Your unanswered questions in this chapter are open to innumerable answers. I'm excited to see where you'll take this!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review, I'm glad that you've enjoyed this fic so far. This fic is completely written, and will be updated as soon as possible!
Tragic and lovely, and beautifully written. I'll keep an eye out for anything else you write!
I love reading your work, Alice! Terrific one-shot, my dear. I think it was a great idea to give the reader the knowledge that Draco and Hermione loved each other, but none of the details. You leave them for your readers. Draco's point of view felt very real to me. Oh, and I can't wait to hear what you think of the chapter I have in the queue-you and I are on the same wavelength in a big way! Great job, sweetie! : )
Author's Response: I love reading yours too Stef! Thank you so much - your comments are always so sweet! The background to their story could potentially be Jar of Hearts but, like you said, we could leave it to the readers imagination. I'm glad you felt Draco's POV was realistic - I tried to show him as conflicted whilst maintaining the familiar Malfoyisms (such as hating Ron). We're definitely on the same wave-length: I love the direction your fox is going in. I'm writing a full length Dramione at the moment so keep an eye out! Thanks again hun :)
Alice! I just found this story! My stars, girl, I love the way you write. I know that all of us Draco-lovers out there enjoy writing him as dark and complicated but with a good heart buried somewhere inside. However, I think that we all know there's a distinct possibility that he's the shallow dickhead you just portrayed him to be. I feel as pathetic as Pansy, because I love him either way. Keep being fabulous, my friend! :D
Fantabulous! Just build that sexual tension woo-hoo! My fave lines: "What if I were really attacking you? (italics) I'd let you do whatever the hell you wanted...Looking forward to Chapter 5! :D
This is a great start to a promising story!I'll be following along, for sure.
"Since when do you even know what an emotional affair is?!"-LOL!!
Ohmigosh, girl! My chest was tight the entire chapter!! The tete-a-tetes between Draco and Hermione are deliciously tense, and at the same time, heartbreaking. I felt so badly for Draco as he heard of his role as a Death Eater and the one charged with Dumbledore's death- how horrifying it must be to learn of the kind of person he was. And, through all of this, you still make him damned sexy! My hat's off to you, hunny- another great chapter!! Luv, Stef :)
Fascinating as always, Miss Alice! I am so intrigued about this new Draco-oooh, what's really going on with his mind, what's happening between him and Hermione. I await more pieces of the puzzle- soon I hope! Hope the house-hunting is proving successful! Luv, Stef :)
You know you're awesome, chicky! The plot keeps getting thicker. Was it Lucius that called him "Little Dragon"- sounds like pet name from father to son. Of course, you probably can't tell me yet. ;) Keep up the good work-I'm on pins and needles for the next chapter! Luv, Stef :)
Author's Response: Ahhh Stef, I've been so bad at replying as of late! But thank you, so much, for your constant support - I always like hearing what you think! And you'll have to wait and see who might have said that to him...you might be getting some clues in subsequent chapters! I hope you enjoy the next few chapters :) ~ Alice
Alice! Hooray, you're back with another story- one with a riveting first chapter! Oooh, this is going to be good. I hope my sweet Little Dragon will be okay!! Looking forward to the next chappie! :D
