I hate this story just as much as I love it. It was EXTREMELY hard to get through, due to all the heavy subject matter, but - It was really worth it. It's so well written, which I think just makes it all the more poignant. This is truly a marvel.

Okay I had started this fanfic MONTHS ago, and NEVER thought it would be THIS amazing! (Sorry). But really though, now, when I think back to Ginny in her heels at Folk Hills and sneaking out of her house to the ending where she has a child and is in this heart-wrenching love triangle, I'm just like, 'WHOA! I freaking LOVE it!'
This was so realistic and so detailed and so AMAZING! If you turned this into a book, I swear you would be a millionaire author and I would buy ALL of your books and go to your book signings, etc. etc.
I'm planning on telling ALL of my fellow fanfic readers about this story. SOO amazing. I can't get over it. It's 1:37 right now in VA (yes! I live where she and Blaise lived! lol!) and I don't even know how I'm going to sleep! I can't stop thinking about this story! You're such an amazing writer! GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL FOR WRITING THIS STORY! lol! Okay I'm all over the place, I should stop. Phew. Thank you so much :)

What an incredibly intricate story you've woven here. I was unsure about the story when I first began reading it, but I was quickly hooked - by halfway through, I became unsettled but couldn't seem to stop reading. The world you've created is so full of complexities, with characters that have so many dimensions to them. It's hard to imagine the progression from the first chapter to the last - that the innocent Ginny working for Folk Hills with her blue ribbon and heels could become what she became (and what I suppose she always was). What I found particularly interesting was the history you created with the different houses. The moment before Luna dies, when everything clicks... It's a magical and terrifying moment. I found Ginny's childhood interesting as well, from her moment on the staircases to her in the attic - I almost wish there was more on that subject, but I don't think I could have handled it (for there's nothing more unsettling than a child doing and saying things like that). After I finished each chapter, I held on to a hope that things would start to look better (and for awhile they do, especially once Ginny is living on her own, going to support groups, hiding from everyone), but the ending was so heartbreaking, so tragic. I dare say that this piece of fanfiction is better than some of the published fiction I have read (and I have read A LOT). That said, there are parts of the story that are confusing, and we are left we a number of unanswered questions at the end of the work. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but a little more clarification could go a long way, and could make the end of the story even stronger than it is. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with this story and look forward to reading more from you in the future.

I can't figure out and would very much like to know; If Draco is fated to be with Ginny due to his adopted Malfoy name or his Riddle (Marvolo) blood? Or is it the Black family? In which way is he related to the dead queens two sons? Ginny is clearly heir to the dark wizard which was Edmund Crow - and also the first daughter of the Wesleys after Miriam. And Draco is the adopted son of the Malfoys thus connected to Lancaster Malfoy but this connection to the Queen and her to sons puzzle me. Who is Ishar - the great traitor in his family tree? And is Blaise in any way part of the myth? I have reread your story once again and I still love it but would like the answers to above. And know more about the great war preferably in a sequel.,,, ;0)

WOW, what a story! I loved the other stories you wrote and I'm so glad that I starting reading fanfiction again and had the opportunity to read more of your writings. I did not see this ending coming at all and I'm so confused with everything that happened... I guess I'll just have to read it again :) Please write a sequel to this story... and even though you said you'd never profit off these stories, I would seriously consider paying/bribing you for more.

You are seriously my favorite writer. I can't find ANY good books lately, because no other writer matches your use of characterization, plot, and dialogue. Everything you write really breaks rules and takes a step further. Envy and Manipulations is brilliant and if you ever publish a book, can you please tell us readers?

Oh my God after the 20th or so read of the series I think I know exactly what's happening! What a tangle web you've weaved rrabbit! Quick question can you accept sent in fan mail, because you seriously are my favorite author. Never have I been this interested in a story before. Seriously, I read the chapters line by line looking for more clues and underlining meanings, seriously what author does that. You keep me in such suspense. I am convinced you are a publish author writing in incognito, if you are like I think you are, what other books do you have out there, because I solemnly swear I will devote my days devouring them, not just read them mind you, but devour. You, whoever you are, are a gifted being, your knack for story telling is incomparable. You make reading fun, heck I started reading other books because I loved yours so much and read it monthly, but of course those other books can never live up to yours. Nothing I've read so far can touch this story. It is that good, I even started recommending it to other writer friends. Your story is like the perfect outline and example of a great book that more people should take notice of and see this is how you write a story. This story I kid you not has so many layers. My emotions run like a roller coaster ride, Im happy, sad, scared, crying, and moved at the same time. You are incredible, bless your nimble fingers and glorious mind. I'll still be waiting around anytime you wish to grace us with an update, just a warning I will be stocking this thread like my life depended on it, well at least my reading happiness. You set the bar so high, this story has tainted me from other stories. I kid you not, and also to throw this little shipper plug in, I like the DG dynamic. DG lost its flavor with me a while ago, but after another read from this story, I'm ready to start making shipper DG t-shirts for a series that ended years ago. In my humble opinion you revived the Harry Potter series. And I will always be eternally grateful that I clicked on your story link one early winter morning last year. Your story changed my life!
I think I might like your story more than some of Jk's original work. *runs back to hide behind bush*

