If the goal was good, then didn't that mean how he got there didn't matter?

^ I really liked this line because it really shows how much Draco still doesn't understand yet. Money can't buy happiness, it can't forge a friendship, it can't keep Hermione from being upset about the truth about what happened and it can't keep Jack in his life either just because they need each other.

It matters. Just because the goal is good how he got there matters as well. I think he understands that just a pinch but needs to be exposed to some more conflict before he realizes he just needs to be 'him,' whoever that is and saying 'Sorry' or speaking the truth would be the step to understanding that. Until he talks to Hermione and properly deals with Sybil he's going to still be teetering on 'I'm a good guy--but still a bad guy.'

Hugging was not in the Draco-Hermione Friendship Booklet.

^ That was funny and cute but it also made me realize just how much this story is different. You really make your other characters, Harry, Ginny, Jean, etc, believable because you still give them a 'life' and a story. In the real world because some one passes away we still have to go on with our every day lives. We still have to go to work, we have to cook, we have to clean and we have to interact with people. They would still take care of her if she needed to be taken care of but showing that Draco was the one that had to comfort her and Draco was the one that laughed with her it really made me realize that the lives of the others have been continuing where they left off while Hermione/Draco find their footing which is entirely believable.

Author's Response: Yes! I'm so glad that you glommed onto that line! I wanted readers to see that Draco's changing but he's still Draco. He's still got some "old school" values in him that he's running up against in his struggle to walk in the light.

Yay! I'm glad that there was cuteness in here! It's been such a heavy sort of story so I just wanted to inject that in there.

You actually made such a good point here of the others' having their own lives. I want to portray that more in my coming chapters because I feel like I've incidentally introduced that concept into my story in my interest to keep Draco and Hermione evolving.

Thanks so much for this insightful review! :)
