Ohhh! That was wonderful. :)

I thought at the beginning their relationship was a bit standoff-ish, but then I started to see the clues of smitten!Harry, like, all over the place and was so, so happy!

I loved and adored their chat sessions. :) I think it was easier for Draco to be more open then, even if he was still afraid he'd be rejected. But really, lightningstag was just so damn charming, it was impossible not to like him. I don't blame Draco for wanting to try to the end.

Though I totally understood why Harry wanted Draco to pick him, not the faceless him.

Still though, that conversation about the ring and the ending was so lovely. :D

I loved that before that Draco was willing to give Harry a chance. Lovely, lovely work, mystery author! <3

I adored this! Harry's pining and certainty was great, I loved his line about knowing where Draco lived and one of Draco's previous boyfriends answering the door. And I loved that Harry knew Draco easily by his screen name and all of their online interactions that overlapped with their in person conversations. And then Harry trying to be more of a morning person and coming to work on time. And I loved Draco's reluctance and desperation throughout this, and the idea that he was self sabotaging a bit. I just loved this from start to finish, thank you MA!
