Very good overall. I like your Harry and Ginny, there were lots of fun moments and the tension was there. I was uncomfortable with the sexual scenes, which doesn't seem quite fair, because I've read stronger stuff...but there you go. I think it was a bit sudden for me. Whatever. Still, good writing!

This is an excellent story. I really enjoyed the interaction of all the participants. I'm glad Harry made friends with Lupin again. Ginny and Harry getting together was amazing and Ginny supporting him and not correcting him because she didn't want to "spoil the moment" was great. It made Harry feel better I'm sure. Thanks for writing. I look forward to the sequel. I am going to go back and read "Gold" also. p

This was really fun. And I totally liked the idea of Harry having to pursue Ginny.

Amazing story. I like it a lot. Except I can't seem to access chapter 7.

Is there a particular reason for this?

Cute story! I loved it... I like the way Harry and Ginny got together almost more than how it went in canon.

'my sister's name is Ginevra . . . Well, now that's embarrassing . . . Why didn't you tell me your name was Ginevra? . . . I liked that you were calling me by my full name . . . Even if it were the wrong one?'

Good story. I love the idea of Harry "officially" gaining a new friend in Lupin. The two have a great deal they can learn from each other and I'm glad you decided to allow them some time together. Their sharing makes for a good way to give us insight into Harry's feelings as well, so it's a good machine to use for advancing the plot.

I was a bit concerned about the plot at first because it took some time to get going but it was well worth it. One of my favorite parts was Ginny's explanation of how Ron and Hermione got together. Very plausible theory, by the way, but I just loved how Harry was completely oblivious. It also served very well as a vehicle for introducing Ginny's power to bring Harry out of his shell.

You must also allow me a moment to give a little nudge on another topic. While I don't wholly object to the sexual actions of Harry and Ginny, it made me, as the reader, a bit uncomfortable for a few moments. I understand that they are teenagers who are likely to do this sort of thing. Plus, you used the result to great effect to give some back story on Harry. I have no trouble with that. Fundamentally, my concern is really that it seemed quite sudden. We see that Ginny and Harry still "love" each other, but there aren't heaps of evidence showing that love as true and deep. Here we are reading along - noting that they haven't even kissed yet - and Ginny jumps Harry and everything goes wild from there. It's just... a bit sudden. Perhaps it's just my old-fashioned side showing through. Sigh.

Of course, I loved how you had Ron react to Harry's proclamation of love for Ginny. I think that's quite how Ron wanted things to work out. Harry's preparation and behavior is classic and almost made me laugh out loud! He can really be insecure sometimes!

The whole "Ginny" name thing was a bit funny, probably even more so because of your Author's Note at the beginning. It might have helped us little to get that worked out sooner in the story because I started getting a little confused after several chapters.

All-in-all I liked the story and I'll have to go off and read the rest now to find out what happens. Cheers!

Oh I loved this, you had me grinning like a nutter at Harry and his PJ dilemma, and giggling along with Hermione.

Well I'm off to read the sequel now

Cute...I loved that he was getting her name wrong. At first I just figured you didn't know that when you wrote it....But that made it priceless! Can't wait to read the sequel...

So so glad the name payed off for you. I've heard from so many people after they read the first couple of chapters and thought I'd messed up, that I have worried a bit that the joke doesn't work in the end.

Hope you like the sequel! And thank you for all the reviews!

OOHhh! For some reason the alert sent to me didn't get ... well, sent, and I just checked it now! Wow. I can't believe it's over... Ron was so funny; Harry's such an idiot. Can't WAIT for the sequel! I love that line:
Because life doesn't end five minutes after you beat the Big Bad, and winning the girl is only half of the story.
You should use it for the summary or something. Anyway, it's been a very enjoyable ride! n.n I love this story... MUST BE MORE!!!

Actually - that IS part of the summary! Cool - glad you liked it so much!

Sent the first couple chapters off to the beta today - so hopefully you will start seeing updates soon. Thank you very much for all the lovely reviews!

That's wicked cute! I cannot wait for the sequel! When will it be finished? And, no, I didn't think that the scenes between G/H were weird, just a little...descriptive. But you have a really good story going, and I hope you continue on with it so you won't kill me and the rest of your loyal readers with suspension.

What a lovely ending. *sigh* Thanks for this lovely story - a very nice mix of the serious and the fluffy. I just love Ron's laid back attitude in this chapter. Every time I read this I get one of those grins that just won't go away. My favourite line: And she moved her thigh. That's just a perfect example of what I love about reading your story - all the hilarious one-liners that show us what's really going on in Harry's head! I look forward to the sequel.

Very fluffy, even though the scenes at the beginning seem slightly overdone. If it had been a little less brutal it would have been more realistic. Just a detail, though. - Well done, thanks a lot.

Things like pushing her off his lap weren't meant to be entirely realisitc - just funny. Oh well. Different strokes. Glad you still liked it! And thank you for all the reviews!
