Sorry for the lack of updates. Am kinda busy and not really in a 'writing' mood.

Also, as an aside, I am giving serious consideration to deleting the following Stories:
Irae Culpa
Oh Dear God
Oh Dear God Smut Cookies (I am uncomfortable writing them in light of JKR's revelation of Ginny's birthday).

WOO HOO!!!!!! I've been AVIDLY following this story on FF.net, but sadly my Java installation is making life interminably difficult so I am most gratified to have discovered that you are posting 'My Mate' here. Wow, I love this story, it's so amusing and your violent!veela characterisation is excellent. I like. A lot. I've read up to the bit where Ginny apparates on ff.net but if you have any more chapters written I would be most keen to read them and would love to be added to a mailing list for chapters (or I could Beta, either way) - Myanceris@hotmail.com. Fantastic work.

I may have reviewed this before, but since I find myself back here, reading it for about the 900th time (not an exaggeration) I thought I'd leave a little note of appreciation. I totally love this fic. I'm addicted to it. When I need something funny and smutty to read, I read this one. Time and again. I usually hate slash, it makes me cringe but this is one of the very few fics that I like. I think it might be your callous approach to Harry's sexuality - it makes me laugh. The Het smut is super-hot too! ;-) So yeah, I just wanted to leave this note to say how much I love this fic.

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!

Heee. Considering that I'm such a shameless review whore when it comes to my own work, I'm terrible about leaving them and even worse at writing them. LOL So I'll say this: The fact that I am still reading your story after 20 Chapters means that I am enjoying the characterisations, enjoying the plot and generally enjoying reading it. (Despite your evil tendancy to build the tension and anticipation to fever-pitch!!! XD ) Yes, at times Ginny has been annoyingly flighty but I like how you use Draco's characterisation to bring the reader back to the heart of the story. I must say I am more sympathetic to Draco than Ginny but I suspect that you wrote it that way? Either way, it's working well. As for the updates, I can hardly complain with my track record can I? *ROFL* I know how it is to have finished posting what was already written and have the pressure of writing the rest - Ex Ir is a perfect case in point. Ha ha ha So all I'll say is 'Keep at it', because I know I'll still look forward to reading the chapters whenever you get around to posting them.

Hee hee, I'm going to be one of the 'Yeah, and another thing' reviewers... LOL

I am tempted to scream 'Wooo Hooo' from the rooftops over this little essay. Nicely written Mynuet. Although I would like to take this opportunity to add a couple more points re: Americanisation of Hogwarts:

1. We in England DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT Slap/hit people 'Upside the head'. This phraseology makes me want to gouge my eyes out and vomit and I immediately stop reading whatever fic I happen to see this in, even if it is amazing and brilliantly written. Eurgh, I just hate it and I know many other Brits that feel the same. 2. Mynuet is right, 'Drugged' is what you are after you've consumed hefty amounts of chemicals that may/may not be legal! LOL 3. I would also like to make a point about American spellings too but I know that technically that isn't an issue (although having MY stories changed to the American spellings of words like 'Colour' and 'Favourite' REALLY upset me...).

I'm also going to make a point about Alternate Universe fics - Specifically the ones in which Ginny was sorted into Slytherin, turns against her family because they are evil Gryffindors and takes the Dark Mark. This is all well and good but surely the point of fanfic is to write within the boundaries set by the Original Fiction? Changing details to fit your plot then calling it an AU fic is a cop-out. I read a very good AU fic once where another of Riddle's artifacts made it into Ginny's hands and her vulnerability to him led to her activating some sort of parallel dimension gateway of sorts, something going wrong, big explosion, Ginny blacks out and wakes up in said Alternate Universe with Draco looking down at her and telling her that he'll help her clear up the mess so she doesn't lose their house any points. It was intelligently written but I think the archive that I read it on has moved and god knows where it is now otherwise I'd link.

But I digress. The point I am trying to make (whilst veering off at a tangent as usual) is that if you are going to write an AU fic, surely you have to explain in your fic how the 'Normal' world about which we are all writing fanfic, suddenly becomes Alternate? You can't just start writing a fic with 'Ginny was so looking forward to returning to Hogwarts this year, she'd made so many friends in Slytherin.' I mean WHAT THE F**K??? Canon states that Ginny is in GRYFFINDOR!!! *head-desk*

Oh and I have my own pet peeve re: Religion in fanfic: I received a review over at HPFF for my story 'Exquisite Irony' forthe chapter in which there is a Naming ceremony. Note the use of the phrase 'Naming Ceremony'. My reviewer clearly hadn't read the chapter and was obviously making some sort of half-baked religious protest because she said, and I quote:

"um, how can voldemort go to a christening?? isn't he, like, evil? i highly doubt that voldemort is a christian..........."

Firstly, Voldemort didn't go to the Naming Ceremony, he turned up at the party afterwards. Secondly, I have made no reference to Christianity in my story other than the celebration of Christmas (which is canon-sanctioned). Which brings me on to my point re: Religion. There seems to be some sort of colliding juxtaposition of religious iconology in HP in that we see a lot of references to Paganism, Merlin etc etc, whereas the main holidays celebrated are Christian. However, we NEVER see any characters actually practising the Christian faith. They celebrate Christmas but they don't go to church. I'm a SEVERELY lapsed Catholic but even I go to church for midnight mass. Having said that, neither do they actively celebrate Pagan feasts either with the Equinoxes and Solstices going unmarked. Which leads me to conclude that JKR is keeping HP as non-religious as possible (but keeping in the 'traditional' holidays so as to not confuse children or offend christians). Ergo, stories in which characters display an overt and predominant religious disposition are not in-keeping with Canon. Bascially authors are using the fanfic medium to plug their own religions and beat us all over the head with them and THAT is my pet peeve.

I think I should stop now before this 'review' begins to rival the article! LOL.

Author's Response: *snerk* If this reviewer thinks you can't be evil and go to a christening, she sure doesn't know much about the history of the christian church.

Further to my earlier review, there is something I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO get off my chest:

In the UK, Front Fastening bras are only worn by strippers and nursing mothers (and believe me they look completely different! LOL). You can buy Front fastening bras, but usually you find them in Ann Summers (a sex shop) with the 'kink wear' and the 'stripper supplies', either that or you find them in Mothercare with the Breast Pumps, Nipple cream and maternity knickers. So when Draco unfastens Ginny's Front fastening Bra I cannot help but be assailed with images of HUGE frumpy maternity bras with their 4 clasps and thick, unsexy straps. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop writing them into smutfic! I think the term Mynuet used when I discussed this point with her was 'Cognitive Dissonance'. Thats not to say that you don't get them here in blighty but the 'normal' front fastening bras (the ones that aren't Maternity or Strippers PVC with Nipple holes/tassles) are as rare as rocking horse shit, and I for one have never worn worn one, nor even tried one on so I VERY much doubt that Ginny/Hermione/Narcissa will have.

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.
