Hi, here with your requested review!

So let me just say that I've never really read about Draco/Astoria before, so it was something different and I quite liked it.

I loved how it was written in first person because it made it feel really personal and intimate. I really got the feeling that she was overwhelmed by Draco when she was younger at Hogwarts but felt she couldn't/shouldn't do anything about it.

I loved the bit where you mention the notes saying to meet me in Hogsmede, that was a nice touch, especially when you say she never turns up.

So when it turns around and she see's Draco drinking alone, I was happy that she had the courage to go up to him. It shows just how far she comes.

You really showed Astoria's feelings for Draco and how they changed as she grew up. It was also interesting to read about her family not choosing a side, because in the little I've read in FF about her family, they're always portrayed badly.

I noticed a typo somewhere ... in the middle... but naturally I can't find it now! I knew what you meant though so it wasn't a problem.

Overall I really liked it, you managed to get Astoria's feelings for Draco out subtly but powerfully.

Author's Response: Hello :) Thanks for dropping by, and I'm sorry for this ridiculously late response.

I haven't read much about them either. It was the first time for me, writing about them. I'm glad you liked it :)

I was going for exactly that feel. I believe that first person narration helps you establish a rather personal relationship with the reader, and I'm glad you got that. As for Astoria, I'm sure she was overwhelmed and to some extent, intimidated by him :p

I was just thinking of everything that might embody the feeling of teenage crush, and that just seemed to fit, really!

I think the war would have changed too. And of course she's a little more grown up than she was during her school years. I'm glad you enjoyed that :) I haven't seen this portrayal either, and I always felt that it might have happened to someone who wasn't really into it all. The war would have bred some sort of disinterest, which is why I wrote her like that!

Haha :p I'll fix it when I edit, whatever it is ;)

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
