This was completely depressing, but heck if I won't be there reading the next chapter.  I'm not in the Hr/R camp right now, he has been too much of a jerk.  A little happiness for Hermione, or more angst?  And shame on Harry for not being a better friend.  Update soon!

Author's Response: Hello! Chapter 2 will actually provide some comedy for you. Unfortunately I'm not done with Hermione just yet as far as angst is concerned. As for Ron you'll eventually find out why he did what he did. My Harry is sort of clueless and provides comic relief. He hasn't given up on Hermione though. I hope you enjoy the rest of the story!

Oh, my gosh.  I loved this chapter.  I will now list them:1.  Asking for Ogdens.  She was handling it so cool.2.  Wow, the wife showed up.  Oooo, I was hoping it would come out that they were sleeping together.  Neither of them seemed to realize how Hermione is now. 3. "Both Harry and Ron looked at her like they didn’t know who she was anymore, like they had been kicked in the stomach."  Its what they deserve.  4.  And oh my goodness, the owl.  I am so glad they realized who it was from. (and who she was going to see, which was David, right?)5.  Telling Ron where to go and leaving him livid.I don't care about everyone being OOC.  There are too many stories out there with Ron sleeping with countless girls and Hermione staying a virgin and never having anything else but him.  I read one story on CM that had Hermione being the liberal one and not Ron.  It was sadly never finished I don't think.  Update soon, please, I can't wait!

Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far! I wanted Hermione to be the screwed up one for once. Wait until you hear about some of the other things she does! Just know that I am truly a diehard Ron and Hermione fan...so you know something has to eventually happen to bring her back to her senses.  I hope you keep reading! {smile}

Great chapter.  So it really was a secret that she kept from her partner for over a year?  And why is Ron trying to come back?  Hermione isn't going to want him (at least not right now).  Can't wait to see where she went after that owl.  And I can't wait for Ron to meet David.  Update soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Author's Response:

Hi TaMara!

    The next chapter will tell you exactly where Hermione went...I think you can guess! Hermione has been keeping alot of things hidden from everybody. Now that "the cat's out of the bag" look for things to spiral out of control. Unfortunately, it has to get worse to get better.

I look forward to hearing from you again!

I am so mad. I totally left a review, and I come back to read what Herself had written and no review!  I bet I was the first to read it, I went here and I saw you were on and I raced like a bat out of hell to sign on and see what you were up to. Low and behold a new chapter of my favorite story!

Oh my gosh. For a second there I thought she was going to be called on to kiss the teacher.  I don't know what it is, I guess its the fact that he married someone else. I just don't want them together. Sure he wasn't faithful to the marriage, but he didn't trust her enough! What changed for him to realize that she could handle it?

So shes worried about what he'll do when he finds out about what shes done. Like he's been an angel!  She has to heal herself before she gets back with him, or he'll be her new crutch, like booze and sex with strangers.

Well, looks like David bit the big one. I'm kinda sorry, I liked him. When he wasn't trying to kill Hermione. They say the other side of love is hate and boy did he show it. Anyway, he drove Ron crazy and that made me happy.  Am I too twisted? Nah, I just hate betrayal!!!

Thanks so much for updating this story. Sorry RL has been so sucky. Love from, TaMara



Author's Response:

My dear, sweet TaMara! *hugs you*

  Oh but your comments made me grin and laugh outloud! I'm not too upset to see David gone either. There is a lot more to that murder that will be explained in the next chapter. (for once, I'm not going ot leave you hanging...except for ONE major detail(!)) (I guess that still makes me evil) *laughs* The characters of Ron and Hermione in this story are rather complicated. I'm not going to lie and say that I sort of enjoy all these hidden layers to Hermione. It's like there is still so much to resolve with her and I'm trying to sort it all out. *grins*

   There are only going to be 35 chapters and I don't know how the hell I'm going to do it. *sighs* I don't want it to be rushed, as I do have some place that this is all going. Maybe write longer chapters? I dunno'....

   I take it you didn't get a job yet. BOOOOO! It took me a year to find a job in the field you're in. I will tell you that it's SO worth it once you do find a job.  I love what I do, even if I'm stressed out 99.9% of the time. *laughs*

  Thank you so much for always being here. You make writing worth it!!! *hugs*

LOVE you!

Well, I got some answers.  He did do it intentionally, Hermione is training to be a Shadow, and he is super strong (and super ticked).  Will this cause some more conflict?

And OMG, he was willing to get rid of his wife?!  He is crazy!  Can't wait for the next chapter!



Author's Response:

Hi TaMara!

    Hermione has no clue of what David is capable of...stay tuned!*wink* Thanks for reading TaMara!

I hope we will find out what the Master Codex is next chapter?  They let her down so much, they deserve what they see in her now. 

And what the crap with Ron!  What in the world did he do?  Is the marriage over now?  Doesn't he care at all about the woman he married?  I absolutely can't wait for an update!



Author's Response:

Hello Dear TaMara!

