Hey everyone, my name is Nora!
Please read my fics and review!
Most importantly, please read and review my newest story, "Rose's Ramblings". Thanks!

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance-Non Canon 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 mods changed the rules (they got tired of the same fics being nominated ^_~) so no more QQ hopes, but that's okay. No proof is needed that Draco/Ginny = love.
* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is. *

Funny, I was listening to Cigarettes and Alcohol when I saw this :)
Wow, the beginning was just so perfect! With Draco acting all protective and stuff to Ginny, and of course I loved how perfect Draco and Ginny just generally are together! And the scene with Molly and Ginny- a mother/daughter moment to treasure.
Blaise and Terry were adorable too, but Lorelei and Hook?? What's going on? I though that Hook was with Trelawney and Lorelei with Snape! Hmmm...
Luna and Wesely were, of course, adoable too! And Wesleys humor only adds to the perfection! THe dragon was awesome, but it sucks that Wesley and Luna didn't get the info they needed.
But the last part with Dracoa and Ginny... oh, sigh. So perfect! I had to reread it at least a million times!
Author's Response: Hook is just trying to intimidate Lorelei into telling him what he wants to know. He isn\'t making a move on her. :D
If Luna and Wesley didn\'t get information, at least they got tea, and loads of book reccomendations
*sigh* I just love Draco and Ginny together! Especially now that they can be out in the open for everyone to see! I love how Draco carries Ginny's books... it's such a simple gesture, but it means so much. :D
Colin seriously needs to back off of Blaise! She's Terry's and he's Mindy's! I hope he doesn't mess this up for all four of them!
Trelawney and Hook together were quite funny :) But now I'm all confuzzled... why did Hook kiss Lorelei when he is clearly still interested in Trelawney? Hmm.
Harry and Draco... it's nice to see them finally get along... some what! I'm already having dreams about happy futures... ah...
Draco and Ginny in Hogsmeade! FINALLY!!! This is the way it should have happened way back in chapter 10-11 ish. I've been looking forward to this for ages! And now it's pretty darn perfect!
Thanks so much for this. :) Your story is the best thing that's happened to me all school year. :)
Author's Response: Ahoy, matey! Hook didn\'t kiss Lorelei. He may have wrapped his hook around her hair, but he was intimidating, not seducing...although Sybil seems to find it sexy! :D Harry and Draco will be civil at best, never mates. I want Harry to be happy, just with someone besides Ginny! ;)
Aw, thank you for saying that. I hope that doesn\'t mean you\'ve had a grueling school year buried under loads of assignments and exams!
GRRRRRRR LUCIUS!!!! I'M GOING TO COME TO YOUR CELL IN AZKABAN AND KICK YOUR A** IF YOU EVEN DARE TOUCH DRACO AND GINNY'S PERFECTIONESSISMESS! (nevermind that that probably isn't a word!)
The party scenes were awesome! Draco must have loved Ginny in leather, although I totally understand Ron (for once!) when he said that Draco and Ginny should take it outside- there are some things a brother REALLY doesn't need to see! ;)
THe Gryffindor party sounds nice, kind of like the party I would go to. The SLytherin party though... I think I ought to take dance lessons first! XD
I hope that Crabbe and Goyle get girlfirends. They're good guys, after all :)
I felt majorely sorry for Blaise, not having any fun at the party :( But at least she got her Terry later on.
And Draco's drunk and miserable because of his STUPID FATHER WHO DOESN'T UNDERSTAND TRUE LOVE
Author's Response: Ron was funny in the books, trying to set Harry up with Ginny, and then when they were together, being uncomfortable with it. :D No brother (or sister for that matter!) wants to see PDA. Ick.
C&G are good guys...for Slytherins! They\'re devoted to Draco, so they have good taste in friends! ^_^
Oops, sorry, I wasn't finished there!
But I just wanted to say that I'm happy that Ginny is there to comfort Draco! I hope that we'll be able to see what happens between the two... I need my D/G sweetness! Haha
And I'm so happy for Luna! She's finally found love! No more chasing after a boy who doesn't want her :D
I love this story! It rocks my socks!
Author's Response: I\'m happy you\'re happy, our couples are happy, and now the story has to rev up to the happy ending...but not just yet...
