Yes, finally a Dramione story where “the Slytherin Sex-god” get what he deserves (which isn’t Hermione)! :-D “Uncle Dodo”! Haha – I’ll be guessing that Draco isn’t very fond of Teddy!
I never understood Dramione – I can’t see, how anyone could consider Draco attractive; he’s, though not evil, (in my opinion) a pathetic bully (who’s never described as being particularly good-looking). Even if Draco would change after the battle, people tend to forget – not only has Draco bullied Hermione, but they had been fighting the opposite side in a war.
Then again – I’ve never read a Dramione-story, since I usually give up before finishing the summary – it’s nearly always something like “after her fiancé, Ronald Weasley, cheated on her with Lavender Brown, Hermione seeks comfort in….”. When did Ron become the cheating bastard, and Draco the nice, caring guy? Why would Hermione ever choose Draco, when she was Ron?
I think you captured the Malfoy’s exactly as I would imagine them after the war; they would have to, officially, give up on the whole ‘mudbloods are scum’-idea. But they will not suddenly change into nice people!
My only issue, is you Blaise. We only know very little about him, but from what we do know, I think he’s slightly out of character. Pansy told Blaise (in HBP, about Ginny) “Even you think she's good looking, don't you, Blaise, and we all know how hard you are to please!”. Hermione’s never been described as being particularly good-looking; if Blaise’s that hard to please, I can’t see why he would be flirting with Hermione – especially considering Blaise’s reply: "I wouldn't touch a filthy blood traitor like her whatever she looked like." If he wouldn’t touch Ginny because she was a blood traitor, I doubt he would go anywhere near Hermione, who is a “mudblood”. Other than that, brilliant story – and I guess you could always argue, that Blaise only said that, to impress his fellow Slytherins, or that he had changed after the battle. :-)
Are you ever going to make a Draco/Ginny-parody? :-) Personally, I would love to see Ginny bat-bogey-hex Draco (again).

I’ve never given much thought to how Hermione, or anyone else for that matter, would deal with all the horrible things that have happened to them. It makes sense that she would want to confront those past demons and I’m glad that you included how Ron helped her to do it. I am also very pleased to see that Dobby got the Order of Merlin, first class. His death was the only one in all the books to make me cry and the fact that he received that honor is wonderful. Your characterization of everyone was also really well done. My favorites were how pointed out the similarities and differences between Andromeda, Bellatrix, and, especially, Narcissa.
This was another very well written story. I always love reading what you have.

Hi, you are an author that has come highly recommended by a good friend on fanfiction, saying how well you worked the characterisation and kept in line with the spirit of JKR, and I'm glad to say I haven't been let down by these high expectations. This was brilliant!
I thought you did a good job with Zabini, given that we don't know much about him from the books, he was a believable person, very much Slytherin but not some sort of generic loser. Hermione was great, her recollections were very visual, and I felt very sorry for her stood in the room by herself.
A really great oneshot, beautifully written and a joy to read. Thank you.
Love arwenjanelilylyra x

It was nice to read about Hermione facing the past and "laying one ghost to rest" and of course very funny in the second part. Liked it very much!

Haha, cracked me up! First I thought, Zabini and Hermione? but it was funny (:
At first I didn't want to read this story, because of the pairing you put down above the story, I don't like draco/hermione fics, but then I read your bio and it said you hated them also, so I thought it was an other sort of fic. Turns out I was right! Hehe. But maybe you could change it, many people would otherwise be misleaded..
Again, very funny story! Wish there was some way I could see the pictures ;)

This looks like it's going to be a great story. I loved the gold coin and giggles almost as hard as Hermione over poor Zabini and Draco.- Mae

Blaise Zabini as Hermione's assistant? Didn't he become a Slug club member based solely on his mother's wealth acquired from her many husbands? Then why does he need to work anyway? In Half-Blood Prince his character indicates it is very difficult to impress him. Besides he was one of Draco's friends even if he was not very close with him. I don't know if he supported Voldemort or remained neutral in the war. This shows that he couldn't possibly be a gossiper. As for the part concerning him showing womanizing tendencies, even if it true, I don't think he would mess with other people's girlfriends, especially if those women tend to have higher authority over him. I think his character is Bizarre. Wouldn't the coin be placed at Dobby's grave rather than at Malfoy Manor? When I read the summary and the characters listed, I know that this story was not a Draco/Hermione pairing but just interactions. I was right. Over all the story was very good and funny. You are a very good writer.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Hermione needed that, all of it, in just that way. I love that anytime the Malfoys go into that room, they'll see Dobby and be reminded that it was their cruelty that sent him to the Right side. I do hope that there are other portraits of Dobby through out the Wizarding World. Harry would have one in his study, another at Hogwarts, Hermione surely would have one in her office, and one at Shell Cottage, Dobby would love to look after Bill's children. ;-)
PS The Portbook is awesome.
