Aww! It was very sweet of Ginny to still give Colin a kiss. I thought that you portrayed Colin very well.
Very sweet! Ginny seems to be a character we just don't know much about outside of when she was hanging out with the trio. I love the idea of her being good friends with Colin. Poor guy, wanting to go to the ball but being too young, then lining up a date and getting dumped! At least he got a kiss. Nice little 'missing moment' from GoF. Now I miss Colin. *sniff*
Aww, Jamie, this was sweet :) I feel sorry for Colin, and I get what you mean when you angsted about being in a thirteen-year-old's brain, lol. You had nothing to worry about, though, because you pulled off Colin's voice (in third person but still) and mindset so well in this story.
And I felt so sorry for Colin. Poor him :( First he works up the courage to ask Ginny out, and then Ginny says yes, then Neville asks Ginny and Colin has to face the heartbreak of that too :'( It's sad on him, and it's even sadder that he died in the battle of Hogwarts.
One thing I was wondering about -- I think it would be interesting to expand on Ginny's feelings by the end. Because Ginny's the one who snogs him, and it is a little... out of the blue, because all this time, she doesn't really seem to like him in that way. So yeah, that was something I was a little unsure about.
But still, this was a great story, so well done! :D
I thought that this was very well written. Good job!
