Oh, oh. I love it, I love it. You can't believe how overjoyed I was when I saw that you had claimed the prompt - and then sad, to think that you were gone and would never write it. I'm thrilled that you're back making a special guest appearance.
So much to love about this story - the opening paragraph had me hooked! The vivid description, straight into the world where dragons fly. I love the glimpses you write of the reserve - I get a sense of incredible beauty and rough dwellings and people living with joy and purpose. Charlie is great, practical and empathic and cheerfully alive.
And the sex. *Melt*. And the emotional bonding. *Dissolve*. No one writes snape/lupin quite like you.
