OK, I'll admit that I didn't read this when it was posted because I'm a Harry/Ginny girl through and through, and never really cared for Cho, but when I saw that you were the author, I read it, and I'm glad I did, because it was incredibly well done, and you managed to make me like Cho, and give me a Harry/Ginny ending.

Fantastic job, and the Ghost Marriage concept is fascinating.

Thank you very much! That's a lovely compliment, especially coming from a hardcore H/G shipper. Glad you enjoyed it.

I just wanted you to know that I started reading this story this morning, and wished I hadn't had to stop to go to work. I really, really love it so far. I feel like I'm right there on the Pacific Coast (I used to live in the South Bay, and love the Santa Cruz area, San Francisco...), the descriptions are so vivid, and Harry's pain so acute. I hope to finish it soon, but the headache's back and I'm dyin' here.

Just... I can't wait to get to the NC-17 part. ;)

Wow, thank you! I lived in the Bay Area for seven years, so it's a really special place for me. It was fun revisiting it in fiction.

I'm so sorry about your headache. That sounds horrible.

I just finished, and... fan-freakin'-tastic. I don't know what else to say. Beautifully done.

Oh, wow, that's so kind! Thank you so much for reading it -- HP's not even your fandom!

Is your headache all better?

It's not my fandom, true, but I enjoy the books and the movies, am familiar with the characters; I just haven't read them enough times to memorize the little details. Unlike other, er, fandoms. *looks away embarrassedly*

Plus, I like your writing :)

*wishes desperately that HP was your fandom*

I love your writing, too. Even though I have no flipping clue who those people are.

That slash story you wrote STILL defines hotness for me -- and it was so beautiful and heart-wrenching, too. GUH...

Aw, thank you! I surprise even myself when re-reading that story. It's got men! And it's hot! ;)

It's really pretty easy to get who those people are--just watch the first movie, maybe the second (I'm not crazy about the second)... :) )

Oh, and if you know anything at all about Pride & Prejudice, well... that helps too. Mark = Mr Darcy, Daniel = Wickham, Bridget = Lizzy. Sort of.

Oh, yes, BTW--head is feeling much better. I'm still getting used to new glasses + tension headache from stress.

Bad tension! Go away. *gives you neck massage*

Thanks. Is bad sign to have knots in neck at 7:50 in the morning.
