:O

I repeat - :O

I am in awe. (And really late, for which you will have my guts for garters, but now that I have gotten around to reading it, I doubt I will stop!) Oh, and I think I am going to nominate this for the Story Seekers if it hasn't already been on/nominated, because this is... alluring. Different. Something else entirely. And yet, it's so close to everything that hides beneath all fanfictions that I already feel like I know it well, but yet I so obviously don't.

Before I begin, I have to say that this is one of the very few stories (I believe there are two others) where the characters and the story do not sound like myself in my head, which is quite a good thing, as the other two stories where the imagery and the characterization is so good that everyone sets themselves apart from what I normally read and write happen to be my two favorite stories on the archives. (If you're wondering, they sound like a mix of Guy Noir from A Prairie Home Companion and someone who did one of my favorite acts on This American Life. And yes, I am an NPR addict! *hides*)

To add to that, I love how this story is told. In your concerns way back when (*hides again*) you mentioned that you weren't sure about how this was written, but I absolutely adore how intriguing it is with it's information released just so the picture changes with every word, every letter. I also don't have any real CC quote yet, but I do intend to go as far as time will permit me to today (which is a first for requests, as I am usually far too lazy to go farther than requested), so maybe I will sometime later. :)

The darkness and the murky shadows in which the morals and descisons lie are really something else. They bring to question what exactly is right and how something can be wrong, but only to someone who has already done something wrong. It really reminds me of The Tourist, although this is pulled together with much more presicion and mystery than said movie. It's not often you get something like this that can bring such ideas to the table and then show them with the eloquence I've read in the first 3,500 words. Stunning.

Spelling and Grammar: Pristine. I think there was a missing comma, but that was one of those gray area missing commas where it was just fine without it.

Pacing and Flow: Marvelous. I couldn't think of a better way to have it go so seamlessly, especially with all of the changing scenes and moving about that Draco does.

Overall Opinion: This can only be expressed via emoticon - :O (And yes, that is a good shock! :D)

I can't wait for Chapter 2,
