wow!
I kept getting big huge pangs in my heart and at one stage I thought I was literally going to burst out crying...but I kept myself together.
The summary really got me interested in reading this fic, because I really didn't have a clue what it was going to be about and I needed to know.
Some of the dialogue that Harry says doesn't seem Harry-ish its a bit too wisely, its more like a Dumbledore-ish thing to say. Along with some of the stuff Ginny says, it's too grown up for her and because of that they seemed a bit 'out of character'
but it was a nice read, really liked it. =]
7/10

Author's Response: Yes...I nearly made you cry...exactly the effect I was after.

Thanks for the feedback...I love getting them...although I thought for several days it was about another story I wrote and then I just happened to glance at the chapter it was referring to...good thing I saw that before I responded or this could be a rather random comment...anyway, carrying on

Harry is actually a figment of Ginny's imagination...he's not really there...so basically anything that Harry says is really Ginny's subconcious trying to protect and heal her. But say it was Harry's ghost or whatever, he's dead and as I see it, would be profoundly more knowledgeable than when he was alive.

Which runs into the second point. I agree that the thoughts are grown up, but at the same time, she has just fought in the war, lost the guy of her dreams, her brother and many friends. She was already a strong willed and mature character, being the youngest of such a large family. The war would only make her grow up more. There would have been plenty of lonely, sleepless nights of crying between the end of the war and this story for her to contemplate her thoughts and feeling and also talk to other which would all lead to a more grown up opinion on the whole situation.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.
