I can just imagine Molly's reaction when she learned that Ginny wasn't going to finish school and go play Quidditch instead. That everyone found a reason to leave the Burrow until Arthur got her calmed down. :)

That was very sweet of Harry to buy Ginny a Firebolt of her own, but why was Ginny so sad after making her decision? Was it because she wouldn't be around Harry? With the Floo network and Apparating, wouldn't Harry be able to see her more often than they think? Even with his Auror training?

Author's Response: Hi!!! Thanks so much for leaving a review!

I'm so glad you thought the description of Ginny and Mrs. Weasley's fight was true to their characters :) I completely agree that the other Weasleys would have fled, so I'm glad that translated into the story!

That is a very interesting question! I think that Ginny was really only sad about the Harpys right after the option became available to her. The way I see it, she had never considered any other possibilities for the next year of her life aside from Hogwarts. The fact that such a huge change had been proposed to her so suddenly just shocked her. It caused her to question everything she had thought about her future. I don't think she was sad so much as she was just scared. Once she finally came to her senses and accepted the offer, she was happy in her decision, but was still worried that she was doing the right thing and that she was prepared for what would come.

I don't think any of her emotions about accepting stemmed from leaving Harry. Of course she was sad about that, but she would have been separated from him whether she was in Holyhead or at Hogwarts. As far as her sadness after making her decision, her pouting in that moment really just came from her anger at not being able to go outside to train. (Silly Ginny!)

I'm glad you thought the Firebolt was a nice touch! I think that that was just the kind of thing Harry would do. The poor guy isn't very good at expressing his feeling verbally, so buying her a Firebolt was his only way of telling her how much he supported her and cared for her :)

Thanks so much, again, for leaving a review! It means so much to me that you not only keep reading this story, but that you take the time to share your thoughts :D I always enjoy hearing them!
