A long-time addict of X-Files fanfiction, I got hooked on Harry Potter stories by reading the books to my kids. I'm not old, but I'm definately not young. I devour books, movies and select television programs and obsess on the might-have-beens leaking from my favorite's plots. You could say that I have a surplus of imagination looking for an outlet.

Curiosity gets the better of eighteen-year-old Ginny as she tries to prove a point to her older brothers and disappears in Knockturn Alley. After a stunning spell the young Weasley finds herself suffering from the horrors of being a Prisoner of War. While Harry refuses to believe that she may be dead, Ginny turns to an unlikely source of help at Malfoy Manor. (Rated R for a reason.)

Although allusion is made regarding the horrifying treatment toward female prisoners of war, this story does not contain explicit descriptions of sexual mistreatment.

I think Ginny should rip out all the pages and make paper airlplanes. Nicely done. I'm off to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Ha, I love that and paper airplanes would stop the boredom

Nice little cliffhanger you've got there. I'm still trying to decide about Draco's character. Hmmm.. I hope you update soon! Good job :)

Author's Response: Ah Draco, well we'll see, but he has the odd few twists with his character.

Interesting ending. I was expecting something different after the last chapter. Are you going to continue? Seems like you still have alot to say.

Author's Response: As a reader, I like things left up to my imagination, so its not a closed case. So that is something I try to do with my writing, give hints but in the end let the reader draw their own conclusion on whether they reach for lack of a better phrase, the 'happily ever after'.

I think that reading this is more fun now, after I've read HBP, than it would have been before. I like the 'vomit-green t-shirt' - what an image! I also liked the counting at the end. Good story! I'm off to read the next 25 chapters!

All right, I'm hooked. Since I leave for a two week road-trip tommorrow, I've printed out the rest of the chapters. I'll give you reviews when I get back.

What happened between Harry and Ginny during that lakeside stroll after their first kiss? Perhaps they talked of more than just quidditch...One-Shot

You did a good job :) The dialogue moves nicely and you've written good imagery. I think you should continue writting.
