She did not make any mistake. I'm proud of Ginny for walking away.
Author's Response: I'm happy you think of it that way. ^^

*cries* This is such a sweet story. I mean, you could like totally get the idea of what happened when they were in Hogwarts with just a few sentences x3 I guess good things really do come in smaller packages =D

I liked it! Determined and heartbroken Ginny and seemingly cold Draco always make a good plot!

As improbable as it is for Pansy to die in such suspicious circumstances so soon after Ginny and Draco's meeting, I don't seem to mind too much. :) It probably has quite a bit to do with the cute kids ;p Holly's 'forgiveness' of Draco and so on.
Author's Response: The kids certainly help! *sweeps deus ex machina under the rug*

Another wonderful one-shot. I like your portrayal of all the characters. I can never quite imagine Ginny willingly becoming a mistress and her convictions are keenly apparent in this story. It's almost amusing to see how Draco does not understand where she's coming from. He's had such a different upbringing, that extra-marital relations seem the norm.
I hope that, for the childrens' sake at the least, something can be sorted out between Draco and Ginny.
Author's Response: I wouldn't say that Draco thinks extra-marital relationships are normal. He's very like Mr. Rochester in that he thinks he deserves someone better, someone that he actually loves, rather than being cursed with the wife he has. He has a hard time seeing what is wrong with seeking happiness, and he knows he would not be hurting Pansy by being with someone else because she cares about as much for him as he does for her. But Ginny is like Jane Eyre in that, even though she loves Draco, she won't give up on her morals like that. You're right that Draco doesn't understand her point of view, but that's mostly because he's lived a miserable, unhappy life for so long. And, because he was raised a spoiled rich kid, he thinks he can get what he wants.
This reply is waaaay late. I hope you forgive me. ^^;

Very well written. I especially like how you wove the poem into the story, so that it becomes part of the narrative. Draco is a heartless man to leave Ginny and their daughter to marry Pansy.
I like how you gradually introduce what is happening; firstly with Ginny's tears, then news of the impending wedding and then the fact that Ginny is pregnant. Slowly but surely the whole picture comes together. (Now I'm gonna run off to read the next part..)
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! n_n

ooh! I would make him pay! How could he think that she would take him back after everything that he put her through? He's only coming back to her because his wife died. He didn't even make the choice on his own! What a coward he is!!!!
But it's really a great story. Although, I think that Ginny should be skinny, and make him work for her forgiveness, it's the least that she could do to have him make amends!
Author's Response: Wow! I never thought of it that way (I'm too much of a sucker for happy endings and that "one true love" deal)! In Forgiveness, Ginny is so desperate to have him back that she doesn't care what he's done to her. Later on in life she is definitely going to make him pay, and he will be willing to make it up to her and Holly so long as she will keep him. And Ginny was the one who said she wouldn't take him while he was married. She could have solved everything earlier with a little adultery but she's too noble. ;)

That was sad... but very good. I'm glad she's so strong. It's a good model for single pregnant women everywhere.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! Her life is tough for her, obviously, but I think she stays strong throughout Mistakes and Forgiveness too.

This series was good. I didn't like the parts where Ginny called herself fat, but that's just me. It was good and I liked it. :)
Author's Response: Thank you for your review! Ginny didn't like gaining the weight either but the pregnancy and stress just wasn't good for her. ;)

Oh....that was deep..really deep..i am trying hard to to cry..the cry baby that i am...sheesh...beautiful story..you wrote it wonderfully...caught the emotions at the write time...well crafted...the characterizations of each character was great...and Pansy's death..*snort*..i couldn't stop laughing at that...heheheh...loved this story..the whole trilogy..it was perfect!! Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad you enjoyed the trilogy!
on Nov 16, 2006 06:45 pm
Hmmmm I wish you mentioned exactly why Draco left, maybe gave more details to that entire situation, but it was still a good story, I can't imagine Ginny as fat, just a bit plump. I can however imagine her insisting the engagement not be announced until she's lost weight.
Author's Response: This is the third part to a trilogy of one shots. The first and second stories (Tears and Forgiveness) definitely say why Draco left. And I can definitely see Ginny insisting that too. ;)
Author's Response: Sorry, I meant Tears and Mistakes as the first two stories to the trilogy.

OK! This is going to have a happy ending right? You know Holly & Charlotte living together with Ginny & Draco, maybe another child on the way!! you know white pickett fence around the manor, all that stuff Right!! Killing off Pansy Lucius & Narcissa, or maybe the 4 of them disapearing I dont know just happy!! And maybe more than only one more. How about it!!!
Author's Response: *Innocently puzzled* Hm... I don't know. I haven't thought about it before... Haha, we'll just have to see.

This is an interesting way to do this, a triology of one shots. I haven't ever seen that before. That's probably because I read very few one shots. They lack plot, and it takes an enourmous amount of talent to engage an audience so quickly. But, this does that. It does have some serious characterization issues. I don't think either Draco or Ginny make much sense, as of HBP, though with enough background, I'm sure they could. The issue is that a one shot doesn't give you that opportunity, but since this is a triology, I look for more thought through characters.
Author's Response: Thank you for your input. These oneshots are not HBP compliant and I knew I was forgetting something. Even in my own head, there is no way I could have worked this out if they were. The original story was meant to be vague so Mistakes and the third part turned out to be more developed. Opinions are always helpful and I will take what you've said to mind!
