I just had to drop a note and tell you that you are one of the most brilliant authors I've found anywhere. I generally don't read stories until they have been completed and I never reread them. However your story is so fascinating and well written that I check quite regularly for updates and reread it whenever time permits. Personally I'm a H/Hr shipper all the way, but I do on occasion read a D/Hr if it appears to be well-written and popular enough and this is one of them. You are an amazing author and I look forward to the conclusion of this story as well as any stories you write in the future. Good luck! ~BooksandCleverness
Beautifully icy and excellently crafted.
I am really enjoying your story. I can't wait until you post the next chapter. :dances with anticipation:
Author's Response: Haha I\'m glad someone\'s happy enough to dance. Hermione and Tom certainly aren\'t, in their current predicament... ;D
I don't know that you read all the comments left here but I felt that I simply had to stop and say a few words to you.
I read this story at least a year ago, although it seems like far more, it was early on in my introduction to fanfiction and I was quite greedily reading just about every other story I came across. Since reading this story I have read hundreds, if not a thousand works of fanfiction and as I am sure you can imagine I have returned to reread very few.
But somehow in that enormous sea of stories, this work stayed with me, although I read it very, very long ago. And so I have looked for it dozens of times on various websites because I was unable to recall exactly where I'd read it or what it's title was. You can't imagine how very please I was to find it again while very determinedly going through all of the Marauder Era fics on in this website.
Because somehow, this story touched me. Really truly touch me.
I have always had the deepest admiration for characters who sacrifice what they want out of love or admiration for someone else. It is not written very often, and rarely is written well, but this story managed to do that.
This story is beautiful, and heartbreaking, and touching and cold. It is a gift to everyone who happens to read it and I am very proud to be one of those people. Thank you.
Author's Response: Oh, WOW. What a lovely review! Thank you so much for stopping by to comment, and I'm glad you managed to find the fic again.
