An Earnest Vow - LeQuin - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
"We're renewing our wedding vows?! Hermione, this is mad."

"Thank you for that sentiment. Leaving now would cause a lot more suspicion than staying and muddling through though." she snapped back in an angry whisper,

"Damn it, this isn't about accepting or rejecting you. We're not wearing wedding rings. We don't have a marriage licence. Hell, we don't even have an address. We have none of the things married couples are supposed to have."

While all he wants is to be alone, finding a family in the most unlikely of places may be just what he needs.

Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.

Malfoy felt inevitable.

Nearly Lost Things, Carefully Tended - SquadOfCats - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Three years after the war, Harry is lost, drifting, and feeling left behind. In an effort to get control of his life, he commits to cleaning out Grimmauld Place top-to-bottom and forcing it to be a home, whether it likes it or not. The rotten old house is stuffed full of antiques, and Harry is shocked to discover none other than Draco Malfoy running the local antique shop. Malfoy is polite -- too polite, and Harry soon finds himself with a mission: to annoy and bother Malfoy with the most hideous, absurd antiques he can find. But along the way, Harry comes to appreciate Draco, his work, and the power of connecting to the people who came before him. It's a hard lesson, but Harry learns that if he wants to build a future, he has to reconnect to his past, and Draco might just be the one to help him do it.

Moldova's Magical Tea - aibidil - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, and—to everyone’s surprise—Draco Malfoy are opening a magical tea shop to revive wizarding tea culture and, hopefully, to bring the community together after the war. Harry, who is unemployed and trying to find his way in post-war society, wants to help his friends with their new business—but that means spending a lot of time around Malfoy. Featuring Muggle music from summer 2001, trips to the Muggle cinema, herbology and magical herbal infusions, and Draco trying to convince Harry that, while he’s still a snarky git, he’s no longer a bigot.

All I Want For Christmas (Is For You To Stop Talking) - Femme (femmequixotic), noeon (noe) - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
The Niffler's Garden is the most prestigious wizarding nursery school in England and has been for the last century or more. Harry Potter's boys are both enrolled as pupils at the Garden. When he volunteers to assist with the Yule pageant, he has no idea that he'll be working closely with another parent, Draco Malfoy. Although they haven't seen each other much since their own school days, Harry faults Malfoy for not being a hands-on dad to little Scorpius. Will the intense weeks of preparation fan the fires of enmity or something else entirely?

Warnings: Background discussion of divorce, coming out, parenting, very brief mention of difficult pregnancy.

I could be wrong, I could be ready - harryromper - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
At first Harry wonders if they’ve managed to destroy his vaults and are trying to tell him in the most oblique way possible. But when he turns the page he realises they’ve found a vault. A vault in the name of Lily and James Potter.

The parchment trembles a little in Harry’s hand. He takes another gulp of wine.

Harry Potter left Britain after the war and didn’t look back. Ten years later, when Gringotts discovers a vault containing his parents’ belongings—including their badly spell-damaged wedding rings—he’s forced to face up to friends and family who’ve grown in ways he could never imagine, a wizarding London rebuilt beyond his expectations, and the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the entirely unforeseen problem of Draco Malfoy.

Featuring pureblood wizarding traditions, ancestral magic, open mic nights, marriage equality, a diner in Brooklyn, and the return of Fleamont Potter.
