Harry & Draco head!canon!

Ever since eidheann_writes made her post about The Formation of head-canon, I've been thinking about it and wanting to do my own post.

The thing is, like hers, my head-canon is very fluid.

I do have my own personal ideas of how Harry and Draco are, they would act and even look, but the bottom line is, if a story is well written, I enjoy it even if I don't fundamentally believe Harry and Draco grew up to be that way, you know?

I like not having a specific, clear-cut, precise headcanon for Harry and Draco. I feel it gives me liberty to enjoy different characterisations of them and love them because of the story I'm being told.

So, for the most part, I tend to believe Harry and Draco are this way or that way, except when I don't.

Continuing with birdsofshore's Rectober Celebration, this post comes with Recs.


My headcanon Draco is a bit broken Post-war, he's down on his luck but still a bit prickly:

The Shoemaker and the Elves by icmezzo
Draco, The Magic Dragon by libby_drew
Every You, Every Me by daftfear
Some Kind Of Wonderful by taradiane

My headcanon Harry definitely has issues Post war, and he needs help:

On A Clear Day by saras_girl
Ain't No Friend Of Mine by lettered
Holly and Hawthorn, Thistle and Thyme by bryoneybrynn
A Piercing Comfort by talithan
But, In Dreams by kedavranox
Prickles On The Outside by curia_regis

Except when he's a confident and a brilliant Auror:

When Hearts Are Freed by oldenuf2nb
Luck of the Devil by melusinahp

And Harry is definitely well hung:

Big Dick, Come Quick by calanthe_fics
Damned If You Do... by tigersilver

But he's a bit of a fashion disaster:

This Summer by saras_girl

Also, my headcanon Harry is great with children:

Cupid by cutecoati

Except when he isn't:

A Matter of PreText, ConText, and Misconceptions by laciudad

I think Draco always knew he was gay, or at least he was aware of his feelings for Harry:

Fool Rushes In by oldenuf2nb
Hissy Fit by dysonrules
Four Paper Dragons by tracy & starlitshore
Small Spaces and Pantsless Potters by badjujuboo

Sometimes he's even obsessed, though he justifies this with Draco!Logic:

Why Draco Malfoy Failed His Sixth Year by faithwood
Being Jessie Carmichael (Or How to Woo Harry Potter in Three Hours) by faithwood
How to Shag Your Most Hated Enemy ...and Still Feel Alright About it, You Know, Morally Speaking by stellabelle
The Simple Joy of Living by mahaliem

Except when he is in total denial about the whole thing:

One Harry Potter, Please (If Possible, Seduced and Ready) by faithwood
Before We Get Too Old by tracy &starlitshore
What's New, Buenos Aires? by kedavranox

I think Harry was taken by surprise once he figured it out:

Legs of Distraction (Or How Draco Got Promoted Three and A Half Separate Times) by olimakiella
Master Work by mahaliem
The Incredible Race by dysonrules
Stain of Silence by brummell

And sometimes it was the hardest thing for him to accept it:

The Perfect Husband by curlee_cue

The boys might have a rocky start, but their relationship blooms:

Ask Again Later by sara_holmes
To Create A Life by ravenpan
The Arrangement Series by rurounihime
It Never Occurred to Me That I Would Fall in Love With a Frenchman by lamerezouille

Except when they have a really rocky start:

The Third by samaelthekind

And they have to work very hard through their issues to make it work:

My Own Worst Enemy by dysonrules
A Hundred Visions and Revisions by oflights
Unkissed Kisses and Songs Never Sung by femmequixotic
A Day at the Park by taradiane
“I’d Rather Change Nappies Than Have My Cock Sucked” and Other Ravings of a Pregnant Wizard by frayach

Mpreg happens. Oh yes. For reasons, okay?:

I prefer pregnant Draco:
The Blame Game by eidheann_writes
If Wishes Were Children by oldenuf2nb
Delaney by rurounihime
The Curse by roedhunt
Some Kind Of Wonderful by taradiane
Yours, Bunny-eared, and Candy-sweet by PaolaAdara

Except when Harry gets pregnant:
Bloodsquib by vaysh
The Silent World Within You by femmequixotic & noeon
Labour of Love by coffeejunkii
One of Your Fathers by dacro And various other authors, as they follow on the story link.

And yeah, sometimes they are part creature (It happens, too!):

Specially Draco being part Veela:
The Weight of Eternity by envy_venis
The Ugly Duckling by icmezzo

Except when Harry is part Veela:
High Priced by dysonrules

Or when Harry or Draco were turned into a werewolf:

Harry:
Burning the Ground by traintracks
The Arc of the Pendulum by brummell

Draco:
Savage by marguerite_26

Or Both:
Rejoicing in Their Strength & sequel Eyes That Can See in the Dark
I Was A Teenage Werewolf! by treacle_tartlet

And if they did marry other people, they found a way to each other in the end:

Turn by saras_girl
Players by ishafel
Homecoming by novembersnow
Father Of The Bride by novembersnow

Please check for warnings on the stories linked above!


So yeah, my head canon is all over the place, I admit. :D

Wow. This entry ended up taking entirely too long to write. XD Now I want to do this FanArt. Oh, that'll be fun!
