Recipient: ile_o
Title: Burning Day: A Tale of Rebirth
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, implied past Ginny/Harry
Summary: Looking for a bit of solitude over his winter holiday, Harry Potter rents a home in Scotland, only to end up in the middle of adventure, with ice cream in coffee, enchanted furniture, and more magical creatures than he’d ever imagined. Plus, there is a man who looks uncannily like his school rival from Hogwarts. But, he has no memory of meeting Harry in the past. Harry is determined to find out what happened to Draco Malfoy between his disappearance and finding his new identity as a charming unicorn trainer at the Scotland Unicorn Reservation for Lost Youths.

Author's Notes: Hello ile_o! May this serve as a warning that, since you asked for “UNICORNS!!!”, I gave you unicorns. Probably in all caps with a few extra exclamation points, too. There’s also plenty of plot – what began as a 10,000 story became a 20,000 monster (in the best of ways). I do hope you like it! Thanks must go out to D, A, and K, who were the best of cheer!readers. Even more thanks to taradiane with her super!beta and the other mods of HD_hols - you all are the most wonderful! Happiest of Christmases to a talented artist in our fandom!

**Mod note: This was originally posted with the file name pointing to the wrong recipient. *facepalm* The fic was correct, just the file name was wrong (as they're all named as 'for_recipient.html'). It has since been renamed, but if you had it bookmarked under that wrong name, it will no longer work for you. Just FYI. I apologize for the error!

I'll admit that the unicorns made me nervous to read--I really wasn't sure what we were dealing with here :)

But I think this is one of my very fave fics of the fest, so far. I absolutely love the way they got together. I'm glad Draco didn't fight it all just to be a petulant brat and that he let Harry back in after that month. I also like that they both recognized there was something between them even back at Hogwarts. I'm curious about what the situation would have been like if it had gone the other way... if Harry had been the one without his memory.

The fat little unicorn was THE CUTEST. Aww. There's this t-shirt from Woot called "Fat Unicorn" -- this is totally how I envisioned little Georgey.



(I might have cried a little when the herd accepted him :')

I was so into it that I didn't even notice the scroll bar getting smaller, and I'm usually very aware of that. It was just suddenly DONE. Boo. I'd have read another 100k of this, easily. Even more, really.

So great. Thank you so much for writing and gifting!!
