Nice and sweet and I LOVE a fic that feeds my Ginny hatred...well done!
Thank you! ♥

Ginny-bashing can be such fun. ;)

Sorry for the late response - I'm terribly delinquent with responses. It was awesome to meet you at Terminus, BTW!
Oooh, this was absolutely lovely and adorable! :D It made me smile and laugh and I love that in a story. Also YAY for bitchy Ginny, that woman just gets on my nerves 90% of the time anyway!

I'm so glad you liked it! Somehow I picture Ginny turning into a more bitter version of her mum - glad that worked for you. ;)

Sorry for the late response - I've been a terrible delinquent, but do appreciate that you took time to read & comment during the fest.
Ahhh, such a lovely little fic! Great job xx
Thank you!
Sorry for the late response, but I'm so very glad you liked it.
What a delightful read and a wonderfully told story!

Nice job Team Epilogue!

Thank you!
I had a lovely time writing it, and am glad to hear you enjoyed the read.

(Sorry for the late response - I'm abominably delinquent.)
That was an adorable fic! I loved the interaction between Harry and Dumbledore - and Harry's insistence that he just wants to do the right thing. So very Harry.


Hey there! Thanks for reading this way-back-when; apologies for not responding earlier.
I did have fun with this one, even though it came out a bit fluffy. ;)
Charming! <3 The dialogue is witty. The development is well-paced. I love how strong Harry comes out in the end. And it was very sweet of Draco to do all that. His snarky humor is very adorable. Love, love, love and many props to you for writing this fic.

(Oh and, I don't usually hate them but, here, I just felt like Ron and Ginny should both drop dead. O__o;;)
Thank you for such awesome feedback!
I don't usually write such unpleasant Weasleys, but I'm glad to hear it worked in this case.



(Sorry for the horribly late response; I do appreciate your reading and commenting during the fest!)
Wonderful that Inaction is brought forward as a decision and is an action. I loved the scene with Dumbledore. The pub interactions were great. excellent story.
Hello there!
*waves*

Thank you! I'm glad to hear it worked for you; this fic was cut a bit short due to deadline pressure, so the feedback is extra-useful for a potential rewrite. ;)

Sorry for the late response - I've been a terrible delinquent, but do appreciate that you took time to read & comment during the fest.
Lovely story. Enjoyed it.
Thank you!
it's h/d as i like it. simple, uncomplicated and nicely paced. i liked it much. :)
Thank you!
I was trying to do a basic, straight-forward approach, and am glad to hear you liked it.


Sorry for the dreadfully late response - I do appreciate that you took time to read & comment during the fest.
Excellent story; those of us not Tarot-literate appreciate the explanation being included.
Love the tightness of the story also. Well written and enjoyed.

Thank you!
I'm working on a slightly longer rewrite, as deadlines forced me to omit a couple of scenes, so it's a bit tighter than I'd planned! I'm glad to hear that can be a plus, though. Tarot is a mystery to me as well, so inclusion was mandatory. ;)

Sorry for the late response - I appreciate that you took time to read & comment during the fest.

"Yeah," James said, "And he's hung like a ..."
*snort*
Mmm! I want a smoky mango drink! What is it?? (I want it to be real)
Harry's breath hitched, and the last few minutes' conversation shattered and reformed in his mind.
That's so well-phrased, especially given his classic cluelessness, even when Malfoy says something as point-blank as "I miss men"
Ok, Gellert and Dumbles playing chess in the Kings-Cross afterlife=win
"But I liked those names!"
"Even I find it creepy."
"Are you sure you're from my head?"

Ha!!! Hahaahahah!
Hm, I do feel that, despite the lovely UST you built up, that the sex came a little quickly, not to mention that you never really got into, you know, Harry potentially being interested in men
Sweet, and fun!
Thanks for the feedback!
I'm afraid that there's some untranslatable magic in the smoky mango drink, so no luck. ;)
I'm also 100% with you on the timing - I got into a deadline crunch, and had to omit some planned scenes, but am working on a rewrite to address those issues. (Hopefully before the holiday fest season starts!)

Sorry for the late response - I've been a terrible delinquent, but do appreciate that you took time to read & comment during the fest.
I loved this! The scene in the lift was wonderfully written and I especially like Lily's adoration of Malfoy. Great job!
Thank you!

I appreciate the feedback, and that's my favorite bit as well. (OK, I love the idea of Ron running him over, but that's not exactly a scene.)

Sorry for not replying in a timely fashion, and thanks for reading and commenting during the fest!
I really enjoyed this story. The Harry/Draco interaction was great, and the near death experience worked well with the prompt. And I have a definite thing for too-turned-on-to-last-very-long Draco, so I thought the sex scene was very hot.
Hello there!
*waves*

Thanks for the feedback. ;) I'm actually working on a rewrite for this one, since it was unfortunately slimmed-down to meet deadline. One of these days I'll be on time - really!
Maybe even with comments. x.x
this was a nice story to read before bed. v. sweet. i really enjoyed it. ♥
Thank you!
*hugs*
*waves*

This may be the single fluffiest thing I've ever written. It's slated for a bit of a fill-out rewrite, as deadline issues meant I skipped over bits in the middle. Hopefully before the holiday fest season starts... ;)

Thanks for reading & commenting way back during the fest, and sorry for being so delinquent in replying!
really sweet and lovely. and great bitchy!ginny!
Thank you! Bitchy Ginny can be such fun to write. ;D
