Hello there, Tina!

This was such a lovely story. I think the cold, rainy weather I’m having right now makes me more emotional so I really felt connected with Hermione. I love how this was written – a girl realizing how it was the other best friend she was in love with all along. Harry was perfectly oblivious and the state he was in was, I think, perfect. “Hermione knew that he had broken his heart to save Ginny, and that watching her dot was his way of making sure that she was okay, that he hadn’t broken his heart, or hers, for nothing. It was his temporary relief for all the hurt.”I completely adore those lines. It was just so very Harry, the quiet lover.

Hermione’s letter was beautiful. It was full of emotion, understanding, and hope. Her sentiments stayed true to her character. All in all, I just loved the whole story. I wished that there were more memories that you went back to, and more instances where it might have led her epiphany to be a bit more profound. It felt like there wasn’t enough for a reader to be convinced (I wasn’t convinced, sadly). But I enjoyed reading this, and I hope you continue to write more. Your writing deserves to shine through the site. You just need more plot bunnies to drive you there. :D Absolutely adored your story, Tina, and you should know that I don’t ship Harmony. I could probably count how many times I tried to read Harmony by my fingers.

Good luck!

Author's Response: Hey there, Dinny! :) Thanks for the review, I'm really glad that you think it is a lovely story. I'm really glad that you like those lines, those were actually some of my most favourite in the entire story, as well, I"m glad that you like how they portrayed Harry. I'm also happy that you felt that Hermione's letter was true to her character, as that was one of the hardest things to do. Believe it or not, I went back and I read Realization again, and I totally get what you mean. There could have been more memories in the story to make it more realistic. While I am very proud of her logic, her memories could have been more developed. Your last little bit really made my day! I have never been exceptionally proud of my writing, and your words made me feel really great about it, and actually inspired me to work on a one-shot that has been in the works since September. As for the plot bunnies, they are there, but I need the time :P And I don't ship Harmony either, I hadn't read ANY until I wrote this :P Thanks so much for your review! ~TinaMaple

That was so lovely. I hate Hermione and Harry, but it's a mark of how good this one-shot is that I believed it, mainly I think because I can believe Hermione is in love with Harry more than Harry is in love with Hermione. She is so sweet, and I love the way you write her journal entries. They are not over the top (as I think people are prone to make diary entries) and sound like Hermione. It's very touching, without being over the top or unrealistic. It's a really lovely story. Alex x

Author's Response: Thanks so much! (And agreed on the Harry/Hermione thing :P)

I think I said most of what I needed to say in my email to you, but I want to reinforce in your mind how wonderful of a story this is. The ending especially is beautiful. Hermione's letter to Harry actually got me choking up (gosh darn it!). Congrats on your first story validated and I can't wait to see you write many more in the future!

Author's Response: Awww, thanks :) I made you choke up :O You don't know how much that means to me! Thanks for all the help, by the way :)
