When I read the line,"Ginny pressed her hips into his, and he bit down hard on his lip. Her hands fell from his shoulders and moved towards a zipper" I knew you had to be influenced by brand new. Then I read the rest and i kept thinking, wow, I wonder if anyone else is catching the allusions here. But then at the bottom you wrote the lyrics. Great job, i love brand new and I love this one-shot. Thanks for writing.

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.

Excellent job! I think you handled the situation wonderfullly... I was very frightened of Draco, and throughout this whole scene i was on the edge of my seat... I'm just wondering how draco can redeem himself from such cruelties...

Author's Response: uhu... "cruelties"... notice that so far we haven't heard his side of the story. >:] Thank you for reviewing :) I like knowing how readers respond to my characters--it helps me adjust them + the plot!

What a lovely surprise! I was so excited to find that you updated, and even more excited to find that this chapter is just as good, if not better, than the rest! This story has taken a more interesting turn as things begin to fall into place, and your characterization of both Draco, Ginny, and Narcissa are consistent yet develop believably throughout the time line. All the mythology and the arts that influence this story only add to its elegance. I'll be waiting for the next chapter! But by the way, how many chapters are you planning on making this story? : )

Author's Response: Let me put it this way: I was planning on making this story 10 chapters. 20, tops. Now I\'m leaning towards 30, but I don\'t really like stories with endless chapters, so I\'ll definitely be wrapping this up--eventually. Then I had kind of planned on abandoning this, but two plot bunnies attacked me and so I might stick around a bit longer. Thanks for your review. I really appreciate the depth and precision of it!

Another well written chapter! In the beginning, I found it a little hard to keep up with the conversation between Leo, Izha, and Gin...but I think that's because I have to reread some older chapters! I loved how you tied in the vine from last chapter; it was really fitting. I also loved the idea of Delices de Diane--how cool to have a private booth with limitless dessert options! Yay! The return of Shehzin! I'm glad Gin's getting back to normal, and the part where she hears Draco and Pansy speaking really left me feeling good about their future relationship, and ridiculously happy that Draco had walked away from Pansy. But there was one quote/line in here that shows me what a talented writer you really are: "How easy it was, to break things; how easy to destroy what made you soar, slating yourself for the inevitable tumble back down to reality." WOW!! That quote alone ties in philosophy, mythology..D/G situation... just..WOW. :) I'm really hoping (actually foaming at the mouth, at this point) that they will be a little more hands on D/G in the coming chapters...am I right?? Well, anyway, this was a wonderful chapter! And the twins... I can't wait for that! Thanks so much for writing!

Author's Response: wow... thank you for that review! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying this (although I can understand how the plethora of characters makes it difficult to follow) There will definitely be more D/G in the next chapter. In fact, there should be only D/G, taking a very needed trip in... a Pensieve...

Another great chapter. Though in the beginning it felt a bit rushed, I understand you wanted to get to the pensieve as fast as possible. Once inside, the images were powerful and appropriate. I liked seeing a more vulnerable Draco for once, if only for a few scenes. Back towards the beginning with the Wuthering Heights quote...well, you just made my day missy, because that is one of my favorite books ever. Ever. And thanks for picking a quote other than, "my love for Linton...," after all, the book does have more than one memorable line. As always, I find the mythology both enlightening and creative, and you are able to send your message home through other pathways beside common narrative. Just a few questions. Exactly how far along pregnant is Ginny? And have you decided a definite ending to this story, chapter wise? Thanks again, I adore your unique and intelligent voice.

Date: Jun 20, 2007 Title: Chapter 28: 27. Old friends

Cute chapter. I'd don't know what's up but this chapter has a different feel to it...it's almost lacking that spark that your other chapters capture so effortlessly..maybe it's just summer claiming your attention? Chapters that involve almost complete dialogue are sometimes hard for me to get through, so that could be it. You're still one of fav writers so don't take these comments too seriously. Of course, I find the mythic and historic allusions enchanting. How far along pregnant is Ginny?? I think the problem I have with this chapter is that I just miss Draco and Ginny just being Draco and Ginny together in a way they haven't been for many many chapters. Can't wait for the next chapter!!

Shall Rise Again by Peki    (Reviews - 293)

Sequel to Break in the sun (till the sun breaks down). For a few blissful hours, the differences between them did not matter. But as Draco and Ginny struggle with their budding relationship, they must soon discover that many things separate them still - family, friends and society as well as their own explosive tempers. The future they want for themselves comes at a price, and reconciling what they each want out of life is a challenge that might just break them apart...

Most Excellent! I've read the whole thing and you have a very good hold on your characters. Your Draco and Ginny are very unique and I can feel the passion they have for each other. This story is exciting and I can't wait for more!! : )

Author's Response: Thank you so much! 'Unique' is a wonderful compliment :) I'm very pleased you think so!

Wow! This was soooo good and surprising! I thought for sure this was a story from Draco's perspective, not Harry's. Beautifully written, crafty and romantic. I have to tell you, I'm so glad it was Draco with Ginny in the end!

Author's Response: Well, I tried to make it seems as though it was from Draco\'s view, without actually lying to the reader, so I\'m glad it worked out. Thanks for the review!

A Tale of Two Matchmakers by Kerichi    (Reviews - 527)

Romance for three couples when Blaise and Luna use Shakespearean styled matchmaking to hook up Ginny and Draco. There's Much Ado about...something!

