I really liked the story and how it ended with Harry's 'dead' body coming out of the forest. The characters were really well written, I could understand who was who. You should write a sequel about when Ginny finds out Harry is alive, I think you'd be able to catch her emotions really well. Great story!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I hadn't originally conceived of a sequel because I thoguht the pacing worked best if Ginny believed Harry was dead at the end, but it's something to think about. ~ Megan
Firstly- thank goodness it didn't end here...
Then- This is outstanding. It's paced just right, and the second person perspective gives just the right insight into her character... I love a Ginny who understands Harry. Well she'd have had to I guess because he's not great at explaining his feelings ;P Anyway... I also like the use of the third person pronouns for everyone throughout. Its a bit hard to get used to at the beginning, but it does remind you of exactly how she'd be thinking, and it makes it seem almost to jump, as her thoughts would. Congratulations! xxx
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm a big believer in that JKR intends Ginny to know Harry almost better than he knows himself; he's not good at showing his feelings, so she'd have to be able to tell without him speaking. I got caught up in all the pronouns and thought to revert to names at some point, but I felt that the night would be so chaotic that names wouldn't have a chance to register before things changed again. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. ~ Megan
Good thing it doesn't end here.
Author's Response: I agree. Thank you for reading the story. ~ Megan
This was... wow. The second person perspective gave it such depth, and the pace of it was perfect, I imagined it to mirror her heartbeat, constantly pounding until the final lines when it slows down. Truly heartbreaking, and if it wasn't for the fact we know what happens next I honestly think this would break my heart irreparably. Ginny is perfect, knows Harry better than he knows himself, which is exactly how I've always seen her. Really this was superb!
Author's Response: Thank you! I always felt that JKR intended Ginny to know Harry better than he knew himself. No girl would be a good enough match for him if she couldn't read him so well. I'm glad the pacing came through; I saw the whole evening as flying by so quickly that only the frightful moments (like Fred's death, clearing the battlefield, and so on) were ones that made Ginny stop and take notice. And Harry's death - even for the short time he's "dead" - kills her. I saw that moment as the end of her world, even though we know it turns out all right in the end. ~Megan
