Title: 101 Ways to Heal Your Wizarding Woes (Or, an Unfortunate Incident with a Traffic Cone and a Policeman’s Helmet)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, a touch of Ron/Hermione
Summary: Harry is a trainee Auror, and Draco is living at Malfoy Manor, bored and petulant with nothing to do, and no career prospects. Draco’s attempt to heal himself via Muggle psychology – including writing a series of ‘why I hate you’ letters to Harry – backfires when an overanxious house elf delivers the results to Harry. Harry is bemused, Draco is angry and together they have a lot of issues to work out.

Warning(s): Swearing, explicit but fairly vanilla sex (bottom!Draco, first time).
Deathly Hallows compliant? Set about a year after DH, and pretty much canon compliant, with the exception that Snape is still alive. No reference to the epilogue whatsoever!
Word Count: ~26,500 words
Author's Notes: sesheta_66 wanted a post-Hogwarts plotty fic with lots of angst and fluff and a happy ending; snarky, pushy, demanding bottom!Draco and a strong!Harry with the boys IC; the boys as Aurors or teachers; Snape as mentor to Draco; the boys needing a nudge to act on their attraction to each other; and them addressing their issues with lots of UST, leading up to a sizzling hot first kiss and more. I tried to include all your requests, and had SO much fun writing this, so I really hope you enjoy it. Many thanks to the mods for running such a fabulous fest, and to my wonderful betas. Any remaining mistakes are most definitely mine. Happy holidays sesheta_66!
