This is a very good starting...
but Blaise a girl? I thought he would be a gay but he is a real girl

I think I've read this fic more times than I have HBP (which is saying something!) and occasionally accidentally muddle up what actually happens in series.

I love the story..but i can't seem to continue because of this Fem!Blaise..she's so flirty and Mary Sue. I would love to continue reading if Blaise here is a boy. The FemBlaise is the only thing that turned me off. It seems unrealistic for Ginny to just let the flirtatious exchange between Draco and Blaise off that easily. I love the Draco/Ginny pairing though and the other couples.

I hate this. All the good stories are all finished like this one.

Love, love, love, love it! So amazed by your portrayal of Ginny (my favorite character in anything) and I can't help but love the Draco pairing. I have always been a sucker for a bad guy turned good. Anyway, keep on writing because I don't care if your not the honorable J.K. Rowling. She created the characters and we bring them to life! This story is amazing and I thank you for writing a worthwhile Draco-Ginny. So, yeah.

Aaaaahhhh. I doubt you're still even reading these reviews but I just want to let you know that your story is still incredible fun in 2013. This is my third or fourth time rereading it. I'm not even sure how I found it, I can't quite remember, except that it showed up in search somewhere. Hope your life is going well and you've gotten some things published/made some progress since now. Random observation from sleepiness but it's a bit sad how many good HP fics I've read lately that are all from 2005-2007, seems that was really the golden age, and so many of them aren't finished. That's all. Thank you :)

Hi, Kerichi!

You may not remember me, but I used to post anonymously under the name "Sweet Musk Rose." For the longest time I couldn't find you by name or title because I had stupidly forgotten them both. But I found you and your marvelous stories once again!

I wanted to let you know that you had a huge influence on me in my life. It sounds so stupid and mawkish to be saying this, but the Harry Potter fandom and every other fandom I've come to love over the years has saved my life multiple times, just by virtue of keeping me out of and uninterested in the bad situations that a lot of kids these days find themselves in. Instead of spending my time around confused, people-pleasing floozies and burnouts, I hung out in my head. It's probably not cool to brag about this but, I pretty much have zero recollection of middle school and high school. The only things I can remember were the insignificant and mundane things.

Between my brother and sister, I am a complete enigma to my parents. I never had any part in sports (or getting kicked out because of drug usage). Never had my heart broken by my best friend and my boyfriend who got caught having sex at my graduation party. Never got into wrecks or almost attacked by gangs in the city. Never hung around hookah bars trying to look goth, then punk, then scene, and then ironically hipster.

I've always just been me: a freakish, stubborn little bookworm that only ever has surprised people with my predictability. I know it's not exciting, but I really like who I am. And a lot of it was because of you and all of the absolutely wonderful, beautiful people that make up the community of writers on fanfiction.

I've always felt like a person who only needed books to understand people. In fact, it's only because I read so much that I was able to have good judgement. I would have never been the type of girl parents looked at and said "You're wise beyond your years" or "You seem very responsible" if I hadn't had a long history of introspection and learning about other people through books/fics/movies/music.

Literally having access to others' thoughts, you can see people develop stage by stage. From the really awful serious attempts at writing gone awry to the "not-total failures" to the "this is quotable, why hasn't everyone on earth been exposed to it yet?" and the "Holy shit. I think this just changed my life and my general way of thinking. This author is so deep. I hope I can be like that one day."

I sincerely love this community of writers. I love all of the amazing fics and the extremely trashy and pointless or self-gratifying lemons. They all make me so happy that I want to laugh and even cry. Because this community is like a microcosm of the human spirit. Stories teach us new things. There is nothing that can compare to the written and spoken word. I believe they transfer more than just knowledge, but experiences as well. And the stories we love grow with us.

Kerichi, there was a time when I couldn't sleep without listening to an audiobook recording of "The Five Jars" by M.R. James. It's narrated by a man named Peter Yearsley. A man I will never meet in my life. But his voice is like the dead grandfather I will never know.

There are all of these people that I will never meet in my lifetime. But because of their stories and their love of stories, they are dear to me anyway. I think that is the best thing about a site like this and book clubs and Crunchyroll and Raid Call and Librivox. It brings us together in a more deep and meaningful way than social networking sites that remind me so much of the superficial encounters of high school and college parties.

There is something so intrinsically human and personal about reading another person''s story or hearing their voice as they sit halfway across the world playing the same game. Or seeing people's comments or reviews of shows and finding out that they cried at the ending too, dammit! Even finding out that you're not the only one who will horribly karaoke Pieces by Sum41 at midnight on a Tuesday. Like seriously, did you know that Brazillian gamers (fluent in Portuguesa ONLY) LOVE and I mean absolutely LOVE pop music and grunge and rock? And did you know that they freaking LOVE DUETS? What a generous group of people!

I really love people. I love people and I understand most of them. And I think that's the key to the happiness that I've had my whole life. I've always gotten enough of a sense of belonging from total strangers, without ever really fitting in with the people surrounding me.

I've never done anything too crazy or wild or attention-seeking. I've never felt the need to. And as I see more and more people who feel like they're all alone and have to turn to drugs or self-abuse or risk-taking behavior, it makes me really appreciate what you and everyone in this community has done for me. _

I wanted to thank you, because you were a huge part of it. I had always loved A Midsummer's Night Dream and everything Shakespeare has ever written. (I would sing sonnets in the shower and especially Ariel's song, Full Fathom Five, from the Tempest,, because I thought it was so beautiful and sad.)

But, it wasn't until you (someone around my age) came along and popped my little bubble of isolation, that I really allowed myself to love Shakespeare without feeling embarrassed. You breathed new life into my favorite verses and reinvented the most loved aspects of his works with all the love and endearment of cult-classic following.

And I know that's not really a great way of putting it,, but I love your writing. And this whole community and the fandoms fueling it have saved me from feeling alone and isolated and unloved by people who didn't understand me or found me strange.

Thank you so much for putting a piece of yourself out there. It's your earnest heart that's reflected in your stories. And it has helped more than just one person, I'm positive of it.

Wishing you well always,

S.B.

Luna lovegood's fathers name was not Larry. It's xenophilius lovegood.
Erin chapter 5 . 1/4/2013
I actually laughed out loud a little when one of the names you used was Tom Felton. The use of famous name was really amusing actually :)
This is also not usually the type of fan fic I read. I'm mostly overly obsessed with scorose. But this is pretty close in character, Ginny and Draco. And it's pretty good so far! Can't wait to get farther into it. :)
Guest chapter 7 . 8/30/2012
Oh my god I really like this fanfiction. But I hate Blaise; she's always flirting with Draco..ugh.

Draco and Ginny belong together, as do Blaise and Terry. I really like all of your other characters, but it's just something about Blaise; probably because she's a girl.

Cheers.
Ashfeather chapter 50 . 7/27/2012
Amazing story...Only thing is...I just wished Blaise had been a boy instead.
