Thank you for this beautiful story ! Bellatrix's curse on Severus allowed a great and beautiful love story to be born between the wizard and Hermione...
See you soon, I hope :)

Lovely story and easy to read. I expected more smut with the M rating, and it did feel like some things happened quite quickly. Nice fic though!
| Gia chapter 23 . 4/18
Very good fan fiction. Humorous and serious the same time, and I love Lucius in this fan fiction. Especially as Hermiones adopted father

Loved the way it ended. Sorry it took so long for me to get to finishing it.

| Guest chapter 23 . 4/1
Thank you for sharing your story.
It was well written and had several original plot points.

Ohhh, what sweet epilogue! I do like their life together- it's what they both deserve!
You've written a really lovely story that played well with the useable bits of canon while neatly disregarding the foolish bits- brava! As I said earlier, I really, really appreciate that you've chosen to write a story where everyone comes together to defeat Moldypants rather than everyone splintering into lone-ranger death missions. For all that Dumbledore spoke of love, he showed very little of it, and indeed, only a surface understanding of how important it is. Your treatment of Snape- as well as the Malfoys, and Hermione- was far kinder than in the books; it was nice to not have them grimly march alone to their fates. I also really like that this wasn't super-hero Snape and Granger against the world- you kept their wider bonds of friendship, and they proved just as important as the romantic ones.
Well done, and looking forward to reading more from you!

lol, I totally would have made him grovel for a lot longer...still, he did fall into line quickly, and that's what counts in the end ;)

Fawkes! I love a good phoenix addition and need to write him into something.
Severus better have a damn good apology at the ready, because his rather callous disregard for Hermione's emotions over the year apart (he could feel her despair!) is not cool. Not cool at all!

I (kind of) get why Snape was like, 'no thanks!'- the gulf between them might as well be the Channel, and he's right, a bond doesn't make a relationship... but still. Ouch. Happy to see that she was able to pull out of the tailspin. Lucius was a little OOC, but then assisting Hermione only help him, so yeah.
I hope that we get to see how Snape handled the separation!

Well... that was a lot more sane (not to mention humane!) than the great battle of Hogwarts! Riddle's death made me giggle- love your use of amortentia. The way that you've written it fits in with canon quite nicely! But poor Longbottom was denied the glory of being the Snake-slayer, lol.
As for the last scene... glad to see that Snape hadn't descended into lashing-out bastard mode, and props to Hermione for keeping it together. Still, that rejection has got to burn.

Great chapter- the wand lore and adoption was fascinating. But man, what a risky move, placing Hermione with Narcissa- but given that Bella was ah, detained, a good plan. And so glad to see Severus and Hermione together again!
| Ms. Anthrop chapter 17 . 3/10
That poor, poor dragon! lol, what a horrid way to go!
Again, really like how you are weaving in parts of DH without the sheer insanity of the golden trio going it alone. This makes more sense, that's for sure!
Good on Lucius for helping Hermione- I'm curious to see how he manages. And what is Snape up to? How much has their bond faded? Can't imagine he's enjoying this...
