I chose this story because it has fewer reviews than most/all of the others on your page and also because it's been podcasted. Seeing as this is an HPPC gift exchange, it seemed appropriate. So I am actually listening to the podcast and reading along at the same time.

One thing I noticed: Typo in "Unblemishing Charm" (you left out the N).

Well, the male character is pretty obviously Draco, so I'm going to have to guess that the female character is Pansy. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about her characterization. This level of vanity and self-centeredness is pretty extreme. She's also pretty convinced everyone else notices how beautiful and perfect she is.

I don't really think this is how other people would necessarily see her. However, I can buy that she'd see herself this way. Also, I definitely think she'd be pretty annoyed by Draco not paying her enough attention. :P And honestly, he really didn't have enough free time that year to have a social life, so I can totally understand her refusing to put up with it (even if she is a bit of a . . . well, you know).

I'm also glad I listened to this as a podcast rather than just reading through it. If I had only been reading, I don't know if I would have been able to get past how off-putting Pansy was. In the podcast, though, you were able to really show her attitude, which made it more believable (if that's the right word, which it isn't quite).

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing!

I am glad you listened to the podcast too while reading this story, thanks :)

Oh I did? Thanks for pointing out that typo.

You guessed it all right :) My aim in this fic was to show how Pansy saw herself, not how others see her, which is why she is convinced that she is so awesome and perfect, lol.

Haha I totally get that yeah.

I am glad you liked this overall and the podcast made it more believable of sorts for you. Thanks!

{and I am sorry I am so slow in responding to all your reviews, my sincere apologies!}
