I am sad to see this end even though I knew how long it would be. I like your Draco in this chapter. He loves Ginny even though he can be cold. -'He didn't have the same sentimentality as Ginny did, having seen countless of girls subjected to similar fates'...'He didn't know what he'd do if they took away Ginny too.'
I know you said your Draco's probably wouldn't be too nice and he's not. But his Love for Ginny makes up for him keeping his old beliefs and being able to do what he needs to do to survive.
(I am so sorry. I haven't been really reading and doing no reviewing for the last couple of weeks. No excuses, just life has been a bit busy.)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad that you enjoyed the series, but I had to end it a bit soon because I wasn't getting a lot of creativity in with this one, since everybody who read "Lady" already knew the beginning. I'm really glad that you liked Draco, though, because I really try to keep him as canon as possible, which means making him a bit cruel sometimes. In fact, in my new story, he's quite mean at first to Gin, actually. Don't worry, though, because his love for Ginny will definitely prevail and will be his redemption (as I see it). As for reading and reviewing, you really are such a great reviewer that I'm just glad that you read my work; I know all about life being busy since I'm loaded with classes right now. *sighs* It really means a lot to me that you still left me feedback, though. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

I don't like fluffy draco per se, i just like that only the redhead makes him a little fuzzier (we'll call it that) that he is around everyone else. He will do anything for her and giver her anything and he doesn't have a problem with it. He actually prefers it that way. So only the redhead sees the fuzzier side, everyone else sees the ice prince.
I think the thing that killed Flint, wasn't the sex or even the up-close view. I think it was his realization that she as naughty as he imagined and that she wasn't opposed to former Slytherins (just that she already had hers), or that there was nothing he could use as a bribe or leverage because whatever she wanted, she could clearly get. Favourite line : "Gin, whats Marcus Flint doing in our house?". The "our" in that sentence must have killed Flint because he assumed that if she took a job from him and would put up with his sexual advances then she must have been really hard-pressed for money until she sees hes shagging a Malfoy and that any and all threats to bodily harm could and would be carried out. LOL I just made my self wanna read it again. So much for Crim Law.
Author's Response: I don't like fluffy Draco either, but I agree that only GIn being able to soften him up would make me fuzzy inside. The ice prince dethawed by his one true love, the fiery redhead. :) As for the Flint thing, I thought about what you said, and I think you're right. When I was writing it, though, I wasn't thinking about it that deeply, I just wanted Marcus to get his comeuppance and to realize that he was completely wrong and had screwed up. :) It was a sort of don't-touch-Draco's-things lesson for him. :) Crim Law and psych tests for me. DGT, we have such identical lives it's scary. :)

It was absolutely no promblem my dear! I have enjoyed every minute of this story.
I liked how this chapter made everything into a full circle, and how much compassion Ginny had for the woman. I also loved Draco's attitude in the courtroom, and you can so see him naming the wing after Ginny for the medias sake but also out of his love for her.
Gorgeous, thank you for everything and good luck for any future projects!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad that I got the chance (and motivation from all my wonderful Lady readers!) to write a prequel. This was sort of how it happened in my head, and it was only a matter of getting it down and tweaking some details to make it fit. I really tried to tie up all of the little loose ends. I'm glad you liked the chapter, though. :) Ginny definitely feels really sorry for the woman, since she's never really been exposed to this kind of thing. Haha, and Draco's courtroom attitude was my favorite to write. I tried not to make him too remorseful, but I didn't want him to go to Azkaban, either. And as for the naming of the wing...haha, one reviewer over at ff.net reviewed Lady saying that it was a little too fluffy, so I tried to make it more in-character for Draco and not so mushy for everyone else. He definitely did do part of it out of love, though. :) Thank you so, so much again for reading and reviewing. You have been with me since my early fanfiction writing days on this website, haha, and I really appreciate you taking the time to review and tell me what's going on. Now that I'm finished with this, I'm eager to work solely on a few more D/G projects, so I'm just trying to see where that takes me. :) Thanks again!

I really like this! I can't wait to read more of your stories!
Author's Response: Thank you so, so much! This was kind of the chapter that wrapped everything up, so I'm glad you liked it. :) Now that this is finished, I have more time to work on my other D/G projects that I've been wanting to do for so long, so I hope that goes well. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing! I've seen your name so much for so many of my stories, and I really appreciate you reading all the things I write and giving me all your nice feedback. :) Thanks again!

