Argh... Hermione in an orphanage might be making things easier for them, but I'm sad for Hermione (to become an orphan at 8 years old :-( )
Note: I find it interesting that you chose to manifest the "morning illness" as during pregnancy, to indicate a bond forming... I wonder what a father's reaction would be if his 14 or 15 years old daughter were to start bonding ;-p
I wonder if you will have Hermione test for a vault...
I hope to read more soon!
