Hey there! So, I've seen you around the forums and the the Gryffindor common room and everything, but never really talked to you, so when I saw your post in the review tag I thought it would be the perfect way to strike up a conversation xD

This is such a hilarious story! I love how you've characterized Snape - he's so bitter and sarcastic and strangely interested in hair-care products. You've done a fantastic job of presenting the future of Slytherin House to us, in all their glory. I was chuckling by the end of the first paragraph, and Crabbe's creepy bit about fire and the (unproven!) murder of his sister made me giggle even more.

Goyle and Pansy were suitably oblivious and vapid, respectively, while Draco Malfoy Had the most hilarious career path I've heard. Lucius does have fabulous hair, though, it must be said (so much sassy hair flicking from him in CoS ;) )

I think Blaise Zabini is the true gem of the bunch though- how did you write that section without dying of laughter / getting sick?

I love how you outlined all of SLytherin's faults, while hinting a Snape's own flaws. A little hair grease here, caustic comments and sheer indifference are some well known Snape attributes that you displayed perfectly here. I also loved how you put in those ittle comments that show Snape's hero worship of Dumbledore. Well done!

Okay, I think I need to stop rambling, you don't really need me to tell you everything that happened in you story; after all, you wrote it :)

I loved this one-shot, and I'll be back to review something else soon :D

Author's Response: Back-to-back reviews on a one-shot that's more than a year old? This has to be some sort of record. One that I have to say I'm very pleased to be able to set! And it's lovely to make your acquaintance!

There's nothing more fun, at least for me, than to indulge my inner need to write mean, bitter, snarky Snape. When he isn't being all serious and spying on the Dark Lord and killing Dumbledore, he is an absolutely hilarious character to write.

I read a fic a long time ago -- don't ask me where or what the title was; I honestly cannot remember -- where Draco decided to become a hairdresser because he admired his father's hair. The idea stuck with me. And Zabini's section was actually the first one I wrote. I did suffer from a lot of sniggering while drafting that one.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed this. I think I wrote four stories for this challenge in total. It was one of the most fun thing I ever got involved with in the forums. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
