Review:CambAngst says:
I'm back. Finally! The last two weeks have totally gotten away from me. But better tardy than absent...

It's an interesting sort of progress to see darling Pansy begin to deal with some of the small vexations and inconveniences that life throws her way -- the icy snow, the cold weather, the need to use the visitor's entrance to the Ministry -- in a manner that's actually appropriate for a real human being. Granted, they still frustrate her on the inside, but she's learned to control it, which seems like major progress for her.

I have to wonder what you have in mind for poor, old Richards. You've dwelled on him just enough to pique my interest and make me hope that he has some interesting, future role to play in Pansy's life. I can't imagine what it might be, but I'm keeping him in mind.

Pansy is still so status-conscious. The need for official recognition, in the form of a permanent badge, seems very pressing to her. And her immediate need to compare her robes to Theresa's... certain things just never seem to go away with her.

Hmmnn... although I'm guessing that Theresa is not related to the Weasley's, it's an interesting possibility.

"Sorceror's Fancy" - Awesome! I can only imagine what sort of, um, articles that one contains.

Jonathan is another interesting addition to the little menagerie of the Archives. He's plainly been there for long enough that he follows his own routine and can't be bothered to adhere to anyone else's rules. Not that he has none, mind you. The fact that he vanished the spit from the floor seems to confirm that he has standards. He just refuses to be held to anyone else's.

I love her commitment to becoming part of the team and building a rapport with her coworkers. She knows what she needs to do, and I think it's going to oscillate between amusing and heart-warming to watch her do it.

A nice little chapter, overall. I couldn't find any issues with your writing. It all flowed nicely and I felt the plot continue to move forward. I see you've already posted the next chapter, yet another testament to how far behind I've fallen. But I think that will have to be tomorrow's project. Until next time!

Author's Response: I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond to your review(s). I really do appreciate them!

Yes, Pansy's learning to control her outward reactions, though her reasoning is slightly more extreme than most. She cares more than most people about her reputation and what others think of her and it shows in her every action in public.

That's an interesting way of putting her... I'd never thought about describing her as "status-conscious" before but it definitely fits! And yes, Theresa isn't related to the Weasleys (I think we would have heard of her long ago if she was).

I'm glad that you like Jonathon- he's an interesting character to write. He certainly does like to stir up the atmosphere in the Archives and Pansy doesn't quite understand how to handle him yet...

Pansy will encounter some uncomfortable situations where she won't know how to react... But she will continue! She won't give up, even though she will encounter difficulties along the way to forming those relationships (we certainly couldn't have her having an easy time, now could we?).

Thanks for taking the time to read and review- I really appreciate them!
