the entire chapter shows up bold on my computers. i checked on like three haha, but it was, as said way back in August, a bit hard to focus on..

absolutely fabulous (: i'm actually really enjoying this fic! keep it up! i definitely will be reading more of this.
Author's Response: Oh awesome!! It\'s fantastic to know you\'re enjoying yourself. Makes me feel good that i\'m somehow entertaining someone *smiles happily*
Very cute, but the ending is kind of confusing and abrupt; I wish there was more!
Author's Response: Lol and there will be more...promise! The next chapter will explain what in the world was going on in Hermione\'s head, so it\'ll clear up all the confusion =D Sorry \'bout the ending - I hope it wasn\'t too confusing! Glad you liked the chapter overall...!
Summary: Draco Malfoy and Pansy Parkinson were destined to share a privileged life until the devastating circumstances of their sixth year at Hogwarts tore them apart. Five years later, they separately strive to come to terms with the past and proceed with a life they did not expect…alone. Pure & Proud is presented through alternating chapters of Draco's brooding journal and Pansy's idiosyncratic diary.
~ Pansy Parkinson is written by Sea Isle Witch ~ Twenty-two year old Pansy seemingly has everything a young witch could desire; yet she struggles to build a life for herself independent of her pure-blood family's expectations and without her one true love. From the pages of her private diary, Miss Parkinson shares a précis of the past five years and then gives us a glimpse of her current challenges.
~ Draco Malfoy is written by Desslok and Sea Isle Witch ~ After spending a year on the run and then a year in Azkaban, Draco Malfoy was expelled from England by the Ministry of Magic. He spent the last three years travelling the Continent until he realised it was time to come home. Mr Malfoy discloses his journey back from exile, beginning with a statement to the Ministry of Magic in November of 2002. Complete!
Evil cliffie. Evil. ^_^
Bad Draco! Bad!
I would not like my review to be deleted for use of profanity in describing exactly what I would like to do and say to Mr. Smith at the moment, so I shall just say you are both wonderful authors.
Author's Response: *is laughing hysterically* Thanks for reading! - Susan aka Sea Isle Witch
Oh man, Zach the lying cheat is at it again. And Pansy is falling for it. No!
The format of this one was hard to read for me, just to let you know. Great story!
Author's Response: Ah, thanks, RavenclawsLost Diadem, for telling me. I\'ve just fixed it. Hopefully there won\'t be any more like that. I hate to think of you reading my story with formatting gone awry! - Susan aka SIW

Will he be able to find the strength within himself – the Power the Dark Lord Knows Not – in order to succeed in vanquishing Voldemort? And…can he do it and still get the girl? Join Harry and his faithful friends on their quest to finally defeat a Dark Lord.
i really like your portrayal of malfoy. it's kind of sexy... (:
umbridge. no freaking wayyy. that came out of nowhere!
this is so DH compliant it's not even funny! you are amazing.
Summary: Draco wanted to get away. He needed to get away from all the things that reminded him everyday of the mistakes he had made and the one he had lost. He found the perfect spot too, a small town in Wyoming, USA, a place called Nowhere. A perfect name as far as he was concerned. Magic, fate has a way of finding you no matter where you go though.
Wonderfully written and full of suspense. Very interesting story, I loved the romance, but I'm overjoyed that the romantic parts didn't overshadow the plot like many fics I've read. Quite balanced, great job.
Author's Response: Thanks
Summary: Set Post-Hogwart's, Voldemort has been defeated and the Wizarding world has returned to normal - well, as normal as Wizarding worlds could be. Hermione has a job at Gringott's, the Wizarding bank, but what will happen when an old enemy turns up as a colleague?
Great beginning, I'm just a little "iffy" about H/Hr.
I think I'm in love with Draco Malfoy. Again. Damn.
Drunken Narcissa, gotta love it. Onward with the reading now...

It's the one thing everyone must do. You can't avoid it, you can't bargain with it, you just do it. It hurts sometimes, hell, it hurts most of the time, but it's also the most natural thing in the world. One of those rare things that makes us human.
This story is included in the Epilogues story arc, however it is a side story that can be read at just about any time. it is most favorable, however, to wait until reading Epilogues Part I for certain thematic reasons.
I am in awe by the emotion you cn evoke from yor words. This is my favourite story of yours as of yet and I am readily typing this review so I can read your other stories! You made me laugh, but mostly you made me cry. Evoking such a reaction from someone like me is a gift. You have a way with words and write dialogues, monologues in Harry's case, particularly wonderfully, if you ask me. Thank you so much, Grimmrook.
Author's Response: No, thank you. Actually, you're still reading rather early in the progression, and therefore I think, no, I hope you will continue to be pleasantly surprised beyond this story. In any rate, I thank you very much, and hope you'll finish the rest of the arc and come join me on my website where I'm already four chapters deep into a totally original story.
Summary: The war is over, and Voldemort is dead, but the aftermath isn't what Harry had intended it to be. Amid feelings he himself cannot explain, he flees to Muggle London. Can he overcome his inner demons and lead something other than the shadow of a life his existence has become?
Actually the third story in the Epilogues story arc. If you have yet to do so, please read Right Here and One Good Day prior to reading this. Upon completion of this story, you can move on to Epilogues Part II.
You are a terrific author and I'm so glad you're sharing your gift with this community. Absolutely breathtaking.
Author's Response: I thank you very much, I truly appreciate it. I'm not sure breathtaking is the right word, but if you insist... Actually, the funny thing is, you, and another reader, have yet to make it through the last two stories which I feel were my best work here. In any case, I hope to hear from you soon, and see ya on my website. Thank you again.
Summary: A man from Interpol comes to question Harry Potter as part of a murder investigation. How will Harry react? And how will this affect his search for Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes? Plus, the question we all want answered: What will happen with Ginny?
This story picks up immediately after HBP, and is very slightly AU. But hey, aren’t they all?
she will forever be known as "towel girl" too... shame... hahahaha great creativity and writing style. and also towel girl... that goes without saying though... (:
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, everybody loves Towel Girl, don\'t they?
is dung going to be the new teacher!? oooooh i hope i'm right...
Author's Response: You know, THAT would be interesting. You\'ve managed to come up with an idea that I\'ve NEVER seen in fanfiction before.
ooooh jarius and aberforth. i was totally wrong, but i like your staff appointments better.
Author's Response: Thank you! Althought Dung would certainly have been an... interesting choice. ;-)
