Some interesting history here, but meanwhile, back with Draco?

I am left gasping for breath.

 

Summary:

Daphne Greengrass had until her twenty-first birthday to pick a husband, or her parents would choose one for her. With only months to go before the deadline, she found herself with a perfect suitor in Theodore Nott.

But when a freak pregnancy landed her in the care of cranky Healer-in-Training Michael Corner, Daphne started to realise that things she thought she knew were slowly being turned upside-down. And what she thought she knew about Michael Corner began to dissolve into something different entirely.


This story has been nominated for two 2012 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Non-Canon Romance and Best Post-Hogwarts Story.


This story has also been nominated for a 2013 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Post-Hogwarts Story.

This story just gets more gripping.

Author's Response:

I'm glad you think so. It's hard to know whether something is exciting on the page to someone else when it's already happened in your head and hence has no suspense. Thanks for checking in!

This would not normally be my sort of story, but in this case I was just sucked in. Well written and original.

Author's Response:

Would you believe I get that a lot? My author page is covered in stories with reviews prefaced with 'this isn't the type of thing I normally read, but...'. I take it as a compliment, so thank you for that.

I'm glad you find it original. It's hard to write stories that people haven't read before in some other fashion. I hope the rest of the story continues to be a pleasant surprise. Thank you for the read and review. :)

Interesting developments.

That was a powerful chapter.The dialogue was brilliant.

Author's Response:

I'm glad you like it. The beginning of the story was a fair bit lighter and fluffier than the latter half, so be prepared for some turning of the screw! Thanks for stopping in. :)

Good update. I am liking this story more and more. Your characters are very real.I have just checked out your other stories and what a wealth of stuff to go at.

Author's Response:

Welcome back! I'm glad you're enjoying the story thus far and that it's getting better as it goes along. The beginning moved a bit slow because of the amount of character introduction I needed, but I think it paid off.

Anyway, thanks for the support, and watch for an update in a few days!

That was not the ending I was expecting.

Author's Response:

Well, strictly speaking, there are still three more chapters, so it's not the end. However, that you weren't expecting it? Goody. >:)

Daphne definitely has some shenanigans to sort out. Wish her luck! Update on the second, because it's a fine day to update!

This is such a great story with "real" characters who are less than perfect but are the result of their up bringing. Please let us know about what happens to Rose. Good writing.

Author's Response:

Screwed up characters are like crack to me, so most of mine end up being earthy people with problems and angst. It may be why Post-Hogwarts fics tend to be my niche, because there are lots of problems with coping there. I'm glad they feel real to you. :)

And as for Rose...her story does have a resolution. Stay tuned, and thank you for reading!

Good ending. I am now going to attack your other stuff.

Author's Response:

Attack away...there's plenty there, hehe. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for following along. :)

I read the first chapter of this story some time ago and then found it again yesterday. The quality of the writing is first class, but I am afraid I find your Hermione a bit wimpy. Still need to follow it now to find out what really happened to Draco.
