*lets big breath out*
Wow. That was such an amazing experience. I loved every single chapter of this fic, and you got the balance just right too. A bit of dark stuff, a bit of fluff, a bit of cuteness, some fighting, some reminiscing..all good!
I really liked the way you ended this....it gives the fic some closure.
I read somewhere that you aren't going to be doing a sequel *sad face, pouts* but I still find it a bit disappointing that none of them realise that James and Lily are there....
Will go read your other ones now...woo!
Author's Response: Thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel like I\'ve said that a lot, but I have really enjoyed your comments. I\'m so glad you enjoyed the story, and I hope you can forgive me for not writing a sequel. :D
Eek..feel sorry for Lily and James! Its really weird seeing Harry as an adult, but I realy like the way you've created his character...
Author's Response: I\'m glad you like Harry, and that you feel sorry for Lily and James :D
oooh :( This doesn't sound good..though sounds exciting! I hope James finds out about Peter soon...and I hope we find out more about why they can contact the kids!
Author's Response: No, not good at all :D
Eeek omigosh….can’t help feeling sorry for Malfoy…I like the idea of him being (partially) ‘human’….This story is rapidly turning into one of the best fics that I’ve ever read..thanks for giving it depth! Its been a pleasure to read so far…I have to now go and revise, but this will be a welcome break from revision!!
Author's Response: Draco is definitely human, he\'s just not a very nice human. *grin* And thank you so much. I\'m so glad you like the story so much.
eeek again! *feels frustrated towards James* And I hope Jordan and Lily don't get caught!
Author's Response: James is a bit thick sometimes :D
Summary: Ron calls Hermione a Mudblood right before she has to go to a Heads meeting with McGonagall and the Head Boy, Draco Malfoy. Then, when she goes to find her friends she stumbles upon a secret Death Eater meeting.
Love the start of this! I'm a massive Dramione fan..woo! *goes off to read next chapter*
Author's Response: Me too! Thanx!
Woooo!! How come this is your least favourite?I love this!! So cute....
Author's Response: Tis not very exciting, that\'s all. Thanks bunches!
This is a good chapter but lacks a bit of detail I think; how come Harry found out that they had been captured?
The story moves all a bit too fast..
And the flashback scene was a bit too mushy...
Author's Response: sorry
Awww like the ending!!
I have afave quote: "No, Harry, if the world would be a better place without you then so many would not have sacrificed themselves for you, and you need to make certain that they did not die in vain by being the absolute best and happiest individual you can be. They all loved you, and would not want you to live in despair."
Just thought that that was really deep and meaningful.
And talk of irony: DD died... *sniff*
I look forward to reading some of your other work!
Author's Response: I LOVE that part! Thanks for quoting it!
Summary: Seven years after the second war, Ginny Weasley can still remember everything. Seven years after Voldemort prevailed over Harry, she's still broken. These are her thoughts and memories, written down seven years after the greatest horror the world has ever known. A heartbreaking tale that describes the months before, during, and after the war from Ginny's PoV.
The last chapter has been sent in. Thanks for reading, everyone!
That was great, very emotional and I really liked the way that you introduce the concept of the title "A Hero Never Cries" right at the end. I sort of expected something like this to be coming but it didn't make it any less emotional.
I love reading stories from Ginny's POV and this one was great. It was very IC! One of my favourite parts was where Ginny spies Harry practising the Unforgiveables and is horrified, which I thought was very realistic of her, given all that she would have been taught about them and all the destruction that can wrought. I found it quite ironic that even she begins to use them at the end, thus emphasising exactly how serious the war has become.
The part about Percy's betrayal... *cackles* Great! Also, the parts about Draco - yay!
The epilogue was a nice twist, adding Luna into the picture and I liked it very much. I'm glad that not everything is truly 'resolved' as I don't think that it could be, given all that has happened. The idea that both Ginny and Luna are still tormented by what has happened really brings a tear to my eye.
Will I ever be rid of all this? Will I ever be able to open my eyes in the morning after a nightmareless night? The answer to that is simple - never. These lines are so powerful. Though the war has ended, they still have no hope. And yet you've introduced a resolve in Ginny - which is both IC (reflecting her old character) and in tune with the story and her 'new' character. I'm glad that she is listening to Harry's final words to her, and so perhaps someday she can think of moving on.
Fantastic story Annie! I've been meaning to read it for ages. :p
Summary: *Last chapter is up!* Due to a mishap in Charms class, James and Lily are taken away to Harry's time, only to meet Ron and Hermione. Kept hidden away from Harry by his two best friends, Ron lets something slip about Harry, James and Lily's relationship. Will James and Lily find out about their son, or at least before Remus, Sirius and Peter in the Marauder era figure out a way to bring them back? Includes people turning into ducks, Monty Python quotes and lots of Marauder goodness. PLEASE R & R- Hint, this does not mean read and run!
Oooh..cool first chapter!
OMG Ron is so stupid!! lol...
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?

Just spent the last 2 hours reading through the whole of this story! Its fab...will probably go back and review some of the chapters that I really liked tomorrow as its getting a bit late, and I read the whole thing like a book without time to review...
I really like the metaphor in the last paragraph! And I guess though its not what anyone wants, the way that you've ended the story probably makes it better and way more unique for a Hermione/Draco fic...*sob* 10/10 definitely!! This is amazing!!!

Wow! I love the story so far, this Draco thing is an unusual twist, and I really want to see what happens next...
Such drama! :p That was extrememly well written and emotional...I actually got quite choked up near the end *sniff* You write suspense really well too :) *runs off to read more*
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful story! It was a pleasure to read the whole way through. Even though this is preHBP, everything - all the subplots, work really well to your theories, and once again I'm surprised how much you foreshadow the books! :D
Just one thing - (ooh no, *has thought of something else...so two things :p) Did Ron and Hermione ever get together?
And will there be a sequel of sorts?
*will go and read Sins now...to see more of Siobhan* :D
*loved the toasts*
I read it wrong for a minute...and thought the chapter was about *toast* lol
*comes in and settles down to what looks like an amazing story*
I love the way that you combine sadness with humour in this. Loads of random little things made me laugh...
A great introduction *and woot 800th review well done!*
