Review #2, by marauderfan Is Anyone Who they Say they are?

16th January 2016:
Hi again! It has been too long. I'm excited to be back reading this story again!

Ooh, this was an interesting one. I think the situation in the beginning with Hermione and Draco being kind of cold to one another seems pretty realistic - they may be better at talking to one anoher by this point, but they certainly aren't friends yet. So I think that bit where neither of them will talk until the other one does, it seemed very real and made sense considering their past and how they're still in this weird place where they're no longer enemies but arent friends.

Wow, and I definitely didnt predict that Markus Parkinson was visiting while under Polyjuice potion of Narcissa's hair. But it makes sense as to how all this was happening and how Stan was meant to look like Lucius.

And that cliff hanger! I must knowww! Great chapter (and once again I'm sory for low quality phone review - but I still loved the chapter!)

Review #3, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Guilty or Not Guilty?

12th September 2015:
No!! Dee, how could you do this to me!?!? Such a Clyffie! They don't need to wait until October!! Anything in the world could happen between now and October!! They need to start dating - no, better yet, get married - right now!! *Throws Temper Tantrum*

Okay, let me just calm my little Dramione-shipping self down now. :P

I'm kidding, of course. It makes total sense that Hermione would want them to wait, to be sure this isn't some fling or "comeback"-type thing - it's very characteristically intelligent of her and could potentially save her a lot of grief later on! And, even though I'm slightly worried that Draco will do something to ruin it between now and October *raises eyebrow suspiciously*, I feel pretty confident that they'll work things out.

I was really happy to see that they made up, and you cannot imagine the rejoicing that was going on over here when they finally kissed!!! *throws party*

Also, I was pleased to see that Astoria will have such a long sentence, and I think the fact that she showed no remorse what-so-ever makes it a little harder to feel sorry for her, as the Ministry Official said. And of course, it's perfectly natural for Draco to still feel some worry for her, even though things happened the way they did. It's good to know that the Dementors have been replaced, too!

Anyway, this is another, amazing, amazing chapter, and I SIRIUSLY SIRIUSLY can't wait for the next one OMG write it now plz!!!

Author's Response: Ahahaha! Oh, Jayde, I love your dramione-shipping self♥

October is definitely a long way away but I'm glad you agree that it makes sense for Hermione to feel that way.

I swear the next chapter is coming, I'm averaging about 3 words a day so y'know...progress :p

Thank you so much for being wonderful♥

Review #6, by Unicorn_Charm Who Ever Said Relationships Were Easy?

*House Cup 2015 Review - Gryffindor*

De!! ♥

Hello again love! I forgot that I was reading fic for a moment. This all just seemed like it could have been an actual continuation of the series. Like for real, Dee. :) I could totally see Hermione being a workaholic like this. To the point where her relationships would suffer. I mean, Ron's anger was completely understandable, not like in other fics where he sometimes just flies off the handle for no reason. I hate that and I'm so glad you didn't do that here. :)

I loved all the background of Hermione going back and finishing school, because she didn't think it was right to just take the Auror position without the proper qualifications. That is so Hermione. You really have her character down. I'm totally excited to see more of her, because so far your characterization of her is one of the best I've read.

Oh the proposal was adorable, but then made me so sad because it's obvious that their relationship is crumbling. And it's also sad because they're both aware of that fact. Like when she was remember the whole dishwashing thing compared to what it's like now. *tear*

Harry still seems to get her better than anyone it seems. You got their whole brother/sister bond perfectly. He's there for her, yet he's not afraid to call her out on her bs. Love it! And he's proposing to Ginny! *squee*

Love, love, love already Dee! Can't wait to read on! ♥

Tons of love; all the hugs,

Author's Response: MEG♥

OMG what even?! How am I supposed to respond to those lovely comments!

This is pretty much my headcannon for Ron and Hermione, I think that they would have argued a LOT in their relationship and I think work would be a big area of concern for them both. Obviously they would get through it unlike in this story :p

Thank you again for being so lovely♥

Review #7, by Unicorn_Charm Prologue

19th July 2015:
*House Cup 2015 Review - Gryffindor*

Hi Dee!

