Lovely story! Thanks!
Gain love this story already!
I forsee Draco having full custody of that baby in the near future... I was watching the movie Casino he other night and Ginny reminds me so much of Sharon Stone's character in that movie! She's a liar and she beautiful and full of problems, and Draco is like Robert Deniro's character, the weathly bad ass who has a soft spot for this broken girl. And both men thought a baby woud fix everything. I feel like Draco will probably spend the rest of his life forgiving Ginny for all of her mistakes because she is the mother of his child...
But hopefully her baby will make her stop living in a fantasy world and she can realize how good she has it now. =)
I found it on the front page of this site and I just had to read it. I tried to stop but ended up reading it all in one sitting. I really loved your story and I loved how you portrayed their romance because it was realistic, they weren't perfect people and so their falling in love wasn't this perfect thing. Great story =)
please tell me this isn't the ending :(
couldn't you do an epilogue please?
Hallelujah! I did not think that they would manage a happy ending, because Ginny is so craptastically excellent at screwing everything up. I was SO ANGRY with her last chapter, when she tore up her letter. Oh, man. Thank god your Draco is so patient, and loved her enough to wait and take her back. I loved this fic--loved your truly screwed-up Ginny, loved the way their relationship developed, and I loved that they got a happy ending. Yay!!!
Great fic !!!
ginny finally! finally! wised up! thank goodness! great story! simply amazing!
marvelous! i really can't say more :)
is it finished?? sniff..more please
Oh, sweetness! Can there be more?
Oh no; please let them make up. I'm so sad for poor Draco.
Aw poor Draco! I'll take care of him!
How depressing. Draco, save her! Hehe...
That was an amazing ending! I was so mad at Ginny because she was being so stupid but everything worked out in the end. Of course they are meant to be together! So good...amazing job!
I used to be stronger than this, Ginny told herself. But it was a lie. She had never been strong, though her manipulation of the universe had always been her way of proving otherwise.
this is absolutely gorgeous. and the rest of your story is as well, however painfully so. you've crafted people here, and not just static characters.
that was a very beautiful story i really loved it
Quite possibly my favorite fic ever.
It was absolutely beautiful and wonderfully written. Everyone seemed so real.
I feel like Ginny's conversation with Harry could have been less abrupt, but it served its purpose and was wonderful all the same.
you have to write more. if you don't i'll just die
So... wasn't Ginny going to carry on with the plan? Why the sudden drop of plot? (Not to sound rude; I'm merely curious.) Also, I was wondering why you had such a dramatic lapse of time between the time period of the last chapter and this one?
Author's Response: Sigh. I think I need to rethink the division between chapters seven and eight. When I wrote this story, it was just one long story....no chapter breaks...and I think it reads much better that way. Not very much time has elapsed, really, and I don't feel as though the plot is dropped, it's just neatly signed off. If I had continued, I might have ended up with a thousand-page beast detailing their marriage, the raising of their son, etc., and that wasn't the goal of the contest (nor was that within my time constraints). Yes, Ginny was going to carry on with the plan, but as you read, she becomes rather disillusioned with Harry at long last, and that sort of "breaks the spell"--she realizes her mistake. Sorry if it didn't read very well, however!
I can't believe this fic only has 65 reviews...
Obviously readers don't know a good thing when they have it! You have such a way with words...paragraph to paragraph flows effortlessly--When I'm reading I feel like I'm swimming in the most gorgeous pool and the sun's out and I'm just floating along...really, I can't describe how much your work provokes me to become a better writer. I guess I could say that each word you pick is selected with the utmost care, as if you are only allowed twenty words per paragraph, each is loaded with such expression and emotion, it is as if you've written a 100 million words. Though at times I dislike your Ginny, I can still understand where she is coming from. You're Draco is complicated and alone, and it is refreshing to see him love her more...well towards the beginning anyway. I don't know if this is the end of the story, but really, I cannot wait for more of your writing. And I mean. Thanks for writing something so beautiful.
