Author's Notes: Many, many heartfelt thanks to my beta, who made this piece far more readable and smooth than it was to begin with, and who taught important lessons about commas and full stops. :) Dear reader, beware just a little bit: our heroes have common history, and each tells his own half of it to make up a whole – but have in mind that Harry's perspective moves backwards, and Draco's goes forwards. And finally: Alexis, may you have the happiest of all Christmases! Here’s my small contribution to the porny part of the holidays :g: I hope you enjoy!
