I enjoyed reading this. You kept both Harry and Draco in character - especially Draco. I agree with you that he's the kind of person who'd care about his own life more than anyone else's. He might be an obnoxious lad, but in your writing you made Draco almost seem to be lovable. You showed the other side to his personality, though I'm not sure how I should describe it... The switching of scenes was a bit confusing, but everything fits together at the end. Though maybe you should place the scenes where Draco hunts for the Horcrux after his encounter with Harry in the library. Then, Harry receives it at the end, during the morning. This way the whole story might be less confusing. But honestly, I loved the way it all came together at the very end, and that note brought a smile to my face. Great job!! You should write more fics about Draco; few people are able to grasp his true characteristics this well.
Author's Response: Thank you. I shall keep the format of the story in mind, but I was hoping that the use of present and past tense in each scene would indacate what was happening when. I shall try to be more careful in the future. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I like Draco a great deal too.
Anyway, great story!
Author's Response: Thats ok!
This was really brilliant, I found the end of the first paragraph extremely funny, (don't know why.) Then it sighs, and runs like hell. [br] I also loved this sentence ; Ron and Hermione sat next to him, their heads bowed together like children sharing secrets. It's a wonderful simile. Another simile i loved was: It shook unsteadily before melting away like a card house. [br] You're a very talented writer, and I love the idea of this story. You've got both Harry and Draco in character, I love Draco's evilness! (I know he's actually good in your story but still...) Fabulous! Fantastic! Brilliant! Magnificent! Superb! I think you get my drift! :) [br] Also, it's good you didn't reveal what the last horcrux was, it's fun to guess but I like not knowing.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. The runs like hell bit is my favorite part as well, it actually was the line that inspired the whole story. To be honest, I'm not sure what the last horcurx is either, probably the locket based on size...
This was a very interesting story and you have kept both, Draco and Harry well in character. Especially, Draco. I think too if he would denounce Voldemort, he wouldn't stop being a Slytherin and certainly he is not born to be a hero. A very enjoyable read.
Author's Response: Thank you, I really enjoy Draco's character and wouldn't want him to change too much either.
