Pandalei - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I think Draco is completely horrified and possibly out of his depth but he tries :)

scarlett78 - Thank you! Sorry for the long wait, I'll try to do better!

angeles - Thank you for sticking with the story! Hermione is rescued but I fear that's just the start od it...

annelaure - Thank you for reading and reviewing! At first I thought the subject is just a bit of strange history but when I started researching I couold hardly believe my eyes! Pretty much every big name in medical history of the last 2000 years has something to say on hysteria. Even one of the most heralded German doctors introducing all sorts of hydrotherapy was highly involved in hysteria treatment. That's something nobody tells you about when you go tread water!

Autumn  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I only post stories at archives because, well, that's what they are there for. I do not post at LJ at all, since I use this journal also for other purposes than fandom related things and I usually f-lock HP-related posts. Review responses are an exception :) I think there are a whole lot of stories on AFF that cover a very wide variety of subjects and many are much more disturbing than Hysteria, at least for me. Regarding the upcoming chapters, Hermione will be dealing with the aftermath of being a torture/rape victim and I promise that the last part of chapter 8 was the last bit of disturbing content. From there on, the story will be about healing.

Maseiden - Thank you! I hope I am doing all the medical stuff right! I have mixed treatments from several eras but many of them were most popular in Victorian times. Parts of medical history is truly terrifying. I've been looking through insane asylum documents and had to realise that the only 'crime' or 'condition' many of these people had was 'being poor'. I think I will be collecting some links and pictures to illustrate the story.

luna4917  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! Yes, Draco was quick and assertive in saving her and now he has a to deal with his guilt and her vulnerability...

paigeey07 - Thank you for reading and reviewing! She is out but she is not out of danger, yet.

nitesfool - Thank you! Neither the keeper nor de Belleme is going to give up that easily.

Sakura - Thank you! The story is definitely not abandoned and chapter nine is nearly finished, it's just difficult to write at the moment...

lemonade8  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! In the story, hysteria has nerver ceased to be a legitimate diagnosis in the wizarding world. In the Muggle world, the only reason why the diagnosis was no longer used was because the 'treatment' vibrators started showing up in the first porn films in teh 1920s. All of a sudden, pelvic massage had become something sexual, which, of course, was not suitable for a medical treatment. As there are no films in the wizarding world, this developement has bypassed its medical community. There will be something about this conflict in the next chapter :) I like your ideas for revenge!

UnseenLibrarian  - Thank you! Draco and Hermione are in for a difficult recovery. De Belleme and the keeper will not be thrown off that easily, though...

mirrorofrapture  - Thank you! The keeper really is a victim in his own way, his sense of reality is completely warped by his environment. Of course, this does not justify his actions...

Cosmyk Angel  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! There are more chapters to come! Chapter 8 had the last potentially disturbing part and from here on, it will be about healing and dealing with life after what happened.

Anonymous - Thank you so much! I am not a native speaker of English, so this really means a lot to me! When researching for the story, I was horrified many, many times and sometimes even had to stop reading and continue another day because the images and descriptions were so horrible. Some of the issues relating to hysteria as a legitimate diagnosis will be addressed in the next chapter. The wizarding world has not such a good track rate of dealing with psychological trauma (have some chocolate, Ginny) and mental ilnesses. I imagine that many Muggle-borns would seek help in the Muggle world. I also find it rather strange in canon that, although children appear to wear Muggle clothes for instance, they seem to lose any sort of connection during adulthood. In a way, the wizarding world and the Muggle world are seperated to the extreme, probably also the medical systems. I'd love to hear what you think about this chapter, since Harry has come into the story and the general public has found out :) It will also become a bit clearer why everybody is keeping quiet about this. It's hard to eradicate something that has been accepted for 2000 years...

Lucidia89  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! It will be very, very difficult for her. She might never be the same again.