So I thought that I would check out your Dramione while I was stalking your AP. :)

Um... What just happened?? What's going on with the (I'm assuming) Death Eaters? And was that Hermione they just found? What was that house she was in? Was it Draco's? When is this taking place? Gah! You have one of those, "I must ask all the questions and get all the answers" prologues. So now I have no choice but to read on, because I hate not knowing things. :p

This is honestly like the perfect prologue. It's everything one should be. It's vague, intriguing, a little unsettling. It really brings you right in immediately and leaves you, not wanting, but needing to continue on. Like I said, you raise a lot of questions, which is exactly what you should be doing here. Otherwise, why would anyone read on. :)

I really want to know who the woman is (it's Hermione, isn't it? It is) because I love how calmly she sat there and waited for them to arrive. I love the fact that she didn't panic and almost welcomed it. It already shows what a strong character she is (because it's without a doubt Hermione :p)

Great opening, Dee! I'm without a doubt coming back to read more. :D

Much love,
Meg ♥

Author's Response: MEG! HAI! Sorry for my crazy delayed response. Better late than never, right?

I know that you know that it wasn't Hermione but you were asking all the right questions at this point :D I won't answer them because if you ever come back to this story, I don't want to spoil it for you!

Thank you so much for this gorgeous review♥

Review #10, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Is There Anything Left to Say?

7th July 2015:
YAY I get to be the first review on this chapter!! *Celebrates*

And now.. on to your review!

Well he had BETTER be sorry for how he treated her!! *Shakes fist at Draco* I hope he realizes it's going to take a pretty good apology to make up for that! He just set himself back like... a million steps! *Facepalm*

I'm really glad Draco has realized his feelings for Hermione, though - I just hope it's not too late for him to make things right!

I was happy to see a little closure with Astoria - I imagine there WERE still a lot of feelings and thoughts that needed to be explored there before Draco could truly 'get over' the situation, and it seems that he's finally done that with his 'Goodbye'.

And now, I really hope Astoria goes to trial and gets put in Azkaban for like.. EVER! LOL I know, I'm being harsh, sorry - ignore me! I just really don't like her - she almost prevented Dramione from happening! :P

And knowing that Markus knew about the situation... now I feel even MORE sure that Narcissa knew. I mean, how could she not? *Raises eyebrow*

Anyway, another great chapter, I can't wait for the next! I really hope Draco and Hermione make up soon! ♥

Author's Response: Hi, Jayde! I am SO sorry that it's taken me so long to respond to this lovely review ♥

I love how frustrated you get with Draco, you pretty much sum up how I feel about him when I write this story :p

Thank you so much for your continued support and enthusiasm for this story♥

Review #13, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Where do we go from here?

16th May 2015:
Erhmigad Another Chapter! YAS!! Thank yo so much for the message!!

I can forgive you for taking a while to update - after all, RL has to come first... but I CANT forgive you for that cliffhanger!! :O :O How could you do this to me Deee?!?!? They were supposed to confess their undying love for each other now that Astoria's out of the picture, but instead, Draco's back to calling her 'Granger'? Really?!? What is wrong with him?!

(Sorry... I was a little passionate there... :P) I can't help it! This story is just too good! I really can't blame Draco for his reaction, I mean, it sounds like Astoria has been walking all over him for quite some time now, and he's tired of it! But that's still no excuse for him to talk to Hermione that way. *Grumbles at Draco*

And Harry... oh, Harry. I'm not sure if I think it's meddling, or endearing that he's interfering. I mean, it's obvious that he cares alot about his friend, but who is he to try to prevent the inevitable? :P

Narcissa's behavior seemed a little odd to me... honestly, I'm wondering if somehow, she knew about the plan. It doesn't seem that way, but still... *raises eyebrow suspiciously*

Anyway, this was another intriguing, amazing, addicting and somewhat frustrating (:P) chapter, Dee! I really can't explain how much I love this story... and how much I need Draco and Hermione to make up like.. now! Great job, and I can't wait for another update!!

Author's Response: JAYDE! Your reviews are always so funny :')

Draco is SUCH a pain isn't he?! I swear, I tried to have them confess their undying love but he either wouldn't do anything but snog her (which seemed inappropriate considering Astoria had been found) or wanted to be stroppy with her. I just couldn't win, and I write strops better than snogs ;)

I totally agree about Harry, he needs to covert to Dramioneism and stop getting in the way, no matter how good his intentions are :p

I'm about three quarters done with the next chapter, I really want to get this story finished soon. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long. Thank you for another amazing review ♥

Review #15, by Veritaserum27 Must All Good Things Come to an End?

