This is the first Draco/Harry story I've ever read and I didn't dislike the ship as much as I thought I would. You handled their relationship quite well and I think I came to like the ship at about the same time Harry realised he was in love.

Writing dream fics are always tricky as the author need to distinguish between the real world and the dream world, which you did. The present tense of the story caught me by surprise and I did struggle to get to grips with it. However, it worked well in trying to demonstrate Harry's confusion and feelings towards both worlds. I also thought that Harry being so tolerant to Draco was odd. I assume enough time had passed after the war and Harry had accepted Draco a bit more?

The two worlds are interwoven cleverly. The similarities are astonishing and the differences ingenious. The part about Harry being Draco's patient because of his dreams of the other world was brilliant, and for a fleeting moment I wondered if the Drarry relationship might be the real one.

Harry's adaptation to the dream world and coming to terms with these new emotions was nicely done. I especially liked his reaction to finding out about Minister Riddle. How odd that must have looked to the other characters in that world. The banter between Draco and Harry was great. I would have liked to read a scene or two with Draco and Harry in the real world and how Harry might have taken to that.

I could tell Harry was getting drawn into the dream world more and more, and I hoped it wouldn't get to the point where he couldn't tell which was which. The tattoo doodle that Draco drew on his arm was very interesting. I think Harry probably drew it on himself while he was dreaming.

In all honesty, I think the ending was very abrupt. The shock factor was written well, and I liked the back and forth-ness, but I'd have preferred the ending to be developed a bit more. As to my thoughts on what happened, I think Harry died. His life with Draco was only a dream and the more he tried to hold onto it, the further he slipped away from the real world.

I enjoyed reading this story and the quotes at the beginning of chapters were a nice touch. Just out of interest, what was the timespan for this story? I don't think it was referred to and I'm curious. :)
