Harry Potter and the Year of the Dragon~~ Chapter 14 is up!! I will try my hardest to get the next chapter up before the end of the week. As per reviewer request, expect a little love!
Hogwarts: The Next Generation~~ Chapter 10 is in queue. This plot bunny is the one that's currently hopping the highest.
Pride and Pumpkin Juice~~ Chapter 3 is up.
Revenge is a Dish Best Served to a Weasley...This story is complete and is the sequel to Truth Be Told. This story is up!
Just a quick note on Year of the Dragon: I am looking at wrapping this story up in a few more chapters (five or so). Then I will be doing a third part that will fit in nicely between Year of the Dragon and Hogwarts: The Next Generation, making this a four part series. I hope you'll all stick with me!
Teeheehee! This whole love knot thing just gets funnier with every chapter! How much longer will it be before they stop arguing so much and noticing good things about each other? There's just too much suspense!! Update soon!
Author's Response: Haha... Glad that you like it! The truth is, they'll never totally stop arguing. BUT, the arguments will get sweeter and cuter... Heehee... So do look out for it!
SUCH a great chapter, and well worth the wait (although I do hope you submit the next one sooner!) :) The whole thing was brilliant! Quidditch practice and the new sleeping arrangements....all brilliant!! You're finally starting to show some feelings of Hermione and Draco noticing each other as well, and it's working out splendidly!!! I SO wish I could give you more than a ten!!
Author's Response: *grinz* Thanks a million CraftySlytherin! And yes, for the readers and reviewers, I will submit the next one sooner. =D That's the least I can do. And I'm so happy that you noticed that bit about Hermione and Draco!! Awww, a 10's really good enough for me because it really made my day! Thank you!
OMG!!! SO GREAT!!! This is one of the best chapters so far! I was happy to see Jinx back, and I liked having Draco try it on!!! SOMEONE'S FEELING NAUGHTY!!!!!! :) As far as how fast your doing the romance, no hurries!! I like the pace you're taking it. It makes it seem more natural and believable. Plus, it's so suspenseful!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I thought it was about time Jinx made a re-appearance. She's been put aside too long! I think the pace of romance in this story will continue like this. It's easier for me to write this way, you see. =D I'm glad that you like the pace right now because that will mean that I don't need to rush anything!
Wow.....this is a new idea!! Lucious trying to get Hermione and Draco together instead of trying to keep them apart. It's definately a new spin on things, but that's what has me wanting to read more! A very good beginning!!
Author's Response: Haha...Strange right? Who would have thought that Lucius Malfoy, of all people, would want Draco and Hermione to get together? And playing matchmaker is definitely not something he's accustomed to doing. But I'm glad that this idea is appealing to you!
I'm enjoying your story immensely!! How like Lucious to have an alterior motive for trying to get Hermione and Draco today. Knew he had to still be evil!!
Author's Response: =D I'm glad that you are! And in Lucius' case, once evil, always evil! Isn't it just so Lucius to have an ulterior motive?? Heehee...
Oh no, is Draco now going to tease Hermione about her nightie?? It would be typical of him! I liked your dorm room description, but my fave has got to be the talking portraits of Salazar Slytherin and Godric Gryffindor, very original!
Author's Response: As I think you may have already found out, yes, Draco does tease poor Hermione about her nightie. I thought adding the talking portraits of Salazar Slytherin and Godric Gryffindor would bring a little bit more comedy into the story. Hope it's working!
Okay, the best part of this chapter was definitely Draco's conjured pink sheep! Poor Hermione. I am glad Draco threw out the love potion. He and Hermione need to have time to develop a relationship without chemical help.
Author's Response: Haha...Good to hear that you liked the sheep! And yes, I share the same view. Hermione and Draco do need to have time to develop a relationship without chemical help.
I'm so excited!! You have a new chapter up AND you used my idea!!!! YAY!!!! Your story is nothing short of brilliant!! Jinx has got to be the best mood ring in the world! And it sounds like Lucius knows all about the little rumor going around ;) I'm glad you're such a fast updater, cause I LOVE this story. Now, let's see if I can come up with another idea. Had you thought about having a ball? I know some people think balls in fanfics are overdone, but I love them! Draco and Hermione being bound by the Love-Knot would certainly make for an interesting ball! It would be funny to try and see them dance with other people, and still be stuck together!!! Or even a trip to Hogsmeade could be interesting for the two! And Lucius could 'conveniently' show up to check on their progress first hand. Well, have fun reading HBP (I know I will!!!!) and I look forward to more updates after the 18th.
