Summary: After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts to complete her seventh year of studies as Head Girl, only to find Draco Malfoy has been appointed Head Boy. Her life is further complicated by the fact that Headmistress McGonagall is strongly encouraging Malfoy and her to attend one of the three wizarding universities in Europe after they graduate from Hogwarts. The story starts HG/RW, but the focus is on the development of HG/DM.
I read this through in one sitting. I felt like I was reintroduced to two important and complex characters. You're very talented, and I'll keep checking back for the sequel!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your praise for the story. I am happy you liked it and the way I handled Hermione and Draco. JKR gets all the credit for making them complex, but I'm happy to be able to keep them alive for her fans. Thanks, Jenny
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy attend the Wizarding University of Paris the year after they graduate from Hogwarts. This is a sequel to the Dragon Does the Tickling, where Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy complete their seventh year at Hogwarts after the war.
Is it wrong that I'm already hoping for a part three? I really appreciate how you've emphasized what makes these two characters so compatable: their intelligence, ambition, experiences of isolation, etc.
On another note, as an American, I see the dialogue as "British", but that's likely just based on my own experiences. Keep 'em coming!
Author's Response: I'm an American trying to write British characters, so while I'm happy they sound British to you, I'm sure I'm irritating the real UK folks to no end with my inexperience. Thank you for your kind review. I confess, I'm leaving a couple things dangling in this story for a potential part 3, although that's far away at this point. Thanks again, Jenny
Summary: Stuck in the Manor and bored nearly out of his mind, Draco Malfoy hatches a plan of questionable legality to acquire some company.
Like your other stories, this was enchanting and human. Thanks!
Author's Response: Yay, thank you!!
Summary: Just because Social Services never noticed Harry was abused, doesn't mean other people on Privet Drive didn't. The quiet image of perfection of Privet Drive can attract strange ill characters.
I really like this story as-is. I would definitly follow a longer AU, but the way it's written is almost poetry.
