I'm aware it's a link, but the picture was too large to fit!
A little about me: Harry Potter. Angst. Latin. Reading writing 'Rithmatics (just kidding about that last one.) Drawing. Sleeping. Thinking. Laughing. Daydreaming. A lot more that probably wouldn’t interest you, but if it does, go to my homepage and look under About Me or whatever it is.
Ship(s): Draco&Hermione, Ron&Hermione, Harry&Ginny, James&Lily, Remus&Hermione, Ginny&Blaise, Hermione&Theodore, Narcissa&Snape, Hermione&Fred/George, and sometimes Hermione&Lucius.
Favorite characters:Hermione, Draco, Ron, Harry, Ginny. Fred and George. The Weasleys. The majority of the Death Eaters. Narcissa and Lucius, Voldemort, Snape. Luna, Blaise, Theodore, Pansy. Lavender and Parvati. Lastly, Lily and the Marauders (excluding Peter… sometimes). Not sorted from most favored to least, and not including all the favored characters. I just can't think of anymore at the moment.
Major turn-offs in fics (for me): OCness. Nicknames that are based on fanon and not the actual series. Fanon personalities and characteristics (Draco being total sex-god; he isn't in the books!) Whole chapters dedicated to sex scenes. Sex scenes written by virgins! (Ugh, bugs me all the time.) Horrible spelling and grammar that it's hard to decipher what the hell the author was writing about. Misuse of adjectives. Flaming with no point; seriously, complain about what was wrong, not how you wasted your time reading it. That was entirely your fault. Things and people that appear in chapters just for a plot device and never to be seen again. Excessive author's notes that interrupt the flow of the fic (I despise them, but having at least one is understandable.) No one uses condoms when they have sex, it's always a Contraceptive Potion or spell. The drug is always Firewhiskey, never pot or ecstasy or some made-up Wizarding drug or alcohol. More complaints coming soon!
Fic Tendencies: Death. Latin. Angst. Major plot twists. Abuse. Memory erasing. Unhappy endings. The Dark people having more control. Kidnapping in some form. (What I hope is) believable romance. Swearing. Humor (dry, sexual innuendo, sadistic, ect). Putting little inside jokes in spots where they seem to belong. Slipping major clues into the story in very discreet ways (which no one has really been able to pick up yet... -grumble-). A bit of time-travel. Death Eater!Draco. Abusive!Lucius/Draco. References to HBP in pre-HBP stories (they work sometimes). Internal conflict. More shall be added soon!

If you’d like to know anything else about me, I'd go check out my homepage, which has a lot of info on my stories and a lot of other cool stuff, like many of the banners to the stories. I'm getting, and making, new ones eventually, but the old ones are up for viewing.
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. =)
BAHAAH I love you! This was such a good chapter to come back with, truly.
The sexy beast thing, omfg, I laughed at that so hard. I call my cat sexy beast, I call my friends sexy beast(s), and I call random objects sexy beasts. It's quite funny actually, because half the time it doesn't make sense.
and "Hermione was acutely reminded of those muggle spy movies, where the two lead spies would have to hide behind pillars and duck under tables to get to their destination without detection by the enemies" made me laugh really hard too. That was pretty amusing, I hafta say.
Personally I suck at writing humor, so reading your stuff helps =D
Keep writing, but dont worry about the update time. MNFF can be weird like that, eh?
Author's Response: Darkwing!! I have missed you and your always encouraging reviews! Thanks for this one... I\'m glad it had you (and everyone else) laughing. =D
Maaan this is such an awesome story. Do you know when you might be adding another chapter? Take your time, but it's been like aaaages. I know you have a life; that's the downside of the good authors, lol. But you know we're all anxious ;)
Okay, you know whats not really fair? There are 80 reviews for your next chaptre, but the damned site wont let me read it because it says it hasnt been validated yet! I AM VERY ANGRY, AND TOTALY ABOUT TO KILL THIS SITE. I *need* to read that next chapter, darn it! MY SOUL DEMANDS IT! *sobs very hard* I am in denial.... excuse me...
*walks off to die*
I'll read that chapter, HEAR MY WORDS, I WILL!
faithful stalker/reviewer/reader of this awesome story.... Darkwing731
Author's Response: Hey darkwing! Yeah, I know it sucks that the chapter’s still in queue even though you guys have been allowed to review it. Oh dear, do calm down yeah? I know the wait is getting ridiculous, even to me, but don’t die on me just as yet, okay? After all, I still need my faithful stalker/reviewer/reader to do what you do best! =D Thanks darkwing! And by the way, your review made me laugh... =D
It sux coz i accidentally read the author's note first!! I KILLED IT!! *sob* But i was laughing my arse off this whole chapter!! Excellent!
Author's Response: Oh dear... Maybe I should write more subtle author's notes next time! But hey, I guess it's a good thing it still had you laughing your arse off! Thank you!
