OMG! brilliant story. congrats, you are the first fanfic writer to ever make me feel sorry for Draco! poor little ferret, i never knew :) such a good twist at the end. you convince yourself its Harry and then, it's not. poor boy, well done! ~*~10~*~
Author's Response: The first to make u feel sorry for the Ferret?? Awww- WOW! That's a huge compliment! I'm so glad you liked it, and I would LOVE for you to check out my other stuff!
i found the whole story kind of confusing but then at the last sentence the whole story made sence! Great twist! I was shocked when i found out it wasn't Harry but Draco! good story even if it was sad 10/10 for sure!
Author's Response: thank you!!! I'm glad you appreciated it! I've written other stuff, too, and i would LOVE for you to take a look!!1 Check my stories file.....
omg!! alot of d/a stuff isnt really that good, but this was great!!! u always hear of harry cuttin himself (i even read a ginny the other day) but never a draco! it was an awesome twist, i like flipped out! ur a great author!!
Author's Response: Thank you!!! I'm so glad you liked it! I have a whole other "series" if you'd like to read more of my stuff- it starts with "The Mystery Letter", but you can just search my name. Thanks again!
Oh I got teary too... That was so depressing in a really well written kind of way. Meaning, great job. I started to suspect towards the end that it was Draco and not Harry but the ambiguity had me fooled for quite awhile. It worked very well. And it really made me think.
Author's Response: I think that making people think was my whole plan. I'm so glad it worked, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading and taking time to review!
wow... for the first time i am speechless after a story!!! it was amazing... i thought harry was the one who would kill himself!!!! ur a great writer and i will be sure to read all of your stuff!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you thank yoU!!! I'm glad that you're going to read my other stuff, too- it's a lot different from this fic- but it all ties in together (well, the other 3 do). Thanks again! Happy reading!
Omigod. that was the saddest. i've never cried cause of D/A fics. that was the saddest thing i've ever written. the funny thing is, i cried even more when it said it was Draco.
Author's Response: It always seems to be the person you least expect, doesn't it? ...Thanks for reading.
Hi. I never really liked the Dark/Angst fics but I decided to give them a go only because there's a lot of dark things going on with my friends these days. This story really touched me all the way down to my heart. See my best friend is doing the same thing and she doesn't understand why its wrong. I wish she could but she doesn't. So reading this story really made things not better but I know the thinking behind it now. But it was a very well written story and I really did think it was Harry. Great job, a 10!
Author's Response: I'm glad that it helped you understand-- and I hope that it will help your friend, too. That's really the reason why I wrote it... and I'm also glad you thought it was Harry- I wrote it this way to help people grasp that sometimes the one who is hurting the most is the one you least expect. I hope all turns out all right. You'll make it through- and I hope your friend does, too. Just please- don't turn him/her away because of what they're doing. As hard as it is for you- this is when they need people like you by their side the most. Thanks for reading. :-)
I did recommend you but I'm not sure she read it, I will get her too it's so good. You didn't belittle my problems and they don't seem so bad anymore, your fic and a combination of some friends did that! All I wanted to say was that my problems seem less because i can deal with rumors, because they are just that, rumors, and I have people to turn to and I can deal with the people who started them. my problem is nothing that would make me fele like that. And seeing other people with problems worse than yours, real or fictional, tells you that you are ok really. So thank you again for helping me to put things into perspective and for the excellent fic I am glad I read. It's written so well. i think i might read it again.
Author's Response: thanks. i found that reading... well- depressing fics kind of makes me feel better, too. In a way. I'm so gald u like it, and i'm even gladder that it helped. is gladder a word? lol :-)
For once, I am speechless, but I'm going to try my best to write a rational review. First, the story was well written and I was really certain that it was Harry and I was very relieved when it wasn't. In that respect I think it was masterful writing. On the other hand, I have to say that this story is very disturbing, which as a writer may be what you are trying to elict from your readers. This story was way too dark for me and I'm really torn because I really like your talent as a writer. Anyway, I admire how you wrote the story, but the content didn't appeal to me. I feel really bad writing this and I wondered if I even should review it, but I wanted to at least offer my humble opinion.
Author's Response: Hehe- i'm glad you were 'relieved'. That's an interesting way to put it. I agree, it IS really, really dark, and I personally don't really care for 'dark/angsty' fics myself- that's why I elected not to go on and on about how the "mirror ripped at his flesh, tearing the bone down to the marrow"... EEEEWWWWW. Who wants to read THAT, unless they're... well, very sadistic? I know I don't. It means a HUGe amount to me that even if the subject content doesn't agree with you that you could still appreciate the writing. That means more to me than you'll ever know. Its praise in the highest form- kind of like when you tell the actor portraying a villian "I absolutely HATED your character". You hated 'them' onstage, but as a person- you really really respected what they did. Thanks, Czar.
i really, really, really, hate to say this because for some reason you just come across as a nice person, here it goes:It wasn't very good. It was well written at first but then the ending was just like: "Huh? What's all that about, dude? So what are you like saying that Draco is like the other boy who lived? Whatever ,man. What has the world come to...?" Sorry about that. *Nervous smile* I'll give you a 5 because I just like you and for effort. I'm sorry, I'm really really(walks off) really, re.....
Author's Response: Don't be sorry. I'm glad you were honest. I really appreciate it, believe me. But as far as the end goes, I in no way meant to imply that Draco is another 'boy who lived', I just wanted to get across that he had also been tortured by LV too. I very nearly considered changing it to "You aren't the only one that's been tortured by Death Eaters, you know", but for some reason LV just seemed to really pack more of a punch. I wanted to get across that LV doesn't CARE who he hurts- his enemies or his followrs (more specifically, the family of his minions), as long as he gets what he wants. I hope that helps to explain it... and maybe boost the rating- if even in your head. Thanks for your honesty- this makes me strive to make sure that the "right" point comes across in my writing. thanks again.
You made me cry. It was heartbreaking even though it was someone we should hate, just how could you hate him now. And I really thought it was Harry. it was very clever and totally believable. It is beautifully written and I'm so glad you told me to read it because i don't think i've read a Dark/An gsty fic before. Although it isn't real and is just a story it puts things into perspective. As bad as my day has been, it is nothing compared to that and makes you realise that your own worries are not really that important in comparison. Thank you, I am in someway happier now, I know that doesn't really make sense but it does to me. Just thank you, I will tell my friend to read this and tell her she has to review. So if Angelfire05 reviews it's because I recommened you! *10* of course.
Author's Response: Interesting isn't it? How it's always the person you 'least expect' that's hurting. I'm glad that it could make you feel better about your day. I never mean to belittle people's problems- so I want you to know that just because 'Draco's' problems are depicted to be 'the worst' that doesn't make your issues hurt any less. I hope that everything works out for you, and that you've got somewhere to turn to if things get tough. :-) thanks for reccommending me.
cant believe no1 has review that waa amazing!!!!! i thought for sur eit was harry.... very clever bet ur gloating 10* for sure!!!
Author's Response: hehhee- yeah, i'm hoping that people will think that.. actually it's like a double inuendo- when things like that happen, its almost NEVER who you'd suspect. thanks for reading!
