Hermione and Drao return to Hogwarts for seventh year, and both feel the sparks of an unsual attraction to someone they did not except and willfully deny. Draco realizes the privillage he enjoyed before the war is not so present in its aftermath.
Hermione experiences a familiarly sarcastic, yet oddly polite Malfoy, who wants a partner on a project. It's ok that it's a secret though, right?

Hermione is released from the hospital wing, but finds that she's not as recovered as she thought, landing herself in a dangerous situation with an unlikely rescuer.
Draco is frusterated at Granger's stubborness, and on edge about a particularly keen-eyed friend who's noticed far more than he'd like. Hermione tries to reconcile Malfoy's concern for her wellbeing with the equally arrogant and quick to anger boy she's always known.
Hermione remembers that there's another relationship she ought to be focusing on, while Draco tries to dispel advances of his own. This is is made rather difficult by the passing of notes in class.

Sparks fly and tempers flare when Hermione and Draco run into a pack of Gryffindors on their way back to the Castle. Relationships can only take so much strain before they start to crack.
Hermione tries to convince her friends to see reason in the aftermath of the argument, while Draco tries to help his house understand life is very different for him, and all of them, post-war, and moving on is a good idea. This is especially relavent when he wishes to go to the library without an entourage--unfortunally Blaise Zabini didn't get the memo.
Hermione and Ron finally have it out, and it goes about as well as The Talk ever does. That is to say, not great.
Breaking up is hard to do...
You think you have problems? Try being Draco Malfoy. If he retaliates against Weasley for taking out his frustrations with Granger on those of Slytherin house, his still tenuous friendship with Hermione could splinter all together; but his pride in both his house and himself can't allow the boy to just get away his actions. And speaking of Granger, why can't he stop thinking of the way she looked when she ran away from him in the library? Could she ever truly trust a man like him?
Ron is bitter. Hermione is heartbroken. Lavender is suspicious. Ginny is bracing. And Draco is confused. With emotions running high, can he make himself heard through the fray?
