Merry Christmas!

Haha, but seriously, Debra, your characterisation is amazing. Honestly, this is one of the best portrayals of Ginny I've ever read. She's incredibly in-canon (is that a word?) and absolutely wonderful. Neville is perfect, (my God, my baby is all grown up!) and I can't get over how well you've written him. He really has developed as a character through out the HP series, and you've really kept with that. I can totally see the boy that grew up without his parents, had self-esteem issues when it came to friends, and slowly, slowly grew into himself, becoming this wonderful man that destroys snakes while wearing cardigans. I've always imagined that Neville went on to win Witch Weekly's Most Eligible Bachelor Award for years in a row after he left school. He'd be all, 'what? Again? ME?' and everyone around him would be swooning, and he'd be completely oblivious, because he's gorgeous. Oops! I'm ranting again...

Your structure was also great, and it flowed really well, considering the number of prompts you managed to include. Good job on that, by the way. Still on a high from our House Cup win! Go Gryffindor!

I can't believe you only have one story posted to this account. Seriously - your writing is amazing.

Meep. I'll stop now, haha. But I will be back!

Merry Christmas again!

- SS.

Author's Response: Hey Santa! I'm so happy you made time to stop by my little story. It means a lot to me :)

I'm so relieved you liked my characterization. It's one of the aspects I strive to do best when starting to write anything, especially in an already established world like Harry Potter where many of the characters have well grounded voices.

Neville had the best evolution in my opinion. But even if he was a true Gryffindor now, I couldn't imagine him being brave all of a sudden. After all, he has been pretty mellow and scared of doing anything against the rules for so long, it would be only natural for him to doubt what they were about to do. Especially since Snape was involved.

I am very happy we won the House Cup too. It was a very nice surprise. My first win since joining the forums :D
I promise I'll write more stories. I want to get more involved too ;)

Merry Christmas to you too!
