REVIEW TAG!

I don't usually read stories like this, but I was in an adventurous mood, and your writing is always so excellent, that I thought I might give this a go. I love me a good Draco-gets-better story, so I couldn't resist!

I must say that I'm not even a little bit disappointed that I read this. I will forever be envious of your mad descriptive skillz. You manage to paint the scene and the characters without using unnecessary words, which is totally awesome. There seems to be some direction to this as well, and it's great that it's so evident in the first chapter.

I really enjoy your characterisation of Draco. Whilst it's not how I imagined him after the War, it's still very believable and rings true of what we know about him. It's going to be a long and painful journey for him, and I'm glad that I can tag along for the ride!

Obviously, you don't need to be told how good a chapter this was. First chapters always give me grief, so I stand in awe of your superior first chapter skills. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Author's Response: Hi, there!

If you're after a "Draco gets better" story... well, this one gets there eventually. It takes a pretty long and winding path, though.

Aww, that's such a nice thing to say! One of the goals I had for myself with this story was to try to do more with descriptions and less with narrative and dialog. The first chapter pretty much sets the course for the rest of the story. This is about Draco and Astoria falling in love, and all of the things they deal with along the way.

I'm really pleased that you liked the way I wrote Draco. He seemed very sullen and withdrawn during Half-Blood Price and Deathly Hallows, so I tried to extend that into the very early part of his adulthood while preserving a bit of that snark and arrogance that define him throughout the first five books.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading and reviewing!
