Wow! That was not at all what I was expecting. I've read any number of takes on what changed in Ginny's life after she was possessed by Tom Riddle. This is far and away the most unique. Well, except for that one where she instantly falls in love with Draco Malfoy, but let's leave that aside. ;)

First off, I'm back! I couldn't resist checking that little "proceed to next chapter" box before I submitted my review for the first one.

I guess it's hard for me to completely agree with your take on Arthur's reaction, but that's not the point. You have a premise and you did something really interesting and compelling with it. I'm sure Ginny was immensely sorry for everything that happened when she opened the Chamber, but if she thought that her father blamed her for allowing Tom Riddle to gain control over her then that's a whole other level of regret.

I thought your opening idea was brilliant. I'm sure that Arthur was thrilled in a completely different way when he and Molly finally had a daughter. The idea made perfect sense and that very special connection that Ginny shared with her father, being the youngest of seven, must have meant the world to her. The way you set that revelation up and delivered it was beautifully done.

Then to lose that special twinkle -- or to feel as though you've lost it, at any rate -- must have been especially devastating. I can't even imagine how that must have wounded her!

HOW does this story not have more reviews??? I am seriously blown away that it could have gone unnoticed by so many! It's a fantastic piece of writing and you deserve a lot of credit and much more attention!

Author's Response: This is unique? Oh, wow. That is such a huge compliment. I have read a lot of stories from Ginny's point of view and I never really thought that this was anything special, more of "just another" story describing Ginny after her encounter with Tom Riddle.

I like that you don't agree with Arthur's reaction with this. It means that I challenged you and you're challenging me and that's always a good thing. Now that I think about it, I do understand what you mean. It is hard to think of the kind-hearted Arthur that we all know and love being even the slightest bit disappointed with Ginny. But, having said that, I'm glad that it didn't deter you from this.

I can't imagine it, either. I just know that having your parents being disappointed in you has to be one of the worst feelings in the world. Poor Ginny!

You really are too kind, you know that? When I first came up with this, I never kidded myself into thinking that it would be immensely popular. But I'm okay with that. I write for myself, I write so that the stories in my head are out in the world, and it's reviews like this that make it all worth it.

Thanks so much!
