I do hope you don't give up on this xx

Author's Response: Hi Kate, This is another that was origianally released as part of a fic contest, so it was more of a beginning than an entire story. The plan for this is to do it "anime" style, as a series. The next two episodes of the serial are outlined and partially written, but I have a conundrum over the Dragonball universe and kind of want to drop it. Thanks for letting me know you like it. It does give me incentive to not drop the project entirely when I know that people care about reading further. Thanks!

:O It would have been a fantastic long story!! Though it is still an amazing short one.

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed! There's not a huge following for AU stories, but I do love the idea a lot. I actually had an idea to make this a 3-part series, to add to the "episode" feel of this short story. It depends on my time, since I have other unfinished stories that I'd like to complete first. Thanks so much for your review! :D

This was really cool, I liked the idea and story you ran with. Makes me want to watch the anime, but somehow I know that the main characters won't be as cool as Draco and Ginny.

Author's Response: I totally agree! :) Writing this, I was thinking of an anime sort of scenery. So glad you enjoyed and thanks for the feedback!

Oh, I forgot it just stops. You know, I happen to know rather a lot about Dragon Ball Z (I even write DBZ fanfiction), so if you were ever wanting to expand this and need an expert on Dragon Balls and all things DBZ, I'm your man -- er, woman.

Other than that, this was a cute fic. Such potential. *wink wink*

Author's Response: You go girl, or, er, woman! :) I might take you up on that! I was so hoping that by posting I might find someone who could help. I was thinking of making this a series and I have some ideas, since I got so much feedback begging for more. LOL I'll email you separately and maybe we can come up with something together. :)

This story is awesome! I like how descriptive you are, also the characters are well developed. Pretty, pretty please continue it! :D

Author's Response: Thank you! I am getting a lot of requests to continue! When it was first posted in the fic exchange, it got no notice at all, so I totally hated the story for a long time. But, the feedback is giving me ideas, so it is a possibility that this will get more to it. :) Thank you for letting me know you liked it! It means a lot. :)

I like it. This is the first fic I've read that actually goes to Auror Academy, and I think your version definitely works :)

Author's Response: Thank you! You know what I love about reviews? Sometimes you just trigger the right idea to get me out of a rut, and your review did. I was so focused on the quest that I had forgotten about all the Auror background story! And there is so much to explore there. So, thank you!

I find it refreshing that you did not completely follow hana kimi in this story. I also like the fact that you added a bit more complexity to this story. Looking forward to the next chapter :)

Author's Response: I think, from here it will digress a bit, although I will try to keep Ginny's character closer to her Hana Kimi counterpart. Thank you very much!

Well, you did put 'TBC' at the end, so isn't 'I'd love to turn it into a long story' a bit of silly thing to say? Of course you have to continue! Is there even a doubt? You always write beautifully. Your 'Faerie Tales...' is one of my all times favourites and most of your stories are really really good. In fact, if you won't finish this story, you risk a lot of potential ill-will from your readers and that'd just mess up your karma, wouldn't it? So you see, you just have to write! ;) And since I know that generic 'i love it, write more' isn't very informative for the author I'll add what I liked the most about this chapter. The whole dragon plot line surprised me, I didn't really expect there to be any other plot, so that's always good and I like that Ginny isn't just opening up and spilling everything to Draco. What I wonder about though is if Draco isn't somehow double-crossing her or keeping something to himself. I wonder if he might actually need help from a female and that is why he is being so open about his 'quest'. I can' wait to read more. Thanks for posting these chapters; they've made my imagination run wild. :)

Author's Response: LOL! That was the best threat to continue that I've ever received! I truly wish I had the time to add to this one. It was originally posted over 2 years ago for a fic exchange, and I didn't post it here for a couple of reasons: first, it got no love and barely four reviews in the exchange, so I figured people hated the concept. Second, the story's prompt called for a Dragon Ball Z crossover - and I don't follow that at all! So, I'd have to get into that series to do this story justice.
So, after two years, I had no time and no inspiration for how to continue, so I just decided to post it as the open-ended short fic that it was in the exchange. Perhaps if I find a co-writer who knows DragonBall a bit... :)

I really hope this isn't the end! I'm really liking it so far. :(

Author's Response: Thank you! I keep hoping that something comes along to inspire more, but it's been two years. It was left open-ended in the fic exchange, so it will have to remain that way for now. :)

Very interesting chapter! I love that Draco wasn't fooled by her. Good job. :)

I don't know why I haven't read this before now. hah.

