Wee talking Draco Malfoy.

This is the funnest waste of time ever and it is all because of fiendling: Little DWACO talks about little boy things.

When I was small I liked to imagine that all my favorite historical figures (real ones or ones from books or movies) could come forward in time and meet me, and I could show them all the neat technology that they never had, and they would be so impressed with me! I am surprised I never wrote a story like that. I have lots of old stories, but I tended to write about my cat and his cat friend or about aliens. Never about people. But I always thought about people and I was always in my imagined stories, showing people things and being amused at their wild or confused reactions (my own Mary Sue stories! <3).

Perhaps that is why I enjoy fics wherein the wizard who has never been to the Muggle world is forced to go live there. They are very interesting. The same goes the other way around with Muggles in the Wizarding world. That is part of the charm of Book 1, Harry's learning of this entire new place, with people and words and gadgets and subjects and food he'd never dreamed could have existed. Mmm. It dwindles through the books, of course, as he gets used to the Wizarding world. I want to reread the first book now. But first I will search for stories of the sort.

When you find some, could you rec them? I always love those kinds too, and I'm sure there's some out there that I've missed. Thanks!

When you find those, could you list them here? I always like that kind of story, and I'm sure I've missed some!

One that's just a nice, solid, warm and fuzzy sort of H/D like that is Welcome to the Real World, on FF.net, which is currently messed up so it's not going to give me the addy to link to at the moment. It's not very groundbreaking, but it does have the Draco-settling-into-Harry's-adult-muggle-life bit, and it's just damn cute. Yeah.

Yes, I will mention anything I find (when/if that occurs!).

Thanks! I read that one a while back, though I don't know if it has been updated since the last time I looked. :)

I think so, because it was finished the last time I read it. It ends kind of abruptly - I think the author likes writing H/D in their own world rather than back in the wizarding one, which is where it has to go to resolve the plot. :)

That's right! It's finished, yes. I noticed a little 'Complete' tag (or something similar) in its ff.net summary; but I am so bad at doing things I tell myself I will do--I haven't got around to reading the rest of it in about two or three months. I am ashamed! I need a nice long vacation devoted solely to fanfic. I will write myself a little schedule of things to accomplish.
