are we doing this again?" Draco wondered as he skirted around dozens of boxes that had been stacked in their attic. Harry blew dust off one such box and sneezed.

"Because we don't need any of this stuff anymore." Severus replied, handing Harry a handkerchief.

"But it's my stuff, why should I give it to some dirty little orphan who probably won't take care of it properly?" Draco scowled. Harry looked up at him sharply, pain in his eyes.

"I'm one of those 'dirty little orphans', Draco. I can't believe you just said that." Harry whispered, hurt.

"Harry-" But Harry brushed by him, leaving him and Severus alone in the attic.

"After all that Harry has been through, you say the one thing guaranteed to hurt him the most. I cannot believe you, Draco." Severus said, disappointment coloring his tone.

"I didn't mean it, you know that."

"Then you also know why this charity function is important to Harry!" Severus snapped.

"I suppose you're mad at me, too." Draco sighed. Severus sat down next to Draco on the dusty floor and pulled him close.

"I'm not mad at you. I'm mad over the fact that after all we've been through to be together, all the battles we've fought, you still can't let your heart go."

"Someone once told me I don't have a heart." Draco stated.

"Do you love me?" Severus wondered. Draco looked at him, startled.

"Of course I do."

"Do you love Harry?"

"Yes."

"How do you know, Draco?" Severus asked. Draco stared at him, unsure how to answer. Severus saw this in his eyes and nodded. He got to his feet, dusting himself off. "When you know the answer, only then will your heart decide." Severus turned and left the room.

The fifth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: Five months of bills!

Draco stared at the roll of parchment that seemed to stretch from one end of the house to another.

"What's this, then?" he wondered, proud of the fact that his voice was calm.

"A list of things I bought for the orphanages and Hogwarts." Harry told him, checking something on the parchment to the items in the large box on the floor.

"And what, exactly, did you buy for the little tykes?"

"Clothes, toys, a couple of Christmas trees, lights, stockings, four large Christmas hams..." As Harry rattled off his extremely large list, Draco clenched his fist at his sides and counted backward from seven million...in Swahili.

An hour later...

"...new cauldrons, potions supplies, new Quidditch gear, brooms, new tables for the Great Hall, and dinnerware." Harry finished, "You're angry."

Draco let out a slow steady breath, "I'm not angry. I'm just wondering why you felt the need to buy it all at once."

"Because it's Christmas and I wanted to. I never had a lot when I was younger and now that I have so much, I want to give back to the very people who accepted me, made me feel like I belonged here."

"Sounds like a good reason to me." Severus nodded.

"You okay with this?" Harry wondered. Draco saw the saddened look in his lover's eyes and felt his heart melt. He smiled and pulled Harry into his arms.

"It's fine, Harry."

"Thanks, love." Harry whispered in his ear.

The sixth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: facing the in-laws...

Draco bit back the words that wanted to escape when he stepped out of the floo. All he could see was a room full of red hair and freckles. One of the twins (and it galled him to no end he still couldn't tell them apart after all these years) instantly latched on to his leg and wouldn't let go.

"Merry Christmas, Uncle Draco." the little ball of energy smiled up at him.

In for a knut... "Merry Christmas, Charity." Draco replied. The 6-year old girl clinging to his leg smiled widely at him, revealing two missing teeth.

"You remembered my name this time!" He bent down and pulled the littlest Weasley into his arms.

"Well so I did. And where is your sister?"

"Serenity took Uncle Harry into the back to show him her new broom. Grandma Molly said we could try them out tomorrow."

"Draco! You made it!" exclaimed Molly, coming into the kitchen. She took Charity from him and shooed her into the living room before taking Draco's things and shoving a glass of eggnog into his hands. He set it down quickly when she wasn't looking and waded his way through the sea of Red to join his partners near the warm fire beside the Christmas tree.

This may be the best Christmas yet, if I'm starting to tolerate The Weasleys. Draco thought to himself as he pulled Harry into his arms. Harry smiled at him and rested his head on Draco's shoulder as the soft sounds of a Christmas melody filtered from the wireless.

The third thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: Hangovers...

"Draco, you need to get up. You'll be late for work." a voice whispered in his ear. Draco groaned and turned his head toward the speaker, regretting it not a moment later when a herd of dragons began doing the Can-Can in his head.

"Am I dead?" he moaned.

"No, but you should be after all that eggnog you drank last night. Didn't I warn you George always spikes it with vodka?" Draco cracked open an eye and stared at Harry and Severus, both of whom had amused smirks on their faces.

"Just kill me," Draco told them, "I could use a Hangover potion right now."

"Hermione took the last of it for Ron and I haven't had a chance to brew more. You'll have to cure it the muggle way." Severus told him smugly. Draco looked at him, stunned, as Harry set a large glass on the bedside table.

