The Visible Invisible by Emeral_eyes    (Reviews - 116)

*Complete* "There are hundreds of invisible people in the world – the ones that you would never notice. You can see them, because they are there, but you don’t SEE them really. I realized that night that I was invisible." When you feel invisible, you'd do anything to have someone really see you; the way you've always wanted to be seen. But if the only person who actually sees you is the last person you'd ever expect it to be, what do you do? [Post Hogwarts]

What I'm most amazed about it that all the diplomacy seems to be conducted half and hour timeframes and... in coffee shops? highly unlikely. It's as if they are trying to discuss different school projects that everyone already knows how to do anyway.

You have a sentence in the first line: 'Waving at a friend behind the country,' shouldn't it be 'counter' not 'country'? I had to reread the sentence three times. lol

Reviewer: serinah Signed
Date: Apr 17, 2009 Title: Chapter 5: 5

I think I need to pint out that I actually like both, slash and domination sex. But I don't like cruelty for the sake of vengence. I do understand that Harry was not fair to Ginny, buy her revenge is really so much worse. I loath her here and I can't respect Draco for doing this. If she told him to jump of the building, would he? No way in hell. He didn't prove his love for Ginny, he proved how inconsiderate he is towards Harry. If a person is somewhat dim or desperate it still doesn't justify any cruelty towards him.

I'm in the middle of the 8th chapter and I don't understand. Why are Draco and Ginny pushing everybody away? Ginny is acting as if Hermione-Harry-Ron have gravely offended her because 'she is standing up to them'. It's not exactly canon but it's not explained here either. I can understand that they've been ignoring her, but since in your story they've never really been friends, I don't see what's the big deal it. Ginny acts as if they've betrayed her. How? And Draco is being a bigot again. why is he acting as if he's better than everybody else but Ginny? Why does he shun Millicent like that, what did she do but be friendly? D/G are acting us-against-the world. It's not very healthy and I don't understand why. I hope it will be explained later better, because so far it's a mystery.

Reviewer: serinah Signed

Ibsolutely love this story, except for a minor little detail. Draco and Ginny are nasty to everyone they used to be friends with and your story does not actually explain why. Here it just seems that they are simply being nasty for the sake of being nasty which is out of character for Ginny generally and out of character for the Draco you are trying to portray in this story. Otherwise it has been a very well thought out plot and characterisation so far. I hope they stop being an island soon, because now they are being real teens in the worst sense. (Which in my opinion is not believable after the war they've gone through.) What I like the most about the story? Scenes from Draco's pov I think and the way D and G trust each other. I haven't decided yet if it's ooc or not, but I like it. :) Actually, I want a favour to ask. If you are still writing in any fandome at all and happen to spot my review, message me a link where I can read something you've written after this story. I bet it is amasing. Cheers! :)

Okay, I do realise that Draco and Ginny feel that the people around them have never cared about them, but if it is true for Draco, then his own past actions are actually the reason and I'm pretty sure that a person who's killed his own father and is feeling guilty has to realise that. In case of Ginny, on the other hand the idea of no one paying her any attention or real concideration is so much alternative reality that it should have been explained somehow (her family has always been a cold one, Harry and Hermione are self-absorbed after everything that has happened to them, or whatever). Right now it all feels too artificial or then a technique to make teenage readers to sympathise (oh yes, I know the feeling - no one really cares about me either - which is wrong most of the time, of course). I jsut wanted to clarify my point. Good story anyways. :)

I've read the story many times and still love it. One thing bugs me though. I have the feeling that in your mind it actually has a sequel. Are you ever going to write it? If it's not to much bother, please answer me! :)

Author's Response: Hi! I haven't checked my reviews here in forever so I didn't see this until now. Originally I had a sequel in mind for this fic, but it never really got off the ground and I stopped writing in HP about 5 years ago so unfortunately it's pretty much doomed for good. I'm glad you enjoyed TPDGA so much, though!

I haven't checked if you did write a sequel or not on this. I loved the story, Draco's inner conflict was very realistic and he was very in character imo. Ginny's final rejection though comes somehow out of the blue for me because through her reactions I get that she really cares for Draco and as he pleads with her there's only 2 ways she would react truthfully imo.

1- She rejects him, cries angry tears and walks out of his life but she does not give him so rational of a reason. She might say that they don't and won't ever love each other. Maybe even lie that she would never love a scumbab like him to get him let it go or something.
2- She agrees weakly and hates herself for it. She agrees because his the father, because she really kind of loves him and because she somehow believes in him even if she can't really see him as someone capable of romantic love.

So there, I don't think that your story ended where it really ended even if you haven't written a sequel with a happy ending.
