This was such a cute story. I think you did a great job of getting Molly's emotions and her thoughts.
Written for the last third of Madame Alex's Character Triathalon!
Many thanks to Maple for the beta; I couldn't see myself sending this one to anyone else.
Anything you recognise is JKR's. Anything you don't recognise is possibly mine, but probably JKR's.
Wood-nymphs, more commonly known as Dryads, are first and last mentioned in the Potterverse by Fleur in Goblet of Fire. In Greek mythology, these cunning magical creatures are entirely female, and must capture and seduce human men in order to bear daughters and heirs to their forests. In other works of literature they are described as bold and highly territorial, with voracious, er, "appetite" for particular intimate activities. So, basically a shy Herbologist's every fantasy...
Wow. I love the way you wrote the dryad Mel.
Hi, after I read your seven simple years, I just had to see what other stories you had written. I read through all of them, enjoyed all of them, but this story and in particular, this chapter about Hermione and her Dad just reverberated deep inside me. I am horrible at leaving reviews, but I needed to let you know how powerful this chapter was for me. It really hit it home for me, how Ron, Harry and Hermione are veterans of a bloody war and how deep those scars run. And yet, how strong the bonds of heart and friendship are. Harry and Ron taking turns to sleep on the floor in Hermione's room was brilliant. Thank you for an amazing story.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed my other fics! Don't worry about being a horrible review. There is no such thing - anything is appreciated. Yeah, after the war there is no doubt in my mind that they would have changed somehow after spending months with only each other so people who weren't even a part of the war have no chance of understanding. So yeah... thank you again for reviewing :)
