Fic Claim: 1,000 Points From Gryffindor

Title: 1,000 Points From Gryffindor
Word Count: ~25,500
Rating: Mature (R)
Pairings: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, background pairings
Content/Warnings: brief alcohol and marijuana-equivalent use and playful drunkenness, brief physical, canon-typical violence, humor, shenanigans, a silly mystery, feels, comfort, making out, blow jobs, snark, banter, eighth year, the gratuitous losing of house points, and a bit of cheese
Summary: The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry's suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy's hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!
Author's Notes: Dearest cylsus, happy hols! I hope the season treats you warmly and with all the joy and love in the world, and that this humble gift brings you some laughs. I had like twelve different ideas when I first read your request, and I think none of those ideas actually made it into this story, lol. But there is mystery and humor and dumb boys in love, and so it is my hope that you enjoy! <3 With thanks, also, to my fabulous beta eidheann_writes, who is an actual goddess and to whom I owe so very, very much. Finally, thanks to the mods for once again running this fest. You are stars.

[My Thoughts and Feels]So full disclosure, I started two separate fics before I started this little champion (one of which is Make 'Em Laugh, one of my 2017 fics to come). And I started writing this little champion on October 25, 2016...I wrote over 25k in two weeks because THAT'S RIGHT DARLINGS I TURNED MY FIC IN ON TIIIIIIME. No but seriously though? The response to this fic has been amazing, and I like?? am not sure what I did????? No I'm kidding, I know what I did. I wrote 8th year fluff. :D I always say I can't write fluff, but hell, apparently I can. But in all seriousness, I had a genuine blast writing this story. It came together amazingly quickly, it was weirdly fully realized in my head in a way my fics often aren't when I first start writing them, the characters just WANTED TO LIVE and so they did. I may or may not be thinking about possibly writing side-stories about Wendell Applewhite and his husband Calvin, and Morag and their girlfriend Figgy, and like Blaise and Pansy and Theo's reaction to all of this, and how Draco and Susan became friends, and honestly, I am a mess, and it's fine. :D I love you all. And now to reply to your lovely comments you amazing humans.