OH NO!!! What will happen to Ginny and Draco??? They just HAVE to be okay, otherwise I'll do something very very drastic!
Goyle was so cute in this chapter! I never thought that I would say those words but... with this story you never know!
Prof. Hands is literally creeping me out. He should be banned from the school or something! Poor Blaise!
Luna and Wesley are SO CUTE!!
And I loved the scene with Draco and Ginny in Draco's bedroom. *sigh* I live off this stuff, seriously!
The Girls Day Out sounds like a SUPER amount of fun! I hope that we get to hear all about it!
And let's just hope that Lucius doesn't do anything EVIL! Gee, I thought that Ginny's parents reacted badly.... at least they didn't threaten to kill Draco or anything!
Thanks for posting this story!!
Author's Response: Goyle is cute and Hands is a perv. Every school seems to have one. Doesn\'t matter than he doesn\'t do anything but give girls the eye, he\'s creepy!
Good thing we have our couples to make you forget about him!
LOL at \'they didn\'t threaten to kill Draco\'....I\'m sure he was duly appreciative! :D
OMG. This chapter is so unusually beautiful! It's... out of this world! The whole scene with "You were shy" had me cracking up, but the scene in the bedroom with Draco and Ginny made me cry! That doesn't happen very often! You rock!
Author's Response: Sometimes, I come across Ginny-loves-Draco-for-the-man-he-could-be stories and it makes me sad, because he should be loved for the man he is, good and bad, light and dark. Thank you for having a sensitive soul and being touched by them. You\'re the one who rocks!
I am literally alternating between crying and laughing after this... the sweetest, most romantic chapter EVER!!!! Now I'll never be able to read another romance story because I'll always be "But it's not as good as A Tale of Two Matchmakers!"
Wow. What can I say? Brilliance all around! Blaise and Terry were cute, and I'm seriously on the edge of my seat wondering about Hook! What is he up to?
AND DRACO/GINNY WAS SO SO PERFECT!!!!!
I was about to go to another fanfic site, since I reckoned that you couldn't possibly have updated already, but I checked and... OMG! I'm psychic!
ANyway, I LOVED LOVED LOVED this chapter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE you and all the characters, for making this story póssible!!!!!
Author's Response: You have the Beatles stuck in my head now...Love, Love, Love...love is all you need (love is all you need!)
Thank you so much for having a psychic flash and reading the chapter. You say the nicest things and make me smile from ear to ear!
Hook is up to tormenting Trelawney in the next chapter...naughty man! ;)
BLAISE AND TERRY ARE MARRIED!!!!!! OMG!!!! How... sweet and utterly cute! And it all started in potions class... ah, sniffle, sniffles.
Draco and Ginny are the most PERFECT couple ever! And oh, how I just want Marisol to go away!
Luna and Wesley are just wonderfully adorable! Oh, I was laughing at the part with the old woman! haha!
Narcissa and Draco was just so sweet! It was so touching... shows that they do care.... if oddly.
I love this story so much, and I am seriously CRYING because there's only one chapter left and then it will all be over!
Author's Response: Thank you for loving the story! There are a couple of nice, long one shots to follow. The Romania one is from Draco\'s pov. That was a lot of fun to write.
You haven\'t seen the last of Marisol, but there will be fluffy moments entwined with the action/adventure ones.
I\'m glad you liked Narcissa and Draco\'s talk. This is the harshest characterisation I\'ve written of her, but even in this story she loves her son, even if she\'s self-involved.
OMG. Wow... I... I'm speechless, as usual! Haha!
Wow, Draco and Ginny... oh, the sweetness and the utter perfection! I just love it! Especially the end. Now THAT was awesome. I wonder what the Weasleys say to that! :D
The flashback that Ginny had to when they were on the train was just... so sweet! Draco needs GInny, although I doubt that he would admit it to that many people.
OMG: The raven was Marisol??? Why didn't I think of that! Now it all links together somehow... whoa. She'd better not harm Ginny!
BLAISE AND TERRY CAN BE TOGETHER AGAIN!!!!! I'm so happy! But, wait- is Blaise going to lose her virginity to Terry? I love that couple so much!
Luna and Wesley were sweet as always, and I'm seriously beginning to hate Blaise's father! *GRRRR*
Well, thanks for another absolute brilliiant chapter! It was awesome and OH NO! Only TWO chapters left!
