I didn't like how it started out, but a beautiful and plausible (slightly maybe) ending. Thank you.

Oh, wow. That was brilliant. Heart-breaking and then wonderfully happy!! If only Remus could have... But I guess that'd be too much to ask. I love the descriptions and characterizations of everyone; they seem so real. Great job with this one. I really like the ending, too!

How in the world did I miss this story from you? It's wonderful! Poor Ginny, I really felt her pain, her desperation and then her anger, guilt and ultimately hope and happiness when Harry came home to her. I love how you always find some way to inject a little humour into your stories ~ "Yeah, she. Good looking, too, if you like the Gothic look."

Snort. Poor Ginny. At least you gave Harry the smarts to quash her jealousy immediately.

What a wonderful story, I loved it!

I am glad to see that Ginny and Harry were reunited, yet I think he got out of it fairly well by only getting one slap in the face.
You could feel her grief throughout this, and the hope that he was alive and truly there in the room. Wow.

So it was you Now that I know for sure, I can leave a review without looking stupid had I made a mistake and guessed the wrong author

I really did like this fic; you went somewhat from your norm but stayed close enough to your "style" to tell it was you. I do love the wording (jealous mistress? a very nice touch ) and the explanation-which I thought was a tad short for my tastes (but I understand the word constraint on this fic so there wasn't much that could have been done)- was also well done. Love saving Harry from death is a common theme in the books and you played it out beautifully here. I think there was a quote from the books that went "You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us?" by Dumbledore and I think its quite appropriate for this story

Speaking of the characters, it was easy to relate to Ginny's bitterness. Its been five years since Harry's left, I wouldn't blame her for being cynical and sardonic. And the slap? That'll go down in the books

Great finish to a lovely story!

Intriguing plan of Dumbledore’s, very clever. I particularly like Tonks and Ginny’s exchange. Very nicely written, your expression is beautiful.

Interesting plot... rather dark. Probably a plot bunny that really should have been a rather long story... but this compact form is interesting enough. I did like the bit about death being a jealous mistress. : )

Wow, great story. I loved Harry and Ginny's reunion... especially that Ginny's first reaction was to slap Harry.

Oh, very clever explanation for how Harry could be "dead" and still be able to come back. The magic she was going to perform was an intriguing idea as well. But poor Ginny - she went through a lot. No wonder she slapped him. I like how the ring - and Ginny - are shining brightly at the end.

I feel confident in saying that I have read your work before but, alas I cannot place pen to prose. Regardless, I have enjoyed this piece.

Oh, how the pain of loss can leave one feeling empty beyond imagine. But you especially provided excellent facts about pain. It can be eased and tempered through sharing with someone. It can also dull our senses to what is right in front of our face. And, it can also make someone desperate.

Ginny’s intense grief was there and can be felt in the way you describe her efforts to reunite with Harry. I give you props for your concept that Ginny’s unfailing love for Harry helped maintain his suspended death sentence, which limited its hold on him the longer she continued her vigil. Using scripture, especially such a powerful quote (one of the most meaningful to me) as a spell was choice.

I do have one small question about the ending but that can wait for later.

~Wonderful effort!~

Beautiful. If you think about it, the death holding him captive part seems a bit implausible, but it fit together really nicely and your description of Ginny's feelings was marvellous and realistic. Thanks for sharing!

Quite a surprise ending. I'm glad I did not stop at the ritual Ginny was performing.
