Author's Notes: thusspakekate, I hope you enjoy this! I tried to hit as many of your likes as I could, but I'm sure I didn't get them all. I did want to make sure I included Pansy Parkinson, since I see that she's one of your faves. Hopefully, I did her justice! Title of story from poem below:

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” Pablo Neruda

What an enjoyable read! Your Narcissa, Lucius, and Pansy were all great. Ron, too. You had a great balance of funny, sweet, and angsty. Such a pleasure to read and very satisfying.
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 26th, 2013 03:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'm so glad that you enjoyed it!

Lovely and fun! :)
Lucius and Narcissa made me smile, as did Pansy. :)
And of course Harry and Draco are perfect together. *petst them*
Nice job!

Oh anonymous author, that was wonderful! Simply delightful. Thank you!

The opening scene was perfect and I found myself laughing throughout the entire thing. This had a great balance of humor, angst, and heart. I loved Draco, so smug and confident, yet so off-base about how much he actually meant to Harry. And Harry, with his false Gryffindor bravado and secret pining. I loved Narcissa and Lucius too, so perceptive about those quidditch magazines. I'm glad to see that they love their son enough to let him follow his heart. Just think of how all that heartbreak could have been avoided if those Malfoys knew how to speak openly with each other. And thank you for including Pansy, you are quite right, she is one of my favorites and I'm always happy see her get some in her own right. I hope Neville treats her right!

Oh, and the desk sex! The desk sex! *fans self* Draco coming all over Harry's work is priceless.

Thank you so much!

Happy Christmas/Holidays to you!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 26th, 2013 03:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am equally thrilled and relieved that you liked this! I always worry that the recipient of my gift will be like 'what the hell is this crap?', LOL. I've become a fan of a loving Malfoy family recently and couldn't resist adding them in there. I also love Pansy as Draco's bestie, so that worked out well with your likes, too. (and yes, Neville will practically worship the ground she walks on, I'm sure!) I'm so happy that you liked the desk sex scene, as I was rather happy with the way that turned out, so I'm glad it worked for you!

Thanks so much for your kind words, and I hope that your holidays were blessed with happiness!

Who would've thought Lucius would be so understanding?
Very hot office sex! Loved.
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 26th, 2013 03:39 pm (UTC)
I've always liked the trope that, in the end, Lucius cares for his family more than anything else. Glad you liked it!
robinellen: owlrobinellen on December 24th, 2012 02:25 am (UTC)
This is great -- I always enjoy some angst before the hea :) I love how both Lucius and Narcissa support Draco in the end too!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 26th, 2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
My favorite kind of story both to read and to write is angst with a happy ending, so I'm glad that you enjoyed it!
vampisandi: vampisandivampisandi on December 24th, 2012 03:58 am (UTC)
Draco is an arse, he is lucky that Harry loves him so much.
Nice story!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks for reading! Draco wasn't so much an arse, as maybe a bit insecure, but yes, he is lucky that Harry loves him!

Great story! The angst and humor were perfect. Haha, Quidditch magazines :)
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Draco thought he was so clever, but mum and dad saw right through him, LOL.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 24th, 2012 01:22 pm (UTC)
I love that poem! <3 And I loved your story.

"He's fucking amazing! And amazing at fucking, I should say," lol! Oh, Draco, well said!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:24 pm (UTC)
I discovered the poem while looking for a title for this story, and was immediately entranced by it. Heh, glad you liked that line! Thank you for your kind words!
Truthful Plum Logical Horsemegyal on December 24th, 2012 03:29 pm (UTC)
I liked Lucius in this, a lot! Everyone felt so right to me, I really enjoyed reading it.
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! I've really become a fan of the family-first Malfoys lately. Glad you liked it!
Leela: Solemnly swearleela_cat on December 25th, 2012 12:34 am (UTC)
Such a good story. I loved not just your Harry and Draco, but also the minor characters around them - Pansy, Narcissa, Lucius and even Ron.

Very nicely done.
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for reading and commenting! All the characters were such fun to write. :)

Super adorable and completely perfect. The beginning had me smiling so much, because the way Harry reacts is so very believable, and the ending is the sweetest thing ever. ♥ In love with this!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you so very much for your kind words! I'm glad the beginning came off as I intended it to, with Harry biting off a bit more than he can chew, LOL.

