Ashley!! This is so very sad but so beautiful at the same time.

I really hate the idea of Ginny being completely fine after Harry left. When authors show her just strong and ready to take it all on because she's tough and can, that dehumanizes her for me. So to read this moment of real pain and weakness, when she isn't tough and she isn't independent, when all she wants is Harry by her side, was just perfect. She doesn't want to be Ginny Weasley, kick butt youngest sister and start Quidditch player. She just wants to be a girl who gets to hug her boyfriend and not watch him walk away.

I loved that her self pity didn't last too long, as well. It happened and it was intense, and it will probably happen again, but she's realized that committing herself to loving Harry means this kind of pain and loneliness. If she can just stick by him, it will all be worth it.

I always wondered if she felt left out for not really being part of the trio. Brother of one, close friend of another, and love interest of the third, but still not on the inside of it all. She was never told about all the things happening, and I love that you have that not usually upsetting her -- the thing that separated her from them -- but in this case it just kills her. She didn't want to be left all alone not knowing where they were going, not knowing when she'd see him next.. ;(. I'm getting so sad for her, and I NEVER get sad for Ginny!

In the end, when she left this heart crushing sort of thing pass and then picked herself back up and made herself realize it was time to get on with her life, to be the strength that she'd have to have, ahhh that was just so perfect. You're awesome, you know?

I'm so mushy and feelsy now ♥ this was beautiful.

I'm glad that you found my little one shot here.

I don't think that Ginny would be 100% alright with everything. I think that JKR wrote her as this really strong character sometimes without showing any vulnerability and so it was important for me to show that in this chapter. Because it honestly sucks when you get left behind.

And I agree with you, I don't think that Ginny would sit around and feel sorry for herself for that long. I think she's a bit like me, because that's what I do. I sit down, and I have my 10 minutes of crying after he leaves, and then I'm done! And maybe I still get sad from time to time, but my tears are mostly done after that 10 minutes. So that's kind of how I modeled Ginny and I think that's really how her character actually would be!

I'm actually not a big Ginny fan but here I found it really easy to relate. I agree, I never really get sad for Ginny either, but here I definitely do.

I'm glad you liked this story so much, it's one that I really writing and it's one of my favorite one shots :)
