I love it. I usually stay away from Harry/Ginny but I'm really glad I read this! I listened to Far Away while reading and it made the story seem so real. Keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Thank you!

Aww! This is a fantastic piece of work, it made my stomach squirm and do flip-flops. That song was great to go to this fic. Great job! I'd love to see more H/G fics from you :)

This was so inventive. I love that song and the way you put it into the story was simplely amazing. I liked the way you had Ginny describe Harry, the fact that he nolonger held the boyish looks he once did. Most people tend to use the same way to decribe Harry over and over again, forgetting to make him somehow appear older in his features. I've had trouble with it as well. But you hit it right on the mark. Great Job.

Author's Response: Thank you! :D

I like the way you write Ginny Weasley, which is saying something, since Iím not a fan of her character. Her emotions and thoughts when Harry came back to the Burrow were accurate for her personality. I like how there is a slight awkwardness between them, but Ginny doesnít completely fall apart over Harry returning. She doesnít get overly upset, angry, or smitten with him, but she still is aware of him and how heís changed. Her characterization for this situation was handled very well. You seem to have an understanding of Ginny that I donít see too often.

One thing that I love about your song fics is how you place the lyrics into them. You always have such creative ways of using them, and I find myself actually reading them instead of skipping over them like I do with some song fics. I like how you have them interact with the characters. You actually make them part of the story and the lyrics seem to relate to the characters better this way. I do enjoy this song, and I have to say it worked well with the scene and the ship you used. While I never pictured Harry being much of a poet, I like the creativity you have.

I have a couple of nitpicks and suggestionsÖ

The last time she had seen him was at her brothers wedding.

You need an apostrophe in Ďbrothersí.

My only constructive criticism would be to pay attention to the description in your stories, particularly with the setting. It did seem a bit lacking in some places and the way you described the garden was a little repetitive. I think you could add a little more and change the words you use to be more diverse. For example, you could describe the night sky as Ginny watches Hedwig fly or the backyard of the Burrow where Ginny was at the beginning of the story.

However, I thought the description of Harry was good. You paid attention to his age and you added details that fit well for him getting older. It was good that you showed the change he had in his appearance from when Ginny had last seen him.

It was a very sweet story, but you didnít overdue the fluff. I really liked seeing Harry and Ginny a bit older in the story, instead of reading about their teenage hormones. It was a great scene from the Burrow, and I like how you used an idea that we see in a lot of Harry/Ginny stories, but you made it your own. You really have a lot of originality in your writing, especially with the song lyrics. I really enjoyed reading this. I almost skipped past it because Iím not really a Harry/Ginny fan, but Iím really glad I gave it a chance. You surprised me with this, Leah. Great work!

This was a very touching story. You captured perfectly the problems of long term relationships and how getting back together is the hardest but most important thing to do in a relationship. Absolutely fantastic job!

Author's Response: Aw...*blushes* Thank you!

Ooh! Leah, this is so cute. I love it! Harry is so adorable.... :D And the song is awsome!

Author's Response: Thank you! I love that song too! *swoons* *hugs*

This was so sweet. It made me tear up a little. However, I must say: I think Ginny would be stronger than to let Harry sweep her off her feet. I'd expect at least a little snap of that Weasley temper before she gave in. ;)

Even though I'm not a Harry/Ginny shipper, and the mushiness makes me a bit ill sometimes...

This story was just right. It mixes the angst and fluff in a way that's tolerable. Which, in other words, means...

Great job, love.



Author's Response: Thanks...I think. :P I heard that song and I was in mushy mood, I blame it on that! :D Thank you, Luv!

Leah my love, this is simply wonderful!

So often I see song fics and without the context of the song, the lyrics don't make much sense, or the reference is so obscure. But you really found an excellent song, and a perfect setting for it. The lyrics- though not yours obviously- are well placed. It was very clever to place them in the context of a poem.

The story was short, but very sweet. And well worth reading. I loved how you aged the characters, the physical descriptions were perfect. Like Ginny pondering Harry's shaving habbits. I love small details like that.

I am an avid Harry/Ginny shipper and I'm so pleased with the way this turned out!

*HUGS SPEW buddy*

Only a couple of things I though I ought to point out:

The last time she had seen him was at her brothers wedding.
"brothers" needs an apostrophe: brother's

It's Ron, Hermione, and Harry, Mum! Open the door!" she screamed at her mother in the kitchen as she ran down the stairs
I would actually cut "at her mother in the kitchen", it just seems to hinder the flow. It would sound just as nice if it read "...Ginny screamed as she ran down the stairs."

Author's Response: *dies* SPEW buddy! *tackle hugs* Thank you! I shall change those things! It has been a long time since I read over this one shot. *hugs and thanks again* ~Leah P.S. Leah's dear SPEW Buddy shall get her review soon! Leah's computer has been acting up and Leah's Internet stopped working. *sigh*

Really nice story! Far Away is one of my favourite songs EVER! I always imagined a Harry/Ginny fanfic written to it, and now i've read a brilliant one!

Author's Response: Aw...thank you so much! I love Far Away, the moment I heard it this fic came to mind. I'm glad you liked it!

Fantastic, I loved it. I can honestly say, I did not find one spec of text to criticise. To me, the characters were all in profile, the ships fit, (And thatís not just because of my personal preference) and to me, the song lyrics fit wonderfully into the rest of the story.

The only tiny thing I could find that didnít really fit was the category youíve placed it in. Iím not quite sure which is the prominent category Ė Harry/Ginny, or, Songfic I suppose thatís up to you and Astrofire to determine.

On that note, Iím a fan of the song, and I think that your fic really captured the feeling and thought that was associated with the song. It displayed all the main themes, of loss, lust and then at the end, Ginny Ďgot Harry back and I melted. I love that song, and now, I love this fic.

ď'Cause you know,
you know, you know Ö That I love you. I have loved you all along, and I miss you. Iíve been far away for far too long. I keep dreaming that you will be with me and that you will never go. Iíll stop breathing if I don't see you anymore."
Ē Thereís nothing wrong with this! Donít fret! I just love this line, is all, and I thought that you incorporated the last strains into the dialogue and description very well. So, once again, a wonderful story. Well done.

Author's Response: *giggles* Thank you my favourite Ravenclaw...sorry to all hearts just broken. *giggles* Thank you for the great review! G'day mate! ;)
