Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
Are you not going to finish the story? :( I really enjoyed it! Immensely.
Summary: After the downfall of Voldemort, Hermione decides to take a break and return to the Muggle world. Deciding to go on a Muggle cruise, Hermione realizes that it was the biggest mistake of her life. Now, she's stuck on a boat with her worst enemy. Fights and bickering continue to take place between them and maybe a little something else too...
Hermione makes new friends and meets up with an old friend, Jessie: an arrogant girl who treats Hermione like dirt and desperately tries to seek Draco's attention. (Slightly AU)

I love this story! Hee hee, I love the bickering that occurs between Draco and Hermione. I hope you have more in store for them.... :D And I absolutely hate Jessie. To think that I thought that she learned her lesson...guess not. XP NEXT CHAPTER NEXT CHAPTER NEXT CHAPTER!!! Please update soon!
Author's Response: I think the main reason why Dramione fics are so popular is because of their witty bickering :) Not to mention the whole 'opposites attract' theory XD Lol I don't know one person who actually likes Jessie...of course I like her for the fact that she creates all this drama and basically brings Draco and Hermione closer through this whole process, but yeah...She's a character we all love to hate hahahaha...! I'm terribly sorry for my slow updates, but do look out...Next chapter will be on its way soon!
Summary: -- Now an entry to the Hermione Granger Big Bang: Completion forthcoming in 2011 (no updates 'til then)
Life is so fickle.Full of bends and surprises. Just when you think everything is settled and quiet, something arises, something that makes you feel what you never dreamed you would feel, and face what you don’t even realize you need to face.
And just as unexpectedly, these bends arch to a happy ending...if we tweak them.Sequel to ‘To Love Life Again’. Let me take you back to Ireland with Andrei and Hermione, but will they stay? Something, somebody, is calling them to England.
Andrei becomes Draco Malfoy again. Sparks and verbal sparring fly again. All because of one little girl called Lucie.Hermione Granger never does anything halfway. And Draco is a Slytherin in touch with his instinct of using all his options for his ends.
They understand each other. And with this kind of understanding, comes some confusions and delusions. But just when you seem so certain, then somebody bends...
I'm so enjoying the story so far! Lucie is adorable. I'm really anxious to find out why exactly she is so...reserved I guess. And I love Hermione and Draco. :) So when are you going to update? Do it soon! Please?
Summary: Werewolves. Vampires. Spies. Secret societies. Love. Magic. Animagi. Prophecies. Ancient goddesses. Sacrifice. More than just the Wizarding world hangs in the balance. Will two unlikely partners have what it takes? D/Hr AU after HBP.
Interesting...I just realized you updated this story on FanFiction about a week before Mugglenet. Maybe I should check there more often :D. I do have a question though; why didn't you title chapters 16 and 17? Just curious. :) Hope your holidays were great!
Author's Response: Hey! Yeah, FanFiction doesn't have a queue, or content mods, so everything just posts right up. The delay is here. I simply titled the 16 and 17 because I got tired of thinking up names for the chapters, lol. Thanks for reviewing!
When are you going to update?!?!?!? I'm waiting so desperately now. :P And I actually don't have homework or studying to do this time! I need to know what happens next! Don't leave me (or anyone!) hanging for so long :(
Author's Response: Chapter seventeen is complete! I just need to get off my arse and type it so my beta can work her magic. Thanks for the review!
Hey out there! You've been lost for 7 months! :( Where are you?!?!?! I hope you update soon. I'm looking forward to your next chapter!
:DDDDDDDD FINALLY! I've been waiting forever for this chapter, which was completely awesome as always. :D I thought you portrayed Harry very nicely. It showed his reasons for leaving Hermione behind, and I think that is what he would do if something like this had occurred. Looking forward to the next chapter, which I'm hoping wouldn't take as long to be updated!
Author's Response: At least it didn't take me another year! Lol. Anyway, thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Happy Holidays!
Gah! When is the next chapter going to be posted?! I'm looking forward to it! I just spent all my time reading your story when I should've been studying...Please update sooooooon!!!!!
Author's Response: Lol! Thanks for reviewing :D The next chaper is finished, I just need to type it and email it to my beta. Now, go study!
I do hope that chapter 17 is almost done. I've been waiting for two whole months now! :( Hurry please!
Author's Response: Chapter seventeen was submitted to the queue on 18/12/09. It's all up to the mods, now! Thanks for checking in :D
Summary: Sequel to "An Aversion to Change."
It's Voldemort's world now: a world of corruption, betrayal, greed, and violence. A world of evil thoughts and evil deeds, where no one can be trusted, especially those closest to you.
