Harry is dead; Voldemort won (or did he?); Ginny Weasley is all alone, left to the mercies of the Malfoy family.Category: Works in Progress
I am, like most readers I am sure, expectantly awaiting the next chapter. You've managed to show how their relation develops from pretty much a business deal (I save your life, you give me an heir) to a full-fledged, I'd almost say "happy", marriage. Though I've never had a baby, I found your description of the giving birth extremely convincing--not to mention, scary as hell! (Oh, the fear that she might succumb... Only the promise of following chapters let me guess that she was still alive) The sex-scenes are, likewise, mind-blowing, though their scarcity makes them all the more appreciable (kind of like dessert). I also appreciated that you did not try to make Ginny's first time with Draco the time of her life, or that you weren't afraid to have her express "revulsion" at his subsequent conjugal visits to her (that is, up to a certain point). Will we learn more about Draco's elder brother (or did you just not want Lucien to be called Lucius?)? Moreover, the constant tension maintained by the fact that Draco and Lucius are traitors to Voldemort definitely adds a twist (and tension! and fear!) to the "becoming a loving family" plot. Thanks a lot for the very enjoyable read! Looking forward to more (MORE MORE MORE!!!mwahahaaaaa) arhem. Thank you :)
Life after Hogwarts was a mystery to Ginny Weasley, until one night she spent in the arms of Draco Malfoy changed everything. Now she has to deal with the unforseeable consequences. Will she be able to handle the hand fate had dealt her with?Category: Works in Progress
I could actually translate the passages in French for you, if you want. As it is, it sounds like it's coming straight out of a translator. A computerized one.
Draco Malfoy watched his wife twirling around the room with her brother, Bill, a dazzling smile plastered on her thin face. Her laughter rang out and he couldnít help the smile that overtook his face. She was so beautiful. So beautiful and so unequivocally his. He could hear her breathing was still slightly ragged from her impromptu dance with Bill. He frowned. She was getting weaker.Category: Long and Completed
Powerful. It's a courageous feat to have Ginny die, and yet live on through those letters and Draco's attachment to her. I almost found myself wishing he'd grow over her, if only to attenuate his pain. And, of course, I was teary-eyed when Fred (or George, I forget) finds Ron, Draco and Ginny, and the broken pictures. The semi-colon and broken sentences carried the point across perfectly. A poignant story.
Author's Response: thank you very much. it was fred who found them. thank you very much for taking the time to review. im glad you liked it. :D
Draco Malfoy has made it through school, chosen a career and made a somewhat small niche for himself. But problems begin to surface when he is hired to eliminate a threat that just happens to take the figure of a former lover and her family. Now he must break the most cardinal of rules: Never make it personal.Category: Works in Progress
What a beautiful style. Your sentences flow, rich and pregnant with meaning, without being too dense or long. The picture is masterfully painted, the tossing of the paper with the Horcrux location intense. I'm off to read more, but I just thought I would take a few seconds to praise a chapter so worthy of it.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, and of course, the kind words. I personally think it\'s a bit ironic that my English teacher/professor used to threatened to flunk me because I had trouble with sentence structuring and the like. Maybe I finally figured out what she was trying to knock into my thick head! :)
It's "please, mon coeur". "heart" is masculine, in French. and now to read more (oh glee!!) :)
Author's Response: Sorry about the bad French; it\'s been too long since I took it in high school. Next time I\'ll make sure to double and triple check it before I post it! And thanks for the review!
