Hello there! ilharrypotter/polkadot from the forums with your requested review.

Looking forward to reading these missing moments - I do love Ginny, and wish she could've been featured more throughout the series. Alas, she wasn't, but things like this always make me smile.

I love this. I really do. It's so powerful to read what you think Ginny must have been thinking during these times - and realistic as well. And when Ginny screamed to distract her mother, even though she knew she was letting Harry escape into danger - also, really powerful stuff.

Also, the part when three of her brothers shielded her to protect her during the battle, since they knew she couldn't really use her magic - beautiful. Honestly, it was. It was a simple paragraph, but it shows you so much about the Weasleys and about their family bond. I loved that addition, even if you didn't mean as much with it as I took from it.

I really enjoyed this - looking forward to seeing more from you.

-Paige.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! Ginny was one of the characters I was always intrigued by early on, since she was always just in the background and seemed to be waiting to have her "big moment", similar to Neville in my mind. I was a bit disappointed that she didn't get a bit more focus in the final book, but it leaves lots of room for me to write my own interpretation.

I'm glad you liked the scene with her brothers shielding her--I think Ginny being the youngest of the family and the over-protected (at least in her mind) plays a major part in her character development. This was one of my favorite parts to write, as I've always seen her as having a special bond with her older brothers, particularly Fred, George, and Charlie. The chapter I'm working on now is set at Fred and George's shop over Christmas break, so there should be more fun family bonding time ahead.

Thanks again for your kind review, I really appreciate your taking the time to do this!
