Oh My God I soo did not expect Draco to have the curse! What a fantastic twist! And Sinead! I just knew she would have a bigger part to play in all this. Can't wait for the next one.
Author's Response: Thank you :D I'd planned on making Draco a werewolf since before I had a story, and I've been really pleased by how well the bad news has been received by my readers (namely, I haven't received any death threats, thank Merlin). I love Sinead. Originally, she only had a very small role to play as Hermione's friend and confidante, but the more I wrote her the more I liked her. I had to do something bigger with her. Thanks for taking the time to review!
This just gets better and better! I've the Harry and Ron piece and it made me smile in parts. I'm glad they both realise it is thier fault that they have lost Hermione but please, please don't let it be forever. I love the Trio!
Author's Response: The Trio has a hard path, and they'll never be the same, but they won't be hating each other forever (excepting Draco, of course). Thank you so much for reviewing!
Wow, incredible and very intense. You provide such amazing detail while you have so many different and interesting things going on.
It was so sad to read that Draco was a werewolf. Even though it was sad, I thought you wrote it so very well. Especially how Draco handled it when he first realized he was a werewolf. I think it helps that Remus has dealt with this most of his life, hopefully he can help Draco. But it also brings up some big questions...Will Draco ever be able to control the werewolf part? Will Draco be able to turn into an animagus whenever he wants now (assuming he can control the werewolf)?
Hopefully Hermione realizes that she has to keep using her powers. I feel that she will play a big role in the final battle, plus help Draco get through everything.
I absolutely loved how you ended this chapter with Hermione going to Draco. For all the despair in this chapter, I actually felt that it ended on a really good note.
As always, I really enjoyed reading this chapter. I will try and be patient but already I can't wait for the next one!!
Author's Response: You leave the best reviews! Draco and Hermione learning to control these new facets of themselves will be a major part of the chapters to come. They both have a lot of acceptance and work to do. Remus will be there to help Draco as much as he can, too.
I've had that final scene with Draco and Hermione in my head almost since I began writing the story, and it was such a relief to finally put it to paper. And I thought after such an unhappy chapter that they needed a quiet moment. I'm glad you liked it.
Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. There need to be more readers like you!
oh wow. i love ur story and thanx for telling us readers u have not abandoned the story. so many writeers havent updated in so long. good luck o nthe next chapters and tahnx for creting a story that has me anxious for the next! =)
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I'm glad you've enjoyed it so much thus far. I plan to return by the end of the summer.
Wow Wow Wow. Another great chapter.
Love how intune Draco and Hermione are to each other. Even when they fight they are both rational enough and care enough about each other to get past it. There interaction is amazing.
Wonder what Moody's idea is??? Can't wait to read the next chapter!!
Author's Response: *beams* Thank you so much! I hope you like the next chapter :)
By the way, in case you hadn't guessed, I am in love with your story and writing skills. I am so jealous. I hope you might become a published author in the future if you're planning on trying!!
Keep the magnificent chapters coming, m'dear. Mia likes living in Fantasy-World a lot more than in the real world. :)
Author's Response: Ruby much prefers living in Fantasy-World, too :D I am working on an original that I hope to one day publish, but it's still in it's planning stages (sixty chapters and counting *eek*) and, to be perfectly honest, I'm quite terrified of it. As soon as I evict Hermione's voice from my head (or at least get her to tone it down a bit), I'll begin working on it in earnest.
Thank you for your wonderful and enthusiastic support! I've really enjoyed your reviews :)
Oh My. You wrote it. The CURSED WORD that I don't even know how to pronounce!!
I am chewing on one of my rabbits' feet, much to its distress. Sorry Max. I'm just a bit of a hiatus-o-phobic, ever since the site containing my favorite fan fic OF ALL TIME posted a hiatus note as a cover page for the whole site, the author saying she was going on holiday. 1YEAR and a half passed and the hiatus page had still NOT been taken down. No updates concerning her work or even the fact that she might just be still among us. Then the site vanished. POOF! It was gone. Oooh, (suppresses a shudder), bad memories, BAD MEMORIES!!!
However, I trust you a lot more; you reply frequently to reviews which I must say is quite honoring . So I will be strong though these difficult times, and be the Brave Warrior that we all know I am.
With Reverence & Support,
P.S. Sorry about the kooky review. I am in full blast of the 2 week period of exams. Please forgive me. :P
Author's Response: I know how exams go, and understand that kookiness is often the end result (I still don't want to hear certian words left over from my classes). I can, however, promise you that I will be back by the end of the summer whether I am satisfied with my progress or not. By September first there will, at the very least, be a chapter in the queue. And if you have a panic attack at any time, feel free to PM me so that I might reassure you of my continued existence.
Wow, you provide such great detail and have tremendous story telling abilities.
It was sad that Draco and his mother had such a short time together… I’m hoping it is not their last. Also, I liked how Narcissa proved to be very valuable and a lot tougher than others gave her credit for. It was also great for Draco to actually realize he was being hurtful when he thought of leaving Hermione behind. Very smart fellow. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you :) I like Narcissa more and more every time I write her.
Thank you Lily_and_James & Lyr942!!!
How DO you make me feel all squishy inside? Ha! Thanks for that, anyhow, it's quite a nice feeling :P
Keep giving us proof of your undeniable talent!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun writing that scene once it got going. I'm glad you're enjoying it this far :D
I would like to know how Harry and Ron felt after they left Grimmauld Place== they are just such idiots!
Author's Response: Harry and Ron are up in the next chapter. Thanks for reviewing!
Finally! Not that you're late or anything, it's just that the tension is unbearable ;). I adore your Draco character, even though you're on the edge of OOC; but way to go for staying up there!!
You'll hear from me soon,
Emilia (aka Mia)
Author's Response: Thanks :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Actually, I've never read the Twilight series. I've just had a nealy unhealthy obsession with Vampires and werewolves since I was a little girl. I'm glad you liked it!
I love this story so much! Its my very favurite on the web!

This is the first time I have ever reviewed, but I just had to tell you that you have written an incredible story and I really hope you come back to it. I am on the edge of my seat!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I promise I'll come back, more than likely by the end of the summer :D
a hiatus? oh come on - I finally find a good D/H story and you're taking a break...figures...
love the story though!
Author's Response: Heh, you finally get around to reading it and I'm taking a break. Sorry. I'll only be gone for a couple of months, though. Thanks for taking the time to read TBW!
validation can be an uphill battle, nice chapter :)
Author's Response: The mods were really backed up there for a while, but it all worked out. Glad you liked it :)
I need more time to read this...nice chapter!
Author's Response: There just aren't enough hours in the day, are there?
I am so glad I finally took the time to read this - to me, very believable :)
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you finally took the time to read it, too!
