(If Memory Serves)

This was my first foray into writing these two, and the experience was exciting and noteworthy in a million ways. Thinking about who Draco would be without his memories and how Harry would react was a thought-provoking, intense way to get started and whoa, was it a great way to explore the two of them, individually and together. There were some moments when I thought this fic might kill me, and I’m beyond grateful for all the support and commiseration that happened during the writing process and for all of the comments and kudos that have come since. I really can't tell y'all how much each one has meant.

Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] capitu for such a rich, interesting, wonderful prompt and a rec that made my heart sing, to [livejournal.com profile] kedavranox for putting together an awesome fest and especially for being so incredibly patient with my first timer's nerves, and to [livejournal.com profile] disapparater, my beta, brit-picker, and fic writing doula, for incredibly thoughtful, thorough comments and a level of speed and support that went way above and beyond.
