Author's Notes: Extra special thanks to my two fabulous betas, A & R. There really are no words to describe how much I appreciate your help. Your advice, suggestions and keen eyes kept my story on track, and your encouragement and support kept me sane. :-) Any remaining errors, of course, are all mine.
Written for lire_casander's request, which included: : I like romance, angst, UST and plotty stories, also songfics. I also like slow paced stories, where the love is developing and the reader can sense it. I love first kisses, sunsets and walks under the moonlight. I LOVE shy!Draco and oblivious!Harry. Auror!Harry and/or Draco is fine too. Two or three prompts: first kiss, night, "Nothing can take me away from you" I’ve tried to incorporate as many of these requests as possible. I hope you like it!
