[Harry Potter] "Starts With a Spin"

I need to study for my Buddhism final, but you guys have to read this one.

Title:  "Starts With a Spin"
Author:  maxine_chan 
Fandom:  Harry Potter
Pairing:  Harry/Draco, Draco/Harry
Rating:  NC-17
Summary:  It started with the spin of a bottle, and now Harry and Draco have gotten themselves so far into their own game there's almost no way out again. Except to keep playing.

Beautiful.  That's the best way to describe this amazing story (which was the author's first in HP, slash, and smut, if you can believe that).  I'm a big fan of HP stories in which the Slytherins are not the House of Complete Evil, but instead normal teenage boys and girls who are often snobby pricks.  They're not really nice people, but they're not gosh-darned nasty evil either.  The author explores this with a very steady hand as well as exploring a burgeoning homosexual relationship that actually feels like a real first relationship, awkward and eager and reluctant and oh-so uncertain.  Plus it's funny and raunchy at parts before dove-tailing into a heart-wrenching story that kept me up for hours the night before a final.  And made me cry.  Dammit, people, just go read it!     

EDIT:  My brain is dead from finals.  Here's the link:
