Title: Here's The Pencil, Make It Work
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, featuring brief Draco/OC and brief Harry/Ginny at the start, Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Neville, & Dean/Luna
Summary: Harry thinks "Why is Malfoy working in a coffee shop in muggle London?" is a much simpler question than, "Are you going to accept that auror offer and, if you don't, what will you do?"

Warning(s): Explicit sexual shenanigans (including brief and less explicit but totally sexual het), a few original characters (I needed some muggles!), and a great deal of abuse of alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine – and a little bit of weed.
Epilogue compliant? Not even a little bit!

Author's Notes: fireflavored, your request has brought me a lot of joy and helped me to write something that's been waiting to come out for a very long time, so thank you so much for that. I only hope, after that open ended prompt, that it pleases you! Thanks to my beta for treating this story with the utmost seriousness, and of course, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the mods for running this wonderful fest! I am so happy and honored to have participated in the final year! Happy holidays! (Oh, and I stole my title from a very lovely poem by Richard Siken, who, if you do not already know it, is perfect in every way.)
