okay I have read this the other day, rather curious on how this ends however something kept digging at my mind. It has nothing to with where this story might go or how it ends, just it seems the pace, and I am not being mean here about this but, it seems it has gone too fast on Hermione being pregnant. I know that it's apart of your story, that she's 4 months along and then 4 months later she gives, goes into labor, has the kid and that's that. Once again I am not upset by this, just that it went by too fast. Like besides Draco arguing with her, her different mood swings, what was it that Draco fell for Hermione and his "Daughter". Was it the weird food cravings, her complaining about having swollen ankles or thinking that she looked too big? It's just something that was digging at my mind.
All in all, this story is very interesting and I hope you continue to write and upload more chapters. Pet peeve of mine where I read WIP stories and then they are not finished (A personal goal where I am trying NOT to do with my own stories) for ages.
Please update soon! Once again I am not upset or mad or anything it's just a little fast on that part.
Author's Response: Her pregnancy did go by fast because I didn't see the necessity of having a rather lengthy one because it would not really drive the story further. Also, I don't really see the point of writing chaters about her complaining all the time, and him arguing with her about it. Any pregnancy has the parents fighting to get along, and Draco and Hermione would be no exception to that.
And Draco hasn't really acknowledged his feelings for her. Right now, he's putting it all towards the love he feels for Ariella. The love a father feels for his child, whether or not biological, is not something that comes by gradually. The moment a parent looks at their child, they love it more than anything. It's as they raise Ariella that he begins to fall for her, because they have to spend so much time together.
As to them getting along, they would have to put their differences aside, well mostly, to raise a child together. Besides, when you live with someone for so long, you learn bits and pieces about them that make you understand more about them and why they do things. And when you begin to understand someone, you begin to tolerate their presence.
I know that it went fast for that part, and I'm sorry that that left you unsatisfied, but again, I felt that there was no point. Hermione and Draco would suffer through the same thing any "couple" does with their first child. I didn't see the point in writing all of these common experiences down, when everyone knows what happens because I wanted to move my story past that.
And I am continuing with this story (I have the same pet peeve =]=]) because I really enjoy writing it. Besides, I finish everything I start =]=] Thank you so much for the review, and your opinion!!! I hope I have sufficiently addressed all of your concerns!!!
