Author's Notes: Thanks to fyernaice for the awesome prompt. I hope I met every request. I used Harry’s P.O.V. as much as I could; sometimes Draco’s voice was too loud to ignore it.
I’m grateful to amorette for betaing this monster and making my punctuation behave.
An explanation about the title. In Italian, a wish is called “desiderio”, and the word can mean “desire” as well; it comes from the Latin “de sidere”, literally meaning “from the star”. “Sidere” is the anagram of the English word “desire”. Some stars will play a role in the story. I found all these overlapping meanings too juicy not to use them.
