I started writing it on a whim, without reading a lot in the fandom (as is typical for me), and later learned that I’d done all the things HP fanfic writers weren’t supposed to do: make the boys adults (this was just after book 5), set the fic in the US, write lots of OCs, show the boys having sex with OCs before finally getting them together, and so on. But I was new in that fandom and I didn’t know the rules, and all I really wanted to do was write my story. So I posted chapters to my LJ and thought just my friends would read it. Quite a lot of people read it, in the end, and many of them even enjoyed it. Amazingly enough, ten years later, I still get comments on it.
So Happy Birthday, LMH! And may that Harry and Draco live happily ever after. :-)
