Summary: For the rest of the Ministry, the interdepartmental challenge was merely a failed attempt to restore trust between workers. But for Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger, it was the catalyst for an unexpected relationship built on passionate letters, concealed identities, and secret meetings – and the beginning of an end that neither of them could ever have imagined possible, not even in their wildest dreams.
Post-war. Based somewhat on the story of the Phantom of the Opera. Also contains R/Hr, so don't read if you can't stomach that ship.
Status: Complete. Thanks for reading, everyone!
Ooh. I feel like Hermione's stalking him, real bad. Which is kind of funny because he'll then confide in Starlight about how [Starlight] is stalking him. Keep up the good (strikeout) magnificent work!
Oh shit. Who's going to find it? Ron? Ginny? WELL? Somebody's then going to rip it open, and--nevermind, I should just shut up and read.
Shit. Does that mean he's just figured--no that would ruin the plot too soon. A marvelous author as yourself wouldn't kill it. No, no, of course not...
Yay! They'll reveal themselves and fall in LOOOVE! Sorry, brillant author, you're plot's better than mine. Heheh.
And THEN will they make out? Jesus Christ!
Just another clue!!! He'll know. It's weird, how Draco despises Hermione (not to mention how Hermione loathes Draco) and yet, Draco likes Starlight and Hermione likes Shadow...*heads spins*
^ Which isn't easy, so you must be really really amazing. ....but i already knew that! :D
How's that helping?! DAmn it! Wait--I keep forgetting, smarticle you's got this all figured out. Riight. ;D
=Okay, oddly enough from my complaints, I'm kind of glad he hasn't found out yet, though Ron's jealousy is pissing me off to an unnecessary extreme. He needs to chill, you know? Maybe get punched in the face! :D:D:D
OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD. What's she gonna do now, Hmmm? You know what would really suck and I trust you entirely NOT to do? Have Hermione act to Draco like she does Shadow as opposed to Shadow as she does Draco. Yeah. But I'll shut up now, because you've got it all figured out. ;D
Amy can't be half as fabulous as you, annie. She didn't, after all, write any of your stories, though I adore her for accepting them!
What's up with the lack of snogging? Mind you, it's doing fine on its own and a make-out session would probably ruin the plot, but you know. As an off-hand thing...
Yay! They're slowly falling in loooove! And I know that it's truuue. They cannot deny it, who can see it? Me and you. Oh how they loove....
Sorry. Falling into song again ;D
GASP! SO INTENSE!
Oh god! *ish left gasping for breath*
...which, as I've told you (;D) takes talent.
Rowr! This is completely useless! This son of a bitch can't get any more CLUELESS! What the fuck, don't they realize they LOVE each other? Jeez.
God damn it! Way to break a promise to Ron, you arse! Telling him you'll be TOGETHER FOREVER when this is a fucking DRAMIONE STORY! Jesus! Wow Hermione, you're such a whorey prick lately. Gosh.
Okay I'm waaaay too caught up with this. Thanks for being so amazing you've got be engulfed, annie!
OH FUCK. So now he knows, so Homo-ninny's just got to come to term with the facts, right? Okay. Fantastic. This is coming along nicely, I see. My thanks.
Oh. Poor 'Mione. Loving him. Loving HIM. Loving Shadow, wanting all three. Stupid Draco, being...stupid. Knowing she's both when she thinks they're separate. Just...grr. This reeks. *silently* Please, PLEASE make this work out without anyone getting horribly, irreversibly hurt!
On second thought, Ron's a prat! Why can't he accept that Hermione's got guy friends besides Harry and the Weasleys?
They both want forgiveness, why why the FUCK is Draco such a prat with all this Disapparating shit? Jeez! *cries* Peace and love and a happy ending for all, that what I need, even if it turns half the characters gay.....But I can't have it, which is precisely why I don't want it. It would be horrible and..I'm rambling into nothingness. *sighs and clicks the next chapter button*
Pleased? He'll probably bust a gut because he's a jerk. And he's already so pissed off with Potter for no freakin' reason. But whatever. *hums contentedly*
