In the Summer before Sixth Year, Harry gets a job as an assistant to a carpenter. Harry is soon called away but not before he completes an unusual apprentice piece. After surviving an examination review, an encounter with an Unspeakable and a hunting trip with Hagrid, Harry's optimism for the new school year is sorely tested by Ron and by something Moody describes as "lethal and completely unsuitable for teaching a young would-be Auror. Right up your street Potter, Eh?"
After she had just thrown her intended date out, Hermione is pleasantly surprised when Harry turns up to take her out to a birthday dinner. Claiming that Ron has forbidden him to return home before dawn, Harry admits that unknown to almost everyone he has finally got himself a job she might approve of and attempts to use an echoing tune from their past to confess something more. Post Hogwarts.

They couldn’t get it right, they had to be crazy. It was a no-win situation. How can they start over when the fighting never ends? They were suppose to hate each other. They were kidding themselves. How could they be lovers when they couldn’t even be friends?

Hermione doesn't like art, but Harry does. They meet, and things change for them.
