OH PLEASE, you've GOTTA make a sequel! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I love this! And you could totally do so much with it!
Author's Response: Haha, as of right now, I'm more focused on a few other pieces, but this is one I'll definitely consider coming back to. It does have a lot of potential! Thank you again for your kind words!!
I usually don't review, which I'm ashamed of. But I LOVE your writing... I do yearn to read more of it! Please keep posting, I know things are busy, but I'm always impressed with your take on the Draco/Hermione relationship. Thanks
Author's Response: Thank you!! I will definitely keep posting. I have a few projects I'm working on now - you haven't seen the last of me! ;)
I absolutely LOVE your work!!! The first time I saw this fic in the 'recents' list, I almost jumped out of my chair in excitement! "Aversion" and "Resilient" are my absolute favorite fics and I cannot wait to see where this one goes. Great work!!!
Author's Response: :D It's still hard for me to believe that I have fans - hahaha. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing; I'll try to update soon!
wonderful story! cant wait for the next chapters!
Author's Response: Thank you! I've updated today, so read away! :D
Just caught up full now - this chapter was well written too, what with Hermione's reluctant trust and Draco's desperation to protect his parents. It's sort of like they're trying to figure each other out and I really enjoy the way you did it - especially the last moment at the end where Hermione grabs his hand.
As a side note, I also like Ginny in this chapter - how she's not letting Harry control her just because he said he didn't want her to fight without him there. I think it's true to her character as we've seen it throughout the series.
Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: I'm glad Ginny was on point for you. I haven't had too much opportunity to write her, so this was rather untested ground. And yes, Hermione and Draco are kind of dancing around each other at this point. Neither really wants to trust the other, but each has something the other wants. Thanks so much for reviewing!!
Great start - I'm a big Dramione fan and I do enjoy Draco redemption fics, so this is definitely heading in the right direction. You've written the contrast between Draco's confusion about doing what he feels is best for his family and his nagging conscience really well.
The dialogue (or notes) between them are well done and I like that Hermione didn't tell him what her memory is - though, I'd like to know!
I'm looking forward to reading more - I'm a big fan of your work, so I'm sure this will be just as brilliant as always.
Author's Response: When I first started writing this little ficlet, I intended to just keep it to this one chapter. I didn't want to write any spoken dialogue at all. But then the story took off, and spoken dialogue became necessary. :) I think Hermione's best memories involve her time at Hogwarts with Harry and Ron. And not the times they were in mortal peril, either, but the innocent, happy times. I see them as a kind of montage, flashing through her mind, and her being able to pull strength from them. I think she'd have trouble focusing on just one; she's a forward-thinker, and would probably skip quickly to whatever tragedy followed that burst of happiness. And I'm so glad you're liking this so far, and that you're already a fan! Hopefully I won't disappoint. ;) Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!
