*cries a trillion tears for Ron, while pouring firewhisky on his grave...* Eilime!! O.o I'm so estatic over this update! whoOt! *chants 'No Return, No Return'* Only thing though is the Harry/Hermy thing...Ugh...WHY?!! @.O I still LOVE this whole story....Love it, love it, love it! The Draco/Ginny conversation in the RoR was so good. I read it like three times! I love the banter between those two. Excellent! Bravo to you! Oh, and I'm glad u killed off Lucius! Yay!
Author's Response: *joins Bon_Y_Bon369 at Ron's grave* I'm glad you enjoyed the update! About the H/Hr thing - I'm sorry but you can't have everything. This is my story, chica. I'm expanding my writing abilities by writing different pairings for my stories. So clench those buttocks and read, damnit, read! I'm happy that you liked the D/G conversation. You read it three times? Did it get better every time or do you suffer from Alzheimer? I'm glad you liked the little row. Thank you!! Yes, Lucius was so ruining my day, so he went bye bye.
FINALLY! Wonderful chapter, though I hate that Ron’s dead. I loved Draco in that first part of the story; he’s very rational and his character really stands out. Hermione was sent to the Hospital Wing, Draco didn't know where they brought Ron. Letters were sent in the middle of the night. No one bothered to order Draco, Harry and Ginny to bed. What a powerful and simple description – I really liked it because you could sense the serenity and sorrowfulness even without endless description. The conversation between Hermione and Lavender I liked really much, I don’t know why because it wasn’t a particularly big scene but it was very significant in my opinion in defining how Hermione has felt towards Lavender since Year 6 and how she felt about Ron. The Draco/Ginny part of the story is really intriguing and I can’t wait till the next chapter and see what happens next with those two. Poor Draco in the end. Ginny was a bit tactless… Great chapter! Love the long chapters, by the way! Looking forward to chapter 10. Oh wait, I almost forgot – some of Draco’s rambling was really funny. “Otherwise you would have asked, "You weren't knitting turquoise mittens or saving a cat from a tree?"” …and… “Do you want me to hand out fliers or adopt twenty kids or donate my money to lonely bikers in Wonderland or the protection of cats?” Well done! *10*
Author's Response: Yes, Draco is really put to the test in the beginning. I see why you thought the Hermione/Lavender conversation was necessary. I really liked it too. I'm glad you like the Draco/Ginny aspect. Chapter 10 is in the works... I'm glad you liked those quotes :) Thank you for another encouraging review!
Wow I am the first to review! WooHooo! Y did Ron have to die!!!!!!! I know so that Harry and Hermione could be together :( But I am still sad. Can't wait for the next chapter though!
Author's Response: No, Ron did not die because of that! What an evil writer I would be! I understand you're sad, everyone would be. I'm glad you'll be sticking around for the next chapter! 'Til then...
OMG! You killed Kenny!! LOL! Holy Testicle tuesday! Ronald Billius Weasley is Dead. Great Chapter Stupid Lucius!
Author's Response: *smiles maliciously while standing on Kenny's head in stiletto heels* Yes, I'm sorry... "Testicle Tursday"? Erm, okay, yeah, sure. Lucius really does stink. I'm glad you liked the chapter!
I hope Draco is ok. I enjoyed reading the battle outside the riddle house it was really cool. Draco is risking a whole lot returning so I hope if he gets seriously injured or killed that Harry or Ginny will avenge his demise.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked the battle. Yes, Draco is risking a lot. We'll see what happens...
I guess I forgot to review this one. Whoops. Umm...I really like this chapter and thought it was geniously written. Draco is so suave. Hahaha
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you like Draco.
No WAY did that happen! You are cruel! Brilliant, but cruel! Awesome chapter, though I’m not fond of the ending (wonder why…) I’m SO looking forward to the next chapter. What a sad one it’ll be. I loved the ‘saving Hermione’-part of this chapter; I actually though it hadn’t worked at first. Though Harry and Ron did manage to take off the spell, Hermione was still unconscious – I hope she’ll make it through. The Draco/Voldemort conversation was really good; It was very realistic and sad all those thoughts Draco had about what he and Harry was and if Harry had done the same for him etc. Wonderful writing. I also loved what Draco told Zabini, “You're a imperceptible, plebeian, self-righteous gnome with a sordid, belligerent idea of loyalty towards a carnivorous, capricious man who is, strangely enough just that, a man - undoubtedly a very ugly man with luminous red contact lenses, but still a human being - who has convinced the underprivileged, abjectly despondent people that following his supposedly insurmountable greatness would be the best thing to do. – Could you repeat that? – No.” Hilarious. Ginny was great in this chapter; how she got past that DE and her reaction on finding Draco with the Mark. Lucius Malfoy a sexist? Brilliant. BUT! I refuse to believe what happened in the end (though you had made a warning about that from the beginning). Hurry up with the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you for your, once again, incredibly flattering review! I'm so glad you liked it. Yes, they did manage to save Hermione. We'll see how that turns out. I'm glad you liked Draco when he talked to Voldemort. I felt like the story needed Draco's doubts; doubts that he hadn't contemplated before but suddenly just realised he had overlooked. I mean, he had just been too caught up in this adventure and kind of taken things for granted, and now Voldemort cruelly makes him face the what if's. Lol, I'm glad you liked that diatribe of Draco's! I'll hurry up with chapter nine, I promise. Again, thank you!
wow.. I just screamed. I love it but I hate it. it makes me want to cry.. but you wrote it very well.. you'd better finish this story very soon.
