Wow. I'm basically speechless. I don't want to use the word beautiful, because some of the images you created certainly weren't, but it's the first word that comes to mind. The strength of her friends, I think, is where it's coming from. I can understand the pain Ginny was going through, and I can understand why she wanted to hurt herself for it. I really felt for her. And then for her to be so lucky, to have people who cared for her. I really think you got her relationships with them all just right. The ending was perfect, as well. We all need something to believe in. Wonderful story.
Perfect. The whole story made me feel like I was floting above them and watched what happened. My eyes where stinging when Ron called Ginny little queen. It was truly beautiful.
it was really sad at the beginning but every thing turned out alright. the story gives a few really good messages to people.
it started off being really dark and painful but it had a satisfying ending. I really like the last line. I think you handled the subject well and the characters were all really well written. But you're a mod, so what did I expect? :)
This is really good!! It's VERY well-written... I especially like the line: "Regardless of what God, or Gods, they worship, or even if they don't," whispered Luna dreamily, "everyone prays.". Oh, so awesome!!
I am almost left speechless, but not quite because I think this deserves a review. You have talent... but this is more. Thank-you for the grace with which you handled such a difficult topic. Thank-you for making me stop and think. "Wow" and "Amazing" may be trite, but they describe your writing so well.
Wow! I'm speechless. This story got to me, probably because I've been through something similiar... Anyway, the wording and feelings Ginny expressed were perfect. Very well summed up. This was my favorite line: They could move past the pain, and suffering, and tomorrow, they would wake with smiles on their faces. Great work, once again! And though I am not religious, I think it gave a good message that even if you are Agnostic, Atheist, Baptist, whatever! There's always something you'll believe in, no matter if it's religiously affiliated or not.
that was very powerful. i espcecially felt the part where she cut herself for each person she wasn't good enough for... a strong metaphor. excellent work, seren.
Hey, Awesome fic. I'm crying right now..it was very natural. The beginning I thought was really strong and the middle part seemed a bit cheesy and could've been made better, but it was still good. I've got a question. Was this based on personal experiences or from the experiences of someone whose close to you? It just seemed like you were really into it and knew what you were talking about rather than making it up..Anyway, let me know(e-mail), if you don't mind sharing..awesome fic! Keep it up!
You are a natural girl!!! Brilliant!!! Rating: 10
You write really well, and I love the story. It definitely puts things in a completely different and unique perspective, but it's good. And even though I'm not strong in my belief in a god, I really really liked the ending. Good job!
Hi there, what an awesome story. It's really dark, like the latest HP books have been, and i really like that. I really like the way you vary your language, and your choice of words are perfect. The story seems great so far, but it's hard to tell since it's the first chapter. The only thing i find a bit strange, is that the characters don't go looking for help, i can imagine that Neville would. Maybe it would make it exciting if one of them made it slip to someone from slytherin that Ginny is battleling with monsters in her own head. Great story tho, i would have given you 10, but the story needs a little more action. But okay, it's only the first chapter, keep it up:) - Alse
Author's Response: Erm... it's the only chapter.
As to why no one skitted off to get help - one, it would destroy the point of the story, and two, would Ginny have actually talked to them? Probably not. I merely gave her the people who would be there for her most.
