Yay. I can finally review this now that the challenge is over!
It's been a long time since I've read anything that sets the mood so well as you do in this fic. Your writing style is really good. Also, I love the characterization of Draco and how you show his growing panic and fear.
I thought the whole "I am the primordial scream etc" bit was going a teensy bit too far, but then again maybe that's just because it reminded me of a horror movie/book and I don't like those too much.
The ending was really well-done and I liked the line "Next time I tell you something, just assume that and add half an hour." lol.
Thanks for the great read!
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review! I know what you mean about the "I am" lines but I wanted the bogeyman to be slightly ludicrous to help make Draco get over his fears. If he can't realize that they are unreasonable, then he can't help himself. I also liked the half hour line- I had to put snarky Draco in there somewhere. (Its the best part of his character!) Anyway, thanks again!
hahaha, very nice story. =) I have two questions though, what are they trying to get and what is he doing it for? Just curious! Great story btw!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm not exactly sure what he is trying to get- probably a horcrux- for the Order of the Phoenix (yes, he did join Harry). I had hoped to find out what it was, but he ran out of time so it will have to be revealed on a different day I'm afraid. Anyway, thanks again!