Anyway, I really like the atmosphere that you've created here. You're doing a really good job of portraying how out of place Ginny really is in the midst of these other Auror trainees. I like it a lot. :)
Name: twiddlekinks reviewed Chapter 1 - The Auror Academy on Mar 05, 2012 07:36 pm
ooooh, awesome! haha i think i asked for this a few fic exchanges ago. am glad that you flew with the Hana Kimi-ness! ^_^

Author's Response: Ah! I always wondered who sent that prompt! :) I guess you dropped out, because when they posted the story they didn't say who I wrote it for. I was a backup writer, so I got the prompt late, and it ended up being one of the last stories posted, so nobody read it, which was really disappointing. As a result, I hated this story for a while, because I thought nobody liked it. After it sat for a couple of years, I decided to give it another chance and post it here. It seems to be well-received. It is rather funny because I had never watched Hana Kimi or Dragon Ball Z before, so I had to do a lot of research before I could write.

I love this chapter. Always have. I like the fact that he already knew before she was hurt - I think he's observant enough to notice that. Also like how you let that whole scene play out. Ginny's majorly crushing, while Draco is just, well, Draco. It's cute and fun, and just what I felt like reading.

It's been so long that I can't remember what 'Goku' has to do with this anymore. But all it makes me think of is Dragon Ball Z, which I can't remember if was your point or not. Ah, I'm tired. Sorry of this makes no sense. I liked this chapter, anyway.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it. This was the world's toughest prompt. :) But, yes, Goku is from the Dragon Ball universe. Someday, I'd love to continue this story with some help from a serious Dragon Ball Z fan because it has so much potential for a long fic, but I'd need someone to bounce ideas off to keep it in perspective. and I really love this universe. I think Mathilde has some potential. :)

haha I had a feeling Draco would find out soon enough. Thanks for the great read! can't wait for the next chapter.

oh my god!!! I've been waiting for someone to finally do this! Great job interweaving Hana kimi with Draco/Ginny. I'm excited for the next chapters! although if u dont mind me asking... who plays nakatsu in this fic?

Author's Response: Awesome! I was wondering if anyone would be familiar with it. :) This was a prompt for a fic exchange, and I had not seen Hana Kimi before, but when I saw Sano, I thought he was a perfect Draco! (if Draco was Japanese). I'm afraid I didn't delve too deeply into the other characters due to the time limit. Enjoy.

Actually, I'm kind of disappointed that he'd figured her out so soon, but I guess you know where you are going with this and trust you to make it very exciting. Thanks for sharing this story. I like stories that use something of Rowling and still create their own reality (about gender segragated community for example). Great job! Update soon. :)

Author's Response: This story was originally intended to be a short story for a fic exchange, so it moves along a little fast. I definitely could have made a very, very long story around this concept. I really like the universe and I 'm glad you do too.

Oh, wow! I love Ginny dressing up as a boy. Her childish crush on Malfoy is described brilliantly and I can't wait for more!

Great start, and I love the unique premise - a little Shakespearean, which is a good thing. Can't wait to see what happens next!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you think it is unique. It is actually follows Hana Kimi very closely, although I kind of had in mind a world that looked anime. Glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for the review. :D

I really like where this is going :) I love the AUness of it and the potential.

Just one thing : I wasn't sure whether Ginny was applying to be an Auror because she genuinely wanted to or because Draco was there - I think both were implied at points. (I admit I would prefer the first option because it would imply she's independent and has an agenda of her own) though it seems it might be the latter.

Anyway, looking forward to more :)

Author's Response: A very good question! I think Ginny isn't sure of it herself. She is definitely frustrated with the fact that she's not treated as an equal, and she is very interested in becoming an Auror - not necessarily because of the career itself, but because it's something forbidden. She wants to find out why it's such a big deal that women aren't considered capable enough to make it, because she's pretty sure she can if she works hard enough. However, i think she definitely would not have gone against social convention if it wasn't for her quest to chase her Quidditch player. She has the intention of succeeding, just to prove that she can, because, she's pretty darned sick of seeing her brothers have opportunities that she doesn't, and she wants to stick it to them a bit, because she knows she's just as smart and capable. She's no quitter. She decided to go for it, and she's going to do her best to succeed. More coming soon! And thank you so much for reading.

Great idea mixing the two plots :) This is definitely going on the tracked list!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! It was a massive challenge! I knew nothing of Hana Kimi when I got the prompt. The AU seems to scare off some readers, but I'm glad you gave it a shot and I hope you enjoy the rest.
Best wishes!

This looks very very promising. I;m intrigued as to how it all will play out. Ginny's got herself in a tight spot and her plan was obviously not thought through.

I hope you update soon!

Author's Response: I'm glad you like it so far. :) I seem to do that a lot with Ginny, where she doesn't really think things through. I think that's sort of a Gryffindor trait - to charge in bravely without considering all the facts. LOL. However, in this case, she's based on the Hana Kimi character, who is very much on the clumsy side.
