Fic: Nervous Realization (Harry/Draco) PG  
Title: Nervous Realization
Author: blue_icy_rose
Rating: PG
Challenge: The Five Stages of Love
Stage: Attraction
Summary: Harry has just realized something about himself.
Disclaimer: You think J.K. Rowling would notice if I stole them and locked them up in a room for me to keep? Oh, you do? Well then, I guess I won't. Which means that they belong to her and not me and I make no money from this.
Author's Note: Okay, this is the first thing I've ever written for Harry/Draco and I'm a bit nervous about it. So please feel free to let me know what you think. And as you can see, I wrote it for stagesoflove. Enjoy!

Also posted at stagesoflove.

He would have cursed anyone who would have told him that this year he’d find him attractive. Up until this year, he had been certain he only liked girls despite the fact that each experience had been a disaster.

And then he’d seen Draco Malfoy for the first time in months as he’d been boarding the train.

He was taller, leaner and he no longer gelled his hair. Not to mention his eyes. Had they always been that piercing silver?

He was a boy. A young man.

He was Malfoy.

How did you admit that you wanted to be with the person who took such pleasure in making your life hell?

Harry had faced Voldemort and won, he’d seen more in his short lifetime than many would see if they lived a nice long life. But nothing terrified him more than the thought of what Ron and Hermione’s reactions would be once he told them he liked Malfoy.

Of course, he’d have to tell them he’d realized he was gay first.

Harry sighed as he looked across the Great Hall. He was afraid of what their reactions would be. He didn’t want to lose them because he wasn’t sure what he’d do if he did. His gaze moved over faces pausing on Malfoy as he smirked at Blaise Zabini.

Maybe there was one other thing that terrified him more than telling Ron and Hermione he liked Malfoy. He quickly looked away, laughing at something Seamus had said even as his stomach clenched.

After all, he still had to tell Malfoy.

Ohhhhhh, I'm loving it!
Very interesting....wanna see how Harry will manage to tell this bunch of people that he's gay, and that he's "Malfoy-sexual" XD Ron and Mione's faces will be priceless, I'm sure :P

Can't wait to read more! ^^

PS:. Will we have a Draco POV? Or it will be all Harry?
Nicole: Can do. Because I'm helpful like that.blue_icy_rose on March 29th, 2006 07:29 pm (UTC)
Hmm...I'm not sure if I'll have Draco's POV in this one. But I also claimed Harry/Draco for the Trouble in Paradise challenge in the same community and I have a feeling that Draco's POV would be so fun to do in that.

And whew! I'm so glad you're liking it so far. I've been itching to write them for...well, quite awhile but I never actually worked up the nerve to post anything I got written. (So of course, the first time I do, I claim them for a period of five weeks and for two challenges. *rolls eyes at self* No, I'm not too insane.)

Thanks for reading!

Oh, I like it muchly. You captured the beginning attraction stage well. Very nicely done. I'd love to be a painting on the wall to see him telling Malfoy of his sudden conclusions. But then again, I'm evil.

P.S. Icon love. :D We match!

Hee! Great minds and all that. ^_^

And thank you! I'm so glad you like it and that you think I captured the feelings well.

Pfft...evil, shmevil. Who wouldn't want to be a painting on the wall for that conversation? I'm right there with you. Now...off to right the second stage. Romance. Yikes.

Poor Harry! Telling his friends, and most importantly Draco, of his feelings is a daunting task, indeed! I am looking forward to more of this!
Nicole: Ah. Gotta love dead pan!Spike.blue_icy_rose on March 30th, 2006 10:12 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad you're liking this so far! ^_^

Thank you so much! I was right there with Harry in being nervous but I'm much less nervous after having posted. LOL.

Oops indeed. Now that Harry's gone through death by hugs, who will Draco be with now?! ~_^

Thanks again!

Short but direct, I liked it. You had a pretty good rhythmic flow which made it easier to read, however the ending couple of sentances seemed a bit unclear. I get what you were trying to say but it isn't very clear. However, your description of Malfoy getting on the train was top notch. I gonna save this on my computer for that bit alone. So yeah, I followed the link from the new chapter you posted, so I'm gonna go read that now.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it, especially the bit about Malfoy getting on the train. And looking at my last couple sentences, I can see how they'd be a bit unclear so I'll know to watch out for that in the future. Thanks for pointing it out and for reading!
