Hi! I'm Emanuela, I'm 24 years old and I'm Italian. Actually, I'm a civil engineering student at Polytechnic of Milan, who is fighting to pass the last 4 exams and catch her degree. Of course, not an easy task... Apart from that, I think there aren't many things you'd like to know about me. I love travelling and I'm luck enough to have already seen a not-big-enough part of our beautiful world. I love photography and visual arts in general: I can spend weeks between museums, exhibits and everything that catches my attention. Another big passion of mine is music: classical, rock, epil methal... anything apart from house, techno and stuff similar. And I honestly think that I can't live without music... and I miss it terribly when I am not able to listen to it. Of coourse, I love writing, reading and even beta-editing if I can be useful for the author. Of course, since my evident lack of English skills, I generally help in the plot and background settings (but in Italian, I would be your nightmare about grammar, ortography and syntax) but I still love doing it. I think I'm open minded enough to read almost anything, it's enought that it is well written. As writer, I started as and original writer and I think that I'm still better at doing it. Lately, I started to write CH and HP fanfictions, even if the second one is keeping more busy at the moment, and I'm trying to translate my efforts into English with the help of Kagome and my awesom beta... you'll never know, maybe I can publish it sometimes ^_-. Last, two are the HB books that I love most: GoF and HBP... even if even PoA is a special one. Of course, there are a couple of JKR's choices I complain about, but still I think that the originaly and freshness of the story is still touchable, and that's the important thing.

This one-shot is so full of sadness and hope that makes me want to cry and smile together. The Blaise you pictured here is a twisted character, full of love for Hermione and hatred for the rest of the world, that make them hide in that room.
I loved your descriptions, your way of create a whole world in a single room and, most of all, your way of making human your characters. As usual, I can go on for hours, praising your way of writing, so I stop here.
I add just a couple of comments, related to specific sentences:
That thought alone reminds him that he can never escape the world outside of this room.
/* A world outside the room? Does it mean that there is another world inside the room? Nice imagine, I think it give a good view of Blaise’s point of view. So, he appears as a “splitted” man, divided by night and day, good and evil, love and hate. And my choice of placing before the night and then the day isn’t casual at all */
For it is here in the darkness, when hope seems so elusive and the future so bleak, that he will find strength to meet his fate.
/* I definitely ADORE this sentence. Maybe more than the description you worked so much on. But, honestly, there is music, feelings and humanity in this few words. Great job! */
When Hermione finally wakes, Blaise is already fitting his mask on. He spares her a momentary glance through his guise, wondering when the day became as distorted as the night, before he Apparates away.
Being completely honest, I didn’t like this conclusion much… I would have stopped it at the sentence before. You know, you created another dimension here and making it crashing against the real world in that way was a bit crude, and it doesn’t show the real importance of this conflict. Especially because you make suddenly Hermione act, but in a strange way and suddenly she didn’t seem as real as while she was sleeping.
