I got bored of doing my homework so I started thinking about what else I can do and then my brain had a lightbulb idea to pop-in down here and leave a review.
First we must cheer because Dan has a new story! YAY! Dan's new story is about Draco so more cheers! YAY! YAY! I did notice the fact that this is going to be a short story, but I'm really hoping that it wont be *that* short. (Don't give me the figures!)
That dormitory thing scene with Pansy was really weird and I just scrolled away from that. So I missed out that bit, I'm sure I missed out on a lot of interesting information, but I'm too young for those things! (I know I study about it at school, but this is a valid excuse no matter what you think.) :P
I did read the bit about Snape coming in the room though, that was funny. To me it was, anyway. I feel very weird today, so most things are funny to me.
I never liked Hogwarts era fanfiction, but mainly because the authors try to 'alter' the storyline half of the time and that just annoys me a lot. So when I realised that this was a Hogwarts-era fic, I was praying to whoever is up there that you won't alter the plot and thank Merlin you didn't. I shouldn't have doubted you. *lesson learnt*
I really like the way you portrayed Draco here, full of arrogance and such an annoying character. How did I ever love him? I have no idea. I felt really sorry for him when Snape told him that Lucius failed; he already had his 'future' plans laid out and then everything just came crashing down on him. But it was a bit amusing too.
I have no idea what the heck's going to happen in chapter two, but probably something I'll love (unless Draco dies in it, then I'll hate you forever!) (That's just a joke).
I know this review is weird, but that's because I first watched 10 minutes of afro circus and fun (with Rebbeca Black) before reviewing your story. You should try and watch one of them, or maybe both. I challenge you! Don't do it before reviewing a story though. It has terrible outcomes, this review is a living example. (Not that reviews live or anything...that...that was personification!)
I'll stop freaking you out,
(I lied, I'm still not done freaking you out.)
PS: Despite the weirdness of the review and the fact that I forgot to mention what I'm about to say, here's a 'PPS' note for you.
PPS: I enjoyed this chapter lots! I really can't wait what you'll come up with it. :D
Okay. I'm done for reals now. (Who says 'reals' anyway?) (Besides me, obviously.) (Do you Dan?)
Author's Response: Hey, Izzy! I'm glad I was able to spare you from the terrible fate of doing homework! ;) I'm pretty sure there was a time when I used to say "for reals", it's just been a while.
It seems like you picked up on the only thing of substance that came up during Draco and Pansy's, um, "encounter". Basically, he's so high on himself that he believes he can have anything he wants, no matter the morality or the consequences. That's why he's contemplating his "future" with Pansy, even though it's obvious that he thinks she's beneath him.
I am doing my very best not to alter the canon storyline in any way that matters. My goal is to fill in what I think were a very interesting series of events that were only alluded to in the books. By the end of DH, I thought it was pretty obvious that Voldemort's induction of Draco into the Death Eaters and the assignment to kill Dumbledore were not a reward. They were a punishment for Lucius's failure in the Department of Mysteries. So I tried to imagine how that all played out.
I, um, don't think I could watch anything by Rebecca Black without becoming physically ill. She is the personification of the terrible things that can result from "instant Internet celebrity."
Well, I'm very glad that you enjoyed the chapter. I promise that future chapters won't have any awkward love scenes. ;) Thanks for reading and reviewing!
