Title: The Horribly Optimistic and Naïve
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (with RW/HG, BZ/PP)
Summary: When Harry gets politely refused from the Auror program, he goes back to school to find that Draco has begun to run the place. Of course, Malfoy's got to be up to something.
Rating: barely PG-13.
Disclaimer: Well gosh, are you really going to read this thinking I'm the one and only JKR, magic maker and dream seeker? I'm in no way affiliated with Warner Brothers or Bloomsbury/Scholastic, and the only profit I make off this will be smiles. Can you sue for smiles? I'd rather just give you one for free, because no copyright infringement is intended; I'm just having fun. : )
Warning(s): mention of self-mutilation (very small), MPREG, slashyslashness (with a side of het?), a few mentions of threesomes (also small)
Compliant: DH compliant, EWE. This is one odd mix of using JKR's names for nextgen but then not using what she said about Harry Potter's middle name...
Word Count: 17,000+
Author's Notes: So, I feel like I tagged the ending onto this a bit quickly, since I had started this trying to get away from JKR's epilogue. This fic just kept getting longer and longer until it ate me up, and I never really reached the point where I was comfortable writing sex for these boys (sorry!). Many thanks to my sister/beta who sat with me, reading the story aloud along with misspellings and random extra words, who was patient even though I can't spell 'their' or capitalise 'Harry' consistently. Thank you for putting on your top hat and battling the continuity fails. Also, many thanks to B and J for being my other betas, who made me see that sometimes your sister can understand things that normal people wouldn’t. Any mistakes left over are of course my own. Thank you to the mods, betas, and sisters for your support! Leo_Draconis, I hope you like it!
