Where did the time go?! I only started this, oh, about 3 minutes ago I'm sure!

I am so made up to see a fic that makes light of all the potentially stifling depressiveness of the epilogue - and not only that, but that does it in such syle. This fic is f***ing hilarious. The number of times I snorted or laughed out loud are too numerous to count, and it's the little things like Hermione driving a Vauxhall Vivaro (which says so much to a Brit like me about what sort of mother and wife she is), and Harry being the only one out of his year at school who isn't losing his hair (nice way of normalising those two hideous words; 'receding hairline'). I am in love with the way all the main characters have such great senses of humour, even Malfoy, who likes to pretend to be cool and collected but I can see the cracks (should that be his crack...?) oh yes I can.

The oneupmanship that seems to be a battle only Malfoy knows is running makes for brilliant reading. Harry is just so oblivious - until the moment when that one thing just clicks in his head, and then he's all schoolboy Gryffindor again with his focus and determination. The swing between his irritation at Malfoy's punctiliousness and his most ardent admiration of Malfoy's delicious personal attributes is total comedy. The dialogue between them is addictive.

Can't not mention the sex, which is - oh my god - fantastic. You manage to write activities we all read on a regular basis with such an unrepentant dirtiness that it feels like I've never read about anyone being rimmed before. I feel mucky and sweaty all over - in the best possible way. :D Perhaps there's hope that Harry and Draco will become the Southwarks' replacement Woollsleys?

This fic is an absolute joy, and to read it during these sadly heterosexual post-epilogue days lifts my heart more than I can say.

I'm sure we're going to see some pink knicker artwork from a certain someone pretty soon, too.

Love it, love it, love it. (And yes, I did edit the comment so I could squee a bit more. :) )

Hee! I meant what I said in my author's notes on the version I posted to my journal - you were an absolutely indispensable element. Without you, I'm not at all sure this fic would have seen the light of day, let alone made its way on to paper. Thank you for all your inspiration and support and encouragement and lightening-fast editing. You know that I love you madly, but it certainly doesn't hurt to say it again.

*loves you*
