A big thank you for reading and reviewing! You make me bounce around every time I find a new review in my inbox!
margaritama - Hi love! I am not sure whether this chapter relived the ache any. I think she wanted to reveal herself to him, but unexpected circumstances made her bolt.
Marie – I am so happy that you like the story. Can’t wait to hear what you think about this chapter!
RZZMG – Oh, Blaise was in on the game alright. He just realised that his betrayal was all for nothing as the Voldemort world crumbles around them.Better to get back into his friend’s good graces, who knows what it might be good for. Blaise is a Slytherin that covers all angles. As you can see, things are getting more complicated yet again.
Smurphy – Fate has Draco and Hermione on a very twisted path. She was ready to go back but something unexpected happened.
Insolence - *munches on cookies* Really? Like, really?? I am planning on doing that, too. I’ll just go to a copy shop and have it printed and bound once I am finished posting. Will be nice to have it on my shelf. Hope you liked this chapter J
angeles - YAY! I wonder what you think of this chapter. It is so difficult and complicated for them, now.
Devourer - Everybody is constantly saving their own skin here. Right now, Draco has reached a dead end which he might not be able to get out of. I like your ideas for Marcus!
UnseenLibrarian - Draco was trying his very best to redeem himself, but things are not going well for him at the moment.
SomewhatGlutinous – Thanks for reassuring me! Yes, Draco has been very distracted, which does not help at all, but the main reason for everything falling apart are the actions of the resistance. He simply doesn’t stand a chance with the lack of manpower. Voldemort’s reign was based on the assumption that the wizarding populous would be frightened into submission, too scared to really rebel.
Chocolatedoodle – Well, that would have been an interesting turn of events! But no, Draco needed to rescue her and the manor needed him to rescue her as well! I hope you are having a good Saturday!
Coco - *is tickled pink* Hermione is very, very affected by their relationship. Anybody would be after living with someone for quite some time and sharing such intimacy.
Michelle – Was this a surprise? I love surprising! Hope you liked it!
Dreamweaver - I love knight-in-shining-armour-Draco as well! I must say, I feel for him right now. His life is slipping out of his grasp even more than it already had.
mirrorofrapture - Thank you for making a review-exception for Uncoffined! I must admit that I had to look up ‘hokey’ and I am very glad that you find that the story is not J Hope you liked this one!
Hotbabe – I understand your sentiment. Draco is far from innocent, but he did get drugged and tricked by his so-called friends. Leave it to Slytherins to exploit each and every weakness they can find, be it in friend or foe. He did rescue her without regard as to how that would look to his fellow Death Eaters or that he was in grave danger himself.
swiss miss – And she ran once more. I hope you can forgive me. Please?
