Ha! I am oddly happy this fine evening. Have been ever since I took that Japanese test a day ago. I don't know what grade I got yet, but I feel very confident about how I did. I guess studying for a whole day paid off. I recognized everything and, though I didn't get everything right, I know I got a lot correct.



Okay, so usually I am not feeling so goofy. As a result of this odd occurence, we have a bit of fluffy sappiness on our hands tonight. Maybe a teensy bit OOC, but hell. I AM JOYOUS. I have dragged them all into joyousness with me. Feel free to latch on and be sappy!

Title: In Which Draco Malfoy Treats His Classmates To Bad Poetry Over Breakfast

Summary: How does Draco love thee? Let him count the ways...

Disclaimer: These boys are JK Rowling's, not mine. A touch of slash.

“How do I love thee?” Draco Malfoy yelled, sweeping a hand out to the blinking lot of students. “Let me count the ways.”

“Draco, for Heaven’s sakes, get off the table!”

Draco tried to nudge Pansy’s hand off his ankle with his other foot, and then resorted to scuffing crumbs in her direction until she slapped him and let go, muttering. He turned back to his flabbergasted audience and straightened his shirt huffily. “As I was saying.

He coughed into his hand. “Ahem... One. That was most definitely the time when I beat you in that duel sixth year and you had a high squeaky voice for six hours. I loved that. Two.”

Across the room, Harry Potter rose shakily to his feet. “Draco, uh, what are you doing?”

The blond Slytherin glared at him venomously. “Kindly shut up, Potter. I’m trying to express my feelings for you. Sit down and enjoy it.”

Harry sat, and Draco continued. “Two. That was when I had the opportunity to turn the Weasel into a giant beady-eyed mushroom but I settled for giving him fish scales and fins. I did that for you, Harry, and I hope you’re bloody happy.”

Harry clamped a hand over Ron’s mouth before his indignant shout could make itself known. Hermione soothed her boyfriend, patting his arm and looking sheepish. “Let’s just... let him finish, shall we?”

“Three. Most certainly the time I blew up that cauldron during our detention.”

“You did that on purpose?” Harry cried. Ron took the opportunity of Harry’s lack of attention to bite his hand hard. Harry yelped and pulled away.

Draco scowled ferociously at the interruption. “Well, you said you would give anything to get out of Snape’s classroom. I knew you’d appreciate it, despite the boils. Anyways. Four.”

The rest of the students gaped silently as Draco informed them of the time he’d knocked Harry off his broom at fifteen feet to keep him from getting hit by a bludger. The Slytherin looked incredibly pleased with himself and glanced at Harry with a genuinely happy smile. Harry blinked at him and rubbed his backside, still remembering that fall.

“Five. When I gave you four hours of detention so you wouldn’t have to write that scroll for McGonagall. Six—”

“That’s not love!” Heads swiveled to find Zacharias Smith standing indignantly, pointing at Draco. “Jeez, you call that love? That’s the worst kind of ‘love’ I’ve ever heard of! You could have killed him at least three out of those five times!”

Draco glared, hands on his hips. “Do you mind? I don’t appreciate the interruption when I’m trying to tell my boyfriend how I feel.”

“Oh, please,” Zacharias scoffed. He crossed his arms and smirked at Draco. “You don’t love him. You only hurt him, obviously!”

Several heads nodded in agreement. The Hufflepuff spread his arms wide. “Why don’t you do him a favor and just kill him already so he doesn’t have to suffer anymore?”

Expectant eyes turned back to the Slytherin table, waiting for the outburst of fury. But it was not to come. The light had gone out of Draco’s eyes. His shoulders slumped. He glanced at where Harry sat and opened his mouth... but closed it again without speaking. Even Ron was silent, watching Draco standing alone on top of the table, looking at his shoes. The Hall was absolutely still.


Gasps sounded. Everyone looked at the Gryffindor table. Harry had risen from his seat and was staring fixedly at the lone poet.

“When you conjured up helium balloons for six hours in the infirmary after the duel so we could have meaningful chipmunk conversation.”

Draco darted his eyes to Harry and looked away again. He shrugged wordlessly.

“Seven.” Now Harry was moving down the row, walking slowly. “When you stayed after hours in Potions fixing a tonic for Ron to rub on his scales to keep them from drying out.”

“I thought that was Harry,” Ron whispered. Hermione kissed his cheek and shook her head, smiling.

“Eight. That time you got caught stealing salve from Snape’s Potions supply and lost fifty points, got double detention, and still snuck into the infirmary to massage healing oil into my arms to get rid of the boils.” Harry was standing at the Slytherin table looking up at Draco.

