Oh, well, thanks for making me cry.

Ginny's feelings were so real here, during the entire chapter. The sort of out-of-body feeling at the beginning and throughout the funeral was very realistic and very close to how a person feels during that sort of time. The shock of it, not even being able to cry, was a very real feeling as well, and very relatable. Your descriptions throughout the chapter were very good, and easy to relate to.

Your characterizations were very good too. Ginny was perfect for this chapter, especially using Quidditch to help her forget and relax. I liked Harry too, and their conversation at the end was adorable.

All in all, very good chapter. You write the emotions so realistically, I was actually crying when you talked about George and Percy at the grave. Really good chapter (and I hope the next ones will be happier!)

Author's Response: Hello there!!

Thanks so so much for stopping by to leave a review, I'm sorry it has taken me so long to respond!

Well I'm truly sorry that I saddened you, I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy that my writing was able to bring out such emotions and tears from you.

I'm glad you thought Ginny's emotions were relatable. Luckily, I have not gone through the loss of an immediate family member, but I have experienced things similar to this - especially the feeling of guilt when you find yourself somehow unable to cry - and definitely drew on those experiences, so I'm happy to hear they were related well.

Genuinely, my biggest concern is staying true to the characters we all love so much, and portraying them the way JKR did in creating them. So hearing that the characters were done well is such a huge relief :) So thank you, for that and for your stamp of approval on that adorableness factor I know we all simply can't live without.

Thank you so much again!