LUCIIIIIIEEEEE *squish him*
A warm, wonderful read!♥ everyone is so great here. and the angst, humor, drama, romance are very balanced. I love it!

Pablo Neruda embodies love and longing so well. For a tiny minute while reading the story I almost though that it would not end well. I know angst was promised and I think I forgot all about the not epilogue complient-ness so I was just as heartbroken as Harry when Draco left. This was a grat read. Very angsty; which I can appreciate and even embrace when there is a happy ending. It was sweet because Harry cannot help it, even Draco could not help but gush. I like that Pansy found her Gryffindor as well. And I loved the end!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:30 pm (UTC)
I was unfamiliar with Neruda before I found this poem, but I read some of his other works and he is quite an amazing poet. All my stories end up angsty somehow, LOL, but I usually try to make sure they have a happy ending. Thank you so very much for reading and commenting!
Nennenenne on December 29th, 2012 01:04 am (UTC)
That was just perfect! :)
kayladie: supermenkayladie on January 27th, 2013 10:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for thinking so! :D
gorgeousbowneyes: Slytherin Heelsg_bowneyes on December 30th, 2012 03:24 pm (UTC)
Nawwww I loved this! I felt Harry was so in character! And Draco too of course, but Harry really hit me and really felt like 'this is the real Harry'. And it was all just so lovely and well done!!!! I really enjoyed reading this, it's a classic love story for the two of them, something that I will always remember reading :)

And I love the poem you quoted in the author notes, it's so lovely and sweet. Mystery author, when you are revealed, pretty please talk to me more about that poet haha!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on February 24th, 2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for your wonderfully kind words! Characterization is always a concern for me, so I'm happy that you feel I got them right. The poem is amazing, isn't it! I was not familiar with Neruda's works before I found this poem, but he was a wonderful artist.

Thank you!
Appleling: Appleling icon2appleling on December 31st, 2012 02:37 pm (UTC)
I love it! *happy sigh* This is just perfect! The perfect mixture of fluff, angst, drama, hurt/comfort and sexiness that is exactly my kind of thing! Also, your Lucius and Narcissa gave me soooo many happy feels! I just love fics with Lucius as a father who loves his son instead of Evil!Lucius fics! Such a pleasure to read this masterpiece! Awesome!
kayladie: supermenkayladie on February 24th, 2013 03:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I've become quite fond of a 'good' Malfoy family recently. I like stories where Lucius realizes how badly he's screwed up and decides to put his wife and son first.

Harry and Draco and the soap opera of their lives!

LOL, yeah, that's pretty much all of my Harry/Draco stories. Thanks for reading!

kayladie: supermenkayladie on February 24th, 2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Harry and Draco will ALWAYS end up together in my stories, LOL. Lucius and Narcissa love Draco enough to want to see him happy, which is as it should be. Glad you liked the bit of humor there at the end. :)
emrys_mk: baby harry - destinyemrys_mk on January 9th, 2013 02:23 am (UTC)
As much as I enjoyed your Harry and Draco, I loved your Pansy (with Neville!), Narcissa and Lucius. Especially Narcissa. She is a character I am becoming more and more interested in. Now back to Harry and Draco... yay for Harry standing up and defending Draco in the Ministry--that was so very well done. Then when they got together and had sex and sex and sex and more sex, guh! So hot! And then the fic went from good to very good after the announcement of Draco and Astoria's engagement. Harry's anger and hurt was so very real, and when he gave Draco that ultimatum, my heart hurt for both of them. But the scene that made the fic was Narcissa talking to Draco. OMG I teared up.

And then all was well in the end.
kayladie: supermenkayladie on February 24th, 2013 03:25 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad that you enjoyed my take on all the characters! I've grown to love Narcissa myself. And I love a strong, loving Malfoy family unit. Harry wouldn't be Harry without his 'saving people thing', and Draco is incredibly thankful for that, of course. That doesn't mean that he isn't still very insecure and, unfortunately, he nearly breaks Harry's heart with the news of his engagement. (All my stories end up angsty in some way or other!) I'm glad you liked the Draco and Narcissa scenes as I really loved writing those.

Thank you again for your wonderful comments!

Cute! I love Pansy's side ship in the background there. :)
kayladie: supermenkayladie on February 24th, 2013 03:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I knew that Pansy was one of thusspakekate's favorites, so I had to make her happy!