Dear my fav fanfic writer (rrabbit),
I must share with you a story that I recently read that I think you may enjoy reading too! Its a tom/ginny ship story, I don't know if you've heard of it or not but it is wonderful. It's called "Prejudice and Pride" by bballgirl32
Anyways, as always, I remain a fan and follower of your stories! I can't wait for a new one!

Well I think Draco is not totally evil but still a bad person but you redeemed him because you write him as a victim of the evil acts of the past ... Even though he is the son of voldemort I think he knows about love because he has narcissa's care while Blaise have Ruth's neglect... I still hold judgement if Blaise really loves ginny or knows about love ... Based on chapter 21 Blaise killed carmine zabini while he was young soooo really that's disturbing ...
Draco and Blaise grew up together ... I think Blaise feels some kind of bond to Draco at first because he thinks they both have inner darkness which cannot be redeem...that's why Blaise is fine doing Draco 's will at first ... They are both twisted...But then ginny came ... And she was a foreign thing ... Draco learns about love and experience mutual love while Blaise always at the side of draco see the transformation of his bff and felt left behind...that might peak his interest to ginny BUT then that is all speculation hahaha and maybe too shallow ?
I really can't accept Blaise loves ginny even though he let her have Ethan with them, gave her a somewhat normal livelihood, let her do her dream to be a writer, ask her first if they can have another baby bla bla after he abducted her and wipe her memories... It's not enough proof to redeem him of his past actions like he let ginny stay locked up in voldemort mansion i think blaise knows voldy is raping ginny and making her drink some unknown potion...the house elf is a servant of Blaise. he can just order the elf to apparate her out since the elf rule is to do his masters bidding- whatever it is,-thats why they can apparate even in hogwarts strong wards... Was he scared of voldy ? But if he truly like ginny isn't it worth the risk to save her against voldy like draco did? blaise love ginny? That's some kind of sick horror love from Blaise .. Did he strike a deal with voldy? ... I think he did maybe? ... It explains whyTom spirit knows everything about zabini plans ..?
Regarding about the legend of the Malfoy sooo does that mean Blaise is just getting what is rightfully his because he is a Malfoy but a bastard one... Sooo Draco is the hindrance ? He is not truly a Malfoy ... Does Draco know now? In chapter 22 it seems like Draco thinks Blaise betray him when truly he is the other man/ lover lol ... The past about Miriam weasley repeated but the role was reverse ... Merek is Draco and Blaise is Lancaster ? ...sooo does that mean Miriam loves Merek? its a happy ending then until blaise ruined it by abducting ginny it might be Lancaster revenge?... but ginny is edmund's descent does that mean ginny doesnt really love anyone? ... alsooo the serpent and the queen who is really the descendant of the queen is it the malfoys or riddles family? since ethan is draco's child does that mean its riddles family? sooo the phropecy about the union of powerful family means riddles and weasley? Then why did the malfoys think its them? Maybe because the queen have two sons ? What happened to them? Did they both have descendants that's why it's this messy... and edmund told ginny tom is nothing but a half breed when infact Draco came from that half breed? My head is spinning here haha is Draco the one the prophecy says or not ... But he isn't a Malfoy ...he made a baby with ginny... And ginny is a present representation somewhat of Miriam who said she will not have a baby with a Malfoy which is can be only bloody Blaise! the prophecy did not fulfilled right?sooo it's a happy ending! Then why everything is on fire lol
Ginny ... Ginny... is she really Edmund or is it Ethan who is Edmund ... Voldy and Edmund says ginny has a corrupt mind before they came ... But I think the decision depends on ginny herself ... Voldy and Edmund believes that men are innately evil... But I believe ginny does not ...She loves her son Ethan that means something right...consciously? Or is this about subconsciousness lol ginny has dual personality ? Noooo don't want ... Haha
All in all I think I'm not suppose to think this but I think Draco is also a victim of all the manipulations ... He thought he was the big bad guy but he is not ... He was brain wash since birth ... All his life it was a big lie and he can't fight back because he does not know the truth..
. Haa your story is like a maze that I can't find the exit ... roads are jumbled and intense ... i guess thats how you want it ...would it be possible to see what is in draco and blaise point of view ... i just felt ginny is a bit unreliable in telling the story lol Anyway thanks for making this big distraction in my life haha hope to see more!
