Update!!!! Is this still being written or are you finished? I've read this in two days.... Sitting on pins and needles! Lol, really though, good luck with your writing!
Well done. Keep up the good work.
Well, it happened. Whoever they are mean business and if I were Hermione I would hurry up and get married right away because chances are she might have to wait longer if this attack means a bigger conflict in the horizon. Until the next update and thank you for sharing your story with us.
Happiness all around. Who knows, maybe having a baby isn't so bad for Ron and rather than a punishment might a blessing in disguise.
Some peace at last indeed. Bonded to an elf by an act of nature or rather by a very human condition :)
Hermione and Draco could teach a lot of couples how to resolve arguments. Well done!
Harry's rant was spot on. Everything I felt about his life and how he was treated by his blood family and his Hogwarts family. He was no more than a tool and to leave him alone and 'abandoned' for the first 11 years of his live was downright cruel. So what if a squib was assigned to look after him? What could she possibly have done other than what she did? Why wasn't Dumbledore aware of Harry's physical and emotional abuse? Did he even care?
Christmas is over, new year has started and my life is back to normal. I truly enjoyed the conversation Ginny had with Hermione. It was real, true to what a young woman in love and about to get married would feel. It is great that you have Hermione wishing for a period of normalcy with her family. Her reaction is totally in accordance with her character.
I never understood why rich people need dozens of rooms and just as many bathrooms. If we were talking about a huge family I'd understand. A couple and a pair of kids don't need hundreds of rooms. I just don't get it. And I am rambling, aren't I? What a horrible habit!
Draco is right. He and Hermione have as a strong a relationship as the most stable of relationships so why wait to get married?
The last part was very sweet. They are going on the right path. Sex is one tiny part in marriage, an important one but still small. There is boredom, routines, children, lack of time, tiredness, and so much more that could hinder any relationship. I'd say that having too much money and not having to work hard for it can be an obstacle, althoug I'd love to be as filthy rich as Draco and Hermione. Even I didn't like my spouse or fell out of love I could still travel and enjoy life.
Sigh of relief. Hopefully there won't be any lingering injuries after Hermione recuperates.
I applaud your great insight into what kind of traumas the kids and the adults involved in the war would have gone through after the dust settled. That you have Hermione going through panic attacks makes her more human. She and Harry suffered so much the last year of the conflict!
Also, very realistic the fact that some Death Eaters might have gone into hiding after the war. I even imagine attacks now and then against property and those who fought against Voldemort. Well done! Now I need to know how badly injure is Hermione.
Alcohol in excess will always make fools of all us. I guess they are making up for loss time. They had to grow rather quickly.
Joy all around. Nice chapter. Oh, but weddings are a source of great stress! What if Mary and Narcissa get out control? What if Hermione and Draco have conflicted feelings about the what, who, how and where of the wedding? Gossip columns in newspapers are going to have a field day.
Emily took the breakup with her boyfriend well but it does bring a good point. Money and influence, as Lucius very well knows and admits, are a double edge sword. Who are real friends? "Is she/he really interested in me or my money and last name?" Being rich and influential makes some people uncomfortable and they pull away. One of my very good friends is a millionaire. We don't see each other often. I have to work, she travels. I can have a cheap cup of coffee, she prefers a high end bakery and coffee shop. I made her pay for it lol. Sometimes she says and does things that only people with a lot of money say or do. A $200 pair of shoes are nothing to her, I can buy groceries for a week! Anyway, I am sure my rumblings are boring you, my apologies. I suffer from verbal diarrhea :).
Enjoying your fic.
What a romantic proposal! Loved it! Hermione is going to accept of course. And the cottage, perfect. I could picture it in my head.
A lovely summary of what happened during summer. Moving adoption ceremony. Harry deserves a family and one as loving as the Snapes. The new DADA professor is annoying, arrogant and with no manners.
I find some aspects of Snape's parenting rather silly and contradictory. Hermione is 19 years old, he has no issue with her being sexually active but 'punished' her and Harry with 'lines' because they snuck out of the Castle. The educator and parent in me can't reconcile how the Snapes treat their adult children like little kids sometimes and others like the adults that they are. On the other hand the love and support in the family is endearing. Emily is the smartest witch of her age, how cool is that!
Hermione did get away with a lot during her Hogwarts years, I am surprised she wasn't as in much trouble as Harry was.
