Reviews For Ginny's Third Year at Hogwarts by Grandma Kate

Ginny's Third Year at Hogwarts
You're a natural fanfiction writer, and my current favorite. Loved the story so far and I'm looking forward to the next chapter. I love the details of molly's life since she is my second favorite character( Ginny is first, such a strong girl/woman) I really like the training Molly is doing and her dueling practise, and of course the talk about the unforgiven curses seeing that she will fight with bellatrix in a few years. All in all I like the detail which make your stories perfect for me, and still true to the story in the books.

This said I can't thank you enough for what you've writen so far (both this story and the others you've writen) and of course I must thank you're beta for her/his time. Both of you keep up the good work and please keep writing and I know I will enjoy to read it.

Thank you for your kind reviews. I am a comparative novice at fiction and decided that a good way to start was to borrow plot and characters from JKR and the fan fic writers that I most enjoyed. I know I would not be writing at all if St Margarets and a number of people from her flist at Live Journal had not been helpful and generous when I first started.

As I stated earlier, I identify with Molly and Ginny. Since the original books were written from Harry's point of view (or at least from the observer of his life's POV), I wanted to try writing from Molly's. I hope to post a chapter each week until I finish this current story. I'll send your review to Trelawney 22213.

Great Story, even though we all know whats going to happen next you've managed to get such a good angle on it it's getting more and more intresting all the the time.

One small mistake, fred and george took their OWLs in the third book, Ginnys second year so they would be revising for their NEWTs. Not moaning or anything it's just that you've got just about everything else perfect I thought I'd mention it.

Thank you for your timely review. You sent me back to the books.
You are, of course, correct that Fred and George took their OWLs at the end of their fourth year. And Angelina would be a bit zealous making them start revisions for their NEWTs at the very beginning of their sixth year. Hermione did.

Thanks to Trelawney2213 and the Phoenix Song technical staff, it has been corrected. Thank you again.

Wow! Fabulous chap! Definitely takes my weekend to an even higher level. I wish we heard more from Harry, though. Ron and Ginny's letters are great, although I think Ginny gets a little more independent by now. Good foreshadowing about the stuff yet to come, and I'm glad you gave Fred and Angelina's relationship a mention. Overall a wonderful chap. Can't wait for the next one!

Thanks for your review. The story that is set during Goblet of Fire is a bit tricky to keep writing just from Molly's perspective because she doesn't know everything that is happening with any of her children.

Things will pick up when she gets to go to the Third Task and she and Arthur get so involved in the Order of the Phoenix.

You are very welcome.

I have to say I think that the thing I'm enjoying most about this piece is Percy, both how you write I'm and how close you are making him to Molly, which will make the heartbreak of your next piece even more raw.

I appreciate your taking the time to write a review with your busy schedule of teaching and sports and writing, plus family. You are one busy woman.

Percy wants others to think well of him. He has such a sense of having to be responsible. I've just finished a chapter where Ginny comments that she misses him being at Hogwarts. Guess who goes upstairs to write her a letter because he is "failing in his brotherly responsibilities"?
