Summary: Hermione knows Draco Malfoy - he is arrogant, mean and has been nothing but hurtful towards her ever since the first time they met. Called to testify at his trial, however, she sees something other than hatred in the face of her old nemesis and begins to wonder if there is something she has been missing all along.

Summary: At age eleven, Dudley's daughter receives a letter he recognizes very well. As Sinead Dursley embarks on her journey of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, she strikes up a strange friendship with Lorcan Scamandar. Soon, Lorcan and Sinead rule over a reign of terror at Hogwarts as they subject their fellow students to cruel and dangerous pranks.
The title of this story comes from the poem "Child" by Sylvia Plath. Also, I would like to thank Royari for being an amazing beta.
OMG! i just read the first chapter and my heart was beating out of excitement!!!
i love the idea that it was dudley's daughter!!! that is just too cute...and when the letter came i was like omggggg because not only is it the initial excitement we had when harry got the letter but also like i said the fact that it was dudley's daughter!! way too cute cant wait to read more
i usually only read romance dramione fics...but this captured me :)
if this plans to continue onto her older years then i cant wait for the romance :)
Author's Response: I definitely hope to continue onto her older years, and I do think there will be some romance. I'm glad you like it; thanks for your very enthusiastic review! :D
this is wayyyy too cute!
i kind of feel like the story should just stop in her first yr
but i want it to go on as well
w.e you decide to do im excited
Author's Response: I plan to continue until Sinead is much older (hopefully). Thanks for your review! :)
As a part of his punishment for his part in the war, Draco was sentenced to a year living as a Muggle in the Muggle world. Harry ropes Hermione into serving as Draco's liaison with the Ministry and guide to the Muggle world. Can she open his eyes to the joys of Muggle living or will she Avada him first? Set post-DH, ignores epilogue.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Not all Voldemort’s victims were on the side of right.
Over a year has passed since the Battle of Hogwarts. Families grieve, but their dead are remembered with honour.
For Draco Malfoy it has been a year of nothing. Merely existing, he is bound tightly to his past as if enveloped in a shroud, unwilling to accept help. It takes a chance encounter on a cobbled street to jerk him into the realisation that he cannot go on like this. A chance encounter with the one person who has most cause to hate him.
But shrouds, however tightly bound, unravel.
A huge thank you to Natalie (hestiajones) who put her laminated canon card in jeopardy by beta'ing this fic and being very supportive all the way through.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree, so please don't mistake us. I just like taking the odd liberty (ahem) with her characters (and pairings)
Nominated for two QSQ's in Best Non-Canon Romance and also Best Post Hogwarts story for 2011. Thank you.
wow wow and wow
so touching and such a refreshment from other stories
like i said exaclty the story i like the best
and what makes it a favorite of mine is something i always wanted an author to do but they never did until u and that is bring up his attraction to her while they were at school even though he hated her
thats what got me into dramione's but no story ever mentioned that until u did in chp 2 when u mentioned him remembering a happy girl dancing when he kissed her
sometimes i want draco to be a bit more charming but honestly i dont care this story is perfect i love it sooo much its totally my kind of story omg ur so awesome!
Author's Response: Thank you. Mm, I don't think Draco can me too charming. He's still Draco Malfoy after all - ha ha. Glad you like the story. I will be podting chapter 2 soon. OOOH, and I'm glad you picked up the reference to Hermione in chapter 2, I wasn't sure anyone would. - hee hee. Thanks again ~Carole~
usually i hate unhappy endings, but surprisingly i liked this one...
this was an interesting and different story
like i said before it had exactly what i wanted....i started disliking it when it got too sexual, but i think it really fit
great story and great ending...its so like different im so impressed
the last part is bittersweet and thats what makes us feel bad for draco but also accept the story's ending
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it, despite the sexual bits (unfortunately that's the kind of writer I am and I did put warnings, so hope you weren't too offended). I wanted to write a Hermione/Draco pairing that was plausible, and to be honest, apart from sexual tension I can't ever see them as a longlasting couple, so sex it had to be. Thanks again for the review, I really do appreciate it. ~Carole~
i read the first chapter and i instantly fell in love with it
superb writing, and a great plot, the angst, romance, comfort in each other....this is exaclty the kind of story i love reading and the kind of story i was looking for today and found! what a wonderful surprise...the writing is actually causing emotions within me!
so excited to read the next two chapters and beyond! ur amazing!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I hope you enjoy the rest of the story as much as the first chapter. It was a lot of fun writing it (although some bits were very hard) Thanks again ~Carole~
This Christmas season, Hermione isn't fussed with gifts or wrapping paper. A drunken snog has forced her to rethink her feelings for Draco as she makes the ultimate decision between her mind and her heart.
It's really cute and emotional. But I think it would have been better if you showed a flashback to what exactly happened "that night." It would have made it more romantic. And the ending where they meet could've been more detailed and cute as well.
