SUMMARY: Draco has an important research assignment, and he needs Auror protection. Harry’s a little concerned, not only because he can’t even pronounce the places Draco’s dragging him off to, but because there’s the slightest chance he might do something stupid, like tell Draco all about that little crush he’s been harbouring for a while now... (Given by the author.)
LINK TO FIC: Time and Again

QUOTE:
Malfoy rolled his eyes and then winced, and Harry wanted to kiss him. If he was honest, Harry always wanted to kiss Malfoy; it was like a low ache of want that he shoved deep down and carried everywhere with him, only really acknowledging it when they ran into each other at work. But right then, the adrenaline of them both nearly being killed, and the relief at finding Malfoy okay when for a moment on the beach Harry had thought he’d been too late… Harry really wanted to kiss him.

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Another fic that I found via birdsofshore's exhilarative recs. In that rec she mentioned something about Harry being drugged to the eyeballs with pain killers, rambling on about his very secret crush on Draco and how much he wants to kiss him, while Draco and a very amused Theo are right there witnessing everything. I felt so intrigued by that scene I simply had to read the fic asap.

And I'm so glad I did because Time and Again is such a wonderful read. It's about Unspeakable Draco who needs Auror Harry's protection on his next (super classified) mission. Now, I love me some good bodyguard fic, and this one was really satisfying. It even pushed more than just one of my buttons: There is action/adventure with a lot of thrilling fight scenes, an interesting take on magical theory, Harry protecting Draco, Draco being competent, awesome hurt!Draco and hurt!Harry scenes, smitten!Harry, sharing a tent, hot hot sex, time travel, a nice twist AND that scene I described above. What are you still doing here? Go read! :D
