HOLD ON. You have a FRED story out and I didn't know about this! AND you're writing with HARRY and GINNY? Really, what has the world come to xD

I have a really bad habit of scrolling to the bottom of the page and reading the author's note first, so when I read this one, I was determined to poke holes in Ginny's character. I mean, you can't be perfect at everything, right? But I read it through twice, and I could find nothing wrong. She was the perfect blend of the strong, fiery girl and a young daughter who's greiving for her brother. The part where she asked Molly if she could keep the sweater was brilliant. That had Ginny written all over it. She actually suits your style, I think. But everything suits your style xD Someday, I WILL find a character you can't write perfectly. Even though that's pretty much impossible... >.<

I loved all the touches of Fred in this. When DHp2 had just come out this summer, I went on a Fred spree and read all these tragic one shots of the aftermath of his death and cried my eyes out, etc, so I thought I had seen every unique take that you could put on this story, but you gave me something new. I like how this wasn't everyone bawling their eyes out and writing cheesy letters at his grave, but rather, it was strangely normal. But through the entire thing, I could feel that there was something missing. And just that slight bit of emptiness 1) made this absoultely gorgeous and 2)made me cry for Ginny. And I don't LIKE Ginny. So that was an accompishment.

BECAUSE I'M DETERMINED TO FIND SOMETHING TO CRITIQUE:"That oneís for Hermione," Ginny's mother said when Ginny picked up a dark blue jumper with a stack of book upon the front. " It should be stack of books, not stack of book xD HAHA. I DID IT. I FOUND A MISTAKE IN YOUR STORY.
I literally did not think that was possible. And even when I do find something, it's a typo. *hangs head*

So the point of this strange ramble was to tell you that this story was amazing and you are perfect and you can most definitely write canon. And that this is one of the only times I've actually liked Ginny in a story :D

Author's Response: I don't know HOW it happened if I'm really honest with you. One minute I was sat casually and the next I was mid-ginny-story going 'WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS AC? YOU CANNOT WRITE CANON CHARACTERS' and I struggled so much with the beginning, so I have no idea why I continued :p

(and since then I've written a slash one-shot too, I'm going craazzy).

"She was the perfect blend of the strong, fiery girl and a young daughter who's greiving for her brother."

^Thank you -blushes- you're too nice to me, honestly. I'm not sure whether I like Ginny, you know, I've never quite been able to get a grip on her character so writing this was definately a little strange (not least because both Harry and Hermione speak. What is THAT about?)

Thanks for finding the typo! I'm entirely sure that my stories are littered with mistake, particuarlly when I'm lazy about editing...and I'm sure you've picked them up before. Well done? Ahha. I'll fix it when the queue opens :P
(I'm writing this at quarter to nine in the morning, hence why this sounds a little more normal)

And thank you very much for your lovely review! I'm still not entirely convinced about my canon-abilities. I guess I'll have to try a couple more one-short/short stories about real characters :P
