Review #1, by nott theodore Chapter Eight

27th April 2017:
CTF Jailbreak Review

Hello! Okay, I'm going to be the first person to admit that I am not the biggest fan of Draco/Hermione as a pairing, and I don't often read it, so I hope that you take that into consideration with this review. And I'm also aware that I'm jumping into the middle of this story so there's probably a lot of character development that I've missed :P

It's really unusual to see this from Hermione's point of view and being told in first person. I don't know, I feel like I've read a fair few stories about Hermione (albeit not Dramiones) and I don't often see people who are brave enough to write her in first person. I think you did a good job of capturing her character here, though, and I think that's really impressive.

I really liked the sibling relationship between Harry and Hermione. To be honest, I think I'm one of those people who never really thought of romance between any of the characters when I first read the books, so I just accepted canon, and this sibling relationship is like the canon version. I like the way that Hermione trusts Harry so much and is able to confide in him about all the things that have happened and what she's feeling.

Haha, I loved that comment Harry made about how he can see him and Ginny married with three kids. Looks like he'll get his wish :P

Draco seemed pretty defensive at the end of this chapter, after his nightmare - I'm kind of intrigued about what he was dreaming about, to be honest!

Sian :)

Author's Response: Hi Sian! :)

I really quite enjoy reading/writing stories in first person because it allows you as both the author and the reader to get inside the characters' heads more easily than third person could give you. I'm so happy you feel like I've characterized Hermione well here and didn't mess it up too bad :P

Harry and Hermione just feel so much like siblings to me as well! I've read a few romantic stories featuring them but I've always loved their best friend/sibling relationship so I really wanted to have a few scenes throughout the story to really flesh that out and bring it forward more than JK did in canon. After the War I feel like Harry is all Hermione really has to confide in that she can 100% trust because she was with him through the entire thing.

I quite enjoy writing Harry as well so I've taken on more pieces featuring him! Draco has always seemed like a character with many hidden secrets who is also very emotional under the surface. His complexity is why I really enjoy writing him too. I'm excited you were interested about it!!

Thanks for the lovely review! :)

Review #2, by dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap Chapter Eight

27th April 2017:
I never really understood how Ron and Hermione ended up together. I never thought she would be with Harry either and no, Draco wasn't an option. I guess to me romance wasn't a huge part of Harry Potter. I didn't really care for that aspect but thinking about it now I think Ron would have tried very hard but he wouldn't have matched all that well. I could see them not working out after awhile. I mean they also balance each other out but I don't know. Hermione needs someone who challenges her.

I really enjoyed the interaction between Harry and Hermione. They have always shared a closeness that I admire. I do think he would talk to her about his troubles because I believe Harry would only feel comfortable around Hermione, Ron and Ginny. Even years later when they're older those would be his go to people. It's just they all share this special connection with him.

Do you think Hermione's parents would have remembered her after everything? I've always wondered.

I was wondering how you were going to fit Draco into this. It's crazy to think Harry would trust Draco. Why not, right? I mean in a way it's not so crazy because he knows logically that Draco isn't a bad guy. To think Harry would actually want Hermione to be nice to him is odd but also sort of comforting because it just shows growth on his end.

I would love it if Draco actually did know about muggle literature. I can picture him hiding his Shakespeare around the manor and up late at night desperately wanting to know what happens in the final act of one of his comedies. I'm sold!

The interaction between Draco and Hermione was brief so I can't comment too much on that. However, this memory of hers that she has repressed does prove intriguing. It has something to do with Draco and I think once she figures out what it is her feelings towards him will change completely.

In a good way of course! I hope!

Author's Response: I really enjoyed writing this extended scene with Harry & Hermione because I feel like their sibling-esque relationship doesn't get touched on nearly enough in canon or in fic, so I wanted to highlight how I viewed them. I'm so happy you liked my portrayal of them this way! When it comes to relationships too, I feel like Harry would be more comfortable talking to Hermione about it because it would just be plain awkward talking to Ron about his own sister, even though Hermione has less experience (technically speaking) than Harry does. She also knows Ginny differently than Harry does but can also provide knowledge on their relationship from Ginny's POV too. I'm hoping to get another one of these scenes in soon!

