I'm here from review tag.

I've recently been reading post-war (second war) stories and I have found that I quite enjoy them. This is the first post-war story that I have read that focuses on Draco Malfoy.

What a horrible (and extremely interesting to read) path Draco has taken. It's intriguing to see him in this light, drunk and pathetic. I think that's what is making this so appealing to me.

Ah, this is also the story of Draco and Astoria...another first of mine. I've been straying away from them because I couldn't figure out who the hey Astoria was. I know who she is now, but I realize that I could have just read the first chapter of this and figured it out much sooner.

This sounds like it is the beginning of something wonderful. This was extremely enjoyable and a terrific hook. I'm left wondering what direction you are going to take this.

That being said, I'll be back soon to read the next chapter!

Author's Response: Hi, there. Thanks for stopping by!

I really love post-war stories. They're my favorite to read and write. I had the inspiration to focus on Draco after having a much older version of him as a supporting character in Conspiracy of Blood.

Draco isn't doing well at all at this point in the story. He has a raging substance abuse problem and he's suffering from depression and PTSD.

Astoria sort of comes along out of nowhere and helps him pick himself up out of the gutter. He's in such a bad way that she seems sort of like an angel to him, which sort of adds to his infatuation. It isn't exactly "deep" at this point in the story, but it does motivate him to want to change.

I really hope you're able to read more. The first chapter is mostly just a hook to set up the story, and I think -- hope, anyway -- that it all gets a lot better fleshed out in later chapters.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
