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. =)
Still haven't updated, and it looks like someone else has taken over your story on another site. Surely if that doesn't make you come out of hiding, nothing will. :(
wat, damn it?! wat happened?? this story is f**kin killin me with all this suspense...
The writer hasn't updated in 4 years. I think it's time to give up, guys. I was here from the beginning with this story and it's so sad that there will be no ending. This was definitely one of the best fanfics I've ever read, symbolised by the fact I come back here every 6 months or so to see if there's any update. Sadly, there hasn't been and I don't there ever will be again.
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?

I'm not even going to try and figure out that metaphor 'coz i always suck at those kinda of things but i do notice great pieces of work and this fan-fiction was really good. I'm kinda glad that you didn't form a relationship between draco and hermione 'coz it makes it slightly more realistic. Anyway, i just wanted to congratulate you on fulfilling a few hours of my life. Great work! x)

This was a cute chapter. Is this story abandoned? I'm enjoying it; it's sweet. Hopefully you'll update soon.
Summary: When Draco flees after Dumbledore's death Hermione knows it is the end for him. How will she cope having to grieve for someone she never had the chance to love?
That was so sad; definitely very angsty. I loved the connection you thought of about the shiver creeping through her body. I hope Draco doesn't die in Deathly Hollows I might just jump in a lake, lol!
Summary: For once in her life, Hermione is faced with a problem she does not know how to solve...
LOL! Loved it as per usual, especially the ending, v.funny! Continue pleassseee!!
Author's Response: glad you enjoyed it!! thanks for reading! :D
Oh no! How could you leave such a cruel cliffhanger?! I am totally loving this, you seem to portray Snape perfectly although I was completely surprised when Hermione admitted in the first chapter she liked Snape. It turned out to be alright in the end though! LOL. Update soon!!
Author's Response: Thanks! i know the first chapter is a little fast, but i\'m glad it turned out alright :D
A very action-packed chapter but I really liked it. Update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you! Next chapter\'s on its way :D
Summary: ‘She told me I could have anything. I asked her for one hour. One entire hour where she would be completely mine. I only hope no one will ever find out, not even her.’
That was really cunning of you, i would never have realized what was going on! Wow, i'm still slightly shocked lol. Great work x)
Author's Response: Imagine what it was like in my head when I first thought of it. I couldn\'t wait to write it! Thank you for the lovely review!
Summary: Red is a striking color.
This was originally written as a drabble for Wendelin's romance class on the forums. Here is the lengthened version. This takes place during Hermione's seventh year.
I really liked that. It wasn't fluffy at all and that seemed to suit the fic. I've never actually read a snape/hermione set as snape a criminal; it was interesting. The fic was really good seeing as your not into this pairing. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! :D
Summary: A one shot.
Number Twelve Grimmauld Place is full this summer, between Arthur, Molly, Remus, Bill, Fleur, Fred, George, Charlie, Ron, Ginny, Harry, Hermione, and none other than Draco Malfoy.
LOL! Great one-shot
Summary: "Cold without you...
Never let me go."
It started out as watching, simply watching her while she peacefully slept in the common room. But slowly, for him, it turned into so much more - something that shaped his life. Draco Malfoy never would have imagined that Hermione Granger would've had such an affect on him - never would've thought he needed her so much.
Originally written as a drabble for FFTF OWL Romance Class.
Summary: What happens when the Imperius Curse is abused?
Draco Malfoy is having second (and third) thoughts about being a Death Eater. His father tries to help him along, however improper use of the Imperius Curse can turn out very wrong. Malfoy’s emotions, desires and orders become very mixed and he flees to the only place he can be safe. He takes refuge in the most unlikely person and the outcome is scandalously attractive.
D/HR, with very slight R/HR. PRE DH.
Ooohhh!!! Saucy! lol. I am totally lovin' this fic, keep up the great work!! x
Author's Response: Thanks ^_^
I am so addicted to this fic and it's only been one chapter! Please continue!
Author's Response: :D I\'m uploading the next chapter today. Should be up soon!
Summary: "Never let him push you too far," they told her.
"Never let him talk you into things you'd never normally do," they whispered to her when she was in doubt.
Wow, addicted to another one of your stories as ever. Gosh, don't you just love this ship?! Update soon x)
Summary: Hermione Granger is pursued by a relentless Draco Malfoy. And what a Malfoy wants, a Malfoy gets!
Summary: Her cries echo in the dark drawing room; her screams vibrate from within. He had to help her, to save her, to get her out - but how could he, when he himself was just as confined, just as lost, just as helpless?
Written for the OWL Romance Class Week 5. Not a lot of romance, but it is pretty dark.
Awesome, I can totally imagine this happening! Good job x)
Summary: Lily writes Sev a letter after the fifth year incident.
“We can’t stay this way,
So I’ll leave you in my wake.
Because I shouldn’t have to pay,
For the choices that you make.”
That was so sweet! I take it you've read DH then lol! x)
Author's Response: Read it, loved it, cried during it, the whole nine yards.
Summary: Alone in her family home, Bellatrix makes a decision. She feels that it is the only choice avaliable to her until she meets a mysterious man in the woods. A man who is willing to offer her something different.
Your descriptions in this one shot are really good. It gave a mysterious edge to it. However, I think the ending was a little rushed. I don't want to tell you how to write your own fanfiction but I just thought everything was flowing really well and then there was just a sudden stop. Overall though, I totally enjoyed it!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
