If only their hearts could stick to the plan....
CHAPTER ELEVEN SNIPPET:
When Ginny finally came downstairs, her eyes were bright and red-rimmed with happy tears. Her teammates and friends swarmed her again, congratulating her on becoming an auntie once more. She thanked everyone profusely, but her attention was clearly divided. Her eyes kept drifting toward Draco as if to make sure he stayed put until she could reach him.
And when she was finally free from the well-wishers and standing in front of him once more, it took all of Draco’s control not to pull her toward him and kiss her. That look on her face, the relief and elation—he never wanted to see it leave. He realized then that there was little Draco wouldn’t do to spare her from misery, like the kind she’d experienced over the summer when she’d been bashed in the press.
The realization frightened him enough to flee, but he couldn’t. She was here. As much as he wished to escape his feelings, he also couldn’t deny himself the opportunity to be around her.

Slow burn Draco/Ginny as main pairing and told largely from both of their perspectives, though other POVs make a regular appearance. 95% OoTP compliant, 75% HBP compliant, and we diverge from there. Some inspiration drawn from Sarah J. Maas' universes include ACOTAR, Throne of Glass, and Crescent City; Motherland: Fort Salem; and Senlinyu's "Manacled."

For the life of her, Ginny Weasley did not know how this had happened. She could have blamed the two glasses of expensive champagne, or considered the possibility of being put under the Imperius Curse, but she knew deep down that that was not the case. Somehow, she had knowingly and wilfully ended up here. Shit.Category: Works in Progress

Chapter FIFTEEN quote of the day:
She and Draco were sitting very close. Their hands were almost touching. She turned to him, and in the same moment, he did the same towards her. Slowly, deliberately, fully aware that this might not be a good idea at all, she put her hand into Draco’s much larger one. His eyes widened, but he curved his fingers around hers.
“When I’m near you, like this,” she said, “I think I can tell you more.”
“Try,” said Draco.
Ginny thought about what to say next. “When you saw me last night,” she said, “I came through an underground passageway that led from… from where we were…” She felt her breath catch again. “I don’t know if I can—”
Firmly, without warning, Draco took her into his arms.
