Great story, and I'm forever grateful that you did not inflict the name 'Sirius James' on the poor kid.
| Reader-anonymous-writer chapter 17 . 8/10/2011
Desperate for the information in the library not to fall into the hands of Voldemort and his army - Didn't he have access to all this information as student? Doesn't he have a lot of Death Eaters' students at school who could have got pieces of information for him whenever he asked?
The thought of the traitor and how he had betrayed them at the last minute - What do you mean? If you are about Dumbledore's death, Dumbledore asked him to do it, and he was already dying from a curse on the Resurrection Stone. I don't like when Severus Snape is portrayed as traitor, for whatever reason. He is not stupid, greedy or subservient; he doesn't enjoy torturing others or being tortured; he doesn't like war and wants it to end. Whatever side he is on, Dark, Light, Harry's, his own, he doesn't change it unless something life-changing, unusual, important happens.
Ginny, you're a basket case with a one-track mind. Look, there's still the whole time paradox thing and the universe ceasing to exist problem, even if I do help you.
I don't like fun.
Now, Ginny is about to go to Hogwarts. Don't forget about the diary! Don't write into it, but find a way to destroy it. Say, give it to Minerva with confused question: what is it and how did it get into my textbooks? Or just 'forget' it close to the Headmaster, he will feel Dark Magic from it. Just make sure nobody else picks it up; like, put a tracking charm onto it.
Why is Harry in the Burrow? I thought he will meet the Weasleys at the train station. Ah, this was year ago. Now it's flying car's accident. Don't allow Ron and Harry to get to Hogwarts on this car! Thank you.
I heard a noise like… - Almost caught Apparating Ginny.
Good idea about putting diary inside lead. And ring, too. About bones: prudent, but you could have switched them with somebody's else, to make it less apparent.
Now that's something Godric would have said.
And diadem. And three are destroyed by fire, while Nagini killed.
because as I understand it, receiving the Dark Mark must be done willingly - And what about the cases when fathers forced sons to join, or people joined under threat of family's death?
You are prejudiced against Death Eaters, pure-bloods, Slytherins, Malfoys. First, is it possible at all to dispose of the Death Eater's attire? Second, why are you sure that a person cannot be tricked/forced/blackmailed into taking the Dark Mark?
I'm glad Umbridge is arrested, but I cannot believe that Malfoy wasn't prepared to Veritaserum. Occlumency, memory charms, something else should be possible to go around it.
Disillusionment was a seventh year spell, so that left only one person in the room - besides her - capable of doing that. - You think Professor Snape did it? I don't think so. First, purebloods study magic before Hogwarts. Second, somebody could have used Harry's Cloak.
Even if Draco is a bully, there is no need for Harry to become a bully. Ginny surely looks like a bully, but then, she has come from a war.
That reminded her that there was still a very large snake under the castle. She was going to have to deal with that soon. - No need to deal with that. No snake speaker is going to free it. And it's heartless to kill a thousand-years old basilisk just because it killed accidentally Myrtle and petrified some others.
as serious as a heart attack
He is a superb Potions master, but he isn't a good teacher, especially when he is forced to teach.
she enjoyed the predicament she had put the Headmaster in - I enjoy it, too.
The bloody bastard - I really hope you speak about Lockhart. If you speak so ungratefully about Professor Snape, I'm not surprised he dislikes teaching.
You should have put this black cobra to attack Lockhard, not Professor Snape. Though Professor Snape may be glad he is forced out of Hogwarts: he will not have to teach, and he might leave the position of double-agent and conduct potions research in peace.
You have purposefully allowed students to be physically and emotionally harmed. - I have never heard of students dying under Professor Snape's supervision, despite dangers of potions during at least ten years of teaching, despite idiotical pairing of Slytherins and Gryffindors in one room.
And nothing has stopped you or caused the Headmaster to stop you. - Blame the Headmaster, not his pawns.
I'm glad you give Professor Snape a chance, and disappointed that he will have to stay a spy, if Voldemort returns.
Then McGonagall had shown up in a few classes and stood at the back of the room. She never said anything, but she was there watching. - To be more impartial, it would have been better if she was Disillusioned.
Snape's eyebrows were at the top of his forehead.
Severus Snape is no coward.
I make it nineteen yards, a bloody fifty-seven feet.
there was definitely an edge to him that was hard to identify. - He is angry about danger to students.
monotone - Professor Snape was probably aware of the danger of the topic, he is perceptive when he wants to be.
I'm glad Ginny includes Percy.
And that you include some Slytherins.
I hope Ginny wears the necklace during the conversation with Dumbledore.
Cannot you just ask Amelia Bones to leave a photograph of Weasleys in cell of Sirius Black?
It's unusual, Sirius is serious.
I don't like all this 'you are now rich and influential' card. With influence of Ginny and Sirius, he could grow up a bit of bully. I hope that inviting some Slytherins, like Millicent Bulstrode, to the study group, and improved feelings between Harry and Professor Snape, will prevent him from thinking that Slytherins or Death Eaters are evil by definition. I hope that somewhen Ginny and Harry share with each other that the Sorting Hat almost put them into Slytherin. It's my favorite house.
She was going to hex Sirius into next week for putting ideas into her mother's head.
Harry, have you ever thought about contacts? - Have you forgotten Professor Snape's words about a potion? I know it's not soon, and not guaranteed, but it will be better than glasses or contacts.
She swore she would prank him good one day.
and we do not bully others - How is it connected with past of Severus Snape?
But I would have all the money from that - Which would disappear quickly.
He also said they disagree on what it means. - So Dumbledore thinks Voldemort is alive?
I still think you're too close-minded.
He must be in deep denial about Voldemort really being gone, she thought. - I hope Dumbledore will not put Harry as Champion.
It's time to give up your obsession with Voldemort and let me lead my own life.
Too sweet story, good luck.

