Just In
for A Black Tie Affair

Soo Bellatrix is a badass. Ollivander is a badass. Florean is a badass. The only one that's not a badass here is Draco. This is problem that needs fixing.

My favourite part was the bit where you described the wards on the shop and Bellatrix taking them down. That was pretty awesome to visualize, well done. Then again, you're usually pretty good with the magic.

Otherwise, it was a pretty short chapter! Makes me sad there wasn't more! Can't wait for the next one.

Love always,

So half-smut was half-smutty! WHAT GIVES, BROFACE?

On a related note, Daphne is a little slut. But you knew that.

Anyway, on to the point: I really enjoyed this chapter. Don't take my poking fun at it seriously; I actually really did enjoy it. Like I said, the smut was a little anti-climactic (badum-psh), but otherwise it was steamy. And also there twice, so that's a plus.

The ending was my favourite part, actually, because it's very DUN DUN DUN. I liked the exchange between Draco and Snape. Quite realistic.

Also my Snape reading voice is the best. It's the perfect blend of Joe Moses and Alan Rickman, I'd say.

SO YEAH, glad you finally posted this chapter and I finally read it! Tres magnifique! Update again soon!

Love always,

Amanda :]

Okay, I'm calm now. That was freaking awesome. So well written. Interesting to see what you did there. Very interesting indeed. Not at all how I would have imagined it. I like how everything was a dream sequence, if you catch my drift. Anyway, really great job. I'm so glad you're writing again. I loved it so much. You wrote the Dark Lord so well and Draco was flawless as ever. Can't WAIT for more!

Love always,

Well as I already told you in person, I caught the "hokey stuff like voodoo" HatP reference, and "Book of Counted Shadows" SoT reference. So, COOKIES FOR ME. OMNOMNOM.


I know you were nervous about doing an obscure and classy sex scene, but you nailed it. Pun totally intended. Awesome job =D

There were several lines that I liked in this chapter, but I've already quoted them all back to you, so no need for that here. They were great.

I'm very pleased with the direction this is taking. I can't wait to find out what happened with the Book. I also the idea that even though Draco knows it might be a trap, and he might be going to his death, he still does it. It really shows a lot about not only his character but Death Eaters in general.

I'm so glad I'm here in this creepy old house where the people are nicer.


We're so nice, come here.


Shh, just come.

I think that basically sums it up. (Ignore me; I've been really obsessed with that meme lately for some reason.)

Now, I don't know whether this is more to do with the fact that the gap between this chapter and the rest of the story was so long, or perhaps it's just actually happening, but I feel like the Draco and Daphne relationship was a little rushed. I mean, she's already expecting them to get to the "next level?" I don't know, don't you think it's a bit soon to expect that? I don't know. Up to you; your characters!

Yeah, over all, I like the way you wrote the chapter; I think it was a good way to go. The Draco/ Daphne interactions are very funny and witty, which I really like. The end was my favourite. You did a very good job in setting the mood with the way you narrated, so I was really getting into it.

Basically, the chapter rocked. Can't wait to read some more!

Much love,

Naw! I am so enjoying reading this story, every chapter seems to get more interesting than the last and I cannot wait to see where it ends up.

I also love how Daphne is the one with Draco, rather than Astoria lol Daphne doesnt get enough credit in fanfics.

This story is so lovely written, your writing style is amazing, and you portray Draco, perfectly.

Keep up the great work and hope to see chapter 8 out soon. :)

All the best!

Nicky :)

Wow, it was so...brilliant. It's nice to see there are still people out there who actually write well. Can't wait to read more!

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. Okay, I need to calm down and take this one step at a time.

First, there were some funny lines in this one. I'm sure you heard me laugh several times. I'll see if I can skim through and find them all.

"It just came out of the proverbial left field."

Proverbial left field. Honestly xD

""Of course I'll respect your daughter, sir!" he said in a loud voice, smiling.

"You better!" said Andrew, equally as loud, "or I'll flay you alive.""

This reminds me oddly of the first time you met my mother xD

Just saying.

"Hey, I'll have you know the sunny shores of Azkaban are a very popular tourist destination!"


"Date of the Damned"


"Daphne STARED at him."

Hahahahhahahahahaa. Yes.

"Here are your badges, nice man."

Oh, dear god. So good.

And yeah, I think that's it. It got pretty serious after that point. Now on to the rest of this review.


