I know that this has been posted for a really long time but I just have to say, thank you so much to including the alan rickman/sense and sensibility reference. I worship alan rickman, and I loved you including the part about his voice. also, awesome job on the series. I've been reading it for the past week now and I LOVE it
Author's Response: LOL about Alan Rickman. I'm not attracted to him myself, but he does have a great voice. And that's wonderful that you enjoyed the series so much. (I'm replying 2 1/2 years late because of past site bugginess.)

Hi, dear! Hum, you made a mistake in Hermiones OWLs. She truly had eleven, but the 11th one was Muggle Studies, and not Divination. Even though she wasn't taking that class anymore, she was able to do the exam.
Author's Response: I don't know if you'll see this, but that's interesting. Why did she take the Muggle Studies OWL? And where did you find that out?

re: spoiler- She ends up with Draco!? Lord, I hope you're joking! laughing, not that it would stop me from reading anyway. I'm here for the long haul! You're reason for including Hermione fetching the horcrux books is one of the major reasons I appreciated you adding that detail!

Terrific ending! You did a great job with Ron comforting Hermione. It was balanced nicely between comfort and Hermione becoming aware of the fact that it feels natural to be in his arms. Thanks for showing Hermione getting the horcrux books. What a lot of hard work you've done! I look forward to the next!

"...but I must join the battle with the Death Eaters. If you’d be so kind.”
Interesting word usage, there. "With", not "against". Laying a false track and keeping us guessing just as JKR did. Very nice.
It was no easier to read of Dumbledore's death than it was the first time. (But, the Fat Lady made me smile despite the grief.)

I like that you brought up Ron's feelings about Felix. I always agreed with him that thinking you had taken Felix would be just the same as having taken it. Sometimes you make your own luck.
And, before reading this chapter, I'd never before considered the possibility that Ginny and Dean's break-up perfectly coincided with Harry having taken Felix. Very nice work, as usual!

Despite the fact that I know what's coming, I still can't wait for your updates. This is a brilliant series of stories you've come up with. I have yet to find a better canon Hermione than yours. Excellent work, can't wait for the next update.

the last part with Hermione-bitchiness was great
I admit, I was surprised by the H/G interaction in this part ... any other time, it's nice but while they don't know what's gonna happen with Ron it appeared unexpected (to me)
