My name is Jasmine, I'm fourteen-years-old and I attend a Catholic school by day, turning into the author who dubs herself "dragon" by night. I don't really write or read too much fanfiction anymore, though, although I enjoy slashy goodness (D/H, D/R) or a good D/Hr fic any day! I enjoy Cocoa Cola, sunflower seeds (f**k the orthodontist) chocolate, and a whole lot of Harry Potter.
It's a good start. It has the right amount of darkness while not being too angsty. Continue!
This is absolutely wonderful! I love the way you portrayed Draco and the way you carefully word things are great. I can't wait until chapter five! Until then, you know you're on my faves!
I have never read such a great Draco and Ginny fic fanfics (I genuinely mean that) and I have read some really good Draco and Ginny fics. Your story is better than Cassandra Claire's even--maybe she should just stick to Draco and Hermione then. This fic was cute and it seems very plausible. I can't wait to read the little behind the scenes things that they will be doing in the upcoming chapters. You have got to update A.S.A.P.!
This is really a great story. It's so sweet and innocent right now--I can't wait until a bit more action comes up. I'm waiting for chapter three!
That was really good! It's really close to how I expected that to all go down. I really enjoyed the way you made Tom a real sadistic little jerk, although you can see the reasoning behind it. Loved the Dementor's guest appearance, also. Good job!
God, what can I say that hasn't already been said? This is great! As a hardcore Draco fan, I must say that you kept him true to the books. And as a diehard Leather and Libraries fan, I see the hints at a Draco and Hermione relationship and god am I looking forward to it. Plus, you have shed more light (for me) on the whole Draco as the Half Blood Prince thing. I had been leaning more towards Theodore Nott as the HBP but Draco is just as good! I will be waiting for your next chapters.
This is a great story. I had been waiting forever for you to update and when you do, I am late on the uptake. Well, I will be looking forward to chapter fourteen. Oh, I just wanted to know...do you really think Draco is the Half-blood Prince?
Author's Response: Well... I'm not ruling any person out of the running as potential HBP's. I think he is probably the least likely character to actually BE the HBP... If there's one thing I learned from JK Rowling it's that things are never as they first appear and that you can never rule out any possibility, no matter how remote or extreme it may be. Do I really think he is the HBP? I don't know, I'm as clueless as the next person. But it's fun writing a story that seems so unbelievable and making people see the possibility. Thanks so much for the review. Who do you think the HBP is? Somebody once said Theodore Nott... I might have an A/N at the beginning of CH. 14 to explain my reasoning. So many people have sent me emails asking and it might be a good time to clarify. Thanks again.
That was another awesome chapter! However, I must remark that you make it extremely difficult for us Draco and Hermione fans. I can't wait until you get them together--if ever! So, you know that I'm waiting for that. Oh, and I also wanted to say that I loved the way you wrote Draco's Prophecy. The way you write this fic almost makes me believe that Draco has a really good chance at being the Half-Blood Prince! I'll be waiting until chapter 18!
Author's Response: Oh I promise that Draco and Hermione have a long road ahead of them, but hopefully they can salvage some kind of relationship... There will be romance, there will be romantic scenes and moments, but right now the characters are still getting over the reality of their situation. As for the prophecy... I'm glad that you like it. I was very worried that people wouldn't or that it was too corny. Oh well. I am not a poet. Thanks again! It means a lot!
Taigan, this was another brilliant chapter! That explains why you're on my list of faves. Well, as always, I was a bit late when it came to you actually updating the chapter but hey, I do like to be the last reviewer for the chapter since I am just so articulate. :-) Anyway, I loved Draco in chapter 14 and 15. The hotness is starting to shine in his personality. He's kind of reminding me of Jack Dawson from Titanic although I'm not sure why. Can't wait for number 16!
Author's Response: I'm so glad that you liked the characterization of Draco. I've been really concerned that he's been "off" lately. That really makes me feel better. Jack Dawson from Titanic? Hmmm... never really thought of that. Goodness it's been so long since I saw that movie, I'll have to rent it and catch up! Thanks again!
"I have no desire for death. No suicide ever had." --Sarah Kane
This was a sad fic. I can clearly see the emotional ties you have to it. I think that's what separates good authors from the bad--they become the character and try to feel what the character feels. For Draco to undergo so much, it is very understandable why he chose such a bloody way to leave the world--especially if the world he had lived in had turned against him. But as Sarah Kane said, Draco didn't desire death--he desired Ginny. And to know that the only reason that Ginny's gone is because of Lucius must've been hell. I will make sure to read more of your fics!
Author's Response: Very very constructive, dragon. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. By the time I get to have THE same emotions as I did when I wrote L-L, I think I might write the whole story of what really happened... Thank you so much. A pleasure to read such as this... =]
You are insane. Absolutely insane. But in a good way. :-) I loved this fic, even when it kind of rambled on but I dismissed it because it was a part of the story and made a lot of sense. I loved the OOC-ness, even though I usually hate OOC. I loved Hermione, poor confused Hermione, who got rape by drunk Draco. You know what, I still love Draco when he's drunk. He's still a jackass, though. And do you know what I especially loved about this fic up to chapter six? This line: What have you been smoking!? More importantly, where can I get some? That seems like my entire life summarized in a sentence. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Dude! That was an "insane" update! LoL!! You are starting to sound like me!! And yes...i do tend to ramble! Sorry, lol! Wow! Draco is sexy when he is a jerk! And the reason I do OOC sometimes is because it is really fun to do and sometimes to read. That is the whole point of Fanfics, right? To make someone else's ideas the way you want them? LoL! Ya that is a good line, eh? I have fun with this stories, specially readin my reviews! Heart, Tara P.S. I AM insane and forever I shall remain! You JUST wait! LOL
It's very good thus far. I like the whole Tom bit. I can't wait for him to wreak some havoc. And my poor Draco...I can't wait for him to get better either. Ginny and Luna are also very well written so far and I cannot imagine what is up with Ron. I'll be waiting for chapter 2!
