Review:RonsGirlFriday says:
I really loved the part where Malfoy tries to gain access to the desk - it fit so perfectly into the Potter-verse, a desk having a mind of its own. And Malfoy's frustration was so comical. "Open sesame!" I giggled at that, because I had such a ludicrous image in my mind of this snobbish, highbrow man saying, "Open sesame." And then, of course, what he says next is even funnier. A nice, slightly humanizing moment for him, even if it is just him being irritable, because even he has his moments of foolishness where he breaks his facade (albeit when nobody else is around).

What a mystery, with this rune and tulip business! Sounds dark and ominous and other excellent stuff that I'm sure will add greatly to the tension here. I have a really unpleasant feeling that you're going to sneak this Draco/Hermione romance-y business into the reader's consciousness slowly, and actually make me start wanting it to happen! You and your crafty writing ways. But I will resist it! -clings to R/Hr-


Looking forward to further updates!


Author's Response: I can't even remember where I got the idea for the desk, but it made me laugh to write it because I could see it happening - the straw that broke the camel's back in Draco's very bad day. It's an easy way to create humour in a Potterverse story - make the objects come alive and be stubborn to their owners.

At the same time, the desk symbolizes something darker in Draco's relationship with his wife. Even the desk is trained to not release its secrets to him.

Slow sneakiness is the only way I can think of making their romance plausible! Even I'm not sure of how it'll happen in the story because it's so hard to make them fit together - they're too incompatible, and it'll take a lot of whittling down to break them entirely.

It's really cruel to torture the characters like that. :P

Haha, thanks for the review and the compliment! Hopefully I can actually live up to those crafty ways. ;)