I was a bit surprised whe Mary gave Hermione detention for sneaking out to have sex with Draco since apparently the students were supposed to read out loud the reasons for their detentions. Talking about embarrassing your daughter in front of everyone! What if someone took the parchment from either Draco or Hermione?
Poor Emily! I can't imagine what must feel like to have gone what she went through. Just like Harry's years with Petunia and family were horrendous and he still deals with what they did to him.
Oh my goodness! After the fun and shenanigans of the hen night and bachelor party, I did not expect that ending! Yikes!
Light chapter. Except for Snape's chat with Hermione. I felt pity most of the time for Snape as I read the books. I also thought he was a cruel and vindictive teacher. Hating an eleven year old orphan because of his last name? Yet, at the same time he protected Harry because of guilt and his love for Lily. Poor man was damaged beyond repair. I guess fandom gives him the life he might deserve.
I was wondering about how Mary and Severus would treat Hermione because of the side-along dissaparation. She is an adult, they approve of her sexual encounters with Draco so 'going early to bed' and 'being grounded' sounded rather silly. Hermione came up for a way to apologies, good for her.
Lovely wedding. Narcissi and Lucius are lucky indeed to have been forgiven.
Because of that abhorrent epilogue one could think of a million possibilities regarding the characters from the books. Would the Malfoy family had it so easy just a year after the war? In my opinion, they wouldn't. No if details of their involvement with Voldemort came to light. Chances are it all would have come out during the many trials.
Yours is another scenario. Maybe just a handful held on to their hatred and thirst for revenge.
The first of many weddings is coming. I love the ring by the way.
The beauty about reading a story half way done is that a cliffhanger like this is not bad at all since I get to know Draco's answer in the next chapter :)
Lucius and Snape have changed so much I'm kind of missing the old mean spirited Slytherins.
I can see that there is a lot story left. Would you go as far as the next four years as Draco and Hermione continue their studies? Is this the calm before the storm? Every couple goes through ups and downs in their relationship.
Narcissa turned a marriage of convenience into something worth fighting for, good for her! Of all the Malfoys I think she shown more courage than either Lucius or Draco. In your story she proved to me she has courage and can manipulate an unhappy situation around.
Another aspect of J K's wizarding world that I have always wondered about: life after Hogwarts. It appeared that the students didn't have that many choices. What you have come up with is really smart.
It's refreshing to read about Draco as a virgin. It was also very telling that both had read about sex and the mechanics of it and had the presence of mind to remember :) I do hope there aren't any surprises at the end of a very sex-filled afternoon. Contraceptive Charms may not last long, at least for me they don't.
I always wondered why Draco pretended not to recognize Harry. His explanation might be one of the answers.
There is no way those involved in the final battle (from either side) went back to their every day lives without some form of PTSD manifesting itself. Harry, Hermione, and Ron must have gone through some serious emotional trauma after the war. You did very well portraying Hermione's fears and anxiety about going back to Malfoy Manor.
Now we know where the Wesley get their sense of humour from. Love all around in this chapter.
Great idea having Mary as a guidance counsellor. I always wondered how exactly Muggle parents coped with the magical powers of their children. I mean, for all we know they might have thought those bouts of weirdness were a mental disorder. Who explained to Muggle parents what to expect? When to expect it?
Ron is gone and thank goodness! As expected, Mary and Snape are getting closer.
Lily isn't the mother I thought she should be. While I understand, not condone, her one night stand with Snape, those letters were on the cold side for me. I just can't warm up to her and agree with Harry's arguments.
Ron is so out of character is scary! That he is jealous, unsure of himself and a loud mouth was pretty obvious in the books but this Ron has none of the redeeming qualities he had in the books. What a sad end for him!
Ron is behind the article. Wow he is really damaged!
Cute first date. Hermione settled everyone's curiosity very nicely kissing Draco for all to see.
Ron is acting so vindictively is hard to read sometimes. Although Ron mentioned Snape and Hermione' mum getting together to hurt Hermione, I think he is not wrong in his assumptions for I too believe they are going to end up together. Mary is all ready living at Hogwarts and in very close proximity to Snape.
The Weasley family are dear to my heart and while I can't think of a good reason for Ron and Hermione to end up together it makes me cringe to read about such a bigotted and loathsome Ron. However, if one were to work with his shortcomings and make them ten times worse your Ron will be the result.
Little by little Mary Granger is more and more part of Snape's and Hermione's magical world. Now she has a house-elf at her service. Hmmm, my suspicions are stronger now.
