No! A cliffhanger! How could you? Good chapter, anyways. But two things:
1) wasna't this supposed to be a one shot and
2) who said the last part, ginny or harry?
Thanks for a great chapter, update soon!

Author's Response: er yeah it was supposed to be a one shot but i changed my mind...i will change it.. and also, the ending, you arer not supposed to know who said it!! it is a surprise for the next chapter...but it isn't that exciting really... anyway, thanks so much for reviewing!!!!:D

Again, you need to slow down. Everything involved in this chapter should rightly have been in about three.


Author's Response: thank you..i have changed the summary so far... maybe it is better now?? xxx

Review #8, by dumbledorefluertwins The Engagement

24th March 2008:
Okay, this is a good start, but for now I'm just going to offer some advice and constructive crit, okay? Please don't be offended or anything, I'm just trying to help...

1) You would probably get more people to read this story if you gave a proper summary. You must think of the summary like the blurb on the back of a book. When you pick up a book in a shop, you don't read it without reading the back, do you? It's the same with stories on here. Your story summary is a place to advertise your story, and intrigue people into reading, not a place to beg for readers. I mainly clicked on this to tell you that, actually, but I read your fic too. ;)

2) You need to show a story, not tell it. At the moment, your story is very, they did this, and then they did that, and after that they did soemthing else. You need to show detail and description and feeling.

3) I thought Harry's proposal was distinctly un-romantic. The most romantic thing that happened was that he put some wine and candles on the table, and my Dad does that every sunday. I would have thought Harry would be much more nervous, and would have pulled out all the stops to make it as special as possible for Ginny. I mean, a proposal after some pie and a bit of wine? Harry would probably have made the dinner himself, and would have made something a bit more up market than pie.

3) The reactions of the Weasley's finding out where over and done with very quicl, I felt like you could have dragged that out a bit more.

For a first fic, your grammar is really actually very good. I was pleasently surprised, as there are many experianced authors on this site who still can't grasp that names need to be capitalized. However, whenever a new character speak you must skip a line.
I was rather pleased with your charcaterization, apart from the bit with Harry I talked about earlier.

Finally, I leave you with the thought that when writing a story, you must do so for yourself, as if no one else is going to read it. You must not write it on the sole pretence of getting lots of readers and reviews, you must write it to make you feel proud of it. I advise getting a beta (go onto mugglenet fanfic forums for the best ones, IMHO) and spending more time on each chapter.

I'll go and read your second chapter now, and offer advice, if nessecary, on that.


Author's Response: thank you very much!!! i will look over it and change some stuff.. :P

Your summery really caught my eye, and I was only too happy to oblige, and I'm glad I did, as this was so cute! Really, very well done.

I love the way you did Harry's proposal, and you portrayed the characters very well. I hope you continue this soon!

I would really love it if you read my story, but no pressure. Only if you have the time.


Author's Response: thank you!! i will read your story now :P

This was a cute one-shot. V. cute and fluffy. I think you have great potential.

One thing though, you said : when Harry appeared in the front door.

Shouldn't it be when Harry appeared AT the front door?

Keep it up. ;) 8.5/10


P.S- I totally agree with your pename x)

P.P.S- When you have a spare moment, do you think you could give my stories a go? I'd really apreciate it. :)

Author's Response: thank you!! i will change it soon.. of course i will read yours!! xxx

I loved it, but you might want to look it over. there are a few spelling errors and a few areas where it is supposed to start a new paragraph! Other than that it was really good. Please write more?!

Author's Response: thank you!! i will check it and get it revalidated soon..(if that is a word!!?)

Review #19, by M. R. The Engagement

22nd February 2008:
I thought it was too short for the first chapter. You should of had Harry get down on one knee. Also the reaction of everyone finding out about them being enganged was not that thringling.

Author's Response: yeah sorry i know its not great but it is my first one!!! thanx for reviewing anyway!!!
