Ugh. These feelings. This is why i'm in this ship. Oh god. My heart. You incredible person, you. Damn it this is a great story and you deserve all the good reviews in the world.
Author's Response: That's why I'm in this ship, too. So much potential for delicious heartache and resolution. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you enjoyed this!!
Amazing first chapter! Character development, background info, a delicious romp, and a captivating plot! Looooove it!
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Author's Response: Um... Thank you?
A really good story!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it!
Yay! A great ending for a really good story! I truly enjoy your writing!
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Bravo!!!!! I swear, you keep me at the edge of my chair with every single story!! I loved the believability of this story. All of the medical stuff was easy to understand and yet complex and genuine. I'm so glad that you didn't kill Draco and I loved the way that you wrote both characters. Thanks for another masterpiece!!!
Author's Response: Excellent! I'm especially happy to hear that all the science and medical stuff came across. I wanted to make it technically correct but not overwhelming to anyone who hasn't had that sort of in-depth education or training. Thank you so much for reading!!
Good story bit I am afraid I found a lot of the logic impronable.
Author's Response: I appreciate you sticking with it despite your misgivings. Thank you!
This is...lovely. Really lovely.
I think the Theresa part is the weakest link. I can't see Hermione settling for nothing more than sex with Draco if she thought Draco had an interest in someone else, and his constantly trying to get more out of her denies it. Besides, Theresa is just not a purebred name - Gypsophelia, maybe, or Melodia, or Cassiopeia - but Theresa? Somehow, just not magical enough. That's clearly my own little prejudice, but I will admit to it...;-)
But really, that is a small quibble compared to the rest of the story, and re-writing this five times was worth it - I think you got it exactly right... (I love the part where he tells her it's up to the Malfoy legal team to figure out where her notebook came from...)
Author's Response: Lol, I really didn't even think about the name. But then, I never considered Theresa a pure-blood, either. In my head, she was a half-blood. :shrugs: I get what you mean about it being a weak link, though. I probably should've added more of her throughout the story, given her a fleshier character, and really made Draco's change of behavior near her obvious, as well as shown Hermione's reaction to it. Ah well, maybe on a re-write someday, I guess. Good spot, though, and thank you for that! As far as Hermione settling for sex, I'm not going to say she was desperate because I honestly don't think she'd gotten that far, but I do think that she had it firmly in her mind that she and Draco weren't going to be anything more than 'bedroom buddies'. She could've construed his asking her out as mocking or a way to have both Theresa and her at the same time. Not very flattering. However, since Hermione doesn't like Theresa, I don't think she'd have too much of a problem with getting what she wants from Draco. He's a grown man, after all, and if sex with two women is something he wants, then that's his choice. And since a serious relationship between them would be nonexistent, and she knows it, then it doesn't really hurt her, either. Does that make sense? Anyway, I'm glad you thought the wait was worth it! I wanted to get it exactly right, and the previous drafts had no where near the emotional punch they needed to. Thank you so much for you patience and for leaving such a great review!!
Bravo!!!! Excellantly played out; you captured Draco and Hermione well. Love the ending and how you did not gloss over the emotional details. Fleshed out and full of the conflict associated with grief/surprise/resolution. Good job
Author's Response: Thank you! Endings are always tough: you have to wrap up everything that the story's been leading to, and there's a fine line between too much and not enough. It's satisfying to hear that I got it right. :)
Author's Response: :D
Whew! That was a heavy chapter! I had to go back and check the status of the story to make sure that this isn't the end. So much pain and heartbreak in this chapter! I loved the way that you wrote Draco and his feelings and reactions. Wonderful job and I can't wait to read the next chapter, which, I'm sure, will not include Draco's death. Because it can't. ;)
Author's Response: Nope, not done yet! There's one more chapter to wrap things up. Obviously can't give any hints as to what it does/does not include, but I'm hoping it goes over well. Thank you for reading!
I have to tell you that after I read chapter four, I had to turn off my computer. That is, the story did that to me. You should be extremely proud of yourself.
Author's Response: Oooh, I am!! What a reaction! Thank you so much for reading!!
Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?
Author's Response: I'm tweaking the final chapter now, so you'll find out soon! Thank you for reading!!
grey's anatomy meets the hp universe. I love it! Post again soon, you're doing great!
Author's Response: Thank you! Now that the holidays are over, I'll have more time to post. I'm glad you're enjoying this!!
First off, let me just say that I was beyond ecstatic when I saw you had a new story and extremely bummed that it was posted during the busiest two weeks of my life! (Ok, well, maybe just this semester, but whatever. :)) I was able to make time to read it yesterday and I am so glad that I did. Poor Draco!!!! I'm already hurting for him and we're only 3 chapters in! I'm already loving this fic and can't wait to read what's next!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Author's Response: Ah, finals week, right? I guess I do have rotten timing, haha. But I hope your semester ended well, anyway, and hopefully taking the time to read didn't impact you too much! :D I'm so glad you're enjoying the story so far. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!!
You're BACK! :D
Author's Response: I am!! :D ::hugs::
I am not quite sure what to say about this story. It seems a bit unreal and the characters are out of context (and is very grim at the moment). But it is as contagious as any virus.
Author's Response: I think I understand why this is a little unsettling. I myself haven't read too many Healer/Patient stories and, as such, didn't really know how fans before me had structured St Mungo's or the Healing system. I also merged quite a bit of 'Muggle' medicine into the magical Healing, so I'm sure that's a little off-putting, too. Thank you for sticking with me, though. I really appreciate it!
