HAPPY HOLIDAYS, THE_MINX_17!
Title: This Is a Test
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione (passing references to Harry/Ginny and Draco/Pansy past relationships)
Betas: IgnobleBard (above and beyond the usual); Britpicking by Spiced Wine (any lapses would be my own).
Summary: This is an Eighth Year at Hogwarts story in which Harry and Draco are a couple of months into a relationship which began during the summer immediately following the defeat of Voldemort. In the absence of old friends and enemies, and during the first flush of a new relationship, everything has gone swimmingly until they found themselves back at Hogwarts for an extra post-war year. Draco can be anxious and prattish, while Harry finds it hard to give up saving the world. It might involve stupidly creative use of a time-turner on Harry’s part that could threaten to overturn recent history and put even the defeat of Voldemort in jeopardy (well, that last part’s perhaps a bit of an exaggeration, but sounds like a good hook!).

Author's Notes: Responding to a request for Drama, Slice of Life, Relationship centric, Dark(ish) Harry, Possessive Draco, Toppy Harry, Jealous Harry, Pansy as Draco's BFF, Snarky Draco. [I hit some of those I hope and, although I may have missed others, my desire was to produce a story that someone who asked for those things could enjoy.]
