Hey, here with your requested review!

This was adorable. I really liked how you took a humorous and believable situation and turned it into an opportunity to get Hermione and Draco "together" in a believable way. I could totally picture something just like this happening in the canon series - well, provided that Hermione is forced afterward to provide commentary on Draco's kissing abilities to someone :)

I liked how the mistletoe came to life and became its own character. You picked a nice way of narrating the interaction between Draco and Hermione. Speaking of which, both of them seemed in character as well. I liked how they protested and railed against their common enemy for much of the story, and then after they finally gave in there was just a hint that something had been felt by both of them, but it didn't turn into this big, overblown, cliched romantic saga. Kudos to you as well for not feeling the need to demonize Ron. He and Harry also seemed like they were perfectly in character here.

Flow was pretty good; it was short and sweet, but obviously that's what it needed to be for a quick one-shot like this. The only thing that was a little off to me were the technical details; I think you could benefit from having a Quick Beta look over this and fix up those little errors for you. Then you should be in good shape flow-wise.

I really liked the imagery you used to describe the castle's decor near the beginning as well. This isn't a story that needed a whole lot of description, but that little bit was really nice.

This is definitely one of the best Dramione one-shots that I've read. You took a creative idea and executed it very well; it's a shame you weren't able to compete with it in the duel. Nice work all the same! Hope this review is helpful :)
