Magical story! So much emotional angst but you really buttered it up with mutual affection. I especially love all of Ginny’s dialogue with HG, SS and DM.

Oh this was lovely. You've a deft hand at dialogue and I easily blew though this in a few hours. I love more novel takes on the Marriage Law, and I admit I wish there were more HG/SS that dealt with pregnancy loss, as I often look to fics I relate t for catharsisyours was the first I'd encountered that really came up with some magical reasons for loss, too. Thank you so very much for writing this.

I realize this story is ages old, but I've recently returned to it after many years, and I wanted to finally write to tell you how much I love it. I'm one of those terrible anonymous readers who never reviews, but this is such a beautiful story. You're able to simultaneously mimic the characterization laid out by Rowling, believably age the characters, and weave your own story in this series of heartbreakingly honest moments that you don't even need to read it through the lens of Severus and Hermione for it to translate. It's masterfully impressive, and I truly hope to read one of your novels someday.
I'm not sure if you're even active on FFN anymore, but I hope this someone makes it's way to you, if for no other reason than to stroke your ego.

I just let out the sappiest mental sigh. This was the loveliest story and I quiet-cried through so much of it it’s actually embarrassing. You are truly one of the fandom greats.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! It was an excellent blend of drama, angst, and romance with the perfect dash of poetry mixed in! I thought the quotes about love at the beginning of each chapter was an exceptional touch. It added to the actual depth of development of their affection, love, and life together. I'm so happy I found this story! Thank you!
