Title: Phoenix Song (Part 1 of 2)
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry. Aside from this, every single pairing as provided by the epilogue and JKR’s further notes, except for a swift Harry/OMC.
Rating: R
Summary: When Draco, as the head of the Hit Wizards Department, decides to take an extremely dangerous job on, who would be the ideal partner for such a task is the only easy answer in the whole ordeal. And Harry, just out of a divorce, bored, restless, and unable to talk to anyone but the one person who has become a frenemy over the years, might just still be reckless enough to take up the challenge, along with his no less reckless godson. And when Harry realizes he’s lusting desperately after his partner, the assignment isn’t even the main concern any longer.
Warnings (if any): Harsh language, scenes of mild sexual nature, spoilers for all books and for all the follow-up information JKR provided, as it takes off where the Epilogue leaves off, thus being completely canon-compliant. Graphic violence.
Total word count: 16,627

Author's notes: You said you wanted Epilogue-compliant, plot, romance, humour, snark, mystery, a touch of angst, some action, definitely a happy ending. Post-War with appearances by Narcissa and Teddy. Also the way an Animagus’s thinking differs from that of a human triggered by certain instincts. In order to keep it completely canon-compliant, I had to create spreadsheets, where I tried to document family histories/trees, jobs etc of everyone (a lot of which I didn’t end up needing). Very few things, though (like Draco’s job), that JKR didn’t provide, I had to make up. I had great fun writing this (and this was definitely the longest “one-shot” I’ve ever written), so I hope you enjoy it!! ♥
