I'm 31 and married to a handsome Mountie (named Jay). We have 2 sons and a baby girl -- Scott is 10 and Bennett is 7 and Elizabeth is 5.

As for my participation in the ship/fandom...

I began life as a Canon!Shipper (primarily Harry/Ginny) -- that lasted for about 2 months. After reading 'The Broken Road' I converted to the Darkside and now Harry is my very least favourite character... ;)

I am a Slytherin lover and my second favourite ship is Blaise/Luna (but I like lots of other ships, like Harry/Pansy, Hermione/Cedric for example). Other than Draco - my favourite 'character' is Neville. I'm currently writing a lot of Tracey Davis/Greg Goyle fanfic. Yes yes - I have a thing for strong silent henchmen with hip bumps. ;)

I dabble in lots of fandoms - The Office, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly/Serenity, Entourage, Labyrinth, The Covenant, Doctor Who etc. -- but Draco/Ginny has my heart. ;)

My fic is also archived on LJ at http://community.livejournal.com/an_oubliette - so you can friend there if you want to be a fangirly friend. My personal LJ - jandjsalmon is still sorta fangirly - but it's not just HP. ;)

Choosing Evil by Mynuet    (Reviews - 64)

Why was Ginny Weasley standing in a circle of robed and cloaked figures, swathed in black except for her uncovered left arm? Why was the littlest member of a family ruled by a muggle-obsessed patriarch awaiting being branded with the Dark Mark?

It was really good. I usually never go for the Ginny-gone-bad fic... but this one, she really isn't 'going bad' is she? I liked it. Different, but really really interesting! ;) Well done! ;)

Oh Myn. I decided to reread my favourite story tonight, and I'm glad I did. Every time I read I get something new out of it. Every time I read it I am amazed at the brilliancy of it. This time was no exception. In over a year of fanfic reading and reviewing and reccing... this is still my very favourite story. YAY for you! ;)

Be of Good Cheer by Fearthainn    (Reviews - 37)

Wherein Ginny sings, ears are noticed, Draco takes his father's advice, and there is no gratuitous mistletoe.

I loved this. I have read it often, and though I have never reviewed before... I'm glad I get to praise you today.

Things I especially liked: There is SO much... but I would have to say my favourite thing is the clever banter between the two... my favourite sequence:

"I wanted to hit him," she admitted.
"We can always go back," Draco said graciously...

It was imaginative and fun, and yet another reason why I love all of your stories Fear! YOU ROCK! ;)

Here Now by smprsgrrl    (Reviews - 20)

They both had their reasons in the beginning of it, but as their relationship changed, so did those reasons. Draco and Ginny focus on the here and now.

The Sneaky Slytherin and the Redhead's Revenge by Yazethet    (Reviews - 371)

*COMPLETE* Blackmail, intrigue, lust and yes, snogging. He thought he detested her, she knows she loathes him. Can Draco win Ginny over before she tries to completely humiliate him in front of the entire school?

*cackles madly*

I've had this rec'd to me about a billion times and I've yet to read it. It looks hillarious. YAY!

AGHGH! Evil Ginny -- to do that to my poor Draco... but yeah -- it was a fabulous chapter. I adore the less-cranky-at-Ginny Snape. ;)

LOL!

“So, is this person my type?” Blaise was smiling again.

“I don’t know,” Draco said testily. “But I’m apparently not his type either so you two are a probably a perfect match.”


I think I love your Blaise... and I'm A HUGE Het!Blaise fan so you've TOTALLy done your job well.

Draco and the Headhealer... that should be a scene... please let it be a scene! ;)

But yeah -- He thought about sending his father the picture of him kissing Weasley along with a letter asking him whether he thought their children would have red hair or blonde?

- Very nice. Love it so far! ;)

"Hermione had taken the hint not to ask, but gave her a sympathetic look. She was grateful at first but she noticed that Colin had also received a sympathetic look so she decided she wasn't speaking to Hermione for the rest of dinner."

Ginny cracks me up. She is HILLARIOUS!

"He decided that he would take his Headhealer’s advice and accept those feelings."

You know... if there were awards for Best Supporting Character... I'd nominate Draco's Head Healer... Because, damn... SO SO funny!

“I must be insane.”
“You are,” Blaise agreed. “But isn’t that why you’re seeing a Headhealer?”

Again with the Headhealer... I love the headhealer... and the advice from all of Ginny's friends seemingly positive towards Draco. ;)

What a joy! I love the new broom and the eyebrow and the smirk and everything. It's brilliant.

OOOh! I love that you brought up the Washroom with Moaning Myrtle in it and Ginny's apprehension... and then the KISS!! THE KISS!! ;)

Aghg. She's being sweet. I'd be paranoid about the sweetness. I'm glad Colin finally actually just said it -- HE FANCIES YOU! Great Chapter!

Reviewer: jandjsalmon Signed
Date: Aug 10, 2007 Title: Chapter 12: Ginny Schemes

OH NO! I don't care for Ginny here at all.. poor Draco... she's a mean nasty little witch... TOTALLY should have been sorted into Slytherin... but then I suppose they could snog all day in the Common Room and there would be no need to tell the story, eh?

Reviewer: jandjsalmon Signed
Date: Aug 10, 2007 Title: Chapter 13: At the Beach

I'm glad Draco is as cunning and sneeky as she is and knows ALL about her little plan... and YAY for practically nakedness... okay -- they're swimming... but I can get behind any chapter that has Draco with his shirt off - so YAY!

Reviewer: jandjsalmon Signed

Ouch! Okay - so our boy isn't the nicest of wizards... but she's being a BIT melodramatic... isn't she?

THE POEM!!

I love him. Is there a way to make him real so he can come live with me? This was a brilliant chapter and I'm looking forward to seeing what the bracelet has to do with anything... ;)

Reviewer: jandjsalmon Signed
Date: Aug 10, 2007 Title: Chapter 17: The Dream Whisperer

I am shocked and appalled at his underhandedness.... YAY for Draco! ;)

The Lillies --- a bit like slipping her a love potion though, eh? And then peeping in on her dreams? When she finds out he's going to hope he put that charm the Quidditch team uses on their nagers... ;)

And Chastity Charm? I hope Ron's kidding!

Reviewer: jandjsalmon Signed
Date: Aug 10, 2007 Title: Chapter 18: In the Forbidden Forest

YAY! They get to tell the truth to whom I can only assume is Snape. LOL!

But VEERY fascinating chapter. I love the properties of the ingredients blenidng together... I love jealous Ginny (we've already seen lots of jealous Draco) and yeah... two thumbs up! ;)

OOOh she's going to be livid... but YAY for Hermione and her very logical mind - pairing up everyone else... and I loved the Venice thing... and that Oya was already bonded to him too... I love this story... yes yes I do
