Summary: In the midst of the War, Hermione is kidnapped and held captive as Ron, Harry and Ginny search desperately for her. Hermione and Ron share a psychic connection, with which she tries to help him find her before it is too late.

A strong warning for this story, as it does contain the rape of a character and severe psychological trauma.

Like all of your other fics, I have been following this one for a long time.  As I already said, I only just registered for an account so I haven't left any reviews.  I'm going back and mentioning everything I remember from when I read each chapter. 

Author's Response: Hi Erika!  It's so nice to have you following my fics and I'm so pleased to know you are enjoying them.  Thank you so much for leaving reviews too- I really appreciate it!  *caramel cheesecake for you*

This was another fic that I saw recced somewhere on livejournal.  This and If a Man Answers were both recced in the same post and I decided to check them out.  I'm so glad I did!  Very compelling begining to this piece. It's hard to believe this is your first fanfic!

Author's Response: I had no idea it had been rec'ed over on LJ!  Well, I'm glad you found it and enjoyed the beginning.  This was, indeed, the first fanfic I ever started- too bad I haven't finished it up yet.  :o)  I am working on a new chapter...  *strawberry mousse for you*

I remember that the first time I read this I was so exciting that you were doing an alternating point of view.  I think that is one of the best things about this fic.  you take us through everything in detail and sometimes through both sets of eyes.  It's wonderful.

Author's Response: Yay for another review and I'm quite pleased to know the alternating POV is one of your favourite parts.  I quite enjoy switching it up that way, too.  Thanks again!  *chocolate chip cookies for you*

This chapter took me from interested to dying to see what happens next.  The idea of some kind of connection between them was so fascinating and I couldn't wait to see how it all played out. 

Author's Response: I hope the rest of the uploaded chapters justified your increased interest in the fic.  More of that connection will be coming up.  *key lime pie for you*

I remember thinking that this chapter was the first one to earn the NC-17 rating and the strong warning you put in the summary.  This kind of story is so compelling because almost everyone is afraid to ggo there but you just go like it's a normal thing.  It is a scary place you took us too and that man is just horrible.  I knew it was going to be a long road for poor Hermione. 

Author's Response: Yes, this was definitely the first to earn the NC-17 warning- and it wasn't the last either.  The category might not be the most appropriate, but it was the only one with a high enough rating for me to put this fic in it.  Poor Hermione, indeed; she and Ron have a long journey in store.  *butterscotch pudding*

I knew it was coming... or at least had a very good idea that it was... but it was still awful.  Again I need to say that you seem unafraid to write what you are.  It is a terrifying subject and you write about it frankly.  That's a rare gift I think.  I have a friend who was raped and she orgasmed during it.  She felt so incredibly guilty when it happened and it's still hard on her today.  She told me that a nurse told her about some women orgasming because they are naturally primed for it because of the position of the clitoral hood.  I've never read  about it in a fic before though and I think it's awesome that you went there.

Author's Response: Hi Erika!  Thank you for all of your lovely reviews!!!  Funnily enough, I am more afraid of the reactions to the chapter than to writing the chapters themselves.  I do quite a bit of trauma counseling in my professional life, so it's not difficult for me to talk/write about the subject.  My thoughts go out to your friend who experienced this situation- it's horrible all the way around.  I'm glad you connected to that part of the fic.  *carrot cake for you*

Date: 07/21/2008 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6 - Panic Attack

This chapter was fantastic! The near panic attack at the begining was so realistically portrayed.  I thought the stuff with Ron was particularly great. I started crying when they couldn't get out of there because of the wards.  You gave us hope and then dashed it.  But it was still fantastic!

Author's Response: Thank you so much!  I'm so glad you found the panic attack to be realistic and that you connected with the characters' plight.  *honey muffin for you*

Forgot to mention!  I was so happy about the kisses!  They were both appropriate and perfect for the situation.  Him joking at the end was great too. 

Author's Response: Yay, I'm so glad!  I thought those kisses were really necessary in those moments.  *sugar cookies for you*

Poor Ron, he must have been frantic with worry and anxiety over not hearing from her.  Seeing the last chapter from his point of view was a nice touch.  I really enjoyed the sibling relationship between Ron and Ginny in this and the last chapter. 

