i swear i faced a huge writer's block for this one and i don't even know how it turned out tbh.
Keys to a healthy relationship
“ Psychology today’s mentions in the blog that keys to a healthy relationship are trust, honesty and interaction in both negative and positive ways to keep the fire in the relationship burning and to keep love alive. Hear that Ron, interaction and honesty are the keys to a healthy relationship” Hermione eyed Ron, lifting her eyes from the newspaper she was reading from, in a way that she was taunting him about something.
Ron groaned and just then Harry tagged along on the table “ What are we talking about?” he asked as he gave Hermione her cup of cappuccino and Ron his cup of lemonade while he himself sat down with his cup of normal hot coffee.
“ Keys to a healthy relationship apparently that Hermione assumes I don’t know of” Ron rolled his eyes
“Why is that ?” Harry hummed
“ Tell him, Ron” she narrowed her eyes in a normal way she used to do all those years ago when she was annoyed by Ron or he had done something wrong, Harry was very much familiar with the look.
“ I lied to her about not wanting to go to the ministry party, I told her I had somethings to do Ginny for Mum and Dad’s anniversary when instead I was watching quidditch match at home” Ron recited monotonously.
“ See that was lying to me and not communicating to me” Hermione commented
“ Can you blame him though, I mean have you seen the ministry Party’s, they’re boring as hell, all old wizards and witches and old boring crap” Harry frowned
“ Exactly, Thank you Harry” Ron exaggerated
“ But that’s not the point-”
“ I’m sure he just didn’t want to hurt your feelings by telling you how pathetic those Party’s are and sometimes he just doesn’t like going to them you know. When he’s lying for your benefit then I don’t think they should fundamentally harm your relationship, all technicality you know “ Harry explained as he gulped the remaining of his coffee.
Ron gave him an impressed smile and looking at Hermione in ‘see he gets it’
Hermione rolled her eyes “Fine, I’ll just go by myself-”
“ That’s not what I meant-” Ron interrupted
“ Seemed like to me” Hermione lopsidedly replied taking her cup back to the counter suggesting that she was slightly pissed.
“ Thanks mate “ Ron rolled his eyes and went after Hermione.
Harry laughed as he watched Ron trying to make upto Hermione and soothing her with words like ‘we’ll go to your favourite orchestra show’
Harry shook his head, picking the newspaper from the coffee table and had only read the first few headline when he heard.
“ Hey “
Harry’s face immediately grew into a smile “ Hi babe “ and he immediately got up and pecked his lips quickly in a sweet affection.
“ What’s up with them ?” Draco asked as he sat down next to Harry on the chair after ordering one of the waiters his regular
“Ron lied to Hermione to avoid a ministry party and now he’s trying to make up to her” Harry chuckled
“ Can you blame him, those Party’s are as boring as Hagrid’s classes “ Draco and Harry chuckled along.
“ They weren’t so bad you know “ Harry teased after a while
“ Please, he left buckbeak on me” Draco rolled his eyes
“ If we clearly remember-”
“ We don’t need to get into details. One shall not remain in the past” Draco said and immediately thanked the waiter for bringing his usual coffee. Harry chuckled.
“We’re still up for tonight ?” Harry asked suddenly
“ Tonight ?” Draco asked
“Yeah, We’re visiting Teddy’s recital, I told you that” Harry frowned.
Draco face immediately formed into a mild shock of how he had absolutely forgotten about that “I totally forgot about that, I- I have some left over work at school to finish, and I have to arrange the test for tomorrow morning, I’m sorry, He won’t be upset if don’t make it through would he ?” Draco asked apologetically
Harry nodded disappointingly “ He’ll understand I think, still try to make it through”
Draco smiled at Harry before he placed a soft kiss on his forehead and told him he’ll try to make it.
When a few minutes later Draco left in a hurry claiming he completely forgot about something at work, Harry felt something was off. He had been feeling the vibe and something being off for a while but had not raised any doubt, in himself or in Draco because he knew how much they loved each other and he knew Draco would never do anything to hurt Harry, not purposely anyway, and Harry knew that very well, after all they had been together for a very long time almost 4 years in a couple weeks.
“ What’s up with you ?” Harry immediately looked up at the question and nodded instantly that everything was fine and he was just thinking about what to wear for Teddy’s recital tonight.
“ Don’t you think Draco had been cancelling a few more plans than usual lately, I mean I didn’t want to say anything but it seems like it doesn’t it ?” Hermione asked settling into the seat where Draco was formerly sitting.
Harry dazed Turned to Hermione " I've been trying not to think of it but its evident right ?"
