I wanted to say, I really believe your Hermione is the best and realist anyone has ever portrayed. That is a very hard thing to do, any story that has Hermione OOC can easily make me roll my eyes and just drop it, but despite my hatred for the POS epilogue I'm sure what kept me reading was your Hermione. I love Hermione, I love writers who can write Hermione truly as JKR's Hermione, thanks!

It truly breaks my heart that boys are so stupidly blind some times...

I don’t know why we are that way.

Awww.. After reading "Fulfilling obligations" this just breaks my heart.

Glad to know what was on that letter though, I was pretty curious.

Ahhh Harry *shakes him* please show her you deserve her!

Well I'm glad I chose to have a quick look at your other fics before starting the big one.

It might not be super long, but it conveys what it needs to. I do often love to read a one sided fic like this compared to a long novel with a winding story.

I already feel that I'm going to greatly enjoy your writing. I admit I found it as surely many have through recommendation of your longer work, having never really visited much before, but I've recently branched out my sources of reading material in the last month or so..

I've been a Harmony fan almost as long as I've known about fan fiction so I've come across many different styles and stories but this just had a unique feeling I've not encountered before.

So much so that despite the late hour I am about to commit to beginning Fulfilling Obligations because I can go no longer without more of your fine words.

They've always been a refuge for me as I can convey true feeling trough the written word where I would often make a fool of myself by speaking. In fact that description at the beginning almost perfectly summarizes my feelings on the matter.

Anywho, enough of that. Thank you for such a fine way to begin and now onto the real challenge (not staying up too late enthralled by your writing).

Ever seen Smallville? The way that Hermione's letter is written is similar to what Chloe Sullivan writes to Clark Kent in season 2. I'm not bashing you I was just pointing it out.

So simple yet so sweet. I loved it and could picture it so clearly in my mind. Great job!

That was a truly heartfelt, emotional confession from Hermione... which makes it all the more annoying why they aren't together in fulfilling obligations!

GAH. GAH.

So, as you know, I am basically your biggest fan. When I saw Fulfilling Obligations had been updated, I squealed — as per usual — and then figuratively sprinted off to read. I already read the chapter, and I'll review that in a minute, but I wanted to review this first, as I had to read it after that INCREDIBLE chapter.

Where to start? Well, since this is technically in the same universe as FO, I have to admit, I'm impressed at how you write Hermione at different ages. She is always Hermione, but she is Hermione at that age. It's just amazing how you manage to make her grow and change and yet still be her, like a real person. Many authors (even highly skilled ones) are not so good at this. So, going from the most recent chapter of FO, to this story, was a special treat. I got to be reminded of young Hermione, as the Hermione in FO likely was as well, upon finding the letter again.

The language is especially important here, because it tempers Hermione's girlish actions, in a way. They might not be as believable — because it's so easy to forget Hermione is still a young girl, given her intellect — but your wording makes it credible. Even though it's in third person, it sounds like Hermione's point of view, and you can feel her struggling between her analytical, rational side, and then the side of her that is a hopeful, shy, romantic, sixteen year old girl in love with her best friend.

So, I guess this oneshot is a marval of contrasts heightening the tension in which the story of Fulfilling Obligations unfolds: In this world of political turmoil, of life-and-death situations, just after having witnessed incredible magic in the Department of Mysteries, we are reminded that Hermione and Harry are also just teenagers, and in spite of everything they have experienced and will experience, they also have these silly, private, and sad moments.

Also, the whole letter is so in character for Hermione, and so heartbreaking. I actually got teary reading her reading it to him. I also loved that you had it as speech, and didn't just italicize and block the whole thing. It keeps the reader in the moment, going through what Hermione is going through, and really -feeling- what she is feeling. The elevated heart rate, the butterflies, the shyness, the hope, the devastation, the fear... it is all there in the words.

Anyway, now I need to go review Fulfilling Obligations and flail over your amazingness.
