omg i was checking the reviews and i just relized i havnt! how bad of me. well anyway i love this i cannot express how much i love this in this little square. please update soon. 10/10
Author's Response: *giggles at your reference to 'a little square'* I feel like that about all my favourite stories! I am glad you're enjoying it, I really am. I've been ill, stressed and bogged down with other deadline this last month - and so Lacrima took a backsteat. I am currently being teased by two morons for liking Harry Potter (they're reading the banner on the top of this page). Such inferior minds they have! Anyway, glad you're enjoying it.
hi another great chapter, i only got to read it now cos i've had exams at school anyway hope the next one will be up soon. thanks
Author's Response: LOL! Well, the next chapter is currently 2,000 words long - I've been sick and had to complete two chalenges by a deadline. The deadline is done so I should be okay to return to my two real fan fictions. In other words, I hope to get the next chapter up this weekend. Thank you for the review! I just hope my temporary writer's block on the last chapter will show
yay! new chapter! sorry, but i'm not a reviewer who writes much. but great chapter!! :)
Author's Response: That is okay - your reviews make me smile just as much! I am glad you're enjoying it. Next chapter should be completed soon
I read your whole story (sorry about not reviewing for each chapter but it would take too much time!). When are you posting the next chapter??? Just a suggestion. Try reading each chapter aloud. You will catch grammer/other mistakes better than reading it silently. Keep writing--I don't think I can stand the suspence!!
Author's Response: Thank you!!! I am glad you are enjoying it, and taht there is actually suspense... I can actually create suspense amidst all the angst? Wow... Lacrima must finally be taking flight! I am currently 2 pages into Chapter 29. Hermione is in an awkward spot so I am going to send Draco in to distract her. Should make for fun writing... I will update in the next few days, hopefully!
*Uh, my last review got sent before I was done writing because of a phone call... *I just started reading yesterday & was unsure that I would like it. I have found my self lost in it as if it were my own life. I don't really care about bad spelling and plot holes, the lack of which are a nice bonus to this story. What drew me in was the fact that this is good story with convincing emotions. *Harry's "defeat" is difficult to understand on a character level. Although I do realize without it there would be no story. *I must confess I knew from the moment I read that Snape was introducing Hermione as his "bride" she would get pregnant. Actually, I would have been disappointed if it didn't happpen. Sex happens when you take two lonely people and stick them in the same bed. *I like that Snapes loyalties are not truely revealed. *I hope you update again soon!
Author's Response: LOL! Don't worry... we've all had weird review blips at times. Thank you for such a lovely review, it has put a smile on my face for today. I can feel myself becoming more inspired to write the next chapter... because I've been putting it off this last week.
I am glad you find the Hermione/Snape element credible. I thought along the same lines as you... two lonely people... trapped in one small room... anxiety and contempt between them... they would either kill one another or have sex and I needed them alive for my story to continue. Hehe! Glad you enjoyed it! Laura xxx
Wow! I just started readin your fic last night & was unsure wether I would
Hey I just finished reading through chapter 28 and omg I love this story!i'm not normally a big fan of Hermione/Snape fics but I can't stop reading this.keep up the AWSOME work!10/10!
Author's Response: Thank you! Hopefully, I will get my muse back soon (she's gone on a week's vacation because I exhausted this last month) and so chapter 29 will be written soon. If you get impatient, nudge me, and I will quicken up. Glad you are enjoying it. Laura xxx
I don't usually go for non-canon fanfics (or Hermione/Snape, to be honest) but this sucked me in right away. You are very poetic in your writing and discriptions, and it paints a beautiful picture of not just the surroundings but the feelings and personality of Hermione as she struggles through her mission. I love this and I can't wait for you to post the rest. I was going to have Voldemort take over Azkaban as well, lol... my fanfiction is set in "real time", however.
Author's Response: Thank you! I am glad you are enjoying it so far. It is a challenging story to write. You have to sit back and think about each event and sort the feelings out in your mind. Although, at times Hermione just writes the story for me.... she takes me on the adventure and I am merely a spectator. I am glad I've won you over into the realm of non-canon ships (they are a lot more fun, in my opinion!) Good luck with your story, I am sure it will be great!
Wow, there was so much to take in there! I almost hate to say it, but the idea of going after the royal family is a good one. Not good because people will die but it is quite clever, especially burning the palace down afterwards, no one will be anle to tell that it is murder. Bit annoying for hermione, she has just made a plan and now she has to think of a new one. Can't wait to see what to see what she thinks up.
Author's Response: It is a bit annoying for Hermione because she hasn't got time to think up a new one... she just has to work with that one, get it into action within the next week and hope for the best. It is even more annoying for Snape because he knows he has to support her now because, despite his great intelligence, hasn't got a better plan! I had to rush the story on a bit, otherwise it could have dragged for 5 chapters unnecissarily, and so that was my answer. Keep tuned... everything is coming to a head!
