In a tale of forks, golden tassels and cake, Ginny endures an uncomfortable meal at the Malfoys.Category: Completed Short Stories
Oh, wow, that fic had me cracking up! Nice job, I loved it.
*COMPLETE* Destiny knew better than to bring these two together. One man, determined to draw back an errant Malfoy, is not so wise, and Ginny soon finds herself caught up in events that are not quite Fate.Category: Long and Completed
Gah I love this story! I think one of the best things is the characters. Firsly, I love Pierce, becuause he's such a comple and interesting character. Secondly, I feel like you understand Draco's character really well, what with him detaching himself from people/emotions, and all that he said in the last chapter about using people and constantly being on his guard about what other people want. And then at the end of this chapter, with him feeling so lonely because he feels he doesn't need anyone... it's very in character. It gives him depth without making him warm and fuzzy. Can't wait for the next update!
Ginny knows Draco's patterns better than anyone, but she finds that some days, people just surprise you.Category: Completed Short Stories
I can't believe I've never read this before! I always saw it floating around, and people reccing it, but I always sort of forgot to come check it out. Anyway, I loved it, it was just as a one-shot should be- short and sweet.
Sequel to Break in the sun (till the sun breaks down). For a few blissful hours, the differences between them did not matter. But as Draco and Ginny struggle with their budding relationship, they must soon discover that many things separate them still - family, friends and society as well as their own explosive tempers. The future they want for themselves comes at a price, and reconciling what they each want out of life is a challenge that might just break them apart...Category: Works in Progress
Oh, this chapter was great! I'm not sure if I've ever reviewed this before, but the fic, and the one before it, are some of my favorite D/G stories. I laughed so hard when Ginny found the stuffed dragon and the color-enchaning shampoo! Hilarious!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m happy you like the fics that much :) and that I made you laugh!
Following Harry’s death, Ginny was forced to run. A year later, after an attack leaves her homeless and alone once again, she is forced into the arms of a man she hates, but even his love for her may not be enough to protect her from the fate that awaits.Category: Works in Progress
Ooh intriguing. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Hopefully the second chapter will be up soon. Thanks for reviewing.
How would things be different if Draco had accepted Dumbledore's mercy at the end of book six? Follow the canon characters as they are forced into company with Draco and struggle to survive in a warring wizarding world. And yes, there will be romance.Category: Works in Progress
Ooh, I like this! You write Draco very well in character, which is so rare to find in a fic. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you think so... I'm always grappling with character accuracy issues... it's nice to hear that I'm doing alright! Update should be in the next week I hope... thanks for the review! :)
What happens when a potions explosion coincides with Ginny's annual, self-imposed trip to the infirmary? Sometimes when you don't know who you're talking to, prejudices are laid aside, and you get to know the person behind the family. This is a response to the November challenge of "infirmary" on the FIA forums.Category: Completed Short Stories

Aw that was so cute, I loved it. And very original premise, blind Draco Malfoy. Great work!
Ginny and Draco are assigned to be partners in a cooking class. When they spill a pan full of chocolate cake batter, interesting things ensue.Category: Long and Completed
Oh wow, this is fic is hilarious, and just what I needed as a break from homework. Although I am realy hungry now. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: It's amazing how reading about food can make you want it. I read a book about camping once, and resorted to toasting marshmallows over the flame of my gas stove.
The eve of Harry Potter's wedding, Ginny Weasley is...drinking. Not only drinking, but drinking alone and miserably. Who better to interupt her misery than Draco Malfoy? Ginny's attempts to make him leave are futile- but things don't go exactly as she expected them to. Once vodka, Firewhiskey, and the Green Fairy are added, things don't go exactly as anyone expected them to.Category: Works in Progress
Hmm interesting start. And kind of funny, too. Can't wait to see where this goes!
“You mustn’t tell them, Rose! Harry knows but Lily and the boys… you can’t breathe a word…”Category: Works in Progress
When Rose Weasley went to her favorite aunt for advice on how to handle loving someone her family disapproved of, she never dreamed the older woman would have been able to relate so well. In the comfortable safety of her kitchen, Ginevra Potter told her niece everything and swore her to secrecy. But months later, when Ginevra notices that her daughter, Lily, is spending time with Scorpius Malfoy, Ginny realizes too late that the truth can never really be locked away. Children question their parents and their own identities and everyone must confront the past.
Wow, I love this story! You've done a fantastic job so far. I was surprised I liked this so much because I tend not to like fics that are actually fully compliant with the epilogue :p But you've kept everyone really in character, and made the kids awesome too. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you like it so much, especially when fully compliant's not your style. Thanks so much for your review! I'll try and update with more on the kids soon. ;)
The reveal about why Ginny left Draco was so amazing! It was so angsty and sad, really well-written.
By the way, if you're still looking for a beta for that other fic of yours, I'd be happy to do it. You can look me up on Perfect Imagination for credentials ;)
Author's Response: Checked out PI and I would LOVE if you could beta the other fic for me. Would you like me to just shoot you an email with the nine chapters or one at a time? It is completed and all, just not fully edited, so I could most definately use your help! Thanks so much for offering too! -Rosalie
Oh, man, I wonder is they're actually going to run away together! So angsty, I love it. And Rose and Bletchley are incredibly cute, I love them :)
As for beta-reading your fic, you can email it to me all at once; that works for me. (If you prefer to do one chapter at a time, that's ok, too, but I definitely don't mind all at once, either.) Umm I think you can find my email on PI, but if it's easier, it's also in my profile here on FIA too. Let me know if you have any problem with that.
