I enjoyed this. The twist was completely unexpected, and Ginny's reaction to Ron was perfect. A pleasure to read.

The Vexing Hex by Elia Sheldon    (Reviews - 16)

The more he saw her, the more he felt compelled to say something, anything, to get her attention. Draco wasn't used to feeling that way about anyone, not even Pansy, his supposed girlfriend.

Beginning and End by Mynuet    (Reviews - 51)

When had it started? While there was a definite incident that could be pointed to as the start of it all, there were roots that trailed backwards, tangled and building up to where finally something was visible. A girl who felt herself to be tainted started drawing in on herself, and no one, not even her brothers, seemed to notice. A boy, who made sure no one noticed that he watched her, wondered about what was going on behind the deliberate blankness of her eyes.

This story has such a cathartic, explosive feel to it. The tension builds up almost unbearably, especially through the bridge in the common room, for that last final release. Thanks for this.

Oh, good grief. Since this hasn't been updated since 2004, I assume the consummation will be left up to our imaginations. I only hope after all that excitement there was a tryst planned for behind that portrait. All that enchanted chocolate wasted!

A Sleeping Dragon Must Not Be Tickled by Dutchess LC    (Reviews - 13)

Whats up with Draco? And why can't Ginny finish her potions essay? And why DOES wolfsbane give pregnant dungbeetles the runs? Simple; Draco's on a bet, and Ginny needs some testosterone. DG - Jealous girls and evil staircases!

The Lush Life by Vesanmyn    (Reviews - 657)

A Vesica/Mynuet Collaboration. If Ginny had even the slightest inkling of what the day would bring, she probably would have called in sick. A disastrous press conference proved to be no match for the spin doctoring talents of Lush's chief and Ginny finds herself catapulted from being a lowly intern to the very eye of the storm, living a double life as a careerwitch and glamorous front woman for a racy new line. Throw in a few A-list events, a few dozen crises, an endless promotional tour with her new co-worker and the last person she wanted to spend time with, and a mystery waiting back home that neither of them may be able to solve….Every day's an adventure when you're living the Lush Life!

Okay, I like it. It's smart and sassy, but I also think I don't want Draco to get away with this. No mistake, I like a devious Draco, but I feel too much for Ginny right now. She needs some power.

Author's Response:
Ves says: *NODS vehemently* She does. We aren\'t trying to kill Ginny, really we aren\'t!
Myn says: I wrote a long bit about Ginny and power a few reviews up - later than this one, but I was working downwards. In any case, Ginny\'s not going to be meek and mild and trodden upon, I can assure you.

When does Draco's self-vaunted intelligence show? I keep looking for the wit behind his verbals bashings and clubbings. As for Blaise, well, I suppose by comparison he looks like a regular Prince Charming, but why would a smart Ginny would waste her breath on either? They are charming as cramps.

I expect you probably have a reversal ahead, unless the story is about spiralling into abuse. It would have to be quite a reversal because the present Draco is too much.

The best line in the dialogue so far: "I wonder why you're interested in catching flies in the first place." That sums it up nicely.

Lovely resolution to part of one of the most heart-rending stories I've read in the D/G Fanon. It takes a long time to move from the terror of the Puss in a Corner chapter, and the outrage of the Legilimens episode to this wonderfully erotic scene. Your Draco has a wonderfully expressive sensuality. I look forward to reading how you resolve the entire story, especially regarding Draco's loyalties.

Date: May 10, 2006 Title: Chapter 1: Run

This story-within-a-story is very tricky to pull off. Usually I find myself feeling impatient with the passivity of this narrative style, but Draco's story was exciting enough. It did undermine the shock of his final confession, but you made me believe in his change of heart. It could be absolutely rivetting if it was told in "as it happened" tense instead. If Draco shifted into an unreliable narrator, it could turn into a real supernatural thriller, but that would make it a different story. As it is, it's sweet, gentle, and pleasant to read.