The bit with Draco was just to propel the relationship between him and Hermione in a different manner than it often progresses in this type of story. With the dynamic between Draco & Harry, I'm really trying to make it believable in that both will be skeptical of each other initially but with the help of Hermione as a sort of intermediary, they'll eventually warm up to each other. Obviously, I'm working on getting Hermione & Draco to warm to each other first, and I hope it's coming across well! The little bit with Draco and muggle literature was cute and I thought it'd be a nice touch, so I'm glad you picked up on it and liked it!

And thanks for reading through the first 8 chapters!! ♥

Review #3, by LadyMalfoy10141920 Chapter Eighteen

28th August 2016:
Hi I really like where this story is going but after chapter 16 I can't help but feel confused...The Chapter classes talks about stuff that has happened but there is a big gap between that and chapter sixteen...Could you help me understand because I'd like to finish reading the story

Author's Response: Hi! I'm in the middle of re-writing this story and so there's still a few leftover chapters from my previous iteration of this that I have yet to rework.

I apologize for the confusion and will be posting a new chapter soon and hopefully finishing this properly before the end of the year!

Review #4, by Unicorn_Charm Prologue

27th August 2015:
Hey Madi! :D

So I'm kind of new at Dramione fics, as I said on the forums. I've only read a few and the ones that I've read, Draco and Hermione seem a little too ooc for my taste. Not here though. I can actually see that happening. Draco was conflicted by the time the battle came around. Conflicted and tired, I think. So to see him help Hermione out there didn't feel entirely ooc to me. :)

Ugh but when she was caught by the three Death Eaters my stomach turned with how they spoke to her. I didn't know what they were going to do to her (althought since this was a flashback, I knew they wouldn't have killed her), but I still feared for her. You did a great job creating a tense and frightening atmosphere there. Ugh and to think that she was tortured again. My poor Hermione. :(

I know this was only a small taste since it is a prologue, but I liked it. I do want to continue on and see possibly more of what happened, if more happened and what is to come between them. It was a very intriguing start to your story and I really enjoyed it. :) I'm going to come back to continue this. Thanks for suggesting it to me!! ♥

xoxo Meg

Author's Response: Hello Meg! :D

Eek, I'm happy that you are a new lover of Dramione! Welcome to the madness :D

I'm happy you enjoyed the prologue! I wanted it to be something that was realistic yet also (obviously) not what happened because this is a Dramione. But I'm happy you thought that Hermione and Draco were both in character!

Writing the three Death Eaters scene was interesting to say the least. I did my best to simply imply things rather than state them outright, because I feel that heightens intensity because the reader doesn't know what's exactly going to happen, so I'm glad it came across well. Yes, poor Hermione! I have to have all the bad stuff happen to her first before it can all get better!

Please come back to this! I'd love to get some fresh eyes on it now that I'm almost caught up with revising the current chapters with quite a different plot line. :)

Thank you for taking me up on my self-suggestion! ♥

Review #5, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter Fifteen

3rd July 2015:

I'm sorry it took me so terribly long to get to this, but you knew I had to come ASAP! I couldn't stay away for too long! :P

So, there are quite a few interesting things to comment on in this chapter - Draco and Hermione's introspection, the list of character traits they made, and how heartbreaking it was to see Draco think so poorly of himself.

Also, it was nice to see the resolution between Hermione and Ron - it's great to see that they can still be friends, and that Hermione feels that she can finally open herself up to finding someone again!

Then there's also the general excitement of finding out their animagus forms in the next chapter, and the nervousness about the sinister plot that's going on, and a general wondering of what's going to happen when Draco and Hermione find each other (I really hope they can at least be civil!!)

But, there's something else here that's weighing a little more heavily on my mind.

THE KISS!!! ♥ ♥ YASSS! They finally kissed! It's starting! I'm so excited! I know they don't really even know what that kiss meant, or where things will go from here, but YAYYY they kissed!! I LOVED IT!

Annnd that's enough fangirling from me. :P This was another incredible chapter, lovely! I can't WAIT for the next one!!