Hermione hesitantly nodded " I'm pretty sure it's nothing though. I mean he wouldn't ever hurt you "
" I know but it's just a bit suspicious. Anyways- where did Ron go ?" Harry asked interjecting himself
" oh- he left for some work at office "
Harry nodded despite of it seeming fishy too.
Harry pretended as the days went by that he wasn't bothered by Draco cancelling plans over and over again, he pretended that he was oblivious of the fact that Draco was cancelling most of plans on purpose and surprisingly enough for the first time Ron was calm about the whole situation and told Harry to just relax and maybe see it from a different perspective. Easier said than done, when your boyfriend of 3, almost 4 years cancel on a routine saturday dinner’s for the 3rd time in a month, something felt fishy and he couldn’t help but wonder the worst possible scenarios and even though he hated himself to think of them, he couldn’t help but think of them.
“ Maybe you’re just thinking about it a lot, Maybe he is in fact busy at school. I mean Harry you do know how hard things can be before christmas breaks right, the whole winding up of syllabus and giving off tests and assessing everything. Its not easy being a Professor Harry. I’m sure he’ll make it upto you somehow “ Ron advised and for some reason Harry didn’t feel as though his words were genuine but he did understand the point of it but it was suspicious of how calm he really was being, he was normally the paranoid one in the whole thing but ever since he became an auror and started living with Hermione, he had changed a lot.
“ Maybe you’re right” Harry sighed. Ron nodded understandably.
“ But I can’t help but wonder you know “ Harry interrupted
“ wonder what ?” Ron asked curiously.
“ That he might be you know “ Harry raised his eyebrows suggestively.
“ Draco- What. No, It’s Draco we’re talking about, he’d never. He loves you too much to do anything like that. Have a little faith in your boyfriend Harry. This is the same Draco we’re talking about who walked with his hands in your backpocket so people would stop staring at your ass “ Ron chuckled. Harry smiled at the memory. Draco really used to do that and he very much liked putting hands in back pocket to label their relationship. When in the beginning Harry had doubts about the relationship and Draco, he had done that to prove Harry how much he meant to him and how much serious he was about that and that was only back when they were in 8th year and even though everyone knew Harry was taken, Draco used to tag along because he feared one day Harry might find someone better and he hated to think of those times. Their relationship hadn’t been the easiest one’s in any sort, the complications, the humiliations, the fight, the taunts, the hate, everything they had to face to finally reach here, Harry knew Draco wouldn’t trade it for the whole world but with everything, Harry couldn’t help but wonder each time Draco cancelled a plan whether something went wrong in all the time they’ve been together and if Draco is finally bored of Harry after all.
“Mate, relax. He loves you, its very cheesy but he really does and he reminds you like everyday, if not you then no one “ Ron reassured when Harry remained lost in his thoughts.
Harry looked at Ron for a few moments before he realised that maybe Ron was right and he was just being more paranoid and again he let it slide and everything turned out fine infact. The next day Draco took both of them out on a nice fancy date and spoiled Harry and apologized a lot for being a terrible boyfriend and for not making time for him and how his activities are inexcusable and Harry knew then in his heart that Draco would never find it in himself to ever think of cheating on Harry or even leaving him because clearly he loved him too much.
It was a couple of days before Christmas when after a casual meet up after days Harry had stayed over at Draco’s place. There was unsettling odd feeling about everything, and just Draco in general because after the last date he had been pretty distant or somewhat weird and not in a “ i love you less “ way but in a he’s hiding something way and that terrified Harry more than “ i love you less now “, so he wandered off in the apartment after Draco had fallen alseep and was snuggled closely in the blankets. Harry had wandered off just walking in the apartment and ended up scurrying through cabinets to find something to eat when he finally found it.
Harry gasped as soon as he opened a small blue tiffany box and in it rested a key.
“ OH - That’s why “ Harry grinned to himself in relief when he realised what it was and kept it back where he found it, smiling to himself. That night Harry slept well for the first time in a long time.
The next morning events were as delightful as Harry’s mood and had resulted in a morning shower sex and a sweet complimentary breakfast simply because he was too happy to have found that Draco wasn’t cheating on him or anything else but had been apartment hunting and even if he allowed himself to just assume everything, he didn’t refuse to believe that he might be incredibly wrong but it didn’t cause any hurdles in the morning activities.
“ You’re in a rather good mood today” Draco grinned as he lingered on Harry’s lips after the makeout session in the kitchen.
“ What can I say, you have this effect on me” Harry whispered with his eyes closed and the sweet taste of Draco’s lips still over his own.
“ Wow Harry- you- I so want you again right now” Draco bit Harry’s lip pressing him against the counter
“ Then fucking have me “
And they did it again and definitely ended up being late for their respective work places.