I predict that Mary and Snape will become an item and that Harry and Emily will be a couple very soon. I mean, Emily has a scar just like Harry because she survived the Killing Curse which means Harry will have someone just like him and with the same qualities of his sister. By the way, did you mean to write Avada Kedrava, instead of Abracadabra?
Not to sound as if I'm justifying Ron's horrible behaviour but I did think that the death of Hermione's dad was rather convenient although I didn't think it was Snape who did it.
Thank you so much for your reviews, I sincerely hope you are enjoying the story.
In resopnse to your question I did mean to write Abracadabra, I figured that in that situation - a young girl with no knowledge of the magical world who had just had two men burst through the door, she would have know Abracadabra as a phrase and just assumed that was what was said. The wizards would have said Avada Kedavra, she just heard it the other way.
Ron is given short shrift in this story, a bot over the top at times but the story was written from a challenge and one of the requirements was Ron not being a nice person. Not to give anything away but he is eventually written out.
It is a very long story, I really need to update it on this site... I hope you continue to read and any other questions just let me know.
Have a great day :)
Sooner or later Hermione has to break down. One minute she is the daughter of Mary Granger the next she is none other than Lily Potter's daughter and Snape is her father. And now her adoptive father is dead. There's no way she can be this cool and collected about the whole thing.
Ron put his foot in his big mouth. That is part and parcel of who he is. He might change his tune when he cools down. I understand what you explained about Lily's letters but I still think she could have shown a little more warmth toward her two children.
Well, the truth is known albeit rather quickly. Reactions were not what I expected. Everyone was so calm about it. I'm not sure what to feel about a totally altered (physically) Hermione. It just that everything is happening so fast!
Twisted set of events. Hermione and Harry are siblings. Never read a fic with this premise. Maybe because I'd rather have them as a couple and Hermione Muggle born. Found the first part of the chapter too rushed and James's behaviour odd. No matter, this might turn into a very interesting fic.
Oh I love reading updates on this. I can't wait for more!
Thank you for your long involved and enjoyable chapters. What a lovely way of showing their progression.
Fantastic chapter, I really enjoyed it.
A delicate subject handled responsibly, well done. Thank you.
Good chapter! Very devious to 'subconciously' bond an elf to her.
I was crying, what a chapter and so happy that Hermione woke up. A + ......
Whew, drama unfolds in full force. One thing is certain, for the lives of these, life will never be dull for long.
Never a dull moment. Thank you.
What a blast, a truly fun and entertaining chapter, thank you!
I wasn't going to review until I'd caught up, but I just had to mention Celestial Dollars, that's a beautiful piece of thinking. Loving the story by the way, although I'm still having a little trouble getting my head around Hermione being Severus' daughter. You make it very believable, it's just me.
I forsee unknown complcations concerning the old injury perhaps? Always eagerly awaiting the next chapter!
Oh how very very fun this chapter was. Thank you.
So sweet~ I can't wait for the rest of it!
Squeals indeed. What a wonderfully proper and meaningful proposal. Thank you for the new chapter and the evidence of your talent and hard work.
ooooo what a clif hanger! love it.
Draco travelling to Dr. Granger's grave and taking the time to speak so freely about his feelings was very touching. *sniff* A beautiful chapter, full of love.
There always has to be one professor who is 'out of sorts', that poor DADA position, cursed in so many ways. Thank you for sharing your inspiration and story.
Wonderful addition! Always looking forwards to more!
I like this version much better. re-reading it, I'm still struck by the fact that you have catured something very different here.
Adorable, I can't wait to read more!
Amazing as always. Emily is fierce. I see great things in her future. I am hoping you will do a stand alone story about Emily. It would be so interesting. Loved this. Thank you.
A nice wrap up to the school year. Thank you for the chapter and for sharing the story for enjoyment.
As every chapter has been, lovely!
Thank yo so much for sharing it and for you updates as well.
That was great. Loved the talk bnetween Severus and Hermione. The idea that Hermione has been Harry's protection all along was great. I love twists. The best part of all was the detentions. Excellent.
Sometimes I think it's better if you leave a story for several updates before catching up - more reading time then haha. I'm glad you liked it, the next chapter is with the Beta, so more to come soon :)
loved the bit with the door.. i've got 3 kids and know that only too well
oh Ron what have you done????
aahhh i keep forgetting to review, i get so caught up in the tale....i am loving this
I have to stop laughing. Oh that last line is precious!
