Hehe, I started this, expecting some lurid Percy sex, which I assure you would have scarred me. I am so happy the story ended the way it did.
I love the character you built for Daphne. She's sharp as a tack and the details are never lost on her. I rather agree that she is like Percy, only regarding different aspects of her personality.The fact that he was practically bullied into swapping escort services for hated family functions was wonderful.
I think the biggest win for this fic was that each moment I spent wiht them, the more I believed in their canon-ness (in which Jess makes up a word). Percy was perfect, and I like your version of Daphne.
Anywho, ta for now. We'll meet again. I have a funny feeling that it'll happen. Odd, n'est-ce pas?
Author's Response: O.o Yeah, I think writing that would have scarred me! You've reminded me how much fun I had with Daphne though - I think I need to write her again. I wanted her to be definably Slytherin, but yet not unlikeable, and so she turned into this sparky little whirlwind, who speaks her mind and gets her own way, but hopefully endearingly so, and who is just a little morally ambiguous rather than in any way dark. I rather thought she'd be good for Percy too in the way she lightened him up and ran rings around him. I'm kind of fond of the lightheartedness of this fic, because I don't go there often so it was a nice little break to write what really boils down to being in the direction of a romcom. Thanks, of course, love.
This was really lovely and beautifully done
