Review #1, by TreacleTart Cravings.

4th September 2016:
Hi Paula!

I'm here to review your story for my Drapple Challenge.

I thought this was a cute story and an interesting use of the prompt. Instead of having Draco focused on the apple himself, he's worried about fulfilling one of Astoria's crazy pregnancy cravings. What a good husband he is to be up that early out looking for such a specific type of juice.

I did think it was odd that Draco would have any Muggle money at all because he doesn't really seem the type to be out wandering around in a muggle place, but maybe Astoria's softened him up a bit.

I loved that at the end, Draco returns to the house to find Astoria passed out with a breakfast burrito and salsa smeared on her face. The only question I have (and this might be because I've never been to the UK) is whether or not a breakfast burrito would be a common thing there. Like it strikes me as a bit out of place because the last time I talked about Mexican food with UK folk, I realized that they don't really have much authentic Mexican yeah, I wonder about that part.

All in all, I thought this was a good story. The technical aspects of it were good and I didn't notice any typos or mistakes.

Good work! I should be posting the results in a day or two, so keep your eyes peeled.


Author's Response: Hi! I'm so glad you liked it even though it wasn't a true Drapple!

I'd like to think Astoria was a little more muggle friendly and it probably wasn't the first time she craved something you couldn't find in normal magical markets. If so he'd have to have some cash on him!

NoOoO! Now I feel bad for adding it! I included the breakfast burrito because I had a friend from New Mexico rant and rave because she ate at this place called the breakfast club (lol) which had better breakfast burritos there in London than she did in NM and I thought it was hilarious! Maybe it's just a greater London thing?

Thanks for the lovely review! :D

Awe this was very cute, I stumbled across this story on the darks art while I was requesting a banner. Glad I did it gave me a laugh. Quite enjoyed how Draco was muttering to himself.

Author's Response: Hi! :D

Thank you! I like to browse the stories being requested over at TDA too! This was a fun little story to write! I was given the task of including an apple somewhere in the story with either Draco or Scorpius and I just couldn't get the idea of Draco in a farmers' market out of my head!

Thank you so much for taking the moment to leave this review and read my story! It means the world to me!
