Awww don't be mean to Hermione
Author's Response: That was not Hermione... that was some random kid... but most reviewers thought it was, so who am I to argue? But Draco is a nasty little tyke.
OK, so first of all, the bat smilies mentioned in the first paragraph of my last review were deleted. So, here they are: < (-_-) > < ^_^ >
Gleep! I didn't mean to rub it in! *is terribly terribly sorry*
Very good fic. :) (No spam, remember?)
Author's Response: Aw, they're adorable! I'm glad you liked the story!
Well, it's high time that I read this. Especially with Halloween coming on Wednesday and all. [/weird bat smilies]
ANYWAY. I loved the ending. So sad. And yet so cool that you show how impressionable young minds are moulded depending on their environment and parents.
Also, as I have nothing better to do than read the old reviews, I do think that sounded a lot like Hermione, and I was actually quite surprised at the fact that it's meant to be your sister.
0_0 5'2"? And I thought that I was short! (I'm fourteen and just barely 5'4". More like 5'3.75" but that's too long to say.)
I do like this quite a lot. Great job, Schmergo! (Incidentially, an anagram of "Schmergo" is "Ogermschs." An anagram of "Katie" is "Atkie.")
P.S. So sorry about PP. I don't know what to tell you if the mods are nitpicking the plot... maybe email the mod rejecting you and explain that it's all relevant?
P.P.S. I'm being a "Renessaince Witch" (not a scary one) for Halloween. Woot?
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I had lots of fun with this story... it couldn't be Hermione, because how would Draco know she was a Mudblood as opposed to a Muggle-born? *Shrugs*
WAY TO RUB IT IN, KATIE! ^_^ I am actually five foot two and a *half*. That is very important to me.
draco you little meanie poo! that was terrible of you! GReat job!
Author's Response: Hahahaha, it sounds like you're encouraging Draco for being terrible. Thanks, though!
This is so... real. It's hard to see what Draco was, once upon a time. Back when he may have believed in once upon a time. Back when he could have done anything, been anyone. Then his life changed forever.
The saddest part of it, is the implication that Draco is not the first. That might just be me seeing things that aren't there (and believe me, that's happened a lot), but it seems that you're telling another story in the background, one about his mother or his father, one Halloween, hiding from a scary costume, wanting candy from a Muggleborn house, watching their mother or their father wide-eyed, soaking in every bigoted word. The spiral into prejudice continues here, and nothing can stop its descent.
Great story, Schmergo. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much for your lovely review, Sam! And no, you weren't reading too much into it-- I wanted to get the idea that Narcissa was carrying on sort of a family tradition.
I wrote this for Coppercurls, who wanted a one-shot about "A very in-character Draco," and somehow this spawned from it!
lol! loved this story. Draco was so cute. :D
Author's Response: Too bad he couldn't stay that way. :(
Aw...very cute,even though its mean,but cute!
Author's Response: Thanks! That's Draco in a nutshell... mean but cute! ^_^
aww... poor girl. and damn Narcissa for poisoning her son *glares into mid air*
Author's Response: Yeah, I know! Draco would be so cool if he was raised right! *Is a bit delusional*
Haha. This is reasonably amusing I guess. I really think this would be quite accurate. I suppose the girl was like Hermione...but the whole "A very pretty girl" kind of killed it seeing as Hermione is rarely described as pretty. 9/10. I jsut realized how strange it is when regular people read my reviews to your stories. They probably wonder what this box is.
Author's Response: She's not Hermione, dude. She's technically my little sister. The idea is that her parents are Muggle-born. In retrospect, I should have given her, like, blond hair so no one would think she was Hermione.
nice... by the way who was the girl?
Author's Response: Thanks! The girl was a random girl... technically my little sister, but no one need know that!
ooh, so this would explain it...this is actuall quite a good one-shot, it may be short but it explains a lot!!
you should make like a series of Draco when he was young explaining why he's such a vile person...i hope u do!!
Author's Response: Oooh, that would be fun! Especially since I'm starting to like writing about Draco more and more lately...this story really put me on a Draco-writing kick, even though I've never much liked him as a canon character.
Oh, wow. That's exactly how kids learn to live and stuff. From what their parents say. This was very, very well written. (I'm hoping the little girl wasn't meant to be Hermione?)
Author's Response: *Does a happy dance* Aww, thanks! I'm so glad you liked it. (The girl's not Hermione. Technically, she's my little sister!)
Ridiculous! (I'm talking about the characters, not the story!)
The Malfoy's are so stuck up! Family really does affect a person. Obviously. Malfoy was raised to believe what he believes...Forum talk! Not review talk!
How did Malfoy know the girl at the door was a "Mudblood" and why do they call muggles mudbloods? O.o
Really awsome story! (as always) I happen to notice that the people who seem to not like your stories always favorite you and the story. O.o 'Tis silly!
Author's Response: Why zank you! Draco knows the girl was a Mudblood because... I guess this wasn't clear in the story, but both of her parents are Muggle-born wizards. He knows she's one because she asked why their house doesn't have any decorations, and she pointed up at hers and said it had lots of decorations, but it was the one where his parents said Mudbloods lived. Sorry it was so conf00sing.
that darn Draco. darn Narcissia! good story! i like it! :D :P
Author's Response: Thanks! This is one of my favourite pieces, in my opinion.
And so begins the reputation of the fabulous*coughcough* Draco Malfoy..
Haha i am also a fangirl of Draco and all the Malfoys. This was a wonderful story and I'm about to read all of the rest. =]
Author's Response: Hehehe, yep! I do love the Malfoys. Thanks for the feedback.
Poor little kid. (I'd give her some candy) Great story.
Author's Response: Double postage?
Poor little kid. (I'd give her some candy) Great story.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Hehe-- this is very good. I like the childish side of Draco's personality. I'd like to think that he wasn't always evil, right? Anyway, good job. =D
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, I always got the idea that Draco's personality was molded by his parents.
Schmergo, that was so cute and insightful! I enjoyed it. :) And, I laughed when the little girl started babbling. I have known too many "articulate" little children, i think...
Author's Response: I'm very glad you liked it! And the little girl at the end is my little sister, stuck into the story...
Author's Response: Why, thank you! Yes, Draco was rather adorable, wasn't he? Too bad he couldn't stay like that...
