Hello! You've given me such a lovely review for my story that I thought I'd return the favor. And who doesn't love a good Draco/OC?!

Ohhh man. Draco angst is the best kind of angst... especially when it's stemmed from his father. A lot of people seem to assume that he has no depth because of the way he behaves in front of Harry, but he's a really complex character and I think you address it wonderfully here.

I'm interested to know why these characters are dressed so elaborately! This sentence is a bit confusing though: "making her fall to her feet with him." Fall to her knees, maybe? Or am I just totally off base here?

Haha, I laughed aloud at the book titles: Extracurricular Uses for the Imperious Curse and Fun Things to do with Boring Muggles. Oh, Lucius, you sadistic creature.

I like that you chose to have Draco rebel against Lucius. In many cases on HPFF he desperately seeks his father's approval despite resenting him, but I feel that your portrayal is more accurate to canon-Draco.

So Draco has no choice but to interact with the woman he found so stunning earlier. Hmmm! I'm interested to see how this story moves along. :)

Author's Response: Well thanks for returning the favor! That's so nice of you!

Uh oh! I think you may have found an error in the paragraph that I need to edit. Thank you for pointing it out!! :)

Glad you liked the books. I always wonder if people notice those quirky little details, or if they're funny at all, so that made me feel good :)

I never imagined Draco groveling for his father's approval. I mean, I think one could argue that there isn't really a lot of literary evidence (although, I haven't read the books in a while). I mean, I never had the impression he was that way, so it certainly didn't make an impression on me to write him like that.

I must admit, I wrote this story over four years, so my writing definitely matures over the course of the story. If you can stand a little bit of corniness and cliche-ness throughout the first couple of chapters, I would love to hear what you think of it then! I was sixteen when I started it, so I think that may translate a little more than I wanted it to :/

Thank you so much for reviewing, that was really kind of you! And, I'm trying to get through my review thread as quickly as possible, so I'll hit your story back up as soon as I can!
