Hello, dear! I am here to review your latest and greatest.

This story is fantastic! You create so much atmosphere. It was so easy for me to picture every moment of this heart-breaking encounter. While the story was sad in the end, it was also invigorating in a way. Even though Astoria arguably goes about things in a cruel way, she's doing what she must.

In the beginning, I had the feeling that she was merely trying to make Draco jealous. That she simply wished to extort some favor or promise from him. Her intent quickly grows darker as she continues to repeat her mantra: "This ends tonight." she pushes his buttons. She toys with his emotions. She shamelessly uses the muggles around them to fan his fury. She's such a Slytherin!

But throughout the piece, she can't escape the reality that she loves him. His pain hurts her so deeply. Several times she almost cracks as she sees the sadness in his eyes. It was really touching and it kept me on the edge of my seat!

When she delivers the final blow to their relationship, it was a brilliant twist. You don't say what happened to Daphne and that's fine; you imply just enough. It's the one ghost that Astoria could never possibly compete with, because she loves and misses her sister too much. It was such a cruel blow, delivered at the perfect time and with a deft touch. It's the final nail in the miserable coffin of their relationship.

This story had it all: suspense, heartbreak and loads of atmosphere. I loved the way you wrote it. You're a great storyteller, you know that?

Author's Response: Are you trying to make up for all the times you've made me cry in CoB, by making me cry happy tears? You are amazingly wonderful, and I'm so happy you liked this. You know how scared I was getting..

You're very right about Astoria. She is trying so hard to be cruel, to get Draco to stay angry so that they can end this through that rage, and not through pain. What she didn't bet on, is how strong her emotions would fight against it. What a heart breaking situation, isn't it? How do you love something that's taking away everything, but how do you hate the memory of something you love? Poor girl.

Slytherin through and through... She's quite the girl, isn't she? ;)

I am so happy you picked up on the times she almost cracked. It took everything for her to reel back her own emotions and work on playing with his, ahh! You observant thing, you.

I am so happy you liked it. It was so such a fun/exhausting thing to write. Getting into Astoria's head was wonderful, and I can't say I'm not looking forward to doing it again. Lily gets bit jealous though... these women. ;)!

Thanks again, darling!!! :):):)!!!
