I'm not sure if I managed to post you a review do the last chapter so I apologise if I haven't! I'm quite heavily pregnant now, four weeks to go! So I have quite a bit of time I spend not doing much at all, apart from feeling very uncomfortable, so I intend on rereading this story...again!
I'll confess that I was a bit worried about reading this chapter today. You see, I've been reading a lot of Lily/James fanfics and I wasn't sure if I'd feel the same connection to Harry/Ginny stories anymore. Thank goodness I was wrong! Very wrong in fact! I loved it, though it probably wasn't meant to be a chapter to love. I just liked the way you portrayed Ginny, she was worried and scared but she couldn't really express that straight away, so she snapped at her best friend, something I do far too often! Especially with my crazy hormones! I liked the simple demonstrations of affection between Ron and Hermione as well, though I need to know what Ron's been up to, there better be a proposal soon! Haha, I'm only joking, only write that moment in when you feel it's right!
Anyway, I like year five so far. Everything was well written and you captured the death of Dawlish very well, it was sensitive yet I still felt the horror and shock of Harry and Ron at the same time! Very well done, I don't know how many times I can say it. I feel like my words have lost all meaning when it comes to these reviews, but I really believe you're supremely talented, I'm not being nice to anyone at the moment, so you should feel honoured, haha!
In your response to my review of the wedding chapter you told me I'm too kind...never! I say what needs to be said, nothing more or less. I hope everything's going well with your new move and that it's all the things you hoped it would be and more! Make sure you're living life to the full, write only when you feel it, don't stress. The best stories take a grey deal of time!
Author's Response: Hi there!!
No worries - I completely understand. Wow, you must have a baby by now! Congratulations!! Hope everything is well with you and your family.
I'm so happy you could get back into the Harry/GInny feelings, and that you liked the portrayal of Ginny in this! Yes, worrying does have a tendency of making people snap at the wrong person, doesn't it? (Lucky you for being able to blame hormones, haha!)
I'm glad you're liking year 5! :) Honestly, your reviews have not lost the least bit of meaning, not to me at least. You should see the giant smile on my face right now. It's amazing to me that people are actually enjoying something I wrote and I do still think you're too kind, haha. I appreciate it so much that you've taken the time to write this, though. I don't think I can thank you enough! And also, thanks for being so patient - I'm loving life at the moment but it is hard to find as much time for writing.
Thank you again! xxx
