Sticks and Stones by Thalia    (Reviews - 9)

Ginny Weasley, her family, life and loves. A 10x100 I wrote for Adrith. Hints at multiple Ginnyships, but ultimately a definite and resounding D/G.

The Vexing Hex by Elia Sheldon    (Reviews - 14)

The more he saw her, the more he felt compelled to say something, anything, to get her attention. Draco wasn't used to feeling that way about anyone, not even Pansy, his supposed girlfriend.

LOL. That was nice! Very sweet! My only complaint is Luna. She was a bit snarky, and Luna is too dreamy to engage in bantering with Draco.

Still, the D/G was spot on. Nice. ^_^

Ginny, Insane by seven years    (Reviews - 5)

'Is it wrong, that we were so young? Should I have been sage at the age of seventeen, pushing this handsome boy away because I knew he might be a little bad for me?' Maybe she's just insane. Because she half wishes he would just leave.

That was exceptionally well writtten.
:(
You know, I'm a rabid D/G shipper, and I want to believe that they're made for each other; I don't want to see them failing because of their differences, so this was kind of hard to read. Still, you're very talented, and though I would be lying if I said I enjoyed this fic, I have to admit it was an excellent piece of writing.
Nicely done.

Reviewer: rowan_greenleaf Signed
Date: Nov 13, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Killing Three Birds

I honestly don't understand what the age of the writer has to do with writing smut or not, but, whatever, to each his own. I was going to review begging for an update, but you seem to really hate this fic, which is a shame. It's a wonderful fic, incredibly well written. Your descriptions are amazing, and while your Draco wasn't exactly the most charming, he certainly follows canon Draco well enough. More importantly,this has to be the most realistic description of deflowering that I have EVER read.

I think it's a fantastic first chapter, but I suppose it will have to remain a one-shot for all time, as you seem to despise it and you've made clear that you won't EVER update, so whatever.

For what it's worth (and to you it doesn't seem much) this was great fic and I truly enjoyed reading it.



Author's Response: There seems to be a great deal of hostility in this review. I am glad you appreciate my writing but let me first disabuse you of certain notions... No, I do not HATE this story. Like all my works, when I was actively writing it I put a lot of care and attention into it. I do not despise it either, although as one of my earlier pieces I find that as I reread it, I notice glaring flaws and self-critique this piece as being typical of the age I was when I wrote it. The age of the author has EVERYTHING to do with her stories as life experiences alter and change a persons' perceptions and attitudes drastically. When I began writing this (YEARS before it was ever posted live online) I was a teenager going through the usual teenage angst and emotional rollercoaster of puberty. It shows in the writing and in the subject matter. I wrote about my own secret fears and fantasies as an outlet and expression. I have since grown up. A Lot. I am 25 now and much tempestuous water has passed under the bridge. My thoughts, feelings, emotions and expression of those emotions has changed so drastically as a result of various experiences, that I no longer relate to this story enough to continue a lucid and coherent narrative. There is also the fact that as I am no longer an angsty, emotional teenager, but an adult with financial and relationship responsibilities and a certain level of maturity (although by no means am I some wise old sage), I feel uncomfortable writing teenage smut since I am no longer a teenager. There are a great many social pressures in the world we live in today and the rise of paedophilia and associated pornographic material of varying contexts means that many perfectly innocent people are labelled 'filthy' for writing stories such as these once they have long-ago left their own childhood. I have seen and read a huge number of online debates into this and whilst the stories themselves relate to fictitious characters, those of persecutary and sanctamonious disposition take it upon themselves to vilify others in order to elevate their own self esteem and I do not wish to be exposed to it. To that end and because I no longer identify with the stories, I will no longer be writing Irae Culpa, Oh Dear God, or the 3rd Chapter of the ODG Smut cookie. That does not mean I hate these stories, just that, like teenage angst and hair mascara, I have left them behind and moved on. However like many things, just because I have moved on, does not mean I cannot value and appreciate their place in my tubulent adolescence as an outlet and escape. If I really hated them, I would have deleted them from the site.... I am somewhat offended by the hostility in this review as many of the above comments are borderline spiteful: "For what it's worth (and to you it doesn't seem much)...", however I recognise that when publishing work to an open forum, you invite critiscism as well as compliment. For what it is worth, I am glad that you enjoyed the story as that was the original intention and it pleases me that even now, the work still stands the test of the years. However I would suggest displacing a little of that hostility and accepting with an open mind the thoughts and feelings I have expressed here.

Myanceris, I was very surprised at the tone of your reply, but I appreciate you taking the time to explain these things to me. I do not, however, appreciate the condescending tone!

:(

Allow me to disabuse YOU of some warped concepts: first off, I LOVED your fic, which is why I even bothered to review in the first place. I was just about to type one of my gushier reviews when I decided to check on your last update date, and saw that it had been several years. For that I reason I went on to read some of your previous reviews, and was disconcerted by the tone of your review replies: you seemed aggrieved by the whole thing. If fact, you sounded like you were tired of telling people that not only would you NOT continue to write this story, but you were actually going to delete it. It's what you said. In other words "Thank you for reviewing, but you're wasting your time." 

Yeah, I did get the impression that you hated your fic, and were instead of pleased bothered by its reviews and I did feel, as a reader, somewhat offended by that; when you read something you invest not only your time but your emotions, to a point, and you didn't sound awfully appreciative to me, quite the contrary! 

In any case my intention was NOT to offend you, but to tell you that even if you don't care to hear it, your story is exceptionally well written and I enjoyed it very much.

It's obvious that my review upset you a great deal, for which I apologize. Again, that has never been my intention when giving a writer feedback. I find this situation somewhat absurd and am sad that it even came to this point. Feel free to delete the offending critiques.

If you decide to reply to this please abstain from being "hostile" or condescending, as I find that offensive in turn. I don't require a reply, in any case, I think you were pretty clear the first time around.

~Rowan

Ava Adore by Szaranea    (Reviews - 31)

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and neither Ginny Weasley nor Draco Malfoy particularly lack in the despair department. Good soil for an unhealthy relationship that has the potential to give them everything they ever wanted while losing everything everybody else ever wanted for them.
