I am Ann.

I've been reading fanfiction for many years now and writing it for much less. D/G stories are my first love, and I first started reading D/G fanfiction on FIA. Since then, I have branched out to reading other pairings unless they break up my most beloved ship.

What else to say? The basics: Green is my favorite color because it makes my eyes pop; I sleep with my Blackberry, and my laptop is always within reach; I like salads and chocolate, just not together; I play Pokemon when I'm bored; if I am inside, I want it to rain; and I've recently embarked on a mission to read classic novels.

Vineyard Summer by jessica k malfoy    (Reviews - 409)

Ginny Weasley is sent to stay with her grandparents until the war ends, as her parents want to keep her out of harm's way. Her grandparents have another guest, another person in hiding, and a relationship quickly blossoms between them. However, with the war and so many secrets around them, Ginny isn't sure how to make it work. Fluffy occasionally, but things can't always be perfect, can they? Decisions have to be made and consequences dealt with.

For a fleeting moment, she imagined that they would never hear from their families again, that they would remain together in Tuscany until they were old and gray, with great-grandchildren. Much to her surprise, the thought didn’t make her as sad as she thought it should.

The part with Muggle protection was hilarious. And, of course, Draco would get testy after saying "I love you."

This chapter was great. I wonder what's going to happen when Grace and Har find out about Draco's house. Grace doesn't seem like the type of person who would take it lightly.

I can't wait for an update.

It was a great chapter. I am a bit confused by Draco's behavior though. I went back and reread the section on the train to understand his behavior without any luck. He just seems to be acting that way for no reason at all. I understand being a little quiet but his all out anger wasn't necessary.

Ginny was irrational. I don't think she quite grasps the gravity of the situation around her and is still thinking with Gryffindor irrationality. At least that is what I'm getting from her attitude.

Great chapter. I can't wait for the next one. Hopefully, there is some remorse on Draco's part for his behavior at the end. It was uncalled for and made me cringe.

Update soon.

Author's Response: i am excepting far worse reviews. LOL there is an explanation, and it's coming soon. i think it's a good one. thanks for reading :D

Unstoppable by CharmedLife19    (Reviews - 225)

There are three things that truly matter to Lucius Malfoy: his family, his wealth and his blood. So of course, it was of utmost importance that his son marry a pureblood. Thus Lucius begins to arrange the perfect bride for his son. She must have both beauty and brains. She must be skillful with a wand, but with the elegance to know when to use it. When it comes down to it there is really only one woman that matches the criterion, but she comes with one problem: She’s a Weasley.

I love Lucius in this story. I was so happy to see that he wasn't evil, and didn't really have much ulterior motive. He pretty much laid out all the cards for Arthur, and Arthur went along with it.

I really love this story. I think the characters were well done. I would have loved to see more but that's because I just love it so much. It was fluffy but not unbearably so. It was just perfect.

You did a wonderful job.

Hesperides' Apple by ogygiasylph    (Reviews - 871)

When Ginny Weasley becomes Draco Malfoy's wife, he suspects neither her true identity nor her dangerous motives. But when all Hell breaks lose and their relationship takes unexpected turns, there is more at stake than preserving their marriage--namely, preserving their lives.

This fic makes me smile every time I read it. I was so happy to see it finally completed, but sad all the same. It was such a beautiful mixture of the Potter Universe and mythology. Plus it was well written, and the characters were phenomenal.

The epilogue was very sweet, and I laughed at Draco's overprotectiveness of his daughter. It's exactly like him.

Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful story.

Finally got around to giving some feedback. See? I don't forget.

I could see this happening. It's not exactly the happy ending I love :P but it was done well. I imagine that Ginny could get caught up in love and forget Draco's true nature--though I don't know if his true nature would be to kill the family of his wife . . . not after being married to her. I suppose it could though. I always have a hard time wrapping my head around insane, hardened Draco. It generally takes me an entire story to do so and this was short, but I think that worked for the piece.

It's typical of Draco to realize what he had when it's too late. You had some good lines in here too.

