Wilma Dearing?

Buck Rogers?

What an interesting source for inspiration. 

Author's Response:

Hello Lovely ker_splat!

  *laughs* Yes, I used to watch the Buck Rogers' TV show as a child and a crush on Gil Gerard for years. (painful to admit-but true)  I thought about using the name Ardala, but I don't think she had a last name. *giggles*

I'm enjoying this story and check frequently to see if you've updated. I like how you've fleshed out Pansy. You don't get a lot to work with from canon and it's easy for writers to turn her into a shrew but you've gone and created a sympathetic character who jives with what little we know of her via JKR.

I think you got a little heavy-handed with the "this relationship is doomed" aspect of Pansy/Ron, unless that was an attempt to convey something about Pansy's character. With the Epilogue floating out there it made those sections come across as foreshadowing and not character. I'm not sure what you were aiming for there.

Like I said, I look forward to the next chapter and I eagerly await the Pansy/Hermione confrontation you've got simmering in back. 

Author's Response:

I am happy to hear you are enjoying the story and the Pansy I have created here. I've really tried to make her compliant with the canon (outside of the epilogue -- I'm still saying bull hockey to that one :) obviously.)

The 'relationship is doomed' aspect -- you will learn more about that in the next few chapters. As I have tried to make this Pansy's story, she knows the back-story which means she isn't always direct about her comments and neither is Draco.

There is definitely more to Pansy than meets the eye 0:)

Now I'm really looking forward to the Pansy/Hermione showdown!

Author's Response: It's still a few chapters a way, but I think you will like what happens next 0:)

I wish more people would put Ron Bashing warnings on their stories. I read the first chapter (having never read any of your other fics) and thought that you were going on a very tough path of delving into the relationship between Ron and Hermione. Don't get me wrong, what Ron did was horrible and indefensible and I was very curious to see how their life together could continue. I even went back and skimmed Stranded to see if there was any justification for Ron's beliefs.... of which there was very little. So here was the potential for a very dark, very complex R/Hr story.

I don't have the words to express my disappointment in seeing how you took took Ron's massive screw up and used it as the justification to turn every single character against him. It was wrong for Ron to hit Hermione but perfectly fine for Ginny to use magic to assault her brother. Lots of Bad!Ron, bad which... don't get me wrong, was to some extent completely justified! But you took it way over the top.

I've never written a negative review before, normally when I have nothing nice to say I just shut the Hell up. But your ending left me so disgusted... Why did Ron hit Hermione? Because he thought she had slept with Harry and Ginny. And how does this story end? With Hermione heading off to bed Harry and Ginny. You justify and confirm Ron's jealousies.
