Chapter: Chapter Three: To Pay the Price

Wow. That was excellent. If it weren't for the character death warning at the beginning, I would have thought Ginny would lose her resolve to kill Harry.

I really loved how you portrayed all the emotions in this, and Ginny's ultimate goal merely being to live. I found the idea of getting a stamp on a card to prove you are of 'pure-blood' a little creepy, but can see how this is something the Death Eaterswould do. And, this is minor, but I also loved the idea of throwing a pie in Voldy's face. ;) That seems very satisfying.

Wonderful story, great job!

Author's Response: Anna! *tacklehuggles* Thank you SO MUCH for reviewing (and actually reading my extralong load of utter babble). *giggle*
Sorry if the warning spoilt the story a bit. I guess it could have applied to anyone, but if you got to the end and nobody significant had died yet, well, I suppose it would have been kind of obvious.
As part of the gauntlet prompt thingy, there was a choice to let her NOT kill Harry and lose her resolve, and end the story that way. For some people, killing a character would have been the most sensible thing to do, but my gauntlet character Ginny was a bit of an odd choice...however, I wanted her to kill someone from the start! :D *evil grin*
I think that Ginny - though Gryffindor, probably doesn't possess the sort of inate bravery that Harry (and VERY few others) possess. The goal merely 'living' was something I wanted to keep as to me, it wasn't a selfish thing for her to do. Some people in her situation might die/act rashly (like the Rejected in the queue) but I think that Ginny's way of bearing the pain - patiently - is probably a lot harder.
I'm kind of glad you found the card thing creepy...it was meant to be! It was meant to be a way of putting across how much all the pre-bloods were really the 'same' inthis new society. As long as you're pure, you're okay etc.
*giggle* PIES. (yeah. anyway...)
Thanks for reviewing! *hugs again* ~Suzie xx

…live because someday the world will see light. Someday, things will be better…

Oh dear lord...i am crying...I cant help it, that was so amazing!

I am so surprised how you made Ginny a Death Eater who killed HARRY POTTER, and yet I don't hate her! In fact, you made me respect her in some stange way...!

lol

Oh, that was one of the best stories I've read in a long while!

how did those prompts work? Did they give you some sort of plot for each one, or a sentence to work from, or a certain feel to each one (like humour, sadness, desperation etc.)?

10/10, LOVED IT!!!

Author's Response: *hugs* Thank you so much for reviewing! *squees at reviews* I kind of wanted to do something 'evil' in this one...we had the choice *not* to kill the person, but I kind of thought 'oh what the hell...might as well..' :p The prompts basically gave you a basic skeleton of what to write, and you have to write your character through it...so yeah, like a mini plot. The Gauntlet thread in Three Broomsticks probably explains it better that I do lol... One again, THANK YOU FOR REVIEWING!!! :D ~Suzie

Chapter: Chapter Two: To Walk the Road

Again, TOTALLY AWESOME! Eeeeee! There were just some lines in this chapter that made me smile, even though it is generally very angst-y, such as...

"She wished that she could just pick up another pie and throw it at the Dark Lord; that would wipe the smile off his face…"

And...

"And it doesn’t help that I have a load of poison stuffed up my cloak, Ginny added to herself, with a wry, bitter smile."

hehehe.

Onwards and upwards, then!

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing again! *hugs* One of the gauntlet prompts was 'humor' so I wrote a bit about pies...I was kind of worried that it would stick out a bit amongst all the angst! And..i warn you, the next chapter isn't betaed *shudder* Technically the chapter is still 'with' my beta, but I had to submit it so it would meet the deadline...will probably edit it later *hides*

Author's Response: *squees at review* Not sure about the 'original' as I wrote it from prompts, lol...anyways, thank you! *hugs*
