"Grapes. Grapes are cool. So are prunes."
As much as I don't like admitting in, I'm damn sensitive to insults. I'm also sarcastic, ignore me if I hurt you....or rather, don't. I hate being ignored and passed over like another nerd. Thanks for putting up with this rant.
Hmm...well, this account's only to review stuff. I'm not intending to actually post up anything; just not nearly as great as making plots as some of you guys are. :P
This story is pretty good so far...could you mention Sirius? When I first clicked on this story, I thought maybe he's doing this because he thinks Sirius is perfect or something. Although he could be out of Hogwarts already.
Author's Response: Sirius is in. That's not the reason though, I guess Sirius is included but we shall see. Sirius doesn't have a big part. Chapter5, is it?, should be on it's way shortly. I'm estimiting this story is lasting untill Chapter 8. I've nearly finished 6. It's exciting that it's nearly finished, and I'm blabbering now... lol. Thankyou for the review.
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
Oh, come on. The first review for this chapter was dated 6/24/07. She's obviously been adding chapters. I believe that it's just that the story's summary that hasn't gotten changed since then.
PS. PLEASE update. It's nearly August!
woah. Great chapter, great dialog!
And I totally forgot who Jinx was for a couple minutes. xD
Love your story so far ;) Creative, but I have some trouble telling Reg, Addy, and Em apart. They seem to have the same basic personality, sarcastic. Their partners seem to, also. Otherwise, it's a great idea. I'll be waiting for the next chapter :D
Lovely chapter. (: The only part I didn't enjoy was the part explaining Harry/Vold. It seemed just too quick to kill both (three?) of them off.
Waiting impatiently for the last chapter. I hope you're writing some kind of squeal after this...?
Author's Response: I\'m sorry you didn\'t enjoy the whole thing with Harry and Voldemort, but it was something I wanted to down play, because even though their battle is the focus of that world, it\'s not the focus of this story. What it represents is though, which is love and betrayal. The recurring theme thoughout the story. It\'s just that Ginny and Harry/Vold betrayal was of a different kind.
Anyway, I\'m sure I\'ve explained absolutely nothing, but thank you for sticking around anyway. :Stupid Smile:
Oh, and sequel information will be explained with the next chapter.
Whoa, you don't get many reviews...love this story ;)
Author's Response: Yeah, I'm pretty bummed about the low review count myself. But it's all good, just as long as the people who are reading it are enjoying the story.
*waits impatiently for the next chapter* Love that new twist you put in there ;)
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. I submitted ch.11 yesterday. So it's all up to the Mods now.
Whoa, an update. 'mazin.
This chapter doesn't feel right next to the last few. The first half of the chapter seemed sort of confusing, I thought I was on the wrong story. It just seems like a different style.
I also can't imagine Goyle being so smart. But the rest of the chapter's pretty good, an almost happy one. :o
Still be watching for another update. :D
Author's Response: Yeah, I kind of wanted it to have a different feel, because Draco and Angelina are actually happy together compared to the last few chapters were they just kind of put up with each other.
And Goyle being smart. I just kind of imagine the reason we think that he and Crabbe or dumb is being we are looking at them through Harry's point of view.
But if you noticed in the Book Six when Draco is having a conversation with Crabbe, we're still looking at him through Harry's eyes, and we all know what Harry thinks about him. But the way Draco is speaking with Crabbe, let's you know it's on going conversation.
So I guess the question is, why would Draco lay out his concerns like that, to someone he think is stupid or beneath him? I don't think he would. So I'm in the mind frame of thinking, that the two are smart, we just haven't been allowed to see it.
This was the only story I saved onto my bookmarks that actually updated...now I can't wait for chapter 7 :D
Author's Response: I'm glad that you're keeping up with my story. More chapters are on the way.
Summary: We start in the beginning in a graveyard with a new character Marguerite. She thinks she is getting married that day, however fate has a different plan in mind. Later we meet up with Remus as he is getting ready to pick up Harry to take him to his parents' graves and Godric's Hollow.
Love the start ;)...a bit short though.
