I've been meaning to get back to this story for a while now and i'm glad i finally have the chance too! This is another really excellent chapter!

It's so cleverly done and I love how she has this calm conviction that Voldemort will win. I noticed that in the first chapter as well and i like how it has continued on here. It's something she must have grown up with as a pureblood heiress. It makes it really interesting though when she realizes that everything she's ever known has changed and will continue changing. You can start to see the cracks start to happen, wandering around in her nightgown for one and her not frantic but her attempts to get out of her home. You can almost feel the panic start to build up inside her as she realizes that she's in a prison that was once a home. This feeling continues till she has the inner desire to throw a huge fit. The emotions you played with were really well done simply because a lot of them were below the surface in your characters.

I love how you've kept her mostly in control of herself. (except for maybe snapping at her mother, or walking around in her nightgown). It goes further the characterize her than a massive breakdown on her part. It just seems like now there is a layer that has been torn off her but she's still determined to be a lady and a pureblood. She hasn't lost everything she was before in a day which i really appreciate and i find too many authors try and do with post war fics.

I also liked the repetition of the house that was now a prison. It just seemed to bring to the front this girls fear and her desperation to be in control. She isn't someone used to being that she can't do something and must stay in one place. It really is a nice way to bring out her feelings and her emotions in a time like this. It doesn't make me relate to her but it makes me feel a bit sorry and sad for her because she's spent her whole life learning not to show her emotions and to be this perfect lady that the only thing that makes her real or human is this desperate feeling that she's caged. Trapped in the one place that should have been safe.

This makes me really curious to know how this is going to shape Pansy from here on out. Really great job with this!

Author's Response: I'm glad that you've returned (however briefly) to this story! I really enjoyed reading your review!

I don't think Pansy would be Pansy if she didn't believe that Voldemort would win. It's a belief that she's grown up and into thinking and for her it would be impossible to think that purebloods would lose. They were purebloods, after all!

Yes, poor Pansy underwent a bit of a shock in this chapter. Everything in her world has changed and nothing will ever be the same. I'm glad that the emotions came through well for you, especially since Pansy doesn't tend to show them very openly.

I don't think that Pansy is quite capable of a breakdown. :P Her whole education has been on retaining control of herself, as that's how a lady and a pureblood would act. I really appreciate your comment about how Pansy hasn't lost everything that she was before because then she wouldn't be Pansy at all... And this story wouldn't exist, since it's a story about Pansy adjusting to life after the conclusion of the war.

I hope that it's made you curious enough to read on! :P Thanks for your lovely review!
