Review #1, by celadon Never Forget

1st January 2014:
Hi! I'm here to review your entry for my challenge (finally!)
This was such a sweet story that I couldn't help smiling at my computer screen. Which led to my mother shooting me rather suspicious looks, but hey it was totally worth it.

I'm a pretty big cannon nazi so when I saw that you were writing a Harry/Ginny story I jumped for joy. In all honesty, writing a Hinny (gah, I hate that word) story is rather tricky. Especially a Post War one. They are both broken people with a lot on their shoulders. A writer is forced to take this into account while moulding their future personalities. It's nice to see them so happy in this story.

I think that your characterization was brilliant. You captured Harry's ability to overthink everything, his nervousness, his excitement and his short temper.The line "Facing the dragon from the Triwizard Tournament seemed preferable to having to face rejection." was so apt to portray Harry's worry if Ginny won't accept (although honestly Harry, she's been your girlfriend when the two of you faced a War. You practically died in that War. Marriage seems pretty redundant at this point)

I like how anxious he is to get everything perfect is so adorable. There should be more Harrys in this world ;)

Ginny seems like the perfect counterpart. She's so grounded and never takes nonsense from anyone. She's not afraid to speak her mind. Yet, she also has quite a romantic side to her. I think that you used the quote to perfectly portray her character, which is a rather interesting and appreciated way to use a quote.

Ah, Ron is a lovely comic relief to all the mushiness. I probably snickered ten times during his bit (again earning a suspicious look from my mother. Sigh, I count the days until I get a room of my own). I can totally imagine him just posing Hermione the question. His obtuseness is so funny.

Including George as another secondary character also help file the story out, giving it a bit more depth. I'm glad that George seems to be coping after Fred's death. Being able to run the joke shop is a sure sign of this.

Poor Harry. The date just seemed to be proving Murphy's Law over and over again. i guess it goes to show that no matter how hard one tries to perfect something, there are always things that can go wrong. And sometimes, the things that go wrong make the situation much better. It showed that Ginny loved Harry for who he was and no bad date could change that. Life is a roller coaster. There are going to be ups and downs, litmus tests to see who is worth your time. Ginny and Harry's love seem to surpass any obstacle.

Overall this was a very warm and fuzzy story to read, especially when I was in need of some light-reading. I really enjoyed the motto of your story. Good Luck and Happy New Year!
