*deletes old about me and bounces in* Hi folks! We're going to do two reps of squats, move onto the bench press, run on over the small step ladders for a minimum of 30 seconds to get those buttocks scrunching, and then we're going to collapse into a desk chair and read!

That's it! One! Two! Three - four! Reeelaaaaaaaxxx!

Vhe are - Dawnie & Steph Aspiring Spice Girls, Princess & Queen of the Typos, Two Top Investigators (and, quite obviously) Skinny pigs and Photobuckeneers.

Oh yeah.

Oh wowee. That was a nice little dumplin of b.s! Or like, interpretive dance in the form of words on a computer screen being blasted across all of the world to make some crazy dog lady drinking tea smile. Or, someone wearing very sexy cowboy boots in a very Salty Lake city grin. Or, it may even be possibly that someone in a very Ily-nnoying state of mind may be reading this. In which case, if you've recovered from the little workout earlier, you'd know I ♥ my sport, particularly the one I'm coordinated at, LJ & PV. Because the others are fun mostly for the laughs I get directed at me when I fall on my sweet little toushe. Although they may not be laughing with me. Hmm.

I'm a Turnip. I atually cooked some the other day, and heard their little plot-bunnies goig up in smoke with a guilty little voice wailing in my mind *cough* But I adore my SPEWlings more than anything, and I love the PIBETA gang more than they know. ♥

Hey hun! Lets just say this chappie is awesomatic (one of my famous made up words) and leave it at that? No? You want more? STONE THE FLAMIN CROWS! THIS IS FAIR DINKHAM AWESOME! lol go the odd Aussie sayings. I really should stop remembering those stupid quotes from H&A!

Like Nat said, DO SOMETHING! Pavarti can't die, no matter how much that darn girl annoys me. "On the other hand..." (AD, HBP) Lavender is welcome to waltz right in Voldie abode =D Won-Won wont miss her!

Toodles, mate, another fab-tastic chapter! Can;t wait for the next one! ;) ~Steph*

Author's Response: Hey Steph! I am honoured you consider my chappie to be "awesomatic"! I've got my plans for Miss Parvati, no worries. I shall 'tie' up those loose ends shortly. **snickers gleefully** As always, thanks for reviewing, hun!

Ah yes, and Points go to Pavarti for even thinking about Floo Powder.. Harry really should give her more credit! And thankyou, thankyou, for mentioning me! ::Bows out as the people throw their roses::

Author's Response: **Throws roses to the magnitrileccent Steph** Yes... Parvati isn't a complete idiot... she is a Gryffindor after all; she's got to have some spunk and guts. :D

Well, I saw your review on the lovely Fatima's story Voice Upon the Waves, and thought i should check out at least on of your stories, as I am hoping to escalate my story to a level that is that of the moderators. I enjoy a number of the other new mods stories, but this one has caught my eye. I usually dont read stories that are completed, I love the thought of not knowing whats happening, but occasionally, a story like this pops through and enlightens me. I'm off to read later chapters!

Leave it to Luna to be so blunt andstraight to the point. That's why I love her! She's just so aware of whats goign on around her in an odd way, although she doesnt appear to take mucyh notice, obviously, if she's in Ravenclaw its all stored in the head somewhere! You captured her personaloty perfectly in those few lines, well done! Also... the "falling from grace" comment and Ginny's interest int the subject....could Gin Gin be pregnant? I shall find out...

Well, i feel for Ginny, as Harry signed his letter as "your friend" Harry, and as for percy, well Ive always imagined him apologising to the Weasley's minus the parsnjips, but in a letter? It doesnt seem like Percy, also tyhe use of third person "why would Harry being tlaking to Percy?" perhaps "myself" would have been a better choice of words? TTFN- chapters await!

I dont know how this time turner thing is going to work out, hopefully for the best! I love stories where there are lots of plot turns, and left-out information,so it is more of a jolt of recognition when you finally realise sometyhing... seems to me this is going to be one of them!

Wow. I was waiting for this story to end... but then i see it still hasn't! It must really take time to pout such feeling out into the computer for other people to see... It really moved me when i read the first 3 chapters, i couldn't believe how realistic it was, and i couldn't belive the pain and conflict Mione was going though. It's so sad, but maybe... just maybe... the last vivist she got wasn't from Draco, and subconsioul;y she belived it was someone else?

its would be so cool if you could check out my story, Malicious Intentions, the latest chapter i wrote (not on there yet) was actually inspired by your story, but of course has nothing to do with it. I don't think anyone could ever compete with such a moving story. ~Steph*

Reviewer: Lurid Signed
Date: 02/19/06 Title: Chapter 10: Decisions

I started to read this story in the early days, back when Delightful Pain was assumed to be a one-shot. That was before I became Lurid, so almost a year has gone past form when i first started reading.

From When Draco first said his first line if dailogue in ch.1, i felt an intense hate for him. I felt extremely sorry for Hermione. I wanted revenge. But, as the storyw ent on, and we delved into Draco's P.O.V (which, might I add was a stroke of brilliance) we saw the inner Draco, and from that, his side of the story. His lust, his wanting and his need. And then, we saw Hermione's character start to develop. We saw her character pitied by many, and then, we saw some reel back in revulsion, all because she discovered she did actually feel soemthing for Draco; something other than fear.

I think that transition was extremely well done, and although you might have lost some reviewers, i feel the message you send from this story, and the power that seems ot come form each chapter effects people in either a negative or positive way regardless.

I would just like to congratulate you on a fantastic story, one full of emotion. Hate, fear, forgivness, and ultimatley, freedom. I thought that final chapter wiht Draco pleading for her to send him to Azkaban was simply beautiful. So plain, so simple, yet so intricatly involved wiht the whole story. It wa slike you summed up the entire story in one, small, sad paragraph.

I hope there is more ot this story, and would just like you to know, you have earned a permanent place on my favourites.


Author's Response: Oh wow thank you so much for such a long review. Normally when I get such long ones I start to bite my nails, fearful of whether this is going to become a flame or what, but thank you for not doing so. DP was once again deleted in another site so I just need all the positive feedback I could get. BUT...I digress...Thanks for sticking with the story, I took the risk to post the rest and I hope some people like you have stuck by me regardless of how much it might have impacted others negatively. I have more to the story though, theres a total of 13 and so we have 3 more to go! So I do hope to and everyone else who might be reading this reply, will stick with this until the end! Thank for rewarding my efforts at such a deep yet controversial story by putting me in your favorites!


Summary: This a story about Harry and his friends in their 6th year. It take's place after JK's OOTP. THe charaters and concept belong to JK Rowling and I am just using her great works as an output for waiting for her next book.

I do think you will enjoy this story. I have gotten many positive reviews. Alot of reviewer says it reads like if JKR wrote it herself. I am not that good, but I do appreciate the kind review.

This is an action adventure, with a touch of romance. I have tried to stay true to JK' orginal works, but there could be inconsistancies. Forgive me, for I am merely a muggle.

Great chapter! Can't wait to be back at Mungo's. Usually i love it there. It just seems so mch less sterile than normal hospitals, and JK makes you feel right at home. It's just so sad seeing Molly there coz as Bill said she's neverbeen admitted before.... Harry's Patronus... i read somewhere in one of your reviews that JKR didn't want them to become Animagus so you wern't going to have that in the storyline...i LOVE the whole green flame aspect, is that referring the title HP & Green Flame Torch? If so where's the torch?
