Hello! :)

Wow, I really loved this. Reading it actually made me sort of emotional because I just felt so proud of Ginny and filled with love for her. She's such a wonderful character and you truly brought that to life here.

I love how you structured the story, beginning with Ginny's doubt about herself and then the switch where the unseen voice tells her all of her accomplishments and shows her (and the reader) what a strong and amazing person she really is. The use of second person was really effective here because it was like Ginny's inner doubting voice turning around on her.

The repetition of the lyric was really cool and I love how it represented her Gryffindor side as well. The whole concept of the note was cool and so relatable in a way, especially the detail about how she kept the note in her bra as a reminder to be brave, and how it went from being a childhood goal to a reassurance. The bra thing was so typical and relatable for girls, I loved it, and how she got it as a tattoo was very neat as well. There were so many amazing details here, like how she feels like her brothers all decide to take care of her and how they hold onto innocence through her - which seems very realistic for their family and makes a lot of sense - and I loved the wedding and the mentions of Hermione and Luna, they were so in character and just perfect.

This was an amazing one-shot, and I really loved it! :)

Author's Response: Hiya! Thanks for reading!

I honestly love Ginny so much, and the fact that this piece makes you feel the same is awesome! I find Ginny is such an underrated character in the fandom, which I can never understand because she's just so phenomenal.

I'd never really delved into Ginny's story or her psyche until I wrote this piece, and the more I thought about what she's been through the more I realised that she struggles with a lot of things that often go unnoticed or ignored, and that self-doubt was going to be one of them. I think it's so important to show that she can be afraid and doubting herself but still be incredibly courageous, and she realises that for herself as an adult.

The boys holding onto their innocence through her is definitely one of the biggest things that struck me about her - she's the little sister, after all, and they all felt something of a burden to protect her. I'm glad you found the characterisations of Hermione and Luna realistic, despite how brief their appearances were.

Thank you so much for this review!
