He felt loose and relaxed but not even remotely tired, so he called room service and ordered a carafe of fine brandy. When there was a sharp knock on the suite's door, certain it was room service, he crossed to open it. 

It wasn’t room service.

It was Harry Potter. 

Potter was standing in the hallway. And all Draco could manage was a wide-eyed stare while his heart went on a thumping spree in his chest. 

“What the bloody fuck?” The words burst from his mouth without the contribution of his head, but he thought them appropriate. Potter smirked. Potter smirked? When had he even become capable?

“Nice, Malfoy,” he said, his expression wry. “Good to see you again, too.”

“Oh, for fuck’s sakes,” he said, scowling for effect, proud his voice held a sneer. “I’ve no contraband, Potter. I’ve not smuggled anything illegal into the country, and I’m not holding Death Eater reunions in my suite. So if that’s what the Ministry is thinking…”

Potter held up a hand, palm out. “Easy, Malfoy,” he said, and it registered that his voice was different than Draco remembered. It was deeper, more resonant. “You’ve been out of the loop. I’m not an Auror. In fact, I don’t work for the Ministry at all.”

Draco scowled. “You don’t? I thought, surely…” He paused, frowning. “If you don’t work for the Ministry, and aren’t here to harass me on some trumped up nonsense, then what in seven hells are you doing here?”

Potter shifted but didn’t lower his eyes. “I need to speak to you.”

“Much as it pains me, you are speaking to me,” Draco said wryly, finally regaining some of his composure. He opened the door further and leaned against the doorframe, his arms crossed over his mostly bare chest. He saw Potter’s eyes flicker over his attire then come back to his face, and he enjoyed the fact that he seemed uncomfortable. “That’s what we’re doing, in case the finer points have escaped you. We’re speaking.”


This fic is made of pure awesome! Really! Whenever I need a satisfying fix for my father!Harry kink I turn to this fic. It has so much Harry-who-is-good-with-babies/kids in it my heart melts. It's perfect.

You see, in this fic Harry owns an orphanage. And it's adorable! The house, the staff, the kids everything feels so homey and familiar (man, even the air smells of cookies and hot chocolate). Harry considers all the children and babies in his care his family, but one boy, Addy, who he found on his doorstep, he has adopted.

Enter Draco Malfoy. Playboy, model and fashion designer for seductive nightwear. One day, this Draco learns he has fathered a child. A child that has been adopted by no other than Harry Potter...

This fic is gorgeous. I always love it how [info]oldenuf2nb pictures the boys: grown up, fit, manly, with lots of bickering and teasing, and ever fashionably dressed. Aww. Her Harry is a dream, and the interaction between him and Draco is so delightful to read. Gosh! I have much love for this fic that warms your heart, makes you laugh, and gets you all excited. A definite must read.
