ohmygoodness! i absolutely loved that story! it was so...real.
thank you for this.
i love reading d/g fics but some of them just dont seem even remotly possible. this one did.
Author's Response: Why, thank you very much for coming by and reading my little story! I always tell people that this is one that makes me proud because it has more of me in it, emotion-wise and I had SUCH a good time writing it. I am pleased you were able to enjoy it.rnrn ~Nicole/NikkiSue
Wow, NIkki that was incredible... that was so sweet. *sigh*
There was a litle typo -> "After coming out of hiding and proclaiming his loyalty not to Voldemort but the Order, Draco because an invaluable asset." I think you meant 'became' and not 'because'.
I love a good Draco story, and this was a good one ... Good job!
Author's Response: *snickers* I cannot believe that after ALL this time, I never caught that error... go figure. I am glad you enjoyed the story and this one happens to be my favorite (completed fanfic) that I have written so far. Thank you for taking the time to read and review. I appreciated your feedback! ~Nicole
Author's Response: EDIT: I just noticed that Haylee noted the same error. I am such a dork... and a blind one at that.
Author's Response: EDIT 2: Oh dear me... it was pointed out three times. (and they were all reviews I responded to!!!) I give up.
Your beautiful ending made me cry. Heck, I'm still crying. It was so beautiful and happy. But on another note: How could you pair Draco up with Ginny? What happened to Dramione Addicts? *giggles* I like both ships.
Anyway, this story was very descriptive. At first I thought, it’s Harry but halfway through I started thinking: no, it’s not Slyth like to be Harry. Yes, it will be Draco. And sure enough my hopes came true. Amazing job dear, it is truly a wonderful story.
This was my favorite part:
Walking carefully to her, Draco knelt in front of his daughter with tears in his eyes. “Oh how I missed you, Peanut.”
...Michaela’s hands stopped moving and her eyes grew huge. “Daddy?” she asked, “My Daddy?” She took two steps and wrapped her arms tightly around his neck.
It was so graphic and emotional, that was when I started to cry. You had a very well structured plot and followed through with it throughout the fic.
I have one nitpick though, in this sentence “After coming out of hiding and proclaiming his loyalty not to Voldemort but the Order, Draco because an invaluable asset.” I think you meant ‘became’ not ‘because’ I had to read that over a couple of times before I understood it.
Overall this was a truly amazing fic.
Author's Response: *snickers* I made another one cry, WOOT! Sorry, I'm just very proud of this story. I'll PM you the story behind how it came about. Oh and thank you for pointing out the error that I have NEVER seen until now. I feel like such a ninny. (This explains why I have yet to pass the PI test.) I wanted to point out that your favorite part was also the part that made me cry when I wrote it! I am so glad you enjoyed the fic. ~Nicole
Well, first of all, I think it's lovely of you to give a thank-you to Leah for being modly and such. Also, it's always interesting to know where the story originated! I seldom appreciate Author's Notes, and this one is wonderful.
I like the way it begins by slowly introducing the characters of the little girls. Also, the story continues to say why Ginny feels the way she does, and you did a lovely job, emotion-wise, with explaining it. You introduced her as Ginevra Weasley, though, and wouldn't she be Ginevra Malfoy at this point?
Oh, the memory is precious. The interactions between Draco and GInny and their children are precious, and how Draco handles the girls is wonderful. I didn't picture him before as such a caring father. It doesn't really seem characteristic for him to say he would be crying everywhere. Is he trying to be different from his own father? Maybe you could add something about that.
The return is remarkable, too! The emotion Ginny is feeling is realistic and sweet. The ensuing explanation is hard, must be hard, for Ginny to take.
After coming out of hiding and proclaiming his loyalty not to Voldemort but the Order, Draco because an invaluable asset. The quick explanations in this paragraph are fast, but effective. I like it. Also, I think you meant 'became' here.
Your ending is wonderfully fluffy after the distressing year Draco has had! I loved the overall structure of the story and the way you presented your plot. Thank you for sharing this!
Author's Response: *wonders how to change mistake in story* ack! Hehe, I think the issue of Ginny being introduced as Weasley has come up more than once. I think the easiest way for me to explain why I did it would be to say I wanted her husband to be a surprise. I wrote the "weasley" part before remembering that I had to specify the pairing as DRACO/Ginny... I was hoping to either use Ginny/other character but lovely Leah pointed out that I wasn't allowed. *headdesk* So yeah, that is why she is called by the name Weasley in the beginning. (now to find the "edit story" feature around here...) Oh, and as far as Draco crying, I am assuming you are referring to when he returned from his trip. I was trying to show how much he missed his girls. I know from experience that a hug as passionate as the one he received can bring one to tears. He's a changed man and lives for his family now. Thank you very much for the warm review, by the way. ~Nicole (NikkiSue)
This story was such a terrific story. It really doen't even need a sequel, all of the oter sotries I have read just left me on a cliffhanger I'm glad this one didn't. I used to be a big harry and ginny supporter but reading the draco and ginny fan fics opened my eyes a bit. I am now supporting Draco and Ginny
Author's Response: Rock on,... we converted another one! muHAHAHAHA. *clears throat* I'm glad you enjoyed my story. I must say I am quite proud of this one. Thanks for taking the time to review! ~Nicole (NikkiSue)
This was such a cute story. Or rather sweet. I never thought Draco could make a good dad! I'm glad he didn't take after Lucius. Although, I was just wondering why in the beginning of the story you call her "Ginevra Weasley" when she's married?
Author's Response: Oopsy, I thought I responded to everyone. I feel terrible for not responding here! In answer to your question, I used her maiden name simply because I wanted to keep the pair a secret in any way that I could. In the end, I had to mark the "D/G" box and all thoughts of surprise went out the window, though I never did correct the name thing. Apparently a lot of people notice it and then question me about it so I may someday correct it. For now, I don't think it is hurting anything.rnrnThank you very much for reviewing and I am sorry this took so ungodly long for me to respond to. rnrn ~Nicole/NikkiSue
Aw, very sweet! I decided to read this to get a feeling for your banner, and I wasn't disappointed. Lovely, really. I'm not usually a Ginny/Draco fan, but this one was touching. Well-written, and I loved both the beginning and end. :-)
Author's Response: *luffs my prettiful banner*
Awwwwww- that is one of the cutest draco-ginny stories i've ever read! keep writing- you're a very promising author!
Author's Response: Thank you! I had never written D/G before so I thought I would give it a shot. I may do more at another time as it was an exjoyable experience. I think the next one will be more recent and show her *spark* that I love so much. - Nicole
Hey Nikki! Great job as always, I loved it! And I am pretty sure I did edit it or something because I have read it before... hmmm.... Anyway, great job as always, 10/10
Author's Response: Hmmm... odd. I *swear* that it was Masked One but if I am wrong, I apoligize to both of you and feel quite ashamed. I only remember sending you one fic but it could just be old age creeping in... *hides in corner* Thanks for reviewing, regardless! - Nicole
Awww!! It was so cute!! I love it. It was so sweet. I love the side of Draco you showed, the father and loving side. Aww! I love this fic. It makes me feel like hugging someone I love. :D Really great work!! I just want to keep aww-ing for some reason. :)
Author's Response: *gasp!* first review! Thank you for the kind words. This story gives me warm fuzzies too. I'm glad it had that effect on you too - thanks.
