Review #1, by Alicia 33.

4th December 2016:
I absolutely loved it! Was kinda confused in the beginning of this story bc wasnt sure if you were changing that they went to the World Cup Quidditch game in 6th year or a different one but i dont care! It was all fantastic. Loved the changes. If only J.K. Rowling would have ended it like that! Hope there are more Dramione stories i can read from you. :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for reviewing. Yes, I changed the timeline of my story. I noted it in the main overview but I think I'll put a message in at the beginning of the story just for clarification purposes. I loved certain aspects of various books so I rearranged certain things to suit me. Really this story is all about character development and the romance instead of adhering to strict timelines.

28th November 2016:
So I love the story and plot changes but your timeline is all messed up. The Quiditch World Cup as well as the Triwizard tournament happened in the goblet of fire, Harry's 4th year. So that means not only should Hermione be 14 and turning 15 in late September not 16 at the start of your story but she wouldn't even know Victor yet so she couldn't have seen him at the Quidditch World Cup before school started that year. She met him thru the Triwizard Tournament. (And you didn't even talk about the raid by death eaters at the Quidditch World Cup .)

Author's Response: Yes yes, that was intentional. I am adding things from the 4th and 5th books simply because I loved various aspects of them even though this story is technically set in their 6th year. Creative freedoms :)

Draco didn't make the Quidditch team until 2nd year. Harry was the only student to make it in their first year.

Enjoying the story tho. Very good.

Author's Response: Good call! I'll update. Sometimes little details like that are hard to keep track of. I haven't read the books in so many years!

Im enjoying so far. But in my opinion, this chapeter was like something you could read right out of the original HP book. I
More interested in your words. The CH where she killed! Awesome. Well time to read on

Author's Response: Thank you! Am trying to write my own words (ha) by working on my book. I appreciate the review and hope to let you know when I'm done with my novel.

This is the third or fourth time.. maybe even the fifth (I've lost count lol) that I've read this story. I love it! It is so well written and so funny and it doesn't rush into Dramionie like some stories do. Plus the Elemental part is so unique. Really awesome job!

Author's Response: Ha, thank you! I appreciate that so much. :D

Are you writing a sequal?

Author's Response: Hi! I'm currently working on my own novel (and it's going WAY slower than I intended) so I don't have a fanfiction sequel in the works now. I would love to write another fanfic someday with Blaise as a good guy instead of the antagonist, but it's on hold while I work on my own story. Thanks for reading though!!

Review #13, by Jade 33.

23rd October 2015:
The plot was moving rather slowly in the beginning but hey it got better by the chapter! I loved it so much! How you make hermione & draco developed their affection gradually instead of typical love-at-first sight kinda thing, the houses getting along, it was all very brilliant. At one point of the war i even got chills going down my spine! A fantastic story indeed.

Author's Response: Thank you!! I really wanted a slow burn bc it's more realistic, especially for two characters as different as Malfoy and Hermione. Thanks for reviewing!

And here we have it, the start of something very special...

Blaise was well written.

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! You're very thorough ;) As far as some of the spellings go, I'm in America so there will be a few discrepancies. When I have time I'll try to go back through and update according to your suggestions as I see fit. This is just a fanfiction, not my actual book (which I'm in the midst of working on) so of course attention to detail isn't always there. Thank you again!

30th September 2015:
Ooh, Hermione is so feisty in this chapter, I love it!

Why would you ask such a.(Draco knew Lucius was holding himself back from saying 'ridiculous') question?"
The phrasing of this is a little it odd, it didn't flow well.

Just keep an eye out for capital letters again.

I absolutely adored the sections focusing on the Malfoys. They were spot on in my opinion!


Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing!

30th September 2015:
Chapter 3

Try to capitalise thing like Floo where-ever possible.

You have accidentally typed fore instead of for at the end of one of your paragraphs.

This chapter was quite good for character development regarding Hermione.

One of my favourite parts was the boys discussing the new Firebolt. I also really liked how you set up the thing with the Patronus-in-a-stone.

I can't wait to review the next chapter!


Author's Response: Great, thank you for catching those!

29th September 2015:
Ah, excellent. I see Krum is back for more!

I like how you put the focus on Draco's reactions as well as the Malfoy family dynamic. That was very intersting and pleasant to see.

Another note on the double l's (perhaps this is an Australian spelling, I'm not sure!) but barrelled should have the double l rather than being barreled.

In the section where Mulciber's curse is cut off, you have written "Cruc.." Personally I would have put another dot before closing the quotation, or alternatively you could use a hyphen.

The phrase '"If it was discovered that we are becoming so bold as to kill in the midst of the Quidditch World Cup, it could jeopardize the mission. ' should have as bold as rather than so bold as. This is just a small grammatical thing.

Having read the whole story, I can easily say that this is one of my favourite chapters. The whole story hinges off the events in this chapter.


Author's Response: Thanks! I will add another period in the ellipses. However, "becoming so bold as to kill" is exactly how I wanted it worded. It may seem a little old-fashioned, but I promise you it's grammatically correct. At least where I am. Thank you again for your thorough reviews!

Review #20, by Slytherin Eagle 1.

29th September 2015:
Okay, so I've read this story quite few times, but never actually reviewed, so I thought that I might finally do it for you. So from here on in, you can expect a review from me on every chapter!

All of your descriptions are really good, and this chapter as a whole really hooks the reader in.

A little thing to note: rivaled has a double l (rivalled). Also, make sure you keep you spelling of Weasleby the same, as you have both Weaselby and Weaselbee. It doesn't matter how you spell it, just make sure that it is the same!

I liked Krum at the end, his characterisation was very good.

Best Wishes and onwards to the next chapter,

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! In America "rivaled" is the appropriate spelling (I believe in most English-speaking countries it can be spelled both ways) but I will definitely make the spelling of "Weaselby" the same.

14th August 2015:
Wow, when you said slow burning you really meant slow burning. The story jumped around a bit and was a little slow for my liking but those are the only criticisms I can find. Everything else was great. All in all a nice read.

Author's Response: Ha, yeah :) I really hate the whole "they saw each other and suddenly fell in love" stuff. Just not realistic, especially for two characters as different as Hermione and Draco.

Review #24, by Paige 7.

3rd August 2015:
This is too great. Your writing is immaculate! I've been caught up since chapter one, and it only gets better. I love the mixed emotion between the two. The ending to this chapter really got me; I love it. The tension in the air rivaled the spark when the ended up lying together, and to beat it all Hermione's mental joke about Draco having a heartbeat... I'm dead! Looking forward to reading on!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I was thinking of revising it because even after this long I'm still not sure it's as strong as it could be, but I feel reassured when I receive positive reviews :) I'm very glad you're enjoying the story overall! I hope you like the end as much as the beginning.
