Things I love about this fic:
[spoileryish]1. Charlie!

2. Hermione and Draco being civil over their N.E.W.T.s!

3. Determined!Harry! I just love Harry's expression in that scene, how fierce it must have been to make Draco wary. Determined Harry is so much my favourite.

4. ANNNNNGGST. So deliciously well-done! And I love the resolution.

5. Dragooooons. And Thuban's name and character is awesome.


I'm so delighted and pleased. Thank you very very much!

*blushes* Thank you! It's the little details like Draco with long hair that I would have never known on my own.

What a wonderful fic I adored the setting and charcters.

It was believeable how Harry and Draco came together.

I also enjoyed Charlie and all your characters in Romania :)

Thank you! Believable is a huge compliment for me. I had a lot of fun with my head in Romania (where I've never been). :)

Thank you! :D I love Dragon Tamer!Draco, too. I imagine he wears a lot of leather. *leers*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on December 29th, 2012 12:09 pm (UTC)
That was wonderful!! <3

Such a feel-good story. It made me feel all warm and happy, with Harry pining after Draco while he was gone and Draco and his aloofness about Harry. I knew, I just KNEW he was afraid of Harry rather ending the whole thing.

I loved it to bits.

Thank you! What a very kind review. :) I wanted something feel-good for the holidays, but I didn't want to write straight fluff (I love pining too much). I'm so glad you liked it!

Draco as a dragon tamer is very hot :D I love how he introduced Harry to Thuban and how passionate he was about the dragons.

A wonderful read mystery author :D
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! Draco is so dragon-like; it was fun to place him among his own. :)

Love the idea Draco would be chosen over Harry, and the shock of Ron at the very idea.
Also the dragon-lore itself, and description of annoying tourists (those are everywhere).
So sweet you got them all together at the end.
Good work.
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I liked the idea of taking Draco and Harry away from their history to a place in which they were judged only on their skill with dragons. It gives Draco a chance to shine and Harry a chance to be 'normal.' Creating the dragon reserve was way too much fun.

Thank you for your kind comment.

Cute! Good job! Thanks for writing!

Thank you! :)

Gah. So many things about this were amazing. Romania and the Ocs were amazing, the H/D beats all though. I love this Harry and Draco. Draco rushing out everyday was classic and Harry’s determination are just so well Harry.
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm glad the boys came across IC. :) I had a bit too much fun researching Romania and creating the wizarding community there. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Harry as a dragon trainer is one of my favorites. That Draco is also a trainer is a very nice bonus. Wonderful story, thank you for sharing.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. :)

This was wonderful. I love your description of Draco with the dragons - it was perfect - made me really think that he had an understanding of them. Charlie was great as well. Good job!
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I think Draco understands and respects dragons in a way that would make him good with them (and make them respect him). Charlie is so dragon obsessed that he would look past Draco's history to his talent. I'm glad you enjoyed this.

Yay, indeed. I'm so glad you enjoyed this! :)

Lovely story, I specially liked the magical world everyday details, particularly the Trivial Wizard Pursuit anecdote ^^
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I had a lots of fun with those details. I'm glad you liked it. :)

I enjoyed this! Very much. Insecure Draco afraid of Luna made me want to cuddle him. :-)
fantasyfiend09: Rain Postcard Red Rahlfantasyfiend09 on January 18th, 2013 05:51 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) Draco is rather cuddly when you get past the prickles.
