I give this my first 4 hearts of the hol fests. ♥♥♥♥

I adored this fic. The imagery, the way the warmth and the cold reflected the relationship. I love that Harry thought he was being shunned and yet Draco felt the same way, it was very real.

I loved the body language. The way they spoke volumes without saying barely anything. The little things, like they still had their coats on. The way the first kiss fell flat and Draco panicked and Harry finally understood.

I love that you gave us a wonderful ending. Thank you.

AWW!! *hugs* Wow, thank you! Awwwww.... You are so NICE TO ME. ^___^

I liked writing the confusion for this fic because it's definitely something I have had the chance to experience, because, whatever the reason behind it, lack of communication REALLY botches things up. I'm so happy you enjoyed the fic, and I'm especially excited that you found it to be so real. Thank you!

OMG. This is very powerful, and raw, and desperate, and I loved it!

Okay, so that posted before I was ready... *is confused*

I absolutely love Draco here, in his utter need for Harry... And Harry, confused and unsure but yet not at the same time. This was very well written, and I really can't say how much I enjoyed it.

Fabulous! The tensions was so thick and I loved how Harry's honest confusion mixed in with his concern for their friendship. Well done!

Thank you so much! I'm sorry I've only responded now. I'm such a slacker lately... *apologizes*

I like the pacing of this story, and the level of emotional detail and intensity you place in it! Awesome... thanks for sharing :)
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:07 am (UTC)
Thank you for reading! I'm so glad you enjoyed the story.

I love the image you provoked of Harry and Draco being conflicted about their feelings. The language you used was beautiful.
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:07 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much!

And that is a totally cute icon. I have a friend who slept like that when he was in preschool. *laughs*

I really enjoyed this! The uncomfortable tension, and that desperate struggle to hold onto something, anything just hiking the tension higher and higher - it felt like I was on the edge of my seat throughout! I loved your use of language, and your beautiful descriptions of movement (especially the kisses)! Really, really lovely work - thank you!
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:09 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you for immersing yourself into my story like this! That's such a nice thing to read about a fic of mine. I really appreciate your review!

this was exquisite. i'm not sure if it was the story or just the direction my thoughts began to take as i read it, but this hit rather close to home. your writing is absolutely gorgeous and quietly breathtaking and so full of detail, subtle yet remarkably vivid. i very, very much enjoyed this, my goodness. ♥

To tell the truth, parts of this are based on some very close-to-home things for me as well. It's kind of comforting to realize that I'm not the only one who can relate to Harry's experience (or Draco's, for that matter), and I thank you for letting yourself drop so far into the narrative that it affected you so deeply.

Wow, this is really powerful. Quiet but runs deep. I know I will read it again.
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:14 am (UTC)
Thank you so much, especially for this:

Quiet but runs deep.

Thank you. ^__^

This was a wonderful read. I loved getting to see them move ever so slowly from one relationship into another, and to see their insecurities in action.
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:15 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you! I'm so happy you liked the story. Thank you for your review.

Wow. Fantastic. I love how twisted up their emotions are, but that they work it out in the end.
rurounihime on May 12th, 2009 06:14 am (UTC)
Thank you very much for leaving me this lovely comment! I'm glad you liked the story. :)

^________^ Loved this.

I think I knew who wrote this too because you always get me the same way with the longing that makes me wibble like no one else and the intricate kissing scenes that never fail to be perfect.

If you aren't who I'm thinking of, you still did a fantastic job. *__*

Were you right? ^__^ *hugs*

Thank you so much for reading my fic! And for loving the kissing scenes... Heh, I'll admit that they are a lot of fun to write. *cackles* I'm so glad you enjoyed the story!

you have brilliantly been able to capture the intensity of emotions in the transition from friends to lovers
really well written, thankyou so much
rurounihime on June 2nd, 2009 02:27 am (UTC)
Thank you SO MUCH! It is really nice to find out that so many people can relate to Harry and Draco's experience in my story. Some of it is based on personal experience, and it's just comforting to see that other people get it too. Thank you so much!

Well I'm late to the party so everyone has pretty much summarized how I feel.

It's the perfect example of what is best in an HP/DM fic. Great job. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.
