OH GOD I LOVE IT!!!!!!! ITS AMAZING!! but i just have one question: whose baby is it?
Author's Response: read on, haliey, thank you!
This story was beautifully written, and I couldn't stop reading it once I'd started. Kudos for this wonderful story. It was purely magical.
Author's Response: thank you, marilyn! so glad you enjoyed it.
Wow! This fic is absolutely awesome! I was directed here from the nomination site of Dramione Awards, and I couldn't stop reading after the first paragraph! Great job!
Author's Response: thank you, lovely lady! in Dramione awards, really?! oh my, gotta check that out! i have no idea this was nominated! thanks again! i'm thrilled!
AWWW! The button worked, but now the story's over! But it was really, really great. Your plot wasn't dead obvious from sentence one, and your characters were nicely developed. I also enjoyed how you created your own magical world/place/ whatchamacallit. My hat is off to you.
Author's Response: awww, *blushes and flutters eyelashes* thanks, laura. im relieved and glad you were satisfied. *sigh* whew! hehe!
Aie! Great story, but I actively dislaike cliff hangers. And That "you're not the smartest witch..." line tip her off to who he was? But I feel very sorry for Draco. I like his character development too. Update really fast.
Edit. Okay, so you read my mind. I'll see if the "next" button works.
Author's Response: the penultimate, you know, so i indulged myself, hehe. thanks so much for being constantly there, ma cherie!
Very sweet and tender! Bringing a smile to my face and a sigh to my heart (flutter - flutter). Keep up the good writing. I will look for your next one.
Author's Response: thank you, valory! thank you! ^_^
Wonderful, as always. I was beginning to wonder if he'd ever get around to kissing her..
I'm almost sad that it's over...But, at least they get a happy ending.
Author's Response: thank you, melissa. im relieved! i was really wondering what you'd say. whew! anyway, im also sad that its over, but i have no inclination or skill for long-winded epics, i'll run out of scenes and just plain ramble, so i decided to...*sigh* thanks again! *waiting now for other beloved constant reviewers* ^_^
OMG! this chapter was soooooo amazing!
You should really think of becoming an author! seriously! if u do i swear im gonna be your greatest fan! lol! bot this chapter was good! im soooo curious of whats gonna happen next!
Author's Response: thank you, mahira! wow! you're sooooo kind to say that! ^_^
Another great chapter! I love how you show his feeling growing for her, and I am curious about the back story with Draco avenging Ron's murder. Harry and Ginny were humorous too.
Author's Response: another great thanks, jen! the back story? i'll give it to you. ^_^
Been reading this for a while, with great interest; I apologise for not reviewing sooner! I have to tell you that this is one of the most original and unique narratives on the site. With a whole universe at their disposal, it's remarkable how almost all the authors on here choose to "go in the same direction". Equally, however, it's fantastic to see that at least one author is willing to break a bit of new ground! Your description of the physical and spiritual aspects of Ireland are as deep as they are broad. I'm English, myself, but I've spent a "lot" of time in some of the more out-of-the-way parts of Ireland and you are gradually succeeding in capturing the soul of the place. This fic is exploring some new territory and I, for one, want to explore a little further to see where you are going to take us ...
Author's Response: thank you so much, morgan. your review made me so happy...and scared at the same time! i hope i deliver to the end. thank you so much! *speechless*
Hermione with no Crookshanks is just wrong...Not to mention sad and...and...Well, I honestly don't know what else, but still...awww...Poor girl...
I'm still tempted to smack Draco in the head with a stick...How much longer can he pretend that he doesn't care? How much longer is he going to keep up this Andrei charade? I'm honestly surprised Hermione hasn't dissolved his little smokescreen yet...
Author's Response: *laughing* poor draco! ^_^ patience, my dear melissa! thanks a lot for this.
i enjoyed the drama while i was writing this chapter. a tribute to my fave fictional cat.
AWWW! I love this story. I really enjoy how they don't just BAM reslove their differences by magic and fall in love. Very enjoyable. Update soon!
Author's Response: thank you, laura. patience, my girl. and yep, i will update soon. ^_^
I think it's a lovely story.
Author's Response: thank you, jeanne.
Oh, when is he going to tell her that he is Malfoy?!
Author's Response: you'll need to read to find out, jessie! thanks!
im reading your own story as well, ya know. can't wait for it to unfold. harry and luna is a rather unique pairing im only starting to digest.
I am falling in love wth this story!
Author's Response: awww, jen. ^_^
I like it so far, it's really interesting. I can't wait to find out why Malfoy is under a different name and why he's there. I hope to find out soon. Nicely done.
Author's Response: stephanie darling, thank you! the answer to why malfoy is under a different name and why he's in Ireland is in Chapter One. happy reading!
Great story. And one of the most imaginative ones that I've read in a very long time (I don't mind predictability, but this is very refreshing). I love how Draco and Hermione don't start back where they left off at the beginning. I'm not really one to read anything that has much to do with Hermione and Ron getting together, but this is exceptional. Keep writing!
Author's Response: thank you, laura! thank you! (speechless)
Now, I don't generally review stories, but I think that yours deserves it, firstly because it's good enough to be reviewed in a constructive way, and secondly because I think you could use the encouragement, since you're new in the field :D Wow, that was a long preamble for a simple review...
To the point. The four chapters have lived up to my expectations after the first. I'm glad to see that you have stuck by the style, simplicity and language. It is still Nora-Roberts-esque, but in a very good way, because she has a good, smooth narrative [especially when Irishmen are concerned]. I appreciate your description of Hermione's grief for Ron, which rings very true. Then again the bafflement that both she and Draco seem to be feeling for each other is a good starting point for developing something deeper...
It's curious for me to see how you will resolve the 'Waterbut' dilemma for the readers and also how the Potters will contribute to the story. One of the nicer components of your writing is the description of sceneries and weathers - it's very enlivening and refreshing in a way. You also have a great attention for detail :D
Now I sit back and wait for the next chapter :)
Author's Response: daydreamer, i wish i could call you something else, my friend! you made me palpitate for about ten seconds, im not exaggerating! what more could a writer want? thank you so much! for welcoming and encouraging me with your review. ^_^
you have attention to detail too, huh? im glad someone appreciates my penchant for "literary landscaping"! i love describing them because i love nature. if you see You-And-Me Nuggets, i had some 'landscaping' there too. But in Just Perfect, i think i eschewed all background description for the sake of the dialogues and the story (blabbing...).
im flattered and flabbergasted that you compared my writing to that of goddess Nora Roberts! oh my!
As for Waterbut and the Potters, i hope i deliver again to your expectations and surprise you guys at the same time. tell me what you think when those chapters comes out, my friend! i'll be looking forward to it. ^_^ thanks again!
Ohhh! I like this story. Very creative, but is the baby his? I need to keep reading!
Author's Response: thank you, phoenix girl! the baby? oh no, andrei has no baby.... yet.
I think it's beautiful.
Author's Response: thank you, jeanne.