This was lovely.

This is maybe my fifth or sixth time rereading this story. You've really done an exceptional job with it thus far.

I think Draco and Ginny's relationship has progressed in a good way, and I love it. And Leo is adorable. I love Leo. And he took his first steps, so cute. I'll stop gushing now though.

I cannot wait to see Leo's birthday celebration. A party where Leo is barely present doesn't sound that lovely, but I can't wait nevertheless.

This entire story put a smile on my face. See: =D

I enjoyed seeing Draco in a less than attractive light--or less than for him and having to actually exercise to lose weight. There was no magical potion or wand waving that he did to make him shrink a few pounds. And I could definitely see him being addicted to sweets. Heh.

I loved the interaction throughout: Ginny as the overzealous, hard ass fitness trainer that everyone hates and Draco as the reluctant client. It provided for great banter and great fun because who doesn't like to see Ginny in a power position, which she most definitely had throughout.

I also really liked the use of Edwina. :) She was sweet.

Fantastic job! It was a great light read.

Ann

Author's Response: Thank you very much for your thoughtful review!!! Ginny was definitely inspired by a kickboxing instructor I once knew and it was tough to keep her character stern without making her outright mean. Draco was a joy to write because he was just so fallible and human, and Edwina, well, she just politely but firmly fitted herself in. I'm so happy you enjoyed my work and thanks for letting me know!
Best wishes!

Well, I love this as you well and know. I loved how Ginny one upped Astoria. This is one of those times that I like the fact she can be associated with Harry. I also just love her attitude in this.

The argument with Draco and Astoria was hilarious. I really enjoyed it. I was cringing at the lovesick Draco and am glad you've made him snap out of it.

Ann

Author's Response: Thanks so much Ann. You flatter me way too much. And Ginny will be upping Astoria in many ways. In the end, it'll be Astoria or Ginny. And I paired Astoria with Harry because I though, well, since Ginny should be with Draco, Astoria can be with Harry! I'm glad you like Astoria, though, because you're one of the only ones. And the little D/A thing at the beginning was about the most interaction you'll probably see with them. Lovesick Draco is definitely over, though. I don't really like writing him as anything but kind of cruel and taunting. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

Now Draco is just a complete and total ass, pardon my french. He had better redeem himself in some way because bringing up dead parents and buying someone's family home that's not for sale is below the belt, way below.

I'm very upset.

Author's Response: Haha, yes, Draco is definitely kind of a d-bag right now. He will be punished for his impudence, as you full well know. :) Especially for the dead parents part, which you well know about. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing! I will try to make you feel better with Ginny's revenge. It's all good.

Draco really is a bit of a brat. He's acting quite chidish and is in the need of some major maturing. I wished one of the Weasley brothers would have hexed him or stabbed him with a knife, a very very sharp one.

Author's Response: Haha, Ann, I know exactly what you're talking. Don't worry. The reason why he's such a prat right now is because I need to create some room for myself to make him mature as we go on. It's really funny that you wanted one of the Weasley brothers to stab him with a knife, though. Quite the violent gal you are, Ann. :) Thanks again for reading and reviewing!

Draco would think that Ginny would smell like farm animals. I'm happy she surprised him. I know I've said this in past reviews before, but he definitely needs to start redeeming himself before I start wishing him bodily harm--more than I already do.

That being said I laughed when he made the comment about Ginny's derriere being one of her better qualities. He had some quite humorous lines, which made me want to kill him less. But still.

And I love Ginny--nuff said.

Loved it! (Insert lots of exclamation marks, more than would fit.)

It was everything I thought it would be when reading all the teasers and so much more. Ginny's stages of denial were hilarious. She was so perfectly amusing trying to hide from him and dashing between his legs. HA!

And Draco was yummy! (And funny. Loved the chasing scene.) But all the kissing and the dream.

Did I say I loved it? It was great!

Author's Response: Aww, thank you, m'dear. I couldn't resist the smexy dream and all the smexy kisses. That's what DG is all about, right? That and the banter. ^_~
