Wife and mom of two beautiful little girls; psychology major at University of Phoenix, past performer at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. My hubby Doug works at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and has THE BEST JOB-- he is a wandkeeper (An Ollivander-type performer) who does a show that helps a wand find a child in the audience. Our whole family is HP crazy; my 6 yr old's having a HP b-day party and my 3-yr old speaks with a British accent and insists on calling me Mrs. Weasley!! :)
Summary: It's after the war and Voldemort has won, leaving the wizarding world decimated and all those not of pureblood status dubbed less than human. Hermione must find a way to live in a world that no longer wants her, and when Ginny's youngest child Lily is put into danger, she turns to the least likely person for help and sells herself to the Death Eaters in exchange for saving Lily. Darkfic, post Hogwarts, AU.
Whew! Another white-knuckled chapter, mama! You have such a flair for writing dark fiction; I can't wait to read more!!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like. :) Thanks for the review!
Your portrayal of the conflict within Draco is spot-on, and I can't wait to read about his meeting with Bellatrix. More please! : )
Author's Response: Thank you! Now that we can submit again, I've got to get the next chapter in the queue! :)
You've done an excellent job with your first chapter! I was sucked in from the first paragraph, and I'll definitely be reading every single chapter to come. Just brilliant!! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! :) I appreciate the kind words.
AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! OMG, every one of your chapters is an absolute nail-biter! I'm putting you on my favorites list- please update SOON!!! :)
Author's Response: Thanks, it is pretty tense most of the way through. Glad you're enjoying it though. I'll be submitting more soon. Thanks for the review.
Summary: After the end of Voldemort, a new academic year has started at Hogwarts with Harry, Ron and Hermione as NEWT students. Most of the Slytherins have not returned but Draco Malfoy has. His arrogance and self righteousness have gone along with the vanished honor of his family in the wizarding community. He is woken from a dream to face reality with burning desire to regain his lost pride, with no short cuts this time. Will he be given the chance to prove himself? Hermione does not know how much her decision is going to change both their lives forever.
This is a great concept! Poor Draco...how the mighty have fallen. But you've written his character to be so endearing; I love that!! Look forward to reading more!
Author's Response: Yes Draco is different. I have considered the possibility that he was changed completely due to what happened during the war also he had been showing the signs of change since Dumbledore talked to him in the sixth year. Tried to build his character based on that... :)
I LOVE IT!! Come on,, Hermione, work with Malfoy!! Looking forward to your next chapter. : )
Author's Response: Thank you soo much. Her decision is not an easy one.... lets see what happens... ;)
Summary: The Prince of Slytherin has a plan for his followers, but what about his plans for himself? Second in series, If, So and Then.
Great first chapter- very intriguing! Why do the Slytherins need protection? What's happening with Draco? Why are he and Hermione together (which I personally love)? Can't wait to read more! :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, this fic is however only a one-shot, the second in a trilogy. The first, If, is also posted on this site, and reading it may cause things to make a little more sense. The third, Then, needs a little more tweaking before posting. Glad you enjoyed the read!
Summary: He emerged from seclusion to find acceptance - what he found was her. /post-DH/Draco/Hermione/
Ok, I looooove Fabian!! I'm in theatre and I have many gay friends. You write Fabian as though he stepped right out of my group of friends. Great job! : D
Oooh, I'm excited! I can't wait to see where you take Draco in his adventures at Hogwarts- and then a little Hermione action... ;) Looking forward to Chapter 2!
Summary: What started out as a release from the misery of their lives grew into a symbiotic need for each other...perhaps even more than that. But his lies and his betrayal led to the end of them and his only solace.
As Draco works up the courage to explain himself to Granger, he thinks back to the start of it all and how they used to be. Will he be able to persuade her to come back to him? Or is he so far down the path of no return that redemption is no longer an option?
