Hi Claire! I'm back for another swap!

For some reason, this chapter seemed to have a lighter feel than the previous one. Perhaps it was the quiet and boredom of Pansy's captive existence. I liked it, though, because it felt sort of normal. For a moment, I almost forgot that she was under house arrest and imagined her as a petulant child stuck indoors on a cold, rainy day. I enjoyed reading about how she chose to entertain herself by cleaning up her things and reading.

It's interesting how you've managed to retain Pansy's true personality despite her situation. Even if she can't reign over the other students at Hogwarts, she can still entertain herself by thinking about how much lower they are compared to her. I especially love how she still fantasizes about her happily-ever-after with Draco, as if there is nothing to threaten that and this whole thing with the Ministry and the war will just blow over one day. I was almost surprised when she smoothly concluded that she didn't need her exams to be a trophy wife.

One thing I wasn't quite sure about was your use of the word "strewed" when discussing potentially incriminating objects in the Parkinson home. You may have meant "construed," which signifies a way of interpreting something. "Strewn" refers to things being placed haphazardly about the room or floor.

It'll be very interesting to see how things develop as Pansy's imprisonment term lengthens and she begins to realize the true consequences of the war. I'm very glad you decided to swap with this story :)

Author's Response: Hello! I am finally, finally responding to your fantastic review. Hopefully I can leave you one in return within the next few days.

I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter, even though it had a lighter atmosphere. I'm glad that it felt sort of normal because, of course, Pansy will spend so long inside the house that it should feel like some sort of normal. :)

I'm also really glad that you think Pansy still has her true personality. It's something that I tried really hard to do, and was really hard to do, because Pansy has such a different way of thinking than me.

I'll look into my use of that word. Thanks for pointing it out! :)

Yes, poor Pansy has several shocking developments still in the wings... Thank you for leaving such a thoughtful review! :D