Author's Response: Thank you for continuing to review!  I'm glad you're enjoying seeing the events from his POV, as well as the interactions between Ginny and Ron.  I like their relationship, too.  :o)  *cherry pie for you*

Date: 07/21/2008 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 - Slipping Further Away

The flashbacks were almost more heartbreaking than the rape itself... though that part was horrible as usual.  I was so glad he came to get her and hoped that would be the end of it all.  The ending was so evil.  I remember waiting for months for an update! 

Author's Response: I know, the ending really was a bit evil.  I'm so sorry I left it hanging there forever.  I knew the flashbacks would be heart-breaking, but I needed to do some backstory and that was the best way.  I hope you were able to get the good parts of them. Thanks for another review! *apple tart for you*

Date: 07/21/2008 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9 - Barely Breathing

This chapter was so full of action and drama.  The action was written so well that I could picture exactly what you had written unfolding in my mind.  I could picture the rooms and his journey to Ginny, etc.  Ginny taking control and helping him at St. Mungo's was wonderful as was Neville's characterization.  I was sad to see that her nightmare is continuing despite her being safe but that it to be expected.  What a scary experience to live through... Fantastic chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you for another wonderful review!  I'm am so pleased to know that you could follow the action and picture it in your mind.  Her nightmare continues- and it will for a couple more chapters, but at least she's finally out of there!  :o)  So glad you enjoyed it.  *pumpkin pie for you*

Date: 07/21/2008 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10 - Finally Woken

This whole chapter was heartbreaking.  I loved being able to see what Ron was hearing from a first person perspective through Hermione's eyes.  The moments with her fighting with O'Cleary in her head were terrfifying and so sad.  The moments when she still doesn't realize she's safe with Ginny and Ron and Neville were so devastating.  I was so relieved for her when she finally understood they were real and she was safe.  I'm worried about what it coming up for her though and what Neville has to tell her.  The final moments with Ron were more heartbreaking than anything else.  Wow!

Author's Response: I'm so happy to know you enjoyed the POV on this chapter and to see through Hermione's eyes what was happening to her.  I think the very worst of everything is already over, but we do have some emotional pain and upheaval to go through before the ordeal is completely over.  Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts about the chapter and for all of your truly lovely reviews!  I really, really appreciate it!  *chocolate dipped strawberries for you*

Forgot to ask on the last review.  When can we expect an update?  It has been so long since there's been a new chapter.  This is perhaps the most unique and well-written fic I have come across in fanfiction and it would be an absolute shame for you not to finish it.  Do you have plans to continue or has it been abandoned?  Please please please continue and update!

Author's Response: I'm so sad to see how long it's been since I last updated.  To be honest, I lost the completed 11th chapter in a computer crash and had no back-up copy.  It was devastating and I've tried several times to re-create it, but it hasn't worked as I had hoped.  At this point, I've scrapped about 5-6 versions of the chapter, but I'm really happy with the one I'm working on right now.  I don't know how long it will be, but there will be an update at some point.  I definitely haven't abandoned the fic, but it's been slow in coming.  The muse is with me on If a Man Answers, so I'm writing quite a bit on that one.  Something will be along at some point.  Thank you again for all of your lovely reviews and for taking the time to let me know how much you enjoyed it!  *ginger snaps for you*

Hi risiepookie! I've been reading your fics for a long time so I finally decided to register and leave reviews for them all.  Sorry I have not reviewed before now but I didn't have an account and I was being lazy about it. 

Author's Response: Thank you so much for registering so you can leave reviews!  I'm thrilled to hear your thoughts.  :o)  *sugar cookies for you*

I forgot to say in my comment on the first chapter what I thought about the first chapter.  That was absentminded of me. LOL. 

This caught my attention right away.  I saw this fic recced somewhere on livejournal and decided to give it a shot. I was hooked from the first chapter ebcause I could tell you were going somewhere fantastic with it.   



Author's Response: LOL- that's pretty funny.  I'm so glad you saw the rec over on LJ.  I must go look for that, since I haven't seen it.  I'm thrilled you enjoyed it from the get-go.  *rainbow sherbet for you*
