loved your story keep up the fantastic work
I doubt too that a Slytherin would be allowed to join the DA, by I do see them as acting as a liaiason to Neville or Ginny (after some time of proving themselves).
In my own quest for story ideas (that don't quite make it to print), the idea of faking a Cruciatius curse has occured to me so naturally I think your idea was brilliant.
I do question, however why she would rescue the boy that was chained. It lacks Slytheriness.
1 Unchaining the boy would do little good as the Carrows would simply find him and punish him more. In order for this to work, she would have to get him out of Hogwarts or contact the DA so they could hide him.
2 I think a deeper motivation might be needed. It is ok that we had Astoria being a caring person (one could argue that many healers come out of Slytherin because of the snake association.) Another reason needs to be there as well --a reason for her to risk her self for others. It could be simply a desire for glory (she would have to feel that Voldemort's reigh will be short despite his power) or a desire to make connections with other people in hopes that they will help her at some future time, or there is some relative or person whose opinion means alot to her and she wishes to impress this person.
Even though she is a Slytherin, she doesn't have to be cold and calculating, just calculating.
I was a little disappointed that JKR never showed any Slytherin students do anything to oppose Voldemort.
I think you chose the proper example of what a Slytherin should be outraged about. Sisters being forced to hurt each other. It's something that Draco wouldn't initially understand as he is an only child.
i think that you did a great job of describing a decent slytherin. it really shows that not all slytherins are bad and evil. she would have been one of the slytherins that came back to fight (or did they all come back?)
I liked the way malfoy was reminded of hermoine granger when he saw astoria.
i think that astoria is a great character. she can be very kind like in meeting teddy and she can really stand up for people, like her sister, even though she sint that storong. i'd like to hear more about her.
another thing i liked in this story was the way malfoy described crabbe and goyle and their 'food preferences'
another great story!
Author's Response: Yeah, Crabbe and Goyle and their 'food preferences' was cute, but then again, it was obvious. I mean, come on, all we know about those two is that they are big, fat and constantly hungry! I'm glad you like my Astoria. Thanks for reviewing!
yes you did.
I like slytherins. i mean i would never want to BE one, but for some reason they are sort of like fasinating, because you never know what goes on with them. sort of the same with ravenclaw. hugglefluff (dif. name lol) is just not really mysterious. idk maybe its the name, or their disposition. ;] grate job, anywhoo
Author's Response: Yeah, I am quite interseted in Slytherins myself... Thanks for reviewing!
Yes you did.
Author's Response: Thanks! It's good to hear that.
