Summary: Harry extends an olive branch a bit of catnip, will Draco accept?

Start at the beginning - Meow

Sequel to Here Kitty, Kitty

Without preamble Harry reached up and waved his hand over the top of Malfoy's head. Before the Slytherin could anticipate what he was up to, Harry's hand encountered a velvety cat ear. Instinctively, the Gryffindor scratched behind it.

Draco's reaction was instantaneous and apparently completely involuntary, his back arched and he tilted his head to allow Harry better access.

Harry, shocked at the sudden change in the blond, stopped scratching. Malfoy's eyes popped open and he scowled. For a second Harry wasn't sure if he was mad because Harry'd scratched his ear, or because he'd stopped.

"What do you think you're doing Potter?" the Slytherin snarled, stepping back and crossing his arms defensively.

"I wondered if you were still a catboy. Apparently so," the Gryffindor replied easily.

Malfoy glared at him. "What of it?"

The dark-haired boy tilted his head inquisitively. "Tell me, was Madame Pomfrey unable to get rid of the ears? Or did she fix them and you have them back because you've been practicing your Animagus form again?"

The Slytherin narrowed his eyes but refused to answer.

"Please," Harry said softly, "I promise I'm not asking out of spite or meanness. I truly want to know."


Harry fidgeted with his jumper, suddenly very aware of how close he was standing to Malfoy and what he was contemplating. "I.. um.. I might be able to help."

Next: Negotiation

Yuppers! Somehow I think Draco was annoyed that Harry stopped, then annoyed that he was annoyed. LOL! XD

no no no don't stop there...

So Draco likes to be scratched hmm, and Harry seems more than willing to comply
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 05:57 am (UTC)
Yes, Harry is more than happy to scratch Draco's ears for him! I know I would be! LOL! XD

Curious to see how Harry can help him.

Re: Lovely
Ooh, hey... I hadn't considered purring but now that you mention it... *ponders* I might be able to work that out. ^_^

Love the kitty icon by they way! So cute!

TORTURE! I'm dying from this cliffhanger!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:05 am (UTC)
I know! *hides* And the word count keeps getting smaller!! I gotta make my Muse give me more at a time. LOL!

I always thought catboy fics were weird. The are my new obsession thanks to you. This is so cute and funny. I want more please!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:08 am (UTC)
Woohoo!! I've inspired a new obsession! *dances*

I'm hoping to keep this on the side of cat-like TRAITS and not full fledged CATboy, so hopefully it won't be too weird or squicky!
malachic on April 27th, 2008 01:53 am (UTC)
Aww, Draco's so very cute in this!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:09 am (UTC)
Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it!

*squees* So kawaii!!! I bet I know exactly how Harry wants to 'help' ;)
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:10 am (UTC)
Bahahaha!!!!! Probably not in the way that you're thinking... at least at first - LOL!!! But thank you for all of the yummy, naughty mental pictures of other ways Harry could "help". ^_^
thrnbrookethrnbrooke on April 27th, 2008 02:41 am (UTC)
Oh too wonderful! I sooo can't wait for more!!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:10 am (UTC)
Yay! Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it!
Alaanaalaana_fair on April 27th, 2008 02:59 am (UTC)
Ah, this an adorable little series! I can't wait to see what Harry has planned. :-)
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:12 am (UTC)
WOO! Thank you!! It's odd to watch plot bunnies multiply into small drabbles like this! I'm used to the, "Wouldn't it be funny if.." ideas that turn into 500+ page, never-ending WIPs! This has been an experience!
lijahlover: Practice H/Dlijahlover on April 27th, 2008 04:40 am (UTC)
Please have Harry help Draco XD
Byaghrobyaghro on April 27th, 2008 06:13 am (UTC)
But of course! It wouldn't be H/D without a little "helping hand" right? LOL! Although probably not like that... at least in this series! Heh!
Jaeenchanted_jae on April 27th, 2008 07:17 am (UTC)
*squeals in silly glee* Gah, the thought of Harry scratching behind Draco's ear and Draco reacting to it leaves me all a'flutter!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 28th, 2008 05:43 am (UTC)
*grin* Having cats like I do, I know you know the "I can't believe you're scratching my... oh, yes, right there!" reaction they have to ear scratches! LOL!
pleiadesst4r_pl314d3s on April 27th, 2008 07:39 am (UTC)

Byaghrobyaghro on April 28th, 2008 05:45 am (UTC)
