Summary: [Begun Pre DH] Draco, in order to avoid the wrath of the Dark Lord, negotiates his return to Hogwarts, the only place in the world he can be safe. Ginny, meanwhile, tries her hardest to forget everything about...(Boy-Who-Lived who?)...and focuses on her N.E.W.T. classes. Unfortunately, one moment of carelessness in Potions gives her a one-way ticket to weekly tutoring sessions with--yes--Draco Malfoy. This fic takes Draco/Ginny and attempts to make it go along with canon. Reviews are appreciated.
umm . . .erumpent horns usually explode on touch, it was in DH. u could flesh out slughorn's character by making him do some actions as well as just instructions [mopping his brow, clapping hands together etc etc] but nice. I like it :)
Author's Response: This chapter was written before DH came out, actually, so I was unaware at the time. A few months before, I think. The writing of this fan fiction has been spread out over the course of 3-4 years, and it's still going little by little. Thanks for the Slughorn advice.
i like the Red Problem nickname - it fits
COLIN??? poor romilda vane.
i didnt think of Voldy using M to get to G - nice. keep going
Summary: After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts to complete her seventh year of studies as Head Girl, only to find Draco Malfoy has been appointed Head Boy. Her life is further complicated by the fact that Headmistress McGonagall is strongly encouraging Malfoy and her to attend one of the three wizarding universities in Europe after they graduate from Hogwarts. The story starts HG/RW, but the focus is on the development of HG/DM.
reading your first chap made me smile. i thought it was quite good. i just have one Q: why is draco whispering? i thought they'd sort of ignore each other, but i liked it anyways.
wah! malfoy is mellowing ... .
Author's Response: Yes, sorry, this is a story where over the course of about 30 chapters, Malfoy mellows. I tried to keep him with a sarcastic sense of humor, though... Sorry! Jenny
many Qs now -
why did u make M call H love?? Sounds totally weird, coming from him
Isnt Luna supposed to be dreamy and vague? I thought u tweaked her personality a bit.
Didnt know that R/H relationship was that obvious ..
but hey, keep up the good work
Author's Response: He called her "love" in a sarcastic, biting way, not an affectionate way. I could change that though, if there's another British term that would work better there. I tried to keep Luna in character, but you are right, she is not vague here (I can fix dreamy with some descriptions of her voice, I think). She's not in the story very much, so hopefully that won't bother you too much. I assumed that Hermione and Ron were together as a couple all summer after the war and that news had spread. Maybe I should state that more explicitly. Thanks for the feedback! Jenny
