Guh. I've been waiting to read this for the past few days but I really wanted to read it all in one sitting. You are made of gold. I can't believe your granted my long fic request, I always put it in there but never expect someone to spend so much time on my fic. I'm really flattered. Okay, now onto how wonderful this story is and how much I love, love, love it.
Um, the kissing. Holy God. And their conversation. James is so knowledgeable about his confidence and his doubtfulness of Teddy and his' relationship. Their cockiness, on both of their sides, is perfect. I love how stubborn they are. How obviously boyish they are, even when they are trying to be mature.
Bagman is a joy.
Teddy had kept it all this time, repairing only the hinges and the lock. Every gouge in the leather, every nick, every scrape - they were made by his father Oh lord. What are you trying to do? Kill me? Guh. And I LOVE how he still feels ten years old and that his father is the greatest man who ever lived. It's so fucking beautiful and it reminds me of Harry. It's beautiful to see how Harry has rubbed off onto Teddy, and he still has some of the qualities from his father. Like the conversation that he has with Ms. Hopkins! It was wonderfully reminiscent of Harry and Remus in Harry's 3rd year and I loved how you wrote in all these canonical moments that really show Teddy's character. And the fact that he's having trouble with the amount of work to assign made me smile so wide. It's just so damn cute. Especially asking Albus. ; ) I just love the struggle and the adjustment. It's very real. Guh. And his discussion with James and his fear that he will be persecuted for being gay. His worrying is really adorable. In a foreboding sense.
"I loved doing schoolwork at sixteen," Teddy said, picking up his tea now.
"Was that before or after you sneaked back in from Hogsmeade?"
"Usually before. Too pissed to do anything afterwards." The corner of Teddy's mouth arched slightly. Fucking adorable. You know what else is? Harry and Ginny's relationship. It's so very well done. Especially the Quidditch comment.
Oh they fight like boys! And i love it. Not to mention Teddy peaking at James' ass.
"Fine. Detention, and I swear to God, James, if you open your mouth one more goddamned time I will drag your arse back to your mother myself." Teddy's voice came out more as a growl, and he could feel the hair on the back of his neck stand up as he spoke. So hot.