Alkeni Synair  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'll do my best to update more quickly from now on!

anon_drarry - Thank you! I completely agree - medical practices were horrifying until very recently (and who knows what we might think of some of today's practices in the near future?) One doctor found that frightening hysterical or mentally ill patients seemed to 'calm' them, so his treatment consisted of threatening them with red hot iron pokers on a regular basis. The next chapters will deal with healing and what can and cannot be done against de Belleme.

Anon - Thank you so much! I will do my best to update more regularly, circumstances are working against me at the moment...

xoxo_babii - Thank you! I hope you liked the update :)

katiekrm  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I like your pickle suggestion! LOL! The armistice is going to bite Voldi in the arse, indeed. Mainly because it is working exactly as it is intended to work. The hostages were supposed to bond and be exposed to the enemy's culture to be a potential ally in the future. That of course goes both ways. The families, who hosted a hostage were hardly unaffected by it.

Chels - Thank you! There you go :)

AnakaReagan - Thank you! Draco was a likely person to find her, as he frequents St. Mungo's and has the authority to actually do something. Revenge on whom? De Belleme? That will be difficult, after all, his 'treatment' is pretty much by the book, if very accelarated. But I'll see what I can do :)

Blue - Thank you for reading and reviewing! Now, Hermione has to deal with the aftermath of what happened, on all kinds of levels...

slashymcslashface  - Thank you! You are right - Victorian medicine is a scary thing... Do you mean the keeper by 'mystery man'?

luna4917 - Thyank you! Yes, Draco is back and he is not happy! Also, although Hermione is finally free from de Belleme and his posse, she still has to deal with what happened. It will be a rocky road.

mirrorofrapture  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! Draco and de Belleme are basically polar opposites in their viewpoints on therapy. Nevertheless, they are both operating within the accepted spectrum of therapy of Victorian times. Hysteria was seen as a dangerous condition, which could lead to insanity. Many women were admitted by their husbands, brothers or fathers to insane asylums on claims of hysteria. Usually, as nearly 75% of all women (!) were believed to be hysterical, the treatment was an ongoing, regular and expensive therapy of 'pelvic massage'. But if a woman dared to be too 'outspoken' or denied the diagnosis or was simply in the way of a male relative, therapy could turn extremely ugly very quickly - electro shocks, lobotomies and clitoridectomies were supposed to be the ultimate cure. These women had very little to no say in their treatment since they were regarded as not fit to make decisions in their 'state of mind'. About ongoing education in the medical field... I took Victorian medicine as the model system for the wizarding world. De Belleme's method's are top notch in that regard. Hysteria was pandemic in Victorian times and doctors fell over each other to develop new and more efficient treatment than the traditional tedious manual labour that was pelvic massage. Everybody, who owns a vibrator or has a bidet in their bathrooms owes that to hysteria treatment. I kid you not. I hope you will continue to read the story. Hermione is out of St. Mungo's now and has to face the aftermath.

ThatRomantic  - Thank you! The torture is at an end, but that does not mean that all is well... I don't think you can subscribe as such at AFF but I also have the story posted at Granger Enchanted and Hawthorn & Vine.

nitesfool - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I am so sorry for the long wait! The climate here knocked me out, internet is not available for hours at a time and then something else came into play. I might tell you all about that in a little while... 

AgainAndAgain  - Thank you! I am doing my best *nudges non-heat-resistant muse*

Autumn  - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I am sorry that you are uncomfortable with this story. I did my best to warn about the darkness beforehand. It is a horror story, though, there is no doubt about that. I am a bit confused - you would have liked a link to what kind of site? I also must warn you, chapter 8 might also have content that is controversial/squicky, although it has to do with Hermione's mental state after what she went through rather than things done to her.

