lol! but snape seems a little TOO nice to ginny....
An interesting take on Ginny's discovery of the Bat-Bogey Hex. Excellent one-shot.
The relationship between those two is certainly progressing... :D
This was another very cute addition to the "Severus in Profile" series, and I really love your characterization of Ginny! I hope she does manage to invent a spell! As usual, Severus was completely IC, and he showed the more... humorous side of himself, I suppose. I'm glad he has someone like Ginny who trusts him. :D He's earned it!
Author's Response: Thanks! This was my first attempt at writing from her POV, and she turned out to be fun. As you can tell, I've been wondering what these two really think of each other for some time!
Wow, interesting! I think I like your way with Snape and Ginny just as much as your Snape/Minerva. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks! Good to see you here again! There's more Severus/Ginny coming along, I think, but it's turning out to be hard going. Wish me luck...
That was really good. I especially liked the last paragraph! Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, Severus and Ginny do seem to want to interact some more.
:) I would put you on myfav author list... but.... That seems too extreme and stalkerish. But I will all ways read your stories. I loved this one :) but I wish I was Ginny. Even though she is fictional.
Author's Response: Extreme and stalkerish? Really, I don't mind being favorited if you wish to! :) Ginny is in a pretty nice spot at the end of this, isn't she? Her poor brothers, on the other hand... Thanks for reviewing!
*sighs happily* Severus/Ginny. Innocent... or really not so innocent, but not smutty. I very much enjoyed that! And Iliked your description of the Bat-Bogey Hex. It's one thing for her brothers to fear it, or for her to have hit Malfoy with it, but we don't really know exactly what it does, do we? And your description was of something *I* would certainly fear ;).
Author's Response: I love the Bat-Bogey Hex. It has all the elements of a good hex -- a little scary, a little ridiculous, a little embarrassing... I think these two are going to have to keep interacting. They're fun. Thanks for the review!
that was so good, so that's how the bat-bogey hex came into existence. i loved snape in this, he was so funny, but not really oc.
Author's Response: Thanks!
I like this. Ginny and her hexws I am surprised Snape is helping her with hexes, and I like the way she screwed him in soap making. New topic I have been tracking a story called reprocussions and it is no longer in muggelnet can you tell me what is going on?
Author's Response: I have no idea what might have happened to the story; have you tried Googling it? If it went un-updated for a long time, it may have vanished in the spring cleaning. Thanks for the review!
Absolutely brilliant. You've done it again!
Wonderful Snape characterisation. There was something almost Dumbledore-esque about the way he subtly told Ginny what to do, although it was, quite naturally, somewhat more evil and conniving than anything Dumbledore would say, lol.
I also very much loved the following little subtlety:
Ron was acting strangely anyway, prying into her life if she asked how he was, blushing about nothing, and sneaking off. It couldn’t possibly be a girlfriend; someone would have told her that ages ago.
I do love it how you've got your own Potterverse, where all your stories weave together to form a whole. That's part of what I love about reading your work.
This story is, of course, also a brilliant explenation of how Ginny learned her excellen Bat-Bogey Hex.
Hm... Can't think of anything else at present. Very good work, anyhow! Keep writing, you know I love it! :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Now that all the stories weave together, I'm stumped -- what if I want to AU myself all of a sudden? This came about because I joked that SS/HG didn't work for me as well as SS/GW, and here came the plotbunnies on parade. Funny how kidding around can do that.
"Oooh! OOh, OOh OOOH (Waving arm in air and using best Arnold Horshack voice) Professuh Viridian, what spell is she going to invent!"
Sigh. I know I will have to wait.
They both seem quite in character, although I suspect that the nuances of your Snape now seem even more in character to me than the original... I've never seen Ginny done this well. I especially like seeing how Prof. Snape manages to be more "honest" than Ginny has any intention of being.
(spares everyone long digression on the behavior of oppressed populations and relatively more successful members of same.)
I feel that soap recipe has further plot potential......
Author's Response: Hmm. I responded and the ether ate my reply. Weird. Anyway -- oppressed populations noted. I think this relationship has all sorts of potential, don't you? Thanks for the review! Again!
Wonderful story! Your work of Ginny's character is very accurate in my opinion, and even when the story may not show the actual use of the jinxes, I think that you wrapped it up quite good. The very ending could be my favourite part :)
Very good job, once again!
Author's Response: Thank you! I was a little nervous about Ginny, actually; she's relatively new territory. I like the looming uses of the jinxes -- pregnant with potential, and you can just see grief coming for the twins from a mile off... *grin* At some point, Ginny is going to have to cook up something on her own, isn't she? That'll be fun. We have a whole year of DADA for her to work with, too. 'Scuse me while I go feed some bunnies.
I still think Ginny's a lot like Lily, I guess I'll always feel that way. I like that Severus tries to help her out, it seems like something the Prince would do. I wonder how she would react to finding out exactly who wrote those little spells.
Thanks for another great story to read.
Author's Response: I think I read somewhere that JKR said Lily was more like Ginny than like Hermione. It made me wonder what Severus thought of Ginny, and -- stories. I'm wondering that now, too, but I'm also trying to decide what the look was on Severus' face when he discovered Draco Bat-Bogey-Hexed by Ginny.
Nice plot. I like the story!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Ha! What a great explaination as to how Ginny mastered the Bat-Bogey Hex. I loved Snape in this one, too.
Author's Response: Thanks! It's interesting to put those two in the same room, and see whether we get the Professor or the Prince.
