I have never really read a fic like that. I really like that POV or at least how you write it.
I can just image what a night like that would be like. All the excitement, romance, and danger would have your adrenalin and heart pumping.
Very well done and believable!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the read and the review! I'm glad you liked the 2nd POV, it was my first venture. Thank you for trying out this type of story.
never really read one from a girls perspective before, not a good one anyways.
an excellent read, you have a talent, a spark. ;)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the read and the review! I'm glad you gave my Ginny perspective a chance. :)
Two firsts combined in one story has produced the most playful and imaginative prose. This was not just a very enjoyable read, it literally felt like the words were dancing, like . . . like there should've been a song playing and those confusing ribbons and sparkles floating across the screen as the scene played out. You know what I'm getting at, right? 'Cause that's the most confusing bit of a review I've ever given. :p
Moments is only the second second person PoV story I've read. Previously, I would have told anyone that this PoV was confusing and just not enjoyable. I don't like the use of 'you' and usually I just get the feel that the form restricts the story from being told. Twice now that opinion has been shoved back in my face with a big, whopping "STFU" and I am only too glad to have been victim by Moments. The trail (much rather than 'train' -- a train is a big clunking thing that's awkward and lacks fluency) of thoughts along with the descriptive narrative pulled not only the scenes but the emotions together just absolutely wonderfully. As Harry and Ginny rushed from spot to spot I could—as awkwardly mentioned before—literally see them as if it was the 'aww' moment in a movie where you see the pair you want to be together finally have their moment of happiness. (Yep, still weirdly phrased. My apologies.)
Other than the fantastic prose, I think the premise for this story is just too adorable, and the choice of pairing for this premise only fits all too well. This . . .
The moment from earlier has passed, but it has transformed and blossomed into the greatest moment of your life, the one you thought would never come. He might not realize it, and it might be years before you hear it out loud, but in that moment, his eyes are telling you that he loves you.
Just . . . aw. That's all I got.
To wrap up this most unhelpful review, I just wanted to say how very, very much I enjoyed this. :]
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the incredibly lovely review! I understood what you meant, as I was going for what I hoped was a part of their relationship they never got to see. I believe that Ginny would loosen Harry up, allow him to relax, and that they would spend alot time together after hours because of studying for the OWLs. I wanted it to be playful, joyous, moving, until it hit that moment - as the title probably gave it away, lol. I'm very touched that you like it, and thank you so so much for the review!
not a big fan of 2nd person POV but this is still really good. i hate the fact that we barely got to see anything of H/G in the series. you tap into ginny really well, especially how much she understands Harry.
will there be any more missing moments??
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the read and the lovely review, especially concerning the comment on Ginny, as she is one of my favorite characters, but I sometimes find it hard to write her. I would love to add to this series in the future, though there are no definite plans yet, so the answer is...potentially? :)
I love missing moments stories, and I would have to say that this one is one of my favorites. I was irked that Harry and Ginny's relationship lasted a whole 3 pages in HBP but your story helps make up for that a little :) I also loved the 2nd person POV, very unique and well done.
Author's Response: I love missing moments as well, if you didn't guess. :) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
Wow! Very impressive
Author's Response: Well, thank you very much!
Fabulous! I could definitely read that again!
Author's Response: :) Thank you very much!
I really really like this story. It's super cute. It was good to read them doing stuff like this because it doesn't happen in the book. I also like how you did it in 2nd person. I haven't read a story like that.
Author's Response: I feel the same way, I wish we could have seen more interaction in the books as well. :) Thank you so much for reading and for the lovely review!
It's great that without using any names, we all know exactly who you're talking about. Amazing story, especially since it's in second person, and I've always been hopeless at that. I could picture everything you said, perfectly in my head. haha that rhymes.
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your review!