"Tomato juice and hot sauce. Will definitely cure what ails you. Who wants steak and eggs?" Harry asked. Draco turned green and bolted for the bathroom.

The fourth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: Sending Christmas Cards...

"Oh this is beyond ridiculous!" Draco exclaimed, staring at the pile of cards covering every available surface of their living room.

"You promised you'd help me." Harry pouted.

"I promised to help you send Christmas cards to a few select people! Not the whole bloody wizarding community!"

"There are muggle ones here as well." Severus stated from his desk where he was tackling a stack of cards from former Hogwarts staff and students.

Harry scowled at him, "Fine, if you aren't going to help you can sleep in the guest room tonight."

After a moment of silence, Draco shuffled over to the chair across the desk that Harry was using and picked up an unsealed envelope.

"Can I at least use magic?"

"No." Harry told him, "Get licking."

"I'd rather be licking anything but envelopes right now." Draco muttered, thinking he hadn't been heard.

"That can be arranged. I believe our former Minister Fudge needs his arse shined." Severus stated, getting angry on Harry's behalf. Severus was getting sick of Draco's general whining and upsetting Harry. Draco's face flushed red and he silently began licking envelopes.

Hours later...

"Hear that, Harry?" Severus asked. Harry looked up at him.

"What's that?"

"Blessed silence." Severus smiled, pointedly looking at Draco. Draco scowled at them both.

"I warned you not to lick your lips after all those envelopes. Not my fault your lips glued shut." Harry laughed. Draco turned his glare up another notch, which had no effect on Harry. Harry waved his wand to clean Draco's face and proceeded to snog him senseless. Draco forgot his anger after that, "Thank you for helping me."

"You're welcome." Draco smiled, still dazed from the kiss.

Maybe this won't be so bad, if it keeps putting a smile on his face. Draco thought to himself...
7th-Dec-2009 09:37 am - *Holiday Fic* The 12 Pains Of Christmas - Hogwarts Way

Title: The 12 Pains Of Christmas – The Hogwarts Way
Author: Lady B
Pairing: Harry/Draco/Severus
Rating: PG13 for language
Summary: Draco and Severus knew that Harry never had an ideal Christmas, growing up with The Dursleys. They were determined to give him the best Christmas ever – the muggle way. No one told Draco it would be so hard!
Author's Note: I sat here the last few weeks thinking of what I was going to write for my annual HP-themed Christmas fic and this popped into my head. This will most be a series of song-fic drabbles to the tune of "The 12 Pains of Christmas" by The Bob Rivers Comedy Troupe.
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and plots from the Harry Potterverse belong to JK Rowling and various publishing companies and movie studios. "The 12 Pains Of Christmas" is written by Bob Rivers and I do not claim the rights to this song. I am not making any money from this, I am simply doing this for the fun of it. Any plot devices and original characters belong to me alone and are simply a figment of my imagination.
Song Links: Want to listen to the song? You can listen to it here. To download it for your own collection, you can find it here.



The first thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me, is finding a Christmas tree...

They had been wandering the lot of trees for what seemed like hours.

"Severus, I'm freezing! Why can't I use a heating charm?" Draco complained for the thousandth time. Severus had to clamp down on the urge to hex him.

"Because we promised Harry we wouldn't." Severus growled.

"This sucks." Draco whined.

"Don't be childish." Severus sighed, rolling his eyes when he caught Draco sticking his tongue out.

Harry ran toward them, eyes sparkling, face flushed with the cold and excitement.

"I found it!" he grinned, grabbing Draco's hand.

"S'about bloody time." Draco muttered. Severus could only shake his head as he followed his partners...

- - -

The second thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me: Rigging up the lights...

"Why the hell aren't these lights blinking?" Draco complained later that evening. Severus felt his inner temperature go for mildly annoyed to slow-simmering rage.

"The flasher light is blown, hang on a minute." Harry stated, digging through a packet of spare bulbs he'd purchased. He quickly located the darkened bulb and changed it, grinning with delight when the lights began their twinkling right away. "I'm going to check on the popcorn. Think you can handle those lights?"

"Got it covered. How hard can it be?" Draco replied. Harry kissed Draco's cheek as he got to his feet, rubbing Severus's shoulder as he passed on his way to the kitchen.

"Draco you don't know what you're doing, do you?" Severus asked once Harry was out of earshot. Draco pulled out his wand.

"Easy as pie." Draco smirked.

"You promised." Severus reminded him.

"I hate muggles." Draco grumbled, stashing his wand away...

When Harry returned to the living room, he nearly bit his tongue in half to prevent himself from laughing at the sight he was now witness to.

Draco had tried hanging the lights on the tree and had gotten himself tangled up in the cords.

