Review:DarknessIsMyOnlyFriend says:
I always like it when quotes or riddles and small poetic pieces, start of a chapter. It always creates a tone for the story. However, I could not find a disclaimer. I think it would be wise to put who you've used to the words from in an authors note or something.
Now on to more important things, like the story itself! :)
I really like that you spoke of that seventh year, in school. The books told us little about what it was like. I like your take on it!

And Ginny is very realistic! She would be the first to chance a walk during the late hours. I never really thought how it would have been for her, back in school. Not knowing where some of the most important people in her life were and if they were still safe. Like I said, I like how you took that and turned it into a story.
And she would struggle not saying Voldemort, instead of he-who-must-not-Be-Named.
And I love that you have her imagining a future with Harry. Even though it saddens her it shows her strength. Because she would not imagine it if she had lost hope entirely.

And I REALLY like you the way you describe things. It flows so easily into the story. I could imagine myself standing in that tower. I could almost smell the air, especially since you said it was impending with rain. Also these descriptions really fit right with the emotions of Ginny. So that's another big plus. Your descriptions set a mood, but still let's you imagine the castle in all it's glory, despite the horrible occupants it also holds.

I truly enjoyed this chapter! Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Author's Response: I actually credited the artist and song title in the story summary (the front page with the banner). But I appreciate your concern :)

It's good to hear that you like Ginny. She seems rather unpopular and hard to pin down, and I can't help but wonder what it would be like to be the leading lady for someone like Harry, who comes with so much baggage. I do think she's a mixture of typical girlish fears and a hidden measure of strength, one that Harry surely depended on as her partner.

It's great that you like the imagery, too, and that you were able to identify with Ginny in her present moment of discomfort.

Thanks for your very kind review!
