I love Depeche Mode. Some of their songs are so moving. I don't believe I've listened to that one, though. If I have, I can't recall.

Like all your pieces, this was wonderful!

I absolutely loved how conflicted poor Theodore was. I can't imagine what it must be like to be in his position, but I could also imagine that it wouldn't be easy.

I think we've all been in that position where we like someone but we don't know what to do about it, so I think that Theodore is really rather easy to relate to and realistic in this piece. I also think that your characterization of Tracey was sweet, and your portrayal of Draco was stunningly accurate.

This was beautiful yet so tragic. We know that it isn't plausible for this ship to coexist within the realm of canon, but I was rooting for Theo. I do have a soft spot for him.

Your descriptions in this, too, were absolutely riveting. I loved them. I think my favorite was in the end where you compared Draco to wire. It was very original yet easy to picture within my mind's eye.

I can't help but feel bad for Theo still. He only got a kiss that lasted a moment, a kiss that was like ice. Though, I suppose that something is better than nothing.

Great job!


Author's Response: Linda! Good to hear from you again (:

Depeche Mode are an awesome band, yeah. Apart from Enjoy the Silence, I'd say Shake the Disease is my favourite. It's such a simple song with such a sparse texture, but it works really well.

I must say that it's a ship that attracted me for the utter impossibilities of it. Plus I do like the character of Theodore as he's got an interesting background - older, death eater father, dead mother and the ability to see Thestrals. Okay, I'm not going to lie, I actually chose this ship because it involved two of my favourites to write. Tracey's another one I like writing about (blank canvas minor character time!) so it was kind of ideal.

Oh, thank heavens vis-a-vis the Draco characterisation thing. I really struggle to write him well, so that's really good to know.

Strangely enough, I used that wire imagery/comparison thing in one of my pieces of english coursework. My teacher said it was a good bit of imagery, so I've kind of been angling to use it ever since. It seemed like an ample opportunity (:

Thank you very much for your review!
