House Cup 2014 Review: Educational Decree Number Three

Hello there :) Honestly, this is a the first Ginny/Dean that I've ever read. I really like the Harry/Ginny ship, and so I haven't ventured out beyond that much. I suppose this is canon though, as it does happen before Harry and doesn't necessarily come in the way of the plot :p

As for the characters though, I did find them both very Out of Canon. I do believe that the love Ginny held for Harry was real. Also, Dean and Ginny didn't hate each other, during or after the break up. Dean was disgruntled and upset though. And Ginny is a very strong woman. You've changed that a bit here.

All in all, I won't say that the characterisation was believable, sorry. But I think the progression of events had some potential, albeit being a little confusing. In another world, or in real life even, it is possible that people could have fallen for Harry because of the things that came with his name. It's a good idea, and maybe it would have worked with other characters better! I think that you've written it, so maybe that would have been completely believable :)

Thanks for sharing this!

This is the first time I've read a Dean/Ginny story before. I really like missing moments stories from the book so this one looked interesting!

I love that ultimately Harry is the reason Dean and Ginny break up, it's so obvious throughout the books that he was always the one she loved the most, the one she loved truly. I think you've got that across well here. It did make me really want to kick Dean when he was being so awful to her about it though, she's always been the one girl who wasn't after Harry for his fame or money and for him to say that was so harsh.

I think the final sentence was a really effective way to end the story, it had a good tone of finality to it!

All in all, I enjoyed this. Though I would have liked a tad more description.

Hey, it's DarkRose.

Awesome job! I love how you interpretted the pairing. The interaction in the story was very legit. Haha. Great job with characterization. I like Dean. :] Though in most stories he's obnoxious, you made him cool. I also love that you made Ginny less of a Harry-worshipper and more of a gold-digger. It was... interesting. Really great job with the pairing. Thanks for participating in the challenge.

Kind of confusing at parts, but i got what you're saying. Don't think Dean would have an 'evil' laugh, but that's alright. Definately interesting, and unique, I'll give you that. 9.5, but since i can't put in nine and a half, ill round up. :)


Author's Response: Thanks for the review :) I'm sorry you found it confusing, I couldn't make it in character. But I'm glad you enjoyed :)
