A different view of Draco
- Shakes head.....if Draco wanted to die it's on the cards now: Hermione will figure out something that will do the job in spades. Vince might not have her inteligence but he'll have the motivation to help her do it. Hmmmmm, another Griffydor/Slytherin alliance, and just like Harry and Draco's it could be considered an unholy one at best. Ah well, it was interesting to see Draco take out Daddy dearest and friends! Yep, Draco's not a hero, but he has at least a few shreds of honor and compassion. Thanks for writing this, I enjoyed it very much!
(#) MononWalker 2008-08-13 12:44:20 PMVery good, Clell. A very different Draco. Indeed, this is a Draco I could (grudgingly) like. I like how Harry mocked/teased him at the end -- "Buy me dinner, first" indeed!
As to your A/N quiz, I don't/didn't know which character you paying homage to -- it could have been anyone from Steve Austin to Wolverine -- there are many characters that have bio-mechanically enhanced abilities. But since you seemed to be specifically avoiding mentioning nanites, I did a quick Google search and came up with Bloodshot from Valiant Comics. It's been a while but I remember reading a few issues of the Harbringer War and maybe an issue or two of X-O.
Thanks for this great story.
Author's response- I avoided using the term 'nanite' because it isn't an idea that Draco would be able to wrap his Victorian mind around... On the other hand, he would understand 'machines'...
- The Comic in question is Malibu's 'Solitaire' from circa '93. An excellent story ended much too soon.

Real fun reading.
Author's responseActually it's based on the Malibu Comics Hero 'Solitaire' circa '93. I loved that book, so of course it didn't last long...
