Chapter 9: Chapter 9 - Immersion
Yey, two chapters ! I love the closeness of Ron and Ginny, sharing their grief together. And the Weasleys... their love and all out support for Ron, understanding him, not blaming him, esp Ginny, for carrying her share of the blame.
This is a trickly situation, Ron, putting all the blame on himself. So angry with Hermione and Harry, but deep inside he knew he'll forgives them for what they did coz he still loves them both. A trio in love? At least, he's rejecting that idea because of his love for Ginny. He could perhaps live with the idea that Hermione equally loves him and Harry. Share Hermione with Harry? Perhaps. But then, if that would be the situation, it means Ginny will be out in the cold.
So it's up to Hermione to choose. If Ron and she would get back together, really start all over. then there is hope.
However, between Ginny and Harry, starting over could be quite slow since in this situation, Ginny's on the losing end. She's sharing Harry's love with Hermione, and can she accept that? She's in denial phase. Deep inside she knows that they're lovers but hoping that it's not true.
I hope you would give a good resolution between Ginny and Harry. I'd like to hear why he threw away his future and his chance of happiness with Ginny over his brotherly love for Ron - holding on to his promise to look after Hermione and later became her lover. Does his love for Ron more than his love for Ginny?
Both Harry and Ginny are weak. In canon, they're both passionate and the type who would fight for what they believe in. But here, they both easily gave up and didn't even try to have a dialogue to resolver their issues. Or confront one another.
Anyway, I have high hopes that you would resolve this tricky situation with a satisfactory, believable ending coz you are a talented writer. The images, feelings, atmosphere in your story (the angst! I love your angst), can be heartfelt by the readers. You'd make us really care for them "fictional characters" :D

Hi there! So nice to see you over here too. :o) Thank you very much for continuing to read and review- I really appreciate it!
I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying the Weasleys and the closeness. Writing the parts with Ginny are some of my favourites, which was a bit unexpected for me. I like her character, but I didn't expect those moments to be my favourites. I do have plans to do a bit of development for Ginny and Harry, though it's difficult to do it from Ron's POV. I think they are definitely coming across as weaker than their canon selves because everyone is licking their wounds.
As far as the Trio aspect is concerned, I've always been upfront about the fact that this will definitely not be turning into a Trio fic. I love Trio fics, but that's not the plan for this one.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful and thought-provoking review! It's so nice to hear about the various things you are thinking about as you read the chapter and I am very flattered by your compliments. ::hugs:: *pecan pie for you*
