that was an amazing story! I loved it so much!
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Why do so many people write about Draco's dad hating him?
Author's Response: Lucius is an easy man to villainize and I don't think it's a terribly difficult stretch from canon to imagine him as abusive. Also, the trauma of Draco's home life makes it easier to imagine him wanting to leave it, thus making his defection to the Order (or the "good guys") more believable. At least, that's why I did it. :)
I'm new to mugglenet and this was the first fic I clicked on. definitely intriguing... good imagery!
Author's Response: Welcome!! I'm glad to be your first stop! :)
AHHHHHHH i cant find the sequel. did u post it yet??? i want to read it so bad
Author's Response: Yes, it's posted! It's called "The Resilient" and you can either search for it on the site or find it on my author's page. Happy reading!!
Honestly, this story never seizes to interest me. I don't even know how many times I've read this story. In all honesty, I seriously love. This. Story.
Author's Response: Thank you!!! :D
Please publish this. TQVM.
Author's Response: Ha, I wish!! Maybe someday I'll write something publishable! Hahah. Thanks for reading!!
Holy mother of Dumbledore. That was... Oh my Goodness. I'm... Oh my God. Speechless.
Author's Response: :D Glad you liked it! Thanks so much!!!
Flipping out right now. So beautifully done.
Author's Response: :) Thank you!
I read Resilience first, and then realized this was the first part of it. >_
Author's Response: Aw, bummer!! I bet "The Resilient" will make more sense after you read this... hahaha.
this was a totally epic story - i loved it! i liked the alternate ending better though - even though it was a bit too fluffy. Pleaseeee write the sequel soon! x
Author's Response: Eh, I think fluff makes a better alternate ending. Leaves people feeling good inside, ya know? Hahah. And the sequel is written! In fact, I'm almost done posting it. It's called "The Resilient," if you're interested. ;)
Ohmygosh. What a twist! I LOVED IT AERWJGHW3IURGHQ;L35UHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Going on to read the sequel! :DD
Author's Response: LOL! Hope you enjoy that, too!!
Wait what?! I thought Channing was the double-spy! Don't tell me it's Draco...!
Author's Response: ;)
I'm sooo thrilled and satisfied that you took your time, making the two of them happen slowly. Other fanfics that I've read rushed Draco and Hermione into a sort of lustful relationship by the 5th chapter. You waited a good 33, and this is definitely believable. :) Love it.
Author's Response: Thank you!! I think the lustful thing is overused and out of character. Hermione simply isn't a lustful woman. I don't see her that way, anyway!
You have a good commandment of the characters. I can see Draco saying/doing the activities you've written, as well as Hermione and the others. Good job. :)
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Looove it! :D
Author's Response: Thank you!
I'm excited to be reading this fanfic! I've wondered how it may have played out, had Draco taken Dumbledore's advice and gone over to the good side. Well done, so far.
Author's Response: Thanks! Happy reading!
they should have stayed together! my heart is breaking for draco :(
Author's Response: Aw, yeah... Life is tough. Thanks for reading, though!!
luv the story
but where is the sequal??? i cant find it.
Author's Response: Thanks! The sequel is on my author's page. Try clicking on my penname when it's click-on-able and it should take you there. Or you could search for "The Resilient." Either way! :)
It was aa great little story...right up until you mentioned head dorms. As a boarding school alum, I find the entire idea of head dorms completely stupid. No school in their right mind would allow two teenagers of opposite sexes to live in that kind of environment - most schools have seperate buildings for boys and girls, and mine had seperate campuses three kilometres from one another. Head dorms are the stupidest fanfic invention I've ever seen, basically just an easy way out for writers too lazy to think of more creative and realistic ways to get a couple together than to force them to live together.
On the other hand, your writing is really quite good. And the plot so far, and particularly the characterisation of Malfoy as a completely evil/scary/just a little psychotic arse is amazing, and refreshing compared to most people's fanfic!Dracos. If you hadn't have included head dorms, I probably would have kept reading...
Author's Response: The fact that Draco and Hermione share a dorm is stated in the plot summary; I find it curious that you chose to read anyway, considering the depth of your hatred of that particular plot device. I've never been to boarding school (or even a summer camp), and never had any friends who did, so I was unaware of convention. Hogwarts is nothing if not unconventional, however, so I don't find it that unrealistic. And I found it a little tricky to maintain the balance of their relationship while sharing a living space. Roommates can either be awesome or be the worst experience of your life; rarely are they both. I'm glad that you liked my characters and the general plot, however. Too bad about the head dorms. ;)
