Oh my, poor Ginny. You're right, she does have some growing up to do and I'm glad that you're taking your time with this story. Each of your characters are so well drawn but mysterious at the same time. I love your Draco and I hope we see more of him soon. I'll be waiting for the next chapter. I can't wait to find out what else you have planned.

Draco's Dark Cloud by Mynuet    (Reviews - 56)

One morning, Draco Malfoy woke up to find himself half-drowning. He sat up quickly, water running off the planes of his face as he tried to decipher the cause of this nocturnal aquatic apparition. He was in his private room at Hogwarts. Peeves did not appear to be in the vicinity. He looked up to see if perhaps his bed's canopy had developed a leak when he saw it. Against all the laws of sense and probability, a tiny grey cloud was hovering just above his head, sending out an inexhaustible amount of rain.

I'm amazed at how well I was able to imagine this little cloud over his head and its all due to your wonderful writing. I've become addicted to reading your stories and constantly crave a little Mynuet fix. After each one, I wonder how it could possibly get better and each time it does.

I don’t know what you were worrying about. When I first read the chapter, I couldn’t believe the writing. It is much different than how you normally write but was amazing nonetheless. You were able to completely integrate the mythology into the story so that I got a very hazy inking of what was to happen, but it was still a mystery. I know you love leaving cliffhangers and this was definitely a biggie and I am dying to know where you’re taking this story. The whole premise is so original and I cannot wait to see how this story progresses. My fanfiction brain has just been stretched in a completely new direction. Seriously, whatever the hell you’re doing, keep doing it, and often. This may be blasphemous to say on this site, but at this point, I don’t even care if you have a D/G romance going on because I’m just so interested in the story line itself.

Assertive Ginny strikes again. Its great to see her go after what she wants. It was sad the way it ended in the last chapter but I'm sure you have some delicious way of making it work out for them in the end. your characterizations were lovely. Its always nice to see Draco in top form

What a unique take on Harry's feelings towards Ginny. The way you were able to express how he felt towards the Weasleys was very well done and, I think, extremely accurate. Great job on another wonderful chapter.

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Draco Malfoy, and a plan that involves them all. Where there is possession, there is manipulation, and where there is evil, there is sacrifice.

This story was great. You've really written the characters well and I'm way impressed with your Sorting Hat song. keep up the good work

Author's Response: Thank you! I actually made the Sorting Hat song up during the summer and finally have a worthy cause to use it. :)

ohhh poor draco. It must be mortifying being paraded about by Weasley men stark naked. How I would have loved to have been a little fly on the wall of the burrow that day. You've captured all the characters so wonderfully and I am desparate to know what little punishment Arthur Weasley has in store for him. I doubt he'll let him off the hook too easily.

Author's Response: Oh Draco won't be let off the hook easily. Though his mortification could have been punishment enough - I'm sure he's just waiting for the ground to open up at this point. As for being a fly on the wall - wouldn't we all have liked to have spied on proceedings ;)

This was such an excellent spin on the tried and true "Get Ginny into bed" story. I love her nonchalance and how she was able to manipulate the situation to her favor. Bravo Ginny

The Lush Life by Vesanmyn    (Reviews - 657)

A Vesica/Mynuet Collaboration. If Ginny had even the slightest inkling of what the day would bring, she probably would have called in sick. A disastrous press conference proved to be no match for the spin doctoring talents of Lush's chief and Ginny finds herself catapulted from being a lowly intern to the very eye of the storm, living a double life as a careerwitch and glamorous front woman for a racy new line. Throw in a few A-list events, a few dozen crises, an endless promotional tour with her new co-worker and the last person she wanted to spend time with, and a mystery waiting back home that neither of them may be able to solve….Every day's an adventure when you're living the Lush Life!

Date: Jan 12, 2005 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter One – Narcissa’s Assets

What an interesting take on Narcissa. It's always refreashing to see her in an an assertive role rather than simply hovering behind Lucius's wand. The characters were all well written and you've taken an idea that I would never have thought to apply to fanfiction and written such a strong story in just one chapter. Poor bare-assed Ginny. Her pride may have been wounded but I'm sure she'll see some just compensation later at the hands of the Malfoy heir. Can't wait to read the rest.

Author's Response: Ves says: Stop it; I'm blushing! Originally the story started with the line about Narcissa flashing everyone - I don't think the story could have gone wrong from there. Myn says: Nudity has a way of being a promising start, yeah. Myn further says: And Narcissa has to be assertive, really. Can you see a wilting flower standing up to Lucius and telling him where to send their son to school? I think not. So, that's our story and we're sticking to it.

I'm so glad to see that you've started something new. I've always enjoyed your prose and each chapter of this story was beautifully written. Your Draco is ever intriguing and ever perplexing. I'm so curious about his motives and where Ginny belongs in all of this. Please continue. It's so refreashing to see them taken out of the context of Hogwarts and England.
