First review! :D

Wow, you decided to tackle Draco and Luna as characters! I was not expecting that. I really respect your portrayal of Draco here. In fanfiction, I think he's usually treated too fangirlishly, but in this story, it seems like he's lining up with the way he behaved in refusing to confirm that the Snatchers had brought Harry, Ron, and Hermione to Malfoy Manor.

I never did really like Draco that much, although I did come to feel sorry for him by the end of the series. Poor kid. I can't imagine what it must have been like having Voldemort living in his house. No wonder he feels sick sometimes.

Anyway, I was touched that he lit the candle.

Author's Response: Yep, you got here first! And I'm still reeling from three reviews from you tonight. Grinning like Dobby in a room full of miss-matched socks!

I'll be the first to admit - writing Draco is not something I've ever wanted to do. Maybe that's why it took me a year to get this last chapter up. I knew it had to be about him, and I just couldn't write him! I tried really hard not to make him seem like a good guy, or a really nice guy, but I also didn't want him to be outright evil either. I'm glad you approved of the balance I tried to strike.

And I agree. I've never like Draco. In the books he was a spineless jerk (as he was supposed to be) and in fanfiction he's become either a missunderstood angel or more evil than Voldemort himself. But, I agree, I did feel sorry for him by the end. He'd gotten in over his head and he knew it, but he was never brave enough to do anything about it.

And you're right. Voldemort as a houseguest would be stinky.

Glad you liked the ending! Thanks so much for these wonderful reviews! It was so much fun to hear from you again.

Good luck at school tomorrow!