Severus, stoic man that he was famous for being, had no such qualms and was practically laying on the floor with laughter.

With a flick of his hand, Harry freed his lover, a small smile on his face.

"Fine! You're so bloody smart, you put up these lights!" Draco growled at Severus before storming away.

"Severus!" Harry sighed.

"I'll get him." he chuckled, wiping tears of mirth from his eyes. Harry laughed and went back into the kitchen, knowing Severus would calm Draco down...



The third and fourth things coming next time...

Author's Note: Been a while since I've been on LJ/IJ and AWDT and this one jumped out at me.



Up until this point in their lives, Draco Malfoy and Severus Snape were not afraid of anything. They had fought beside and against one of the most feared Dark Lords in wizarding history and came away with their lives intact. They spent time in Azkaban for their sins and came away with their sanity intact.

And then Harry Potter came into their lives like a dervish, ruthlessly breaking down all their carefully constructed walls.

1.

Andras, Supreme Ruler of the Kingdom of the Four Lances, stared at the paper in his hand, a frown on his face and fear in his heart. He looked at the person that delivered the news to him.

"Are you sure of this?" he asked, his voice betraying nothing.

"As sure as I am of the sun rising in the morn, My Lord." came the smooth reply. Andras took a moment to think.

"And what of the messenger?"

"Dead, My Lord. A necessary thing, I assure you."

"I see."

"What shall we do, My Lord? The princess must be protected at all costs, if this note is to be believed."

"Call the Council. I will meet with them in a few hours to get their opinions."

"As you wish." the man bowed and turned to leave.

"And Akor?" Andras called. The man known as Akor turned to look back.

"Tell no one of this. Secrecy is of the utmost importance."

"As you will it, Sire." Akor bowed and left. If anyone had been looking at him then, they would have wondered about the smirk firmly planted on his face.

Summer...2001...

It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. And for the third time, it turned into a disaster. Ava stared down at the miles of white Vera Wang in her hands, gently rubbing the gold brocade trim that had taken nearly two weeks to sew. The flowers that made up her bouquet, flown in from Hawaii only hours before were slowly wilting on the bench next to her.

Around her, friends and family milled about the antechamber of the church she should have been getting married in, the buzz of their conversations passing through her ears in a fog.

It was a bright and sunny Saturday morning on Mysteria Walk. In a house located on a cliff overlooking the bay, one of the three resident bachelors was slowly waking. Now, these three bachelors had been longtime friends and business parters. They knew each other very well, and had their Saturday routine down to an art. It was Remus who always woke first to start the coffee, feed the animals and get the newspaper. Severus would awake just shortly after to start breakfast. Sirius was the last one to wake, who would then take the dog for a walk before they would all shower and start their various Saturday morning chores.

But this morning's routine was about to be thrown slightly out of whack...

Author's Note: This is a sequel to "Harry's First Detention" and makes reference to events in that story. If you haven't read it, this story may not make much sense... If you have read the story, then this sequel tells the tale of how Snape fulfilled the tasks Dumbledore assigned him. This story picks up only a few days after "Harry's First Detention".


Lady B's Observation: Each chapter is a lesson in laughter. I did read "Harry's First Detention" but in all honesty, you could probably skip it and still get an idea of what went on from the first chapter of "Harry's New Home". Bookmark it, because it's a wild and fun ride. Can Sev be my dad, too? Please?

"I don't see why I have to go." Ron pouted.

"Because Harry's your friend and has been for the past twenty years." Hermione practically growled, sick of having this same argument with her husband.

Author's Note: I thought I'd try and make an effort to free my muse from my brain and participate in the Quickies fest for Valentine's Day. I'm going to try and make each one a continuation of the previous one, and each title will be some kind of quote about Valentine's Day taken from http://quotegarden.com. This will be a Harry/Draco by the end.


Sometimes I wish I were a little kid again, skinned knees are easier to fix than broken hearts.
~Author Unknown

The moment Draco set eyes on Vasili, he had fancied himself in love. He had been on a business trip to Greece to check on one of his many Malfoy holdings, and had taken a late evening walk down to the beach. There were still a few people enjoying the sun of the remaining day and Draco had just turned to head back to his hotel when something in his peripheral vision caught his attention. He turned in time to see a dark head of hair emerging from the surf. He turned to watch and he could have sworn he felt his heart stop when the face appeared. The man's face looked as if it could have been carved from stone, all sharp angles and planes, making him look like a Greek God of Myth. It took all he had in him not to drool.

And then the rest of the man came into view.

25th-Jan-2009 02:18 am - *REWRITE* A Time of Promises Chapter 3
Hey all. This is a rewrite of Chapter 3...I realized I'd left out a lot of details and made some serious plot holes in the previous version. I had the rewrite done a couple of weeks ago and forgot about it until now. So, enjoy. Btw...this rewrite is longer than the original.



