OK, one more and then I really, really have to get back to work. ;)

This one was perfect to me. This is exactly how I've always imagined Bill and Ginny's relationship. He seems exactly like the type of older brother who would be super-protective of his "baby sister" and dote on her. And Ginny, being the youngest and probably somewhat starved for attention at times, would definitely eat it up.

Every reaction makes perfect sense. From the way that she was devastated when Bill left to work in Egypt to the way that she bottled that anger up inside and suddenly allowed it to explode during one of the most stressful moments of her life. But then they found one another again as they tried to come to grips with Fred's death and all was forgiven. On both sides, it seems.

I saw a couple of small typos -- at least I think they're typos -- in the second-to-last paragraph:

He still offers to carry heavy things if he sees me struggling, still offers to hex Harry if he is ever being a git and always checked up on more than anyone else when Harry was out on Auror missions, but I donít hate him for it. Rather, I love him for it. He is still the older brother that took care of me when I just a little girl, small enough to be blown away with a gush of wind, and I know it is just as big a part of him as the three freckles on the very tip of his nose. -- I think you meant to say, "... always checked up on me more than..." and possibly "... a gust of wind..."

Another awesome chapter! Seriously, such an under-appreciated story!

Author's Response: Sigh. Work. It always gets in the way, doesn't it? :P

You saying that this is "perfect" - you, just... how am I supposed to respond to that? I don't know what to say other than you're ridiculously kind and I can't stop smiling!

I'm glad that you liked my take on their relationship. It's also how I have always imagined their relationship to be!

It's funny. Siblings are strange in that respect. You love them so much, you're so close to them, but it's also so easy to be angry at them and just let it explode. But because they're your sibling, you know that they will still always love you, no matter what. I think that's a bit of what happened with Bill and Ginny in this.

Thanks for pointing out those typos! Typos will forever be the curse of me. I will edit them, I promise! I have a very long list of typos that have been pointed out to me across all my stories (some of them are, embarrassingly, years old) and I will get around to them one day, I swear!

Thanks so much for your kind words!

Jasmine :)
