Harry caught the bouquet. Oh that's just too brilliant. I positively guffawed over that one.
Your wit is just so brilliant. Unexpected and zingy, with a fast paced, from-the-hip sort of humor. Oh, and one of my favourites:
“You think I’m his favorite? And no, I’m not going to tell you everything.”
“No, but until I marry Blaise, you’re the only one without red hair. And you always tell me everything.”
have I mentioned I absolutely love your writing? The pair of them watching the sun come up, I just melted with the sweet heat of it. My heart's going pitter-patter, and I thank you for it!!!
Author's Response: Thanks so so so much. It's been a while since I wrote this, so it's too cool to hear that it still resonates with people.

Reasona I admire you're writing:
"Hi,” said Draco.
“Hi, yourself. You know, I’ve seen better flirting,” Harry teased.
“This isn’t flirting,” stated Draco as he took the glass from Harry’s hand and kissed his neck.
Draco set the glass down before gently pushed Harry onto his back. “This, my dear, is foreplay.”
“You’re staring,” Draco said in between deep breaths.
In retreat, Draco turned his head to the side.
“Look at me,” Harry said softly.
Draco turned back and met Harry’s determined green-eyed stare.
“You’re beautiful,” Harry said a second time and then leaned forward and kissed Draco with every ounce of passion he could muster. Carefully, Harry pulled out and eased himself back in.
I admire plot above all things, but I also admire dialogue. You do both as well or better than anyone I've ever read. And when you put words in their mouths, they sound like themselves, and they sound like men. This is a terrific example of why you are so good at what you do.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I really appreciate the review. I think the most important thing I strive for when writing is realistic dialogue. :D