*Completely AU* In a world where Voldemort was never defeated, only a few things matter: pureblood, money and power. All that Ginny Weasley wanted was to survive her 7 years at Hogwarts, a school where the children of the richest and most powerful wizards dominate over others. Denying her natural instincts, she managed to make it into her 6th year without offending any of the cruel and powerful Slytherins - especially that horrible Draco Malfoy. Until one day, she crosses a line, and her peaceful existence is shattered forever. A story filled with adolescent drama, clash of the classes, angst, jealousy, ridiculous pride and love triangles (and squares).Category: Works in Progress
yes yes yes yes! Can I say that though I haven't read this chapter yet, I am extremely excited to find that your story has been updated!
Despite my visceral dislike for AU stories, this one has captivated me. Your Draco is perfectly in character, and so is your Ginny. And the violent tension between them, stronger than it would be in a non-AU Hogwarts, makes their "romantic" interaction all the more appreciable.
I can't wait to see how this unravels, and I am, in fact, off to do so right now :) Thanks for providing D/G lovers with such an enjoyable read!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I really appreciate your comments re: their characterizations, especially as this story is SO AU, I have to really keep myself in check to make sure they\'re not 180% different for their canon-portrayals.
Narcissa Malfoy wants Draco married off-- and quickly! So, she chooses to send him to a date coach of sorts. What Narcissa wants, Narcissa gets! *Fun, fluff!*Category: Long and Completed
hmmm delightful cliffie there. is she going to feel offended or amused? appreciate the mockery or give in to frustration? now where could this be leading us, I wonder... ;)
Author's Response: I have no idea where it is leading us or them.... RIIIIIIGHT! hehehe thanks for the review!
Draco plays some very nasty games with Ginny, but she emerges the winner. Smutty, smutty, smutty. Also, his potty mouth is thoroughly indulged.Category: Completed Short Stories
The first time I read this was on the Yahoo group. (Pillar of Fire, I believe) After screening Internet for the finished version of a fic which I then realized did not exist, I waited. The beginning of Keeping Christmas on the Death Train had me breathlessly awaiting the installment you had hinted at via two (two!) cookies... And now you speak of MiB. In your mind and notebooks. What I would give to have access to these... Maybe sex with Draco--seeing as your stories more than make up for even such a phenomenal fantasy!
*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
uhu... tricky... Is she going to make him a girl? Because that could provide an interesting twist...
What can I say. I've enjoyed this fic from the beginning, and have been eagerly expecting updates. Needless to say I was thrilled to see this chapter, as well as all the prior ones. You've managed to make D & G's relationship realistic to the extent that it can be, and the added tensions are well built into their "budding romance". I cannot wait to see how this plays out, so please, don't keep us waiting too long.
And thanks for the most agreeable read!
2nd Place at Pud's D/G Fic Contest! Five years ago, Draco Malfoy was offered sanctuary by his motherís cousins in India. Now, with the death of his father, the Malfoys need an heir, and Narcissa sets out to find her son a wife through the aid of the far-seeing, fortune-telling Morcant sisters, who decide upon none other than Ginny Weasley. Seeing this offer as a means of escaping the horrible war that has descended upon England, Ginny accepts their proposition, and finds herself in a foreign land engaged to a Draco Malfoy who seems to be a strange mix of the old and the new.Category: Long and Completed
I like your style. You manage to conjure eloquent visions of setting without piling up long descriptions, which is always a plus for the eager reader. When can we expect the next chapter? (Have you finished writing this story and are posting it bit by bit?)
Author's Response: Thank you, and thank you for reviewing! I\'m glad you enjoy. Yes, this is already written and was submitted to Rainpuddle\'s D/G Fic Contest, where it placed second. I\'m putting up a chapter probably once every two days. There are only ten, don\'t worry!

