Go Ravenclaw! ^_^
I haven't read many pieces about Ginny and I don't think I've read any about her relationship with Harry at that point in time. I really liked this one--her character fit perfectly in what we know of her in canon. We know all about what Harry's feeling right then, in the first few weeks afte their break up, but we really don't see much of Ginny's actual emotions. This provided the perfect answer to that and really was a joy to read--especially the mother/daughter conversation. Molly brought up all the right reasons, and I'm sure there's even more--but I hadn't considered any before. I really need to be more observant, haha. But seriously, I really liked the discussion with her and Ginny, she came off perfectly as Molly and didn't mollycoddle too much. The song lyrics fit perfectly with the story and the reasoning behind them (Ginny being Harry's safe house, if you will), again, fit with canon.
I do like how you focused more on Ginny, her feelings and emotions rather than Harry's arrival--I definitely got the impression that that was how this piece was supposed to be and it's nice to read a piece about just feelings sometimes, rather than all too much action or plot. There was a plot for this, but I feel that it was Ginny's emotions more than anything.
I really liked this! Ginny's character was just great and the idea was a wonderful one as well. :) Fantastic job!Author's Response: I don't write a lot of Harry/Ginny, but I really love the two of them, separately and together. So this was fun to write. A big change of pace from the Molly/Arthur I've been writing for the past three years! But of course Molly's still here, it's just as a mother instead of as a protagonist. ;)
The plot points are covered so well in the book, I didn't want to rehash them here. So it was just all about what Ginny was feeling for Harry. I really love that song, I've been thinking it was perfect for H/G for a while now. It's so pretty too.
Thank you so much for reviewing (go Claws!), I really appreciate it. Report Review
Oh my gosh, I'm crying. It probably doesn't help that I was already an emotional wreck before I started reading, but this was simply gorgeous. The line, "Even heroes need shelter from the storm" just kills me. How do you do that? Wrap up all these emotions into one beautiful sentence like that? I'm openly a Harry/Ginny fanatic, and a canon freak, so this is perfect. I will be looking up the song, and thanking the artist for inspiring this little piece of wonderfulness. Hey, it's a word. Breathtaking job, hon. I love it, and it was the perfect story for me at this moment. 10,0 out of 10. ~GWAuthor's Response: Aw thank you so much! This is a huge relief, actually, I was worried when I posted this that it wasn't any good. I wrote it kind of on the fly and without a lot of canon-checking. I'm starting to feel more confident about it now. I'm so glad you liked it! Yay! Report Review
I really liked this! I know how difficult it must have been for Ginny to stay back, wait, and worry, and you portrayed her beginning struggles quite beautifully. I'm so impressed! I loved Molly in this too. And yes, your banner is lovely!Author's Response: Thank you so much! I think it would have been very hard for her to stay back, she's not that type, and she hasn't had to do so before - she got to go along to the Ministry, and I think she would have expected equal footing. I'm glad you liked it :)

Lovely. I can't tell you how fantastic it is to me that you write such beautiful canon ships.
Always waiting for your next one... :)Author's Response: Thank you so much! :) I'm glad you liked it. I've been thinking of doing some different ships from my usual one of these days. Always canon, of course ;) Report Review
Beautiful! I love Ginny's descriptions of Harry, and her relationship with her mother. Perfect use of mythology reference, by the way. Kudos to you, 10/10!Author's Response: Yeah, it's a lot of mother/daughter relationship as much as it is her interaction with Harry, isn't it? I am really glad you liked it (and the Odyssey reference), thank you so much for reviewing! Report Review
Absolutely beautiful. And this is such a different take on that scene in DH. Most people just go with the typical "Ginny loves him and is so sad that he is leaving, boohoo" track (which there is nothing wrong with that). But I love how you keep Ginny as this strong character. Amazing job. ^.^Author's Response: Ah, seriously, the reviews on this story are a huge relief. I'm really glad readers have had a positive response so far. I wasn't sure this story was any good. Yay! Thank you so much for your kind words! Report Review
I really enjoyed reading this. A big part of my liking your story was Ginny's characterisation and that she wasn't overly emotional/girly about the situation (like in so many stories).
Fantastic insight!!Author's Response: Ginny doesn't seem the overly emotional/girly type, I've always thought. She does get portrayed that way in fanon sometimes, doesn't she? Thanks so much for the review, it came as a huge relief to read this - I was a little worried to post this one. I don't normally write Harry/Ginny! Report Review
