Summary: In his sixth year at Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy begins his training as a Death Eater. Whether he likes it or not. When Hermione Granger is kidnapped and held prisoner at Malfoy Manor, Draco's life becomes even more complicated. She challenges everything he's ever believed, and draws feelings from him he never knew he could have. Witness their relationship unfold as Draco prepares to make a life-changing decision: to accept his family's destiny for him or to risk both their lives by turning his back on it all.
Lovely story! Can't wait for the sequel!
Author's Response: Thank you so very much! The sequal will be up as soon as my muse cooperates with me. ;) Luv, Stef :)
Hermione gets the cat, the flat, the food, and the furniture. Ron gets the family and friends.
Harry gets the boot, his little book, the blame, and the shame. Ginny gets a new bloke and a haircut.
'The One' is an insidious myth, and 'Meant To Be' smacks of a hope to which no one has a right.
It's a shame the two of them bought into it for so long.
And it's too bad old habits are so hard to break.
Excellent writing! I hope you have more for us soon!
Author's Response: Thank you, Chelle74,
Writing time is sparse at the moment, but the next bit is framed in my head. I just need to get it down.
Thank you so much for reading and for the review!
Summary: When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself. - Thich Nhat Hanh
He has been running for as long as he can remember - then again, that isn't saying much.
Her job is to get him to stop - which is easier said than done. But it is him and her - it was never going to be easy.
Oh, I'm so glad for a new chapter! I've missed you!! The emotions are so raw in this one. You are really building to a big climax at some point! Please send the next chapter soon. Hugs!
Great story! I'm always excited to see an update posted! Send a new one soon... can't wait to find out what happens next!
p.s. It would be interesting to see the story from inside Draco/Leo's head...
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review - the next chapter's being beta'd! Unfortunately, everything I've written so far is from Hermione's point of view, though I may do some latter chapters from Draco's, I had planned on doing them mostly Hermione's - if only that I want Draco's head space to remain a mystery, both as Leo Wyvern and when he finally regains his memory! I hope you still continue to enjoy the story. ~ Alice
Yea another chapter! It keeps getting better. I really thought it was good that you showed Hermione struggling over how she 'should' feel. It is interesting how people can cling to what is safe and comfortable instead of going for their true passions, which may be more unsure and unpredictable. Excellent as always and I can't wait for the next one!!
That was fantastic! This is truly one of my favorite stories. So glad you're back!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm so happy this is one of your favourites :) The next chapter's being betaed - a little later than I intended, but hopefully I can get it up soon! ~ Alice
At the edge of my seat! Don't keep us waiting too long for the next one!!
Sophomore Spells at the Wizarding University of Paris by jenniferes
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 150]
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy attend their sophomore year at the Wizarding University of Paris. This is a sequel to both the Dragon Does the Tickling, where Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy complete their seventh year at Hogwarts after the war and fall in love and More Wandless Magic with Malfoy, where they complete their freshman year at WUP. I strongly recommend reading both those stories first.
I've read your entire series and really enjoyed it! I'm glad you are continuing. Looking forward to the adventures in this series!!
Author's Response: Thank you for the favorable feedback. I've got a big adventure planned for their sophomore year! :-) Jenny
Summary: The Collier's Virus is highly contagious, magically virulent, and always fatal. Junior Healers Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger are called in to help find a cure before the virus claims another life. If they can.
I've read your other Dramione stories and enjoyed them all. This one is a very different take and really well written. I look forward to seeing where you go with it!
Author's Response: This is definitely quite different than anything I've written before, but I'm glad you think it's going well. Thank you for reading!!
Summary: 'Tis the season to be jolly - or so the saying goes.
For them it is a time for war; a time for battle strategy and constantly looking over your shoulder.
She thinks there is always time for Christmas - the childish part inside of her that still believes in miracles does, anyway. He thinks she's wrong - but then, he always does.
Another great story. I actually read "We Happy Few" when you first published it. I really enjoyed and noticed the undercurrents of Hermione and Draco's relationship in that fic (even though it really wasn't a romance). This little vignette was a nice companion to that story. I really enjoy your writing, it has a lot of depth. Please don't forget about "The Runaway". I still check all the time for your updates!! Hope all is well and you had a lovely holiday.
Summary: It was just another reminder that what they were doing, the lives they were reclaiming, were the lives of people. Of the people each and every member of her group used to be. Hopeful. Determined. Human.