    Yes you will find out what the Master Codex is in the next chapter. As for Ron, he's trying to right a wrong...but I can't explain that all yet. You have been such a faithful reviewer that I feel I owe you some insight into the next chapter. Hermione is going to do something a bit shocking...I just hope you like it! Please let me know! *smile*

Wow oh wow.  Whew, I am speechless about some of the things she did.  I have never read Hermione like this I just have to admit, I love it.  Please, please, please update soon!

Author's Response:

Hello dear TaMara!

   Yes...Hermione has went off the deep end! But don't you worry...even though it will take awhile...the real Hermione will come back! *sighs* Let me know what you think of the next chapter and I can't wait to hear from you again!

Take as much time as you need to heal Hermione.  I'll be along for the ride, even if it takes 50 chapters.  Heck, I wish it would so I would have some great things to read!

That wasn't the first time shes done something like that though with Jack was it?  Oh boy, with David, the security guard, Jack, and I think she mentioned that with David she wasn't exactly faithful with him, Ron has a LOT he is going to have to make up for.



Author's Response:

Hello dear TaMara!

   I'm glad to hear from you again! *smiles* Yes, it will take Ron awhile to gain back hermione's trust. He is also carrying alot of emotional baggage himself which will come out eventually. Our girl has been with alot of other men and no it isn't the first time she's done something like she did with Jack.  I hope it's not 50 chapters! *giggles* I'm shooting for 25...but we'll see! Thank you for your compliments...you really make my day!!!!

Ok, to be honest, when I read that it was going to be a G/H chapter, I was a little sad (I hate Ginny).  But I actually liked your Ginny, which has only happened ONCE in all my time of reading fanfic.

He HAS been a bad friend.  Can't wait to see what your going to update next!



Author's Response:

Hello Gorgeous TaMara!

    Ginny is not my favorite character either. I just don't know enough about her. I'm glad you liked her in this story.*whew* I do agree, Harry hasn't been that great of a friend to Hermione...the wanker!*smiles* I do so look forward to hearing from you again my dear!

Whoa! I was totally wondering what happened with her parents, but oh my gosh! She doesn't even seem embarrassed that she got caught, just upset about the fight. Loved this chapter by the way. Gave Ron a taste of what he's missing AND it sent bad hermione on her way. I do hope she is being safe in other ways as well. I loved how she punched him out! Will he try to find out where she is? If her parents know how she is now, do they know Rons involvement?

Thank you so much for the update, I love this story so much.

Author's Response:

It's My TaMara! *squee!*

Hello my dear friend!!! Our poor girl has really burned a few bridges. All of her craziness has really alienated her from all the people she loves. And she's not done yet! *giggles* I truly just can't help myself. *sighs*

I enjoyed writing that sexually tense moment between them. Trust me when I tell you that I'd like nothing more than to see them jump into bed (or wherever) and have a complete and utter shag fest, but I have to show restraint. *winks*

Hermione's parents have no idea about the situation with Ron. They do know that they're not together anymore but that is the extent of it. She has gotten very good at hiding things from people and so far, only Ron has been able to rattle her chain. Look for her to do some more crazy bat shit things in the next chapter. *grins*

Thanks as always for your kind comments as they mean so very much to me. I really hope you'll like the next chapter and thanks again for being so darn lovely! *hugs*

Much love,

Wow.  Please tell me Ron doesn't have some dumb reason.  Hermione deserves better than that (because she sure hasn't gotten what she deserves in the past).

Oh man, I about busted my gut with Ron and Harry.  What Harry said was absoultely true.  Can't wait for Ron to try to train.  Dont think David would appreciate it.  And neither will she.  Its going to take a lot more than just training together to get to some simbalance of where they were.  And Ron is just wanting to fix her, he doesn't want her back does he?  Is the reasons he married Shannon just gone now?

I can't help it, she might be broken and less morally Hermione, but I love this version!  I can't tell what shes going to do and she says everything. Shes awesome. 

Update soon!



Author's Response:

Hello Lovely TaMara!

   You are adorable! The reason Ron broke it off with Hermione will be revealed a few chapters down the road. I was extremely upset after I wrote it. He did something on that mission that he has never gotten over. Ron feels guilty and ashamed. Ron does love Hermione, but don't think for a minute she'll make it easy for him. This Hermione does not so easily forgive and forget. It will take a lot of effort on his part to even get them to be friends again.

David is another matter. He does something in another chapter that will force Hermione to watch her back. As for Shannon, she really is a victim. I feel kind of bad for her and I think Ron is doing the right thing in ending it. Again more explanation will come from that chapter when Ron reveals what went wrong on that mission.

Thank you for your kind review! Please let me know what you think of the next chapter dearest!

oh you lucky lucky woman!! remember to post some pictures please. and if i catch the news on cnn that rupert grint has been kidnapped ill keep quiet and not tell the authorites. id tell you how jealous i am, but im gonna keep this clean. i

i cant believe the loop hole! i admit, it does make me happpy that there is a set way out, but i totally didnt see that proposal coming!

heres a story. sometimes if i dont have an assignment i have to get up early. well, one morning i turned on the tv so i wouldnt go back to sleep and i watched an episode of boy meets world. and oh my gosh could harry fit right in with those boys. i was just sitting there and it popped into my head, the older brother is just as dumb as lodt harry!