What a wonderful and full chapter. Thank you, I felt as if I was walking along with them every step through the chapter. Thank you for sharing your obvious talent with us and allowing the transport to the world you created using JK's sandbox as your jumping off place. Very enjoyable!
What a wonderful chapter. Thank you for the addition.
Thought I would pop in over here for a bit. I laughed so hard at Narcissa Malfoy telling Severus to let Mary up. I love this story.
Another beautiful chapter. Thank you.
Wow, what a wonderful lengthy chapter.
(the asteric after castle, there at the end confused me. Was there a footnote, or is it an extra?)
I do like this story very much and was excited to see an update. Thank you!
Thanks for your review, I am really glad you are still liking it. Thanks for letting me know abou the asterisk, it just goes to show no matter how many times you read something and get it back from the Beta, there can still be things wrong. That was a typo of some sort, no note or anything to speak of and I have taken it out now :)
The next update should be along soon, the chapter is going to the Beta today...
Wonderful story continuation. Thank you!
Thank you for your review, I am really glad you are still liking it :)
You certainly covered a lot of ground in this chapter, that is not a critizim by the way, just a statement. A very nice dealing with persons who steal your ideas ,and then to top it off, a beautifuly written consumation. Well done and thank you for sharing this story and your talent for writing.
Thanks for your review - all the chapters become fairly long from now on. I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter and hope you continue to do so. Have a great day :)
Oh to be caught "red" handed, or in this case green haired. How very cute and original. Thank you for the update, and for sharing yourself through your writting.
Well that was a lot happening! Thank you, it is a very enjoyable story.
Oh dear, the brothers too. Thank you for such a story, it is a joy to read it.
It may have been a wait, but it was worth it, For the revelations this one held. Thank you, this is a beautiful story so far, and I believe it will continue to be. Thank you for sharing it.
fantastic.. as it is now 3.30 in the morning, I literally couldn't stop reading... but more please......
Thanks for all your reviews. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who stays up all night reading. I am glad you enjoyed it so far, there is plenty more to come...
i'm really beginning to hate lily.....you write her beautifully
wow, they were grown up.. loved it
Wow - what a great eleven things to wake up to on a Monday morning! Thank you so much for all your wonderful reviews. Unfortunately I have to answer it is all coming togther and it is the clam before the storm. Not really helpful I know. Chapter 12 is with the Beta now so should hopefully be up soon.
This story was in answer to a challenge on ff.net. It required Hermione's looks to change, but I don't reference them that often, a little bit but I believe it is more important to note she has not changed on the inside. I am glad you like Mary, I am enjoying writing her, she is a strong character.
I am really glad you are enjoying this and hope you continue to do so.
Good chapter of resolutions.
Thank you for the quick update.
Thank you for sharing your inspiration.
Thank you for your review :)
I am glad you are still enjoying it and hope you continue to do so.
I do like your story very much, but I have few BUts...... I always thought Hgw world and wizarding comunity dont allow muggle to live among them .Even Hermiony is speacial its kind of hard to imagine Mary is permanently living there and Winky does all magic for her need.
And its sounds too much as sweat happyending..... H and D and Severus and Mary to do that full family finaly including Button.
Actually I appreciate this wonderfully long chapter to see Ron's point of view. Great idea to move him to Romania, where he can prove whats inside of him. I got your point, he was more in love with dream of Hermiony and in reality he doesnt know her at all, with all the nagging and bickering. waiting for your update
Thanks for your review. I really like it when readers offer their opinions and the chance for me to explain my motivations.
In regards to Mary living at Hogwarts, I am guessing the capability is there as Filch lives there with no magic, him being a squib. I also think with the number of magical people that marry Muggles, there must be a way for them to live straddling the two worlds. I look to Seamus Finnegan as an example here, he has a Muggle father but was clearly raised with magic. As long as Winky is around to cater for any deficiencies within the castle to compensate for Mary's lack of magic, then she should be able to live there quite comfortably once she was 'keyed to the wards' so to speak.
Above all, this story is about the formation of a family and their trials and tribulations as they do so. My skillset is such that writing sweet and happy works best for me, there is quite a bit of it to come with some drama and lots of humour thrown in as well. I hope you continue to enjoy and review, as I said, I love explaining my motivations and what some of the backstory might be.
