Breathtaking H/D a must read  
Title:Barriers Both, Flesh and Stone
Author:rurounihime
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 55,777
Warnings: None really just very angsty
Summary:An educational experiment turns disastrous.

Why I loved it: This was gorgeous in all the detail she put in each and every word. The way she writes phrases is such perfect, gorgeous imagery. It blows me away with how unbelievably gorgeous this story is. It is filled with excitement, angst, fear, happiness all the feels are in this gripping story. Harry and Draco are older and have children in Hogwarts and she writes all her characters very ic. Her characters may be a little broken, yet she handles it delicately and very realistic.

The sex is hot but so much more.... beautiful, sexy and very loving.

Marrianne recced this in her journal and I read it thanks to her and agree that this part of the story blows my mind, it breaks me yet puts me back together. I can hardly believe that words could be this beautiful. I have read and re read perfect stories and will have to read this one again.



Excerpt:

Harry panted helplessly. Draco opened his eyes and looked up at last. And couldn’t move. Couldn’t complete the pressure that was building, could only float in it and feel it all around, and see the person beneath him.

His eyes began to burn. He looked through it and saw the sweat beading Harry’s forehead, the damp strands of dark hair— he’d never looked at any of his lovers like this, man or woman, gods, he’d never seen them, and all of a sudden, Draco found himself speaking, words passing his lips between shuddering breaths. “You matter,” he whispered. He could barely look at Harry’s eyes, yet he didn’t want to look away. His hand trembled inches from the face before him. “Should have been you.”

He heard his own voice break.

Harry’s eyes darted; Draco felt them tracking over his face. Both of Harry’s hands rose and cradled his cheeks gently, warm fingertips sliding into Draco’s hair. Draco shook, but Harry’s hands held steady. Held him steady.

“Draco.” Harry wet his lips. His mouth opened and closed once before he said, “It’s always been you.”

*shivers* Just go and read this asap. :)))))))
