Why I loved this: A different take on vampire fics with excellent characterization of both Harry and Draco and a very realistic, nicely done ending. This was simply one of the best vampire stories I have ever read the way it was written was brilliant and the sexy was so very hot.
I think I forgot to breath many times when reading this and spots danced around me as I took in the vivid description of a possessive Harry claiming his mate Draco *rawr* I'll need to read this one over and over and I suggest you read this if you haven't yet or read it again it's worth it. It made my gut twist and hurt almost clench in a good way though.
I fell down to worship her and you will want to do the same after you read this gem.
A small excerpt from the story...Draco had felt an awful twist then, like the roll of his own nausea but edged with something sharper, more visceral as he looked upon the writhing brunet and his trembling had increased as he noted that even in his pain and his almost blindness, the Gryffindor was still moving forward, crawling in tiny, incremental jerking motions. Moving towards Draco.
He’d wanted to run, wanted to scream but he hadn’t moved, didn’t so much as breathe as he watched the other boys agonised actions. He couldn’t have been doing what Draco dreaded but still he had crawled forward and Draco’s sigh of relief had been echoed by the surrounding crowd as Dumbledore had quickly stunned the boy, leaving him slumped and finally peaceful against the stone floor.
