Apologies for taking so long to review this story, but thanks for the entry! Brilliant idea, I especially loved the twist with Fred and George at the end - very believable and you characterised them well. I haven't read a lot of Draco/Ginny but I imagine it's quite similar to the dreaded Dramione. At any rate, you did an excellent job of parodying it. Burning hair. I died. Great work!Author's Response: no worries :) I'm just sorry I didn't respond sooner! Thank you so much for this :) Honestly I haven't read too much of the ship either, its just always struck me as unrealistic and I'm not quite sure why. anyhow, thanks again for the lovely review :D

Great ending :) Okay, I don't think Draco/Ginny is a bad pairing, as I'm quite fond of it, though I do prefer Dramione...but this parody was hilarious! (Sorry, Draco, but I laughed...alot...)
The spy roll thing...ohmygosh I love parodies!!! You are so clever to come up with this! Can't write many parodies myself...Author's Response: Haha, thanks :D I honestly have nothing against the pairing but I think allot of times it can be driven to the ground with cliche's, still, many stories write it really well :)
I'm glad you liked it and thanks for the review :) Report Review
This was hilarious. I was laughing most of the time. Your completely out of character portrayal of Malfoy is just ridiculously amazing, and I can appreciate that because it clearly wasn't meant to be taken seriously. I'll admit I've enjoyed this couple (in all seriousness) but I do enjoy some well written humor so props to you for making this work.
I was surprised-but still loved-how it turned out to be a prank by the twins, that they would do this to their own sister is comical. Clearly, she must have ticked them off somehow for them to do this to her. You'd think they'd never want Malfoy anywhere near her. I would have loved to seen Harry and Ron's expressions though to seeing Draco and Ginny make out, that would have just made this all the more hilarious.
Even though you might think it's rubbish, I think you did a good job on this.
xxEnigmaticEyes16Author's Response: Thank you :D To be honest I think this whole story was the product of massive amounts of sleep-deprevity. Still I'm glad you liked it :) The review made my day, and that Harry/Ron reaction does sound rather hilarious, I'm sort of tempted to add it.
Anyway, thanks again!

Hey! Sorry for the lateness in the review -- I don't have much of an excuse, but as soon as I agreed to the review battle I found out that iTunes was streaming a Paul McCartney concert live, and I'm a MASSIVE fan of the Beatles (as a band and in their solo careers). So, yeah. Really sorry about that!
I clicked on this, not going to lie, because I started a Draco/Ginny novella about two and a half years ago, but I've never really read anyone else's take on them. And I actually really enjoyed yours -- especially the twist at the end! I thought that was rather perfect, actually, and rather more realistic than just having them as a couple. Even though I wrote them before, it's a bit of an odd ship to me, too. :P
I really enjoyed the humor in this, too -- the bit about Draco being covered in Pygmy Puffs, that was a great image! :) I think my favorite thing was the bit about Ginny attacking Draco's face with her mouth. :D I loved that, it got me giggling for a while. And the royally/royalty quip from the twins at the end -- loved that!
Just a few things I saw --
Look, the girls got eyes for Potty ("girls" should change to "girl's")
telling me to meet her on the astronamy tower ('astronamy tower' should change to 'Astronomy Tower')
Great work here! I think you pulled this off very nice, and again, loved that surprise ending. :P Thanks for swapping with me!Author's Response: Pshh, seeing as my review was later you don't need to worry at all. Besides, the Beatles are the most worthy excuse out there! (as are any of the band members) I'm sort of a massive fan myself... That masterpiece theatre on Lennon was just amazing! Anyway, I'm sidetracked now, ignore me.
Anyway, thanks so much for swapping! And thanks for catching those slip-ups, I'll edit those ASAP :)
Thanks again :D

I have the same opinion about Draco/Ginny, it just doesn't make sense! This was really funny, I was laughing the whole time! Great job :) I love parodies, and this was really brilliant.Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it XD I'm not sure what was going on in my head when I wrote this... actually part of me is pretty sure I wrote this while asleep or something... haha, still, thanks so much for the review :D Report Review
