Wow that was a moving one shot. Thank you. P
Author's Response: Thank you :) There's a second part coming.
Author's Response: Ah, no, I confused my stories, sorry ;)
wonderful! even though I have other romantic wishes for Harry, I still really liked the way you presented the story...and tying in those song lyrics...almost as if that song was made for your story.
it's also a great insight into the many ramifications of Lord Voldemort's reign of terror...not many would stop to think about the families of Death Eaters, but you did, and did it well :)
Author's Response: Thanks for your review, I'm glad you liked the story. Actually, it came to me because of the song, so it's no wonder they fit together so well.
This was reall well written and I enjoyed it very much. A series like this or more about Pansy's fate would be very interesting.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review :) I fear there will not be more, though.
I really, really liked this. I was just waiting to see what the rest of it would be, I thought you tied that element into Harry and Draco's story very well, especially Harry's guilty concious.
I liked the way you told the story with flashbacks, it worked really well and didn't seem choppy. I don't know the song reference, but you did a good job in only using the essential parts, so that the lyrics were not obtrusive in any way.
I also thought the interaction between the characters was really good... especially Hermione's simple "don't" to Harry. That really stood out. It was so canon, and yet so personal... it made the story very real.
Author's Response: Thank you for this truly long review! In fact, I built Harry's and Draco's story around that element ;) I needed background for the Pansy-stuff, so I made up the Harry/Draco. It doesn't come as a surprise to me that you and probably most of the other readers won't know the song, since it is from a German group. The "don't" was just something that struck me as something Hermione would do. She, Ron and Harry have known each other for so long by then that I'm pretty sure she and Ron would immediately recognise _that look_ on his face, as Ron puts it -- and although Hermione is a know-it-all during their time at school and can be a little annoying with her obsession with homework etc. she always seemed to be an empathetic person, at least to me, and capable of using no more words than necessary, if the situation requires it.
Wow. That was really well written. I am a little confused by Pansy's last comment. Who is she talking about? Thanks for sharing your story with us. Excellent.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing. Er...she's talking about Draco, the man she'd been betrothed to for all her life and who left her for Harry - I though it would become clear before.
This was such a sad, interesting take on the post-Voldemort world. It's very astute of you to imagine that the Death Eaters' children might have to bear the burden of their parents' sins. You did a really nice job of making Pansy into a real person, especially through Draco and Ron's interactions with her (past and present). The comparison of Pansy and Hermione through their tutoring of their friends was very well done. All the best, Sophie
Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading and reviewing :) It unfortunately is in human nature that people condemn children for their parents' sins. I'm particuarly glad that in your eyes I managed to "make Pansy ino a real person", since there's almost nothing said about her in canon.
