This is an (at long last) addition to the Auror!verse, featuring Harry and Draco as Aurors and a lot of bad puns. It reminded me to start tagging my drabble series. So now the Smitten series
– ie my self-indulgent fluff drabbles with innocent!Draco and indulgent!Harry – has a tag! As does the So Much For series
– the one with secretary!Draco, crushing!Harry and summaries for the whole lot. The Silver Snitch series
gets no such summary because I am attempting enigma. And failing, but never mind. There’s a spy and somebody under house arrest and Harry is clueless, which probably makes it my most canon fic by some way.
I’m tagging this as the Poor Kingsley!verse
, actually. Poor, poor Kingsley. Harry and Draco are very silly, and they spoil the peace of his department. He’s also probably sad because he knows his canon self is Minister for Magic, only I forgot.
In Your End-OWord count:
The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.Author’s Notes:

’s challenge, hard
Kingsley was beginning to think that visiting his Aurors when they were injured in the field was entirely too much work. The entire Weasley family, its newest member barely out of the hospital herself, was clustered around Potter’s bed.
“Well, yes, Mrs Weasley,” Potter said, smiling back at her. “Being Malfoy’s partner does tend to make things hard.”
“I’m sure,” she said, patting his hand. “Does it get in the way of work much?”
Potter shrugged, looking a little ashamed to be explaining this to Mrs Weasley. “It does sometimes. He’ll be talking and I just want to pound him.”~*~
Kingsley and Weasley snorted in unison. Potter flushed.
“Ah, well I’m sure you can resist your urges,” Mrs Weasley said with a motherly smile.I wouldn’t count on it,
Kingsley thought, remembering the Cupboard Incident.
“I just hope he’s not too much of a bad influence. You’re a good boy, Harry, but it doesn’t do to underestimate the power of a bad attitude. It’s contagious”
The baby started crying, and the Weasleys filed out. Kingsley and Ron remained; Potter smiled at them wearily. “Don’t worry, I haven’t caught anything off Draco.”
Weasley snorted. “You’re catching his thing for perverted innuendo.”
