A Tale of Two Matchmakers by Kerichi    (Reviews - 527)

Romance for three couples when Blaise and Luna use Shakespearean styled matchmaking to hook up Ginny and Draco. There's Much Ado about...something!

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill award for Best Romance- Non Canon on Mugglenet

* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is.*

I absolutely loved the Fred and George dialogue. Great chapter!

Author's Response: Aw, thanks. I heart those two. I wrote an Angelina/Fred story where the Harpies locked her in a cellar with the twins at a Halloween party (because they couldn\'t tell which one was Fred) and she got to kiss both of them to find out...a little author-insertion moment there! :D

Harry Potter and His Rather Large Ego by nun outfits are cool    (Reviews - 98)

I don't think anyone on these boards will fault you for making Harry a git. He gets everything in the books, so you can certainly dismiss him here. =)

Interested to read more!

Author's Response: ach, i know... he is so broody in the books... like a chicken..... uhh, more of that to come.

I write on little scraps of paper, too...
Times I laughed out loud:

"You shouldn't speak of them."

"He flicked his hair expectantly."

"Neville gave Harry a look he'd been practicing in private."

So funny. Cathartic. And a really like the way you capitalise the Very Important Things. An amusing concept.
Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: :) my beta said that the second thing reminded her of prince charming in shrek. That made *me* laugh. Cheers for your review and I am vair happy you liked it

So are you going to write the Fourteen Days of Christmas, now? Because THAT might be fun...

Cute story!

Author's Response: I love your gigglesnorts. They make me smile. Thanks for the review. I am planning on doing the fourteen days, I just have to get my other plot bunnies to settle down for a while.

Author's Response: Thank you. I like Draco to be a bit jealous even if he doesn\'t realize why yet.

Redeeming the Dragon by thelovinspoonful    (Reviews - 350)

"Perhaps it really didn't matter what he was, perhaps it just mattered that he was." Unexpected events lead to unexpected relationships. Can one person be so important to the destruction of Voldemort? Nothing happens by chance, but sometimes, life might be simpler if it did.

Don't be so hard on yourself. I thought it was a lovely chapter. Draco's reaction to being snotted upon was just quintessential Draco, and all of the other characters rang true as well. Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: Thank you for the encouraging review!  I must admit that I had fun snotting on Draco (for a touch of irony, as usually he's the snot).  I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Reviewer: Persephone33 Signed
Date: Dec 04, 2006 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue: In Essence

Well written chapter... Ginny's powers are very interesting and I loved Draco's snooty sounding snort. Patiently anticipating the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you! I really don\'t want to create a \'super\' Ginny, despite the fact that she does have a sort of magical \'edge\' on everyone else... so I\'m glad she doesn\'t come across that way. =D

WHAT a cliffhanger. Great chapter, the flow from the dream to reality was nicely done. Thanks.

Author's Response: Thank you! I was really worried about that, so I\'m glad to see that it was understandable and worked well.

He gets on with it like the crafty Slytherin we know and love, but is distracted by a certain red-haired Gryffindor...

Because of these three phrases...

...and your mum is fat.

Parkinson wasn't so bad, if you squinted.

...topiary bouncing in the wind.

I know that you are some kind of comic genius. You make me laugh, anyway.

Author's Response: I am sure Ron feels very keenly about Draco\'s witty and cutting insults. Poor old Pansy, though. She doesn\'t get much in the way of happiness in this story. Maybe I shall pair her off with the hedge. They would make a cute couple... I did like the topiary bit ;) A comic genius, huh? I could get used to that idea... Glad you liked it.

Lonely Night by Pipperstorms    (Reviews - 22)

Draco walked slowly, his head turned towards the ground. The snow was falling heavily now and he knew he should go home, but he didn’t want to. This was her favorite place to come on Christmas Eve, and even without her, this was where he wanted to be. (inspired by Blue Jupiter's Lonely Night)
