This is a story that most any Harry/Draco shipper would enjoy. I definitely did. Taken from the site of simmysim (who's befriending of me I have wasted no time in taking advantage of--your site is grand!), the story has some sort of air about it which I have never encountered. Nor have I encountered the author, but the single work screams talent.
These newly released Harry Potter book covers have me really hopping--figuratively speaking, of course, for that cannot be good for illness-induced dizziness. I've always been partial to the American versions of the covers. They've always seemed to meet the midway point between cartoony and realistic that I like most in drawings. The adult covers always are so bland that they turn me away (I am admittedly one who judges a book by its cover). Most comments I have viewed lean toward the adult version of the Order of the Phoenix as being the best; I like its background, but the Phoenix in the picture is sort of...well...ugly methinks. I cannot tell whether it purposely was done to look like a statue.
I find myself over-analyzing the dreamy blue cover of the American edition. The three doors in the background (there very well might be four doors, alas Harry's ruffled head is blocking the view) immediately caused me to think, rather than Harry simply standing in front of some doors, that he was going to make a very important decision in the story. As always, I generally CANNOT STAND symbolism and do know that traditionally, the books (being for children) are drawn precisely from physical events in the books, which was why I smacked myself (once again, figuratively) for thinking such a thing. In conclusion, I wished the cover had had a close up on Harry's bottom.
