Reviews for Love's Illusions
hpfan addict chapter 1 . 8/29/2016
I usually don't read infidelity fics on principal, simply because that sorta thing has always been like a squick, or a squee–to me. But this somehow caught my attention? And imagine my utter surprise to discover it not only quotes, but includes an except from a very beloved Joni Mitchell song!? It's incredible to stumble upon something like that. Anyways, despite the two infidel's, I thought this was really well written. It has a ring of sincerity to it, the realism displayed is quite impressive. Her internal dialogue and self-loathing were spot-on! So —well done, for that! But more than that, I loved the humanity captured within the line's of this story! In less than a thousand word's, you manage to convey all this pain, and misery, and grief, coupled with the intensity of an unexpected tryst, and ultimately the repercussions!? Cannot express how impressed I was with a story entirely based on a topic that I generally find exasperating and thoroughly unappealing!? Extremely well done! Cheers!;-)

I really think you should continue this story, it's good enough to stretch a few more chapters.

I love it.

Ideas for continuation (merely suggestions):

Draco's point of view

Others (friends, co-workers, family)opinions on Draco and Hermione's marriages both positive and/or negative

Rose and Scorpius's opinions of each other and the other's family

Ron and Astoria's opinions on their marriages (positive

or negative)

Either way you do it, keep up the good work. I really do like this story.

Excellent one-shot and what a way to incorporate that bit of Joni Mitchell's insight into the truth that plagues just about every relationship that was begun with undiscussed and blind hope that never materialized. Cheers, Bel
Emerald-Kisses chapter 1 . 9/23/2008
I really liked this. I think it would be great if you wish to further develop this by making it into a chapter story and I would back you 100% of the way. You write beautifully and have a wonderful talent.

If you want an idea of how to continue it, we could go with a cliche thing, like she sees Draco again a while later, say a few months later or something? Perhaps they're forced to sit together for a dinner party or she's force to work with him on something and they have to deal with the tension of their attraction to each other. Just throwing a few ideas out there if you want any.

I think this would make a wonderful chapter story and you definitely have the ability and talent to do it justice.

But, remember: you're the author. Do what you want with your fic.
Mione's Diaries chapter 1 . 9/23/2008
The whole thing from Draco's side? Perhaps a continuation of the affair? A confrontation of either Draco or Hermione by the other's spouse? Just some suggestions! Good job!
Marmalade Fever chapter 1 . 9/23/2008
Very nicely done, my dear. I thought it was kind of funny that Hermione didn't have time to hear all about the time turners. :P Nice angst and tone.
