Anna, I must confess that this was one of the fics that I skipped during H/D Hols last year, because the summary seemed really complicate and the idea of time travelling didn't really appeal to me. Still, a week or so ago I read Bond, and even though I didn't comment on it (I just felt... I dunno, intimidated by the huge amount of comments that were already written and felt like nothing that I could write would be interesting to you in anyway), it got me deeply engaged for several days. I just loved the story, and it is a shame I hadn't read it before, but oh well, you posted it during a time I as not active in fandom.

In any case, I remembered reading your name in the table of Reveals here in H/D Holdays and came back to check what you had written, and then decided to give Chrononauts a chance. And I am SO glad that I did! I was deeply confused at first and was somewhat anxious if you were going to be able to wrap up everything and that it would make sense. How silly of me - of course you would. I kept imagining a drawing with the different timelines and how they were different, and where they touched, and that you had all this planned out and that made me calm.

And you really did. I can't say how wonderful this story seems to me right now: how is it possible to be Epilogue compliant and actually have Harry and Draco together in the same universe! Brilliant, wonderful plot and precisely executed. And the one thing that I really really love about your style is that it is so fulfilling, in away that the reader is gifted with things happening just they way you wish they should - of course, if Draco was to travel in time, we would want younger Harry and younger Draco to know they would be together in one possible future. You do just that - it is delicious to read. :)

On a last note - the scene where they are watching their other selves at the train station loosely reminded me of the last scene of Battlestar Gactica, of Head Caprica Six and Head Gaius Baltar talking to each other. Don't know if you seen the series, but if not, it is amazing.

Anyways, that is it. Thank you so much for writing and sharing this.
