Summary: In the summer before Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts, something relatively inconsequential causes him to wonder if he'd been barking up the wrong tree the whole time, as far as girls went. As the year progresses – amongst activities geared towards house unity, nefarious Slytherin plots, and dealing with the loss of loved ones – Harry begins to wonder if perhaps giving people a chance isn't so scary, after all. What does all that have to do with Draco Malfoy? Why, everything, of course.

Note: This story stands alone, though it's also a companion piece to my A Gryffindor and A Slytherin, which is from Draco's point of view. The title is a play on two lines from a Sorting Hat song.
