Disclaimer: I do not own the Harry Potter book series, nor do I own the Hot Gimmick manga series. Harry Potter belongs to JK Rowling and Hot Gimmick belongs to Miki Aihara. Please do not sue me because I am poor and it wouldn't benefit you.
All right everyone, you know how this works...I write a story, then you review. When you review, please remember, if you'd like for me to reply to your review, please say so and give me your e-mail address, otherwise you will be given no recognition until I decide to post a chapter listing for all my reviewers.
I know I've got three fics already circulating, but I've got a couple ideas in my head that I'd like to go ahead and start on while I suffer writer's block for the other three. I have a beta now though! Yay! Her name is Kimberly Grace, but her pen name is AvId PiAnIsT, so let's all give her a round of applause!
Now, on with the introductory to this new fic. The idea is simple. The hit manga Hot Gimmick, rewritten Harry Potter style! Why? Well, because those are two of my most favorite series...ever!
You won't have to have read both series to get it, that' s what I'm here for! Now, this is how it's all going down, the 'first' chapter (the one you're reading now) is just going to be an overview/introductory to the whole idea and story. Just to get everyone up to date on what's going on.
I will write chapters after this one corresponding with the chapters in the manga, so this should run fairly quickly. You see, the whole Hot Gimmick series has yet to be released in the US, but I think it'll all come out soon, so I'll be able to write quickly and only have a slight pause while I wait for the next volumes. (Numbers 1-6 have been released already, and there are about 4 chapters per volume, so I think it'll all be fine while I wait for the next to be released.)
For those of you who have actually read Hot Gimmick, I'll let you know who is playing whom.
Hermione will play Hatsumi
Ginny will play Akane
Katie (Bell) will play Asahi
Draco will play Ryoki
Ron will play Azusa
Harry will play Subaru
Oliver (Wood) will play Shinogu
Pansy will play Yuka
Fleur will play Rika
McGonagall will play Mrs. Tachibana
Snape will play Mr. Narita
Sinistra will play Mrs. Narita
Katie and Oliver are seventh years for my convenience. Also, in this story, Ron is an only child. He and Ginny have no relation, whatsoever.
For those of you who have not read Hot Gimmick, then the roles of the Harry Potter characters will mean nothing to you. Just read as if you never saw the Japanese names. Also, if another person is brought in to play another Hot Gimmick character, then I will post it in my author note before that specific chapter. That means you should read my author notes!
Some of the people will have to be a little out of character, but I don't think it'll be that bad. I've got to compromise a few things to keep the story straight (such as doing partial shippings that I don't like).
By the way, to avoid interrupting the flow of the story with author's notes, I've decided to use a footnote system. Since asterisks don't show up, I'll use this -0- symbol. The explanations will be put in the author's notes at the end of the chapter.
All right, now that I've explained everything, I bet you want to know what this is all about, well, to satisfy you for now, here is the summary:When sixth year Hermione has to buy a pregnancy test for her popular friend, Ginny, because Ginny is 'late', she runs into her rival and enemy, Draco Malfoy! Now, he's blackmailing her to become his slave! How will mild-mannered Hermione get out of this mess? Will her long-time crush (and male model) Ron be able to save her from Draco's clutches?
