I think you're the author and your reasons are just to me for what you're trying to accomplish. As a reviewer, I think the less you give from Ron and Harry's point of view goes along with the narration of the story. I think it parallels why Hermione keeps protecting them or remaining loyal to them, and why Draco keeps questioning them. It's all about how Hermione perceives them and the person she is. I don't really see Harry or Ron's perception relevant to the story you are telling.
If you do reveal anything about what Ron and Harry think (not what they are doing), then it should definitely be in a conversation between them and Hermione and maybe Malfoy.. but not anytime soon. But that's just my opinion. =)
Author's Response: Thank you for your opinion :D And yes, the next part is ready.
This is what you get when you leave the brightest witch since Rowena Ravenclaw to her own devices ...
I really like the way you handle the psychology and characters of your personages, their development, their interactions, the dialogues, it is so compelling.
You have the most wonderful Hermione of all writers of fan fiction, and your Draco is not bad at all either!
A great new chapter in one of the best pieces of fan fiction on my favourite JKR character, Hermione Granger, all over the net!
Keep writing like this, Ruby, and please try to answer the private mail I send you a while ago.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Reviews like yours always brighten my day :D What's a good story without character development? I'm glad you're enjoying it so much!rnrnI never received a PM from you, else I surely would have responded. If you sent it while the system was all wonky it may have not gone through. Send it again, or, if you like, message me on AIM (mrsandreamalfoy) or Yahoo! (la_rubinita).rnrnThanks again, and have a good day!rnrn~Ruby
Great chapter! I personally would love to read a one-shot from either Harry or Ron's point of view. I really enjoy reading each chapter of this fan fic. :-)

Oh my, look what the DOG dragged in! Anyways...my mouth is hanging open in appraisal and surprise at your ending. And it shall stay that way 'till you write something crappy. Which means that It'll stay like that for a VERY long time. I better get some braces! I LOVED the fight. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT. Wait...did I meantion that I loved it? Anyways, I did. Keep 'em coming, sister! The chapters, I mean. Your violence rocks too, though. Maybe you should write more violence...*hint,hint* Waiting with an ounce of patience for you next chapter, and/or story.
Author's Response: Thank you, darling! I always love getting reviews from you... they're so few and far between. But enthusiastic. I can't fault you there :D I'm glad you liked the fight, and the violence; it's always easy for me to write it. You know the status on the next chapter, so keep your shirt on ;)
rnrn~AM *wink wink*
This is one of the few Hermione/Draco fictions that stand out to me. You made this less then likely pair work wonderings, so congratz for creating a outstanding fiction. I hope to see another chapter up soon.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! I sent chapter thirteen to my beta this afternoon, so it will hopefully be up quite soon :)
You might not be J.K.R. but you are brilliant!! I loved this story from the beginning. You are very creative, I can't wait for the next installment!
Author's Response: That is such a huge compliment! Thank you so much. Chapter thirteen is coming, promise :)
wow, great chapter. can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm working on it :)
i love how this story is turning out, by far my fave fanfic! cant; wait for the next installment
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm working on it :)
I have to say, I doubted whether or not Dramione was a good ship in the past, but you've converted me!!!!
This story is brillient and beautiful and just amazing!
Update soon. I'm adicted.
Author's Response: Yay! I've converted another to the cause! I'm glad you've enjoyed it, and the next installement will be out as soon as I can finish it :) Thanks so much for reviewing!
