Dean Thomas and Harry Potter start a leisure business for wizards that specializes in giving tours of muggle London. Everything goes well until they receive a booking neither one of them wants to take. Harry embarks upon what he suspects will be the worst trip of his life.
When Dean and Harry started the idea of muggle-style holiday adventures for wizards, they hadn't expected it to catch on so well. What ensues is a fascinating, often hilarious take on how wizards might view the Muggle world.
Under the duress of their Aunt Gliese, who believes her relatives need a lesson in tolerance, the Malfoys arrive at P&T at Diagon Alley. Harry is horrified to discover that he'll be bringing them around London -- or more likely, waiting on them on hand and foot. Draco's obviously miserable at the arrangement, but Aunt Gliese is a force unto herself, and our heroes soon learn to get along with each other -- and then some.
[A quote I enjoyed]
“What is that?” Draco pointed at the digital alarm clock as though it were offensive.
“That’s a clock,” Harry said as though it were obvious.
“It’s blinking. And it’s bright,” Draco said. “And it has no hands.”
"You can unplug it if you don’t like it,” Harry shrugged.
“I noticed all of these things had strings tying them to the wall,” Draco knelt down and yanked the plug free, effectively extinguishing the clock. “I assumed it was an attempt to keep people from stealing your furniture.”
This is at times amusing, fascinating (seeing all the Muggle objects through new eyes!), sometimes heartbreaking, and overall sweet fic. A lovely read.
