Summary: Hermione wanted to believe.
Hermione scoffed at magic as a child, but she secretly longed to believe. Her reading and intelligence gave her science and the truth of slight-of-hand, but a very secret part of her heart ached to see a pumpkin transformed into a coach.
Even when her Hogwarts letter arrived by shooting down the chimney to land on her breakfast plate, she refused to believe. With enough velocity and the right angle, surely you could cause an envelope to land where you wished.
But, when Hermione held her wand and magic lit the air around her, she could finally believe.
