Review #1, by ProfessorMinnie A Terrible Train Ride

5th March 2016:
This is for the HPFF Review-A-Thon and one of your challenge rewards :D

So I really liked this chapter. I think you explained why Draco was so icy to Hermione in canon pretty well. Just how long was that train ride, to go from rivals to almost-friends? I want moar! MOAR!

I wonder, before I go into this much further, what Ron and Harry's reactions will be. I imagine Ron will be a lot more hostile than Harry, but knowing Harry's almost obsession with finding out what Draco was doing, I think it's a fair cop to say that he wouldn't be much for Hermione and Draco being friends. I could be wrong. I could be... very wrong.

I think it'd be interesting to see Pansy's reaction, given that she's so close to Draco. Will she turn on him and gossip about him and Harry in equal parlance or will she break off her relationship with Draco?

Very interesting. Very interesting. I think you've set yourself up for a beautiful pairing if they become much more than friendly acquaintances.

I particularly like the story Draco told. However, and this is just my opinion, I think it'd be much stronger as a scene rather than a soliloquy. If I had to suggest anything else, it would be to have a prologue... I love prologues so much. But that's just me :P

Overall, as I said, I think you've set up your plot and characters rather well, and I like how both of them touch on their insecurities rather easily with eachother.

Fascinating, isn't it? Love.

Happy writing!

Author's Response: Hey Minnie!

I have to say that I was really surprised when you decided to review this. This is the oldest story on my AP and one that I'm also in the process of starting completely over/re-writing.

I don't know that they're quite almost friends yet. I just think that perhaps they understand each other a little better now.

Ah. Now you're making the assumption that Ron and Harry will find out. Pansy definitely won't be finding out, but there will be some people who do.

This will be a Draco/Hermione focused story, but if they ever do get to romance it will definitely be a very slow burn.

I understand what you mean in terms of the CC. Like I said, this was my very first attempt at writing and I am currently editing it, so I'll take a look at that.

Glad you like the start of this (even if it's going to change a bit.)
