Author's Response: You know, I wouldn't be surprised if he ran into Ginny somewhere along the way. JKR said something about us seeing more of Ginny's strength or power - when she was talking about the importance of her being the seventh child. So, I'm hoping that means she won't just be the bookends. I don't think he'll take her - but that doesn't mean she won't be involved some other way. And thank you for the lovely review! Playing in your mind? That's awesome - thank you!
