Nicely done. I was actually searching for a story where Hermoine was placed in Slytherin, no joke, and I'm glad I found a good one.
It's interesting how Hermoine still remained close friends with Ron and Harry, even though she doesn't have many classes with them and probably barely sees them.
Anyway, I loved Hermoine's slyness and loved the story.
However, I don't think that Draco would tell Hermoine that he's a Death Eater, mainly becaue of her close friendship with Harry and Ron, unless she found out on her own....
Author's Response: Thank you, pobox! I really iked it so much as well, unfolding this story without dislodging Hermione from the golden trio. ^_^
Author's Response: Oh and the gist is that I changed nothing about what happened before and after her sorting. I only added those bits in the Slythering commons... Yes, Hermione knew that Draco is a DE. It was so apparent from his talk on the train, and we plonk Hermione right there beside them... And as you saw in my story, Draco is disgusted with Harry and Ron, but despite that, Hermione still had sway over him! Haha! ^-^
I love this. I really really do. It's really clever and above all seems plausible and true to hermione's character.
Author's Response: thank you, Alisa! I'm glad you liked it. It's heartening to see a reader constantly reviewing your stories and liking them. ^_^
I love how you divided this story in sections with the advice separating each scene. Despite being sorted into a different house, Hermione is still very in character. I like the way she handled Draco and the other Slytherins - not too confrontational and entirely cunning.
“Yes? I love it when you’re plotting and scheming, only times your Slytherin shows up.”
missing word... I think you meant: 'Slytherin side'
“Don’t be so surprised. Our Hermione had a way with him, hadn’t she?”
I think it'll sound better as: "Our Hermione has a way with him, doesn't she?" -- It is not necessary to use past tense here because it's part of the dialogue.
I may not be a clairvoyant but I do think this entry would do well in the challenge.
Author's Response: Thank you, Miel. For the confidence and the corrections. Now, that's what reviewing is all about! Thanks a lot. ^_^
Great one! You're right, Hermione fits into all four houses. She's a classy invention of JKR's, seriously. I loved the characterisation. I also enjoyed the argumentative scenes with Draco. Really well done. It looks as if you explored something that JKR never mentioned in her book. I would have believed it all to have really happened in the Potter world, if it were not for Hermione's Sorting.
Author's Response: Thanks, pooja! *hugs* I also enjoyed the bickering scenes so much, hehe!
You nailed this one! Hermione was both in character AND very, very Slytherin. I loved it!
Author's Response: yay! i'm glad, ron! thank you!
Excellent job. I LOVED how well you took each (book) and walked the reader through each one, keeping it canon. The best part was watching the relationship between the two (D/Hr) grow in a very realistic way, bringing them together in the end in a way that was refreshing and new. It was something that should have been predicatable but - for me anyways - it was a pleasant surprise. As I said above, excellent job. Best of luck in the challenge.
Author's Response: oh, thank you, nicole! i myself was giddy when the idea came to me. seven tips, seven books, so there you go... hey, you too, good luck with the challenge.
Well that was interesting, Very nice
Author's Response: thank you very much, sam ^-^
