The fuck? Dude. The fuck? That is not how you end a story. I want more of THIS story. I loved it.
I would have liked to SEE the development of his feelings, because it's clear that he had them before she did, but they appeared kind of suddenly after a time gap. It wasn't jarring but... I'm not sure if I'm articulating what I mean very well. There may not even have been a great way to do it since the story's told entirely from her point of view.
I really liked this story and I wish we could have gotten the answers to the questions you left us with.
I really liked this! You managed to fit so much in a one-shot, and while I would have liked to have seen some parts expanded on, I was still left feeling satisfied. I liked what you did with Draco and Ginny's relationship, as well as Narcissa's character. The ending was very nice!
Author's Response: Thanks! There definitely are some weaker spots - it was written for exchange, and I had a time limit. But it's one of the favorite things I wrote. Glad you like it!
I agree. Most definitely in need of a sequel! That was absoltuely fantastic though. I realy love how you portrayed their relationship before they got together, especially how Ginny thinks Draco is trying to something else but she's not understanding. Those moments were wonderful. It's hard to choose a favorite part, but I really liked the scene where Draco was trying to explain Briana to Ginny. You did such a great job of capturing both of them in that scene. Wonderful!
This story is so excellent. Except it doesn't seem to end!
I'm glad I came across this story. It was written very realistically on how their relationship would be. I also liked how you left it open-ended as well. gj
thats it! nothing more! what happens next?!?!
This is one of the more realistic scenarios that have been written. I thought it was very sweet. Yay!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed.
Oh I LOVE this story. I read it like 3 times on LJ over Christmas. Its just so good - lovely plot, chracterisation, sex. It just flows so nicely. And this line - "she knew deep down into her most secret places that she wanted him in the forever kind of way", just makes me squeal. Fantastic job!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I actually questioned that line's relative cheesiness, but decided it was okay after I realized how it felt like it was influenced by some of my favorite literature.
SEQUEL! SEQUEL! SEQUEL! SEQUEL!
Author's Response: Aw, yeah, I don't think there will be one. It's a story about beginnings, you know? But I'm glad that you liked it. : )
Oh my god! This is so incredible! I really really hope you write a sequel. I want to see Harry suffer a bit and Draco and Narcissa make it up to her.
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you enjoyed! I don't think I'll write a sequel, but stranger things have happened. I don't think Harry really needs to suffer, but in the epilogue I'm seeing in my head Draco and Narcissa are definitely there. : )
I really understand why this was nominated for Most in Need of a Sequel. I thought this was such a wonderfully sweet fic. And yes the kiss was NICE!! I hope to soon see a sequel to this.
Author's Response: Aw thanks! I doubt there will be a sequel, but there might be an epilogue.
NOoooooo! That was an evil cliff hanger. I am cursing your name at the moment. If I check and find out this was a one shot you will hear screaming and ranting. Oh, and this story was superb. The opening scene was hot. The emotions were great. I'm thoroughly impressed.
Author's Response: Uh oh... yep, that's all there is. *covers ears* Glad you liked it!
oh wow. i really loved this, and i hope that maybe you'll add more to it later. i was kinda sad when i realized the status said "completed" :( maybe an epilogue? :D
Author's Response: There might maybe be an epilogue, but I lost the urge and I'm moving soon, so... I didn't want to get anyone's hopes up. Glad you liked it!
Hmm, very intriquing. I look forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Sadly, this is a oneshot. : (
Really, I love this story probably more than I should love a story. :)
The ending still fills me with absolute glee, by the way.
Author's Response: I won't lie, I got to that and it just felt like the ending, and I was rereading it later and I think there was a bit of evil laughter involved on my part.
*pets the shiny banner* I've got this banner that tells me how much you like the story, lol! Also, you are awesome. The end.
That was really beautifully written. You definitely took the prompt and flew away with it :D I think I would have liked a few more scenes in the time gaps. There was a big jump from their teasing banter to becoming friends, and it would have been nice to see a bit more snark there, but then maybe the snark belonged in a different story, and more of it would have seemed a bit awkward. The jumps probably emphasise the point of the story, so with each leap of the story you feel the "vertigo" feeling :D I love your way of writing- the metaphors, attention to detail and emotion. I think it's obvious that you put your heart into writing this.
I got the impression that the first part of this story linked on to the ending of this? If so, i thought that was really clever ^ ^
Author's Response: Yes, there are three sections, and the very first part fits in between the second and third parts. At the exchange I actually gave them subheadings, but I never liked the device, and decided to see if people thought it was too confusing without. I wanted to show a really kind of one-sided romance full of self-denial, and I did think that I skipped a lot, but it just felt right... I think you're on to something there and maybe that's what I was thinking subconsciously. This whole thing was all written "it just feels right like this" and when I was done and sat back and reread it, I was really shocked to see how the vertigo/falling theme worked its way out!
I'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for reviewing!
