Summary: Harry's tired and hungry, and all he wants to do is order some dinner. This turns out to be a bigger deal than he anticipated.

Poor Harry just wanted some take away after a long day at work as an Auror but ends up caught up in a mystery that is as intriguing as it is wonderfully hot. Someone is leaving take away menus designed to get Harry's full attention. But is everything all it seems? And how is Severus involved? Clever, funny, and quite possibly the most unconventional seduction one could imagine. But it, unsurprisingly, makes perfect sense for these two.


Review: Peeking in the Window: Eight Vignettes
Title: Peeking in the Window: Eight Vignettes
Author: [personal profile] suitesamba
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,370 words
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Character Death (not Severus/Harry)*
Summary: Eight vignette-style pieces from Harry and Severus’ life together. Falling in love, aging, learning to dance, holding vigil, mourning, loving—together.

There is a fine line between sentiment and melodrama and "Peeking in the Window: Eight Vignettes" manages to stay on the side that avoided the need for needless hand-wringing. It is a gentle tale of eight moments in time that chronicles a coherent progression of the relationship between Severus and Harry. The relationship is pared down to what is necessary, with no excess to distract from the snapshots of their lives together. This fic is stylistically beautiful, moving, gentle, elegant, and full of the ups and downs of a love that isn't fairy-tale romantic and yet is nevertheless perfect for the men who feel it so keenly.