*giggle* Finally, something is really happening between them. I love the drawn-outness between the heads, but it isn't very obvious but you can see it anyways! Please add more to this marvelous story soon please!
Author's Response: Yes, bigger, more obvious sparks are flying now, aren't they? *grin* I have a tendency to draw things out, but good to see that it isn't very obvious yet present. I will add soon, I assure you!
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?
The last chapter of this story has been posted! Thanks for reading :)

Ah yes, I can finally review this story! YAY! I know this is like, what, 2 chapters from being finished coz I read somewhere that you had 25 chapters. Anywho, I've been following this OBSESSIVELY since I started reading this! I was physched when I found it on ff.net, but it hadn't been update in ages so I figure what the hell, and read it here. Anyways, I love the perfect AUness of this, and how it's not like, overly done, and just... gosh, everything about this! Hermione's character is very good, and Draco's is, well, mysteerious and although underdeveloped wouldn't be the right word, it's more like unexplored because we don't know too much about him, (but then, there's Iris and with Pansy's help and that lovely mirror we find out some) but we feel like we do anyways. He's so... raw. I really love this character in this. Anywho, this is the ending of my happy rambling, and all I really have to say is AWESOME job and please update soon. This story, my dear, is getting a TEN. Booyah!
Okay, AWESOME, love this already.... but WTF? I'm either thinking those other Draco and Hermione at school is sort of what WOULD be happening, and the Draco and Hermione in the forest are the same people, but somehow got split and lost in an alternate reality... possibly, the better sides of the two are at school while the normal sides are in the woods. Dunno. But it's confusing, and good, and I would like you to update. Like now. SOON, at least! Thanks! ~Darkwing731
Hey, just read the first chapter. I would just like to comment on the fact that when it comes down to the horcruxes and helping Harry find them which will ultimately lead to the final showdown between Voldie and Harry, don't you think she might put a LITTLE more heart into fighting her parents? Plus, I think she would've gone with Harry and Ron anyways. And Molly wouldn't have let them gone just because they promised letters... and I just think they'd all be rebellious and do it anyways against their parents consent, which, typically, is bound to happen. I'm not trying to flame you or anything, but I just see these as waaay too big OoC's that don't really make sense to be. Sorry if I sounded like a jerk. Anyways, please add more :)
Author's Response: no no no its alryt......im glad you spoke your mind... ryt now in the story harry and ron arent important really so nothing will bementioned about them ...yes i did no they are a bitt ooc but i didnt really care i just needed something to start of the story...if u no wat i mean. i will add more soon chapter 3 is in que.. thanx for ur review :o)
Once again, here I am to critisize this (not personally, but I can't help it really....) Okay. Transfer students. NO. Transfer students from AMERICA. Even worse. Transfer students from AMERICA that know Hermione and Draco and ARE DATING, which, no offense, is kinda a obviously set up that they;ll be a HUGE infulence on Dramione's relationship. And again, please update soon :)
Author's Response: lol you serioudly do pick on the litlle things.....dont mean it in a mean way lol thanks again for your thoughts i really aprreciate it...i just want you to remember that this is a FAN FICTION its not meant to sound real or anything if i really wanted to i can totally change it so its just the characters and nothing to do withthe surroundings and dat...originally this story i wrote wasnt meant for HP but i changed it round abit so just memba its FAN FICTION its my version lol hope you arent offended :o)
Hey, I'd luuurve for you to update it to chappie 3, so heres another review so you WILL update. Keep it up! I love this story and Im kinda confused on the whole Dumbeldore/Harry part in chapter 2
Summary: The night after Ron was poisoned, Hermione must have felt awful. I mean, she hadn't spoken to him in months. So, what if she went to see him? And what do their Amortentia smells have to do with it all?
Reviews are greatly appreciated, good or bad!!!!!!!!
You know what, I liked it. This was a very good one shot. I think you should do more. You might've already, but I;m too lazy to click your user name to find out. But at least I'm reviewing. I know how much it sucks to have a story and you're highly anticipating your first review. WELL HERE IT IS.
Author's Response: Well, thanks, Minnie. Yea, I read your profile, and I HATE people who make chewing noises. I'll be sure to read some of your 'movie fanfics'.
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.’
man that was SO CLEVER. I really liked this one shot, it was really original and I never would've guessed the outcome. You tricked me, honestly, because you used 'she' instead of the actual name. This is true cunning, and I enjoyed it; ommiting the sex scene was a good teaser, and it pulled me too the end. Awesome job =)
Author's Response: *maniacal laugh* haha! Another one fell in the trap! *calms herselfs* Sorry for that. I just love it when people are surprised and/or don\'t expect the ending. Using \'she\' instead of \'Hermione\' needed some thought and I had to be very careful with it. My beta even pointed me a place where it wasn\'t fitting. But, in the end, it was worth it, especially when I read reviews like yours. I can\'t tell you how pleased I am to read that you liked it and I thank you very much for leaving such a positive review!!
