Hm, well, I like the beginning. The very end where he said something along the lines of "All the girls come to me, except for one" seemed a bit L/J, but that's probably just because I've read those most. I like Mrs. Zabini's character. It seems fit for a rich Slytherin's mother. A lot of the stories I've read with Blaize as the main character(or one of them) portrays him as a handsome, Gryffindorish/Sly romancer. Of course, he is a little bit in this story from what I've read. But at least I see no Gryffindor in him. I like how he ruled Hufflepuff and Gryffindor out right away. A true Slytherin. As well, I really liked that he didn't fall for Draco. You started the story out very nicely. Having Daphne mostly in the same boat he is, what with Pansy and all. I like it. Lookin' forward to the next chapter!
I'm glad you like it!
I don't know about Lily/James-ish, as I've not read many fanfics about them. All I have to go on for them is Harry's encounter with the pensieve in OotP.
I tried to keep Blaise's mother as close to canon describes her as possible, and I hope I'm doing a good job of it.
Yes, Blaise is a little bit of a romancer, but he's also got a huge block of pride and arrogance standing in front of him, which would help to explain why he didn't like his first impressions of Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. And Blaise is big on first impressions.
Thanks for reading and reviewing!
