Well, I was looking at your page and I guess, I was hoping to find a Harry and Ginny, because it's always nice to find a Harry and Ginny written by someone who known to have amazing writing.
Also I'm the world's biggest Harry and Ginny fan, I mean I don't shut up about them. So I was really excited to see this, and the summary was amazing.
I think your amazing writer, but I...I guess I'm hurt.
I was hurt to find out that she considered Tom Riddle her first love. I don't know if you're one of those people who think Ginny had to love Tom because he was in Harry in a way, I mean a bit of Tom was inside Harry.
I'm actually really against that because I see Tom as someone that hurt her, and Harry as her happiness. I think she saw as completely different and was one of the people that reassured him of every being very much unlike Voldemort.
I was hurt that you portrayed Harry like that. I was hurt because I don't think Harry thought Ginny as a marker, holding his page. I think he thought she wouldn't wait, that she wouldn't care.
I think he expected to come back, years later and see her, and she would be someone else's everything, bliss and joy. I think he hoped to see her again, for her to be his, but excepted never being normal again.
People don't understand that if Harry said screw it, I love her, I want to keep snogging her face off that Ginny would be hurt, and well that's the end of Harry and Ginny.
I think he truly wanted to keep her safe, I think he truly was fighting, even where he didn't know it for Ginny.
I was so hurt by Ginny. I was hurt because she's the same way everyone thinks her to be. For her to once have Harry and never care again.
She's not like that! She's loved Harry for such a long time, and now that she's what had him for a month, and now that he's gone she's what? Not going to care? She cares, she doesn't give up.
Everyone makes Ginny so tough and so determined for all the wrong things, and she's determined to keep fighting for her family, for Harry for the things she wants. I'm not saying some days she's lost or broken, or feels alone, but she determined for the ones she loves, and Harry is apart of that.
That's what her and Harry have in common along with a lot of other things. They're both so passionate, and trying to make things right, and they always get mad at each other because there doing the same thing in different ways, but just because you get mad at somebody doesn't mean you leave them forever.
I don't understand why Ginny is being like this. I don't understand why Harry seems like a jerk. And I don't understand the whole Tom Riddle was my first love thing!
I'm sorry for going on this really long rant, but I'm just a tad obsessed with Harry and Ginny, that's all. I don't want you to think I'm being mean, really I don't mean to be. I guess I'm just a little hurt, that's all.
Author's Response: Thanks for your honesty, Lizzie. I wish that I could have written something more to your taste, especially with your favourite ship. Harry and Ginny have always been a challenge to write, probably because JKR filled them out so much in the books, leaving little for someone like me to do - I don't feel particularly intrigued by them like I do with other characters in the series. However, I have written them more into my next-gen stories, mostly in the background, but they come through strong, or so reviewers have told me. As adults, I understand them more, for some reason. It's very strange.
Anyway, thanks again for reading and reviewing this story. Hopefully you can find something I've done that you enjoy. :)
