I love your writing style. It has an air about it, makes it seem like you're there somehow. Great job!

****UPDATE**** 7/31/08 Chapter Five just submitted :) ********
7/30/2011 Years later I'm finally getting ready to update this story. I've re-written this chapter five times so far now. Chapters 5 and 6 sort of blend together, I'm trying to pick a good separation point. Chapter 5 is less Draco. Chapter 6 is ALL Draco. Thanks to anyone who has stuck with this story.
CHAPTER FIVE IS VALIDATED AND UP! :D Reviews are appreciated.
I love it! I can't to read more! I love the way you have Melanie and Draco as friends, but Melanie not being submissive like I've seen others do. It's great so far!
Author's Response: Thank you :) I just submitted chapter 3 moments ago. It\'s a little different, to say the least. I had to up the rating and add in two more warnings. I really tried not to make Melanie submissive and the only thing that kept me from making her like that was thinking \'How would I act in that situation?\'...lol. So, I\'m glad you like it! :) **Emma
