This line made me laugh out loud! PRICELESS! As per usual, I think you portray Ginny very well. She's not sobbing all over herself and a nervous wreck over the loss of Harry, but she's also not moving on too quickly, which I like. I was a little surprised at Zabini being the one to comfort her, though he takes on many different personalities in fanfiction, and this characterization was really nice and fitting. Good job! I also really liked your personification of the wind and the feeling of Harry being near her. Strangely the only thing that seemed out of place to me was the song lyrics (though I tend to find that's the case with song fics in general, so it could just be me). Fantastic work, as always! Write more!!!
Author's Response: Thank you, Ashley, for that wonderful review. I just LOVE your reviews. I'm really glad you liked it since this was my first 'serious' fanfiction. As for the lyrics; this used to be a complete song-fic with the lyrics worked in between the text. But I decided to remove them and only keep the one's that had really inspired me to do this fic.
Wow Foxy! That was great! I've actually never read a Blaise/Ginny fic before, but yours made me wish I had sooner. The way you captured Ginny's pained emotions after Harry died was great, and although the ship isn't exactly 100% realistic, you wrote this one-shot so it sounded like it was. Loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks Jules! I'm so glad you liked it and thank you for thinking that I made the pairing seem believable. Woohoo.
I found the link to this fic on the Badger Review Circle thread. Even though I haven't got a fic of my own I'd like reviewing, something compelled me to read yours.
I'm so glad I did, as it was a wonderful story. It was very well written and full of emotion. I thought your characterization of Ginny was spot on.
I also liked the unusual coupling of Ginny and Blaise, even though its not something I'd go for it worked really well.
I loved you little touches too, like the information about Ron, Hermione, Lavender and Parvati's lives in the future.
The song fitted nicely and the imageary of the warm breeze representing Harry was beautiful.
I'd love to read the sequel when it's submitted.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for that lovely review. I'm glad you liked it and the little touches;-) So far the sequel's just in my head but I'll do my best to get it finished as soon as possible.
Anti slash Blaise was the fix I needed! I like how you portrayed Ginny the best, though, and I like how you focused more on Ginny/Harry, actually, but it's nice to see Blaise and Ginny starting a realationship. It was romantic in a friendship sort of way. :) If you know any more quality anti-slash with Blaise, let me know. He's becoming a huge favorite of mine, but everyone has their under appriciated characters.
Author's Response: I'm actually writing a sequel to this story at the moment. It's about how Blaise and Ginny's relationship progress. If you're interested I can PM you on the forum when it's finished.
Ginny/Blaise! Awesome. Well-written, too. I loved the way you made Ginny and Blaise, and the song, Great Job.
Author's Response: Thank you. Glad you liked it.
That was very nice, Foxy. I thought you captured Ginny very well and her sense of isolation in the face of all the other happy couples. The kiss was lovely at the end; just right and I liked the reference to the sun. I have to confess that I'm not a great one for song fics - the story worked very well for me without the song interspersed throughout. Good job - very interesting to see Blaise!
Author's Response: Thank you. I must admit I wasn't in to sonfic's at first, but then I heard a song that just had BLAISE written all over it and I had to give it a shot. This isn't the one though; this is sort of a prequel to the firs story I had in mind.
Author's Response: By the way; I'm really glad you liked Ginny. My BETA thinks I did a good job portraying her as well and the wonderful thing about it is, that her character comes to me naturally. I don't have to sit for hours and think: 'What would Ginny do in this situation.'