Author's Response: Let's just pretend that I wasn't super late in replying to this for you anyway and both our lateness cancels out, yeah? Cool.

This chapter was definitely the most difficult thing I've ever had to write. I really had to get into Draco and Hermione's heads to determine their traits and such. Draco's scene alone took me about three days to write because I kept changing it!

As I said in a previous response to one of your reviews, I'm not a Ron-basher, so making him and Hermione be able to move on and be mature adults about their past relationship is something that just felt right to me.

Girl, let me tell you about that kiss. The moment I had written it down, I texted my friend Lauren (Mischief_managed18 on here) about it and she and I both started fangirling like crazy about it! So I've been fangirling about it since I wrote it and ever since I posted the chapter! So please, fangirl away about it! :D The kiss is going to make things a bit awkward between them, even if they are going to find each other to discuss animagus things.

I'll try to get the next one up within a month. Thank you SO SO much for going through and reviewing every chapter--it's been so long since I've had anyone do that and give details about what they liked/didn't like so I'm very, very grateful to you for doing so! ♥

Review #7, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter Fourteen

14th June 2015:
Oh my Gosh. I have got to find out what's happening with this new 'lord' person... and now there's a prophecy? And it will take place in just 6 months? Hm...

Yay! Hermione's going to be an animagus!! I don't know why, but I get the feeling Draco's going to be a snake. I know, it's such a typical thought for a Slytherin to become a snake.. but.. I just pictured it in my head when it was mentioned. I really have no idea for Hermione though!

But oh my Goodness. Draco needs to GROW up!! He is really making me mad in these past few chapters! I hope he gets over himself soon.

Another great chapter!

Author's Response: Yeah I should probably write that prophecy then, shouldn't I? :P The "Lord" person will surprise you, I can securely promise you that! :D

I've already determined what each and every student in the class's Animagus form will be, so I hope you like what I've chosen for all of them! Malfoy does shape up, but he's just frustrated with himself and the current situation right now. I'm getting tired of writing him like this too, to be honest, so he'll be better! :)

14th June 2015:
And there's that shadow again! *Raises eyebrow suspiciously* I really don't want anything bad to happen - but I want to know what's going on with that! lol!

Awww. I'm glad Harry and Ginny made up - but then again I mean they had to... those two were made for each other. :P

And, come on, Draco - stop being such a jerk!!

Another great chapter, lovely!!

Author's Response: I should really differentiate in my manuscript which shadow is which just to help my sanity, and also the readers. :P Basically I keep mentioning the shadow because they are consistently listening in on conversations and watching interactions between high-profile people from the War who were at Hogwarts to report back to their master about anything they felt was worthy of telling.

Harry and Ginny just could not stay apart for any longer, I had to get them back together. Hashtag Hinny for life! :P Draco shapes up soon, and so does Hermione. Thank you so much for reviewing each chapter, it means the world to me!! ♥

Review #9, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter Twelve

14th June 2015:
*Gasps* PEEVES?!?? So, is HE the pair of eyes that have been creepily following everyone!? And what has he got planned for Halloween?? Oh no!

I really don't think he's the only threat, though - there's clearly a person involved here - a Death Eater of some sorts... but who!?

(Did you know that you are very good at writing drama/suspense?) :P

And I know exactly why Draco is mad about Hermione and Ron... but he needs to stop acting like a jerk all the time! If he likes Hermione he needs to say something, not be mean to her! And stop calling her Granger already!

Another dramatic and suspenseful chapter! I'm off to the next!

Author's Response: Peeves is...occasionally the pair of eyes that creepily follows everyone. He is quite the sneaky little devil, and his Halloween plans are quite spooky. It makes my heart flutter you think I'm so good at writing drama/suspense! ♥ Draco is a bit thick when it comes to girls he doesn't know how to work with, and that's exactly what Hermione is to him: an enigma that continues changing and evolving with each passing day so it's harder for him to determine how to act and react with her. He'll stop calling her Granger when he's ready! :P

Review #10, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter Eleven

14th June 2015:
Did you think that I was finished?? NOPE, NEVER! Muahahaha! :P

I loved the magical courtyard! Your descriptions made it sound like such a beautiful place! And I think the fact that it's so well-hidden definitely fits with all the other hidden things in Hogwarts.

