Another greast story Nicole. I liked this one alot. I have read about three of these "Green Dragon" tales and this one is just as great.
Draco dieing at the end really shocked me! It was unexpected even though Draco knew all along it would come.
You descriptions were once again amazing. You don't tell a story, you bring your reader into it with every word.
Oh my God! You killed Draco! It's, of course, a logical thing to do for Voldemort, but still! The poor boy! Your idea for the challenge was pretty good! Giving a moment of peace to Draco before he has to face his faith and assume his actions was brilliant. You seem to know exactly what to do with Draco; the way he speaks to the bartender, we can feel his usual arrogance. I liked your descriptions too, this dessert Draco ate must be sooo good! :P
It's interesting to think that in the past, Dumbledore found himself completely lost too and came across the Green Dragon. Even great wizards have their moments of despair... Good job Nicole! You did justice to the challenge prompt! I'm giving you two thumbs up!
Author's Response: *giggles* Viv, if you are not a member of SPEW, you should give it a go. I loved your review! Thank you for your kind words. When I saw the first (two) sentences, it was like a South Park flashback, hehe. (OMG, they killed Kenny!) And yes, I was fairly certain that even though he comes off as all knowing, even the great Dumbledore must have had times where he just needed to think and gain insight from someone from the outside. As far as Draco, I have been trying desperately to write him as canon as possible for things like this so I am glad that he came off to you in that manner. Thank you for your lovely review! ~Nicole
Well you know I thought this was an awesome as story when I got to beta it, but I'll say it again for fun:
THAT WAS AWESOME!!!
Lol, Well done and I think my favourite was the ending; sad, but beautifully written.
Author's Response: *grins* Thanks Abbi. And thanks again for looking it over for me. I appreciated your insight. ~Nicole
oh "ken", nice nickname ^_^
sad ending, but very brave of poor draco. he's now no longer 'on the run'.nicely tied up, nicole. and that bit about sharing recipes is charming. like souvenirs from every visitor that had wandered into the Green Dragon. gotta get my hands on that pot roast receipe, hmm...^_^
Author's Response: The pot roast recipe I don't actually have to give out. The other two... I can get those to anyone who asks! They're both family recipes. I'm glad you liked how the story worked out. Thanks for dropping in! ~ Nicole
I could see the 7th book taking off in this fashion. I feel for Draco.
Awww, cool ending. I didn't see that coming, I thought he was going to the Order. Although, I realize the part about Dumebledore's philosophy on death was foreshadowing now.
This was my favorite chapter and I particularly liked the mention of Andromeda. Well done, Nicole.
Cute. I like your Blenkinsop Waterbut. Good call on shortening his name. I wish I had thought of that. Anyway, your story is very interesting. Good job!
Well done, Nicole. I liked Draco's thought process, although I was sad to see him run away from Severus. He owed Severus a lot more than a few good wishes. But the story was wonderful.
I really loved Draco's thoughts about his father. I think this was my favorite part. However, I noticed that you refered to the Dementors here and they are no longer at Azkaban. They left sometime in book five, I think it was.
Anyway, wonderful start and good luck with the challenge.
Author's Response: Excellent point about Severus. I'm sorry I didn't think of that. Maybe if I rewrite it after the challenge, I can fix that as it does make sense to have some sort of dialogue to explain the way I left them. *facedesk* ::trying to remember where I mentioned Dementors:: Ah, with Lucius. *nuts.*
I love it!! please update soon!
Author's Response: *squee* I am glad you are enjoying the story and I appreciate the review. I will update as soon as I can, I promise!
hey, great start, update soon please!