I like the fluffy aspects of Draco Malfoy's Nurse "Draco" cuz he allowed himself to get hexed by a dunderhead to get into the hospital wing to see Ginny. If that's not love...
But The Boss' Secretary is my all-around favourite "Dracos". He reminds me of Tutoring Services and Vineyard Summer "Draco". Confident, Sexy, Powerful, Sarcastic, Witty, but with a tender side that only the redhead brings out. Just don't mess with him or his girl or you'll wish you were never conceived. That sort of thing.
I keep picturing them shagging in front of Marcus Flint with her hair in his lap. Let me tell you, it does not help the jealousy thing, no siree. Gone to wallow again...
p.s. Definitely a series of DGT moments....
Author's Response: Fluffy Draco was definitely really fun to write, just because I rarely ever write him that way. I tend to make him pretty mean, actually, and kind of cold. I did think that it was both funny and romantic that he would do so much for love, haha. I would love to always write Draco like that, except it's so much better for plot details when he's not nice. Then, that leaves tons of barriers for Gin to break through. :) And I love Vineyard Summer Draco as well. I haven't read Tutoring Services in a while, even though I do believe the author updated a few weeks ago...hmm, I'll have to go back and read it sometime. I admit to loving confident and slytherin sex god draco too (DGTM!). And as for the bit about Gin's hair in Marcus's lap, I thought it was fitting for him to get a bit of close up action, haha. *joins Nutmeg44 in her wallowing because what else are DGTs for?*

What a wonderful way to end this - another magnificent completion. You're brilliant. Get off the internet and go pen a novel because you have more than enough skill. No, wait, I take that back. STAY on the internet and pen a novel. I'd miss this too much! I CANNOT wait to read more. There must be a million ideas more up in your head, let's hear them all. Much Love, Emily
Author's Response: Thank you so, so much! Haha, it's really really funny that you should mention penning another novel, because I was actually writing original fiction before I started fanfiction. I kind of got sucked into fanfiction, though, and D/G, so I've since then neglected on any updates for my actual "novel". I'll probably have to pause fanfiction for a while later to finish up what I originally started, but I can't seem to give up writing fanfic for now. Reviewers like you just make it wayyy too addicting to write fanfic, lol. Haha, and I do have some ideas that just come to me, but it's a matter of not overloading at the moment. :) thanks again for reading and reviewing, emily, you are so awesome!

I was thinking about which "Draco" portrayal I like best and it would definitely be the confident, dead-sexy, gentleman from The Boss' Secretary with may be a little bit of Draco Malfoy's Nurse thrown in. Just to show the lengths he'll go to for his lady love. But I definitely adore the shagging-on-the-desk Draco. I'm so jealous of Ginny right now. *slinks off to wallow in jealousy over a fictional character*
Author's Response: Ooh, Nutmeg44, ANOTHER DGT moment! *squeals* The Boss's Secretary Draco is my favorite too. I had so much fun writing him. Hmm, maybe it was the fact that he was kind of all sexed up in that one, haha. Draco Malfoy's Nurse Draco is a little nicer and fluffier, but I don't think I'll be revisting him again. Nasty and sarcastic Draco are kind of my favorites, haha, same as you. He will definitely go far for Gin, though, so don't you worry. And as for shagging on desk Draco...hmmm. *drools* Need I even say that I'm experiencing yet another DGT moment? Haha...

What I particularly liked about this fic is how true you kept Draco to his original character. He's not nice, in fact, he maintains his bigotry and flaws, but you still made his relationship with Ginny very realistic. The way it came about is very believable, including how there's a forced marriage, but she would still be able to love him. You write an excellent story and it has depth without wordiness. I really enjoy your work.
Author's Response: Yay! You reviewed AGAIN! :) That makes me so, so happy. I'm glad that you thought that Draco was in character, since OOC is one of my greatest pet peeves. I definitely don't think that Draco will be reforming himself anytime soon into a friend of the Golden Trio or something like that, but I do want him to reach a level where Ginny can compromise for their relationship. He did force her to marry her, but given the shortness of the chaptered fic, I wanted them to have a history already so that I didn't start from ground level. :) Thank you so, so much for your awesome review and for all your encouraging words! (P.S. Are you still going to update Die with a "T" soon? I was rereading that yesterday and was hoping that you would give us an update. :) )

