Heya! You review 'Decimated Dreams' for me, and now I am returning the favour. I didn't actually read this story, I'm only reviewing it here because I thought you wouldn't see it if the story had been written so long ago.
I read your wonderful one shot, 'Malfoy Lullaby.' It was perfectly written; beautiful. I loved the way you conveyed the character's pure-blood emotions. Lol. Does that make any sense? *Laughs to self and shakes head* Draco was so sweet, arrogantly so of course, the way he would respnd to his mother, and the interaction between them was great. Everyone was completely in character, which for some stupid reason, I really struggle with sometimes. Anyway. lol- That's not for here!!
The really posh way that Narcissa told Lucius about Draco was magical. 'I am with child.' Yes, you can't really imagine her saying- 'I'm going to have a baby.' I think the reason why is because it sounds rather common, in a way. lol. Dobby's servantly attitudes were excellent, and your description was so perfect. I'm in a real mood for reviewing today, so I'll just find a quote to suit, or, hee he- try to remember one? I keep forgetting, I'm reviewing on a different story. Oh, and I apologise again for that, but I hope it's worth me doing it!! Everyone likes big reviews! (Well not everyone, but a large majority, anyway.)
The brilliant thing about the one-shot was the way you were able to create so many pictures in my mind's eye of what the scene at the Malfoy manor looked like.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! It's nice to know how you made sure I would see it. (Though I've been such a reviewmonger I probably would have seen it if you'd left it on the moon. XD)
It does make sense, and I'm really glad I was able to make them seem pureblooded. And Draco! I loved writing little Draco. Struggling with keeping everyon in character is a challenge that everyone has to wrestle with, so don't think it's stupid that you do. There are some characters that I will probably never write (*coughLunacough*) because I'm scared to death to make them OOC.
I'm glad you picked up on the wording, such as Narcissa's line when she tells Lucius she's pregnant. I contemplated over everyone's lines quite a bit, and the way it turned out seemed just right. XD
Don't worry, a review is a review, no matter where it is! I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave a nice, juicy review for me. It made my day, I think, or at the very least, made me all smiley. I'm very glad that you enjoyed it. ♥
