REVIEW TAG!

This sounded interesting, and as I am also writing a story for multiple challenges, I thought I'd take a peek at how you did it :P

I remember feeling really awkward with the entire singing Valentine dwarf scene in Chamber of Secrets and second-hand embarrassment is probably nowhere near as bad as first-hand embarrassment. I've never thought about how Ginny probably felt. She seems to have grown up okay despite it, but obviously, it's had a large impact on her, at least in terms of Valentine's Day.

There's nothing that quite brings people together like broken hearts and a mountain of chocolate. It was wonderful to read that little anecdote about the four girls just being teenagers even amongst all the fear and Voldemort craziness.

Oh, I love how you've turned around the gender stereotype of the guy always forgetting the anniversary! I'm terrible with dates myself, so it's so obvious to me that girls also forget things like that. I can totally understand someone forgetting what day it and why it's important because of how crazy life can get sometimes.

OMG. WHAT. GINNY'S DEAD. NOT EXPECTING THAT. I have no idea why I didn't expect someone to be dead. I just went and re-read the story to see if I'd missed something, and the clues were there. I guess I was just too absorbed in Ginny reminiscing about all her Valentine's Days - both good and bad. On the re-read though it sounds as if Harry's the one who's died. So, double plot twist!

And what kind of place has she ended up where there's no Chocolate Cauldrons? Despicable! She should ask for a refund!

Author's Response: Yay, someone else who takes on too many challenges and manages to fit them all into one story! :P

I know, it must have been so embarrassing for her, to hear her Valentine read in front of everyone! (Actually when I was that age I had a similar situation, only I was the Harry of that situation... yes, awkward haha.)

Yeah, I think the Voldemort craziness probably separated a lot of people for various reasons, but that suffering can bring people together, as can chocolate :)

I'm glad you liked that! I love to challenge gender stereotypes, and the idea that only guys forget things like that is quite silly to me too. Ginny never seemed like a sentimental type so I figured it worked for her.

I'm so glad you had that reaction, haha! I tried to make it sound as if Harry was the one who died so I'm glad it seems that way until the twist. It's wonderful to hear that the story is that absorbing too!

Heh, yeah. No wonder Voldemort tried so hard not to die - maybe he just really liked Chocolate Cauldrons. :P

Thanks so much for your review!!