Author's Response: Love the review, the face, the treasuring...*treasures review like gold*
Thank you for telling me the parts you like...and you\'ll see next chapter about Blaise and Terry. As for Marisol, well, chapter 50 is a VERY eventful chapter!
*sigh* brilliant chapter as usual! So romantic with Draco and Ginny! I can't wait untill everyone finds out about them!
Author's Response: No one will find out until after Easter Holiday, but they\'ll have a fabulous time and make it worth the wait! :)
So amazing! You never run out of new ideas, do you? I loved Draco's present for Ginny, it was just the sweetest thing ever! And I just know that everything will work out for Blaise and Terry. They love each other, after all!
Author's Response: I\'m knocking on wood, throwing salt over my shoulder about new ideas....and giggling madly over the thought of the little surprise in the next chapter. I hope you like it...or should I say \'him\'....
OMG! No more Luna and Wesley! I'm sobbing while writing this, I'm totally serious! How will I live without this couple? After all, they can only be found in YOUR BRILIANT fic!
Anyway, I loved this chapter, it was superbly fun witht eh scooby gang and all, and the ending was so sweet!
*sniffles some more*
I can't believe that this story is really coming to an end! This is so sad!
Author's Response: I feel bad for feeling happy you\'re sad...I\'m gonna need therapy...shopping therapy...:D Luna and Wesley will be back in the reunion story, and this time Wesley gets a pov too!
AHH!! You can't leave off here, it's... it's... wrong!!! You PROMISED not to have any cliffies at the end of the last chapter, and because this si TECHNICALLY the last chapter, then... then... oh, whatever, the chapter was too brilliant for me to be truly angry :)
Wow, I can hardly´believe how cute Blaise and Terry were in this chapter! And now I'm crying all over again, because I'm never going to see Blaise and Terry in another story! WAIL!
I loved Blaise reuniting with her father, by the way! It was a great way to end the story!
Oh, and before I forget, I loved Trelawney and Hook in the last chapter! I forgot to mention that in my other review!
I LOVE THiS STORY!!!!!! :D
Author's Response: I\'m going to have to buy out a story at this rate! Thank you so much for being touched by the story and I hope the thought of seeing eveyone again...Terry gets a pov too...cheers you up!
I'm back! Finally! And I'm soo happy to see TWO chapters up!!
Hook seems like a very interesting and mysterious man... I wonder if something might happen between him and Lorelei? And was Smalley MURDERED??? AH!! Maybe Lorelei murdered him! Oh, it's just too much to bear!
Mindy and Colin really are an adorable couple! They're so perfect, but they don't seem to realize it.
Colin was really sweet with helping Blaise serenade Terry... so romantic! (besides the fact that Colin still might like Blaise!!)
Draco was so sweet in this chapter! I can tell that he's really trying to be nice for Ginny's sake, even though it didn't work out in the end. I'm so sick of the trio! I know that they don't mean to be so EVIL, but they really ought to give Draco a chance, like he is doing to them.
I hope that everything works out for Draco and Ginny... they're perfect in every possible way!!
I'm off to the next chapter! Toodles!
Author's Response: Yay, you\'re back! *looks around for confetti, finds none, throws heart shaped lollipop leftover from Valentine\'s Day*
The trio is genuinely worried for Ginny. If you think your sister or friend is under the evil sway of a Slytherin, you\'d do anything you had to in order to save her...and yeah, that\'s a hint about ch 40! :D
OH NO!!!!!!!!!! Draco must be helped! What will happen to him! How can you leave us with a cliffhanger!
So. The Trio found out! I can't believe that Ginny told them! But, of course, she had no other choice.... but still. Whoa.
And of course the Trio overreacted and made her do all those tests... and yet they still attack Draco! Why can't they understand that Draco and Ginny love each other and are just meant to be?
But of course, now that the secret is out, I totally understand why Draco is relieved and oddly happy. After all, now they don't have to sneak around any more.
Please, oh please, update soon! I must find out what happens!
Author's Response: It will take quite a while before Ron thinks Draco and Ginny are meant to be...he may never truly accept it. Ever see the end of Napoleon Dynamite where Kip and Lafawnduh get married and her brother is shaking his head in a \'I can\'t believe I\'m gonna be related to this guy\' way? That\'ll be Ron. LOL
Okay, I'll admit it: when I saw that you had posted the next chapter I literally danced around the room until I was calm enough to actually read it.
