Woah...things just got real...

I absolutely love this story! I hope you haven't abandoned it, and I really hope that you'll update again soon!(:
| sarakitty chapter 43 . 10/3
Wow, this ending was chilling! When i started this I didn't know it was abandoned so I was a little bummed to reach the end, but I don't regret reading it. This was very well written and the plot is a perfect mix of complexity. If you ever decide to come back to it I'll definitely read!
| Calm Down Sir chapter 1 . 9/29
The writing/grammar itself is GREAT, being very picky about these things I am grateful. However, i really don't like the way certain characters are portrayed, especially Hermione. When she says she doesn't 'have to be a genius all the time', that goes against everything that is Hermione! She is the epitome of focus and preparation and overall genius!? Her being so sexually active and the drinking and choice of attire would be a bit more enjoyable had her canon personality been a ruling factor. Not to say Hermione wouldn't have casual drunk trysts with men, but the image of her dressed in sparce clothes walking into an Order meeting is just..no.

You know that burqa statement was really fucking offensive just because you have no experience on what the culture is doesnt mean you have to say things like that. Wearing a burqa doesnt mean your opressed or anything. You have a choice on wether or not you want to wear a burqa. Women who wear a burqa are not opressed. Period.

It took me several sleepless nights to get through this fic but it was definitely worth it! You are AMAZING, ok, amazing. Your Remus is quite possibly the best Remus I have ever read. I love the interactions between Sirius and Hermione (and Lupin, a dangerous addition to the mix), but I also love them as separate characters. Hermione is perfect, bold and fierce but also vulnerable I should say, as much as she'd like to hide it. (And, hey, some good smut you've got there.) I like how you didn't go too far with the tragic backstory but it fits really snugly in, if I can say so about so delicate a theme. I also LOVE Draco. Well I love him in general but I love how you're writing him (even though we've seen only a little of him so far). I mean, he is being himself. Perhaps I've read too many Dramione fics but I'm now really tired of seeing him as the violent death eater in the throes of passion/anguish of love and your perspective is really refreshing. He's so normal, so rational. I sooo hope he gets to do a little more! As to the OCs, I'm normally very wary of them but yours fit soooo well into the mix and are some really well-written characters. What I mean to say is, they are actually valuable to the plot, which is always appreciated. I think Hermione's parents stood out the most for me in their little episode, though Selena and Alexandra are obviously very good to - well, they've proven to be quite important havent they - and Enrico is quite a nice one as well.
In terms of the general plot I still wonder how on earth you managed to make it so complex but so natural at the same time. The reconstruction of Lily's death seems plausible enough as you have approached it from so many different angles.
I hope you might update soon enough -no pressure, though, obviously. I'm really looking forward to reading the next chapter. (And your other works.) Lots of love xxx

In the past 3 days I have only slept 10 hours. I could not stop reading. Its amazing. I love Hermione as this badass sex vixen. I always wondered what she would be like. I had a quick question, when Remus and Emily were staying at The Blacks house and Hermione told them that there was the TV to keep them entertained, is there supposed to be wards around the house? because i was under the impression that technology and magic did not mix, that's why there wasn't technology allowed at Hogwarts.
But i love this. Can't wait to read the next chapter. You are killing me with this cliff hanger
| Music of silence chapter 43 . 7/29
I just discovered your story and I got to say that it is one of the best I read in a long time. It's really original and well written and I can't wait to read the rest!
| Forensica X chapter 43 . 7/27
I found this little gem a couple of nights ago, and I am amazed I'd never heard of it before my illicit search for smut spat it at me.
You should give yourself a ton of credit, because not only is this well written, grammatically responsible, and delicious, it's got all the subtle imagination and femme kickassery every Hermione story deserves. I really hope you continue updating whenever you can.
Definitely understand the difficulty writing when everything else conspires against you, so thank you for doing it.
| Indyanna chapter 43 . 7/16
Before starting this I didn't know it was unfinished (I generally only read completed fics as I'm fairly impatient when reading haha) but I am definitely not regretting my decision - this is just simply superb. I really enjoy the re-telling of how Lily was killed, definitely adds a much appreciated difference to the vast majority of marriage law fics out there.
I've read the majority of your A/N's so I know you have a lot going on in your life but if you did have any spare time I would honestly be so thrilled to see an update, this cliffhanger is particularly suspenseful. However, I'm hooked so will definitely read your next chapter no matter when it is posted.
Random fluff - at one point in a chapter something was written as 'som4ething', I was reading this out to my husband at the time and read it verbatim without realising. He still laughs at me for it, hopefully it will give you a giggle too :)
| Jeb59 chapter 43 . 7/14
I like this story. Is it still alive? January update, Hope it is updated soon. Thanks
| Vedrane chapter 43 . 6/27
It took me some time to come to terms with the idea that you've changed me, but the thing is that there is no other way to put it.
I've read Playing the Players & Interviewing Casanova (I'll leave a proper comment, don't worry) in less time than I thought was possible and there's one thing I have to say: you're brilliant. Your writing is amazing, sharp and compelling, your psychological insight is powerful and can't stop myself from reading again and again. I could go on forever on your characterization of everyone but it'll be boring. 'You nailed it' would be more than appropriate.
I just hope you're fine. I'm looking forward to that next chapter, but mostly, I hope your life is fine, you have time to do what you love and want.
If you ever need to ask any question French (saw the few sentences you tried to write and they were unbearably cute), just send me a PM.
Hope to see you soon.

So I've now binge read all of this in 24 hours, and all I can say is "AH MAH GAWD! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?!" The feels. The feels. Poor broken, well, everyone. There is so much pain, which leads to so much beautiful hope. Well done, you beautiful author you.
Here's hoping you're able to update again soon.
Or, you know, just come get coffee with me and tell me everything that's about to happen. I'm not picky.

| ConantheBarbarian'sgirl chapter 8 . 6/9
I read the beginning chapters of this but I actually found it a bit too smutty. or maybe I'm just not used to seeing hermione written as promiscuous. meh ;(
