Yikes! I must say I love that update so quickly!!!
Author's Response: Try to do it daily. Thanks for reading.
Author's Response: Big whoops.
DUN DUN DUN!!!
I was certainly not expecting this to be as overtly negative as it was. Why can't all be well and good in their world? Why do you have to be so mean to us? I'm only joking, since I love all of the awkwardness this whole scenario creates.
Reminds me of a situation I was in that wasn't very different, and I was pretty much in Hermione's shoes (minus the holding a fella's hand part). Most nerve-wracking experience of my entire life, and you definitely pulled that off.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I don't mean to be cruel o my readers, just Jo's characters. :P
As far as the plot goes, this scene was the main reason I paired Hermione and George. Hermione's little slip of the tongue is going to set some things in motion. :)
I know the next chapter will be up soom, nut this needs sorting out.
Author's Response: Well, it takes it sweet time get sorted out, actually. Lucy is a tad stubborn, you know. :p Thanks for reviewing.
Author's Response: That she is. :)
Author's Response: Double-post. Just replying again so it doesn't show up as a new review. Thanks for all the reviews, by the way.
I am now ready to state a few things I love about this fic:
1. The Malfoy family love you're able to display. It's just heart-melting.
2. The dialogue, especially between Harry/Draco and Hermione/George. You're really good at making it swing between teasing, desire, insecurity.
3. The fact that it's semi-fluffy AND cliffhanging, you can't wait to find out what's going to happen next.
Thought I should point out though, that there are some small typos in nearly every chapter. Have you had a beta look things through? It doesn't disturb me that much, I just think it's a shame :)
With that said, I have to say that this was a real positive surprise for me! I've been meaning to give Save Me a chance for ages, but I've had trouble logging in, thus not being able to read P-rated. And now, only 12 hours after I started reading at all, I'm hooked :) You are a GREAT writer, I'm truly impressed by both your seamless plot and the way you write tricky situations with such ease! Good job :)
Author's Response: Wow! Thanks so much for the great, detailed review. You have no idea how much that means. I love all my reviews, but when I get a long, especially well-thought out one, I swoon. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
I love the Malfoys. I really do, even Lucius. I honestly believe that they really love each other and I have a great time writing that. Although it’s kind of hard for me to swallow when I stumble on a fic where they all basically hate each other…
Thanks for the compliments about Harry/Draco and Hermione/George. I didn’t struggle with Harry/Draco. They feel natural to me. By the time I wrote the first Hermione/George chapter, I was ready to scream. I honestly regret doing this pairing, but am glad that most people seem to be enjoying it. I really struggled with it, especially George’s character. That being said, the pairing had to stay because their relationship sets some pretty important plot points in motion. Besides, Hermione needed someone.
Fluffy? I smiled at this. It’s not something people usually say to me. I admit though, there are some fluffy-like parts. Not sure how that happened, really. Not something I normally do.
Ah yes, the typos. I had one other reviewer mention them on FF.net. I’m actually pretty disappointed that they’re there. I normally do a pretty good job with this stuff, but I guess I’m slipping lately. If anything in particular sticks out, please, feel free to point it out and I can fix it. When I get ambitious, I’m going to read through again and look for typos again.
Again, thank you so much for the wonderful review! You really just made my day. *huggles*
Damn it you're good. I never thought I'd believe, much less actually enjoy, a Drarry. But you built this up so good that everything so far has felt perfectly natural. And this chapter just blew me away. I can't believe how well you write their teasing, and their vulnerability. I'm gonna keep on reading now, just thought I'd say that. :P
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Not believe in Drarry, but Drarry is real, I swear! I'm glad you're enjoying the story. You're review means a lot, especially coming from a fellow Slytherin. *hugs*
This is by far my favorite mother/son relationship! Excellent!
Author's Response: Mine, too. Always has been. : ) Thank for the review.
Dramatic. Where has Lucius gone?
Author's Response: I never out-an-out say where Lucius went in the story. So I have no guilt in telling you that he’s at a pub, drinking and sulking. :P
I hope Harry runs :-)
Left me at the edge of my seat again!
Author's Response: *snickers* Harry's fine. He's not home, but Lucius isn't looking for him. He's just having a little sulk. Well, actually it turns out to be a rather long sulk... Thanks for the review.
I really dislike toadface! I suspect George is plotting to get her now!
Author's Response: George may have a little surprise in store for everyone's favorite Toadface.
Author's Response: Snuffles. I'm so nice to these characters, aren't I?
Andromeda has got to change her mind before it is too late.
Author's Response: Maybe,,, You know, I have a few reviewers on FF.net that don't want her to change her mind.
I'm a sobbing mess right now! Brilliantly wrote!!
Author's Response: Awww,,,thanks. I like making people cry with my stories. I don't know what that says about me, though...
Author's Response: Thanks! :-)
Brilliant as always!! Feel better soon!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you!
He blew his own fingers off? Mad!
Author's Response: They're all a little crazy, really...
Ok I have one complaint. Your chapters are too short. You always leave me wanted more, much more. Your redemption is that you post daily. Thanks I really enjoy this story!
Author's Response: Personally, I like short chapters bothto read and write, but I seem to be the only one. Sorry to leave you hanging,but I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I'll try to continue with the daily updates until the story is complete. Thanks for the review.
Love this! You struck just the right tone!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
