I really like this story. Contrasting their current relationship with their beginning is a creative way to introduce us to Draco and Ginny. Empty nest syndrome can play havoc with a couple. I look forward to reading further. Also I like the use of Carroll's list as the chapter titles. Very thought provoking. Thanks for a new favorite.

Author's Response: So glad you are enjoying this! I think there are so many ways we can find things different in our relationships - and the kids leaving home would be quite a shock. I was sad I wasn't seeing a lot of fic dealing with those sorts of issues.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review and I am thrilled you are enjoying this! ~Ves

This is a really, really interesting beginning, and your introduction made it even more intriguing.

My mother once said to me that leaving home is a big deal for kids themselves, but also for parents. When the house is empty save for everyone but those two, it's as if they have to rediscover what it's like to live with one another again, and I wonder if that's what Draco and Ginny will have to go through now.

Admittedly, I'm still young, and I'm not experiencing this myself, but I think that this will definitely be a good take on a more mature Draco/Ginny relationship, and I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with this story.

Author's Response: I'm not near there either, but I have experienced the way a change in who is living in a home can really change the dynamics of those left. Funny how much our personalities are affected by who we are around all the time.

Glad you are enjoying this one so far and thanks for taking time to review! ~Ves

might I reccomend some pharagraphs?

otherwise, it was quite good!

Author's Response: *facepalm* I could see them but obviously no one else could. I have no idea why it ate the breaks for chapter one and two was fine. ARG! THANK YOU!! That is one of my pet peeves - trying to make your readers blind - and I am relived to have it fixed. Glad you enjoyed - despite the assult on your poor eyes! ~Ves

My bad it’s all fixed. Yet another very interesting chapter where you give hints as to what is actually happening with their relationship and yet there is still enough ambiguity that we are left guessing. I like the pace at which you are infolding the events.

Author's Response: *laughs* I am not sure that's so much an authorial device versus Ginny honestly not quite sure what's going on and where they've found themselves.

And yeah - chapter two was uploaded the same way as one but huzzah - this one has paragraphs.

Glad you are enjoying this! We should have weekly updates - just in the editing process on this one. :) ~Ves

“now the ‘rules of cool’ required he say as little as possible to his family members and mumble the few responses he did give” – ah the joys of being a teenager. I loved the interaction between Wynn and Mirabelle (it reminded me a lot of how my own brother acts lol). The story seems very interesting and I like the thought process behind it. I look forward to seeing how you correlate their past events with the present. Great work so far, I look forward to an update :D!

p.s) also the formatting seems to have gone a little a bit awry, it was initially fine in the beginning but something seems to have messed it up. Slightly irrelevant but I thought I’d mention it nonetheless :D!

Author's Response: No, no - THANK YOU for mentioning the formatting. It looked fine in the preview and in the text entry. It drives me batty when authors leave out paragraph breaks.
Glad you enjoyed Wynn and Mirabelle torturing each other the way siblings so love to do. Thanks so much for taking time to review and I am glad it rings true so far! ~Ves
