I can't wait until you post another chapter - please make it fast, as you can't just leave your readers on such a cliff! :) Good story so far - I like the plural point of views.
Author's Response: aw, thanks. I just posted the final bit to this, so I hope you enjoy that one as well. :)

I'm really eager to read your next chapter! You write Harry and Hermione very well and I particularly liked the idea of Hermione knowingly toying with Harry's feelings in order to gain some validation for her feminine wiles. A woman's sexuality is a potent force, indeed, but there can be repercussions.
I admit, I have a soft spot for H/Hr, because they ARE the most realized characters in the Potterverse. I do find that the best fics surrounding their "discovery" of a mutual attraction are usually set in their post-Hogwarts days. While canon might not support the pairing as teenagers (although a strong case could be made for their devotion to each other in DH), it is easy to see how their views would change as they grow into adults and develop an even stronger relationship. I think the heart of the H/Hr pairing is that Harry always came off as more of an equal to Hermione than Ron ever did. It is concievable that as they began careers and got older, Hermione would lose a bit of her preachiness and didactic ways, while Harry would start to notice Hermione as a strong woman in her own right and not just his sidekick.
thanks so much! While I ship Hermione with quite a few other characters (and I have a serious soft spot for Harry/Luna), H/Hr are totally my OTP. I love writing them, and it makes me so happy to know that some people think I write them well - that's such a nice compliment! :)
Anyways, I couldn't agree with you more about what you wrote regarding their relationship potential -- it's definitely why I love them so much.
thanks again! :)

While not the biggest Hermione/Harry fan. This was very well done, I am looking forward to seeing how it works out. Keep it up
thanks for the nice comment. I just posted the second (of three) parts -- hopefully you'll enjoy the way it works out! :)
