Hi, Arabella!
I've read almost all your fics and I gotta tell you, you're incredibly talented! your character are always IC and, well, your fics are both emotional and funny at the same time, so, kudos [;
Anyways, I was wondering if you would please authorize me to translate this fic ("Awakenings") and "Dare" to Hebrew, so that my friends could enjoy 'em as well!

please send your response to this E-mail address: and hopefully we'll talk busisness :P

Cheers, Ronnie.

um, ok, i'm afraid that ending may have been the best thing to ever happen to the world.
'For suddenly, though the thought surprised him utterly, he wasn't entirely sure that he would stay away from Ginny Weasley after all. '
Gorgeous. I would love a there a sequel???

i liked this story! it was good, and i giggled a lot. nice work-i really like your stuff.

Reviewer: ArchieDate: 2006-05-02
Reviewid: 142471Chapter: 1
I liked how its's all done from Harry's perspective, it's overheard but still kept sercret. Also liked how Ginny sort of silently bosses Harry into going up to the dormitory and how it foreshadows Harry & Ginny. You also sort of get the sense that Ron's started to notice Harry's looking a Ginny.

Clever stuff.

oh, and i just have to add, my favorite part:

"Oy, shut up, you," he retorted, throwing a pillow at
Harry, who caught it easily and threw it back at Ron, who let it
knock him backwards and cover his face. He lay there a moment and
then in a muffled voice, Harry heard, "You know, Harry, you ought
to give it a try. It's brilliant."

Harry smirked. "What?" he said, "Kissing Hermione?"

haha, brilliant wit! just perfect! I can actually picture the whole scene happening, you did it so well. --Ron lying there with the pillow on his face, just enthralled. haha, absolutely brilliant!

This story is great! It made me laugh, and gasp, and you really kept the dialogue in character. Great work! write more, pleaaassee! i already read Zsenya's sequel to this and it was great as well, but i need more!! i have to say, you two have got me hooked, and this is only the first week i've been a fanfic reader! sheesh, yeah, you're that good!

Don't stop writing, you guys are inspiring!

Reviewid: 136045Chapter: 1
I really love this story. You really show the characters how they are in canon. Ron so bewildered, Hermione so knowledgeable yet anxious and Harry so curious and loyal. Good job. I'm hoping you decide to do some sort of a follow=up to this involving Harry's decision to ignore Ron's "warning". Love it!

If you like a bit more of Harry than J.K. rowling is willing to offer then this story is indeed a classic example.It features a cute, small and quiet romance between Ron and Hermione. Indeed it's well written, with great description, and could easily pass for Mrs Rowling's own work.

A very big well done to the author! Awesome work!

Best one I've read! Loved it! R/H stuff was the best to be imagined.

"Harry took off his glasses and shut his eyes, feeling a bit apprehensive of Ron. For suddenly, though the thought surprised him utterly, he wasn't entirely sure that he would stay away from Ginny Weasley after all."

Awesome! Great job.

I just thought I'd let you know, that you have officially converted me to Ginny/Harry. A crime well done, as before I had read your work, found it disgusting, and now can't get it out of my head! This was brilliant... great work!

Reviewer: Thorn of BoodDate: 2005-04-17
Reviewid: 119797Chapter: 1
Nice, I have to say I ejoyed it the only thing I have a problem with is Ron's dislike of the idea of Harry and Ginny, I OotP it was made pretty clear that he approves of it.

Reviewer: HiddenFlame42Date: 2005-04-03
Reviewid: 118559Chapter: 1
If I'd have been Harry in that situation, I'd have had to be chewing on my fist to keeep from laughing my head of at them. ROFL Love it!! It's so going to happen like this in the books I figure, because we never get to see hardly anything unless Harry's watching and Ron and Hermione will NEVER stop fighting. LOL - great fic!! *applause*

this story is one of the best ron/hermione fanfictions i have read in my life! it is incredibly creative and Arabella is an imaginative and fantastic writer in my opinion. and i think it would be great to keep adding chapters to this story. Great job Arabella, i love your work so keep it up.

