      I really enjoyed this! It was perfectly entertaining, and I loved how they each had a secret crush on the other and how that info kept slipping out whenever they'd visit with the other's friends or therapists. They felt very IN character to me, and I actually appreciated that they refrained from sex while still polyjuiced - I can find that to be a bit of a squick, so the just kissing thing was fine :) (and Draco's dreams were hot enough to satisfy too ♥). Very sweet and cute fic!

      This story has lovely pining on Draco's part, which get get tantalizing glimpses of. And it's wonderful that Harry truly never suspects Draco for these crimes and genuinely wants his help, which makes it a bit heartbreakking that Draco nevertheless thought he was playing a cruel game. The confessions at the end are very sweet indeed. Draco being so sure that Harry would laugh at him is incredibly touching.

    Summary

    The war is over, the Death Eater trials are complete, life in the wizarding world is finally getting back to normal, and Harry Potter is restless.

      Well written, enjoyable story giving a surprising depth of character to both Draco and Harry. I loved the subtlety of Draco's reactions to the thoughtless remarks that Harry would say - how much they revealed about Draco's true feelings. Harry here is a bit clueless (and kinda thick headed about what Draco might be 'up' to!) but ultimately sweetly open and honest in the end. And wow, the end, so hot too!

    Summary

    Harry cursed the day he’d ever made the stupid bet with Ron because that bet was what had led to him being naked in front of a Muggle art class. Of course Draco Malfoy had to be taking the class, because that’s just how Harry’s life worked.

      This story was an utter delight to read. The premise of Harry having to pose nude was made to seem plausible, and all the banter between him and Ron and Hermione and later Draco was great. I loved how interested they both obviously were in each other, and how they danced around each other for weeks, only able to mention their feelings when feeling the effects of alcohol. Very enjoyable! (And I feel like I should tag for alekina!Draco, because the description of him in this story is so clearly influenced by 'that picture' :)

      Very sweet, lovely and gentle fic with a "Beauty and the Beast" style plot. Draco is cursed to die within a year unless he can find somebody to love him - really romantically love him, no tricks. He doesn't believe it is possible, and just decides to concentrate on rebuilding family ties instead, which has the unexpected result of drawing Harry to him. Slow build, but very satisfying overall.

      This was so beautiful, and so perfect! The image she painted with her words fit the image Alekina painted with her brushes just flawlessly.
      The premise here is that Harry and Draco are partnered cursebreakers. Harry comes to realize that Draco's mark is a drag on his magic and that it has been searching for a new master. Indeed, Harry can feel the pull of the mark on himself and offers to remove it. It's a question of trust: can Draco trust Harry to remove the mark without installing himself as its new master, and can Harry trust himself not to give in to temptation? I just adore Raitala's dry wit in this story. So many wonderful lines. And I'm in love with her biting, sarcastic, irreverent Draco, and her restrained yet oh-so-powerful Harry too.

      I enjoyed this so much! It's 8th year, and Dolores Umbridge is back and set on tormenting Harry once again. Harry is still wary and untrusting of Draco, but all the while is falling for a disguised version of him who is helping him get through his detentions. I felt for Draco, so, so much - his hope and his resignation were so palpable. I loved how their relationship developed in both of Draco's guises, and how Harry came to realize that he himself had his own prejudices as well. All the characterizations were great, the characterization of Umbridge particularly so. It felt almost like reading the fifth book again!

    Summary

    Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-with-benefits, except for some reason it involves an awful lot of actual dating and, sadly, not much sex. Confused? Harry is too, but when has anything with Draco Malfoy ever been as straightforward as it seems?

      So sweet and cute and enjoyable! Draco especially is so vulnerable-seeming and guarded, and makes you just want to knock Harry over the head with something :) I thought all the convoluted fake-relationship plotting was funny, especially this bit:

      “So… let me see if I understand what you’re telling me. Our fake relationship involves going on real dates so that we can get to know each other well enough that our friends are reasonably convinced we’ve been actual-dating this whole time, except we’re not, but we’re very convincing about it because of all the dates we’ve actually been on.”
      Draco huffed and folded his arms tightly over his chest. “Well it sounds stupid when you put it like that.”

      Rarely have I hit the kudos button at AO3 so fast! This fic was so good! I loved how realistic everything seemed - Draco's deep hurt and reluctance to trust Harry again, Harry's immense regret and determination to be worthy of trust, and even Scorpius was perfect. Honestly, I usually avoid kid!fic because the depictions of the children can seem so idealized and ungrounded, but every one of Scorpius' reactions to each step of his fathers getting back together was spot on how a child of that age and experience would have reacted. The reconciliation for Harry and Draco does not come easy at all, nor should it. But through it all there's a slow but searing build-up of the UST until the fantastic sex scenes at the end. Just AMAZING. Loved this fic!!!

      This fic is so compelling, and takes its time in a nice slow build with fantastic characterizations, realistic dialogue, developing UST, and a fascinating medical mystery to boot. The fic is told from Draco's POV, and once he returns to England to work with Harry, we can tell immediately how unlike himself Harry is. Docile and flat, and complaining not at all about having Draco for a Healer. And yet, no one else around Harry sees just how odd this really is. We share Draco's frustration in dealing with pushy ministry types who press him to rush his treatment to get Harry back to work, and understand his need to stay professional and not let his developing feelings get in the way of the doctor/patient relationship, even as he begins to suspect that Harry reciprocates them. Nothing comes easily - not Harry's treatment, nor their relationship, nor what choices Harry will make about his career - which make the victories all the more sweet when they finally come.

      This fic is such a treat! So witty, so clever, and so much fun! But it's also genuinely moving, without ever being heavy-handed about it. I loved all the wry humor and the banter between Draco and Pansy and the awkward conversations between Draco and Harry. It's told in a non-linear narrative fashion which is slightly confusing at first, but really serves to underscore the you-can't-make-this-stuff-up absurdness of Draco's post-war life. It's also interspersed with delightful excerpts from Draco's dry-witted "Dear Uncle Plume" advice column. Just a great read all around.

      I'll admit I'm not usually one for past relationship stories, but this one is so beautifully told, with wonderful believable characterizations and dialogue. And I love that there had been no "stupid misunderstanding" in the past - the reasons for their break-up might seem trivial in retrospect, but at the time both of them thought it was for the best and it made sense. When they meet again for the first time in this story, you can tell how much they still mean to each other, and it is very poignant, yet understated and tentative at the same time. I love how we saw how much both of them had matured in the intervening years, and how much better they understood themselves and what they want now. Very very enjoyable and lovely all around.

      This was just an utterly delightful story! I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Draco and Harry are put into quarantine together for two weeks after having been exposed to the same infectious disease, and they go from deliberately ignoring each other, to nursing each other through their respective illnesses, to cautious romantic interest.

      I loved the wry humor in Draco's inner thoughts, and adored the awkward but determined way Harry went about finding out if Draco reciprocated his interest in the end. Everything felt so reasonable and in character and just charming all around.

      This was a terrific story, and so clever and well written. I loved the way the author uses their diary conversations to have them get to know and like each other even before they start interacting again in real life.

      Draco figures out that he's writing to Harry immediately, but Harry is in the dark. But it makes so much sense, because Draco is understandably reticent with the information he relays - not quick to trust - while Harry just barrels on ahead with little concern for anonymity and wearing his heart on his sleeve. Draco ends up giving Harry advice on how to woo him, and it's wonderfuly sweet, even as the guilt is gnawing away at Draco for the deception. The way the confessions finally come out in the end is wonderful and so emotionally satisfying.
