Chapter: I'll Try

Oh, wow. Oh. Wow. That. . . is just astounding. . .

*yells 'go Draco!'* I always knew he was an amazing person. . . deep down. Every time he'd do something evil, I'd be like 'He has to, he's a pureblood, and Slytherin. . . he's not actually bad. . .'

This story is completely perfect to me, because Draco overcomes his confusion, and all the things he's been taught. . . and he breaks out. *sniff* Kinda like Sirius, I just realized! I mean, Sirius just dumped everything his parents had told him was what you do by the side of the road and ran off down the right path. . . kinda like Draco, except Draco took a little longer. Which makes it all the more amazing, in my humble opinion.

Anyway, thank you again for another terrific story!

Author's Response: :D I wrote this *just* post HBP, cause the entire time after he tried killing Dumbledore. I was sitting there going "He couldn't do it. He couldn't do it. He's a good guy!" I'm glad you liked it!

That was well-written. I usually don't like a redeemed Draco but yours I don't mind so much. : )

Wow, that was a great story!

My favorite thing about this was Draco’s characterization. He can be an extremely hard character to pull off, but I think you did it really well. His thoughts are really powerful sometimes, but they don’t seem like something he wouldn’t say. I really tried, but nothing was there to help me. Words can only do so much. That line in particular had a huge impact on me as a reader. I really began to feel sorry for Draco, and all of his struggling.

Another great thing is that you gave reason behind the little events, like why he hated Harry, and why he would try to kill Dumbledore, which added depth to his character. Draco’s progression throughout the story was another thing I loved. First he’s blinded by the views forced on him, and then he finally realizes that he needed to turn from the Dark Arts. You did this in a believable way, and didn’t just let Draco change all at once. And the ending line was so powerful. It concluded the story, but it left room for the reader to imagine what Draco will do now.

I also thought the lyrics were a great addition to the story. Sometimes, I think that the lyrics in a songfic take away from the flow, but that wasn’t the case this time. The song really fit with everything that Draco was feeling, and added to the fic as a whole. The place where you put the lyrics “My whole world is changing, I don't know where to turn,” fit extremely well!

Great job! :D

Author's Response: Ooh! Thanks Melissa! I'm glad you liked the fic. Well, I think (if I remember correctly) I started writing the fic because I was really confused about draco, and why he would do all the hard work, and stop at the last moment...So I'm glad I conveyed what I felt! Thanks again for the review!

My reviews aren't going through. :( But I'm so honored that this is dedicated to me! :D Thank you so much.

I liked the softer side of Draco you portrayed - it makes me feel like war has worn down his whiny, sarcastic side, and now he's just TIRED.

Very touching. I would have loved more detail on him going off to face the Dark Lord. But Jesse's voice and the song lyrics fit this story perfectly.

Great job! Thank you again for dedicating it to me! I'm sorry it took me so long to review, but know that it means a lot to me! -hugs-
