You let Draco die. :[
DON'T LET DRACO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hermione finally accepted draco's death and also came to the realization that draco had been right. she loved freedom more then him
Who knew pansy could love, or even draco. crrreapy.
Very disturbing! Blaise?! I would never have guesed. Briliant.
Pretty creapy, but good.
This story has reduced me to tears. Thanks you for encouraging my love of Harry Potter Fan Fiction. It was a nice change of pace to see a different ending to Dramione fics.
The metaphor at the end of the epilouge is simply stunning.
OMG!!! This is so good. You're so good. I just want to keep on reading. Its so compelling in a slightly morbid way. Lol. I'm glad you've already finished writing it though, otherwise I'd be so annoyed waiting for you to update. OKay, I'm going to continue reading now.
wow this epilogue was sensational. that was the most i have EVER cried over something fictional.
great work!! :)
-wipes away tears-
if they dont end up together in the next chapter i will cry
I'm sorry I haven't reviewed any chapters before this, I didn't take the time as I wanted to read the whole story first. By the way, I liked your story very much. What sets it apart from many other Dramione fanfics was the setting - it was described vividly, showing a possible outcome that I rarely thought about. The good guys are expected to win all the time (not without some sacrifices, but still win). It's a thought-provoking idea - what would happen if they didn't? And this story's setting shows what could happen in that case.
Is this a happy ending or a sad one? It seems like something in between. A quasi-happy ending: Hermione and Draco don't end up together, but they've moved on, Draco into the world "beyond the veil" and Hermione - well, I think she can move on. Seeing Draco's grave gave her a sense of closure, if I'm not mistaken.
The raindrop extinguishing the rose flame - I think it shows that Hermione can only move on with outside help. Her own tears won't do it; only one outside person can stifle her memories. Does this mean that someone else will step in for Hermione? Does she have a romantic future after this? Also, after the rain stops, a rainbow might appear; rainbow = Iris; Iris is with Draco now. (Really random tangent, I know).
A compelling story. Thank you for writing.
I believe that beauty and the beast did have an enchanted mirror.... It was used as a communication device. Much like James Potter and Sirius Black did with theirs.
Ps good story
OMG this is is like one of the best fanfics I've read ever! Totally in my top 5 I read this in like one day coz I was so excited and because I seriously and totally love dramione! I even ran around my bedroom for 30 minutes non stop for Dramione and honestly I didn't even feel tired but when I lied down my legs were aching. Anyways this is an utmost AWESOME and WONDERFUL story! Totally love it!
omg a 5 yr old?!?!?! blimey... i always knew voldy was mental bt ths is crazy!
i miss harry and ron, n i feel sooo sorry for hermoine! awesum story so far, im just sad for hermoine.. n i loved the 'together till the end thing'.. grt job
whoa! your way with words is amazing. I think you did really good job. I actually was imagining the characters as I was reading. :)
I must say... This is one of the better fics I have read in long while. It brought about so much emotion to me throughout the whole story. So much... Sad emotions, really. And this is why I tend to avoid reading these sorts of fanfictions. It makes me look like a mad woman, bawling in front of the computer screen.
In any case, this chapter was so well written that when Hermione went to the garden, I just couldn't go through a paragraph without tearing up. Although I must admit that some parts were pretty predictable, the last bit of this, I never imagined happening. Reading the last sentence was the worst part. It tore at my heart and I just had to retreat to the bathroom to calm myself down.
So here I am, to say good job to you. I hope this compliment would inspire you to write more stories because it would be such a shame to hide this talent from the world. And also to thank you... For making me tear up? No... Uhh. I'll have to think up some explanation of why I'm thanking you.
Nevertheless, good job and hope you continue writing to fulfill the hunger of readers like me have of this "unlikely-Harry-Potter-pairing".
(That was a very cheesy and odd review from a currently very emotional Apple Fin. Good day.)
Hermione couldn't have been more obvious saying "I don't know what you're talking about." I mean, really.
But I'm extremely glad you stuck to JK's story as close as you possibly could, using as much of her original characters and items and such. I don't think I've ever read any Dramione fics that mentioned the horcruxes. I was surprised to have read it too.
I'm glad you didn't put a lot of Hermione's hesitation in kissing back Draco. I think that would've just ruined the mood and instead of it being a dramatic and climatic moment, it would've just been annoying if you had done that. Although I'm sure there would be sort of regretful thoughts in the next chapter, I'm glad you didn't put a lot of it in this chapter.
