D/G a secret guilty pleasure, so when I read a fic it has to be amazing. Sometimes, I can be a harsh critic, and if I write a review that isn't so nice....it shouldn't matter that much. Authors can't please everyone anyway.

Cruel by rowan_greenleaf    (Reviews - 57)

[COMPLETE]. Draco Malfoy -you know, the Slytherin sex god and prince regent of Hogwarts? Yeah, that one- he's a bastard. She thought she knew that. She was wrong.

Beautiful writing, but I reallly couldn't imagine D and G here. It felt like I was watching Korean drama. Draco is definitely not so selfless.

Author's Response:

I remember being equally flattered and annoyed by this review when I first read it. Over a month ago, by the way. I do apologize for the delay in replying. Now on to the reply proper:

First off, I've no idea what Korean drama is like, so I'll just gloss over that part.

Secondly, I resent that "Draco is definitely not so selfless" comment. I remember many people said that about Severus Snape, and they were certainly proven wrong by the end of the series, weren't they? I think the Slytherin stereotype does not necessarily satisfy everyone, and certainly not all of the time.

Thirdly, thank you for taking the time to review.

Ha I read your response to my review, and decided to read this again. I actually love the premise of your story, and I agree with you that Draco isn't that bad of a bastard. I guess I've just always seen him as someone petty and a bit immature and definitely not as confident as he appears to be...as seen in all books. The other thing is I feel like Draco is too much in control here and I don't imagine that in canon...if Ginny and him were to get together I guess I see both of them initially fighting their attraction. Ginny just didn't seem as strong or feisty as I thought her to be, and I didn't imagine her to be staring at him hopelessly. She seems to be way more invested in him than he is in her. I didn't imagine her to do this especially after she had with Harry. Again, this is very well written and my review was not mean to be offensive in any way. I love your other fics by the way :)

Wow, this is amazing. The characters are perfect. I think you're really on to something here.

Author's Response: Thanks, haha I'm glad you noticed the characters, I think characterization is one of my strong points :) Look forward to future reviews haha!

Awesome chapter! I haven't yet read a fanfic from Draco's point of view in the 6th book. I'm sure there are plenty of fics with that sort of plot but they just don't do it for me. I like how Draco's a 'prat' and he's so much like a teenager here --- unsure, pompous, a little insecure and trying hard to cover it..he's been conditioned to believe in blood purity, and while I think he's always going to believe in this he hasn't come to fully realize what it really means to be a Death Eater. I really hope this doesn't turn into one of those fics where Draco suddenly turns mushy and is willing to give up everything he has for Ginny... or suddenly start ripping each other's clothes off. It's also when I usually lose interest in the fic. There always has to be a proper reason for that and soon is never the time for them. Anyway, keep it up. I like the quotes you're using as I can definitely make the connections.

Author's Response: Thousand times yes! Yeah, that's why I love Draco so much, he's so complex (unfortunately very hard to write). Anyway, I know where you're coming from about the whole mushy Draco thing. Doesn't really suit him. Not exactly sure where this story will go (I'm planning it out right now, just realizing how hard it is to write a close-to canon story haha!), but I'm going to try my best to keep Draco true to himself. And I'm glad you like the quotes, I was really nervous about that, I don't want it to seem like I'm plagiarizing. Look forward to more reviews :) Thanks so much!

Btw I am a huge H/G fan. Ever since I was 10 and read the first book I just knew they'd end up, same with R/Hr. hahah I saw your biography. Though I think D/G would be far more interesting.

Author's Response: HAHA oh my goodness, I wrote that bio when I was like 14 or something, how embarrassing. I don't want to offend my readers :( I'll go change it now, wow I was ridiculous back then (especially with the title of this story...I really wish I could change it now, oh well haha)

Author's Response: Well I've actually finished the next chapter! But school just started, so I'm trying to find time to edit it, as I'm currently working without a beta. I'm so sorry :( I know what it's like to be left merciless to the choice of a writer. I promise to try and update soon!

Ginny Weasley was on a mission: get Draco Malfoy's attention or die trying. She would prefer to skip the dying part, though…

Draco's Dangerous Dilemma by Anise    (Reviews - 1408)

All Ginny wants is to get the upper hand just once with drool-worthy hunk of man candy and callous playboy Draco Malfoy before he moves on to his next careless conquest. So how did this simple plan lead to time travel, nefarious plots involving the most infamous whorehouse in the wizarding world, and the teenaged Draco’s achingly sweet, chocolate-flavored kisses? Even Draco Malfoy was innocent once, as Ginny learns all too well…

Chapter ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN Quote of the Day:

THE LAST CHAPTER

The minutes ticked by, long enough for Ginny to know that against all reason, all common sense, she still wanted impossible things from him. But she would leave. Even after today, even when her body ached from him and for him, when she could feel that he had begun to shape her to him, she would turn around and leave him. I will, I will, she thought.