" Draco's going to ask me to move on with him " he suddenly told Hermione, not being able to keep it in anymore.
She gasped " what ?" Then broke into a huge grin
" I was wandering off in his kitchen last night and found a tiffany box with a key in it, so i think but I can't be sure and I am excited but I don't want to get too excited because you know I might have got it all wrong-"
" screw it he's gonna ask you to move in with him " Hermione immediately jumped up and hugged Harry who returned the hug just as affectionately.
" it makes sense you know then, everything- him cancelling plans" Hermione grinned excitedly after breaking apart.
" but we can't be too sure. I mean it's a possibility but-'
" yeah. If he asks you, act surprised" and she she clapped her hand together in excitement again. Harry ended up laughing with her and discussed all the time they were at the coffee shop about when and how he might ask Harry.
Despite Hermione's strict warning to keep it a secret and act natural, Harry couldn't help but smile each time his eyes laid on Draco and would end imagining all the scenarios about how he might ask him, anytime.
" Oh- Harry I forgot to tell you, my Mom's birthday coming up so I am buying her an apartment in central London, what do you think about that ?"Draco asked suddenly as he placed the bowl of spaghetti over bigger coaster and plates by the side.
" an apartment- oh- OH-" Harry face turned into a shock then disappointment upon connecting the dots that the key in the Tiffany box was actually for Narcissa " I- I think it's a lovely present "instead he fake grinned.
" I thought so too, it's the perfect apartment with enough sun light and well ventilation- it's absolutely perfect " Draco grinned.
Harry nodded abruptly immediately taking the plate from the table and immediately taking some of spaghetti in his plate.
" I'm sure it's gonna be great after all it's your choice " Harry gave him a neat smile before he picked up the remote and Turned on the TV and started watching to avoid Draco and thinking of how stupid it was to believe Draco would ask Harry to move in with him.
For the next few days only a couple before Christmas, Harry had visited Hogwarts for some work when he decided to surprise visit to Draco's room, but upon arrival he only heard harsh Whispers.
" You should've seen his face- I mean please He looked to hurt. I don't know how much longer can I hold onto this "
Harry frowned to himself, placing his ear more closely to the door.
" just trust the process Draco, you want it to be special right, then just trust me. He's gonna love it and he'll never deny it alright. Besides it's only a couple days later, just hold on alright. You love him right " a pause " and you want to live with him right" A pause again " then just 2 more days and then you can ask him and it'll finally be over "
" I swear to fucking Merlin I never saw the day would come when I'd take advice from a Weasley " Draco groaned and Harry just knew him too well that he knew Draco must be rolling off his eyes right now.
" Just till Christmas then you can do whatever with him. I'm just making it memorable for him okay. He's gonna love it " He who Harry knew by now was Ron, said.
" I'm gonna wreck your apartment if he doesn't agree to live with me after having practically ignored him all month. You should've seen him Ron- he's- Merlin'- I Love him and I can see it you know that it's hurting him and-"
" I know I know but I made him believe that teachers live's are hard so you're good "
" it better be "
And then in rushed Whispers Ron left the room claiming he needed to get back to work. This explained Ron's absence too from work and his weird faithful behaviour towards Draco. Harry immediately ran for the hallways and hid in one of the broom closet until he was sure Ron left and then finally visited Draco.
After everything he heard, he knew he never wanted to be with anyone more than Draco and there will never be Anyone who would love Harry more him and the thought made Harry so happy that he kept smiling to himself all day and prepared Draco's favourite dinner.
" I- I'm sorry I'm a bit late- wow- Do I smell curry ?" Draco hastily entered the kitchen.
" your favourite " Harry grinned as he leaned up a little and placed an open kiss on Draco's lips.
" What's the occassion?" Draco asked holding onto Harry's waist and stroking his cheek affectionately.
" I just love you that's why. Go freshen up though- I'll place the dinner in 5 minutes " Harry hastily said as he stirred the curry again.
'”oh and by the way Mom invited us for her party on her birthday and we'll give her the key but I'd like if you'd see it before I gave it to her as a present "
" okay " Harry smiled and soon enough Draco left the kitchen.
Within the next 10 minutes Draco and Harry were already sat in the living room, their legs crossed and eating peacefully watching TV together until Draco noticed Harry had been staring at him more than usual.
" what's up with you ? You've been looking at me all night, is there something on my face ?" Draco asked as he wiped his hands in napkin and reached for his face to examine if there was anything on it.
" why do you keep lying to me ?" Harry asked with a smile.
" what ? What makes you think I'm lying ?" Draco asked almost shocked, his ears turning a funny shade of pink like it did when he was flustered.
