LONDON — During a special holiday event for St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, Draco Malfoy announced that he had successfully created a potion to help those who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Although the specifics of the potion are confidential, Malfoy let it be known that the ingredients are similar to those found in stress-relieving tea. He will be donating his time and money to the research facility at St Mungo's.

When questioned, Mr Malfoy stated that it was due to personal circumstances that he took on the task of creating this tea-like substance.

"Growing up in the middle of the Second Wizarding War took its toll on all that were involved. For the past twenty years, individuals have suffered from the effects unable to find relief. I have several friends and family members that will benefit from the creation of this tea and the continued research within St Mungo's," Malfoy said.

Harry Potter, savior of the Wizarding World, sat down for an interview about the new research facility.

"I am over the moon about the research facility. I have a close friend who has suffered greatly since the end of the war. Not only will it benefit her, but several others who have suffered as well. I am truly grateful for the world Mr. Malfoy has put into this project," Potter said. When asked about the identity of his friend, he refused to comment.

Research within the closed ward in St Mungo's will start at the beginning of February with Malfoy leading the project.

LONDON — Hermione Granger has been found residing in Brighton under the name Mia Gordon, running a bookshop. According to several sources, Granger has transferred ownership of the shop to associate and close friend, Pansy Parkinson. Reporters flocked the doors of the shop on Monday to find out why.

"I am moving to a small cottage in the Scottish Highlands with my boyfriend," Granger said. "I have been good friends with Pansy for a long time and trust her to take care of the bookshop. I am excited to embark on this new journey."

Pansy Parkinson was unavailable for comment, but Granger was seen leaving the bookshop with a blonde-haired man assumed to be Draco Malfoy.

"Looks like we made the cover," Draco chuckled as Hermione picked up the magazine. She rolled her eyes as she turned to the article inside.

"A blond - haired man assumed to be Draco Malfoy," she read out loud, before tossing the article on the coffee table, tucking her feet up as she reached for the steaming mug of hot chocolate Draco handed to her. Settling on the sofa next to her, he pulled her feet out from under her causing her to giggle, laying them in his lap.

"You want to watch one of those black and white movies you love?" he asked her as he began to massage her feet.

"That would be lovely. One with a happy ever after," Hermione commented as she took a sip of hot chocolate, marshmallow coating her upper lip. She gave Draco a playful kick as he laughed at her, rising to put the DVD in the player.

"What about you, did you find your happy ever after?" he asked as she placed her mug on the coffee table before curling into Draco. He dropped a kiss to her forehead as he pressed play on the remote.

"You know what, I think I did," Hermione replied with a contented sigh.
