She is his Darling, and she will always be. [At last, proof of my disturbed mind. Rated for swearing and general twistedness. Not a happy fic.]Category: Completed Short Stories
This is fantastic. So purely dark; no need to add anything else to make it work. Love it.
Two and a half years after his failure to kill Albus Dumbledore, Draco has long been accepted back into the ranks of the Death Eaters. He is still obsessively searching for the rebel Ginny Weasley, but he hides that secret well. When she is found one snowy December night, he smuggles her onto the Death Eaters? train with him. And he begins to learn that nothing will ever be the same again?Category: Works in Progress
Hello Anise! Wow, I'm out of words, really.
I love, love, love this story. It is so dark, so long and twisted, and so charged of emotions that I physically felt a strong pain in my chest while reading it, I felt Draco's anguish and anger and lust and everything... It was such an amazing journey and I want it to be finished! Please? Pretty please? I'll make you my most delicious chocolate cookies. I'll send them by mail, via UPS, Fedex, or whichever you want but please, please finish it!
Now, seriously talking, It was overwhelming. I devoured it completely. Congratulations, you've got the gift, girl (are you a girl?). And if you ever publish some original fiction of your own, don't you dare not telling me. You are a wonderful writer, thank you so much for this. Hugs!
Author's Response: Hey PB, Wow, I'm glad I just happened to check this!! Well... here's the thing about this fic. I planned to revise it and then write a new ending, and then a lot of other issues got in the way. But I WILL get back to the project at some point. I think that by the last couple of chapters, the narrative just kind of went off the rails, and I saw a much simpler way that it could go. There WILL come a time when it actually gets done. :) Speaking of original writing... ;) It's not fiction, but I'm working on my memoir. (I couldn't write it as fiction-- nobody would ever believe any of it!! ;) For fanfics, though, I think the next update will be a new chapter of *Malfoy In a Glass.* And thanks again for reviewing... Anise, of the female persuasion
Yep. That second new chapter is actually here. This fic will continue!! :)Category: Works in Progress
The sequel to Draco's Dangerous Dilemma.
Nearly two years have passed since Ginny saw Draco in a coffeeshop for the first time after the war. The two of them have been trapped in a seemingly neverending cycle of lust, betrayal, revenge, and despair ever since-- until one night of passion at the Pureblood Ball proved to them both that their bond could never be broken.
But there's a world outside the fragile love budding between the pair. And Ginny just may find out that Draco's past casts a shadow that neither of them can outrun in time to save him...
Chapter NINE Quote of the Day:
“So here’s where we are,” she said. “The sketches are ready. The clay models are done. I’m happy with them. You?”
“Very much so,” said Draco. His mouth quirked upwards. “Remember Bob Ross and his Happy Trees? I’d never have believed then that we’d reach this point, but we have.”
“We’ve come a long way since then,” said Ginny. She remembered how furious she was when she first learned that she’d be working with Draco on the fountain project, and that he’d somehow finagled his way into the Junior Minister of Art position. How snippy and cold she’d tried to be to him; how snarky he’d been to her in return. How exhausted he’d always looked, too, and how much she had wanted to smooth away the dark circles from under his eyes and put a real smile on his handsome face. She’d threatened to report him to the Minister of Art and have someone else reassigned to her; she was ashamed to think of that now.
“We certainly have,” said Draco, giving her one of his real smiles, the sort she’d never imagined his face could possibly form in those days. She tried not to smile in return. She wanted to remain as serious as possible.
OMG OMG OMG
This is epic.
At first I didn't want to read it because you weren't updating, but now, oh I'm so happy!!!
Please tell me you're planning this one to have like a hundred chapters as well.
Or at least, like fifty.
Yeah, fifty would be good.
I could read you all my life, did I ever tell you that?
Have a nice day and bunny-hugs (?)
Author's Response: Thanks PB!! :) I don't know about a HUNDRED chapters... ;) But yes, there's a lot ahead for this one. I did SO much work on it before taking a looooong break in 2012. I think I'm going to add a brief summary of everything up to this point before the next chapter... it's so much to keep track of, and I had to go over the entire DDD/SH summary to get caught up on everything. More soon!
Ginny Weasley wants nothing more than to focus on her Quidditch career and have a fun time doing it - but between the Ministry of Magic's plans to implement new marriage regulations, slanderous news articles by Rita Skeeter and a pair of irritating Slytherins, she just can't catch a break.Category: Works in Progress