But overall I thought it was cute and I liked the plot about why she didn't want to love Draco.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review! A flashback would have been nice, I agree. It's just that I wasn't planning to go in-depth with their relationship, as I'm not really a fan of this ship (there are only a few people I would write a Dramione for and Elené is one of them :D). Thanks again for your lovely review! xx Ariana
Summary: It's after the war and Voldemort has won, leaving the wizarding world decimated and all those not of pureblood status dubbed less than human. Hermione must find a way to live in a world that no longer wants her, and when Ginny's youngest child Lily is put into danger, she turns to the least likely person for help and sells herself to the Death Eaters in exchange for saving Lily. Darkfic, post Hogwarts, AU.
omg this is sooo depressing but its soo good i must say im really interested
wow i never read anything like it
Author's Response: thanks so much for checking it out. More soon. :-D
Honestly this story is so good and so well written. You write really well and include just the right amount of vocabulary without sounding pedantic, just the right amount of detail without it being a drag, and just the write amount of plot and emotions. I really really really like this story and that is why I am dying for another chapter. I hope this is encouragement enough just in case you did not want to continue. Please tell your readers when exactly you will be updating the next chapter or if you have the next chapter up on another website that would be awesome as well :) I really enjoyed the depth of everyone's character. And usually Pansy is shown as a bimbo, but I like the fact that she has her own thoughts and insights. Please upload the next chapter as soon as you can!
Author's Response: You have inspired me to check in here. :) Thanks for the lovely review.
Summary: He emerged from seclusion to find acceptance - what he found was her. /post-DH/Draco/Hermione/
Haha I really liked this chapter!
The quidditch match was hilarious! Fabian is so funny and I love his comic releif. hahaha
Draco finally flying was so well done. When he wiped his eyes and pushed back his hair and Hermione stared at him I thought it was because she found him crazy for not repelling the rain. Then you said she looked away and her cheeks were red...so I was like dying and I was like OMG this is like the rain scene from Pride and Prejudice (I'm referring to the movie here lol one of my favourite scenes)! So when I read the first line of the next chapter I died because I was like noooo wayyyy too much of a coincidence haha
Then again the awkward conversation lol I thought was fitting but don't blame me for being a dramione fan and wanting more exchange of words lol...I'm sure it'll come in the later chapters.
And once I figured out Tovey's intentions it was so funny. I'm sure this part wasn't meant to be, but it was funny, and interesting.
wow im actually really interested in this story!
its something different...like ive never seen a plot like this before you know?
I like how you introduced us to the characters before intertwining their lives. I liked that snape's tiger lily represented lily potter...i think how they met could have been written better. I also don't think you should have made The Burrow a less exciting place. I like the humor at the end of chapter 3 as well, and the introduction of the mysterious Fabian. I think you write wonderfully, and in the 1st chapter I felt like you write like Jane Austen. Do you take inspiration from her? At times I felt the writing was a bit pedantic, but who cares right? It's a really good story so far with a promising plot and an amazing author :) I don't like stories where the author makes many grammar, spelling, syntax errors. So I actually really appreciate your writing. I'm excited. Good job and good luck :)
Author's Response: I appreciate your comments. I always feel like someone saying my story is unique is one of the best compliments I could receive. I wanted their meeting to just be awkward and uncomfortable because I felt like that was the most realistic approach. Sorry if you felt I made The Burrow less than exciting, but I after what that family as been through I honestly feel like it would be. And Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors, so I am fangirling over the comparison. Overly detailed is just how I write, blame it on having an English degree, but I feel like the more detail there is the more lost you can get in the story. My priority above all is always proper canon and grammar, so thanks for noticing.
Summary: 'Tis the season to be jolly - or so the saying goes.
For them it is a time for war; a time for battle strategy and constantly looking over your shoulder.
She thinks there is always time for Christmas - the childish part inside of her that still believes in miracles does, anyway. He thinks she's wrong - but then, he always does.
Favourite story of 2013! Ah it was soooo good! The hurt, comfort, so well-written, such detailed emotions, such passion, so consuming! I died! This will be my go-to story for a while--I just know it! Ahhhhh
Summary: Hermione knew she had to try harder, either to heal faster or hide her failing more effectively. She did not understand why the PsychoSocial Healing sessions hadn't worked for her as they had for Harry and Ron. She did not understand why she was still lost, still low, still struggling to breathe, and talk, and see, and live.
This is the best fanfiction first chapter I have ever read. So different and exactly what I needed. I just want to give this chapter it's own award before I move onto the rest of the story! Ugh, so good.
Author's Response: Ah, thank you! The first chapter of any story should suck you in, and that's what I aim for in any fic I write. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
This was great. I absolutely enjoyed the plot, the angst, and the romance.
I wish it could have had a final romantic scene though, haha.
But still, amazing! Loooooved it!
Author's Response: I totally understand your desire for a final bit of romance, but I felt like that would've taken away from the healing that both of them had gone through over the course of the fic. I'm so happy you enjoyed this story. Thank you for reading and reviewing!!
