Another excellent chapter. Loved the emotion in this one. Wonder what's going to happen with Draco's hearing? Can't wait to read and find out.

another great story, I was just wondering (hoping) if you are planning on updating "A not so simple kind of life" any time soon?

Author's Response: Thanks! ANSSKOL will be updated very soon. The next chapter is with my beta, so as soon as she's woven her special magic over it I'll post it ;)

*happy sigh* This was so heartbreaking, but the ending more than makes up for it.

Author's Response: Thanks *passes you a tissue* I had to make them happy again *g*

Awwww! I was wondering if you were going to add to this story. I really liked the ending. It was perfect! Well done.

Author's Response: Thank you :) I couldn't help but add a bit to it ;)

This was a wonderful addition to an already amazing story. The fact that Draco was sentenced to Azkaban really adds weight to the D/G relationship in the earlier chapters. Again, this was really great :D!

Author's Response: Thank you so much :) Draco did have to pay for his crimes, and it could have torn them apart.

Author's Response: Thank you *g* Harry had hoped their feelings would have changed, but he was out of luck ;) There will be more of my other fics coming soon :)

Great chapter. Thanks for not leaving it. All of this was wonderfully written and plotted out. So glad to see that he payed for his crimes but was released. I love that you gave them the intimate wedding as opposed to the huge one although it promises to be funny with Rons reaction to it. I like how Harry appears to be a psuedo-friend to Draco or is it just for Ginny? Awaiting more from you on Breaking the Rules. Post more of anything soon.

Author's Response: Thank you so much :) The wedding was rather rushed, so a small, intimate affair was in order and besides Draco doesn't have all that many friends left. Ron would have been beside himself! Harry tolerates Draco for Ginny's sake and nothing more. I have a chapter of Breaking the Rules almost ready to post ;)

Yay, happy ending. Or possibly not, depending on what happens with the court. Hmmm, do I smell sequel?

Author's Response: Possibly... I rather like the way I finished it (leaving it to the imagination a bit), but it's still open enough if I get the urge ;)

Wow, I’m annoyed. I guess I thought there would be an email sent out by the website when you updated a chapter. Here I was, waiting and waiting, twiddling my thumbs, wanting so much to read what happens next…I finally decided just to check the website, and there it is: part two.
Well, anyways, on to the review, the part you care about. :)
“she was left alone with her mother, who was looking at her like she no longer knew who she was.” I really liked that line. I think it is a perfect reaction for Molly without her having to say a word. You keep the pace fast, so unlike myself, but I LIKE it. It’s just like pow-pow-pow. It keeps the reader enthralled.
The whole getting into the tent scene, when Ginny was trying to think of a way in, I was imagining the scene from the Disney movie Pocahontas, when John Smith was tethered inside and she needed to go see him. *is a Disney fanatic, pay me no mind*
The Miniature Canary Cream idea was good. Good reverence to the book. I liked Draco’s first startled response to her suddenly appearing. It was so sad to read, he acted battered. :(
"I don't understand how or why or even when it happened, but it's true."
“I don’t know when, I don’t know how, but I know something’s starting right now. Watch and you’ll see, someday I’ll be, part of your world.” *Disney-freak…ignore me. :)*
I just love your wording. “Mercurial” “earnest” “reverence” “trepidation”…these are all words I know but never think to use. It just shows what an awesome writer you are. :D “extremities” I haven’t used that word in a while. “Askew” and “cantankerous” are my current favorite words. Right now I feel the need to use the word “miasma.” Is that odd?
The whole kissing scene was just stupendous. So well written, so emotional and vivid, it makes every fangirl out there DIE for a guy to kiss her like that.
Draco’s mental state? Suicide? Goodness, I love the angst. Sounds like something I would write, only you do it better, because you rock. :)
Surely though Harry realizes that if he lets Ginny stay with Draco…alone…and removes the guard at the door so there would be no intimidating presence/someone to overhear, that Ginny and Draco wouldn’t behave…right? If he thinks Draco raped her AND has nothing to loose, wouldn’t he worry? If he thinks they copulated willingly but Draco has nothing to loose, wouldn’t he be worried? Maybe Harry is being more accepting than I give him credit... >_>;
I like the “noble” talk they started their conversation out with. Cute. :)
HAHAHA! You said “brassiere” god I’m so immature. But I haven’t heard that in a while. Proper names, gee-wiz.
Wow, that scene was just, beautiful. Not dirty in any way. How can you use words like “cock” and “pussy” and not sound ridiculous? I always sound ridiculous…oh, that’s right, YOU’RE AMAZING! XD
Oh-ho-ho, Harry did know. (I made a rhyme) aw, I’m happy to see that Harry thinks they “belonged together” because, he is right, they do!
Aww, I would have liked to see the fighting, but it’s all good, Draco and Ginny time is well worth it.
So that’s it? It’s done? If it is it was SO CUTE!
Amazing amazing amazing.

Author's Response: Wow! I don't think I've ever had such a long review! Firstly, thank you so much :) I'm not sure what happened with the notifications, but I did notice that it didn't make the RSS feed on livejournal either :(

This was quite a different style to what I normally adopt, so I very happy to hear it was fast paced (usually I insert every tiny little detail, because I just have to know that stuff).

I never realized it was comparative to Pocahontas, probably because I can honestly say I've never seen more than the first half hour of the movie (must watch that one all the way through now).

I'm so glad Draco's state of mind came across. Sometimes you're just not sure if you've nailed the emotions so they're clear to the reader.

My husband calls me a walking thesaurus ;) I love playing with words, and it's something that just comes naturally after enough practice. Actually, I rather like "miasma" *g* It's really different!

Thank you so much for the compliment about the kissing scene. I always wibble over scenes like that, because there are so many writers out there who can describe the perfect kiss in just a couple of words.

Now to Harry… He does realize that Draco and Ginny won't behave themselves, but he also feels there's more to be gained by leaving them be, than insisting they're kept apart. He feels that there is a genuine connection between them; not that he likes it or agrees with it, but he knows it's there and undeniable.

I don't know why I used "brassiere", because it's not usually a term of choice. In this instance, it just seemed to work better than the alternatives. Oh my! I just realized I did use the word "pussy" *blushes* It's not usually the way I describe that part of the body, because when I hear it I'm often caught between giggling and cringing ;) "Cock" is a word I use often in smut, because sometimes it's just better to leave it simple and that leaves no question about the part of the body I'm referring to. The trick to writing smut is to concentrate more on what the participants are feeling rather than their actions (Mynuet gave me that tip ages ago and she is among the best *wink*).

I did consider including some fighting scenes, but then I would have had to slip Draco and/or Ginny into them and I just couldn't bring myself to put them in that sort of danger.

It is done! I rather like it how I left it, so there won't be anymore unless someone requests a certain scene the next time I do a Timestamp Meme on livejournal :)

Thank you so much for your words of praise and for taking the time to leave such a brilliant review!