I always love your stories! This one was definitely dark, but that was its category, so I was prepared. Your writing is brilliant. You have wonderful character development and a nice flow to your plot. Enough description to keep the reader's mental picture yet not too much where it slows down the movement of the storyline. I hope you have a new story in the works... Perhaps a Dramonie fic? Quite a few of my favorites seem to have been abandoned and I love all of yours! How's that for a lengthy review?! :-)
Author's Response: Ah, I'm so happy you liked this fic! Yes, it is definitely dark. Not my first foray into horror, but maybe one of the most effective. Even I found it chilling upon re-reading, and I wrote the darn thing! Hahaha Long answer: Funny you should ask! I do have more Dramione stories in the works. One is for a 'remix' fest which will start posting around September, so I should be able to archive it here around October/November, depending on when it finishes up. I've nearly completed another story (romance, again!) that will need to go to beta (maybe I'll post that by December-ish?) Lastly, I'm about halfway done writing a 'paranormal mystery' Dramione, but I have no idea when that'll get done. Short answer: No worries! I have not abandoned you! :D Thank you so much for reading, reviewing, and sticking with me! I know I'm not the most prolific author, but reviews like yours are really so motivating!
Summary: After the Battle of Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy and his family found themselves as outcasts. Hated by the Magical community, they were shunned for months following the battle. Draco, having changed dramatically during his service as a Death Eater, knew that his family got what they deserved - even felt they should have received a more severe punishment. He regretted and hated his past and had no reason to believe that his future would be much of an improvement.
Until he got a letter inviting him back to Hogwarts.
He knew the risks. He knew the consequences. But he didn't know her.
Nice beginning! I look forward to reading more.
Summary: Everybody calls him Squid, and he has but one mission: destroy the Malfoy family. No one can take it from him - not the MLE, not Granger, and certainly not the ferret himself. However, they are welcome to try.
Yea! I was so excited to see this chapter posted. Excellent re-entry of our "pal" Squid. Goodness, that Baker certainly was a good example of arrogance and stupidity. Looks like some action is up next... Can't wait!
Author's Response: Oh yes, action is imminent! It'll be a bit longer than a week before I post again (I'm going out of the country and won't have computer access), but once I'm back, this story should be wrapped up before the end of March. :) Thank you so much for continuing to read and review!!
And the relationship turns... Thanks for the holiday treat!! Hope yours was lovely as well!
Author's Response: Yes, my holiday was great, but I'm excited to get back to posting again! I hope to have another chapter up by the end of this week. :)
Yea, an update! You are a master at building the tension. Too bad the little grass fight was interrupted... Send the next chapter soon!!
Author's Response: Woo! Thank you! Yes, Estelle has terrible timing, doesn't she? Who knows what would have happened had they been allowed to continue their horseplay? ;) Thank you for reading and reviewing! You're spoiling me, leaving them on every chapter. It's great! :D
Yea! Another chapter! So now the action is heating up and Squid is making his play... The story is getting very exciting and you are very talented with cliff hangers...
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you're still enjoying this!
I am continuing to enjoy your story and the build up of the main characters' relationship. Keep the updates coming! Thanks for not making us wait long!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the progression! I'll try not too make you wait too long, but I can't make any promises with the holidays coming up. ;)
Interesting segway... I wonder what will happen when Hermone returns? And Squid will certainly find out (if he doesn't already know) that Draco has returned home. It seems a turning point... Thanks for the speedy update!! As always, can't wait for the next!
Author's Response: Thank you! I don't know when I'll update next - maybe a week? A week and a half? I'm not going to give anything away re: Squid, but I will agree that their homecoming was definitely a turning point. ;)
Bravo! I guessed correctly about "Ape's" true identity and I even had a sneaking suspicion that "Squid" was a Creevey. I kept second guessing myself on the latter because your character is SO un-Creevey in nature, but I really like how you show what anger and bitterness and a thirst for revenge can do to someone. Now to help Hermione stop the bad guys and finally let the romance happen!!
Author's Response: I figured people would catch on to Ape's true identity pretty easily, and I'm glad I kept you guessing with Squid's. Another reader pointed out that George Weasley could've gone much the same way after Fred's death, and I agree: the loss of a loved one changes you, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Colin's death hit Dennis hard and, well... You see the results. Thank you so much for reading!
Beautiful end to a compelling story! Thank you for the journey, I really enjoyed that one. I hope to see more from you in the future!!
Author's Response: Ah, I'm glad you enjoyed this. Thank you so much for reading and leaving such great reviews on every chapter! I seem to have lost a bit of traction on this site as far as readers go, and I'm really happy that there are still people out there willing to give me a chance. :)