I absolutely loved this story. I love the idea of only Ginny going back it was a nice change and you did it perfectly. Congratulations on a story well written!

This is a fantastic story. Haven't seen too many Ginny-goes-back-in-time stories and even fewer good ones.
| Thaumologist chapter 17 . 5/3/2011
Loved it! Don't know why I hadn't read it before...
I enjoy re-dos, but so often they can't change much, because they have to 'maintain the timeline' or somesuch rot. But you ignored that, wrote well, and did all the aims you set out with.
However, throughout I did find myself wondering about Luna. Not only because she's one of my favorites, but also because without Ginny she has (from canon) NO friends at all.
I wouldn't be surprised if you've drawn flak over the initial statement (paraphrased) from Ginny of "Well, as a quadriplegic, what do you have to lose?", but I do get that it is an incredibly debilitating disease that lowers life quality significantly, and the majority of readers would know what it was. I didn't have any problems with it, but I could see how people could.
Overall, awesome fic. Thanks for making.

As much as I loved this story, I have one criticism. It was so outdated! It annoyed me, the way it was the boys 'choice' of the girl, I'm not on about Ginny telling Harry to choose her, but those parties, and the way her mother acted! It was as though Ginny didn't really get a choice, I know she would have chosen Harry, but in my opinion, Ginny is a very fiesty chracter and would have hated the way she was objectified! It kept nagging at me throughout the story, and turned me off the story, I did make it to the end, but I really considered just giving up! I just wonder why you chose to write the story this way.
I loved the plotline however, and it was refreshing to read a story were Ginny went back by herself.
All my love Philomena.

I've been enjoying this story a great deal. It's hard to make comments when you don't want to stop reading :-) Especially when everything is so good that all you can say is Great Chapter! I know it's nice getting a lot of reviews, but that would get repetitive if I left it as a review for each chapter.
Having said that, I'm very impressed with how you've laid out each event that is occurring. I do keep waiting for the other shoe to drop though *smirk*. Then after a few more paragraphs read, I remember that the wizarding world is full of sheeple and the only one who would question might be Dumbledore because she might interrupt some of his plans. Then again, I thought also that some of it might be explained away by the fact that she is the seventh child, and is special.
Now, back to the next chapter.

As much as I loved this story, I was not fully pleased with how you wrote Hermione, especially concidering that only reason that Ginny is smarter than her is because she's from the future. But I loved the HxG in this story it was great.

I was rereading this story and I wonder if Arthur even trust his daughter, I know that it look bad that Ginny is in Harry's room so late in the night. But when Arthur have to say that he want the truth, raise some flags in my mind. I know I would never say that I want the truth to someone I trust, I felt it show an lack of trust if I say I want the truth.
Arthur made Ginny to promises is funny, he know the promise is limited to she become of age or move out. But I have a feeling that Arthur won't have a say if he release Ginny of their promises or not, I doubt that Harry want to still live with his wife's parents.

Anyways she didn't fully think through the dementor issue- obviously guarding from Sirius would be one way to get access to a dementor, but there has got be lots of other potential ways, perhaps the easiest being something along the lines of simply talking to someone at some point.
| timunderwood9 chapter 1 . 3/6/2011
I've seen one Ginny goes back story, (something like the Flame to Spark) but while the posted stuff is reasonably good its going to involve a crossover with some comic book, (eh), and there really aren't enough. I've also seen a couple of Hermione goes back, but one wasn't good, and one was a humor fic.
I really do want to find more stuff with someone other than Harry going back (hmmm, there was a Snape fic which was good, though it involves power porn (my term for the stuff where a fully developed Harry can defeat the rest of the British wizarding community alone)).

Oooo! Is Ginny going to notice that she is becoming as bad a Dumbledore at keeping secrets? After all, she keeps telling him that she'll tell him everything in the summer. As Ginny says: "I don't want you to worry about any of it." That's the same sort of thing Dumbledore does. Keeping their cards close to the chest. We shall see... ::presses the NEXT button::

Thank you for sharing your story.
| Binka Fudge chapter 17 . 1/29/2011
Just thought I'd let you know that I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. I think it's my favourite time travel fic and as I read quite a lot of those, that's really saying something. I'm also glad that I was in the mood for a complete story today, if I'd come across this in the 'in progress' section I think the suspense would've killed me. It was a welcome change to find a story in which Ginny was the main character, particularly one as well written as this, I often feel like her great potential was wasted in canon and I'm afraid that bleed into fan fiction in a lot of cases. I do hope you are still writing, it would be a real shame to hide a gift as great as yours. Thank you.

I have to say that you are my favorite author fanfic or not. you have a way of dragging me into your charactors lives that sadly most authors do not so please keep up the good work
