Hesperides' Apple by ogygiasylph    (Reviews - 868)

When Ginny Weasley becomes Draco Malfoy's wife, he suspects neither her true identity nor her dangerous motives. But when all Hell breaks lose and their relationship takes unexpected turns, there is more at stake than preserving their marriage--namely, preserving their lives.

Sooooo....
When will all be revealed? When will Draco find out? What will he do? Will the child be born with pink hair and her suberfuge be discovered? Rhetorical questions, all. I'm captivated. Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: LOL pink hair??? dear me, no, I can at least garanty that much! As to discovery and revelation, it\'ll happen... in about, ah... four chapters, I\'d say. Thanks for reviewing--I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the story!

If I haven't mentioned it before, this is a very well crafted story. I'm interested to see how you weave it all together for the falling action and denoument... because I KNOW the climax is coming soon... it's been 'four chapters'...
I'm kidding. Let the axe fall when you may. I am, however, getting stressed when I read this. Put an end to the reader's misery! Let Draco find out! (oh, and love Ginny anyway)

OH! Such a fantastic chapter! There was sooo much! My heart dropped into my stomach at all of the revelations and reactions. I feel sorry for both of them, and can't wait to see how you work it all out.

Author's Response: thanks :) I\'m glad you liked it. I\'m not sure I feel sorry for either of them anymore, and can\'t wait to get them back together... or maybe not... oh the dilemma...

Now it's really getting good! You can just cut the tension with a knife. How many chapters of angst can we expect before reconciliation? Thanks for the update.

I enjoyed the way this chapter was set up, with the settings announced before the action began. Nice touch!

Draco is bending. There's finally a happy light at the end of the tunnel!

Lovely chapter, thank you.

Wonderful chapter! I thought this passage was particularly lovely:

The smell of warm, nearly dry grass, and dirt moist with the remnants of desiccated streams permeated the air, lightly, softly, like the whisper of the summery landscape unfolding before their eyes.

Just beautiful! Thanks!

Not Quite Fate by Hearts Cadence    (Reviews - 935)

*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.

Poor Draco. What did Pierce slip him?
Something that just ENHANCES how he aready feels? Poor Gin, too. Oh, so lonely. However will you fix all this?

Wonderful chapter. Loved it. Truly.

Author's Response: Sorry if I didn\'t explain the potion well enough. Sort of tricky. It didn\'t enhance or make him feel anything that didn\'t already exist. What it DID do was suppress his hate, leaving him free to see all the lovely things about our Ginny that all the bias covered up before. Hope that makes sense.

Darco is just soooooo complex. I mean, how can he NOT occupy her thoughts?
Great chapter. I like how he's slowly evolving into someone less... evil? Mean? Snarky? Into someone she might be able to care for, It's gradual, but it's there. Well done.

I've got to say, Ginny being in better shape than Draco is amusing. The cold shower at the end was brutal. Great chapter! Thanks!

Date: Jan 21, 2007 Title: Chapter 17: The First Move and an Epiphany

Oh! It was fantastic! I absolutely loved it! Denial is so Draco, and people telling him that something was so wouldn't do any good... he'd have to come to the realization by himself. Great chapter!

Date: Feb 23, 2007 Title: Chapter 19: Jewels and Disruption

The unrequited love (lust?) is killing me! I did like this chapter, especially Draco's emotions (almost) running out of control, the neclace, and the bit with Nott at the end. I'm waiting with bated breath for the next update!

Nott's one of the good guys. Well, blow me down. And looks like Professor Pierce might be, too.

Excellent. Looking forward to the next.

Date: Mar 28, 2007 Title: Chapter 24: Unthinking

Well, before it all went to hell :) it was so steamy good! She'll wise up and kiss him again soon, I bet. They'll at least have to talk about it, right? And Draco will convince her that they belong together, happily ever after, right?

Or however you want to do it is fine, as well. ;) Enjoyed that chapter immensely! Thanks!

Frozen by Lunaeyes    (Reviews - 183)

*Completed* Draco spent his childhood being frozen out by everyone. By his father, by his mother, by everyone in his life. So now he freezes everyone else. It's cold, but it's safe.

A girl with flaming hair and a fiery soul can save him, but only if he'll let her.

Nice cliffie. I like Draco's gradual rationalization of his feelings, and Ginny's denial of hers.

I like it all very much.

Author's Response: Ah, thanks! It\'s great fun writing this stuff, I love it so much. Thanks for the kind review! Lunaeyes

Date: Sep 10, 2006 Title: Chapter 8: Striped Scarlet and Gold

Nice chapter! I love that she gave him something to remember her by. Fun. Now how's she going to get it back?

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! Hmmm, how will she get it back? You\'ll have to wait and see, but I promise that it\'ll be interesting. Lunaeyes

Date: Nov 12, 2006 Title: Chapter 10: Burning Green

Success! Draco admits jealousy AND feelings for sweet Ginny and puts their initials together on a sweater (so sweet I can't stand it)and then Harry stupid Potter shows up. No, no, no, no, no. She MAY NOT screw this up.

Of course, this IS your story and I guess you're pretty much going to do what you want... but a nice "Harry smack down" would be a great read...

Author's Response: Haha, what a fantastic review. It was a nice and progressive chapter up until the end there. We\'ll see where this goes. Hope you stick around to find out! Lunaeyes

Reviewer: Persephone33 Signed
Date: Dec 13, 2006 Title: Chapter 11: Loved and Freckled

That was wonderful. Possibly the sweetest love scene I've ever read. I really think it's sweet how they switch clothes to feel close to each other... I'm intrigued by the Dark Library and how it will help Narcissa.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you. It was a very sweet chapter. There is a lot of intrigue, and I hope you keep reading long enough to see how everything unfolds. Enjoying your latest story too, by the way. Lunaeyes

Tsk, Draco. Pushing those away who love you most. Can't look weak, can you? Silly boy.
He'll have to fix this, won't he? Oooh, and Ginny has to decide how to handle this... can't she come too?
Your dialogue is very nice and your prose is very visceral... I really love it all.

Author's Response: Oh, yes. Draco will pay for that mistake. Ginny won\'t be able to come, I\'m afraid. Poor girl, caught in the middle of something like this. Thank you for reading, reviewing, and the lovely compliments. Lunaeyes

That wa a very nice chapter. Millie is a fantstic advice giver! I love that she's lost weight and now distrusts all the stinky boys who're asking her out. She's a fantastic advice-giver! Very wise.

I love alphabetization! That was great.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I agree with Millie. Never trust a guy who was mean to you before. But where does that leave Ginny?

Date: Dec 22, 2006 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10

Ah, I love the dialogue. "...cranky bordering on bitchy..." and "I don't want to be a rat-bastard..." Funny, and very real. Can we expect terribly romanic things to happen at the Charity Ball?

Since this is the second time I've enjoyed this story, I decided to tell you! I love the plot, and their relationship is sweet and believable. Just as good the second time!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad that you enjoyed it! Twice!
