Summary: Hermione’s writing letters to her future boyfriend.

Notes: There's something incredibly awkward and sweet and real about this story. Hermione has a stutter and Draco is utterly ordinary (no sex god, he), but together, they're something more. These two could be kids you went to school with or neighbors enacting a floundering romance or two people reconnecting at a reunion, that's how realistically derryere portrays them.

Add to that an incredibly creative format (it's all composed as letters to an imaginary, future boyfriend "Hank") and images, it's a wonderful read. It's achingly reminiscent of first love, sweet but not fluff, funny but in a way someone you know is funny instead of sizzling one-liners, and romantic without being world-endingangstylove.

It's not the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters or heart-wrenching soaps. It's something better.

I agree this story is one of the best. Very natural characters.

Yes, it is, isn't it? This is one of those gems I'm hoping this comm will remind fandom of. :)

OH MY GOD THIS AUTHOR THIS STORY are just incredible. I love and read many different types of stories in fandom, but this is easily one of my absolute favourites.

I wish everyone loved it, but I get that tastes differ (and that's a legit thing), but I hope that the people this sort of story works for meet up with it, b/c it is definitely a great feeling to be one of those people and to sit down and take in and experience Draco and Hermione in the way they are and act and feel and everything in this story.

So what I'm saying is I guess it's okay or something, whatever. ;)

it seems like a bad news that the link do not work (or, yep, maybe it works but not for me – I'm not a member of 'dmhgficexchange" community).
