Hi, me again.Squick--- don't do the curses that give you the runs please :/, you should've stuck with the plan of having her make it. No offense but this gave me an icky-sicky feeling when I think about Hermione, how do I make it go away?
Sorry but ... gross gross gross! I feel a bit icky when I think about Hermione and I think that these stories at least some should have happy endings and nix on the eaking and (ick) worse.
Wow. Good story. I was begging silently for some more Hermione stories, and this one takes the cake as my favorite. Even though you only have limited experience with the character, you really captured Hermione well.
Again, nice work.
That was excellent. I think that was a good representation of the character. I must admit, it would have been nice to know what year she was in, but that lack of specifics on that was indeed and excellent choice on your part. The descriptions were excellent as well. I felt really bad for her at the end, though. I almost wish she had made it.
All in all, an excellent story.
Author's Response: Thanks a bunch for the review. Glad you thought I did well with Hermione's character. I was worried I'd never get it right. I debated for a long time whether to specify the year. I think it can help make a fic more real if you reference things that actually happened in the source material. I thought it would be better to let people pick their favorite Hermione, in the end though. I thought about having her make it, too. "Barely made it" is one of my favorite scenarios, but I've had the idea of the Grand Staircase shifting at the worst time floating around in my head for a while. I couldn't pass up the opportunity :P.
Agreed this is very good, I love the attention to detail. Any futures in mind in the HP vein?
Author's Response: Thank you. I've always thought attention to detail was one of the things I could do well in my writing. As for futures, if you mean future stories I hadn't planned on doing any more HP stories. Not that I don't want to. I really enjoyed writing this one, and there are a lot of possibilities in the universe I wouldn't mind exploring... Miscast spells, poorly constructed potions, or diarrhea curses to name a few. But, I'm just not too familiar with the universe. I'm afraid I couldn't do it justice in anything more complex that something like this story...
Author's Response: Thanks, it felt good to finally write a new fic. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
