I'm back! And going to sleep. A proper RL update - and maybe some porn! - to follow.

OMG so tired. First week at uni is always so crazy. But I'm pleased to be sort-of back. And how do we celebrate? Yes! With angst!

Title: The Opposite of Love
Word count: 100
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG
Warnings: angst
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Author’s Notes: This was written for hd100’s challenge, hate.

The first time, they mauled each other with their mouths. A week later was their first ‘date’; they snarled, and slammed together again.

Seven years later, they live together. Every morning they wake, share a perfunctory kiss, then spend the day living their separate lives.

They don’t fight any more. They don’t make love either.

Draco doesn’t know what Harry’s doing at work, or if he’s happy. They nod politely in the corridor and sleep side-by-side, without touching.

Draco knows that if nothing else, his relationship with Harry has taught him something.

The opposite of love isn’t hate; it’s indifference.

Oh angst...
I would love to see a continuation of this, but only if it had a happy ending. =P

In that case, no continuation! This version of Harry and Draco just don't have anything left when the fiery passion is burnt through. Sorry.

Sad fic is sad.

But we will get to see you soon!

Sad fic is sad. Lol, shame I didn't write something uber-perky to celebrate being back. But being insanely busy = angst, apparently. (Although right now, I'm writing porn.)

Love the realism in this. Wonderful work!

Thanks! Although now I think I have to write about them overcoming conflict and being blissfully happy anyway.

Aww wow. I like it. :) [Sorry, not in a very talkative mood.]

Just to say I've friended you, because well duh - you're fun :D

Why thank you. :)

Icon love. Your icon looks much more like you than mine looks like me.
