Harry had long since weaned Draco away from his reliance upon Potions.
Oh, not in that sense: Draco had never abused Potions in the common sense: he thought it infra dig, for one, and, of course, Draco loathed, feared, the least prospect of his losing or risking loss of control (save, of course, in bed, with Harry).
No, Draco had simply been too reliant upon resort to Potions rather than Charms or Transfiguration when he wanted a magical solution to a difficulty. Until Harry had … taken him in hand.
After all, one couldn’t very well go about surreptitiously collecting the exuviæ of innocent and unsuspecting Muggles simply because Draco had fallen prey to one of his little pashes. Crushes. Fantasies.
This time, it hadn’t even wanted the end of the cricketing year for Draco to succumb to a sudden, giddy – and, although Harry was too wise to say it aloud, unbearably cute – pash upon a footballer. Partly this was because Draco had become so sick of listening to Boycs doing his Greatest Living Yorkshireman turn that he’d actually left off following cricket for the sake of his blood pressure. Mostly it was because Spurs had signed for development yet another Balkan prospect.
Harry preferred not to consider Snape in any such light – a man wants to keep his luncheon down – but he remembered perfectly well how Draco (as well as Hermione, and indeed – although this was never mentioned – Ron) had blushed and panted through parted lips and generally shown every sign of gagging for it, what time Viktor Krum had first swum into their ken. Coy looks with heart-sore sighs….
Harry was simply glad that he managed to incarnate much of Draco’s preferences – dark and lean – whilst avoiding being possessed of The Nose that was a feature of Draco’s Venus Pandemos (well, Eros Pandemos, given Draco’s considerable preference for lads over lasses, Aster not withstanding).
Yet it was no hardship to cater to his lover’s little quirks. The more so as Draco, like Ginny before him, would never stray, if for no other reason than that he’d not wish to cut an undignified figure or give anyone a handle against him. And with the steady development in useful Charms and Glamours after the War, Polyjuice need no longer be employed when Harry indulged Draco in his fantasies and celebrity and sporting crushes.
Besides, the young signing now spending a period in the Third Year Academy before moving on to White Hart Lane … had a very nice body to inhabit for a few hours. Harry ran his hands down the borrowed, replicated torso of Danilo Zuric. Had he been so taut and lithe at that age? He knew he’d not been so tall, although it was comforting to know that he’d been and remained a trifle better provided in the lunchbox….
But – even with youth’s resilience and ability to, ah, recharge with celerity – it was best to Save This for Draco. Harry posed himself carefully, recreating that rather warm publicity shot that had first caused Draco to notice the young striker. Then he sent a quick Patronus message to a pining and soon to be agreeably surprised Draco, and cast his wand from him, and waited.
Come on, you Spurs, he thought, and suppressed a smile.

Harry's so considerate!

Really sweet, actually. The story, and the lover. Though I think "lunchbox" must be a local term? Or merely a new one? (As compared to me, I mean.)

Being, as I have been, a pedant from the cradle…

I cannot but notice that the Romans, at least, recognized (or, rather, were avid after, some of them anyway) a 'male Venus', to say nothing of Venus Callipyge, there being no reason in the world that the arse in question need be a female one.

But that is to go beyond even my own very wide bounds in giving Harry a post-Hogwarts education of any moment.
