Hi Georgia! It's Constants from TGS (if you didn't know that already). I decided that I should go ahead and review you! I just have to say wow! I wasn't disappointed =]]
Draco wants more out of his relationship, but Harry doesn't. When you really look at it from an outsider's perspective, it was only physical. What I enjoyed about it was the way Draco viewed it. He was clinging on to Harry like he was his first love (I guess you can say that if Harry is his first male...partner?) And I believe Harry is having a problem with his sexuality. That or liking Draco, since they're enemies.
Even though this wasn't even 1000 words, you managed to capture a lot of emotion. For instance, "No one knew the Harry Potter you did; no one knew the submissive, wanton creature he became in those dark classrooms, away from the rest of the world", was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
As I was reading the first few lines of the story, my eyes widened and I immediately realised why this was mature. But...I liked it. The snogging session was HOT, and I'm not even a Draco/Harry shipper. The imagery and just everything completely made it.
Yeah, you were sort of right on the AU thing, but isn't that what Harry Potter slash is based on (unless it's Dumbledore/Grindelwald)? Of course, if they had to work on a Transfiguration project together, nothing of that sort wouldn't have happened, but the idea is interesting =]]
If there is any CC, it was that Draco's character was a little too soft. I'm not even sure if that is CC, considering that we've never had the chance to get into his mind. Besides, as said above, this is AU.
When Harry returned Draco's smile, I nearly died inside. It was brighter than Draco's. OMG! I can think of a lot of reason's why it might be, and they all go back to Harry being happy that they are in the closet. =[[ Poor Draco.
You must make a sequel to this! Draco needs to man up and be with Harry! They are destined to be together, and even though Harry is hesitant, it shouldn't stop them. I beg you, Georgia. You can just PM me what you think is going to happen after this, but I've got to know. I'll cry if this is left up to reader interpretation =[[
I apoligise if this review was just a tad too confusing! I fear I rambled too much.
Instant fav, 10/10!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Constants!
Actually, I was thinking it was going the other way - that Harry was more comfortable with the relationship than Draco - but each to her own :) I'm intrigued to see your view of this! Yes, Draco was clinging - while Harry is sort of awkwardly comfortable (oxymoron :P) with their relationship, Draco doesn't know what he feels but he likes it.
I'm glad you liked that line! Without sounding full of myself (which I will, but whatever), I find when I write short passionate scenes like this, I can come up with some pretty good lines :)
Thanks! I'm a bit wary of the beginning, actually - it comes across a bit smutty to be honest and I probably should think about reigning it in. But I think it gets across the passion I wanted, so I'll keep it as is for now :)
Haha, yes, school project - I'm such a sucker for the clichÃ©'s, haha :P Definitely AU but in a way I hope is partially canon (if that makes sense!).
Now, I definitely can understand how Draco would seem soft - my only excuse could be this is a very vulnerable point in time for him.
Haha, I'm glad you liked it! My interpretation of that would be that Harry was happy Draco was admitting SOMETHING about their relationship, even if it was that he simply wanted it to continue. And that he liked the kiss, which was much more affectionate than passionate. But, again, your opinion is equally valid!
I really don't know what happened after this - this kind of came to me (see what I mean? Queen of the ClichÃ©, right here :P). I'll see what I can do though - I'll definitely send you that PM though it will probably just say I don't know where it would go :)
Noo, this review was actually one of the best I have received! Thank you for giving me such a detailed response! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
