That ending was so good, Ginny definitley showed him lol.
Ok, firstly charcterization, i loved the way you werote Ginny, she was so in character, yet you showed a more weaker side to her, as though she was inferior for once. I'm glad because most people usually describe Ginny as being perfect so this was a good change for once. Usually i don't tend to read Ginny Weasley fan fictions but this one was surprisingly good, i could really step into her shoes and place myself into her position. and Stephen, he was nothing better than a dirty cheating rat, i'm just surprised Ginny didn't realise that sooner, no matter, it was still a very realistic relationship. He was trying to use her and she wasn't having it. And that last part, where Harry gave her that look my heart just melted, the best scene in this chapter i think.
The plot was fantastic, it wasn't based around Harry for once, you showed a chapter of Ginny's life where she was going through a lot which is very different from what i usually read from Ginny Weasley's point of view.
Spelling, grammar and Pun punctuation were all perfect, descriptive writing was very good (Brilliant writing style by the way) and overall this chapter was very enjoyable to read. Well done.

Wow, this was a great chapter on Ginny! I always saw her as a very confident, very strong character, but she really wasn't like that always, was she? She really used to be that shy, scared little girl desperately in love with Harry. However, the way you developed her from that girl into the fierce, confident Ginny that we know by introducing Stephen was very well done! It's quite possible even for the strongest of characters to fall for a jerk and be so blinded by love not to see their true colors. The way Stephen treated her was just horrible and she endured it all because she wasn't sure in her own worth. She hid her insecurities and fears behind a mask of confidence because she thought it would help her forget about Harry and Stephen realized that and used it to his advantage.

I especially liked the talk Ginny had with Molly. It was a true mother-daughter bonding moment and it finally opened her eyes - she finally realized she should wait for someone who will recognize her true worth, even if that someone *cough-Harry-cough* took a little more time to get his act together and finally realize that she had always been right in front of him. He was just to stupid to see her for the wonderful girl that she is.

Amazing chapter, I enjoyed it immensely!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I really wanted to convey that Ginny wasn't always as strong as she's portrayed to be in the books, later on. We know in CoS she's not very strong, but then in OotP and later she is very strong. I felt like we needed to know what happened to make her the strong independent woman she is. I love how confident Ginny is now. I loved the talk with Molly too. It's not often a teenager looks to their parents for advice, and even less often when they listen if they haven't been through something horrible. Ginny had to go through what she did before she listened to her mom, otherwise, I don't think it would have meant as much! Thank you!

I love the way you portray Ginny in this story. She is very easy to identify with. Every woman (I think?) has some kind of point of reference where they can relate to her experience. Through trying to get over Harry, Ginny opens her heart up and gets it broken. I'm glad you show her gaining the strength to put Stephen behind her, thus opening herself up for Harry. This is really awesome! :)

Wow, what a jerk! It's a bit hard to believe Ginny would get sucked into a relationship so easily with such a terrible guy, but I understand how it could happen.. how she could get attached and like him a lot and not even realize what he's doing to her.. I guess kind of like an abusive relationship. I loved how it was Ginny's mom that pointed out to her how she deserved someone better and finally got her to realize Stephen wasn't worth it and how terrible of a guy he was. I loved the last paragraph of the story.. it really shows a great defining moment for Ginny.. Harry is finally starting to show some interest. I like that a lot. This was a great story!

Hey Lisa! This is a really good Ginny story. You've portrayed her as the vulnerable girl she was before she became the ultimate glamazon - gorgeous, confident, fiery, etc. I really like this glimpse of her learning what it is to be a woman and to have to go through heartache. Her relationship with Stephen is well written and I can really understand why she fell for him and why it hurt so much when he betrayed her. The last thing she said to Stephen was absolutely brilliant and so Ginny! I love the foreshadowing you added in of the look Harry had in his eyes for the first time when he looked at her. He's finally realized that she's his equal and they belong together. Nice story, I really liked it :) 10/10

I love the way you wrote her becoming stronger and independent.The little talk with her and Molly made me smile, she really is amazing. The ending was great! Harry most definitely doesn't see her as a little sister anymore. I loved it, great job ;)

I get to be first to review, AGAIN! I am so happy! This chapter shows how Ginny grew in strength and independence, and you capture that time in a girl's life when she can be so easily fooled by a handsome face and sweet words. The conversation between Ginny and Molly is lovely. I think you did a fantastic job when she talks about her relationship with Arthur. The end always makes me smile, knowing that Harry definitely has noticed that she's not just the little sister anymore. Well don, hon.
