I wanted to read this story for a long time, because Pansy is such an interesting fanfiction character. I mean, in the books, she wasn't much, but it was from a perspective of very different character and I think she can be made very, very interesting. This first chapter shows that. I really like that you didn't overlook her negative traits and didn't make her look like a brainless twat as well. That's two things that are done wrong, I think. She's either portrayed as completely stupid or as thoroughly and absolutely misunderstood. I think she's ruthless and a Slytherin through and through, which she had demonstrated in that part of DH. But then we see more of her and I'm really intrigued. She has a brain and she has a world and her beliefs that are twisted, but one feels it's not entirely her fault because she had simply been brought up that way. I really want to learn who she truly is, because there's more to everyone.

She just doesn't know any better and I kind of want to reach out and shake her a little bit to wake up. She's such a child, but I understand that she has resigned to believe the Dark Lord is unstoppable and that's the problem with her.

The descriptions with this were very nice. I liked the Hogsmeade and how deserted and sad it looked. I also felt so empty when Pansy went home, empty and sad for her that she just walked away from a moment when history was made.

I'll be sure to read more of this. This first chapter was great. :) You have very captivating writing.

Author's Response: You've wanted to read this story for a long time? That's something I haven't really heard before but I'm very, very happy! I'm so glad that you've gotten around to reading and reviewing it!

I definitely agree that Pansy is an interesting fanfiction character. I love the minor characters because there's so much more room to play with their lives without straying away from canon.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed my characterization of Pansy. As I was writing this chapter it didn't even occur to me to write her as brainless (though I am careful not to write her as overly smart) because, just like you said, she's a Slytherin and she wouldn't have gotten into Slytherin based solely on her blood status.

I look forward to reading your future reviews! I really enjoyed reading this review so thank you, thank you, thank you!