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill award for Best Romance- Non Canon on Mugglenet

* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is.*

Well done! You are developing the characters slowly and believably .. I can't wait to read what happens next! More L/H please their small interaction was adorable!

Author's Response: Terry and Blaise may have fallen hard and fast (at least on her part, lol) but Draco and Ginny are going down swinging, :D. As for Harry, he may be Luna\'s Mr. Right, or he may be Mr. Right Now. ^_~

Ah!! This chapter leaves me wanting so much more! It's getting interesting, but is antagonizing the way this story is moving so slowly towards its destination--you are evil! ;) Give Luna some luv! Can't wait for next chapter!

Author's Response: I sent ch 8 to the beta last night, so I\'m crossing fingers it will be polished up in a few days! Next chap is when the romance gets off the ground, so to speak, with Dancing with Faeries! ^_^

This was a great chapter! I love Blaise and Terry, the Draco/Ginny is accurately displayed... but I'm finding the Harrry/Luna front completely non-existant! PLEASE update soon with a little more ... physical L/H!!!

Author's Response: Oh dear....how can I put this? Harry is the boy a girl thinks is \'the one\' until another boy comes along. Out of the three girls, Luna is the one who has to figure out who is Mr. Right, and who is Mr. Right Now. It isn\'t always easy...but it builds character!

Reviewer: MK Richie Signed
Date: Jan 05, 2007 Title: Chapter 13: Affection and Aftermath

Another nice chapter! However, sometimes I find myself confused by the paragraphs when you suddenly switch to someone else's thoughts or voice and I have to go back to reread. This subtracts slightly from the great idea you've got here. Your very creative, don't get me wrong! Also, the story gets a bit draggy when you keep going back to the same arguments.. I feel like I've read about the same dancing fiasco for the last three installments! Maybe try making your chapters a littler longer, even if it means you can't update so soon. Please keep going and continue the story, you improve with each chapter.. in fact, this is one of my favorite D/G shakespeare reworks. *hides from glares and hopes she isn't hated*

Author's Response: All concrit is welcome, and the chapters do get longer as the fic goes on. This site doesn\'t support page breaks, but when you see double paragraph spaces marked with dashes, that signals change from one pov to the next and the first line afterwards tells you who the pov person is and I stay in that pov until the next change marked with another set of double paragraph spaces. Only Draco, Ginny, Luna and Blaise have povs and they revolve in order depending on plot, which will have events from time to time that characters respond to and deal with the consequences from, like real life but more dramatic. ^_^

That last part was really something special! This was a great chapter and I'm really looking foward to more!! I do enjoy how you tie in the shakespeare stuff and the old mythic ways.. it makes the story more realistic. Keep it up!

Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! There\'s a mix of Norse and Celtic mythology coming up at Yule. I think you\'ll like it and I hope to update faster so the story will get there sooner rather than later! ^_^

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.

Date: Jun 10, 2007 Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 11: Miscalculated

Another great chapter! I'm really looking forward to finding out how all of this ends up. I actually like your Hermione, which is a rare thing! And I like how Harry, though he is supposed to be the 'bad' boyfriend to Ginny, is a jerk, but still a believable Harry who has to defeat Voldemort. A lot of fics feature him as being cruel and stupid and horrible to Ginny, but here, he is just a confused teenager and all around git, but I could still see them ending up as friends in the end. And your Draco is very very attractive in his intelligence and his subtle attraction to Ginny. Thanks for writing! Oh, and I couldn't help but notice on the FIA forums you talked about a Cruel Intentions fic...which I've been dreaming of writing myself for centuries, except I'm too busy and get distracting by reading so many fics hahah..anyway, I was wondering if you were still working on it and when we should look for it?? : ) And also, if you were looking for any help? ; )

Author's Response: I am still planning on working out the Cruel Intentions fic...help would be great! Anyhow. Thanks for the review, and I\'m glad you like my Hermione and find Harry to be not a total cruel, stupid jerk...but just a stressed out teenage boy jerk. =D

Date: Feb 22, 2011 Title: Chapter 19: Chapter 18: Alarmed

It's so good to see you back! I have to admit that I did not read this chapter yet, but I wanted to leave you some encouragement and warm fuzzies for having had the courage to return and fall in love with D/G again. I want to re-read this story over from the beginning before I read this chapter, but I just don't have the time at the moment. I was wondering what inspired you to come back and if you had any other new stories planned? I do recall this story have a lot of great moments. Best of luck!

Author's Response: Thank you for the advanced warm fuzzies!  I hope when you got around to it you enjoyed it!  I never actually intended to leave - life just kind of blew up in my face.  I kept up with stories I was following, I just didn't have time to sit down and write (though I did finish planning).  When I finally made enough time for myself to start writing again, my style was different and there was a ton of stuff that I wanted to fix.  So I decided to fix everything first (that took the better part of a year).  Then I started on the new chapter, which took about 3 months to get right - because I hadn't written anything new in ages and ages and ages.  While school is in session, I'm hoping to update every two months, then once a month minimum in the summer.  I don't have anything new planned in particular, though when I'm stuck I usually write a flufflet to get in the groove again.  Perhaps I'll start intregrating those into longer pieces that can also be posted.  Thank you for the encouragement and luck!
