You had me literally crying like a baby. I have never cried while reading a Draco/Hermione story. I loved reading this.
I just finished the entire story, and I have been crying my eyes out for the past half hour. Tom Riddle was such a deep, tortured character and we really got to see that. I got so into this story, which is what every author hopes to achieve. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review :D
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!
"Hermione forced a guilty smile. “Perhaps you were right, Ziry. I am feeling a little under the weather. I’m sorry for not listening to you.” This seemed to hearten the elf. “I hope that the Master will not take my lack of sense out on you. Please, if he asks, tell him that it was my fault. I will take whatever punishment he deems fit.”By now, the elf was smiling, probably relishing the rare apology. “Thank you, Misses,” she said in a contained, happy squeak. “If her Master asks, Ziry will tell him the truth.” "
In this ^^ section, I was slightly confused as to what they're referencing. Does Ziry know she has been eavesdropping, or is there something else I didn't pick up?
As always, wonderful chapter. Your writing always leaves me wanting more. I'm excited for Hermione and Draco's next confrontation, whatever it may be.
Author's Response: In the previous chapter, Hermione is feeling anxious about attending another Resilience meeting and is therefore acting out of character. ZIry notices and suggests that she's ill, but Hermione insists that she's fine. Once she got back from the meeting, she was pale and freaked out, thus making that excuse to Ziry. Hope it's clear now, sorry for the confusion! Thanks so much for the review!!
Oh, the suspense! I can't wait to find out what happens next.
This chapter seems to make Draco out to be very cold-hearted, which I find appropriate. I do think it was a little rash for Hermione to eavesdrop right after being allowed freedom, poor thing. I can only imagine what they're going to make her do.
I don't know my feelings about how Hermione was so defensive of her master- Brannon- when talking to Draco. I think she's mostly angry at Draco and that spurred her words. Based on her defiance later on, I think she is secretly spiteful towards him.
Thank you for updating :) I really appreciate it.
Author's Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. Thanks for the review!!
I was so let down when I got an update, but there's not another chapter up yet :/
Oh, well. I'll stay tuned :)
Author's Response: There were some technical issues on my part and only half the original chapter was uploaded, so I deleted it and resubmitted. Hopefully it will be approved soon! I'm so sorry for the false alarm!
I love how it gives a motive for the characters' actions in the book- Peter avoiding death at all costs, Lily dying to save her son, etcetera.
I enjoyed this- although it had minimum dialogue and character interaction, it makes up for that with its deep analyzing of the minds of the characters.
Author's Response: I'm glad you found my idea as something that worked. :D Unfortunately, I couldn't put too much dialogue as I needed the characters reflecting on death alone.
Thanks for the short but lovely review.
