(Highlight to View) Prompt: Severus, the war hero, has a built up a reputation for bedding many witches and brags about his seduction skills to Draco. Draco bets Severus he can't bed the next witch who walks through the door at (your choice of location), and they agree to the bet. Coincidentally, Hermione Granger walks in.
Note: See end notes at the bottom of Part Three.
Summary: The war is but a memory. Draco successfully organizes conferences the world over, and unsuccessfully tries to hold together his father's mental health and his godfather's desultory moods. Snape is worn by too much female attention, not enough intellectual challenges, and not knowing why his former Apprentice all but disappeared from the Wizarding World... Draco thought he'd have to challenge Snape's interest in the scientific conference by having him room next to a stunning Spanish redhead researcher, but even exclusive conferences by the Black Sea are not immune from modern age terrorism and Nazi bunkers, and that's interest enough. And into their posh hotel by the blue waters walks Granger, complete with Harvard doctorate and Tibetan monk fighting skills, but incomplete in terrifying other ways.
