Armate chapter 31 . 11/4/2014
Hello Dyce,

I am absolutely impressed by your incredible storytelling. Wow. The dialogue, all the characters (so realistic and deep and really likeable), the plot, the difficult questions (guilt, responsibility - not only those from/about Hermione)... I loved how you included scenes with so many varied people, also minor characters. All of these scenes were beautiful and meaningful. I loved how slowly you revealed the past, how visible the scars of war are in your stories, how you showed us the impact fighting together had on everyone... how wonderfully subtle you show emotions and develop relationships. I have very rarely seen anything like this. Totally blown away. :)

Another thing that was just beautiful was the whole pregnancy, birth, and how she was with Martin... My child came via an emergency Caesarean and I nearly lost him; what I had dreamed about to be very similar to what you describe here was highly traumatic for all involved in the end... and it was so good to read so realistically about a pregnancy where everything goes well and as it should. Thank you for that. It was a little step towards healing for me.

There was a lot more, but I will finish here. Ah. I wish the pictures Colin made were real, you described them so beautifully... :)

Have a lovely day, and thank you for an extraordinary story!

Armate

Yay! I do love me some slow-burn. And all the characterizations were lovely, especially our dear Draco. Your Severus was extremely Snapeish, and even Ron and Harry were well-done (poor Ron often gets bashed in HG/SS fic, doesn't he?).

Thanks so much for writing this!

interesting story, one never did lie to get attition and calling his a idiots brother does not help, and like how even ron was there for hermoine, good story.

Lovely story. I particularly enjoy the way you develop the growing maturity of the characters (finally, a Harry growing up!). Thank you for all the work you put into this!

Brilliant story so far, I'm really enjoying it. I haven't come across Dumbledore as a ghost before so I can't wait to see what shenanigans he gets up to, haha

severus is fat? cool :-)

Otherwise, so far as he could tell, he looked much the same - aside from the terrible indignity of a slightly thickened waistline, which his robes fortunately concealed.

"That's revolting, it really is. You two are grandparents now, you shouldn't still be getting all romantic." Draco grinned. "Of course, you two have always been disgustingly sentimental."

there GRANDPARENTS NOW? how did that happen i mean Martin was a baby before but i guess YEARS have pasted? is draco still in love with hermione? how many children so hermione and severus have? also is draco married? are hermione and severus okey? health wise? is there a sequal?

"Little something we've been working on." Fred displayed a small bottle, smirking. "Doesn't have an official name yet, but we've been calling it the Anti-Censor Solution."
"The what?"
"It lowers the inhibitions," George explained. "Like alcohol, but without nearly as many side-effects. Lets out your inner... whatever." He grinned at his brother. "Fred has an inner exhibitionist. First time we tested it, he ran the length of Diagon Alley starkers."
Fred chuckled. "And I wish I remembered it. The early batches made the tester forget all about whatever had happened while they were under the influence. We thought it'd be funnier, though, if they could remember later. So George remembers every happy detail of what happened when he asked Parvati and Padma Patil if they'd be interested in a threesome."

that was in the drink severus had THATS why he cant rememeber it? but why can hermione?

Jealous of your friends child that you are meant to be godfather to? what kind of friend let alone godfather is he (harry)? i mean Ron would have been a better godfather! atleast he loves etc the baby and who would in there right minds be jealous of a BABY?
hermionefan1983 chapter 23 . 7/31/2014
so apart from ginny (which doesnt count because she was there a the birth and was like the nurse) severus was the first one to hold him?! not harry or ron! thank god for that!
hermionefan1983 chapter 23 . 7/31/2014
no offence but the name "Martin" is NOT a nice name AT ALL!

"One more... just one more... that's it... there!" There was a thin wail, and Stella held up a small, sticky pink form. "Congratulations, Hermione. You have a son."
Hermione managed to sit up just a little more, watching anxiously as Ginny wiped the baby mostly clean and wrapped him in the blanket her parents had sent. "I want to see him."
"Here." Ginny smiled, tucking the little bundle into Hermione's arms. "He's beautiful."
He was beautiful. He had a tuft of dark hair, a little squashed face, and a tiny button nose. As she cuddled him, he stopped wailing and his eyes opened. They were an odd, murky greenish-brown, and they stared up at her in a puzzled sort of way.
Hermione kissed his sticky forehead gently. "Hello."

-
The door banged open and Harry jumped up, chess forgotten. Ron lurched to his feet too, wincing and rubbing his knees, as Ginny leaned out of the door. She looked tired and there was a smear of something reddish-brown on her cheek, but she was beaming. "The baby's here, and it's a boy! Come and see!"
Harry felt an odd lurching in his stomach, and he frowned a little as he followed Ginny up the stairs. He was a godfather. Hermione was a mother. He had a little sort-of family to be part of.
He should definitely be feeling happier. Shouldn't he?
SEVERUSD SHOULD BE THERE TO SEE THE BIRTH AND GET TO HOLD THE BABY FIRST NOT HARRY NOT GINNY AND NOT RON BUT SEVERUS!

"I wanted to tell her how I felt... how I feel!" Draco turned away, half raising his clenched fist. "But I didn't... I wasn't sure if she cared. If she'd... laugh. I just wanted to get an idea of how she felt, just a hint, and I know I shouldn't have done it, but I looked just for a second." He shook his head violently. "She was thinking about the baby. And you. About it being yours."

but she didnt meantion severus by name in her thoughts? "It did. And thank you, it was a beautiful gift." She looked up, meeting his eyes as she smiled up at him. It had been a lovely gift, and she was glad he thought she'd looked nice in it. The baby kicked and she touched her stomach gently. I wish your daddy had seen me in it... would he think I looked nice?
