|Reviews for How It Used to Be|
| Nubitox chapter 7 . 7/28
First off. You are a good writer. Som spelling, and some words missing. But the story flows pretty good. Though in this chapter where there is this whole mess of running away, and the secrecy around the kid. I feel that you are spot on with the whole thing with Ginny, but you kind of skipped the whole emotional bomb that should be Harry.
First of all. He thinks he did wrong by her. Fair enough. Dick move leaving, they need time to work that out.
Second. He is told he got a daughter without his knowlege. He should be angry at her for not telling. That would be justifyable rage, and maybe he would accept that without much fuss. After all she might have tought that she could not reach him. Now, by that route, he would reflect his rage onto Ron for his betrayal. After all, the guy had every possible chance to tell him.
So the realistic senario would be that either she let Ron take the fall, or she takes responsebility of the secrecy of their child. I got no impression of her having any guilt over having kept his child a secret from him either.
So while kind of sweet, Harry's side of this debacle missed passion. So my tip to you, is to go back write in some more in that part, and this story would rise another couple of ranks.
This was meant as constructiv critisism, and it is simply my view on things, and i'm hardly a pro myself, but I hope you find it helpfull..
Keep up the good work.

sweet; I'm sorry happy things got to be a family again! I am so proud of all the characters acting responsibly and reasonably - Ginny forgiving Harry, seeing the benefits of having him home, not lashing out.
I am so happy that Harry also "did things the "right" way"! Being honourable, and going -engaged - wedding - baby making. It is obvious he cares for Ginny and truly does not want to risk hardship and so does things proper. Lots of respect for that!
Maddie is so sweet!
The story itself did not have much action, in my opinion it truly was all fluff/romance. Normally I read more of a mix of high action and romance.
Thanks for writing!

I'm sorry but I find Harry selfish. To go away and stay in America for so long and two of his reasons are because he feels free and a good career. If I'm Ginny, I can forgive him but won't trust him anymore

As a new family.
Good luck with all you do.

I love your story. It is so heartbreaking, and it is not like other fanfics which normally are quite superficial. It is pretty late to be saying this, considering it has been almost four years since you published it, but your story brings tears to my eyes.