Gorgeous, sexy story. I love Draco's compassion and dignity in the opening scene. What an inspiration to bring out the beauty in Ginny! The staircase scene at Grimmauld Place was heartbreaking. The package and portkey necklace was a delightful surprise.

Lucius Malfoy's Good Girl by Anise    (Reviews - 16)

Since childhood, Pansy has known that she's destined for Draco. Trouble is, she hates him, he despises her, and his frustrated desires are turned towards Ginny Weasley, the one person on the face of the earth who is most forbidden to him. This doesn't fit into Lucius Malfoy's plans at all. So one autumn afternoon at the manor, he teaches Pansy a lesson in seduction, lust, and the twisted paths of power...

This is quite an enjoyable story mainly because of that unexpected kiss at the end. Colin and Ron have a very strong presence here, and I'm not really sure how much they help move the story along. They only seem to exist as touchpoints for the awkwardness of Ginny's feelings. Otherwise, it's quite charming, and I love that part about the roots looking sculpted with a chisel. Lovely touch!

It's been such a long time since this was last updated that I had forgotten key plot-points---always the trouble with sprawling novels :^D. Poor Draco and Ginny, I hope they work through their issues soon. I love the way your characters reflect people in real life. A pleasure to read, as always.

Author's Response: Well, I\'m glad I was finally able to present an update! So exhillarating (sp?) getting new reviews! Thanks!

Reviewer: Phaedra7veils Signed
Date: Aug 29, 2006 Title: Chapter 18: Giving Up

These two seem destined to live at each other's throats. Just when I'm fed up with the way one of them behaves, the other acts like such an infant. It's very frustrating. I hope they can move past it into the realization of love---even if it is like a comfortable habit.

Author's Response: Ha! Aren\'t they irritating?! I know, I hate it as well. You as an author know that sometimes when writing, the characters speak for themselves -- and when you try to push them, it all turns out like shit! The writing of this story was therapy for me during a particularly difficult time last summer. None of the story is based on me, but it is based on several of my friend\'s situations. Isn\'t that sad? I know more than one person that fits into this story. Selfish parents piss me off. Can you tell?
The last chapter goes up on Sunday and thank you so much for your review!

This is a marvellous story so far. Sinister and dark, yes, but it sticks so meticulously to canon and seems entirely plausible in Potterverse. I enjoy how you show the Aurors immediately leaping to the wrong conclusion, deflecting attention away from Snape and Malfoy. I don't know how you plan to resolve all the loose ends, but so far, it's excellent.

Reviewer: Phaedra7veils Signed
Date: May 20, 2006 Title: Chapter 7: The Consummation

Since it has been a year since you visited this story, I wonder if you've abandoned ship. It has been an excellent story, and the love potion aspect of the story is quite sickening actually, but very real---reminds me of the date-rape drugs currently in circulation. I would love to know how you planned to resolve the story, because it seems "cornered" to me---a plot that can't be resolved without considerable damage to the characters and certainly not geared towards a happy ending. Snape's and Malfoy's betrayal of Ginny is so horrific at this point. Still, your imagination is wonderful and you are one the few authors I think could work these characters through their current stasis in a believable and unorthodox fashion. I hope you are tempted to pick up the tale and finish it some day.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I\'m currently revising the existing chapters and have the ending in mind, although it\'s at least six or more chapters away. I\'m determined to finish the story but you\'re right ... the ending will not be what people normally expect from me. I\'ve reread HBP since my first revision of the story and believe that my characterization of Draco needs to be darker and more focused. Hopefully I\'ll succeed.

Your story started off with such a bang, that whole saviour debt and engagement--absolutely riveting. But the last few chapters have been so placid--always skirting at the fringes of danger and disaster, never taking the plunge. I keep drawing my breath in deeply, and letting it gently go as Ginny and Draco seem to resolve their problems. But---there's always that lingering wish for fire and the unforseen, for danger, defiance and passion. I long for that plunge over the cliff into the shadows. What stories are hiding in there?
