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.

Love it! How wonderful that you keep the angry, awkward tension between Harry and Draco right up to the end - it's so perfectly them. This has a fantastic, rolling pace, and a snarky, edgy tone all the way through - from Draco's growing obsession to Harry's denial and resentment and underlying need to make something more of it.

The canon slides in and out of the story so strongly that right to the last paragraphs you keep the reader uncertain whether it's all going to align itself again and walk away. But no, it twists again and off we go!

And there was a definite *snorfle* moment over Vesta - which is just close enough to Vespa that I was all 'Bond, Draco Bond' and giggles.

This has joined the keeper file - a great time was had by all. :D
