I love this SO much. The way you portray Lucius makes him just pop right off the screen and walk and talk.
I adore the quotes you chose - they are perfect and add very much to the story instead of detract as they sometimes do in some stories.
I love the little back and forth conversation between Harry and Lucius where he starts to annoy Lucius. This bit is absolutely perfect and totally in character:
"“You have something I want, and I have something you need,” the man continued, twining one arm around Harry’s slender waist - green eyes widened, but he did not pull away.
“Which is?” in a kind of breathy challenge, not so subtly demanding an explanation - Lucius’ lips curled up in the corners.
“You are the only one who can defeat the Dark Lord;” and when, exactly, had Lucius moved so that his breath fluttered across Harry’s ear, startlingly warm… winter wasn’t warm, right? “I am the only one who can unleash that power.”
A mouth on his neck, just touching - voice as smooth as honey, that tongue flittering against his skin with every word; Harry’s pulse raced. “And I don’t work for free.”
‘So, in other words, you want me to kill Voldemort so you can be top dog…’
Shouldn’t that be a bad thought?"
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this. Very hot and still thought provoking.
The little sarcastic comment when Harry sees Lucius' aura "Like Magic?" is just spot on. Too perfect.
Sorry to gush so but can't help it... you capture these characters so well but you also always add something 'more' to your stories that makes me think. Just exquisite writing.
