Throw It All Away by CliodnaHPFan    (Reviews - 118)

Ginny has had feelings for Harry for as long as she can remember. One summer, she decides to take things into her own hands and find out if she’s really in love with him, or if it’s just an infatuation. She gets her answer, and things spiral downhill from there.

I loved this so very much. Ginny's struggle, her feelings of being trapped in a loveless relationship, her panic attacks, her recklessness -- all ring so true to life. She and Draco are given the kind of life-like depth canon never achieves. Well done!

I had to stop here to tell you what an amazing chapter that was. 

" Blaise had Ginny's hand in his lap and was stroking it softly and absentmindedly. Although his light touch tickled her, Ginny was more disturbed by the fact that Draco's thigh and arm were in direct contact with hers. Blaise's presence was comforting but Draco was so warm that he felt like fire. Every point of her skin that touched Draco sent tendrils of adrenaline throughout the rest of her body. When Ginny shivered from this effect, Blaise looked at her with a sweet smile."

That is some of the best UST I have ever read!  Squee.  On to the next chapter, then. :)

The Pleasure of Your Company by Kirixchi    (Reviews - 151)

The Visible Invisible by Emeral_eyes    (Reviews - 116)

*Complete* "There are hundreds of invisible people in the world – the ones that you would never notice. You can see them, because they are there, but you don’t SEE them really. I realized that night that I was invisible." When you feel invisible, you'd do anything to have someone really see you; the way you've always wanted to be seen. But if the only person who actually sees you is the last person you'd ever expect it to be, what do you do? [Post Hogwarts]

Date: Jan 02, 2006 Title: Chapter 44: The Silence of Victory and Defeat

I really enjoyed this story.  Great characters, really exciting plot, beautifully written descriptions (I especially love the way you described the Manor in Bulgaria).  Neville as a dark wizard I wasn't so sure of, probably more because the name "Longbottom" sounds so very unscary, rather than because he seemed OOC.  I actually liked the motivation you gave him for being resentful and turning to the other side.  Great job, going off to read your other stuff now!


Author's Response: Thank you!  And you are absolutely right about Neville being OOC, because I love him like woah and know that he\'s Gryffindor to the core and would never become like that... But he\'s the only one that really fit the \'invisible\' type that I needed for the story... I felt bad about abusing poor Neville this way, but it had to be done!

I Will Never Let You Leave Me by Lirie Halliwell    (Reviews - 37)

When her dreamworld begins to crack and nightmares seep into her life and overrule everything she ever believed in, Ginny has no other choice but to run. But when her hero becomes yet another threat, the Fates bring an unexpected aid to her side. Why is she haunted by the nigtmares of twisted and untrue reality? What do prophecies have to do with this? And why does it feel right to trust a former enemy?

Most of the story has been betaed by dragonsangel68, to whom I shall forever be grateful for her input and willingness to help.

Interesting so far! I like F&G calling Ginny "oyster" -- very funny. The scenes between Ginny and Draco in the manor remind me of Beauty and the Beast -- particularly when her favorite foods are appearing, and she's given money. I hope this story has a happy beast-transforming ending, too!

Draco's Dark Cloud by Mynuet    (Reviews - 57)

One morning, Draco Malfoy woke up to find himself half-drowning. He sat up quickly, water running off the planes of his face as he tried to decipher the cause of this nocturnal aquatic apparition. He was in his private room at Hogwarts. Peeves did not appear to be in the vicinity. He looked up to see if perhaps his bed's canopy had developed a leak when he saw it. Against all the laws of sense and probability, a tiny grey cloud was hovering just above his head, sending out an inexhaustible amount of rain.

The Lush Life by Vesanmyn    (Reviews - 657)

A Vesica/Mynuet Collaboration. If Ginny had even the slightest inkling of what the day would bring, she probably would have called in sick. A disastrous press conference proved to be no match for the spin doctoring talents of Lush's chief and Ginny finds herself catapulted from being a lowly intern to the very eye of the storm, living a double life as a careerwitch and glamorous front woman for a racy new line. Throw in a few A-list events, a few dozen crises, an endless promotional tour with her new co-worker and the last person she wanted to spend time with, and a mystery waiting back home that neither of them may be able to solve….Every day's an adventure when you're living the Lush Life!

