Review:RonsGirlFriday says:
I really love this. I, for some reason, find Harry/Ginny immensely difficult to write, and I also haven't attempted a songfic because so many songfics come off seeming awkward that I'm afraid to try it. You've done both here, and I think you've done it really well. You used the lyrics sparingly, and they seem to form the background of the fic, so they're not really intrusive or jarring. And I think you've kept Ginny very well in character - not too soppy or overemotional. The mother-daughter moment was very sweet, as well as the point Ginny learned, which was that she had the opportunity to give some semblance of normalcy and stability to Harry's life. I think the reason I support Harry/Ginny, while it's not my number one ship, is because Ginny is the person who can be his rock, and she can tolerate his moods as well as the dangerous lifestyle he has to have at this point in his life - though she doesn't necessarily have to like it, of course. So I really enjoyed this, and I didn't think there was anything wrong with glossing over the part where Harry arrives after the Battle of the Seven Potters. Their relationship was the focus of this fic, and anyway we already read the part about Mad-Eye's death in the series. Great job writing about one of the HP ships that I find very difficult to replicate in fanfiction. :-)

Author's Response: I haven't written a lot of Harry/Ginny, and though I do love them (they are one of my top favorite ships) I did think they were harder to write than I'd expected. I'm glad you liked the way I handled their relationship here. Songfics are awkward, aren't they - this is only my second.

The reason I've always loved Harry and Ginny together is because I don't think anyone else could understand him the way she does. They have similar personalities, similar interests, and her experience with Voldemort, while not on the level of his, allows her to really see why he needs to do what he needs to do. Hmm. Now I wish I'd touched on that bit in the story. Might have to write something new there.

Anyway, thank you so much for the lovely review! I really appreciate it. :)