Author's Response: Hahaha...Of course I used your idea! It was a great idea, so why shouldn't I? =D Thank you very much, CraftySlytherin! I wish I could own a mood ring like Jinx too! Lucius definitely has an inkling to what's going on, but you'll have to read the next chapter to see his reaction! Oh, and about the ball idea, let me tell you a little secret. The idea of a ball has already been in my head for quite a while, so I decided to use it towards the end of the story. So consider that idea used! Although it may be a little different from what's expected... And I like the Hogsmeade idea! That's excellent. I'm already thinking of how and when I'll be using that one..Thank you so much for the review and ideas, CraftySlyhterin!
So far your depictions of all of the characters seem to be right on. I'm liking your story better with each chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! It's nice to know that you're enjoying the chapters! I decided to try to keep the characters as IN-CHARACTER as I can. Hopefully it'll continue as such!
OMG.......Drunk Draco is friggin HILARIOUS!!! Loved the little song Ron sang for him at the breakfast table. Another *10!!!
Author's Response: Thanks!! I decided to make drunk Draco a complete opposite from sober Draco and I'm glad that it worked out well!
HAHAHA!! Now they're stuck to each other!! Good idea! The love knot was definately clever and I can't wait to see how it plays out!
Author's Response: Yup, stuck to each other with no idea how to get rid of the source that made them stick to each other! Thank you!
Dumbledore seems quite amused by the situation. So amused, that I wonder if he would have even taken it off if he could. Another super chapter in a super story by a super author!!
Author's Response: Awww....*blush* Thanks for that! He does seem amused, doesn't he? I just imagined that that's how Dumbledore would react. Haha...
You are doing SO good with the arguments between Draco and Hermione. Just building up that tension!! *10
Author's Response: Thank you! I was initially a bit worried whether or not the arguments between those two will seem realistic enough or not. But I guess I don't really need to worry anymore, right? Thanks again!
Your story is just plain..........terrific!!! You have Draco and Hermione's arguments down pat!! Makes me want to read more, so I think I will!
Author's Response: Hehe...Thank you very much! Your compliments are thoroughly appreciated. And it great that the arguments make you want to read more!
I meant to say so in an earlier review, but I really like Jinx the mood ring. It would be funny for Hermione to slip it on Draco's finger while he's sleeping!!! Your story is just so good, and you keep throwing in bits of humor throughout each chapter. Excellent!
Author's Response: LOL...That's a GREAT idea!! I think I may just use it in one of my chapters. Thanks for that idea! Oh, and I know that Jinx will seem to be missing in the next few chapters, but don't worry, it will be back. I'm just waiting for the RIGHT time! Heehee....*evil grin* Thanks again!
Ut oh.........the Slytherins think Hermione set up the whole love knot fiasco! If I haven't already said it, your story is just full of creativity!
Author's Response: Yeah, trust the Slytherins to think in such a twisted way! Thank you!
No! Don't delete it! The whole bathroom scene with Michael Corner walking in was a riot! I have really enjoyed what chapters you have here and can't wait to see what you have in store when you update!!!!
Author's Response: Yes ma'am, I won't delete it! Don't worry! It makes me very happy to see that you and the other reviewers enjoyed this chapter, so it's not going anywhere! I have updated, but you've just got to wait for the naxt chapter to be validated. Let me know how you think of the next one too, OK? Thanks for all your wonderful reviews!
I have been reading a lot of these fan fics, and I had never really thought of Ginny and Draco before, but they are fast becoming a favorite because of stories like yours!!
I'm the first to review!!! YAYYY!!! Loved this chapter! It's very original to say the least. Ginny's a living, breathing music box! I'm very interested to see how that will all play out in the chapters to come, so update again soon!
I thought I'd check out your fic since you checked out one of mine. I think you have a very interesting beginning. It's definitely a different spin to already have Harry and Ginny together right from the get go. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