Author's Response:

Bwahahahahahaha! Oh my TaMara, I just LOVE you!

   My husband will be with me, so if I do try and kidnap Rupert Grint, I would have to do it when he wasn't around...which may be hard. Can I smuggle you in my bag so you can help me??? *laughs* Actually, I am scared to death to get on the airplane. I'm really having a hard time thinking about it. I think, perhaps, maybe I'll focus on how excited I am to visit England and that is the only way I can get over there. (damn, but I wish Portkeys were REAL!) *sighs*

   I have gone crazy in this story. I like to go off on tangents sometimes. It is still lined up where I want it to go, but I just never know what I'm going to write next. I have been blessed with a wonderful beta who allows me to just go with it. I want to get going with Shadow story and hope to do so in the next chapter.

  And I am going to have to check out "Boy Meets World". Who knows-it may just inspire me! Poor Harry. *giggles*

  Thanks as always for being so sweet and making me smile. I hope you'll like the rest of the story and please say a prayer for me dear friend that I don't have a full-blown panic attack in the airplane. I will post some pictures-scout's honor! *major hugs*

Much, much love!

Oh my goodness!  Was this an awesome chapter or what!

Ginny fighting Ron has been the best scene I have ever read with her charater.  Choking him?!  Brilliant.  And calling Ron on all his $*&@?!  She said a lot of things that had a lot of merit.  Amazing.  I am now a Ginny fan.  If only in this story.

And Charlie disapearing because he was puking?  Thank goodness, I'd thought he fell into a time vortex or something.

And I know she sleeps with strangers and married men and stuff, and she drinks a lot, but its not like she turned into a neo death eater.  Although all these things are really bad for her.  And she is choosing a career that is crazy to do. 

Although I do agree with Harry, and this was a great line:

"Harry didn’t have the heart to tell him that he thought it was."

Thank you so much for the update!  I am not kidding when I mention that I JUST thought of this story today.  Or it might have been yesterday.  I was wondering why no ones gone in this direction with Hermione before.  Its cool to read about this kind of Hermione.

Update soon!!

 



Author's Response:

Hi Beautiful TaMara!

   I am so, so happy you liked this chapter! My Ginny speaks her mind and is very fiesty and fiery. I have wanted to write a scene where Ginny and Ron argue for a while now. I couldn't let Charlie get harmed...as I picture him as being good at heart. And no-Hermione is not a Death Eater, she is just very fragile and on the edge. I do hope Harry and our boy can bring the sweet Hermione back from the brink! You are so kind! Your comments mean the world to me darling! *sniffs*

Oh my.  I love this Hermione.  She really had some great lines in this chapter!  I loved when she said she thought she was in hell!  And WHOA, she totally told Ron the what for.  As if indeed!!

Does she remember that David did it?  If not, I can't wait until she does.  And I can't wait for Ron to find out that he did it.

This Ron and Harry are pretty clueless, I love it.  Ha ha, Ron thinks her swearing was from the bump.  He really hasn't been around her that long.  And to hex his sister for telling the truth?  Does he not realize that she is kinda a drunk tart?  (although I love her!)

I love that with this story we get to see angry broken Hermione and with the other we get to see scared broken Hermione.  Update soon!!

(also, I couldn't find that lj commnunity, could you send me a link?)



Author's Response:

Hello Lovely TaMara!

How are you dearest? Did you recover from having your wisdom teeth pulled? I hope so! Sorry I did not answer sooner as I didn't realize I had another review. (I am so clueless at times) Hermione has changed so much that Ron is really going to have his work cut out for him to get her to try to be civil to him. She is lost, angry and broken hearted. Ron will come to realize that baby steps are better than trying to be in her face. Their friendship is broken and it will not be easy for Hermione to let him back into her life. David is a real creep. Her memory of what happened will come back and when it does- watch out! *grins* You always say the most lovely things! I just adore you! On my bio page here at TQP I put the link up to HP_Love. You will be able to read "She is Beautiful" but the other stories may be locked to "members only" because they are rated RT.

Well, we all know she doesn't want to be rescued!  I laughed at her trying to get firewhisky.  She sure does love the stuff.

After all these chapters now we know.  I knew there had to be a good reason.  That is so sad.  He was messed up and he didn't straighten up, he just made a bigger mess.  It still affects him after all this time.  He is still haunted and he doesn't even have the one person he needs because he drove her away.  Hmm... does Hermione remember it was David?  Will Ron think about the red haired man who came to her flat?

I feel for you hon, that was something hard.  Will be looking forward to whatever you put up next.



Author's Response:

Hello Lovely TaMara!

I am so relieved that this chapter is up in order to explain Ron's side of things. It is sad. I felt horrible after writing it. I wish I could answer your questions as you know I adore you to pieces. I hope you like the rest of the story dearest. Thank you for your lovely review as it means the world to me!!!!
