I was wrong! What is she going to do? She killed the bastard! David raped her didn't he? Ron is showing more restrain, thank goodness! I work with teenaged boys. One thing I learned throughout the years is that when they act out of anger or fear or desperation there is no point in talking to them. Once they let it all out and it doesn't happen right away; it might take minutes, hours, days or months, then they might open up or not. Changes come from within and Hermione is hearing whispers in her head of something close to her conscience telling her that she is not totally lost.

My only hope is that when it is all over she keeps some of her new personality because a no nonesense, hold no punches Hermione deserves to live on.

I am ignoring your Harry, he annoys me to no end.

 Charlie talking to Ron about the case is not very professional is it? A good Auror/detective wouldn't divulge details of his investigation to family members just like that. Or maybe he wants to give Ron the heads up so that he can protect Hermione.

 So, I have more to read but sleep is taking over. Until tomorrow.

Author's Response:

Oh Elena! *laughs*

  What happened in that bathroom will come out eventually. I had Charlie talk to Ron about the investigation because I wanted to show how Ron is feeling about it. He knows deep down she did something or knows something about it. The Hermione he used to know would never do such things and I think he holds onto that image of her. He won't allow for her to take the fall for David's death no matter what. (>:

   Yes, continue to ignore my Harry if you like. He's my guilty pleasure. *laughs*

   Thanks again for the reviews. It's a crazy train kind of story, so look for more craziness to come your way, dear! *hugs you*

Much love!

Hermione, Harry and Charlie are close to finding out Ron's horrible secret. Hermione's reaction when she learns the truth could go either way. She could feel so bad about it that might pardon Ron or she could be so mad at him for not trusting her that the abysm between them might widen even more.

The murder investigation plus the introduction of the Shadows it's going to make this fic a whole lot better. Well done!

Oh Elena!

  You know, sometimes I find a review so very touching. This is one of those times and thank you so much for that. The revelation of Ron's ordeal will change things slightly. She is still going to be very angry at him. Look for her to find out in a sort of odd way. Thanks again for the sweet review. You make it all worth it, dear! *hugs*

Much love,

I told BrandedFaithfully (she helped me with a few chapters of my fic a while ago) that although I'll never be able to warm up to the Ron and Hermione pairing it was the other things happening in the fics which kept me coming for more.

 You have managed to do just that. Because of your talent and wonderful plot I am enjoying a really amazing fic.

I also care very much about what happens between Ron and Hermione here. Thank you.

Loopholes in a binding for life contract? What exactly is Harry thinking or plotting to get out of the Shadows? I sensed more action and suspense coming and I can't wait. My daughter is pestering me about the computer. I shall continue reading some other time. Great job!

Elena



Author's Response:

Oh my goodness, Elena!

  I cannot tell you enough how incredibly touching your reviews have been. *hugs you* I know that Ron and Hermione are not everybody's cup of tea. I grew to love the couple through the books and longed for more. I have friends in fandom that have a love of all sorts of pairings (even non-canon) and that's fine with me. HP fandom to me has always been about keeping these characters alive. I miss the books so much and so fandom has become an outlet for me.

  I am tickled that you like the story so far. It is a crazy story to be sure. Out of all the stories I have ever written, I find this one to be the one that allows me to sort of 'go where I may'. (even if it is completely crazy) *grins*

   Thanks again for your reviews. Look for more tension between Ron and Hermione to come your way. You truly have made me smile and for that, I honestly don't know how to thank you enough! *hugs*

I hope you and your daughter have a lovely evening and much love!

You know, I was just as annoyed as Hermione was with all the interrogation she subjected to. If they want her back, the Weasleys and Harry should give her space and time. Forcing her to face Ron, chat with them as if nothing happened is an insult to her, as if her pain or what Ron did to her had no impact or is of no significance.

 It was good how Hermione put Padma on her place. I hope I can read more than just one chapter. 

Elena



Author's Response:

Good Evening, sweet Elena!

   Yes, everyone else is trying to get Hermione to just give in. She isn't going to forget the pain...can't forget really. Hermione needs time to be able to trust again. This will not come easy for her! *winks*

   You're adorable! "I hope I can read more than just one chapter."  *smiles* I am about to head off to bed as it has been a LONG week. I honestly hope I can work on another chapter this weekend. Soemtimes all I want to do on Saturday is sleep! (sad but true!) You have a wonderful evening and thanks again for being so sweet! *hugs you*

Much love!

Like I said before, Hermione needs space. I understand her actions warrant an intervention of sorts but in order for her to get better she needs to acknowledge the sad state of her life and she needs to forgive Ron. I can't believe I'm saying this about Ron! LOL

I still think Ron should not be forgiven so easily.

Hermione's dad is a piece of work! Again, Hermione acted badly but the fact that she had sex with a married man might have given her parents a hint that something wasn't right with her. I mean what she did was totally out of character.

Does she really have to say goodbye to her parents for good? Undercover agents might be gone for a long time but they don't sever ties with their families. Anyway, loving the story and not sleepy yet. One more chapter then.

Elena

Author's Response:

Hello Sweet Elena!

  Horrible day at work. UGH! If I could just hit the lottery... *winks* Hermione has totally isolated herself from everybody. And the more she does such wicked and immoral things, the more she actually wants to be detached from that life that once made her so happy. It's kind of sad, really.

  As for her parents, she will regret severing ties. Something major will happen down the road that will profoundly affect her, The guilt will eat her alive. I wish I could tell you what I had in mind, but I am completely evil, dear.

  And don't feel badly about giving Ron sort of a chance! *laughs* Thanks as always for your lovely reviews. They keep me going!!! *hugs*

Much love!

