Review:DracoFerret11 says:
Hello again! Sorry for the delay. So, let's go over things:

I'll start by mentioning the one part I found odd: in this chapter. You mention near the beginning that Draco "knew her very well," but there's not really any prior hinting towards that, and without an explanation that just seems rather random.

Plot: I really liked this chapter. The beginning was very sweet when he left her the roses before he went home. I thought it was very believable for him to leave and stay away for a couple of weeks. That made a lot of sense considering their circumstances. And when Hermione wrote him the letter the "P.S. It's raining." line was so powerful. The steady rain when he arrived was so symbolic of the change she'd made in her life by taking off the ring. That was just really gorgeous. It tore at my heart. Great job. And your love scene was very sweet and tasteful. I commend you!

Characterization: I think that you hit Hermione and Draco's characters perfectly. Draco trying to stay away because he didn't want to hurt her; Hermione needing him but not knowing quite how to say it. Perfect. They mesh very well in this story, and I love the relationship you've created between them.

Descriptions: Again, you've done such a lovely job with your details. I'm so impressed by how much I feel like I'm experiencing this story alongside the characters. Really lovely.

The emotions in this story are so raw and realistic, and your writing is so poetic. I really love it and can't wait to finish this story. Well done and good luck to Slytherin in the House Cup!

Author's Response: Hello again, Ravenclaw.
I do appreciate your many in-depth reviews. So lovely to read and ponder them.

As for "knew her well," I meant that they were not strangers. They have known each other since they were eleven years old. Their history goes way back and they are now adults in terrible grief, wanting to 'feel something' other than pain. It is not love, of course. It is desperation and comfort mixed with heightened emotions that has them falling.

I'm so happy you liked the roses and him staying away for awhile. This needed to happen... "back up and re-group," as they say when time is needed to rethink things.

Thank you so much for mentioning the P.S. line. He knew exactly what that meant... she was going through a rough time. And also, for the 'tastefulness' of their coming together at last. Sincerely, my heart thanks you for that.

You are quite generous with your compliments as I do try to incorporate details so that others can "see" what they are seeing. A wonderful complement. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Dark Whisper
