Harry always thought he had a pretty satisfying array of sexual fantasies, until he stumbles upon the Mirror of Erised again and sees himself getting banged senseless by Draco Malfoy. Now he can't stop thinking about it, and that summer almost twenty years ago when he'd come to know Malfoy very well indeed.
Why you want to read this: This is beautiful. And so well written that I barely even noticed how smutty the fic is (I usually skip the smutty parts of fic). I love Harry, almost fifty, figuring out what he wants and where he belongs (though he knew all along), and wanting to rekindle what he had with Draco in the past. I love how easy their relationship with each other was/is, despite (or because of?) everything. I love how calm this fic is, how it just flows. I love Harry's friendship with ginny, even though they're finalising their divorce. I love Harry's friendships. I love his bees and his connection with them. This is a magical fic and a magical read, and it's an instant favourite. A real treat.
