This story is exceedingly tragic but beautiful at the same time... It reminds me of a film. Ever watched Somewhere in Time? I actually haven't, but I can pretty much guess what happened from the intro. I can only imagine her sadness and despair when Draco left her without knowing that she loved him. This is one of the most well-crafted stories I've ever read. Good job.
I never gave you an actual review to thank you for this lovely, wonderful story. It's delightfully haunting, just enough to seem mysterious while not being too ghost-like.
The solitary Always, when referring to the two of them being together, is kind of like a promise. An unfulfilled one, because she doesn't know why.
“What good would that have done?” he asked her in return, skirting around the answer she really wanted. Ginny stayed still. I kind of blinked at this part and tried to figure out what was meant by 'the answer she really wanted it.' It's so bittersweet and lovely, the way you wrote that.
It's so sad when he finally disappears - I can picture Ginny turning desperately around in circles, searching for something she'll never find. And the saddest part is that he does the same!
The last line of the tale really makes me feel the most for Ginny, and for her sudden realisation of her love. I love the repeated phrase 'it was only then' to capture the attention. I love it all, really. It's beautiful. Thank you again, dearest Perianna, and Merry Christmas!
Depressing. Different. Beautiful.
wow. that's so beautiful.
Author's Response: *grins* Thanks!
This was amazing!!!!! It was hard for me to contain myself at the end of the story (before the storyteller) This was really sad, really well written, and also pretty believable! 10/10!!!
Author's Response: Aww, thanks!
Oooh... That was really good. I tend to dislike the Draco/Ginny type of story, but this one is really excellent... Great work, great characterization - this was really something awesome. Bravissima!
Author's Response: Yay for being the first reviewer! It took me a good long while to write this story, I'm so happy you find it believable or at least entertaining!
