This chapter was absolutely perfect and heart wrenching. I was crying by the time harry watched draco sleep. I can't wait for the next chapter.
Cruel and unusual punishment, this is.
I whole-heartedly agree!!! But, nevertheless, i loved it! They finally kissed! Dont let Draco be mad, get Glad! Lol. jk. but seriously. btw, I. HATE. GINNY. always have. and now you're making her the main reason they're not together! gr. please let the next chapter be up quicker than this one.
I'll be waiting. =]
*gasp* that was an amazing chapter! I like how you made Harry so hesitant about being gay. Other harry/draco fics just jump right along in assuming that they've been gay for forever. Its nice to read a fic where they have to discover themselves. I especially loved the part where draco said that he was "also in the process of finishing seven, nine, and twenty-two". And harry was like gasp! What?? Lol. My favorite. It was nice seeing an update. Keep it up!
Ugh, you tease! I almost died when Harry pushed Draco away! Cruel and unusual punishment, this is. I love the shaky affection they have for one another, and the mood swings are so canon you could be paid for this. Actually, I would have been much happier if DH had never happened and this had taken its place. This chapter (cruel and unusual though it was) was absolute amazing, like all of the others. I can't wait for the next chapter! Please hurry!
You know I normally don't like Slash fics and especially ones with Harry and Draco but I am hooked on this one. Maybe it's because you aren't making it smutty like any others I've stumbled on, but please keep it up it is great
Oh, I hope this story has a happy ending. While I think Harry/Draco stories are hot, I don't think in general that Harry and Draco are good for romance, in the way JKR wrote them. I think they were written to be two versions of the same person: both the only offspring of high profile wizerding couples with their own histories, one shunned and ignored as an orphan child, the other elevated pompously while still being somewhat emotionally abused or manipulated by his death eater family. They both are smart but rely on friends to compensate for their own weaknesses. They both are loyal and easy to anger, passionate, etc. Anyway, what I am getting to is that your story characterizes what I am talking about perfectly. Like I said, I love reading the hot possibilities of HD romance but your description of their growing friendship is more true to the books than anything else I have read. And yes, I hope for some HD hotness in your story (and a happy ending...did I already request that??) even if it should be unlikely based on JKR's work.
Im gonna go crazy w/out the next chapter! It's been over two weeks!
I absolutely love this story!
oh annie you're killing me!!
when's the next chapter coming out?!?
it better be like ten thousand words long!!
you owe us that much for the wait!!!!!!
(i think i'm like addicted to this story or something...)
Hello, Annie! Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the way your writing style has improved over the years...I am quite knew to this HP books and fanfics and I've only read a few, 3 amongst which are yours and if I may say you have travelled a long way since "the sweetest seen" for example. This fanfic is Great, even if I'am not into this kind of pairing. The plot and the story itself make the pairing seem almost possible.
But then again, I'all be sad when Malfoy is going to die again, 'cause he always seems to die in your stories...even if he is a worthless character in the original HP books, I'am growing slightly fond of him!
Anyway, looking forward to the next update,
Love this fic. I love how you bring the two of them together slowly. Draco jealous of Ginny- sweet! Why can't harry just admit his feelings? Keep writing, i'll be waiting for an update :)
I really love your work. I've been dutifully reading this story since it was first published. I can't wait to see what Harry or Draco will reveal once they've ha da few! lol.
Yay for them liking each other! And I love how Draco acted towards Pansy! Lovely lovely chapter!
OH. MY. GOD.
