What about Xavier????

Really, I love the series, and hope you keep on with it.  How their relationship develops is just lovely, and it's niether too sappy nor too emotionless.  It's got that wonderful quality of roiling emotions below the surface, those great huge ones that you can onl feel.  And you get the reader to feel them.  And the sex is bloody hot.

So thank you, and best of luck with your writing.  You have a remarkable and beautiful gift!



Author's Response:

Eeek! Well, I was writing the Magic Immunity series by the time this came along, and I changed the plot arc so that Ron and Draco end up adopting Xavier. ;)

I'm thrilled that you've enjoyed the Cartography of Fire series; it is so near and dear to my heart, and I'm so gratified that you've enjoyed your time reading these stories. Thank you also for your very kind words about my writing! I do a lot of it. :blush:

Finnigan's Snake by Thevina Rated: RT - Restricted Themes [Reviews - 2]
Summary: Take one curmudgeonly Severus Snape, angry that the Order has sent an unwanted guest to 'help' him at his isolated potions lab, and add one untested, experimental potion, subsequently ingested by said Potions master. The result? Anything but the ordinary, of course. A fanciful, smutty story, not for those who suffer from ophidiophobia. ;)

Finnigan's wake?  You really didn't. (-:  So the rest was hot and disconcertingly believable (you have a habit of that), but that last part just made me laugh.  Finnigan's wake...

Magic Immunity by Thevina Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1]
Summary: Ron, who has become a healer post-War, gets an unexpected request from Draco, who managed to suffer a dark curse from a cousin while dueling over the Manor. Old enemies manage to become friends while discussing Quidditch and Ron recalibrating Draco's magic so it works for him, not against. Smut ensues, but with Ron's ethics keeping him in check. An eclectic mix of magical theory, new brooms, and Ron in shoddy Griffyndor boxers and dragonskin boots.

WOW... who would've thought that smelling would be such a turn-on?  And I love that Draco and Ron are still so faithful to canon, yet seem to fit together so well.  I never would have anticipated it, yet like it quite a lot!  Looking forward to the rest...

Author's Response: I'm so pleased that you find them both in character and canonically believable as well as being together. This was my second Ron/Draco, and it spawned a rather long story arc. You're such a gem to be reading them all at once! What a treat for me as an author. :)

Of Boots and Boxers by Thevina Rated: RT - Restricted Themes [Reviews - 1]
Summary: A generous 'anonymous' person gave me extra icon spaces for my LiveJournal, so I offered to write fic as a way to say thank you. The request? R/D smutlet. Set two days after the end of "Magic Immunity," the boys have a passionate romp after the Magpies match.

How a story can be so hot and yet delightfully funny I have no idea.  And my eyes are watering from not wanting to blink and disturb my reading.  Gottareadthenextone!!!

Author's Response: *g* So pleased that this worked for you. I'm just so thrilled that you're inhaling my stories and really enjoying yourself! :D

Summary: Finally, the third in the Ron/Draco "Magic Immunity" series. Ron and Draco have been handfasted and are settled into their life with Severus and Xavier. But when Xavier begins talking to an imaginary Harry, Ron finds himself overwhelmed by unresolved feelings for his former best friend and insecurities in his role as parent and partner. Ron/Draco, unrequited past Ron/Harry.

So the tears pricking my eyes are a compliment to the tale.  Perhaps what I'm finding most rewarding about this series, actually, is how you portray the complexities of maintaining a relationship, rather than just forming one.  Ron's insecurities and neediness seem to be present, to some extent, in all of us, and how the partner handles it makes a tremendous difference, though, as you show here, no particular response works for everyone.  Most of all, it's so vividly apparent how much they all love each other, through the disaggreements and the squabbles and, at times, the hurt.  The ache of gratitude is a rare thing indeed to see in a fic, and I'm impressed to see the depth and breadth of emotions you successfully convey.  I'm looking forward to reading more.  Thank you for a beautiful fic.

That hurt.  I'm waiting to see what happens next, but I'm a bit shocked that Ron's feeling of pain at losing Harry and need for Harry to show Ron that he loves him would be enough for Harry to hurt Ron, to remove the sacred token of their handfasting, and for Ron to not only feed, but rape and kill a human.  Given the apparent stability of their relationship, I could easily have seen Harry losing his temper, then dragging Ron home, tying him up, and telling him to get a grip.  But leaving him?  I'm holding out to see what happens next, but I'm a bit skeptical.  It was a shocking switch.

Well, I do like how Ron's dealing with things.  And Martin is truly awesome!  I'm really really looking forward to seeing how Ron's confrontation with Harry goes.  Where has the boy gone?  What's he thinking?  Well, gotta keep reading...

Reviewer: Aethonan Signed
Date: 04/22/2009 Title: Chapter 14: Epilogue

I am impressed that you push this tale beyond the easy ending.  Immortality is hard, and lonely, if those you love grow old and die.  I am surprised still by Harry's aloofness, his ability to detach even from Hermione and the Weasleys.  He seems so much colder, and it is nothing new that I would like so get a fuller sense of his struggles.  It seemed at times that Martin was the manifestation of the emotionality that Harry lacked. 

Still, I was fascinated by how Ron continued in his Wizarding life, how he and Harry were able to maintain their relationship even through such lasting absences.  I am impressed that you showed such devotion to your characters that you would follow them through the full journey.  I am glad that they are finally, truly, "unshackled and at last at peace."

Thank you for the beautiful tale.

So now there's this ridiculous tightness in my chest and tears in my eyes.  This just keeps getting better and better.  I am a bit surprised by Ron's hesitance to say anything back to Draco, as hiding what he's feeling doesn't seem like him.  I'm curious to see what happens next!!!

Author's Response: I'm very pleased that this story affected you emotionally. I think Ron was hesitant in his comment back to Draco because he's still struggling to be okay with it himself. He does get there; he's not really hiding it via his actions, but for as much as he knows he loves Draco, it's quite another thing to say the words aloud. I do hope you continue to enjoy the story arc and what they get up to!

Loved it!  I love how everyone sees it coming except Harry, and how stereotypical 'boy' he is at first, just ogling the woman.  And then... Draco.  *sigh*  You had me seriously lusting after that one -- your depiction is absolutely amazing.  The heat, the tension, the uncertainty and the desire... lust puddle!!!

Thanks for the wonderful romp!

I'm with Draco.  Why was Ron so bloody upset???  Sometimes he does just miss the obvious, doesn't he?  Draco's actually been going above and beyond his usual in demonstrating his affection (and I was totally enraptured by your depiction of his conversations with his cousin... she was awesome) while Ron is still fumbling.  His last line here, though, was perfect, and made me feel better.  "Nobody's asked me to stay for very long."  I get it.

Still, I feel like Ron could have been a bit more... emphatic, in his desire to keep Draco there.  Hmm... gotta read more...



Author's Response: Yes, Ron's still Ron and at this relatively early juncture in their relationship, he simply still has a knee-jerk reaction to some of Draco's comments. Draco really is trying, and Ron's still not as self-aware and self-expressive as he could be. Glad that the last line worked for you; he has some issues to work through. Ron definitely did want to stay with Draco, but sometimes his mouth/heart/brain combination doesn't fire in an ideal way to express that.

Very fun and different... although I found how quickly they jumped into bed together and were immediately comfortable with each other a bit implausible.  Perhaps expanded upon, with greater detail around the character progression, and you'd transform what is already a delightful story into a fabulous tale!

Thanks for writing!  It's a pleasure to read...
