Older Hermione & Draco Recs

'Older' is a rather flexible concept. Mostly what I was going for in these fic recs was a few things: Draco and Hermione being in their thirties or forties and the story being about a transitional period in their lives. The majority of fics about them seem to be set at Hogwarts or during their twenties, and while I love those fics, it's also nice to read about them during a different stage of their lives. The age, while a loose criteria, was less important than the sense that they were adults at a cross-road in their lives.

Ratings are AO3-style: General Audiences, Teen, Mature, Explicit
