I love this story! It's very tense and fast paced through out Its smooth writing that flows easily from chapter to chapter. I really like how awkward Draco is when he tells Ginny he likes her.
One piece of advice: the dream is very well written, but it seems to almost make too much sense. Most dreams I've had make no sense at all, so maybe if the dream was a bit weirder, it would be more realistic. It was really good, though.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you liked it. :) Generally I prefer to write my dreams as abstract but in this particular piece I wanted to make it as realistic as possible, like a daydream. :)
You don't know how many times I've looked at your page to see if you'd written anything new. I don't know when you came back to this side of the world--it was probably a long time ago--but, welcome back. It seems like your vacation from MNFF made your writing better than ever. I loved this story. It seemed so true to life. How many times have we all blown a little incident out of proportion and turned it into the opposite of what it was or what we thought it was. We are so narcissistic at times, thinking that the whole world or a significant part of it is paying attention only to us. There were a couple of times I laughed out loud. This was the Liandrin I missed and know. Glad you're back and writing again.
Author's Response: I'm still alive! I just haven't been writing HP stories. I switched over to AtLA/LoK. XD But two weeks ago I got this idea for a DG one-shot and it wouldn't go away; thus, Gossip was the end result.
So, thank you so much for the review and that you're still looking for me out in the din. I'm glad you enjoyed this "little" one-shot. I have to agree that my writing has improved over the past two years and I think writing for AtLA/LoK helped with that a bit. But DG will always have a fondness in my heart. <3
