The boys in the Slytherin dorm room all turned as the door slammed open, Star on the other side.

"Draco!" she shouted happily, her arms out. "I'm back!"

"Ack!" Blaise Zabini shouted, diving onto his bed and pulling his curtains shut. "Pellerin! I'm in my underwear!"

The Slytherin girl smirked as she walked into the room, "oh please, Zabini. You don't have anything I haven't seen before."

The other boys snickered at that.

Christmas was over, and all the students had returned to the school all hyper and excited from their mini vacations. Draco and Harry were an official couple, and they loved being together; although they weren't about to admit it to the whole school yet. In due time they would.

"Malfoy, I demand details!" Star said when she reached him. "I just know that you've been entertaining yourself while I was gone."

Draco sighed, rolling his eyes as he dragged Star out of the room by her arm. The whole time she was demanding to know what went on, smirking in amusement. The other boys just watched in confusion. They were smart enough to know not to ask, though. At least not if they wanted to live the rest of their lives. Draco never told them anything, unless he wanted to. Only Star could get away with bugging him and live to tell about it. Well, Harry could too. But they didn't know about that at the moment.

"So?" Star asked when they stopped outside the entrance to the Slytherin Common Room. "Did you and Potter get together?"

"Yes, Star. We got together."

"Yay!" The girl actually started *cheering*, jumping up and down excitedly.

Draco raised an eyebrow at her, snickering. "What the hell has gotten into you?" he asked in amusement. "Did you and Granger finally give into your feelings?"

"*What*?!" Star stopped jumping, glaring at Draco like he was insane. "What the fuck are you going on about? Me and *Granger*?! Hell no!"

"Well, that calmed you down," Draco laughed.

"I don't like you anymore."

"Well, I never liked *you*."

Star didn't seem up to teasing for once, she just crossed her arms and glared. Draco laughed.

"Oh come on, Star. You know you want to shag with Hogwart's smartest Gryffindor!"

"Potter is making you soft."

Draco just shrugged, not agreeing or disagreeing.

"The day I get together with Granger, is the day I care about muggles!"

"Well, that day might be closer then you know," Draco grinned.

Star just glared at him, before turning and re-entering the Common Room.


"Shit! That's fucking *freezing*!" Draco yelped as Harry dumped snow down his back.

The Gryffindor laughed, then ran as the other boy started chasing him across the snowy grounds of Hogwarts. Today was the student's last day off before classes resumed now that everyone was back, and all the students were spending it the best ways they knew how. Some had even started a friendly game of Quidditch.

Star was one of the only students still inside. She was sitting at one of the large windows in the Great Hall, her head resting against the glass as she watched her fellow students outside. Star laughed as Draco tackled Harry, both of them falling into the snow.

"Cute, aren't they?"

The Slytherin turned her head at the voice, seeing Hermione standing a few inches away with a steaming mug in her hands.

"Very," Star admitted, a small smile on her face.

"Here, I brought this for you," Hermione handed her the mug.

Star took it, taking a sip. It was cocoa.

"Let me guess, Weasley and Finnigan are spending 'quality time' together?" Star smirked.

Hermione laughed. "You could say that. I thought I'd give them this one more day, before I start bugging them to get back to their work. We'll be having our N.E.W.T.S. before you know it."

"Do you ever do *anything* besides study? I mean, you could be out in the snow right now or something. Give your brain a rest, Granger."

Hermione smiled. "Worried about me, Star? And besides," she continued before the other girl could argue with what she said, "I'd rather spend my time with you."

Star raised an eyebrow, "not going to give up, are you."


"Why? I'm not--"

Star was cut off as Hermione closed the distance between them and kissed her. Star's eyes drifted closed as she opened her mouth, giving Hermione the access she wanted. They shivered as their tongues slid against each other. Hermione pulled her tongue slowly out of Star's mouth, beckoning the other girl's tongue to follow into her own mouth. Star's free hand slid to the back of Hermione's neck, pulling her closer as her tongue entered her mouth.

When the kiss was broken, Star's eyes stayed closed. Hermione leaned into the girl, smiling.

"All I'm asking for is a chance, Star. You can give me that, can't you?"

Gray eyes slowly opened, locking with Hermione's own eyes. Star regarded her for a moment, looking slightly dazed.

"I suppose I could," she murmured.

Hermione looked pleased, grabbing the other girl's hand and pulling her from her seat. "Come on."

"Where're we going?" Star asked, having no choice but to follow as Hermione dragged her out of the hall.

"Well," the other girl said, "the dungeons are *way* too cold for me."

"What does that have to do with anything?"

Hermione smiled almost wickedly over her shoulder, "I think you should become acquainted with *my* room, don't you?"

Catching on, Star smirked. She hugged the other girl from behind, her chin on Hermione's shoulder and her lips next to her ear. "Why, Hermione, I never knew you had it in you."

"There's a lot you don't know about me, Star. Would you like to find out a few more things?"

"Do you have to ask?"


Harry couldn't care less that he was lying on his back, the cold snow under him seeping through his robe. All that mattered was the passionate kiss he was sharing with his lover, who was lying on top of him.

Draco broke the kiss, smiling down at the Boy-Who-Lived. His dark-haired love looked so angelic lying there, his face red from the cold air and his lips a little swollen from loving kisses. Draco lifted his hand and brushed the other boy's bangs from his face, revealing the famous lightning-bolt scar. "You know something?"

"What's that?"

"For once, that bitch McGonagall did something useful."

Harry smiled. "You could say that."

"I can and I will," Draco grinned. "In more ways then one."

He dipped his head, capturing Harry's lips in another kiss. One of many to come.


Crystal: Well, there you have it. The fic is finally finished! ^_^ It's kinda sad -_-; Please cheer me up by reviewing! ^_^
