I've been shipping in the Harry Potter fandom since 2004.

Ships I sail: Draco/Ginny, Marcus/Katie, Harry/Pansy, Lucius/Narcissa, and Fred/Hermione, to name a few HP ones - but really, I'll give anything a shot. I also ship Sarkney from the Alias fandom.

This is absolutely fascinating! It's very well thought out. I don't know how much of this fic you have planned out, but I would hope that in the end, Ginny would somehow have the option to leave Draco instead of never having to have a choice, even if she wants to remain with him. Wonderful, wonderful work.

Owned by Mynuet    (Reviews - 216)

Draco owns the Furies, a quidditch team which just happens to have a certain Ginny Weasley on the roster. After some flying in the rain, their relationship turns physical and may eventually develop a smidgen of plot.

I think, that if I were ever to get too far lost in Sarkney, and too obsessive about Sark (and I have been lately), someone just needs to slap me with some of your D/G and all would be right again. "If you like it, I will too." Best line, ever. I think I'll have to hold off the Sarkney-love boosting to beg for more of this fic.

I had such a fun time catching up on the updates I missed while I was away. I'm really enjoying this ride - I like the Blaise and Luna interactions, and I think Ginny's moving on was written perfectly - not rushed or unbelievable or anything, considering all that happened to her. The tape recorder idea was a great touch, and it just shows how much Draco loves her, that he would go through all that.

Hooray! That was lovely. I especially LOVED Ginny's last line. Those words aren't said lightly to a Malfoy. SO NICE to wake up to.

Awww! I love this! You don't neglect one character in favor of the other - I felt I really got a feel for Harry, Draco, and Ginny. So said, I feel bad for poor Harry! He's truly an imbecile, but a very cute one. I already raved about his confession to liking Ginny, so I'll leave it at that. I find the plot very, very believable. Ginny throwing a snowball just to get a reaction is believable, and Draco wanting to know why and suddenly being fascinated with her was done very, very well - not rushed or anything, I didn't feel like "What? But he didn't even KNOW her and now he keeps staring at her?!" So yeah, that was written perfectly. Your language is crisp and clear and even really witty, and just, damn, so easy to read and follow the scenes and giggle at Draco's reactions. This is the ultimate holiday fic, and I'm so glad I finally got a chance to read it. I look forward to your next update.

Author's Response: THANK YOU. Seriously, that means a lot - especially coming from someone whose own writing I admire. I'm so, so glad it didn't feel rushed and that it does feel believable. *breathes sigh of relief before returning to writing next chapter*

"Maybe that snowball had hit him harder than he'd thought." I LOVED THAT! Bringing it back to the beginning! *cheers* I really liked this. First of all, you've definitely ended my "Go with Draco! But...Harry's nice too!" mentality. That was done very well, how Harry was just miffed about his rival and not Ginny. Loved what you did with Euan! Good luck with chapter 7; I can't wait to see how it (might) come to an end!

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!

AH! This is the first time I've had a chance to read fic, and just I missed this update! The new chapter is WONDERFUL-entertaining and amusing. I can't wait to read the next chapter!

Author's Response:
Ves says: Tee hee. We aim for entertaining!

Date: Jul 14, 2006 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter Eight – Sharks With Microphones

I've been looking forward to this update :) I love how you work in the chemistry between Draco and Ginny so subtly so that someone else (naturally not a D/G shipper) could point out no there's nothing between them, while we could argue YES THERE IS! EVEN THE REPORTER NOTICED! It keeps me on my toes :) Brilliant update - amusing and Ginny's situation is so real.

Author's Response: Ves says: Yes, yes. In our world, all reporters are just dying to see the slightest hint of D/G because they are all hardcore shippers.
Myn says: What you don\'t know is that the reporter has been writing D/G fanfic for ages. The opportunity to finally publish her \'why they are secretly together\' article in the newspaper for reals is a lifelong dream come true. ;)

WHEEE! That's what this fic made me feel like saying really loudly. WHAT a clever plot! I loved the situation you put them in. The dialogue was snappy and the innuendos were perfect. I love how you put them at No. 12; I had a feeling that might have been where they were. Ginny was fabulous, and Draco...I can just imagine him, glazed-eyed and steaming and hot while doing it. I enjoyed this thoroughly! Thanks for the laughs!

I really hope you don't think this is pretentious of me to say or anything, but I sincerely think "Slow Burn" is the best fic that you've posted, and I honestly don't say that lightly. Your lines make sense - they all seem to have a double meaning. I am not explaining this very coherently, but it's very hard for me to when I'm over the moon about this. The Draco and Ginny - everything I love about this ship. EVERYTHING. And I sympathize with Harry (again).

Hi there! I found a link to this little cookie via the good_dg community at livejournal. I haven't read "Unbidden Desires" yet, but this tibit definitely made me interested. Is Grant asking questions on behalf of Draco? A girl can hope, right? Anyway, I suspect Grant will be an antagonist, so good work on building that!

Author's Response: Antagonist? Oh, yeah; with a capital "A". Glad you found this intriguing. I'd love it if you would read the rest! :)

Points all the way through. Blackmailing for reviews and the "Ferret" comment never, ever fail to rankle me. Here's to hoping this will be kept in mind when we're all writing another fic.