Hm... an exploding staircase, and now Draco's mark is tingling? What is going on here?!?!? lol. The suspense is killing me!!

And of course, I loved the flirting, too. :P

Another great chapter lovely, I'm off to the next!

Author's Response: I actually got the magical courtyard idea from a different fic I read a long time ago and probably would not be able to find again, but I wanted it to be a sort of sanctuary for Draco, considering all the crap he went through his fifth and sixth years at Hogwarts. He needed something positive in his life, my poor little baby.

Ah, yes, the exploding staircase. You'll see who was the culprit of that in the next chapter! The Dark Mark will be explained later on, once the main villain has been revealed. The flirting is always fun, of course :P

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

I knew this conversation was coming! I'm pretty sure there's still something there on Ron's part - I mean he's already complaining about Malfoy! And, I really liked reading things from Harry's POV this time, by the way.

And there goes another mysterious object floating around! What in the world!?!

I also loved the little details about the Amortentia-brewing. For example, Draco now smells strawberries and lilac - those are the scents Hermione used in the bathroom in an earlier chapter! Awww!! I think it's so sweet that both of their tastes have pretty much adjusted to each other, and they don't even realize it yet! (Although I think Draco might realize, since he had that confused look on his face).

Also, I really love the new Potions Professor! And the scene with Seamus' typical exploding cauldron was hilarious!

Another great chapter, lovely! Well done!

Author's Response: Gotta love those floating shapes! That is another antagonist (if that's even the right word) who so rudely got left out of the movies! (hint: he's in the books and causes lots of trouble).

With the Potions class, I really researched the Amortentia potion and it's ingredients. I made up the times/stirring counts/ingredients counts but otherwise everything was canon! A girl's gotta have some fun in a dark story! ;) Professor Imohera is one of my favorite OC's so far in all that I've written, so I might have him pop around for when I write a Scorose story.

Harry's point of view will definitely pop up again in the future, as I feel it adds some variety to things and gives readers a break from constant Draco & Hermione interaction. I'm glad you liked it being in there!

Review #12, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter Nine

12th June 2015:
Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Oooh! The dream! I have a prediction! I think it's Lucius who's doing all this.. the sneaking around... am I right? (I know you can't tell me, I'm just wondering out loud!) And also, knowing that Draco has dreams that sometimes come true... I think I might know why he saved her! Maybe he had a dream that she was going to be his wife someday, or something! And that made him think she's going to be important in his future, so he couldn't let her die! Oooh, this is so exciting and nerve-wracking!

I really like the parallels you create between the two of them, using their different points-of-view. The way they both admire each other's bodies makes me really happy to see - get together already! haha!

Anyway, another great chapter, that left me with even more questions! I can't wait to read more! Great job!

Author's Response: I can actually tell you about the dream and your theory--it is not Lucius, as in my universe for this story, he's been locked up in Azkaban due to his involvement in the first and second Wizarding Wars, and his money nor testimony from someone of the Light could have gotten him out of jail time. It's only about twenty years he'll have to be in there though. Narcissa is not in Azkaban, although she is under close surveillance by the Ministry. Her help confirming Harry's "death" absolved her of any crimes she may have committed.

As far as Hermione's role in the dream, well...it's possible your theories are correct, and also not possible. I know, I'm a terrible person but I'm also an author, and an author cannot go around revealing all of her secrets! :P I'm glad I'm leaving you with lots of questions each chapter--it means [hopefully] that people are intrigued enough by all these unanswered questions that they continue reading. :)

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Awww. I really loved the description here of Harry and Hermione's relationship. They really are like brother and sister and it's so sweet. I'm also really glad that we got some insight here into what happened with Ron and Hermione. I'm so glad that it ended on good terms.. but judging from what Harry said, I get the feeling it's not really over, at least for Ron.

And there goes that dark shadow, creeping around again! What is it??!? The suspense is killing me! haha!

And, I think Harry gave Hermione some good advice - it seems that memory is very important. But, due to dramatic irony, I also know that someone else is looking for that memory - so it might be best for it to stay hidden!

