This is a thing of beauty, politicking at its finest. This reminds me of House of Cards.
Both characters work. The issues are small, but important on the level of the people who are playing the game. Good job.
One question, tho: is Draco progressive because it is in vogue due to Harry's win and the backlash against purebloodist sentiment, or is it his real opinion? Quick way to restore the family name, after all.

Hmm, I THINK this is unlikely, but it's cracking me up laughing thinking of the reactions to what they're planning! :-D

Holy crap. I never thought I'd read a D/G that didn't make my flesh crawl (and yes, with the UST undertones in this one, I'll call it a D/G). Surprised I hadn't read it before. Bravo.

Not my favourite story of yours, but then I imagine that's the same for most people.
Firsty, I'm amazed that nobody died! I'm also quite impressed that you've taken two very one dimensional characters and actually given them something of a personality. I think that the line about the conjured shoes was overkill, but amusing nonetheless. Would I be correct in detecting slight hints of an 'almost-affair'? Anyway, onto your other stories, and here's to hoping that Hermione doesn't get the role of Headmistress.

I don't hate it ... BAH!, it's actually quite good...
I get the feeling, especially because I've read your other works, that you actually understand a lot more of narrative than I do.
I'm commenting, not just because of this story, but because I get the impression you are TWENTY YEARS further along the 'author skill set' than I am...
...even though I'd estimate you are in you are only in your mid 30's physically...
...Nevertheless, this is the kind of writing I hope to achieve when I, y'know, get "OLDER"

Nice banter and many interesting pieces hinting at what happened in the world behind this story, but then... there's not really a plot behind it, a little shallow compared to other stories you've done or at best a small nifty pleasure piece without large impact. Nice but not lasting in memory.

(: loved it.

I really like the idea and what you’ve done with it, and the way you’ve portrayed Ginny and Draco’s adult selves. The pair’s conversation about manipulations and the practicalities of getting their way is very good.

An excellent example of making fine lemonade out of lemons. I quite enjoyed this story, which is not only canon-compliant but rich, complete and satisfying in and of itself.

This is a great story-I hope you continue it. Are they planning to update the Potions book as well? Surely some progress has been made since Sluggy's day, too.
I would love to be a mouse (or a rat) at the ensuing Board of Directors meeting, though.
Please continue this!

Here snooping as promised in The Readers Have Chosen forums.
Something about the opening bothered me. I think it may be that you offered a lot of "background" info in the first four paragraphs. Given that these are Potterverse canon characters, there was more there than needed for this tale and it felt like telling rather than showing.
But beyond a trifle too much snark from Malfoy, primarily at the opening, I enjoyed the negotiations very, very much. This story is an interesting premise and expands on J.K. Rowling's canon in believable ways, something I enjoy a great deal. My favorite aspect is the intelligence and respect you grant to Ginny. All said, an enjoyable tale!
