Hi :)

This was a really wonderful story, Kiana! I love the way you've explored Pansy's dark side - and I mean the darker side than the side that we saw in the books, the girl who made fun of Gryffindors and spread gossip.

I loved the way you characterised her. Before the war I could see her as the type of girl who is mean to people just because she likes the attention. She always seemed so incredibly shallow and fake, and I like that you've taken that fake part of her and really expanded on it after the war. Sure, she can still put on a mask, but what's the point now? Where did it get her during school? I think the war had a lot of effects on people and this feeling of lost-ness (I just made that a word) really seemed to suit Pansy so well, as sad as it is.

I like the back story you gave her too - poor girl, having her mother leave. So she goes back to what is familiar, putting on a mask, but after everything she went through it's not enough anymore.

I don't think my review is even making sense anymore :p But basically, I love the way you've written Pansy - it's beautifully tragic. Your placing in the challenge was well deserved, great job on this!

Author's Response: Kristin! You have been spoiling me recently :D

I'm so glad that you liked the exploration of her dark side as it was so much to peel back her layers. I liked your comments on her fakery, because I often find that fake people are the ones hiding the most things, like with the mask and like with Pansy. It's also helped with me trying to judge fake people in a nicer light.

I'm glad that you liked the back story because I always have the feeling that pureblood families do have a tendency to just get up and leave like that.

The review does make sense so don't worry about that! Thank you for such a wonderful review, it really brightened my day, you definitely deserved your placing too!
