I am no longer an active member/moderator of MNFF. I will pop up now and then since I do plan to finish DTB but as far as new stories go, this is it for me. Thank you.
that's all I have to say.
Esmeralda is definitely fun to read. lol.
I love your story btw.
Crookshanks using the toilet or more like flushing?
Hermione teaching the runespoor to write?! wtf?
Where you do you come up with this stuff?
what a smart animal you have there! lol.
I'm so glad to finally read a story where Harry didn't end up being an Auror after the war...so cliche. Kind of weird that he and Hermione aren't friends anymore...but it happens. At least he and Draco appear to be old chums. Love your story.
This is based on Sixth year right? I like it already. =]
lol....funny...you're making Draco so annoying and amusing to watch.
I don't know...it's odd that all of a sudden Malfoy develops an infatuation with Hermione. lol.
"Did you only ask me here so you could snog me?”
The look that came to his pale face was absolutely comical. “Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?”
That quote up there was just comedy. You make Malfoy sound like such a typical 16 year old male...who obviously doesn't what to do when he's suffering from puppy love
this is the biggest oxymoron I've ever read: "a successful, secret relationship with Hermione" lol.
You have such a cute story here...love it
Awww how sad...
It's so cute how you made them each other's "first" and so innocent with their love...
It's also sad that she found out he's a death eater
Ok here's my thoughts...
I kind of have a hard time believe that Harry and Ron would EVER stop talking to Hermione. Gryffindors don't hold grudges like that...I could understand the hotheaded Weasleys but Harry?!
On the other hand it does seem probable...
I did notice that Hermione feels bitter/resentful about her friendship with Harry and Ron in this quote: "Their hero who would have died many times over was it not for me, she thought." Or perhaps she felt resentful that her secret relationship with Malfoy caused the drift. But in all honesty you can't help who you love.
On another note -- I don't take Malfoy for the perseverant type but he is a Slytherin and they are loyal so who knows...as for the letter writing...very cute touch. Totally believable as long as he wasn't stalking her to the point of obsession which it does appear he did for the next five years...
One question...how was he tormented? Was he bullied by the other students?
Now that I've read this I can see why he only wrote letters
It's so sad how she tormented him over and over again by giving him hope of her love until she broke him and saw him at his weakest moment.
you truly are an incredible writer...
you do a good job of making him sound pathetic. lol.
awww so cute!
can't wait to read the sequel
Author's Response: hihi thanks ;D
Hermione reached up almost involuntarily and traced the silver band branded on Draco’s arm. “That’s Dumbledore’s mark,” she said softly.
“Just a moment, Mr. Malfoy, my gargoyle has caught fire.” His eyes were twinkling.
This is so like Dumbledore to say. That's great! I love your characterization of the old Wizard, himself.
I'm intrigued by that silver band on Draco's arm. It seems that you began the story in the future, and then flashbacked into the past. Very good job of doing that. I know that I have a hard time doing transitions, but you're quite talented at them. Very good.
Your first chapter is so action packed, I can just image the rest of the story. I can't wait to read the other chapters.

First, I love your story! I've read it a couple of times since my time on MNFF (about a year) and when I did ship Harry/Ginny it was absolutely one of my most favorites ones to read. I never reviewed before this time, though.
Now that I can't stand Harry/Ginny or Ron/Hermione (you've got fanfiction to thank for that,) I can honestly say that this story still is one of my most favorites. And that is saying something - trust me! (Avid Dramione shipper >.>)
No, you can't convert me back - but this story still makes me *squee*
As for the story itself, and more specifically this chapter, I have to give you props for your superb characterization of Harry and Ginny, not only as separate characters but together as a couple.
I loved how you wrote humour into a non-humours situation; and the frustration from both sides was evident and clear.
It was brilliant the way you wrote Ginny's nervousness and Harry's enthusiasm; their first fight as a married couple is quite hilarious yet heart-breaking at the same time.
You did a great job! It was well-written, great characterization, and just wonderful!
Give yourself a pat on the back!
