Summary: Draco pouts broods in a dignified manner.

Start at the beginning - Meow

Sequel to Transformations

For the second time that term, Draco waited for a Gryffindor attack. For the second time that term, it never came.

Draco had considered launching a preemptive strike against Potter. He was sorely tempted to tell his fellow Slytherins how the great Harry Potter had kissed him in the Room of Requirement. However, there were two flaws in that plan. First, he was certain they would want to know why he was in the Room of Requirement with Potter in the first place. And while Draco was sure he could fabricate some reason that didn't include him receiving Animagus training from the Gryffindor, his close friends would see through that in an instant and want to know the real reason. Secondly, he wasn't entirely sure just who kissed whom. Potter probably had just as much right to claim that Draco kissed him.

Potter didn't even try to speak to him about the incident. Okay, perhaps he had tried to speak to him once or twice, but Draco's habit of diving into the nearest loo whenever the Gryffindor came close seemed to dissuade the dark-haired boy after a while. At first Draco was relieved when Potter finally left him alone. However, as the days passed, he grew more and more angry about the ordeal. How dared Potter kiss him and then not say anything? The git hadn't even tried to owl him. Surely the situation warranted an owl. The fact that Draco probably would have hexed the animal and sent it away was beside the point. Potter should have tried.

As his mood steadily blackened, Draco's housemates took to diving for cover whenever he entered the Common Room. None of them knew what was wrong, they just knew that he was apt to suddenly start throwing hexes without reason or provocation. After he'd cursed Millicent Bulstrode with a particularly nasty case of boils (that only improved her looks if you asked him), Pansy had yelled at him and threatened to cast several nasty curses on him herself if his attitude didn't improve immediately. Draco wasn't entirely sure that she even knew how to cast a few of the things she'd named, but you could never be sure with Pansy. In a huff, the blond had stormed to his room, throwing open his bed curtains in preparation for flopping on his bed and having a good, long sulk.

Instead of doing so, however, he froze when his eyes landed on the item lying innocently in the middle of his green satin comforter. Draco gingerly reached out and grasped the t-shirt between his thumb and forefinger. As he raised his arm the red material unfolded to reveal a Gryffindor crest. Intrigued, he grasped the shirt in both hands, turning it this way and that. He was amazed at how soft it felt. A quick search of his bed revealed no note of any kind, however, when he pulled the garment close he caught the distinct scent of Potter. He checked again for a note, casting several Revealing Charms but there was nothing.

What was Potter up to?

Oh, what is Harry up to? Stupid Draco. That's what he gets for pulling a kiss and run. :-)

Kiss & run -- hahaha!! I love it!! Harry has decided to try something different. Woo for sneaky Harry! ^_^

Thank you!! I think Harry is being sneaky but we'll see. ^_^

Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on June 4th, 2008 01:44 pm (UTC)
YAY for new readers!!! I'm glad you're enjoying the series! Harry is trying to be a bit of a Slytherclaw about the whole thing I think. ^_^

It's funny, I really didn't mean for the title of this to be "Grumpy Kitty Needs A Nap" but that's how I titled the email to my beta & she liked it so we ran with it! LOL!

Yea, Draco is being his usual "it couldn't possibly be my fault" self. And Harry is contemplating a Slytherclaw approach I think. ^_^

The mental image of Draco suddenly hiding from Harry in bathroom stalls just cracks me up. Probably not very in character for him but I can just see Crabbe & Goyle standing outside the stall, bewildered. "Do you think it's something you ate, Draco? You've been to the loo three times today." "Just shut up & keep guarding the door you prats." LOL!
chyldofeternity: OMFG YAYchyldofeternity on June 3rd, 2008 11:09 am (UTC)
Oh My God! I just about DIED when Draco got mad that Harry didn't attack him AND didn't even try to talk to him even though he was avoiding Harry by jumping into the loo! That is such a Draco Malfoy thing to do! "It's not MY fault that I was avoiding you and you never managed to talk to me. You should have tried harder!" ZOMG!

I have so much squishy!Love for you right now ^^ I wanna bear your children! Except that it would be awkard and wrong and all that stuff....so I'll settle for being your fanboy and running around in a cheerleading outfit! *Bounces around waving pompoms screaming Go By Go!*
Ai, aye, eye!: SO HAPPY!geminai5 on June 3rd, 2008 04:27 pm (UTC)
Erm, yeah, ditto EVERY SINGLE THING Chyldofeternity said, well, except for changing "fanboy" to "fangirl"...and that, yeah, my bearing your children would be, not only awkward, but physically impossible. ^_^

Go By GO!!! *\(^o^)/*

Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on June 4th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC)
YAY! Glad you're enjoying the silliness that is my brain! LOL!

I'm trying to convince Draco to sleep in the shirt because I think it would be adorable but he is resisting mightily. Silly Draco! ^_^

WOO!! Thank you!!!

*giggle* I'm getting a rush of Slytherin delight already knowing the next part. BWAH HA HA HA HA!!!

Draco was the hysterical LURVE in this one.

*adores you, as usual*
Byaghro: Bad Ass Uke!byaghro on June 4th, 2008 02:27 pm (UTC)
As my DARLING beta, my WONDERFUL seme and my FIRST cheerleader -- you are completely entitled to your Slytherin glee over knowing what comes next! LOL!

I don't know how truly in character the whole hiding from Harry via loo diving (which just sounds wrong) would be but I can just see Crabbe & Goyle standing outside the stall, bewildered. "Do you think it's something you ate, Draco? You've been to the loo three times today." "Just shut up & keep guarding the door you prats."

The title was kind of accidental but it made me giggle so I ran with it. And no, I'm thinking Draco never did get that nap! Heh. Passing the blame seems like a very Draco thing to do, particularly when he's flustered about a situation. You know, I've been trying to convince human Draco to sleep in the shirt but maybe having cat!Draco sleep on it instead is more realistic. I know that if I place one piece of clothing on my bed that is the precise place my cats will lay down, every time! LOL!

yeah, that's a good question.....WHAT IS Harry up to? lol Please update again soon!!
Byaghro: Puppy!Harrybyaghro on June 4th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
I think that Harry is going to try a Slytherclaw approach to the situation. We'll have to see!! ^_^
fauxpersonae007fauxpersonae007 on June 3rd, 2008 06:24 pm (UTC)
What is Harry trying to do? I loved that Draco wanted an owl, even if he would've hexed it anyway. Enough sulking, they need to kiss and make up immediately.
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on June 4th, 2008 02:30 pm (UTC)
I keep trying to convince them to kiss and make up but they're being stubborn. LOL!! Glad you liked my pouty Draco! ^_^
h_hufflepuffh_hufflepuff on June 5th, 2008 08:22 am (UTC)
No, no, you have to make Draco sleep in the shirt! Or at least curled up around the shirt. Please? After all he needs a nap.
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on June 7th, 2008 08:16 am (UTC)
The image of kitty!Draco curled up asleep on Harry's shirt is just too adorable for words!! You're right Draco DOES need a nap and I know my cats always find (and sleep on) the one piece of clothing on the bed! LOL!

...what is Harry up to? *wonders*

*is woefully behind on reading*
Byaghro: Catboy!Dracobyaghro on June 7th, 2008 08:17 am (UTC)
Harry might have had a spark of Ravenclaw inspiration. LOL!

Don't feel bad, I'm woefully behind on reading as well!!!

Oh I LOVE how he is thinking it would be horrible for Harry to talk to him, but gets mad because he won't! So adorable!
