What happens when Harry Potter gets angry? This time it's not about Voldemort, but Ginny Weasley....

GrrrrrROWR! Looks likes "Harry's Beast" got the better of him! LOL! OOC, yes, but I liked it just the same. They belong together, and hey, if it takes being tortured by PDA right in front of him....who am I to say it's wrong? Loved this, great job!

Ginny is raped, and the people around her try to help her get over it. Harry is there by her side, but will she ever want to be with someone again? They are in love, but Ginny pushes him away, not sure if she could ever be with someone again!

Wow. This looks to be like it will be quite a powerful story. Rape is such a difficult topic to write about, and you have done so respectfully and tastefully. Thank you for sparing us the majority of the details of the actual rape itself...the message was portrayed quite clearly as was the horror Ginny was going through. I honestly had tears in my eyes several times while reading this chapter. While I can't say I like the subject matter, especially happening to Ginny, who is my favorite character after Harry, you have done an excellent job on this story. It's very well written and I am actually looking forward to seeing how Harry, Hermione and the Weasley's help Ginny recover and heal. And, I hope you have a good punishment in mind for the ferret and his goons...they deserve to be skinned alive and fed to Buckbeak, with their scraps tossed to the Giant Squid to be finished off for instigating such a horrible act. Well done!

Well, I certainly enjoyed this chapter more than the first one. Your description of Harry and Ginny's first kiss and how their relationship started is beautiful and romantic, and makes what happened to Ginny all the more tragic. Wonderful job. I hope Ginny lets Harry and her family help her heal.


Chapter 2: Questions and answers

Wonderful chapter. It's so heartbreaking what they're going through, but I'm glad Ginny's letting Harry help her through this, even if only a little. I am really looking forward to seeing where you take this story next. Well done.

The Talk by BillHagridsson [Young Teens]

No, not that Talk. Rather, an alternate version of the one the Weasley brothers seem to delight in giving to any of Ginny's prospective suitors. Major Fluff Warning

ahhhhh....I love this ficlet! I have to agree with Ginny & Ron...Hermione asking Harry if he was gay was hysterical! It would be just like her, too. I also like all the boys ganging up on Harry and forcing him to tell Ginny his feelings...I hope you write some outtakes with the show tunes! Great job Bill!

Author's Response: hmmm...show tunes...interesting concept...just may have to, at some point.

I really loved this one-shot. It was very cute - Ginny rambling on for hours after the Pepper-Up potion and Harry thinking about doing the same to the twins was just great. I would love to see you continue this, at least to the next morning, to read Ginny's reaction to waking up in Harry's arms and them getting back together. This was just great. I thoroughly enjoyed this little glimpse into the lives of my favorite HP couple! Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you for the nice words. I always thought of this story as a one-shot, but by now I'm really considering writing the morning after ... I'm only missing big idea for it at the moment. We'll see if a plot-bunny will find its way into my home ;)



Chapter 1: A Long Night

What if the fates that†let Harry's parents live the night he got his scar,†also gave him a younger sister and let him befriend Ron Weasley earlier? What would be different?

This is such a great start! While I've read other "Harry's parents live" fics, I haven't read any which start quite like this, nor which have Harry getting an early start with the Weasley's, like I suspect you're headed in this fic. Great job! I am really looking forward to seeing where you take this story!

Great detail! Yes, Nevilleís character would be quite different if his parentís hadnít been tortured into insanity and he hadnít been raised by his overbearing grandmother, wouldnít it? And, with Harry being immersed in the wizarding world his whole life (with constant exposure to James, Sirius and Lupin), it totally makes sense he would do well in his classes. Great job on this chapter, Ben!

Author's Response: Thanks for all your reviews, Sorry about the late response. I'm still getting used to the site's methods. Stay tuned for the next update. As a reward for your review, I will tell you that the first year isnt't too different from the books, but it starts to change in the trio's second year and third year will be quite different.

Interesting how youíve changed Arthurís job and eliminated how poor the Weasleyís are. Thatís an interesting twist. I imagine though, with James, Sirius and the Longbottomís still around, a slightly different (and more prestigious) career path for Arthur would make sense. If nothing else, that would be 3 more prominent, pure-blood families with tolerance / fondness toward Muggles. Oh, man. A new generation of Marauders with the twins, Ron and Harry! I donít know if the school could survive, LOL! Great chapter!


Chapter 2: First Time to Hogwarts
Due to multiple mishaps on the holiday in question, Ginny Weasley decides that it is time to not only boycott Valentine's Day but Harry Potter as well.

This was a very cute story! I hope it continues; I'd be very interested to see if Ginny actually can "boycott" Harry! Great job, I really enjoyed this story!
