Well, hello. This is my little author page thingy. Basically I love to write-incase you didn't know that already-and I really like anything fantasy.
I am currently in grade 11 with-as my friends have told me-no life what so ever. I do love acting and singing though. If I can not become a writer, I'll be a broadway star. Or are those two dreams switched? n_n
Perfection: as the title says...no real date set for the posting of the first chapter as there are many kinks that I still need to iron out. :]

This is my first review for your amazing story. I must admit, I was rather hesitant at first. I didn't want to seem like another overeager fan or worse, illiterate. But after only a few chapters, I was hooked. Your style of writing is so good...it's like taking a person by the nose, tugging them along. I like it. I really like it. But on to the story! I am not the biggest fan for D/H romances. Yet, I was drawn toward this section. One of my favorite songs is called, "A Thousand Words". Your title caught me. So, I read. Draco's characterization is on the mark. I could literally hear him speaking those words and thinking those thoughts. Hermionie's the same. It made me really sad to see Ron and Hermionie's lapse into friends. I'm sure Ron will be devistated... I rate this a 10/10. Oh, and please write fast!
Well, well, well, it seems there is more to the cold boy on Expecto P. than I first though. Quite interesting.
I must agree with Quill, you're quite good at bringing your reader in contact with your character and showing them exactly who they are. Your style is similar to taking the reader by the hand and saying, "Come on, just read it. Come on." Kudos.
I was quite dissapointed that you didn't have a second chapter up! I was already to read more about Mercado's adventures...I urge you to write more! You have such a facinating character here...
I know that I'll be seeing more of you soon. Feel free to tell me when you have the new chapter up. I know that I'll look forward to reading and commenting on it! Think of me as...your unofficial official beta-ish reader.

Author's Response: Lol, yes... the pureblood murdering beep, I believe Mecardo called dear Draco one time... or something similar. Lol. Thankyou. But Draco (sorry I'm using your EP name), when will you learn to spell Meccy's name? Lol. When my next chapter gets accepted, you'll know... I'll put it in my sig in EP! :D Thankyou!
Oh-maaah-geeeeze! Talk about love at first read! I loved the reference to the Greek (Roman?) mythological story and it fit in very well. I only wish you had played on it a bit more. Perhaps you could have included a bit of the myth in the beginning and in the end in quotes...? There is really nothing that I would change in this story. Regulus has never really been one of my favorite characters, I've not known enough about him to really muse over this motives, but because of this beautiful little piece of writing, I see him in a different light. I'm glad that I read this... :]
You have a nice balance between the long, descriptive paragraphs and the short/dialogue paragraphs. The story has a flow to it, which I accredit to your lavish descriptions.
Also, I liked that you used the present tense. That is a rare thing these days and in this story it just seemed to fit. Very very nice. :]
Bottom line: lovelovelove.
