You! You've successfully ripped my heart out and shredded it into pieces... This chapter. Gah..

I love that Hermione came to him full of concern and a desire to take away all his pain, isn't that what we all want for the people we love?

And then for her to drop that bombshell and say that she loved him leads to one of those, "Well, now what?" moments for us readers because we know how torn he is already and how desperately he wants to keep her safe, but her telling him she loves him just makes it that much more difficult for him to do so.

AND THEN he has to be the "good guy" and show her his "true colors" because it's the right thing to do. And while yes, it was the right thing to do, it's such awful timing that it hurts. Gahh.

Now it's all a big mess and he said that he loved her back and she couldn't even tell him that saying she hated him was only a heat of the moment thing and that she was just shocked and angry because he'd left out the truth for so long.

OH MY GOSH!

Okay... I need to stop repeating everything that happened back to you and just tell you how bloody fantastic this chapter was. I know you were scared that it wouldn't turn out right and didn't know how to do all the specifics, but you did an absolutely wonderful job and I applaud you on that. Keep up the good work, I absolutely cannot wait for the next chapter, I know from here out it's going to be heavy stuff, but gahh... Keep up the amazing work.

Author's Response: Mischief managed18,

First, can I say how much I adore your reviews? How can I thank you? You always make it so hard for me to respond. :D

Awe, I shredded your heart? Oh my, sorry for that. This is sad, indeed. I just want to cry for them, especially now that we have reached this pivotal moment in time.

You are so right. We want to protect those we love and take their pain away. So true.

Oh, yes... She just came out and admitted her true feelings for him. She offered herself, but did so out of love for him. And you are so right... "Now what?" What in the world is this torn gentleman to do? Well, now we know. We have this glimpse of him being a truly "good man" because it is the right thing, but terrible, awful timing. It's just heartbreaking, truly and I'm glad as a writer that all of that came across correctly. But of course, he is still flawed at using an Unforgivable on her.

The end of this chapter was planned since day 1. It is now a 'big mess,' just as you said. Draco thinks she cannot love him and that miscommunication will bring him much pain. and she will regret saying that she hated him, because it just simply isn't true.

And the tragic thing is that she won't just be able to tell him in the morning. His time at Hogwarts is over. The war has begun and there is much "heavy stuff" coming as you have expertly predicted.

Thank you sincerly for faithfully returning for more and sending me such lovely comments.

Much appreciated,
Dark Whisper
