Good job! I could just see Hermione telling her parents what was going on in her world, and her mom sitting there sobbing. =(

Chapter: A Chance

I think you're probably one of the only people that I know that can pull off a monologue and pull it off well. The things that make Hermione such a strong person shine through – her passion, her loyalty, her strength, her commitment to justice. Even the fact that she's sitting down with her parents to explain this to her shows her love for them and her realization that it wouldn't be right to leave them without saying good-bye and trying to explain.

Her voice was surprisingly in-character, too. Sometimes it sounded a little too formal, but overall the vocabulary and eloquence seemed right for her, and the more conversational, fragile tone of the end nearly made me cry because she sounds so human and afraid, but brave. I think the situation merits it, you know? The one phrase that threw me off was “going down swinging.” I knew what you meant, but it sounded really odd coming our of Hermione's mouth. “Going down fighting” might suit her more. But otherwise, brilliant, brilliant writing. I also really liked the faerie tale analogy at the beginning, and how that transitioned into Hermione telling her parents Harry's story.

What your saying through this – that you have to do what's right even when people you love try to prevent you out of good intentions – really resonates, and makes it so much more than the average fanfic, as all of your fictions are. He wants to destroy us, mum and dad. What I represent. Equality between all, the freedom to learn and to choose. He hates what I am, what Harry is, what Ron is. Life. I love how it puts Voldemort on the same level as Hitler and Stalin and all the tyrants that have ever tried to take away people's humanity. We all know that he is, but I don't think people often stop to really think about what that means to the Wizarding world, that there's something large at stake that people have fought for throughout the ages. The same monster that never dies, and needs heroes to slay it for the rest of the world.

So thank you for yet another thought-provoking, wonderful fanfic.

Hermione is a favorite of mine. She has many qualities that I cherish; intellect, bravery, stubbornness (haha), and many more I won't name right now. Reading this, all of that seems to come out, and it's a wonderful thing. I have two words to finish my sermon: nice work!

I'm not usually a big fan of monologues, but you really enjoyed this one. I think you captured Hermione's character very well, especially in the way that it seems as though she has planned this speech out very well. Good Job!

Wow. . . that was good. You really got down how Hermione might have to tell her parents about this. That was pretty touching actually. Good job.