Aaahhhh, the girl from Draco’s memory was so on my “top 3 list” of who the anonymous narrator might have been lol. I think that was really good well-rounded short story....something to read when you’re not in the mood for all that nitty-gritty detail. I ahve to say, I really liked the relationship between Draco and Ginny in this fic...you could just feel the bond without the author having to penn it down (does that make sense)....all the absent touches caresses while they conversed were so sweet! Looking forward to reading more of your stuff!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Now that you mention it, I'm curious as to who the other top two was for the unnamed narrator. I'm glad that you liked the little short story, though. I tried to keep the D/G relationship as real as possible--not too sweet and sugary and not too indifferent either. I had a lot of fun making Draco twirl Gin's hair about a couple million times throughout the fic though, haha. Anyways, thank you so, so much for reading and reviewing this story from start to finish! You are amazing. :)

I fic-stalked you to FF.net because I didn't wanna read my text books (*hides face in shame*) but I read it and I loved it. I also must tell you that I positively adore Lie To Me. Draco is in for such a awakening when he realizes his bet with Astoria involves the Weaselette. Looking forward too the updates. :D
Author's Response: DGT!!!!!!! Haha, thank you so much. I just got your other review on ff.net. Thank you so, so much for reading and reviewing twice, you awesome girl. And as for me, I have steadfastly put off reading my history textbook too, and am now stuck in an academic ditch. I'm glad that you liked the ending for this though! And as for Lie To Me, I'm glad that you liked that one as well. I actually came up with the idea for that one first before anything else. The one-shots have kind of been a culmination to this one fic. Draco is definitely in for a rude awakening next chapter, though. He's definitely not going to be happy that he spoke so rashly...Thanks again for reading and reviewing, you awesome DGT!
on Mar 01, 2010 08:11 pm
I'm still curious as to what happened in that 2-year timespan. However, I think Draco's performance during and after his trial is pretty funny, and I liked seeing what happened outside of that game.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I wanted to make this longer too, and really get all the nitty gritty details in, but my creativity was being hampered by the fact that this was a prequel. I kind of wished that I had written this one first and then written "Lady of the House." That would've given me a lot more to work with. I'm gad that you liked Draco in his final moments, though. I tried to keep him as in character as possible, but he was still kind of different from the one in "Lady" since this was told from Ginny's POV. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing and for always giving me great feedback! It really means a lot to me. :)

I know exactly how u feel. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish there was a chapter or two to read while I stop my brain from exploding while studying :D. Hopefully the final update for The Lady's Beginning, maybe...
From one fanfic-induced procrastinator to another, good luck on your tests and such.
Procrastinators of the world unite....tomorrow. :D
Author's Response: Haha, I am exactly the same as you. I completely neglected school work yesterday in favor of finishing "The Lady's Beginning" and doing the first chapter of "Lie to Me" (which is a name I want to change, since I felt like it was kind of lame. Anyways, I hope that your brain is okay and safe and sound. I do want to get in a routine of updating every week. And hehe, the final update for "Lady's Beginning" is finally up and finished up. Whew! I can't believe I actually finished a semi-long D/G story. And yes, procrastinators unite everywhere! Especially in the world of fanfiction...~DGT!

My procrastination with D/G is getting worse. I have text books I haven't even opened yet, whose contents I need to know by May. Its going to take some major cramming. Wish me luck...
Author's Response: I am so sorry, DGT. I am the worst twin ever, but I'm definitely in the same position as you are. Tons of cramming for May tests and the workload is killing me. I don't think I've been on FIA since the last time we spoke. Anyways, my sorry excuses aside, I wish you luck on your exams! I'm testing for multiple subjects and still have a long way to go. Fanfiction has been booted down my priorities list this semester. :( I can't wait for summer. :)

OoooH clever - I didn't realize that Blaise's 'girlfriend' was that lady from this chapter!! This has a great plot without a doubt.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad that the part about the unnamed narrator came as a sort of shock to you. I didn't really give any clues about it, except for the icy blue eyes and the little daughter hiding behind the door. I'm really happy that this managed to have some plot to it, because when I set out, I was really only planning on writing about the snapshot moments in their relationship. I'm glad that you liked the way it developed though. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