9th May 2015:

This chapter. I'm a puddle of nothingness. I have to confess that I am a really big Ron/Hermione shipper, and this chapter just destroyed a little bit of me. Don't get me wrong - I love a good Dramione - especially when its done well, but you wrote their break up so... so... heartbreaking! Ron was actually mature. He was able to see through the anger and list his very valid reasons to Hermione. And she had no choice but to agree.

Part of me wanted to yell at her, "Hermione! Quit your job! Show him that he means more than your career!"


She couldn't do that. I don't know if she will be willing to do that for anyone. But it might hurt Ron even more to find out that she is...

I did find one small typo here:

his the hand which rested upon his knee

I think you meant to use either "his hand" or "the hand" :)

So... now that you've broken my heart - I need to move on to the next chapter :D

♥ Beth

Author's Response: Hello again!

I'm more of a Draco/Hermione shipper than a Ron/Hermione shipper, but this broke my heart to write it. I never wanted to write Ron as he is so often written in fanfiction but I think it made it worse for me by doing that, I wanted to hug him :p

Thanks for pointing out the typo! I'm such a lazy editor ;) And thank you for another lovely review!

Review #16, by Veritaserum27 Could the Timing be Any Worse?

9th May 2015:
Hello again!

Good job with the make-up scene for Ron and Hermione. It wouldn't be realistic if they just fought and fought. Plus, it's not like either of them to give up on something so important.

I'm glad her meeting went well! It seems that the new guy will definitely help Hermione accomplish her goals.

Ah! So Draco's an Auror. That's really interesting. I'm sure there were some rough patches (like you said) with both Harry and Ron, but I've always felt like Harry would be more willing to acknowledge that someone had changed for the better. Ron is always going to hate Draco - especially for what happened to Hermione at Malfoy Manor during the war.

And then we are right back to the arguing again. I can sorta see Ron's point here. I don't think Hermione is intentionally avoiding wedding planning, I just think she feels like it will always be there and there are more important things right now. However, Ron thinks that too - he's feeling like their relationship is on the back burner and I can't blame him.

Yay! Harry and Ginny are engaged! At least that's one happy couple! (Two if you count Draco and Astoria - haha!)

♥ Beth

Author's Response: Hi, Beth! I'm finally getting around to replying to more of your lovely reviews!

Without spoiling things too much, maybe don't count Draco and Astoria in your happy couple list ;)

Review #17, by Veritaserum27 Who Ever Said Relationships Were Easy?

9th May 2015:
So after your super-suspenseful Prologue, I just had to keep reading.

I love your banner for this, by the way. I think you've characterized Hermione and Draco's emotions really well!

I really, really like the premise of this. It has a very different flair than any other Dramione I've ever read. I love the way you described it - as a "slow burn." I think that is the only way those two would get together and I'm really excited that you've acknowledged the fact that there is SO much history between the two of them that there are a lot of layers to get through.

Great job with Ron and Hermione's characterization. I feel like Hermione thinks she's always got to work harder to overcompensate for being Muggle born - as if to prove that she's just as worthy. Poor Hermione - wasn't saving the wizarding world enough? And then there's Ron how doesn't quite get where she's coming from. Not that I can put all the blame on him - she needs to learn a bit of balance in her life. The good stuff will pass you by if you're too busy trying to "change the world."

Ron's proposal was perfectly Ron - I was giggling at that. And poor Harry. Get a grip, man! Of course Ginny will say yes!

♥ Beth

Author's Response: Hello again :)

It definitely is a slow-burn, I think it has to be to be believable. And I totally agree about getting through their history, even getting them to be friendly is an achievement :p

I always take it as a huge compliment when people comment on characterisation, Hermione, Ron and Harry are the characters that we know best and I think that makes them the hardest to write.

Another lovely review, Beth, thank you!

Review #18, by Veritaserum27 Prologue

9th May 2015:
Hi there Dee!

I saw you'd posted that you had a new chapter up and I realized WHAT?! - How did I not know about this story?