Another great, suspenseful chapter! I can't wait to read the next! Well done!

Author's Response: Have I told you how much I love Harry and Hermione's relationship? No? Well I love it. A lot. And I'm so happy I got to write basically half a chapter about it and how close they are and it just makes me so happy! *squee* It also allowed me to explain how Ron and Hermione came to an end as a romantic couple and returned to being friends. We'll find out Ron's feelings on the matter in a few chapters, don't you worry! The dark shadow is in fact, a person, and it's one that I've already mentioned in previous chapters. ;) Yay for suspense, continue on my dear!

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Oh My Goodness, so much drama! I can't believe someone went and took a picture of those two, and took it to Rita Skeeter! I mean, I definitely believe that Rita wrote that article, because, it's Rita... lol. But that's just LOW.

I was kind of worried that their fight was for real. But, I was so happy to see that they were both just playing along to get rid of any rumors... although, based on the question that they were asked during the meeting, I'd say the rumors haven't been completely dispelled.

And *gasps* So, it's definitely a Death Eater in Hogwarts, and they're trying to get into Hermione's mind!??! Who is it?!? I really hope it's not Draco! And the fact that this new person is being called "Lord" is scary!

Another intriguing chapter, I can't wait to read more! Great job!

Author's Response: Hahahaha I love drama! I've been itching to write an article in the Daily Prophet like it's Rita Skeeter so I just had to do this one! I'll probably have one later on as well to keep it consistent. Her source will probably be revealed as well when I write that one. The fight was also fun to do! The majority of the students really didn't care all that much what happened, but the Prefects obviously have a bit higher at stake if the Heads get a bit messy, so I hoped that was conveyed and it seems you understood me!

I can tell you that the Death Eater is *not* Draco. I can also tell you it's not Voldemort either. :P It'll surprise you, for sure once the story gets to that point! Thank you so much for doing all of these chapters! ♥

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Wow. Tension-filled is right. Hermione had every right to be mad at Draco, and then he went and made it worse by prying into her mind. I am really curious as to why she can't remember him saving her, though, and I'm even more curious as to why it's so important to Draco that she remember.

The way he was talking things over with Blaise has me kind of worried... it almost sounds like the two of them are in together on some plan to trick the wizard world, via Hermione. But, at the same time, Draco is hiding things from Blaise as well... maybe Draco's a double agent? I don't know! lol.

And WHAT is going on at Hogwarts?! I am SO curious about this mysterious figure - how has nobody noticed them yet? And, what's this cold chill going through Hogwarts? And, is Blaise in on it, since he's completely ignoring it?

So many questions! Great chapter dear!

Author's Response: The opening scene was great fun to write and I'm happy you thought it was written well. The reason why she can't remember him saving her is because her Occlumency walls screwed up a bit due to adrenaline and caused the memory to get locked up where she can't find it unless...[no spoilers for you!] It's important for her to remember for Draco because he believes it will help solidify her trust/faith/belief that he has changed.

Blaise is a slippery, slippery character. Keep your eye on him, he might disappear into the shadows otherwise...

12th June 2015:
Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

That sneaky, sneaky Draco! I just knew he had put something in her drink! But, at least Hermione was able to unwind and enjoy herself a little bit.

I'm not sure how I feel about the new class. I mean, I agree that they need to do whatever they can to prevent another war from breaking out, but I agree with Draco and Hermione about not making everyone re-live those horrible memories. That would only provoke more pain, and, by extension, more hate, in my opinion.

I love the idea of a Ball, and it was great of Draco to offer the Malfoy family's money to pay for it. I also think that after the damage that occurred, Hogwarts would definitely have a hard time getting back to its former glory, so I think the fact that you mentioned that is a nice touch and very realistic.

And, like I said, Draco and Hermione (with a little help from Harry) have begun the healing process! I LOVED that all of the Seventh Years, regardless of their houses, were getting along and chatting after those two entered the room! I hope that continues to happen even when Draco and Hermione aren't there.