What a beautiful chapter- their romance in the Room of Req was lovely. You describe Malfoy's internal struggles so deeply, and I like how you wound the story around the actual events of The Half Blood Prince. And I LOVE the song Jar of Hearts- wonderful job. I'm dying to know what happens next! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm trying to make it a little bit canon compliant (as canon compliant as Dramione can be), hence including the events of HBP. Hopefully you wont have too long to wait - the last chapter's in the queue :)
Oh, how heartwrenching!!!!! But perfectly plotted out. I wouldn't have expected for Hermione to take him back- especially with the song's lyrics. I'm so sad, but the ending was exactly as it should have been. Quick- write something else!! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much Stef - I'm glad you liked it! As tempted as I was to let her forgive him, I thought that, considering all the lies, I couldn't do that and make it believable. The one-shot I'm working on next can be a companion to this and it should be up soon! Thanks for the review as always. Luv Alice
Wow- intense and dangerously sexy- just the way I like my Draco ;) Great job; looking forward to chapter 2!
Author's Response: Chapter 2 has been submitted - don't worry, there's much more of Draco being his dangerously sexy self :) Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: A question. An answer. Hermione reconsiders her relationship with Draco Malfoy.
Great one-shot! I'd love if you continued it! ;)
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I do have a lot of other thoughts about this, so maybe someday I will. Thanks for reading and reviewing, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Summary: Life’s choices are unfair, difficult, and occasionally impossible. But to stand in inaction is to perish, and to perish is to fail. What determines survival, and ultimately success, is one’s ability to adapt to the consequences of the action taken, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.
Hurry home, Hermione!!!! : )
Author's Response: :D
Oh. My. God. You're back!!!!!!! The angels are singing. And once again, you're back with a brilliant story-already! Baby Malfoy, and a missing Hermione- holy shit what a first chapter. I'm along for the ride once again. :D
Author's Response: Yes, I am! At least for a bit! Still hard at work writing some longer submissions, but there were fests that I couldn't resist participating in! So glad that you're still following me!!! I'm glad you liked the first chapter - two more to go! Thank you so, SO much!!! :D
Summary: "Tis one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall..." - William Shakespeare
Draco Malfoy can resist everything except temptation...and a glass of Firewhisky or two. Perhaps, then, he should not have taken his biggest temptation to a bar for their work conference.
Yay! Now I can comment on both chapters, unlike last time! Lol Awesome chapter, my favorite was definitely Draco's though-process of what would happen if he took her home. Keep writing Dramione's, I'll keep reading them! : )
Author's Response: That was my favourite part as well actually! I've got another one-shot and a full length fic in the pipe-line so hopefully I'll be able to get those out soon! Thank you for reviewing as always hun - you known how much I love your fic :)
Girl, that was so cute! What a perfect snapshot of Draco's and Hermione's interaction, their perfectly characterized snarkiness- you gave us just enough detail and, combined with all we already know from the books, made it just right. I literally have a smile on my face! And, in University days, my inhibitions lowered a bit when imbibing as well! ;) Great one-shot- hope you're going to write some more! :) Stef
Oh Merlin, I'm stupid!! Duh Stef, there's another chapter. I still think your first chap was complete in and of itself, but I'm curious to see Draco and Hermione's half-hour break! ;)
Author's Response: Haha, that's okay - I maybe should have made it clearer! There's much more of their snarkiness in the second part and the Firewhisky may start to take effect! I'm just experimenting with what could happen between my two favourite characters after they've established some level of civility. I'm working on another Dramione one-shot at the moment and I'm hoping to do a full-length fic after that. You can't get rid of me in this category! Haha, thanks again hun!
Summary: Perish the universe provided I have my revenge. - Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac
Heaven has no wrath like grief to rancor turned, nor hell a fury like a parent anguished.In 2010, Britain was rocked by the unsolved disappearance of a little girl, daughter to Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy.
In 2011, America is rattled by a series of scattered and strange crimes, cold cases before the corpses even cooled.A story of Draco and Hermione on a journey of vendetta, and a journey back to each other.
Wow! The tone is a far cry from CATATI, but you're still nailing it. I am so heartbroken about Bee, and I'm interested in how the plot will unfold. This last chapter- nice job with the aggressive, furious sex on the boat!! :)
Author's Response: Thanks, Stefanie! Haha! Ooh, thanks for saying I did a good job with the smut. I was wondering about that! No one's commented before you, so I thought I ffffailed! :D
O.M.G. So glad they had a son, so glad that their grief brought them back together, to a love that has deepened through tragedy. Oh, please- Esmeralda? Could she be? I mean, Bee? Hope you'll be writing soon again!!!
