Hiya Nix! Review, review, reviews for you :)

Epic banner.

Iím only about a third way through, and I really think you nailed Dracoís tone so far. I can hear him saying all these things and his dialogue with Pansy is very spot on. Spoiledish sounding, and very haughty. Dracoís one those characters that really, really gets rung through the ringer in fanfic, so itís refreshing to see you capture him well!

Yikes, well-chosen setting, the backdrop of the Astronomy Tower (given the following nightís events) sets up a sharp contrast and demonstrates fully why they cannot be together, which I believe is the point of the challenge, so well done!

I know itís AU and all, but I have to say Iím not sure if this Harry felt true to his characterization to me. Didnít he practically love-hate Dumbledore at this junction, like confused about all the half-stories and weight of the stress of being the ďsaviorĒÖand heís such an awkward lover/romancer, I just donít seem him as an ardent lover. But who knows, heís also snogging his sworn enemy all around the castle, so this Harry is capable of a lot of different things than the book haha.

Anywho, the tension was great and I sense some semblance of redemption for the choices Dracoís making here, and enjoy reading his side of the 6th book events in this fic :) Your dialogue was very natural, I didnít see any typos, and thought you did a great job with the challenge and one-shot overall!

Author's Response: Hi! I'm so glad you think I've captured Draco so well. I do love writing him and he's one of my favorite characters to write. Yes, the Astronomy Tower seemed like the perfect place for them to meet, ironically. I don't know that Harry hated Dumbledore at this point... but I also haven't read HBP in ages and it's something I've been meaning to do since I plan on writing more Drarry. In the movie, he seems so much more go-with-the-flow than in previous movies, but maybe that's just the director/producer's interpretation. He is kind of awkward with Ginny though in the romance department so I can understand that it might seem a bit of stretch for him to be so open with Draco.

Anyway, thank you so much for the lovely review! I really enjoyed it!
