Chapter: Chapter 8: Malfoy Manor

I did not expect the story to go this way...I am loving it!! I was on the edge of my seat reading it. I can't wait to see how their relationship is going to develop!! The detail you put in your chapters is fantastic you really set the scene and you can feel the emotion from each character.

Author's Response: Oh my goodness, thank you hunny!! I really try to infuse every chapter with realism, concerning believable emotion and reactions from the characters. And I also want to take the reader right where the action is, so they can clearly visualize the scene. Thank you for letting me know that my efforts are paying off! Draco and Hermione's relationship builds very slowly, but I feel that this is necessary. There will be even more of their relationship in the sequal (currently in the works!). I am so curious as to where you thought the story might have gone...if you want to, email me at and let me know what you thought! Thanks again for your lovely review- I really appreciate your comments! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 8: Malfoy Manor

EEEE!!! I can't wait for the next one!! This is the best story i've read so far!! It's great. Absolutely wonderful,

Author's Response: Oh my gosh, thank you! That's a HUGE compliment, and I can't tell you how much it means to me!!!! I've loved writing this fic. Now I hope you (and everyone else) won't hate me, but the next chapter pulls away from D and H and goes back to her parents and the Ministry and the Order of the Phoenix. It's necessary, but it means you have to wait until the next chapter to get back to Malfoy Manor. Please don't kill me, and please keep reading and reviewing! It's like a shot in the arm of sunshine!!! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 8: Malfoy Manor

I really like the fact that you kind of get to know Draco more, about his life outside school and I like the way you potrait him. I have always had a fascanation about him and the way you describe him and his agony about hte choices he make is almost exactly how I have been picturing him. Brilliant :D keep up the good work ;)

Author's Response: Oh, God, thank you! You have gotten EXACTLY the point of my whole story!!! I've always felt Draco was a sympathetic character, and I wanted to look under that veneer of arrogance and entitlement. Inside, I always thought he was overwhelmed by the pressure he was under just by being a Malfoy. Oh, please please keep reading and let me know what you think- I was thrilled to read your review because you got into the heart of the story. Thanks sooooo much! Luv, Stef:)

Chapter: Chapter 8: Malfoy Manor

O.O please, please keep the chapters coming!!!! I have to know what happens!!!!!!! Also you have a knack for cliff hangers. :) it is both wonderful for suspense but torture to the waiting reader. :/ please update soon! PLEASE!!!

Author's Response: I know- I keep doing that pesky cliff hanger thing!! I am so sorry; I don't actually set out to do it; it just seems like that's how my writing brain works. The good thing is that the whole story is already written, so I will NOT leave you hanging! I'll get Chapter 9 submitted immediately and as soon as it's validated it'll be up. Thank you soooo much for staying with me. PLEASE keep reading and reviewing- it makes my day!!! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 8: Malfoy Manor

Aw, I know I shouldn't feel sorry for Draco in this chapter - but you really conveyed how conflicted he was throughout. Bellatrix's manipulation of Draco was very well done! It's going to be interesting to see how Hermione begins to forgive him for that...keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Thanks sooo much! Hell, I feel sorry for Draco in this chapter, you go right on ahead. I feel a little more sorry for Hermione of course! I'm glad you enjoyed the Bellatrix manipulation- she's a very powerful witch, and that's one reason why her evil is so potent- her bloodlust knows no bounds. You'll see that in the next few chapters. I'll put chapter 9 in the queue right away!! Thanks again, Alice- by the way, you know I love your fic too! Luv, Stef :)

Author's Response: Tee hee! Things are not looking to good for Hermione. And how will Draco react? Chapter 8 is already in the queue, so hopefully it will be up in a few days. Thank you so much for commenting- it really really makes my day. Please keep reading and reviewing! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 7: The Snatchers

Oh, my God, its excellent! I am going to keep reading! My eyes are popping out of my head!

Author's Response: Eeeep! I know- what a place to stop the chapter! I'm so mean. ;) I have the next chapter already in the queue for validation, so hopefully it'll be up very soon. And just to let you know, the entire story is already written, so I won't leave you hanging in the middle of the fic somewhere. I am so looking forward to your review of the next chapter- thanks for all your wonderful words, hunny!! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 6: Two Different Lives

Excellent chapter! I'm not feeling sorry for Malfoy as much as I am for Hermione, darn you!

Author's Response: Glad you liked it!! Hermione goes through a lot in this fic, but I promise you that, as the story progresses, you'll feel equally sorry (if not more so) for our sweet Draco! Rough times are ahead, and times like those can make or break a person. Will it make or break them? Keep reading! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 5: Friends, Foes, and Festivities

I love the transitions and the differences of the Christmas parties, though I will have to say that I would be at the Weasleys faster than the speed of light.

Author's Response: Yeah, I'd be hanging with the Weasley's too! This was one of my favorite chapters to write, even though I kept choking up as I wrote Neville's Christmas. Thank you soooo much!!! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 4: The First Training

Poor Draco! But, this si exactly how i would have imagined his so-called training. Very well, done.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you feel that way! I firmly believe that Draco never really wanted to be a Death Eater- it was more out of wanting to please his father and fear of what would happen to him if he said no. Thanks again, sweetie- you have no idea how amazing it feels to have you review each chapter- I am so happy, and grateful!! Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 2: Plans for the Night

Whoa! Got me blushing, girl! Anyway, excellent chapter, sad that he has to resort to this sort of thing though, the poor thing.

Author's Response: I was totally blushing when I wrote it! Thanks so much for the compliment, too! I know, our poor Draco- he's a very sympathetic character to me. Luv, Stef :)

Chapter: Chapter 7: The Snatchers

Yay for Hermione being at Malfoy Manor! Probably not great for her, but I''m looking forward to some Hermione/Draco interaction. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review, and thanks for hanging in there with me for some Draco/Hermione stuff. It really builds slowly because I don't want it to be like he sees her and now they're in love with each other and blah blah blah. It WILL happen, I promise! Keep reading and reviewing! Luv, Stef :)

When are you coming up with a new chapter? It's a riveting tale....nicely written, good flow of story. Im on pins andneedles waiting! ;)

Author's Response: Eeep! Thank you soo much!! I'm so very glad you like it. The whole story's actually been written- finished it last week- but I have to get each chapter Beta'd and validated. I have chapter seven in the queue!! Thank you for the feedback on the actual writing as well- it's such an encouragement. Keep watching for Chapter 7, and let me know what you think of it!!

Chapter: Chapter 4: The First Training

I loved this chapter, it shows nonmatyer how we try to bury the want for it we are constantly seeking our parents praise and approval. One quick not though, Lucius was not in school when Snape developed sectumsempra. He was a prefect when Snape was a first year so we would have been graduated.

Author's Response: Thank you! That's exactly what I wanted to portray between Draco and his father. I'm glad that it came across! Oh, and thanks for the note on Lucius and Snape- after doing a little more research, I discovered my error. I still assume that, at some point, Snape's curse would have become a Death Eater weapon used by all. I appreciate you pointing it out! Please continue reading and reviewing! Luv, Stef :)

EPIC!!!! Great detail, interesting plot. Im rather lacking in creativity today sooo, thats all I can really say...

Author's Response: THANK YOU!! I've never been epic before! *runs around doing a happy dance*. I'm so glad you like the story- it means a lot to hear your words of encouragement. Feel free to make me feel like a queen after every chapter! ; ) The plot's about to get even more interesting... Luv, Stef : )
