This one deserves a sequel like most of your fics do -but this one especially. One where she actually gets him back :) Pretty please?

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed this, but I'll be honest. I'm unlikely to add anything to this story.

Poor Ginny. She always gets herself into these messes. Lovely story. Gave me a giggle, especially when he made her drink the water. Nicely done.

Author's Response: I know, but just think, nothing exciting would ever happen if Ginny's plans actually worked.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked this, and thanks for the review!

Snerk! This was one of those fics that seems to take place very much at the start of Draco and Ginny's relationship. Draco's checked something out by the end, all right, and he most certainly will be seeing her round, but he's not about to admit it to her. ;) And something tells me that one day, Ginny will have ample opportunity to get back at him. But in the meantime, this was a cute, cute fic, and... oh dear, poor Crabbe. I do feel kind of bad for him. I hope he got out of the supply cupboard, and that someone kissed him, too. :)

Author's Response: Oh, this is very, very much at the start of their relationship. If I had more time (always the same excuse), I think I could do something with this, but I have so many stories in progress as it is. That being said, I did leave it open-ended, so there's always the possibility.

I like to think Crabbe was rescued and got a kiss. I have a definite soft spot for Crabbe and Goyle, despite the fact I often use the poor things as comic relief.

Critiques - I felt Ginny was a little OOC, that or I wasn't too fond of her mean streak in this interpretation. I have a hard time seeing her as someone that would just take advantage of Crabbe's lack of intelligence. A little too heavy on the adverb usage, and I would recommend when you're rereading what you write, to cut out any unnecessary parts - like

"What now?" she said shortly, turning to face him.

You could get rid of "shortly, turning to face him" and we'd still know that she was impatient because she "huffed" in the previous sentence, and just by the very question.

I know it's a one shot but I think this has amazing potential to be a really good story. Even though the prank thing has been done a bazillion times before, you came up with something fresh - i.e. Ginny sucks at pranking Draco, which was really amusing.

My favorite line was:


"Just wanted to check something." He smiled and ushered her out of his dorm. "I'll see you round, Weasley."

Because to me, it suggests he is testing whether or not he's interested in her, finds the answer interesting and tolerable (he smiled), but isn't willing to go further for the time being (ushering her out of the room).

In a way he's not rushing the romance (which I assume he doesn't realize that's what it is), which is one of the qualities of a good story.

Author's Response: I think Ginny probably was a little OOC, which is why I can't stand prank fics. No matter what the scenario, the characters are always forced into doing something they would not normally do, and all for the sake of plot. The fact I wrote this in less than an hour doesn't really help, either. But I do take your critiques into account. Believe me, I am well aware when I'm being lazy with my writing, and this was definitely one of my lazy fics. Though I think I may just be a naturally rambly person, so I'm not surprised you felt I was unnecessarily wordy (and your point is taken. I'll try be more aware next time.)

What you said about Draco is pretty much spot on. I have no idea if I will continue this (probably not, since I have an aversion to writing prank stories -- and that is mostly because /I/ really suck at coming up with pranks). But perhaps I can try make Ginny get revenge in other ways. In case, I left this one open, so it may be that I continue it some day when I have more time.
