Review #1, by theblacksisters Ginny Potter

31st October 2013:
I'm fairly sure Ginny's animagus form would be a horse, as that's her patronus.

Author's Response: Patronus form has nothing to do with (necessarily) Animagus form. Patronus form deals with your current state of mind, personality and surface things. An Animagus form is based on core aspects of your personality, things that would never change. Tonk's Patronus changed, so Ginny's could be different depending on where she is in her life, her love for her children could change her patronus, but not her animagus form.

I highly doubt Harry Animagus form would be the same as his Dad's because they are fundamentally different people, but his Patronus is a Stag, maybe the spell creates the patronus form out of something you admire, as well as aspects of your personality. A patronus is supposed to be your perfect companion, Harry, having never met his dad would have loved to know him better and the Stag's calm and stoic nature is a nice balance for Harry's more flighty aspects. An Animagus is fundamentally, you, not who you want to be or aspire to be or would compliment you somehow, you.

There is a difference, in my opinion, between an animagus form and a Patronus. So I will be keeping this fic as it is.

Apart from that, when I wrote this I didn't know what Ginny's patronus was.

Thanks for the review.

Review #2, by Singularity Ginny Potter

21st December 2010:
Hmm, this is an interesting concept, and I'm not really sure where you're going with it, which isn't a bad thing. It's a short chapter, but I think you've captured Ginny's character well. I especially liked the part where she kind of compared herself to her mother. You can tell that Molly was an amazing mother and a brilliant influence on all of her children, but perhaps her daughter most of all.

I noticed a few typos/mistakes:

-In the first sentence it says "right ring ringer" instead of "finger."
- When Ginny first transforms, you say that she knows what she will see when she looks in the mirror, but in the next paragraph, she is 'stunned' by what she sees. It just seemed a little contradictory to me.

Maybe just give it another quick read through and see what you can find.

Nice first chapter. Good luck with continuing the story!


Author's Response: Thanks, I really hoped that would come through to the reader, because I found a new kind of respect for Molly when she defeated Bellatrix, she officially became the coolest fictional mum ever!

I think when I wrote 'stunned' what I meant was that despite knowing what she should have looked like having doing all the meditations and stuff doesn't mean it's going to be exactly as you pictured it, she wasn't expecting red tipped flight feathers for example. As well as that, you never really know what you are going to see when you look in a mirror. You have a memory of what you looked at last time you looked in one, but you may have done your hair or make-up differently and in a way that makes you stop and look at yourself for a moment longer than usual, because you look different. So it's stunned in an 'I almost can't believe I actually did it' kind of way, but thank you, I will take a look and see if I can put it any better in the chapter :D

Thank you again :D
