Silver haired (blond turned to gray actually) 60+ year old sad old man who loves HP Fanfics. Now very close to 70...
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.
That was not the ending I was expecting.
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.
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.
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.
I just get sucked in to your world when reading your stories. Brilliant.
Author's Response: Thanks you.
Chapter 3 should be up fairly soon, I hope.-N-
Just found this and read it from the beginning. An absolute pleasure and look I forward to more.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you're enjoying this so far. The next chapter has been submitted, just waiting for the mods to look it over :)
It is so good that they are getting there. Lovely story.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Yes, but they still have to get through the locket and everything else yet...
That made me so happy.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I'm glad you liked it :)
I know the story line, but the retelling of it is wonderful/
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you're still enjoying this!
Really enjoyable chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing :)
I liked the way you handled how Hermione wiped her patents memories.
Author's Response: Thanks! That part has been written so many times, so I'm glad that you liked my version :)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again :)
It's a good job we know what happens in the end. Otherwise, I would be heart broken.
Author's Response: Haha, yeah, it does spoil it somewhat. Anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing again :)
Every chapter was a delight to read. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I'm really glad that you liked it all :)
A lot of tension but there is always that "feel good" factor from the way they interact. This story will not end with a kiss because that will only be the beginning.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I really tried to make this like an adventure for the two of them. That's beautiful :)
Boys are thick. I know because I was once a boy.
Author's Response: This is possibly my favourite review of all time. Thank you :)
On reflection, I think the only one thicker in the relationship stakes (excluding Harry and me) is Hermione. Where are her female wiles?
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. Well, she is using them all on saving the world and even the strongest of us can struggle to see what is right in front of us :)
This is just a fabulous look at Hermione and Ron's developing relationship. Good writing.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing :) I'm glad you liked it!
Cheers and tears. I just love these two.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again! It's always a rollercoaster when they are around :)
A bit quirky, but very enjoyable.
Author's Response: This story was always going to be a bit strange, but it's encouraging that someone thought it came out all right.
