Hello all! I'm currently finishing up my Junior year of college as an English major. I've lived all my life in a little hicktown in Michigan, and I've loved every minute of it! Writing is just a hobby for me, which--combined with the fact that I work part-time and am a full-time student-- is why I take so long to update. I do try, though! It's the thought that counts :)

I'm also active on fanfiction.net as ExtremeDancer. I have a couple of Remus/Ginny fics posted there that aren't up here for obvious reasons. I wrote them quite some time ago, so I won't guarantee the quality until I can go back and do some rewrites, but feel free to take a looksie if you're so inclined!

That was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I thought you portrayed the characters perfectly-namely Draco and Ginny- and I'm really glad that Colin turned out to be a butt, because I don't like him very much ;)

One Last Wish by dracosnaughtyprefect    (Reviews - 235)

She wants him to have the whole experience of pregnancy that he could never have with her, so she asks for the witch to live with him during the 9 months. What will happen when Ginny Weasley is that witch? And what will happen when she finds out that the dreams that have been haunting her sleep have everything to do with Draco?

Well, first of all, I think this is a BEAUTIFUL story. As for the name... something with Jessica as the middle name... or maybe Ginevra as the middle name and Jessica as the first name? I think that'd be sweet... Or maybe TWO middle names, being Jessica and Ginevra... okay, I'll just stop ;)

Trick or Treat! by Hearts Cadence    (Reviews - 32)

When Malfoy tells Ginny that she doesn't stand out, she decides to prove him wrong. Trick or treating in the Slytherin Dorms seems a perfect way to do just that.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Cadence, you make me chukle a LOT! I basically thought this was really funny. :) (and yes, this is the same Extreme Dancer as fanfiction.net)

Hey, I was wondering if I could ask a favor. Would you mind terribly if I use this line:

“Really? Huh. I thought it was like programmed into the male brain to be in a constant state of semi-arousal,” I mused thoughtfully.

The look he gave me was one of pure incredulity. “Please tell me you did not just say that.”

in one of my fics sometime? I'll give you full credit for it and everything, but I totally understand if you say no.

Oh, and BTW, I plan to give you credit for the basic personality of my Blaise when I get around to posting 'Angel of Music' on here. :)

The Infirmary by Persephone33    (Reviews - 69)

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.

Newlyweds by ginny_gaz    (Reviews - 91)

Sparks fly and glasses shatter when two elite Aurors, Ginny Weasley and Draco Malfoy, are assigned to pose as Ashton and Bryhoney Seaton, a newly married couple, to catch the Death Eaters roaming free even twelve years after Voldemort was defeated. Surely they would catch the Death Eaters, only if they could remove their wands from each others' throats. They would kill each other, even if they kept alone with each other for more than an hour...or so they claimed.

Good chapter! I want to slap Blaise upside the face... I was falling in love with him and his magnificent obsession with Ginny until we found out he's married. Jerk-face. His one chance for redemption will be if they're married to provide some sort of cover for them for something, but otherwise he's crap.

Sorry, I get a little too into things sometimes :) Great chapter, though; I loved it!

Author's Response: Blaise is a character I'm loving...... I so wanted his character to be just like this...He's coming out perfectly till now. That's all I'm going to say right now...

Okay, much better. Good chapter :) Obviously you got my attention with it, so well done there. I'm glad she and Harry can finally talk again. I have this feeling she'll go to the engagement party, find Draco there, yell it out loudly in the middle of everyone... yes, I can see that. I'll be anxiously awaiting the next installment.

Also, an extra WTF for Ron actually having tact ;)

Contractual Obligations by gidge_8    (Reviews - 751)

Selling herself into a marriage contract, Ginny finds herself playing a deadly game, ultimately pitting her husband against her lover and a father against his son. Many twists and turns, depth and evil characters - and a long story of sweet and true love.

New! Epilogue is up! Yes, I know, the story has been "complete" for a couple of years, but this ending has been partially written for a long time and it ties up some loose ends.

This is such a great story; I really love it. I'm particularly happy with the way you keep making Lucius a total ass--I have a tendency to like the Ginny/older man pairing, and you're doing a really great job of making sure I hate him and want her to get together with Draco. Great chapter! :)

Author's Response: I personally loved the fact that she finally managed to hit him back during this chapter. There's something about really being able to hate a bad guy that is rather therapeutic. :)

Date: Feb 02, 2009 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3

I really love this story! I love the way you've kept Draco and Ginny very IC (snarky in Draco's case, unwilling to take any crap in Ginny's), and I also love the characterization of Blaise and the addition of Taylor.

My only critique would be to be careful when both Malfoys are present in a scene. There were certain times when you identified the person speaking as just 'Malfoy' and I wasn't sure who you were talking about (I'm speaking specifically of whichever Malfoy took her dragon from her).

But otherwise, I love it!

Not Quite an Affair by Rosalie    (Reviews - 528)

“You mustn’t tell them, Rose! Harry knows but Lily and the boys… you can’t breathe a word…”

When Rose Weasley went to her favorite aunt for advice on how to handle loving someone her family disapproved of, she never dreamed the older woman would have been able to relate so well. In the comfortable safety of her kitchen, Ginevra Potter told her niece everything and swore her to secrecy. But months later, when Ginevra notices that her daughter, Lily, is spending time with Scorpius Malfoy, Ginny realizes too late that the truth can never really be locked away. Children question their parents and their own identities and everyone must confront the past.

A Marriage of Convenience by ClairdeLune    (Reviews - 177)

The post-war world is hardly the utopia it claims to be. Freedom is an illusion, and getting into the good graces of those with power takes precedence over morals. In this unhappy world, can Ginny, forced into a marriage of convenience, find happiness? And does she know the people around her as well as she thinks?
