Chapter: A Difficult Choice

i wish there were more stories like this one. people glorify the whole hogwarts thing but in actuality it is deffinitly still a school with hormonal teenagers and things like this happen. i applaud you. this story was fantastic and i really hope more people write things like this one. this is the only pregnancy scare fanfic that i have found on mugglenet.

I think this story needs a little more to it, probably another 2 chapters or so, you could explain the stress ginny goes trough, and how Hermione helps her through it. Even though I am against abortion, no matter what happens, it's still around me. But still I stand with the decision that you should writes a couple more chapters. If you need help, e-mail me at

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I appreciate the comments. I meant for this story to be open. I didn't really want to finish it neatly, which is what more chapters would do. Thanks!

Author's Response: Please keep your horribly crude comments to yourself. You obviously are not mature enough to grasp the complexity of this story.

This was a great one-shot! I loved it. The emotion was portrayed quite well, and I really think you did a great job on it! Keep writing one-shots! It's what you seem to be best at!

i like it! its kinda like a normal muggle type story but relates to harry potter

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked the story. There is a reason it is like a normal muggle type story. This was an assignment for the DADA class in which we were instructed to take a situation from our life in which we had to make a moral decision and then translate it into the HPverse. I was in Hermione's position. Thanks so much for the review!

This is INTENSE! I loved it though. I REALLY want to read more! You should write another chapter! I mean is she REALLY pregnant or is she not? I want to know! Thanks for the wicked story! Wish I could read more!

Author's Response: I am really glad you enjoyed it, but it doesn't matter if Ginny is pregnant or not. That wasn't the point of the story. I will not be adding anything to this story. Thanks for the review.

Thank you for a very well written, well thought out story you've presented us my dear. I know that many people where discouraged by this peice, it's difficult material, but I think you handled it magnificently. I think the emotions were excellently portrayed, and although many are upset by Ginny's characterization, I could see both girls behaving this way if a situation like this occured. The fact that Hermione put away her own ideals for the love and support of her friend is specifically telling. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much Amanda. This was a story I knew that many would struggle with. I struggled with it myself. It wasn't an easy piece to write but I am quite pleased with the final product. Hermione is a stickler for the rules but when it comes to helping her friends she will do anything. I think she was perfect for the part she played. Thanks so much for the kind words and for taking the time to review Amanda!

Chapter: A Difficult Choice

o_O...Wait so what just happened in the end there? you werent really clear did she get an abortion and this was afterwards the Hermonie was comforting her...or what? bad ending it was confusing you need to have other ppl read youre story just because you get something doesnt mean other ppl will.

Author's Response: I'm sorry you thought the ending was confusing. I had a beta for this story and I had some friends read this story and none of them thought the ending was confusing. I never submit a story without having a beta go through it. I went through five drafts of this story with my beta. I don't really see how it could be confusing. If there was a time change I would have indicated such in my word choice. I left the pregnancy open ended on purpose. We don't know if Ginny got the abortion or even if she was pregnant.

Very good. Too bad it's finished, though. i would definitely be interested to see the outcome of story. Poor girls, that must be an awful situation to be in.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I might add to this, I'm honestly not sure. Though, as I've said before, this would be the ending. I tried writing a conclusion that lets the reader knows what happened to Ginny, but it just took away from the emotion of the story. Thanks for taking the time to review!

Chapter: A Difficult Choice

Awww...that's so real. I could visualize it perfectly. And it does happen to so many poor girls. The emotions of Ginny and Hermione were absolutely perfect. But poor Ginny...she slept with Dean, eek!
I really enjoyed it; and I don't blame Ginny for wanting to stay in school. I respect her for telling Hermione what is wrong. Poor Ginny--Harry needs to get a move on! :P

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed it and could sympathize with both girls. I was a little worried I hadn't put enough focus on Ginny, but your review makes me think otherwise. Thanks for taking the time to review!

Chapter: A Difficult Choice

I, like Peri, clicked on your pretty banner to get here.

Anyways, it was a wonderful fic, Amy! I've had a family member that got pregnant when she was a teenager, and I have to agree with you that Ginny was NOT too emotional. I think she was just right :D Considering that she's still in the shock period, and not in the "Oh, CRAP!" one.

