Heya! Perelandra here with your review! So sorry that I've taken forever to get here. Life and all. :S I'm here, though, and that's what matters, right? XD

I chose this one because its very rare to find a piece that's about Pansy without her being a stuck-up student, obsessed with Draco and just being...well, Pansy. JKR has mention that she hated Pansy so that's why we've never seen her in a different light.

You, on the other hand, have managed to definitely to capture a Pansy that's just downright terrified of being alone, a failure and that's just heart breaking. Your story gave me a glimpse of her past: a dotting mother and father, dinner parties, the center of attention. But after the war "poof" it was gone and now all of that is gone. The fact that her mother just up and left without her was so sad!

When she starts to put on the make up, all I could picture was this girl with smeared make-up, looking crazy and almost clown-ish.

She doesn't know what 'mask' to put on or what role to play. She's this empty shell that's just waiting to become the worshiped Pansy. I could only imagine what would have happened to her when she found out that Draco married Astoria.

The end, however, was beautiful. Almost poetic. It left me wanting to hug the poor child.

So overall this was a beautiful fic about a broken character. :( I guess the only CC I have is that I wished it were longer, haha. But oh well. Thank you for letting me read this one-shot!

Until next time

Author's Response: Hi Rosie! Of course it's the main thing, and it's just so nice of you to do this you needn't worry about that!

I know what you mean about it being hard to find something when she's the person we all hate, so that's why when I saw the challenge I knew I had to try and make her seem niceish!

I'm so glad that you liked the different light I put in her though as it was so much fun to do. I had never really thought much about the drastic change of life, but it is so true, and so horrible in a way too because you can never predict when it will happen to you either.

Haha, that's what I picture too! It was my sort of way of trying to tie in the whole acting/life on a stage theme so let's just hope she had her calm mask on when she found out about that.

I'm so glad that you liked this story, and thank you so much for all these wonderful compliments! Maybe I'll do a spin-off one day!
