Review #1, by Huffle Clause! (1)

20th December 2013:
Oh wow. This is just truly amazing and very original. I have NEVER read a fic before about Ginny's thoughts after Fred's death.

I think this is very realistic. With all the death and everything she's gone through, I imagine it would be hard for Ginny NOT to blame Harry, especially since he left her.

Your writing here is flawless and, although I don't know the song, I think the lyrics that you've included here fit perfectly.

At first, I thought the war was over at the beginning of this. But then when everyone started rushing outside, I realized that it was during the time that Harry went into the Forbidden Forrest. Ginny's reaction to his "death" was totally believable and emotional, just really, really well done!

Great job!!

Author's Response: Hello again!

Thank you for that pet, but there are a hoard of fics wandering around that probably depict her grief a whole lot better than I did in this! In my mind anyway (it seems a lot of things happen in my mind...) in the lull of the war, and even after it was all over, she was just so unexplainably angry at Harry, for leaving her, for dying on her, for just everything and anything she could think of really, just so as to try and escape grieving for as long as possible, because she sees Harry as invincible (which he isn't) so she thinks she has to be too.

I would definitely recommend listening to the song! Gets me every time.

Thank you so much!

That was an excellent story. Very sad to. I like how you make it seem like Ginny blames Harry for everything even though it's not his fault.

Author's Response: Thank you :)

Nothing is Harry's fault, of course! But I just always had a feeling that Ginny, who is such a firey, passionate person, I always thought that Fred's death would hit her really hard, so she would be left seething, looking for someone to blame :)

Thank you for reviewing :) They make my day :D

This. Is. Gorgeous.

Oh my goodness, this is so beautiful! You're an amazing writer. It's really refreshing to see a piece where Harry is blamed for the deaths, especially by Ginny.

And the bit about Ginny's heart being a kingdom in ruins? Absolutely heartbreaking! That part in particular was just fantastic, I thought.

You're a wonderful writer, this was brilliant! Happy holidays ;)

Review #4, by Singularity (1)

8th December 2012:
This is a really interesting take to Ginny in DH. It's a lot different from the way she is normally portrayed, at least in my experience. I've seen (and written) stories where Harry blames himself for all the deaths and trouble caused by the battle, but I don't think that I've ever seen one where Ginny blames him. It kind of caught me off guard and made me a bit sad :(

I can see it, though. Ginny is a very passionate person who feels things deeply. She was really hurt by Harry leaving and now she has lost her brother. I'm glad that by the end, she admits to herself how much she does care about Harry and how much she still wants to be with him.

As a songfic, I think you did a good job. The sections between lyrics are a nice length, and the song fits with the story well.

Author's Response: I'm sorry for making you sad! This story just kind of strolled into my head, and the idea of an angsty, angry Ginny really appealed to me!

And thank you :) It was my first attempt at a song-fic, so I'm glad you liked it :)

Great one shot :D You've done Ginny's emotional side perfectly and plus its a Harry/Ginny fic so its bound to be good :D 10/10 from me :D

Author's Response: Thank you so much :D I know! Harry/Ginny is my all time favourite ship! It was the most angsty thing I had ever written, so I was a bit worried I'd gone overboard, but your lovely review has reassured me :) Thank you so much :D

Review #6, by teh tarik (1)

I think it went great :)

I heart Ginny's emotional trajectory and character development. There is something accusatory and intense, which somehow does sort of fit into her character. At least the darker side of her. I've not come across many Ginny stories which depict so much anger, so this is a unique and fresh take on her character.

I especially love that you end the story at that moment.which is when the Death Eaters and Voldemort parade Harry's body around. This is a fantastic moment to conclude, and you couldn't have chosen better.

Another thing I particularly liked was the references to her relationship with Fred. Ginny's always been close to the twins, and your story did their relationship justice.

Thanks for writing this. Great work.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!!! :) Your review has just made my day! To be honest, I usually depict Ginny as a rather happy character, but before I wrote this I heard Adele's song Turning Tables, at the same time as I was reading the DH, and this story just kind of fell into place! Thank you for reading :)
