Hi!!
I've been having a lot of trouble getting my chapters posted onto this site. There's always some type of little excuse, (you misspelled two words or you had one comma wrong), that I get when the Cabal tells me they won't post my work. Most of those issues are a result of the uploading program used on this site.
So, that means that the majority of my stuff isn't posted on this site and will probably never be posted. This also includes additional chapters for the stuff I was able to post before the Cabal came into existence.
If you want to read more of my work please go to fanfiction dot net. I'm under the same pen name and everything that is posted here is posted there in a much more complete form.

Thanks,

Mell8

P.S. Just so you know, I am trying to finish posting Finding Color and Twisted Cinders on this site. All the others are a wash so don't look for updates here.

Never Forgotten by Ladidah    (Reviews - 68)

A six-year old Ginny meets a seven-year old Draco in the Ministry of Magic while waiting for her father. An innocent friendship forms, and they remain playmates throughout their childhood—unbeknownst to their families. However, moving on to Hogwarts splits them, because they each have their own images and families to support—but they will never forget their childhood memories. Details what really happens behind the scenes between Draco and Ginny during the first five years at Hogwarts. Pairings: Draco/Ginny. NOTE: Temporarily abandoned until I find more inspiration. I did, however, halt my story at a good stopping point, which perhaps is why I'm so reluctant to begin again. Regardless, I hope you enjoy what is here, and I will write again when I have the time and motivation. ^^

Heavenly Creatures by Anise    (Reviews - 55)

The sequel to The Bat-Bogeys Cometh, and the second in the trilogy. In the summer of 1997, the entire wizarding world hovers above the abyss of its own destruction. The Death Eaters have escaped Azkaban and killed dozens of students on the Hogwarts Express, and the school has become a fortress of fear. No-one knows what happened to Draco Malfoy... except for Ginny. But there is more to the story than anybody dreams, and Ginny cannot resist going to Sirius Black’s grave on a long, hot summer evening, and as she tries to unravel the mystery of his life and death, she falls into a dream of the last days at Twelve Grimmauld Place with him, two years before. And when Ginny wakes to the reality of 1997 Hogwarts, she begins to understand why she is remembering all of these long-gone events... because although her last chance to save the wizarding world from the doom that awaits it lay in that summer past, there are powers to whom nothing is impossible—for a price.

Before the Storm by Glass_Mermaid    (Reviews - 491)

*Winner of the Draco/Ginny Fanfiction Award for Best Novel Length Story.* "Perhaps not everything is as black and white as it appears. Perhaps, even my father was tangled in a web of his own emotions, and in the end it spelled his death. Perhaps I too will share his fate, dying not for the cause I believe in, but for that which I cannot foresee." The ever weaving threads of our own decisions can lead to irrevocable knots, and when Lucius Malfoy is destroyed by unexpected forces, his son, Draco, is thrown into a world of political intrigue, insatiable passion and desperate gambits, opening doors he never thought to look for, and creating a life he never thought he would have as his own.

Friends in Low Places by Nola Ryan    (Reviews - 22)

Ginny Weasley is not the only one affected by the destruction of The Chamber of Secrets and Tom Riddle's diary. But out of the painful fallout of those events an unlikely connection is made. This connection -- dare they call it a friendship? -- will dramatically alter the lives of Ginny and Draco Malfoy. They'll learn the hard way, though, that changing your path in life leads to challenges that even the strongest bonds may not survive.

Thank you for putting something like this up. You should post this in other places like fanfiction.net so more people can finally learn how to write. I have one question about grammar. I keep trying to post a chapter of my story and the people who check out my story continue to reject it based on the fact that I have trouble with my apostrophy S. Could you add a little side note to your next chapter explaining when you put an apostrophy after a word and before an S? I would be eternally grateful. Thanks.

Hmmm, this is a very good recreation of Oceans 11. The only important plot point you left out of this chapter is the ring. When Ocean gets out of prison he is holding a wedding ring and is bouncing it in his hand on purpose. I'm sure you know why the ring's important so maybe you should consider adding it in?
Anyway, great chapter. Update soon!

Author's Response: I\'ve decided not to have Draco and Ginny divorced or married at all. I don\'t know, I may change it later. If I do, I\'ll add in the ring part before he meets up with her or something.

Does she walk down the aisle or does she run off after Draco? Ending it the way you did leaves it open to the interpretation of the reader and I think it's beautifully done.
