I'm speechless. That was so good. Song-fics are overdone and I find it frustrating when people use the lyrics of a song to tell a story but you did it so perfectly. You didn't rely on the song merely used the lyrics to capture Ginny's emotions and simplify them. The song helped the reader truly understand Ginny and added rather than detracted from the story.

I really liked the way you managed to give the reader all the background information they needed, such as how Harry died and what happened to Voldemort, without detracting to the story. You didn't give a long monologue of what happened but rather relayed the information coloured by Ginny's emotions and made it fit perfectly with the story you were attempting to tell.

Grief is very hard to portray. It is an emotion that I struggle to write as it is very hard to keep in character and still have the reader experience their pain. I am impressed with how well you have portrayed Ginny's grief. It is completely believable and it is not hard to understand why she is in so much pain. Her unbearable grief is so easy to empathise with and you had me almost in tears.

All the characters were completely in character. Ron's way of dealing with her grief is perfect as is Hermioneís and Mrs Weasley's. I liked the fact that you showed the effect of Ginny's grief on the rest of the family as it showed that she was not the centre of the world but rather a catalyst for her world falling apart. It was a nice way of keeping everything believable as she slowly lost herself to grief.

The ending. I love happy endings so much. Yours was so perfect. You twisted the song to fit her and made it your own. As far as I can tell the song didn't have a happy ending yet your story does and I find that wonderful. Having his child is a perfect way to complete a circle and close the story. I also liked the fact that Ginny wondered herself why she was so angry and the child settled any OOCness of Ginny as the reader realises that pregnant equals hormones which equals unpredictable behaviour.

The sentence where Harry says that he will always look down on Ginny even if he does die fits really nicely with the realisation in St Mungos that he was laughing with her from above.

I simply loved this story, it's now one of my favourites :D

Author's Response: Thank you so much!!! Grief is really hard to write without making it sound overly done. I was a bit worried about this one since I wrote it a while ago with some edits along the way. I'm glad that you like it and that it's one of your favorites :). Again, thanks for the lovely review. It made my day
