As someone who celebrates Beltane myself, I can assure you that your representation is fine. However, I would have gone a different direction with how Draco dismissed her. He could have either told her it was all about the holiday and tradition, or he could have used the idea that all things come in cycles and their cycle had ended. I like it though. Good work.

I, too have really enjoyed the different themes of the chapters. I thought the diction was new and different. And the imagery was excellent.

The only criticisms I have are the typos sometimes caused confusion and some tenses were not in agreement.

A thouroughly enjoyable mini-series.

I'm exhausted. Could someone please hand me a cigarette? What a fabulous, emotionally evocative and sensual story! Loved your writing style. My favourite part of this tale was the dialogue b/n D&G. Biting and sharp and dead on - all the way to the mutual proposals. What a perfect ending to a perfect story. Thanks much!

Aww... I like the various themes per season; great idea. :) Draco and Ginny are sweet and sassy and angsty, and this story was a pleasure to read. :)

I liked how ginny asked draco to marry her. It really shows how different they are from other couples and how different he is. They've both been through a lot and i think you portrayed their characters very well. i also love the structure you wrote it, like how you skip years/"seasons". i like writing in a similar structure. Hehe, still like the title by the way.

Re: Writer in Real Life or Fandom? No, I'm not a writer by any of the first three criteria that you mentioned. Ironically, I'm also in the medical field, and I'll be graduating as a doctor in 2-3 years. Again and again, I have reasoned to myself concerning which part of Draco's body to pick when it comes to the blood play, but I couldn't come to a proper conclusion because there isn't really any 'safe' place to stab. Still, I don't think I've made the mistake of assuming that my readers do not know anything. Rather, I assumed that my readers would understand that I've used the space given by JRK to formulate a scenario which would warrant a visit to the ER in Real Life, and yet cause relatively little harm to our ferret boy in the wizarding world.

Sure, I get it, its a story - and a darned good one, as a matter of fact...and the S&M doesn't bother me in the least, or I wouldn't have started reading in the first place. It's just that any story has to be believable, and an upper-thigh pulsatile hemorrhage, means trauma to the femoral artery, which requires immediate critical care pursuant to Advanced Trauma Life Support guidelines to prevent hypovolemic shock at best, and exsanguination at worst. Tourniquet, by the way, being the treatment of last resort, since it can lead to limb loss from lack of circulation - and peg leg Draco just doesn't work for me.

Author's Response: Medical care in the HP series are not meant to be believable anyway. Regrowing bones? Killing someone with a curse? Harry surviving a 8 storey fall with only a broken arm? Let's not even mention the wrong number of bones in Harry's pectoral girdle. I don't think it's neccessary to apply proper trauma care nor it's suitable to say whether a certain medical scenario is plausible in the HP world. And no, Draco didn't neccesarily had his femoral artery severed. It may be the main artery in his thigh, but it is relatively well protected by muscles further down from the femoral triangle as well as giving off several branches i.e. the genicular anastomoses, etc. Note that I didn't mention *exactly* where Ginny stabbed him. I rather leave it to the reader's imagination.

If Draco Malfoy has blood "spurting" everywhere after the penknife is removed, he has a severed artery for gods sake, and tourniquet or not, he is more likely than not bleeding to death! Seems to me like sex would be the LAST thing on his mind.

Author's Response: *shrugs* It's a story, honey. And the theme is S&M, if you cared to read the introduction. Usually, not all bloody wounds indicate severe damange. Also, why a tourniquet? I bet you won't understand even if I launch into the anatomical relations of lower limb arteries. I could go into more clinical detail, but there's no need in this case because I've had enough of clinical practice in Real Life.

Hello! I really love this story, I've already read it at, and I was eagerly waiting for the final part! I really hope that 'everything would be fine'... :) Love, liz

Ah! I thought that this was the final fourth chapter! I've been reading this over on Portkey, and I have been patiently awaiting your final installment! I hope that gets up here soon!

Author's Response: Oh, I thought everybody have forgotten about my little mini-series! To be honest, I've a completed version of the final chapter, but I'm not happy with it and I've deleted it. I'm working on a new version now, and it's about 30% done. Hopefully, I'll be able to get it up soon.

Interesting begining. I like how you've put in traditional wicca. You are the first one that I have read that has incorporated it into your story...I think I remember starting to read one about vampires a long time ago, but thats about it. Keep up the good work and hope to read more in the near future.

The dialogue between them was very well done, though at the beginning i was thinking: he's so cold! But it worked very, very well with the mood of the entire thing. (Ginny's so innocent.)I love the pagan rites and rituals; they are so interesting. I have a couple books on that that kind of stuff and I think it sounded pretty accurate to me. And when i read your story title i thought Vivaldi, i guess i'm more of a "musician" than a perv? haha. My favourite season is winter, from the movements. Write/post again soon!

Author's Response: Again, all the details gleaned off the web, and I have no idea how accurate everything was. Thank you for the assurance! I love classical music as well, and I thought nothing would be more fitting than to name the mini-series after a great piece.
