Hi Amanda!

I really enjoyed Harryís perspective in this chapter itís always interesting when we see his thoughts and I found it just as interesting here. He really is so lovely and I really like how you showed how he could keep that sort of pure aspect of his character because I have seen some characterisations of him when he goes off the rails after the war. There were so many little bits of his personality which were so him and that really made me smile. I think it was the way he just went out of his way to avoid the press and the small thought about his parents which really did it for me.

This meeting with Bree had a sign of hope and calm which hasnít really been present in most of the other sessions so it was really nice to read it here. I think it was just the way Ginny was thinking about her happier moments such as Jamesí birth and their honeymoon which made it so sweet because it shows that happy moments can be possible in her life. I really enjoyed hers and Harryís interactions in that section, and I have to credit you for really making me warm to this pairing. It was simply the little nudges they had and the way Harry cheered her on which really made me want to aw.

Hmm Ginny and Fleurís relationship is intriguing me. Obviously there had been some tension between the two before, but it seemed to be really highlighted here even though Fleur didnít feature in the chapter. First there was Harryís mention of her and the honeymoon and then Ginnyís reluctance with the baby shower. I made be reading too much into this and for it to turn out to be innocuous but I canít help but wonder if something has happened between the two.

I really loved the appearance of Molly in this chapter it was so much fun to read as her worrying self always does make me laugh. Though having her coupled with Hermione whoís also prone to worrying, I did find myself feeling sorry for Ginny with the barrage of questions about her life. You are certainly right about things not really going well for her so far, but I canít wait to read in the hope everything works out! Great chapter, Amanda!

Author's Response: Hi Kiana, thanks for coming by! I always look forward to your commentary on my chapters :)

I think the characterization of Harry where he goes off the rails could definitely be realistic, but I chose to make him a bit more stable here because I wanted to keep the focus on Ginny and I know she would really benefit from having his support.

I tried to really focus on Bree and her therapeutic style in this case, because I don't want people to judge her too harshly based on her slip in the first session and Ginny's general distrust of everyone. It was nice to be able to talk about some happier times with Ginny and Harry and to show that they really do have a strong foundation of love despite their recent troubles. I think it shows the contrast between the tabloid stories and what's really happening between them.

Yeah, Ginny and Fleur's personalities are really different and I think Fleur's happy lifestyle digs at Ginny a bit given her current circumstances. She's got the package Ginny always wanted--a nice home, healthy kids, and a quiet life punctuated by a bit of fun now and then. I don't think it's really personal about Fleur, but Ginny's jealousy is getting the best of her.

We'll have to see how the first Legilimency session goes for Ginny in the next chapter :) Thanks for your really lovely review!