This is so good. I need to read moreee!
Author's Response: Haha, Pokemon references are the best.
Thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying it. And thanks for reviewing. :)
Oooh this is getting better with each chapter!!! I love the way you portray them as adults, how you are shaping their personalities!
-I suck at reviewing, btw-; just wanted to tell you I love your writting style and your story ^_^
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Ginny is probably less of an adult than she could be, all things considered, but she's got plenty of room to grow.
Don't worry about your review quality too much. I (and any other author, whose work you may review) am grateful for any kind of feedback - even if it's just acknowledgement that SOMEONE out there is reading what we've been posting. So, I really appreciate that you took a moment to do just that! :)

This is a LONG review, with possible grammar horrors. Ye be warned!!!
There's this friend that came to visit me the other day after almost two years of not seeing each other. We were talking about a lot of stuff and then the HP topic started (we actually met each other 14 years ago in a local book store where "Harry Potter fans club" meetings used to be held), when he suddenly burst out in annoyance because of the way things turned out to be in the whole story, and said "You know what? I hated the way Malfoy was portrayed in the last books. He was actually my favourite character because he was far from perfect, and yet, he had an incredible rich background of family issues, dark stuff and inner feelings such as rage, jealousy and despair. I just hate those pathetic attempts to kill Dumbledore with those cursed artifacts, JKR constantly reminding us of him being just a "bully" and nothing else, the way he didn't seem to know obvious things despite being born and raised in one of the most powerful wizarding world families", and so on... I was startled. And then, out of the blue he says "The most stupid thing was the way Harry and Ginny ended up together.I mean, Harry suddenly realizes that Ginny is there, then they start dating and then he broke up with her because of a pathetic excuse of Voldemort knowing about them-because you know, if Voldemort can see inside your head and you break up with her but still love her, he won't realize. Right.-, and then they go back and marry and have children? What kind of example is that for girls? Oh, he dumped me but it's ok, because he is the hero and I have to wait for him and do as he says. Even though I know he is leaving with my brother and another girl. Nice. And in that fatal epilogue, Ginny quits an amazing Quidditch career because she gets married so young and has like 3 children? What??? Think about it. If Harry's got Voldemort inside him, and Ginny was possessed and consumed by his teenage horcrux, then if they one day have a child, the most probable thing is that he or she becomes the next Dark Lord." And then, the miracle, he ACTUALLY said it: "Malfoy should have ended up with Ginny. I mean, it would've been perfect. When Harry leaves to go find those deus-ex-machina-horcruxes, Malfoy turns out to be the man for Ginny. He is clearly not amused by being a Death Eater, and maybe, he could've been "saved" by her. Maybe because they share some darkness, they both know Voldemort. So, he could start seeing the poor abbandoned Ginny as an ally, or as a person he could share his thoughts whith. Then, they start dating, and it is perfect, the bloody damn Romeo and Juliet thing. That way, he gets his "redemption", Ginny gets to be with an actual strong (but until then undeveloped) character that challenges her, and maybe, hey, maybe we are all saved because he helps Harry defeat the Dark Lord, as a spy or whatever, and there's not that stupid black or white no more, because, you know, thi isn't a children's book anymore, and some things are just plain gray or complex and deserve to be developed..." Genius, indeed. I felt like kissing him, thank goodness he is gay, otherwise I would've had a lot of trouble with my boyfriend. I never expected him to say that, but he did. And I was HAPPY because I didn't feel like a crazy "canon sucks" fan. So, maybe we are not that crazy, maybe there is a lot of reason in the love we share for this couple. The A-MA-ZING stories i've been reading from this page demonstrate my point, most of them are far more real than canon, more consistent and touching, just because of the ying-yang way that Draco and Ginny connect, the perfect balance and the almost infinite posibilities of plot developing that connection can lead us to. So, never stop writing. Hugs!!!!!!
Author's Response: YAY, AMAZING, AND WONDERFUL! The review, I mean. :) I didn't see this until now. I really think that there's a lot more to say in this essay, and I've kind of been holding back from really writing it... but at some point, the truth will come out! ;)

Ginny fled the wizarding world when betrayal, deception, and heartbreak tore apart her life. A year later, she lives and works as a Muggle-- and the co-owner of Athena's Saucy Shoppe of Salacious Delights. But she's about to learn that it isn't so easy to leave the past behind... especially when it comes packaged in the person of Draco Malfoy.
Chapter TWENTY Quote of the Day:
Ginny tried again, deciding that it was time for her glowering blond companion to help her out whether he wanted to not.
“It’s so great to catch up with old friends, Draco. Don’t you think?” She jabbed Draco lightly in the ribs under cover of darkness.
Draco clamped his hand around her waist like a band of iron. Oh, no, Ginny thought despairingly. This was not going well.
"She's mine alone,” said Draco.
"But she's got other customers, right?" asked Theo.
"She is not to be shared,” said Draco. “I… ah… don't share my toys. You ought to remember that, Nott.”
"But if she's no more than a toy, then it shouldn't matter." Nott's expression was turning crafty. Suddenly, Ginny had a very, very bad feeling about what might happen next.
“Seems as if you shouldn’t mind sharing Ginny with me, don’t you think, Malfoy? After all we’ve been through together? You know what I mean, don’t you?”
(Fans herself. Gets a drink) This is brilliant. I love it.