Author's Response: I understand your love/hate situation. But thank you, I'm glad you liked it!
Wow...when I was reading the end, I thought it was going to be Ginny jumping in front of him. I didn't even think of poor Ron.....oh wow....I really can't wait until the next chapter!! Good job!
Author's Response: Yes, it was poor Ron... Thank you!
WOW! that was amazing! I can't wait to read the next chapter. Is Harry ACTUALLY under his control! O the suspense...
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the great review!
NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! RON!!!!! *sob* how...could...you!!!! *splutter* lol. Brilliant chapter. you are very clever with cliff hangers and i love the way you write ginny and malfoy. oh...i mean draco. :) old habits die hard. please keep writing! cant wait to read the next chapter! oh PLEASE let ron be alright. i would really miss the brilliant monologues you write for him. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Yes, I'm sorry. But thank you so much for your great compliments! I'm really pleased to hear you liked Ron's monologues ;) Thank you!
My Favorite story by far. LOVED Forbidden, but this is my all time favorite. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!!!!!!!! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you also liked Forbidden. 'All time favourite' - *hands out cookies*
Yay! You updated! Great chapter (and long). The story is progressing nicely and I’m dying to know what happens next. I liked Ginny in this chapter; she was funny and determined. But Zabini? What a wanker. Draco’s response to Ginny telling him to get his wand out was great! “Aren’t we the naughty one?” The frustrated, restless, talkative Ron was hilarious. I can totally relate to talking (well, maybe not that fast) about different subject and that the monologue just seems to expand and go on and on. “Swedish hooligans.” Brilliant. Harry’s thoughts about Draco’s whereabouts and the mention of Pansy was also funny. I seem to have only talked about the funny bits, but I feel there will be more dangers ahead. I’m still so anxious for Hermione! And what’s happened to Draco? I know you can’t answer this, since it would spoil the story. When Draco and Ginny had saved Harry and Ron I was like, “Yay, finally something good happens and they’re one step closer to saving Hermione.” But then Draco just had to get himself in trouble! Bad timing… Such tragic ironi… I’ll stop now, and leave you to get on with chapter 8! Bye!
Author's Response: Yes, this was the longest chapter so far. I'm glad you liked Ginny :) and it's good to hear you like a lot of different parts of this story. You're right; the next chapter won't be as light. Draco getting in trouble just then... tragic ironi, indeed. Thank you so much for the great review!
Good story so far. Ginny gets a little bit out of character with malfory, which gets very annoying, but other than that, awesome plot. Please keep writing and update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm sorry to hear you didn't like Ginny in this chapter. I'm very pleased to hear, though, that you like the plot. That is a great compliment, so thanks!
that was a really good chapter.. I liked how long it took Harry and Ron to remember Malfoy.. and Malfoy was really good in this cahpter.. you should update this story as well as forbidden
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked Draco, too!
I love this story its great !! cant wait 4 the nexted chapter !! well laters
Author's Response: Thank you!
Great chapter! Though I’m sad that Harry and Ron didn’t get to save Hermione, I’m really intrigued by what will happen next with Draco and Ginny. Great job with the foreshadowing of the curse, the one Hermione’s under. To go into more specific places of the chapter, I liked how Draco got rid of Seamus. It was not fun for Seamus, of course, but Draco was so indifferent and it made it funny. Draco and Ginny’s conversation in the closet was hilarious. “Talking about nauseating, should-be-illegal teenage romances, what about you and Finnigan?” Brilliant. I can’t wait to read the next chapter! Awesome writing; keep it up! *10*
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, the curse appeared in the previous chapter; I'm glad you liked it. Seamus was indeed being treated a bit indifferently by Draco. I'm glad you enjoyed that scene; I enjoyed writing it. The Draco/Ginny conversation was basically the main part of this chapter, so I'm glad you liked it. Thank you so much for another great review, Alizee!
Ooooh yay updateupdateupdate! XD *happy dance* Soo, I reaalllyy wanna know what's next now! I hope 'Mione is okay... Great chappie. *~*WelcomeToParadise*~*
Author's Response: I'm glad you want to keep reading! And thank you!
Ooh more dangers...! Loved this chapter. I like how Harry and Draco are slowly accepting each other. I just noticed all the chapters' titles end with "-tion" (I don't know if I'm slow...) and I think it's cool. Can't wait for the next chapter; your writing is amazing.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! Yes, the titles are the same in that way :) Thank you so much for the compliment!
Nice story so far. I feel sorry for Ginny though, not being included. I cant wait to see what happens next. Please update soon! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! Ginny will play a big part in the future. Look out for the next chapter!
