Hey there ^_^. I think you really kept them in character throughout the story and explained their relationship (if you can call it that) very convincingly. It was a surprise when Pansy went back to her old self but I was kind of waiting for what she would do to prove herself a true Slytherin. Also liked how the title played in until the very end. Good job at pulling off such a difficult pairing!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really appreciate your feedback, especially since I was extremely worried over how convincing I was writing the pairing. It was my first try at it, after all. Thanks again!

Hey, it's DarkRose! :D

Nice one! I've never read this pairing before...

I loved your characterization; I could feel Harry's disappointment at the end; good job!

I, as always, like your writing style!

Keep it up! :D

I really liked this fic! So well written and you captured everything i wanted out of the chapter :)
Even though I knew that she would blow him off after, it still came as a slight shock and reminded me that she is still a slytherin haha
well done (:

I enjoyed reading your story and how you showed the flirting between Harry and Pansy. But I kind of feel sorry for Harry as he was only a conquest for Pansy. Thanks for writing.

I enjoyed this one-shot a lot. I thought the development of Harry and Pansy's interest (or whatever it should be called) in one another was very convincing. You gave us enough details to fill us in quite well, but saved the in-depth part for the pivotal event. I am impressed by how you wrote this difficult ship.

I could really feel the tension and anticipation. You built it up really well, with all the glances and flirting and so on. And then, whose curiosity (among other things) wouldn't be aroused by that note? As for the scene in the bathroom, it was very hot, for lack of a better word. And of course, finding a free bathroom . . . well, I'm sure they're not the first or the last, even if I personally find it a bit weird. I do appreciate the irony, though, as the setting pretty well sums up what their relationship--or lack thereof--is worth.

In the books, I never liked Pansy as a character. JKR didn't write her to be liked. Most of the time, I don't especially enjoy her in fanfics either, since she's usually written as either a totally evil person or some little sexpot who becomes Hermione's best friend and confidant. Neither of those depictions do a whole lot for me. However, sometimes I come across a Pansy that I like, and yours is one of them. I think the ending shows she is sufficiently in character, yet your portrayal of her also clearly shows the reader how Harry could be attracted. This works best post-Hogwarts, of course, as set your story.

Oh I loved it ^_^ I'm amazed how well you let the title play into the story. Pansy conquered him all right, he was own peronal conquest veni vidi vici and all that jazz. Wonderful job, I love how Pansy remained in character. I love that you made her engaged to Blaise though I am curious as to how he would've reacted if he's caught them.busy in the bathroom.

Excellent job. 10/10

Author's Response: :D I'm so glad! I was really stumped for a while when I was writing this, because I didn't know if I was incorporating the title enough. That was one of the things I was worried most about. It's great that it all worked out and they didn't seem OOC. Thanks so much for the review! You're right, though. I would like to see Blaise's reaction, as well haha.