Ah... beautiful. Thank you for this.
Author's Response: You're welcome and thank you for leaving me a sweet review!!
Ah, superb, as always.
Yours is one of the best Blaise(s) ever.
And I totally feel like Desertisle: When all I knew was darkness, and plot emptiness, and deus-ex-machina, and underestimated characters... FanFiction saved my fan-life, sending little benevolent spirits like you, to write these beautiful stories and rescue me...
Author's Response: I like Blaise too, he's funny, and he's scarily easy to conjure up in my head! Fanfiction can certainly be a great escape, both writing it and reading it, when you don't see extactly what you like in canon, no matter how much you love it. I'm really glad you like it! //S
Beautiful chapter! Ah, this is the Ginny I always wanted to read about. Fragile but strong, a fierce and caring woman... tender, sweet and anything but naive. Good job!!!! (yes, I'm so happy)
You even make me love grown-up Neville now. AND you write about a cute-sick Draco?
Author's Response: I think Ginny is an amazing character that just didn't get quite the featuring time she deserved in canon so I really hope I do her justice :D More grown up Neville will come, plus more of Draco being cute in a multitude of ways!
I´m awful at reviewing, but I have to say it, this was brilliant. I am amazed by the way you are shaping each character with their own dialogue style and inner thoughts, it's just genious. And I love, love love your Draco here.
Can't wait to read more; this is becoming a GREAT story. Congrats!!!!
Author's Response: Your review works great for me ;) I'm glad you see them as separate, they each sort of speak in my head when I write them (I'm not crazy, I promise). Draco is dreamy, I like when he talks in my head the best - him or maybe Blaise...So glad you like it!
I like this story so much. The way you describe the feelings and situations make it so real and lovely. Those dialogues between Draco and his son are priceless. Can't wait to read some more!!!
Author's Response: Sorry, I totally missed this in my "sweep"! I'm so glad to hear you like the dialogue, I definitely have a lot of fun writing it!
The last thing Ginny expected when she got called into work was a promotion; and she certainly didn’t expect the disruption it would cause to her carefully constructed life.Category: Works in Progress
This is getting SO good...
The way you manage to immerse the reader into the "Business" world- which seems to be a very difficult thing to achieve- is so wonderfully done that I- being myself a non-native English speaker- felt sooo comfortable reading this and, at the same time, involved -somehow- in the plot, wondering what would be the next little power games and what do the characters really mean with each word...
Does that make any sense? I dunno.
Just want you to know that your fic is fantastic. Please keep on writting? (makes the puss in boots cute face)
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I hope you continue to enjoy. - Ann

