Wow.  That's intriguing, disturbing, and sad.  Very original, very interesting, and very well done.  You just might give a slash warning, but the premise itself is so chillingly--believable.

Author's Response: Oh sod! Sorry, I meant to include that in the author's notes but has so many issues with the new interface (first fic at TQP), I completely forgot. Thanks, and thanks for letting me know you liked the story, too.

Yeah, it's pervy and smutty : ), but the hotness between Ron and Hermione, even though we-through-Harry shouldn't be seeing it, is actually such a vivid, sensual, tender window into how much they love each other, their ecstasy at just finally getting to Be Together.  Love it!

 (But--tiny quibble--although Hermione's fingers might have been dusty and sooty and even bloody if they hadn't had a chance to wash since the battle, it doesn't seem they could have still been ink-stained at this point?)



Author's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful and thorough review!  I'm so glad you liked it.  By the way, her hands are ink stained because after the battle she was working with Ministry officials/Hogwarts staff on correspondence and 'lists' - this would have been covered but couldn't work it into the flow of the story.  So there was a reason for it!  Plus it helps make it clear to Harry that it is Hermione. ;)

What an astonishing, fascinating, unusual story.  The details of canon and of canon characters are so meticulous, and yet your own entire vocabulary of details from the altiplano is woven in so seamlessly, that it seems as if this may really have happened in some parallel HP universe.  I absolutely loved Rawa's "formal" attire at the ceremony, and worry now that there really may be so much more to Snape's motivations, after that talk with Dumbledore, that she could not have been aware of and that may hurt her.  And Voldemort and his own fascination with her are still out there, and Lucius' apparent hatred of her.  Can't wait to see more!

Author's Response: You can't imagine how much a review like this warms my heart. I do hope you enjoy the rest of the story!

This was really well done.  I think you captured the details of their reactions.  Ron was true to his character, but in a grown-up, Auror-trained way--and his unwavering love and support for Hermione were beautiful.  Poor Hermione! Staggering that they could give him a slap on the wrist for such an obvious assault, with all the evidence from St. Mungo's AND photos.  It was interesting that you managed to keep it plausibly within a (post) canon timeline, too, with extra motivation for Hermione to go into Magical Law.  Loved the sisters-in-law banding together, and how Charlie had made his point to Molly.  AND how the Code was practically a character.  And  liked the very end, as well, vigilante though it may be, considering how corrupt the system was.

Author's Response:

Hello Beautiful earthlight!

  I was blown away by your review. It really touched me! Thank you for that. I was honestly trying to take a very delicate subject and try to write a story that didn't cross the line. I wanted to explore how being raped would have affected our girl and also Ron. It was one of the most emotionally draining stories I've ever written. As a woman, I tried putting myself in her place while I was writing this story and at times it really took a toll on me.  Hermione is such a strong character in canon and I didn't want to take that away from her in this story. I thank you again for such an eloquent review as it truly made my day! *hugs*

XXX,

Well, I'm surprised you haven't received more reviews yet, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say the beginning is interesting and well done, and I look forward to the rest.

Author's Response: Well, thank you for the kind words and I'm happy you like it so far!

Seven Minutes by fleurjardin Rated: FG13 - Family Guidance13 starstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
Summary:

If she hadn’t been so drunk, Rose realized, she definitely wouldn’t have agreed to play Seven Minutes in the broom closet.  And if she hadn’t agreed to play the game, she definitely would not be shoved up against the wall in a closet much smaller than she’d have liked, trying in vain to avoid touching Scorpius Malfoy.

 

No, she would not play the drunken tart who surrendered in her state to the enemy, handsome and brilliant though he was.

This is such a nice vignette of people--all of them scarred in various ways--beginning the process of healing, coming together, recreating their world.
