    Reading this felt like going on a trip around the world. I WANT TO SEE LAOCOON IN PERSON SOMEDAY (its my favorite sculpture even if the subject matter is way bleak). I'm so glad I read this story. It was romantic and immersive and inspiring.

    My favorite story of 2019. Here is a link to my original tags for this fic, because ao3 is trying to cage my enthusiasm, but i refuse to let them win: https://i.imgur.com/cN25S2L.png

    Summary

    Junior Auror Harry Potter doesn't mind working across the hall from Potioneer Draco Malfoy. Nope, not at all. Everything is absolutely, totally, one hundred percent fine except when Malfoy chats about high-maintenance, needy, adoring and adored Nicolas -- at which point Harry gets very distracted and maybe just a little teensy bit jealous, and sets his own hand on fire.

    So funny. Stellar characterization and exposition. Junior Auror Harry. Potioneer Draco. Might be the only Drarry fic to make sexy use of an emergency wash station. Does that clever thing where the "camera" pulls back that I really love but don't know the fic term for.

    I wrote such a lovely note and lost it bc I went to IMDB to find the name of the movie it reminded me of (Nightmare Alley - 1947). ✨Highly recommended.✨ Love carnival, vaudeville, sideshow culture and it's wonderful to find a Drarry fic that melds the worlds so masterfully. A few themes that could use a tag (but weren't for the purpose of the story which is understandable). They can be avoided if readers follow the foreshadowing -- putting that here as a reminder to myself without spoiling for others.
