I think this means Draco is expected to marry a pureblood, but he didn't. The curse is tempting Hermione to leave him and it is telling her lies that their marriage isn't real. The line "You are braver than I can ever tell you." means that Draco is impressed by the inner battle Hermione is fighting. If she wasn't that brave, she might've left him waaay before. Well, that's what I think at least.

Oh My God. This story was marvelous! I loved the mindset in which you wrote Hermione It would seem, in a way she was cursed just not by whom she thought! Brilliantly written story, I loved it! :)

What the? I am confused and I think I understand. It feels like I'm watching Inception all over again. I find that Draco is a really likable character here. At first though, I felt like Hermione had gone crazy and that this was fake but then slowly it fit like marbles.

I simply love this story. Your take on Hermione's feelings are so deep that she herself can't understand her own confusion. I love the compilation of stories you've combined in this.
I think that the "compulsion" she's talking about is her attraction to him. That's what pulled her to go out with him. The owl watching her might symbolize the curse that's been put on her. It's effects might be the reason why she's so confused about her marriage with Draco. The curse it pulling her away from him. Or she might love him so much that it's painful. "Every day the noose is pulled a little tighter around my neck." She's smart enough to know that there's something that's not right. "It all seems so normal, except that it can't be." That's why she feels stuck and she feels that everything about them isn't real. Because she's not a pureblood? That's deeply perceptive. Although, I was a bit confused about the Dobby thing, it seemed so out of place.
Very original story. Your writing is perfection.

Wow... very impressive. And yeah, I like the literary references, the mood, the tension, the edge to it. I mean, it feels as if its spinning out of control. I like the confusion in it, I like how vague it is... and how she feels like she's losing a grip on reality, and when he holds her it feels right and she gets confused and holds on. Then it all comes clear (some what) in the end when it turns out the reason for all of this is because of an ancient curse. I suppose it's supposed to make her either mad, or fall out of love and leave on her own will. But... she was being held back by a part of her that truly loves him. Huh. Well heh I remember Peter. Time to research the other works!

I am in love. There is no other way to put it. You are AMAZING! You're more than that but I can't even compared your brilliance right now. You are definitely one of my favorite Dramione authors.

I had to reread the ending to get it. Now that I get it I really like the story! One thing that still confuses me is the owl. Why does an owl magically appear.
