Check out my favorite stories. There are some great fics there!
8/24/06 - Episode 8 has been submitted - thank God for sick days! Also, you may or may not have noticed that I've downgraded the rating from Professors to 6th-7th Years. I just didn't see this story going in that dirty of a direction. Although... what would a soap opera be without a little shagging? :)
11/26/06 - Wow so I guess it's been a while since my last update, huh? Rest assured, Episode 9's coming along quite nicely. The awesome reviews I've been getting have motivated me to come back from my little hiatus. Thanks so much to my loyal readers! I really appreciate your complements and your constructive criticism.
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
Yay! I'm so glad you updated! This is my favorite fic that I am reading right now!
THEY ALMOST KISSED!!!!! I was soooooo hoping they would :( but I'm sure it's coming...! And when it does, I know it will be awesome – you’re such a clever writer.
I loved the end of this chapter after they met Victor. He was so sweet. And Draco was jealous!!! I also loved that Draco thought he was so cool for wearing jeans. Imagine how he’ll react when he finds out they’re a muggle fashion!
Author's Response: I'm glad I managed to get an update up as well! Yes, they almost kissed!!! And about whether a real one is coming or not... We'll find out, eventually. Haha... *blush* I'm really not that good. It's because I have such wonderful readers, like you! Viktor seems to be an unexpected favorite. Good to hear that you like him too. Oh yes, Draco was definitely feeling some jealousy! I just had to have him wear those jeans. I thought why not make it seem like he thought he was so cool for wearing them. Anyways, thanks for the review and hope you like the other chapters!
This is one of my favorite fan fics. I love the chemistry you have created between Draco and Hermione. There is this strong sexual tension aided by the fact that they loathe each other (or at least are trying to convince themselves so). In my opinion, you write a very canon Draco and Hermione. Most D/Hr fics jump too quickly into a change of heart. This one takes it time... making it all the more exciting. Keep up the great work! I'm looking forward to your next update.
Author's Response: Thank you for choosing TUP (The Unseemly Proposal) as one of your favorite fan-fics! =D I'm glad to hear that you like the chemistry that I have created between them and that there’s this strong sexual tension with lots of denial. And keeping a very canon Draco and Hermione is one of the main aims of this story, so that it gives me time to play around with the characters as well as make the readers anticipate what’s going to happen next! Good to see that’s working out. ;)
Victor is SUCH a sweetheart! I almost want Hermione to end up with him instead. Anyway, usual great job. It was worth the wait.
Author's Response: Hahah, I guess I made Viktor TOO gentlemanly. ;) Thank you for the review, Canis Contentis. See you after the holidays!
Summary: In the years following Voldemort's victory in the second war, Muggle-borns must become slaves and servants to pure-bloods in order to survive. Over time, Hermione Granger has learned to suppress her pride and independence in households where she is considered lower than dirt. She thought she would be prepared for this new family, just like she was for all the previous ones. What she didn't know was that this new family was none other than Draco Malfoy's. Will she manage hold up when she finds herself struggling to withhold her sharp tongue, returning hatred, and...something else?
The last chapter of this story has been posted! Thanks for reading :)

I won't pretend that I wasn't hoping they would somehow end up together, but I suppose that it just wasn't meant to be. Iris was his true love after all. But I was really hoping that Hermione would save him.... Maybe you could write a spin off story about what happens to Hermione next. She deserves happiness after all these years! Great fic! It has captivated me for the past several months now and I am sad to see it end. I hope you continue to write more excellent stories.
Summary: It is nearing the time of the Final Battle, both the side of Dark and the side of Light are preparing for it...
Yet strange occurences in the Dark Lord's lair come about when the punshment of a blundering Death Eater goes terribly wrong.
Read this fic, picking up where HBP left off, to find what happens when a Follower of The Dark strays into a place of Unwavering Light...
I am honored to hear that my story inspired you! :) This seems like a good start and I am looking forward to seeing where you go with it. Hope you update soon....
Author's Response: Thanks for reading it! Keep reading and watch out for updates...the validation process is being kind of slow...:o) Love Lilly
