For all my love of m/m slash, I don't read much femslash (if any, at all) so let's consider this my first foray into this ship. Also, Pansy/Daphne, such an interesting pairing you chose, and one I never would have thought of, but I think it works well.

I really like the pattern you have here, the alternating between past and present. I think it adds depth to your story and to the relationship between Daphne and Pansy that might have otherwise been missing. Their friendship is very sweet and I love that we sort of see Daphne's feelings developing as Pansy pursues Draco instead.

Your descriptions, as usual, are wonderful. I love how you contrast Daphne and Pansy with their blue and pink dresses, one all dark while the other is light. I guess what they say about opposites attract is true. ;)

I really loved when Daphne just kissed Pansy. It wasn't out of place or anything, it just fit right with that scene and then Pansy searching for her hand and feeling something deep in her bones, a heat ignited by Daphne's kiss - loved that.

There's a lot of parallels between the jumps in time too, with the acid pops and the chocolate frogs, I noticed. I really liked that as well.

This was such a wonderful story and I'm glad my first femslash fic was yours - I knew you wouldn't let me down. Nicely done! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for stopping over to read this :)

I'm not big into slash, obviously, so I'd love to chat with you sometime about the distinction that predominantly slash writers like you make between femmeslash and male/male slash. I think it's an interesting idea, and I'm a bit curious about it.

I think I already mentioned that Pansy/Daphne came largely from A Tale of Two Princes. I sort of imagined them being left behind when Paige and Draco were off having their little love story, and I thought it would be neat to explore that dynamic between them. It's great that the time jumps worked well for you and made sense, and that you liked all my details. I hope it came across as realistic -- I obviously know very little about same-sex relationships, but the impression I get is that it's not uncommon for one person to feel an attraction to another while that second person is out pursuing hetero-normative romance.

Ooh, good! I struggled a little with the kiss. I didn't want to make it this big, complex thing, because I felt like that wouldn't fit, so I kind of settled for 'out of the blue' instead, like it's just background noise along with everything else instead of being this climactic "moment". It's great that the imagery helped there.

You're super sweet. Thank you again, Missy!