Very well done. The pace, dialogue, and even suspence all falls into place. A sweet rendition of the first kiss. This is certainly more believable than many other "first kiss" stories I've read. Kudos and keep writing.

Reviewer: MichelleDate: 2004-08-14
Reviewid: 97327Chapter: 1
I really enjoyed this short little fic. I picture something similar to this happening in the next two books to Ron and Hermione, you know, fight, fight, fight, then boom- finally they give in. But not without one last enormous fight. hehe. Nicely done!

Reviewer: Geena WatersDate: 2004-08-12
Reviewid: 96752Chapter: 1
This is the second time I've read this story. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that Ron wants Harry to stay away from Ginny. In the books I always got the impression that Ron wanted Harry to date Ginny, that Harry was the only one who was good enough for her. But that's just my observation and opinion and I know it's not for everyone! :D


Reviewer: KelliDate: 2004-08-02

Reviewer: Marlo BorelliDate: 2004-07-31
Reviewid: 95022Chapter: 1
Wow...I loved it!!! Absolutely brilliant, very serious, very funny, very sweet! I love Ron's fear of what he's gotten himself into after kissing Hermione, and how Harry's suddenly having other thoughts about Ginny. I personally hate Cho, and I think that Harry and Ginny would make such a cute couple, as I do Hermione and Ron! After reading "Chamber of Secrets," I too feel that Harry and Ginny have some special connection, and I hope that, in another one of your stories, you'll indulge it. Well, once again, loved it and keep up the great work -- the Internet is a better place because of you!!

Reviewer: readerDate: 2004-07-31

With the way Ron was telling Harry about kissing Hermione made the trio seem rather juvenile. When exactly is the story supposed to take place?

i will say that this story is one of the best stories i have ever read. the cool thing is that it seems like a situation like that is so likely to happen, this story was AWESOME!!! email me and we can talk about it, haha.

Ginny didn't face Voldemort alone, the only reason she survived was because Harry came and rescued the stupid girl. I found Ginny very annoying in this story. But it fits her character because she is very annoying in all of the books. Good job.

Wow that's so beautiful! My favorite slashes! I love Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny. The scene with Ron and Hermione was so perfect too, especially for the Order of the Phoenix. Your writing is so great; I wish that I could write that well. I'm already addicted to reading your fanfiction!
Thanks so much! I wouldn't suppose... there would be a sequal? ::Looks hopeful and thinks dreamily about Harry/Ginny:: =) LOL well whether you do a sequal or not, this was great!

Reviewid: 71430Chapter: 1
Eeeeheeheeeee!!!! Loved it!!! Sigh, that was one of the best fights and the best kisses I've ever read. Everything you did was perfect- Ron's impatience, the way they said each others' names in surprised laughter, the way Hermione ran out afterwards. It was perfect!!! And Harry- that was just icing on the cake, him thinking about Ginny. Sigh. Thanks so much for this wonderful bit of fluff.

Reviewer: DonDate: 2003-12-09
Reviewid: 62683Chapter: 1
Wonderful! This is one of my favorite stories. I've read it many times and I just realized that I have never reviewed it.

I think you do a good job of portraying Harry and Ron afterwards. Self-conscious and careful of each other's feelings. Just great.

The details are great like this:
>>Ron looked at him quickly, and grinned back before he could help it. "Oy, shut up, you," he retorted, throwing a pillow at Harry, who caught it easily and threw it back at Ron, who let it knock him backwards and cover his face. <<
I can actually see Ron falling back in a happy daze.

Well done!

Reviewid: 46571Chapter: 1
Dear Author,
Your writing style is great. It's realistic, interesting but still carries that element of fluffy sweetness when it needs to. I am really opposed to R/H but this story was still wonderful. Your mentions of Harry's feelings towards Ginny were subtle yet you could definately see he liked her... especially with that last sentence. One tiny thing, I think Harry's a bit more respectful and kind then to continue spying on them once things got er... private. I hope this continues and I will be checking often.

He lay there a moment and then in a muffled voice, Harry heard, "You know, Harry, you ought to give it a try. It's brilliant."

Harry smirked. "What?" he said, "Kissing Hermione?"

god, arabella, i LOVE ur humor!
