Chapter: Chapter 1

I really loved reading your backstory on Pansy. While reading the books we forget tht the other "bad" characters hv their own challenges in life. Your perception on pansy really explained her character well and molded with the descriptions in the books too. I can completely imagine her being confused about her identity because many pureblood children were almost brainwashed about the whole blood status thing. Great story...I can't wait to read more of ur wrk!

Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! I am in complete agreement with you, we have a very limited perception of the bad characters, as they're not explored fully, say like Harry or Ron. So what they will do in situations is something that can't be predicted about them, which why I loved writing this because it allows you to really explore with the character. Lauren :)

I really like this characterization of Pansy, because we, as fans, treat her rather mercilessly for trying to sell out Harry; even JKR is guilty of bastardizing the Slytherins to us by only outlining all of their mistakes.

It's easy to see how Pansy could be the way she was in the books with a beast of a mother like that. It makes a lot of sense, at least to me, that she would radiate these qualities, no matter how much she hated her mum. In a way, you actually characterized her mother as much as you did Pansy, but that works very well here, because in essence, Pansy started out like her mother until she took a good look into the mirror and realized that she was exactly what she hated in her mother. It's just a shame it took so long for her to notice.

I can see how Pansy could care for Draco, because I imagine he was only a mean little git to non-Slytherins, so he was most likely pretty good to her. She should have known, though, that the Dark Mark on his arm would spell the end for them as a couple, but truthfully, she's probably so worried about keeping up appearances that she didn't really stop to think about it until it was too late.

Well, anyhow, I really like this piece, and I hope Teacher gives you a gold star. Good luck! :)

Take care and happy writing,

I was sure that Mother could hear me, and this made ___ cry even more,

Missing a 'me,' I assume.


She nodded. "I still don't understand...it is hideous," she" said rudely.

Author's Response: Well i'm glad that you took to my characterization of Pansy, it was a worry because we know so little about her. You really seemed to get what i was trying to portray, especially the Draco situation. I'm glad that you enjoyed it, and thank you for your comment- believe it or not the comments are the best bit. Lauren :)