But through it all, there must be strength. There must exist those who will stand up to totalitarian rule, who will say no when others submit, who must survive despite their condition. There must exist the resilient.
Eventual Draco/Hermione with plenty of plot. Very dark, so read at your own risk!
-squeal!!!!- OMG, new chapter! It sounds as if Hermione's spirit is sparking back to life. :D Slowly, but it's getting there. And, haha, when Draco said that Brannon wasn't Hermione's master, I had this crazy idea that Draco was her master in disguise all this time. But don't worry, I realized that wasn't true. And you cannot just leave us at a cliffhanger like that!!! I have to know what's in chap. 11! So, what exactly is the little group planning??? I hope we find out in the next chapter. Update soon please! Please? :)
Author's Response: Yes, Hermione's getting her spunk back, or as much as she can under the circumstances. I'm glad I have you on the edge of your seat! It should make Chapter 11 that much more fun! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!
Gosh this story is so depressing. You write so nicely, but still, what a sad story! Especially that last line in this chapter. :( I don't know how much longer I can stand it!!!! I hope this story ends on a much happier note than Aversion and what is going right now. :D Is that too much to hope for? XD
Author's Response: Ah, I know. Hopefully there will be a few moments of joy. As for a happy ending...we'll see. ;) Thanks so much for reviewing!
DRACO FINALLY APPEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!! WHY HASN'T HE COME FOR HERMIONE, THAT FOOL?!?!?! At least he is back in the story. GAH, the SUSPENSE! Update soon please please please! :D
Author's Response: Haha, yes, all will be revealed in time. :) Thanks for the review!!
Wait, I just assumed. It IS Draco, right? Not his father? XD
Author's Response: Yes, it's Draco. :)
I've been checking every single day since I read this hoping to see an update...Please please please do it soon!!! I'm dying to know what happens. And I read the prequel; it was absolutely amazing! Don't leave us with this one chapter!!!!
Author's Response: Haha, you should get an e-mail when a new chapter is posted if you favorited the story. But I appreciate your persistence! I promise to post the whole thing. Hehe, thanks for the review!!
Omgomgomgomg, did you just post this chapter or did I not realize it was here?!?!?! Anyway, I'm glad that Hermione was able to feel comfortable and almost safe for the first time in two years! :D I'd like to find out more about her master. Glad that he seems to treat her at least somewhat more decently than if she had been with someone else. Off to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: :)
Aw darn, I know it was too good to last. I had a feeling that was why Hermione was there. But the "Master" seemed to be a little sorry. Is he really, deep down inside, truly sorry for what he did? Even if he is, right now, I wish I could punch him. >( Where is Draco, that idiot!?!?!?! Whenever he does appear, I hope Hermione doesn't forgive him right away, for what he's allowing to happen. :( Next chapter soon please!!!!
Author's Response: Yeah, she knew it too, deep down. Thank you so much for reading!
I wish I could write like this XD
Author's Response: You should try! :)
You just made my day with this chapter! Thank you for finally updating it! :D Once again, AMAZING work. I didn't think it was possible for Crabbe and Goyle to speak in full sentences lol. Draco really wouldn't leave Hermione there, would he? I have to know! Please update the next chapter soon! Great job again.
Author's Response: Haha, well, they aren't very long sentences...
Thank you for the review!!
Couldn't help but notice how you said that if someone "favorited" you (lol, a new word! XD) they would get an e-mail when you updated. I've had this story on my favorite list since you published it, yet I still don't get any e-mails. :( Any ideas why?
Author's Response: Huh, that's totally weird. I have no idea why that's happening. Maybe make sure that your e-mail isn't blocking them? Sometimes I get school e-mails forwarded straight to my spam folder...::shrugs:: Could be that. Hope you get it figured out, though!
FINALLY! FINALLYFINALLYFINALLY! Hermione is finally back with Draco! I mean, yeah, she's still a servant or whatnot, but I'm hoping her situation will improve somewhat. This story is so dark and gloomy, I'm looking forward to a happy ending right now. XD I have to say, the whole idea that Hermione and others are being treated so terribly is starting to get to me. I hope those were your intentions, to leave the reader disgusted with how Voldemort's supporters are treating everyone. GAH! I have no idea where you are heading with this, but please, continue updating as soon as possible! Chapter 12 please!
Author's Response: :) Yes, I want to drill it into people's heads how horrible this "new world" is, and the best way to look at the state of the world, I think, is in how the lower-class are treated. Thank you for reading!!
