Chapter: Going Under

This was sad. Really, really sad. So um...good job? It would have sucked so much if Harry had died, most of all for Ginny. I would have gone into a depression! Are you going to continue this? It'll make me more sad, cuz Harry won't be coming back...! *weeps softly*

Author's Response: Thanks! For some reason, I really wanted Harry to die, so I tend to kill him off . . . a LOT.

I think I'm just going to leave this as it stands, though, because I kind of like the way I ended it. But who knows? Maybe in the future I'll write a companion one-shot, or something. (Probably not, though.)

i love it...i cried when she thought about never listening to his heart beat again and all that. it was really sad but really truthful. If you lose somebody you truly love you don't get over it a week later. i think the idea of harry dying was a possibility in book seven , we all knew it, but i don't think we would have been ready for it if he really would have died....

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really sorry I made you cry, though. . . me no likie making people cry.

Losing a loved one is always hard, and people cope with it in different ways. Ginny, in my mind, goes into a black hole of depression. ^^;

Thanks for the review!

Ooh, Katie! Squee!

It's okay, Harry is fun to kill. In a lot of my fics (that I don't submit), I do bad things to him just to see what he'll do.

Y'know, if I could change one thing about DH, I would have killed Harry. So this was like, ooh-tastic.

You wrote Ginny's greif well. It was realistic, moving, and dark. The thoughts running through her head caught my attention; the alchohol is well placed and well used. Overall, teh fantasticness.

My only complaint is that things moved a little quickly. Ginny went from near-suicidal to calm acceptance in a few moments. But, you handled it cooly.

:D :D :D

Angst, angst, Katie writes good angst.


Author's Response: STUBBY! Ooh, thank you ever so much! I would have killed Harry in DH too, had I the chance. . . .

Ah, yeah, it might have moved a little quickly. But she'd been wallowing in depression for six months, so it was about time she got calm again, eh?

I'm glad you think I write good angst! This is my first D/A fic, so hearing something like that makes me grin evilly. . . . Thanks again for such a great review! ^_^

:D I was looking at the MNFF front page and saw that it got validated! :) I like stories where Harry dies as I wish I did happen in canon...maybe I'm just morbid. :P

Anyway, I think you did well with the edits. :) *hugs*


Author's Response: Nah, I wanted Harry to die in canon, too. *ish ebil*

Thanks, Tash! Without your superb beta-ing skills, this wouldn't have been HALF as good. ^_^

Very well written! I loved this line: "The last tear fell, and she broke the surface of the water that was her sanity."
Poor Ginny!

Author's Response: Thanks! I was trying to make it sound like the closer she got to the surface of the water, the more sane she became. . . not sure if that came out too clearly. Poor Ginny, indeed.

Katie, you're more like me than you think you are. I also kill off Harry in my stories (very) frequently, but none of them were as powerful as this story. Awesome job, hon. Keep up the good work! xxvictoria

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much, Victoria! I doubt I'm a better author than you, but I appreciate the compliments all the same. ^_~

*tears* wow killing Harry.....*shocks* but strangely i LOVED IT! that was would be crying if J.K.Rowling..really did kill him......i want more!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I've written some poems where Harry's dead, but I'm not sure I'm going to expand any more on this one-shot. I'm really glad you liked it, though!
