Harry commits an act of great violence, but doesn’t remember why. Malfoy urges him to run and takes the blame instead. The most obvious explanation makes no sense, and it only gets more complicated from there.
What follows is their struggle to trust and open up to one another while dealing with dangerous and invasive magic, when stepping wrong and losing control, even if only for a few moments, could have severe consequences for them both.

One year after Harry defeated Voldemort at the Battle of Hogwarts, he still has no idea what to do with his life. He’s been living at No. 12 Grimmauld Place with Hermione and Ron, but they’ve spent the past few months on an extended stay in Australia to try and restore Hermione’s parents’ memories. Alone, he feels set adrift. Everyone else is focused on enjoying their summer before Hogwarts reopens (after a one year rebuilding period), but without Ron and Hermione, Harry doesn’t know if he can go back. Everything changes when the Malfoys dramatically re-enter his life, and together they learn to live again.
What did he know about Veela?
Fleur was a Veela.
Ron had all but specialized in their culture, helped by his sister-in-law, and doing a damn good job with that knowledge in his everyday work in the Department of Inter-Species Communications (when he wasn’t on a mission as an Auror).
Veela were obsessed with the idea of one and only possible true love.
Veela had mates.
Veela mated for life.

After the war has ended, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy live very separate lives. Harry makes furniture and volunteers at an orphanage. Draco runs a record shop and writes articles for The Prophet. They both try to avoid public attention, but for very different reasons. Draco suffers from anxiety disorder and fears rejection, even when he knows he's changed for the better. Harry still has PTSD from the War, but he mostly just wants some privacy, and to live a life being someone more than the Boy Who Lived.
When the two meet again for the time after the trial, things start to change. Draco is beginning to redeem himself and come out of his shell, and Harry is realizing his purpose again without the War to control him. The two start to work together for a common cause, making sacrifices for what they believe in, but also starting something new... together.
Harry is a Healer with a savior complex. Draco is a newly-widowed single father. And Scorpius is the child who will bring them together.
