There’s one thing I love more than anything else. Looking in those crystal eyes. A person can easily loose themselves just by looking at them. That’s how we began, the unlikely pair we are. You can say whatever you want about the two of us, but I won’t let it bother me. Fate has its own surprises for us – I’ve already found mine. You just haven’t seen yours yet, but it’ll nip you in the rear when it does find you.

The worst had come to happen. Harry Potter was dead, Ronald Weasley was dead, and Ginny Weasley was dead. But I was stuck alive to wade through it all. Of course, I'd be wading through it in a cell most of the time, being Lord Voldemort's captive. But the Dark Prince, his succesor, was always visiting me. I know I shouldn't have, but I slowly fell for him. So this is my story, me being Hermione Granger.
