Author's Notes: Dear astridfire, happy HD holidays! I changed plots (and subplots) a ridiculous number of times before finally ending up with this. You gave me a lot of freedom with your prompt, and I'm afraid the plot has deviated quite a lot from what I'd originally had in mind, but I hope this has some of the elements you were looking for. Thank you so much to M for all of her idea-bouncing and hand-holding. ♥

Oh, Mystery Author! I love my present! LOVE IT. I cannot stop smiling! :D

The meeting again after several years, falling for each other while Harry is in disguise (!), Harry completely failing at winning over Draco while wearing his own face (lol), Draco's reaction to the truth, getting to know each other for real, and the FIRE. I love the ending. And the epilogue is so sweet. :)

Thank you SO MUCH! I love it. :) I'm so glad I was up late to read it!

This fic was super cute. I like how Harry actually had the guts to tell Draco the truth about his glamour; I always get frustrated with mistaken identity fics when the character's secret is revealed in another matter and the character's always, "I meant to tell you, but..." It was a nice twist. Also, tea shops are the best. I also like neighborly H/D, so awesome! Thanks for writing!

Thank you! ♥ I knew right away that I wanted Harry to come clean about things on his own terms, because to me, that just felt like the most ... Harry thing to do, and I'm glad you found it believable. :)

That was so cute! So funny. So many bits I loved: both liking the French doors made me smile, the whole part of Draco mentioning Potter to Harvey, the babbling, Harry bringing Draco pie <3, the milkshake, loved it all.

*happy sigh*

Aw, very sweet. Especially because you know the explosion when Draco Finds Out is coming and there's nothing to be done about it.

Thank you! ♥ I actually hesitated a lot over Draco's reaction and how much/little he should freak out, haha, but I hope you found it believable.

Very sweet! I loved Harry plying Draco with baked goods, and Draco being the oblivious one for once!

This was such a great read. I'm in love with the tea shop and would kill for pumpkin pie right now. I love how you made it obvious who Harvey was even though we were in Draco's head. The scene with Hermione was so funny! Harry was perfect, both as himself and Harvey, especially trying to win Draco over with sweets. The ending was very exciting and the epilogue was sweet. Lovely work.

What a delightful comment - thank you so much! ♥ I'm really glad the characterization worked for you - and I was craving baked goods myself the entire time I was writing this, haha. (:

so cuteeee *squee*

the idea of mistaken identity and the pining/angsting that followed might be rather cliche, but who can resist lovely h/d cliche with your style of writing ? very warm and lovely read, it's appropriate with the christmasy/holiday spirit i think ♥ ♥ ♥

This was sweet and fun and oh-so-romantic. I loved your Draco's inner monologue, and Harry's fumbling little self. A very nice read! ♥ ♥

This was just so cute. I know that word has been used in other comments, but it's just a fitting word to describe this fic. Loved the premise and the green eyes. And that Harry baked (and that might or might not have to do with the fact that I love to bake). And suborn Draco not admitting, not even to himself, that he had forgiven Harry and had fallen for him. And then the unexpected action! Plus I loved the end with the pair sharing New Year's Eve with Ron and Hermione.

Another sweet fic. Nothing like a near-tragedy to bring one's feelings into perspective. So happy Draco forgave Harry.

Your Draco has charmed me completely; I adore it when his overdramatic side is emphasized. I definitely laughed out loud several times at his inner monologue. Bless. ♥

I also thought it was so Harry to admit Harvey was him, and I'm really glad you had him confess, rather than Draco realize by accident; it seemed so much more in character that way. And the way you wrote the scene, with his repeated apologies, was perfect and made me remember how much I love Harry.

I'm a sucker for mistaken identity stuff in fic, and this was a very satisfying use of that trope. Thank you for the fun read! ♥

Thank you so much for the sweet comment, :). I knew right away that I wanted Harry to come clean about things on his own terms for the same reasons, and I'm so happy the characterization worked for you. ♥
