Harry Potter and the Really Round-About Way of Finding a Horcrux, by floweringjudas
Title: Harry Potter and the Really Round-About Way of Finding a Horcrux
Summary: One should know better than to involve oneself in Weasley Family Skirmishes, even as a messenger. It always ends badly. ...Or really well, depending on your perspective.
Pairing: Harry Potter/Percy Weasley
The story is full of humour and the tiniest bit of angst. Percy and Harry are wonderfully in character, bumbling around each other before finally coming together.

"Hmm. Well, you're too late for Bill, and he's a known ladykiller anyway, Molly's been turning a deaf ear to those rumours for near a decade. Charlie? Haven't seen him lately."

"Well, you're fast running out of options, m'boy!" Moody interrupted, enjoying the guessing game. "If it's not Charlie or the twins, and if it's not Ron, then - " Mad-Eye's smile slowly vanished, and he gave Harry a traumatised look as he finally caught on. Harry didn't think it was humanly possible, but his face went redder. "The Ministry brat?"
"...He's not a brat," Harry found himself saying. For God's sake, where's Voldemort and a well-aimed Avada Kedavra when you need them?
Mad-Eye's nonmagical eye twitched. "...Huh."
