not fully romantic but not quite sad. an odd story in the way of genre and feeling, a well written one in terms of words, and a fantastic one in terms of overall. as i said before, odd. but well done, nonetheless.

Ahh I love the slow build of feelings in this story!

this did not end the way i wanted but i cannot deny that the writing was beautiful. it made me feel something, & my heart ached. the line "he still loves ginny, and he knows a part of him always will." really tore me apart. i didm;t like how he was so sad and depressed and didn't really chose to love draco and how he loved ginny throughout the whole thing idk it made my heart break but i have to admit that any writer that can make me feel as passionate as you did is a great one.

I think that would be pretty awful to go through.

This was a strange concept and I didn't particularly like it at first, but it's good :0

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I feel I ought to cry for Harry but the tears are stuck in my throat. Everything just feels so hallow and broken. This might be the first fic where I actually wanted Harry to get back together with Ginny.
I should probably take your angst marked fics more seriously. Thank you for sharing!

I have to say that when I clicked on this, I wasn't expecting it to be this well written.

Acceptance that your former life is over does not mean that you are whole again. It simply means that you are finally be able to see a future. That while you climb out of the deep pit that is depression you are able to pick up the pieces of your hopes, dreams, values, convictions, your moral compass you had to let go in your dispair because it was too much, too raw and you were simply too tired to fight for them. Many people crumble or live a half life still too tired to really care. Others will always struggle not to fall back.
But Harry is a survivor. He will crawl out of the pit and his
core will be stronger for it. He will take what is left and
carve himself a future.
I am familiar with loss and depression. Compliments, there
was a lot I recognized in your story. The anger, the dispair,
the numbness, how you feel yourself drifting away, how
nothing matters anymore, how you simply roll over and let
things happen. Even how you can get mad at the person
you lost. And the struggle to accept. With the help of your
familie and friends, physical labor or sports , the routine of
your job. You realise that you lost a lot but that person was
not the only reason you lived for. Or in Harry's case not the
only reason he died and choose to live for. Chapeau, very
What I don't understand is though, is the conclusion.
Perhaps it is because I'm not a native english speaker and I
simply don't get it but the thought of Harry settling in a real
marriage life with Draco? No, I can't see that ever happen.
To different, too much history and the nature of the Veela
will work against them. And there biggest chasm is Harry's
sexuality. Harry is not attracted to men. Like he was born
male, he was born straight. I can see them become friends.
I can see Harry continue to do the right thing and support
and not shame him when in company of Draco's peers. I
can see him make a home in his rooms in the Manor. But
the Manor will never be his home. Again too different, too
much history, too alien. In time Narcissa can become a
friend as long they don't talk about pureblood politics,
pureblood beliefs, the war, pureblood culture, traditions ,
Narcissa's upbringing, Harry's upbringing, etc, etc. I can
see Harry commited to keep Draco healthy. But Draco will
never shine, because Harry doesn't need protection, caring
for and he will always abhor Draco's possesiveness. And
last but not least, Harry will never forget the time Draco
was given the choice to let Harry go without the death
sentence and Draco choose to keep the bond because
Harry was hisss.
