I'm sorry that I haven't read this in a while and didn't immediately attack it the moment it was updated. Annoyingly, I've been really busy and started uploading my own stories and blah, blah, blah. It takes alot of my time, being this amazing! All kidding aside though, I really enjoyed this chapter. It felt like Pansy was making a bit more of herself known, in her own way, by interacting with her co-workers. Though she's still thinking too much and being adorably analytical when she doesn't need to be, its actually sort of cute. I don't know why, but there it is. Anyway, I do like that you have some sort of dynamics in the Archives, especially after she made that bad mistake with Terrence. The fact that, while she was looking out for herself but did send an apology spoke volumes I think and I was glad that she did it. For a moment I thought that she wouldn't, with her old pride prickling up but she surprised me. Pansy's character seems to be changing quite a bit but I am a bit sad, especially by one of the lines in the beginning. To save her family's reputation, she's showing no love for her Death Eater father and I can tell that her relationship with her mother is very strained. I'm not sure how you're going to resolve this but I hope it gets better for her, I can sense how alone she feels. And, let's talk about that prat Cyril for a moment! He's starting to really get on my nerves and I hope that you expand a bit on his hatred for Pansy and purebloods. I want to know what his issue is and I want, in my violent little mind, for Pansy to chew him out but I don't think she'd do that. :p
Now! How about that rude Auror? I wish you had said who it was so I could have gotten a bit more information to see how they knew one another. But regardless, it was a tense few sentences and paragraphs because he was obviously trying to be as politely-mean as possible. It took alot for Pansy I think, to do her job, reign in her pride and keep her temper in check. I don't blame her for slamming the door though, she could have ranted and screamed too but that sound was rather satisfying I'm sure. Phew!
Now, excellent work as always! No grammar things, the pacing was amazing and I really love the characters that you've got going. I'm hoping for a bit more and I hope Pansy continues to grow! Now, I'll be back to the next chapter soon, I promise!
Author's Response: And now it is I who must say sorry that's it's taken me so long to respond to this... And I truly am sorry! From this, I can definitely say that I understand being busy, so there's no worries! I just wanted to let you know that there were more chapters for you to read, if you wanted.
I'm so glad that you enjoyed this chapter! Yes, poor Pansy does have a rather unique way of viewing the people around her... And I don't think that it's going to disappear any time soon, so it's good that you like it!
Pansy did experience a rather large change when she sent the apology letter- ah... the things she does for the sake of her family- and the things that she will do in the future... :) I'm so pleased that you think that Pansy's character is changing (though hopefully you don't think it's in a bad or unrealistic manner). This story has actually covered years, so it makes sense that she's changed.
Ah, yes- the struggles with her family. I won't say much on this topic except that I do have something very particular planned in the future...
I'm not sure if I will expand on Cyril's character at the moment (though I certainly will if I can fit it in!). At the moment, though, I will say that Cyril was on the side of the Light during the war, if that clarifies it any for you.
I look forward to seeing your reviews in the future and I promise that I will try my hardest to respond to them sooner!
