While at the Ministry’s Auror training academy, Ginny Weasley and Draco Malfoy learn that being friends might be harder than being foes. Or, “And that’s why you don’t teach your worst enemy lessons.”Category: Long and Completed
This is such a beautiful story. The character development was really well done and your writing is so engaging. Just, wow.
Ginny Weasley wants nothing more than to focus on her Quidditch career and have a fun time doing it - but between the Ministry of Magic's plans to implement new marriage regulations, slanderous news articles by Rita Skeeter and a pair of irritating Slytherins, she just can't catch a break.Category: Works in Progress
A feminist take on the Marriage Law trope, with DG for good measure.

I'm so excited with where this is going. You've thought this out really well! I still wished you'd gone into the implementation of the law a little more, because I'm quite curious, but I expect you'll get to that all in good time. Ginny seems a bit more canon in this chapter in my opinion. Although a very rash person, I think she knows when to exhibit restraint and I really liked seeing that in this chapter. Overall, this fic has really good writing, a thought-out plot, and great representation of the characters. I also love that since you're posting it here, it's obvious that Ginny and Draco will have some romantic involvement by the end of the story but you've chosen not to make that the focus, which I think works really well for your story and is, quite honestly, very refreshing. Please update soon!
Author's Response: Haha, I'm excited too; hopefully it lives up to your (and everyone else's, and my own) expectations. ;)
I have some ideas for how exactly the law will work - and, more importantly, why it would work - which I should get to in the next chapter or two (hopefully I'm not over-committing here). I am basing parts of this story off cliche MLF vehicles - and hopefully translating them into something plausible at the same time - so you'll see references to that kind of thing throughout the story.
Any irrationality on Ginny's part was intentionally written by me; I am totally aware of the fact that in the first chapter it's a little OTT, but the general idea is that she's a very passionate person and this will (hopefully) come across in later chapters. But I'm glad my attempt at capping a lid on her in this chapter was to your satisfaction. :)
Thank you so much for reviewing - I have big plans for how these two get together. I just hope I can pull it off! ;)
I find this really interesting, although I wished you explored the reasoning behind the implementation if the law a bit more. I love your portrayal of Ginny and I really hope you continue the story!
Author's Response: I'm hoping that when I write some more we can get a little more in depth detail and discussion over the law, particularly since the law itself is such a point of contention for me when people write these stories - thank you for reviewing and I'm glad you've enjoyed it so far!
