Sanguini is right. All this talk about protecting Hermione and in the end they all, Harry included, are more concerned about playing a cat and mouse game amongst themselves than get on with their mission. I insist: secrets and conspiracies aren't good for Hermione.
I have so many ideas in my head but hesitate to speculate. It did occurred to me that Draco hasn't fallen in love again. He is in love with Hermione whether she is from the past or the present. Is the same woman. I sort of wished Draco controlled himself but heck human nature is primitive first and logical second.
Like I mentioned before. Everybody has an agenda which they aren't sharing with the rest. If I were Hermione I'd tell them all to f^*#@ off, take my daughter and protect myself. I'm too confused to bother trying to follow this mess. I'll just read.
The Vanishing Cabinet, great plot. I do have a question. Is the Vanishing Cabinet a time machine too? I'm thinking that using the Cabinet in the present would take you to Hogwarts in the present not to the past, unless I'm missing something. If the cabinet can take you back and forth in time, there is no reason why Draco can't go a visit Hermione in the present, is there? Either way,Draco should feel bad about fixing it ahead of time.
I'm feeling Hermione's despair. Pregnant, without her husband, her life in danger and no idea what kind of threat Ellen is. As for Draco in the past, he isn't going through the hell Hermione in the present is.
I'm lost and confused. Blaise isn't Blaise or did I misunderstand? Big surprise finding out that 'Blaise' came from the future too. If Hermione doesn't remember the woman at the party then, that must have been Ellen.

You know, it will be helpful if everyone involve in this mess would have met and come up with a plan because the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, hence, Hermione can't be protected properly.
Hydra Terran? Gosh that's an awful name. There are times when tradition should be ignored. Paul and Ellen working together, hmmm... makes sense, although the obvious may not be the answer. I'm thinking of an angry girlfriend as another possibility.
Draco and Don (in the present) must be skin and bones by now. They are sleeping but not eating or getting rid of toxins. What if Nick's girlfriend and/or her father are involved in Ellen's plans. Can't help but speculate.
Couldn't stop myself and had to read one chapter before going to work. Two words came to mind as I read it: perspective and hindsight. Draco is going through both of them. I honestly think Ellen is either a Slytherin or Gryffidor student. Draco is messing things up, he really is. He is going to be found out if he keeps getting closer and closer to Hermione. And now off I run to take the bus.
It took me a long while to accept that Draco had taken the Dark Mark. Harry sounded paranoid and vindictive and yet it was true. Can't imagine what a 16 year old Draco would have felt as he faced Voldemort and then being branded for life. J K's wizarding world is rather barbaric in its treatment of children.
Draco is going to get himself and young Hermione in trouble and expose their plans to Ellen. She could be following Hermione very closely, therefore listening to conversations like the one Draco had with Hermione in the luggage car.
Ellen using Polyjuice potion is the one thing that worries me the most. The second, Draco not being able to keep the façade. He almost slipped when he called her Hermione or warned her about being by herself. Hermione isn't going to dismiss either action.
Only a few names of constellations and stars are nice enough for me. Scorpious? Awful name.
Ellen's escape isn't going to be a secret for long. First thing she'll do is go back to Brotherhood of the Raven. Would the Ministry find out? If there's a mole within the government probably yes. Can't help 'thinking outloud' and writing about it.
As for Draco having to go through sixth year...Back to being a horrible, misguided, petulant, bigotted and a coward. Would he be able to take the pressure?

I've the two previous stories of the series and it has taken me a long time to come to back to its conclusion. So on I go ready to rant, rave and enjoy myself. I had a hunch Ellen wasn't done yet.