Wow, Captain- sorry, Professor Hook! That's so intruiging!! I can't wait to hear more about this guy. I'm sure he'll be awesome.
I feel so so sorry for Blaise and Terry. I hate Terry's family! They're trying to dictate their son's life :O But one day Terry will marry Blaise and live happily ever after, I'm sure of it :P
The scene with Ginny and Draco and the mirror- So cute! Draco must be proud that his Gryff girlfriend hexed her roomates. I was completely with Ginny on hexing them though! I would be mad too if someone was kissing a picture of my boyfriend right in front of my face! Even if it was unintentional. THe Weasely temper unleashed!
The musketeer scene was just what was needed to make me smile again after the horror of Terry's family! Draco slithering around, catching fiery redhead musketeers...
Luna and Wesley were cute, as always! I love how strong their relationship is becoming, it's great!
But, oh, how annoying the trio are! I can't believe how they just judge Slytherins like that! No wonder Ginny's mad!
I can't wait until Ginny and Draco get discovered, I want to see everyone's reactions!
I'm going away for a whole week with no computer :O But the only thing that is keeping me from losing my sanity is knowing that there might be a new chapter up when I get back *hinthint*
ANyway, briliiant as always! I can't wait for more!
(sorry for the long rant, by the way...)
Author's Response: Yay for dancing around the room and smiling over hexes, mirrors, and musketeer fun. If you\'re gone for a week, there might be two chapters up and the second will reveal something...muahahaha...ha...:D
I swear, once I realized that that was the end of the chapter I nearly fell off my chair, yelling "WHAT?" Basically that means that I cannot believe that you ended it there! I think I'll have to read it again!
The first scene with Ron and Harry and Draco had me pitying Draco. He really wants to be good, but it's just not easy for him. Good thing that Harry isn't overreacting the same way though. Although, I suppose that Ron is just trying to protect his little sister.
Luna and Wesley as Secret Agents! Wow, Hook seems like a really really interesting guy! I hope that we'll see more of him soon!
Draco taking care of Ginny like that was just so cute! It just shows how utterly perfect they are! ANd going to Hogsmeade together? FINALLY!! I'm so happy for them... but then again not, obviously, because of GInny's parents!
And, whoa. At least her dad is acting reasonably. Her mum, however, should be able to see from the card how in love Draco and Ginny are! And how perfect they are together! I just feel so sorry for GInny.
I don't know if it was supposed to be funny, but the line "Your parents have sent for you, child.” Had me cracking up, before worrying for Ginny. I guess I just imagined some huge figure with a low voice booming, "YOUR PARENTS HAVE SENT FOR YOU, CHILD!"
Ahem. Sorry. Anyway, brlliant as usual :) This story rocks my world!
Author's Response: A voice that sounds like James Earl Jones, perhaps? :D It might have been more appropriate for Minerva to have sounded like Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost. \"Ginny, you in danger, girl!\" LOL.
Draco is trying, and he\'ll be given grudging credit...eventually. ;) Got to earn it the hard way, poor luv!
This is wonderful- I added it to my faves! Narcissa's point of view is brilliant, as is Ginny, who is very IC. A wonderful story. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Really? I'm very pleased you found that Ginny is IC, because I was scared she was way too OOC. Well, be sure to let me know in my later chapters if she's still IC. x.o Thanks for reviewing!
This is extremly touching. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I love hearing that I made an impact on people!
oooh... another wonderful chapter! I loved this one, so much! I sympathize with all your characters, even Ivy. The line: "Do squirrels lay eggs?" will seriously stay with me till my days end. This is just awesome!
I absolutely love how everything just gets worse and worse for Ariel! First Mr. Wimund, then Ivy+Christian, then Taylor, then Nessa wants to kill him... I feel sorry for him!
I love this story so much! Keep writing!
Author's Response: Nora!! *huggles* you\'re not supposed to feel sorry for Ivy!!! She\'s the villain!! Kidding, you can sympathize with whomever you want. I\'m glad you liked thw squirrels line, it actually happened in real lif >.> I\'ll keep writing. Thank you so much for the review!
