There should have been more romance and more sex!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Sorry to have disappointed you. This was not a PWP, and going from the end of the last one, this one was going to be more courtship. Romance can be present without sex.
Very nice. I noticed a really interesting side effect with the lotion... (tee hee) Loved it. I enjoyed reading this story very much! Glad to see you have continued writing HG/LM stories... You do them quite well!
Author's Response: Thanks, Shiloh. This was a fun story for me to write. Ah, that lotion...Lucius could give me some any time *drool* I know. I'm pitiful LOL The next installment will be more Draco, but obviously, Lucius and Hermione will have to have their places. After that one, I think I'll tackle a future fic I've had bouncing around. :)
And I assure you, Lucius has not coerced me or used any sort of potion on me.” She still didn’t know the exact nature of the lotion he had given her, but she was reasonably certain it had no mind-altering properties.
On the ConTraRY....~
This is one of the rare fics where I suppose Harry is sensible. In my opinion, it would have been better for Hermione to keep her resolve and stay the determined and stubborn person she is (supposed) to be. Despite being the ultimate SxGod, I must say that he does know how to be a real bitch! I guess the whole manipulation and "achieve our ends" are inherent Slytherin qualities eh? You’re…Slytherin!”...very true Harry and how observant of him to state this, I'm suprised that even Hermione overlooked that fact!
Oh What Drama...XD
I honestly cannot wait for the end of this trilogy! I would prefer it if Hermione is a little less....naive (?) and to see her being more mature in the continuation of this fic. Perhaps she would truly learn about Lucius' nature and start to play her own game for once. But a trilogy would not suffice for all that now would it? hhahhhaa
Al;right then, update real soon!
p.s. it would be nice to see how Dracon is doing. Also if possible please could you include a little interaction between characters involved and Severus (it would be nice for him to make another appearance!), he is officially my favourite male Harry Pottercharacter. Lucius may be a sexGod but nothing beats my Severus!
Author's Response: Thanks, shameful. :) Harry did make a good point, but Hermione has been a little Slytherin, too. I don't think of her as being as much naive, but realizing that she doesn't really have much of choice, not that it's a bad choice. After all, she was having an affair with him while married to Draco. *wink*...As for Snape, he will feature a bit more prominently in the next installment. Unfortunately, that one will have less Lucius and Hermione interacting with each other because it's supposed to be focused on Draco, but I expect it will have more scenes where Draco is talked about than this one had where Hermione was talked about and not present (which I think was one)...I really loved playing with Lucius in this one because he is not romantic just to be romantic and win her heart.
NO YOU CANT JUST END IT HERE!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE THIS STORY WRITE MORE!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Citten, I'm glad you loved the story. I will definitely be writing more as this storyline is not complete, just that chapter of it. :)
I'm glad the next installment won't be for a couple of months... as I'm not sure how much access I will have to a computer for the next 3 and bit months! *shakes head*
I'm really looking forward to it though! Good luck with writing it, and well done with this one!
Author's Response: Thanks a bunch, JTBJAB. I'm glad my need to finish other work coincides with your travel. :) I need to get home and take stock of my various projects again and see where it's all going and when I look like I'll be doing what. I don't want to make people wait as long as I did last time, I thought it was too long and longer than I had anticipated, but my darn muses had a bout of ADD.
Sorry it took me this long to read and review. Life has been demanding lately... (yes I do feel I have to say that because I did insist on the story to be finished).
I love it. You manage to tell the story from Hermione's PoV without leaving me out of Lucius maneuvers to get her back.
I would have wanted to see what they told the Grangers and how they reacted... but it's more morbid curiosity that something the story needed. It is also my curiosity that will beg you to write the last part of the trilogy soon. But take all the time you need to write it, I'm very happy with the end as it is. ;)
Author's Response: Thanks, Maddy. And no worries on RL. We all have that, darn RL LOL. Of course I had to have Lucius's manuevers in there. It was hard for me to get out of his mind most times. It's just so much fun watching him be devious and I so want to share that thought process...As for the Grangers, there may be reference to that in the next one. I haven't decided. That scene really didn't enhance the plot here, but if I can find a good way to work it in, I'll be sure to do it. :)
I have no more to say then. I LOVE IT! Can't wait till the third part of this story is out. :]
Author's Response: Thanks a million. I have other projects going on, but I'm still planning the third installment in the back of my mind. :D
I have no more to say then. I LOVE IT! Can't wait till the third part of this story is out. :]
Author's Response: Thanks, Love. I'm glad that so many have enjoyed this story. It really warms my heart and spurs the muses on to write more. :) Which I hope to do soon.
OH.......wait there has to be more! PLEASE!!! I dont know that I can wait for the third installment. This is very good!! THANKS so much!
Author's Response: Thanks, Nathair. Glad you enjoyed it, but I am quite sorry to report that there will be a wait for the next one. If you check my profile, I have my LJ listed and I do post fic updates on progress there. Generally once a week.
Loved this chapter! Hermione decided to stay with Lucius after all. And I loved Harry's reaction about Lucius being the daddy. Looking forward to the next installment!
Author's Response: Thanks, kanoni. Yup, Hermione couldn't deny how she felt and the facts of the situation she was in. Harry...what can I say? He cracks me up. LOL I'll begin working on the next one hopefully some time in June. :)
Cunning Lucius! I am enjoying this very much thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks, Nathair. I like having Lucius cunning and devious, that's what makes him os much fun. :)
She gave in but changed her mind? Is Hermione finally going mental? aha, more indeed should be coming out. I don't know why but it makes me feel awkward to read a sex scene while Hermione is pregnant and is not far along. Isn't it kind of hard to do? Or did I miss a part that says that her tummy is invisible. Sorry if it sounds like sarcasm.
