What the crap? What aboout Draco? Sorry, I'm a Hermione/Draco shipper through and through.
Author's Response: You're quite welcome to be a D/Hr shipper, however this is not strictly a D/Hr story. Sorry.
wow its finally over... i think you deserve a long and thought out review for that wonderful work... okay first offf... i ahve to admit i did stop reading for a while. but there was something that pulled me back. i am so happy i came back and finished this!!! it was a great story and it showed the truw meaning of finding yourself in a mixed up world. this chapter was really good too.... i liked to see that everything was back in place just like its supposed to be. alright im done with the story and now on to your writing, i have read a lot of stories by you... i think... it seems as if everyone gets better and i really hope you continue writing in the future so i can enjoy some more fantastic stories. you will go far, just make up some characters and let your mind work... excallent writer!! alright this is by far one of the longest reviews ive written and i hope you appreciate it. this story is by far 10/10!! wonderful job and who knows, ill probably read "what is real" sometime again soon!
Author's Response: You abanoned us and then returned? That's wonderful! I am glad that you enjoyed the ending. I really think that one of the best over-arching themes of HP is finding yourself and understanding your place in the world. I know that may sound a bit over-analytical, but I did enjoy playing with that theme with Hermione, Draco, and Ron.
I am definitely going to be doing some more writing in the future. Right now I'm taking a little break and thinking over some new ideas. Hermione and Draco are really tempting right now, but we'll see how that pans out. Anyway, thanks for all your thoughts throughout the story!
aww i thought draco and hermione would make a good couple!! but really doesn't matter cause this story was SUPERB TO READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much!
Hey, I loved the sotry, I just wish that Hermione would have ended up with Draco and not Ron. lol, but you rpolly got some ppl already saying that. Anywho, it was an awesome story, keep it up. *huggles*
Author's Response: Well, maybe just a few. . .
Thanks and I'm glad you liked it!
I love this story,I'e re-read it three times now, I love it, I love it, I love it, though for the next one you write I would appreciate a little more Harry/Ginny
Author's Response: Oh, wow, I'm so glad you liked it so much! I'm not planning anything with Harry and Ginny right now, but you never do know.
Although I dislike the fact that this has ended (*grumbles*), I can see that it was the right place to stop - you are a brilliant writer and this a fantastic piece of fanfiction. I enjoyed reading it so much - thank you! xxx
Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words! I am sad to see it end, too, if that makes you feel any better. :(
superb!!! i loved it the ending!!!
Author's Response: Excellent, thank you!
sigh, true love never lasts.. but im a R/Hr so its all good with me!
Author's Response: LOL - so true! :)
Perfect end,but you din't say anything about Malfoy.He should not be left out.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the ending. In terms of Draco, Hermione was satisfied that he was safe and that she was able to say goodbye to him. She did discuss him with McGonagall in Chapter 19 so I did not forget about him completely. I never would!
that was an awesome story...i'm so sad that its over, but at least the ending was great. do you by any chance plan on writing more stories? cuz i wud love to read them!
~your loyal fan, hpboy13.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I really appreciate all of your comments over the course of the whole story. Thank you for being such an active reader!
I'm always working on something. Actually I'm thinking about several "somethings" now. I really hope to have a new story started here over the summer. I look forward to hearing from you then!
Great ending! Loved the whole story! Nice job!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
WOW, hmm.. i see there are tingles flying everywhere! woot. i commend this fic. and i will be recomending, with your approval of couse.
Author's Response: Aww, I'm glad you're tingly too!
I would love it if you wanted to recommend this to others. That would be terrific. I'm always happy to have more readers. Thanks so much!
its true.. Draco does do that to people.. sigh, oh draco.. how we love you!
Author's Response: Oh, I know, I just love him! :)
Cute chapter, I'm glad that I stayed w/ it to the end, even though I still feel for Draco. =(
Since I mostly read D/Hr fics it's been a looooooong time since I've liked Ron. I'm used to him being a jealous, overbearing, conniving, lying jerk. Your story hit me (a rather HARD hit, I might add) that I actually LIKE Ron and totally want him & Hermione to end up together. (But not in the fan fics ;)) Thanks for reminding me about the true canon, I guess I'm becoming a bit corrupt w/ the `ships.
The comfortably warm ending part of the story (in my own opinion) couldn't compare to the shocking but surprisingly invigorating, cold shower effect that was in the beginning. It was rather lukewarm and wasn't as satisfying as an icy, cold glass of pumpkin juice. ;) It felt like the story was losing steam from the middle part. I'm not saying this `cuz I feel sorry for Draco. Please don't get me wrong, I really LOVE your style of writing but I think you want honesty along w/ the praise right? It seemed pretty obvious to me that you enjoy writing about Draco & Hermione because that's where your best work was at, in the beginning. And thats where you got me hooked. I'm not "gonging" you orange_balloon, please don't take it the wrong way. Like I said earlier, I really love your writing style. I will keep a look out for your next story. Hoping D/Hr... hope, hope.
Don't hate me orange_balloon. Please?
Author's Response: Are you kidding? I couldn't be angry at such a comprehensive review of the full story! I really appreciate the honesty and your thoughts. It's interesting that you say the beginning seems to be the stronger portion of the story because the end has been so clear to me throughout the writing process. However, if the fluff of the ending takes away from the drive of the full story that is something to be noted and certainly to be considered on future projects. That is very helpful criticism. Thanks so much for taking the time to write this up and all of your other comments! I really appreciate it!
As for Ron, I hate that he is usually vilified in other ships' fics. He is not a terrible character by any means. Yes, he's jealous which we know from canon but that doesn't make him a jerk. I really am glad that you ended up liking Ron here.
And, yes, D/Hr are next up on the list of things to do! :)
Great end to the story!! I really enjoyed the whole fan fic even with the draco shipping!!
Author's Response: Awww, I'm glad that you liked the ending (despite the Draco factor).
if hermione just reached into her pocket and touched the phone, how would she have put it back? she never got it out, did she? =) good story so far.
Author's Response: She did not remove the phone from her purse, but she did pick it up to make a call. That was all I meant. :)
Yay! It's up. That was a wonderful ending. I really loved the 'If Victor was fire and Draco was ice Ron was comfortably warm' That was very good! Hopefully you will have a bunny up your sleeve starring just Draco and Hermione. I'm sure we would all be interested in reading it. Great job all the way through. Good luck in all your endeavours! ~siriusneeds
Author's Response: Oh, I'm so happy you enjoyed the ending and that one line! Thanks for all of the comments throughout. I've always appreciated your thoughts.
As for Draco and Hermione, I'm not done with them yet. They will probably be up for another adventure all their own soon enough. They're too much fun to just let them go!
"If Viktor was fire and Draco was ice, Ron was comfortably warm."
I absolutely LOVED that story! I'm kind of sad that it's over. But I'm happy that everything worked out in the end. That story was magic!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm sad that it's over, too, but it's been a long time coming so it was worth it!
smashing! greeeaat ending.
i like how ron and 'mione finally got it together. YES! haha. =]awesome ficc
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked the ending!
Awwww thats so cuute!!
Author's Response: Thank you!