Pandalei  - Thank you! Here it finally is! Now to deal with the repercussions...

so_bri_quet  - Thank you! I am also glad Draco is finally back. Stopping the practice in its entirety might be difficult. One does not simply erase a treatment established for 2000 years.

mrequecky  - Thank you! I hope you liked the update :)

RosieRaven  - It wasn't a prank after all, now they have to act quickly or the sabotage will still be successful in the end and that would be very bad news for Hermione, the Malfoys and the wizarding world.

xoxo_babii - I am excited, too! I hope you liked it!

katiekrm  - That was a very close guess! Well done :) Draco did not simply give in to peer pressure. If the punishment would have seemed to easy on her, Voldemort could have simply demanded another one, and I am sure that would have been even more vile. While researching historical hostages I found some things... Being mutilated and thrown into a cold river to swim or sink, being sent back to their parents bit by bit over a span of months or years... Yeah. Draco was also protecting his family. After all, they are responsible for her and showing any sort of mercy would have reflected badly on all of them. Severus' expertise was vital to find her, but now they need to stop the war from reigniting...

Martha - Thank you! It's nice to know that things are unpredictable :)

kickyc  - Narcissa is really trying to make this work. Bless her.

Goldiducks - Oh wow! Thank you so much!

dracoschick007  - Thank you! Can't wait to hear what you think!

RosieRaven
 - There you go :) I hope you liked it! The Snape/Hermione history came as a surprise for many, there might be more surprises ahead...

 

katiekrm  - I was a bit worried about the Snape/Hermione bit, as many Dramione readers don’t particularly like that pairing. Snape will play an important role quite soon, portrait or not.

 

chyara  - YAY! Thank you! It is not quite as dramatic as that. I see the two of them as getting close through their work during the war and seeking comfort and companionship in each other.

 

Donavon – Wow! I am amazed that I managed to invoke such powerful emotions! I hope you like how the story progresses :)

 

mrequecky  - Thank you!

 

Pixi  - I am so happy that you like the story!

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!!

luna4917 - She will get out, soon, but then she will have to deal with repercussions on psychological, physical and social levels. It will not be easy.

Lucidia89 - We don't know the keeper personally. In my mind he is a Hufflepuff, has never been appreciated but wanted to help and care for people. His occupational environment has warped his sense of right and wrong, that's why he is abusing the power he has over Hermione. She is the perfect victim - nobody believes a word she says even if she is not incoherent from treatment and potions. Harry does look for her but he is not a blood relative so he won't get any information out of St. Mungo's but he is searching. Only Hermione is cut off from the outside world and so are we... Draco will be back in chapter six :)

Taryn  - Thank you! I hope you liked the update :)

Seriouslee  - It will get even worse in the first half of chapter six, but after that Draco will be back!

Rose Syler - Wow! Thank you so much for the wonderful review!

a-muse-ing  - I am sorry that the last two chapters made you so uncomfortable. It is a horror story inspired by the treatment of women in insane asylums during the Victorian era and before. It was near impossible to stay sane in a place like that and the environment was abusive and de-humanising. Please heed the warnings. It is possible to read the story even if you skip over chapter 5, chapter 6 will probably still be uncomfortable in the first half, but Draco will be back in the second half. After that, Hermioen will have to deal with the aftermath of what happened to her and that will also not be easy.

katiekrm  - Getting justice will be difficult, as de Belleme is doing nothing 'wrong' as per Victorian/Wizarding medical standards. As I mentioned over at GE, the woman inthe bathtub was not dead, but suffering from hypothermia due to hydrotherapy. Patients were submerged in ice water for extended periods of time to calm them.

WesleyY7  - Thank you so much! I think that was about the biggest compliment I ever received regarding my writing! The keeper is slowly but surely stepping up his violations - insane asylums were very abusive environments, simply because the staff held a lot of power over people, who could not defend themselves. Repercussions were highly unlikely for anything teh staff did to teh patients there. Draco will be back in the second half of chapter 6. I see him as a good healer, trying not to let personal like, dislike or history affect his professional performance. Which doesn't mean that he can't be quite acerbic :)

QuicksilverEyes  - Destroying de Belleme sounds awesome, I just have to find a way to prove that he did something wrong. We are dealing with a reputable Victorian doctor after all...

