There is a dialogue in Billy Elliot about a father who puts on the mother’s clothes. It ends with something like this:
“Only when he thinks there is no one watching.”
That’s the first thing that came to mind when I read the first chapter of this fic. I tend to like writing about Slytherin characters, particularly about something other than the death-eater/murdering/torturing/really-evil aspect of them. So I was eager to read this story. But, oh boy, this was not what I expected.
I think you built up the suspense in the beginning really well. I didn’t see it coming and when he finally picked up the dress… That was so funny! Well done. Way to break expectations. #
Characterization is not exactly spot-on, but, this being a humor fic and all, I don’t think that was the point to begin with. Also, the whole thing ended up being a tad too superficial. Okay, so, Draco is just going to pretend it never happened? Doesn’t he think about what this means? Doesn’t it impact the way he thinks of his father (particularly considering how Lucius ordinarily treats him/speaks to him)? I get that this is a short fic but the ending could have been better written, to at leat imply that these matters are not irrelevant.
But that’s not a big deal if one doesn’t take the fic too seriously. Again: It is humor after all.
Great job creating a very entertaining piece.

this is an interesting idea. i do like the idea of lucius having a more... eccentric and unique side. however, i do think the reasoning for this could have been better written. it was a tad more awkward than i would have preferred. that being said, i did very much enjoy the imagery of it. it's an interesting snippet into the life of an elusive character.

So the caterpillar tongue makes an appearance in a story! This is a mix of what did I just read and...wow. It's hilarious and Rabastans characterisation is brilliant!

Dude this is so weird.
What the actual fuck?
Oh no wait this is great.
Awwwwwwwe that was such a good Lucius-Draco Moment.

I don't know what to say.

Some of the details at the beginning seem unnecessary, like going into a description of all the things Draco sees in the room before he answers the question. Although thinking back on it after getting to the end, it does work well to show Draco's discomfort with the situation.
Lucius secretly loving to cross-dress is hilarious. Him forcing Draco to try on a dress is... not so hilarious. I know it's meant to be funny, but Draco is so clearly uncomfortable with it that it doesn't come off as humorous.
Typos and grammar issues:
[along the lines of, "Burn it," Instead] - of "Burn it." Instead (No comma between and of and the dialogue. You're starting a new sentence with Instead, so the end of the dialogue should be punctuated with a period. Or an exclamation point for emphasis, if you are so inclined.)

This is hilarious. I can just see this happening, Lucius parading around the house asking Dobby his opinions! At the start, I thought Draco was a young child, but as it went through I started to understand more.
Draco's stammering! It's hilarious. And the last sentance is amazing. I can just see Lucius strutting down the street in his dress, becoming trans and getting the attention of Witch Weekly, becoming the new woman of the week.

Awww! Poor Lucius! That was very funny! I couldn't stop laughing at the idea of Lucius and Draco in dresses. Also, I think you captured very well Draco's reaction it feels like something he would do. Great Job!

Please write a story where Snape owns a poodle if you haven't already I beg of you.
I... am laughing so hard that I feel kinda sorry omfg. This is hilarious! I did not expect Lucius to cross-dress at all, and Merlin am I glad the pink dress belongs to him and not Narcissa. Honestly he's so pretty he could just pull it off.
There were quite a few SPaG errors, and another thing I wanted to mention was that if this was written from Draco's POV, it felt a little awkward to see him refer to Lucius by name. Because usually you just say "his mother/father" or "the matriarch" etc. Though if this is a multi-character POV, then ignore me. :)
I loved how Lucius then goes "Your turn" lmao poor Draco. I can just see him wanting to run away but being unable to because he had to obey his father. And that statement about being a woman lmao I just cannot XD
Lol I enjoyed this quite a bit it was hilarious. Well done!

Lol, so, I just finished reading your other fic, so my mind was thinking all sorts of things when I read the first line. XD This was hilarious. I'm not sure if you meant it to be this way, but I found it sort of crack-ish with hints of realism. Lol, Lucius has questionable fashion tastes and I thought his tastes would be more refined than a dress resembling ham. I liked the idea of Lucius trying to give Draco the opportunity to explore what he wanted, though that's a bit OOC. It was a fun read. (Now I entertain the idea of Lucius not only wearing dresses but jewelry and high heels too!) :D

Can you just imagine a tiny little fluffy poodle that just swoops into rooms in a Snape-esque way? *Whispers*Write it...
Back to the story. I had no idea where this one was going but it was glorious. Lucius shimmied into the dress like he did every day - and he probably wore them every day and I'm dead. Thank you.
Narcissa probably knows and most likely owns dresses like that because Lucius has no taste and will pick the awful ones and leave her pretty ones alone!
I'm just laughing at this. I feel it was a bit much for him to push Draco into wearing one, but aside from that, this story was utter gold!
Also something tells me that Lucius likes the idea of wearing uncomfortable dresses every day :p

"Part of being a woman is learning to deal with uncomfortable clothes." Dear gods, this is the most accurate sentence ever.
Okay so. This was... unexpected. I don't think I've ever read anything with crossdressing before. Definitely an interesting experience. I'm not sure how I feel about the forced crossdressing on Draco's part. Such things should be esplprrd willingly, so it was kind of creepy for Lucius to insist his son try it.
That aside, Lucius was brilliant. I could definitely see him as the type to wear dresses and stuff whenever the fancy strikes.
| MaryandMerlin chapter 1 . 11/23/2017
I'm a little bit speechless. I really wasn't expecting this at all but I find the image of Lucius in a ham-pink dress with a huge bow to be hilarious. I hope you weren't going for serious here.
I think it is the most enjoyable of the three you submitted to fanfaves, though probably not the least weird and I like the light feel you have going here - it makes it a little less heavy.
It's again a shame you haven't included more prose to go with the dialogue because the dialogue flows well and I think that would only be improved by some description.

(I've read too much porn lately, my mind went to the gutter from the very first sentence (cwl))
This was kind of hilarious. Draco's reactions to his father's behavior were perfect - I loved how 'wtf' he was about all this - and I loved that Lucius thought to involve his son and try to bond with him that way.
This was a very interesting drabble :p
