This is for Quodpod Match 2!
I was in an Action/Adventure mood when I first decided to read this fic, but I quickly was caputred by the tension and suspense of the story, too!
When you first mention Tarazed, I was pulled further into the story. At first, I thought, "Surely he can't be worse than Greyback." But Draco's narration convinced me otherwise... especially when he reveals what happened to his mother. It's hard to imagine her being gone so soon after the Second War. Immediately, I felt sympathy for poor Draco.
Also, Mitty's lack of appearance... I feared the wrost, and then I was proven correct. Noooo!
Draco: I think you write him really well. He's such a complex character, and you capture his humanity. I like the hold Harry still has over him, even if Draco refuses to acknowledge that. I also like how he tries to avoid the Aurors when he contacts the Ministry's help.
Luna: I love this description of Luna: just because she seemed to have shown up somewhere completely by accident didn't by any account mean she actually did. This is great characterization of her, and how I imagine her to be post-Hogwarts. Also, I feel like she's one who could see past Draco's murky past to see how intelligent he is and how much he wants to love and be loved, and that's why I think they work as a couple for this moment and time in their lives.
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this pairing at first. But their interactions with each other are within canon. It's such a pleasant twist on things! But I squealed when Rolf makes an appearance (and you wrote Draco's immense jealousy well, too). Somehow, I always imagined Rolf to be older than Luna, but I like how you have him slightly younger. It was a great scene for those two to meet--Poor Draco!!
What gave you the idea for the fic? I love all of the elements here! Great work.
