I thought this was a very well crafted story. My only problem with it, was that i could not identify it with Draco and Ginny.

Author's Response: Thanks! I wanted to have everything be very vague, as if you were privy to Ginny's thoughts as she thought them, and it wasn't until I read an earlier review that I realized it could be misconstrued as another woman with Draco. Perhaps adding in a descriptive word that fit Ginny would have helped. However, I am working on a companion piece that should clear up a lot of things and flesh out the background a bit.

So when will you be writing more stories?

Author's Response: I'm in the process of writing a companion piece to this fic. The plot is fleshed out, and the rough is almost complete- then there will be a lot of editing. I am hoping to have it done by the end of this week, but we will see.

Good god that was depressing. Beautifully written with some gorgeous imagery, but bloody depressing.

A great story, I loved all of the characterisations, especially little Scorpius, he was lovely.

Well done and keep it up, it was amazing! xx

Author's Response: Thanks! I tried to focus really hard on making the reader feel as if he or she were in Ginny's shoes, so I while I don't want anyone to be sad- I kind of am glad that people are after reading this. :) Thanks again for the review!

I keep thinking about this story and wondering what the background story is! That piece of someone's scalp on Draco's boots is really bothering me - what the heck is he doing?

Author's Response: I definitely have a companion piece in the works that tells the story of the same night, but from Draco's perspective. That, however, is all I am going to say for now. :) I am hoping to have it finished within a week and posted soon after- I hope your curiosity lasts until then.

Okay...that was dark and twisted. You certainly know how to set a mood. The description of the boots was very disturbing. I'm going to go hug my dog.

Author's Response: Thanks! It certainly seems to have done what I have intended it to do- Maybe you can read something really fluffy and that will help. :) Thanks again for reviewing!

Fabulously well written, wonderful plot and very, very sad. I felt hopeless after I finished reading this. That means you did your job well; you made me feel.

Author's Response: I am glad that my story was able to evoke an emotional response- that you were able to feel the what Ginny was feeling. Thanks so much for the review. They give me a lot of encouragement to write the next story, and the next.

I LOVE experimental and vague pieces. ^^ Now that I've read it, I could easily picture the characters being Narcissa and Lucius, if it weren't for you directly naming Scorpius (which is spelled without an o, by the way). What a sad relationship for Ginny and Draco to have. :( I can't wait to read more from this universe. I'm hoping for a happy ending, though, at the moment, it doesn't look like there will be one. And if there isn't, that's okay too. I just like happy. :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I hadn't even thought of this from the perspective of Malfoy's parents, but it seems that the situation would have been eerily similar. I still am not sure what course their relationship will take as I add more stories to this Universe, but ultimately, I enjoy a happy ending too. I just hope it doesn't come too late.

I liked the vagueness, and the scenario you've constructed all from one perspective.

You do a great job of conveying the environment, but my one criticism is that the description is a little bit too much; a little flowery. The use of descriptors sometimes becomes distracting rather than supplemental. For example: "A wave of rumbling thunder crashed in the sky above the lonesome manor—the lone figure jerked upright, her eyes clouded with sleep, a single hand anxiously massaging her disheveled hair. Hastily kicking the slippery sheets from her legs, she blinked her eyes and strained against the perpetual darkness." The repeated use of "lone" and "lonesome" in the same sentence reduces the effectiveness of the adjective, and "perpetual darkness" is vague and doesn't make too much sense. Perpetual indicates a duration of time rather than a depth or intensity which is what I think you're trying to convey.

You really have great talent with describing an environment, but your prose would greatly benefit with a more selective use of descriptors.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for such a great review! I would have to agree that when I write I tend to be too descriptive- I am constantly fighting it, and sometimes let my imagination escape through my words. I actually was trying to convey a duration of time in regards to the darkness- everlasting darkness, if you will. I wanted to draw a parallel between how she perceives her world, and how it actually is. In reality, we know that this story takes place during the night, and the sun will rise, but through the fog of her mind, she cannot see anything but darkness and hopelessness.

ahhhh *sighs happily* there's hope yet. I will not despair and will plan an eventual D/G happy ending for this fic in my mind. Now, all i need to do is for you to make it into a reality.....

Thanks for answering my questions and I'm really glad that you're doing a companion piece. I'm really sad that Draco and Ginny no longer love each other. Is their love even salvageable? Besides that, I'm so happy that you're writing more from this Universe because it seems like Voldemort has won the war, something in fics that I really like. Hopefully you'll be updating soon. :)


Author's Response: There is still a lot I am discovering about this particular relationship, but seeing as Draco and Ginny trump everything, I'm sure they can overcome the obstacles in their path. It just may take a while.

I don't understand this story at all. Who is it talking about? The child is Scorpius, so is the woman Astoria? Is it Ginny, and she just named her son Scorpius, too? And what's Draco doing - Death Eater activity? So does that mean Voldemort wasn't destroyed in this story?

Author's Response: Well, I knew it was bound to happen. :-) This one-shot is meant to be purposefully vague, as I wanted the reader to see it from the eyes of the main character, who does happen to be Ginny. Since she already knows everything that is going on in the world, and how it came to be that way, she does not think about it consciously, therefore I did not want to lay out a background. I wanted you to read things as she thought them. The things I was hoping would come through, although I knew it may be difficult, were that this world is suffering through some dark times, Ginny fears for her child, Draco and Ginny's marriage is a farce, and they no longer love each other. I plan on doing a companion piece to this from Draco's POV that will hopefully clear a few things up. Thanks so much for the review!

This fic is very dark and stirring. You have an amazing talent with imagery. Through out the entire fic, I could imagine everything that was going on. I just wanted to clarify some things though: Did their marriage fall apart because of his involvement with Voldemort and the dark arts? And the last line, does it mean that he has disappeared forever? I know some authors like to leave the ending open, but I have taken on a sort of obsessed what?-please-let-there-be-hope-of-a-happy-d/g-ending mood. I would love it if there was some sort of sequel piece. I am a huge fan of dark!draco, but I really hope he and his marriage is still salvageable. Aside from all that annoying commentary, this was really such a beautiful and haunting piece and I deeply enjoyed it. This one's sticking with me for a long time. Good job.


Author's Response: Thanks so much! It is meant to be very vague, and more about what Ginny, the main character, is going through, than the plot. However, there will be a companion piece coming up soon from Draco's point of view, and I plan on doing several other pieces in this "Universe", which is basically a world torn apart by the war and Voldemort.