This first chapter was just about perfect. It is everything a prologue should be. I've read so many near misses that this was a delight to come across. For one thing - you weren't afraid to keep it short. You're just giving us a taste of the excitement and horror that we can expect in this story.

Also, your story summary was fantastic. A lot of times when there is a key plot point like a kidnapping, the author will put it in the summary, but it doesn't happen until six chapters in. You've led with the good stuff here. :)

It was great how you painted us a picture of Astoria's demeanor. She's calm - she even knew it would happen - and you gave us just the tiniest hint that Draco is involved in some way. Maybe not intentionally, but he is the reason she is being taken.

Great start! Can't wait to read on!

♥ Beth

Author's Response: Hi, Beth!

I feel so bad for taking so long to reply to your reviews because they are SO LOVELY. ♥

I really struggle with opening chapters so your comments are such a relief for me, I'm so glad you liked it!

Thank you so much, Beth, you are wonderful.

Review #19, by slytherinchica08 Haven't You Figured it out Yet?

3rd May 2015:
WOW OK HOLD THE PHONE! (I haven't used that saying in such a long time :P) Talk about a plot twist! So Astoria has been behind this whole thing? Talk about absolutely crazy! Man, you really have me reeling from this new information! To be completely honest, I never expected for her to be behind it all. I'm just completely stunned right now, and I really dont know what to do with this new information. Although the upside is that obviously Draco wouldn't want to take her back (not that he really wanted to before we found out this information) but especially now that we know this, there is no way he will be wanting her back. Which is an awesome thing when it comes to the dramione aspect of this story as it really gives an opening for Hermione to come in and be able to get with Draco without worrying about Astoria still being in the picture.

I also really loved this chapter. This chapter had so much more description going on and it really made it much easier to picture the events and get sucked into the chapter (not that I haven't been sucked into the previous chapters because I definitely was sucked into them as well) But still, I could really feel myself getting pumped up from the action of the story and it really made this chapter stand out to me!

I can't wait to be able to read the next chapter (seriously you should really get on that :P) This is a really great story and has been super enjoyable to read! And YAY I'm finally all caught up on the posted chapters now! Woot Woot! Again this was a super enjoyable chapter! Great Job!


Author's Response: Hahah, I love that saying! :p Yep, all Astoria's doing, she's such a witch :p It does definitely clear the way for Astoria, but as you know with my stories, Dramione is never that easy ;)

I'm glad you liked the description here, I'm working on improving it slowly but surely :)

I'm not sure if you're up to date or still up to this chapter but there are two more after this one now :D

Thank you so much again ♥

Review #20, by slytherinchica08 Who Said Anything About Being Friends?

3rd May 2015:
Gah that ending, how could you do that to me? At least the next chapter is already posted so I don't have to wait to find out what is going on. But still, thats so not fair to do.

And then we have the kiss! I mean I'm so extremely excited, they finally kissed.. but then you go and do something like that where Hermione tries to deny the attraction and the feelings and tells Draco that its all a big mistake! She can't do that to him... or me! They need to be together!

But I do love how Narcissa seems to know things about her son before even he does. It really shows her character (and also keeps her close to canon as well which is really nice to see). She really does love her son and while he may not enjoy his choice of company with Hermione, she does still love him. I thought it was very touching to see anyways.

Your chapters are definitely more conversation heavy but in this chapter it does seem like you've added in some more description details which was really nice to see. Adding in the bits after they speak that give us a clue into their demeanor I think is super helpful to get a better idea of the characters and the feel of the story as well.

I thought that this chapter was very enjoyable and it definitely made me want to read more. Again, I'm so glad that the next chapter is already posted so I don't have to suffer with that cliffhanger! Great Job!


Author's Response: Hello again!

I do love a cliffhanger ending :p However, since my updates are so slow I really need to stop with them for my poor readers :p

You have no idea how difficult it was for them not to just snog the faces off each other but I really needed to get on with the plot LOL.

I'm definitely working on the description thing. I need to revisit these earlier chapters.

Thanks for another lovely review!

Review #21, by slytherinchica08 Hasn't Anyone Heard of Communication?

