Author's Response:

First off, thanks for reading and leaving a review.

Second, pull up a chair we may be here a while...  I'm not sure if you're asking why folks write HP slashfic (gay Harry) at all  or why Harry/Draco is a rather popular pair.  For the former I'll direct you here for a starter:  For the latter, I'll generalize and say that there are two very strong tropes in across slash fandoms.  The first is friends/collegues falling for each other - Harry/Ron, Paris/Kim (ST:Voy), Xena/Gabrielle.  These stories the couple tend to make that leap to the next level of their relationship.  The second is enemies/advesaries falling for each other- Harry/Draco, Paris/Chakotay (ST:Voy), Mulder/Krycek (Xfiles) - These stories are fueled with the tension of previous animosity, being on opposite sides, etc. and either overcoming that or sometimes you get hate!fic which can be quite exciting as well.  :)
