SECOND PRESENT - REVIEWS! WOOHOO! :D

Oh this was so interesting. A secret Pansy/Blaise love affair? :D
Blaise's narration was brilliant. I thought he seemed like a human, three-dimensional character. You conveyed his emotion really well and while he wasn't a perfect person, he was still easy to sympathize with.

I loved how you kept up the mystery and suprises in this piece- at the beginning I thought it might have been Draco, but then it turned out to be Blaise. And then all throughout the piece you think his love is entirely not returned, but there is that little twist at the end which keeps it exciting.

I also liked how Pansy wasn't suddenly a super-hot-babe, but he liked her because of how long he had known her, and how close they were.

I liked the introduction of Theo's character and how normal he seemed. It really added to the realism... plus I love minor characters. I've got a bit of a thing for them :P

I also enjoyed how you gave their relationship history as Blaise reflected on the past and the way you described the life of a slytherin! Haha, I can't think of the word for it but it was... interesting (?) to hear more about something we never get to hear of in canon!

Your writing was brilliant, this was really hooking and full of emotion - plus you wrote their relationship as believable, which is the idea of the challenge you wrote this for so woohoo! :D

+ Grammar was really good :)
Really enjoyed this!

Author's Response: Wow - reviews like this might make me start liking my own writing (and certainly make me want to write more!)

I'm not usually a challenge person, but this one just appeared in my head as one big lump. Right from the start I knew I wanted the POV to be concealed, because when we think of PP we always think Draco, and it was fun to try and start off that way and then slowly make it more and more obvious that it was someone else. Not sure how well it worked, but it was certainly an enjoyable challenge trying!

Glad you liked the Slytherin relationships too - when trying to get into his head, it seemed natural to have him be friends with Theo rather than the other three, both to fit canon and my plot line!

As for the love story itself - Blaise/Pansy isn't canon at that time, and because I was going through a bit of a canon obsesssion at the time, I couldn't resist the concept that they could secretly be together. And I've never written a truly messed up relationship before - most my pairings are True Love Forever rubbish, and I wanted to try something more complex for once. So believable - pretty much the highest praise you could give!
