Summary: All her life Ginny has tried to live up to the expectations set by those around her, and more importantly herself. When Harry breaks up with her Ginny thinks she realises what she must do to acheive this perfection but this soon turns into an obsession she can't escape.
Warning: The main focus of this Story is on the effects of an eating disorder, if you get easily upset by such issues I suggest you dont read.

I really like this story. Eating disorders are something I feel particularly strongly about and I think you are portraying it fairly well. I'm not sure Ginny Weasley would react this way to being dumped, but it's true some girls probably do.
Looking forward to your next chaper.
Author's Response: I have got a long explaination as to why I chose Ginny in one of the early reviews, whether you agree with me or not is a different matter, but I am glad I chose Ginny. Thank you for reading and reviewing. emma x xx
A great chapter.
Looking forward to the next one :)
Author's Response: Thanks. Chapter ten will be a while I\'m afraid. I have my exams starting in three weeks so I have to focus on them, obviously. I will get it written as soon as possible though.
200,000 Reasons You'll Find My Client 'Not Guilty' by FenrirG
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 10]
Summary: When Lucius Malfoy asked me to be his attorney, I had no choice but to accept. Actually… I suppose I did have a choice, seeing that it wouldn’t exactly have put Lucius in the best light if he’d threatened me while on trial, or anything like that. But the choice I had, frankly, came down to money. In fact, I find that a lot of choices come down to money in today’s legal system—not the least of which was the choice to let Mr Malfoy walk free.
A deceptively light, satirical story about a young lawyer who makes his big break to success during the trial of Lucius Malfoy--and learns an important lesson in the process.
I am FenrirG of Ravenclaw, writing for the August One-Shot Challenge: The Trial of Lucius Malfoy.
I really enjoyed this.
I thought that Kingsley wouldn't let the bribery thing slide, but it was still an interesting twist.
I got pretty excited when Harry walked in aswell.
Summary: Christmas had always been their holiday. Now, coming home a year after ruining it all, Teddy Lupin runs into Victoire Weasley. Can he make everything right? Or will he lose her all over again?
this is so cute. good job!
i loved it
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Andromeda Black had always been different, and that got worse when she was sorted into Ravenclaw. Shunned from her family, she leans on a boy named Ted Tonks for support. *ONESHOT*
I love Andromeda and I never see enough fan fiction about her.
I've always loved the smell of rain, too!
I really liked this :)
Author's Response: Thanks, I appreciate your R&R!
Summary: “But I don’t understand. Ginny told me that you and Hermione broke up by mutual agreement,” Luna said, confused.
“We did. And it’s not that I want to be with her again - it’s just...hard to explain.”
“Unless you’re with someone who is actually listening.”
When one love is lost, another is found.
Wow, didn't think I would enjoy a Ron/Luna fic, but I thought this was great.
Summary: “I love you.”
It had been three days since they’d been together. Three days ago, she had told him. Three days ago, he had left. And now, with only minutes left to them, they tried to express everything that they felt for one another, tried to say everything that they wished to say, before time ran out.
“Come back. Come back to me.”
Wow, I really loved this.
I hope you do post the chaptered fic, I look forward to it.
A pairing that I hadn't read and now love!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you very much, Cassie. I\'m glad you enjoyed this, and as more and more of the ideas for the chaptered fic become clearer in my head, it\'s becoming easier to plan - and in the end, write.
I hadn\'t read Sirius/Hermione either until around March, and just instantly fell in love with it. It\'s a great pairing, I think.
Summary: Andromeda dances when she thinks no one is watching. An encounter with her sister proves her wrong.
This is great. I love your characterisation of Andromeda and Bella.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: What happens when you choose the wrong path?

Suicide is only contemplated.

Congrats on getting this validated, I was looking out for in it the Most Recent, but never found it till now. A great story :D ~ Cassie/ms. leading(incase you were confused by the different screenname haha)
Author's Response: Thanks for the praise and thanks for being a great beta. I couldn't have done it without both of you!
Summary: After the Great Battle is over, Pansy Parkinson comes face-to-face with a bitter loss. But even when things seem to be at their worst, Pansy finds a kind spirit.
I thought it might have been Dudley, but this was excellent. An interesting pairing. Great job.
Author's Response: I thought it was an interesting pairing, too. Thanks!
Summary: For Sirius, Lily’s wedding is more of a funeral. A funeral for his dreams, that is.
A companion piece to For Him, though it can stand on its own.
This was really beautiful. It makes me wish this pairing could work! I loved it, great job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
Summary: Regulus has been given task that is by no means impossible. Over the course of a night, he attempts to kill his brother.

