Hi Academica, here for our review swap :)

I really liked the theme of this fic. It is very realistic that Ginny would suffer some kind of Post-traumatic stress after such a horrifying experience. I get the feeling she is suffering from a touch of post-natal depression too and it is manifesting itself with the nightmares and flashbacks etc.

I felt the characterisation of Ginny in this was great. You depicted a young woman adapting to motherhood very well and I loved how you had her thinking about how her life has changed, and mourning it in a way. Again, this is realistic for any mother with young children (I'm still mourning my pre-child life ;))

Your descriptions were really good. I especially liked the start of the nightmare scene.

The little touches you have put in here were great too. I really liked this line As she cradled her two-month-old son, she remembered with some degree of fondness how she had foolishly granted Harry full power over what to name the baby so long as she could have another one. You're lucky you're so cute, she thought as she gently rocked him. it is just great, really made me giggle!

This was an original and interesting look into how life would have been for Ginny. I'm intrigued as to where you are going with this plot line and how Ginny will conquer her fears and nightmares. A great first chapter!

Author's Response: Hello, thanks again for the wonderful swap! I'm really sorry this response too so long!!

I hadn't thought too much about the possibility of post-partum depression, but I guess I did sort of unconsciously incorporate it in the theme, given Ginny's faint sense of dissatisfaction with her new quiet life as a stay-at-home wife and mother. I'm happy to hear that you liked the descriptions and felt my depiction of Ginny as a young mother was realistic, too. Everyone seems to really like that line about Albus, and I kind of like it as well :)

Thanks again for your lovely review!
