Aww, LJ's Christmas theme is up! And there's snow!

(WARNING: Scrooge moment. OMG, I am fucking freezing, you guys. I got GOOSEBUMPS when I went into the kitchen - God knows what we'll do tomorrow with the severe weather warning. Stupid postwar houses and their shitty construction.)

Still, nothing can destroy my Christmas spirit. I never get Christmas spirit, so this time I'll enjoy it.

Title: In A Naked Way
Word count: 200
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: drunken fluff
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 dracoharry100’s Christmas Challenge. The prompt is fruitcake.

Draco wrinkled his nose. He might be drunk off his arse, but he retained enough muscle control for disdainful expressions. “Christmas cake is heavy and the icing’s always an inch thick and I can’t be doing with it at all.”

“I love fruitcake,” Harry said solemnly, toasting the house-elves. The elves were clustered around the two professors, watching them anxiously. Draco ignored this with aristocratic indifference to the help: he wanted to get drunk and ignore the loneliness that seemed to scour the inside of his chest at Christmas.

With Harry. Draco smiled and retorted, “You are a fruitcake, Potter.”


It was true. Draco thought that made it worse: Harry liked men. He just didn’t like Draco.

Well, he did these days. Harry just didn’t like him in a naked way.

“You don’t like me in a naked way,” he said sadly. He picked disconsolately at his Christmas cake. It was horrible.

Harry blinked at him. “...What?”

“What?” Draco said.

“You said – oh, never mind.” Harry leant forward, touched Draco’s jaw lightly, holding him suspended in the warmth of Harry’s fingers, and kissed him.


“Yes.” Draco’s chest was full of a golden bubble, and Harry was kissing him again.

I finally knitted myself some gloves today, which I've been meaning to do for ages, because it is so cold!

Aww, this is very sweet in a warm and fuzzy way :D Silly Draco.

Very cool! I own no gloves, because I prefer putting a hand in a pocket and keeping the other one free to read as I walk. ;)

Silly Draco indeed! It was nice to write a little Christmas fluff.

I made fingerless gloves, allowing me to hold things effectively while having some warmth :D

Christmas fluff gives me masses of joy.

This is so cute! I love the words you use. "Harry leant forward, touched Draco's jaw lightly, holding him suspended in the warmth of Harry's fingers, and kissed him." There's something so soft and sweet about that line. Makes me wish I had someone to curl up with next to a fire with a cup of hot cocoa.... ;_;

Aww, thanks. :)

No sadface! No sadface caused by Christmas fluff! *gives you biscuits and candy canes and a warm blanket*

I laughed so hard at 'in a naked way'. I just want to hug Draco, but Harry's beat me to it, and that's much more enjoyable for all three of us. Good job! It was cute, almost managed to make me appreciate Christmas.
