Oh, the tale you tell is of endings and irreversible changes! Hermione comes across as a true Gryffindor, going on despite the very real threat of having to come to terms with Ron's loss as she searches the battleground. The harsh picture you paint of two people, one who has lost the love of her life and another who has lost his conscience in circumstances not all of his making is something that every war leaves behind in its wake and yet no less poignant despite it being a war's given. I've always been fascinated by aftermath stories and this is an excellently written snapshot of the consequences of Battle of Hogwarts. Yet, you have ended it on a glorious note of hope, with a new leaflet of mending and change for both Draco and Hermione extended in your ending words.

Well done!

Author's Response: Hi,
Thank you for reviewing! I really wanted to portray Hermione as the Gryffindor of the situation, as I often feel she is undervalued as being someone of bravery and courage because she is smart and that tends to be a Ravenclaw trait. I really think that there is so much more to her character than really is ever explored in the books so I really wanted to touch on that here, and I'm glad you noticed it.

I really did want to paint a harsh picture of the war, because I don't think the clean up would be easy, I think it would test them and in the end I didn't think everyone would be able to do it. Hermione and Draco always seemed to be the stronger characters in my mind, they are tested and tried and I love using that idea.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, it's truly appreciated!
