Author's Notes: OMG, when I got your prompt, novembersnow I was so pleased. And, I'll admit, a bit anxious about getting it right for you. I hope I managed to capture enough of your request, and that you enjoy the adventure this takes you on. Happy Holidays! Big thanks to W, R, R, and C, my fantabulous betas and Brit-pickers. The story wouldn't be what it is without your sage advice. ♥ And thanks to the mods for hosting, as always, a fantastic fest.

Eeeee, thank you! This was charming from start to finish, and I adore you for fitting in so many of the things I love (oh, there is still far, far too little Dark Mark licking in this fandom!). I really, really enjoyed the setting and the way it created a sort of otherworldly aura. The slow-burning attraction between Harry and Draco was delicious to behold (I may have cheered aloud when Draco kissed Harry the first time :D), and I'm glad that Harry was able (however tenuously) to accede to the demands of his conscience while Draco was still in the dark about their shared past--it made the resolution all the sweeter. :)

Thank you! ♥

Sorry for taking so long to respond. I did read your comment right away, though.

You are very welcome, my dear. I was hoping you would enjoy the slow build-up, and I couldn't resist using Skye, after visiting the island this past summer. Besides its beauty, it just seemed so removed from everything that I thought it would be a perfect place to lose one's self. And there's a lot of magical folklore, which helps. :)
