Yes!! Hahah that was brilliant. Harry and Ginny set out to pair up Ron and Hermione, but instead it looks as if Ron and Hermione were planning to pair them up all along! Excellent story

Really sweet.

Nice and . . . I dont know, but I sure did enjoyed it. Brilliant idea, to make Harry use the no-boys-allowed alarm system to get Ginny down.

Brilliant, brilliant, and. . . . . . . . BRILLIANT

What a great tale of love between Harry and Ginny. I really enjoyed reading this. It was fun to see how you would have them slowly coming together and getting closer. Ginny is probably the only girl he could truly open up to like that. Your writing is very realistic in character and dialogue. The best part was the kiss at the end, what fun!

Oh wow, what a twist! That was perfect!! Very enjoyable. I loved the beginning; harry's discomfort outside the shop and Ginny's teasing (and the pink and white bag...funny funny). This was definately worth the read!!

Well...first the bad...unless the Ron and Hermione fight was a set-up then you missed something key in OotP...they've cooled the bickering down...and Ron no longer goes after S.P.E.W. and Hermione no longer taunts him about Krum. After the kiss and the perfume...the two no longer go after the jugular like that.

Now the good...granted...I was leary of reading anything else by you after seeing what you've done in Adaptations...but I think that you handled both Harry and Ginny's character marvelously in this one. You didn't have Ginny leading poor clueless Harry around by the nose and you didn't have Harry and absolute fumbling moron like many like to portray. You didn't make Ginny into this in your face sex-kitten and you didn't make Harry a complete and total moody prat. In essense it seems you took what JK gave us and extrapolated to where they would be a few months later. I love good characterization and in this story at least you have it.

The events in the story were humorous and believable with Ginny shopping in the Lingerie store, nailing Malfoy and his goons, the two just talking and being silly together, the pouring of souls at the Shrieking Shack, the way they both didn't want things to end. Just wonderfully well done.

I have to admit after Adaptations I had vowed I would never read another story by you...but I'm glad I relented...I'll never read Adaptations...I just think you are going places there that the characters would never go and have seriously missed the characterization...but I will be open to giving future stories by you a chance based on this one and Fairy Tale Ending.

What a lovely twist!  That was so great I never would have thought for this story you would have made Hermione and Ron get Harry and Ginny together.  I it was just enought fluff to not make me puke.....actually no amount of fluff could make me puke.  Anyway...I'm going to go see if you wrote anyother stories...keep up the brilliant writing!

You know, I do feel something, but I think it's just the asparragas yogurt I had for breakfast.

Awesome story. I love how Ginny and Harry got together instead of the intended Ron and Hermione. But somehow, I'm thinking that it was a trick to get Harry with Ginny. Hermione and Ron were together all along. That's too funny, cute, and conniving. Lovely! Brilliant!

I kinda think the same thing.  Hermione's idea and Ron's plan maybe?

Great story,

Nice twist at the end! It's good to read something by you, since we've been denied Chapter 18 of Adaptations for some time now, one of my all time favorite stories... And one I might add that I was afraid had been abandoned since the anouncement of Half Blood Prince, as has happened with other fics in the past when a new book is announced. So I was quite pleased to read your response to an earlier review that it is on it's way!

Anyways, a quite clever story, and I loved the end where Harry stepped on the stairway for the girls dormitory to get Ginny to slide back down to him, just like Harry to pull something out of his hat at the last second, to save the day...

I'm working on 18, I promise.  I fully intend to have Adaptations completed before July.  Glad you liked this little bunny too.

Very cute ending.  I loved Harry triggering the slide and Ron and Hermione's high five.  I actually, sorta, saw that one coming, but I enjoyed it anyway.

There is a follow one to this one, it's called 'First Times' and it is DEFINITELY not suitable for PS.  Whoo-hoo!  It might be even too hot for me to type!

I'm glad you like the twist.  I thought it added a nice way to top off the story, like whipped cream on a sundae.  BJH
