Ahh, this was heartbreaking! But I did like the image of Draco sitting with Hermione until she died. Also, this: "The day before he had talked Pansy into going through her mother's boxes of christmas decorations until she found a crumpled paper angel. It had somehow found it's way onto the grave of one Hermione Jean Granger."
MY FEELINGS. Report Review
I wish I had something clever or meaningful to say about your story, but I'm just...speechless. This is one of the most marvellous fics I've ever read (and I've read my fair share). It was touching, heart-breaking, in-character, well-written... There were tears streaming down my face mid-way through it, and I had to take a few moments at the end to remind myself that Harry, Hermione, and Ron survive in the books. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story. I look forward to reading more of your work! Report Review
wow. ive never read anything like that before.
beautiful. i loved it.
and normally i really really cant hack it if hermione or draco die so great job! very well done :) Report Review
That was such a beautiful story! Each passage was a pleasure to read, the description was extremely lush, placing me as the reader right there on the hill with Draco, surveying the death and destruction around me. Draco's characterization is also done quite well, though I was wondering, was he fighting on the side of the Trio or the Death Eaters? Anyways, even though he seemed a tiny bit out of character, the scene when he's comforting Hermione is lovely as well, and very believable (especially Hermione giving the cross to Draco to give to Ron). I don't really see it as a Dramione, but rather as a story about Draco's passage to a less pureblood state of mind, and this story brought up the question of what constitutes a sinner, and whether there is a heaven for tormented souls. All in all, a very thought-provoking and expressive story. Kudos to you! (: Report Review
Beautifully written and very sad. If the trio had died during HBP, I would hope that it would have been written this well. Excellent job. Report Review
Oh, goodness, I'm at a loss for words. Simply put, this was breathtaking and beautiful, and moving. You capture emotion wonderfully... Amazing, amazing work. Report Review
Wow, okay, I'm crying right now. That was great hon, great. I really like how you humanized Draco. He's not perfect, he still has his issues, but he's human in the end. And the paper angel, that's what got me. Great job.

That was absolutely stunning. I cried.
Words cannot describe how beautiful this is. Report Review
Wow. That was beautiful. I'm always interested in seeing how people think things would go if the trio died, and honestly, this is the most plausible and heart-felt one I've found so far. Exceptional job and this is definitely going on my favorites. :) Report Review
I love this. It's beautifully perfect. Report Review
This was a really good story. I don't read too many stories about the destruction this one described, but you wrote it so well, it was nice. An interesting way to describe the end of the war. Really cool.
I also liked how you left it open to be a Dramione or just a Draco story. I'm not a Dramione fan, so I liked how it was open to just Draco learning some lessons, but Dramione fans would be glad that they got 'together' before Hermione died. Nice work!
No problems, really. Draco's feelings were written incredibly well, and everyone was clear. Nice job!

I need to first apologize for how late this review is. My lame excuse is this: the holidays. I was on the forums everyday, but with Christmas and family in town, I got really busy and stopped coming to the forums as much. So sorry!
With that said...
Oh. My. Gosh.
Oh my gosh.
This story was.
I loved it! I absolutely loved it!
I was almost in tears by the end.
I always wondered about religion and Harry Potter and if anyone had ever explored it in their fics. But now I know someone has...
Rather beautifully, at that.
I saw the whole thing...Draco walking through the bodies, his desperation to find Blaise, Pansy, and his parents. He was not OOC at all, which pleased me immensely.
I just can't say enough good things about this!
I loved it! SO SO much!!
I am always so surprised to find that some of the best stories have so few reviews. I'm never going to forget this fic!!
(Literally: I just favorite-d it. :P)
10/10, but I'd give you loads more.
How 'bout One Million Googles /10?
That's more fitting for an amazing story like this.
*in high, soprano voice* LOVE it!
I'm a dork.
Oh, I don't care. One of the best fics I've read in a while!!
Now I feel really bad that I took so long to review this. (Again: So Sorry about that.)
Okay, I'll wrap up my review.
Thank you SO much for submitting this work of art to HPFF! I am eternally grateful.
