Pairing: HP/LM Rating: R Warning: Slash, angst, M/M, Mpreg, Character death Disclaimer: all characters from Harry Potter belong to JK Rowling and Warner Brothers. I'm just an obsessed maniac who is also an insomniac thanks to the voices in her head. Archived: ask please Feedback: Desperately needed. A/N: Harry is a little OOC and so is Lucius in this fic 'cos well, I needed them to be a little out of character to fit with my insane musings. Basically, I base this whole fic on the assumption that Lucius is a spy for Dumbledore. He and Draco are actually very loving if not a little egoistical and have superiority complexes the size of Mars. Other then that, well, they are decent people who have to play roles in the society they live in. Also, Narcissa lovers, Don't read this fic 'cos I am making her EVIL!!! My first try at something like this so please, go easy, I know there are mistakes. Let me know and I will try to fix them. Ummm. think that's it for now, so. on with the fic!

Harry James Potter, the Boy-Who-Lived sat alone in the last compartment of the Hogwarts Express. The 17 year-old young man barely resembled the scrawny little kid who stepped on to the train almost six years ago. His messy black hair is no longer as messy, with a silver thong tying back the shoulder-length hair, the thick glasses was replaced by contacts sometime over the summer, showing of his brilliant green eyes more vividly. No longer scrawny, his physique had broadened out over the summer as well, hardened muscles visible through the tight silky long sleeve shirt he wore. Many students didn't even recognize him as they looked for an empty compartment for the ride to Hogwarts. In fact, although the compartment was empty but for him, many were too wary to approach him because of the vibrant green tree viper curled around his neck. And so, Harry sat alone, staring out the window and smiling slightly at his own thoughts while waiting for the train to pull out of the station.

His musings though, were interrupted by the arrival of his two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, their voices echoing through the corridor of the train.

" Where can he be? He hasn't replied any of our owls this summer and didn't even turn up at Diagon Alley as usual. He only sent me one lousy owl with one short line saying he won't be able to make it to the Burrow and then nothing. No reason, no explanation. You don't think the Death Eaters could have gotten hold of him do you? I mean, I know Voldemort's dead and all but the headmaster did say something about being on our guard for attacks still. Hermione, where do you think he is?" a familiar voice could be heard together with the shutting and opening of compartment doors across the hallway from his.

'Looks like Ron's of into another one of his rants again, boy is he going to be in for a shock,' Harry absently thought as he opened his own compartment door, stuck his head out and hailed his friends.

True enough, Harry spent most of the ride to Hogwarts explaining his changed appearance to his friends. " Yes Hermione, these are contacts, yes I got them over the summer, and yes Ron, my new pet, his name is Xsssixssor, a birthday present. Thanks for your gifts, sorry I didn't write, but I needed the time this summer to well, recuperate and just spend some time alone with my love ones. Yes, Hermione, I did meet someone over the summer and we love each other very much" The conversation basically went in that manner with Harry answering as many questions as possible with out giving out too much detail.

And now, the Golden Trio sat in the great hall, waiting for the sorting to end and the start of the feast. However, none of the seventh year Gryffindors were paying much attention as almost all of them were fascinated by Harry's new appearance. Suddenly, Hermione, who had been sitting quietly for most of it, noticed a startling fact as he waved his left hand about, trying to assure Dean and Seamus that Xsssixssor was harmless unless provoked. She saw a ring on Harry's finger! A gorgeous platinum diamond wedding ring!! Surprised and shocked, she scrutinized Harry again and noticed more irregularities, such as the almost imperceptible glow that seemed to surround him, how happy he looked, how content. That coupled together with the new changes he had went through as well as the expensive new things he was wearing, Hermione made up her mind. She leaned in and whispered into Harry's ear, " Harry, you didn't by any chance get married over the summer did you?" she asked, half afraid to hear the answer and yet happy for her best friend. She knew he had had a horrible life so far and felt that he deserved some happiness in his life.

Instead of the shocked expression she half expected Harry to show though, all he did was look at her knowingly and said, " I knew you would be the first one to notice 'Mione, sorry I didn't tell you and Ron earlier but we wanted it to be a surprise, you'll find out who and how later, I promise you. Don't worry, I'll explain everything later ok?"

Stunned, even though she more or less expected the answer, Hermione could do nothing else but nod her head in agreement and pray that Ron would not react badly when he heard the news.

Finally, nearing the end of the feast, the doors to the great hall banged open and in strode Lucius Malfoy. At the first sounds of the door opening, almost all students third year and up had stood, wands drawn, ready to face whatever threat that might have entered their school. A noticeable exception was Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter; the two sat calmly eating, apparently oblivious to the newcomer.

For his part, Lucius just stood there, head held proud as he faced the thousand or so wands that were pointed at him. "Excellent reflexes Albus, it will be interesting to see in the course of the new semester." Lucius's voice rang out through the big room.

At this, most of the students realized that their Professors had not reacted in any way and their headmaster was smiling down at the new arrival. Slowly, they sheathed their wands and sat back down, resuming their talking and their eating.

Lucius smiled at his son then, and proceeded to walk towards the head table, nodding at the professors and taking a seat towards the end, next to Severus Snape.

Seeing him seated, Albus Dumbledore then rose and began his usual welcome to Hogwarts speech. Many of the students tuned out only listening with half an ear to see if the headmaster would explain the presence of a former death eater in the school. Towards the end of the speech, everyone's attention was captured as Dumbledore uttered the magic words, ". and now, I am sure many of you here are wondering about the presence of Mr. Malfoy, or should I say Professor Malfoy. Before I say anything further, I would like to inform all of you here, that although many think he was a Death Eater, Lucius was in fact a spy for the order and his help was instrumental in the destruction of lord Voldemort. With that said, he has gladly agreed to become this years DADA teacher, after much persuasion from his Husband and I. He will be residing in the dungeons, together with his new husband, and I hope you will respect their privacy and welcome them to Hogwarts with open arms." Thus, Dumbledore ended the feast and sent them of to bed.

Of course, none of the students moved, too stunned to do anything but sit back and wonder, " Husband? I wonder who would marry him? Do you think its Snape? He lives in the dungeons." Comments like those were thrown around as the whole school speculated on the strange turn of events. At the Slytherin table, Draco Malfoy was bombarded by questions from his housemates, all demanding to know whom his new father was. Shaking his head, Draco denied all their attempts and smirked to himself.

Finally, deciding to end their torture, Lucius Malfoy rose from his seat and walked towards the Gryffindor table, towards Harry Potter specifically. Giving Hermione a speaking look, Harry rose from his seat and accepted the outstretched hand proffered by his husband. To the absolute silence of the entire great hall, the new couple bowed to the crowd, collected their son, and regally walked out of the room.