Just curious, what's the time of this fic? Before or after HBP? At first I thought before, but then when you mentioned Harry I got a bit confused... Anyways, great story!

Author's Response: Thanks Jordan! This takes place during HBP, right after Ginny and Dean break up. This actually provided the perfect time period, because the same thing happened to Ginny's real life counterpart. She had just broken up with one boyfriend (Dean) and was talking/thinking about the other (Harry). Harry and Ginny have not yet had their first kiss after the Quidditch game. This is sometime in between the break up and that time. Thank you so much for taking the time to review! The muse loves them.

Hey Amy! Interesting story, very original choice of topic (you don't see much teen pregnancy in the wizarding world, and it being with Dean was even more surprising). I found the last two paragraphs a touch confusing. Somehow it sounded like Hermione was going to abort the baby herself or something (maybe I just read it wrong...). Otherwise, lovely job, very powerful fic!

Author's Response: Ashley, thank you! Deciding to write this was difficult. I was afraid it would be too much for some people. I reread the last two paragraphs and can see where it could be a bit confusing. I was trying to get across how hard of a decision this was for Hermione as well. She is going against her beliefs/morals in order to provide much needed support for a friend. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for taking the time to review!

Chapter: A Difficult Choice

what gave you this idea? just curious, it seems ginny gets to emotional about herr baby , but it is ok.

Author's Response: This was an assignment for the DADA: Newt summer school course on the MNFF beta boards. The assignment was to take a situation that required a moral decision from your life and translate it into the HPverse. I don't agree that Ginny gets too emotional. Having actually experienced this first hand, Ginny is no where near as emotional as her counterpart in real life was. Remember, that Ginny is 15 here. She is still a baby herself and is now faced with the decision to keep or abort her unborn child. If this had been written from Ginny's POV, much more emotion would have come through. I decided that the focus should be on Hermione, and therefore Ginny needed to be calmer than she normally would be.

That was really, really lovely Amy! You took a really difficult topic and really let us see the conflict and emotional dilema that both girls underwent.
I love how, even though it is Ginny's problem, we see Hermione's thoughts about it and the sacrifice she is willing to take to help her friend.
I thought both girls were fabulously in character, and your word choice was stunning - I could really here both girl's voices coming through the text.
Overall my favourite line was the 'I'm going to kill my baby'. It really heightened the emotion within the story and was quite a shocking line to read as the reader. (Knowing the backstory to this line makes it even more powerful as well, my love!)
Overall, wonderful fic, Amy! I love it!

Author's Response: Thanks Rhi! I am very glad to hear that the internal conflict comes through. It was tough separating myself from this situation and writing about it not from my POV but from Hermione's. That line really brought it home for me too. I contemplated taking it out, but am glad I left it in. It really makes an impact on how hard a decision Ginny and Hermione have had to make. Thank you so much, dear! Thanks for taking the time to review!

Yes, I clickied on your prettiful banner to get here.

This, m'dear, had got to be one of the most original fics that I've read. What appeals to me the most is that throughout this whole thing, only one subject is introduces. In many one-shots, various things happen. It's very interesting that you've focused on one scene rather than a series of events.

I would have liked to know what Ginny did and how things turned out, but you leaving this at such an ending makes it all the better.

Wonderful job!

Author's Response: Anna, coming from you, that means so much! One of the most original? Thats a hard feat to accomplish these days. Thank you very much. I thought that by focusing on one scene it would make the entire story stronger and more powerful. I tried to write a conclusion that explains what happened but it really ruined everything before it, so I left it out. Thank you so much for taking the time to review and for your kind words!!

Poor Ginny. I like how this is a friendship fic, but has such an angsty touch. The last paragraph kind of confused me. Ginny didn't already get the abortion, did she? I mean, that wouldn't make sense with the last sentence, would it? Oh well. That's probably just me. I hope Ginny isn't pregnant. :D

p.s. Are you going to continue this fic?

Author's Response: We don't know if Ginny got the abortion or not, or even if she was pregnant. I left that out on purpose. The focus is on the moral decision that Hermione (and to some extent Ginny) has to make. I might continue this, but I would add chapters that come before what I already have posted. Thanks for taking the time to review!