WesleyY7  -Thank you so much! I am so glad you like the story so far! As I indicated before, this story will go very dark in the next few chapters, beginning with the second half of chapter three. It mightbe hard to endure and seem hopeless (I wanted to curl up and scream while researching for this) but there will be hope in the end. really.

Moony - Thank you for reading and reviewing! The sessions with Draco were clearly not the worst the wizarding world of medicine has to offer. far from it. Although teh story will get very dark, I hope you'll keep reading :)

luna4917 - Draco is getting indeed distracted by his patient and Hermione is becoming dependent... We are now entering the dark recesses of the medical field in the wizarding world. For a time, there will be nothing but despair there, but I promise a certain knight in shining armour:)

Kogas Hentai Luver - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'd take a house call any day!

First of all: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I bounce around the house mad with joy whenever I receive one!

Does anyone know whether this thing about not answering reviews within chapters on AFF was just a temporary attempt to get people to use the forums?

I don't mind putting review responses on LJ but I like having everything in one place...

Anyhow, anonymus commenting is enabled, in case you would like to drop me a line but don't have an LJ. Or would like to hide. (I don't bite ;))


 

Insolence  - Feel free to squeal at any point of time J Draco lowered the wards on purpose. I think Hermione apparating out was the last straw. He knows that either side will see him as a traitor/enemy and he decides to face the music. He’s probably not quite thinking straight either.

 

Vegr_dvergrinn_Legolas  - There you go! Different from what you expected? Did you like it?

 

SomewhatGlutinous  - I think Hermione was planning on telling him, but the shock and impact of the fact that she is pregnant was a bit much. Both of them were at the end of their nerve. But there is a purpose for her staying away. Nobody besides the Weasleys knew who Jeanne was, turning back into Hermione made it possible to use what little leverage her name still held to help him. Would she have run with him, they would have labelled her a traitor, too.

 

mirrorofrapture – I hope you liked this one! I am sorry about the delay, I had to re-write, and RL kicked in... But I think I am back on track.

 

Dreamweaver  - Apparating out was a split decision, would she have waited any longer, he could have made her stay. I hope you liked this chapter. Draco finally found out about Hermione, but getting back together looks like a rather stoney path...

 

RZZMG  - There you are! I hope you liked this one – can’t wait to hear what you think!

 

lemonade8  - Well, they didn’t kill him, trying to be better than the other side and all that, but many would have liked to see him kissed.

 

appleblossum24 – Hermione would never just leave him to rot or deny him knowledge of his child, but circumstances are not the best at the moment...

 

chyara  - It took a little longer than planned, I hope you like it J

 

Ksasera – Wow! Thank you! Let me know what you think of the development!

 

sleeping_neko – There you go! I hope you enjoyed this chapter!

 

swiss miss  - Good cliffies, eh? I hope the chapter was worth the wait?

 

Autumn  - LOL – your poor screen! Hermione’s decision to run was quite a panicked spur-of-the-moment thing, but not as idiotic as it may seem. The Death Eaters are finished. Were she found with him, it would have been be so much harder to help him. The wizarding world is prone to non-trials and pre-fabricated judgements, as we see in Sirius’ case.

 

SarahWhtiman – Good to see you! I am so happy you like the story so far! I added you to the alert list and friended you btw J

First of all: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I bounce around the house mad with joy whenever I receive one!

Does anyone know whether this thing about not answering reviews within chapters on AFF was just a temporary attempt to get people to use the forums?

I don't mind putting review responses on LJ but I like having everything in one place...

Anyhow, anonymus commenting is enabled, in case you would like to drop me a line but don't have an LJ. Or would like to hide. (I don't bite ;))


 

Insolence  - Feel free to squeal at any point of time J Draco lowered the wards on purpose. I think Hermione apparating out was the last straw. He knows that either side will see him as a traitor/enemy and he decides to face the music. He’s probably not quite thinking straight either.

