Reviews For A Year Like None Other
I know how long ago this was posted, but I just felt like I had to tell you...
I have done nothing but read this wonderful story for the past four days. I loved it. It is my favorite fanfiction yet. Thank you both, this was truly brilliant, and I am going right now to read all the other ones in this series. :)
And you'd think with all the plotting going on in his head, he'd come to the conclusion that he needs to change his behaviour, if he wants respect and to be treated nicely. He really needs to learn that money means nothing and looking down your nose at other people will only alienate you.
It's so hard reading the chapters that are narrated by Draco. It someways, I see myself. Being a Slytherin, it is hard not to think *some* of the things that Draco seems to think, especially his way of appearing more confident than he really is. But, the difference, I think, between he and I is that no matter how confident or arrogant I may seem, I don't really think these things. I may appear arrogant if I see a group of my peers that seem to be a bit intimidating, but I do not believe myself to be completely superior to them, especially with not knowing them at all. Draco actually believes the nonsense he says. That's what makes his chapters so hard to get through...the sheer arrogance and his thinking that he knows more than everyone, and that he can plot his way out of anything.
Soooo very frustrating.
I think Snape should be a bit more...vocal...about Draco's behaviour. This last chapter, Draco said some pretty rude stuff, and Snape just gave a warning glare. If Draco can say three rude things in a row and ignore *Snape's* warning glare, then some other form of punishment should be implemented, despite his age. I know Draco hates being the 'bad son', but he doesn't seem to realise that he would not be the 'bad son' if he controlled his attitude and his mouth.
It was easier to accept that he had changed when we just had Harry's perspective, but now that we get to read Draco's own narrative about things, it seems like he's barely changed at all. Sure he loves Harry and Severus, but other than his change of whose side he has chosen, his views seem to have not changed.
It doesn't seem that Snape's parenting skills are as good as they were before the summer.
I am as surprised as Harry that he never really said much to Draco about his "special shampoo". I assumed that he did not say much, because he'd show Draco what it meant to be an adult. Meaning, I thought he'd let Draco tough out things and blame it on wanting to be an adult and the such. Give him more responsibilities around the house, like more chores and stuff, and again blame it on him wanting to be an adult. But no such thing happened. I do wonder what will occur during 7th year. Because Draco has already pulled the 'adult' card on Snape. I wonder how he'd react to Snape telling him to study or punishing him or something.
And this should go without saying, but your writing is truly amazing and I enjoy it a lot. I wish you could do nothing but writing amazing Sevitus/Severitus fics all day for my entertainment, but alas you have a life lol.
