Awh, this was soooo cute! Love, love, love! I just wished it could've stretched a few more chapters (I'm a novel kind of girl), but this fics plot was so good that my 'More than 6 chapters' rule was flung out the window! Absolutely fantastic, love your writing, please, please continue!

Very interesting and good. I've always wanted to go there.... :( and very cute ending :D:D

hmm but wasn't there another story that you were writing? a while ago? that was extremely fantastic and awesome?

(hint hint)



Author's Response: mmmmh maybe? to be fair, I may have lost interest in it. I will perhaps get back to it in August, just because I don't like leaving unfinished business, but there shouldn't be more than two or three chapters and an epilogue. Thank you for reviewing!

Love the Epi and the last line. Wish this was more than a oneshot, but I enjoyed it thanks.

I really like this. It reminds me a bit of The Mummy. Don't suppose you would be willing to continue this as a series? I would like to see the relationship develop between the two that you tantalizingly suggest at after they prevent the scroll from being removed, and between your epilogue. I can only imagine the adventures they would go on together, and protective Auror Draco + Curse Breaker/book smart Ginny is a very interesting combo. You have so much potential for it. I thought the toll that curse breaking took on Ginny was a well thought out addition to your plot. I can just imagine Draco becoming overprotective for that alone over time.

The strength of your writing is in your action scenes. Unlike other writers you like to develop your characters through what they do, and through that we learn more about them, their personality. There isn't much witty banter between Draco and Ginny, and if I had to be completely truthful, they went from open hostility to friendliness/romantic a bit too fast. And I don't mind the lack of banter, there is something more to the conversations between your characters here. More like affectionate antagonism.

So summary - I would like to see more of these two characters, lots of potential for it, and I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Author's Response: Thanks a lot for your review! I understand what you mean about going from open hostility to romantic interest. I did not mean their kiss to act as the latter so much as the unsuspected consequence of a very stressful ordeal. I did envision this as being a bit longer and debated taking them through Egypt, Peru, and so forth, but didn't quite feel like having them go through the whole thing. I actually haven't seen the Mummy, but it must be something like Indiana Jones, right? At any rate, if I come up with more ideas for the "in between scenes", I may be persuaded to keep writing this story. In the meantime, I'll think of it as completed. :)
