Summary: THE LAST CHAPTER IS IN! Read, review and enjoy!
The first battle of the second War- Dementors illegally issuing the Kiss on Death Eaters- A murder in the Weasley family- Voldemort's plans- Dumbledore's and Harry's struggle.
In the midst of this chaos and hardship, Hermione is left feeling slightly disheartened. When Harry and Ron are temporarily unavailable to befriend her, an ironic and seemingly platonic relationship is born. Will it ease the pain of the War's influence, or will it only create further turmoil for a girl that needs anything but?
And in the end, a terrible decision is left to be made; one that no natural person would envy.
:-D I have sooooooo loved this story!!! It's so full of emotion, and so real. I have enjoyed every minute of it! 10/10!!!!
Summary: Harry comes back from serving detention with Ron and finds Ginny and Dean in a rather compromising position. A strange and confusing set of new feelings erupts... like wanting to punch Dean Thomas senseless. But what's confusing Harry most of all is that Ginny no longer seems to be just Ron's little sister... she's a beautiful girl, standing right under his nose-- exactly where he hadn't been looking.

:-D Your story makes me smile!!!! Don't worry, you can forget those other rude people. This is the first H/G fic I have read, and I must say that I am enjoying it immensely. I loved the reactions of the five brothers, and Ron's totally believable reaction. Although I don't know how many parents would allow a teenager girl and her boyfriend to stay alone in her bedroom for long periods of time. Other than that though, the story has been wonderful. Keep up the good work!!!! *10*
Author's Response: I know, I know... I doubt they would allow them to stay in her room for long. Anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing, Violinist!
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. =)
*Sobs hysterically* I have been waiting for soooooooo long for chapter 32, and after receiving 5 emails from the staff that you've updated, it tells me that chapter 32 isn't validated yet!!!! *continues sobbing* Congratulations for winning the Dramione Awards, that must have been so exciting to find out after being away for such a long time. You deserve, you are an amazing writer. I guess I'll just have to check back later to see it it's up. I guess I can wait just a tiny bit longer. Maybe. The suspense is killing me!
Author's Response: Awww, please don’t cry! *hands you a tissue* I know you have been waiting for a very very long time for the next chapter and it’s awful that after receiving all those emails saying that it has been updated, it actually hasn’t. *hands out more tissue* And thank you so much for that! It was exciting, especially since my sister knew about it, but refused to tell me what the “Big Secret” was. *blush* Thanks dear, you\'re really kind. You guys really supported me so much, and I think it’s because of that I managed to win them… =D Great to hear you\'re going to wait it out! Hang in there, all right? It’ll be up soon!
Wow!!!! That was stupendous! (I love that word!) The idea of the love knot being not only a captivator but a protector was ingenius! I loved the part where Dumbledore explained away his negligience with the hat...I've always wanted to wear a tall hat. I would definitely agree that this chapter was definitely worth the wait. I'm so excited for the next one. Keep up the amazing work!
Excerpt from Chapter 13:
"To be quite frank with you all, I have come to you to see for myself that you're all still alive."
That was a transfer of all your knowledge, memories, emotions, and a lot more than that, into my mind."
"Don't worry- with this stuff you don't have to answer, but if you do, you won't be able to lie."
She's awakened, and her power is growing...There is no turning back from here.
I absolutely LOVE your story! Although the beginning was a bit slow with all of the description, it has developed amazingly! I give you really big 10! Please keep on writing the suspense is killing me!
P.S. If you haven't caught on yet, I love your work!
Author's Response: Thank you, how generous. I know, I can get a little carried away sometimes. I promise I'm really trying to get the next chapter in but they keep getting pickier and pickier (if that wasn't a word before it is now). I'm so glad you like it. Keep reading! Sincerely, On Angels Wings P.S.~ I love your name, especially the Violin part
Summary: For the rest of the Ministry, the interdepartmental challenge was merely a failed attempt to restore trust between workers. But for Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger, it was the catalyst for an unexpected relationship built on passionate letters, concealed identities, and secret meetings – and the beginning of an end that neither of them could ever have imagined possible, not even in their wildest dreams.
Post-war. Based somewhat on the story of the Phantom of the Opera. Also contains R/Hr, so don't read if you can't stomach that ship.
Status: Complete. Thanks for reading, everyone!
Ooo, all but one corner! Now, I wonder who on earth could possibly discover that letter? :-D Great job! I've missed this story! It's been such a long time since you've updated. That's okay though. Great job!
Summary: Three years after Voldemort’s first fall, Tonks and Ninette, a metamorphmagus and a dancer, each struggle to find their own identities apart from the deceptions of mirrors. Meanwhile, in the caves underneath Hogwarts, someone may be searching for things better left lost.
I love this story too, but I never would have begun to read it if I had noticed that you haven't updated in almost a year! You do write beautifully, you shouldn't give it up. You've had me at tears quite a few times. Please, don't abandon this story. I, and quite a few others, would be most distressed.
Author's Response: I haven\'t given it up - I\'ve just taken a very long hiatus, and I\'m planning to start again soon. I\'m glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: NOTE: CHAPTER 19 IS COMPLETE; CHAPTER 20 HAS BEEN STARTED!
It is Hermione Granger's seventh and final year at Hogwarts. When she and Draco Malfoy are together more often than either would like, Hermione asks herself: "Can a leopard change its spots?", as Draco wonders: "Will any sort of relationship with Granger be bad for my health...?"
Yes please, update really really soon!
Hahaha! I love Luna! "Perhaps his coffin is too small!" Good job on the chappie, it's was quite entertaining. Keep up the good work; I hope moving hasn't been too stressful for you!
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
Wow, I love your story! I just read it all in one sitting! You are a very talented writer. You create a picture without drowning us in description, and your thoughts flow with ease. I'll admit, when I first noticed your story, I was a bit hesitant to read it. I mean, an Hermione/Tom Riddle ship? Are you crazy? But actually, as you can see, I'm quite enjoying it! Your depiction of emotions is amazing! Riddle would seem to me to be an impossible character to write accurately, but so far he has been quite believable. Stupendous! 10/10!
Author's Response: Thank you, I\'m so glad you think I\'ve managed (so far) to write Riddle accurately. You know, to tell you the truth, I thought Hermione/Tom Riddle was absolutely crazy too until I was about halfway through writing this... I had never been a Tom/Hermione shipper. In fact, the thought had never crossed my mind until I got this creepy, chilling idea for a fic about the two. I was really hesitant to write it, because I had no idea how to make it work. But alas, this is the final product and it is what it is. :D

