Hello! Dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap here with your review request! I was actually going to read this before you requested your review because I'm doing the challenge as well and I can assure you I did not write anything as clever!

I LOVED the detail. From the first sentence you had me hooked with just the mere mention of the tear of his curtain. I thought the ending was pure genius. I hadn't expected Hagrid to pay off the first years and all for Buckbeak? That melted my heart a bit. It was great how the story progressed as well, from the morning there were small whisperings, a mention from one first year 'the amazing bouncing ferret' and then it sort of started to double as the day progressed which I thought was good.

I like that you didn't make the story too 'laugh out loud' funny. Or maybe I mean extreme? It stuck well to the character of Draco which made the story believable. I chuckled at a few parts though! I really did.

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I glad you would have taken an interest in the piece even without a request! :)

So glad you liked the detail! I tried :) I really wanted to convey the horror Draco felt at reliving the events of the previous day, and his utter bafflement at having experienced something other than a perfect day. I'm so glad you liked the ending as well; I thought it was a bit clever, and don't Hagrid and Buckbeak deserve a little bit of justice? I'm glad the progression worked for you as well.

Thank you so much for saying that! It means a lot. A few people have been disappointed that it didn't make them laugh out loud, but I'm not sure that I wrote it with that purpose. Still, I'm happy that it got a chuckle or two from you :) I'm also pleased that I made Draco believable; I usually turn him into more of a romantic hero, and I wanted to keep him canon for this one.

Thanks again for your fabulous review! :)
