Hello, I'm Hermione_Rocks, though you may call me Anna, or D.E, or Mrs. Snape . . . whatever flies your kite. I'm a high school student who is hopelessly obsessed with many things, such as Harry Potter, musicals (current favorite is Sweeney Todd), books/reading, various Internet web-sites, and food.
As you can probably tell, I have an incurable love for writing fan-fiction. Would I do better to be working on original fiction? Probably. But at the moment, I just want to have fun with writing. One day I hope to be published, but I'm really not in any rush. Right now, I just want to enjoy all this. :)
I hope you find something you'd like to read while you're here, and please leave a review to let me know your thoughts. I'm always looking for feedback, good or bad.
Aww. That was terribly sad, yet terribly beautiful too, if that makes any sense. Great work!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you like it. Thanks for the review.
Very nice! I liked how Cho was portrayed in this. And as a random side note, I love this song. :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yeah, i love this song, too.
I'm really enjoying this story. It's a great plot line, how she admits to liking Severus right up front, without much choice in the matter. And you are keeping both Hermione and Severus wonderfully IC, which is very nice. Severus is so. . .ah, he's just so Snape-ish, how he's playing these games with her! :D Great fic!
Still really enjoying this. And I'm glad you haven't forgotten about Ron in this fic either; some authors seem to pretend he(and his feelings for Hermione) never existed.
One nit-pick, this line:
In one fell swoop, Mrs. Weasley had completely and totally humiliated her.
I think you mean in one full swoop. Otherwise, fantastic! :D
*grins* That is so like Severus, to ask her on a date in that way. Lol. Another excellent chapter, great job!
Wow, there are tears in my eyes. That was really powerful, excellent work.
Author's Response: Yeah, this was a bit more what I was aiming towards. Thanks for taking the time to review!
Aw, Elle! That was sweet. I'm actually starting to soften towards Bellatrix, especially after that. :) The relationship between Tonks and Bellatrix was really interesting. How sad that that is probably as close as they will ever get. Great job!!
Author's Response: *huggles Anna* Thanks for the review. I love writing about Tonks and Bella. Their relationship is just so unique. I actually considered writing a sequal to this where they meet up during to war, but who knows if that will ever get done.
Anyway, thanks so much for the review and I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I\'m really happy to hear that you\'re softening towards Bella. *huggles Bella*
That was very powerful. I especially liked the interactions between Lucius and Voldemort; they were very believable. Very nice!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I\'m glad you liked my interactions between Lucius and Voldie. I\'m not always sure how Voldie would talk to his servants. Anyway, thanks again for the review! :)
Wow...I'm feeling sorry for Bellatrix. That's a first. Again, really great!
Author's Response: I feel somewhat sorry for her too. I think the bonds of family are strong, no matter her loyalty to Voldemort. I\'m glad you liked it, thanks for leaving a note! ~Gina :)
*giggles* Don't worry about how you keep extending the length of the story...I doubt anyone here will complain! :P Good chapter, though it was a bit short.
Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you so much for the review! Yes, it was short - I even thought about combining it with the next chapter but I do like suspense. ;) I\'m so glad you enjoyed it, I really appreciate the lovely review! It was also the 150th review for this story, which just blows me away. *tosses confetti* THANK YOU, EVERYONE!! ~Gina =)
Great, as usual. I really liked the concept of all the snakes down there covering the Horcrux, it just seemed a very Voldemort-ish thing to do (for lack of better wording... :). Looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks for the great review! I\'m glad you enjoyed reading about Dumbledore\'s trip to the Gaunt house. It just seemed natural to use snakes somehow with Voldemort. Thanks for reading this story and for leaving a lovely review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Aw, it's over! Great chapter though. I liked how you connected it back to the end of HBP. I have a hard time picturing Severus with brown hair, but... :P
Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you so much for reading this story. I\'m glad you enjoyed it, it was great fun to write. I had always planned to end with the last few chapters of HBP so I\'m glad that worked out for you. I hear what you say about Snape with brown hair, but he\'s in disquise so I had to. Thanks again for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
Argh, I had a feeling you would leave it on some evil cliffie like that. :) Well, apart from your evilness at the end it was really great. I especially enjoyed the Dumbledore brothers' conversation, it was very clever.
Author's Response: Hi Hermione! Thanks so much for the review! I\'m so glad you enjoyed the Dumbledores, I really like writing them. As for the cliffhanger - I am rather surprised by everyone\'s comments, because it\'s not the first one! But the chapter was getting long, and I just couldn\'t resist. ;) Chapter Nine won\'t be long. Thanks for following the story and leaving a review - I hope you like the rest!! ~Gina :)
Wow, I'm hooked. This is a really good concept, and you're pulling it off nicely. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks for the great review! I\'m enjoying this alternate look at HBP and am glad you are hooked on the possibilities. Thanks for the compliment - I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
I really liked seeing Aberforth appear. Wonderful chapter, as always!
Author's Response: Hi HermioneRocks! Thanks for following the story! I\'m so glad you enjoyed this chapter! I think Aberforth is very interesting myself. I wrote him into another story after this. Thanks for leaving a review! I hope you enjoy the rest of the story! ~Gina :)
Nonono! You can't do that!! :`(
. . .
Well, she has to come back, right? Right?! O.O *bites nails*
Lovely chapter, by the way. :P
Author's Response: glad you like it :)
Awesome. :D Especially those closing lines. Severus and Hermione are in some pretty miserable conditions right now, but at least the latter is enjoying herself. ;) Teehee. Hope the next chapter is soon.
Author's Response: I\'ll try my best!
Haha, poor Severus, forced to buy Hermione a gift. :P I loved that whole scene, priceless. Great chappie!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!
Another great chapter. What an interesting spell...clever of you to come up with that. :)
Author's Response: Thank you :D
Well, I don't normally read Severus/Hermione, but I thought I'd look over here and see what I found.
And, wow. I really like this fic. You have good characterizations of both Severus and Hermione, and I enjoy your writing style too.
As for this chapter, probably the best so far. It was amusing to see Severus act like that, although I also felt very bad for him. Wonderful ending. Anyhow, looking forward to more!
Author's Response: well i\'m glad that i was one of the few SS/HG you chose to read :D thanks so much for reading and reviewing! and i\'m glad you liked the chapter! i think the next one will be even better teehee xD
