I did like this. I love the way Harry is portrayed here and how Ginny notices his selfless acts. Really well done.

You are really an excellent writer. I hope you will write and post many more stories here. You just capture Ginny perfectly. This story made me really really wish I had a little sister. It just makes so much sense and is so true to the character. Very very well done!!!

It all began with a sock raid gone wrong. But it turned into more. It turned into the story of one family and what they are forced to go.

Another great chapter, though the cliffhanger demands an immediate follow-up chapter!!!

Another great chapter. I love the interaction with the kids. Of course, I'm very curious to know what is up with Bill. Harry seemed a bit overly sensitive about Ron's comments. I don't think that's a criticism, more a comment. I really enjoy your work and look forward to more!

I liked this story. I'm not really familiar with the "Boxing Day" tradition, being a typically clueless Yank, but think I figured it out. Harry should just have taken his beating like a man. :) Good job!

What a great story! I hate angst, but I almost think this would have worked better as an angst story. Your characterization of Harry throughout this story is just dead-on perfect. His continual assessment of the defensibility of Hogsmeade is just great. Having been the "fifth wheel", I feel all of his pain at being forced to endure that all day long. I feel bad for Dean, too, though. It's not his fault he's not Harry. The fact that your story has me so agitated and excited is a tribute to its excellence. Great great job!!!

Just a perfect, sweet little story. Your descriptions of the emotional interplay between them is wonderful. The timing, their reactions to one another, the sweet awkwardness... all just perfect! Great job!

Excellent story... very touching! I love the image of Harry carrying her to bed and tucking her in for the night. The imagery throughout this story is really wonderful. I can absolutely see her on that couch with him kneeling down by her face. I like that she steals his clothing too. :) A couple minor nits: the "You guessed it" at the beginning is jarring. There's no need for it and it takes the reader out of the narrative flow. Also, it seems like the issue of her mother's doubts about her future is never really resolved. I guess I thought it would be more of an issue or a theme, rather than just the excuse for her to go downstairs. These are minor things, though. All in all, a great job! Very sweet!
