Chapter: Realising the truth

wow. this seems like it'll be really good! i thought the ending was awesome, because the feeling was totally right. i also think this is a topic that people can actually relate to a bit more than fighting voldemort or something. it's so sad to see ginny like that though!

Author's Response: I know what you mean about being able to relate to it. Even if you haven't suffered an eating disorder everyone at some point has felt like they just don't compare to others. Thanks for reading.

Chapter: The Right Path To Choose

Oh gosh!
I'm a freak about people being obsessed with thin-ness, so thank you SO much for writing a fic about it!
I think it's great so far, by the way...

Author's Response: If you are the only person that learns something from this I will be happy. I really wanted to educate readers with this so it's wonderful to know that you have recognised that you find yourself obsessed by it, because once you know that you'll know when you really have got in too deep.
Thank you for reading and reviewing. emma x x x

Another fabulous chapter, my dear Emma. I really love this story, and I hope that Ginny finds some light in her awful journey of Anorexia soon. Keep up the amazing work, m'dear, and I'll keep reading. ;) *loves*

Author's Response: Thank you very much. You'll be glad to know that this is the first fic that I actually really really have my heart in. I have a plan written and everything. I am definitely going to get this one finished, which is strange for me.
Thanks for sticking with it. Ginny thanks you for being there for her.

Ooh. The plot thickens. I have a few comments on your otherwise thouroughly excellent chapter.

So, Ginny was in the Hospital Wing and nobody noticed how anorexic she was? It seems a tad unrealistic to me.

The dialouge seemed rushed to me, except for Ginny's speech, which I rather liked. It was very poignant.

Oh, and another great thing- the last line. Really chilling.


Author's Response: Ginny doesn't look like she's anorexic. She is skinny but alot of sixteen year olds are. The only person who has noticed anoything is Luna but she notices everything, remember the wedding and she knew who harry was? She's taking six subjects, she's quidditch captain, and there's a war going on, to everyone else it just looks like she is stressed. Also I decided that anorexia was not such an issue in the wizarding world, so it wouldn't occure to madam Pomfrey to be concerned about it.
As for dialogue. I always end up overdoing... Perhaps I decided to down play it and it ended up rushed... I'm sure one day I'll be able to get the balance right.
Thanks for reading. emma x x

Chapter: Silly Girls

This is a really interesting idea. This is the first fic I've read that addresses this problem. It’s an interesting point of view. Ginny's behavior does seem a little over the edge, but I suppose that is only because she has fallen prey to an obsession. The only thing that I did find to be a little exaggerated was the way she immediately reacted to Harry's words (about the break-up); I mean, it would seem a little more natural if she half-believed Harry, but wanted to look better so he would see no other way than to come back to her, rather than not believing him at all and all of a sudden opening her eyes and seeing herself as fat.
Your story is wonderfully written. I particularly like the way Ginny interacts with the other characters, the way she progressively gets unhappier and more irritable. I can’t wait to see how she’ll react when someone gets really concerned. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: I do agree with what you are saying about how Ginny suddenly seemed to not believe Harry and I think it is a little over exagerated, like you said, but there are other aspects that have had an effect on her: It's the beginning of a war, and she has a huge family and lots of others she knows who are going to be at the heart of it, that is naturally terrifying; Dumbledore's death, althought she never really had any communication with him, if any important figure dies it is devistating, all these things are happening around her and she has no way of controling it, anorexia is her way of controlling something.

Wow, this is a really good story.

I am ashamed to admit it but I can relate to some of this. I was in a bad patch a few years back...

Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. And it is definately nothing to be ashamed of, I think it is an amazing thing that you had the courage and strenth to break free of it as so many don't.
thanks again. emma x xx

Chapter: Silly Girls

Oh bugger, is that the reason she wants Harry to live? I really hope she gets some sense knocked into her soon, a sees what she's become! Only wanting Harry to live so she can show him how much greater she can be, not cuz of her love for him? (well I guess it's a distorted version of love but still...) That was a nice line, it really shows what she has brainwashed herself to become. I'm glad Professor Fawn is pretty observant and intelligent though, I think she'll help Ginny heaps. I can't wait for more!

Author's Response: I do think that the scariest thing is that Ginny sees this as totally normal. Thanks for reading and reviewing. Next chapter may be a while, so I will appoligise now for the wait. emma x x x

I really like this story. Eating disorders are something I feel particularly strongly about and I think you are portraying it fairly well. I'm not sure Ginny Weasley would react this way to being dumped, but it's true some girls probably do.
Looking forward to your next chaper.

Author's Response: I have got a long explaination as to why I chose Ginny in one of the early reviews, whether you agree with me or not is a different matter, but I am glad I chose Ginny. Thank you for reading and reviewing. emma x xx

o and Ginny needs a grip over harry thinks every girl is fat he sees..well some could be...

Author's Response: This is the point. It's not only Ginny's perspective of herself that's distored. Things that people are saying and doing are the same. She can't work out what the real reason behind things are.

Chapter: No Reason To Stop

Your story really shows the ways of what could and might happen to you if you stop eating...this story proves well that if you see your friend of family looking to thin you should act now a help them...awsome story!

Author's Response: Just because someone is thin doesn't mean that they are anorexic or is suffering anysort of disorder with food. The chances are they are perfectly healthy. I personally think that the media's emphasis that everyone that is skinny is anorexic only makes the matter worse because it makes eating disorders seem more common than they are, which impacts on how people react if someone does turn out to be suffering from one. Of course it's better to make sure someone is fine than to just ignore it, but jumping to conclusions is likely just to cause more problems.

I love this already. I'm exhausted at the moment, so I'll probably finish it in the morning, but judging by the awesomeness of it I might finish it tonight.

Author's Response: I always do that. It probably is a big contributer to why I am always tired.

The story is coming along real well Emma. And here is some advice. A piece of writing is never bad, its the feelings you put into it that make it good. Your doing a marvelous job. Any one who is a fan of this story, should recruit more people to read this.
