Here for the BvB battle!

Wow. I wish I'd kept reading this sooner. You write so clearly and smoothly, and you manage to portray the struggles that your characters are going through with fantastic eloquence.

I love the little details. Ginny adjusting the straps of the nightgown, opening a recipe book, Hermione's garden, Luna's engagement. You add so many little details that pull the story together and give it a sense of realism that it often missing from fanfics.

I can feel Harry's tension and apprehension, and I can totally relate to him. When somebody you love is obviously going through something but just refuses to open up and share, it takes a toll on you. I imagine that he's already got post-war traumas to deal with, and they could both improve their conditions faster is they went to each other for support and comfort.

I also really like the way you portrayed the tension between Ginny and Ron.

This is just written so well. The pacing and flow give a sense of lethargic motion and suspended time. They're in real life, but not quite living in it yet.

I love that you gave Hermione and Ginny a friendship, and I think it's great that Hermione is supportive and non-judgmental.

I'm happy that Ginny is taking the first steps to getting help. It's so sad to hear that she's been struggling with this for so many years. I think people tend to forget that she was in the Darkest corners of the world before even Harry was introduced to it. I think that's one of the things that makes their ship believable. They have the very rare and very unique experience of being subjected to Voldemort's mind in common. That's a strong bond.

Really, this is just fantastic.

Author's Response: Glad to see you again!

Details are a big part of my style as an author and I'm always happy when people appreciate seeing them dotted throughout. I try to think through every aspect of every scene and anticipate wonderings or questions that my readers might have.

Yeah, there is a lot of emotional tension in this story. I think you captured it quite well--almost everyone has been visibly traumatized in one way or another, and yet Ginny feels like she has to fight her battles all on her own, at least for now. Of course that would be challenging for Harry, to see his poor wife in silent suffering.

I'm glad to hear you liked seeing that sort of sisterly bond between Hermione and Ginny. Like Harry, she shares a sense of trauma with Ginny, particularly given her experiences at Malfoy Manor. I agree that the bond is trauma is one of the most beautiful things about Harry/Ginny, too.

Thanks so much for your lovely review! Hope to see you again here soon!
