Buried Gems 02-2018

The second edition of the 'Buried Gems' presents you a story probably only a few remember. I found the story three years ago with the help of the 'Random Story' feature in the top right corner of the SIYE main page. For some time this feature seems to be called 'Completed Reads' in the meantime. The title of the story made me curious, 'Light From An Open Window'. I was curious, from whose window the light would shine in the darkness, and who would be attracted by the light. The summary peaked my interest even more, and since the story was not that long, I gave it a try.

Light From An Open Window by seshhat

Summary: A warm summer night, some pensive thinking, a broomstick ride-the beginning of a new friendship and perhaps something more. Harry sees Ginny in a new light, and Ginny falls in love all over again. A night of dark memories, light-hearted conversation, deep understanding, and the glimpse of light peering from a newly opened window. In five parts. Written from the alternating perspectives of Harry and Ginny.

The story was written after OotP and posted on SIYE in 2005 before HBP has been released. It's a story about the problems of two teens in difficult times, and that friendship means to help each other.

To everybody who liked this story, I recommend reading the sequel, 'Light Reflected'.

Tell us about your favourite buried gem. Just send me an email ( with your suggestion and a few lines explaining why you like the story so much and why everybody else here should read it. The story should be complete and preferable posted at SIYE before 2010.
