Story:Happy New Year, Hermione Granger Chapter: Happy New Year, Hermione Granger

Hey Emily,

 

It's me again! So this story I'm very curious about. It looks like it's a Dramione, which I don't usually read because they're not really my favourite pairing, but then it also looks really interesting so I feel like I'm gonna end up liking this a lot anyway. I guess we'll see. Let's get to the reading part.

 

I really loved it! It was just a really cute story. I like that everyone is so happy and that they're together and celebrating a new year. And I mean when you've been through a war like they have, I guess every new year you get must feel like a blessing. And I'm not surprised Luna took it far with the decorations. I can definitely imagine her house being one you'd recognize from a distance :P I also found it very believable that she'd invite Draco to her party. Luna doesn't seem like the sort of person to hold grudges, so I can imagine her putting the past in the past and inviting Draco to her party.

 

I didn't for a minute think you'd do this, but I still have to say that I'm really happy you didn't make Ron a jerk for Dramione to happen. I don't like those stories. It's very possible for Dramione to happen without Ron ever being a jerk. Ron and Hermione are very different, so I feel like it wouldn't be very difficult to imagine that they'd just grow apart or eventually discover that they don't work together. But I'm getting way off-track here. I'm just happy to see a good Ron, and I thought the dialogue between him and Hermione was very well-written. It really felt like the two characters I fell in love with in the books.

 

So this was a little bit of surprise to me, but I actually really loved Draco and Hermione together. For the first time, I felt like I could finally understand a little bit what this ship was all about, because yeah, they do seem to fit each other well. I like that Hermione is honest and doesn't take anyone's crap, and I feel like Draco would need someone like that - someone that can stand up to him and challenge his views, and Hermione can certainly do that. So yeah, I actually really liked them together. I mean I'm not a Dramione shipper yet, but I feel like I can definitely understand the love for the pairing a lot better now.

 

Amazing job! I really liked it! Thanks for sharing!

 

- Lotte

How am I lucky enough to have you as a friend? You are so sweet! I appreciate these reviews so much; I can't even explain it!

I'm so happy you liked a Dramione! I feel so successful, haha. I really loved using Luna as a catalyst to push along some healing in this story. I don't know what she went through at Malfoy Manor in DH, but I want to someday explore writing a story about that and maybe about Draco not being so terrible to her. And yes, I agree about the !meanRon stories! They can be really tired. Bleh. So I've mostly avoided them throughout my writing career. (Mostly, haha. There were times when I was younger...)

Ahhhh! You're closer to understanding Dramione!! I am so honored! I'm so happy you enjoyed this. I've always been pretty happy with this story, so I'm glad that it came across well to someone outside of this particularly unpopular OTP.

Thank you for all your compliments and kind words. You're the best.

Emily

Hello hello, I'm here to sprinkle a little love onto your story; Valentine's Day was just this past month, don't you know? ♥

What a cute one-shot! It was so nice to see everyone relaxed and happy; I thought it was smart that this took place a few years after the war, giving everyone time to be settled in their new relationships. I'm not at all surprised that Harry and Ginny are already married, and Luna and Rolf just started dating. A New Year's party is the perfect excuse to catch up on everyone, and I'm glad Hermione left -- and that Draco came! And that Luna stuck up for him for being at the party.

I also really love that Draco plays piano; seems fitting.  And the moment in that room together was so sweet -- and the kiss! What a great, fluffy story without too much angst or drama; just enough to put a smile on my face. 

Great job! ♥