Thanks for the review! Laura xxx
This chapte opens up so many possiblities. The inner circle going after the crown would wreck havoc! That Snape has to brew the poison is very interesting. I like Bob, just like I like Joe. I hope that they are able to help Hermione. Having the men controlled by something in the beer is also interesting. It makes total sense. Few men never have a drink, and if there is something in it that helps control them and makes it more addictive really explains things. I look forward to what Bob has to tell Hermione about Snape. I know it is hearsay, but it is still information.
Author's Response: *whispers* I haven't quite decided what he is going to say yet. All I know is, it will be good. hehe.
The beer idea came to me in a flash of inspiration! Miss C, my wonderful English teacher, told us for our First World War Poetry topic that many men came back alcoholics from the war... and I just thought 'yes! What an ingenius idea!' lol. Thanks for the review - it has cheered me up because I've been down all day.
00, shivers run up my spine! I thought Hermione already questioned Snape. He has that way to worm around answering questions though, even with truth serum. So, are Joe and Bob both characters from the books or are they new that you've made up? Don't answer that! I think it is safe to assume Snape is for the Harry Potter side, because he is all for Hermione. What exactly is Hermione's plan to turn the deatheaters against Voldemort?...does it have to do with alcohol at all? And pardon me for saying this, but I just don't understand the crime in killing the royalty, besides the fact that they are the national figurehead, kind of like a mascot....I'm being blunt, nm. I'm going to make a guess and say the plans will be foiled somehow. Will Snape change the potion or will he have an antidote ready or something? It would look suspicious if he followed Golpallot's Third Law, but maybe if he had a beazor(what is Snape famous for anyways). Well, I'll let you answer the questions in the next chapters, I don't watn to spoil the story or anything!
Author's Response: Hiya - thanks for the review! He some interesting questions that I will attempt to answer...
I thought Hermione already questioned Snape.
She did - but she only asked him questions that she wasn't scared of knowing the answers of. She fears who he really is. But... Bob only knows what he's heard from hearsay.
So, are Joe and Bob both characters from the books or are they new that you've made up?
Completely made up! I am crap at thinking up names for OC's... Joe and Bob were no exception. I masked my friend to think up a male character's name and he said "Bob" so there we go!
I just don't understand the crime in killing the royalty, besides the fact that they are the national figurehead, kind of like a mascot....I'm being blunt, nm.
Well, I figured that Voldemort would want the present parliament to remain in power, seeing as they were turning a blind eye to all his activities. The last thing he wanted was a new, much firmer and pro-active government to replace the existing one. But I need to create a sense of urgency... and I've been studying the civil war in History... so I though, hey, why not use the crown? I am a royalist - so don't worry, they will not be harmed.
The bezoar idea is really helpful *makes mental note to use a bezoar somehow*
I'm glad you're enjoying it! And don't worry about spoilers... these issues are minor compared to what is coming up!
I just came in, so I'll review the whole story up to this point here. This fanfic has a wonderful plotline. I love how you've created a world that very few people could imagine after Harry Potter leaves Hogwarts, or Hogwarts leaves him. I like the plan Hermione comes up with in this chapter, and I especially like how the relationship between Hermione and Snape has come along. It is very interesting to me to see how Hermione went from calling him "Professor Snape" in her Hogwarts days when he despised her, and she, him, to "Severus" as a true lover. Keep up the good work and I really look forward to seeing the next chapter. 10/10!
Author's Response: Oooooh I new reader! *gets very excited* I am glad you've enjoyed it so much and thanks for reviewing! Yes, the developement of Snape and Hermione's relationship is certainly my favourite aspect of this story. It was meant to be a sub-plot (at the beginning I had no intention of it happening at all!) but they kind of took over... oh well! I am glad people are approving of the plan... it was a "make or break" decision I made. Either it will fail or it will succeed... and the success of part of this story hangs on it. Thank you again! Laura xxx
Another chapter!!! *does small dance to express happiness* The plan should be interesting, so I look forward to see a lot of it in NEAR future... All I have to critisize is your confusion between Occlumency and Legilimency, but I see someone else have already done it. Once again, for the umpteenth time: the chapter was exellent, brilliant! And thank you so very much for the good read!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. The near future... hehe... well I have a new chapter up but I have to take a small break from Lacrima due to other commitments. I hope it won't be longer than a fortnight. Thank you for your support... I hope the next chapter is up to scratch
new chapter!!! woot! woot! wow, thats such a cool plan! i wonder how it will turn out...hmmm. 10/10 of course!
Author's Response: I am glad you like the plan! The rest of this story rests upon that plan *hopes she can pull it off* Thank you for the review!
great story, i wish hermione had fought the curse but like you said she was weak i suppose
Author's Response: Thank you very much for all he extra reviews! Yes, Hermione could have fought it... but... I needed a way to get that wand off her! I am glad you are enjoying it!
its so good that hermione's going to learn occlumency. i love your story, but i still can't exactly work out which side Snape's on, 10/10
i love your story, (i know i say that in a good few of my reviews but i really think its so brilliant) 10/10
another great chappie- you really move the story along and don't let it get dull and drawn out which is wonderful
10/10- again i love your story and think its one of the best here
wow, another really tense exciting chapter, poor hermione. brilliantly written as always
