Title: From the Printers of Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, past Harry/Draco
Summary: A random curse leaves Harry and Draco forced to work together again. It's quite all right, though; they can be professionals. It'll be a nice change from the last time they worked together.

I loved everything about this. Seriously. The characters, the humor, the professions, the meddling, the children, the shenanigans, the LOVE. All of it. ♥

Lovely - I really admire how gentle everything was, how there could be tension and bitterness and hurt feelings but that it didn't snowball into massive drama and angst, and how the two of them could be introspective and tentative and take their time in getting to know each other again. The fact that the kids and the exes are all, in various ways, in on it, and that Draco's taking advice from Molly of all people - nice touch. And I love the idea of playing around with a second Triwizard Tournament! Very sweet work.

This was a real pleasure to read! Fun plot, and I love the idea of the gaye courtship. ;-)

I should have known from the very beginning that Astoria was involved somehow! It was a very clever plot twist I must admit. I thought this a delightful fic. Every now and then there were passages that were quite angsty. But I am oh so glad it worked out in the end for Harry and Draco. I loved the steps that the book outlined for two wizards to be properly married. Some where silly but I think they showed that they cared for one another. I don't think I've ever read a fic in which Harry and Draco are divorced but they are also divorced from their respective epilogue complient spouses. It was a unique bit that I thought added for some hilarity in the fic. Goodness but I loved George in this. He was perfect. And man oh man was there family meddling. I really enjoyed this fic. And you seem to have a thing for forcing Harry and Draco together, but so do I!

This was very delightful! I loved the slow build-up after the previously rushed relationship, the characters and little touches. Gryffindor!Scorpius made me lol:)

OMG, you had me with that title! It was sad that they'd walked away from their marriage the first time around, but very sweet that they both still loved each other so much that they were willing to do the 'courting' thing.

Astoria!!! That's one awesome ex-wife! Actually, I like that both their families were so supportive and accepting of them and their relationship. And interesting that not one rumour suggested they were incompatible.

This was fun, funny, a bit sad, and eventually happy. ♥

This was a really good story. I really love it when someone writes a good epilogue-compliant fic, because, however much I want them together as soon as possible, I also really like their kids, so always feel a bit sad when said kids are left out. I also really like how everybody was likable. You did a good job. Also, when I got to the part where you mentioned the other schools and how they were all-boy and all-girl, I was shaking my head and thinking, as I usually do when something like this happens, "Don't these people pay attention to the books at all? Why do they write in details from the movies as if they were cannon?" It really bugs me because I'm obsessive and have a ridiculous memory for detail. Imagine my joy when I came to your notes and found that not only were you aware of movie vs. book cannon but that you mentioned it just for entertainment value and the joy of pointing out the movie-makers' idiocy! :D Or at least to point out that it makes no sense. No, you are not the only person to have wondered about it. Last, but not least, the title was absolutely priceless. Much love.
