This was just beautifully written. I’m so glad you didn’t delete it. I loved this story, it was one of the most unique Tomiones I’ve ever read. My mind is also blown that you wrote this at 16.

I sped through your story over two days. I've fallen back into fanfiction after a decade long spell and having shipped dramione, am enjoying your tomione version very much.
May I just say that your writing as a 16 year old, particularly reflected in the psychological profiles you built for your main characters is impressive. The supporting cast, not so much, with definitely a few Huh? moments , but I enjoyed the cammadarie and the sense of fun (reminiscent in the earlier HP books) all the same.
I respect that you've placed warnings at the start of your story regarding abusive relationships. I think we've all become more aware of this as we get older and have more experiences. Certainly at 16, or even 25 I can't claim to the emotional insight that I do in my thirties. I've come across a few tomione fics where the author has abandoned it due to a growing distast for writing about power imbalance/abuse in the relationship, or not wishing to appear to glorify that to their readers. I am therefore very glad that your piece is finished. I believe as long as the majority of your readers can separate fiction from reality, if you have a story to tell, please don't feel you need to censor yourself. I think written well and with nuance, a story featuring distasteful elements doesn't have to necessarily advocate or glorify it.
Through providing Tom with a redemption arc by making him self aware of his poor choices (remorse) I think you have done the opposite of glorifying bad behaviour. If someone continues to romanticise bad behaviour off the back of that major theme in your story, well, you can lead a horse to water...

Hello hello,

I just wanted to say thank you for keeping this fic up for so many years. I haven't touched HP fics with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole in almost 10 years (trauma), but have been coping with a toxic family member and found myself in want of a very specific sort of emotional cocktail to help with my grieving, and I remembered this old story of yours that I once so loved. Turns out I still do.

While I see that this story makes you flinch to think of now, it really is a great depiction of how people with toxic behaviors fail over and over again when trying to unlearn those behaviors; it seems endless. Their relationship isn't healthy and often unhappy, but it strikes me as a real *redemption* story. While I don't have hope for my relative finding healthy or fully sane paths in life, it's been indulgent and needed to see someone successfully do so in fiction. (Also, what amazing writing for being 16 at the time and I can only imagine you're even better now. But I don't plan on reading any other HP fics. Probably ever.)

Thanks for leaving it here. 3 Wishing you all the best in life.