You are a pure genius. That was AMAZING. The Slipstream, the Dementors, just EVERYTHING. You did it SO WELL. And, am I egotistical in thinking that the little bit with Daphne keeping the Dementors' gloom away was a sort of almost-tribute to UA? No? Didn't notice the similarities? I did. I love it.

Anyway, point it, this was beyond amazing. Fantastic job.

Love always,

It's about time Narcissa gained some backbone, even if it was very short-lived. What a pansy. xD

As for the Snape/ Draco thing, it was very interesting. Very interesting indeed. I didn't imagine things happening this way. I'm very intrigued.

His train of thought in this chapter is very interesting to follow, because I can see him slowly wanting - not just having to - become what he will become. I can see him beginning to understand that he's important and that he alone can do this. Etc. You get my point.

I very much enjoyed this. Great job, as usual

Love always,

It's interesting that you had it happen that way. Very interesting indeed. And also extremely clever with the staged abduction and whatnot. The memory projection wasn't canon, obviously, but it sounded probable. So good one on that for making it realistic.

And also, I think a new banner with the tagline "Join them or die" is in order. NAILED IT. Love that you did it. Things can only go downhill from here for our dear Draco.

...she said, as if not already knowing what happens.

But still, great stuff! Eagerly awaiting the next one!

Love always,

Have I ever mentioned how much I love this story? I really love canon stories because they have a more believable element to them. And then when a good writer (like ourself) writes a good story it just makes the story 150% more enjoyable for me, at least! Thank You for writing and updating this story and I hope you continue on with this story because believe it or not, It's really amazing!

5/17/2010 c4 7medievalruins
Fucking YES.


Like, can I please remind you that you know a thing or two about writing? Because I can't stress that enough. This was fantastic.

I loved it. You are surprisingly good at writing Draco. It's craazy. And I very much approve.

Ohh Pansy. She is just getting destroyed in this one. Completely. I love it xD

"He tried to do a number of things to occupy his time, but nothing seemed to satisfy,"
OMG. So.funny.
Unintentional innuendos are amazing.

He's being so obvious. Look at that. He's just like, "Fuck you; I'm not a part of your system. Give me my woman, damnit; I'm an adult." Okay, I'm done xD

I liked the greenhouse scene. The banter between them was so good. See, and you were worried that you couldn't do it? You GOT this.

It was very well done. That thing with Narcissa and Esme is very curious. Also, Narcissa is a giant bitch. Like, what the fuck. But it's making for interesting things. Also, a party sounds fuun. But what a bitch for not inviting them in the first place. Pfft. Though I'm sure it'll be some stuffy law party or something. You know how those people are.

Rofl, anyway, getting off track. I seriously loved it so much. I can't WAIT to read the rest. I really want to see what happens and how everything turns out with the case, and with Daphne. Tres excited for more!

Love always,

It was definitely something I would like to follow. :)

Nice characterization of Draco. I really enjoyed the first chapter and the second was a great follow up (I didn't want to review twice..I am lazy) hahaha.

"Unexpectedly Acquainted?" I feel like I've heard that before... OH YEAH. it's the name of Amanda's original work of amazingness :) Way to steal the title, Brad. ahhahahah.

Oh the Greengrasses are lawyers. Curious. I never thought about that side of the magical world, though we know it has to be there. I like that very much. Plus it sets up a whole world of possibilities with Draco and Daphne. I am very excited for this.

I also like what you did with Narcissa. Definitely a shift from the Narcissa of the story that got referenced here. A nice shift. I'm enjoying it so far.

Speaking of which, thanks for the UA reference with the chapter title. It was very nice :]

Draco is just as dark and brooding as ever. And an ass. Curious to see how that turns out as well!

So basically, what I'm trying to say is, I can't wait for more!

Love always,

I'm going to break it down as I read.

So, that first paragraph was a great way to begin. I like the way you put "girlfriend" and "friends" into quotes. Very fitting.

The bit with Pansy...too much? I mean, no shame at all, yeah? That was pretty bad. How could they actually ignore that? God, she's such a slut.

"No, you stupid twat! I don't want to see you anymore! Slobber all over someone else with your awful dog face, you numpty fuck."

DEFINITELY a bit much, no? I mean, you can't really come back from that. Then again, knowing Pansy she'd probably block it out and act like it never happened...

Roflroflrofl Narcissa. The dialogue was perfect. I can seriously imagine her speaking that way. Seriously brilliant work there.

Seriousdraco is serious. And angry. Oohh, this is definitely going to be freaking good. I seriously can't wait. It'll go places, definitely. Your writing blows me away. You're so talented.

(not)Patiently awaiting more!

Love always,
