Hi there,

To be completely honest with you, I was going to read this story today anyway but had just forgotten. Thanks for requesting a review and reminding me that I wanted to read it!

But on with your review. This was a great one-shot. I love Draco Malfoy stories but sometimes, the way people characterize him just doesn't fit Draco Malfoy. I think you managed to capture the real essence of him quite well. The whole Draco Malfoy package was here along with the arrogance, stubbornness and the want to blame others for things that go wrong.

The grammar and punctuation was perfect! I really appreciate that and I know that many readers will. You have an amazing skill for imagery. It was fantastic. With all the description you put in, it seemed very subtle and not overpowering, but at the same time, I got a very clear and vivid image of what exactly was going on in my head. You have a great gift for that.

The details in this fic were great! I absolutely love details. They make me so happy and I am very pleased to have noticed much detail here. The humour in the story was subtle, but evident. I liked it. It wasn't die-hard laughter constantly, but it did make me chuckle every now and then. The ending especially made me laugh.

I think the ending was spectacular. It was very simple, but it explained a lot! I like how you ended the fic because it wasn't an ending that was expected. The entire fic I didn't know what to expect even though the details of the challenge were described. I liked being kept on the edge. I was very happy with the ending. I think that simple is the best way to go a lot of the time, and it was definitely the best way to go here.

This seems like a hard challenge to respond to, but you seem to have done it justice. I think you responded well to the challenge. Most of the action in here was very subtle, but it was noticeable which is what I like about it. The response to the challenge was quite subtle at all, but that's also what made the fic great.

Over all, great work! You're a very talented writer and that is quite obvious with this fic. The amount of detail you put into your fic also brings out the amount of effort you put in. I loved this story! Draco Malfoy is such a unique character who's hard to write but you definitely did him justice. I think he'd be proud of your interpretation of him because I definitely am.

Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you for responding to my request so quickly, and I'm so pleased that you took an interest in my story!

Thanks for your very long and detailed review. I get so happy when I see a reviewer take the time to really put a lot of thought into their reviews, as so often people leave very nice but short reviews that don't tell you much about what they're thinking. I'm so glad that the imagery, details, characterization, and technical details all worked well for you, and also that you felt I responded well to the challenge. I'm happy to see that my first attempt at humor worked for you as well, and I agree that it's a difficult but very interesting challenge. I was also quite pleased with my chosen ending and I'm happy to see you were as well. I really like Hagrid, and I wanted to offer him a small measure of justice here.

I'm so glad to see that I impressed a Draco fan; I'm one myself, so that means a lot to me. I'll definitely be sure to re-request next time I do something Draco-centric. Thank you so very much for stopping by, and I'm glad that you appreciate my work! :)
