As Long As You're Mine by CharmedLife19    (Reviews - 16)

"...And just for this moment | As long as you're mine | I've lost all resistance | And crossed some borderline..." Even if it's just for one night, intended hate has turned to love. (HBP Spoiler!)
**based off the song by the same title from the Musical Wicked**

Nice story. I especially like the lyrics from Wicked... they fit in very well with Draco & Ginny, and their particular predicament. I've probably listened to that song a couple of dozen times and never really paid any attention to the lyrics. Perfect.

Thanks!

*breaks for applause, cheers and whistles*
So romantic! So lovely! I loved it to pieces, and it was absolutely worth the wait.
*sigh*
I'm gonna go read it again.

Author's Response: *bows* Thank you so much for the lovely lovely review. I am glad that there are other fluff lovers out there. I realize now that this is super super fluffy -- but I couldn\'t get all angsty... I just couldn\'t. ;) YAY for multiple reads! ;)

A Common Cure by Black Alnair    (Reviews - 157)

AU. Draco Malfoy has an uncommon skill and he offers his services to the Order of the Phoenix to protect his mother. But as his importance to the Order grows, his strength and will slackens. Finally, all Draco wants is peace, but can Ginny Weasley help him find peace with her before he seeks it in the Dark?

This story takes place after OotP but uses a few elements from HBP.

**And now includes illustrations! Thanks to the rulers of the DG universe, er...the Cabal, for letting me post them here!**

Very nice ending, there. Kind of takes your breath away.

Interesting concept of the transfer of personality traits, that Draco thinks he'll infect Ginny with his badness... though it didn't really take him long to acquiesce, did it? 17 year old boys, and all...

Nice chapter. Looking forward to the next.

Author's Response: Yes, I would imagine it would be really hard for a teenage boy to turn down the offer... ;)

Well.
That was unexpected. Bella is pure, unadulterated E-VIL. Worse than Voldemort, I think.
So she did something to him, gave him something with that kiss, right? Ick. I would not presume to guess.
But I'm hoping for a happily ever after. Or at least a 'no one that I love dies' ever after. Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: Haha, yeah, I was creeped out by Bella when I wrote this! But what the plot demands must be fulfilled... Thanks for reviewing!

I love this fic, as well as your style of storytelling. Being inside Ginny's head and listening to her thoughts is hysterical! This still has me laughing:

Percy, I love you, but I do not like you. Talk to mum and dad for Christ's sake. Bloody fucktard.

Brilliant. This would make a terrific audio fic by the way, if you're interested. Thanks!

Author's Response:

Oh. My. God. You have no idea how much the fact that you just reviewed means to me. I LOVE your fics. SO much. Knowing that you enjoyed something I wrote makes me giddy with joy !

Hahaha, really , I would love nothing more than an audio-fic, but to be honest I haven't even written the third chapter for this story. Also, I'm kind of surprised these two chapters turned out so well, I'm actually not that great of a writer and it was a total shock that people liked it ! Thanks so much for your review, it means a lot to me, and let me know if you still think it's audio worthy at the end of it :)

The Hidden Doorway by kjcp    (Reviews - 201)

- The sweet mother figure that swears like a sailor
-Fred and George's dialogue
-Pining, distraught Draco
-Ginny's new haircut

Well Done, so far. Really. I like it a lot and can't wait for another update!

Author's Response: thank you very much. it amuses me that Ginny\'s new haircut falls into your love catagory.*giggles* but personally i\'d have to say Tilly because she\'s so much fun to write. thank you very much for taking the time to review. :D

I was just thinking about this story yesterday and voila! Today it's updated. (Like magic...)

Always fun to read one of your chapters... I thought the whole Drake spilling the beans in the parlour scenario was very amusing and Lucius' reaction well placed. It softens him to see that he has emotions that aren't under strict control. Can't wait for Ginny to try to draw Narcissa out. THAT will be worth the wait.
Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: Thanks! I must have been reading your mind ;) Poor Lucius, it\'s not often he loses control of his emotions, but his grandson has the power to make him forget his stiff upper lip and all that ;) Ginny may very well rue the day she decided to try and draw Narcissa out *g*

Reviewer: Persephone33 Signed
Date: Jan 03, 2007 Title: Chapter 6: Business Before Pleasure

Your chapters are always worth the wait! There were so many things that I liked... I loved how Drake was so protective of Ginny, the perfect little gentleman. The much anticipated conversation between Ginny and Narcissa was delightful; she's not such a bad mother-in-law, Ginny could do a lot worse! I love that Draco was such a happy drunk; "Nighty night" sent me into fits of giggles. Siccing Angel on a hungover Draco was just horrid, although really no less than he deserved; and I can symathize with his swearing to the tiles... I really can. Two more lines had me giggling, that she was "keeping him alive for her own amusement" (rather like the cat who plays with the mouse before eating it), and Lucius' "It may pay to advertise when you're single..." Both priceless! Thanks for a delightful morning of reading!

Author's Response: Thank you :) Drake is very protective of his mother. Narcissa isn\'t bad for a MIL and Ginny should be thankful. Draco did deserve everything he got and some for coming home in such a state and then making a mess like that.

Another fabulous chapter! What can shake the Weasley boys' world? Molly getting sick. It's sweet that she loves all her boys so much, including Draco.

I'd like to see Draco's reaction to putting signs in the corridors of his home.

Thanks, it was a wonderful read!

Author's Response: Thank you :) Molly does love her boys and she must have them close to her. We know Ginny wouldn\'t say such a thing to Draco, but Ron is certainly not above giving his opinion ;)

Oh, Dragonsangel! From beginning to end, a fantastic chapter! I giggled a LOT at all of the men getting sloshed and the women making fun of them. Poor Draco will have to pay for his behavior eh? Lovely! Thanks for the very satisfying update!

Author's Response: Thank you *g* When men get sloshed we\'re supposed to make fun of them, aren\'t we? *smirk* Draco will most certainly pay for his behavior, but he does have a little ammunition up his sleeve as well ;)

Crossing into Chaos by Emeral_eyes    (Reviews - 511)

*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).

A very sweet nature in Ginny revealed when his sickness brings out her maternal side... and then she acts like and idiot and says she can't have anything more to do with him... well, that's just too bad, because she'll have to go and take care of him on his sickbed. Or whatever else you have worked in to the plot will be fine, really. Thanks for the great update.

*tries not to pout*
Really, though, I love an AU D/G fic without all of the EVIL cluttering up a perfectly good snogging story. I'm especially fond of Gin and Pansy having an afternoon of beauty together. That, and "the wall" and the "tea cozies" and the syrup. Hermione's line (in ch. 7, maybe?) "Honestly. You're Draco Malfoy. Can't you just sneer and threaten..." I laughed hard.

Fun story. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you. Please don\'t pout. It will all work out in the end. I like a Draco who isn\'t evil too. It\'s hard to lust after a man who might torture and kill your family. It just seems wrong.

The baby thing wasn't real, right? Just one of Trelawney's misses, right?
Whatever the case, I'm enjoying this very much. The Pansy/Blaise stuff, too. Can't wait till they're all dressed up at the Christmas ball together!
