A wonderful story. It really shows a different side of Pansy, and that not all Slytherin purebloods think Muggles are worthless.

I love good, deep character studies that follow sound logic, based enough in reality to make the story ring really true. You know your subject matter and it really comes across.

Pansy's dislike of insecurity and inability to tolerate it in herself, her determine self-confidence was touching and enlightening. It's interesting that a pureblood family was desperate enough to seek Muggle psychiatric help. I could almost imagine the most radical families locking a family member in the attic first.

The Muggle psychiatrist brings to mind so many other questions. Would he have been put on modern drugs? Wizard on Prozac? Of course I don't know the standard drug therapy for BDD.

I have a couple of quibbles for you. Quibble the first: when you start the flashback, the glass in brackets feels too technical for the situation, more like something you'd see in a news article than in a string of prose.

Quibble the second: Pansy couldn't quite remember how to pronounce psychiatrist, but she knew the exact diagnosis the Muggles gave her father and had read enough to be somewhat fluent on the topic. The two things seemed incongruous to me. She's either pretty familiar with Muggle psychiatry or not, you know?

Overall, this was clean, and fun to read. It provoked a lot of questions. Lovely job.

Cool story. I've never actually heard of that disorder, but it really seems like it would be hard for someone to live with a loved one who had that... I mean, someone who is too insecure to function, like Pansy says... Poor Pansy, her mother and (especially!) her father!
I also like how Pansy stays in character, and how she seems to develope a bit, by thinking about her memory and about her heritage... I really enjoyed reading this story!

wow, i really liked that. i'v never read a story about pansy before, and i loved how you pulled so much out of her. what you wrote about seems like it actually could be true, which is the sign of having real talent. great job*
