Review:BarbaraPotty says:
I think this - mainly your A/N - shows very well how "a happy ending" is a subjective term. I mean, from my point of view, what was happy ending was the last chapter. This...epilogue...is, from my point of view, giving up love and family for a crush. Well, people are bound to have different opinions. :) Maybe it's because I'm married. :D

But I liked this story quite a lot, I must say, although I really think I've read it as a different story then the most - not as a story about great love, but as a story about adultery...and I think it only makes it more interesting.

Sometimes the moments with Draco and Hermione were a bit too cheesy for me, but maybe I'm just not in the mood at the moment.

I think it had many psychologically interesting moments, like Hermione constantly comparing herself and Ron to Harry and Ginny, or the idea of the competition created by the two insecure partners...

Once again, good work, and I'll look at the sequel.

Author's Response: I think your point of view if very interesting - you're probably the first who has said to me that this isn't a story about great love, but about adultery. If Hermione had consummated her relationship with Draco in this story, I would probably have agreed with you; however, all it ever amounts to - which I decided was important in order to show that Hermione really does try to salvage her marriage - is them falling in love, and a semi-passionate kiss. And in my eyes, falling in love cannot possibly amount to adultery, because you don't choose to fall in love. Marriage in general to me has always been a puzzle - perhaps that's why it's such a strong focus in most of my stories - because promising to someone that you'll always love them and always be faithful to them is such a huge thing! And very worthy of admiration.

I'm very glad you liked the story, and thank you for reviewing :)
