Review:CambAngst says:
I... wow... I'm still sort of struggling to process everything that I just read.

I guess I'll start with my initial reaction, and I hope you take it for what it's meant to be: just my opinion. I like where this chapter ended up, but I was really uncomfortable with how it got there. I struggled a lot with the things that Ginny said to Hermione in the house. And it wasn't so much that I thought it sounded out of character. Ginny has that side to her, the girl who has very strong opinions and forces the issue. It was two things, really. One, Ginny sounded very sure of herself for somebody who's still sorting out her own feelings for Harry. Two, I was shocked to see Hermione just crumble the way that she did. It's not that she hadn't had some doubts about her new direction in life, but to just utterly capitulate the way that she did without even a hint of trying to fight back... It didn't feel right at all. And the way that Ginny dealt with Robbie... it was so brief and dismissive. Felt very, very weird.

Once the two of them came back to the Burrow, things got better for me. I did find Molly's reaction a bit odd. Throughout the story, Molly and Arthur both have had this back-and-forth quality to their characterization: either too overbearing or too permissive. She more or less just smiles and lets Ginny drive the bus in this case, which didn't really match some of her earlier behavior.

I did love Hermione and Ron's reunion, although I have a strong suspicion that their troubles as a couple are not over. The way that Hermione gave up so easily to Ginny makes me wonder whether her change of heart was completely genuine. We shall see...
