You could not even imagine the smile on my face when I saw that this had been updated :D YAY! Ahem. Hello Ciara *huggles* :D
Wow. This chapter was incredible! Ah, this story is seriously getting even more addicting with each chapter ♥
First off, this line: "all of the Seeking skills he never got the credit for" was pure awesomeness. It actually made me laugh, and I liked having something a bit lighter. It balances out with the darkness and drama. :)
I really, really liked it when he gave his wand to Rose. I'm never one to think of Draco as chivalrous, but for your characterisation of him, it works really well!
Oh, so much action in this chapter! I actually was sitting on the edge of my seat by the time I'd finished reading. How you have managed to make the fight scenes flow so smoothly is amazing. Most of the time when I read fight scenes, I'm like "what just happened?" "who is that person?", but you manage to keep everything perfectly clear!
Nott? I would never have guessed! I love the canon character-ness of this, hehe XD You've certainly given him a life of his own away from J. K. R., and you've captured the cool Slytherin-ness of him, too. I really liked how you emphasised the fact that he was of new blood. It really made everything fall into place! :D
WHAT? THEY HAVE PANSY??? *is shocked and worried* You're evil, Ciara. Eeevil. But it does show that the Dynasty are smart in a scary way. The bracelet was such an interesting way for them to show him that they had her hostage. It was so chilling!
Ohh, I so cannot wait till the next chapter. I have no clue where this is going to go, so I'm going to be stalking :P Update, update, update!!! Hehe brilliant work, love. :)
Author's Response: Eighteen hugs for you. Eighteen of them. You are so amazing, this whole review response would just be random squeeing of you if I didn't reign it in.
Ahaha, well, honestly, Draco was obviously a good Seeker because he always got within six inches of the thing before Harry had some kind of miraculous accident and caught it. I can imagine him still being a bit resentful of that.
Draco in that moment was being less chivalrous and more acting on instinct. He had spent so long trying to find her and keep her alive, it was natural that the first thing he did was just toss it to her without really thinking if that was a good idea or not. I imagine him as getting really fixated on things. We know he as a character is very determined and dedicated once he sets his mind to something, so once he had this task of getting her back to her parents, he wasn't goling to just leave her to fend for herself.
I am having a lot of fun revealing random canon charries to really stop now, so it will continue.
THEY TOTALLY HAVE PANSY. I know. I know. It's so devious and evil of me. Wait till you see the ending. No, I can't give it away... but I want you to read it. You'll die.
I will be updating in just a few days! The next chapter is important but not as actiony, and then things get really intense.
