Post-HBP *Spoiler warning*Suddenly a loud bang sounded from across the garden and some Weasleys’ Wildfire Whizbangs lighted up the sky, but before Harry could admire them, a second loudest bang sounded. The cake had exploded.

OH, that was awesome! You had a little of something from all aspects of what the final battle had been like, without making the story too long, which is my downfall when I write. Bravo for perfect length and flawless spelling and grammar too! l loved the part where you stated that Harry got across both his resentment and respect for Snape in one look. If you ever did a flashback on this story, I would definitely read it! You really packed all of the elements of the challenge in your story admirably and the bonus phrases flow smoothly in it. I'm so glad Harry ended up with Ginny and I give this story a ten!

Author's Response: I must, at this point, thank Desslok for his offer to Beta this for me!! (I know I should put up an A/N for that). He was so helpful, and his suggestions were excellent!!Thanks for the kind words....I really do appreciate them...and are at the moment the cause of a bright blush!!!

Chapter 1: What Lay Within
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it! Harry comes to regret the day he told Ginny he could no longer see her. As he makes a wish out of the sentiment that he just wants to be alone, his whole world is tuned upside down. He is left wondering how to undo the terrible mistakes he has made.

Be careful what you wish for indeed! From blowing out a simple candle, all of this chaos! This story wraps up all of the good lessons only life can teach, like getting what we want is not always a good thing. Ron was my favourite character in this story and he really came through for Harry. I loved Ginny's strength and her understanding. This is an outstanding story and I really enjoyed it. It is a definite ten!

Oh Sunil! That was masterful! I truly loved Sarah's story and yours is the icing on that cake! I loved the description of the wild gardnes at Godric's Hollow! You sure have a way with words. I could almost see Harry unconsciously looking for Lily's in that garden for some reason. I guess because of Harry's mum's name. Maybe even some Petunias, after all, Lily could never hate as much as Petunia had and perhaps there had been some of them there at one time in the hopes of peace one day that never came...See? Good stories like this always set me to thinking. LOL about Harry thinking about the Bulldog! Good insert of humour there. The flow of your story is so natural and enjoyable. Ron casually coming in to finish Harry's tea that he was drinking and I was so very glad to see you write a 'smart' Ron. I grow tired of writers who keep him so dumb. You did Ron perfectly! He's a capable and caring individual who will still drink your tea in the morning...perfect! His psychology on Harry worked wonders and it was an enjoyable read as well. I could sense almost that Hermione was so very glad to get out of the day to day chase and go to the Burrow and it was perfect when you had her forget the birthday as concentrated as she becomes on any assignment, especially one of this magnitude! Ron is a dear for noticing she's all dressed up. I love how Harry leaves as if going off to battle, and in a sense, as it's Ginny he's going to see, he is. It was very suspenseful when she said no to the marriage proposal! I breathed a sigh of relief when she agreed! It is better to have them together for sure and I was glad you did that! Sunil my dear, you must enter a challenge! You would do awesome! I'm positive of it. You have real talent and your romance writing is to swoon over! Well done! I give it a ten!
