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!Category: Works in Progress
I love this fic! It's absolutely hilarious *g* Ginny's pov is great - she's sassy and fun and self-confident, just like I'd imagine her in this situation, and the dynamic between her and Draco is promising. But what I love best is your Narcissa, so supremely sure of herself, so powerful and intimidating, and at the same time, with a wicked sense of humour. :) What a great collaboration!
Ves says: I adore Narcissa and am always thrilled to see her written as a strong, confident and just a little wicked woman. Sadly, there aren\'t a lot of writers doing this. If you want something done right, sometimes you do have to do it yourself!
Myn says: That thing Ves said, about doing it yourself? The entire reason I write fanfic. True story.
Ves says: I never knew that. Hmm...Me too. Particularly with that one beloved Buffyverse pairing. *grin*
Omg I love this fic! It just gets better and better! *g* I love that they're forced to work together now, because Draco is right - their talents *are* quite complementary :) But I still love Narcissa best, she's such a kickass businesswoman, in this (and also, the idea of her pinching Draco's cheek made me laugh so hard). Fabulous chapter! Thank you for writing this awesome story!
Author's Response: Ves says: In my world, Narcissa delights in occasionally making Draco turn bright red and want the earth to swallow him. Tee hee!
Myn says: Well, it's a mother's duty, you know.
Draco and Ginny get locked into the Malfoy vault when a Goblin has an unfortunate accident. How on earth are they going to pass the time until they are rescued...? One-shot, PWP Smutty goodness. Oh, and there is a teeny, tiny, insignificant HBP spoiler. But the only way you'd recognise it is to have read HBP. So I doubt it really counts.Category: Completed Short Stories
I just stumbled across this fic on the search for some good, IC smut, and this was exactly what I'd been looking for. Thank you so much for writing such a sexy-yet-sweet fic! :) I loved the D/G encounter in the vault, but the family parts were great too. The Malfoys (especially Lucius) get treated so badly in most D/G fics that I was thrilled to see them portrayed like this. Draco's talk with his father made me laugh out loud, and Arthur's rambling about his marriage was such a funny scene *g* Wonderful!
Author's Response: :-D Thank you for your review. I\'m glad you liked it. I really enjoyed writing it because it was always about a funny, witty little smut ficlet and I dislike seeing the Malfoy family portrayed as violent and abusive. Harsh, maybe. Unforgiving, possibly. And definitely a little on the dark and snobby side. So I really enjoyed \'using\' that to have Lucius embarrass Draco. That was fun to write. :-)
Even if he only got a glimpse of her flame-coloured hair around a corner, it was enough. Enough to keep him breathing. Alive.Category: Works in Progress

Oh, I like this! :) Most 7th year fics aren't HBP-compliant (yet), and I'm excited to see how you'll pull this off! This Ginny is fun - she's not exactly nice to him, but she seems like she might develop a soft spot *g* I loved how she anticipated his response, in the kitchen, and how she imitates him. Surely Draco would find that irritating - it's his thing, after all ;-) I'm looking forward to reading more.
Author's Response: Thanks! So pleased you read it!You were the first D/G author I read... so it\'s all your fault!
Draco's inner monologue makes me giggle. *g* I like that this is, in spite of the very serious situation they are in, a very lighthearted treatment of D/G. :) Or at least so far! I'm excited to see where you'll be going with it. I just hope Narcissa's death will turn out to be just a dream. I couldn't stand to see her die, ahh!
Author's Response: I actually thought about you when I put in the \"character death\" thing on the posting site. Never fear, Peki, I wouldn\'t do that to you...
This last chapter made me smile (they all do, really, but this last one especially) :-) I really like this fic! This 7th year scenario is very similar to something I've been working on lately (one of those braintwin moments *g*), and I can't wait to discuss and compare with you once mine is posted :) I especially love Ginny in this, still. She's strong and kind, just what Draco needs. I was a bit surprised that they became so friendly and comfortable with each other so soon, but I trust you've got the plot all figured out and planned, so I'm curious where it's going. I'm excited for more and will be waiting for an update most impatiently *g*
Author's Response: I really hope their intentions and subconsious thoughts come out within their inner monolgues... Am I the only one who has these? Anyhow, that that will give the reader reasons for their behavior. I\'ve written through chapter 16... it\'s all on beta time, really. And trust me. You don\'t want it pre-beta.
Ah, understanding the complex and subtle nature of Draco Malfoy...I wish, lol! :) I greatly enjoy previewing this, thank you for letting me!
Author's Response: Believe me, chapters 11-14 were greatly helped by you! I can't wait to post them!
Teehee! Glad to see you posting more of this! Draco's internal monologue never fail to makes me laugh. :)
Author's Response: Thanks to you, his internal monologue isn\'t quite so fluffy! I like him with the snark.
What happens when a potions explosion coincides with Ginny's annual, self-imposed trip to the infirmary? Sometimes when you don't know who you're talking to, prejudices are laid aside, and you get to know the person behind the family. This is a response to the November challenge of "infirmary" on the FIA forums.Category: Completed Short Stories

Oh, cute! I don't normally read AU fics, but this was too sweet to miss :) You've been prolific lately, that's great!
