NOTES: Harry's POV


Excerpt:
“I know.” Harry smiled. “I just wanted to thank you for your help,” he said, fiddling with the hem of his crimson sleeves. “Maybe—maybe you’d be up for grabbing a cup of coffee after we wrap up the case?”

“Why?” Snape narrowed his eyes suspiciously.

It was not the yes Harry hoped for, but it was not a no.

“I really enjoyed spending time with you today,” Harry said. “And I’ve been thinking about you a lot recently. I really suspect I might’ve been cursed.”

Well, maybe that last part was not such a great thing to say. Snape’s face went blank, something that Harry hadn’t realised had been open all this time shutting.

“I suggest you seek professional help, then,” he spat, spun around and threw the door open. “Wait! I didn’t mean it like that!”

The door closed with a bang behind Snape’s back, refusing to let Harry in as he rattled the handle and then tried every unlocking charm he knew. Never one to give up, Harry tore a sheet out of his notebook, scribbled an apology and pushed it underneath the door. As he thumped at it, the dark wood glowed, heating up and scorching his fingers.

Back in the office, Ron took one look at him and got out the firewhiskey from his secret stash. “How did you fuck up this time?”

Harry downed his glass and reached for a refill.

“Uh-huh.” Ron, the traitor, took the bottle away. “It’s too early for drinking your sorrows away, and Robards is still onto you for the Hobbs incident,” he said. “Now spill.”

After Harry recounted the events, restlessly pacing across the office, Ron hit his head against his desk.

“I know,” Harry said, flinging himself on his chair, a picture of misery.


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Wonderful and funny creature!fic (Harry is a Veela) that will have you in stitches a few times, so beware. :) It‘s well-written, sharply in character and has a really great characterization of Ron, too

It‘s about Senior Auror Harry who tries to solve a case and has to consult Snape who works for the Ministry. Harry is hopelessly in love with Snape but he can‘t find the right words in Snape‘s presence so he blurts out these awkward inappropriate things. Lol it‘s really funny, and the wooing gifts he buys for Snape… so great. I loved this a lot!