Author's Response: Thank you. I hope you enjoy the rest :)
Hello there, csl. I just thought I'd come here for a minute to...oh, I don't know... review...? Yeah. I think that's the evil word. Anyways, I loved the cut-in dialog. It was very Hermione to just go on and on and very Draco for him to keep calm and then snog her socks off so that she would shut up. Again, good job. The "what are you afraid of" was genius, and it made sense. The thing I liked about it and that made it not seem cliche, was the fact that you managed to keep both controversial characters in character throughout the discussion, which is rarely seen. Believe me, I would know. And then you kinda surprised me when Hermione threw herself at Draco, I siriusly thought she had slapped him. The "spitting over the table" thing was funny, and Draco's response even more. You used some of our quotes, I see. Good thinking, bad quotes couldn't come from conversations as intellectual as ours. * cough* I have a good quote for you, and no, I didn't get it from Harry Potter! It's from "Crispin" I've wanted to tell you about it for months now, since I read the book, but my lazy bum forgot. Now, I would criticize the way you said everything about the horcruxes so fast, but I don't think I am in a position to criticize how fast things go. I do hope you don't live up to your name, csl. Otherwise I'll be pretty dead by sundown *creepy music starts* Now, I bid thee goodbye. There is a chocolate swiss roll waiting to have my complete attention. You do know how jealous those get. Maybe not.... *hides* Sauda was awesome, though I still can't properly pronounce her name. The Death Eater meeting was ok, though before you do a more intense one, try to get your hands on one made by Jo, It'll certainly help. I really did like the whole " for Draco" thing. For the fact that is a very sad yet completely wonderful thing for a mother to sacrifice herself for her child. Especially if your child is Draco Malfoy, who is too hot to die. Now, for real, goodbye. Looking forward to the next chapter,
Author's Response: Well, well, well, look what the cat dragged in...*ducks* It's a happy Friday present :) Thanks for all of the positive things you said in the first part. For the rest: I thought Hermione slapping Draco here would be a bit counterproductive, and I rather liked how that whole scene played out (and I should, considering how long it took for me to complete it). As for Hermione's speedy exposition concerning the Horcruxes: 1. Draco already understood what they were because he'd been reading through her notes and such for several hours, and he's a smart guy. 2. We get into that in much greater detail later on in the story, so I felt that it was unnecessary and cumbersome to include it at this point as well (plus there wasn't enough space to include it and Narcissa's section in its entirety. Sauda: sah-OO-dah, and I'm glad you liked her. I'm rather fond of her myself. Death Eater meeting: You know that I don't have any of the books and I have an eight dollar over-due charge on my library card, but I don't think it was too bad. It could have been a bit more intense, perhaps, but the focus was more information gathering (and Lucius killing...attempted). And yes, Draco is too hot to die, but I am most definitely not saying one way or the other. That would ruin the suspense. *grins evilly, cowers behind sofa and hopes you don't adopt my new nick-name*
Go eat your swiss roll (I confess, I haven't had one since I was like...ten?), and I imagine a jealous swiss roll is not a pretty sight. Thanks again for reviewing :) I'm working most diligently on thirteen (what did you think of the section I sent you? I haven't spoken to you since Wednesday...) and I'll get it up as soon as I can. Have a good weekend, darling!
Hurry up with the update!!! I'm so engrossed in this story, I'm dying for the next chapter. Keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad you're enjoying it so much. I'm almost finished with chapter thirteen, so hopefully it won't be too long before I update :)
This is an AWESOME STORY!Please make chapter 13 as quickly as you can!*pulls out chainsaw*Or else....*pulls on cord and laughs maniaclly as I slice a couch in half*
Author's Response: Lol, as humourous as the thought is, destroying your house won't make it come any more quickly :) I am almost finished, though. Thanks for reviewing, and I'm glad you're enjoying it so much!
I love this story. Update soon!!! :]
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I'm almost finished witht the next chapter :)

Author's Response: lol, now, don't do that! I promise thirteen is coming soon! Thank you for reviewing :)
This fic is amazing... I've been reading the whole thing straight through for the past 11 hrs! can't wait for your next chapter. It's the first fic I've read which has balanced Dramione with the war!
Author's Response: Eek! Thank you so much! Wow, I truly admire your determination... this fic is almost 100,000 words. Impressive. I'm glad you like it so much :)
I don't even know where to begin. I love this, it is amazing in the lest. I hope you continue wrting the next chapter, I am so hook.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! Chapter thirteen is already about halfway completed and I'm hoping to have it finished within the next few days. I'm glad you're loving it!
oh i just love it! I can't wait for the rest! But at the same time I think im going to hate it when its over. Its so sweet. So whats the next step?
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I'm really glad you like it so much. I think I'll hate it when it's over, too.
As for what's next...Narcissa undertakes a new mission, Draco and Hermione begin training and working on the whole Animagus thing, and, if there's enough space, we might learn a bit more about Absalom or have a confrontation with Harry and Ron. I can't decide which just yet. Thanks again!
i need the rest of the web book..you did a very good job.. you have to hurry and finsh it. thanks megan
Author's Response: Hehe, web book :) That made me giggle. Thank you for reviewing! I will finish this, but it's going to be a while. We're hardly halfway through. I hope you stick around for the rest!
