Ok so I definitely switched over here at the beginning of this chapter after your warning and let me tell you. Totally. Freaking. Worth it. Gooooood god is really all I can say.

Author's Response: Thanks! :) I hope you like the rest.... there's a lot more to come, as you can see. ;)

Oh. My. Wow. That was hot. And amazing. And I'm not sure if I want to beat him to death or molest him, but either way, that was fucking hot.-Ice

Author's Response: Thanks so much! :) There's much more to come... as you can see. (peeks ahead to the end of fic. Lots of chapters left. ;)

Nooooo! I didn't want it to end :( Oh well. The end of another great story! Gosh, I got ePub version of this to put onto my Kindle, and it was like a gajillion pages long! :) It was nice. But, I have to admit, I was expecting- well, I was looking forward to it, really- some great big scene where Draco finds out about Ginny's experience in the Chamber of Secrets, because that always happens. But it's good, because it was unpredictable! I do wish Collin had gotten together with somebody, and Blaise and Luna were just too cute! I had this strange feeling of loss when I saw 'The End.' :'( Well, thank you for posting this! I was never really into Draco/Ginny, but then I read this, and now I can't think of Draco with anybody else, or Ginny with anybody else. I kind of wanted to punch Harry the whole way through. And Hermione as well, which was rather strange, because I'm a Hermione fan.

Author's Response: Well, it had to end at *some* point... and it was about a gajillion pages long, as you noticed. ;) As for everything that still felt unfinished at the end (such as the CoS revelation that didn't happen), remember that there's still a sequel! It really couldn't end here. So there will be more, but some of the other fics will be finished first (such as MiaG.) Thanks for being a DDD reader. :)

Soooo sorry it took me this long to get back on track and continue reading your fabulous fic! I'm nearly at the end of my college education and it's been really insane! I'm still working a lot to keep my head from just falling and rolling away from my body, but until that happens, i've managed enough time to read this!!! Yay!!!! I'll keep on reading! If you happen to read this before the holidays, Merry Christmas!!! and a very happy and joyous new year!!!!

Author's Response: It's all good! Do NOT let your head fall off... that could cause some problems... and a very merry Christmas to you too. :)

This story is beyond amazing. Thank you so much for transporting me back to the wizarding world. Please continue to write a sequel. Do it for all of us potterheads who have nothing to look forward now! I love that their road wasn't an easy one. I read this basically in one sitting and I was hooked the whole time! FABULOUS!

Author's Response: Thanks SO much! :) I definitely will write a sequel, although I want to work on some other (long-neglected) fics first. Draco and Ginny didn't have an easy time in this fic, but I really think that it couldn't have gone any other way. But one sitting.... WOW. (hands out a medal. ;) There will be more!

as your other reviewers mentioned, there is plenty of juicy stuff left to fill a sequel, and I am very curious about all the unanswered questions we have left. I still have this eternal hope that Draco and Ginny will have a happoly ever after though, despite all the odds. It's funny how reading a fic like this can sometimes make you forget that it isn't canon, every time I go back and read the originals I still am surprised to not find Draco and Ginny together at the very end.

well done Anise, this is a real and significant aachievement. I loved every bit of it - the anticipation, the angst, ALL OF IT, and eagerly await Book 2, as well as any other fics you intend to publish.

Author's Response: Hi, Purr! (I think that AHHHH went off the edge... ;) Mmm... chocolate cake... Thanks!! Yes, I think that this is one of those fics that needs a sequel. There are just too many questions that remain unanswered, too many characters who have too many reasons for revenge or who just aren't going to go away quietly, too many things that Draco and Ginny are still hiding from each other. For instance (and this is kind of a cookie crumb, I guess... but then again, not really, because it's something that I think readers could figure out) Ginny is going to insist on complete honesty from Draco from now on. BUT, she obviously never found out that he revealed some really nasty parts of his personality and then Obliviated her on that night back at the Lyme Bay cottage (around Chapter 20.) So what's going to happen if she ever finds out about that?

Anyway... (Now, we KNOW that in the actual hidden canon, they DID get together.... the way that the 7th book didn't end D/G was all because of those evil aliens from the planet Zoltar, who kidnapped JKR and made her write that ending. It makes perfect sense. ;)

Awww I loved the ending. I can definitely see why there's a sequel, but I loved it. Thank you for sharing such a great story. I can't wait to see how the rest works out and I know Astoria won't like this one bit, but I feel good and very pleased so far. My trust you in stands. =D

Author's Response: Thanks SO much! Yes, I'm glad you see that there does have to be a sequel-- too many questions still remain unresolved. But there will be answers!

Ugh. I mean I thought that was how to keep both vows, but I guess I hoped that I was so very wrong... idk maybe it will be okay.. I'm afraid to go on. Their first time can't be like this.. not with him all over "Astoria". x.x Not DracoxAstoria oh gosh.. .~Bites her lip, takes a deep breath, and attempts to go on with one eye open.~

[Gives standing ovation] Ah, that was fantastic. So very, very, very, very fantastic. And it finally happened! The vows being changed, Draco and Ginny finally getting together, a nice little screw-you to Astoria, some information about who Marie was, and then...Draco and Ginny, being open and real with each other, once and for all. Absolute perfection. I have kept up with this story since Chapter 1, and though it's been a long literary journey, I have enjoyed every single minute. Every update of yours never failed to make me smile.

Continue writing anything and everything, because you are a brilliant writer. You took two slightly underestimated, underrated characters from the amazing canon and gave them so much depth and personality that they seemed real.

And, this makes me sad to say, but farewell to DDD! ...but wait! There's a sequel! [does happy dance again] I'm no longer sad. Can't wait to read it, along with hopefully more of your work!!

Love you!

M :)

Author's Response: Oh... thank you, thank you! (Does Happy Standing Ovation Dance.) WONDERFUL!! review. Please choose from a large selection of Review Crowns. :)

I really, really hoped that enough loose ends were tied up by the end, considering that there were still so many that couldn't be. Draco and Ginny had to reach a certain point with each other in so many ways, but so many things also remained unresolved. We don't know what everyone else is going to do, and there's so much we still don't know about Draco's past. (But we'll find out...) So the sequel will be on its way eventually, and in the meantime, I'll work on some long-neglected other fics. :)

Author's Response: Draco definitely does need Ginny, and as you'll see, a big part of his character development is admitting that he needs her, too... but I won't give anything else away!