It's a pretty nice start and I hope Mary might show up again and affect Tom's life...I'm also wondering, was Tom really born in a nunnery? I thought it was an orphanage, but maybe he was transfered there later? Your nunnery sounds too fancy for Tom's orphanage.
Ginny’s little slipup to Romilda about her satisfying married life with Harry would get him all worked up…
Whoa this is done already? I definitely thought it was a beginning of a story...Ginny + Harry's marriage not completely perfect is the first I've read.
Also, I think Ginny's eyes are blue, not brown. I can't remember where I read that, but I just wanted to say.
Author's Response: It's possible. But I hope my tidbits I added make it different than the others. Thanks for reading and reviewing.
Summary: When I was a kid, I loved a TV show called This is Your Life. According to www.museum.tv, “Ralph Edwards... developed the formula for a separate radio program called This is Your Life. It began airing on radio in 1948, and became a live television program in 1952, running on the NBC network until 1961, and reappearing in syndicated versions briefly in the early 1970s and 1980s.”
So, I got to thinking about someone in the wizarding world deciding to do the same concept on the Wizarding Wireless Network. Of course someone would insist on doing an episode with Harry, right?
Note: This is Version 2, with more guests on the show!
I was pretty surprised the last 2 reviewers only gave you an average of 3 stars...it's pretty good in the beginning, but when it got to Hermione, it felt really short. Just giving each person a few lines. Maybe you should give each person a whole story, but otherwise, pretty good :)
Author's Response: You're right. I am planning a massive rewrite when I get some downtime between loads.
Summary: As stubborn Lily Evans grows closer to the infamous James Potter, lives are being torn, hearts are being broken. Join them on their unforgettable journey through love and understanding. R&R You'll love it! Not cliche!
Yeah...definitely very short. You might want to add something more to the summary; the only thing that caught my eye to this story was that the summary was only one word.
Author's Response: well sorry, you dont really need to read it. thanks for your support... >(
Hi everyone just to say this story is finished, there will not be any more chapters. Sorry if that wasn't clear beforeb>
Harry and Ginny are married, with a seven-year old daughter. As Ginny finds out she is pregnant with her second child, memories come back to her, good and bad. The war is over, and everyone feels safe. Shouldn’t they? Strange things are happening, mysterious plots are being formed, putting Harry and his loved ones in danger. Everyone knows he will do anything for the people he loves…Especially Ginny.
Lovely chapter. :P I'm glad you didn't change Amy's name just because of pressure, I like that name. Reminds me of cookies for some reason. Tell me this isn't the LAST chapter? :K
Author's Response: aww, sweet! Thank you for liking the name...cookies? Hmm, I like cookies, look down for proof!! And no, this, fortunately is NOT the last chapter!! *Yay*! I don\'t want to end it yet, but I don\'t know how many more chapters I will do...probably a few more I think. Thank you for reviewing! Have a cookie!
I loved your first chapter a bit more, but this will do. Can't wait for chapter 3. o_x; *drools*
The only thing I can suggest is Fleur's speech. I think her english accent would've improved some if she's been married to Bill for a couple of years ;)
Author's Response: thnx!! will update soon, so keep reading!! plus about fleur..well yeah i kno she's been married to Bill, but I thot it would be less canon if i dint put in at least a hint of her still being the same :)thankyou 4 reviewing!!!!!
YES! NEW CHAPTER! :o
How many left, then?
Author's Response: Yay! are you refering to chapter 11? I just posted it like 3 minutes ago, you\'re quick! ;) dont know how many more, maybe five, maybe four, probably no more than ten though. ;)
Sorry. This chapter didn't really suck me in like the previous ones....it was pretty short. STILL WAITING FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER. =K
Author's Response: Yes - I'm sorry it disappointed you slightly. It was very short - especially compared to like chapter 1 and chapter 5!!! I hope you find Chapter 8 more enjoyable. ;) Thanks for reviewing!!
You missed a few periods at the ends of sentences, but otherwise it was GREAT. I suppose you're going to tell the story of Ginny's seventh year soon? ;)
Author's Response: ah yes...u will find out soon ;)