3rd May 2015:
Guess who's back?! Its only been closing in on a year since the last time I stopped by to read and review this story but now with the Let's Get Active Challenge, I decided to stop by once more and see if I can clear out a few of my stories from my currently reading list (or at least catch up with the posted chapters) so here I am at long last. Now onto the actual review itself.

Its so crazy for me that even though it has been quite some time since I last stopped by and read this story, that the moment I began reading again, the details all began to come back to me. I wasn't feeling like I missed so much stuff or that I was completely clueless as to what was going on with this story so that was super nice. The flow that you have for this story is also super nice. Everything flows so well together and not once did I feel like I needed to pause to take in information or reread sentences because of structure. The only thing I could really critique would be to say that while this was a great chapter, I do feel like some more description could be added in (though that is definitely a personal opinion and it is just fine the way it is). Basically I just feel like this chapter was very conversation heavy and while that helps to move the story along at a nice pace, I dont feel quite as immersed in the story because I can't feel or see (or any of the other senses) what is going on in this story as well as I could with a bit more description. But again, this chapter was still really wonderful and a great read! Great Job!


Author's Response: Guess who's really late responding to this review? :p I'm glad you came back! :D

I'm so pleased you hadn't forgotten everything :p I definitely agree about it being dialogue heavy. I do that way too often and it's something I'm trying to work on but I just get so wrapped up in the story!

Thanks for the review my lovely ♥

Review #22, by firefly910 Who is Keeping Secrets Now?

8th April 2015:
The last scene reminded me of NCIS when they have their 'campfires' to go over the case. That will make no sense if you don't watch the show!

I'm wondering why Hermione is so adamant about keeping the info about the notes a secret? I know that Ron would be all for pinning it on Draco but would Harry? It would put Draco under suspicion but he's already been ruled out of the actual kidnapping.

I know it's probably all going to come to light at some point. It'll be interesting to see Ron and Harry's reaction when it does.

Author's Response: LOL, I don't watch the show so that makes no sense :p I'll take your word for it ;)

Review #23, by firefly910 Does Anyone Win When You Compromise?

8th April 2015:
Oh Draco, you tortured soul. The backstory you have given him as to how he's come to change his views is perfect. It isn't to over the top, he hasn't had this HUGE epiphany and started hugging muggle borns all the time. He just wants to do what he feels is right now that he's out from under his father's influence.

Narcissa is characterised perfectly as well. I can imagine it was hard for her to have such a fall in society. As much as she may have detested her husbands way of life, it did bring a certain level of living (as I mentioned with Astoria in my last review) and I can imagine her wanting to have that once more, without the Death Eater associations.

You write about the Malfoy's brilliantly.

Author's Response: Hi again :D

I'm really pleased you like his backstory, I think it's important to have one in a Draco/Hermione story, otherwise it just seems unrealistic to me. Thank you for another great review!

Review #24, by firefly910 What is Draco Malfoy Hiding?

8th April 2015:
What is going on?!?!

Once again great dynamic between the two of them. Hermione is always going to get the answers she wants.

It's also a nice touch that you have Draco kind of still being controlled by his family. His mother did always have some sort of hold over Draco and the fact that whatever is happening is her idea is a nice little twist.

Author's Response: Everything is going on!

I think after the war, Draco would still be pretty heavily influenced by his parents, he doesn't really know any different.

Review #25, by firefly910 Can a Leopard Change it's Spots?

8th April 2015:
I love Dramione dynamics. Whatever situation people put them in you can just tell they spark off of each other. Not in a necessarily romantic, they just seem to have this . . . thing between them. Well for me they do anyway.

I like that this is obviously going to be slow burning Dramione. It's the best type.

Also interesting (but not surprising) that he covered for his mother. If he thought her innocent then surely he could have just told Harry what she had said about her being on the visitor log?


Also liked that you introduced relationship problems with Draco and Astoria and the fact that she didn't like his work. Although Astoria probably wasn't a raving dark magic supporter I always imagined her to like the lifestyle that came with being a Slytherin in high social circles.

Having her fiancee putting Death Eaters away isn't really conducive to the life she wanted is it?

Author's Response: Hello again, Callie! ♥

I totally agree about Draco and Hermione, they have such a great chemistry. Slow burning is definitely the best, I wanted to make it realistic.

You're definitely right about Astoria...
