Oh. My. God.

How could I have not read this earlier? And be missing out from such a gem?! Honestly I feel like I've just struck gold or something...

Continuing with stroking your ego - this is genius. Pure genius. I loved your Draco/Ginny fic, so I figured I'd try out this one. Boy, am I glad I did.

This is an AMAZING plot. It's clear and well defined, so it's not pointless, and there's enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested. Draco's characterization is amusing, real, and the best I've ever seen. Ever.

I normally don't like OC-centric stories, since half of them turn out to be Mary Sues or have ridiculously annoying names, but I honestly love Jade. She's a bit Mary Sue-ish, due to her tragic past/ relation to a teacher/unique powers/endearing temper/friends with both the trio and draco... but she works for me. I actually like her and don't find her obnoxiously perfect like I've read in other stories. Jade comes across as real, despite some unrealistic aspects about her, and that just proves some serious writing talent.

And this is your first fic?! UNBELIEVABLE. Mine was a hideous attempt at L/J that was so full of cliches that I had to delete it in disgust. CLEARLY, you are the better writer.

I hope this review has motivated you to get started on the next chapter! I can't wait for it... but even if it takes months, I'll still read :D

PS. You have one of Kay's earlier banners. I think, at least, because of its quality in comparison to her current work. I just wanted to touch on that since I find it kind of odd and really lends to your story's originality (it's vintage :P ahaha.)

Author's Response: Wow, you can stroke my ego anytime you want! Seriously, thank you so much for your amazing review! I, too, am really glad you decided to read this fic. This one is kind of my baby - it was my first fic and clearly my longest. You have no idea how good it is to hear that you think Draco's characterization is right. I know how I imagine him to be and I'm relieved that's how he is for you, too. I realize Jade seems a bit Mary Sue-ish, but I work really hard to keep personality real and the reactions of those around her realistic. I started writing this my freshman year (I'm a senior now) and it's been a much larger project that I ever dreamed. I'm very flattered and honored that you like it and you have definitely motivated me! And yeah, the banner is almost 4 years old! Actually, by the end of the story it probably won't fit the story as well (I had no idea where I was going with this when I started) but I guess it does add another "original" aspect!
