Chapter: The Inevitable Reality

I feel terrible for Ron in this story…he ends up being the second choice to the girl he’s loved for years. Not only that, he’s second to his biggest enemy, the one who’s heaped years of racial slurs on Hermione. Was that spell tinged with obliviate as well? Why else would Hermione seem so conflicted otherwise, given her vastly different history with both boys?

Now, the curse obviously was the catalyst for D/Hr, but even after it was gone Hermione still had more feelings for Draco than for Ron. If Ron was her first choice, why did she feel the need to go see Draco? It’s not to put it behind her…it was to see if a relationship was workable. Once she saw that it wasn’t for various reasons (he’s in hiding, she has to fight, the reaction of her friends, etc.), she gives up and settles for Ron.

And what a great way to start a relationship…by lying to the Weasleys, Harry, and most of all Ron. You ended this story with a fairy tale ending, with mutual declarations of love. Will it last though, when the declarations seemed so perfunctory? What happens when Ron and Hermione first sleep together and Hermione’s…not as uncomfortable as she should be? Maybe Ron could get by Hermione's losing her virginity to Draco, but about her covering it up? He still holds a grudge against Krum for dancing and kissing; I have a hard time believing he’s okay with Malfoy’s sloppy seconds. Hermione only shows that she cares about Ron after it’s clear that he’s the only one left to choose. I mean, what’s more romantic than her comparing Ron to an old sweater?

Obviously, it doesn’t matter what I think, only what Ron thinks. I personally think he’s way out of character here, but I could be wrong. Maybe he’s alright with being Hermione’s second choice--he's used to sharing things, after all.

This story absolutely killed me...I liked Hermione with Draco, although I didn't see any logic in that..

Chapter: A Chance to See Him

Was it the absent Draco or the ever-present Ron?
Nice phrasing.
All in all, one of the best chapters.

Chapter: Safety

My favorite parts:
Malfoy looked uncertain and opened his mouth to complain. Hermione screwed up all of her remaining strength and pulled herself to her feet. She leaned against the wall gingerly, not trusting her current condition. Somehow she found the nerve to speak up quietly.
I didnt go through all of this for nothing, Malfoy, she said. Youre coming with us.

It was an incredibly realistic portrayal of their characters, and I liked how they reverted to calling each other by their surnames...However, I do think that Dumbledore would have called Malfoy 'Draco', as he did in HBP.

Chapter: The Meeting

Draco finally spoke, his usual drawl lost to crisp efficiency. I told her I was coming to speak to you.
"his usual drawl lost to crisp efficiency."
LOVED that sentence...pure genius.

Chapter: The Unbelievable

She took a deep breath and dared the last words that came to her mind. They were the unequivocal truth and she meant them with her whole being. I want to be with you because youve changed.
Nice. But it would be hilarious if Hermione had an image of Ron pop in her mind for just a second and make her feel guilty.

Chapter: Some Discussion

Malfoy was a name she spat in moments of anger. Draco was a name she could almost breathe rather than speak.
I love those two sentences, the first of the two made me laugh. I only wish Draco hadn't gone overly, out-of-character sentimental and said something like..."You look different," while still implying he thought she was beautiful, know what I mean?