Title: A Time of Promises
Author: Lady B
Pairing: Do I really need to say?
Genre(s): AU Romance
Rating(s): PG and up. I'll warn you if smut ensues.
Summary: One was a cop who'd seen too much death and destruction in his career. The other had lost every memory he'd ever had. In the remote snowcapped mountains of Montana, USA, they will both find the strength to go on, and maybe even find that one thing they'd been missing...each other.
Challenge: Part of my Insanejournal's [info]50harlequins table. Prompt #22 – Cop & Amnesiac Accident Victim.
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and plots from the Harry Potterverse belong to JK Rowling and various publishing companies and movie studios. I am not making any money from this. I am simply doing this for the fun of it. Any plot devices and original characters belong to me alone and are simply a figment of my imagination.
Author's Note: This is my third annual HP Christmas story. Probably won't be done until after Christmas, but I'll give it a shot.

Chapter 3



He woke slowly, feeling warmer than he had in some time. He opened his eyes slowly, blinking against the harsh light of the sun shining through the window. Once his eyes adjusted, he took in his surroundings. The walls were wood, midway between light and dark burgundy in color. The furniture was made of the same, decorated in all different shades of brown. He lay back against the pillows, rubbing his eyes as he tried to recall how he came to be here. The only thing he could remember were bright green eyes and being cold. He ran his fingers through his hair, wincing when they came upon a large knot near the base of his skull.

11th-Jan-2009 10:33 am - *2 Fic Recs* A Squib Worth and Dawn by Naia
Title: A Squib Worth
Author: Naia
Archived @: Fanfiction.net
Pairing: Harry/Hermione (I know, right?)
Rating: PG13
Status: Complete at 4 Chapters
Summary: The day Harry Potter turned eleven was the day he would have re-entered the magical world. But the letter never came; Harry Potter was a Squib. Dismissed by the wizards, he makes a quiet life for himself and will not stand for them to ruin it.

Why I am recommending it: Now I really don't care for Harry/Hermione pairings, but the summary intrigued me and I wanted to see what it was all about. But Naia has managed to put a lifetime of Harry in 4 chapters. It's a Harry-is-betrayed with a twist for lack of a better word. It delves into exactly how prejudice wizards and witches are to those who have little/no magic, but yet when it's time for action on Harry's part, he refuses to co-operate, for why should he help wizards when those same wizards shunned him for most of his life? An intriguing story from beginning to end. And dude...I just read HET for pete's sake! You HAVE to read it now!

And speaking of Harry-is-betrayed stories...

Title: Dawn
Author: Naia
Archived @: Fanfiction.net
Pairing: Author is undecided on Harry at the mo, but there is Dramione and Bleville
Rating: PG
Status: WiP at 4 Chapters last updated January 5, 2009
Summary: A new dawn, a new day. In a now peaceful world, Harry Potter likes to watch the dawns. Battle weary and betrayed, he is finally enjoying life in the Muggle world. However the wizards haven't forgotten the Boy-who-lived and want him back.

Why I am recommending it: From the first paragraph in the first chapter, to the last word in the last updated chapter I was sucked in like a moth to a flame. This this the penultimate Harry is betrayed story, and by the people he least expected: Remus, Sirius, Hermione and Neville. I don't want to give too much away so you're just going to have to read it and add it to your alerts list.


And did you know the author is a 23 year old French woman in her 6th year of studies at medical school? And she finds time to write such intriguing stories? Yeah! I'm impressed!

Chapter 9: Another Battle, Another Farce...

Three weeks into term, and Harry already hated the new Defense teacher with a passion rivaling her sub-hatred for Dumbledore. Delores Umbridge, Ministry lackey and spy for Minister Fudge was proving to the students at large that she didn't know one bloody thing about Defense Against The Dark Arts. The woman had taken an instant dislike to Harry for no reason other than the fact that she was Harry Potter. And the class was turning into the biggest joke of all. And Harry had had enough.

Author's Note: [info]awdt Christmas Quickie #22 – Under The Mistletoe



"What is that?" Severus demanded staring at the small plant hanging in the door.

"What does it look like?" Draco asked.

"I know what it is! What is it doing in our rooms?"

"It's tradition to kiss beneath mistletoe, Severus." Harry said as he and Draco boxed him in the doorway.

"I don't celebrate Christmas. And I certainly don't kiss under mistletoe." Severus snorted.

"Oh, I think we can change your mind." Draco purred, running a finger down the front of Severus's robe.

"And we didn't say where you would be kissed." Harry growled.

"Oh."

A few moments later...

"Oh!"