Flowers for Algernon is one of my favorite books, and I think you are doing a marvelous job on this spinoff.
Author's Response: It\'s one of my favorites too, I\'m glad you think I\'ve done it some justice. Thank you for the review! =)
:-D Very nicely done. You continue to impress me! I don't have much time to review, so I'll just say that you did a fabulous job, and I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Well thank you. That really does mean a lot to me. And let me say thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me and not giving up on this fanfiction... I know it\'s hard to continue looking for an update when the author is being a complete ass about updating it, but you did and I thank you for that! Lots of cookies coming your way! What\'s your favorite flavor?
Love the story! Poor Draco, poor Harry, poor Hermione! Can't wait til the next chapter! You are an awesome writer. I simply love how describe the events without overloading our overworked brains. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I apreciate the compliment. And I do hope I don\'t overwhelm you all, I know it may get a bit confusing at times, and I apreciate you for sticking with it! Expect an update soon!

I personally am a little perplexed. I think that Hermione and Draco are acting extremely OOC right now, unless it is because of their colds, but I still think their behavior is a little extreme even for that. However, I do like it so far. It is defiitely a different twist on this ship. I think I just might keep reading... :-D
Author's Response: Yeah, they are a little OOC, but I personally think that they have a lot of layers and their colds are just letting their outer shells fade away. Thanks for the review!
Summary: The whole wizarding world is in uproar after the death of Dumbledore. All Death Eaters have a price on their heads. During these troubled times Hermione finds Draco Malfoy practically on her doorstep- with no memory of who he is or what he's done. Why is he there? Why does he wake screaming every night? And how can she deal with a Malfoy who regards her as his best friend... or maybe more?
:-( I love this story, and it saddens me that it will be halted for quite a long time. I empathize though; I hate studying for exams. I give this chappie 10/10!
Author's Response: Thank you for understanding. These exmas are very important, but afterwards I will hopefully have a lot of free time on my hands. Even if this one gets a rest, I will post my new story in June (it\'s another Hr/D and in my opinion much better than this one).
Wow, I really like your story so far! I read all of your current chapters in one sitting. I really like how you don't have Hermione fall head over heels for Draco in the beginning, like so many other H/D fics. Keep up with the good work, and write the next chapter soon please! The suspense is killing me!
Author's Response: One sitting? Wow! I agree with the love-at-first-sight thing, that drives me insane. They are two characters with a lot of bad history and need time to overcome it. I have the next chapter in queue, so hopefully it will be up soon.
Wow. I love it! It's so real, and deliciously terrifying. Wonderful job well done!
OH, sorry, I forgot to say that I am in awe at your description capabilites. Whenever I read, I kind of picture it as a movie in my head, but this simply leaps out at me, it's so vivid! I love it!
Summary: In an account of personal growth and very deep friendships, a young girl manages to grow up at Hogwarts in the shadow of her extraordinary friends during the first rise of Lord Voldemort.
Alright Miss Complainer, here is your stinking review! And I'll keep the batteries, thank you very much! :-D Alright, down to business. First of all, I love the word volatile! Yay! I liked the part where Lily talked to Phedra about Petunia, although I don't understand really why she would all of a sudden decide to confide in Phedra. But that could just be me. Let's see, I like how you called Maeve a leech, although I'm certain you spelled that wrong. Yep, you did! Bad Anna! Hmm, I LOVE the velociraptor, cuz it's so different. :-D I like how Phedra has a craving for olives. Reminds me of certain marsh parties... I love how the Wilberts think that Phedra is a delinquent; it's almost like it's a link to Harry Potter. Like, how on earth could that lady have thought up that idea? Stupid lady.
So there. This is my super duper long review. You better be happy! I really liked this chapter; I don't know why your other readers haven't commented like they normally do (Hint hint for poor Anna and her best friend who gets abused for her not getting enough reviews from her beloved readers!)
Love Genius Bre!
Author's Response: Yayayayay! Lol. Shame on myself for spelling leach wrong. Shame on my beta for not catching it (laughs for about ten minutes).
Anyways, you have no idea how happy review make me, so thanks so much! *muah!* Oh, and I totally didn\'t think of marsh parties when I was writing about the olives, but remembering know makes it that much better. TTYL!!
I would just like to point out that the comma in that sentence, Mr. Kentuck, is perfectly justified and should remain there. Keep up the good work banana!
Love love love Genius Bre
Author's Response: Er, I\'m pretty sure KenTuck is a girl, and that my pen name is NOTabanana. So much for being a genius.
Side note: To any confused person reading this, violinist209 and I are perfectly used to harrassing each other. So there isn\'t any mutual hatred, is my point.
