Hi, Jill. I really like this story so that I made graphics before.
12th April 2017:
Hi, Jill! Attack reviews at CTF!
I’m happy to be back to your Ginny/Seamus ship again. Though I skipped the second, but Harry and Seamus in the banner look so interesting. So exciting to read this series.
This is unexpected. You started with Seamus’ POV. I’ve never read any where he stands in front of the Burrow. You did a great job. Old boots and the rain suited him so well.
Wow, how poignant this spot is, “found her almost immediately, sitting on the sofa next to an all-too familiar looking bloke with unruly black hair.” I was very impressed.
In Ginny’s POV, you captured her irritation in the Burrow very well. I could visualize how Molly told her scoldings.
The most intriguing part is “No one understood. No one except Harry.” Did it mean Ginny confess her true feeling for Seamus to Harry? How shocking for Harry! He seemed to understand her. Yeah, Harry is a sort of person, he always wishes Ginny’s happiness.
After that you set the hot quarrel between Seamus and Ginny, which made Harry be a more solitary hero,even if you didn’t write about him in detail, I could sense it. I love it.
“I still have feelings for you, Ginny,” he whispered, reaching out and gently cupping my cheek in the palm of his hand. His touch was so warm and tender and familiar. “And now I know that you could have handled staying with me, and I feel like a bloody idiot for letting you go.” These sentences are so sad. May I call you a queen of bittersweet, Jill?
Oh, I had a slight hope when I spotted these. : It felt like a blow to the chest. I looked away, not being able to handle the unsaid accusation that I might get bored with Seamus and run back to Harry.
: Harry was a constant shadow, a constant threat looming over our relationship
: there was no doubt it meant something to Harry too
You know, I’m an earnest Hinny shipper :P
Hmmm, the last one is so sad…Seamus left Ginny. How will you develop their relationship?
Looks like you captured the flag with this story, so congratulations!
Yeah, you don't need to read all of the one-shots in order; that's what I love about this series. I tried to leave enough information in each so you knew what was going on without being confused. And Harry/Seamus is definitely interesting :P
Yes, Ginny confessed her feelings for Seamus to Harry at one point ;)
You certainly can call me the queen of bittersweet! :P I'm also the Queen of Angst, as Liz likes to refer to me as, haha! </p><p>I know you're a Hinny shipper :P If you want to know how their relationship develops, check out part 4 in the series!
Thanks for all the great reviews!
So when I was looking through the reviews I had written for you, I thought I had reviewed this, but apparently not!
I can't believe I've missed a Ginny/Seamus, and I'm here to rememdy the situation! I think I've read this though :-D One of the things I love about your stories is you write them such that they could easily be canon! And this is no less, she ends up with Harry in the end which makes all this plausable.
But the best thing about this story is that you kept us guessing till the end. I was honestly wondering how you would tie this up and if you would make it canon compliant or not. As a canon-lover I found myself conflicted on who to root for but kept wishing Seamus and Ginny would get together (Harry's presence felt unwanted!! :-P )
I'm beginning to think this is definitely Seamus' story. There's just so much emotion in this story, right from the aftermath of the war to the relationship dynamics between Ginny and Seamus, to her conversation with George... this is so well written. It makes total sense that Molly's protective nature would have doubled especially after the war - I love that idea and the effects it had on Ginny. It is all so in character.
It's been wonderful coming back to this series! Keep rocking Jill, and keep them coming <3
Hey there! Thanks so much for transferring over the reviews! <3
One of the things that's important to me - especially when writing a non-canon pairing like Ginny/Seamus - is that they stick within the realm of plausibility. I'm so glad that you thought that was the case here! And it makes me even happier to know that you were rooting for them even though you love canon.
Thank you so much for the review!
