a279;Harry finally manages to rejoin the world of the living, only to find himself falling for the one
girl who claimed to have given up on him. Now what is a bloke supposed to do?

Deals with the emotional roller coaster of coming out of depression and the delicious perils of first romance.

Excellent story so far. I love that Harry is forced to go through a little pain (ok, a lot of pain) to earn Ginny's love back. Lord knows, he deserves it! Your take on the characters is perfect, very realistic. Anxiously (ANXIOUSLY) awaiting the next chapter and the rest of the story as a whole!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! It wasn't THAT much pain - and heh, I always figure, I little pain is a lot of fun! For me anyway - glad you enjoyed it as well.

"Bry bumping"? Too funny! I really love this story. Ginny is right to make Harry chase her a bit, but I'm glad things are moving along a bit quicker than making the poor sod wait till summer! You're an excellent writer and I'm really looking forward to more!

Author's Response: Alas, I couldn't make him wait till the summer, for the simple reason I SOOOO didn't want to deal with Voldie. So Harry got of easy due to my laziness. Heh. Thanks for all the reivews! Sadly Chapter Eight is the last chapter of this story - but there IS a sequel - Bumbling Towards Ecstasy and I will start posting it soon.

Author's Response: Man - both these last two responses have typos - I'm going too fast! Sorry.

Very cute story. I really like the imagery of him waking up on the couch with Ginny in his arms. His thought process as he figures out what is going on is priceless. A couple nits: no X in ecstasy and the word "sucked" just seems wrong coming from Harry. All in all, a fun, light story that I enjoyed reading! Thank you for writing it! :)

Chapter 1: I'm Terrified By You
A song is sung at a party given right before Harry's 7th year at hogwarts...there are flashbacks back through the past year between Harry and Ginny.

Not very good at summaries....I've been told this is a good story though...

Great, great song that I've long thought would be perfect for a H/G songfic. I should have know that someone had already done one. I love how you interlaced the flashbacks with the actual lyrics. Really, a wonderful job.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I've seen just a very few that have used this song but the first time I heard the song after reading the Harry Potter books I thought it was perfect for Harry/Ginny! So Thank you very much!

Great start! You've done a really nice job with the characters. They're very true to the books. I like the bit at the end, especially. I'd think the Weasleys would all be trying to help Harry and Ginny sort things out, or at least give them the chance to do so. I hope it ends happy, but will keep reading nonetheless. Thank you for posting!

Very wonderful story. Your characterizations are superb. I think you ended at the right place. I look forward to reading more of your stories! Thank you for writing it.


Chapter 4: Power He Knows Not
It's Ginny's birthday and she can't seem to get away from the cruelty of her brothers Fred and George. Evil stuffed animal ducks, duck hats, butterbeer and lots of laughs! Read to find out what happens!

This is even better the second time around, though I miss the soundtrack. Very cute and funny story. "Your duck is whack" now enters the pantheon of great quotes.
