It's a wonderful story and very well written, however if I had known it wasn't complete I would have never read it. You really should put a warning somewhere, I mean you haven't even started a sequel. I hate reading abandoned give.

I'm really glad to have found your story. You're a brilliant writer, and I look forward to reading more by you! I love believable and unique original characters, so this chapter just made me want to jump for joy.

I'm really enjoying your story so far. I'm surprised by how much I like the interactions between Draco and Ron. I'm on chapter 22 at the moment and it's really bothering me that I don't understand the following passage:
Granger sighed. "It doesn't. The only thing in genetics that *can*, is the presence of wizarding ancestry far enough back it's been forgotten - which if the theory still holds, still leaves out male muggle-born - or spontaneous genetic mutation."
Severus smirked, but had only opened his mouth when Granger cut him off.
"Don't even think it, Professor. That's beneath even you!" she retorted, sounding angry, but looking faintly amused.
He watched her wryly. "Even me?" he asked, his voice dry.
Granger ducked her head, but not before he saw the blush begin, and a sheepish expression cross her face. As soon as it had come, however, it was gone, and the girl plowed ahead, apparently very willing to simply ignore the gaffe she'd made.
Severus wasn't so sure he was. Never the less, he held his tongue, in favor of a sneak attack at a later time. Besides, he had a better question to ask.
What was Snape going to say? I don't understand the joke and it's really bugging me that it went over my head. Please rescue my sanity and explain it to me.

Such a great story, I know it's been years but I hope you're still thinking of writing a sequel? Pretty pretty pretty please ;)

I really liked the birth scene (though I wish all my births had been that quick, lol) Her reactions really had me giggling, when you're in that situation you never know quite what you're going to say next. And poor Severus, of course you get to take it all out on the father...in fact I think that's one of your only perks at that point in time? But he was so far out of his element and didn't have a bloody clue what was happening.
Awesome chapter, I loved it :D

Yeah I noticed one "squid" in an earlier chapter and now every time I read "squib", I think "squid" (along with accompanying mental images, hahaha)
Actually I'd think Lucius Malfoy would rather be related to squids for that matter ;)

Oh bloody hell! So no-one thought the girl who'd been suffering from stress caused amnesia needed maybe, just maybe, be reminded of the fact that she was pregnant? It's heartrending to watch Hermione fall apart like that, thinking she's been "bad" :'(
| jensteed chapter 16 . 7/31/2014
This is a really great story. It's the first I've read with Ron and Draco (definitely not a pairing I'd have gone looking for, lol) but I like how they drew together under such extreme stress and how much more tactful Ron is than usual, that he actually uses his brain, haha. They're very sweet together.
What happened to Hermione is awful but the scene where she ran to Snape and her reasoning was brilliant. I can't wait to keep reading and see where it goes.

I finished this story - fantastic, by the way - but had to come back to this chapter to review. Up until Hermione says "Oooh. Dizzy" I nearly couldn't breathe for how hard I was laughing. It was wonderful to see Snape so far out of his element (the wee boyo isn't a potion to he brewed, after all) and yet so steadfastly true to his character. Bravo.
The Draco/Ron pairing wasn't one I had seen before, and I wasn't quite sure what to think of it when I saw it in the summary, but it worked for this story and was really enjoyable to read. Congratulations on a story well done. I look forward to more out of you.
