This is a great chapter. I like the ending line. It brings the chapter to a close in a satisfying way.

I like Draco's reaction to Ginny's bad back - I guess that someone who hasn't seen the close sibling relationships wouldn't see why Ginny so easily brushes off the rough-and-tumble accidents. It's this insight into Draco's background that makes this stand out from the many other 'Draco doesn't want to be a Death Eather', Hogwarts-era fics.

I love Running Draco and Ginny. What a wonderful beginning. I like how you've got into Draco's mind about the whole Dark Lord thing. Fabulous beginning!

o i'd love to go run with drakie-poo. i always adore reading about his bare arm! yay! can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Ha-ha I hear you there. I definitely wouldn't mind Draco as a running partner. Unfortunately for me, my running partner is my roommate...she's good-looking and all, lol, but I don't swing that way. Thanks for reviewing!

Great start!! The beginning was a bit cliche, with the idea of Draco watching Ginny from afar, but I like the idea of Ginny as a runner and the nonchalant way you set them up as running partners worked, too. I'm glad their first encounter wasn't perfect, though Draco's reaction to Ginny's childhood adventures was classic. "They hurt you?" Definitely an only child.

Author's Response: I can't help it, I'm a sucker for guys watching from afar. Although, only in fiction. Because this guy used to always watch me when I ran and it was just stalker-ish and creepy. *shiver* But gotta love the only childs, they do not get that you live to make your siblings miserable while growing up, ha-ha.

This is a great story. I personally, hate running, as I am probably the least athletic person in the school, but I like walking, and.. Uh...... This was just so great. Please write more.

Author's Response: Aww, running is fun. Or maybe I'm just weird. I didn't like it when I first started doing it, but I really love it now. If you are really mad or have a lot of pent up frustration (er, sexual or otherwise) then it can help out a lot.

That's why I used to run...I think I'll start again tomorrow morning.

Author's Response: Awesome! Are you going to run outside or in a gym? Because if you are hard core and go outside then I truly commend you! I'm too much of a weather chicked to run out in the cold, though, so I'm the person running only to get to the gym, ha-ha.

Whew, for a moment I thought this was a one-shot! This is great so far...those Hogwarts guys and gals need some music in their lives! Am looking forward to the next chapter :)

Author's Response: It was a one-shot, lol, until I got bored and decided that I didn't want it to be. And I couldn't agree more, they need some music other than that weird choir that was in PoA. Seriously, that choir just came out of no where. But, yeah, I have to trudge all around campus for classes, so I would kill myself if I didn't have an MP3 player to entertain me.

I loved this story! It was so simple, yet not. If that makes any sense. I think what I really liked most was how not much happened, but there was still such depth to the characters. Like, we learn about Ginny's bad back, and it's just something that everyone has, you know? Not bad backs, but scars or whatever. I'm sure you know, you did write it. ^_^ And Draco was really good. I love how you made him not want to be a Death Eater but gave him good reasons and stuff. I dunno, it was just plain good! ~B

Author's Response: Thanks! And as much as I love evil! Draco, I just couldn't bring myself to make him a Death Eater in this one, ha-ha. I'm such a sap.

Hey! Great start, but running? Running is the bane of my existence. I swim. And play tennis. And. . .ugh. . .play basketball. You feel obligated when you're the tallest girl at school. But Gods, just thinking about runnning is giving me a headache. Its fine in basketball and tennis but to run just to run. . .sounds like my cousin. Until she hurt her achilles tendon, that is. Ah well. Poor Gin, a tree root? OWWWIE!!! I really hope Draco's going to hurt tomorrow b/c he pushed himself to hard! That would be hilarious. Can't wait for the next chapter! - The Lovely Lioness

Author's Response: When I was home over break I totally ran just to run, but unfortunately for me it was twenty degrees out with lots of snow and I wasn't lucky enough to have a warming charm. So, yeah, I basically froze my ass off and now am less inclined to run. Ha-ha must be nice to be tall. I was one of the shortest girls in my school, I got so sick of it. They wouldn't have let me play b-ball if I begged.