“You don’t understand,” said Draco.

“Oh?” Ginny said stiffly. “At least he hadn’t touched her, she thought. She would not be able to find the strength to pull herself away from him, and she knew it.

It's actually the sweetest love scene I've ever read. So so sweet :)

Author's Response: Oh... thanks! :) Yes, I was really trying to show some of that quality between Draco and Ginny. Even in the middle of all that frantic desperate pent-up desire finally being unleashed, Draco does care about her deeply, and I think that comes through in his actions.

hello anise, i absolutely am not a huge fan of fanfics ... except for yours. ive read every single one of your fics and love each one for different reasons. although, i admit, i do get a little disappointed when you don't complete your fics or the chapters aren't as long as i'd like them to be. but that's just me. and you - i lovelovelove your fics. honestly, the fics on the favourites page aren't that great. they're so sappy and i don't at all agree with how the authors characterize draco and ginny. the interaction between draco and ginny is never put together as well as you do. either they're head in heels over each other from the start because of some silly plot line like draco helped her up when she fell....or they start passionately fighting and their arguments are ... kinda laughable. i know, i might be being really mean, but to each his own. i'm soo glad i stumbled into your fics YEARS ago. i still continue and enjoy reading them.

and man, you really GOTTA post the next chapter soooooon. and finish the fic!

Author's Response: Thank you, thank you! (Does the Happy 'Wonderful Thoughtful and Detailed Review' Dance.) This fic WILL be finished. Oh yes. It will be finished. A team of wild plot bunnies couldn't keep me from finishing this fic, I guarantee, the main reason being that so much of it was written and planned out before I ever started possting it. BUT (and being Draco's butt, it's a very nice one,) there's a lot of fic still to come (no jokes will be made about that.) ;)

by the way i loved how you wrote both ginny and draco in this. also i've always wondered if draco feels the same for ginny as she does....care to explain? :)

Author's Response: I can't say for sure, because Draco isn't telling me a lot throughout these chapters-- (runs from butterfly nets.) He has a LOT to hide right now. But the next couple of chapters will have some... interesting developments, let's just say. ;)

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. this was crazy. someone else said this too - i loove ginny's little power thrills. she's so cute. and innocent...for her age :)

Author's Response: You're welcome. Yes, there's some craziness, isn't there? Ginny is innocent for 20 in a lot of ways, partially because in the wizarding world, I think there's some canon evidence that having sex before marriage (for pureblood girls, anyway), is not well thought of. But I also think that it's because in other ways, she isn't innocent. What happened with Tom Riddle/Lucius has left her afraid of intimacy. Luckily, there's always Draco to help her out... ;)

Ugh, I get that some things just have to be done. I just hope Draco doesn't act cold to her next time he sees her ... whenever that is. That and it doesn't take forever for them to get together! It's like they're getting closer and then they're even further apart than before. Really frustrating!

Other than that, you are a seriously skilled writer. I love the way you develop their characters. Like I said earlier, I cannot read any other piece on fanfic...I just can't. I've tried and tried and tried. Not happening. I don't know how you do it but you do it really well. So well done! :)

Author's Response: Oh, something tells me that we'll see Draco before TOO much longer. ;) I think that Draco and Ginny are doing a kind of dance, approaching and then moving further apart, but I will say that from Draco's POV, they could have ended up very, very close. The problem is that it would have needed to be completely on his terms, and Ginny couldn't accept them and still keep herself whole. Thank you so much... and more pretty soon. :)And I was searching the web for expensive cars, and just really, really liked that one!

when you said october 31st at the end of chapter 56 i freaked. but i still checked and i'm so glad to have found this. how long till the next one? :)

also, do you have a fanfic to recommend from another author? if you write fics likes these there might be a chance that someone else writes similarly to you? of course, i don't think anyone can compare but at least close enough?

Author's Response: You are so sweet!! (looks into Magic-8 Ball) (shakes it) Signs Unclear. I have to stop getting these from Walmart.... Anyway, pretty soon, I think. I don't have any on my favorites list, as you found out, but it's really because I just never think of it. There are definitely a few, and some are older, so I might take some time to come up with a list. But right off the top of my head...(feels around on top of head) It's another one of those hair days. Anything by the Okelani sisters is always good. :)
