Big Bang Endgame propaganda  
cynicalpirate and I wrote for this; the fic is here. Sorry, I couldn't seem to locate a code for the pretty banner!

I know this belongs in my fic journal, but as a great man once said ... Just in case.

(Not that he wasn't wrong about lots of things, but whatevs.)

I just finished reading that! I'll leave proper feedback on the site when I've recovered but I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed it. It's an excellent story of which you and cynicalpirate can be very proud.

I meant to put up a message saying that you don't need to acknowledge this, or something.

I mean, it'll be there till the internet dies, right? ♥

Aargh. Dammit. I tried to leave feedback at the end but I'm not sure if it worked; if not, here it is.

Love the plot, it was rich and moving and just the kind of pace I like to read. Sex was gnnh hot, and how it came about is one of my bullet proof kinks, so I've been pretty much a puddle of lusty goo ever since I read it.

Didn't expect the ending. Still loved it. :)

You're one of the few! It seems to be generating a little controversy ... eh, well.

Right. Every time I'm about to fall out of the HP fandom you arrive bearing fic and *poof* I'm back. I'm not sure if I hate you or love you for that. *grin*

Have just read fic. Definitely love.

Have just started the fic. Gyah, so good! I mean, I've barely gotten 1000 words in, but I like what I see so far.

Hot damn. You do realize that after finishing that fic I think you and cynicalpirate are the Evil to End All Evils? Well, okay, maybe not really, but uh *whimpers* IT HIT RIGHT THERE, you know?

Of course, I shouldn't have been reading fic AT ALL tonight because I have to catch a plane flight at 6-fricking-thirty in the morning and, alas, I have squandered my time reading fic and will get no sleep.

I left a rushed short review (okay, it was longer than the others, but it was shorter than mine usually are and why does this sentence make me think of dirty things?) on the site. I think it came across as far more negative than I meant it to be but I didn't have time to read through again and take note of all the things I thought worked particularly well so I tried to condense my first impressions into like TWO SENTENCES and totally failed. I think I ended up whining a lot about how I was upset that it wasn't as fluffy (or cracktastic) as I like things to be. Of course, that whining probably also happened because I woke up at 6 am and it's now 2 am and I exercised for five hours earlier today and feel. so. dead.

Of course, after reading that fic I feel the need for some fluffy, cracktastic mpreg veela!rentboy!Draco or something.

... nevermind. please try to forget i actually said that. i'm sure any fic like that would cause me to have to scour my brain out with one of those wire scrubby things everyone has in their sink but no one really uses at all.

So, yeah, on that note, I'm going to go pack my stupid bags and find something to do so I won't fall asleep and miss my flight.

I wonder what people would have thought if the ending wasn't the way it was -- would there be this controversy? Meh.

I've decided I never was that happy with it. I really like my springsmut, though, so if that gets this kind of reponse generally, well ... I'm never writing again.

I just read it and was absolutely blown away. I saw a lot of diction that was just so you and they made me smiled because you have this beautiful wit that makes even the most grim or banal of things amazing. This was beautiful and I have a slightly more eloquent review there, but felt you should know here as well. ♥

Oh, most faithful of fans, I hope good things happen to you because of this! I truly do.

I just finished reading this story this afternoon and wanted to say what a breath of fresh air it was. There was so much exuberance and humor in places where I didn't expect it, and I felt just utterly charmed by the overall effect. I guess there is some controversy about the ending, but it didn't bother me at all. It was pretty clear that due to Harry's feelings for Ginny, he and Draco weren't exactly going to have a rosy future, so for me it worked. Anyway, your writing style was captivating and you really made me care about the canon characters and OCs as well! Great contribution.

Your review was a breath of fresh air! It was just what I needed to hear right now. Thank you so much.

Wow, your story has so many good details that it's hard to know where to start. As everyone else said, the sex was described really well - you know, lots of detail but leaving something to the imagination, too. The whole feel of the story seems like something that JK might have written (not the H/D thing, obviously, just the general tone of the story and the way the characters are shaped). Plus the nods to different books that you throw in there are a great touch ("a Malfoy always pays his debts" one, especially).
As someone above pointed out, I can see why Harry had to die, since it's pretty hard to envision any type of future he would have had with Draco, among other things. I felt kinda cheated since we didn't get to see the actual battle...the cut between the gathering storm and the jump to ten years later was a little abrupt, maybe. But that's my only complaint.

Sorry this is kinda lengthly, and late for that matter...anyway, I really enjoyed it!

Wow! I'm terribly flattered that you liked it, because you don't seem to read all that much fanfic. Ha, I'm delighted someone got the ASOIAF reference!

Yes, well, I was desperate to finish it, which might account for that. ♥ Thank you so much for the feedback!

I read it, I read it, I read it, I read it!! *dances around with the rabid tea pots* Oh your amazing-ness knows no bounds and it was so fantastic and perfect and so utterly scoradh even though I know you co-authored it, which made it even more so brilliant. Ahhh...*goes off to read Clear as Mud for the umpteenth time*.
