| BellaCoventry chapter 32 . 8/22
This is such an amazing story! I love it when I find little gems like this hidden in the archives.
You have such a gift for writing, and I never saw the twist coming that she already was in her reality and I usually spot things like that a mile off!
I love your characterisations, you had Hermione down to a tee, and your interpretations of alternate characters were fantastic. I usually hate Lavendar no matter what form she takes, but I really enjoyed yours.
I also think my favourite part of the whole thing was that Hermione doesn’t have sugar in her tea. Finally someone sees sense! She’s the daughter of two dentists; if she isn’t allowed sweets it’s highly unlikely she’s going to have 3 sugars or honey or something stupid in her tea even once she is living away at Hogwarts! I never had sugar in my tea as a child and I can’t stand it as an adult, I’m so against it I can even tell if it’s been stirred with someone’s sugary spoon. Vile.
Rant aside, I really loved this story and I’ve never seen something even remotely similar so bonus points for originiality! I hope you return to writing one day, you are really talented.

Ok I really enjoyed reading this. It was very interesting to see how one change (James dying instead of Lily), led to an entirely different world. Intrigued that you ended it with a scene involving Harry and Hermione rather than Hermione and Draco - their story felt a little unfinished. And why did Harry want to befriend Hermione so badly? All in all, it was a great read though - thanks for sharing!

Ooooh great reveal! And that was a massive price to pay.

Loved the discourse on the importance of reading and it was lovely to see how Hermione and Lavender became friends.

Oh my gosh. Great red herrings because I did not see that coming.

It's really interesting seeing how Harry could have turned out with only Lily and a stepdad - and how different his reaction to Sirius is.

This Second Task was far scarier than in the book! Reminiscent of The Hunger Games with the screaming - which I always found torturous. Hermione did so well to make it through.

Poor Hermione! What a way to discover it - but surely she would have had SOME correspondence with her family over that term?

The First Task was great!

Oh, I knew word about their hug would somehow spread. Poor Draco is still not secure enough to at least talk to Hermione before jumping to conclusions, but that was a very swift and straightforward (adorable) apology. In front of witnesses, no less!

Actually, I do not like storries of HP/DM. But here evrything is just natural and good. The storry itself is brilliant in language and events. Thank you for a couple of days of nice time with good book.