Author's Response: Thanks, LTL. Hermione's still a tad confused. A part of her has a hard time believing that he's really being nice and has been somewhat influenced by Harry's prejudices...As for the sex, she was sitting on top of him. Hope that helps.
This chapter was really good! Hermione finally made her mind up about going back to Lucius. Is the baby going to be born in the next series? Looking forward to reading the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks, kanoni. Hermione just needed some time to sort through the turmoil. As for what happens next, I don't want to spoil it. :)
Only one more chapter left! *whimpers* Ah well, I look forward to reading the it! (Hopefully soon! *Smirk*)
Author's Response: Thanks, JTBJAB. I know it's kind of sad knowing there's one chapter coming, but it will be up soon. And then y'all can start pestering me about the sequel. LOL
i cant believe that there is only one more chapter left! its not enough you have to write more please!!!! please dont take too long to get out the next chapter.....i do hope you write about the birth of the baby and make it really long!
Author's Response: Thanks, Citten. The next chapter is in the queue, so it should be up soon. I know, one chapter can seem so short, but in the near future will be the final part to the trilogy, which will hopefully tie up loose ends and leave a sense of closure.
Lucius has put the whammy on Hermione!
Will Severus make another appearance?
Author's Response: Thanks, weasel. You'll have to keep reading. :)
okay i don't think i can wait a couple of days.....ITS TOO LONG!!!
i love this story by the way and it updates better than fictionalley.
and i can review it here!
Author's Response: Thanks, Citten. I have submitted the next chapter and will submit 6 once 5 is up. I'm glad you are enjoying it. :)
Once I read the first part of this sequel it caught me off guard of how Lucius could just do this to her. But now after reading more and more I realized Lucius acts as if he really does love her. I don't think it is true since Lucius grew up around the type of society that pressured rich young men to take a woman as the same status without the share of real love. Oce part I like is that you make Hermione seem very like a Miss Independent, some stories make Hermione be a hopeless woman but you brought out the right perspective. As for Ginny I always thought when she will have children she would act as the same way in your story. You make this story breath taking, beautiful, funny, and absoultely addicting!
Keep up the good job and bring more chapters for me to enjoy! And as well for the others -coughs- :)
Author's Response: LoveTheLife, thank you fora truly wonderful review. I am glad you that you like my characterization. I figured that Ginny would act a fair bit like her mother, so that's where some of her attitude/behavior comes from. And Hermione definitely had to have some independence. I can't see her easily backing down. For Lucius, I think that he is finally learning about some emotions that he hasn't had much experience with, which is good for him. :) More will be submitted very soon. :)
Love this chapter! Lucius really knows how to lay it on thick! He needs her and is trying to convince her to go with him to France. Looking forward to reading the next chapter!
Author's Response: Lucius really is working hard to win her over, isn't he? Hopefully his hard work will pay off.
What sort of gossip is going on in the Wizarding World?
First a fertility potion, now a lust lotion -- will Hermione find out how Lucius has dosed her? Will she turn this to her advantage? Will she turn Lucius into toast? (Toasty Movie!Lucius ... yummy!)
Author's Response: 'Toasty Lucius' LOL I loved that one. He's better hope that she doesn't learn everything he's been up to, or it's at a point where she doesn't care. This could really burn him...As to the gossip, stay tuned for more on that. :)
and............................. i need more!! I am thoroughly addicted. I am still looking for that lotion too!! ahahah. devious Lucius. help her with her house elf liberation and all. I love it!! I can not wait for more!
Author's Response: LOL Thanks Nathair. Arean't we all looking for that lotion? LOL Don't you just love Devious Lucius? He's my favorite. More will be coming in a few days. :)
Oh man! Hermione! Why did you give in so easily!?!? *Sigh* I can't wait till your next chapter... I need to know what happens next! *Grin*
Author's Response: Easily? She's a horny pregnant woman have amazing sex dreams, what else did you expect? LOL Besides, this is incredibly manly and sexy Lucius. *drool* The next chapter will be coming soon. :)
I find Lucius' perspective very intriguing in this piece. He values Hermione and recognizes her stellar qualities, but it seems to me that he sees her as an ally more than an individual. It's about what she can do for him rather than enjoying the person she is... all the while not understanding that by doing the latter he ensures the former. I'll look forward to where you take this.
Author's Response: Unfortunately, in this one we don't spend a lot of time in Lucius' head, so it's hard to tell exactly what he is thinking. I think that you have made some very astute observations. Perhaps he will do the same and realize he might be going about this the wrong way. LOL Thanks for reading and reviewing.
Yea, Snape! I like watching his doubts played against Lucius' confidence.
Author's Response: I loved that interchange. Snape sees Hermione as a little know it all, Lucius obviously sees something more :) I have to have my little bit of Snape in there. ;)
Indeed, very devious Lucius. Wow!! Poor Hermione, struggling with all her hormones in more ways than one and Bad Sevie, making lotions like that. Well on second hand scratch that - maybe I need one of those :)
Author's Response: Don't we all need a lotion like that? LOL Poor Hermione is having her weakness exploited. This is definitely not something she needed at this time.
