This is a brilliant piece, the characters, the action. This is an outstanding piece. I love this one -shot it is my favourite.
Great story! And Molly's capabilities in defending her children are even more believable after DH! Your fic fits very nicely into canon.
Great story. Love it really. It makes so much sense, them trying to kill Ron and Hermione. And Mrs. Granger is awfully smart. I really liked it. Great idea.
was actually pretty good...i liked it
I admit I was close to cry reading your story. I needed a few days passed on to write a review. It worths the time spent on, both writing it and reading... The action is marvellous... I liked the fact Hermione's father is involved in fighting and her mother... It's very original for a Muggle to try 'fake magic'. I thought it's baby Hermione's magic powers that rebound Bellatrix's curse, but your touch to 'love' is... so wonderful. Isn't it all that HP series about? But it was Longbottoms that made my eyes wet. Mr 'Inner Eye' saw Ron's future role, right? What about Hermione? Did he see hers too? I give you a 10/10.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It's very, very nice to hear that someone took the time to read it (it was a bit long for a one-shot, I know) and enjoyed it so much. I've always thought that Hermione's parents deserve a little attention. Even if they are Muggle dentists, a girl as honorable and brilliant as Hermione must have come from excellent parents. I wanted to show a combination of pure love, raw courage and simple cleverness that could be a match for even powerful magic. And I'm so glad you loved the Longbottoms :) It made me happy to write them. As for Tirsus Trelawney's prophecy, he didn't actually SEE Ron's involvement or Hermione's: all he saw was that he killed them both, and Voldemort prevailed. He didn't know the reason, but yes, it was simply that no matter how great Harry Potter would someday become, without his two most loyal friends he could never succeed. Trelawney and Lestrange only focused on the Weasleys at first because they underestimated the Grangers. Thanks again for the review! I've got to run right now, but I'll read your story as soon as I get a chance.
