And I'm here again! *waves* :)
What a epicly fast paced chapter! I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time, just waiting to see what would happen next! Man, this story is engrossing - I'm really in love with it :P
I love your descriptions. They are so vivid, and I feel as though I'm there with Draco, seeing exactly what's going on. And not only that, but it's so consistent! No matter what scene, I still feel as though I'm there. It's honestly so flawless, and smooth, I cannot fault it :)
There was so much mystery in this chapter! The numbers, the letters, the clean photograph...wow! You've included so much, and yet the pace was absolutely perfect! I still think you have done Draco justice, and I really loved reading him think. He seems almost "Bond-like", with his suave ways and just general way of behaving in testing circumstances.
The ending! WOW! That was...well, it was just sudden! And it was quite smart, too, having it hidden like Diagon Alley. My my my, that was a very interesting way for Draco to find the body...shoelaces, very original! It was brilliant! I wonder what the actual operation is? You've got me hooked, Ciara!!! :D
Fantastic read, hun, this is quite an incredible story!!!
ps: OPERATION: GREEN WITH ENVY!
Author's Response: YAY
What I love about this genre is the smoothness of the characters and the dialogue. I am trying really hard to replicate it, so I'm glad it feels that way to you. But every main character in film noir has that snappiness, that very unruffled persona that I think works really well for this kind of mystery fic. Especially for characters like Draco and Pansy in this fic, who are really not nice people, but you can't help but be attracted to their characters because they are just so smooth.
I really feel like Draco in this chapter fits well with the character he's playing, because he is the kind of person who, even if he is dealing with crazy things, would have all that turmoil bottled up so well that even he can't feel it.
Thank you again love! I am so so excited to have someone reading this fic.
