This has got to be the best, twisted, dramatic, Draco/Ginny fic ever. I am honestly obsessed.
The dynamics you have going on are just so high school drama cruel, and in the best way possible.
The plot twists and turns, making the reader want to turn away from the screen in shame for Ginny, but also making the reader keep going because it is just so riveting and addictive.
Like a really good bit of gossip, that's what this fic is.
Honestly though, your writing talent just shines with this fic. The way you adapted the Harry Potter world to fit the general events of Hana Yori Dango is seamless, the AU world making perfect sense and not like a poorly constructed universe to fit that of the author's intent (as some AU fics I've read have seemed).
The way you incorporate JK's characters into this world is amazing, and I keep marveling at how canon they are in a definitly not canon world. Hermione, for example, keeps impressing me. She's my favourite to read about within this story, the references to her arguing with Ron and the small bit of romance there keeps the reader grounded to the canon-world in this AU. Ron's glasses-wearing friend and Sirius teasing Ginny about his godson were also great canon links to Harry... it makes me sad seeing how different his life would be without a prophesy - he'd be unremarkable, unimportant, and ultimately I suppose, he'd be happy.
Okay, I'm losing track of my purpose in writing this review. I think I'm just rambling right now... I'm trying to make a review worthy of the just sheer awesomeness of this story, but I don't think I can. It's just too good.
Know that I'll be back for future updates! This is just so amazing..
Oh, and I'm sorry that my review is more gushing than giving actual opinion on various aspects and expanding. My reviews are typically a bit better at that, but right now, my mind is reeling at the bomb you dropped within this chapter and I'm more than a little upset at this beeing the last chapter you've got up.
Keep writing! Please god I'm begging you! :P
PS. There was a canon mistake in an earlier chapter that I wasn't sure was intentional or not. Ginny, while confessing her traumatic Dark Mark memory to Draco in the closet, called Charlie her oldest brother. At first, I thought you'd killed off Bill or something - but then you mentioned that there were in fact seven Weasleys (they only found six, so they were looking for Ginny, the seventh). The order in age is Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred&George, Ron, Ginny. Sooo... yeah. Just a tiny little canon mistake that I'm nitpicking. ^_^
PPS. 10/10 and on my favourites list :)
