I'm a faithful stalker of the brilliant writers of D/G goodness - hence, my presence here. Though, from time to time, I've even been known to dabble a bit myself. Work and life hinder my reading/writing ability, so while there may be lengthy stretches between reading/writing, I remain ever loyal to the combination that is Fire and Ice.

The following disclaimer applies to all of my fiction posted here: I own nothing; it all belongs to JK Rowling (and to whomever she's given her permission). I have been in no way compensated for dabbling in her world. I do this only for the enjoyment of writing about some of my favorite characters in literature. :o)

Reviewer: LovesFantasy Signed
Date: Jan 23, 2008 Title: Chapter 10: CHAPTER NINE – What He’d Always Wanted

I loathe admitting it, but I really love the whole “secret pen pal” plot line. It’s one of those classic plots for DG interaction that leaves so much room for warm fuzzies and great character development. This was a great twist on that theme.

I found Draco simply delightful, even though he was a much “softer” character than you usually find him – not nearly as derisive as he could have been. Even though you left out that side of him, I didn’t feel as though he was lacking it. He was so often referred to as a prat throughout the story that I just assumed he really had been.

Ginny was fantastic. I loved that she had a little spice and pizzazz in her characterization. I’m a big fan of a Ginny who knows how to stand up for herself. Harry and Ron’s disgust for Malfoy wasn’t over done (thank Merlin!) but still well established. I think I might have liked to see a bit more of Pansy, but that’s probably because I’ve got a soft spot for her. ;o) I loved Arthur’s and Narcissa’s conversations with their children – great parental touch! Draco’s “sputtering” as he came out of the floo to see Ginny to the ball was amusing.

There is much more I enjoyed, but I’m working between chapters and can’t remember everything I was going to comment on. I should be grateful that I can read while at work (and I am!!), but it frustrates me when work gets in the way of my reading. lol!! Anyway, thanks for the lovely story; it helped pass the day away. (Sorry for the rambling!!) :o)

Author's Response: OH MY GOSH! Your review made my day. Seriously. It has really stunk. I think you officially are my favourite person. YAY! I\'m SO glad you enjoyed it. I\'m so grateful for the review. It means a lot - especially today! Feel free to comment ANY time. ;)

Date: Jan 27, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Much Better

*squeals* I am overcome with the desire to bounce around and scream, “OMG! That was sooooooo good!” But I usually at least /attempt/ to be /somewhat/ sophisticated and say /something/ constructive when I review (excuse the “/” in place of italics). Anyway, I just adored that story!!

First and foremost, I loved the play with Draco knowing Legilimency! I have thought about using that idea myself a few times. I’m so glad I didn’t attempt it because I don’t think I could have given it the justice it deserved (and you provided!). I haven’t really seen anyone play with that idea much, so I’m really glad that you did.

I’m going to join in the ranks of others begging for a sequel. It’s just far too fun a story to leave it as it is… right!? *crosses fingers and hopes* It is as you said, “a brilliant beginning.” :o)

Author's Response: *giggles madly* This is actually my LEAST favourite of all my fic - and that includes my very first fic - a Harry/Ginny ending to to the series (that incidentally was less fanficcy than the actual ending - someone commented that THIS was how they would end it and that they would paste it into the back of their DH) but yeah - I\'m SOOO thrilled you liked this. I wasn\'t ever happy with it- it was technically my first Draco/Ginny as it was started before \'RtP\' but I\'m glad that people like it. :) You\'re a dear. Now -- I promise -- Victory\'s Prize is my best.... it\'s coming up. (though I suppose I start with my fic exchange fic as of Feb 1st.) ;)

Reviewer: LovesFantasy Signed
Date: Jun 30, 2006 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I really enjoyed it. The ending was a bit unclear, however. At first I thought that he was just in a drunken haze and thought he saw her, then I thought maybe she was there – like a second bartender or something. But why would he talk about her like that if he could see her. So I finally made a rather shaky guess that she was the bartender (polyjuice or something) which I was able to confirm with your other reviews/responses. Anyway, adored the title! Over all it was an enjoyable story, just might want to think about making the ending a little more clear.

Author's Response: yes, ginny was the bartender. there was no polyjuice she was just hacked off at him because he wouldnt tell her he loved her and he was annoyed that he had to tell her. he thinks she should know because of all hes done/given her. thats why he starts talking to her like its not her at first. i\'ll go back and try and make it clearer. it was even less clear in my first draft! im glad you liked the title. it was just temporary till i thought of a better one but then i decided that i liked it and it suited the story well. thank you for the review. :D

Author's Response: i cant for the life of me figure out how to make it clearer without blatantly stating it, which i don’t want to do. i understand how its unclear but i cant think of a way to unfuzz it. Sorry :(

Date: Jan 23, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: 20 Random Facts that you’d Never Guess About Draco Malfoy

First of all, this is brilliant! It felt like I was learning all these little secrets about him in hushed whispers behind his back or even mingling in a crowd at his funeral or something. So that was my overall impression, now I’ve got to say a little something on my favorite points… even though I could say something about each one of them… :o)

7. I think this one is just so sweet. Lucius would say love is power, but the way you word it leaves the reader open to interpret his tone and meaning. I loved Draco realizing that he wasn’t the one with the power. I can just see the expression on his face as he comes to that understanding! lol!

8. “Red with freckles.” What a GREAT color!! Seriously, making the phrase itself a color was a fantastic idea. Totally loved that.

9. I adore Draco in glasses!! I wish more people put him in glasses – even if just for reading. It’s a drool-worthy mental image if I ever saw one…!

