| Acromania chapter 15 . 11/10
I personally love that she ended up with Charlie. Gives me all the right feelings. But mostly your fic was catalystic in regards to the whole Edward/Bella theme and Edward's behaviour throughout the original series. I hated his overbearing manner and to see him put in his place is fantastic!
On another note I want to congratulate you on the way you showed Hermione's life "after Forks". A clever way to show both sides and being involved in the thought process. Really well done!
| Awfulwaffel chapter 15 . 10/24
so, I don't like the ending because they don't have end up together. Hermione does and she stays true to cannon in that she wouldn't just abandon all her dreams for a guy. howevee, the rest is really good!

Well I loved it
| Barzallai chapter 15 . 8/2
Great story, very interesting to read. I loved the ending. Thank you for posting.
| Luumus chapter 4 . 7/30
I don't think this story is for me. And these are the reasons:
By chapter 4 Charlie has inexplicably disappeared in the car and somehow repaced by Draco Malfoy which is so OOC without apparent explanation, that he could have been named Bob Smith and I wouldn't have known the difference. Also there's a LOT of telling instead of showing so far, and excessive exposition in dialogue has been known to ruin books/movies. I mean they basically tell their life stories in question/answer format during a couple of chapters. It all sounds very stilted and awkward.
Apparently by your reviews you wrote an unexpected and not at all cliché ending, so kudos for that but I don't think I'll get to it. It's really not for me.
Cheers and best of luck with future works

I really like this ending. I was expecting a Edward/Hermione ending, but it honestly wouldn't be true to her character to become a Vampire. That teaching/mastery position was just too sweet an offer to
give up. Suffice to say, I thought this ending was unique.
| Lauramichca chapter 15 . 4/21
Well you did warn everyone. And Hermione made her feelings about being turned known early on, so it would have been a sad end if they had got together in this story.
I think your critics only tiny source of justification for their arguments would be the categories - romance and family without angst or tradgedy or some-such, suggests that the characters listed may see a happy ending instead.
But again you did reveal that it would not happen this time. Though I do admit, when you did the final time jump I thought perhaps I had misunderstood and that Charlie had died and the still young (for a witch) Hermione would would allow a courting/love/changing after grieving for a time. but you kept to your plot and I think that is better for the story.
Thank you for sharing!

I'm a few years late, but it's an absolutely fabulous story! I love your portrayal of Hermione - many "Hermione is Bella's cousin" crossovers tend to make her really OOC, but it was realistic and incredibly well written. Thank you for such an incredible piece of work!
| bluechipmunk chapter 15 . 3/7
Just wanted to say I loved this piece! I'm so happy with the way it ended, and I think it was very well written. I'll definitely be looking into your other stories!

Hello! I know I'm such a late reader and this story is several years old but I just wanted to say that I loved it. I love reading crossovers like this and I was really happy with this one, especially the ending. I like reading about Edward and Hermione together as much as the next person but I'll admit, from the beginning of your story I was leaning more towards Charlie already (the fact that I absolutely adore Charlie Weasley had nothing to do with that at all, nope). I agree that Hermione would have been happier with this ending, mutual feelings with someone she trusts and trusts her back, and a life with someone who can let her live her life to the fullest. Anyway, it was really refreshing to see this kind of ending and if I didn't say it enough times, I loved this story very much. Thank you for writing it.

that was really messed up for Edward, totally his fault but damn. really well written and interesting story.
| Guest chapter 15 . 9/18/2016
I very much enjoyed your story, it was a rather unconventional ending, and not at all what I expected, but it was very good and true to the characters. Thanks for writing it and sharing!

i hate how you've made hermione and ginny bitches, you've kind of ruined them

I hope when Charlie said it was rare in the US, it meant he just didn't know it