 

Vegr_dvergrinn_Legolas  - There you go! Different from what you expected? Did you like it?

 

SomewhatGlutinous  - I think Hermione was planning on telling him, but the shock and impact of the fact that she is pregnant was a bit much. Both of them were at the end of their nerve. But there is a purpose for her staying away. Nobody besides the Weasleys knew who Jeanne was, turning back into Hermione made it possible to use what little leverage her name still held to help him. Would she have run with him, they would have labelled her a traitor, too.

 

mirrorofrapture – I hope you liked this one! I am sorry about the delay, I had to re-write, and RL kicked in... But I think I am back on track.

 

Dreamweaver  - Apparating out was a split decision, would she have waited any longer, he could have made her stay. I hope you liked this chapter. Draco finally found out about Hermione, but getting back together looks like a rather stoney path...

 

RZZMG  - There you are! I hope you liked this one – can’t wait to hear what you think!

 

lemonade8  - Well, they didn’t kill him, trying to be better than the other side and all that, but many would have liked to see him kissed.

 

appleblossum24 – Hermione would never just leave him to rot or deny him knowledge of his child, but circumstances are not the best at the moment...

 

chyara  - It took a little longer than planned, I hope you like it J

 

Ksasera – Wow! Thank you! Let me know what you think of the development!

 I must say, I feel a bit silly doing this - is anybody even looking this up?

angeles - Thank you for reading and reviewing!! In this universe, everybody has an agenda and Hermione is turning the tables on them and using the situation to her advantage.

SomewhatGlutinous - Thank you! I was planning on looking at the things that you mentioned about chapter 9 and I promise I will not forget. RL happened, my husband came back from Germany and all of a sudden I found myself with zero time on my hands. I hope you liked seeing how the wizarding world is doing :)

lemonade - Thank you! Yes! All that played a part in what happened, as well as a spiked drink. Draco's friends are Slytherins and they know a weakness when they see one. Hurting her would not have been wise, but like this, the only person Draco can blame is himself and while it is beneficial to be on good terms with the High Reeve, but potentially getting the High Reeve kicked out and advancing their own career is even more attractive.

RZZMG  - Thank you! That's one of my favourite scenes, too. :)

chyara - Thank you so much for the nice review! I am glad I don't appear illiterate anymore! LOL I have a bookmark to an online dictionary for all the words starting with un- you would not believe the sheer volume! I was watching a Jack the Ripper documentary and somehow the word uncoffined was mentioned. Before I knew it, I was already writing. There are actually quite a few Jack the Ripper references, but nobody seems to have caught on...

coco - Thank you for reading and reviewing! As I mentioned to lemonade *points upward*, Draco is not exactly innocent, but he was also badly tricked by some of his his friends. At the same time, Hermione used the events for her own advantage. She could have stopped them, the contract would have let her out of the agreement at any time. But then, it is rather easy not to think straight in a situation like this. *cough* Yes.

margaritama - Thank you, thank you! The situation is hard on both of them. He used her, she used him. I guess you want to know whether this is a new beginning between the two of them after he rescued her? When was anything in this story easy or straightforward?

yanafava - Thank you! I hope you like dthis update :)

jaceni - Thank you! I think Draco is also pretty mad at himself. Did this chapter redeem him a bit?

nitesfool  - Wow! Thank you! Two oer three times a day? *whispers* I usually update Friday evenings or Saturdays, because RL has me in its clutches during the rest of the week... I liked the earring scene, too. I actually started with that one, working backward.

mrequecky - Thank you! Hope you liked this one!

Dreamweaver  - Wow, that is one awesome review! Thank you so much! I hope Draco could make it up to you a bit by rushing to Hermione's rescue?

Now, please someone tell me that I am not talking into empty cyber space here? Pretty please?
