I've read a lot of these, but that was just… wow. Incredible. The characters were portrayed so remarkably, and I was spellbound the whole way through. Amazing

That was... AMAZING

Wow that was amazing

Love it, though they didn't end up together... But at least they're both happy, right?
| ArtChica chapter 1 . 7/26/2011
That was your *first?* The emotion in it was so rich and well-portrayed.
| Jc chapter 1 . 2/10/2010
I had a lump in my throat through nearly the whole thing. I loved it, absolutely beautiful. I think the only thing that could have been better was if Draco and Hermione had exchanged a small smile in the end at the train station. That would have had me bawling (: Great work!

There are tears in my eyes. Mostly because I'm an exceptionally emotional person, but also because this is the best Dramione I've ever read. You got them down to a science! This is exactly what I would have seen happening in the books because it's realistic and it's canon, and it's AMAZING!

its just so honest
| kk chapter 1 . 4/18/2009
that was great. touching. bravissima.
| Sevs-heart chapter 1 . 4/14/2009
That was the most powerful Dramione that I have ever read. Definately the most realistic one. This was touching, and perfectly compliant wtih canon, which I appreciated. Thank you for such an awesome story!

Yes, it's me. Finally the procrastinator has surfaced! I know I'm intolerable at times, but that's why you loves me. ;D
Anyway, this is probably.. No, this is the best thing you've ever written so far. And that is the absolute highest praise I can give you.
Really well edited, pretty much perfect I would say. It flows really well, thanks to conjunctions and good punctuation.
Brownie points for lime-ness!
It's massive too. Extra points.
The best part was the characterisation, but that was mostly what this oneshot focuses on. It's like... Sleepless In Seattle, if you forgive me for comparing it to a chick flick. The main couple only spend a small portion of time onscreen together, but it always feels like the other one is there. If you get what I mean. That's what this feels like.
The process of dealing with human emotions in the face of loss and tramau is a difficult one to deal with - especially as it is different for each person. I think you pretty much nailed it - and that is hard.
This isn't light reading, but it's angst, so it's not meant to be. You stopped it from becoming overly dramatic - which is always a danger. Everything was taken in small, believable steps which is why it's so damn big. ;D
Making it fit with the Epliogue was well handled. I liked it - loved it honestly. It really deserves more attention.

This was a beautiful read, really it was. I loved it, especially towards the end when you showed us the interior of Ron's driving skills. Haha
| tarantularex chapter 1 . 2/9/2009
Great story. Hope to see more from you.
| ElenaDarren chapter 1 . 2/7/2009
That was awesome! 100% better than prefect! That was your first Draco/Hermione story? It was great!
| Donna chapter 1 . 2/7/2009
This story was absolutely amazing. I have whole new appreciation for Draco and Hermione:)