The thing is Hermione is not the woman she once was. She has sex with whoever and whenever she needs it so Ron has to accept that to fight for her honour means having to accept that at the moment she has very little honour left to defend.

I sensed more headaches for Hermione and a bit of more digging herself into a deeper hole before she actually starts climbing out of it.

Elena



Author's Response:

Yes, Elena!!!!

  Oh my goodness but you totally get it!!!! She is going to honestly have to hit rock bottom before she is willing to make a change. You made me smile!!! Bless you, dear!!! *hugs you tight*

I can't wait for Hermione to return the favour and give David a taste of his own medicine! Knowing her it should a thing of beauty.

Elena



Author's Response:

Elena! *happy dance*

  I could tell you something about that...but...no  I can't! UGH! She does something....or does she? It's quite a few chapters away and I can't say a word as I sort of didn't reveal anything-just "implied". 

I'm terribly evil, aren't I???

Much love,

Well, I'm speechless. Ron has gone through hell and back. Considering what he experienced I'm surprised he is not as damaged as he should be. Generous of him and true to his character which made me think that Hermione, at least in the context of this fic, is not as strong as I thought.

It doesn't excuse Ron cheating on Hermione or his wife. I still think it's a despicable when one breaks vows no matter the type of relationship.

One question. Are Ginny and Harry married or living together? Two or three chapters ago I remember Harry mentioned Ginny as his wife. I don't recall which chapter but I do recall the word wife. 

Anyway, hell of fic. I might be able to read one or two more chapters before bedtime.

Cheers,

Elena



Author's Response:

Hello Elena! (>:

  That was probably the hardest chapter I have ever written. I can remember being all emotional over it. It doesn't excuse Ron's behavior, but I think it might help to understand him better. (if that makes any sense at all!) *grins*

  I will double check that Harry being married to Ginny situation. They are supposed to be living together, but goodness knows I might have screwed that all up. *laughs*

  Thanks so much for your lovely reviews. I'm exhausted and have had a crazy day at work. I don't even know if I'll make it until 10:00! You give me a bright spot in my day and I sure do appreciate it so much! *hugs you tight*

Much LOVE!

Well, Ron is certainly getting but a taste of what is to come from Hermione. Before I write some stupid, incoherent review I shall go to bed. Toronto is having a really windy night, as long as snow is not in the mix. Thank you for this wonderful fic. I promise to come back to it as soon as I can.

 Elena



Author's Response:

Hello Elena!

  You are just the sweetest. I hope you got a good night's sleep. And Ron is certainly going to be on the craziest rollercoaster of his life in dealing with our girl! *winks*

Much love!

A dark Hermione is sad and also interesting to read about. I believe an angry, hurt, 'don't give a f^*#@' Hermione says things to Ron or Harry the real Hermione would have never dare say out loud. What I'm trying to say is, that I like the way you portray her pain and anger.

 Ron on the other hand, up to now, is a selfish son of a bitch. Just like that he gets rid of his wife, no explanations or considerations for an innocent, oblivious Muggle. My only hope is that Hermione gives him as much hell as is humanly possible so that he finally grows up and behaves like a man.

 Elena



Author's Response:

Oh Elena!

  This review made me giggle.  "My only hope is that Hermione gives him as much hell as is humanly possible so that he finally grows up and behaves like a man." Trust me when I tell you-she's far from done with giving him hell! You make me smile after a hard day at work! *hugs*

Much love!

Poor Hermione. I enjoy her confidence and outspoken demeanor but it comes at a high price: the emptiness and pain in her life. It will take a long, long time for her to trust again. I do hope she keeps that sharp tongue of hers though. A feisty Hermione is much more fun.

 Elena



Author's Response:

Hello Dearest!

  I to, enjoy writing a Hermione who says whatever the hell she wants to. (bless her) She acts out to cover up what's really going on inside her head and more importantly-in her heart. She has a long road ahead of her and it won't be easy. I hope you'll enjoy the next chapter and thanks again for stopping by!!! *hugs*

Much LOVE,

Ginny was outstanding and exactly the way I always imagined her. In the books we did witness a bit of that temper of hers. For the first time you made me smile. The fight between Harry and Ginny was dead on. Good for her for coming to Hermione's defense.

Elena



Author's Response:

Elena! *happy dance*

  I have always imagined Ginny as fiery and feisty as ever. She isn't going to take any crap from anybody!!! *laughs* I also like her with clueless Harry. Thanks again for the kind comments! *hugs you tight*

Much love!

Now we have a gruesome murder and a few mysteries to solve because Ron's marriage and what happened in that mission might be one of the many keys needed to reach Hermione. This fic is getting better and better.

 Elena



Author's Response:

My dear Elena!

  You are a total sweetheart, you know that? That mission Ron was on is tied to something that comes up much later on in the story. *winks* I still have yet to write about that connection! *laughs* 

MUCH LOVE!

Good, very good. Maybe all the corpses have something in common. Hermione might be in pain but she is still the smartes witch ever. I need to go to sleep but it is so hard to stop reading! What is Ron hiding?

Elena



Author's Response:

Ha! Ha! Elena!

  Go to bed, my dear! I am heading there myself in a minute. (LONGGGGG day!) Hermione still has that glorious mind of hers. It will help her out much later in the story!!! *winks* You have made my day, you know that??? *hugs you tight*

MUCH LOVE!

So now David is going to add more misery to Hermione's life. Glad she got rid of him or did she? He could make her life a living hell out of spite.

Elena



Author's Response:

Hello Dear Elena!

  Oh yes, David is a real piece of work. Hermione does know that she can't trust him as far as she can throw him. She is going to have to watch her back from now on! Thanks again for taking time out of your busy day to leave a review. You're just too sweet! *hugs*

Much love!
