Summary: In the years following Voldemort's victory in the second war, Muggle-borns must become slaves and servants to pure-bloods in order to survive. Over time, Hermione Granger has learned to suppress her pride and independence in households where she is considered lower than dirt. She thought she would be prepared for this new family, just like she was for all the previous ones. What she didn't know was that this new family was none other than Draco Malfoy's. Will she manage hold up when she finds herself struggling to withhold her sharp tongue, returning hatred, and...something else?

Your fic has a touching quality to it.
But horribly sad. The world is left in such a state...
Summary: The young ladies of 5th-year Potions are called out for a 'special class,' leaving the boys without their genteel influence. That calls for a special lesson.
This is a Book 5, Harry/Draco short fic that is not meant for younger or saner readers.
Author's Response: :-D
Summary: It's seven years after The War and Hermione Granger, the last whole member of the Golden Trio, is making her way through life as best she can. Then, a visitor from her past arrives, setting into motion a chain of events that would bring her closer to a man she never expected and a horror she had already experienced.
Through time and will-power, Hermione forced herself to forget the painful memories of her past. Could one man make her want to remember?
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Scorpius Malfoy was brought up in the knowledge that he came from an old pure-blood family. Hogwarts is going to teach him a great deal more. Will he be able to rise above his family’s tainted past, or will history repeat itself?
First place in the 2007 Autumn Challenge’s New Beginnings prompt.
Nominated for Best History/Mystery in the 2008 QSQs!
Canon compliant with all seven books, however, not compliant with all interviews given by JKR.
I do like this fic. It's calm and touching. The whole analysing the constellations is interresting. I hadn't realised some of the names came from stars. Well I had for Sirius', and Draco's. By the way, the explaination of how Draco is always there in the sky is pretty cool.
I would have enjoyed a bit more Draco Ron Harry Neville Ginny Hermione interaction... Mostly Draco Harry Hermione, I'd have been pretty interrested. But I guess they're not the center of the story so... Too bad Harry isn't developped. He doesn't show any personality. But like I said, it's not about them, so I'll shut up now. ;D
wo! I'm only at 1st Chapter but already I like it! I like your Draco. He's both very changed and yet in character somehow. I mean it doesn't sound fake and that's quite something! I really look forward to reading the rest!
