Review:Appalled. says:
The Harry/Ginny storyline is wonderful but you've turned Hermione, who is the least forgiving person in the books into such a Draco fangirl that her character is literally unrecognizable.

Draco could drown kittens on a table in the Great Hall and Hermione would just tell Ron to stop "living in the past". Hermione has turned into such a Death Eater apologist that I'm half expecting her to start writing articles about how the Death eaters never existed and how Voldemort was just misunderstood.

Ron deserves so much better than her coddling of the person who nearly murdered him that I'm half wishing he'd left her in Malfoy manor. maybe a little more of Draco watching her be tortured would give her some more wisdom.

Author's Response: Thanks for your opinon! I'm sorry to say I have to disagree with you, though. I realise that Hermione wasn't always the most forgiving person when she grew up, but I think it's one of her major flaws and I definitely think it would change as she grew older. She isn't thirteen anymore, so isn't going to go and punch Draco like she did then. Drowning kittens would totally put her off, whoever did it, but maybe especially if Malfoy did it. I don't know if you've read all the chapters of this story but to Hermione, it looked as though Malfoy was trying to change his way, now that he was finally free of his father's influence. She chose to give him the chance - and I think, if people didn't, things could never truly change in the Wizarding World, and they couldn't overcome all the prejudices and problems that started the wars in the first place. If you want to get rid of those, you have to give the people who were mistaken the chance to change. Which she did. As it turned out, Draco had an ulterior motive and she stopped trusting him. After that, she's about as far from a fangirl as she could be. Did you see the conversation she and Harry had about Ginny possibly cursing him? Hermione isn't going to try to be his friend again - because she's not THAT forgiving. But she wanted the world to change for the better and so she believes in second chances. It has nothing to do with Ron and though he wasn't so fussed on her working with Draco, I don't think he would have loved her as much if she had still been that stubborn, unforgiving thirteen-year-old. For one thing, I doubt their (or any) relationship would have worked out if they were unable to show forgiveness.
