Wow!! The level of detail in the background of this is just breathtaking.

I love the hug, and the way Draco is nuzzling Harry's neck, and how they're both in house colours. Oh, and the sign on the bus is perfect!!

re: London Calling
Any art that has Draco eyebrows and lashed blond will make me happy. But this one left me gaping with open mouth at the sheer mind-blowing attention to detail, in the buildings, the lion, the stitches of Harry's scarves. The title and the summary quote is just wonderful. But most of all I love how the two of them are just melting into each other, from sheer (London) happiness. Thank you so much for this. The happiest of H/D holidays to you.

This is just stunning! I adore the level of details. Their faces shine with LOVE! The background is superb, but man.. I can't stop staring at that hug!

Brilliant work!

Beautiful! I love how happy they look! And I adore the buses. Red double deckers will never stop making me smile! (Except when they're late...)

WOW, this is absolutely beautiful! The detail in the background is amazing, but I'm absolutely captivated by Harry and Draco. Love their red cheeks and Draco's smile... So sweet! :)

This is brilliant, from the Mrs. Dalloway quote introducing it to the detail of the buildings to the flush of their cheeks to the message on the bus sign.
I can't stop looking. The background is incredible. Wow. So beautifully and carefully detailed. And the boys, of course, are great - I love the way their arms are wrapped around each other, and the house colours.

I LOVE this! I love London images and Harry and Draco like this makes it even perfect. I love all the details on it; the lion, the buss, the buildings, I love the rain. And the happiness and bliss you can see on their faces!

Mods are right, the background is stunning. But so are Harry and Draco! <333

Aw, they look so happy and all the details make it beautiful. It's a busy street, but a moment just for the two of them. :D

What a lovely gift for the pinch hitters and a super treat for all of us! Harry and Draco just radiate happiness and I feel like I'm standing in London! The chips on the rocks, the message on the bus, the snow, the clouds ♥♥♥
