youre amazingggg. never in my life did i think i would ship marcus and hermione but alas you made it work haha. perfect ending btw
I just love this story! It's seriously brilliant! Love Marcus at the moment and it's all your fault!! Thank you!
I always have a soft spot for him for some reason!
A different take on the Marriage law. Not sure if I've read one where one of the participants switched the letters before. Love your chapter names, btw. They're sctually what caught my eye. :-)
I'm a sucker for fluff and romance, thank you! Draco is really smitten, how nice!
Good thing this fic is finished because cliffhangers are not my cup of tea.
Like House says, 'Everybody lies'. No more true than in this fic. Hermione Granger has a lot of pride. That is obvious in the books. She can't conceive not being right or first.
Now what? Marcus and Hermione are going straight to the Minister's office?
I wish I had any idea as to what Hermione is hiding but, I don't. Did she know from the start that her formula was flawed?
Anna isn't that much different from Hermione. Just as feisty and smart. Might be the reason why Draco is attracted to her and like her so much.
How sad for Marcus!
Lies and more lies and this time from Hermione.
Marcus did the righ thing. Finally! How are they going to right this wrong? Keep on reading is the answer.
As for Hermione's abuser. Perfect punishment. Wish we could have it in real life.
Avoidance is not healthy and most of the time hurts more than expected. No idea if Hermione is going to react badly. If she really loves him, it might hurt her to learn the truth, that is, if Marcus manages to do it.
You're extremely generous! Sharing even just a tiny bit of your experiences is a gift. Sorry you went through whatever you went through no matter how mild. I'm enraged and I don't even know what happened to you or Hermione.
Marcus might give me some satisfaction.
Anna is my favourite character so far.
Where is Harry by the way? Hermione is not longer close to Harry or the Weasley family? Her friendship with Harry is one of the greatest things in the books and I kind of miss it.
I think I just forgot about Harry in this story. I had too many characters to juggle... and I sort of wrote Anna as a 'Mary Jane' as they call them, because I based on slightly on me. I figured if Draco couldn't get the girl, he could get the next best thing... someone based slightly on me. HAAAAHAAAA!!!
Eavesdropping, bending the truth, not telling the truth, doing things behind people's backs. Goodness, these bunch of people can't be trusted at all. Not one of them!
I like Anna. Draco is already getting on my nerves.
Marcus shouldn't blame himself. Thinking on your feet is something you're born with and difficult to master.
In the books we don't get to know what went on with the Slytherins other than Crabbe and Goyle shadowing Draco all the time. A shame really.
Truth in this fic is going to be the most important casualty. Hermione may be the second once she learns that her formula didn't work. That is if Draco and Adrian are telling the truth about the formula not working. In most of your fics your characters struggle with being truthful.
Is Marcus going to tell Draco and Adrian the truth or half the truth?
I don't how to explain this feeling I have about Hermione and Marcus. The word that comes to mind is contrived and not because Marcus changed the names in the envelopes but, because Hermione acts as if she had (has) no will of her own. She might have never been in love with Ron, okay but to develop such a strong reaction -very close to being in love- toward Marcus in the spand of hours? It feels fake to me as if she isn't the Hermione I've known. Can't warm up to Marcus and I'm more interested with the formula and whether or not Hermione is going to come out of the coma she is and get the ball rolling.
Just for argument's sake I'd like to know who they were all paired with originally. Would I ever find out? Hiking in Winter, depends. Malfoy Manor, why that place of all places?
She has fallen in love fastest than the speed of light. I'm still waiting for Draco to get this show on the road. Dig for dirt, steal the potion, whatever is needed to convince Hermione that she's been used and lied to. Sadly, I can't count on Hermione to help.
I loved draco in this story. This was the story that inspired 'The list' and 'The Vipers' for me.
The key to solve this mess is in the formula and in doing another test. Draco is the guy who likes doing illegal stuff so why isn't he?
Ron and Hermione were never in love I guess. One day they are living together, engaged and the next a piece of paper says they no longer are a couple and voilá they 'fall in love' with whoever the Ministry picked (not in Hermione's case of course) for them. How does this make sense?
