This is list of fanfiction that starts up after Deathly Hallows and has Harry and Draco returning to Hogwarts to complete their schooling. Technically, it's their 7th year – at least for Harry, who never went to school in the 7th book – but the fics are dubbed as "8th year".
I've tried to include all stories I can find as long as they appear to be of decent quality and are not really short (under 2,000 words). If you know of a fanfiction missing that is Harry/Draco in pairing and involves their 8th year at some point and/or 8th year plays an important part in the story, please let me know. I'd love to add more stories to this list!
What this list will not include:
- Stories about rebuilding Hogwarts, at least not exclusively, they must also be doing some form of schooling.
- Stories where they have just finished 8th year, unless 8th year was very important to the story and/or there are flashbacks to it.
- Stories just before their 8th year, including fics that only take place on the Hogwarts Express as they're returning to school.
♥ - This marks a fanfiction as a story I have read, enjoyed and recommend reading.
WIP - This stands for Work in Progress, meaning the last time I checked the fanfiction was incomplete.
