Review #1, by Hogwarts27 Overachiever? Meet Bad Boy.

9th July 2014:
Hi! It looks like I'm a latecomer to this little story, but I loved it! You've written the very first Dramione that I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed! Their heartbreaking saga was SO - well honest and believable. My favorite part was their first kiss. I was definitely feeling the heat of Draco's raging hormones when I read that. Hmm, getting locked in a closet - gee, who would've thunk? I loved your psycho-analysis of the ship - You said everything I ever wanted to say about the ship. And you had me laughing and smiling all the way through. Thanks for writing MY one true Dramione story. It was fantastic.

Review #2, by Iellwen Overachiever? Meet Bad Boy.

11th December 2013:
Damn.

Whether you like it or not, this is definitely in the Top 15 Best Dramiones I've ever read and I'm one of those weirdos that actually likes the ship (though I won't apologize for it even if I feel like I should right now) so I've read a few and I'm actually writing one atm (please feel free to read it and grab its flaws to choke it to death; I thrive from criticism).

Pot-head Malfoy was excellent, the "they lived happily ever after - not" was hilarious and the disastrous progression of their marriage just marvelous.

There are so many great aspects but the best way to praise you is, in this case, thank you. Cuz man, I had fun reading!

Author's Response: Argh!
I have responded to this about 3 times in the last 5 minutes,a and keep forgetting to hit save preview or whatever the button is!
I am so glad you liked this story!
And please dont be ashamed of liking dramione!
After writing this little story, I kinda developed a sort of affection for it myself!

But I will never be able to write Draco/Hermion without thinking about hot purple panties...
lol

thankyou so much for taking the time to review it, it really means a lot. Glad you had fun!

Review #3, by Rumpelstiltskin Overachiever? Meet Bad Boy.

4th November 2013:
Anthea! (I did it right this time! ^.^)

I saw this and had to give it a go because Dramione is one of my least favorite pairings ever! I knew you wouldn't let me down!

The narration is absolutely brilliant! It not only draws the readers in for more connectivity (hooray!) but also sets the sarcastic tone and humorous mood for the rest of the story. I don't think I've ever actually read a story where the narrator is speaking directly to me or bringing me along in the story. It was really quite fun.

During Hermione's introduction, all I could think of was a parody of a Cover Girl commercial with the "Sleak-Ezy" solution and the phrase "from looking like a nerd to a total knock-out." This. Was. FABULOUS! (Don't mind Rumpel, you know there's something wrong with me.)

The interactions were incredibly hysterical. Actually there were many pieces in this that held ridiculously humorous qualities. You know, the Crabbe/Goyle ghost complex, poisoning people, purple panty-shots, Neville, Draco's newly acquired speech patterns. Eh, there really are too many to list. I loved the spectrum of comedy too. It ranged from low-brow (because who doesn't love boogers and undies) to the hints of high-brow.

I was already all but on the floor with laughter and then I reached the "or did they" continuation.

I think that you may have killed me!

Author's Response: Author's Response: yay! not the only person in the world who isnt a fan of draco and Hermione!
I have to admit, after writing my anti-ness out, I actually feel quite affectionate about Dramione at the moment.

wasnt sure about Narrator talking in first person, but it was incredibly fun to write, and I think (having never written a parody before) that as it was a parody, I actually decided I didnt care if it would work or not cause it was meant to be bad.

Gave me a lot of licence to enjoy myself actually.
covergirl ads. should totally star hermione aww you made me laugh!

Hints of high brow? certainly not intentionally.
I hope I didnt kill you. killed your laughter or jsut killed you? I m sorry either way. Zombie rumpel would be bad. Im kinda not sorry i wrote it. Excorcised some demons there. the ending was my treat to myself - and if you know any one in a relationship like that, slap them. slap them hard.
then make them read my totally true to life dramione.
;)
thanks for the awesome review :)

Review #4, by Lululuna Overachiever? Meet Bad Boy.

3rd November 2013:
Hello, here from review tag! :)

I really enjoyed this! Parodies are my not-so-guilty pleasure, and this definitely did not disappoint. While I'm sure there are some good Dramiones out there, you really picked up on some typical aspects of an idealized and unrealistic relationship and made it hilarious. I enjoyed the tone of the writer throughout the story, and all the little jabs and metafictional points you made- it as really effective. :)

The transformation of Hermione into the woman of Draco's dreams was hilarious, and I loved the -slightly random but all the better for it- description of her speech to the students about flexibility, and hearing their reactions after about how on earth she did it? Draco's poisoning people and his sob story made me laugh too, and every time he poisoned someone else I giggled a little.

I think the mention of the ghost of Crabbe/Goyle was one of my favourite parts of the story. Ever since the actor in the movie debacle it's been even harder to tell them apart and you really played into that and what flat characters they are with how he kept recycling the same insults at Hermione.

The ending was a great satire about dependent relationships though it made me almost a little sad for people who are in them! Poor Hermione, having to see Draco go and poison her friends and see him get back with Pansy. :P I'm glad you included the little plot twist at the end, it rounded the story off nicely and helped make it original even in the world of Dramione parodies!

Great job with this, I enjoyed it a lot! :D

Author's Response: Hey! thankyou for such a positive encouraging review!
I confess. Ive never read a parody (well thats a lie, as of 5 minutes ago, I read yours! it was great!), dont know what it is meant to be, and didnt know whether this fit the bill.
so thankyou for the encouragement.

the "voice" in yours cracked me up... i think that was something I tried to achieve with the "tone of the writer" and the meta fictional asides..
I need more of an education. I had to google what metafictional was, and I see now that you are referring to my comments on the plot and the story itself which are thrown threw it. I think. (Pm me and correct me if I wrong? Im here to learn.. my formal education was science, so I dont get grammar and stuff, meaning HPFF is an awesome education for me!

I didnt know there was an actor debacle! Out comes Dr google again! Your reviews are so educational! this is why I love learning so much.

And yeah. I feel sad for anyone in a codependent relationship too. Having been there, I kinda get it, you know, but watching a friend going through the same thing... sucks.

Was a nice opportunity to completely destroy dramione... and exorcise some of those things I really really want to say in real life and just know that it is not a good thing to do.. I am a sucker for disney endings.. it is only ok for a non disney ending in a dramione as far as I am concerned. :P


and I giggled almost continually as I wrote this. Poisioning people - you know, just casually. Glad you did too!