No wonder you won the contest! :D This is absolutely delightful, both in your concise depiction of characters and seemingly diabolic(al?) plot. Uh, since I suppose this already written, please update soon? 0:) You wouldn't want to leave reader(s) agonizing for the moment when Draco and Ginny meet, would you? [puppy-eyes and trembling lip]
Author's Response: What a nice thing to say. Thanks! I\'m proud of the fact that this story has a plot (and that I stuck with it), since my other works have a tendency to wander. Don\'t worry, updates will be regular and quick since most of the story is already written.
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
Mmmmh delightful :) The tamper tantrum, the subtle mix of anger and sorrow between D & G, and then the mother/son confrontation... All were masterfully executed and inexorably pull me deeper into your story. I don't suppose we can expect a new chapter imminently, but I'll be watching... Beautiful job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I love writing Draco\'s tantrums, now and then *g* and of course confrontations between D/G, while painful to read, are fun to write. I do hope to update soon though, with something less angsty!

Long live the king.
hmmm... not only is your style exquisite and your plot enthralling, but this little cliffie here just called for a review. we've all read about the Weasleys dying one way or another, one by one, from attack, disease, or torture, but this is definitely the strongest account of such death that I've ever read. It begins with Draco's recognizing the voices, then Arthur's apparition and his mysterious, sickly sweet interlocutor... Chilling... I hope you update soon, as I am definitely hooked.
After an unexpected attack on Hogsmeade takes the lives of several loved ones, Ginny Weasley is left with only grief as a remnant of war. But what she never anticipated, in the wake of all the tragedy, was to find her will to live again in the form of a bawling, grey-eyed baby left to die in the wreckage of battle... the baby of Draco Malfoy. REVISED VERSION.Category: Long and Completed
I remember reading this the first time around and not thinking much of it -- what a mistake! I thoroughly enjoyed it the second time around, and felt you had given us a good mixture of family life, romance, angst, and mystery / thrill / action. I liked your depiction of Draco and Ginny -- it felt very natural -- as well as that of Lucius, which I found very realistic. I'll be curious to see more of Will as he grows up and is able to say words beyond "dada" and "book", but I'm sure that your ability to flesh out your characters will not leave me disappointed! Aaaand I'm now off to read the beginning of the sequel. Yay!

I'm afraid I never stopped long enough to review this piece, but it is absolutely breath-taking. Your mastery of the written language, as evidenced in all your fics, is superb. It is always, always a pleasure to read what you write -- and this fic is no exception to the rule. I really hope you will keep writing and will continue to grace the DG world with your splendid fiction.

Thank goodness for the Awards: they allowed me to read this a while ago, before everyone else got to realize what a beautiful story this is. I liked the way you stayed true to canon by making Draco nasty, ill-tempered, self-centered, but also terribly human in his fear and need of appreciation. D & G's relationship was well depicted, harsh without preventing the possibility of something more, and when the something more appeared it seemed like the only, right thing. Thanks a lot for this very enjoyable set of chapters!
*Final chapter added* Parenting can be overwhelming, even for wizards. Especially when there are teenagers involved. Draco and Ginny, summoned to Hogwarts for a conference with their children's Head of House, share an interlude neither can forget.Category: Completed Short Stories
clear cut epilogue or no, this was incredibly enjoyable! Thank you for writing this delicious little piece. I'm now off to see what ending you've got in store for us :)

I'm fairly sure I've read this story before and never left a review; I have no excuse. I enjoy this fic each and every single time. Your prose is fluid and witty, the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy. Thanks a lot for writing such an enjoyable fic! Your Draco/OC banters were particularly endearing.
Author's Response: So sorry for the delayed reply, but thank you very much for your wonderful comments! I'm so pleased you've enjoyed the fic and I'm glad to hear it stands up to rereading! :)
Ginny takes a job that will send her to France, but she can't stop thinking about the man who left her. One-shot.Category: Completed Short Stories
Random little comment for an otherwise very enjoyabel read (I hope you won't mind): "Je t'aime toujours" actually means "I still love you". You might want to use "Je t'aime ŗ jamais." for an exact translation or "Je t'aimerai pour toujours.", which is "I will love you forever".
Author's Response: I don't mind at all! I'm clueless, so I'll take your word for it and change it. Thanks very much. n_n

Ouh I liiiike. You write beautifully, and you keep us hanging, waiting for the next action. Your portrayal of Draco's dangerous temperament and the horrors of the war is chilling, realistic, and tremendously enjoyable. When's the next chappie coming out, then? ;)
Author's Response: So I may have spazzed out a bit when I saw you had reviewed. ;) And it's a lovely little review, too. The chapter, unfortunately, took a month to come out (maybe more if it takes longer than a day to be validated!), so I hope you aren't too disappointed when you read the third chapter. Thanks so much for the review! :D
COMPLETE! Sequel to The Enemy of Souls. Draco Malfoy has a problem: his life has become unrecognizable. He’s willingly helping a Mudblood. He lives in a Muggle apartment. And he’s constantly forced to make nice with the biggest bunch of blood traitors around. The source of his problems? Ginny Weasley, the witch he’s possibly in love with. Which makes the secret he’s keeping from her his biggest problem of all—because this secret could ruin his relationship with Ginny forever. And he’s not the only one with a secret…Category: Long and Completed
I'd be curious to know what that event (now replaced with a different plot) was!
Author's Response: I don't mind sharing. Ginny was going to get pregnant and miscarry. It's not necessarily a bad storyline, I just decided I didn't want to go there. The problem was, it was important because it totally ripped Draco and Ginny apart for the rest of the fic, and I still needed something like that to happen to cause that. I think (hopefully) I came up with something just as good :)
