I'm not sure how I feel about this story overall just yet, apart from to say that it was interesting, and this is kind of similar to my life right now (the mental state, not the questionable imprisonment), so I can relate.

ha ha ha. I love Malfoy in this, and how violent and angry and trapped Hermione feels. I loved how they got together and how she'd kiss him every time she relaxed and how she nursed him back to help and was planning to fake his death with him. I am still curious as to what Goyle and him were planning to buy from Borgin and Burkes, but the hints gvien were enough to get the idea. I read this awhile ago and only now got the chance to review, but I reread this again just for the heck of it and loved it even more. I really like your writing style and would've loved a written out scene of Malfoy being interrogated as to where he was, and that the human memory is faulty and maybe all of the memories in it were fake let him aviod telling them where he was. Brilliant. :)

This was creepy and messed up and yet so perfect. I really enjoyed it. Some days (ok most days) I feel somewhat insane myself so I rather liked getting into Hermione's head.

This fic was marvelous.

Okay. I absolutely loved hermione's self growth and the Malfoy you created and this twisted world and all this angst but I also read all the way to the end expecting pretty bookish blonde babies. But dont you dare change anything about this story, because it was perfect.

I have to say you kept me glued to reading this story even though I was getting alerts to some of the other stories I had been following, I ignored them for days so I could finish this one (in the limited time i get to read for fun!). Well done!

Ah, in the ever-growing world of Dramione fanfiction there are some things that are still constant. One such constant is the high quality of riptey's writing, It is original, interesting, well-written, arresting. Sucker Punch is the first multi-chapter fic that I've read from this author but I have been reading her (?) one-shots for years. riptey has a very distinctive style, the way of constructing and relating to her characters that stands out, at least to me.
It is a little difficult to put into words but the way she describes the relationship between Hermione and Draco is both bittersweet and complicated and yet fluffy. It is not so much a lovestory as a process of evolution or a transmutation. Sucker Punch is a good example of it.
If you look at the story objectivly there is nothing new there. The plot of putting two people together in close quartes to work out their issues has been done before so has the Hermione-hates-her-job story and yet I've never read a story like Sucker Punch before. Partly because the set up itself is so original but also because riptey made her characters so real, so human.
I love the angry, bitter Hermione. There is a part when she fantasies about killing everyone and the greeting the dawn. On the whole, the story is worth reading for Hermione's inner thought alone. It was such a brilliant move to put them in cursive and just add throughout the text. Her mind is a rather scary place.
On a more personal note, I can really relate to Hermione's boredom with other people's children. Been there, done that.
It is difficult to describe Sucker Punch and do it justice. It is funny but the humor is rather special. There is darkness and insanity but offset with brilliant dialog. It is an amazing story, one of the very best in the fandom. Dramione as never seen before.

This was so perfect. It was a good balance of funny and serious. I love that they didn't actually end up together, but that they did. Honestly one of the best Dramione stories I've read in awhile.