I really enjoyed this. Somehow, you've turned what I expected to be a fairly dark fic into something very entertaining.
The only mistake I picked up is in Scowling, I took another step towards him.
I believe took should be take in keeping the tense consistent.
Author's Response: Thanks. I tried to get across the deeper elements while still shoving in a bit of humour and action. And yeah, I ALWAYS switch tenses when writing in first.
Summary: The summer before Rose Weasley's seventh year is not an enjoyable one. Trapped amidst a family she's sure would prefer the boy she's turned down to the one she's given her heart to, the only comfort she finds is in the memories of the last, beautiful week of term, and the knowledge that when the holidays are over, she'll be back in his arms - that is, if he hasn't changed his mind during the summer.
This story is perfect. I found your characterisation of Scorpius to be interesting - in a good way. It was truly beautiful :)
Summary: “Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense.”
It started on a spring day in the library, when they both decided to act on emotions. It ended while watching a sunset in the backyard, when they both decided it was ‘for the best’. And it became fully understood on a stormy night, when they both decided that love wasn’t always logical.
Edit: Nominated for "Best Non-Canon Romance" in the 2008 QSQ Awards
Yay! Congratulations on getting it validated. This is probably my favourite Sirius/Hermione so far, but they've all been wonderful, of course. I love your writing, Megan. This story flows beautifully!
“I was –”
The words were cut off as Sirius captured her lips with his.
This makes me melt, haha.
Summary: Lily is engaged to James, but there's one person she can't forget, no matter how hard she tries. RL/LE, JP/LE.
I really enjoyed this. Very sweet. The way you presented Remus and Lily is unique, and your writing flows very well. Really great :) ~ Cassie
Author's Response: Thank you! =D
Summary: Love is whatever you make it to be. Albus Severus/Scorpius
“I’m fucked,” he announced after bidding a quick good-bye to Potter and dashing across the classroom to meet Simon halfway.
“Really? How’d he do it so discreetly?”
This made me laugh, really great.
I've never read a Scorpius/Al before, and I love it already. I'll read and review the other chapters shortly!
I adored this. You've really made this ship believable. I loved how Simon was so understanding and a really great best mate, he is the perfect character to be Neville's son. The best slash fic I've read in a while. ~ Cassie
Summary: Teddy is the king of the school, but he doesn't want the position. Only Victoire really listens to him.
Very sweet. The last line, especially, made me smile. A nice, short, and enjoyable piece.
Author's Response: Thank you. ^^
Viktor had never known, until she came along. Henceforth, every breath that escaped his lips were for her, and her alone.Could he face her, eye to eye? Even the greatest of wizards crumble to pieces when faced by the overpowering force of love, and he was no exception. The challenge was tougher than catching the Golden Snitch or stealing a Chinese Fireball's egg.
Will he succeed, or crumble into pieces like so many others?Winner of the "I Challenge Thee" contest held in the MNFF Beta Boards in September 2008.
Oh, I challenged this! I'm really glad you accepted the challenge, because you've written something really great. I quite like your portrayal of Krum, too. ~ Cassie
Author's Response: I am so glad I could live up to the challenge. It was a great one, and I enjoyed writing it. Thanks a lot for the review, as well as the challenge.
Summary: Perhaps Dolores Umbridge didn't just take Moody's eye and stick it on her door because she wanted to spy on her employees. Perhaps Dolores Umbridge wasn't just wearing Salazar's locket because she relished the feeling of power the Horcrux instilled in her. Perhaps there is more to this woman's story than what it might first appear to be.
This is a story of differences, similarities, and love -- a story that goes beyond what the eye can see.
Wow, I have no idea how you've made this pairing work so well. It's amazing. At first I was a little concerned about them both being placed in Slytherin, and I still disagree that they would have been. But honestly, you've made it so easy to look past that detail. I'm in awe of this story, and I can't wait for more.
Author's Response: Yes, it's certainly an unusual pairing, but I, for one, think it's a very fitting match! Glad you're liking it too. :) My beta also expressed some concerns about both of them being Slytherins (she wasn't sure if Moody had been), but I'm quite hooked on the idea, to be frank. Anyhow, thank you for the review, hope to see you again for the next chapter! :D
