Wow--that was really sad. I do like Draco/Hermione stories though. This is almost as bad as the Severus pining after Lily for his entire life.

This little story has a refreshingly imaginative thesis. What I like: the "marriage bonds" which turn out to be a sort of telepathic notification of romantic/emotional feelings in one's spouse; the long time span; Hermione's constant eluding of her erstwhile husband (at first we don't know who or why); the notion that a Voldemort victory ultimately didn't make much difference to the Muggle world.

Even though we have an AU where Voldemort wins and Hermione is Imperiused to marry Draco, her character remains the character we knew in the 7 books, and when she is released from magical mind control, she is old Hermione, opposed to Voldemort and the Death Eaters, and she flees. There is no need to cudgel our brains trying to figure out why Hermione is behaving so sympathetically toward the Dark Side; she never does.

We get the feeling, even before Hermione realizes that Draco is about to die, that she has achieved a peace and tranquility in her life. The whole piece has a gentleness to it. And when she does see him for one last time, on his deathbed, there is no expressed anger, but no forgiveness either. For Hermione his death means neither triumph nor tragedy, just a final freedom.

This piece is very well-written, and the style is pleasingly different. So much is packed into just a few pages.

I really loved this! Beautiful, yet so sad. Malfoy and Hermione go so well together, please write more like this!

That was really well written and a powerful chapter. I'm guessing it's a one-shot (though it doesn't say 'complete'). The ending was so sad and poignant - I loved it. You conveyed Hermione's feelings towards him really well and his pleas for forgiveness and apologies were so sad. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you for the review, I'm glad you liked this! This is a one shot, thanks for pointing out my mistake, I'll just be fixing that soon. I personally love Hermione and Draco together, but find it difficult to believe that their relationship would work without a major AU event. Thanks again for the review!
