Warning(s): Top!Draco, implications of marathon sex, some afterglow wallowing, and a little bit of gratuitous arse shots.

Word Count: I...didn't count.
Artist's Notes: First of all, a major thanks to the grace and tolerance of the magnificent mods for putting up with me. I'm in awe of all you do and I thank you for doing this fest for us all. shantismurf, I did my best to include at least some of the stuff you asked for and I hope you enjoy the final result.

A note on the scenario set-up: The Veela Sanctuary of this story is completely enclosed and filled with anti-magic wards (so no spells can be cast while within the forest but items like heat charmed blankets can come in handy).

Oh, my god. Sexy, adorable, funny, sweet. I love the panel where Draco is pulling up Harry "places to be". We are not worthy. Pansy and Ron were fantastic, too.

No words. Just, gah, perfect. Draco as Veela was beautiful, but the panel when they are feather-free and chest to chest... Mmmm, lovely. Harry was enderaring in his devotion. And I also really liked your Pansy (great bob and boobs!). This was sweet, and funny, and hot too - wonderful!

WOW! Fabulous XD Veela!Draco is super hot, and their mating scenes were super hot. And the feather hug was super hot. And the morning after was super hot. THIS WAS JUST ALL AROUND SUPER HOT! <3

And it was adorable and sweet, and romantic and lovey, and funny with Ron and Pansy :P

Oh, Mystery Artist (Not!), you are awesome. Fun and entertaining as ever! Love Veela Draco and his Mate! The Veela, the owl, the Harry, the warm shagged out afterglow, the too-much-information!Ron!...

I love Pansy in this. Her trying to rile up Ron on purpose. *cackles*

And I love Harry looking for Draco and pretty much making up for lost time to "bond." Perfect, dear "mystery artist." :)

Adorable! Love how vulnerable Draco is as a Veela and how extreme and unfiltered his emotions are.

Oh! Oh my god! I am...wow! I asked for either long fic or Draco with wings and I got a freaking amazing HUGE comic AND omg feral!Draco...it's like you reached into my brain and made the perfect Veela!Draco. His hair, the pinfeathers, the wings!! The crests around his ears made him so ethereal and all the little trills and chirps made his movement and posture come to life in my mind. I especially loved sniffing scene and I will pretend he wasnt wearing pants lol The panel with him up in a tree was so amazing. It was so much more than I could have imagined! I really loved human!Draco too, the blushes, his sharp but mature features, his awesome hair! I would love to make that "feather free" panel into an icon and use it everywhere :) Ron and Pansy as Auror partners is just brilliant! You captured their personalities and dynamic perfectly, and I really do love your take on Auror robes. I do recognize your work from the hd_fanart fest, and I am so so honored that you did this for me!! I'm going to go read it about a million more times!

I am still swooning over this. I love the bruises and love bites all over Harry's shoulders, and I am having an impossible time picking between the nuzzling or the chest to chest smile as my favorite. Or maybe my favorite is 21 with the blush, or 22 with the claws and the longing, or 23 with the...guh, everything! I just love them all!
