This was just beautiful. :) Great job.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it :)
Lovely story. You brought out how hard it must be for muggle-borns, and especially someone as logical and reasonable as Hermione who likes to find answers.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Yeah, like most kids are more accepting of weird stuff because that's how kids are, but for someone like Hermione who, like you said, loves knowing exactly what is going on, it must have been pretty difficult.
You've constructed a very thoughtful, tender story of Hermione's relationship with her dad centered around the emerging magic we've all come to love about her. I wish you would have taken the story further, providing the conclusive meeting with Professor McGonigal and subsequent resolve to Hermione's quest to know "why." That being said, this brief look into Hermione's heart-wrenching pre-Hogwarts days stands alone as a reminder that no one is without personal doubt on the cusp of potential greatness! Good job.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Yeah, the story would have had much more fulfilling ending if there was something like that, haha. I might write something along those lines in the future though, to put poor little Hermione out of her misery. But yeah, thanks again for reviewing :)
Very good. It might be nice to do a follow through story at Christmas time in her first year at Hogwarts.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you liked it! I might do some kind of follow up story, possibly that Christmas or her receiving her letter, just so there's a happy ending to this other than everyone just knowing it turns out all right anyway. Thanks again for the review :)
Oh, how sad and touching. Really makes you wonder why Dumbledore or someone didn;t visit them before so they could be assured their child was normal :(
Lovely story. I really liked the characterisation of both Hermione and Ben here, and you caught the father an daughter dynamic so perfectly. The phrase 'dear old dad' really caught at me because it's what my dad used to say to me.
Well done on a lovely story. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! I kinda hope after the war with the world being more Muggle friendly they would bring something in like that so this type of thing doesn't happen. Most kids would likely not be too worried, but for Hermione and her love of reason and logic it was probably harder. I'm really glad that you liked the dynamic between the two of them because that was quite difficult to write. Anyway, thank you again for reading!
