Woah. That was different! But cool... I like your portrayal of Harry's life "after everything is over". You're right, I don't think life will be perfect for him! And your writing style as well as the whole tone of the story were very original and clever. Harry really stayed IC! I really enjoyed reading this fic!

What great story. So full of emotions. I felt like I had a window into Harry's soul for a brief moment, with all his true feelings shining through, not hampered or clouded by his attempts at a normal life.

That was a good way of seeing it. I know what Harry meant by saying, empty. Sometimes it's hard to be too happy. I like how you got that point across. And I could see how Ginny would want to talk about happy things instead of the war. Good way of putting that too. I liked the story a lot, and it's a great one-shot. Thanks for writing it! ~HStarRunner23

Well, first review! I did like the way you set the story up. Very nice, well written, and unique. There was a little bit of humor in the beginning, with the introduction and whatnot, which I liked as well. Now, although it’s understandable that the war would change everyone a bit, I found some OOCness that upset me nonetheless. I highly doubt that Harry and Hermione ever discussed magical theory for hours. Although he does appreciate magic more, Harry is just about as academically uninclined as Ron is. I'm not saying he's stupid, he just doesn't discuss it for fun. I did go along with the part where he lost interest in Quidditch. I have to say I was most upset about what you did to poor Ginny. Just because she was popular in Hogwarts does not make her a social climber. She is not the type to put herself first...ever. The opposition to the donation for war orphans was extremely unlike her, especially since she grew up poor. Lastly, the Muggle Liason Office is a terrible waste of Hermione's OWLs. If I remember correctly, there weren’t' a lot of prerequisites for that job. Unfortunately, I have to admit that your story sounds like the author survived the HMS Harmony disaster but simply can't admit that Ginny and Harry might be okay.
