Aww, that is so sweet! :D Okay, first off, I have to admit that I chose this story primarily because I saw aim.moon had done the banner for it and I love the graphics she made (it was really hard to choose which one-shot to review, they all look so interesting!) so I picked this one. And I don't regret it at all!
I love how you've used first person to tell it, you know, how it's Harry talking to Ginny even though she's not there, or writing her a letter or something. But, any way, it's him to her and it's such a good way to do it. Honestly, I hate first person so I'm pretty amazed you did it so well and it seems so easy for you! *is jealous
I really liked how you characterised Harry as well. You made it clear that while there are numerous reasons for why he's fighting and numerous people he's fighting for as well, he's secretly fighting for her and wishes he wasn't. It's just... the whole idea of him wishing he was fighting for the 'right reasons' is so Harry. It's just absolutely him.
Also, I really liked how you pulled in the whole 'I don't know what I'm doing' thing as well, because Harry's still human and will have had moments where he just wonders 'what am I doing?' and I thought that came across so well, and you explored that really nicely.
Oh, and Hermione was lovely! I liked how it was only a brief moment - it kinda seemed like it could be a scene from the film when they're in the forest, you know? - and they only shared a short conversation. I also liked how it was her comment which set him thinking because that's often how things work in real life and it was so realistic and true to both characters the way you portrayed them.
Eh, I think I rambled a lot :D In short, I liked it very much!
Author's Response: Aim. Moon is amazing, she just, there is no way I can explain her graphics, I know the feeling. :) Thank you though, I got very worried about this one, but I'm really happy you liked it.
Recently first person and I broke up, I mean I had written in first person so much, for some reason my mind just wanted me to write in third person all the time. So don't be jealous, but thank you for all the nice things said.
Thank you, I get worried sometimes that people think that Harry is to much in love with Ginny, but then I think that's a good problem, there really is nothing wrong being so much in love with someone.
Harry is still human, and sometimes people forget that, and there is nothing wrong with just being human.
I love all your rambles, it made my whole year, thank you so, so, so, much!
