I just read your piece and it really is great work :) Loved it to pieces - whatever prices you won, you definitely earned them. Normally I am not into Draco/ Ginny, but this was so much fun to read and made them seem so natural with each other, that I started to like the pairing quite a lot :)

I love this story! Wish there were more to read! I can totally picture everything that's transpired between Draco and Ginny as if they were a movie! Well done! Thanks for sharing your story, D&G. :)

I love it! It started like ok, fine, but get absolutely awesome by the end! You always write some amazing lines and small moments, like dialog about Ginny ruining Draco shoes, "where to go, Gabbana?", Ginny being able to hold alcohool better than Draco (delicate Malfoy organs, lol), his naughty thoughts... well many things.
Oh and last line made me burst out lauthing out loud, as I remembered that somewhere early in the story he assumed that with a girl like Ginny he risks having bite marks and rope burns and then in the end she asks him how good is he with ropes... just big, huge ROFL!
Thank you for writing this, I had a great time reading it!

I have to agree with Kitivi, that line is hilarious!

"Draco stood out like a glittering unicorn amidst a herd of wet donkeys." Best line ever!

This was ridiculous, hilarious, and heartwarming at the same time. I LOVE your description of Draco, it's so effortless but I feel like I can truly visualize him in my mind. At first I was weirded out by the party bus, but it made for some amazing scenes. I LOVE the DG fluff. So adorable. :) Oh, and the muggle dating description was amazing! So many things I want to include but then I'd be copy/pasting the whole story here. Overall awesome!

*beams widely* that was absolutely wonderful. Love that Draco develops morals at exactly the wrong moment...

So was Ginny just trying to make herself feel better when she said it wasn’t a competition on who does better after a divorce? Anyhow, it was pretty creative starting the story off with a short, to the point description of where Ginny is. It gave the opportunity to focus more on what she’s feeling/thinking/doing than the surroundings. I also really appreciated that you didn’t dwell on scene for three or four paragraphs too. Your first sentence held all the information I could need about where she was and it wasn’t an info dump.
I enjoyed the descriptions of muggles online dating and how it was normal for them to be neurotic and bizarre. That made me chuckle. I think the best part so far was her thought of “I like paella.” The description before it when she was thinking about the fun loving music nerd mixed with morosely after she’s thought it made it seem like that was the worst of it all and I could see her pouting in my head.
Your introduction for bringing Draco into the scene gave me chills. It was really well done and you capture his arrogance and aloofness like it was your second nature. In just a few lines you’ve characterized both Draco and Ginny in a spot on, yet believable way, that doesn’t completely ignore canon. I think you’ve also humanized them with the way Ginny reacts and the gleefulness I sensed in Draco when he closed a deal that made him a ‘gazillion’ pounds richer. It was the use of the word ‘gazillion’ that made me come to that conclusion.
Using dialogue to describe what Ginny’s wearing and then having Draco come to the conclusion of her being a prostitute was a great way to include some humor too. I think the adult approach of Ginny asking about his life was the right way to go. So many people would have written in some immature or hateful response and that can take away from the maturity gained from living life.
I originally thought using so much dialogue without tags wasn’t the best idea, but then I realized what it achieved…I viewed it as a creative way to show time passing, that they got involved in talking to each other. That was a great idea. I’d never thought of it before. I suppose it doesn’t work all the time, but it was a better alternative to like “five minutes later we were,” this and that.
The switch to Draco’s 3rd point of view was needed and placed nicely. Showing Ginny’s inebriation with ‘whassamatter’ was hilarious by the way. And I liked the reference to the Slim Shady song. Woohoo! I loved how she brazenly hooks her fingers on his belt. LOVE IT! It’s a shame this is a T rating.
The Apparation of shame indeed! You had me going there for a minute. I was like, ‘wow, this is pretty detailed for a T rating though. Maybe…” and then it’s destroyed. That’s okay. I knew I was going into a T rating and nothing higher. I’m impressed with the way you show time passing with conversations going from Quidditch players to Max the squib bartender. It makes the whole story flow nicely, but doesn’t make me feel like anything is being left out either.
So I stopped reviewing because it started getting really good. The party bus, the whole penis shaped balloon between Ginny’s chin and breasts and the image Draco got from it…it was all hilarious.
There was a couple of mistakes that I noticed. For example: “She saw the way he was looking at him…” I think it actually should’ve been ‘her’ instead of him. There’s also this one, “imaging him stretching it downward,” I think you meant imagining. Honestly, the only reason I notice them was because I was intensely reading it word for word, so that’s a plus. Usually, I just skim read.
I love Draco’s reluctance to end the night. It’s super cute and makes me want the story to go on forever. And I actually got a little more M rating in this T story, so it was all around great. Fabulous job! Thanks for writing and sharing.

That was sizzling. I loved reading every bit of this. The bus seemed huge, like they could have gotten lost in it. I've never heard of anything like it. Awesome story! I like how Draco was the light weight too. That was amusing. And the rope at the end. Oh yes. :) Happy reader! :)

Heyy, It's me (Moi)!
I was trying to write the introduction to my thesis, but I have been feeling so discouraged today. So I decided I wanted to read your fic.
I don't regret the decision. Omg, I don't! This was so perfectly done, I felt with them. Especially with Draco, because most of the story was his PoV. So I'll switch to Spanglish so that I can express my admiration better :P
Ya sabes que tu uso de adjetivos y sinónimos me sorprende todos los días. I wish I knew half of them so that I could write beautiful, poetic thesis and articles in english XD.
Me gusta mucho como se desarrolló la historia. Cuando vi el título sin haber leido nada, pensé "this is so cliché'd", porque pensé lo mismo que Ginny (and everyone, I think) cuando lo vio por primera vez. Pero tiene una buena excusa, y más aún considerando el final de la historia _ Además, con algunas excepciones puntuales, ambos estuvieron dentro del personaje que visualizo para ellos (of course, not JKR's). The exception was Ginny being so exessively wild when drunk (mostly), and... that's all. I can't remember another, if there was one. If you think it thoroughly, her personality suits the design of the story very well, despite me not being accustomed to that kind of Ginny. She's likeable, too. So I won't complain :P
Draco was very well into my conception of Draco. I loved the inner struggles he had at first about Ginny, which then developed into struggles for trying not to be that evident on the outside. I regretted along with him his first decision, and cherished the fact that he didn't take her right away after all because, despite what he told her at the end, the opportunity to make that kind of bond (not the physical kind) wouldn't have appeared in the past.
Finally (though there was so much more in my mind to tell you when I read it...as usual), I loved that it was him, and not Ginny, who took that risky step of showing sincere, real (and sober) interest in the other. He is the one with the most pride issues.
You know, I remember years ago when I told you how much I disliked guys with long hair. Well, you can be pleased to know that I don't feel so strongly about that anymore. This was the first fic from your classic Dracolong-hair in which I don't cringe at the image of it :)
I hope we can talk soon!
Love you _
