Hey there, Amanda! Spotted you in the review tag and just had to come by! I have to admit that I've read this all the way through already, but didn't have time to review, but popping back was easy enough since, gosh, I love this story so much! :)
Sorry for the gushing and praise, etc. in advance. ;)
One of the things I love the most about this is all the detail you put in. Every time I read it, I realise I've forgotten bits and pick up on other little things... like Rita Skeeter having another gossip rag after her the war and saying Ginny and Harry are going to split up, Dumbledore never mentioning Ginny's name after the CoS incident... there are more, but I won't recite them all otherwise this will become a ridiculously long review :P Suffice to say that I love them all and it's so incredible the way you manage to get them all in, and they're all so canon, if that makes sense. They really seem to fit in with the world and make sense.
Of course, all your characters are brilliant, as always, but I really love the way you write Harry and Ginny's relationship. It's so... beautiful, you know, and real. I love that you don't try to hide that they get annoyed with each other and things. It's the little things, I think, which really bring it to life - the little things you mention - and the way you keep them as separate persons at the same time.
You write Ginny marvellously, as well! I've always seen her as such a strong, individual person, and I love how you're showing her as that but also not, if that makes sense. Like she is strong, but she's sort of breaking.
I love love love your plot so much! The idea... gah, you know I'd never thought of doing something like this; it's such a unique idea and I honestly have no idea where you're going to go with it. I'm so fascinated by the therapy scenes and the way you write Ginny and what's happening to her, and what might happen... I'm honestly completely enthralled by this and every time I see a new chapter I have to read it immediately :P
So yeah, I just love this. So much. It's incredible, you're incredible (but you knew that already ;D), and gah, I can't wait for you to update (and I promise I will try and review. I should, I really should...).
Author's Response: Hey Laura! Gah, this response is abysmally late, and for that I'm sorry. I'm here now!
Hah, you know I love my details. I always think, "Hmm, how could I work in an interesting fact here?" or "I bet readers will have questions about this, so how could I go ahead and address it?" I'm glad they really add to the story and don't just feel like long-winded explanations.
I've never really found Harry's relationship with Ginny interesting before, but I've really gotten into it by writing this story. I think it's the little quirks and moments that you share that really define a marriage and it's neat to watch their personalities intersect, sometimes with a bit of chaos.
I'm glad to hear that you find my Ginny interesting and like the overall concept. It's been fun to explore the process of therapy in a magical context and try to write a good mystery in the process :)
Thanks so much for your really lovely compliments! I don't even deserve them!