This was an amazing chapter. I was slightly disturbed by what Draco had Ginny watch. Especially the memory where he killed someone the FIRST time and the last one showing when he decided he had to kidnap her to keep her safe. I am so clueless; I totally missed that the lady in the last memory was the narrator from "Lady".
I was confused about her dream. At first I was scared it was really happening, I knew he wouldn't die because he's in "Lady", but I thought the torture was real and somehow he got saved. But when she was in her bed I figured out it was a dream. But was it some kind of Trelawney thing going on where she was seeing what could happen if Draco was discovered? what danger he had exposed himself to by loving her? and did he really help her brother get away?
I can't wait until the update to see where this ends up.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It was really hard for me to write this chapter too, because I've never written any death scenes or torture/rape ones either. I had to rewrite it three times, because the first draft was all full on rape details and imagery...which I felt like my readers wouldn't want. And as for the part about the lady, well, it wasn't too obvious. I think the only thing I really mention is her icy blue eyes, her daughter, and that's it. Don't worry, I'll explain that more in chapter four. And as for the dream, I wanted to make it as real as possible since Ginny was the one experiencing it, and it would be real for her. I'm glad that it didn't confuse you too much, though. And YES, YES, YES! You are ABSOLUTELY right! *sighs* You're reviews always talk about the little nuances that I put in there for the reader to pick up, and that makes me so happy. The dream was to serve a couple purposes. First, it was her subconscious' worst fear, showing that she still does care about him deeply, no matter how mad she is. Second, it's that she realizes that even though she's mad at Draco, he runs a terrible risk for doing what he did--this shows that he cares deeply for her also. And third, I felt like I needed something to really catalyst Gin into action and help her overcome her hurdles after what she saw. Her dream was just a way of twisting all three of Draco's memories together. And as for the issue with her brother, I'm not really supposed to say, but...*nods discreetly and whispers* yep. He got Charlie and Bill out of town a day early, and Ron was already with Harry. Anyways, the next update is the last one, so everything should clear itself up. :) thanks again for reading and reviewing and for all the insights!

lol. no worries. its probably a good thing i have no new stories to read. it might give me an opportunity to salvage my grade before my exams in may. too much fanfic, not enough law texts makes Nutmeg44 a poor student...lol.
Author's Response: Haha, I am totally with you. (Another DGT moment!) I was so obsessed with D/G for first semester in school that I almost failed my classes because I would constantly be devoting my time to this website. Now that I'm taking exams in May as well, I've tried to limit myself and force myself not to open the computer until I'm done with all the things I need to do.:) JT is a terrible student too, especially when she uses fanfiction to procrastinate. :)

I have to say, I think you've handled this fic, with all its prequels and sequels and time- jumping beautifully! Looking forward to the next chapter!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! *gives more gummy bears and lollipops* I'm glad that you were fine with the time-shifts because I was a little worrie dif people might complain about the time being weird and for the lack of development. I should update the next chapter this week, so that the story can get wrapped up. Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)

Hmm, my first review got deleted.
Anyway, that was pretty intense. I'm glad that she was only dreaming because you had me going for a minute. I'm glad also that they're working things out, though I do wonder how things are going to lead into The Lady.
Author's Response: Haha, I actually haven't been on FIA for the past couple of days, so I didn't even get to see the first review, but thank you so much for taking the time to leave a second one! Things were really all jammed into this chapter, becuase I felt like they needed to work out a lot of issues between them. I wrote that dream scene, but didn't really make it clear, so I'm glad that it kinda fooled you for a little. They are definitely working things out, and it'll get better. I really don't have anything planned for the next chapter, except that it's kind of "Lady" all over again with some added additional epilogue as to how the war ends and stuff like that. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

im am waiting not-so-patiently for all of those. especially vineyard summer, tutoring services and all the stuff from CCC. so i read a mind darkly drawn and B/L are hilarious. Malfoy Minor...LMAO. i tend to dislike when when D/G marry young and then move into the manor. in my head, they take a townhouse in london or a cottage in hogsmeade or something cuz i think ginny would insist on them being an independent family even if draco takes a house-elf or two[i doubt he'd give up being waited on]. plus i think it gives more scope for funny drama between the young couple if they have to adjust to living 2gether and relying on each other for all their needs. i get the malfoy in-law thing can lead to drama but i think its over done in fics now. other faves of mine are Unstoppable; and Love Interrupted by Charmedlife19. both are so good from different aspects :).
Author's Response: Ooh, some new recs! Haha, don't you just love B/L in that one? And Malfoy Minor...haha, I thought she did a a wonderful job. I'll have to remember to go back and review it in my spare time. And as for a townhouse or a cottage, I've read some great stories where they shag like crazy in flats and whatnot. I think getting their own home is more modern, and Malfoy Manor is more traditional with Malfoy heritage. And Draco would definitely not be able to stop being waited on...just cuz he's the spoiled Slytherin we all love. And Malfoy-in-law drama reminds me a lot like Weasley-in-law drama as well. I'll have to go check out some the Charmedlife19 fics now. Thanks!
