I figured this was the easiest way to get this message out to 'Summer of the Dragon' fans. I know I swore I wasn't going to do this, but after I decided to change the ending (yes, I'm confessing, the original plan was for them notto end up together) there was less closure than I originally anticipated. Shortly after I finished writing it a new idea entered my head that I couldn't shake loose. While I am all for open-ended conclusions I feel Draco and Hermione still had a lot to go through before they could finally live happily ever after.

So that is why I ran with my idea. I just wanted to play around with it at first, but have finally decided to go ahead and post it.

Even though it is technically a sequel to this story I plan on trying to make it a standalone since the genres are very different. This will not be an adventure story and promises to be much darker than 'Summer of the Dragon'. I believe with every great love there is great sacrifice and Draco and Hermione are going to find this out big time.

That being said, please go to my page and start reading my new story, 'Fighting for the Malfoys'. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
