    Thanks! And now I feel stupid... But having checked my history to see how the hell I missed that, I was typing "would have", "planned to", and "was planning".

    But as soon as I ask for help, I get the phrasing right.

    Looking for a Harry/Ginny fic.

    It may have been Harry and Ginny in Slytherin. I think the story starts with Harry saving Ginny in the chamber. Harry and Ginny develop this sort of "we've seen some shit" camaraderie that around Harry's 5th year turns into a relationship (I think it changed in Twelve Grimmauld Place?). Something happens though and they part on poor terms. Time skip of a year of so and I think the timeline has been fudged a lot so the Triwizard tournament is happening then? I think Ginny was entering as a competitor?

    I also have this strange thought where Ginny is leading some resistance group but that may be unrelated.

    The story where Harry loses his arm in the battle with Voldemort. Hermione reverse-engineers Pettigrew's arm, only Harry's artificial arm is made of bronze because he doesn't want to hurt Lupin by accident.

    Does anyone recognize him after he has the new arm?

    I couldn't resist. I haven't been seen a better straight-line to use that response on. ;)

    Looking for a 4th year fic with the champions having to compete in a broom race. Race involved being chased by harpies at one point.

    That might be "Letters by Endless7" or Harry Potter and the Temporal Beacon by willyolioleo.

    I was hoping it wasn't Temporal Beacon.

    Seen some theory centered around Draco and while it isn't that convincing, it's rather captivating.

    Finally a Harry Potter theory that is actually interesting - 9GAG

    So, are there any interesting fanfics centered around Draco? Doesn't matter which time it focuses on.

    Anyway, to answer the question you asked, I liked The Protean Charm, which is about Draco's actions in 6th and 7th year and his motivations for doing them.

    Thank you! Looks like a good one. Is there anyone out there to satisfy my need of a Post-Hogwarts Draco-Fic?

    Post-war Draco is a character who intrigues me a lot, so I can help you out here.

    The Malfoy Case: The trials for suspected Death Eaters involved in the Wizarding Wars have begun, and Draco Malfoy finds himself trying to hold together what is left of his family and his fortune, while struggling to escape the looming, almost inevitable future of a lifetime spent in Azkaban. But there is one person who might not have given up completely.

    Exile: After the war, Draco is saved by his late grandfather's foresight. With his unanswered questions outnumbering the stars in the sky, he struggles to come to terms with reality. Will he fail yet again? Canon compliant.

    The House that Cedric Built: Draco didn't think there was much reason to hope for a better future. Astoria proved him wrong.

    Draco Malfoy and the Trials of Single Parenthood: Part One of Seven. Draco Malfoy: ex-Death Eater, former bigot, widower and single father. His children worship the Weasleys who clash with the decor, something is rotten at Hogwarts, and he doesn't really know what he's doing. But maybe he's getting the hang of it.


    The Malfoy Case is a legal drama; one of my favorites. Exile is about Draco finding his way through the muggle world. The House that Cedric Built is one one of the very few fics that does the fifth house concept and isn't super cheesy. Draco Malfoy and the Trials of Single Parenthood is primarily a humor fic, but also does the family stuff well.

    The Malfoy Case was excellent. It had precious little resemblance to any real life legal system given the ridiculously young age (an 18 gear old barrister for the trial of the century, really?), but still an excellent fic.
