Oh. My. God. I seriously started crying while reading this. So amazing, be proud!! I am completely obsessed with this. Words cannot convey. You capture Hermione's essence and intelligence so well...it's mind-boggling. Again, wonderful job with this, it's absolutely beautiful.
Author's Response: Aw, I'm sorry for making you cry - but I hope you enjoyed it still. I'm glad you thought I managed to maintain characterisation - I was worried I was going to lose it a bit in the plot. Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm currently working on a one-shot that can work as a companion to this one - I couldn't quite let this story go!
