Welcome back! As glad as I am to see an update, I'm saddened by the idea of only having a few chapters left. I'm sure they'll be an excellent conclusion to the adventure you've shared with us.
Congratulations on all the life changes. I hope things have settled down enough for you to start enjoying them.
Author's Response: Thank you! The life changes have been very fun so far, and I'm excited to get into the groove of things. :)
yay you're back!! I love where this is going and I can't wait to read the next chapter (although I'm sad it's almost over b/c I love this story) update soon!
Author's Response: :D Thank you!
And the plot thickens again! Love this story!!!
Author's Response: :) Thank you!
Absolutely brilliant. By the way, Voldemort's knowledge regarding Cortes really made my day! The depth to which you have taken this plot seems unimaginable, yet so real.... The fountain of youth? So ingenious. And yet Voldemort is still in character... Love it!
Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm glad I got Voldy right!
i miss youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
hahah "his erection pressed into her lower back", best line of the whole chapter, made me laugh. lol, can't wait till the next one!!
Author's Response: Uh, thanks? Lol.
Aww come on, it's been over a month now, I'm dying for more :). Not trying to rush, just showing my anticipation.
This was an amazing chapter, and I'm dying for more!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Give me more!!!!!!!!! Sex scenes please!
Author's Response: LOL! One track mind much? ;P
I'm speechless. Your writing is horrifyingly engaging! I have just spent the last couple of days reading both An Aversion to Change and The Resilient whenever I was able to, and could hardly think of anything else! I've been reading on the bus, in bed, at school... (So much for paying attention in class).
Anyway, I guess I should have written a review earlier, but this is my first review ever, so I guess you can say I was a bit scared, and too excited about reading the next chapters to do it on any of the former ones. Also, I originally signed up for this site just so I could read it. But now I'm kind of addicted to the site.
I absolutely loved An Aversion to Change, especially the fact that the relationship between Draco and Hermione evolved so slowly. I hate it when dramione pairings rush everything and they suddenly love each other after a few paragraphs, that's not logical
Oh, and I also love how you capture Draco and Hermione's personalities perfectly. Towards the end of an Aversion to Change, I was getting suspicious against Draco, but I kind of denied it. And then he betrayed her! It was a brilliant twist of the story, still it broke my heart. I tried just reading the alternate ending without starting on the Resilient, but it just didn't seem right, so I had to go on, and I don't regret it. Even though it made me a bit frustrated at times I still loved it. And I still do, because even though it's dark and gory and everything seems hopeless at times, you still manage to make it beautiful. And the end of this chapter was great! I can't wait for the next one.
Thank you for being an awesome author and for writing this brilliant story!
And please excuse me if my English isn't as great, it's not my first language. Love from Norway.
Author's Response: This review was pretty much perfect in structure, grammar, and spelling, so bravo!! The "slow build" kind of relationship is what I love to read, so it's what I like write, simple as that. I'm so glad you've enjoyed both "Aversion" and "The Resilient" - I really appreciate you taking the time to read them. They aren't short! And thanks for the review as well! :D
That was cute as hell.
Ok that doesn't do it justice, it was beautiful. Love scenes have a tendency to be overly dramatic or corny, but yours was just perfect.
Author's Response: Thank you!! I struggled with that scene for a while, so it's nice to know my hard work paid off!
Your story is absolutely amazing - there is no way else to describe it - the end of an aversion to change was mind blowing and I love how the relationship between hermione and draco is back on - I was so scared when Draco almost died! I love your writing and really hope this story gets updated quickly, as I am absolutely hooked :)
Author's Response: Thank you!!
omgosh i'm so excited about the update!! And ahhh, I love the romance scenes between Hermione and Draco...awww :)
I almost freaked out for a second there when I thought he was going to die...
I can't wait to see where this goes!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it! Thanks for the review!
Yay! Good chapter can't wait to see how it continues.
Author's Response: Thanks!!
As always I wasso excited when I saw that you got to update. This chapter just may be one of my favorites so far. The way that you can take such powerful emotions and make them words without losing any depth is absolutely phenominal! Keep up the fantastic work and can't wait for the next update!!!
Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it!
Brilliant. Specially the end, loved it. Can't wait for next chapter, what's gonna happen ? , keep goin. You're my fave.
Author's Response: Thank you!! :D
Wow. This chapter was nothing short of brilliance! I love how the story is progressing. I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but you are definitely a master of the slow yet steady pacing when it comes to this story. I was ecstatic to finally see Draco and Hermione reconcile. Hermione tending to his wounds and the whole bath tub scene was great, incredibly intimate and maybe a little erotic but all done very tastefully. I really enjoyed this, as I have done all the other chapters, and can't wait for more. I'm already getting sad at the prospect of it eventually ending. I'm hoping that won't be soon though *fingers crossed*
Author's Response: Thank you!! Tasteful eroticism - it's not often you see those words combined! I'm glad I could manage, however, as their coming together really did need to happen. ;) And this story has about five more chapters, possibly less depending on my edits, so... yeah! Soon but not too soon, and I have some great surprises in store! Thanks again!!
*Fans self* Oh gosh! That was certainly...errr...adult. As much as it embarreses me to admit it, it would be unacceptable if I didn't tell you how amazing that was. Though I was a teensy bit worried we were about to venture into smut land, I'd say the Professors rating on this story is well deserved but not over stepped.
I was about to end my review but then I remembered the chapter was longer than those last few paragraphs.
I was seriously worried about whether Draco was going to die but I suppose at the same time I knew he wasn't going to because then this story would essentially be over (don't even THINK about letting Hermione live alone! Either they both die or neither of them die.) But yeah! It was an amazing chapter and I'm amazed that you were able to incorporate so many different emotions in such a short chapter and make it seem natural. Can't wait for the next!
Author's Response: Ah, yes. I was tempted to venture into smut-land but didn't for two reasons. First, I'm terrible at writing it. Whenever I try, it feels forced and fake and awkward and generally makes me feel uncomfortable. Second, while I think smut is fun to read when done correctly, I think sex is more romantic and meaningful when expressed through intimacy. Anybody can figure out the mechanics of it, but the feel is much more difficult to capture and therefore more fun to write. ;) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!!
Your writing style is very unique. i usually dont like dark stories and yours is very very dark i still like it. you have kept both the characters real and consistent... update soon
Author's Response: Thank you!
This is most definitely the best chapter of this fic, and this is the best fic I have ever read. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee give us more!
Author's Response: Thank you!!!! :D