Harry smiled softly at Draco before he put his plate on the table and wiped his own hands with the napkin and scooted closer to Draco so he was sitting before him, face to face.
" I heard you and Ron today at your office"
Draco didn't reply, still lying that it wasn't what Harry knew it was.
" can you stop pretending please, it's killing me- I already found the Tiffany box in your kitchen " Harry grinned.
Draco wanted to keep up the facade of not being dazed by Harry at all but with a smile like Harry gave one, Nobody stood a chance.
" did you like it ?" Draco asked, talking Harry's hands in his own and tracing soft circles.
" I didn't see the apartment, I want to see it with you " Harry smiled, kissing Draco's knuckles.
Draco blushed naturally, nodding and agreeing that they'll see it soon then.
'" I had this whole thing planned, you know asking at the burrow in front of everyone, down on one knee " Draco groaned as he wrapped his arm around Harry shoulder and leaning his head over it.
" I don't care how fancy it all have to be you know. I Never cared about extravaganza, all I care is that I get to live with you and that I can't wait but if it means so much to you, you do it your way I'll act surprised " Harry chuckled, kissing Draco's ear.
" one problem though " Draco said
Harry moved away so he could see Draco clearly " what is it ?"
'" you're shit at acting "
Harry whined playfully hitting Draco with a pillow and turning into laughter. Eventually the night turned into a pillow fight and a lot of laughter and bunch of make out on the ground but as long as they were together, there was nothing that didn't make sense.
So 2 days after, Draco did get down on one knee at the burrow and asked Harry to move in with him, Harry acted surprised in the most natural way and answered a yes, making everyone hoot and cheering them on with opening bottle of champagne.
" you already knew, didn't you ?" Hermione asked
" Don't tell anyone that " Harry nodded and soon the night turned into how it always did, in laughter and love.

Can you please do a "how the hp boys will react if you said the safe word." ?
pairing(s): reader x literally everyone lol
warning(s): 18+, safe word use (duh), mentions of sex, mentions of kink, mentions of dom/sub dynamics
a/nL i included all the guys i’ve written for before so if you want to see anyone else just leave a request!
he’d panic...who are we kidding?
but he’d be so so sweet and he’d try so so hard to make it better
he’d literally pull out or stop whatever he was doing immediately
he wouldn’t know what to even say
he’d just end up cuddling with you and asking if you were okay a million times
he’d do surprisingly well in this situation
he’d be so calm and just try to talk you through it
all the cuddles in the world
like the biggest bear hug ever once you were okay with being touched
gets you all your comfort food and the warmest blanket he owns
you’d get the only sincere apology he’s ever given in his life
because he’s all jokes and a good time until his baby is hurting
he’d feel so bad but he’d try to have you laughing in no time
and probably succeed
he’d be gutted but he always knows exactly how to make you feel better
kinda similar to ron imo
he’d just be super sweet about the whole thing
telling you how good you were for using the safe word
and how good he feels that you trust him
and he’d cuddle you up all safe and tight
panic on the inside, holding it together on the outside
he’d be a wreck but his first priority is always you
asking if you were okay or if you needed anything a million times
and for way longer than he needs to
apologies all day the next day
drowns you in smiles and praises
telling you that you did the right thing
talking about what went wrong even if he knows exactly what happened
cuddles until you fall asleep
i could see this going so many ways
he’d either absolutely panic
scrambling to do everything to make you feel better all at once
to the point where you’d probably just start laughing
or he’d be incredibly calm
just talking you down and treating you like an absolute princess
mostly quiet and lets you work through it a bit
but he will not leave your side once for the rest of the night
super attentive to every need even if you don’t ask for it
just ends up being a quiet night with lots of cuddles
and tender kisses
young!sirius would absolutely panic
asking if you’re okay, what you need, apologizing profusely
cuddling up to you like an absolute puppy dog (pun intended)
post azkaban!sirius is a lot more confident in his abilities
calmly talking to you about it
praising you profusely
but the puppy dog eyes always stay the same
let’s be honest, young!remus would feel like the worst person on earth
you’d probably have to be the one to talk him down tbh
but he’d be super sweet and attentive
all the chocolate he owns is yours now
older!remus would still feel horrible
but he’d be much more put together about the whole thing
reading to you until you fall asleep on his chest
literally his son just more put together
stops whatever he’s doing and pulls himself together
and then he’s laser focused on you and only you
until he’s absolutely 100% sure you’re okay
and even after that tbh
sweetest baby ever so expect all the cuddles and i love you’s
this man does not do well with emotions
so don’t expect much tbh
but he would make sure you were okay
and make sure you had everything you needed
he’d mostly just be quiet until you felt better and then you’d talk about things
