Aw, this is wonderful!

this was so sweet and heartwarming

Favourite part: “But,” Draco added, “we're going to have to talk about your habit of leering at other blokes. I'm quite a jealous person.”

Perfect lighthearted romance. Thank you so much for the xmas gift.

That was too good to be true! All I wanted was more!!!

Harry knocked on the door and automatically looked down as it swung open, expecting to see a house-elf. Instead, Harry found himself looking at a very nice belt buckle.

“I know manners aren't your strong suit, Potter, but my eyes are up here. It is customary to give eye contact when greeting someone. I'd expect dinner before I allowed that amount of leering.”
LOLOL. blame the reflex=)

When pressed for a statement, Mr Potter could only say, “Deal with it. Now fuck off and leave us alone.” For the full reaction to the news, see pages 4,5,6,7,8,9&10.
That’s so much pages on reactions…xp Wizarding Britain always felt entitled to opinions aren’t they?

Eight year fic, mixed dormitory (and a kitchen!!), meddlers, nuff sexiness and angsting….
Oh my, how is that all my favorite things in one lighthearted, romantic story? It’s as if the gift meant for meand only me[].
Very enjoyable read, warm and fuzzy. What made me felt quite peeved is Molly meddled without asking Harry’s permission and straight to asking that Thomas bloke if he want some date. It didnt fair on both of Harry and Thomas I think, not to mention how Draco get hurt from the thoughtlessness[even when it meant to be supportive] that almost broke H/D. And lucky that Lucius is in Azkie so Draco wont feel obliged to run to some pureblood witch to fulfill his supposed duty, so there wont be angsting and more angsting for years. I hope their friends didn’t give them hard time *kicks any meddlers on the way*♥ ♥..Thanks for writing!!

AWhole lot of meddling going on! It's a good thing Harry can stand up for himself. :)

Awww, that was sweet!

For the full reaction to the news, see pages 4,5,6,7,8,9&10. You just have to love the Prophet XDD

Brilliant and adorable and everything I wanted from an H/D Xmas fic. I'm actually up reading this at 3:30 in the morning, but this is definitely worth the lost sleep. ♥

That was really cuuute and sweet, loved it!

This was delightful, all the way to the very last line! (4,5,6,7,8,9&10 indeed!). I love the casual, friendly, interaction between the two, and the seeker's game, and regular schedule, and the eighth year dorm, and the way Ron kept at Harry to find someone, switching genders without a demur when he got the update.

Everyone was so in character, which I also loved.

Thanks for writing!

Lovely ending. I love 8th year fics.

Yay! Very cute. I enjoyed this one. Sweet, but not over the top. Lovely! :)

There's an air of discovery about this that I really enjoyed. Lovely read!

Ahh, 8th year stories are my favourite and this one was a lovely read. I'm so glad Draco came to his senses in the end.

My favourite line has to be this:“Deal with it. Now fuck off and leave us alone"

This made me so happy! I was totally sucked into the Hogwarts world and was ever so happy to be there. I like how you built up the relationship between Harry and Draco. I also like that Ron was more understanding than Harry gave him credit for. Pansy was just right. Thank you for the delightful story!

Loved this – especially the last line!

Awww, such a cute fic!! This was absolutely delightful! The ending was brilliant!

My favourite line has got to be: "Harry knocked on the door and automatically looked down as it swung open, expecting to see a house-elf. Instead, Harry found himself looking at a very nice belt buckle." LOL!! I'd do that too!
Black Silk: clutchpervyunitwins on January 2nd, 2013 10:17 am (UTC)
This was just great. I loved it all. Harry's visit to Draco to retun his wand, which just happened to be his birthday. And the. Their bidding friendship and romance. I am glad at the way that Ron reacted to Harry's gay confession. And though Harry was a bit dense for not realizing that Draco was interested in him as well; Draco was the true idiot for thinking for even a second that Harry would not want to be with him just because it would not be easy or because of what people though. Got to love that ending.

Wonderful! A lovely romance, and I liked Harry finally standing up for himself.
Marianne: defaulteidheann_writes on January 8th, 2013 09:38 am (UTC)
Oh Draco, don't try to be noble and push Harry away! *smacks him*

And Yay Harry for not letting Draco do it! *cheers him*
emrys_mk: baby harry - destinyemrys_mk on January 13th, 2013 04:11 pm (UTC)
What a feel-good fic! It isn't often you read Harry and Draco taking things slowly, so this was a nice change, with them not hopping into bed straight away.
subtlefire: Dark Phoenixsubtlefire on January 14th, 2013 03:08 am (UTC)
Oh, I loved this! I loved your take on what 8th year was like, especially the idea that they had their own dining room and how that allowed everyone to bond (nothing brings people together like food!). The humor in this was just wonderful, as was the growth and change of Harry and Draco's relationship from former enemies to friends to lovers. Really wonderful story :)
justbecause421: treejustbecause421 on January 14th, 2013 03:52 am (UTC)
This was one of my favorite stories of the fest. Ron being supportive, Draco being noble, Pansy being protective and Harry oh, Harry, he may be slow on the uptake but he knows how to make amends! ♥ ♥ ♥

I just love eighth year fics - it is coming home to Hogwarts and not having to worry about that nasty Voldemort. Such a great story and so much wonderful dialogue. I especially liked this line by Draco “I've seen the way you look at me. Well, me and the new Arithmancy professor.” -

Great job

Ahahahaha! LOVE that last newspaper snippet. *giggles*
What a sweet, feel-good fic. I love 8th year fics, and this was a lovely one.
Nice job!

Loved the Eighth years being able to be in the school, but not entirely connected to the rest of the students. As far as Harry and Draco - well, I fully enjoyed their romance, and loved Harry's comment to the press! I also loved 'hating Zach' as the running gag. :)

Sesheta: writing geniussesheta_66 on May 13th, 2013 03:47 am (UTC)
Loved this! I loved the build-up, from tentative friendship to true companionship. I adored that Harry wanted to enjoy the time with Draco and keep it to himself, at least for a little while, to savour it without having to explain himself. And then the way he stood up to Ron. And how they both fell for each other and had the chance to explore each other gradually, falling more deeply the whole time.

And Draco! *snuggles him* Silly boy. As if Harry would give him up that easily.

Lovely story. :)
