Title: A Blade in the Soul Rating: NC-17 Pairing: Harry/Neville Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended. Summary: A desperate act leaves Harry and Neville equally shaken and in need of comfort. Warnings: Hurt/comfort, angsty fluff, or is it fluffy angst? Author's notes: Merry Smutmas, cjmarlowe! I tried to include lots of licking and kissing and oral as requested. Hopefully it's enough to please. Many thanks to Gina for her patience and to my betas for looking it over.
