Title: Hey, Potter
Prompt: # 173
Summary: Harry returns to Hogwarts for his 8th year, determined not to let Malfoy get to him. But when the snarky teasing starts up again, Harry finds that returning the jibes with compliments has a far more interesting outcome.

Author's Notes: I tried to follow the prompt as closely as possible, but took a slightly different route with Harry's behavior towards Malfoy, but hopefully the desired result was the same! A special thanks to fyernaice for providing the prompt and beta Amalin who offered tireless insight, assistance and edits while I bombarded her during her birthday week. She is amazing.
