Author's Notes: Dear bewarethesmirk, I couldn’t decide between this fic and another one, but nqdonne assured me that secretary!Draco would be more appropriate than unending angst. Hopefully I managed to hit on a few of your requests and avoid your squicks. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Huge thanks to my many betas for putting up with me through the tumultuous writing process.

Wow! I loved the twisted power play between Harry and Draco at the beginning and their reluctance to start anything. And then the denial. And the angst. But of course, with the kind of chemistry they had, their ending up together was inevitable.

Your writing was a pleasure, and it's probably the first fic I've seen with Astoria as an interesting character by her own right. But still, no match for Harry, obviously. ;)

Potter turned even redder than before, and Draco couldn’t help thinking that he had never seen so much blood in that end of Potter’s body.

“What if I said you can keep dating women? If you find one you like more than me, we’ll stop seeing each other. I’ll even give you my blessing.”
“Potter, I tried that with Astoria. In case you haven’t noticed, it didn’t work.”
Smiling, Potter brushed his knuckles against Draco’s cheek. Draco fought not to lean into the touch.
“Exactly,” he said.

Awwwww. Clever Harry.

What a fun, hot fic! Thank you!
