Title: Strings of Attachment
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, mention of Ron/Hermione and other DH pairings implied.
Summary: What if Harry Potter had gone to Godric's Hollow early in his year of searching? And what if he had met someone there he wanted to revenge himself upon?

Deathly Hallows compliant? DH-compliant up until early in the "camping-trip". After this it's a very close parallel AU. The epilogue is unlikely to happen in this universe.

Author's Notes: Thanks to E. for help and the beta and S for betaing too *hugs* Also thanks to SA for inspiring a certain piece of magic in here; it was a great idea and I loved what you did with it, so if you see this, consider it tribute.
Thanks to the mods for running this great exchange! It's a joy to be part of.
Most of all: morganmuffle, thanks for the prompt! I set out to write a BDSM-ish getting together story, but it didn't want to be that. Instead you got a "What if?" and I hope I've included enough of your likes to make you feel it's a worthy present. A very happy holiday to you!
