If you want to read a good Harry/Draco fic, let me direct you to Salt on the Westen Wind by saras_girl. It starts directly after the final chapter of Deathly Hallows (epilogue be damned). Harry & co. are forced away to a safehouse, forbidden to do magic, while the wizarding world tries to round up the remaining Death Eaters and, respecting his debt to Narcissa, Harry agrees to take Draco to safety with them. In a fit of mutual stupidity, Harry and Draco end up bound together at the wrist with only the knowledge that “trust” will end the spell. It’s really beautifully written and characterized and I have read it three times now. There aren’t really any warnings to give, either. There’s a sex scene and some encounters of homophobia (not the internalized kind tho), and a lot of really terrible romance novels. Here’s the author’s summary:

When the war isn’t quite as over as it first appears, a guilt-ridden Harry is sent to a mysterious safe-house. Among sandwiches, insomnia, and Mills & Boon, he discovers something quite unexpected.

There’s a lot of my favorite things in this—extremely powerful Harry, discussion of deepest feelings and issues being the main ones—and it develops properly with a really nice pace. Ron and Hermione are really well done also and I feel like that sealed the deal for me. It is fairly long though, at 60,500 words. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!! (And many thanks to Charlie for putting me onto this.)
