Rachel!

The backstory behind Ron and Lavender was really great as it meant I could place myself easily and understand what was happening between them and Draco and Hermione which is always good! The tension and all the feels between the two was excellent and I was almost feeling Dracoís annoyance about this deal having to end.

I really liked how you still kept it realistic with the slight arrogance in Draco in the dialogue and Hermioneís loyalty to Harry and Ron because it made me feel that this could actually happen in the HP world. I really liked the ending because even though you never directly said what the deal was it must have been monumental for Hermione to do that to Draco and it left it on a perfect bittersweet note.

Another amazing one-shot, Rachel!

Author's Response: Hi, Kiana! I'm glad that you liked this story -- I've never been huge on Draco/Hermione (although I recently finished one that was pretty good), and writing one for Erica's Christmas present was quite the challenge. I wanted to make it as canon as possible, and I'm relieved you thought this could have been something that might have actually happened between the pair of them in HBP. Keeping characters canon, and events as canon as possible in most circumstances, is a large part of my goals when writing fan fiction.

Even though the deal is never directly influenced, I came to understand it to be something like a way to make Ron jealous, in exchange for Hermione keeping Draco's activities a secret -- which, of course, led to an attraction between them that neither wanted to acknowledge. My headcanon is that they never mentioned it afterward, either, and all events progressed as normal. It's a bit sad, really, when I take the time to think about it...

Nevertheless, thank you for this review, and for all your other sweet ones as well! I'm seriously so lucky to have a regular reviewer like you. ♥