Ahhhhh! I'm so glad I started reading this! I just laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. Oh, my stomach hurts! On to chapter two . . .

Author's Response: Ves says: Oh, it\'s just getting started! Welcome to the insanity!
Myn says: Make sure you put down the food and drink before reading. We wouldn\'t want to be blamed for any shorted-out keyboards.

Just a bit of randomness: I love the verb "foofing."

Author's Response: Myn says: That was Ves\'s word, but I love it, too. Foof! Foof! Foof!
Ves says: Was that mine? *blushes* It\'s a nice verb. Implies the action and the silliness of it at the same time. :D

Date: Jan 31, 2006 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter Six – Potions, Press Conferences, & Pastry Purloining

The poor intern! That part was hilarious (well, the whole chapter was, but that was my favorite). And I love Narcissa with her little herd of stilletoed (sp?) help. I can just picture them clicking their way around the office. Nice alliteration in the chapter title! I tried to think of an alliterative review, but alas, am not clever (or patient) enough. The best I can think of is "I chortled my way through this chapter." Sad, really.

Author's Response:
Ves says: The image of a flock of ladies on ridiculously high heels prancing around after their chief got stuck in my head. Glad to have passed it on!
Myn says: Total credit for our awesome chapter titles goes to Ves. Yay, Ves!
Ves says: Thank you, thank you. I think the trick is not taking the titles or the chapters themselves too seriously.

I so totally loved that.  Hilarious.  And the recipe sounds great -- I'll have to try it.  My favorite line from the story: "While there, she convinced herself that she could never date Draco Malfoy, and could certainly never love him. Once all that was decided, she stopped at the apothecary and purchased a contraceptive potion." Hehe.

I really like this so far. It's a great premise for a story. Draco's a complete and utter ass, but I have faith that Ginny will help him see the light. I'm glad that Blaise has a mistress -- that'll keep us from sympathizing with him when he gets dumped. Can't wait for your next chapter!

Wow - I'm the 50th reviewer for this chapter - that has to be some sort of record for an unfinished fic. But let me say, all the accolades are completely deserved! I noticed this fic on the top ten list and finally sat down to read it. I'm so glad I did! This is one of the best D/G stories I've ever read, and I've read a lot. I'm so excited about this story - can't wait for your next chapter!

I both love the end of "Quidditch," and thought it was a perfect, complete story all by itself, and love this sequel, too. For all its happy-endingness, it never veers into super marshmallow bunny fluff. And darn it, I want Draco and Ginny to be together! So thank you! Sorry for not reviewing "Quidditch" -- I read it all at once and had to rush off to read this. Definitely going on my favs list!

This looks really promising. Neat premise. I really like the line "and scrambled to get back into the safety of his little dark box with the apple slice." That struck me as very funny. Looking forward to more!

Author's Response: Thank you. I thought that particular line was cute too. I have no clue as to why. There is another funny ferretism that Draco picks up on in the next chapter.

Along Came A Wizard by fallenwitch    (Reviews - 642)

A bet, a wanted witch, and a magical contract land Draco in a most unexpected situation. Can his Slytherin soul survive intact or will he succumb to one redheaded witch in bondage? Snarky humor, romance, and a pinch of angst. “I don’t want it. I didn’t order it. Now leave me the fuck alone.” He slammed the door closed. Only it didn’t close due to the enormous boot wedged into its threshold. One loud grunt later and it flung back open, almost hitting him in the face. Draco reflexively leaned back, and that’s when she was thrust into his unsuspecting arms.

Another great chapter! I love the hint of humor over whether or not Draco is too old to play Quidditch -- his characterization in this fic is great. And it makes me happy every time he catches the snitch. I'm looking forward to your next chapter -- can't wait to hear Ginny talk more!

Really nice story!  Details such as Ron's childishness even as an adult, the men and women separating after dinner (how very British), and Ginny's nervousness letting Draco know she was going to have another baby were perfect, and made this a really fun read.  Well done!


Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. I\'m such a terrible review whore, so thank you for your kind comments. As for the britishness of the splitting, that was inspired by my boxing day evening spent with a very large extended not-quite-family-yet. As for the choice of drinks, well a Snowball is as traditional as Turkey and Baileys is properly getting there! LOL
