Now move away with me from Bella and Edward, and let's talk about fic that is based in JK Rowling's universe.
Alright, you should know by now that I like fics that are sweet, without tons of angst and tons of manufactured strife. This story has just that. This is a story that I love. You wanna know why?
Well, Draco is a young dad of an adorable kid. He is not the spoiled brat you know from the Harry Potter world of JK Rowling.
He grew up.
And he is deeply in love with...
Don't get all freaky and shocked, thinking I have recced you slash (SUE does not do slash. You want that, talk to T!).
Zane is his son and NOTHING is as sexy as a man that loves and cares for his child.
Take the attributes of Draco, the determination, the tenacity, add to it a man who learned from a mistake of a one night stand with a spoiled woman (Pansy), and you have this Daddy Draco.
SO SUE, where does the hotness come in?
Enter Hermione, who, taking a page from her Muggle roots, has started a school for magical children. Where as most children from magical families are home-schooled, Hermione starts a preschool where the children can prep for Hogwarts.
Guess what newly-single Dad needs to do with his little boy? YUP. Enroll him in school. AND here is where the sparks start to fly.
Zane, of course, falls in love with his new teacher. Draco tries his best to not badmouth her, while being oddly attracted to her physically (of course).
In this story, the two make a choice to be together in order to save Draco's custody of his son from his ex-wife.
During the course of this, they actually fall in love, but it takes time.
Other things you will love about this fic:
- The precocious and very cute mini-Draco, Zane. He is adorable but not super cutesy.
- A special appearance by Fred and George Weasley had me laughing, literally OUT LOUD. I got some funny looks from the family for those times!
SO give this fic a shot. You never know, this might be the one that converts you to a new fandom!
And if you have already read some HP fic, it will reunite you with an old friend!
