Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Vld
Well, I don't know about anybody else, but I myself would like to see Ginny falling in love with someone else, maybe Dawn or Buffy (kinda partial to these pairings... well, either these, or one of the sisters with Hermione as well, but I don't see that coming anytime soon. Actually, I would LOVE to see the Golden Trio before the end. And all for different reasons. Harry, to see him pull an Oz (I mean coming back after "running away" from Ginny, and kinda lose it at first --I hope they don't get back together on this one. A couple of months of abandonment, okay, but two years is pushing it a little too far.--) Ron, to see how upset he can be at her sister for hurting Harry like that (even though it was Harry who hurt her first, and put a stop to it), and Hermione because she IS the voice of reason among them.
As for who I would like to see in the DA? Well, pretty much all of them. Especially Luna, and Natalie McDougal, I think she was called... and Romilda Vane (I keep trying to figure why she was put into Gryffindor, and well... so far, I have yet to find an answer) and (hopefully) some reformed Slytherins? Namely Draco, Pansy and Blaise. Okay, maybe not official DA, but I would think... and hope that they got more guts and were more inkling towards being proactive, as Gin put it.
And well... a nice love story for Luna or Pansy, maybe even Draco... why not?

What a wonderful review -- thank you!!!!!
Dawn and Buffy will definately be involved and I do have a certain preference for how Dawn will integrate into the story. I will admit to being partial to a specific crossover romance in that department. However, I haven't nailed down Buffy's role as of yet.
The trio will definately be involved, I just keep wavering about the timing of their return to Ginny's life and the introduction of the slayer world. Hermione will be back before the boys regardless.
Finally, I absolutely adore the comparison to Oz....along with feeling like an idiot for not thinking of it myself. I wasn't planning on Oz being in the story but now I wonder if that would add some fun!
Luna will play a big part because I am assuming that she is Ginny's confidante and closest friend. The only thing I can remember about Romilda is the love spell gone awry....I might have to reread some HP! Thank you again!!!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ScoobyAngel
First off I really love the way you have started this fan fic and I look forward to reading more. I love it so far.
To answer your questions at the end of the first chapter:
I think that Ginny would soon run into one or all of the Golden Trio since she plans on fighting no matter what...and to me it would add depth to see how she reacted to Harry after finding some one else she could love. AS for the slayers/wiccans.....the amulet would, to me, react in the presence of slayers and possibly the Wiccan women of the group as it seems that is what the magic was created for. So it would be hard for her not to learn of slayers sooner rather than later. ::grins:: It could also have an adverse reaction to those that are deemed as "monsters" , something to warn the wearer that evil is near by. Also I think that slayers would be able to sense magic users as well. As for the other DA members in Ginny's year I can only think of Colin Creevy. :grins:: but the names Christy, Devin, and Heather are nice. LOL.
I hope that this helps and I will not be offend if you don't use any of my ideas. Keep writing!!!

Thank you SO much -- your encouragement is golden. Your comments are all very much in line with what has been swirling in my head. I love the idea of playing with the definition of monsters and protection as well.
This story idea along with the first chapter came to me all in one insomniac evening and it feels good to know someone else appreciates where it is headed!
Colin is a candidate -- I love using background characters. You have complete permission to email me directly and let me know the stories behind Christy, Devin and Heather. ;-)