14. This is another image of Draco that I think is downright sinful. I can see his fingers smudged in charcoal, glasses sliding down his nose, and a rough sketch of Ginny on a heavy sheet of parchment…

18. I think this bit of information is what I would ask JK if I was ever lucky enough to meet her. I’m dying to know what form his Patronus would take. A jaguar would suit him very well, I think.

So… Sorry for the length, but I couldn’t resist babbling. Your story/list invokes such great mental images, ideas, spin offs, etc. Excellent!!

Author's Response: HEEEE!! That was probably the best review EVER! Thanks SO SO much. I\'m glad you enjoyed, and I\'m glad you reviewed. You made my day! ;)

Reviewer: LovesFantasy Signed
Date: Aug 29, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Under

Heart-wrenching, brutal, and utterly captivating... The images provoked by your poetic writing were simply stunning and poignantly haunting.

I was completely sucked in from the start. The delicate “O” of Malfoy’s lips in the beginning gave him a soft, almost angelic look – hinting that there was much more to his story than simply being an evil Death Eater. Pulling his body ashore, “desperate for company of any kind,” was a particularly heartbreaking image. It seemed there was more to their relationship, or why would she look at him in the ‘tones’ that she did. “Dead, he looks so young.” That was a simple sentence that actually spoke /volumes/ about who Draco Malfoy really was.

The way you describe the underworld painted such vibrantly drab images in my mind. My breath caught in my throat when I first realized that she was, in fact, going to turn around; I could feel the pain (from them both) practically radiating from my monitor.

Honestly, there have not been many stories on here (within this category of angst) that have moved me to the depths that this one has. I immediately thought of Red Hot and went in search of the author, so I could reference the story. I’d honestly forgotten you’d written it! So it fits that these two stories conjure similar feelings for me and leave me with the same breathless, heart-broken ache for our main characters.

Exceptionally well done!

Reviewer: LovesFantasy Signed
Date: Jan 23, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Grief

All right, this one is definitely my favorite of yours so far. I’ve got a huge fondness for psychology (it was my major and I’m currently searching out Masters programs in the field). So not only did it tap into a personal interest of mine, but the hidden depth of the story itself was just delicious! I dunno if you meant to do it or not, but was Ginny going through the stages of grief as well!? It certainly appeared to be the case… There were subtle hints to it along the way, though the story was given from more Draco’s POV and so I couldn’t be 100% sure.

Bargaining is a hard one to showcase. I thought you did very well in keeping it restrained and snarky. I think that was the best way to do it, because he could so easily have turned whiney and that doesn’t fit Draco’s character at all!

Okay, so I have to mention – even though it’s got little to do with my actual review – that you used one of my most favorite phrases (“starve in the hedgerows”). I don’t think I’ve ever read that in a fic before and I just about fell out of my chair. And in that same section… “how much will it cost me to end this?” Wow, had I been Ginny, I would have felt slapped across the face with those words.

I adored Blaise in this fic. He was snarky and witty (a lovely combination and my favorite presentation of this character). Thursday night’s section was very, very well written. Without being overly dramatic, the stage of depression was clearly and eloquently displayed.

Pansy’s “but it was a happy sigh” made me grin. It was the an excellent way of tying it all together. (And I got my earlier wish of seeing more of Pansy! I like her as semi-redeemable, which she appeared to be.)

So, here’s another long review – and probably my last for today. Though I’ve very much enjoyed your stories, so I’ll likely be back for more! ;o) I’m glad you haven’t minded my lengthy reviews… I can be a bit wordy, but I love to really get into a story and fully express what I like about it (especially when it’s appreciated). You’re an excellent writer!! I look forward to reading more from you. :o)

Author's Response: Oh my goodness... MIND them? I think you may just need to be my new fandom girlfriend. These are the best reviews I have every gotten. Seriously. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying and then leaving such brilliant reviews! This is one of my VERY favourite fics of mine. The exchange generally does good things for me apparently. I love Blaise/Luna and wanted to feature it and I came across a Pansy/Terry fic once and thought I\'d try it here. Starve in the Hedgerows... P&P for the win! ;) Thanks! *smooches*

Was it difficult to end it like that? I would have had a hard time watching them walk away like that, I think. Although, the image of Harry immobilized and shocked makes me giggle. Ron upside down and in a corset – lol! Lovely! They absolutely deserved it!!

I think my favorite part of the story was the scene when Ginny asked him to run off with her. It was beautifully written and conjured up some fantastic images (dark, dusty, soft looks, and hoarse whispers…). That scene specifically was very movie-like in my mind. :o)

The story in and of itself was excellent as well. Very engaging and with the right amount of rollercoastering emotion. I would have been beside myself to get such a gift for my birthday! Lol! Your friends are very lucky if that’s what they’re gifted. ;o) I can’t wait to read more of your work.

Author's Response: HEEE! The return of my favourite reviewer! It\'m really glad you liked it. This one was actually really hard to write. I\'ve only ever written two birthday fics and both were late. Right now - this year I\'m kinda bogged in my new fic for this friend... but it\'s not Draco/Ginny. It\'ll be Tracey Davis/Theo Nott. But yeah - I loved that \'runaway with me\' part of the scene -- it was the longest part to write too. I wanted it to be perfect. I can see it so clearly in my head, so I\'m glad you could see it too. Seriously- you are the bestest reviewer ever. *smooches*

Ginny Weasley's obsession with chocolate leads to a rather interesting development.