Author's Response: Thank you for replying, Dragon. I hoped someone out there liked the story. Of course, if I get reviews, I will put up the next chapter, which was sent about.... five minutes ago. Enjoy!
This was a really good story. You are a badass writer, pardon my French. I must also say that it was confusing at times but it eventually made sense. However, I have to admit that this was more of an Dark/Angsty fic than a R/Hr fic.
Hermione knew this thing she had with Malfoy was purely physical. She knew she shouldn't have fallen in love with him. And she knew that when he said he loved her too, a dozen misfortunes would befall them. Yet they both did admit it and just when she thought this temporary relationship might just last, she was left all alone and he?...Well he became one of Them.
RUNNER-UP in the Dangerous Liaisons Awards for "The Where Did That Come From Award" (Best Twists and Turns) and WINNER in the He Had it Coming Awards.
I also want to add that all this support you all have given me is just fabulous. Thanks a lot. I love you guys!
Love this chapter. Poor Hermione...she's so messed up in the head right now. I can't really see why she's freaking out over the whole Draco situation. I wish she would hear him out! God, I feel like I'm watching a soap opera when it comes to this story. So much drama! Actually, it resembles an ABC soap called All My Children...
I'll be looking out for chapter 21!
Author's Response: All My Children? Really? LOL. I used to watch that when I was 5, but naturally I don't remember any of it, nor do I still watch it. At any rate, you'd be freaking out too if you just found out that the guy you've been trusting and loving for so long suddenly becomes a bloody DEATH EATER! One of those men that you hate and are against. Forget about fanfiction for a moment and think about the Hermione in canon (lol, even tho she'd never really LOVE draco or anything...*sigh*) Hermione in canon would freak out. Nope, she wouldn't freak out, she'd hex him into Hades and then back. Anyway I love soup operas though and this story gets a LOT more soup opera-y.
Once again, you have completely outdone yourself. This was a great chapter but I miss Draco terribly. George sounds dreamy and all but he's nothing like the Prince of Slytherin... You've got to update ASAP. Oh, and I want to congratulate you on those nominations for Dangerous Liaisons. Your name is listed with a bunch of other great authors--you should be really proud. Oh, and I still want you to update Delightful Pain. I went over to the other site you posted it on and if you try hard enough, you can scrape it to a slight R rating here on Mugglenet. It's really that good... That's enough for now. Looking forward to chapter 22!
This is a very good fic! I knew that there was a plot from the beginning--you are too articulate to write pure smut.
Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: thank you. I'm too "articulate" you say? : D I'm happy now!!!
I just read chapter 5 all the way to 19 because I was so behind. Do you know how far your story has come? At first, it was mostly about sex. (You still say sex a lot in your chapters, by the way) Now, it is a story with a real plot. I never really expected for it to have a real plot (no offense.) I can't wait for chapter 20. You had me all into it and then it just ended, with Hermione having little chance of being a mommy, might I add!
Oh, and I knew one of your stories would have a pregnancy! I just figured it would be Delightful Pain but you aren't cliche! I need to stop assuming that everyone is cliche...
Now I'm rambling. Just update!
Author's Response: haha, I haven't replied to my reviews for a while (mainly because I check by clicking on my story... too lazy to log on) but I couldn't resist this time! Hahaha. Well, I'm glad you don't think this is cliched. To tell you the truth, this story was meant to be a one-shot hence the reason why there was no visible plot in the beginning and Hermione acted like a slut. At any rate, I just come to realize I still write about sex a lot. Hahaha, that just shows how peverted I am. Thanks for coming back and reading the rest.
Hey, I know a lot of people don't like graphic sex scenes but you write them so tastefully that even a big prude like myself doesn't really mind them. So I couldn't care less how graphic it is--personally, I'd probably prefer it being so graphic so we can get an idea of the relationship that Draco and Hermione have in your fic. There's a website (Death Curse) where you would be able to post your fic in entirety (yeah, all the romping you want) and get huge reviews. They really like sex down there--especially slash.
Okay, now that I have gone a bit awry, I am going to get straight to the point: Your fic is awesome! I don't care how graphic or corny it can get (corny=good)--you are just great. Please, post more A.S.A.P.!
Author's Response: Hmmm... corny=good? Now that's a first. I'm a prude too sorta. I don't mind reading smut, but doing remotely anything similar (even a hug...) I can't. I like having my hands to myself. Now someone else's hands? A hot guy maybe... I won't say it's bad... lol. Anyway I agree with what you say about the smut being there to explain the relationship. It really will play a major role in the upcoming major events (in ch. 26... no I haven't writtenup to 26 yet... but I wrote an outline) and stuff so pay attention to it a little. I know some good sites where they allow fics to their entirety however I feel like a little kid among all those experienced writer's. Not only how well they write but the fact they are "experienced." But anyway... thanks and I will post more. I just first see if I have a substantial amount of reviews before posting more... I know how evil hmm?
You did a great job thus far! Most authors have difficulty putting two opposites like Draco and Ginny together (or Draco and Hermione, for some authors who like an even greater challenge) yet you pulled it off with grace. You didn't thrust them into a relationship with no reason like some authors but you built a relationship from the ground up, which is really hard. Can't wait for updates!
Author's Response: Check out http://www.fanfictionworld.net/hparchive/viewstory.php?sid=17896 for the rest of the story while it waits to be posted here.
This was very well written. No wonder you have so many reviews! I loved Luna in this fic. You captured the tension between Hermione, Ron and Luna very well. I'll be looking out for your name on the boards!
