Sorry I forgot to review the last chapter, I've been a bit tired lately. The story is great, I'm really enjoying it. You've now got me hooked. What's going to happen to Hermione? Will she have to live like that forever? Who is that mysterious young girl? I can't wait to find out.
I will review whenever I can as I continue…
Good start, although I must say that the description of Neville's appearance was truly gut wrenching.
I'm onto the next chapter and will review soon.
Absolutely amazing writing, favorite fan fic!
Author's Response: Thank you!!
I also wanted to add that I was listening to "Set Fire to the Rain" by Adele, and it sort of seemed appropriate to me, for the beginning of this fic. Towards the end, I think, it was more of a "Lovesong" by Adele. (Major Adele phase, yes :P )
Again, loved it, I am still reeling under the effect of The Resilient.
Author's Response: Oooh, I love Adele! Her music does apply to this story pretty well, doesn't it? I actually find myself thinking of Draco and Hermione often when I listen to her stuff. :) Thanks so much for sharing!!
I loved The Resilient. I liked it more than Aversion, it was darker, definitely, more mature. It envisioned a different world, a different course of things. It encompassed growth of characters, the plot wound its way through, filling in gaps wonderfully.
I don't know how to begin complimenting the things I liked about this fic. It is, by far, the best non canon Draco-Hermione story I have read till now. It gripped me, and made me feel the pain and anguish of the characters.
You have characterised them really well, kept the old yet brought in changes in personality that such traumatic experiences bring. At a point of time, I didn't even know if they'd have a happy ending, and it made me happy to know that they did, because of all the pain they suffered before. Hermione's pain was visible throughout, but Draco's was more subtle, present nonetheless. You carried forward the ever present theme in Queen Rowling's story, love, and I loved how you conceptualised the bond of love and magic.
It was beautiful, but painful, closer to reality than fluff generally is.
I absolutely loved it. I'll probably go read "Masks" now.
Author's Response: Thank you!! That's some seriously high praise; I'm flattered you liked it so much! As dark as this story was, it was really kinda fun to create such a terrible alternate reality. I had a lot of freedom to let my mind wander to its darkest places. But even through all the misery and pain of life, I believe in the goodness of people, and in love and hope. I'm very glad that those themes came through. Thanks again for reading and reviewing! I've loved hearing your thoughts!!
What a beautiful ending! This person is very satisfied and is going to add you to my favorites? How does that sound?
Author's Response: That sounds wonderful!! Thank you so, SO much for sticking with the story. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!!
Gasp! An unsure ending for us all!!
That was raelly emotional but gosh, do I feel like she did the right thing? Sort of.
Damn! What an ending! Phew, I'm going to keep reading, pardon me, dear.
That was a major shock and I'm so glad that I've kept reading, that was really good! Last thing I would have expected from Voldemort! I am stunned into silence, my lady.
Thank goodness he isn't dead but I won't be properly relieved until I figure out everything that's going on. Oh, and, nice bath scene, way to make a girl blush.
That was a revelation worth waiting for and I must know what's going to happen next! I am redeemed!
I'm way too curious to know what's going to happen next to give up the darkness of the story. Sigh, I've been whipped.
This is getting darker and darker with no hope. Usually I don't read stories where evil wins over good but i will try to finish this one in memory of the first story, which i loved so much.
Things are getting bad for Hermione and I'm worried that this story doesn't have a happy ending at all.
Uhm, does this story have a happy ending at all? My God, things just keep getting worse and worse! Not sure how much more I can stand but I'll try to read more.
Ha! Revenge! How someone can still be such a giant prat is beyond me, but anyways, I liked it and such.
I wish Hermione would kill Draco, I really do. I'm still very mad at him.
I wonder if Draco is planning on getting killed or something. Its weird, but my thoughts keep going to that direction but I don't know if i care or not.
