Hermione knew it wasnít her business. And she didnít mean to get involved either. But itís difficult not to when you realise that youíre the only one who has noticed this change; that no one else seems to care that Draco Malfoy is looking more and more tired, weak and pale each day, sporting dark circles under his eyes, and Hermione wants to know why.
I didnít expect a thank you; a nod was fine with me.
8th story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)
Important announcement in my profile
Totally broke my feels here, man. Great storyline.
Summary: Hermione is struggling to keep S.P.E.W afloat after a nasty and public incident involving a house-elf, rolling pin and Muggle now recovering in St. Mungo's. George is slowly drowning in a sea of financial strain and grief over Fred's death. When the two of them join forces one Christmas, will they overcome their troubles and perhaps find solace in the unexpected? But can these two very different personalities reside in one place at one time?
I love this soooo much! I usually don't read fics that haven't been finished yet because I'm the kind of reader who needs answers right away but I'm so glad I read this one and I hope you haven't abandoned it because I would very much like to continue reading it and seeing how your vision unfolds.
Author's Response: Thank you! I do really hope to get back to this fic. I still have it all planned out, so hopefully your wish will one day be granted :)
Summary: Hermione knew she had to try harder, either to heal faster or hide her failing more effectively. She did not understand why the PsychoSocial Healing sessions hadn't worked for her as they had for Harry and Ron. She did not understand why she was still lost, still low, still struggling to breathe, and talk, and see, and live.
I love this story. It's short but just long enough to capture someone's heart. I ship Dramione completely and am writing a few of my own fics- I just hope they turn out as good as this! I must say that I just wanted them to kiss! Ah! But, oh well, I can leave that part to my imagination. =) Great job and I hope to see more of your talent elsewhere.
Author's Response: This piece was written for a fest on Hawthorn and Vine, a Dramione-only archive that you should definitely check out (and join!) if you're looking for a place with serious writers, fic, and support. Anyway, the artwork that inspired this piece is archived on that site: it's called "Branded", and the artist is Glutton. Check it out, and you'll get your wish. ;) I hope your fics turn out well, too. Again, check out Hawthorn and Vine as a resource for meta, betas, general cheerleading, etc. I'm archived over there under the same username. Thanks so much for reading!! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
