Ah, clever clever Snape...
Excellent story! I look forward to reading more!

This is addressed to your fic as a whole rather than this chapter, but I really like your characterization skills. You're got Tom, Ginny and Luna interacting despite not much cannon detail between the three and got them in character, which is great (especially for Luna, since it's oh so hard to find a fic that portrays her right). Aaaaannnd you manage to have a compelling plot, so kudos.
Oh, and please commence with your water-related chapters as I find them pretty clever, although I won't blame you do decide to drop it.

You are really smart to setting a stage where tom cannot be more powerful than Ginny. It balance the power of two sides, which make your story more convincing and reasonable

It is a truly great tom/Ginny story. I guess Ginny might be the only hope that can
Make tom doubt about his only goal in life- gaining power
Your tom is still cold hearted, cruel and powerful. Still I suspect he did ignore tons of chances of killing Ginny. Changing sides is impossible for tom. But not sacrificing himself for another ugly him is convincible. And I feel tom actually is getting more possessives of Ginny and it is inevitable considering their history and Ginny's obvious Slytherin behavior

| Guest chapter 18 . 3/18/2013
are you going to finish it? because it's realllyyy good, I've always thought of gin n tonic as kinda weird but even if this isn't going to be romantic (which I hope it is, lol) this one is AMAZING and has got me looking for more!

I like the way you wrote about how Tom thinks of Voldemort...

Please update. This is one of the best tom and ginny's fic I've read. :)

oh, what a fine story I definitely enjoyed reading it. I do especially like how you've written Tom. It's fun to see how he's trying to deal with the situation he's been thrown into. It can't be easy being locked away in a room for half a year. Of course, he would try to find ways to escape. Your idea with the wand and the duel between Tom and Ginny was so much fun to read. Stupid Tom. Once again his arrogance was his downfall. Just like Voldemort in goblet of fire. No talking, more avadas ;) the chapters following that duel were kinda sweet. It was nice to see Tom's vulnerable side and how cranky he was.
I wonder if Ginny can manage to talk some sense into Tom. At least in this chapter she already tried, but that didn't work out at all.
I have to admit I have a problem with Harper, though. He kinda seems to be a plot device to make it more difficult for Ginny and Luna to reach the room of requirement. I don't know what you've planned for him, I would actually love to see him helping Ginny and Luna. actually, in this chapter, I thought Harper's idea of going to mcgonagall and tell her was a rather sensible thing.
That's another thing I don't really understand. Why are Ginny and Luna keeping Tom's existence a secret? He is obviously very dangerous, and Ginny and Luna seem to be quite overchallenged with their task. Why not tell the order? Tom's very intelligent, I can already see him using that lack of communication for his own plans. It was the same with the wandlore book and Ginny not telling Luna about it. Tom used that and he nearly escaped because of it.
nagging aside, I really love your story. I'm looking forward to the next chapters. and more Tom and Ginny interaction ;)

Last time I read this story it was about 3-4 years ago. So I had to reread it. Wow. You really did a great job in keeping both Tom and Ginny in character and let them interact in a rather believable way. I especially liked the little conversation they have in the latest chapter. It would be great to see it from Tom's POV.
