Reviews by BlackRaven

Healers by Indigo Child    (Reviews - 8)

The Great Wizarding War is over and many have died while others have disappeared. Draco Malfoy's strange disappearance causes many rumors to spread throughout the wizarding community. Ron Weasley has his thoughts regarding Draco's whereabouts while Ginny Weasley has her own. Eventually, Ginny begins to have doubts and as a result becomes bitter and angry. Two years later, she and Draco meet in the most unlikely of places... at Healing School. Will they be able to regain the relationship they once had before he disappeared? Or will they merely be able to stand one another just enough to make it through school? Only time will tell.

Before the Storm by Glass_Mermaid    (Reviews - 491)

*Winner of the Draco/Ginny Fanfiction Award for Best Novel Length Story.* "Perhaps not everything is as black and white as it appears. Perhaps, even my father was tangled in a web of his own emotions, and in the end it spelled his death. Perhaps I too will share his fate, dying not for the cause I believe in, but for that which I cannot foresee." The ever weaving threads of our own decisions can lead to irrevocable knots, and when Lucius Malfoy is destroyed by unexpected forces, his son, Draco, is thrown into a world of political intrigue, insatiable passion and desperate gambits, opening doors he never thought to look for, and creating a life he never thought he would have as his own.

You know, I hate Hermione. In the movies, the books, and in fanfiction. I'm tired of people trying to make her into an epic character. So, even if it is just for the time being, I'm glad other readers can dislike her just as much.

Also, keep up the good work!

One Last Wish by dracosnaughtyprefect    (Reviews - 234)

She wants him to have the whole experience of pregnancy that he could never have with her, so she asks for the witch to live with him during the 9 months. What will happen when Ginny Weasley is that witch? And what will happen when she finds out that the dreams that have been haunting her sleep have everything to do with Draco?

Drug Of Choice by PerhapsMissMoon    (Reviews - 128)

The Second war is over, all ended as it should. Harry Potter defeated the Dark Lord and the world rejoiced. Seven years later Draco Malfoy finds that he must deal with death, love and life all at the same time. Meanwhile Ginny Weasley has made a name for herself in the Wizarding medical career. What happens when two worlds collide with the help of a magazine and a rather determined friend? Can old enemies form bonds of friendship? Can friendship ever become more? Just exactly how well did Ginny’s brothers teach her to fight? And what say does Draco's drug of choice have in all this?

Guilt by Muted Melody    (Reviews - 23)

It wasn’t ever supposed to happen like this. I never considered myself the kind of girl who would split up a friend and her boyfriend. But sometimes, what seemed so wrong can suddenly seem so right. What happens when we stubbornly ignore our morals, in order to keep ourselves blissfully happy, if only for a short time?

But it wouldn't be a fanfic if she got pregnant when they were happy together. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to where this goes. I love how real you've made them. There are times when I want to smack both of them upside their heads. :) I can only hope this will have a happy ending...I'd hate to see otherwise!

Wishes For Your Soul by Lirie Halliwell    (Reviews - 170)

The idea of "renting" her soul out to anyone - let alone a former Slytherin nemesis - did not sit well with Ginny Weasley. But circumstances always tend to go askew and when she finds herself in a dire position, Ginny has no choice but to relent, accepting the deal and the seven wishes offered as payment.

Draco's Dangerous Dilemma by Anise    (Reviews - 1417)

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.

Not Enough by idreamofdraco    (Reviews - 30)

“I've got a proposition, for you,” Draco started. He took a sip of tea, glancing at her through his eyelashes as she eyed him warily. “And seeing how you took delicious advantage of me in my drunken and vulnerable state last night, I don't think you have any right to say no.” ABANDONED.

I didn't notice this story when you first posted it. I remember seeing the title, and I think I assumed it was a song fic from AAR. But I really like this story! The idea of them both being trapped somewhere together, with the Order or DEs, has been done before. Nevertheless, you somehow make this exciting and fresh and unlike what I've read before. Excellent job!

Author's Response: thank you. i don't know who aar is and i despise traditional song fics, so i'm glad you read it anyway! the ending of the story was inspired by paper route (no relation to the title) but yeah, i don't do song fics! i'm REALLY glad you find it unlike things you have previously read. i think that's a huge challenge in fanfic, is trying to find a original, creative plot line!
