I am an actress, playwright and married mother of two who is a little (a lot) obsessed with D/G fan fiction. I am currently at work on my first novel. Fan Fiction helps the creative juices flow, y'know? I record D/G stories for your listening pleasure and mine, and am in charge of the Podcasts at FIA.

Shall Rise Again by Peki    (Reviews - 292)

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...

I love Christmasy, sweet, fuzzy, playing in the snow chapters.
*sighs*
I kind of like how Draco wants Ginny to be happy even if it's going to cheese of Narcissa.
Great Christmas gift, too, by the by. How can she turn down a broom? (and I loved it that he let her hit the wards - very Draco-esque)
Fabulous! Thanks!

Author's Response: *g* I love sweet and fuzzy, too :) And yes, Draco has his moments, doesn\'t he, when he\'s actually...well, cute. One of his strengths is that he is so very perceptive about others\' feelings and weak spots, and imo, that speaks of more sensitivity than Draco would probably like to admit to *g* He cares about Ginny now. :) But of course that doesn\'t mean there won\'t be trouble again, hee! I\'m happy you like it, thanks.

What vivid imagery, the description of Draco while he slept... and Ginny's reaction to it.. I like this very much... (and am happy that the title has nothing whatsoever to do with the plot) Thanks for the chapter!

Goodness.

Or not, depending upon your persepective.

I especially like the line, "but what she saw most was herself, thousands of reflections of the true self that no one else knew." That's very pretty, and a good imagery of what true love involves, in one girls opinion.

Thanks, though. It was worth postponing homework!

I've no idea about the song... I'm rubbish with lyrics... can't wait to hear which it is, though.

Author's Response: Thanks! Worth postponing homework is a high honor indeed.

Reviewer: Persephone33 Signed

Isn't it funny how mention of sparkly things can distract a girl from yelling at her boyfriend? I adore the conversation between Ginny and Ron... (I still have exchanges with my Dad that are just like that) and then Draco's response to it. It shows depth of character in him to show empathy for Ron... unexpected, but I liked it!

Author's Response: Thank you. I like to think Draco isn\'t a total prat. If he was he\'d be no fun to grow old with.

Smiling Like A Doll by Angelsea585    (Reviews - 16)

She would not look at him. She would not talk to him. And she would certainly never speak to him again. Being a slightly temperamental red head, Ginny Weasely had no problems playing with fire, and instead had been burned by dry ice.

One-shot inspired by Thalia's Pleasure and Pain.

Always Mine by Angelsea585    (Reviews - 19)

It wasnít simply her exquisite face, her lustrous hair or her graceful curves that moved the cynical poet within him Ė it was seeing it all bound before him, bent to any of his dark whims, and the slow death of the fire in her eyes that stirred his shadowed soul.

Unredeemed!Draco - smut-free, but too dark for firsties.

You know, I've read this more than anyone else, probably, and I STILL say "Yikes". Draco, even at his WORST, is still somehow delicious.

Author's Response: I think that\'s part of what makes him so dangerous. How can I *not* get weak at the knees for dark/dangerous!Draco? And for alliteration... I should perhaps add devious, debonair and dead sexy, too.

Red by goddess_of_ether    (Reviews - 128)

When Ginny Weasley made her fashion empire, she and Draco Malfoy broke up under less-than-favorable conditions (a flying cup of hot tea was involved). Now, he's worming his way back into her life and her business, and he's determined to win her heart. Ginny, however, is not risking it again after he broke it once before . . . But when Narcissa Malfoy gets personally involved and decides that a close working relationship for a charity benefit is the best way to get them back together, sparks fly, not all of them potentially lethal.
