What a lovely, bitter sweet, sad but hopeful story! One of the most real pieces of fan fiction I've read. Thank you for sharing.

I wasn't a huge fan of your style at first, but the way you conveyed grief and their relationship captivated me. I got especially teary at the epilogue because it was very true to what life is. I was really moved by the realism of your work.

A friend recommended this fic, and I'm so happy she did. Your characters seemed very real to me, and I love the way you wrote the arc of their story. A brilliant story by anyone's measure!

This is an absolutely brilliant story. Your use of tense is wonderfully done, and it all flows so seamlessly, so realistic, that it's just like reading reality. Well done.

I liked it. At first I found the style of writing abrupt and thought I wouldn't want to read the story but it seemed to reflect Hermione's sadness and I was sucked in almost straight away, I couldn't put it down.

Sweet story of recovery.

Wow that was sad all the way through maybe melancholy is the right word. Thanks for a well written story.

Because kicking her out of their lives was so incredibly "loving"... Hermione's parents are assholes; she's better off without them.

oh shit. man. MAN. sometimes you just. the crappiest stories have the best summaries sometimes (not this in the first respect) but sometimes the story fits the summary or well even exceeds it. I always get drawn into these stories. Where it's real life just... depression. I can't stop reading and I feel... odd at the end. Realizing that they went through a fucking war and not many people write about reality. Thank you for a wonderful story.

I loved the realism in this story. The subtle progression of their romance, the vagaries of life. It was not overly emotional, which I think is what made it seem so authentic. I appreciate the well paced and restrained writing. I have a feeling this fic will stick with me for a long time. Thanks for sharing!

I applaud you!

I loved this :)
I love the soft voice in which you spin your tale.
I love the realism with which you imbued the characters; the emotions and bouts of prickliness were just so.
What initially felt like a slow start turned out to simply be a period of adjustment for your gentle writing style, which I have come to appreciate.

What a beautiful, spare story. I had a lovely afternoon enjoying your prose. Thank you.

This was absolutely lovely. Very realistic and quite quiet.
