|Review:||Just another fan says:|
Sigh. I don't even know you and I am sure you don't know me, but somehow i know.. I am absolutely in love with you.
You stories provoke so much emotion, it so dark yet so real. My brain is always saying to sleep and rest for tomorrow but my eyes can't look away from reading your stories; Delilah's black book of poems (and all your other stories) is so captivating. I just can't get enough.
Along time ago, when someone mentions dramione i automatically think of a happy sort of love, the one where there is alot of teasing and playful banter. But now, all I think of is you; Dark Whisper. Where "love is a curse"... ;)
Never stop writing, never stop sharing your brilliant stories and in return I will never stop loving you ( actually truth be told, no matter if you decide to stop writing tomorrow or the next day, you would still have a special place in my heart ( although I probably would have mixed feeling about you :P )
This review probably doesn't make sense.. Sorry about that :3
Lots of love, just another fan xox
Author's Response: To "Just another fan"...
You lovely, lovely person, I must apologize for taking so long to respond to your review. I hope your love for me has not turned to hate in your wait. I could give 100 busy excuses, but honestly, I have never had a Reviewer tell me they loved me before yours came along. I thought his deserved a special response. Some reviews are easy to respond to, but matters of the heart require much more attention than a mere 'thanks.'
You give me wonderful, multiple compliments on my writing and it truly means a lot to me as an author... that I can evoke such emotions with words on a page is amazing. I love reading and writing 'sadness' because it makes me feel something deep inside... it makes me think about the real world and how life can break our hearts to pieces. Yet, if you have read several of my stories, you'll know that I tend to also write of hope... that even in our most dire of circumstances, in time... devastation can be healed.
In starting Delilah, I wanted to write a deep story with Draco and Hermione that would be believable. One that would explore Draco's mind, in the depths of how he would realistically feel as a very distraught and remorseful Death Eater. And Hermione as well... as one silently suffering from her blood status, so deep that even her best friends don't know.
And ah, I've changed your mind about Dramione? That is a compliment to me as well. Yes, let me tell you... love can be a curse. But, I do believe in it. Hearts can be changed and they can heal. They can forgive and be repaired enough to love again.
You can rest assured that I will be continuing to write DBBP until the end. I am committed, but slow. I have too much time invested not to. And, more importantly, I feel that I truly owe so many precious Reviewers, like you, a finished, completed story.
I am truly baffled by the comments and encouragement that so many people around the world have given me. I am so blessed beyond measure!
Lots of love back to you. I cannot thank you enough for this conversation with me, however late it is. Please know that your words are adorable and regarded as golden.
Thank you with Love,
