At request for review, this is what I have to say:
First off, I'd like to say that I love the way you wrote the story. The words flowed nicely, making it easy to read. It's a very good piece of literary work and I must applaud you for that. Second off, I like the way you portrayed Draco's character. Yes, you managed to capture that iconic egotistical and bitter side of him, but you also managed to give him some insecurities making Draco a believable character, especially in a situation like this. There were actually moments where I felt sorry for him. To be in a situation like that would be humiliating, even if he deserves it.
As for the humor aspect of it, there were a few witty moments that did make me chuckle. It was a pleasant read and it lightened my mood, but I believe that maybe you can maybe add a wittier or more quirky tone to the dialogue and text to really make it a laughable fic. I also believe that at the part where Seamus was talking about the incident and Malfoy intervened, he would've said something more nasty or biting to the Gryffindor. However, I did laugh really hard at the end. Brilliant idea to have Hagrid paying off all of those first years. It does seem like something he'd do Overall, I think that your first attempt at a humor fic is rather well done. The strengths of this fic are the how you kept the characters mentioned in canon, the smooth flow of the writing, and your ability to characterize Malfoy. Again, I loved the ending alot. If you write another humor fic, you should try and integrate more scenes or dialogue similar to this.

Author's Response: Hello there! Thank you for responding so quickly with such a thoughtful and detailed review :)

I'm glad you liked the flow of the story, and I'm extra happy to see that you liked my characterization of Draco. I usually tend to soften him up too much in my fics, seeing as he usually appears as a romantic figure in my work, so I'm pleased to see that I successfully balanced his canon Malfoy side with a little bit of insecurity.

Thanks also for your comments on the humor. I'm glad you found it funny, as that was my goal, and I will work on including more funny moments in future humor stories. I'm glad you liked the ending as well; I thought it would be brilliant to have Hagrid finally get some revenge for the stuff Draco and his father put Hagrid and Buckbeak through back in third year.

I appreciate your little summary at the end of the review; it really helps bring the point home. I'm happy to see that I can write humor, since I usually stick to angst. But hey, that's what challenges are all about, right? :)

Thank you again! I truly appreciate your review.