Author's Response: Aw, I'm glad you liked it! As for the beta-ing, I ended up trying to contact you through FIA and left you my email address. To put it simply, I cannot figure out where your email is and wonderful at PI is, I can't seem to search and contact you as a beta since I have one already assigned to me (meaning Miss Opal for Not Quite an Affair) That's why I just tried to contact you though FIA. If you want to email me and then I can reply back with the full story, that would be great! Thanks so much, Rosalie
When Draco finds Miss. Weasley dancing on the bar at one of London's fanciest nightclubs, he is more than a little bit surprised. Intrigued, amused, he finds himself drawn to her; the interest seems reciprocal. Little does he know that Ginny is looking for more than sex, money, or even love...Category: Works in Progress
Yay, I love it! I'm so glad it turned out so well. I can't wait for more :D
When Ginny Weasley was six years old, she freed a genie from a bottle.Category: Completed Short Stories
That story was incredibly cute! I really enjoyed it, and I laughed out loud when the baron said he was going to feed her to the dragon lol.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was a ton of fun to write!
Ginny Weasley thought her life was going well, until the day Harry kicked her out. What will happen when she has a surprising saviour?Category: Works in Progress
What a great start! I can't wait to see what Draco has in store for Ginny. Hope you can update soon! :D
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind review! I'm really glad you like it and hope it continues to meet your expectations. I hope to update soon, I'm just trying to polish the next chapter. Thanks again!
ANOTHER BRAND NEW CHAPTER, YAY!Category: Essays
Does D/G still matter? Yes! And maybe, just maybe, it matters more than ever before. Read all about the reasons why our one and only OTP is truly built to last. Are YOU ready for the shocking truth? ;)
Chapter SIX Quote of the Day: Okay, there isn't really a quote, but JJ Abrams is mentioned. Just read it. ;)
I think you're spot-on about D/Hr. When I first got into HP fanfic, which just after OOTP came out, I started out reading both D/G and D/Hr, but I eventually stopped with D/Hr because I felt that Draco was so often written OOC in order to make the pairing work. As others have said, I find it nigh impossible to imagine that Draco would ever allow himself to be with a Muggleborn, even if he is heavily redeemed. I do like seeing them as "friends." I had a lot of fun writing them as sort-friends in EOTH, and it felt believable to me that they might come together to work on a problem. We can't necessarily conclude from canon that Draco is super intelligent or anything, but I think he can be quite analytical, and I can see Draco and Hermione connecting on some level in that way. Just not romantically. But then, I'm positively OCD about writing Draco as canonically as possible, so maybe that's just me ;)
Anywho, I'm sorry you lost the rest of the essay and good luck continuing on with it! It's really good and really interesting and I agree with a lot of points. For the most part, I was overall pleased with Deathly Hallows (at least, having resigned myself to the fact that H/G would happen and that D/G never would). BUT, Ginny's character was one of my chief annoyances with DH. She was completely reduced to "Harry's girlfriend." She got no Crowning Moment of Awesome - you look at other characters like Ron, Hermione, Mrs. Weasley, Percy, Neville, Luna, they all got their cool moments and take-downs, and Ginny got absolutely nothing. We were TOLD that she did cool stuff at Hogwarts, but since JKR chose (wrongly, IMO) to basically leave Hogwarts out and follow the trio's boring tramping around in the countryside instead, we didn't get to see any of it. (Seriously, wouldn't the Trio working to find Horcruxes and destroy Voldemort from Hogwarts as a base have been MUCH more interesting? They could have hidden in the Room of Requirement with Neville! That's my other big beef about DH.) The only good to come out of it, IMO, is that you can write fic about Draco and Ginny being at Hogwarts during this hellish year, without the trio present. (Which I intend to do :D)
Author's Response: Thanks! :) I didn't see your review until now, so I hope you read my response at some point. :) I really, REALLY would love to see your take on Draco/Ginny during the final year. I've rarely seen that topic really taken on, and there's so much that could be written about it. (And I'm reviewing your fic very VERY soon!!) Believe me, I don't think that everything about DH was bad, or that it was a completely terrible end to the series. It wasn't Jean Auel's *Land of Painted Caves* (which made me glad that I never really got into the EC fandom.) There were quite a few things that worked very well. The way that the intricacies of the plot were tied up was impressive. Snape's final characterization was great (as much as I think that there were still problematic aspects there.) But I do think that what happened to both Ginny and Draco in DH forms the key to the aspects that DID bother me about it. That's really the theme of the next chapter, which WILL be written, no matter what. (glares at evil drive. Well, it's in California right now, so it's a metaphorical glare!) ;
Ginny's got a secret - or perhaps more aptly described - a bad habit. Will she be able to break it? Or will she end up wanting more?Category: Completed Short Stories
I just realized I NEVER reviewed this on the exchange, which is criminal, because it was written for me! If I remember correctly, I think I read it on my phone in the airport, and then forgot to leave a proper review once I was on my laptop. So sorry!
Anyway, I so SO loved this. So much wonderful snark, and I love a Ginny who won't admit she has real feelings for Draco XD The much-lauded line about the Vanishing Cabinet was hilarious; I laughed so hard the first time I read it, and even more reading it again just now.
I think my favorite scene is when Ginny is sick and Draco takes care of her. There's just something so sweet about one person caring for another when they're sick and vulnerable, that I just love.
So, since I didn't get around to saying it before, THANK YOU so much for this fic!
Author's Response: You are so very welcome! This was actually attempt three, believe it or not. My first two attempts had them a bit younger (still at Hogwarts) but I just couldn't write them that young... I have to say that I especially loved the story you wrote for the exchange. It made me laugh and I got lost reading it - that's my favorite thing ever, when you 'forget' you're reading fanfic and just get immersed in a great story.
