Shrouds by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 79]

Summary: Not all Voldemort’s victims were on the side of right.

Over a year has passed since the Battle of Hogwarts. Families grieve, but their dead are remembered with honour.

For Draco Malfoy it has been a year of nothing. Merely existing, he is bound tightly to his past as if enveloped in a shroud, unwilling to accept help. It takes a chance encounter on a cobbled street to jerk him into the realisation that he cannot go on like this. A chance encounter with the one person who has most cause to hate him.

But shrouds, however tightly bound, unravel.

A huge thank you to Natalie (hestiajones) who put her laminated canon card in jeopardy by beta'ing this fic and being very supportive all the way through.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree, so please don't mistake us. I just like taking the odd liberty (ahem) with her characters (and pairings)

Nominated for two QSQ's in Best Non-Canon Romance and also Best Post Hogwarts story for 2011. Thank you.

That was really a very good story. Well written with a fabulous characterization of Draco and Hermione.

Of course, I always want them together, but the story ended as it should have considering the time and conditions involved pertaining to theirs lives.

Really nice - thank you for sharing.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm not sure I can ever dismiss the epilogue which is why Draco and Hermione are doomed. But this fic was more about healing and redemption rather than happy-ever-afters, and with all that had happened before, would they ever be able to be happy. ~Carole~
