Have I told you how amazing you are, yet? I don't think I have (enough). Because you're so amazing, haha.
Powerful last short line yay!! I love those. Obviously. Since I use them in like...everything.
But anyway, I really love this story. Even though it makes me sad that Ginny would feel that way and I'm always a fan of happy endings, this is just so much more realistic. She was excluded from a lot of his life and his worries because he wanted to protect her. They all wanted to protect her, but instead they isolated her.
I really hate to think that she married someone she didn't love. But I don't believe that's true. I think she did love Harry, and would continue to love him, but she just isn't as strong as everyone thinks she is. She doesn't have that confidence that everyone believes she does. She's just another self-conscious girl that is unsure of herself and her decisions and her family. And I think her idea that she can't be as good as Harry is really suffocating her love for him. She does love him, but the fact that she can't really look at herself without comparing herself to him makes her despise him.
Ahh, complicated story! It's lovely.
And I really did enjoy seeing another side to Molly. A lot of people think her outburst with Bellatrix and using a curse word was so out of place, but I think it really finished her character. And you did a wonderful job of showing that complete character.
This is an amazing, wonderful, sad, happy, confused story. And I'm honored that you chose to use my banner with it. ^^ And mentioned me in the Author's Note, haha.
Speaking of which, it's funny because the first time I read it, I thought you were telling me specifically to not hesitate to let you know how I felt. xD
Anywho, lovely lovely times a million.
Author's Response: Psssh, only about a billion times because, you know, I am that amazing (; Haha, just kidding. Thanks! You're pretty amazing yourself.
You know what's weird? I love happy endings as well, but whenever I write one shots I am incapable of giving them a happy ending o_O Seriously, I think I have problems...or maybe it's just that I think stories with sad endings are more rare than stories with happy endings so I do that to try and make my stories more original. Who knows?
Yeah, I've never been a big Ginny/Harry fan, but I didn't want to outright say, "Ginny was completely unhappy with her marriage because of that" or something. I liked leaving it up in the air, so people could think she just felt that way for a day or that she had felt that way for years. For some reason, I also like stories that leave the conclusion up to the reader o_O (See Colours of the World? Hahaha).
Yes! Complicated stories are bomb :D
Thanks! I actually felt sort of odd writing Molly that way, like someone might say, "That's not what Molly is like at all!" and I'd cower under their rightness. So it really means a lot to me that you don't think that :)
Haha, of course I did! I always mention you in Author's Notes now. And your banner is gorgeous - why wouldn't I use it?
Bahahaha. I just looked at the note again and it does kind of sound like that. Oh well...I doubt anyone else interpreted it that way.
Thank you! You are lovely lovely times a million as well :D
