Hey Kiana! I know I've still got more of Against All Odds to read but I couldn't resist when I saw this in the recently added pages. I'm always intrigued by your one-shots as they seem to have been written at strange times, so the results are always interesting - I'm jealous of how good they are though!

I've not really read any stories about Pansy before but I liked this bitter portrayal of her. I think it makes sense that she'd end up this way after the war, especially since we know that she didn't get the happy ending she wanted with Draco. So it was really interesting to read this characterisation of her, and I have to say that I liked it and might have been a bit too happy at the thought of her being miserable :P I did feel sorry for her, though!

I liked the way that you briefly mentioned her father and then her mother as well, because it helped give me an idea about why Pansy now is the way she is. There's this sense that she now has nothing to work towards and is kind of lost, with nobody to anchor her in to anything. It follows that she's trying to rebel against something, anything just to try and help her work out who she is and what she's meant to be doing with her life.

There was some great description in this as well, and I liked the way that you wove it into the story without overloading it with description. I think that maybe if there was something that the story focused on a little more and maybe tied the beginning and ending together it would make this even better, but I really enjoyed reading it as it is!

Author's Response: Hey Sian! Don't worry about it, I'm just happy to see you around again :D Yeah I really should develop another way of getting to sleep because I have a ton of half-written ones from it!

I've never read/written anything about her before either, so this was a new experience for me. Yeah I thought so too, because she was just left there and never mentioned again so it does make you wonder what she did. Sian, that's not very nice reviling in her misery like that :P I'm glad you felt a little sorry, though!

I'm glad you liked the mentions because I didn't want to go into too much depth but I felt it was necessary. Wow, that's such a great analysis and exactly what I meant to convey, so I'm glad it made sense. I've never felt as lost as her but it must be a horrible feeling.

I've never written description like that before, but it was a fun experience writing it with sparseness so I recommend it! I added in a few more lines and such to tie it together as I realised it didn't do that too much :P Thanks for another amazing review, Sian! ♥
