This is the little fic I wrote for this year's H/D Remix fest, remixing a lovely art series by [livejournal.com profile] kazuya22

Title: A Cherry When It's Blooming
Pairing: Harry/Draco preslash
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1950
Summary: Cherry blossoms tumble at a breath, but their subtle magic lingers. A tree at Hogwarts offers Draco mysterious solace through harsh times. This fic begins in May of Harry and Draco's fifth year at school, and ends in winter of Draco's seventh year.

Author's Note: When I saw [livejournal.com profile] kazuya22’s lovely Four Seasons series, the moonlit pink blossoms sent me on an odyssey of cherry-themed poetry. As always, many thanks to the gracious and patient mods and to my dear beta [livejournal.com profile] altri_uccelli, and thank you to the artist for such a beautiful piece to work with.

The title is taken from the American version of a traditional folksong (originally from Britain), known as The Riddle Song, which begins “I gave my love a cherry that had no stone.” The fic also quotes poems by A. E. Housman, Kobayashi Issa, Robert Herrick, Robert Graves, Stevie Smith, an anonymous Middle English poet, and Emily Dickinson, as well as the Bible, as detailed in endnotes. The quotation on wandlore is taken from J. K. Rowling’s Pottermore. This work was made for love, not money.
