Summary: Harry has this thing he does...

Start at the beginning - Meow

Sequel to Harry's New Terms

Draco tapped his foot in frustration as he waited for Potter. He'd been working with the Gryffindor for two weeks now and, while he was closer to achieving his Animagus form on his own, he hadn't quite mastered it yet.

It annoyed him to no end that he needed Potter, of all people, to help him with this task. Unfortunately, unless he wanted to tell someone else about his predicament, he was stuck. He sighed and cast a Tempus Charm. Realistically, Potter never took long showers after playing chase the stick; it just felt that way.

And how ridiculous was that, anyway? The idiot could have asked Draco to do anything he wanted and what did he want? He wanted Draco to play fetch with him every afternoon.

Granted Potter was pretty adorable as a puppy, at least as far as smelly dogs that ruined your good robes go. However, Draco's favorite part of their sessions together wasn't the stick throwing, or the Animagus training, or Potter petting his ears, although that came in a close second. No, the Slytherin's favorite part of the day was...

The door to the loo clicked open. The blond lifted his head slowly, trying to look casual. Potter wandered myopically into the room, feeling around on various tables. Draco smiled. His favorite part of the day was watching Potter walk around in a towel while he looked for his glasses. Whether the Gryffindor deliberately removed his glasses before he went into the loo was anyone's guess. Draco rather suspected it was accidental but he certainly wasn't going to complain. He leaned back and his lips still stretched in a wide grin. Today Potter's glasses were on a table beside the couch. The dark-haired boy would have to walk right in front of Draco to fetch them.

For some reason he never asked for Draco's assistance during his search. That was just as well considering the fact that the Slytherin's mouth went inexplicably dry and his ability to speak became rather limited any time he gazed upon that delectable, Quidditch-toned chest. Potter finally came toward him, walking close enough that Draco could see individual droplets of water as they ran down his damp skin. He debated snatching the towel away but decided against it. The last thing he needed was to offend Potter's Gryffindor sensibilities by turning him into an unwilling exhibitionist.

His companion finally found his glasses and shoved them rather forcefully on his nose. "Ah, there you are, Draco."

The blond bit down a snide comment about the fact that he hadn't moved since Potter left. Instead he replied, "Draco? Since when am I Draco to you?"

Potter blushed as if realizing his slip, and glanced down. His blush darkened as he apparently remembered he was clad only in a towel. "Let me... um... let me just fetch my clothes shall I?" He bolted for the loo.

Draco couldn't resist one last remark. "No need to get dressed on my account, Harry."

The Gryffindor froze with his hand on the door and turned. "Is that so?"

Now it was Draco's turn to blush. Before he could formulate a reply Potter gave him a decidedly wicked grin. "I'll be sure to keep that in mind, Draco."

As soon as he was gone the Slytherin flopped back on the couch in a most un-Malfoy-ish manner. How did Potter always manage to get the better of him?

Me too!! I think I could watch Harry wander around a room in just a towel for hours on end! LOL!

Yay you updated! I was scared for a second there :P

Aah yes, I can easily see how that would be Draco's favorite part of the day *G*

I was thinking yesterday about how I would make you update by discussing my theories about how Dobby was really C-3PO and Kreacher was R2D2 not trusting Harry/Luke at all in the beginning... Oh well, will have to leave that insane discussion inside my head for now! :D
Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on May 29th, 2008 03:52 am (UTC)
Sorry about the long delay!! I solemnly swear that I'll never start posting something & then leave it. It makes me crazy to get chapters & chapters into a WIP only to discover it has been abandoned! ARGH!

Yes, I think we could start a towel!Harry fanclub! LOL!!

BAHAHA to the C-3PO and R2D2 comparisons!! Awesome!! But I can top that one for insane discussions -- dysonrules and ... my husband of all people... have prodded me into (eventually) writing a Harry Potter / Disney's Beauty & The Beast crackfic. Eventually. I'm told that star_sailor13 has already done a few idea illustrations but I haven't seen them yet. I hear they involve Lucius and a few fellow Death Eaters as the busty tavern wenches. *snort* Oh the things I get myself talked into! ^_^

Heh, you think THIS is a hateful cliffie? You should see where Ringfic is right now. I think Dyson's going to fly out and personally strangle me if I don't update soon. That or worse, she's going to stop updating my fic. NOOOO!!!!

Sorry for the delay!! RL tried to eat me, it does that from time to time.

I love the *insert shagging* -- hahaha!!! I think he should have done that too but Draco informed me he liked his bollocks where they were thank you very much so he refused. Darn him!
dargeeling on May 28th, 2008 01:51 pm (UTC)

Cheryl Dysondysonrules on May 28th, 2008 02:51 pm (UTC)
I think Draco should hide Harry's glasses... somewhere. LOL! I can't believe you've turned me into a catboy lover.

I love this fic. And I love YOU. *love love love love*

Byaghro: StarSailor H/Dbyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:12 am (UTC)

Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)
Yes, I'm pretty jealous of Draco myself at the moment! LOL!!!!

Harry can't be a goody-goody ALL the time, right?

Glad you love it!! WOO!! ^_^

Kitty is pleased with your update, and almost-naked Harry.
Hurray for petting Draco's ears.
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:15 am (UTC)
Awww! *pets Kitty* *giggle*

I can't imagine NOT being pleased with almost-naked Harry, but that's just me! Haha!!!

I'm glad you liked it!

Oh... cute! CUTE!!! I love Draco's very Slytherin tactics to see Harry half dressed. Loved this chapter.
Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
The thought of Draco casually sitting on the couch while covertly tracking Harry's every move just makes me giggle!!

YAY! I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter! *dances*

Draco is so bad. In a "I-would-so-totally-do-the-same-thing" kinda way. I'm surprised he doesn't just hide the glasses for more watching time. I loved it and I'm so glad you are back!
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:19 am (UTC)
Yea, I'm guessing he might move Harry's glasses if it seems like Harry could find them too quickly, but that's just my guess. LOL!!

YAY, I'm glad to be back! I've missed my lovely flist!! *squishes flist*
eyes-of-bloodanimelover1988 on May 28th, 2008 08:53 pm (UTC)
oh my! *nose bleed* nakkid Harry! lol Please update again soon! I love Draco's favorite part of the training. lol
Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on May 29th, 2008 04:20 am (UTC)
BAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! The mental image of Harry leaning over to pick up his glasses & Draco suddenly having an anime-style nosebleed made me laugh for ten minutes straight! LOLZ!! TOO FUNNY!!!! ^_^
Jaeenchanted_jae on May 29th, 2008 05:15 am (UTC)
Woo-hoo! I love catboy!Draco, and I love that he's attracted to puppy!Harry. Heh.
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on May 31st, 2008 07:35 am (UTC)
Aren't they just adorable?? It's cavity inducing really! LOL!
Ai, aye, eye!: Slytheringeminai5 on May 29th, 2008 05:09 pm (UTC)
I love how tongue-tied Draco is in this. This whole series is utterly adorable!

I can't wait, however, for Draco to prop Harry's glasses on his crotch and wait for Harry to "fetch" them. :D
Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on May 31st, 2008 07:36 am (UTC)
Yay for adorable!! I love fluff as much as the next fangirl but I swear I didn't mean for this to be quite so saccharine! I'm glad folks are enjoying it anyway! LOL!

Re: Fetching -- BAHAHA!!!!! Oh, I do love how you think!
