Review:Alopex says:
Wow, this is a lot different from your Snape piece. I personally think it's stronger writing. I really liked your opening line; I knew what it was referencing immediately! (As most HP fans should, lol.) It amused me. It took me a bit longer to figure out who the narrator was (I didn't figure it out; you told us), even though I figured out pretty quickly it wasn't Draco.

I was impressed by the scene at the end, when Pansy follows Blaise to the dormitory, and Blaise is upset and thinks about telling her to bugger off, but in the end, he can't. All the one-true-love stuff aside, that's a really human thing to do. How many of us haven't been in a similar position before? It was sort of sad--maybe disappointing is a better word--to read, but it felt real.

Author's Response: Ooh, may have to rework this a little, as it's supposed to be an obviously 'mystery' first person POV, which doesn't seem to have come across as deliberate! It's also not supposed to be too clear that it isn't Draco, but then again, as I was working hard to ensure Blaise didn't seem like a Draco clone, this may be a good thing. Hmm, well you've definitely got me thinking - if only I hadn't already made a outstanding review nomination!

Anyways, glad you liked the final scene - disappointing and real was kinda what I was going for, so yay! I love mean girls and fool-for-love guys, because it just makes me want to give the guy a hug, and thus writing it was excessively fun. Also, when trying to stay in canon and yet pair Blaise and Pansy, how else does one do it?

Thanks for the thought provoking reviews!
