Your French was fine. And there are no hard feelings for being late in updating. As an author, I know all too well how time gets away from us. You are forgiven.
As always, I loved the chapter. The dynamics you've developed over the course of the story are so sweet and wonderful. I always end up grinning like an idiot at some point during the chapter. Madame La Motte is very well written. I immediately disliked her, as I assume was your intention. She's a character we'll love to hate. Keep up the good work. I love this fic and simply cannot wait for the next update!
Author's Response: I'm glad about the French, Ruby! And thanks for the review and the fellow-author sympathy! *hugs* I already have the next chapter ready for submission. Just polishing it a bit. Truth to tell, it's scary to have such wonderful readers! ^_^
“She’s my fiancée.” Whoa. Merlin’s pants.
Oh my good gods, this made me laugh out loud. The sound was then followed by a hearty, "Oh snap!". A bit of foreshadowing, perhaps? ;)
Absolutely adore Lucie...What a charming little girl! Madame La Mott, on the other hand...not so charming. But you do her well. A fuchsia suit...ack!
Great chapter, though!
Author's Response: Aww, first review of the chappie! Thanks, Mel! Foreshadowing? Draw your own conclusions. *zips fingers* I agree about the fuchsia suit! *giggles* *hugs*
First, love it!! Just as good as the original, and so captivating! You certainly do Hermione and Draco justice. I love their relationship - it's just the sweetest!! And it seems so natural too. Ah, I just love it.
And black hair? But with the grey eyes. Lovely.
Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: We might be updated at the same time, Mel. ^_^ I'm sooo heartened by this review, coming from a fellow Dramiona addict! *hugs*
i just love your writing! great fic so far, its almost like you have magic embedded in your very writing style! love it. i hope this fic will be a long one, i love the slow progress of draco and hermione, tension and fluff both! ^_^
and oh my! this little girl is a malfoy with shoulder-length black hair?? hm.... who does this remind me of..... ;P
"this is my-- Hermione."
ps. beauty and the beast rocks. seriously.
Author's Response: Thank you, Suika! Enjoy the MNFF Dramiones! *squish* And I agree about Beauty and the Beast. And yep, *giggle* I love that line of Draco's, too! The hair... I had no idea it would get such a reaction from you guys. ^_^ I'll post the new chapter soon as I get down from this mountain I'm in right now.
I love this novel Its wonderful and please I need to read the next chapter or I will burst of being so anxious anyways lovely writing you should consider yourself a writer. Wow you do put great cliffhangers on every chapter, I just noticed!!
Hemione/Draco Fan No=1
Author's Response: Sheni, hi! And thank you for reading. I'm very glad you're pleased! The cliffhangers, I'm soooo sorry! It just helps me pick up where I left off, see. But I'll update soon! October's been a busy month for me. ^_^

Author's Response: aww, thank you so much, anubha! I'll update soon! October's been a crazy month. ^-^ *hugs*
You are such an amazing writer. =]
You really seem to put everything into perspective and give it life; it's very believeable. This story and the first, To Love Life Again, are by far my favorite Draco/Hermione fan fiction that i've read. I find my heart racing and my cheeks reddening as i read, as if i were actually Hermione experiencing the situations and the sparks that fly between her and Draco. I look foreward to your updates in the future and keep up the AMAZING work.
Author's Response: Such high praise, Liz! Thank you! I'm glad you like my Dramiones. Read on! I hope to update soon. I just have some RL writing to deal with first. *squish*
more more! i really like this story and the one that came before it... i decided to comment on them both together since i read them both tonight. anyways, you need to post more soon. i love it... keep up the good work...
Author's Response: Thank you, Laura. Hang in there for the next update. October's a busy month for me. ^_^
love it though.now i know what my friends last name means.
cant wait! :D
Author's Response: Oh, yeah! Hang in there a bit, GF! *squish*
ooooooooo. This is a really good story! I can't wait to read more of it!
Author's Response: Stay tuned, Krystal! Thank you!
Je n'aime pas les cliffhangers! Otherwise, a very good story.
Author's Response: I hate them, too when I don't write them! Harhar! Thanks, Laurikins!
Eeeeeek! What the heck?! Did Narcissa have an affair with Snape or what?! Loved the chapter and the banter atwixt Dur-way-co and My'ermione, you write it brilliantly.
Please please please! update soon!
Author's Response: Eeek! Oh my, Chloe! LOL! See my reply to Ruby below. I didn't see this coming! I was just...well, see next chapter! *giggly squish* And thanks, sis!
Hmm, I like Abraxas. I've never heard that before. Most people assume it's Lucius. Benedetto is good though, it fits Draco just fine :) I loved the chapter. The way you describe their interactions is so sweet. I can't wait to learn more about Lucie and who Narcissa slept with to get that black hair...I bet she's beautiful. Update soon!
Author's Response: LOL! *grabs sides* Oh my Godric, I totally didn't predict this reaction! Narcissa sleeping with someone else! Ooh! *giggles* Thanks for the review, Ruby! Wait for the next update, hon! *hugs*
wow really loved the ending!!! enjoying thr story so much!! keep it up!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, Carrie! xxxx
Nice stroy, and a very funny line about Draco's cardiac muscle. Good work.
Author's Response: That line! *grins* Thanks, Laura!
ahhhh sooo crazy.
hmmm those two should get married then they can get lucie.yep. :D
Author's Response: Thanks for leaving these encouraging words, hon! ^_^ I hope I do this plot wheel justice.
I just loved when Draco and Hermione were told that Lucie would only be able to go live with a "married" couple! I wondered when you would throw that in!
You are doing such a good job of showing how anxious Draco is to meet his little sister! It keeps building and building until you feel like he is going to burst! Poor guy!
I am still really enjoying this story and think you are doing a good job!
Author's Response: *squee* Thanks, Sheila! *hugs* When you have time, can you blurb about this at 3keys? I think you're the only one who has read my story yet among us. ^_^ Thanks a lot! I enjoyed writing these Draco-tenses! Hehe. :)
Author's Response: ooh! 'married, married'!
'...and his cardiac muscle positively dysfunctional.' Loved it. You've gotten me all excited! I had to take a break in the middle of this chapter. This is already much, much better than TLLA (not that it was bad, mind you - I read it all in one night!). I love how you write. It's like reading a romance novel, only better because the characters are so real! I can't wait for an update :)
Author's Response: *hugs* I'm glad you like my writing, Ruby. Update submitted! :)
How can you make Draco emotional but not sappy? It's amazing!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I was worried about that. That's the hardest aspect of Draco to write, isn't it?
Fabulous! I just found this. I had read (and loved) TLLA, and am so excited that you decided to write a sequel after all. I liked the end of this chapter best.
Author's Response: Thanks, Ruby! I'm glad you discovered this one, too!
