    Summary

    Marlene McKinnon is a mess. She can’t sleep, she’s almost certainly going to fail all her NEWTs, and she’s 99% sure that if they don’t win the Quidditch Cup this year James Potter will throw himself headfirst off the Astronomy Tower. On top of all that, there’s a war on, yet their professors seem determined to pretend that the biggest problem any of them are facing is finding a Ministry internship. Marlene’s final year at Hogwarts has barely started, and she’s already pretty sure it couldn’t get any worse—that is, until she shows up for her first Potions class and hears the assignment.
    ///
    Dorcas Meadowes is a stone-cold bitch. At least, that’s what everyone says. She doesn’t need well-meaning professors or overeager classmates or teammates or boyfriends or friends. She doesn’t need anything except to be left alone, the way she likes, until the day she finally leaves school. And she certainly doesn’t need Marlene McKinnon, with her sharp tongue and her snorting laugh and her stupid shiny hair, who seems intent on ruining everything that Dorcas has been working towards for the past two years.

    Summary

    Hermione Granger has finally decided to pursue a new dream after working far too long in a desk position at the Ministry. After picking up potions as a hobby on the advice of her therapist, the response to her domestic brews had been so overwhelming it almost didn't make sense for her not to open the shop. So the Olive Branch Apothecary was born. Although it was going quite well, everything gets thrown for a loop when her storefront / apartment is sold out from underneath her by her retiring landlord. When the dust settles, Hermione finds herself relying on an unexpected client.

    Summary

    "We're such fucking 'holics."

    Hermione drags her blurry gaze away from the page in front of her and tried to focus on the girl sitting next to her instead. Maybe if she squints she'll see more clearly.

    "What?"

    "You and your work. Me and this," Pansy waves her now-empty goblet for emphasis. "Holics."

    "Holics," Hermione agrees.

    Or

    Pansy only talks to Hermione when she's drunk. Hermione only talks to Pansy when she's sleep deprived and exhausted from over-working herself. This leads to a few encounters over the years but comes to a head in 8th year as they both turn to unhealthy comping mechanisms to escape the horror of everything they've lived through since Voldemort's rise. Somewhere in this mess though, they somehow begin to help each other, and when they're both 'clean', maybe they can finally focus on the feelings that have been building between them all these years.

    Fair warning, it's really slow burn. Soz lads.