An amusement park based on the Tudor dynasty sounded like a good idea when George and Luna first proposed it to Ginny. But nobody counted on insufficient codpieces, Styrofoam beheadings, random roller coasters, and above all, Draco Malfoy…Category: Works in Progress
Chapter 7 quote of the day:
Harry suddenly took her hands in his. “I’m not going to fail you again. You don’t need Malfoy to play the king; I’ll do it. I had no right to tell you I wouldn’t.”
His hands were warm and firm and strong, and he was talented with them, too, she thought. Nothing like Draco, of course. But then, she couldn’t imagine anyone else being like Draco.
“Ginny, come with me,” he repeated. “Give me another chance. With this. With everything. Let me show you how happy I can make you, happier than Malfoy ever could.”
If she thought of it in terms of simple, uncomplicated contentment, thought Ginny, he might even be right. Everything would be easy and even with Harry, no storms of emotion, no soaring heights, no miserable depths.
Yassss happiness and joy. Always a delight to read a story from you! But oh, man... what the freaky flobberworm is going on with Draco? Honestly I don't have a clue. I'll need to read some more. Bad, bad attitude from the guy. Good for Ginny for being so cross. It's just so bizarre the idea of a Tudor era amusing park, I just love it. We'll see what happens in the next chapters, I need to catch up a little bit...
Until then, thank youuu so much for sharing and bunny hugs!
Author's Response: PB! ((many bunny hugs)) Great to see you. :) Draco has a secret, which you'll see in the next two chapters. The Tudor era part was in the prompt for the exchange, and somehow the idea of Tudor Disney just kind of came up... ;) Anyway, more soon!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear fic!!!
Loved this one. It's like reading about two teenagers starting to fall in love, the innocence, the shy touches, and the stares and the small kisses. Awww so cute. I liked the stargazing scene as well. I wish JKR would've put more attention to the astronomical things going on in Malfoy family, it could've been an interesting thing to read in canon. You did it, instead, and I'm soo glad, because it was great. (I'm so nerdy about astronomy). You say this is the longest chapter you ever wrote, but you manage to keep the tension and the feelings going on between Draco and Gin.
At least Ginny is not alone; I want more, too.
Author's Response: This is Draco's first experience with romance, so the innocence (but also the naughtiness of previous chapters :)))) and shyness and wonder of it is very much intentional. And how can Ginny resist, how can she not react the same way, when that kind of attention is given to her? The beginning of her relationship with Harry was nothing like this because it was unrequited at first, and then she had to hide her feelings, but in this chapter, Ginny didn't have to hide anything because Draco was feeling the same things and he wasn't hiding them. It's all very magical and I wish someone would look at me the way Draco looks at Ginny. *swoons*
I'm so glad you liked the astronomy bit! I took an astronomy class in college, but I didn't pay as much attention as I should have, so I had to do a bit of research about constellations for this chapter. And I'm glad you liked the chapter! I worried that there would be TOO much going on, and maybe too much talking, but I had to get the backstories and vulnerable moments in there as this was definitely a relationship-building event in the story. It sounds like it all worked for you, though, so that makes me happy!
Hugs!! Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
Why would you put a warning over such a beautifully written smut scene?? Ah, I love your Draco, he is so cute, I want to hug him and and make him feel good about himself so he can make Ginny so happy and and and they can love each other properly...
That's how you make me feel.
There are some fascinating lines in this chapter, like the "The light freckles scattered across her shoulders like a negative image of the night sky" one. You create these beautiful images in the reader's mind from time to time and it makes your story not only interesting to read but also so full of sensations and feelings... I love it when authors take me inside their character's heads to the point that I start feeling the same things in my mind and my body. And damn, you're doing it, girl.
Please keep on writing!!!
Author's Response: So this is probably one of the top ten or five reviews I've ever received, and I can't even express how warm and fuzzy my warm and fuzzies are as a result of reading it. n_n This is definitely one of those reviews I'll come back to read again and again. Thank you so much for such kind words. I definitely intend to keep writing! In fact, the next chapter *SHOULD* be posted next week. :D Thank you thank you thank you!
yaaaaay another one!!!! thank youuuuu

The comment made her grin wider. Closing the distance between them, she brushed her fingers over his cheeks without thinking. Draco grew still at the contact before relaxing into her touch. As their eyes met, she said Tergeo softly. Instantly, all the snow and ice from his face and hair was siphoned off. Upon examining her handiwork, Ginny was pleased to find that she had managed to do wandless magic. The indignation on Draco's face slipped off and was replaced with a serious look of contemplation.Category: Completed Short Stories
"Oh come on, that was just simple magic and I am not the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter for nothing."
Ginny joked, trying to lighten the mood. She knew that look on Draco's face very well: the clear, sharp, piercing grey eyes of his become stormy whenever he was in deep contemplation about a difficult decision. She remembered that look when he first decided to share about himself honestly; that look transpired into a great friendship between them. To be honest, she had never thought they could be friends, good friends even, but there was just something about his dry humour and no-nonsense honesty that she appreciated. If she needed someone to tell her the truth without frills and give it to her, he would be the person she goes to.
Finally, he opened his mouth, "Ginevra-"
I loved it! Especially the way you managed to develop their thoughts and emotions, that was a very good read. I would love to read more from you :)
Author's Response: Aww thanks, I pride myself in that and it is really encouraging to be validated like this, thank you <3

Woooow that last scene of Draco appearing in a window reminded me SO MUCH of the last scene of that movie, "Mine Ha-ha (a.k.a The Fine Art of Love)"; although that scene was way creepier than your story XDDD
This was mindblowing. Poor Draco, I feel so sad and sorry for him. I hope Ginny can keep Draco's memory alive...
Author's Response: I haven't seen that movie, but that last shot of Draco was inspired by the ride at Disney World, The Haunted Mansion. At night, if you look close enough, you can see the shadows of people moving in the windows of the attraction. ;) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! n_n
