Review #1, by Debra20 Tête-à-Tête

14th July 2013:
Heya! Blaise and Hermione eh? Now that I've read this story I confess I'm intrigued by the pair. I would be curious to read more of them as they seem to fit (a lot more than Dramione in any case...)

I think you did a GREAT job at this! Excellent characterisation for Hermione and amazing fleshing out of Zabini's character. He's a minor one in the books so we don't have that much to go one and it's a real pleasure when I discover stories that handle minor characters so well! They dynamic was delicious to read! Deep down, I am a sucker for relationships of this kind, even if in real life I wouldn't like being in one. You could say it's my guilty pleasure. You delivered their lines naturally and realistically and you built up a tension that ended with that amazing twist! I cannot help but wonder what's in store for Hermione next having him as her boss. Not to mention those little implications at their past together...they're details that make the pair's feelings more believable. Well done!

Review #3, by butterbeergal Tête-à-Tête

23rd November 2010:
I have never read this ship before, though it does bear some sort of semblance to Dramione, which I (secretly) enjoy when well-written.

I thought the dialogue intensive format worked rather well for this one, especially in establishing the tension between the two. Too much internal monologue/thoughts/etc wouldn't have been quite as effective. I could definitely imagine Hermione being riled up by his demeanor. I loved your choice of words for Blaise's dialogues. They were very formal and aristocratic, so much like your quintessential Slytherin. Even though you hardly gave any background information about them and whatever their relationship was in the past, I could still feel the weight of their history on me as I read on.

And that ending was brilliant. I mean, honestly, who doesn't love a supremely open-ended one-shot? ;) Oh, the possiblities.

Definitely enjoyed this, in case I haven't made it clear enough. :P Look forward to reading more of your work.


Author's Response: Thanks for the awesome review Gill :D This was quite a challenge to write at the time because I was quite a descriptive writer - and still am in many ways - but I really had to focus on making dialogue sing in a way I never had before. And truthfully I feel like I learned so much and improved so much after doing this. Kind of made me see the value of it, I guess. I love writing Blaise because he has those Slytherin traits that are so fun to write, but without the very clear Draco-angst. He's a bit more of a blank slate and I always seem to write him in a humorous context. I guess it's just fun :P

Anyway thanks for the review and for stopping by to check out some of my work :D

this cant just be a one - shot it doesnt explain or finish or really imply enough to be a one shot. Make it a series -- i'd read it!

Author's Response: It's one of three connected one shots... but I haven't posted the sequels on this archive because I dont really post here anymore :)

I love the way you write Blaise.
This is a great one shot.
The only problem is I was hoping it went on for another 30 chapters!
Great work.

I loved it! From Please refrain from talking further.

"If I must be punished with your presence, I cannot bear the added pain of your voice.”the witty banter to Blaise's snide remarks."

To the twist at the end, it was a great read xD

Author's Response: Haha thanks hun - I'm glad you enjoyed it, it was a fun piece to write :D

I loved it when she hit him with her shoe, I'm always tempted to use my shoe as a weapon. It's a shame this is a one shot, it'd be nice to see the rest of this story.

Author's Response: I'm deeply considering doing a prequel or sequel for this one-shot. It was just a little piece I threw together but the response has been quite positive. Thank you for your thoughts :)

Hey there, hun. :) I've come to leave that review you requested in the forums.

I really enjoyed reading this. You may have been out of your element, but just by reading this, I really couldn't tell. The diologue was very clever. You had me laughing several times throughout this piece. It was very effective, and I found the ending to be rather ironic. Lovely job!


Author's Response: Thanks Hun - much appreciated! I was so paranoid people wouldn't get my humour, Lol! I had a lot of fun writing this and I'm glad you enjoyed it too :D
Thanks for your kind words.

Review #23, by fromtheashes248 Tête-à-Tête

7th October 2007:
oh, you so have to continue this!!! don't leave us in suspense! i HAVE to know what happened between them, which means you must, at the very least, write a sequel. or a prequel. or a sequel with quite a few flash backs. please? pretty please? with a cherry on top??? PLEASE!!!

okay, enough of my begging. obviously i enjoyed the story. the only disappointing thing about it was that it ended! (which is why you must continue it, but i digress) it was very well written. you said in the summary that you were out of your element, but i would never have known if you hadn't mentioned it. you don't struggle with the style in any way.

a refreshing bit of blaise/hermione. you don't often see them years after having some sort of relationship; usually it's the beginning of one.

please write a sequel. or if you can't for whatever reason, please just tell me what sort of history you were thinking of when you wrote it. it's obvious that you had something specific in mind, and that's the trademark of a great writer; to think out an entire situation, even if the reader never discovers the details. it adds a level of depth and maturity. definite 10/10!!!

Author's Response: Lmao thank you for your enthusiasm! I haven't yet decided whether or not to do a follow on piece for this, as you can see it is open-ended enough to allow for such a thing when the time is right. So it's a maybe :P
But I'm thrilled you loved it so much. Thank you for this lovely review.

Very interesting. Not many people can pull off constant dialogue while getting the plot on its way but my dear I think you have. I loved the twist at the end. Great job! 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you so much. This one was quite the challange I assure you. xox

hahaahaha nice. will you be continuing, or is it a oneshot?

Author's Response: Thanks :D
Actually this was just a one-shot.. but I'm not necessarily going to discount the possibility of a follow on.
