Oh my goodness. This was one of the most beautiful, eloquent, sad stories I have ever read. There were so many points where I just felt like crying because the emotion rolled into the words of this story were so powerful. The emotions are so raw and fresh it was just…unbelievable.

And by that I mean unbelievably well written. They were so true to the real feelings that run through you when you experience something like that; the wishing that one person was still there, just for one more Christmas, one more birthday, but knowing they can’t be. It’s excruciating. And I feel you do a great job at bringing that out.

I also feel like you do Ginny’s character some justice. You let her have the weakness of falling apart, but also give her the strength to hold herself together in front of her family. It shows the soft side of her character, that she isn’t hot headed. It also shows her love for her family.

Also, when you have Harry in there? I feel like he’s accurately portrayed. I can see him as being really withdrawn after the war, and keeping much of his guilt and other feelings to himself. He also keeps up with his concern and feelings for Ginny too, which is good.

I also like how you strive to keep most of the Weasley’s kept in the loop of this story, even though the main focus is on Ginny. It really pulls the whole piece together.

Two things that I did notice:

"There was nobody to tell you how to rebuild your life after it has been pulled from under your feet, how to live after war and how to continue when so many things have just stopped." –I think has should be had, because of the past tense in the beginning half of the sentence

"When Ginny went to bed when Christmas day was drawing to a close she..." instead of ‘when Christmas day’, maybe’ as Christmas day’, just because you use when to start the sentence and it sounds a bit weird when you read it out loud.

Otherwise I really did love this story! It is so beautifully written! Great Job!

Author's Response: That's a hell of a compliment right in there. I almost definately need to sit down and poke my inflated head with a couple of pins for a few minutes. I'll save that for after i've finished responding though, ahha :)

Personally, I'm terrified of writing characters like Ginny. I'm half convinced that I don't even really GET her from the books anyway, so to think that you think I managed to get her write is like yayayayayayaya. And even MORE so with Harry!! He didn't appear much, which is how I think I just about managaed to get away with his presence.

Oh, thank you for pointing those things out for me! I'll go fix them right away :)
