WOW. These challenges have certainly brought out the best i people, and with my read and review policy, i thought i should just say, you have certainly set a standard for the rest of us! This is an original idea, one i certainly did not expect, not in the least from Draco malfoy. Well done.

I have seen you writing for many months now, skarmy, and I think this is your best work to date. A lot of your other work comes off masterful but strained. I suppose that is what happens when you have to organize an expansive plot and keep things in order. It is not always easy. One-shots suit you well, that is for certain. The entire symbolism at the end was great, highlighted by the scarf. I know the scarf is not the only part of it, but it is the best one, I believe.

I really liked this fic, and not just because I have a large soft spot for Draco, either. You captured the personalities of the characters very well, and the whole Slytherin scarf thing was wonderful. Great job, and merry christmas!

I liked it. Alot. I especially liked what you did with the slytherin scarf and how you kept mentioning it, it added something to the whole reading experience...=)....

Narcissa was well-done too. Draco, of course, seemed very confused and I like the way you did that. I mean ok he's different from his father, but he wouldn't be able to kill Lucius without some sort of emtional loss, which you showed quite nicely. Anyways well have a nice writing style and I look forward to reading more of your fics...=)

Author's Response: Thanks! I actually like the way this one turned out. I think it is clearly my favorite piece written and that is saying something. I've written more fanfics than just Warm-Blooded Serpents on a Cold Night, but that is currently the only one uploaded here. I just finished and submitted a fanfic for Challenge #3, but I still don't think it is as good as this. Eventually I'll edit my novel length fanfic and submit it here, but that is a lot of work and all. Plus, that is a different style of writing. With the nove length I am unable to focus on in-depth emotions and thoughts as well as I am in one-shots. Hopefully I'll write some more one-shots in the future. Thanks for reviewing.