And, oh boy.. a hungover Hermione. She is going to feel awful... and she's also going to be SO MAD at Draco... Oh boy! I can't wait to read the next chapter! Great job dear!

Author's Response: Haha Draco just had to have some fun with Hermione!

The new class is a sort of an experiment on both my part and McGonagall's part as well. I figured they would need to do something to address the tragedy of the War they'd just won but couldn't think of anything better, really. Plus I've always wanted to design a class, so this was kind of my chance to do that :P And don't worry, the lessons shown in later chapters are fairly regular lessons!

The ball is something I originally had in this story and I decided to keep it in because plot points (hello dates to it?) and it's something bright for the students to look forward to! I try to be as realistic as possible with the scenery and details I add in, so I'm happy you mentioned my mention of Hogwarts and you liked it.

Aha, the seventh years' common room--that's just McGonagall's ploy for House Unity at play :P Their amiability and closeness does continue when the two Heads are there, I promise! You'll begin to see some inter-house friendships forming soon because of this! Prepare yourself for hungover Hermione, she's quite volatile!

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

I LOVED the tour for the first years! I think it was a great touch, and I absolutely adored when Draco started talking about Quidditch. I could almost see him smiling as he said it, so enthusiastic about sharing his love for the sport with others. I'm a little curious as to why he said he "used to play" Seeker - is he not on the Slytherin team anymore? Or maybe he's got too many Head Boy duties to play Quidditch.

I am SO curious about what's about to happen in this meeting! And that last line just reminded me of all the spooky little details that have been going on, like someone who sounded a lot like Stan Shunpike sneaking in to the castle, and then someone moving unnoticed in the hall. Hm... it's so spooky and interesting!

Another great chapter, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Author's Response: The poor first years! It was apparent to me that they never really got to know the castle before they were thrown into classes in canon, so I was like, why not have a tour for them? With Draco's Quidditch career, I think the fact he switched sides and was still a convicted Death Eater doesn't make him the favorite of the other players on the team so he wouldn't really want to do that with such animosity towards him. Also, being Head Boy meant a lot more work to be done and less free time to go flying, so that's also part of my reasoning for him not returning to the team.

The meeting is going to be good, I can promise you that! With this mysterious character lurking in the dark, I've got lots up my sleeve with that one! ;)

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Hahah! I love this chapter! Those two don't even realize how much they're already starting to like each other and get along! :P I was really shocked when Draco admitted that he's read a lot of literature, but it fits with someone of his social status, and I'm glad they've got something to talk about!

I think it was hilarious the way everyone kept staring at them, but I think that what's happening is great! The two of them single-handedly are putting an end to House Division and stereotypes, the blood purity issue, etc! It's awesome!

I was really shocked to hear that Ron and Hermione aren't together, and I wonder what happened with those two? Whatever it was, though, I'm glad they're still good friends (at least, for now).

Great chapter, and can't wait for more!

Author's Response: This was a fun chapter to write, admittedly. Draco always seemed to be very well-read, even if it was supposedly only on wizarding material, but I feel like his mother would have smuggled him muggle books during the school year because she knew of his love for reading. He's not quite as voracious a reader as Hermione, but he's close!

The other students bit was fun to write because it allowed an outside perspective on what Draco and Hermione perceive as just normal conversation about literature and everyone else thinks is absolutely bonkers! House Unity! House Unity! :P

The reason why Hermione and Ron aren't together will come up in a chapter or two I believe, but it's nothing horrible--I'm not a Ron-basher so it's not extremely rude towards his character or anything. I'm glad you liked the chapter! :)

Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Wow. This chapter really got me. First of all, your descriptions were INCREDIBLE. The way you described the Heads' Common Room was amazing - I could see every detail perfectly in my mind. And, the bit about all the students now being able to see Thestrals was heartbreaking, and a nice touch.

I really got chills when McGonagall revealed the plaque - that really was an amazing touch, and made me want to cry - it got me right in the feels, as did the Sorting Hat's song!

I was glad to see Draco being nice to Starry, and I love how he and Hermione are already joking with each other. And the shower moment! :O That was hilarious!

Another fabulous chapter, lovely, and I can't wait to read the next!

Author's Response: Hi again!

