Chapter: Draco's Journey

Oooo...Dark stuff! Very nicely written and probably not just fitting for Draco.
Next up on the to read list: Shrouds.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I think this is my favourite poem of mine on the archives so I'm pleased you liked it.I was certainly on a Draco redemption kick when I wrote it. Hope you enjoy Shrouds. I think it divides people, somewhat, but I was pleased with my story and plotting. ~Carole~

Mm, Carole you are getting so good at writing Draco! Shrouds is great for you, and I have a feeling it will soon become one of your biggest hits. I do need to get back on reading that one ... this is the first review I have written in a while actually. (Implies that you should feel special ;D)

I thought this was super. Man, next year I will have so much stuff to submit for the QSQs. I discovered this site a tiny tad too late. I believe I got my account on 8/12. Just missed it. And I just recently got my beta forum account ... enough with the random rambling.

Carole, you fit so much emotion and so much of Draco's life into a tiny poem like a haiku! Like really, I'm no poet in the slightest, but you did an amazing job! Your writing is simply fabulous and I love reading it.


Author's Response: Thank you, Megan. In the end, I enjoyed writing this but it was a struggle for a while because haikus are so darn difficult. Draco leapt out at me as soon as I saw the prompt, but I do seem to have him on my mind. ~Carole~

Oooh, dark! Did you write this with Shrouds in mind? It seems like it could be. I am amazed at how both you and Natalie have imparted such great drama through such short, simple haikus. I especially like the contrast between heat in the first stanza and cold in the second. After reading it several times, I could pinpoint each stanza to its reference in Draco's life. It's very subtle and well done. Nice job and good luck in the triathalon! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Thank you. I did have shrouds in mind. Draco's story is fascinating me with the possibilities of redemption. These were hard to write because it's a form of poetry I've never attempted, but once I started, I enjoyed it. Thanks again. ~Carole~

MMMM! I really think these haikus were perfect: they have vivid imagery, and contradicting thoughts. They also go hand in hand with Shrouds ;). Did you have that on your mind while doing this?

My favourite:
Time heals the wounds.
The past blurs and seeds renew.
Darkness never dies.

Great one, Carole, and good luck with the challenge.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I guess I have Shrouds and Draco on my mind. He does seem to be featuring in a few things at the moment. It was the books, though, watching him turn from the cocky wannabee Death Eater into a wreck that didn't really want to identify Harry that got me thinking. Plus there's a reconciliation - of sorts - in the epilogue. (Hmm, why am I using this response to think about Draco so much - ha ha) thank you ~Carole~

I like it! All the darkness and burning - good description of Draco's life. And that even though time heals wounds the darkness is always there. Nice job! Debbie

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I see Draco suffering after the war which he deserves ... just a little bit. ~Carole~
