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!
As a follower of both 'An Aversion' and 'The Resilient,' I'd first like to say thank you for your work and good storylines. Also, nothing would make me happier than to see 'The Resilient' in full soon. I need to work on my patience.
Author's Response: I'm glad you've enjoyed them, and thanks so much for your patience! I really appreciate it! I'm working hard to get the next chapter out. :)
This Christmas season, Hermione isn't fussed with gifts or wrapping paper. A drunken snog has forced her to rethink her feelings for Draco as she makes the ultimate decision between her mind and her heart.
Short and sweet, but please keep in mind that present tense does not always lend immediacy to a story--rather, it implies confusion in the thoughts of the character, shifts in perception of time, etc. Please use sparingly.
As a huge Draco-Hermione fan, I'm okay with improbability sometimes. But watch how you use "love" in your stories. Lust and affection are different than love.
Also, please don't think I only mean to be rude. I think you have quite a bit of potential to mature into a fine writer.
Author's Response: Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to review. Your comments are much appreciated, and I will take them into account if I ever decide to write another Dramione (which probably won't happen--haha). I have to disagree with you on the present-tense thing, it's always been a favorite of mine and I think it's just a matter of preference that doesn't always necessarily take away from a story. Again, thanks so much for your well-thought out review. xx Ariana
