Aw, that was so bashfull at the end there. This was great, just what i needed to get my mind off another fic that i got half way through only to realise it wasn't completed and now I've got to wait for the next bit. I love one shots. Isn't it weird how the annoying, arrogant, persistant boys always end up with the girl while the quiet bookish types end up being your best friend? This fic reminded me of Lily and James a bit, not that Lily would've given in and kissed James I don't think. Anyway, I love how Malfoy was so irritating. Great cheer-me-up fic.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! :D That was excatly what I was aiming for with this fic!
aaaaaaaawwwwwwww. Finally, some happiness for Draco that does not involve harry not being with Ginny, or Ron not being with hermione. Very nicely written, great job!!!! :)
Author's Response: thanks so much!
I really liked this. Susan/Draco is an odd pairing, but I think you pulled it off nicely.
I loved how Susan and Draco were kept in character for most of it. I hate reading about fluffy, romantic Draco. I liked that Draco was still his sacastic, bullying self. It sounds Draco-ish for him to sit down and taunt Susan. The only thing is I don't think Draco would go so far when tanuting Susan. I didn't really mind that, though, because it worked with the story. Susan, I felt, was perfect in terms of her characterization. She was tough, very much like her aunt Amelia. I loved how she apologized to Draco about the comment about his father. It really brought out the Hufflepuff in her.
I loved the kiss in the library. It was so awkward and clumsy; it fit the scene perfectly. The second, in the hallway, was a lot less awkward; it was very romantic.
I liked how even after Draco kissed Susan, he could still be his sacastic self. I liked his apology; Draco isn't the type to outright admit he is wrong. I also like Susan's reaction to it all. She is so uncertain of what to think of Draco. It makes sense that she would struggle with the kiss, considering that she grew up hating the Malfoys.
I really liked it overall. I thought that Draco and Susan were both IC, and the romance was nice and not overdone. Good job!
Author's Response: Wow. Thanks! I hardly know what to say after such a nice, perfect review except- you rock and thanks!
Aww, that was too cute!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
Awww, I loved it!
I'm normally not a fan of Draco but I thought you pulled it off fantastically! You've characterised him so well, I'm impressed! He was different to what we're used to but in a good way because he wasn't seeming OC to me!
Secondly, I thought Susan was written really well. We don't know a lot about her at all and yet I felt like I knew her forever!
I thought the plot ran very smoothly and was wonderful. It was fantastically canon-like and it was just great. I really liked the way you had structured it, it was wonderful.
As for critique I should probably give you; I got none, unless you count censoring which I don't think was nessary as you had a warning at the start of the story and it fitted in well.
Great job, I enjoyed every moment of it and I hope to see lots more from you!
Author's Response: Thank you, thank you, thank, thank you! That is so kind! I've been so worried about my characterisation of Draco, this is so good to hear! Your rock! -Nora :D
Hm, interesting. I've never read a Draco/Susan fic before! Although this was very good. When is this taking place, may I ask? I really like Susan standing up to him and yelling at him. It's a great touch.
However, despite how much I enjoyed it, there is one thing that I have a problem with. There aren't that many, but there are a few grammatical errors. Such as "you're" when it should be "your." Obviously there are not too many, or it would not have made it through the queue, but I suggest getting a beta or just someone to read over it and let you know if there are any grammar errors. But besides from that, I love it : )

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad that you liked it! I I'm sorry about the grammar errors, I know how irritating they can be. I'll have a beta look over my stuff next time :) This is taking place during Christmas hols in seventh year. I chose 7th, because then Susan has a good reason to be really fed up with Draco, and it leaves a lot more open. Thanks again!!
That was great! Really! I applaud you! That is totally something I can actually see Draco doing. Applause for Gemma Hawk!
Author's Response: *squeeness* I'm so happy that I finally got Draco in character!! Thank you! You just brightened my day :)
Darn! I really wish you'd continue this! But it was very good, and well written...I've never thought of this pairing before, but it makes sense to me!
Author's Response: Continue this? I doubt it, but thatnks though! Thanks for your review, and I'm glad to see that someone else seems to believe in my OTP!
