*Giggles* I love Plotting!Draco. Sure, he's just been gutted open by Harry, but hey! That doesn't mean he can't try and win him over lol.
I LOVE your Veela!Harry! He's smart, he's powerful, he knows what he's entilted to and will go after it. SQUEE! I'm glad you got rid of the destinted mate thingnbecause it means Harry ad Draco aren't immeditaly soulmates, but will have to work for it. Would Harry's helper perhaps be Fleur Delacour? I'm always surprised that most Veela stories don't even mention her, especially when Harry turns out to be a half veela or whatnot and needs someone to teach him about his interhertiance.
Anyways, I can't wait to see more!

Glad to see you writing a new story!
Really enjoyed the first chapter and hope to read more. You've taken a well-worn fanfic cliche and already made it fresh and interesting. I'm really curious about Harry's summer and his goals as well as what kind of mate he's looking for.
I LOVE how he reacted to Draco. What a fabulous scene! Draco's gotten quite the wake-up call and changed his tune quickly. I really love how you were able to bring all of that about in the first chapter without it seeming rushed like so many other fics.
Best of luck with the next chapter.

I was excited when I found that you have started a new story and, I must say, it's looking just as great as 'Raspberry Jam'. Looking forward to the next update.

An interesting start :)

I was so happy when, as I casually skimmed through the Harry Potter section, I noticed that you'd started another story *praises*. This chapter was fascinating, and I especially like how you've characterised Pansy as intelligent, not a whiny bitch. Does x-male mean something more than just half-Veela? Great job XD

This is a really good start. Very informative first chapter... I like that Harry did practically gut Draco in the first chapter. It bodes well for their future relationship, I think ; )

Merlin! You're back. I watched forever for you to do a sequel to Raspberry Jam. Love this. Creature fics(particularly veela) are my very favorite...well as long as they are Harry/Draco fics. Can't wait to see where Harry got all his imfo and education on Veela. He seemed well versed in Veela law and his change. Mr. know it all Dumbles didn't know Lily was a Veela and not a muggleborn or that Harry had came into said inheritance, so there had to be a reason Lily kept it a secret. My first guess is Lily was somone important in veela society. Loved how you had Harry plan for the news to come out in front of everyone. I'm rambling now, so I will say thanks for the new story. Hope to see the next chapter soon. Glad you are back.

OMG! Fangirl Squee! I absolutely love RJ as one of my all time favorite, 'Harry is not as dumb as you think he is' stories, which has become my absolute favorite character portrayal and to see that you're writing another story makes me positively giddy. I love your writing and can't wait to see where you go with this. It looks to be a very interesting twist on the 'veela mate' story. Thanks for sharing!
