I really liked this.  Knowing the pain, the frustration, the exhaustion that was wracking their bodies after the final confrontation, I can see Ron just getting lost in his need for emotional release.  The shock you portrayed in him at discovering his mistake was very good and I loved that fact that they didn't actually finish the act and yet, Hermione did give him the release he needed.  Very nicely done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much!  You really get the point of the story - the depths to which grief can push you, and the lengths to which one will go to help a greiving loved one.  I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

Hey Helena!  Just found this story of yours and thought I'd give it a read.  Interesting so far.  I'm not usually into non-canon pairings just the way you're not into Ron/Herm, but I do like stories that delve into Draco's more human side.  So, I'm going to keep reading and see how this plot develops!  I didn't know you wrote.  What a neat surprise.  I've been so busy working on my own and beta reading for others that I rarely get to just sit down and read.  So, sorry I missed you before!

Author's Response:

I am dying of embarrassment. That you, such a wonderful writer should bother with my fic, frankly I'd rather you had not found it. It's not false modesty nor am I looking for sympathy. Compare to you I really suck! My reviews have no strings attached that's why I don't promote  my fic anywhere when I comment on someone's story. Shameless as I am I dared write in English when it is not my mother tongue. Without Indie (yes, she used to be my beta until life got complicated for her) I would have been lost. She took this disaster of a story and made it into something which at least made some sense. I can imagine her rolling her eyes at what she read. Indie encouraged me to post it here at The Pitch so here I am. She also said what a wonderful writer you are and that's why I ended up reading your stories. Although the response (comments) to my fic are a mixed batch and some have been quite antagonistic I decided to keep on posting here just because I feel awful leaving the two or three interested in it abandoned, so to speak. Anyway, best of luck with your plans at screen writing, God knows you have the talent. Looking forward for more of your well thought, ingenious plots.

 Hugs,

 Elena

I can totally understand the typos when the language barrier exists.  You might want to mention that in your intro at the top so that readers will understand why there are those little skips in grammar.  That way, they'll probably overlook it and focus more on the story.  Even though I loathe the occasional "constructive" review, I try to use it to improve my writing and the same will happen with yours.  So, just keep posting and improving! Good luck!!



Author's Response:

Thank you for you advise. 'Constructive' reviews here and in the other two sites I post my fic have helped me a lot, even the mean ones. Although I've been betaless for a while, not for lack of trying let me tell you, I read and read and re-read again trying to find mistakes. I do what I can and try to have fun. Now that your fic is finished I may not be around The Pitch as often but I will make an effort to find fics in this site which might interest me. Thanks again.

Hi Lovely!

  Thank you for the kind review as it means a lot coming from somebody of your caliber. Thanks also for all the support and beta work you have done for me this year. You're friendship has meant the world to me dearest! And, no there is no money to be had for fan fiction writing. Oh well, the firends you make and the chance to be creative is money enough!

Happy Holidays from Your Stinker!