Why isn't Hermione fighting this law? She'd do it as a matter of principle, forget her sudden attraction for Marcus. I haven't given up hope yet.
yeah, that's true, but this was written for a Marriage Law challenge, and we were given the edict which each story had to contain. I'm with you. It would really make no sense at all. I usually didn't even like to READ marriage law stories, let alone write them. When I wrote this for the challenge, most people wrote one shots, and mine took on a life of its own and went on forever, but in the end, I was happy with it.
Hermione just accepted it :(
Sorry Marcus, someone thought of doing the same. Hermione is going to combust and do it loudly when she learns what they've done with her potion.
I guess Marcus will attempt to change the results too. Wow, Hermione has all these men falling at her feet!
Blind tests. Were they truly blind? Did Adrian find out who is he paired with?
What if...okay, I'm going to speculate and propably fail like a fool. What if Adrian, like Draco, is in love with Hermione and having confirmed that Hermione was paired with someone else he switched the results?
First lie: Adrian doing something with Hermione's results to have her as his chosen bride. I'm sure there'll be like a dozen or more lies throughout the story. Second lie: keeping Hermione in the dark about the purpose of her formula. Third lie: Draco switching the results. This is going to be a really complicated story. Crap! I forgot about poor Ron.
Marriage Law fics aren't my cup of tea. Usually, Draco forces Hermione to marry him, that in itself is bad enough, Hermione not fighting back, accepting her fate without kicking and screaming? Bothers me more than words can express.
But, you're the author here and even though Draco has already messed up the outcome of who the formula picked for him, I know it won't be as simple as he thinks. Hermione is going to refuse her fate, the manipulations of the ministry and of course, the fact that she is paired with Draco. This is my hope., that there'll be substance to this tired premise.
Speculating already? That's my girl!!
hehe yay it was a great endding ty for the wonderful story.
Thank you very much for reading and reviewing! It makes me happy that you enjoyed it!
hehe yay it was a great endding ty for the wonderful story.
oh no what now.
i never thought she was that stupied.
well i think i have taken that all in, next chapter.
aww thats sad to see his mum dont even remember him.
i dont know if i could take any more confessions. XD
yup i like this chapter.......
oops he was suppose to tell her first.
yes i agree, i have had horrorible things happen to me. so i understand.
i love that song the sound of silence.
well look at that anna's a little spitfire, good she'll need it
HA I WAS RIGHT i thought draco switched first so he knew someone switch it, so its sort of right.
Don't you love it when you make a guess in a story and you're right?
well that was exciting.
oh boy now im really confused
ok maybe its just me but i think draco knows hmmm, think slytherin. i got an idea but i want to see if im right.
yup especially flint is right XD
just when things seem to be working out.
awww they r so sweet.
awww they r so sweet.
oh wow i thought it was never mind that was good now im up too speed i hope.
Ok i see it now this will be a mad house.
wow that was a nice move i have no idea who tampered with the letters. argh.
so much mistory, wonder who the man is, who his real match is, and who hermiones real match is?
I followed you from fanfiction and after reading this awesome story I'm glad I did. Thank you for entertaining me so thoroughly. I enjoyed everything about the story, keep up the good work.
Thank you! This was the story that made me want to write 'The List'!
for crying out loud. tell her Marcus so we can get back and find out what Draco is up to.
From one thing to another.
Still reading because I don't see Hermione being happy with that pig Flint. But she is settling and that makes me angry. Hermione Granger is meant for Draco Malfoy.
And you know I'm a dramione girl, so it was hard to write this story, but the perimeters of the stories said I had to put her with someone other than Draco, so when I started writing, I think it was hard for me to not make them be together. Also, I so wanted Draco to have a happy ending in this...so just keep reading. That's all I tell you without giving too much away.
still trying to figure this out
So. I guess it wasn't Draco in the file room switching letters. Since there is really no way on this site to tell who the leading characters are unless they are mentioned in the story description I am now wondering if this is a Dramione. Doesn't seem like it. No offense but the last person I can see with Hermione is Marcus Flint. I know. Tough, Right?
Great story. I like the way you have encompassed the Slytherins into things. Slimy but attractive. They are my kind of men. LOL.
This was my 'pre' List story...ha!
Nice start. Definitely makes me want to read more. I'm guessing that the speaker is Draco. But we shall see.