Eek, I'm super excited you loved the descriptions!! It took me probably four to five hours to decide just how I wanted their common room to look like, and I almost drew it out on paper at one point! The Thestrals bit was hard to write, but it made sense to me, as the vast majority of the students had seen the Battle and participated in it at Hogwarts, so the Thestrals would all be visible to them. The plaque was an idea I came up with out of the blue, but it felt right to have it there.

Starry will play a nice role later on and she will be helping the duo out quite a bit! I had to have a bit of humor in there--I can't write constant darkness and angst for too long otherwise it drags my mood down. :P Keep chugging along!

Review #20, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Chapter One

12th June 2015:
Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Okay, so maybe Draco didn't alter her memory! :P It's obvious that the memory is still there, though - I hope they're able to bring it to the surface again! And Aahh, now I see why Draco was lurking in the shadows of Diagon Alley. Hm.. interesting.

It almost seems like Draco's using her, in a way, just to fix his reputation - by aligning himself with a former enemy, he's trying to show that he really has changed... but, I really hope there's more to it than that! :P

I was so happy to see that Hermione's parents were understanding! I nearly cried at the way they were all crying and hugging there on the platform!

Another great chapter, dear, and I'm off to the next!

Author's Response: Haha yes, he did not do that to her! :P Draco is going to utilize Hermione and her position, just not in the way it seems to be looking right now. But of course there will be some bumps along the road, as there always are when it comes to this pairing! I feel like Hermione's parents would understand their daughter and her reasons because she's so intelligent and was doing what she thought was best for them at the time and didn't even know if she was going to be alive after the War ended anyway. Her parents love her dearly and wouldn't cast her out because she took their memories while there was a war going on--they get it. See you on the next chapter!

Review #21, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Prologue

12th June 2015:
Here for Hufflepuff, House Cup 2015!

Hi there dear! It's me, your NaNo Mum from last year! I told you I'd come and take a look at this, and, although it has taken me forever, I haven't forgotten! You were the first person who popped into my mind when we got the 'Review a Ravenclaw' assignment!

I think this is a really great introductory chapter. Things have taken a slightly AU turn here, but you've done a wonderful job of making that clear to the readers and letting us know just what's going on!

I am already SO curious as to what happened to Draco that would cause him to save Hermione like that (although my inner Dramione fan is screaming "because he's secretly in love with her!) And I'm also wondering why he's covered in grime right now - what's wrong?!? Also, I'm kind of suspicious that he might have cast a memory charm on Hermione, since she can't seem to remember what happened between the two of them.

I think you did a wonderful job with the time transition also - you made it very clear when we were going into the past, and when we were back in the present - great job with that!

All in all, this was a great start to the story - I'm already intrigued, and I can't wait to see where things go from here!

Great job!

Author's Response: Hello NaNo mum! (let's not pretend I've already talked to you about all this lol)

I knew from the get-go that this was going to be slightly AU just because of the premise of it being a Draco/Hermione story where they return to school, but I also knew I wanted to make it unique. So with the locked memory I made sure it was clear to readers this was different than usual, and I'm glad you caught that! Draco's had a bit of a change of heart, let's say for now, which will cause a whole chain reaction for other things later on. I always try to make it very clear when I'm changing points of view or time is changing, so thank you for assuring me it worked and helped the smoothness of the transitions! Thanks so much! :)

Review #23, by ArtsyTigs Chapter Nineteen

18th March 2015:
Yay! I love how he calls her 'Mi and not Mione.

Author's Response: It actually took me some time to figure out the perfect nickname for the boys to call Hermione. "Mione" is such a common one in fics that I didn't want to use that so I felt like "Mi" was unique enough but still close enough to "Hermione" that it would work. Now, as it's been revised, the name is used sparingly because of course Malfoy just enjoys using her surname much more.

Thanks for the sweet reviews! :)

I am so very confused. Between 15. Chapter 14 and 16. Getting back isn't so easy there seems to be a chapter or so missing..

Author's Response: Yes there is, sort of--I'm still in the process of editing the last 5 chapters and posting them so there is some major disconnect still. I'm hoping to remedy that by the end of June!
