Very interesting so far! I'm curious to see where this is going to go from here. Hermione's grief is excellently written and I like the idea of her getting together with Xeno eventually. He'd definitely understand her pain and I'd love to see his character and actions expanded from what was shown in the books/movies. Good luck with your writing.
Author's Response: Almatari, thank you so much for reading and for leaving the lovely feedback--truly appreciate it! I'm so glad that Xeno and Hermione are coming across as intended, and absolutely agree with you--he'd definitely understand her pain; yes, I'd like to explore his character and actions more, as we were only given a glimpse of him in very specific circumstances--thank you so much, again, for your kind words of encouragement!