The blond pursed his lips, refusing to return his gaze. “Hardly the point, Potter.”

“Nine,” Harry said, lifting a hand to touch Draco’s ankle. “The time you landed beside me and refused to catch the Snitch until I was back up on my broom again.”

“One of your best games, if I recall.” Draco looked down at Harry shyly.

“Ten.” Harry laced his fingers through Draco’s and gazed into his eyes. “The night you spent scrubbing trophies and convincing McGonagall to give me a week’s extension so I could get to the library to research that essay.”

Draco bit his lip. “But it was totally unnecessary in the first place.”

“Doesn’t matter,” Harry whispered, grinning. He got up onto the table and embraced his boyfriend. “It’s the thought that counts.”

Zacharias Smith sat down, a subdued but dreamy smile on his lips. Hermione sighed and laid her head on Ron’s shoulder. Ron, for his part, shook his head. “Funny, that. Rather sweet... and a bit odd.”

“Mm.” Hermione gave him a squeeze, grinning at the couple now snuggling happily on the Slytherin table. “It’s Draco and Harry. Odd is to be expected.”

Awww, that was adorable, sweetheart. I love how in real relationships, that's what it's really like. You don't feel like you do enough for the person you love, and sometimes it may seem like you hurt them more than help them, but to the person you love, those simple actions mean the world to them. ♥ Absolutely adorable.

Hahaha, thank you so much! You are so right: that's what relationships are. Messing up, and then making up for it, and finding out that maybe you didn't really mess up so badly in the first place. Glad you enjoyed it. :)

oh lovely! What a great find after hours of digging through Greek Casuistry and philosophical critiques! So cute, so fluff, so Draco!

japanese? yikes.. no thanks! I'll stay with my ancient literature *winks* hope you did well!

Date: 2004-10-12 08:52 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Haha, thank you for the lovely response! I know what that's like, finding a way to relax after a difficult day.

Hey, ancient lit has its quirks too. Good luck on that!

Oh how I love Great Hall H/D scenes. Loved all the little creative things you came up with for the 'countdown'.. Very sweet with a hint of the inside joke between them. Oh my heart broke when Draco lost his nerve, and soared when Harry finished the thoughts for him! GAH!
Perfect timing and so graceful.

Date: 2004-10-12 10:12 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Yayyy!! Hearts breaking and soaring! I love that. Hahahaha, you make me smile so wide, frulie. Thank you!

This really made me giggle. Draco being all melodramatic and sincere in his bizarre attempts to show affection and how everyone was reacting to it. And then...Harry adding in all the things that Draco did that were somewhat normal... Oh, this fic made my night. Again, I squee!!!!

Re: Oh SQUEE!!!!

*smooch* Chocolate for youuuuuuu! I've been trying to spread the happy vibes. Good to know I have been successful. I just had to have Harry save Draco. The boy tries so hard... his intentions are good, poor baby. ;>

that was saptacular

Date: 2004-10-12 11:48 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
I had to come in tonight at work because a certain co-worker is sick. So truthfully your story has cheered me right up with it's sappy goodness. Now, normally I don't go in for this sort of tripe, because let's face it, you read too much sappyness you get stuck in it, like tree sap. But since Draco is delightfully unromantic when he counts his ways, that totally makes up for it. I love how he's just a little ass in your stories, yet still loveable.

Gotta have the little-assiness that is Draco Malfoy after all. Thanks, fire, glad it cheered you up. And you are right about all that tree sap. Or should I say, squee sap. Keh. *rubs it off arms* Get it while it lasts... most likely I will tumble back into the depths of depression in no time and you will say "Hey, where's the Ru-sap?"

Then again, maybe not. :>

Ahahah - loved the last line. Odd is fantasmic, if you ask me. ;)

This was fluffy and good times. I liked how Hermione knew more about what was going on than Ron, and the way Harry stood up and continued it. I know it's something one sees a lot in movies, but it always makes me feel fluffy in the end. ♥

Thanks for sharing! I've missed you lately. I hope the raccoons haven't gotten to you.

Date: 2004-10-13 03:06 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Haha, I've missed you too! School has been powering up like mad. I had a huge test in Japanese and I have a few books to read within a week. Heh. My teachers are crazy.

I was totally feeling goofy last night. I believe the story might be a bit cliched, a ton sappy... but it was necessary at the time. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Almost have your birthday story done. Just one more scene to write, and I think you will enjoy it particularly.

No raccoons. Been a bit wary of possible mountain lions, but nothing so far, thank goodness. How are you?

Draco's view on love is a bit odd, but at least he tries.
And it's so cute that Harry understands him.
*giggles and squees*
