I've read a lot of Dramione fics. This one was so different from the rest and good. Hopefully Ron comes around. I'm going to pretend he does and that Harry defeats Voldy and the four of them are friends.

I've read a bunch of dramione's recently and I was pleasantly surprised by this. Breath of fresh air to see Draco much more willing to explore his connection with Hermione and drop his prejudice. Despite the open ending with Ron, I was also very happy to see that Hermione's relationship with Harry and Ron was depicted as precious and dependable, and Ron wasn't turned into an insenstive boyfriend (which is an anoying and overdone trope to get Hermione and Draco together.) The only thing that really bothered me was how often Hermione would force people (such as Ron after the breakup) to talk to her. It seemed a bit out of character to keep prying insensitively and obstinately when clearly she was in the wrong. I think I just have a problem with demanding answers from people (even like what she did with draco as their relationship developed) because it feels like something very entitled or arrogant people do, which is not how i envision Hermione. This is something I've seen a lot of dramione writers do so it's probably just built up and finally exploding with you. So sorry about that. But I loved your story, I swear. Thank you for a wonderful read.

I realize that this story is several years old and that my commentary might be moot but here it goes:
I really enjoyed this story. You have an interesting style and it served the narrative well. I also appreciate that you didn't make Ron a total jerk in this story. Many Dramione writers like to demonize Ron and turn him into something that he's not. Thank you for not doing that. In fact, I spent more time feeling anxious and sad for Ron than I did rooting for the main couple.
That said, I struggled to believe Draco's transformation. It felt a bit rushed to me and this probably affected how I viewed the main ship.
Still, I did enjoy it. :) Good job!

I really liked how realistic their friendship was here. I've noticed that people tend to make Harry and Ron into the bad guys, who immediately jump on Hermione for getting herself involved with Draco. Ron is understandable in most cases; I feel like his anger, while great, wasn't over-the-top or unwarranted. His character is very temperamental in the book and his dislike for Draco is a given, but I don't think it would be in his character to try and sabotage or hurt Hermione. Some authors depict Ron like that and I don't really agree with it. And Harry! He was actually rational and was as much of a friend to Hermione as he was to Ron. Which is, of course, true in the books, but somehow that gets lost in fanfiction, so I really liked your characterization of Harry, too.
However, I feel like Draco was relatively realistic. I do feel like his transformation was a bit too quick and it makes the story feel rather rushed. There were also some loose ends that could've been tied, including Ron's character, but at the same time, given how open-ended this story is overall, I'm sure that was your intention. Overall, I did enjoy reading this story. It was good. :)

Wonderful story. I loved your Latin quotes. I admire your decision to make Ron basically a nice guy (with a temper) and to make Hermione have to break his heart. I loved watching both Draco and Hermione struggle with having their ideas challenged. Draco's meeting with Snape was fantastic, esp. because Draco caught on to why Snape said what he said. This does feel like a prequel - so much is unknown about what the war will bring. I do think someone should obliviate Ron - it's too dangerous for Draco for Ron to know what he knows, but I loved that Ron figured out who Draco was from Hermione's comment about danger. Overall, a wonderful story.
