| The Siege chapter 1 . 5/28
This is gorgeous, excruciatingly. I could feel the emotion - the love and regret and pain. Still, cheating. :/ I don't think I could ever get over cheating. And despite the fact that Draco truly, truly regretted what happened and he was drunk and yada yada, and they're really in love and everyone makes mistakes - cheating is something I don't think I'll ever be able to stomach. I don't know - I'm torn. On the one hand, they're so sweet together. On the other, CHEATING. How can she possibly forgive him for that? Not just kissing, not even just sleeping with someone, but sleeping with an EX...how can she still trust him? Even if they work out, he still cheated on her, you know?
Ah...but human beings do stupid things for love. :)
| Antediluvian Poet chapter 1 . 5/21
I've read your reviews for this oneshot, and I think people are focusing too much on the cheating aspect. Because this piece was beautiful, stunning, fluid, intimate and above all, brutally honest.
I take this story the way Hermione took Draco back; flaws and all. Not that there were actual flaws. Relationships are complicated, and this piece captured that perfectly. Poeple may have their own opinions, but what matters here is Hermione's opinion. I felt, in the in the little words you used, her choice was oddly logical, in an emotional sense. She hadn't given him all of herself, and towards the end, you made it so that Draco seemed sincere and sorry. I like the all or nothing aspect of it all. She's truly putting herself on the line, all of herself, because love is illogical, addictive and completely consuming.
In regards to your writing, it was pure poetry. There was a calming flow which contradicts the actual events, but this somehow only makes the emotions stronger. I loved your use of modules, your introductory paragraphs for each section, and how you managed to weave an allegorical mood throughout the entire piece. Also, there was a nice feeling of roundness and completedness towards the end. Your opening paragraph set the tone beautifully, promising a story of intenal conflict and emotions, rather than the importance of actions.
I could probably go on about this piece, but my battery is about to run out, and I wanted you to know that across the world, you had managed to bring me on a voyage so wonderful, it leaves a beautiful after taste.

It makes me wanna hurl. How she just takes him back. It was horrid. The feeling was there, but god, woman, kick him in the nuts for thinking of fucking someone else then leave the cheater for good. I'd rather see Hermione brought home another guy and fuck him for Draco to see that's she's not a prude and that he's an arse and for him to know what it is like before he spits verbal diarrhea that she needs to forgive him.
Good story, horrible ending.

i'm feeling kind of torn. I like this because it's beautifully written. But at the same time, cheating, in my opinion, is the ultimate betrayal in relationships. I've been in Hermione's position and let me tell you, it is the most shittiest, hurtful, crap i've ever felt. I STILL don't forgive him. I understand she loves him, but girl, you gotta love YOURSELF and realize you do NOT need a man - at least men like this. If you love someone, you wouldn't go around having sex with other girls. It just wouldn't feel right to me. Idk, maybe because this type of situation has been personal, i kind of wanted Hermione to keep her dignity, and for Drake to actually PROVE he regretted what he did.

I've read some of your other fics and was thoroughly impressed. Not so much with this one, but I suppose everyone lays a bad egg sometime or another. Hermione is stronger than how you characterized her and Draco is a ponce. She caved after five days. That's weak. And once that trust is broken in a relationship, you can never say you "know" it will never happen again. If you've been cheated on that is. It is the ultimate betrayal. The ultimate act of disrespect and lack of love. Leaves bad feelings in my stomach. Good job with your other fics though

five days? disappointing.
| Guest chapter 1 . 12/21/2011
I'm sorry... Five days? This Hermione is seriously pathetic. These two deserve each other. The man with no respect for his partner and the woman with no respect for herself. This left a terrible taste in my mouth.

He did it once, I hope it doesn't happen again.

Sigh I really don't get it, he said he loved her, if you love someone you DON'T go sleeping with someone else like she said, sex is something different than kissing. And huh? It meant nothing? That just bullocks, so if it meant nothing its ok? It was a drunk mistake? What the hell ? When is being drunk an good excuse to cheat? Yeah never ! That one of the lamest most stupid unforgivable excuse ever! You love her? You don't cheat and that's that! No one time, not ever! And what is wrong with her ? God , I really hate weak people, he is angry at her :x ( he has no right) and she still gives in? Oh yeah just be angry for a few days and than all is well? Dont een punish him? Don't let him make it up? So basically he got of the hook for cheating just like that :x. God where is your self-respect? Weak weak weak ?
[You can cope with his mistakes, his flaws don't define him. You want all of him and that includes the things he's done wrong and all the things he does right.] oh right cheating was a mistake, you accept his flaws o_O' you accept his cheating , right, no dignity.
What makes you think he'll won't cheat again, because hey she'll let him of the hook anyway, he never even had to leave her place. God I would have thrown him out and never take him back anymore! She said she trust him, yeah she trusted him before and look where it got her. Once a cheat, there is always chance for a second and a third especially if he ges away with it that easily. Uh I get soooo frustrates for such things, I really do believe she did it to herself if it ever happens again. Her stupid mistake for taking him back. Bah. Uhuh
Srr xd this just had to get out:p I liked the story until she got weak xd and than I got frustrated and angry xd

Wow. You write beautifully.
I love this story.
This might be my favorite out of all your stories.
Though I was hoping for some curses and hexes directed at Draco, haha.

Nicely written narrative. I loved the opening statement about the steamliner, and the running line about the seashell. The story was very realistic, the way hermione responded to draco's infidelity. Thank you for this dear!

I absolutely cannot stand second-person writings.
But I have nothing but adoration for this piece. It's wonderful, and emotional, and all-together brilliant. You've taken such a traumatic and crushing experience, drawn the reader in, and made them feel it anew. I love it.
Thank you so much for sharing such an amazing piece with us. I plan on reading the rest of your stories, and I'll be looking forward to more works from you! :D

this is the second story I've read for you and I found it just as amazing as the first :) the vividness with which you describe Hermione's internal struggle is nothing short of outstanding, much like your ability to create a happy but realistic ending out of such a tragedy :)
