I enjoyed tension between Harry and Draco very much. I love their uneasy friendship.Author's Response: Hi again, and thanks for leaving another note. Well, I don't think I would call it a friendship between Harry and Draco, even though I did show Harry trying to give Draco the opportunity of agreeing to some sort of truce between them.
When I wrote this scene I was thinking of the way they were portrayed in the epilogue of the books. When Harry, Ron, and Hermione notice Draco and his family on the train platform in the books, they don't greet him or approach him and his family. But neither were there any nasty looks exchanged. This portrayal led me to believe that there was just a mutual 'live and let live' avoidance that developed between these characters over the years. I think Ron also tells Rose to make sure she beats Scorpius on every exam, which seems to suggest that the animosity hasn't changed between these characters over the years.
So in keeping with how the characters were shown in the epilogue, I was very careful not to whitewash Draco in my own story and to keep his demeanor toward Harry quite unpleasant. Even though Harry offers truce, and Draco might inwardly even consider it, he can't actually accept it. In the time-frame of this chapter, I imagine Draco to still be fearful of himself and his family getting arrested and sent to Azkaban. He would probably also be fearful of Death Eater backlash for fleeing with his family from the battle, and wouldn't want to risk being seen in the wrong company. I portrayed him as basically still trapped in his Malfoy upbringing, and not yet having the strength of character to stand up to what his conscience may be hinting is right.
The scene of George's comforting Angelina who missed Fred was a very touching sight.
I enjoyed the scene of jest between Harry /Ginny and Ron/ Hermione.Author's Response: Hi, thanks for your comments. This was a fun chapter to write. I'm glad you enjoyed those scenes. I was hoping that moment between Angelina and George would come across well. I didn't want it to feel romantic yet, but I did want to point out the dilemma they would face later on down the road when they did start dating. I also wanted to point out that while the twins were a lot a like, they were also individuals and shouldn't just be thought of as interchangeable in the relationships they had with others.
Anyway, I'm always happy when I find ways to include George in this story. I've always been a fan of the twins, but find them a challenge to write. Thanks again for your comments. I'm glad you've enjoyed the story enough to keep reading this far. Report Review

I've just read your summary of Chapter1 , and added to my favorite stories. There are a lot of stories that were not told by J.K.Rowling. I'll read your whole stories soon.Author's Response: Thanks, but I will admit now that this is the first ever fanfic I wrote, way back in 2007, and I was really young so it's not brilliant, far from it really. But read away! I hope you find it okay anyhow... :-) Report Review
I started to read fanfic about paring Hermione and Draco first time. I could imagine a beautiful garden you created vividly.Author's Response: StarFeather,
First, you have a beautiful pen name. :)
I'm so happy that you have started reading this paring, but I'm sorry you chose one that has only been started. I haven't updated it in awhile because of so many other Dramiones that I'd been working on, so this one had to wait.
I invite you to my other stories that are finished though and hope you enjoy my favorite (and many people's favorite) paring.
Thank you so much for your compliment about that garden. I wanted to describe it vividly so that readers could 'see it' as I saw it.
Thanks so much and Merry Christmas to you!
