Review:Alopex says:
I'm seriously starting to repeat myself (maybe starting isn't the right word :P ) in reviewing all these entries. But there's something I've got to say about your entry. First off, all the entries have similarities, obviously, since everyone is working with the same prompts. There's one part of my brain that, after reading a few in a row, is saying, "These stories all seem the same." Then there's the other part of my brain that is saying, "Wow, what a different take on the task! I haven't read that yet!"

So that's what my brain is saying right now regarding your story. I've read a few where Cho was in the future, but none that focused on her life with her Muggle husband this way. It was fun to read about him! He'd be a fun character to encounter in a longer story, I think.

I just realized it, but I think one reason your story suddenly stood out to me as different is that there wasn't some sort of dragon battle or symbolic dragon in it. Which is fine. It was a very enjoyable story (I enjoyed Michael more than a dragon anyway), and it's sort of refreshed me to keep pressing on with the rest!

Author's Response: I totally understand that everything can tend to run together in your mind when you're reading so many fics structured around the same elements (I felt it too, and I read only a handful). It's the differences in approach that I loved seeing, so I'm really happy this stuck out!

I'm actually kind of surprised that there aren't a lot/any fics involving Cho and the Muggle JKR said she married, but it is, I suppose, an obscure path to venture down when there are dragons and such to incorporate too (... which is why I didn't have a dragon lol). Michael is a fun character, but I feel like Cho sees him sometimes in an immature light; he isn't childish or whatever on his own, but she sees little behaviors and categorizes him as such. Which could be interesting to explore in a longer fic, definitely, but to be honest, that's not something that interests me right now.

Anyway, so glad to see your review! I'm glad you enjoyed it, dragon-less though it was.
