I just loved the plot! Of all people who wouldn't know what to do in Muggledom ... Draco Malfoy! I so enjoyed reading your first few chapters ... will there be more? There are so many places you could take this. Very well done.
Aw, poor Draco. Your story is lovely and I do hope you continue it. I have never seen this kind of idea before and am glad to have come across it. Every chapter is brilliant and I hope to read more of it soon! Please update it again!
Author's Response: Well, I try to give all my stories equal attention, but I admit this story has been a bit neglected. Hopefully my life will become a lot duller soon and give me more oppurtunity to write.
I love this story, but when are you going to update? Please, please, update soon!
Author's Response: I hope so too!
Okay...Awesome beginning, of course, but this doesn't really sound very humor fiction-ey...I'm sure it wil., though.
Author's Response: Well, this story was adopted, and one of the conditions was to make this a dark comedy, so it really isn't meant to be a really 'laugh out loud' funny story. Besides, it is somewhat hard to make a story about being disowned funny. But hopefully now that that part of the story is over, it will start to get funnier, especially now that Draco is blending into the Muggle world.
Awesome story! Update soon!!
Author's Response: I hope soon, especially since now is the point in the story where it should start to get funny.
i really like it and cant wait till last cptr come out but i thought it was supposed to be funny
Author's Response: Well, this story was meant to be a dark comedy, so it will be sad for a bit before it gets funny. It is very hard to make being disowned funny. But now that all this over, you will be seeing more humor. And I was hoping that this last chapter was at least a little bit funny.
oh no!! i feel so sorry for Draco! its like banishment!! i can see this becoming quite a comical little story...and i like the writing style! keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Yes, the story has not really been living up to it's genre up until now. I hope it can start being funny now.
I really like this story! It's interesting to see Draco in the Muggle world! I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm glad you're liking it, and I hope you will continue to read my future chapters when I get around to writing them.
I liked the part when Draco falls on the train!Also when he cursed the machine!
Author's Response: Yes, that was a lot of fun! Not for Draco, of course!
=D that was hilarious! "Give me a bloody ticket you damned contraption!" ahahahahahahahahahaaaa!!!
Author's Response: Yes, that was indeed very much fun to write. The next few will be even more fun I think!
it's very well written and I love the concept. =)
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it and I also hope you will continue to read further chapters.
This is great! You got Draco and his family exactly; I love your style, too.
Author's Response: I'm glad you love it. I hope you will continue to read.
Let be honest: I had lost the interst in HP fanfiction and the only story I were reading was a favorite of mine, because I still get a mail when it is updated - but today I strumbled across your story and I have seen you on the Betaforums so I knew you were a person with a lot of opnions so I thought I want to give your story a try. Especially because I thought the story it self sounded excting.
So now back to the review: I thought this is great story so far. I love the story idea it is very unique and orginal. Your choice for the title is also good because it makes you as a reader - be courious.
I loved this chapter I felt sorry for Draco. Your charactizon (Damm my spelling) of Draco is wonerful - very in in - character. I liked the girl with a balloon. Oh about the tricket thing I have never tried to get a tricket thing myself so I could complety see myself in Draco's place. ;)
What I love about your story is your style of writing. You are very good at describering things, you makes one feel, you are there etc.
So I am looking forward to the next chapter,
And thanks for giving my interst in HP fanfiction back.
Author's Response: Wow! What high praise! I hope I can continue to keep your interest.
If he hadn't been a nasty git, I'd feel sorry for him. What interests me is just how he'll survive in the "Muggle" world. Just what changes will happen? What will he do for a living? Now that's a strange concept, Draco actually doing manual work.. I wonder how long it will be untill he starts to actually respects someone in the Non-Magical World? Please don't make us wait soo long.
Author's Response: Oh, I hope you do continue to read. I also hope I will have the inspiration to write the rest of this story much faster.
haha! i really like this story and you do a very good job describing the muggle objects through the eyes of a wizard. i love the littlle girl with the balloon! i hope she comes back! gr8 job and please update soon!
Author's Response: Well, I hope you will continue to read, and hopefully the next chapters will come a lot faster.
Poor Draco... as if the subway system wasn't confusing enough!
Author's Response: Yes, I've only been on a subway once (in Washington D.C.) and it was pure torture!
This was great! It's such a unique idea for a story. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it, and I'm happy this story has become so popular. I suppose I should also hurry up and finish the next chapter, huh?
Oh. My. Godric. I don't think I've ever read faster-- had this been in print, the pages would have been flying in my attempt to get to the next word. Molly, doll, how come I've never wandered across your author page? Seriously?! I feel like I've lost a bit of myself without having this kind of FANFREAKINGTASTIC writing in my life.
I mean just look at your adjectives! Not a boring one in sight! Every word makes the scene BURST in your mind; every piece of dialog makes you HEAR them, not kind-of-sort-of-can-almost-see-it -- HEAR THEM. Seriously, I've never seen frantic dialog done so masterfully. There wasn't a single place where I paused, not a sentence that read awkwardly.
There were however, an unfortunate few spelling errors:
when a potion when wrong
Reached into the cage
(You can't tell out of context, but 'reached' should be 'reaching')
So, aside from those, you conquer. Honestly. The summary for this pulled me in-- not just the way it was written, but dear Godric, I've never heard of a story like this? It's original, interesting-- it makes you HAVE to read this.
So, uhm... this review really does nothing for help, but I just can't get over how much I loved this small passage. I'm going to read the rest of this now.
Author's Response: Wow, you love to appeal to my sense of vainity! And I also suppose this is a not-so-sublet hint to get the next chapter up, right?
Wow, I really enjoyed this! It was a fascinating story line--very original. That's the kind of fics I like to read :).
Keep writing! I love this story so far!
Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying. A lot of people seem to like it. Anyway, I'm hoping to have the next chapter up soon, but Draco has been fighting me the whole way. Unlike you, he doesn't particularily like where this storyline is going.
Draco obviously doesn't realize he won't be able to find Diagon Alley and Gringotts now that he's a Squib. Maybe Arthur is going to help him get some of the Malfoy money?
Author's Response: Well, I suppose you will just have to keep reading to find out. Kind of the whole point of a story, though.
