It's absolutely brilliant. The characters were on spot and I especially liked auntie Muriel !

Excellent story. I love the point of view of those who were left behind from the horcrux hunt.

Thankyou for writing this and sharing it with us. I loved every word and you made me cry which I didn't even do with JK's books. Please don't stop writing as you have a great talent for it :)

I have you among my favorite writers but I had not noticed this story. It is masterful. Being able to see the other point of view of the book is magnificent. Also exceptionally written. The characters are so complex that you have nothing to envy Rowling. How can you fit everything with the canon? Love the scenes of Remus and Tonks. They were enormously sad, knowing what the real ending was. Really believable. I have come to mourn, which I never did with the original books. The Weasleys are adorable. Your story leaves me wanting to read more about you. Hopefully one day I could write Alternative Universe and it left us a better taste in the mouth avoiding some deaths. Now whenever I read a story I compare it with his and I think it does not even reach the sole of the shoe. I am very sorry for your personal situation. I have a family member going through something similar. And maybe these kinds of distractions make you survive. Good luck and keep writing.

This story makes me cry every time I re-read it... it’s heart-wrenchingly beautiful, and witty, and full of joy and sadness at the same time.
Just wanted to express how wonderful it is, and what a fantastic writer you are. :)

Very enjoyable piece of work.
I like how the tone of your story progresses, just like the tone of the HP series did: starts light enough, but the mood shifts as time passes on and events unfold... Ginny grows up as the war grow stronger, and the refreshing point of view of the beginning changes into something darker, but that feels so right...
The last few chapters were heart-wrenching. The characters' reactions to loss are terribly well-written. Ginny telling George had me crying, reading about how they go through their grief was disturbingly familiar, the day at the beach hurt - it's rather unusual to find such acuracy reading about grief in fanfiction, I hope for you it comes from maturity and not from experience.
Thank you for sharing this story, it was definitely worth reading :)

This is one of the two best stories on this site, really well done. Oh my heart at the last few chapters. Perfect ending for the story, I wish Rowling had put that ending in place of the canon deathly hallows one. 10/10
| Vincent FGS91 chapter 30 . 8/18
Never do stray far from your stories, do I? :-) War, though. Terrible thing...
| Sharklove9999 chapter 35 . 8/17
Brilliant writing with the gaps filled, such a well written story from a character that could be difficult to write. Can’t say it in words... but Hagrid would call it ruddy brilliant!

Always going back to your writings for the amazingness and just...this is an un-thought out comment, but yeah, xD
| Guest chapter 9 . 8/2
Lol it’s wishful thinking to think Ginny’s figured out the connection between a children’s book Dumbledore left Hermione and the deathly hallows when it took Harry and Hermione months even with more info to come to the conclusion.
| Myricle chapter 35 . 7/28
Brilliant story. I'm just devouring your stuff at the moment. It feels like everything is in a shared universe, and it all seems like stuff that could have happened in canon. Nice work!

I came across a recommendation for this on Buzzfeed and I'm so glad I did - it doesn't fall within the scope of fanfics I usually read. This I think is the best fanfiction I have ever read - because it didn't seem like fanfiction. You got the characters spot on and it was actually like reading JK's work. I do hope you branch out in your writing because you have a real gift for it and your work is a pleasure to read. In one of your author's notes you mentioned criticisms on other sites, take them with a pinch of salt. You took familiar characters and a timeframe we knew the ending of and made it seem fresh and new. Well done.

This was incredible! I bawled almost more than I did in the actual book, so thats saying something!
| HPuni101 chapter 35 . 7/11
Loved this story. Very well-written and felt like the real thing. You capture the cannon characters beautifully..am now on the hunt again for more Harry and Ginny stories. I noticed quite a few minor grammar errors though...the ones that were most notable in the early chapters were the use of; 'i' and '/i' appearing randomly, it was just a little distracting. All in all a very enjoyable read. Thanks so much for sharing. Best wishes.
