The Hidden Doorway by kjcp    (Reviews - 201)

Ginny, Harry, and Draco have been leading separate lives for years, but then a disturbing case involving mind manipulation brings them all together. Rows break out, animosity and hatred grow, people die, and friendship is tested. In the midst of all that, is it possible for romance between two unlikely people to bloom?

just so good, i wonder how they got together? is there a prequel to this that you have not told us just yet?:) Since they are yet to say L word, it seems to me that is was a bit dramatic wedding/marriage so far.

Crossing into Chaos by Emeral_eyes    (Reviews - 512)

*Completely AU* In a world where Voldemort was never defeated, only a few things matter: pureblood, money and power. All that Ginny Weasley wanted was to survive her 7 years at Hogwarts, a school where the children of the richest and most powerful wizards dominate over others. Denying her natural instincts, she managed to make it into her 6th year without offending any of the cruel and powerful Slytherins - especially that horrible Draco Malfoy. Until one day, she crosses a line, and her peaceful existence is shattered forever. A story filled with adolescent drama, clash of the classes, angst, jealousy, ridiculous pride and love triangles (and squares).

I like dosed level of fluff:)) just reading your reply to one of the reviews: will they come back to question of price? “Everyone could be bought"?

Author's Response: Ten points to Gryffindor!

Reviewer: Marinka Signed
Date: Nov 19, 2012 Title: Chapter 20: Jumpers and dragons

Thank you for updating, it is great that you have not abandoned it. I like Draco's possessiveness and how Ginny gradually appreciates him more, it feel as very natural progression and not forced in any way. A question: HYD strikes me as very cute and fluffy in some way and CIC is different, fluffiness is not there (good thing in my books :), so will you follow the HYD story line or will you change it? I hope this is generic enough question and it will not be spoiler for anybody

Author's Response: Hi there, thanks for commenting! And nope, your question isn't really a spoiler. While there definitely is a healthy dose of fluff in HYD, I actually find the story a bit dark - I mean, kids kidnapping other kids and beating them to a pulp, the main love interest basically going on a hunger strike in order to be with the girl he loves, amnesia... Which fits quite nicely with the CIC universe, where everything is pretty dark. Draco and Ginny have their own kind of fluffiness (his telling her that she's plain looking is his way of telling her she looks pretty, his way of spoiling her is to kidnap her for a weekend getaway, etc), but they aren't going to be the cuddles & giggles kind of couple. And now, we've reached the point in the HYD narrative where the REALLY dark stuff starts to creep in, so I would predict that things don't really get all that fluffy from here on out. There will be pockets of it (otherwise, how can you support this couple if it's all tragedy and tears??), but not a great deal. They're teenagers from opposite factions falling in love during a war.

Redeeming the Dragon by thelovinspoonful    (Reviews - 350)

"Perhaps it really didn't matter what he was, perhaps it just mattered that he was." Unexpected events lead to unexpected relationships. Can one person be so important to the destruction of Voldemort? Nothing happens by chance, but sometimes, life might be simpler if it did.

simply beautiful! Thank you.

Author's Response: Chaos was one of the first HP fanfics I ever read and I loved it so much that it inspired me to start writing my own stories. I'm a little embarrassed that I wrote a fanfic about someone else's fanfic, but it is definitely a tribute to EmeralEyes for her excellent work. Glad you appreciated it!

Contractual Obligations by gidge_8    (Reviews - 751)

Selling herself into a marriage contract, Ginny finds herself playing a deadly game, ultimately pitting her husband against her lover and a father against his son. Many twists and turns, depth and evil characters - and a long story of sweet and true love.

New! Epilogue is up! Yes, I know, the story has been "complete" for a couple of years, but this ending has been partially written for a long time and it ties up some loose ends.

Not This Time by antidote    (Reviews - 52)

A knock sounded at her door, and Ginny smiled slightly. Five years of absolute closeness, yet Draco refused to be ‘vulgar.’ Knocking on the door, he said, was more honorable than simply bursting into her home or appearing in her fireplace. Giving her the privacy she needed, he said, was more upstanding than forcing his company on her when unwanted.

By Firelight by Rebecca Ripple    (Reviews - 49)

Barely sixteen years old and fearing for his mother's life, Draco stepped up in his father's absence to take his place amongst the Death Eaters. The following year at Hogwarts School was, without a doubt, the hardest he had ever endured. Now seventeen, the young Malfoy seeks to keep safe all he loves by doing the opposite, and taking the golden advice Albus Dumbledore had left him minutes before his death.

Draco's Dangerous Dilemma by Anise    (Reviews - 1418)

All Ginny wants is to get the upper hand just once with drool-worthy hunk of man candy and callous playboy Draco Malfoy before he moves on to his next careless conquest. So how did this simple plan lead to time travel, nefarious plots involving the most infamous whorehouse in the wizarding world, and the teenaged Draco’s achingly sweet, chocolate-flavored kisses? Even Draco Malfoy was innocent once, as Ginny learns all too well…

Chapter ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN Quote of the Day:

THE LAST CHAPTER

The minutes ticked by, long enough for Ginny to know that against all reason, all common sense, she still wanted impossible things from him. But she would leave. Even after today, even when her body ached from him and for him, when she could feel that he had begun to shape her to him, she would turn around and leave him. I will, I will, she thought.

“You don’t understand,” said Draco.

“Oh?” Ginny said stiffly. “At least he hadn’t touched her, she thought. She would not be able to find the strength to pull herself away from him, and she knew it.
