Hermione Granger used to be in favor of inter-house activities. She used to love connecting to the other students of her year. Until the worst luck in the world decided she had to spend the Christmas holidays of her sixth year at Malfoy Manor. Of all places. Nothing good can come from it, but she is determined not to let the experience break her down. She'll bear everything with such dignity and grace that Draco Malfoy's already pale appearance will become even paler in comparison.
